    I believe that Obama and his leftist cabal will thwart any effort to prevent the fiscal disaster scheduled for January 1st. When that happens, and very likely before, the nation's credit rating will be lowered again. The country will be one giant step closer to the socialist "utopia", like that of Greece, that Obama fervently desires. For good measure Obama will be able to blame the Republicans for the disaster and then we will all be like the serfs of old!

    We are in bad shape and it's been rolling snowball for quite a number of years.

    What I don't understand - and my expertise on national budgeting is limited to my own experience in handling my own personal estate - is that there seems to be other answers to our economic problems than raising taxes on the wealthy which doesn't seem to actually promote trillions of future capital all by itself.

    What about:
    • grossly reducing spending - GROSSLY
    • severely capping tax deductions
    Certainly not one single remedy alone is going to help us.

    Why is only one remedy being promoted? Or am I missing something?

    On or about the time the US is driven over the cliff by "O"-----I realize that I will be going over the edge alongside my favorite Republicans-----BUT-----I also realize that we're not the only ones that will be going over----but that every idiot that voted for Obama AND Obama himself will be going over ------ all at the same time!!! He may be amune to being "taxed" for Obamacare-----but he won't be amune to that cliff!!!!!!!

    > then we will all be like the serfs of old!

    80% of us ARE like the serfs of old! We are a new kind of serf, not divided up and assigned to specific estates but in aggregate who are working for or under the control of the international corporations.

    Some folks just need to get over their delusions about International Corporations. Good grief. Take your meds or see a psychiatrists or something.

    If the country does go over the so-called "Fiscal cliff" a lot of people will suffer but I don't believe that Obama and his leftist cabal care. As Romney said during the campaign the rich will make out ok regardless. All those swilling at the taxpayer trough in DC will do fine, especially those who are wealthy like Reid and Obama!

    There is a bright side to all this. If we do go over the "cliff" all those people who have been living in denial about the huge militarized police state that has been built up around us over the last few decades might finally realize that it wasn't being built to protect us from terrorists at all.

    It was built to protect the tyrants from the people. To bad it has to take something terrible happening to wake people up, but I reckon that's the cost of living in denial for so long.

    "nation state as a fundamental unit of man's organized life has ceased to be the principal creative force: International banks and multinational corporations are acting and planning in terms that are far in advance of the political concepts of the nation-state." Zbigniew Brzezinski Between Two Ages: The Technetronic Era, 1971.

    Some folks need to put the sleeping pills away. Good grief. Wake up and smell the coffee.

    So do you take yours before or after you copy and paste?

    Ya can't have it both ways SN. If you don't want to be shown the evidence you keep asking for don't keep asking for it.

    You won't take my word so I give you Brzezinski's word and you don't like that either so you insult me. If you would take it upon yourself to get educated I wouldn't have to keep "cutting and pasting" things all the time. Brzezinski wrote those words in 1971. I read this book in 1990. I'm way ahead of you in the knowledge curve. You need to do alot of reading to catch up and sitting in your chair 24 hours a day posting childish insults isn't getting you any closer to becoming knowledgeable enough to have a meaningful discussion with me about the NWO.

    If you prefer to remain ignorant that's fine with me. Just don't read what I "cut and paste" and we'll get along great. It ain't my fault you are so ignorant about things that others have known for years. That's all on you brother. You made that choice all on your own.

    You can deny it but you can't erase it. It's out there. It's been out there. It's staying out there. It's to late to stop it from being printed. If you got problems with it take it up with Brzezinski. He's the one who wrote it.

    BTW, I recommend you start your education process with another of Brzezinski's books. "The Grand Chessboard". It's all about geopolitics and geostrategy. Two studies you have shown little aptitude in. :smilewinkgrin:
