Revenge of the Republicans! That's what I call the so called fiscal cliff crisis. The fanatics in the GOP are determined to exact spending cuts from the middle class and keep the tax cuts for the rich, despite being roundly rejected at the polls on election day. This is payback to all those who dared vote for President Obama because he was giving out free stuff, like unemployment benefits, agriculture, the military, law enforcement, disabled veterans, access to quality affordable health care, college aide, and weather forecasting. Here's the problem, in an attempt to hurt Obama voters, republicans will be hurting their base, and I don't mean the 1%, I mean the 47%. Can you say bite off your nose to spite your face?
Proving they have a short attention span, the media turned it's attention away from the victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre, and to some extent the gun control debate. I guess petitions to have Talking TeeVee Pundit Heads deported/arrested for embarrassing the NRA will do that. We also have to worry about reactionary lawmakers making laws that trample our civil liberties and enrich the gun dealers. BTW, did the you know the NRA was inspired by the Black Panthers?
Meanwhile, under the radar, The Senate just passed the FISA Amendments Act Authorization Act of 2012. The more things change, the more they remain the same. Sigh.
Etu Cancer Treatment Centers of America? Is nothing sacred? SMH
20 days to sign the petition for President Obama to begin to restore honor and integrity to the Justice Department.
