Tirade - fiscal cliff
I don't know about you but I'm getting a little tired of all this fiscal cliff talk and the blame game that our elected officials like to play with us. After all it is not us that caused this problem, it is the very same politicians that got us here. I would like to suggest that the GOP stop all this procrastinating and allow the Dems to do what they want. Of course, it would be useful if someone with some common sense explains sensibly what is likely to happen to the job market when we stick up taxes and penalise the achievers - read Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged for a possible outcome. It might only take about a year for things to go the way the GOP fears, and then they are in a position to say a very large "told you so!" However, if taxing the achievers and giving free stuff to those sitting in the wagon, works, then hey, let's all climb back on. This is not tough stuff to figure out. Come on People!
