American Lady..........you need to stop posting articles. They are copyrighted and you can only post the first sentence with a link. In case you haven't noticed, I've removed quite a few of your posts so it's worth it to continue posting like that when they get removed anyway.
I am needing some consideration of this.
Showing you this post, and why my posts are being deleted.
She saw this "warning" the same as me.
I am not just a school kid on here tattling.
I happen to be a Mature White Female that is VERY worried about the direction our Country is going.
NOT a trouble-maker at ALL!
Concern for this Nation is the ONLY reason that I'm posting here, to put out info, that in my opinion needs to be put out.
Some others on here happen to agree.
The other Patriots concerned about their children and grand children's lives and posterity.
Just today I have been accused of being a "terrorist" ...

Last night I was actually "threatened" by one, wanting to go "gansta" on me.
What am I to do?
I appreciate your consideration of this matter.

Republicans losing public opinion wars in "fiscal cliff" talks
By Fred Barbash | Reuters – 59 mins ago
WASHINGTON (Reuters)- Negotiations are expected to continue Thursday on the "fiscal cliff" with Republicans at a growing public opinion disadvantage and approval ratings for President Barack Obama rising to levels not seen since the killing of Osama bin Laden.
Senior Democratic Senator Kent Conrad of North Dakota said on MSNBC late Wednesday that he thought Obama and House of Representatives Speaker John Boehner were edging closer to a deal.
He added that he hoped something will be announced next week to avert the steep tax hikes and budget cuts set for the start of 2013.
"I believe that they will have a framework agreement," Conrad said. "I believe they'll have it early next week. And I believe it will secure the votes in both the Senate and the House. We may miss some on the wings, but I think the center will hold."
Republican Representative Kevin Brady of Texas, in a Fox Business News interview Wednesday evening, disagreed with Conrad's assessment.
"I started pretty optimistic about this that we could get this done well before the holidays, but I don't feel that way anymore," Brady said. "It seems to me a decision's been made perhaps by the White House already to take us off this fiscal cliff."
Conservative Republican Senator Jim DeMint of South Carolina said the economy had already been damaged by the uncertainty caused by the deadlock.
"We can't fix it Christmas Eve and expect it all to bounce back in January," he said Thursday on CBS.
Sharp differences remained between congressional Republicans and the White House in talks to avert the cliff, and negotiators warned the showdown could drag on past Christmas.
Both sides refused to give any ground in public, with the main sticking point being the expiring tax cuts, which Obama wants extended for all but high earners and Boehner wants extended for everyone.
Polling shows strong support for Obama's position. According to a Wall Street Journal/NBC survey released late Wednesday, three-quarters of Americans say they would accept raising taxes on the wealthy to avoid the cliff.
Among Republicans, some 61 percent say they would accept tax increases on high earners....(cont.)
