Realtime thought Fox News made up the phrase "fiscal cliff".

Of course, it was being reported by CNN, ABC and NBC which I had to post to get him in the loop. Not to mention it's on the lips of everyone on Capital Hill these days.

Even so, Realtime still thinks he knows everything. Like the growing number of store chains cutting back employees hours to avoid paying benefits because they aren't good workers...or something like that.

How do you reason with somebody like that?

This is what America wanted? ObamaCare Work Disincentives: 4 Cliffs Hit Employees
In the time of Caesar, all roads led to Rome. In the time of ObamaCare, seemingly every path heads straight for a cliff.
The health law is filled with cliffs where the returns for more work take a nose-dive.
The Congressional Budget Office has estimated ObamaCare will "reduce the amount of labor used in the economy by roughly 1/2 a percent" — about 800,000 full-time jobs..........DS1y2sX8
Here is what I just love about you uninformed right whiners. I stopped reading your humongus pile of horse crap with the 800,000 job loss claim.

What the CBO said was that there were significant number of people who were working extra hours to just cover their healthcare cost.

The CBO said that Obamacare would lower their costs & therefore, the number of extra hours they needed to work to pay for their premiums would be lower.

These hours would be the equivalent to 800,000 jobs.

So no, it does not cut 800,000 jobs - that is a blatant lie.

It is actually a good thing that people would have to work fewer hours to pay for the health insurance costs.

My God, is there no end to the number of lies you people tell??

All anyone has to do is compare the state of Texas to the state of California. They both have the largest populations and they both have similar demographics.

But Texas is predominantly conservative and of the mindset the less government, the better. They have a deficit of 1.3 billion and one of the lowest unemployment rates in the country.

California, in contrast, is predominantly liberal and are of the mindset there's no such thing as too much government. They have a deficit of 16 billion and one of the highest unemployment rates in the country.

There is also an exodus of people moving out of California to Texas.

In late February 2012, Ben Bernanke, chairman of the U.S. Federal Reserve, popularized the term "fiscal cliff" for this crisis.

Ben Bernanke supposedly coined the phrase fiscal cliff and FOX ran with it, with it's halfwit news readers barely able to complete a paragraph without including the phrase.

The GOP’s Shallow Bench on Foreign Policy

Looking at the Republican “bench” of new political talent, two things stand out. The first is that virtually all of the party’s rising stars have as little foreign policy experience as Romney, and in some cases they have even less. That will make it more difficult for any of them to strike out in a new direction even if one of them wished to do so. The other is that, with the exception of Rand Paul, not one of them has expressed serious doubts or reservations about the Bush foreign policy record or questioned the desirability of an extremely activist and interventionist U.S. role in the world. Those most admired by activists and pundits remain firmly hawkish and supportive of aggressive foreign policy, and they remain convinced that this is one of their party’s strengths. They’re wrong about this, but unfortunately they seem to remain oblivious to that fact.

I'm convinced your problem is plain and simple ignorance. Either that or you believe what any leftwing propaganda source tells you.

A petition was signed by almost 9,000 parents of children with disabilities against the UN's CRPD.

The petition states, "As the parent or family member of a person with disabilities, or as one who lives with a disability, I join with Joni and Friends in urging the United States Senate to reject ratification of the United Nations' Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. This treaty threatens the traditional right of parents to direct the upbringing, education, and care of their children, especially if those children live with disabilities, and it limits the ability of the U.S. Congress to make laws for Americans."

Michael Farris, founder and chairman of the Home School Legal Defense Association, highlights the concerns of parents across the country.

"We all want to show our love and care for people with disabilities," Farris said. "But all of the rights that parents have under traditional American law, especially the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, will be undermined by this treaty. The United States is a leader in rights for persons with disabilities because we have stuck to the policy of Americans making law for Americans, and that principle should not be undermined."

Texas also has the most % of workers at only minimum wage. Hard to have anything at $15,000.00 per year income.

You can't. just like a few others on her no matter how many times you show them they still believe the talking points they have been spoon fed. Only when the true reality crashes down on them will they understand. Even then they will blame Bush and the republicans.

The CBO warned of a "fiscal cliff" in May 2012, a little over a month after Federal Reserve Chairman, Ben Bernanke.

Fox "ran with it" because it was news. Something your black out media won't touch with a 10-foot pole.

Teabaggers still see a chance to stop President Obama from being reelected

This seems like an excellent use of time and not in any way totally bugfuck crazy at all:

A state senator from north-central Idaho is touting a scheme that’s been circulating on tea party blogs, calling for states that supported Mitt Romney to refuse to participate in the Electoral College in a move backers believe would change the election result.

Sen. Sheryl Nuxoll, R-Cottonwood, sent an article out on Twitter headed, "A ‘last chance’ to have Mitt Romney as President in January (it’s still not too late)."

Constitutional supergenius state Sen. Sheryl Nuxoll isn't totally insane, by the way. Oh no. She's just, you know, asking the question. The question being, "Can we teabaggers continue to live in denial a little longer that we suffered a resounding defeat this election?" (Answer: Sure. Knock yourselves out. Send all the nutty conspiracy theory emails to each other you want.)

Here's the big plan to save America from the black Kenyan socialist Muslim something something black guy:

[I]f 17 of the 24 states that Romney carried refuse to participate in the Electoral College, the college would have no quorum, throwing the presidential pick to the GOP-controlled House of Representatives.

And here's an actual constitutional scholar patiently using little words to explain why nuh-uh:

The problem with that, Adler said, is that it’s based on a misreading of the 12th Amendment, which notes when no candidate receives a majority in the Electoral College, the decision moves to the House, where each state would have one vote and a quorum of two-thirds of the states would be required.“The two-thirds reference in the 12th Amendment is a reference not to the Electoral College but rather to the establishment of a quorum in the House of Representatives,” he said.

To win in the Electoral College, a presidential candidate needs only to get at least 270 electoral votes, Adler said. No quorum is required.

“The author touted by Sen. Nuxoll is confusing the Electoral College with the House of Representatives,” Adler said.

Electoral College, House of Representatives—hey, same difference, right?

Whatevs. The entire Republican Party, including its presidential ticket, was "shellshocked" that unskewing the gay math didin't lead to a Romney landslide, so it makes sense that in the wingiest corners of the party, they're still trying to unskew the election too.

Keep working on that, teabaggers. Please. In fact, spend all your time and money on exactly that.
