The best thing that happened in the past 4 years is the fiscal cliff.
And, now, the Democrats are trying to do anything they can to resume the insanity that consumed our government the past 4 years and drive our government further into the hole they are digging.

Advice for Democrats:

Back away from the shovel.

We need to cut spending. The fiscal cliff cuts spending.
We need to raise taxes. The fiscal cliff raises taxes.

What the hell is wrong with that?

What living within your means actually means...

"According to Toshl's data, users in Western Europe earn an average of $2,062 per month, but spend $2,396. This is an average monthly deficit of $334 per person, or roughly 16% of income.

Toshl users in the United States are in even worse shape, earning on average $1,871 per month. But they spend $2,290 per month, an average monthly deficit of $419, or 22% of income.

So who in the world is living within their means? Australian, Brazilian, Russian, Canadian, Filipino, and Indian users all show positive surpluses each month. Chinese and Singaporeans are essentially at breakeven levels"

WELL, CRACKER, HERE'S WHAT I THINK: I THINK WE WENT OFF THE FISCAL CLIFF 12 YEARS AGO WHEN GEORGE BUSH JUNIOR WAS SELECTED PRESIDENT. NONETHELESS, HERE'S THE FORMULA YOU..(BORINGLY, REPEATEDLY).. SEEK:
1. FIRST, THE MILITARY MUST BE TOTALLY DISBANDED. NOT JUST A FEW PARTS OF IT, THE WHOLE THING. TO REPLACE IT, STATES WILL BE ENTITLED TO MAINTAIN MILITIAS WHICH CAN BE ASSEMBLED WHENEVER SOMEBODY RIDES INTO TOWN ON HORSEBACK ANNOUNCING AN IMMINENT THREAT.
2. END ALL CURRENT "PREMEPTIVE" WARS AND DENY BENEFITS TO CONTRACTORS AND INDIVIDUALS WHO PROFITED FROM THEM.
3. DEFUND THE CIA AND NSA AND PRIVATIZE THEM.
4. FEDERAL TAX RATE, CORPORATE TAX RATE, CAPITAL GAINS RATE IS NOW 50% FROM THIS POINT FORWARD. STATES ARE FREE TO SET THEIR TAXES WHEREVER THEY WISH. THERE WILL BE NO EXEMPTIONS.
5. EACH FAMILY MAY PRODUCE OR ADOPT TWO CHILDREN, NO MORE.
6. THE ENERGY INDUSTRY, THE FINANCIAL INDUSTRY, THE PHARMACEUTICAL INDUSTRY, AND THE INSURANCE INDUSTRY WILL BE NATIONALIZED.
THAT'S ABOUT IT FOR ME, HOW'D I DO? I'M PRETTY SURE WE END UP WITH A SURPLUS AND THE ASSHOLES WILL ALL BE FLYING TO BELGIUM WHERE THEY WILL FIND ABOUT THE SAME THING, HAPPILY.

Bush-Bashing is neither a formula nor a solution but a knee-jerk propaganda response from knee-jerks like you.

Formula I seek? Being extremely simple, the answer to the fiscal cliff requires no formula but only a President and not a Boy Messiah.

Liberal Politics of Hero-Worship, Celebrity-Sucking and Vote-Buying solves nothing but costs us dearly.

Charles Krauthammer: Obama Showing 'Great Skill, Ruthless Skill' In Fiscal Cliff Talks

Columnist and Fox News pundit Charles Krauthammer said Thursday that he thinks President Obama has been acting with "great skill" in the negotiations over the so-called "fiscal cliff."

Talks have continually stalled as the GOP and the Obama administration struggle to produce a deal about how much to raise taxes or cut spending. On Friday, the president summoned Congressional leaders to the White House for one more attempt at an accord.

Krauthammer told Hannity that Obama had been able to create a "civil war" over taxes within the GOP. Several high-profile Republicans have said that the party should concede to raising taxes on people making over $250,000.

"He's been using this -- and I must say with great skill, and ruthless skill, and success -- to fracture and basically shatter the Republican opposition," he said. "The only redoubt of the opposition is the House. And his objective from the very beginning was to break the will of the Republicans in the House, and to create an internal civil war, and he's done that. How did he do it? By always insisting from day one after the election that Republicans had to raise rates ... he did that because he knew it would create a crisis among Republicans, and it did."

Hannity, predictably, did not give Obama quite as much credit.

Hobby Lobby to defy courts over contraceptive ruling and impose religious views on workers

Hobby Lobby made its decision after a ruling Wednesday by U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotamayor denied the company an emergency injunction while its lawsuit works its way through the appeal courts.

The company's owners say they should not have to comply with the Health and Human Services requirement because it impinges on their religious beliefs. Imposing their religious views on their employees doesn't bother them, however.

... idiots.
Regardless of when wealthy people began to inhabit the Earth, those the Democrats call "rich" don't even have that much money if you taxed them at 100 percent and made them destitute. There just isn't enough money available to be taxed to pay for the Obama government. So...
Where do you plan to get the money from to pay for the Obama government?
Equal outcome... do you mean like ObamaKare? It seems everyone is equal there without exception of who pays for all of it. The crackhead is equal to the engineer in every way except who pays for the whole goddam thing. This is unquestionably Marxist.
A person works to have a mobile phone. Ever hear of the ObamaPhone? A person works to eat. Ever hear of foodstamps? A person works to buy a house. It was the Democrats' Marxist subprime housing mortgage underwriting program that collapsed our economy in an attempt to create equal outcome.
Again, we are back to the question. Where are you going to get the money from to pay for the Obama government?
The only sane thing the government did in the past 4 years was to create this fiscal cliff if the insanity of our government didn't cure itself.
We need cuts to the government. The fiscal cliff makes those cuts. We need increased taxes. The fiscal cliff increases taxes.
Problem (sort of) solved. That's better than the headlong sprint to a collapsed government we've seen for the past 4 years.
Where the f*ck did your hero GW Bush get the money to fund his government?

Well, dumbf*ck answer that.

Where does any government get the money operate. I understand that you, being a dumbf*ck, never figured out where governments get their money.

You failed to answer the question. Were there wealthy people prior to 2000? Did anyone try to make money for not?

Obamacare has NOTHING to do with equal outcomes. The idea you think it does once again demonstrates your complete stupidity.

You keep forgetting that Republicans created this recession. They voted to take us off the path of balanced budgets & paying down the debt.

Bush ran for election on this & dumbf*cks like you voted for him.

Bush cut revenues while expanding government & starting two wars. And you blame Democrats.

Please tell me where Boehner's name appears in the below post:
When the Democrats took control of all the purse strings of government, they had a 0.16 (that's zero point one six) trillion dollar deficit.
What have the Democrats done to that deficit since?
When the Democrats took control of all the purse strings of government, the total public debt was 8 trillion dollars, only 3 trillion dollars added to the debt since January, 2001, the year of the dot-com bust and the Arab jihad declaring a global war on the United States.
What have the Democrats done to that debt since?
... goddam idiots.
And, since you're typing away...
Where are you going to get the money from to pay for Obama's government?
My God, you are an idiot.

You keep whining how all debt & deficits starting in 2007 was the Democrats fault because they took the House & the House controls spending.

Well, dumbf*ck, Boehner & the Republicans took the House in 2011.

So I guess they were then responsible for all debt & deficits in 2011 & 2012.

LOL!
Besides, you have it bass ackwards as usual (to make your lame point). Out of the millions of guns owned domestically in the USA, a very small percentage are used to kill people. Guns were also designed to "protect" people or for sport/hunting/target shooting, which is what "all" law abiding people use them for.
That bit of common sense is foreign to a loon like you, idiot.
Have fun at your crappy job next week. Change a toilet for me, will ya, dummy.

RealDave let’s assign blame were blame belongs….Democratic Party!!
Obama Has Now Increased Debt More than All Presidents from George Washington Through George H.W. Bush Combined!!
When Pelosi took office Jan. 4, 2007 the National Dept. was (8.6 trillion) at the close of business on Oct. 22, the Dept. stood at (13.67 trillion) an increase of approximately 5 trillion., the $3.22 trillion in new debt accumulated during the record-setting 111th Congress!!
Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner oversaw the largest increase in the national debt of any Treasury secretary in American history, presiding over a $3.7 trillion increase in the debt!! Dave if we listen to you Democrats haven’t created one penny of Debt but the Facts show otherwise!!
