Told ya so

in this post I predicted that this whole fiscal cliff bullshit would be pushed down the road:

I was right:

When will we vote them all out? Oh, never mind, too many people have a stake in the game, on both sides of the political aisle, and from all walks of life.

Slow is the repetition of history, but it does indeed repeat. One day folks will be reading about the "Rise and Fall of the American Empire."

Merry Christmas

Born is Hope;
Arrives a promise;
Unto us, this silent night,
The angels did,
And the words
And the words,
Came to so many
Come harder with time.
Until the Hope is
Is felt;
Not connected to the words
Inside and around,
Encircling and releasing.
This Hope:

Honest question

When there are riots and killings over "Zero Dark-Thirty", will this administration condemn itself? Will the President, the Secretary of State, and various other mouthpieces apologize for supplying the information that led to the making of this movie?
Will they apologize for killing the leader of Al queda, which led to the making of this movie?
Will they take responsibility for the deaths that are to come?

They created the cliff

What the heck is wrong with us, the American people? The politicians created this cliff we are about to go over, they voted on, and the President signed, legislation that was supposed to force them to reign in spending and find places to 'increase revenue'. They didn't. Instead they all campaigned to keep their jobs and we, the American people, sent most of them back.
Why the hell are we shocked that this is happening? They told us it would. History shows that they will not fix things, only make them worse.
Prediction: Grand bargain that pushes real decisions to the future...oh, wait...that is were we are NOW.

This is law, this cliff thing was created, voted on, and signed. IT IS THE EFFING LAW, since they did not do their jobs, were too busy trying to get re-elected, they now have to face the consequences, which is going to hurt this country.

Do they care about that? Maybe, a little. What they care more about is getting elected again, to not be seen as the party that allowed this to happen.

Let me clue them in: It was both parties.
