Edge of Evolution
I have a song or two sung by Cliff Richard, but I couldn't really make that stretch. It was too taxing.
HA - get it??
I love me! (xoxoxo, me!)
I have a feeling, for my reading public, you already guess my stance on the "fiscal cliff" - a term that has been bandied about since before the election and has been in the news each and every day since.
It's not that I don't think the Dems can't find ways to cut some expenses, and I think they have, but clearly the GOP has learned nothing from their defeats of 2012. Their stuck in the mud mentality is well....stuck in the mud.
I get folks who forget history and are doomed to repeat it, but this "history" on what the U.S. citizens want (save the 1%) is only a few weeks old. It is so not unreasonable to tax the wealthy and close their loopholes. Of course, I'm for taxing religious organizations as well (though in theory, that could blur the line between church and state that has already slid down that slick slick slope).
We are run by a group of morons.
Continually hearing about this has reminded me of some West Wing episodes of fiscal impasse. Art imitates life imitating art.
