Hey Ben, Before you fire up the money presses again, ask yourself how adding 6 trillion dollars to our deficit under you and Obama's watch created this "fiscal cliff." Do you have any clue what the hell you fools are doing?

This is awesome! Did you know that just today more then 140 prominent conservatives sent a letter to all U.S. Republican legislators telling them that in NO way are they to deal with those democrats on that fiscal cliff thing….and telling them that there WILL be consequences if the do! From the letter: “If Republicans cave in now, when it really counts, next time you will be weaker, because your conservative base will be outraged”. “Many who worked hard to elect you in the past will never lift a finger for you again.” I just love it when conservatives truly stand up for America! Wow! Even Virginia Thomas, the wife of Supreme Court Justice Clearance Thomas, signed it! Just like we have been saying all along….those Republicans better toe the TeaPublican line and say NO to everything….or we are going to run them right out of office come the next primary election! We TeaPublicans WILL take back America in 2014 and 2016….and we WILL take back any un-patriotic Republicans too!

The more people who read "Bulls, Bears and the Ballot Box" the more people will disavow the Republican party. it should be harder for them to gain control of the government now that they have been proven WRONG in the way they run it. Read it yourselves and send a copy to someone else. It's a must read for any voter, politician of captain of industry

The cliff "negotiations" show how much King Obama truly cares about the middle class. If he really cared, he would have had it settled by now. He wants taxes raised on everyone. Just think of all of that money to spend. His wish come true.

With the expectation that the payroll tax holiday will likely be the first thing to go to appease the Republicans, our average 2% raises will be wiped out by a 2% tax increase on the middle class. People at work are already talking about how they're cutting back in anticipation.
