That ol’ “Fiscal Cliff” is progressively looming ... or rather dooming. Both sides are increasingly anxious and the closer we get to the edge, the greater is the anxiety.
It’s like a bladder condition: the closer one gets to the source of resolution, the less likely it seems that it will be reached in time. I believe it will not be; that is, if our clueless Republican freshmen installed into the House of Representatives after the 2010 election disaster have their way and force us over.
The last time they managed to lower our credit rating. Perhaps this time they will manage to more completely destroy our country’s credibility ... of course, not coincidentally, during the presidency of Barack Hussein Obama. And it may very well work. Initially it will be obvious that the fault was that of our horse-blindered right-wing Congress, but history books will have it occurring during our president’s tenure, and after all is said and done, that is the goal. And that’s from those “values” exclaimers.
One would think that first and foremost, America’s standing in the world would be of the greatest importance to any patriotic citizen, but clear thinking has not been on the front burner of that group. Nor has it been on the frontal lobe on the “things to do” brain of our Congress. That gray matter seems to have been replaced with Earl Grey, the “Tea,” that is.
