What are you on about? They are exceedingly efficient at releasing press releases, which moves the markets in the short term - thereby fixing the problem, once and for all.

I recommend 3" buck-and-ball with that Saiga 12.  Mine loves the heavy stuff.

They are going to eliminate the AMT which brings in 1.7T and that will save 1.5T. Somebody help me here.

No thanks, cold turkey is the only way to beat our spending addiction.   Continuing forward with anything that remotely resembles current federal spending is unbalanced.

Which has less significance, an unnecessary post or a commentary on an unnecessary post?  ;-)

(...or a reposte to a commentary on an unnecessary post?...)

Gold is selling off because the Forces of Darkness were unable to raid it during Comex hours. Copper, crude, grains too strong to be overcome. Instead, the assholes wait until after the Comex closes and everyone goes home. Then they raid. Pussy shit.

Yep, 1600 and 40 held all day and into the close. This is all about what Sinclair calls MOPE (management of perception economics).   Now the word will be stocks up strong and gold down on the great budget/debt ceiling compromise.    Ass-clown festival (for a day or two, if that).

Some of the shit going on at the COMEX is just outrageous.

And yet the Chinese gov't, by allowing their citizens to freely buy gold and silver now in banks, looks far better than what is happening with these fucktards running the Clown Show in Wash DC.

I hear ya, Bay. What a completely upside-down world we live in.

The only ones we look to trust now are the ChiComs! It's like living in a parallel universe.

But Turd, you're old enough to know that you can almost always trust a commie. I mean they are honest about who and what they are. That's why the whole cold war thing was so successful for so long.  I trust a good old commie over everyone, except about 8, of those useless pieces of shit in DC.

After 14 weeks of back and forth a compromise was reached where e will be legally changed to 2.5 to prevent debt from compounding as fast.  Thank god because if Obama had his way it would be 2.0 and Mitch Daniels only wanted it truncated to 2.7.  Democracy works!

(2) provide aminimum benefit equal to 125% of the poverty line for five years.

What's this?  According to HHS, the federal income limit for "povery" is $10,890 for a household of one:

Of couse, 125% would be $13,612. per year. 

I don't know the annual benefit distribution for SS recipients, but something tells me it is weighted very heavily in the "under $13,612." category.

This will represent a "raise" for a hell of a lot of people, me thinks.  They better party hearty for those five years . . . they'll be dropping like flies after that. 

Wonder what AARP will have to say.

Reduce but not eliminate "Tax Expenditures" like the mortgage deduction and, sadly, health care expenses!?! I didn't know that deducting health expenses over 2.5% of AGI was creating such a drain while Obama Care is on the horizon and a HCSA will still be Ok.

On the other hand I'm all for the $30b cut of Homeland Security but I'll believe all of it when I see it.  This whole thing reads like we're kicking a hornets nest down the road.

Meanwhile the Debt and default tsunami works its merry way from Europe.

Raising the debt ceiling? Solutions? Hmm, NFPs on Friday at 18k, Fukushima still there, Europe problems still there. And the TWADDLE is supposed to solve the US's problems?
