And The Winner Is...

Tyler Durden's picture


They came; they spoke; they voted...

  • Obama says will not have another debate with Congress over debt ceiling
  • Republicans: Yea 85 - 151 Nay
  • Democrats: Yea 172 - 16 Nay

'Cliff'-Off (for now)...'Debt-Ceiling'-on. Time to start buying March vol steepeners? But the bottom line is simple: the Bush tax cuts are dead. Long live the Obama tax cuts.

Perhaps a message must be sent to the legislators who voted yes for this and the NDAA with US citizens spying authorized.

The Soapbox didn't work, the Ballot box didn't work, gee, what's left?

I wonder what the most efficient way is? lol  Bwaaaaahahahahahaa


Edit: Pretty sure that crack just got me on a list! lol That's OK, I didn't like any of the guns I bought the day of the sandy hook shootins so I sold them for a modest profit. I guess I don't like those kinds of guns. Bwwaahahahahah

Somehow the 2% Social Security tax increase/reversion is viewed as an economic stimulant?

I wonder how long it will take the average middle class worker to notice their withholding has increased?

"Somehow the 2% Social Security tax increase/reversion is viewed as an economic stimulant?"

I have no idea how.  I gave up paying into the system in May.  I recommend everyone try it.  I neither give nor take.  I just watch it crumble under it's own weight and bet against it.

Good times

I thought Romney was an Obammy shill from the first time the dems said they wanted him to win. His son Tigg confirmed that. Rethugs threw the election and the country to the Marxists.

I doubt we'll see another election. Seriously.

I hope I'm wrong but I doubt it.

The budget ceiling debate will never happen. Obama will just unilaterally raise the ceiling.  And as we can see, congress doesn't have the balls to call him on it.

Bright Side:  I'm excited to see the sheeple's reaction when they have a nice chunk taken out of their paycheck.  I want to hear "I thought onlu the rich were getting their taxes raised!".  My response will be "They lied to you.  They all lie.  And there are many many more tax hikes coming your way".
