It would appear that TownHall has deleted posts and responses by Illuminati ... good for you ... well done ... I applaud your decision.

Oh oh ... he's back. Best not to respond ... that's all he's looking for.

Ever had the experience of trying to participate in a conversation with a room full of adults while a child is having a tantrum and demanding attention?

Very good analogy of what Illuminati (the child) adds to the conversation.

Amid all the political and media hoopla about the "fiscal cliff" crisis, there are a few facts that are worth noting.

First of all, despite all the melodrama about raising taxes on "the rich," even if that is done it will scarcely make a dent in the government's financial problems. Raising the tax rates on everybody in the top two percent will not get enough additional tax revenue to run the government for ten days.

And what will the government do to pay for the other 355 days in the year?

All the political angst and moral melodrama about getting "the rich" to pay...
