too bad the half of the americans who graduated from government run schools and then inexorably applied their lips to the government teat are incapable of understanding much less knowing how our leaders in DC are flaunting the government run school graduates' ignorance right in their faces.
With the Redskins playing the Monday night game and the National's still not having made a deal with their 1st baseman, Adam LaRoche, there's not much to think about here in Our Nation's Capital other than that pesky fiscal cliff.

Depending on what comes up in your Google search for "What will be the effect on GDP of the fiscal cliff" you get answers ranging from a drop of about 1.4 percent (NASDAQ) up to four percent (Washington Post).

Most of the guesses fall in the 3 - 3.5 percent range.

No matter how much the economy...
