I am so looking forward to saying "I told you so", as I watch this brake less car heading for the cliff at record speed. The crash is going to be unbearable to witness, and those who demanded the nanny state are going to be crushed when the check stops, but it's time for another historical lesson about spending more than you have. The cookie jar is now empty, and each will have to find a way to fill their own jar if they want more cookies.

Yup. And those dependent on Big Daddy Government will be the first to suffer when the economy tanks. That's what happens when you can't fend for yourself. I can't seem to muster up a lot of sympathy, given that this crowd is still gloating over Obama's win and pushing the whole class warfare BS. We'll see who laughs last...

"The cookie jar is now empty." Really? Then I guess all that deficit spending since about 1929, has nothing to do with this. This country has been financially bankrupt since FDR, and it was only the good name and faith of the US, that allowed us to continue running things as if it was all good. That good name and faith have been used up. Geitner has been monetizing the debt since about the end of 2009, credit ratings have been downgraded, etc., etc. And now, with a majority of the country on the sucking on the federal teat, at least to some extent, this country has lost its way, socially, ethically, and most importantly; morally.

Stalin was right. He was never going to have to invade the US to destroy it, he was only going to have to wait things out because the citizenry of the US would destroy it for him.

America is pretty much dead now, with 12 years (going on 16) of a communist president out of the last 20 years.

It’s been a year and half since the GOP and Democrats hammered out an agreement that raised the debt ceiling and put us on the lip of a fiscal cliff, threatening mutually assured destruction if a budget deal wasn’t worked out before January 2013.

It made sense for all sides at the time. 

The GOP figured there was a good shot that Obama wasn’t going to be reelected. The Democrats figured there was a good chance shot Obama wasn’t going to be reelected. And Obama was content to do what he did best: run a campaign on TV, eat...
