oh yeah right wing propaganda, which is what? oh yeah less than 5% of the media in this country. Oh yeah its the fault of trickle down or supply side economics, the basics of which have been tried only 3 times in the entire past century! and worked each time by the way. Of course! Eureaka! it MUST be the fault of 5% of the media, and less than 5% of the policies in the past hundred years. its so clear now its the "incorrect statements" about states rights, not the increase and expansion of the federal governments powers actually enacted by the left and left leaning rightys. you need to get your own brain sheeple!

Thanksgiving is tomorrow, but fiscal cliff discussion between Republicans and Democrats has already started and will continue after the Holiday weekend. As you can imagine things aren't going so well, which means we are more likely to see some kind of deal not in the next couple weeks, but just before or on Christmas.

The opening round of negotiations this week between White House and senior GOP congressional staffers left both sides pessimistic about their ability to reach a quick deal on averting the fiscal cliff, according to sources familiar with the talks.
