Ironic how leftists can prognosticate with such certainty the climate for the entire planet according to some liberal formula based on conflicting data. However, despite all the facts, formulas and mountains of evidence and results, economic policy remains in the 'fog of war' for them.

But they are as sure that increased government control of the economy will bring about prosperity as they are that mankind is destroying the planet with his cars and washing machines.

Liberals: Frequently wrong, but never in doubt.

Why I read TH comments. Offendednation could never be a leftist, as he or she can, actually, think, and verbalize the insights. Thanks.

Common sense seems to be rampant here...at least until Allison awakens.

"she that should not be named."

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...
