Hurrah for the Fiscal Cliff

What gets wrecked by going off the cliff? Government? I'll push it. Banking? They're at the wheel, on the gas pedal. I'll light the way. Will Americans quit working, striving, inventing, taking risks? I don't see why they would. We need to see what would happen. I just don't think this cliff is as high for all of us as some would have us believe. I think the ones who have the furthest to fall are trying to scare everyone, most of whom are already at the bottom. Let's do it.

That's why NEWT GINGRICH has been my hero...and FOR THAT REASON ALONE. He SHUT DOWN THE GOV'T...and UNFUNDED things, and said, "SHUT IT DOWN! You're not going to hold us hostage!" He FORCED Bill Clinton to the right...and Clinton has been reaping the rewards of Welfare Reform ever since...as if HE did it! That's also why Clinton said he ENJOYED working with Newt...because NEWT gave him his LEGACY! Newt has said the other day that John Boehnner should say to Obama, "We have a MANDATE too! We got the other half of the vote!" He would SHUT IT ALL DOWN...DEFUND! Boehnner has no cohonies, though...he'll cry thinking he'll lose his job, and won't be able to rub elbows with Obama on the golf course anymore!

Have you read "Atlas Shrugged"? that is the point...we (Americans) will NOT want to stop but sometimes tough love is what it takes to get someones attention! You need to prepare yourself; when those who are on the government dole stop getting their "free stuff" they will revolt. Be ready to protect your family, friends and belongings. If we don't "give" them their stuff...they will try to take it where they can find it.

You betcha Americans are going to quick striving and taking risks. many have already stated that that is their plan. Why should they when they take all the risk and put in all the reward only to have to turn around and give it to the leaches. Many people are going Gault. Good! many have even stated they will no longer give to charity because people voted for OBama so they can ask him for charity.

I did that. The black churches & Catholic Churches & Mormons (most of them) voted against Romney & for Obama...let HIM give to them. I've stopped giving to charity 100%. Nothing. I have to hold onto for my family. I no longer watch any television. Can't believe all I'm getting done in the evenings. No more movies. I'm canceling CABLE (pay channels) tomorrow. I fell FREE for the first time in a long time. We've started stocking up on food & water. And just being happy...living life to the fullest. Laughing with family & friends. Let those in NY, NJ, CA, MI, PA, FL, all help themselves. I don't even want to HEAR about them. I'm paying attn to MY family now...and friends. We're all helping out one another only.

Yes - Lets do it. I'm been preparing for this --since '08 when Obama stole his first election.

The market continues in its new role of town crier, instead of seer of all things. This is an Oracle that only understands the parameters. In this case, the parameters are clear. If we go off this fiscal cliff, we all perish. Ironically, it's not the recession that comes with the draconian triggered by inaction, but the fact that our leaders let us down, once again.

While President Obama has won the election, he could still lose the war - big time. It is my feeling that the President prefers to have a legacy that speaks to progressives for centuries....
