The cool people on college campuses in the 60's carried Mao’s red book which taught people’s liberation. The people in the U.S. meant blacks, women, gays, atheist, immigrants, and those not rich. On the other side were people who believed in Americans as one and in traditional values. The people’s movement became an army and now they have won. The eery sad feeling that traditional Americas feel is that of a people conquered by a foreign power, and now have their lives and wealth controlled, and are being forced to do things that are not their choices and in which they don’t believe. But even Napoleon’s grip failed. And the conquered Anglo Saxons of Robin Hood’s day eventually forced the Normans to sign the Magna Carta.
When the working poor see their paychecks shrink because of the payroll tax increase, they should be reminded that the President said that Americans are 3% of the worlds population but consume 24% of it..s resources and implied that we must get in line with the rest of the world. To do this, every American's standard of living must go down 800% and not just that of the wealthy. This is what his supporters voted for and it is now on the way.

The Republicans should congratulate the Democrats on their great victory. That is, at midnight on New Year's Eve, the Democrats get everything they have so long wanted, a return to the Clinton tax rates, and cuts in military spending. Instead of taking the blame for going off the cliff and acting like they are responsible, the Republicans should just congratulate the Democrats on finally achieving their goals, and then let the Democrats take responsibility for everything that occurs after. If the Republicans had even minimal marketing skills they could turn this around to their favor.

With both houses of Congress, Bush could have given us a new and fair tax system, or at least permanent tax cuts. Instead he settled on a temporary cut that lasted only as long as his term, reflecting his and his father's disdain for tax cuts. But not wanting to loose like his dad, he enacted a phony tax cut. Sadly, this cliff really is Bush's fault. The Bushes single handedly gave us Clinton and Obama, making them the worst presidents in U.S. history.
Deranged lunatics look for the helpless, unaware, and unarmed to attack. It is significant that in almost all of the recent attacks, the villain either kills himself or gives up peacefully once armed lawmen show up. In too many cases the killers should have been in a mental hospital. But in weird logic, instead of changing the law to make it easier to put these people in mental hospitals, we want to change the law to create more unarmed and helpless victims. Finally in a popular video game players get points for going in and shooting up a school. If looking at picture of kids is illegal as child porn, then this should be too as it is worse.

Gun control? The real issue in the control of those with severe mental health issues. There was a time when those with these kinds of disorders were hospitalized, often long term. However the current belief is that this can be controlled with a pill. Good if the person takes the pill, But many do not, and many others never get seen or treated,. Yet often family and law enforcement know who has real problems and needs hospitalization. And while some parents are in denial until its too late, earlier intervention and hospitalization may help prevent a few of these tragedies.
