I wish we could go back to the pre ww11 days where values were based upon self reliance and hard work and people lived with the philosophy of BUY IT NEW....USE IT OUT..... MAKE IT DO... DO WITHOUT. ..WHERE PEOPLE KNEW THEY HAD TO BECOME EDUCATED TO EARN MORE AND GAVE BASIC SUPPORT TO PEOPLE IN NEED ON A TEMPORARY BASIS. LOOKING BACK IT WAS A HAPPY TIME JUST GOING TO THE MOVIES.
I read that Senator Mitch McConnell burst into laughter upon hearing Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner lay out President Obama's "Fiscal Cliff" plan. Here's the rub:

> $1.6 trillion in revenue
> $50.0 billion stimulus
> $400.0 billion in Medicare cuts

Unlike Susan Rice, who was sent in to fall on the administration's sword during the Benghazi cover up, Geithner isn't looking for his next government job. It makes him the perfect foil. He can actually go in with a straight face with a proposal so absurd that an old reserved guy like McConnell doubles over in hysterical disbelief. Some say this is how you begin...
