The logic behind the Senate Republican’s vote for this deal is that they saved their constituents from a big increase in their income taxes. Except all this did was postpone the inevitable, a much larger increase shortly. Someone has to pay the debt! While the Senate see’s nothing wrong with spending money they don’t have, this bill didn’t cut any spending, so they will keep increasing the deficit and debt, to t he cheers of the lobbyist, until it finally collapses the country. Guess who will have to pay then? It wont be the moochers or elected leaders.
The beginning of a new year is often a time to look forward and look back. The way the future looks, I prefer to look back -- and depend on my advanced age to spare me from having to deal with too much of the future.

If there are any awards to be given to anyone for what they did in 2012, one of those rewards should be for prophecy, if only because prophecies that turn out to be right are so rare.

With that in mind, my choice for the prediction of the year award goes to Bret Stephens of the Wall...
