You nailed it, that is why the US is a cesspool and will continue the downward spiral....as a non American(thank God) I am watching the demise of America into a sewer of corruption. Your founders would be very proud of what your politicians have accomplished. 1. dumbed down the citizens so far that 90% couldn't find where they live on a map. 2. hundreds of TRILLIONS IN DEBT. 3. every state, city, and Fed. govments ALL BANKRUPT. 4. Allow unelected bankers control the purse strings. 5. Perhaps the worst is turning a vibrant REPUBLIC into a disfunctional cronyism, FACIST DEMOCRACY......YEP your founders would be very proud.

@ watson199 -
Very astute - and unfortunately accurate - of you.
However, where are you from? Where do you now smugly reside, Mr. "Non American"?
Perhaps in a Shangrila we are unaware of. You may actually have some working ideas on how to turn this huge ship around. I'll wait. And I'll treat your ideas with respect...depending.

The man is right Larry, and it only shows OUR smugness when we get ticked off that another tells it like it is. He is 100% correct and frankly I am happy for him that he need not witness the pathetic deterioration of his own homeland (seeing ours is more than enough to disturb any rational individual).

The Republic is safe.

John Boehner’s no national dictator, we now know, set to ruin the economy by forcing it off the fiscal cliff in the same way that Rep. Paul Ryan did to that poor old lady in a wheel chair on TV.

No, Boehner’s got other ways to screw up the economy, ones that have the happy effect- for him- of keeping the government vortex flowing and sucking in all the money it can.  

The modest, emotional, cigarette-smoking Speaker of the House, you see, uses force only against conservatives who wish to stop the vortex, not against...
