Heading for the fiscal cliff
You'll hear a lot about the fiscal cliff in the news from Washington and Wall Street through at least the end of the year. Here's what it is.

to live and die for the CONSTITUTION!
Do I need to say any more !
I forgot to copy my previous post - it never downloaded - guess it was too truthful/common-sense. Oh well I did copy my 2nd msg I tried to post and here it is:
Know how the gov't works? We thought we knew, I am not a political science major, don't want to try
to do what we pay them to do/know. Who signs contracts/bills/legislation they don't read or understand
(they are the ones with the degrees right/so-called intelligence right?) Speaking of AmTrak -
I heard on Talk Radio millions was wasted on some snack that wasn't selling on the train for years?
Who let that slip thru the cracks? Talk about auditing ! Who's grand idea was it to give
millions/billions to other countries (while the kings/queens sit on gold toilet seats)
and their own people are suffering under thier regime/government. Long ago we started this mess of
getting into other countries business (for so-called diplomatic reasons, because we wanted their
resources), now of course we are paying a high price for the intellectuals ideas/charts/forecasts
etc. Common Sense is dead - it's all about the smooze, double talk/rhetoric, political correctness,
not about plain speak, and repealing all of the unncessary/destructive monetary contracts to give
$ for stupid stuff (maybe they can't cancel the contracts because of the expiration date....there are
cookies on my computer from websites I visit that expire in 2047 !) The Govt was supposed to use the
tax $ for improving the nation/infrastructure, defending the country and the Constitution - oh well,
I guess Public TV, sewers, roads/bridges, schools, unbiased access to healthcare (remember the
Doctors who wanted to help people even though they were paid with chickens/produce and wasn't concerned
with being monetarily rich or sued for malpractice?) all this is a thing of the past, not politically
correct, or the social things to do anymore.
This is all so, so funny.
MSNBC: So now you decide to tell the truth as it was and is? Really? Barrack cannot, himself, believe that he was re-elected.
Singapore or Hong Kong? I'm trying to decide which duty free port I'll be moving to. I love them both, but soon......
Someone once said, "The problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other people's money." Truer words were never spoken.
If I was President I would give them a plan, and any GOP idiot that tried to block it. I would call them
out by name, to the people of the United States. And let the people VOTE on them.

We are going off the fiscal cliff because we already went off the moral cliff. Study history. One is related to the other.
If Medicare cut on physician not corrected No physician will be able to see patient in there office.as
Now there is only 10 % margin in medicare.It is going to be very difficult to find physician who will be willinng to go bankrupt.
with obama back in office and his BIG government idea's, this is only going to get worse. Government doesn’t help people, people help people.
We need to reduce the size of government and put the responsibility to help others, back on to the people.
