Goodbye 2012 - Don't let the door hit ya...

where the good Lord split ya.

2012 wasn't a terrible year, but it was another rut year. Here's to the hope that 2013 will be better, but by the looks of things it isn't going to be better for the country. Oh, it might be better for some individuals, but as a collective it looks like it will be another rut year... an insane year. Doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result.

Once again the agenda is being driven by self interests and the brain dead discussion about the Fiscal Cliff. Like I have told you, there will be a deal made and you are going to be worse off because of it. We commoners will pay and the Richie Rich's will continue paying their lawyers and accountants to duck and dodge their responsibilities.

Like I told a person the other day, the Republican's constantly p*** and moan about unions and then they turn around and run their party like a union. Everything is based on seniority and new thoughts and ideas are pushed to the background and the younger people are told to wait their turn as the Bitter Old Men drive us nowhere.

The big question leaving 2012. You took care of your Wall Street buddies and helped them send jobs overseas. You imposed a costly military industrial and security apparatus over us that is stifling the country's ability to grow from a cost/expense aspect. For every job that has been created more have been destroyed and now you can't paper it over any more. Now come the spending cuts and tax increases. Do you think that people are going to willingly crawl in the corner and starve to death when the ultimate result goes down?

Happy New Year! I like the post, a lot! You're one of the few Republicans I know that will actually tell the truth and how it really is. Not that Democrats are better, but at least demonstrating level headedness and common sense are virtues rarely witnessed today in politics.

Others are aware of all of this, but fall in line due to group think and peer pressure. They think it's better to keep their mouths when they disagree or to parrot when they don't know. They will only complain as they go over the cliff or if they survive the splatter once they hit the bottom. I am trying to get people to understand that there is no averting the cliff. We are in the process of the fall. We have seen a Dead Cat Bounce from the stimulus and money spending and the gubment wants to call it a recovery. We face systemic issues and this is NOT a business cycle issue. You cannot solve these economic and social problems from inside the box. The Oldsters will never accept that. It is understandable that they don't, but this denial and ignorance is impeding the processes necessary to recover.
