How can a political party that has overtly placed politics above all else in plain sight for four years for all to see, not be angling to throttle the economy to benefit themselves in the 2014 elections???
If the nation wins the republicans lose ... somehow they have made themselves adversaries of America.
What is also true is that the GOP actions will benefit their wealthy benefactors by increasing interest rates.
After all is said and done - whom do we think the debt is being repaid too? HINT; it's NOT the Chinese ... it's the same individuals who hoard trillions offshore and who finance the GOP's persistent attempts to overthrow OUR federal government.
One has to wonder about the fiscal cliff current negotiations, which could and likely will be altered in years to come based on who is in charge in Washington. Why are we arguing about a balanced approach?
Where in God's name is the vision and in-depth thinking needed to forestall the impending doom precipitated by chronic human failures?
What failures? you may ask .... since to really understand how miserably humanity is performing you must have an out of body experience and float above the planet observing the sheer stupidity with which humans manage their lives and effect all life on earth.
There's so much that is totally absurd beginning with the value attributed to symbols of wealth as opposed to food and water and natural resources.
Such symbols as money which is intrinsically worthless paper or increasingly the electronic data recorded as 0's and 1's in a bank's computer!
With the clicks on keyboards hundreds of billions of dollars change hands daily ... and a small group of humans are taking an anti out of the massive pot.
These individuals are enemies of humanity.
That pot is called economics and is dominated by fabricated supply and demand cycles. No one will admit nor acknowledge the simple truth about economics. It is a social science based on selfishness.
Nature in theory can supply all of humanity in practice if humanity were to get it's act together.
That's where peeps like Boehner fit in ... he is actually no different than most humans, short sighted and selfish .... self indulgent and self-righteous.
Everything we peeps do right or wrong is justified with one word "freedom", when in truth and reality there is NO freedom ... there is only leverage, habit, custom, conventional wisdom and words that form endless lies.
Over my life time I have seen two types of human behavior that can be attributed to each and every human being.
We are alternately givers and takers. Some humans skew more one way or the other.
And these traits are interchangeable often occurring simultaneously as contradiction.
War for example is always fought for a "good" or "worthy" or "justified" cause.
On the more contemporaneous subject we are discussing - we now ALL need to reduce the deficit and the amount of national debt.
YET all of the leaders in OUR nation including the private sector and Government are in the 2% with very few exceptions.
Why then should we be surprised by the contortions the 2% goes through to justify their actions?
How can they justify unfairness without bending and changing shape daily?
The news media acts as a filter correcting the lens of events so that the public is entertained rather than informed.
Analysis is spewed forth in such enormous amounts such as to fore go any question as to the validity of the opinions expressed.
Corporate funded news pundits attain heights of unfounded and unjustified credibility based on personality rather than the ability to impart facts impartially.
A pay check separates newscasters from their audience and the truth.
The corporate owned, sponsored and managed media has us all under control, even John Boehner.
