Graham changes mind: ‘I think
we’re going over the cliff’

Washington Post, by Aaron Blake

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 12/30/2012 11:47:42 PM

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), who earlier Sunday said there was an “exceedingly good” chance of getting at least a small fiscal cliff deal done, has apparently changed his mind. Graham is now predicting that cliff will not be averted. “I’m incredibly disappointed we cannot seem to find common ground,” Graham said on his official Twitter feed. “I think we’re going over the cliff.”

"WE" Kemosabe? I´m betting all the kings´ men and all the kings´ horses will land softly enough. In fact there was some extra feathering going on just this week as King Obie passed around some sorely needed raises to his own. But hey, fellas, thanks for lookin´ out for us little people. We know you´ve had our best in mind.

I heard Lindsey around noon and was simply aghast at his ignorance. Apparently someone capable of thought explained it to him. As a nation we are broke. We need to quit spending. We can´t afford to pay people not to work for 2 years. That 30 billion is two thirds of the tax increases on the rich. The 60 billion Sandy aid is one and a half years of taxes on the rich.

Four clueless posts here. Graham has been pretty strong. It probably did look as though the President would pull it off. Haven´t we all worried that he would? If Lindsey thinks he was wrong, so what does that prove? I think we should go over the cliff rather than let the President use the money for new spending, which is what the Republicans are trying to prevent. Get yourselves on the right side and stop harrassing our own people.

These people are simply creating drama so whatever crummy deal is reached,people will breath a sigh of relief.

Taxing people´s estates is something I´ll never get,they already paid taxes on the accumulated tax and this kills farmers.A farmer´s land could be worth millions on paper but they´re otherwise cash poor.Having to sell their land to cover a dead relative is ludicrous. You can bet Ted Kennedy didn´t pay a dime in estate taxes.

Care to explain #9 how GWB got Graham elected? I don´t agree with Lindsey about 30% of the time but he isn´t stupid and he will be reelected should he choose to run. No one who is any good will run against him, he has a lot of money, and his seniority becomes more valuable by the day.

This government reflects the state of the nation quite well... Two quite different and quite irreconcilable approaches to our current fiscal predicament. At the head of this government is the unLeader, above it all, oblivious to his own incompetence, and haughtily lecturing anyone foolish enough to listen and believe he has the nation´s best interest in mind.

This whole argument is a farce. We are going over the cliff sooner or later. That is a certainy. This tax hike wasn´t going to stop it. Obama already had the money spent. I think the generation that caused this mess ought to be the one to pay for it.

L.Com is not an ordinary website and doesn´t deserve to be peppered with name-calling and ad hominem attacks on each other. It lowers us to the level of liberals. We´re better than that, so can we please mature the tenor of this discussion just a tad and have a serious discussion?

Lindsey Graham has his opinion as do many other Senators. He´s got no more inside information than most. I say let´s go over the cliff because even though we haven´t yet done so, we already being blamed for it. So let the chips fall where they may.

#5, you´re right and that is really the crux of the matter. At their very foundations, the GOP and the Democrat Party have nothing in common. Both parties have drifted away from any hope of compromise because one Party wants socialism and the other wants free-market capitalism. How do you find common ground between those two worldviews, especially when Democrats want to cut the military, confiscate guns (ultimately), raise everyone´s taxes and establish a dictatorship?

The GOP would be wise to refuse to compromise and let Obama´s disastrous last four years play out into the next four years. Eventually, without GOP fingerprints, the public will realize how wrong they were to put their faith in this shallow little man. Twice.

But there IS common ground! It´s the one zooming up toward us as we drift oh-so-numbly, and upon which we´ll all go SPLAT in a few hours.

Happy New Year! And enjoy floating.

(Guess I´ll be ´grocery shopping´ at the year´s supply of emergency food I bought knowing Obama would do this to us sooner or later. But hey - I´ll probably lose weight, and get healthier! Goal is the 60+ grandma-warrior irregulars.)

Not everyone in this generation caused this mess. Power hungry greed is not inherent in any one generation. We are at this crisis because it has been building for decades driven by people who think they know better than everyone else and want ultimate control of people´s lives. We have seen it rise to power and fail in Europe and now it is here on our doorstep. It did not end well for those who would not stop it and it will not end well here. Much more than money is on the line. Our very freedom is at stake and Americans at any age should recognize that.

The fact that there is no common ground in this crisis is a good thing. Obama and his greedy horde spent us into oblivion and the democrats own the disaster. The fiscal cliff illusion is simply an attempt to attach blame to the republicans. If they deserve any blame it´s because they did not resist the wasteful and shameful vote buying that obama wasted our entire treasury on.

Concerning the present generation paying for its own excesses, that goes against the entire SOP of the democrats. If the entitled people had to pay for what they got, they wouldn´t get it and democrats would not get elected. Far better to let the unknown future generation clean up the mess.

Those throwing stones at Senator Graham are greatly appreciated by Obama’s team. They send their regards and thanks. Good work.

The cliff is not there because we have failed to give Obama enough taxes; it’s there because he (and GWB) spent too much. The government beast must go on a diet.

Let´s go off the cliff, then. The first victims will be the 2.1 million unemployed "99ers" who take Obama´s long-term unemployment money (instead of working). Their Obama checks will get cut off first. Let them go run and cry and scream to their liberal paymasters in the Senate (Reid, Patty Murray, Boxer, and all those new liberal senators from Indiana, North Dakota and every other "conservative" red state that showed idiocy in the last election). Let them howl and squeal. The liberal fasco-wienies will be back to bargain.

Like others here, let´s all stop the infighting and concentrate on the topic at hand.

When you think about all of the repercussions, you will come to understand that no matter what the Republicans do or what happens, they, the Pubbies, are going to be blamed for it. I can hear Obozo and the MSM saying now, that if they were just given what they wanted, everything would be just fine. The Dims will never take responsibility for anything. Remember, the Dims of today are NOT the Dims of yesteryear. Back then, some of them actually had the nation´s needs at heart. Today, they are no more than socialists/Marxists that what one party rule (not govern) and have their man/woman elected as president for life, if they ever hold elections.

Irony is, the Dems may have overreached and miscalculated. We´ve all assumed (you know what that word means) that the cliff will play to NerØbama´s benefit. That, IMO, is a head fake. It´s only to his benefit to drive a wedge between conservatives. 2014 and the debt ceiling are his real targets.

Pain on everyone at this point will hurt the Dems more than the Pubs. Conservatives plan ahead, and will survive the "hit". Obama´s drones are the ones who will be hurt the most. Plus, as Trump is pointing out, the Pubs have the leverage once we go over. They will have already taken NerØbama´s best shot, and will still be standing to get some real spending cuts - now - if there is to be any increase in the debt ceiling. Otherwise, the debt ceiling will take care of things by itself. Worried about the 2014 election? That´s a political eternity away.

I watched Graham in his "come together moment" with Feinstein on Fox Sunday. It gave me a sinking feeling to hear that he thought that there was deal coming. As Lindsay said, "Hats off to the president. He won." And, he reminded us that he was once one of a Gang of 14 that hijacked the Senate when Republicans had finally gained control. I guess he wished he could go back to those heady days when the McCain party would just step in and decide for us.

These clowns that want to make a deal deserve neither our respect or support. In today´s vernacular, "they all suck". They have betrayed the American people in order to feather their own nest, and they don´t do math.

There was a post a couple of days ago that put it all into perspective: Knock 8 zeros off, and you will see that we "make" (tax revenue) $22,000 a year, spend $38,000, and have a credit card debt of $160,000. Now, these geniuses (the dems and "he won republicans") are going to swoop in and save the day by taxing the rich who make over $250k a year. In the scenario above, that´ll raise 8 days of funding, or about $240 bucks. They "promise" that they are going to "cut" another 1 trillion in the next 10 years, or about $1,000 per year when you knock the zeroes off. Feel better now?

Just take us over the rhetorical "cliff", and get it over with. The sooner the inevitable misery sets in, the better off we´ll be.

The juvenile name calling by the right against our side
is tiresome.
People like Limbaugh and Levin promote and encourage this type of unhelpful and childish behavior.
It only helps the Democrats.
The left rarely devours their own like the right consistently does.
Graham has an odd way of speaking-his phraseology is sometimes hard to understand
and he often seems to contradict himself in the same sentence.
It´s like some type of verbal dyslexia.
I saw Graham on FOX yesterday and his statement about Obama seemed more like a combatant acknowledging the success of an opponent.
Obama won.
Senate Democrats have increased their number by 2 for the next session to 55 ( 53 Dems, plus 2 Indys who side with Dems ) to 45 Republicans.
Republicans in the House lost 8 seats for the next session.
I pity Boehner and McConnell , they are trying to accomplish the unattainable.
Trying to find common ground ( which is impossible )
with Reid and Pelosi
and Obama while ducking rotten tomatoes and brickbats from the right.
Their strategic options are very limited and unlike, Obama ,
Reid and Pelosi, they are trying
to do the best they can for Americans.

By avoiding an interrogation by him, Hillary is probably saying, "lucky, lucky,lucky subdural hematoma for me". Luckier than overlooking billable hour receipts "right there all along" on a table in a room you searched high and low for and couldn´t find.

#30´s example puts it into perspective...so, now, where is the crisis? That taxes will rise? No, it´s that spending will largely remain as it is. No one in Congress, not Republican or Democrat, wants to do that in any meaningful way. As for "defense" being cut...more scare rubbish. The cut won´t even break the skin over the fat there if it´s applied with any sense. As far as most of the rest of the sequestered cuts, who´ll miss it? Of course, they´ll say the parks will be closed, and the monuments. We´ll be left without law enforcement protection, too. I´m sorry, but I´m not buying the notion of any crisis...spilled beer in a brewery. The next Congress can get real about this, starting with electing Paul Ryan as Speaker.

How could anyone not see through the smirking arrogance and the put=downs? When is SOMEBODY in the Republican party going to start trading jabs with him and naming names? This senatorial respect and language is totally not working.

I don´t want to hear anything about this so-called cliff. The "Gang" voted for it. Since when do FIVE people get to tell all of us what to do? Don´t we have representatives that should have voices? This is crazy!

Long-term unemployed struggle
to find — and keep — jobs
Washington Post, by Ylan Q. Mui    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/18/2014 10:37:47 PM     Post Reply
For the long-term unemployed, finding a job is hard — but keeping one may be even harder. New research tracking people who have been out of work for six months or longer found that 23 percent of them landed a job within a few months of the study. But a year later, more than a third of that group was unemployed again or out of the labor force altogether. The findings are the latest in a bleak but growing body of literature suggesting long-term unemployment has become a trap that is difficult to escape. Economists say that means the long-term unemployed could become a permanent underclass, left behind by the nation’s broader

The Social Security Administration announced Monday that it will immediately cease efforts to collect on taxpayers’ debts to the government that are more than 10 years old. The action comes after The Washington Post reported that the government was seizing state and federal tax refunds that were on their way to about 400,000 Americans who had relatives who owed money to Social Security. In many cases, the people whose refunds were intercepted had never heard of any debt, and the debts dated as far back as the middle of the past century. “I have directed an immediate halt to further

Democrats have had a recurring problem in special elections this year: Their voters aren’t turning out. If a weak economy and continued Obamacare problems persist, the November elections could be a disaster for Democrats. Last week, Democrats lost two special elections they weren’t planning to. Arlington, Va., is a classic wealthy ObamaTown, filled with government workers and limousine liberals. Mitt Romney won only 29 percent of the vote in 2012. But last Tuesday, Democrats lost their first election for the five-member Arlington County Board in 15 years when John Vihstadt, a Republican running as an independent, won a vacancy on

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said little as federal agents seized and then released cattle last week from the Bundy ranch, but there is little doubt that the highly charged episode was threatening to become a political headache for the Nevada Democrat. The Bureau of Land Management is headed by former longtime Reid aide Neil Kornze, who was confirmed by the Senate as BLM director on Tuesday, just as federal authorities descended on the cattle ranch outside Mesquite, Nev. Mr. Kornze issued a statement Saturday saying that the bureau would return the cattle and withdraw its agents from the ranch

On the defensive about their prospects in the midterm elections this fall, congressional Democrats have spent all of April savaging the Republican budget proposal, decrying the Koch brothers and championing a series of bills meant to ingratiate themselves to struggling middle-class voters. In promoting legislation that would extend unemployment benefits, increase the minimum wage and promote equal pay for women, the Democrats have declared themselves the party that will ensure a “fair shot” for all. Republicans, they insist, are the party of special interests. It has been a classic Washington messaging campaign for these partisan

On a trip to Moscow early in her tenure as secretary of state, Hillary Rodham Clinton played the role of international saleswoman, pressing Russian government officials to sign a multibillion-dollar deal to buy dozens of aircraft from Boeing. A month later, Clinton was in China, where she jubilantly announced that the aerospace giant would be writing a generous check to help resuscitate floundering U.S. efforts to host a pavilion at the upcoming World’s Fair. Boeing, she said, “has just agreed to double its contribution to $2 million.” Clinton did not point out that, to secure the donation, the State Department

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.
