Yes! And Obama will give away the farm, again.

Sick and tired of it all, the drama, the game.

I'm with you, Geraldine. Who needs soap operas?

The title of the article just released is "Obama sees no need to stop the cuts"

btw. Uncertainity can undermine the strength of the projections used by Wall St to evaluate their investments, but it is removed by confidence in the outcome - period. It doesn't matter if the uncertainty is removed by securing an outcome favorable or unfavorable to the People, just so long as the financial or stock analyst knows which.

Furthermore, most of your financialized money is made during times of uncertainty rather than certainty. Uniform information (widespread concensus) tends to dampen opportunities for profit.

"uncertaintiy" like "energy independence" and "exporting democracy" are simply sound bites from a body of propaganda whose main use is to manipulate something out of the People.

When the domestic economy is crushing the People, Wall St can use aspects of the same economy to make money. And that speaks to a fundamental problem with Wall St controlling our Government.

Corporations outspend taxpayers in Congress...

You may be surprised to learn that we spend about $2 billion dollars a year on our dysfunctional Congress. However, it's even more surprising to learn that corporate lobbyists spend even more to buy off our federal lawmakers.

"Thom Hartmann seeks out interesting subjects from such disparate outposts of curiosity that you have to wonder whether or not he uncovered them or they selected him."
