Let me fill you in on what is really happening.
The fucktarded republicans don’t like the dicktarded democrats. They hate Obama-phones and welfare cheese. They want the government to stop spending money on ‘stuff’ and are willing to literally blow up the economy to accomplish their goals, like terrorists–ironically.
These idiots on the right signed some sort of document named after this retard, Grover-Norquist, which says (and I am paraphrasing here) “no real american will ever raise taxes, else your dicks will get cut off.”
So the Tea Party plan is to go over the cliff, kick Boehner down a flight of stairs, and eat lots of ham and shoot gatling guns in their backyards for Xmas.
Ah, but it gets better.
These same jackasses will come back to work, after the new year, and vote for “tax cuts”, in order to undo some of the fiscal cliff shit. In other words, this is purely cosmetic. During the next election the GOP will be able to say to their gun toting constituents “see those communists made us go over the cliff, but we cut your taxes in 2013.”
The end result is Christmas has been stolen.
As a nation, we’re throwing ourselves into lit fireplaces, wrapped in baize–all thanks and praise to our elected millionaires in congress who partake in high stakes parlour games at the expense of 300 million plebs.
