If you want people to look at your thread and then respond to it, don't entitle it, "No title". Spice it up with something like, "Is Obama gay?.
As for the fiscal cliff, this is a man made crisis, so expect only one thing to happen. In the immortal words of Herbert Hoover, "Every collectivist revolution rides on the Trojan horse of "emergency". It was the tactic of Hitler, and Mussolini. In the collectivist sweep over a dozen minor countries of Europe, it was the cry of men striving to get on horseback. And "emergency" became the justification of the subsequent steps. This technique of creating emergency is the greatest achievement that demagoguery attains."
Make no mistake, all you hear from either side is demagoguery. In the end, they will create an emergency in order to effect change that we would otherwise find painful, causing us to throw them out of office. I just can't wait to see what it is.
