    We are ignoring one important option. Make the Senate floor a designated gun free zone



    And wait.

    As for the hyperbolic nonsense about Pol Pot, odd that you equation knowledge with something evil. You'll find most leaders of all movements were educated.
    Just so everyone is crystal clear, you believe that Pol Pot was an "educated leader"....Wow.

    Agreed Boo. Another stop gap would be worse than the cliff IMO. The cliff will hurt no doubt. My taxes are going to go up $200 a month, the child tax credit will be cut by $500 for me, and my profession is THE focus of all of the cuts. However, I will take all of that over a stop gap. A stop gap just leads to more suffering later ie when I'm old, can't rebound, and my kids are just going into the wonderful world of having a family and career.

    Republicans are so cretinous they have lost and don't know it. Taxes on the rich are going up. There's no way these shills can stop it.

    If we go over the cliff, the next day the Senate proposes a tax cut for working families and dares the tea party House to shoot down a tax cut. The GOP is so nihilistic they probably will, and that will mean in the next election, armageddon for the tea party

    Sadly HoJ probably has at least this sort of scenario right...Oh, and shouldn't the country be so proud of the hate filled mind that would pull this sort of political slime off? Progressives/Liberals my aren't they just so bipartisan, and full of honest brokership? I swear, I have never seen such projection clinically speaking, or so much hypocrisy in my entire life....All progressive/liberals are more times than not are angry, hypocritical, liars.

    Oh, and don't bother replying, trying to have a civil conversation with some progressives is a real exercise in beating ones head into a brick wall of dishonesty.

    No, nothing the president does is in anyway like a business. No state product or widget, no profit motive, nothing that mirrors a business. I tried to make this clear to you during the election. Even economic policies are very different than running an actual business.

    An no Pol Pot was not an educational leader. You need to read that again. Being educated is not being an educational leader. You're misreading again.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.
