    It only seems that way when you're not tying to understand a point, but pretending to win by ignoring.

    Win? what do I win? That's your problem, you think this is about winning the argument, when in truth it really is about your deceptive argument, and hackery....

    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    No, I don't think it's about winning. But if it were about truth for you, you would not have answered as you did.

    Quite possible. I'll be fine.

    Re: Harry Reid: "We're going over the cliff"

    Here we are, folks!

    As the final hours of our "march towards the cliff" tick away we've got lawmakers from both parties scrambling behind the scenes to make that last second deal that will save us all from the depths of the abyss...
    ... and if anyone believes a word of that I've got a couple of bridges in New York for sale.

    We're being had. There is no cliff and even if there was does anyone really believe that there is anything magic about the date 12-31-2012? As if a deal struck, say, a week from now couldn't do the exact same thing as a deal struck today? Never in my 45 years have I felt this level of distrust in government. My skepticism that has slowly drifted to cynicism has now evolved into outright disgust. These people treat us as if we were children incapable of understanding what is going on.

    Re: Harry Reid: "We're going over the cliff"

    Republicans are going to pay a huge political price if they continue to hold the middle/working classes hostage in order to protect tax cuts for the wealthy. The overwhelming majority of Americans (near 70%) agree with President Obama on this issue and hold the GOP responsible. Are Republicans really this stupid? or are they just so tied to the super wealthy that they just cannot bring themselves to do what is right for the 99% of the rest of America?

    And in real terms exactly how much of the debt will be eliminated by increasing taxes on the 'rich'? I'm sure you can tell us. Only the uneducated believe it will have any bearing on our financial issues.

    Its a start in the right direction and helps stem what would otherwise be huge cuts to the defense department. The bottom line is....why is the gop willing to hold the middle class and working classes hostage in order to keep huge tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans? Luckily....the overwhelming majority of the American people see what is going on and get it. I don't believe that the GOP could play this any worse that they have. The must want to become a regional party for the forseeable future.
