    Do you think this is the Old West and you will be in the OK Corral? Metaphorically speaking ...there is more than one way to skin a cat ... or slowly poison the lord of the manor through his own caviar would be another way to put it.

    You really don't get it do you? Or maybe you don't want to get it?

    I DO NOT WANT VIOLENCE. I was hoping the battle between fascist corporatism and the rest of the people could be avoided and Obama would be the one to do that. But the events today tell me that we have just taken another step towards an inevitable showdown that could be very messy for everyone.

    And people today - people like you Turtle - people who wallow in their own wealth and their own privilege and who attempt to have the rest of us serve you in a condition little better than serfdom, only make this more possible through their toadies in the Republican party and through the spread of the disease of libertarian thought and ideology.

    Understand me - I hope it never comes to that because it will be a terrible thing to witness. It makes me sad to admit that we have taken a step closer to this today.

    The joke is on the country? How do you figure? The unemployed got a 13 month extention and no one got a tax hike. Merry christmas everybody! Go Obama! LOL

    How is this a sad day for America? I would think that any given Libbo would be elated to find out that taxes on samll businesses, might not go up.

    I think the problem that most Liberals have, is that they really believe that everybody hates rich folks as much as they do.

    Those 2 take care of those 98. You keep forgetting that. There'd be no free lunches without them. Why the hatred? Jealous?

    I don't really mind the tax cut extensions, so much as I mind the fact that Obama didn't negotiate anything substantial from the Republicans in exchange. He basically just rolled over and gave them what they wanted. He should have gotten a lot more than just an unemployment extension in exchange...like maybe some substantial economic stimulus.

    Why would he ask for something that knows isn't going to work?

    He already looks like a dumbass, because of his past stimuli. I think he's too smart to make himself look like an even bigger dumbass, by flushing more tax dollars down the toilet.

    I'm sure he feels lucky that he got the unemployment extension and rightfully so.
