from the office of NV State Senator Don Gustavson:







The biggest buzz word back in DC was "fiscal cliff." It sounds perilous, but it's a media-made word for a congressional-caused problem and without serious spending reforms the only thing likely to go over the cliff is another empty congressional can that gets kicked. The country is not falling over a cliff, it's drowning in a sea of debt and I am seeing a lack of real courage among certain leaders to willingly address the actual waterboarding that's afflicting this economy. While I was in DC the president was busy negotiating for a "$1.6 trillion tax increase, a $50 billion economic-stimulus program and new power to raise the federal debt limit without congressional approval." Does this sound like someone willing to reform a broken system? Meanwhile, many elected officials who are responsible for offering realistic solutions are instead trying to make Grover Norquist an issue (somebody not even elected to office), and I will remind any politician who signed the "no-new-tax" pledge that you were making a pledge to your constituents who voted for you, not to Grover Norquist.

Poor Billionaires:

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—Introducing a new wrinkle into the already fraught fiscal cliff showdown, a consortium of billionaires today warned that if their taxes are raised they will no longer have enough money to buy politicians.
...
Adding insult to injury for America’s billionaires, he says, “the simple dream of someday owning a President is slipping out of reach.”

“People think a billion dollars buys you a President, but they’re wrong,” he says. “It barely gets you a lemon like Mitt Romney.”

I'm not in favor of abolishing Grover Norquist. I just want to shrink it down to the size where we can drown it in the bathtub.

Except that he's a fat Republican, and it may take a while.

Dumb sh#t TGT continues to bash Obama with juvenile cartoons instead of trying to find out why his pathetic party (republicans) loss big in the last national election.

Dumb...just got dumber.

This would be the stake in the heart of the republican party on a national level. Gone forever.

BILLIONAIRES WARN HIGHER TAXES COULD PREVENT THEM FROM BUYING POLITICIANS
Posted by Andy Borowitz



WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—Introducing a new wrinkle into the already fraught fiscal cliff showdown, a consortium of billionaires today warned that if their taxes are raised they will no longer have enough money to buy politicians.

The group, led by casino billionaire Sheldon Adelson, commissioned a new study showing that the cost of an average politician has soared exponentially over the past decade.

While the American family has seen increases in the cost of food, health care and education, Mr. Adelson says, “those costs don’t compare with the cost of buying a politician, which has gone through the roof.”

The casino billionaire points to his group’s study, which puts the cost of purchasing an average House member at two million dollars and an average senator at several times that.

“And let’s say you buy a Senator like [South Carolina Senator] Jim DeMint and he decides to quit,” Mr. Adelson says. “Good luck trying to get your money back.”

The Vegas magnate complains that the media has ignored billionaires’ essential role in giving jobs to politicians who would otherwise have difficulty finding “honest work of any kind.”

“Billionaires are providing employment for a group of seriously incompetent and marginal people,” Mr. Adelson says. “You raise taxes on us, and who’s going to create those jobs? I really don’t think people have thought this through.”

Adding insult to injury for America’s billionaires, he says, “the simple dream of someday owning a President is slipping out of reach.”

“People think a billion dollars buys you a President, but they’re wrong,” he says. “It barely gets you a lemon like Mitt Romney.”

Obama crushed what's-his-name by 126 EV's and almost 5 million votes

CA State legislature has a 55-25 dem majority, and can do whatever in the hell it wants without a single repub vote

Supreme Court declared ObamaCare constitutionally valid

The guy I worked for as a video tech on his campaign spots, Dr. Raul Ruiz, defeated Mary Bono Mack and is one of 9 dem pickups in the House of Representatives

This wasn't too shabby either:

A great year of dem victories, so immensely gratifying to watch the repub party suffer and die!

Looks like there are some really blue states on this graph



Some 47 states and the nation's capital experienced an increase in their residents receiving nutrition assistance, with the District of Columbia, Alabama and Hawaii seeing the largest jump. No state experienced a statistically significant decrease.

Oregon had the highest share of households receiving food stamps at 18.9%. Wyoming had the lowest at 5.9%.

I'd just like to aknowledge TGT's resolute stand in the face of overwhelming opposition. Not only has his links and cartoons have steadfastly maintained a determined (if doomed) right wing presence on this thread, without which it would be nothing more than a chest thumping echo chamber of progressive triumphalism..... or at least nothing but.

In the face of friendly (and not so) fire and deminished reinforcements his lonely voice in the wilderness has not gone unappreciated.

Merry christmas and a happy new year
