    Are we going off the cliff? I saw a story in WashingtonPost that suggests sequestration is inevitable, anyway.

    Anyone know?

      but afaik, there still isn't a deal.

      To make the argument that the media has a left- or right-wing, or a liberal or a conservative bias, is like asking if the problem with Al-Qaeda is do they use too much oil in their hummus. Al Franken

        severely sprain our ankle.
        You know what I mean?
        It was totally avoidable, but there we are, rest, ice, compression and elevation.
        And everybody's going, "What happened to you?"
        And we're feeling stupid and having to say, "No, I wasn't drunk..." a lot.

        You can't make this stuff up.

      Decent look into how auto-cuts may finally pop the Beltway's recession-proof bubble, what with DOD contractors the first to go.

      (If my experience this year is any guide, the workers have already taken the hit; now the pencil pushers are gonna get it).

      Pardon our dust. Sig line under renovation.

      to get rid of the damn double-dose of Bush tax giveaways.

      That resets the top tax rate to what, 39.6%.

      Then "negotiations" deal with governing the country. That is not what the John Birch Society wing of the Republican Party -- aka Tea Party -- want.

      Not at all.

      They hate democracy. Where people get to vote. All of them.
