Let us begin with a sermon from St. Henry Miller:

"To walk in money through the night crowd, protected by money, lulled by money, dulled by money, the crowd itself a money, the breath money, no least single object anywhere that is not money. Money, money everywhere and still not enough! And then no money, or a little money, or less money, or more money but money always money . and if you have money , or you don't have money, it is the money that counts, and money makes money, but what makes money make money?"

If you think I'm full of it, let's just see what the first move of this new Republican congress will be: to try to make sure that tax cuts for the rich continue. We shall see whether I am right about this. We all know that politicians are very good about rewarding the people who put them in office (and I'm not talking about you and I who vote for them...)

I always liked Eddie Money.

I was trying to be comical but slightly accurate just like our good friend the Islander. My skepticism of politics in general (and my doubt that politicians really care that much about fixing the ecomony) overrides my partisan vitriol at most times.

I mean, think about it, you're pretty well off, you get to talk loudly in front of a room of bored people and wave your arms and people see it on CSPan, whether you fix the economy or not, you get paid the same amount of money by the public and the lobbyists - in fact, some lobbyists probably pay you more if you don't try to show real fiscal restraint - where's the motivation to actually do anything constructive about what is going on right now?

Conservative definition of the undeserving poor = (1) anyone I can keep outside of my gated community or (2) people who don't get paid for lying around doing nothing.

Liberal definition of "the rich" = Anyone that pays taxes

Actually I've heard that the first thing on Boehner's agenda will be mentioned in his opening remarks as Speaker. It will go something like:

"And henceforth across this great land there shall be no more talk of tanning salon taxes!"

Actually I agree with JJ. Spend it all, screw the deficit, we'll all be dead in 2012 anyway.

I'm confused? (easily done) Don't I want tax cuts? More money in my pockets? So. I can buy more cigars.
Then my rich boss can hire my brother-in-law and he can buy more cigars and beer and then I can buy more gas and visit my brother-in-law and smoke his cigars and drink his beer. I think I would like a tax cut.

Well, when I open my newest venture, a business. I promise never to outsource my work, will have my products made in the USA and smoke imported cigars. If you get to stressed out, stop by, take a soak, get a massage and sit in a sauna. All forms of payment accepted.

Well, wouldn't you know, I read an article about the new Republican congress, and they said that Boehner's first two agenda are to repeal Medicare cuts, and extend the tax cuts to everyone forever. Then, somehow he's going to shrink the deficit. Probably by giving back all the campaign money that he and the rest of the new congresspeople got from rich people . That would balance the budget in a second.
