FISCAL CLIFF IS A JOKE!!
The FISCAL CLIFF IS A JOKE!!
The camel's back was broken 8 years ago and they've piled a mountain of straw on this dying corpse since then. In January 2013, his masters planned to pull off a bail of straw as a gesture to show they tried, but the screaming masses want this thing to stay buried so they will compromise and leave most of that bail on the camel.
The real fiscal cliff is far gloomier than almost anyone can imagine as there has never been a time in history when so much of the world relied so heavily on a single currency and that currency could collapse under its own weight at any time via currency speculation, sending the entire world into chaos. No one can predict exactly when it will happen, but the gold chart going parabolic would be the prime indicator.
Do your own math, and start by visiting the CBO and don't rely on the mathematically inept US president to give you economic advice. (He can be heard on Leno saying, "“The math stuff was fine up until about seventh grade,” Obama said. “Malia is now a freshman in high school. I’m pretty lost.”)
