    In your opinion it maybe noncontributory ... but I think it's Funny and thus, it's my contribution.

    House Speaker John A. Boehner said Wednesday that Republicans are “willing to accept new revenue” coming to the federal government as part of a new debt deal, offering an early olive branch in the aftermath of Tuesday’s election.

    But the Ohio Republican said new tax money must not come from higher tax rates — something President Obama has pushed for, at least for the wealthy — and said it should come instead from getting rid of loopholes that distort the tax code.

    For the rest, which does contribute, how do you think that's going to prevent us going off a fiscal cliff.

    There is NO Fiscal Cliff ... only hysterical old impotent white men who are pissed off that they no longer run things. Therefore they resort to childish penalties and punishments in an immature effort to restrict anyone who has a different opinion than they do.

    Are you reading impaired ... ?

    My OPINION is; There's NO Fiscal Cliff ...

    ONLY arrogant politicians who are pissed off that they don't run the show anymore, therefore they inflict their anger and penalize all Americans because they can't stand it that there's a Black Man in their White House!


    That's MY OPINION about the Fiscal Cliff, because I don't believe there is one and NO ONE is going to Change or Give me my OPINIONS ... Never - Ever !

    This ain't 1912 ... it's 2012

    The warning was issued for "In your opinion it maybe noncontributory ... but I think it's Funny and thus, it's my contribution." followed by "Therefore they resort to childish penalties and punishments in an immature effort to restrict anyone who has a different opinion than they do." That is a violation of forum rules: if you have an issue with moderation use PMs.


    As to your opinion, do you have a rational argument to defend it, some economic data to go by? Serious discussion, imo, requires more than mere opinions.

    I’m not a professional Economist and I’m not getting paid for my Economic opinions on a Public Discussion Political Forum. Trust me, there are no experts here, only opinions. I’m also not responsible for anyone's misinterpretations of opinions due to their lack of personal knowledge on the issues. The United States Senate and Congress have resorting to childish penalties and punishments, among others, on the American People because of their immaturity and lack of respect for the Peoples Will. They are also pissed off because they are no longer in control of their future.

    Personally I could care less if anyone thinks my OPINION are rational or not … because they are “my” opinions and no one is required to defend opinions only argue them.

    Defending opinions is arguing them. Warnings are done.
