    It just amazes me that what they call "progress" in Washington is to tax the rich and make minute spending cuts.
    Of course, those two efforts combined will result in no real progress at all.
    It has become clear to me that ouside forces are the only way our politicians will act.
    The most serious threat is to lose our position as the world's currency. That will make the fiscal cliff look like a picnic.

    Isn't it interesting that when ther chips are down, the Democrats depend on Joe Biden, not Harry Reid, to negotiate their position?

    The milk-spike issue is because federal money is now being used for price supports. In other words, we are all chipping in to keep the price of milk at its current level (we are already paying).
