In reply to: GOP issues a new 'fiscal cliff' offer to Obama »

December 4, 2012

@Emperor1972: Every economist I read, and G.W. Bush's own Treasury Secretary, Paul O'Neill told him the Bush Tax Cuts would cause massive deficits. And they have. Right now, depending on which accounting one read, the Bush Tax Cuts account for 16 to 20 % of our deficit. Do you know his you get out of a hole? Stop digging the fracking hole! During the Clinton Administration we lived quite nicely with the tax rates. I think it's the Republicans that are posturing. They are saying the ball is in the President's court. Not true. Until these slimy, gutless hacks present a counter offer of spending cuts they would approve, the President should just sit and wait. The reason Romney didn't get elected is because every talk show he was on, when asked about which programs or which loop holes should be eliminated, he would say, I not telling you that here. Boehner did the same thing on Chris Wallace's show when asked to give specifics said,"I'm not going to negotiate those with you here." My question to the Republicans who have done nothing for the past 4 years but obstruct the President (as well as all growth in the economy), when will you give us some details?

    Blog: Can we please fix the Oscars?

    Summary:  Fun facts: The first-ever Oscar ceremony, held in 1929, ran a brisk 15 minutes. By contrast, the longest was in 2002, clocking in at a monstrous 4 hours and change. As usual, there are things I loved about it and things I didn't. Rather than be snarky or complain, I'll offer a few suggestions on how the organizers might bring the show into the 21st century.

    Winter storm drama

    Athens-Clarke County police officers responded to Pinewood Estates North on a 911 call concerning a heated domestic dispute. it reportedly was an argument over the lack of heat and food in a family's trailer and a woman was threatening to stab anyone who tried to take away her 7-month-old child. State patrol responded also, from their post nearby on U.S. Highway 29 North. The situation apparently was resolved. An officer reported he was driving the woman and infant to another home in Athens. read more
