ok, taxmageddon is 35 days away.

I'll go for the Clinton era tax rates (either on everyone, or even just those evil 2% who make > $250K) on one condition - you agree to go back to the Clinton era spending.  Otherwise, you know you're being facetious as to how to solve the issue.

+Matt Oberlin also, I'm willing to say that eventually we should spend continue to decrease the % of the GDP that is consumed by federal spending.  My problem with the proposed tax/revenue increases being proposed is that it will immediately be used for new spending - which has been the historical truth the last two times that a President agreed to tax increases coupled with spending decreases (Reagan in 1986 - $3 cuts for each $1 in tax increases - actual was $1.5 spending increase for each $1 tax;  Bush's 1990 "read my lips" was supposed to be 2:1, wound up being $1.1 additional spending for each $1)

I've seen missed free throws before (and I've missed more than my share over the years), but this one takes the cake...
 
Air-balling a free throw is bad... and then there's this.

Question to those living in Chicago/Illinois/MidWest.  Is it likely that the person who held the now ex-Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr's seat prior to Rep Jackson (Mel Reynolds) will be re-elected to Congress?

http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/politics/clout/chi-convicted-former-rep-mel-reynolds-wants-jackson-seat-in-congress-20121128,0,4033691.story

A man with just a few 'troubles' in his background - including jail time for sex with a minor (commuted by Pres Clinton) - could go back to Congress?  Say it ain't so.  But then again, if you could overwhelmingly elect a man who'd been in the hospital for 4 months and under a federal investigation cloud, I guess anyone can be elected.

The Fisherman

One day a fisherman was lying on a beautiful beach, with his fishing pole propped up in the sand and his solitary line cast out into the sparkling blue surf. He was enjoying the warmth of the afternoon sun and the prospect of catching a fish.

About that time, a businessman came walking down the beach, trying to relieve some of the stress of his workday. He noticed the fisherman sitting on the beach and decided to find out why this fisherman was fishing instead of working harder to make a living for himself and his family.

"You aren't going to catch many fish that way," said the businessman to the fisherman, "you should be working rather than lying on the beach!"

The fisherman looked up at the businessman, smiled and replied, "And what will my reward be?"

"Well, you can get bigger nets and catch more fish!" was the businessman's answer.

"And then what will my reward be?" asked the fisherman, still smiling.

The businessman replied, "You will make money and you'll be able to buy a boat, which will then result in larger catches of fish!"

"And then what will my reward be?" asked the fisherman again.

The businessman was beginning to get a little irritated with the fisherman's questions. "You can buy a bigger boat, and hire some people to work for you!" he said.

"And then what will my reward be?" repeated the fisherman.

The businessman was getting angry. "Don't you understand? You can build up a fleet of fishing boats, sail all over the world, and let all your employees catch fish for you!"

Once again the fisherman asked, "And then what will my reward be?"

The businessman was red with rage and shouted at the fisherman, "Don't you understand that you can become so rich that you will never have to work for your living again! You can spend all the rest of your days sitting on this beach, looking at the sunset. You won't have a care in the world!"

The fisherman, still smiling, looked up and said, "And what do you think I'm doing right now?"
