Fiscal cliff: Coming soon to a nation near you!

Fiscal cliff: Coming soon to a nation near you!

As Hatfield (Obama) attempts to K'Nex with the American public by playing with Tinker Toys and Lincoln Logs today, the McCoys (Congress) stand their ground against the president's proposal to extend tax cuts on income under $250,000 per year.

Meanwhile, many Americans roll their eyes at the idea that President Barack Obama's administration is really working on a solution at all to help our economy in light of the wildly out-of-control government spending that continues daily in our nation.

Should we all be storing up food, securing our bug-out locations so we can survive what appears to be the inevitable fiscal cliff nosedive?

Since there's a serious problem with a certain drug war that can't be won, from the comment section under the article, Obama taking fiscal cliff fight to the public, JOSEOFTEXAS said, "Go off the cliff now, stop being so melodramatic. Any government that ruins millions of lives over a weed that is safer than aspirin deserves to go over the cliff. Where is the cliff so I can push them over it?"

Oh yeah, then there's that itsy bitsy issue with all the regular millions of dollars that fly out the door daily under our current administration's credit. Huh? You don't know what I'm talking about?

How about the fact that our thrifty federal government spends $25 billion a year keeping unused and vacant buildings maintained. Or the irony that our Energy Department forgets to turn the lights out to the tune of $2.2 million–check it out for yourself fromWastebook 2012.

Even Speaker of the House John Boehner contradicted himself from one day to the next about the progress of the fiscal cliff talks. Wednesday he said he's "optimistic that we can continue to work together to avert this crisis and sooner rather than later," while the very next day he said he was "disappointed" and that there's "a real danger" of going "off the cliff." Boehner said that "no substantive progress had been made" since negotiations began a couple of weeks ago.

Start your doomsday prepping folks, looks like we may have a Hollywood movie deal in the works: Fiscal cliff coming soon to a theatre near you!
