Tyler, Tx — Looks like 2013 will be a lot like 2012 when it come to political lunacy. All the national media has been and still is aflutter with the "fiscal cliff."
I tell you what's terrorizing to me, the so-called mainstream media not doing their job anymore.
One thing they have not been reporting-- or maybe I've just missed it-- President Obama gave all federal workers a pay raise with the stroke of his mighty pen. For federal workers it was a thank you for supporting him in the campaign. But, your senators and congressmen also got raise.
About that I have heard not much in the Hurrumph, Hurrumph Outrage Department. Yeah, senators from Alaska-- God bless them-- but you've never even heard about them wanting to block the pay raises along with a few congressmen.
But the media is still fiscal cliffing. Has anyone done the fiscal cliff math? The house still has a say so, but the Senate deal is one dollar of pay cuts
per every 41 dollars of tax increases.
That Mitch McConnell, he drives a hard bargain, doesn't he?
So, the money continues to flow in our nation's capitol. Your money, by the way.
That's my point of view, what's yours?
