Fiscal cliff!!!!!!!!!!!

So is going over the fiscal cliff going to prevent you from feeding your children or buying a new snowboard? It really is the end of the world!!!

WHAT A FUCKING JOKE. DAMN, DO I HATE AMERICAN POLITICS.

I know it's going to effect me. From what I can figure, I'm going to have about $200 dollars less a month now for me and the wife's budget. It's not going to be the end of the world for us, but we're going to have to watch how we spend our money. Which means, I probably won't be buying a board next year...

Well I cant afford a new snowboard anyways but it will probably make it harder for me to land a fed job this summer.

Good point I keep waking up having nightmares that involve Nancy Pelosi.

Don't worry. There will be a deal once all the polictians get their stock options in order.

Is it bad I have no clue what this is and I don't think it'll effect me at all since I'll just do what I always do and find a way to shred.

"Fiscal Cliff"

Yet another media buzzword to scare the shit out of everyone. Then again, what you all call the largest economy in the world is really just the biggest debt hole ever dug... so ya, your all pretty much fucked

I'm no political or economical expert by anymeans, but eventually that much debt has to bite someone in the ass.

I'm thinking it will be just like Dec 21, 2012... nothing. Media loves to scare people to create a dramatic story and politicians will do anything to scare people into leaning toward their side.
