    What happened to the Sunday Open Thread? Why are we talking about useless stuff when more important subjects such as the Fiscal Cliff stalemate is happening? Let’s talk about that for a minute…

    As reported on CBS commentary this morning, the current drama is getting old. Both sides are preaching to their own choir, rather than negotiating with each other in real working sessions. As I noted before, I believe the issue will get resolved at the end. If they can’t convince each other, they just have to vote it out. It’s as simple as that.

    Personally, I would not be totally disappointed if we simply allow ourselves to fall off the cliff. In that scenario, the government will finally be able to collect the revenue it needs to pay down the national debt. The tax reductions implemented previously was never meant to be permanent, and it is in fact hurting the next generation. America needs a recession before it can get better in the long run. It must learn to live with a recession. Obama is not up for re-election ever again, so now is as good of a time as any to bite the bullet.

    Did you notice the Saturday Open Thread?

    You’re welcome.

    Hmm, aren’t we just exiting a recession? Or do you mean a permanent recession? That’s kind of what it sounds like when you say “learn to live with recession.” Kind of a defeatist attitude; I think if they put a little effort into it, they can come up with a better solution.

  5. Real Estater Says:

    That’s just naive thinking. If there’s a better solution, you would be living it already.

  6. nomadic Says:

    Bwahahaha, who is naive? Have you seen what Congress has been “doing” for the past four years?

  7. SV Shopper Says:

    RE does have a good point though. Not sure if you guys missed it. Fiscal Cliff is kind of a hype if you think about it. How did the country work before Bush introduced tax cuts for the rich? If there is a cliff, the Republicans put us there. If nothing is done, aren’t we just going back to the old days when we actually paid back our debts?

    I’m bracing for higher taxes, higher rent, and higher home prices next year.

  10. Petsmart groomer Says:

    > […] and higher home prices next year.

    Yeah, getting rid of the mortgage interest deduction will surely increase home prices! Now if only they had the guts to do it. And while they’re at it, get rid of the $500k capital gain deduction too.

    And in this scenario, the spammer will finally be able to attempt to collect the revenue it needs to pay its webhosting bill. The URL reductions implemented previously was never meant to be permanent, and it is in fact hurting the next generation of unwanted advertising. Comment spam needs a recession before it can get better in the long run. Spurious placement of hot-linked ad at end of comment on taxation and the deficit, in response to article about donating real estate parcels to charity. Thanks for playing. Including your URL twice was an interesting variation, which meant we removed it three times. That means you’re also running a deficit. FAIL FAIL FAILBROOK HOMES. FAIL. –ed.

    Fiscal cliff is not just about tax increases. It’s also about spending cuts. A lot of those cuts will be in defense. One analysis says that if we jump the cliff, we will trim our budget deficit by 5 trillion to 14 trillion. That worst case scenario is also the best case scenario for budget deficit reduction.
