The Simpson’s Mr. Burns explains the “Fiscal Cliff”

The “fiscal cliff” is really a Fiscal Bluff — as in “Think I’m bluffing?” Great video from the Simpsons:

Best quote:

Think of the economy as a car, and the rich man as the driver. If you don’t give the driver all the money, he’ll drive you over a cliff.

Much to like in that video. Enjoy!

    The Middle Class is mostly made of of the people that refuse to face fact that they are poor so they ran up huge credit card debts to feed the illusion of Granger they want to live in. That said; people we went over the fiscal cliff 4 years ago and are treading water to keep afloat with poverty. If you buy into this scam of about to go over the ‘financial cliff’ and therefore we need the ever ready to sacrifice the common man Obama to grandly bargain the great betrayal similar to the 4 or is it 5 bank bail outs and the scam mortgage settlement agreement to save the economy it is going to cost you far more in the long run than just letting the tax cuts fade into never, never land as the TBTF Banks, Corporations and the 2% start paying their fair share (this is the financial cliff).

    And the driver has an ejection seat, parachute and GPS. Oh wait, he’s not the real driver. The driver is in East Cupcake Texas, and the car is being driven over the cliff like a drone.
