Republicans (meaning Establishment) are all about “talking the talk”. They are not going to do anything serious but go along to get along with the Dems. I gave up when i realized that nobody is going to jail over F&F and I doubt that anything will happen in the end with Benghazi or the other scandals and they will cave in to Obama with the fiscal cliff, oh I’m sure there will more hearings and make threats about how serious they are on the Sunday Morning shows but its all a show
I've come to the conclusion that total economic collapse is inevitable. On the plus side, Eastern Europe emerged rapidly from the ruins of communism. A quick collapse, with a default on the debt, could force a return to the economic "state of nature" --a market economy.
OTOH, the collapse could be blamed on "capitalism." That thought keeps me up at night.
