    That link has nothing to do with austerity or the fiscal cliff either.

    Could the USMB Resident Luddite actually be waking up to the truth?

    From the article:
    Spot on!

    Now let's see if Luddy really understands who is at fault and who is in control and how this gets fixed or if he just plays his usual stupid partisan politics.

    What is it gonna' be Luddy?

    We need to start preparing for a fake alien invasion in order to borrow/spend. Which will of course, as the last 4 years have shown, be wonderful for the economy.

    Good article, isn't it funny how there is a direct correlation to the increasing government size and control with the decline of society. Maybe instead of preparing for a fake alien invasion, we should address the real invasion of the professional politicians.
