'Consequences' on the way for the United States

Published: Wednesday, December 12, 2012 at 20:29 PM.

I was absolutely shocked last week when Nancy Pelosi said something true. I’ve never heard such from her before, and may not again, so I didn’t want to pass up the opportunity to congratulate her.

It was a small item but caught my ear, given the source. Pelosi was speaking of the current debate going on relating to the approaching "fiscal cliff." She noted elections have consequences and Republicans lost.

Bingo! She’s dead-on right.

So here cometh those consequences. Taxes are going up. The open sore of unemployment will keep oozing. We conservatives can get over it.

The United States will languish under the weight of the victor’s boot, and I hope "languish" is the extent of it. However if President Obama manages to spend fast enough and interest rates tick upward as they must, it could quickly go critical.

So we losers are expected to grab our ankles and grit our teeth. There’s no way that this administration will agree to anything that alters its socialist trajectory. Karl is on the march and he’s singing, "Forward!"

He must really love poor people because he’ll be making a pile of them. Now Democrats enjoy a "please don’t throw me in the briar patch" situation. If they do nothing, all taxes rise. It’s pure Elvis. They want it, they need it and they love it.
