• Yay, it's 2013. I'm holding out hope that this year is better than 2012 was. On the one hand, it can scarce get much worse than 2012. On the other hand, Obama still president, so it probably can get worse than 2012.
Still, I'll try and be optimistic.
• So, I'd summarize what happened last night with the House and this "fiscal cliff bill" thing, but I am still trying to sort it out myself.
The gist of it, as far as I can tell, is that the Republicans keeled over and let the president have his way for some reason I cannot fathom. The reports out are saying that the democrats agreed to a whole dollar of spending cuts for every 44 dollars of new taxes. Spending cuts that most likely will not happen.
I think we just need a new political party because the Republicans are pretty much worthless at this point.
• That's enough for now, carry on.
