Oct. 26 (Bloomberg) -- Senate Democrats on the congressional supercommittee charged with reducing government debt proposed a plan that would cut almost $3 trillion over 10 years and includes $1.3 trillion in tax increases, according to a congressional aide.
Unstated is the assumption that it is impossible to organize the economy to be more productive, and thus to produce more real revenue (partly by producing more of the stuff we really need - such as nuclear power, transportation, and fresh water - and thus bringing down the cost). This Congress is acting like a bunch of pod people, or a bunch of hostages suffering from Stockholm Syndrome, and Obama is using their staged inaction as an excuse to transform into a fascist dictator, pretending that what he wants is what's best for us, when what he wants is what the British oligarchy wants.
Obama, showing his fascist transformation, evidently ordered Ghaddafi to be executed to prevent him from revealing too many "state secrets" in any trial, and Ghaddafi was dead the next day. Then the gang now running Libya showed its true ghoulish "morality" by putting Ghaddafi's body on display, just like Italy did when it made a big show of "dumping fascism," by executing Mussolini and his wife and putting their bodies on display. The fascism never left - it was just hidden.
