Well played, Agent Orange, well played!

A very strong statement from Speaker Boehner:

“Tomorrow the House will pass legislation to make permanent tax relief for nearly every American — 99.81% of the American people. Then the President will have a decision to make. He can call on the Senate Democrats to pass that bill or he can be responsible for the largest tax increase in American history.”

Your move, Mr. President.

    Yeehaw! Obama must be fuming, which makes me very happy.
    Pelosi will look like an asshole too.
    This could be a popcorn day!

    Preezy’s had a bad day. Jake Tapper even asked him a hard question at the presser today that prompted a response “Well I’m the President and I’ve been busy……” Heh.

    He also checked the morons on the right who have decided that spending energy on the “replace Boehner” movement is more important than exposing Obama’s hypocrisy during these “negotiations.”
    You might recognize them — they are the same group who found “defeating” Romney during the primaries and picking HIM apart during the General more important than presenting a unified right to defeat an incumbent (they’re also engaged right now in a “blame the loss on Romney” campaign that is second in priority only to their “replace Boehner” movement).

    Just watched the “presser.”
    And I may have cackled.

    Oh, and how about that Government Motors?
    Can’t wait to shove that up the asses of all the morons who told me everything was just hunky dory ’cause they said so on NPR.

    Taxpayers will lose money on the deal, but it gets the government out of the car business. GM has done well over the past three years, piling up $16 billion in profits as car sales bounced back. Now it looks forward to losing the stigma of government ownership β€” including the derisive moniker “Government Motors” β€” that it claims cost it sales since it left bankruptcy protection in 2009.

    As part of a deal announced Wednesday, GM will spend $5.5 billion to buy back 200 million shares from the Treasury from now through the end of the year. That will leave the government with 300 million shares, or a 19 percent stake, which it plans to sell during the next 12 to 15 months.

    A sucker’s deal but the $$ sure came in handy for Obama’s re-election.

    BERKELEY β€”

    Researchers at the UC Berkeley and the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory have put the squeeze β€” literally β€” on malignant mammary cells to guide them back into a normal growth pattern.
    Malignant Breast Cells

    Shown are fluorescence images of uncompressed (left) and compressed (right) colonies of malignant breast epithelial cells. Compressed colonies are smaller and more organized. (Images courtesy of Fletcher Lab)

    The findings, presented Monday, Dec. 17 at the annual meeting of the American Society for Cell Biology in San Francisco, show for the first time that mechanical forces alone can revert and stop the out-of-control growth of cancer cells. This change happens even though the genetic mutations responsible for malignancy remain, setting up a nature-versus-nurture battle in determining a cell’s fate.

    Likely more Street Theater from the ruling Uni-party. The Kick the financial can down the road legislation is probably already agreed to. From the point of view of what sets the best direction for the Country, the “Cliff” seems the only legitimate option.

    At this point, I don’t care if they roll in feathers and cluck like chickens.
    As long as the fuckers stop stealing from small businesses.

    Glad to hear Rand Paul hasn’t rolled over, though. He’s still railing about spending.
