Everybody -- Inside The Beltway -- Is Playing It!

  • Title: 'The Fiscal Cliff' -- The Goal to avoid all of the following while in search of the one object that can save us -- The Moral Compass.
Part I: Escape The Deficit Dragon
  • Abstract: When faced with the “Fiscal Cliff” we were confronted with a “Wall of Worry.”. Fortunately at the bottom of the Wall there was an opening. We crawled through the “Hole of Hopelessness” and come out refreshed that we had escaped the “”Cave of Calamity.” We at once traversed the “Benign Bog” and set sail across the “Gulf of Gullibility though the “Fog of Fallibility.” We believed we had been delivered until we heard the “Fatal Fall” which led us over into the “Drop Dead Deficit.” More trials lay before us, including The “Senate of Senility,” the “House of Horrors” and the “Cabinet of Confusion.” Moreover, to reach our goal that is the “Congress of Confidence” with the “Signs of Sensibility,” we would first need to find our trusted Moral Compass.

Comment Guidelines

We encourage you to use comments to engage with users, share your perspective and ask questions of authors and each other. However, in order to maintain the high level of discourse we’ve all come to value and expect, please keep the following criteria in mind: 

  • Enrich the conversation
  • Stay focused and on track. Only post material that’s relevant to the topic being discussed.
  • Be respectful. Even negative opinions can be framed positively and diplomatically.
  •  Use standard writing style. Include punctuation and upper and lower cases.
  • NOTE: Spam and/or promotional messages and links within a comment will be removed
  • Avoid profanity, slander or personal attacks directed at an author or another user.
  • Don’t Monopolize the Conversation. We appreciate passion and conviction, but we also believe strongly in giving everyone a chance to air their thoughts. Therefore, in addition to civil interaction, we expect commenters to offer their opinions succinctly and thoughtfully, but not so repeatedly that others are annoyed or offended. If we receive complaints about individuals who take over a thread or forum, we reserve the right to ban them from the site, without recourse.
  • Only English comments will be allowed.

Perpetrators of spam or abuse will be deleted from the site and prohibited from future registration at Investing.com’s discretion.
