The Fiscal Cliff

Is there anyone besides me who is tired of the government using movie disaster metaphors in an attempt scare the s**t out of us.  How about a spread sheet or a business plan and if they’re afraid we might not be able to read them maybe they should teach us.  This is another example of the dumbing of America.  It’s an affront to me and should be to you that the government uses sound bites like “The Fiscal Cliff” to describe what happens if you spend more than what you have for decades.  It’s about the same as the airlines describing a plane crashing into the ocean as a “water landing”.  Let’s start calling things by their real names.
