Since it's a new thread how about a link to the spreadsheet so new participants can get started. It would be nice if we could get a few extra players!

Surely the US has to rein in it's spending, doesn't it ? To just go on spending more and more is ludicrous. Unless the game plan is to spend as much as possible and then renege on it's debts ?
Obama seems not to be able to say NO to the military etc. Congress etc. can't make a sensible decision. Heading for a fudge I expect just delaying the inevitable meltdown. All so unnecessary too.

I think the problem was Raegan and Bush-economics of giving away tax cuts that could not be justified or afforded. In particular to oil and motor industries. I guess one can throw in the Pentagon and NASA and couple of wars in there too.

What are the Republicans offering now? More tax cuts...

That's what I call genious??? :cheesy:


Did the Republicans lose the elections or Obama win it? :rolleyes:

Hard to figure out. It's all on the fiscal cliff. Deal = Way up, No Deal = Way Down.
I'm guessing No Deal ---> 1390

Peter
yes pete i had the same problem as your good self.
I see you have gone with the grand old duke of york theory.
I'm wondering if i should have done the same.

so when were up were up and when were down were down and when were only half way up were neither up nor down.

good call.

First call of mine to ring in the new year!

Hard to say for next week. It could go either way. Guess I'll bet on up like the chump I am. 1430!
