I couldn’t resist. I saw the following article and I just had to write about it: http://money.cnn.com/2012/11/14/news/economy/obama-taxes-deficit/index.html?hpt=hp_t3 Yes, I know that in the post-2012 election era, my blog will naturally pivot to more philosophical writings, but some economic analyses will come up here and there.

From the conservative blog The Elephant in the Room – www.loudmouthelephant.com: As all of you have undoubtedly realized, November 6th, 2012 was not a good day for the GOP.
