Abstract: Paul Krugman, as usual, holds out for the maximum tax penalty that can be forced upon the middle and upper classes. He advised Obama [whoever he really is] to “So stand your ground, Mr. President, and don’t give in to threats. No deal is better than a bad deal. The threat here is that costs will rise very high and the small businesses, creators of some 70% of new jobs, will not be able to continue and will fold. Krugman thinks the threat is the absence of new and higher taxes while the facts indicate that the threat is the massive and intractable debt we have now pushing more than $16.,000,000,000, dollars and average load upon our citizens in the upper half of no $250,000 since half our population does into pay taxes. Krugman is willing to have us go into the Fiscal Cliff [that Krugman calls “disaster capitalism”] than hold off on major tax hikes. Obviously, we have to stand firm on both the tax increases and the debt ceiling. We must, or we will look like Russia or Cuba. Krugman never believed that the debt was serious. Let us go over the Fiscal Cliff as the alternative is worse.
The New York Times—aka the Walter Duranty Papers [anagram is appropriately ‘wet laundry rat’]—excels in propaganda in all forms and hosts our famous non-economist Paul Krugman’s essays us on why the low class vote Democrat and embrace the splendors of socialism. Today we are informed that the Republicans offer a threat to our system by not allowing massive new tax hikes to pollute our system like a rancid tumor. The debt is not a real problem and the fiscal cliff is a mere invention conjured in some Halloween skit designed to scare children.
Krugman gloats showing no shame:
“To say the obvious: Democrats won an amazing victory. Not only did they hold the White House despite a still-troubled economy, in a year when their Senate majority was supposed to be doomed, they actually added seats.”-- Let’s Not Make a Deal By PAUL KRUGMAN Published: November 8, 2012
They also stuffed ballot boxes up to nearly 100% in places like Philly. 
“But one goal eluded the victors. Even though preliminary estimates suggest that Democrats received somewhat more votes than Republicans in Congressional elections, the G.O.P. retains solid control of the House thanks to extreme gerrymandering by courts and Republican-controlled state governments. And Representative John Boehner, the speaker of the House, wasted no time in declaring that his party remains as intransigent as ever, utterly opposed to any rise in tax rates even as it whines about the size of the deficit.”-- Let’s Not Make a Deal
As is typical in the sleazy leftist arena of propaganda, we hear that the enemy is responsible for every dent in the system and the remaining obstacle is the House which was criminally constructed by the actions of the courts and Republicans in the several states. We can always depend upon an omission of the famous gerrymandering to get districts for blacks. No mention of that. The House majority being of a party not directly associated with the Democrats is a crime against humanity.
“So President Obama has to make a decision, almost immediately, about how to deal with continuing Republican obstruction. How far should he go in accommodating the G.O.P.’s demands?”-- Let’s Not Make a Deal
“My answer is, not far at all. Mr. Obama should hang tough, declaring himself willing, if necessary, to hold his ground even at the cost of letting his opponents inflict damage on a still-shaky economy. And this is definitely no time to negotiate a “grand bargain” on the budget that snatches defeat from the jaws of victory”-- Let’s Not Make a Deal [Emphasis is mine in all quotes unless specified otherwise]
This slimy and clearly un-American effluvium is thusly repeated for emphasis:
“Nobody wants to see that happen. Yet it may happen all the same, and Mr. Obama has to be willing to let it happen if necessary.”-- Let’s Not Make a Deal
Well, that is a rather rare example of a krugmanical rant that has few other interpretations. He proudly sounds like his mentor Walter Duranty or perhaps Bernard Shaw or Marx.
Krugman sums up:
“Mr. Obama essentially surrendered in the face of similar tactics at the end of 2010, extending low taxes on the rich for two more years. He made significant concessions again in 2011, when Republicans threatened to create financial chaos by refusing to raise the debt ceiling. And the current potential crisis is the legacy of those past concessions.
And later in the article:
So stand your ground, Mr. President, and don’t give in to threats. No deal is better than a bad deal.“-- Let’s Not Make a Deal
We already have the corporate highest taxes in the world and now we need more taxes and want Cap and Trade and more medical programs and welfare and food stamps. We clearly need to import more illegal aliens so they can vote for Democrats and we need to give them citizenship and welfare and whatever else they want. The future is bleak now because the ‘poor’ have been promised money for their votes and they will take any and all monies offered to them since they don’t have to pay taxes so they clearly do not care.
This is the beginning of the end of freedom in the US. We await chaos and an omnipotent government who will take our wealth by one means or another. This is Leninism in its infancy.
Let us go over the Fiscal Cliff as the alternative is worse.

 In honor of that celebrated Communist stooge and liar and winner of the Pulitzer Prize for the
NYT. The color RED is used in my essays in honor of Walter Duranty, a saint, if there could be one, in the Marxist
Archives of Honor.
“He said that these people had to be "liquidated or melted in the hot fire of exile and labor into the proletarian mass". Duranty claimed that the Siberian labor camps were a means of giving individuals a chance to rejoin Soviet society but also said that for those who could not accept the system, "the final fate of such enemies is death. "Duranty, though describing the system as cruel, says he has "no brief for or against it, nor any purpose save to try to tell the truth". He ends the article with the claim that the brutal collectivization campaign which led to the famine was motivated by the "hope or promise of a subsequent raising up" of Asian-minded masses in the Soviet Union which only history could judge.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Walter_Duranty

 Vote was astronomical for Obama in some Philadelphia wards
“In a city where President Obama received more than 85 percent of the votes, in some places he received almost every one. In 13 Philadelphia wards, Obama received 99 percent of the vote or more.
Those wards, many with large African American populations, also swung heavily for Obama over John McCain in 2008. But the difficult economy seemed destined to dampen that enthusiasm four years later.
Not to worry. Ward leaders and voters said they were just as motivated this time.”

Property is organized robbery. ~George Bernard Shaw
These characteristics were more than welcome when he joined the Fabian Society in 1884 as one of its first members. Shaw was a freethinker, a supporter of women’s rights and an advocate of income equality. He vividly fought for abolition of private property, which can be seen in his essay “Economic”, part of the famous Fabian Essays (1889), of which he was also an editor. Shaw’s pragmatic approach to politics and his welfare views along with his talents made a very distinct contribution to the society
