    You can thank the dems for the personal tax cuts expiring because that was the only way the GOP could avoid a dem filibuster and get it passed with less than 60 votes. Why anyone blames the GOP for dem obstruction is beyond me.

    Hari Kari is a ancient Japanese tradition in response to personal shame.
    In these days, like in every other society, suicide happens. The question is whether its more prevalent these days in Japan because of shame or rather happens for reasons other than embarrassment.

    Not saying hari kari doesn't happen, just sayin' from personal experience living and working with Japanese folks its no longer the standard approach to acknowledging a big boo boo.

    More likely the response to a Japan business failure is like happens in the US... they get fired or declare bankruptcy. Then if they have the personal fortitude, they start over.

    Correct response. Doesn’t the UAW foster and defend corruption here lately....if not always? I’m not aware of any behavior shaming or dishonoring them enough to fall on their sword. :doh:l

    Why not make the corporate cuts expire instead of the ones for people?

    That shows their allegiances lie with their donors and not average Americans.

    At least Graham was honest about it:

    Graham specifically said that "financial contributions will stop" for the GOP.

    Then the GOP might have had to compromise and give lower and middle income people a larger share of the cuts, not the 1% and corporations
