I was initially opposed to the sequestration simply because it was one more example of the Republican leadership caving when they actually had a position of strength. Having mandatory defense cuts looked like a win/win for the Democrats. However, after all the hysterics of the past week with Obama parading out his "usual suspects" in terms of who would be hurt and his ridiculous laundry list of programs and people facing dire circumstances if the sequestration went through, I decided to do a little research.(Should have done it in the first place.) What a joke! Once again, everyone is playing the Washington game of "if you don't increase spending as much as you said you would, it's a cut." Only in Washington could you say "we spent $100 billion last year, we were going to spend $110 billion this year, but now we are only going to spend $108 billion. Oh, woe is us, our budget has been cut by $2 billion." Excuse me, you are still spending $8 billion more than last year - nowhere in the land of logic is that a cut. Example, Leon Panetta claims that that DoD will face a 20% cut over ten years if sequestration goes through. LIE. With sequestration, defense increases 18% instead of 20% over those ten years- oh, the sky is falling. And the same is true of the all the other areas supposedly impacted by the sequestration. They are facing no cuts at all, only decreases in the rate of increase.
Our only hope:
1. Term limits.
2. End Baseline budgeting
3. Balanced budget amendment
Please can we get a little sanity in Washington.
Maybe the government will let me run my personal finances this way? Think they'll let us do that?

Yeah and we're spitting these babies out faster than the old folks are dying. To parents that are babies themselves and have no business having one child and surely not four or five. I think people should have to be licensed to have a child. That they go through some kind of parenting class or something other than home ec. I think that if a young girl gets pregnant without a license. That the parent of the male should be held accountable. That would slow down all these punks from going around creating babies that they never plan on taking care of. These fat a$$ kids are going to eat us out of house and home. Why are these preppers prepping? I think it's they're scared of starving or being killed and eaten. Right?

Facts as to birth rates in the U.S.:

Pew Research Center: The US birth rate – the number of births per 1,000 women – fell last year to a record low, led by a significant decrease in the number of children born to immigrant women.

Quote.
Based on preliminary data, Pew says, the country’s birth rate in 2011 was 63.2 per 1,000 women – about half the rate of the Baby Boom years, when, in 1957, say, there were 122.7 babies per 1,000 women. That’s the lowest since at least 1920, when the government began keeping reliable birth rate statistics.
End of Quote.

Illegal aliens increase the labor pool of unskilled and semi-skilled workers, increasing profits for employers, by decreasing wages, and assisting in the destruction of the Middle Class;

meanwhile

illegal aliens pay Social Security taxes,(without any right to collect), subsidizing payments by the shrinking payor pool caused by the lower birth rates.

Life is complicated.

Oh wait ... I forgot... Those facts are "Cut and Pasted", which makes them "pretend".

Have no worries, the DREAM ACT will push through, it's just a matter of time. Amnesty granted to appromiately 11 million illegals, up to the age of 35. Yeah, there are rules, stipulations and other requirements which must be met, but who's going to be tracking them? Nobody.

So it doesn't matter if US births rate are down. We're moving hispanics in and they'll be sure to birth some babies. US born = US citizens.

but,it should also be noted that the parents of the girl should be held respondsible,too.believe it or not,some of them actually encourage this behavior if they think it will improve there station in society or if they think it may be a financial benefit.

Can you imagine how desperately bored, lonely, and sad someone must be to lower himself or herself to pretend to be someone else and post under another name on TOPIX ?

I believe the pretender needs our prayers. Perhaps, God, Allah, Vishnu, or whatever name you call the Supreme Being can help this poor person.

The thought to use another poster's name has never crossed my mind. But I have a happy life and far from bored. Guess it shows there are a few weirdos amongst us. And that''s putting it mildly. He's definitley bored and lonely alright.
