Well, maybe he's dead; he certainly looks dead to me anyway!

So you compromise and agree on $125. You didn't cut spending you just agreed not to spend as much as you planned.$85 billion dollars is a joke. If they have to do what every one is screaming about over $85 billion then we are in a whole lot more trouble than they are letting on.
Did FEMA Create a Youth Army?

Posted on November 30, 2012

Q: Did the Department of Homeland Security create a “standing army of government youth” known as FEMA Corps.

A: No. FEMA Corps is a civilian operation within AmeriCorps, a federal community service program. FEMA Corps prepares and responds to disasters. Its members, ages 18 to 24, carry no weapons.

A few readers sent us this email, which dresses up conspiracy theories with unrelated photographs and selected snippets from a government press release.

The gist of the email is that the federal government is stockpiling bullets, instituting martial law and arming youths in President Barack Obama’s army of “Brown Shirts”— none of which is true.

The email attributes the source of the information to an article on www.itmakessenseblog.com . The site’s “We Believe” page claims that “Left wing progressives have infiltrated both the Democrat and Republican Party.” It also says:“modern liberalism and progressivism may still both support many of the same Socialistic, Communistic or Maoist policies.”

The email’s link to the article is broken. And the site no longer carries the article. But the blog has published other pieces that similarly warn of Obama’s ”‘brown shirt’ brigades” or “civilian national security force.”

This email is the most recent incarnation of a claim we debunked in 2008 and 2010.

sequester....

So here sit Republicans, teeth clenched, gripping their desks, waiting for the “devastating” cuts to explode the economy and just hoping that Obama will get some of the blame for having invented the thing. They are assuming that $85 billion less spent by the government will cause devastation in an economy of some $16 trillion. What a bunch of Keynesians.

If the cuts are so bad, why not just stop them? Quit the puffery about offsets versus tax hikes and just kill the monster they helped make. The Senate would surely go along and the president would only too happily sign.

As it is, Republicans and Obama look like two firemen standing outside of a burning building arguing about whether to use water from the hydrant or the truck to put it out.“Wait until you see my press release blaming you!” screams one.“Oh yeah, well I’m going to hit you with the snarkiest Tweets ever!” screams the other.

Republicans have rhetorically contorted themselves into what Obama has long accused them of being: politicians who would harm the American economy and people in order to win a political fight with him.

The Fading Conservative Brand
....A lot of this applies to the psychology of contemporary political conservatism. There is in it so much anger, so much defensiveness, and “a total absence of criteria for self-criticism.” After a while, you just don’t want much to do with it. In the Eighties, and even into the Nineties, conservatism was the future. It sure felt that way. Now, I can’t say liberalism feels like the future the way conservatism did back then — maybe I’m just older now, and can’t be that optimistic about politics of any sort — but the conservatism we have on offer today absolutely feels like a dead end.
I know, I know, none of this griping is new. More than a few of us on the Right have been saying things like this for some time, though the critique remains an outsider one. Eventually it will break through; defeat upon defeat has a way of bringing the most thick-skulled ideologues to their senses.

The Connecticut priest charged last month with dealing crystal meth was feared to be on the brink of a nervous breakdown, it has been revealed, as the cracks began to appear at the start of his astonishing fall from grace.

The suspended Roman Catholic priest was arrested on federal drug charges last month for allegedly having methamphetamine mailed to him from co-conspirators in California and making more than $300,000 in drugs sales out of his apartment in Waterbury in the second half of last year.

Along the way, authorities said, he bought a small adult video and sex toy shop in the nearby town of North Haven named 'Land of Oz & Dorothy's Place,' apparently to launder all the money he was making.

A spokesperson for Whole Foods says that a store on Manhattan’s Upper West Side has taken down an advertisement that featured Barack Obama’s likeness, but insisted the company meant “no disrespect” by using the nation’s first African-American president to sell chicken.
Upper West Side resident Woody Henderson contacted WNBC after he saw the sign advertising whole organic chicken for $1.99 a pound. The advertisement sat outside the store’s entrance and included a color drawing of the president.
“There are certain things that have been used to put down black people: watermelon, fried chicken,” Henderson explained.
Raw Story ( http://s.tt/1A3uP )
Whole Foods should just refrain from using minorities in any advertising.
