Shame on you, Obama's Media, for rolling over like dogs for his grab.

If humanity is too flawed to be trusted with general liberty, then who are the humans who will supervise humanity? And the human voters who will supervise the human supervisors?

Brian Williams in grave tones: "The sequester could shut down control towers at our busiest airports!"

Rational citizen (me) in fed up tones: "If a 2% cut does that, it's because O is incompetent or vindictive in his zeal for endless government growth."

Is anthropology just history conducted in violation of the personal space of the dead?

Do hipsters know the Che on their chest thought gays belong in prison?

If liberals want to scrap the war on drugs as a counterproductive, liberty-sapping, government-growing failure (I'm with you guys!)...

...will they consider the war on poverty through the same lens?

Have seen a facile phrase once too often...

People...he is my president, and yours. I may disagree with most everything he does. But under our Constitutional process, a majority of electoral votes went his way.

I'm not an American only when I agree with what other Americans vote for. I'm an American by birth, by creed, by gratitude, and by determination to fight for what that means to me.

The duly elected president will be my president until I renounce my citizenship; I don't see that happening.

"Sequestration" is not a euphemism for national gelding. It means pre-agreed,(as in passed by Congress and signed by the president) cuts of federal spending, both domestic and defense.

It's a little clumsy and imprecise, but it's one heck of a lot better then NO reductions, and the continued rocket increases we'd get from our lawmakers.

So, tell the president and his media sob chorus to stuff it. Three cheers for sequestration and the only real cuts in spending we might see in our lifetime!

Did you ever notice politicians almost always praise whatever right they're about to trash? It's a classic prohibitionist head-fake:

"I support [insert:“the 1st Amendment, 2nd Amendment, property rights, economic liberty” whatever...]“But, in this case…”[then argue sharply against some alleged abuse, and for some further restriction of rights...]

Thus does the anti-liberty worm inch.

Do folks realize that Clinton-era prosperity happened under Clinton-size government?

The government and policies of then are drastically different from the government and policies of now. Hint: Current results are bad, very bad.

I'm giving up brushing for lint.

Guys do it all the time. But I wish Mindy McCready hadn’t. So much life to live.

Consider the possibility that federal spending on higher education has backfired. It didn't make it more affordable, but more expensive.

Billions of federal dollars flooding the field took price pressure off of universities. It made it easier to raise tuition; to expand bureaucracy; to grow and multiply programs.

It made everyone borrow more, apply for more aid, or dig deeper to survive without tax-payer help.

The price tag is much steeper. The quality didn't keep pace. We're all poorer for it.

In the 60s, liberals fought the Man.

Today, they tell the people to shut up and submit to the Man.

What's the big fuss about the asteroid strike in Russia? We'll just get the UN to pass a resolution declaring earth an asteroid free zone.

You're running away again....

The so-called "sequester" is a lie invented by the Democrats.
There is no sequester.
What is being called a "sequester" is the Democrats' plan to borrow and additional 7 trillion dollars to pay for their dictatorship instead of borrowing 8.5 trillion dollars over a 10-year period of time.
Again, Obama gives the population an obvious lie.
Does Obama ever open his mouth and not lie?

There are no planned cuts to government spending. None.
Obama is a pathological liar.

And, tell us about those mythical subsidies to oil companies that don't exist.

The problem with that is you've ben on the other end of the stick so many times before, everyone complaining about you that instead of sympathy, the principal feels a since of overjoy. His response,"deal with it crybaby!" Lol!

You want budget cuts.
The sequester's job was to assure Congress pass budget cuts or suffer the sequester's cut.
Obama threatened to veto any attempt of Congress to do neither & avoid any cuts at all.
Something you agree with.
Yet, being such a dumbass, you didn't understand it.

The best way to make people remember obama, is obama continue to take more money from their paycheck, stealing from them and Obama: I Will Veto Attempts To Get Rid Of Automatic Spending Cuts.

The president of the API said there were oil subsidies. Republicans in Congress debated these subsidies.

Just as they will debate the sequester.

There are some morons who seem angry with 18,310 posts and continuously looking for conflict. The battle you are fighting is not with me, it is with yourself.

Like RalDave being challenged in life is inevitable, you being a deranged moron and living on a 'Blue Magnet' reservation or preserve is optional.

You people get dumber every day.

If there is no sequester, what is Congress debating.

If there are no oil subsidies, why did Republicans demand we keep them.

If oil subsidies are 2.4 billion a year & 60,000 Americans are employed by the oil industry, just how much of your salary am I supporting?

I mean, really, I would much rather hand my money to a homeless man than an oilfield geologist who doesn't know how the bitumen from Canada is pumped through pipelines.

Wrong dumbass! When a grand jury issues an indictment and a judge issues an arrest warrant in a case when the suspect has made violent threats sufficient cause has been made to deny that person the right to possess any firearms. In the case of this individual a single shot .22 rifle would be considered an illegal firearm.
You're an idiot!
In most states, not without a conviction.

Due process still applies, despite Obama's desire to be judge, jury, and executioner.

Only a small minority of religious zealots equate the morning after pill with abortion or consider a fertilized egg a person. Hobby Lobby doesn't want to provide its employees with any type of contraception not only morning after pills. If your personal beliefs are against contraception, fine don't use it. But you cannot impose those beliefs on others.
Hobby Lobby and similar organizations are not trying to prevent any of their employees from practicing birth control or receiving abortions. They are not "imposing their beliefs" on anyone. They simply do not want to pay for those services.

An abortion is an abortion, regardless of the method. Abortions are necessary to control the population of habitual breeders.
