WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—The spending cuts mandated by the sequester may hamper the United States’s ability to invade countries for absolutely no reason, a Pentagon spokesman warned today.
The Pentagon made this gloomy assessment amid widespread fears that the nation’s ability to wage totally optional wars based on bogus pretexts may be in peril.
“Historically, the United States has stood ready and able to throw billions of dollars at a military campaign with no clear rationale or well-defined objective,” said spokesman Harland Dorrinson.“Our capacity to wage war willy-nilly is now in jeopardy.”
In the past, Mr. Dorrinson said, the Pentagon has had the resources to fight three meaningless and completely random wars at any given time,“but now in our planning meetings we are cutting that number back to two.”
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R—S.C.) agreed about the catastrophic effects of the Pentagon cuts, telling reporters,“The ability of the United States to project its military power in an arbitrary and totally capricious way must never be compromised.”
The cuts are already being felt in a tangible way at the Pentagon, which today cancelled an order for a nine-thousand-dollar pen.

SCHEMES OF THE EVIL
Every citizen is given a number (the red number on the Birth Certificate) and each live birth is valued at from 650,000 to 750,000 Federal Reserve dollars in collateral from the Fed.
Since the early 1960s, State governments have issued Birth Certificates to "persons" with legal fictional names using "ALL CAPS" names. This is not a lawful record of your physical birth, but rather the acknowledgement of the "birth" of the juristic, all-caps name. It may appear to be your true name, but since no proper name is ever written in all caps (either lawfully or grammatically) it does not identify who you are. The Birth Certificate is the government's self-created document of title for its new property -- you and me! In a way, it makes us a kind of corporation whose company name is the same as our real name, but written in ALL CAPS. This "corporation" then generates taxes and wealth over its lifetime and in this way repays the collateral that Uncle Sam borrowed from the Federal Reserve.
Remember that "Bond" thing printed on the bottom of the certificate?
Bond. I a: A usually formal written agreement by which a person undertakes to perform a certain act (as fulfill the obligations of a contract).. with the condition that failure to perform or abstain will obligate the person .. to pay a sum of money or will result in the forfeiture of money put up by the person or surety. lb: One who acts as a surety. 2: An interest-bearing document giving evidence of a debt issued by a government body or corporation that is sometimes secured by a lien on property and is often designed to take care of a particular financial need.-- Ibid.-- Merriam-Webster Dictionary of Law (1996).
Banknote. A kind of negotiable instrument, a promissory note made by a bank payable to the bearer on demand, used as money, and in many jurisdictions is legal tender. Along with coins, banknotes make up the cash or bearer forms of all modern money.
Birth certificates are a form of securities called "warehouse receipts." The items included on a warehouse receipt, as descried at Â§7-202 of the Uniform Commercial Code, the law which governs commercial paper and transactions, which parallel a birth certificate are:
the location of the warehouse where the goods are stored...(residence)
the date of issue of the receipt.....("Date issued")
the consecutive number of the receipt...(found on back or front of the certificate, usually in red numbers)
a description of the goods or of the packages containing them...(name, sex, date of birth, etc.)
the signature of the warehouseman, which may be made by his authorized agent...(municipal clerk or state registrar's signature)
Birth certificates now appear to at least qualify as "warehouse receipts" under the Uniform Commercial Code. Black's Law Dictionary, 7th ed. defines:
Warehouse Receipt. "...A warehouse receipt, which is considered a document of title, may be a negotiable instrument and is often used for financing with inventory as security."

It is not difficult to see that a state-created Birth Certificate, with an ALL CAPS name is a document evidencing debt the moment it is issued.
Once a state has registered a birth document with the U.S. Department of Commerce, the Department notifies the Treasury Department, which takes out a loan from the Federal Reserve. The Treasury uses the loan to purchase a bond (the Fed holds a purchase money security interest in the bond) from the Department of Commerce, which invests the sale proceeds in the stock or bond market. The Treasury Department then issues Treasury securities in the form of Treasury Bonds, Notes, and Bills using the bonds as surety for the new securities.
This cycle is based on the future tax revenues of the legal person whose name appears on the Birth Certificate. This also means that the bankrupt, corporate U.S. can guarantee to the purchasers of their securities the lifetime labor and tax revenues of every citizen of the United States/American with a Birth Certificate as collateral for payment. This device is initiated simply by converting the lawful, true name of the child into a legal, juristic name of a person.
'Legally', you are considered to be a slave or indentured servant to the various Federal, State and local governments via your STATE-issued and STATE-created Birth Certificate in the name of your all-caps person. Birth Certificates are issued so that the issuer can claim exclusive title to the legal person created thereby.

The final Gallup poll before the election had Obama leading 49% to 46%. Romney had a slight lead until Christie kissed Obama in public.

The sequester did not prevent Obama from pissing away $250 million in aid to the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt.

that's the same amount Israel is complaining about losing out of the $3 BILLION we give them every year.

Ronald Reagan was “The Great Communicator.” So then, pray tell, what does that make John Boehner?
....Boehner, along with McConnell, Reid, and Pelosi, met with Obama this past Friday afternoon, ostensibly to discuss the sequester, but in actuality a staged event to give the White House additional talking points. Immediately after, Boehner met with David Gregory for an exclusive interview, the only one that he gave for the all-important weekend news cycle..
So, why, please tell me, why NBC? What genius decided that was the BEST forum.(Possibly the Speaker’s media guru is, like someone formerly with the Romney campaign, one who believes that the media isn’t really biased?) The entire network is completely in the tank for the Obama administration. If they wanted to avoid FOX ( and the stigma of seeming to seek a “safe haven,”) CBS or ABC would have been far better choices. Both are more balanced than NBC, and have actually challenged the administration on some issues. As just one option, ABC’s Rick Klein would have been an excellent choice.
Boehner is clearly not comfortable in this element ( possibly because he can’t smoke on camera?) Gregory dominated him, interrupting often, at one point telling Boehner,“Mr. Speaker, that’s not just true.” Gregory ( though admittedly it is hard to fathom) actually came across as the one with far more gravitas. Boehner diminishes the position, the authority, of the Speaker. Unlike Reagan, Boehner unfortunately does come across as simple, and worse, he is most definitely NOT likable.
So why then does he take to the airways?
Boehner banally recited the same talking points, almost ad nauseum.“The House has twice acted, it’s time for the Senate to act. Washington doesn’t have a revenue problem, we have a spending problem.” Yada, yada, yada…..
The Speaker is known for his one minute ( or less ) press conferences. That is probably the extent of his ability to communicate. Here, given 15 minutes to reach the American people, he ceded control to Gregory, and was completely unable to offer any cogent explanation of the Republican philosophy of conservative governance.
and i don't find it ironic at all that a complete idiot is in charge of a Republican House in 2013.
which has to beg the question...why is the Tea Party mad at John? i'd think they'd embrace one of their own.

Why is that Realtime has to be told these kinds of things?
Funny thing that a lot of overweight people never get diabetes and others only 10 or 15 pounds overweight have to live with it, myself included.
I have never been an overweight person my entire life. After my pregnancy, it took about three years to lose the weight I had put on but that was the only time I ever had a "weight problem".

If you find out your kid has been cheating do you call the teacher and tell him to quit catching your kid or do you tell your kid to quit cheating?

The Constitution, Christie, CPAC and Cantor’s GOP Civil War
Or, the courage of ruling class Republican cowards vs tea partiers and a diversity-challenged conservative conference.

Gov. Rick Scott came into office on a conservative wave, promising to change Tallahassee, fight President Barack Obama's health care overhaul and make Florida as business friendly as he could.
He shunned the press, announced his first budget at a tea party rally in a Central Florida church and entered his first legislative session like the powerful CEO he was before spending more than $70 million of his own money to win office in 2010.
What a difference two years can make.
Scott is preparing to give his third State of the State address Tuesday, and while the major theme — jobs — will still be the same, Scott has undergone a transformation. He's cozying up to teachers instead of antagonizing them. He's learned the art of compromise with the Legislature. He's even cooperating with the federal government to put the president's health care plan into place.
"He's really the Benedict Arnold of the tea party/patriot movement in Florida. Most conservatives feel betrayed by him and members have been calling me and saying they want him fired," said Everett Wilkinson of the South Florida Tea Party, who once called Scott a rock star. "He's flip-flopped on such major areas. It shows how a man can be corrupted with D.C. and Tallahassee."
you wingnuts sure know how to pick them.

The entire week after the hurricane, Obama took front and center stage looking very presidential. Romney virtually disappeared from view during that same week. Right before the election.
Why I say Obama is the luckiest man alive.
Didn't help that Christie kissed him either.

Obama is the worst economic President ever. No President since Roosevelt has presided over such a dismal growth and unemployment rate. 2M+ jobs lost and this man is preaching gun control and immigration. It is obvious this man doesn't give a crap about the economy.
Now the sequester comes along although both sides knew about it over a year ago and we have another crisis. And both sides are to blame for any outcomes not positive although the media will make sure the spin is against the conservatives.
Both parties represent the special interests, getting fat off of perks and becoming millionaires many times over while in office. And we foolish Americans keep electing them. We have created this situation.
You may say Obama isn't like that. Actions speak louder than words and Obama's actions are every bit special interest and letting the rich court him. He talks a good game and may of you have bought this crap. I can appreciate voting for "anyone other than Bush" in 2008. What I can't understand is how this failure got re-elected.
Shame on us for we deserve the hate our children and grandchildren will have for us for our poor stewardship.
