America’s Fiscal Crisis:“Sequester Facts” on US Policy Manipulations You Should Know
Right now, the American people are like frogs in warm sequester water. For some, inundated with all the corporate media talk about out-of-control spending, the cuts to the deficit feel good right now. But as the sequester takes hold and federal spending is pulled from the economy, those views are likely to change.

US elected officials seem to be focused primarily on making sure the other party is to blame, when in fact both are to blame, and on measuring the political fallout. In many ways, this is part of the battle to determine which arm of the corporate duopoly will have a majority in Congress after the 2014 year elections.

But for the rest of us, a large spending cutback by government in the midst of a jobs crisis and shrinking GDP is exactly the wrong policy for the economy. The US economy is likely to find itself in a recession, shedding more jobs in 2013 with an increased deficit to GDP level in part because of the sequester, but also because the federal government was already in austerity, shrinking at a very fast rate (despite what the corporate media, pundits and politicians say). Thus the road to a double-dip recession has sped up due to the sequestration. Here are some facts you should know.

In fact, Zero Hedge published a disconcerting list of twelve recent events that show the next economic collapse may almost be upon us. And, they point out that the sequester will make things worse. Less money in the economy when big business is not spending is a sure sign of economic disaster, potentially even deflation which could lead to worse than a recession

it makes me sad that the only representative concerned about drone strikes on our own people on our own soil is cast as "trying to be relevant"...

He's working for Boca Liquor Distribution now, and he's been at headquarters trying to keep up with the huge sales volume.

Well, let's just assume you would be saying something altogether different if a Republican president and his administration wanted to drop drones on Americans.
You'd be building a bomb shelter.
The original Carol Orlando is married to a guy who flies radio controlled aircraft nearly every weekend and belongs to one of the region's and by proxy the nation's top RCA clubs. The original Carol Orlando would be treading on thin ice with hubby for posting this sort of bullshit.

Whatever happened to the original Carol? www.rcacf.com

Of course she did; O'Mara knew that it was not a stand your ground case and that the judge would not throw it out. That's how it goes.
Now, they go to trial.

I don't know. According to the cockpit recording it was a meter long. 3 feet. That is about the size of some hobbyist's aircraft.

Thanks for proving that your the dimwit that we knew you to be. IDIOT
If Congress allows sequestration cuts to take effect, more than 170 million Americans could lose their jobs, according to Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.).
“If sequestration takes place, that’s going to be a great setback. We don’t need to be having something like sequestration that’s going to cause these job losses — over 170 million jobs that could be lost,” Waters said.
There’s just one problem with her estimation — and it’s a big one. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, there are only 134 million people working in the United States. So by Waters’ estimation, the sequester cuts would be so apocalyptic that nearly 40 million people who don’t have jobs would become even more unemployed.

I sometimes wonder why SNL and the Late Night Shows don't do skits about the Maxine Waters.

The sequester will cut $85 billion in government spending from March 1 to September 30. It is a 5% cut for most federal spending, but because the fiscal year began on October 1, 2012, five months have already passed and thus the one year cut is jammed into 7 months. Some agencies, like those providing unemployment benefits have been unable to prepare so there are likely to be 10% or so cuts in checks to the unemployed. Other agencies have been able to prepare somewhat by not filling vacancies and taking other budgetary actions since last October. And others, which give out grants for research, will be giving out fewer funds in grants. How the sequester will impact agencies will vary from program to program.

It will also vary from state to state. States like, Virginia, New Mexico, Alabama and South Carolina, with high federal spending will face more severe cutbacks, while states like, New York, Ohio, Illinois and Oregon, with less federal spending will face less. But there will be budgetary pain all across the nationin health care, housing, education, security and immigration, among others.

Hello, Stupid.
For the 3rd time, the orders which sent the Japanese-Americans to internment came from the General DeWitt on May 3rd, 1942.
There is NOTHING in Roosevelt's two executive orders which parallel DeWitt's. So you're busted.
You've got nothing, but lack of facts has never stopped a GOP fatmouth from going BAH HAH HAH HAH and proclaiming himself the "victor".
Face it, you GOP clowns are woefully ignorant on matters of history.
You're such a moron, you didn't even know "the shot heard round the world" is a reference to the battle of Lexington which is where the American Revolution began.
Fckn dufus.
You've been caught with your pants down and you have nothing to show us. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Right. The entire Japanese American internment mistake was caused by one errant racist General that FDR never noticed was trashing American citizens' rights. And, all the while, the Citizen Police Force (also created by FDR) that ran those racist camps for the racist General was never admonished nor even noticed by FDR.

Hee, Hee.
