The White House is refusing to confirm whether President Barack Obama followed up on his pledge to take a five percent pay cut due to sequestration last year.

Obama promised last April to take a 5 percent pay cut in "solidarity" with federal employees who were furloughed as a result of the automatic budget cuts, known as the sequester. The cut was meant to equate to the level of spending cuts imposed on nondefense federal agencies.

"The president has decided that to share in the sacrifice being made by public servants across the federal government that are affected by the sequester, he will contribute a portion of his salary back to the Treasury," a White House official said at the time.

According to his tax returns, Obama is still receiving the presidential salary of $400,000 per year

The amount of CO2 in the atmosphere has been increasing.
Where Did All The CO2 Go?

anthropogenic Atmosphere carbon cycle carbon dioxide Climate Change CO2 Global Warming interglacial Resilient Earth sequestration
The subject of human carbon dioxide emissions and their build up in Earth's atmosphere is at the center of the anthropogenic global warming controversy. It cannot be denied that humans produce CO2 in large amounts, both from burning fossil fuels and from land use changes. This has led to much gnashing of teeth and renting of garments by excitable ecological doomsayers, but there is something they do not mention: at the same time humanity is spewing forth carbon, nature is busily sucking up that carbon and storing it away. A new analysis of the carbon cycle has produced an unexpected result—not only is the absorption of carbon continuing unabated it has actually expanded. The latest scientific tally indicates that since 1959, approximately 350 billion tons of carbon have been emitted by humans to the atmosphere, of which about 55% has been reabsorbed by the land and oceans.

That Earth's ecology absorbs CO2 has long been known; it is, after all, plant food. Living organisms in ocean waters and on the land absorb carbon from carbon dioxide and sequester it for periods of time ranging from decades to millions of years. The various pathways of this absorption are called sinks. If all the sources of carbon into the environment are matched by the carbon sinks removing carbon then the carbon cycle would be perfectly balanced. But contrary to statements by unscientific simpletons, nature is never in a static balance—it is always in a constant state of tension, of flux, as various processes contend.

Knowing that the sinks are not static has caused many climate change alarmists to issue dire warnings that the sinks would somehow fill up and stop absorbing mankind's carbon effluent. This prediction is interesting, since science does not even know all the mechanisms behind carbon absorption. In fact, for years researchers have been working to identify what has been labeled the “missing sink.” Quoting from chapter 7 of The Resilient Earth:

For more than three decades, the attention of biologists and ecologists studying the global carbon cycle has focused on an apparent imbalance in the carbon budget. The so-called “missing sink” is a result of the following equation:

Atmospheric CO2 Increase = Human Emissions + Land Use – Ocean Uptake
This equation is simple enough: the amount of carbon produced by humans plus the carbon produced by other living things, less the amount absorbed by the oceans, must end up as atmospheric CO2. But, if actual numbers are used, the equation does not balance.

The average annual emissions of 8.5 Gt during the 1990s, 6.3 Gt from fossil fuels and 2.2 Gt from land use, are greater than the sum of the annual buildup of carbon in the atmosphere (3.2 Gt) and the annual uptake by the oceans (2.4 Gt). Here, land use includes carbon from decaying dead vegetation, soil organic matter, and wood products less the uptake by regrowing ecosystems. An additional sink of 2.9 Gt is required to balance the carbon budget. Though this is a small amount, over time, it adds up, 115 Gt of missing carbon over the period 1850-2000.

Bush's Tactic of Refusing Laws Is Probed

In a report to be issued today, the ABA task force said that Bush has lodged more challenges to provisions of laws than all previous presidents combined.

The panel members described the development as a serious threat to the Constitution's system of checks and balances, and they urged Congress to pass legislation permitting court review of such statements.

"The president is indicating that he will not either enforce part or the entirety of congressional bills," said ABA president Michael S. Greco, a Massachusetts attorney. "We will be close to a constitutional crisis if this issue, the president's use of signing statements, is left unchecked."

If I asked de gubbyMint to show me the documents on Saddam's weapons program......

this would happen....

'One request exposed in the Archive's 2003 Audit as one of the oldest in the federal government was an October 1989 request to the CIA submitted by Lancaster Pennsylvania's Intelligencer Journal. The CIA responded to the request almost fifteen years later in August 2004, saying the agency had not found any documents and was closing the request.'

getting GubbyMint documents is easy....

'The single oldest request in 2003 was a 1987 letter from San Francisco Chronicle reporter Seth Rosenfeld on FBI activities in Berkeley, California, was not provided by the FBI in their 2005 list of oldest pending requests, indicating that the FBI now considers this request closed. According to Mr. Rosenfeld, the November 1987 request, which clarified an earlier 1981 FOIA request he submitted to the FBI, has not yet completely been fulfilled in 2006.'

They asked for the documents in 1989....and we are still waiting...

'Still pending at the Central Intelligence Agency two years after it was listed in the Archive's 2003 Ten Oldest FOIA Requests list, this request was filed by The Post Standard newspaper, based in Syracuse, N.Y., and asked for records pertaining to the bombing of Pan American Flight 103 and terrorist threats at Frankfurt Airport.'
