Blame the democrats who refuse to sit down and do real cutting of wasteful spending in the government, Now with sequestration a reality, and unless all those elected politicians in Washington do there job, The military will take the blunt of the cuts while the President and the Democrats continue the increases in the social spending.

"Since this is an era when many people are concerned about “fairness” and “social justice,” what is your “fair share” of what someone else has worked for?" Thomas Sowell

"Repeal that [welfare] law, and you will soon see a change in their manners.... Six days shalt thou labor, though one of the old commandments long treated as out of date, will again be looked upon as a respectable precept; industry will increase, and with it plenty among the lower people; their circumstances will mend, and more will be done for their happiness by inuring them to provide for themselves, than could be done by dividing all your estates among them." Ben Franklin

"We need to stop worrying about the rights of the individual and start worrying about what is best for society." Hillary Clinton

"We're going to take things away from you on behalf of the common good." Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton

"My friends, we live in the greatest nation in the history of the world. I hope you'll join with me, as we try to change it." Barack Obama

. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them; and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work, because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that is the beginning of the end of any nation.

When the government cuts money from budgets, some projects and programs will be cut, and along those lines, there will be people employed at Holloman, White Sands Missile Range, Fort Bliss who will be unemployed because the democrats cannot sit down and work out a real budget that does not increase year after year.

Remember Obama asked for the Sequestation, and he got what he wanted.

I couldn't give a rat's patoot if they turned Holloman into 6 flags.

Send em all to Kirtland, send to to the North Pole for all I care.

The town is looking for "economic development? Well there you go. Think of the tourism you money robbing cheapskate New Mexicans will reap!?

We'll call it "6 Flags over Alamo-GhostTown".

New Mexicans ain't gots no money to spend (except for Dominos Trash Can Pizzas, and Taco Bell, but the Texans will come, and put every other cesspool town in NM out of business.

How's that for "economic development? Contact Obama Bin Lyin, he'll help with a 6 Billion dollar federal donation.

It's a win-win situation, this town will get rid of all the leeches, living off the gubmint dime
