If the first thing cut was all the politicians salaries and benefits there would be no sequester.

Very good point indeed! Congress raised their salaries January rather then take a modest decrease as an example for all of we Americans. You may as well except the fact that this country WILL not be able to keep spending in the future and no party has done this since Clinton. romney wanted a 2 trillion dollar increase in the deficit so if he were there we would be running trillion dollar deficits but they would be for republican causes so the only ones worried would be all of we non-republicans. Truth is that 32 years ago Reagan should have been the example and start paying off the debt not add 300 billion to it during his time. This should be non-political but it is'nt.

“Sequester”
A curtailment of security for the American people is said to be a result of sequester and a release of prisoners is underway by DHS (Department of Homeland Security). With the apparent critical need for funds to allow all day-to-day operations to continue, it’s amazing that DHS has found it of greater importance to purchase 1.6 Billion rounds of ammunition, 2,700 Military style Armored Vehicles,$50 Million for TSA Uniforms, Drones,… It would appear the problems being experienced are self-inflicted/poor management of funds rather than anything related to sequester.
The main problem with military spending is that there is very little oversight on where the money goes, hence stealing, overpricing terribly, and offshore bank accounts full of Americans tax money used very improperly. I want accountability on where this money is going and what are we buying. Is such plane or boat necessary? Or is it built with theft and corruption from the beginning? The military Needs some cut-backs and they are going to get it!

Sequeator is good all the way around. We have more than enough military.hr justice dept. has more than it should to spy on the average American I can tell you by first hand experience how mean spirited these DEA and FBI azzholes conduct their activity. It has decreased slightly since that circus freak, draft dodging punk bush poured out of Americas bladder but I can tell you I am working on one hell of a civil rights violation perpetrated by the DEA on myself. I have several auto,truck, licence plates that have taken down on these MF's and have turned them over to some mean drug dealing organizations. If these tough guy criminal mind type agents are looking for a fight I'll damn sure give them one! You take a man or woman who has neever had power over another human being in their life and watch how abusivee they can become. All this personal assaults on my character were based on rumors and false accusations. I'm praying God will give the victory to me and these SOB's will be taught a hard lesson. They ride around in different vhicles and think they are on some God given mission.

In 4 years you'll have some other president to beef about. The trouble with this country is the total lack of compromise on the part of democrats and republicans. There are 33% of we voters who are neither dems or repubs and we have to endure the lessor of the two evils. In my opinion the lessor of the 2 were republicans. After 8 years of bush democrats have become the lesssor of the two evils. Clinton had the economy in good shape and had budget surpluses. Obama does have compassion on those middle class and poor.

Obama is screwing the middle class like no other president before. Everything he is doing is making them poor.
You are a clueless airhead.

Man you gotta love that president. He is there for 4 more years and there is'nt anything you can do about it. Now you are probably one of those who idolize the rich, they are going to be MADE to pay up. Military slashed to a moderate size and f-up justice department cut-back. Sequeator is great.

Whether you like it or not the military WILL be cut-back. There are those in this country who would spend 90% of our tax money on the military, start wars with several countries at one time, and just like the Old Roman empire exhaust itself trying to conquer the whole world. Now thankfully these people are in the minority so sound thinking will prevail. Those who went to Iraq did it for personal financial reasons. That country did not attack us. Those who enlisted got big sign-on bonuses and dam sure better monthly salaries than those who got drafted in Vietnam into another needless war. Now the world understands how a great strong civilization like America, Rome, The Greek empire etc. start falling down. There is absolutely NO comparison between why we got involved in World War 11 and the fiasco called Iraq. Now all you 20 to 57 approx. year olds will not get the great Social Security benefits like myself and millions of others because you supported bush and a war that spent all your future Social Security. Hell blame yourself not folks like me who knew it was a con ob from the get go. Better eart right and keep yourselves in shape cause you all are going to have to work till you drop with no monthly social security checks.

If you wish to be stuck in a loop, you have that right and as I stated before, go back and read our past exchange on this subject – I have no desire to constantly repeat myself to you. I and the majority on this site are interested in moving forward and not stuck in a deep dark pit as you are.
You republicans are in such denial. When you are confronted with the truth you like to brush the person off and stand up for a real live human REPTILE like bush and cheney. I have never heard any hardcore republican apologize for the grand criminal behavior perpetrated on the American public for 8 cruel evil years. Now 33% of you who vote republican will never apologize nor repent of your denial. Worse than alcoholics or crack addicts! You one third of the voting population wish to move forward and expect all of we non -republicans to forget these human monsters and what they have permenately done to our great country. NO MORE republicans!

Yes are'nt you happy we have a good president for the next 4 years. Now the closest thing to it would be 1 good glass of red wine, Colorado medical weed( easy to get here in Oklahoma) 2-10 mgs percocets, and finally a good mussel relaxer. And then sit back and see how much Obama can soak the wealthy,cut the military, raise social security payments to all of we seniors who paid it in over the past 50 years. Oh yes My God let me get off this boring whinning republican forum and get after it!
