The republican taliban has managed to successfully force the Sequester into effect, which is a big sh1t sandwich served up to everybody. Of course they already own the nations one and only credit downgrade and are likely to repeat that crazy stunt.

But the next thing they will do is force a shutdown of the federal government.

A shutdown of the federal government would be a good thing. Look at the millions of dollars that would no be wasted. It would allow for reduced taxes on working Americans, which will allow for new job. A shutdown of the federal government would do great things for the economy.

Why do you keep calling them the republican taliban? The taliban is a terriorist group, much like oDumbo and Peloski. The Republicas are the only ones preventing the taliban takeover of America.

Our federal budget is roughly 4 Trillion dollars. The amount of money we are discussing with this sequester bs is roughly 88 billion dollars.

Let's do some simple math here to understand how nothing this all really is.

4,000,000,000,000
88,000,000,000

which is the same thing as $4000.00 to $88.00

which is the same thing as $400.00 to $8.80

which is the same thing as $100.00 to $2.20

So to put it in everyday life, it is the exact same thing as if you are at the grocery store and you have $100.00 of groceries currently in your shopping cart, and you discovered you only have $97.80 in your wallet. Very close, but simply not enough and certainly no crisis. You know you have plenty in the cart to feed your family. So you are simply looking in your cart to put back on the shelf something that costs only $2.20 and is really not needed anyway, or something you can do without until later.

It is not a big deal. That is not a crisis. That is a big yawner. It is meaningless. It also a good analogy to say that Congress and the Prez (they are both being ridiculous in this) are the same as being your little 4 yr old next to you tugging on you whining about not wanting to put back and not purchase the $2.20 item, but you are the grown up and the responsible adult and know that you need to put that item back because you cannot pay for it.

PS I am a registered Democrat and voted the President twice. I left the GOP two years ago and voted for Obama in 2008 still a registered Republican. My first vote was for Ronald Reagan. Reagan was the best President in my life time and still is in my book.

The GOP has nobody on the horizon remotely close to Reagan. The GOP is in shambles. Obama is leading us just fine but this little sequester bs is really just a bunch of nonsense and nothing more than political posturing by both sides. It's boring, a non-event, and nauseating all at the same time.

Why is the republican taliban all gaga about Ronald Reagan? I still don't know what now historical presidential accomplishment he is known for. He raised federal taxes more times and more often than any modern day POTUS. Thats about it.

He and his damned democruds exempted themselves from Obamacare and they're also exempting their damned salaries and benefits from their damned sequester cuts. Anybody still supporting any of them is just as fking evil as they are.

Obama came up with the sequester idea. Now he's blaming it on the Republicans. The best thing that could happen is a government shutdown. For the next 3.5 years.

They turned to [White House national economic council director Gene] Sperling for details about a compulsory trigger if they didn’t cut spending or raise taxes in an amount at least equivalent to the debt ceiling increase.

“A trigger would lock in our commitment,” Sperling explained.“Even though we disagree on the composition of how to get to the cuts, it would lock us in. The form of the automatic sequester would punish both sides. We’d have to September to avert any sequester”— a legal obligation to make spending cuts.

“Then we could use a medium or big deal to force tax reform,” Obama said optimistically.

“If this is a trigger for tax reform,”[House speaker John] Boehner said,“this could be worth discussing. But as a budget tool, it’s too complicated. I’m very nervous about this.”

“This would be an enforcement mechanism,” Obama said.

Short version:The White House proposed the idea of a compulsory trigger, with Sperling calling it an “automatic sequester,” though initially it was to include tax revenue, not just spending cuts. Boehner was “nervous” about using it as a budget tool.

Barack Hussein Obama did this shit, and if you'd spit his penis out long enough to listen to him, LBT, it was well publicized at the time.

Fort Bragg , North Carolina , Obama Stops Soldier From Speaking
Something you'll want to be aware of:
Sent by Retired Vice Admiral Bob Scarborough, of Arlington , VA.
"I wanted to give you all some disturbing information on our wonderful president. I work with the Catch-A-Dream Foundation, which provides hunting and fishing trips to children with life-threatening illnesses. This past weekend we had our annual banquet/fundraiser event in Starkville. As a part of our program, we had scheduled Sgt. 1st Class Greg Stube to come; he's a highly decorated U.S. Army Green Beret and inspirational speaker who was severely injured while deployed overseas and didn't have much of a chance for survival. Greg is stationed at Ft. Bragg, NC. and received permission from his commanding officer to come speak at our function. Everything was on go until Obama made a policy that No U.S. Serviceman Can Speak At Any Faith-Based Public Events Anymore. Needless to say, Greg had to cancel his speaking event with us. Didn't know if anyone else was aware of this new policy. You're just starting to see the Obama-nation . This is just how the Nazis did it in the 1930's -- slowly, one step at a time .
This should be forwarded to everyone regardless of party affiliation! We have lost 50% of our freedom of speech in the last 2 years.

A disturbing email talks about how President Barack Obama issued a policy stating that members of the military cannot speak at any public faith-based event. So Sgt. 1st Class Greg Stube, a Green Beret who was injured in Afghanistan, was canceled as speaker at the Catch-A-Dream Foundation's annual fundraiser. Is this true?

No, but this viral email has been spreading around the Internet since 2009.

The fact-finding groups FactCheck.org , Snopes.com and Truthorfiction.com , as well as David Emery, who researches rumors for the urban legends section of the information website About.com , looked into the allegation and found it to be false.

The Catch-A-Dream event, however, did occur in May 2009, and Stube is a real veteran who did verbally commit to speak there.

But Obama did not institute a new policy in 2009 forbidding service members from participating in faith-based events and did not personally scrub the appearance, as the email asserts.

In fact, when he became president in January 2009, Obama quickly adopted the faith-based initiative put into place by President George W. Bush, media reports show.

U.S. Army Regulation 360-1 and DOD 5500.7-R contain references to a longstanding policy that prohibits DOD employees from "officially endorsing or appearing to endorse membership drives or fundraising activities for non-federal entities."
The prohibition covers all fundraising events, whether faith-based or not.

Truthorfiction.com found these policies dating back as far as 1997.
