Obama is making it hurt. Obama slashed domestic bomb prevention by a whopping 45%. It was $20 million under Bush, now it’s $11 million. I’m all for cutting the budget and stuff, but when you cut this and spend money on crap like cleaning gardens in Belgium, this is beyond stupid. As usual, it’s not the American media reporting on this startling fact, it’s the UK Daily Mail.
Under President George W. Bush, the Department of Homeland Security had $20 million allocated for preventing the use of improvised explosive devices (IEDs) by terrorists working inside the United States. The current White House has cut that funding down to $11 million.
That assessment comes from Robert Liscouski, a former Homeland Security Assistant Secretary for Infrastructure Protection, in the wake of the Boston Marathon bombings on April 15 that killed three Americans and injured at least 173 others.

Is this because of the sequester? If it is, then the Republicans have made the cut to save the rich from paying their fair share.

Obama paid 18% 2012 taxes. He made 18 million off his book and he doesn't call himself a republican. How much is their fair share? Now get to work you lazy liberal freeloader!

Congress is the body required by law to pass a budget annually. Congressional decisions are governed by rules and legislation regarding the federal budget process.

Rob goes from one Topix forum to another all day long and half the night using multiple names, or using IDs of other Topix users he doesn't like to plagiarize, lie, harass, post abusive content and other nonsense. This is what 'Rob' does day-in and day-out. His antics have gotten so bad on a number of forums that TOPIX has had no recourse but shut discussions down and remove them because of the numbers of reports of abuse.

And yes 'Rob' is nothing more than an uneducated window washer. Topix is a playground for people like Rob. Topix gives worthless people like Rob a place they can feel like a genius and important.

First of all the sequester was Obama's idea..both sides brought is that monstrosity. Second, the budget cuts for domestic bombing were not part of the sequester and occurred much earlier. This is Obama's baby and it's his dirty diaper to change.

That accusation is getting tired, crackpipe. You seem to think that half the posters on Topix are posting under multiple names. You really should see your doctor about meds for that paranaoia problem of yours.
Then again, as I've said multiple times before, if you want to know what the progressives are up to, take a good look at what they accuse others of. Greybox much, crackpipe?

oh is that right Mr. Know-it-all.

You apparently didn't get that memo that says CONGRESS is the governmental body that creates a budget and authorizes spending and appropriations, not the President?

Of course you get all your knowledge from Rush and Glenn right?

You've been wearing a $hitty diaper all of your adult life which explains why you would point your little crooked finger at the Prez.

It's all true dip-$hit. Both as to what 'Rob' does all day long and his status as an uneducated window washer (which, to be honest, gives him far too much credit).

You know what your problem is Mr. Know-it-all? Your having to accept the fact that 'Rob' is your Daddy and you're having to follow in his footsteps. That's truly sad isn't it?
