Well it appears that the automatic "budget cuts" that Obama sought to implement as a threat to both parties if they could not come up with a budget during the unconstitutional "Super Committee" is upon us and Obama has used every tactic from blaming the republicans to placing local law enforcement people behind him as a back drop to show who is going to be put at risk for losing their jobs if this sequester HE came up with goes through, lets just forget for a moment that those same local law enforcement officers are paid with local taxes not federal taxes.

The Sequester is NOT a cut in spending at all. Its a cut in the INCREASE in the rate of spending. Debt will still rise, and spending will still increase, just not as much. Think of it as a cut in bonus spending by those who spend way too much money as it is. Both political parties are guilty of over spending. Whether its the Democrat sacred cow of domestic welfare spending or if its the Republican sacred cow of global military industrial complex spending, Wasteful spending is to be had across all budgets within the federal government. President Obama is seeking to use any means possible now to scare the people into demanding that their representatives head off this Sequester when there is no fear to be had. His tactics mirror that of threatening not to be able to pay the soldiers and not pay the receipients of Social Security when goating congress into raising the "Debt Ceiling".

This is Deplorable behavior by our POTUS and the Establishment on both sides along with the media are all too happy to blow this out of proportion to be able to keep pace with their wreckless deficit spending.

Thank God we have Senator Rand Paul who is a sane voice in DC when it comes to foreign policy, fiscal policy, domestic policy, and constitutional adherence. If Senator Rand Paul can return 600,000 dollars to the Treasury out of his budget alone, then why can't the rest of congress and our POTUS come to terms with the need to seek out and audit EVERYTHING to find waste and stop spending so much money?

Well Its March 1st and I survived the apocolypse known as the Sequestor.. The media once again will pretend that they had no hand in spreading around the fear and hysteria caused by Obama. I guess we will have to recover the 170 million jobs that Maxine Waters says we will lose and maybe King Obama will see about that by visiting the rest of the 57 states.

A chance??? He has had an entire term and he did nothing but post record deficit spending levels, more unconstitutional undeclared wars and constitutional raping executive orders.. You have got to be outside your mind if you think that Obama hasn't had his chance.. He had 2 whole years of complete control of both houses of congress to make good on any of his campaign promises and he failed.
