Our tax dollars for unwanted train fell $33 million short.
Let DOT have carwashes to keep their jobs. Or donate their payola.

Obama now says his sequester idea 'dumb'
Just 1 day earlier described it as catastrophic, with hits on teachers, police, firefighters
Published: 22 hours ago

By Garth Kant

The Obama administration warned us it would be catastrophic. Sequestration would mean the loss of police officers, firefighters, teachers, soldiers, air control towers and shipyards…you name it.

Now that sequestration is here, President Obama says it’s “dumb” but it’s “not going to be an apocalypse.”

Obama and House Speaker John Boehner failed to find an alternative to the sequester during a last-ditch meeting today, so $85 billion in automatic spending cuts are scheduled to begin to kick in at the end of the day.

Obama again blamed Republicans, even though he originated the idea.

“I am not a dictator,” Obama said Friday. He says he can’t lock leaders in a room to make a deal.

“So ultimately if Mitch McConnell or John Boehner say,‘I have to catch a plane,’ I can’t have Secret Service block the doorway,” he said.

“I know that this has been some of the conventional wisdom that’s been floating around Washington that even though most people agree that I’m being reasonable, that most people agree that I’m presenting a fair deal, the fact that they don’t take it means that I should somehow do a Jedi mind-meld and convince them” to agree on a deal, Obama said.

GOP lawmakers cheered Boehner’s refusal to budge on tax increases.

“I think he realized the president of the United States was using him as a tool for his own benefit and was not actually in a partnership with him, and he also realized that we in the House were not happy with what was coming out of those negotiations,” said Rep. Raúl R. Labrador, R-Idaho.“We were pretty blunt with him and the entire leadership team that we have to feel like we have a plan and a vision, and we’re following up on that plan and that vision.”

“The discussion about revenue is over,” Boehner said. The speaker says the House has already voted on two measures to replace the sequester and “shouldn’t have to pass a third bill.”

Boehner urged Obama and Senate Democrats to present a plan to replace the sequester that could pass the Democratic-led Senate.

In his new softer tone on the effects of the sequester, Obama says the nation will survive it, though it would be painful for many people.

Now, even federal employees will begin to feel the pinch. A million, or more, federal workers may be taking unpaid time off. The prospect of sequestration has the government sending furlough notices, effective in April.

An assistant U.S. attorney received a note which read,“This memorandum notifies you that the Department of Justice (DOJ) proposes to furlough you no earlier than 30 days from receipt of this notice.

“We recognize the difficult personal financial implications of any furlough, no matter how limited its length. We will make every effort to keep you informed as additional information regarding agency funding becomes available,” the letter added.

The Social Security Administration sent a notice Thursday to its employees saying it was seeking to “minimize the risk of furloughs,” including limiting future hiring.

One person who’s not worried is New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg. He says the United States could owe “an infinite amount of money” and not default.

The economic storm clouds began gathering well before the sequester.

idiot moron dems...

"“We are spending money we don’t have,” Mr. Bloomberg explained.“It’s not like your household. In your household, people are saying,‘Oh, you can’t spend money you don’t have.’ That is true for your household because nobody is going to lend you an infinite amount of money. When it comes to the United States federal government, people do seem willing to lend us an infinite amount of money.… Our debt is so big and so many people own it that it’s preposterous to think that they would stop selling us more. It’s the old story: If you owe the bank $50,000, you got a problem. If you owe the bank $50 million, they got a problem. And that’s a problem for the lenders. They can’t stop lending us more money.”

two things:

1. under your scenario...you would be the clog in the toilet.

2. a day with me would be a ride in a RR or similar, lunch at the best restaurants, meetings with my contractors and finance guys, then meetings with investors, then a trip to the office, dozens of phone calls, visits to projects I am doing, and then home to look at this. Then dinner, and take in a Laker's game. Then radio, TV, etc.

Money never sleeps bud.

Guru should lose you. Many times his credibility is in question by your ignorant posted confessions and admitting your a food stamp scammer. He is a common sensed man concerned about entitlement thieves that abuse the system and wasting taxpayer monies(Obama). Having you as a ally goes against his and 99.9% of Republican Americans with common sense principals.

I'm not wasting tax money, I use is as it was designed for. I'm not one of Obama's buddies, ripping BILLIONS off of taxpayers, I'm just utilizing some Obama-bucks to enrich my family, instead of letting it go to a drug dealer. You don't like it, huh?

Guru, I'm getting into something new, just for fun. Cutting rock. I ordered a set of "feathers & wedges" from Vermont, and tried cutting my own building bricks out of solid lave rock. Messed up the first couple of boulders a couple of weeks ago, but yesterday me and a thirteen-year-old kid cut ten pretty nice bricks from one boulder. By the time we got halfway done, the kid was cutting a pretty nice block by himself. Each block weighs about thirty lbs. and I'm thinking of what I can do with the blocks. It started out with a backhoe lesson and went from there. Sure is fun teaching kids how to do something without a cell-phone or I-pad in their hands. He was surprised at himself!
