America's Military Best- GROUNDED-Sequestration

A performance this weekend by the Navy and Marine Corps’ Blue Angels near Key West, Fla., will also be their last for some time. The Army’s parachute demonstration team, the Golden Knights, is also suspending performances.

The failure of Congress to avoid the automatic spending cuts under what is known as sequestration is being felt in many ways, including the cancellation of White House tours and the loss of some 70,000 slots in Head Start early education programs. Along with less visible cuts, the Defense Department has suspended operation of the demonstration teams starting April 1.

(The Navy is hedging its bets, having simply announced its intent to cancel performances in April while waiting to see if financing problems are resolved, said Cmdr. Kevin Stephens, a Navy spokesman.“We want these cuts to be implemented at the last possible moment so they can be reversed where possible,” he said.)

Under sequestration, the Air Force must reduce flying hours by 18 percent, or about 203,000 hours, said Wendy S. Varhegyi, a spokeswoman; the decision to ground air show participation allows the Air Force “to redistribute their flying hours to support overseas contingency operations and pre-deployment readiness training.” It will also save some of the $9.75 million annual Thunderbirds budget.

Oh no! Not the Blue Angels air shows. What public displays will they target next? The horror, the horror.......

Sequestration equals no real effect.

I don't think recruiting is much of an issue. UNEMPLOYMENT is a true issue.

Why yes, our military advantage will surely be shaken to it's core by such a loss. We had best capitulate to Kim Jong Un right now. Just think, they can use the $9.75 mil to buy more bullets and tanks for Big Sisters new army.

Of course, I would be remiss if I failed to mention the fact that cut and paste posts, with no reference to the source, tend to further damage what little credibility the poster may have had and are to be taken for what they are, plagiarism.

The left is the group that said the sequester would have immediate and "dire" effect. I think they should be the ones to point out the effects.
