Worst Sequestration Cut

AS we all know, Dear Leader is out campaigning about the Armageddon that will come about on March first.

We all know the local police, firefighters, school teachers etc will all lose their jobs, but we just learned the worst cut of all.

The NATIONAL DRUG INTELLIGENCE CENTER will lose 2 million of its 20 million dollar budget. TEN PERCENT! The administration is trotting out everybody but Joe the Plumber to prevent it.

The problem is, this agency DOES NOT EXIST!!!!! Never has.

An imaginary agency will lose real money? Only in Obamaland.

I think the media is doing a fine job of creating panic, which in itself will affect the economy as Americans snap shut their wallets. Their inflated use of adjectives ("crisis", "fiscal cliff", "recession" etc.) needs to be curtailed.

I have seen these cuts occur before. I guess we just have to deal with it. As far as imaginary agencies, I would think that someone from the other side of the aisle would loudly and immediately speak out to the media if that were the case.

I say let the sequestration happen. We're hearing about how horrible things will be in we cut 2% from our spending increase.

I say let's see if our government shuts down. Personally, I think that might be a good thing. Send Ostupid to Chicago, the 4th worst city in America since his buddy took over.

At least it's beginning to emerge who's responsible for this.

On top of the fact he's playing the victim with this.

And all this could have been avoided if the Senate had voted on the budget that the House passed. Where was Obama insisting on an up or down vote on the Budget??? Guess there was not enough dead bodies for him to stand on when it comes to saving money.

Sadly, Ostupid has only one agenda, and that is to destroy the Republican party. He doesn't care how he does it, even to the point of a major economic crisis.

He knows he has his minions in the media (Except FOX of course) will blame the Republicans for everything that goes wrong.

He wants a Democrat House and Senate in his last two years so he can literally "transform" this country into his version of European Socialism.

And the only way he can accomplish this is to let the country go into another recession and high unemployment. We know the Republicans will get all the blame.

His lap dog media will see to it.

More will lose their jobs, unemployment will be extended, food stamps will be expanded, more people will stand in line for free telephones, and although some here may complain about it, Ostupid knows that's all they will do, because he has their support.

The cynicism of the move is breathtaking, even for this cynical administration. The “current fiscal climate” is one in which we are spending more than a trillion dollars per year than we take in. The 2009 stimulus spending is locked in. The sequestration threatens just $22 billion this year — and the president gets to choose where to cut. If the sky falls, it’s being brought down on our heads by this unethical rogue president.

So these releases are his choice. And he’s choosing them for pure racial politics and demagoguery. He’ll blame it all on Republicans, while shoring himself up with the amnesty chorus.

More: The president is also threatening to drop our border guard. In a rational age, these acts would be impeachable. Not too many years ago Californians recalled a governor for offering drivers licences to illegal aliens, and here we have a president flagrantly violating his oath to defend the nation.

He has ordered the release of illegals from jails under the guise of the cuts even before they go into effect.

The Office of the PRESIDENT has the authority to determine what gets cut and what does not. He has the authority to tell the Pentagon to cut conferences, and take that money and apply it to personnel. He refuses.

He WANTS this to happen. Because he knows his supporters like Willo and Shirley, and Lefty, and Slush will naturally blame the republicans.

Let's face it. None of these people would DARE criticize Dear Leader.

No, if he DOES get his way, a certain segment of our society will be punished. Those who make too much money.
