Automatic cuts are getting a big yawn from Washington

Feb 15, 2013 Full story: The Washington Post 79

As deadlines go, the March 1 sequester lacks punch. Nobody's taxes will go up; the U.S. Treasury won't run out of cash.

So what? We went from what you can do for your country to what your country can do for you years ago and now we are finished. It is the severity of the tyranny that has to be negotiated and who gets it the worse when it is here in full fury.

You mean like selling weapons to our enemy and funneling the money to thugs to overthrow a government or invading the wrong country because they threatened his daddy.

Or we could do what makes teabaggers feel good:

As much as $60 billion in U.S. funds has been lost to waste and fraud in Iraq and Afghanistan over the past decade through lax oversight of contractors, poor planning and payoffs to warlords and insurgents, an independent panel investigating U.S. wartime spending estimates.

In its final report to Congress, the Commission on Wartime Contracting said the figure could grow as U.S. support for reconstruction projects and programs wanes, leaving both countries to bear the long-term costs of sustaining the schools, medical clinics, barracks, roads and power plants already built with American tax dollars.

The US flew nearly $12bn in shrink-wrapped $100 bills into Iraq, then distributed the cash with no proper control over who was receiving it and how it was being spent.
The staggering scale of the biggest transfer of cash in the history of the Federal Reserve has been graphically laid bare by a US congressional committee.

In the year after the invasion of Iraq in 2003 nearly 281 million notes, weighing 363 tonnes, were sent from New York to Baghdad for disbursement to Iraqi ministries and US contractors. Using C-130 planes, the deliveries took place once or twice a month with the biggest of $2,401,600,000 on June 22 2004, six days before the handover.

"The numbers are so large that it doesn't seem possible that they're true. Who in their right mind would send 363 tonnes of cash into a war zone?"

Teabaggers.

The Reps are not being blamed for this one - the peoples question is "WHERES OBAMA" and the promise he made the last time. The Dems are sitting on their azz hoping the Reps will lose seats in the House but at the rate the Dems are going the Reps are going to GAIN SEATS in the House and Senate.
People are not stupid and they can see what has happened. When a crisis comes up Obama goes on vacation, campaign trail or just runs and the Dems just sit doing nothing.
Obama is taking a weekend.

Teabaggers have left for 9 days.

After an exhausting session of doing..........Nothing.

How can you say the Congress did nothing when it kept the minorty party from stealing us blind, and bankrupting the country? We are proud of all they have done.

What, no poll from Rassmussen showing Romney's going to win?

Poor Le Dumbo, can't get over losing the last election.

How soon before you start posting polls for 2016?

Neither party ever lets those automatic cuts go through. It's a game, all for show for the people so they never have to cut one thing. The Repubs live and breathe for the defense contractors, for the war profiteers and Fox sells a third major war 24/7. they want never ending wars for never ending war profits for the rich. And does anyone imagine that the Dems would ever let one spending cut on any welfare or old age handout program happen? Yeah right. Neither party is EVER going to end the welfare/warfare state, not ever. Both parties are totally addicted to spending. Nothing will ever change until we have borrowed so much we default on the debt. They are not going to let cuts go through on their precious entitlements and their war spending. Not ever going to happen, never does, never will.

Its already happening. Nothing can be done about it until the politicians change the laws. They can't. So tyranny laws will be their way out. They vote for the legislation and then blame the laws enacted when used. Everyday just with local police I see them work their magic on the internet. Yesterday a pregnant woman on the highway who did not stop her car quick enough due to construction got her due from 6 of them. She earned it. Bwhahahaa....zee ovens zee ovenss bwahhaahaha1
