Except for the military, federal employees are nothing more than bloodsucking ticks on the nations economy.
It looks to me like the Military is being screwed too. The ones from the Vietnam Era are having their disability cut, the VA claiming they are being over paid.
When a retired vet is 100% disabled there is not recovery but the VA sends letters out making sure the vet is still disabled and if they don't fill out this form and send it back certified mail, then the Va throws their forms away and cut their pay.
Chek out some of the forums for Veterans and you can see what they are doing to these poor men and women.

No, but Hagel and a host of other Obama appointees are die hard republicans. Much of Obama's actions support republican policies and give nothing to his base. I just want him to at least give a morsel to his base once in a while.
This morning Obama's toadies on CNN and NBC say it looks very good for President Obama on refusing to do anything about the massive increases in Govt Spending and the Spiking of the Deficit.

It was a gamble. But, Nancy Pelosi was right about today's Democratic voters. Just like in Calif, Dem supporters across the Nation just don't have the same emotional attachment to their children and grand children that once mattered to them. They will ignore the nightmare Obama's actions will deal to the next generation as long as THEY don't suffer for it.

Rumor has it Kennedy will step down from the court after voting for marriage equality in Jun.
I can't wait for Obama to make the SCOTUS a 6-3 solid liberal majority for the next 30 years!
That's the main reason millions of Americans voted to re-elect him.
I'm sure that would help you loons unsurp the constitution. You can't seem to get it done without an end run......sorry about the pun.

Hey, Obama could do what Reagan did and simply change the way unemployment is calculated. I remember for Reagan it went down 2% in one day. No one got a new job, but Reagan said the problem was solved.
FLASHBACK:'We are going to have to ask everybody to sacrifice'...

Why President Obama keeps the press away – playing golf with Tiger Woods doesn’t look good with 12 million Americans out of work and a $16 trillion debt

........but hey it's the liberal way......they line the streets waiting for the Presidential Float to throw mo candy.

Oh yes, gays marrying will be the end of the world.......
That's why no one takes you Rand Paul nutjobs seriously.
Men and women who are so selfish that do not understand what freedom and common sense is, and go beyond sanity are why we in America and the west are in decline. I don't know Rand Paul's views on gay marriage. With hetero marriage in the dumps, that tells me the civil rights movement has an affect on it. Marriage is hard work. And it is brutal at times. We laughed it off and now are being told that gay parents are better then hetero ones by the enactment of these laws. This is the issue. Deny all you want. I firmly believe that gay people have taken to much crap in history and do not deserve to be hurt and killed. In everyday living and working there should be tolerance. And that helps others from taking others bull. You trust humanity to much. Like men and women who follow Christianity and are not forceful to others and were emasculated to get you to feel the empowerment you force on others. The problem with that is our nation is in decline and there are deniers. I am the vanguard of telling you I won't save anymore and there are tens of millions of us and you laugh it off. Another decade I will get my social security deserved payoff. No guilt in that. Like all of the people cheating and scamming and are owed and have cost us trillions of dollars. your movements are based on others guilt. But guilt gets removed in situations from those who pay. And they represent all groups of people. And the one group who has paid at the highest percentage are those of religion. Who you have abused and emasculated and have beat down to the pojt where they are joining your train of thought. So they are joining you with much less guilt. And are learning the art of collecting. Star Trek nirvana is good. But the folks in that fictional environment are not bums scamming a limited system. They do the best they can. That is not our nation. It pays to be mediocre. And that is our death knell. So we will be mean to each other. Real bad. It is guaranteed.

Yea. We gotta blame Obama for what congress does. We gotta try to cut our way to prosperity. We gotta ask more of the poor and indigent. Why should they be allowed access to food when there are rich people with only 4 houses. Do you know how embarrassing it is to only have four houses. The government has to do something.

I can understand your immediate reaction to leaving your country if there is anything you don't like. I don't share that reaction.
Since you like less and less government, and you don't like what is happening here, might I suggest Somalia. They have almost no government, which is the republican ideal. I am sure all of your polices are already in place there.

Not section 8, the funding comes from the military industrial complex. You know, where we pay tons in taxes and they get to skim all they want off the top.

Again you aren't making sense. Somalia suffers from NO Military protection for their citizens. That is more of an Obamacrat thing. The Obamacrats demand for deep cuts in the Defense Budget in their portion of the Sequestration.

Obamacrats want to us all to ignore the FACT that National Security and Maintaining our Nation's Border Integrity was supposed to be the main reason for creating the Federal Govt in the first place not Class Warfare and "Social Engineering" which is their obsession.
