Government workers riled up ahead of automatic budget cuts

Feb 28, 2013 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Reuters

Government workers normally unfazed by political gridlock are angry that they will be disproportionately hurt by Washington's inability to reach a deal to avoid some $85 billion in automatic budget cuts due to kick in on Friday.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Alert: The One Peoples Public Trust
Forecloses on Major Corporations, Including
Banks
February 04, 2013 -- The One People's Public Trust today is alerting each man, woman, and child on
this planet that banks and corporations operating under the guise of the people’s governments
have been foreclosed upon by their own free will. The titles, ownership, and rights of these
corporations and all their assets are now duly secured and held in trust for the one people of this
planet, equally.
Multiple investigations uncovered evidence of principals, agents, and beneficiaries of a slavery
system that knowingly performed substantial and systemic deceptive acts and practices, fraud,
theft, and commandeering of the value of the one people of this planet without their knowing,
willing and intentional consent. Based on the record of this slavery system, The Public Trust lawfully
and legally duly registered the foreclosure, judgment, and remedy against these corporations for
the damages made and done against the people of this planet that they have damaged.
This action is the outcome of multiple-year investigations. People of the planet, on every country,
may have a financial interest in the assets of these former principals, agents, and beneficiaries of
the foreclosed corporations and banks. Interested people everywhere on this planet are encouraged
to investigate this matter on their own. See www.oppt-in.com .
The Public Trust asserts what is: that each man, woman, and child has unalienable value and rights
granted and deposited in them by the Creator and not any one of the people is subordinate to any
artificial principality, corporate fiction or the special interest of another without their appropriate
knowing, willing and intentional consent made by contract or accommodation agreement. The
Public Trust expressed that which already was.
The people have already determined and demanded that public banking systems, national
governments, and their supporting judicial systems must be fully transparent, accountable, and
liable. The Public Trust has secured the value for all concerned, for all People are created equal.
About One People’s Public Trust (OPPT), The Public Trust, the One People's Public Trust, People's
Public Trust 1776, etc., are duly secured, entered into Law Ordinance, inclusive of Universal Law
Ordinance, notice by action of entry into International Law Ordinance, notice by public registrat

Duly FORECLOSED...
This sort's actions and systems, whether under the deceptive guise of “government”,“office”,“treaty” ,“act”,“constitution”,or “entity”, inclusive of the private systems formerly known as,“NATION”,“UNITED NATIONS”, and its special agencies of “IMF”,“THE HAGUE”,“WORLD BANK”, and “BANK FOR INTERNATIONAL SETTLEMENTS”... from each family of this sort of “magician”, from land to land, sea to sea, to “The Holy Sea”, all have been lawfully, legally and duly verified as REGISTERED in COMMERCE as duly FORECLOSED... duly verified DEBTORS to the people, all the people equally on earth, on October 24, 2012, as a matter of law, matter of fact, and as a matter of public policy... unrebuttable and unrebutted.

OMG, this is so fun to watch. The President was so sure the Republicans would cave, and give him everything he wanted. His dire predictions will not happen tomorrow, and he will look like the Emperor who had no clothes. He is so stupid. The press is begining to get the message. He won't always be President, and they bought themselves a pig in a poke.

Do not underestimate Obama. He's already shown that he is willing to spread panic to get his way. And he is doing it over a sequester he himself created! He would be willing to create a disaster too (one example: releasing thousands of criminal illegal aliens). Radicals know no boundaries and believe that whatever advances "the cause" is moral and acceptable.

Job loss is going to cut through the South like a disease. All of the Federal Money spent to prop up low wage paying Red States will hammer Contractors employing Thousands of residents of Southern States employed to service the Federal Government and American citizens.

We will save money, the deficit has been reduced for 3 years, this year's deficit is estimated to come in at $840 Billion, by next year that should be reduced even more by $80 Billion. But there will be less tax revenue because of the loss of jobs.

Then the individuals loosing jobs will be moved to unemployment, so that is a jack up in spending.

But this seems the only strategy the Republicans have to become relevant, Sabotage the economy.

So the sequesters doesn't contain 98% of the cuts in spending Boehner wanted, in exchange for raising the debt ceiling in 2011?

Boehner and Vice President Biden hammered out this deal. Boehner could not be seen as agreeing with Obama after their meetings and the $4 Trillion deficit reduction bill could not be agree to by Boehner because the Tea Party wasn't voting to support anything Obama agree on with Boehner.

Now it's Obama's sequester, which seems exaggerated.

The sequester only exist to protect tax credits and special exemptions for Oligarchs in America? This is part of the strategy to slice away parts of the New Deal and Great Society programs. Note how they are nibbling at social security and medicare while protecting the rebates for the wealthy and connected.

We can only pray that Congress can cut the 20% of govt workers who are unnecessary. It is not too much to ask Govt workers to work as hard as the public who are forced to support them.

Sequester was granted by the Republicans in exchange for raising the credit ceiling, Boehner and Biden negotiated, and Boehner claimed victory and touting he received 98% of what he wanted in a debt deal.

What were his options the Republicans left him with, to let the nation default?

You guys are forgetting conveniently, those hostage negotiations where the GOP held a virtual bomb over the nation.

We voted by emotion rather than critical thinking when we re-elected Obama like one would expect from 13 year old girls.
We had the chance to elect a Leader and kept the divisive social engineer instead. One thing is certain with our Social Eng subbing for a Leader.
Tomorrow will always be worse than yesterday.
