Sequestration

about Clay Bennett...

The son of a career army officer, Bennett led a nomadic life, attending ten different schools before graduating in 1980 from the University of North Alabama with degrees in Art and History. After brief stints as a staff artist at the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and the Fayetteville (NC) Times, he went on to serve as the editorial cartoonist for the St. Petersburg Times (1981-1994) and The Christian Science Monitor (1997-2007), before joining the staff of the ...

Clay, you need a half black, half white guy in golf attire named Barry Obama, whose brother sleeps in a card board box and lives on $1.00 a day, handing the scissors off to himself since sequestration was the Welfare Pimp's idea. Like most childish, emotional, liberals, Clay, you seem to have a very biased point of view. On another note, how about Hillary Clinton's compassion or should I say....love of money. Shortly after abadoning her job as one of the few Secretaries Of State to have an American embassey and it's American ambassador destroyed, instead of doing fund rasing or volunteer work for say....THE WOUNDED WARRIORS, Miss Piggy Hillary, signs a speakers bureau contract where she will be paid like her philandering husband Slick Willie, $100,000 per speech. Sooooooo very "capitalist" in her nature. As usual, as it always is with the Democrats, it is about the money. Look for Barry The Welfare Pimp Obama to do the same thing after he trashes the so called wealthy and ruins economic opportunity for the reat of us over the next four years. It's the old "Let Them Eat Cake" syndrome.

Oh yes I forgot Clay, a doodle depicting Democrat Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr, and his wife being escorted to prison wearing fur capes and Rolex watches is in order don't ya think? Jesse will have a ball in prison with that cape and his Michael Jackson collection. Beat It, Beat It......

Ha. But in a rare example of bipartisanship, National Review and Paul Krugman, the half-hobbits and the orc, both endorsed the sequester.

The previous comments, while nasty, were illuminating. Are our liberal friends sleeping in this Saturday? Oh, well, back to bed if the kids are quiet.

One of the few decent ideas (sequestration)to come out of the White House.

Let's have a Sequestration every year until we're out of debt and the budget is balanced.

February 23, 2013 at 8:10 a.m.
conservative said...

I agree with you Cactus!

But notice the large pair of scissors depicted by the Liberal. The cuts are small relative to our annual deficit and the overall debt but the Liberals view them as large.

There are just too many on the government plantation who don't care about our debt and the future burden on our children.

I believe this nation has passed the point of no return. Those who rely on government instead of God have a lot of misery in store for them.

These cuts as a percent of spending are so small they will hardly be noticeable. I wonder how long it would take people to realize the government other than the military and the social security offices were to shout down? The city seeing anything noticeable would probably be Washington D.C. The politicos would not want a targeted shout down to reveal how useless some departments are.

February 23, 2013 at 10:19 a.m.
fairmon said...

The military scare tactics avoid base closings and reductions in civilian employees consistent with reductions in active duty personnel in two wars. The whole military contracting scheme needs to be investigated and publicized.

Not one department head is capable of a zero based budget process where they outline what is to be spent and why with a measureable cost benefit analysis. The same analysis should be required for all current and any new regulations.

February 23, 2013 at 10:27 a.m.
fairmon said...

The republicans should give Obama the discretion of where and how to make the cuts that achieve the objective timely. The total cuts were his proposal to get the increased tax revenue which he got so allow him to make the cuts.

timbo said...

The only thing wrong with this picture is that the scissors aren't large enough. If we can't cut one half of 1% from our budget this country doesn't deserve to exist. I am absolutely ashamed of this country. We are just a bunch of deadbeats.

Just like the large states and large cities of this country, Liberals have basically ruined everything. Liberalism is like a fungus, it just keeps creeping and creeping and creeping until it takes over the whole body. All the while, 50% of this country is delusional. This page and some of the liberal loons on it are absolute proof of that.

A lot of good people are going to be hurt by these cuts. Unfortunately, it cannot be avoided if we are going to get out of a mess.

Just as bleeding hearts feed wild animals and make them dependent on us, and then those animals starve when they multiply and become dependent if we stop feeding them, the American people are going to suffer from the irresponsibility of our government.

Both sides are to blame. Government organizations which had to grow in order to justify their existence will shrink back to something that is still too big, but not as big as it was.

I know a LOT of good people who work for the federal government who deserve more pay than they get. I also know a lot of good people who work for the federal government who are vastly overpaid for what they do, and for what they are capable of doing.

I think we are going to see a vast and quick reduction in military spending. I hope that the rest of the world will also reduce their forces. There is nothing left on a global scale worth fighting for. Anything we want can be ordered from Amazon.com. The Muslim fundamentalists will either wipe each other out on their own soil, or go back to the stone age and read the Quran and leave the science books alone.

It took the Former Soviet Union going broke and declaring peace on Earth to bring an end to the Cold War. Maybe if we do the same, it will bring an end to our influence in the rest of the world, and they can fend for themselves.

The implements of war, and particularly nuclear weapons, are incredibly expensive to build and maintain. The world can do without them.

All of the money required to run our government's programs comes from borrowing, or from taxes we pay. Giving that spending power back to the people is the right thing to do.

The only problem is, how do we force people who work at jobs to redistribute their money to the dependent poor?

This is Obama's dirty little secret. He knows that we cannot go on this way. He also knows that his political party cannot survive if the government he heads does not continue to give away unearned money through social programs. He's passing the buck to sequestration, and he's attempting to avoid responsibility for his part in it.

America just went bankrupt, and now it cannot pay its employees. It cannot continue to give away money to charity. Everybody loses. The Liberal bubble has burst.

By the way, I have a nice little 4-acre compound in farm country in Georgia. Anyone who can live on $2000 a month can buy the place from me, move down there and grow most of their own food instead of waiting for someone to hand it to them. Sure, it will take some back-breaking physical labor to do it, but that's how people lived 80 years ago in this country. At least now we have electricity to help with the hard work.

After listening to, and reading about ‘sequestration’ from the usual suspects; I have to conclude that today’s right wing willfully ignorant class; Deficit chicken little’s, defenders of the 1%, corporate person hood, and their underlying belief that, “Privatize profits, socialize losses” is valid and just evidences beyond a shadow of a doubt, it is they, the conservative right, that are the true socialists. Combine this with the Taliban like fervor of Christian right (extremism) and you have all the makings of a ‘National Socialist Party’. The antithesis of everything this country (and an enlightened civilization) was founded on.

Our Declaration of Independence states that "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal”. For today’s right wing however, the following is truer definition.[ “All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others.”]

[“An uproar of voices was coming from the Christian church. They rushed back, looked through the window. Yes, a violent quarrel of pigs was in progress. There were shoutings, bangings on the table, sharp suspicious glances, furious denials and shouts of pious righteousness. The source of the trouble appeared to be that Conservative, JonRoss and Maximus(aka Pee Wee) had each played a royal flush simultaneously and each demanded the pot.

More voices were now shouting in anger, and they were all alike. No question, now, what had happened to the faces of the pigs. The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to pig, and from pig to man again; but already it was impossible to say which was which.”]

And we still can’t see which is which - even today.

Paraphrased from [‘Animal Farm’]

Before there is any rebuttal by uninformed buffoonery, know this. I am not a Democrat, I did not support nor vote Democratic party line.

Quick rebuttal by uninformed buffoonery Timbo,

There was no ‘interpretation’ of the Constitution’. The passage, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal” is from the Declaration of Independence. Not the Constitution! They’re different y’know.

Oh, And it is not founded on Christianity!

Mr. Marx would be ashamed of your lack of civic knowledge. (And I do mean Groucho).

Say JonRoss,

While myself being no fan of the present administration, I've gotta ask. Do you have anything other than FOX News innuendo to back up your claim, "Obama is a Marxist. His parents were, he surrounded himself with Marxists in his college years, and his current stable of friends and advisors are Marxists.

OR the unbelievable claim that, like Allende', Obama "used violent mobs, ie. “occupy Wall Street” to attempt total control?

WOW!

So. The Bush's were deeply involved with the Nazi's. Ergo, G W Bush's family were Nazis, he surrounded himself with Nazis, dictatorial terrorist facilitators, felons and war criminals, and he is a (compassionate) conservative. As the Republicans (in their present incarnation) are offshoots of this murderous cabal, logic (as use by you) would make the whole of conservatism fascists bent on destroying America.

nucanuck said...

The sequester will cut sacred cow military spending and that is a good thing. But we need to remember that spending cuts are job cuts which create more unemployed surplus humans that will need assistance. So yes, we will reduce spending, but possibly at the cost of reduced revenue and increased operating cost.

Either continued spending/borrowing or reduced spending lead directly into a default trap of our own making. Pick your poison. Which road to default is less bad? Our very best minds really don't know.

If you are sure that you know which is best, you probably don't know enough.

JonDumbass,

"So everyone agrees the bios at thepeoplescube are correct in content ?"

No.

There is no evidence Obama's mother was a Marxist.

Obama never met his father.

There is no evidence Frank Davis Marshall mentored Obama about Marxism or anything of the sort.

Obama never had a relationship with Bill Ayers, Bernardine Dohrn, or Alice Palmer.

Obama was only a patient of Dr. Quentin Young.

There is no proof Sam Graham-Felsen is a Marxist.

You cannot become a Marxist by diffusion. To say he is or that he was surrounded by Marxists his whole life is an egregious falsehood. There is no true in your claims. They have been disproven many times over. You WingNut idiots don't have the slightest clue what a Marxist, Communist or Socialist is. Your lies will not pass here.

JonRoss's lies have been disputed over and over ad nauseum. The source isn't credible whatsoever and has been proven to contain false information. JonRoss isn't credible and just happens to be a proven liar to boot. You are simply a moron for believing it.

Easy123, the other day you made the following post about Saul Alinsky: “I'm not using any "tactics" and I have not studied him at all. The man wasn't a Communist as you've suggested in the past.” February 21, 2013 at 7:21 a.m.

You were then asked the question "If Alinsky wasn't a marxist what do you believe he was?"

Your response was: “I have no idea. I haven't met the man and I truly do not care what he was. However, it is fairly obvious that Alinsky wasn't a Communist or a Marxist.” February 21, 2013 at 7:55 a.m.

Since you clearly stated you have not studied Alinsky how can you say he wasn’t a Communist or a Marxist?

"Here are some links to show Obama's connections with Ayers and Dohrn, Frank Marshall Davis and Sam Graham Felson"

Obama was no more than acquaintances with Bill Ayers or Dohrn. That has been well documented.

http://www.snopes.com/politics/obama/ayers.asp

There is no evidence even being acquaintances with Sam Graham-Felson. There is no evidence that Felson is even a Communist.

alprova said...

JonRoss, your link is complete crap, and the biographies offered there are nothing more than the same crap that has been regurgitated for four years in regard to the President.

Every man deserves to be assessed based not on the people that some believe they have present and past association with, but based on their own words and deeds.

Thus...if, and I do mean if...it were remotely true that the President has had any association with Bill Ayers, it does not mean that he supports a doggone thing the man did or said in his past. Obama was about 8 years at the height of Bill Ayers and his wife's anti-war activism.

I've read a great deal of and from Bill Ayers. I was also about 8 years old when all that was going on, but had I been a young man at the time that the draft was going on, I would have likely been right there with the man protesting.

There is a big difference between drafting our young to defend our nation, and that in forced defense of one halfway around the world.

Bill Ayers, since he turned himself in to the FBI in the 70's to face the music, has lived an exemplary life. You might disagree with his politics, and other views the man has expressed, but he is as free as you are to express them.

You are just as free to size up the President based on any criteria you wish, which you apparently do, given that which you post day in and day out.

What will never happen however, is for anything you type to make an iota of difference in the fact that he will remain the President for the next four years.

So type away with complete ignorance. Those of us who voted for the man, know that what you believe will never change a thing.

conservative, I notice that you left out the scripture I posted to prove my assertions.

Why is that? Are you ashamed to read the truth, that the Bible backs me up?

If the Bible is accurate and the word of God, then God murdered with premeditation on more than on occasion, untold numbers of men, women, and children, not to mention animal life that existed at the time on this planet.

That statement is not blasphemous in the least sense of the word. The Bible is the very book from where I derived that knowledge.

You can keep posting every time I post something in this forum, but until you refute my statement, it stands as the truth, as anyone can read in the Bible.

It all starts with Genesis 6:5 and ends with Genesis 8:20-21, where God in retrospect offers, "20 Then Noah built an altar to the Lord and, taking some of all the clean animals and clean birds, he sacrificed burnt offerings on it."

"21 The Lord smelled the pleasing aroma and said in his heart: "Never again will I curse the ground because of humans, even though every inclination of the human heart is evil from childhood. And never again will I destroy all living creatures, as I have done."

It's this kind of misinformation that has come to define the anti-Obama nuts across this nation.

It is not a 100 day tour to promote welfare.

Although no official announcement has been made by anyone, there is an initiative underway by Federal officials who will be meeting with local officials in a series of visits to 100 cities around the nation as part of a White House program to support urban revitalization.

Representatives from the EPA, U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, Federal Highway Administration, the US Department of Transportation, Center for Disease Control and Prevention, and representatives from various state and regional offices will be conducting the meetings. There are also nonprofits and charitable businesses on hand at these meetings, not affiliated with the U.S. Government, that will be awarding various grants to cities for urban renewal projects.

The focus will be on providing funds for needed infrastructure improvements, to help build housing for both the rich and the poor, community health centers, and a plethora of other needs that cities may have.

The President will not likely be involved personally with any of these, yet to be scheduled symposiums.

Some of you people truly need to pull your heads out of your hind ends and to quit reading dump truck loads of horse manure and to learn the truth.

THE BLAME GAME

Republicans are more concerned with blaming Obama for sequestration than with eliminating loopholes and exemptions for millionaires and billionaires. Is anyone surprised? Anyone?

Presidential wanna-be Mitt Romney promised closing loopholes could balance the federal budget.

Maybe it was Obama's idea. Maybe it wasn't. When the Bill passed Congress and the President signed it, John Boehner crowed, “I got 98% of what I wanted.” He was grinning like a pumpkin. (Okay, ‘jack-o-lantern,’ but same lovely orange.) Paul Ryan weighed in, too, boasting about the republican victory.

Regardless of whom you wish to blame, this is an easy problem to solve. Congress passed the Budget Control Act of 2011. It was born out of the debt-ceiling debacle; Congress can pass another bill to render the first bill null and void. There is only one reason why House republicans refuse to entertain the notion of an idea of killing sequestration. Just one.

Republicans are all on board the S.S. Sequester. Toot-toot! They all want those massive budget cuts. They still cling to the idea that block headed notion that we can cut our way to prosperity. Please, oh, please, tea baggers beg, please don't tread on our poor down trodden rich folks . We can make up the difference by cutting funds from food stamps, school lunches, Medicare, and so forth.

One more reason republicans are known as the ‘Stupid Party.’

limric said...

Good points Blackwater,

I like it.

The Boehner boys and the GOP are clueless and desperate, and acting like two year olds to avoid the blame they know Americans will hammer them with, and instead of even giving the’ appearance’ of a plan, or they care about America, their last-ditch effort is…blaming the President. Sooo predictable.

Further, Justin Amash (R-Michigan), somehow understands the foolishness of blaming Obama. He said, “It’s a mistake on the part of Republicans to try to pin the sequester on Obama, it’s totally disingenuous. The debt ceiling deal in 2011 was agreed to by Republicans and Democrats, you can’t vote for something and, with a straight face, go blame the other guy for its existence in law.” Me thinks Mr. Amash missed the memo that the one and only hard rule of being a Republican is “blame Obama for everything; especially for Republican incompetence and malfeasance.

With a week to go, there is still a small hope that the Republicans will be forced to actually DO something for Americans, (regular Americans, not just the 1%) but they are so out of practice that they don't seem they know how anymore. The Obama administration knows this. The Boehner boys and the rest of the Republican swine are being played.

Alprova....Urban Revitalization......Really? You are so stupid you are starting to believe in Obama. Wow. Again, it is about one thing....money. Revitalize that. When Obama is done he will be getting $100,000 a pop for each speech, driving a Bentley while you are still living in the trailer on Brainerd Road driving a rusted out Gremlin that needs REVITALIZATION. Is that the same thing as Urban Renewal? You know Axelrod has gone to work for NBC the folks that were paying him any way. Another sign of how the Democrats own the media in the U.S. with a few exceptions.
