    I also frequently do that by posting something that looks to be of interest that I haven't had time to read or examine thoroughly or maybe I haven't formed an opinion yet. I'll not comment at that time and pick it up later.

    A rejoinder to the afraid-to-post-a-public-picture, often verbose, TopAthlete:

    To be honest, I have the impression that you are a mindless drone who does nothing but support the conservative GOP/TEAbagger movement without any intellectual capability to comprehend or critique what you post. Maybe I'm being unfair. Can you prove me wrong, or do you not care to bother, expecting the support from the minority here who appreciate your threads even though you are unable to defend them? Maybe they believe allegations from the far right don't need to be supported or justified. Maybe you are able to take advantage of that instead of an intellectually honest forum where you would be crucified.

    Can someone explain to me how the budgets and funding for all these departments is automaticly increased each year and yet democrats call it a cut? Its not a cut at all. Budgets are increased each year! The sequester means instead of getting one dollar more, government is only getting .97 cents on that dollar, yet Obama is out speaking to everyone instead of who he should be talking to to slove the problem. In two minutes leaders from both parties can agree to targeted department cuts instead of the across the board cuts which Obama wanted in the first place. Its amazing how everyone of us has to do with less and pay more but government cant do the same.

    The Way Out of the Sequester Is Cutting Tax Expenditures

    "All it takes is for the Republicans to remember that there are hundreds of billions of dollars in hidden spending programs that operate through the tax system. Cutting them would satisfy both Republicans who demand smaller government and Democrats who want higher revenue.

    These spending programs are known as “tax expenditures,” and for good reason. In most cases they are indistinguishable from spending programs in every respect, except that they deliver their benefit in the form of a targeted tax break instead of a government check."

    The point is lost on the OP and many others.

    The Obama administration has some internal number that they base a cut on. The government is running on a continuing resolution budget from 2010, which at the time both houses were Democtrat.

    Could you imaginr if in 2006 Nancy Pelosi were asked by Bush to run under a continuing resolution from 2005 , continuing all the funding levels of 2005. No negotiation or input of a new Democratic elected majority. ( Hell would freeze over).

    Obama has a complicit media that has ignored the clear fact that the Senate in league with the White House has stonewalled a budget. The normal negotiations are not happening.

    Obama chooses a campaign approach and is willing to demagogue and thow out false statements like "teacher pink slips" which are just plain false.


    At this point it is clear Obama has no desire to deal. He just wants his way.

    A person I work with who lived in California said the sequester is exactly the same fear and lies told by the democrats that happened in 1978 when proposition 13 was passed. It was a tax freeze voted on by the taxpayers of California. The democrats said the state would face every doom and gloom scenerio that the Obamanites are saying will hapen today. The result? None of it happend, in fact the state thrived for a couple years because of it. Lies and fear is all Obama can do. Golf anyone?

    It shouldn't have take him much time at all as he just copied what I wrote and changed a couple of words. The poor guy isn't able to do much, so it is probably more charitable to just let him be.


    Is he fried from too much drug use do you think?

    As with all things, somewhere in the middle lies the truth. Truth does not lay with Democrats or Republicans. All are wasteful bastards.
