Sequestor has come and gone; the impact was being likened to the end of the Mayan calander. Not saying there has been no impact however, not all of the fire and brimstone that was assured does not seem as dire as promised. So, is this just the begining of long term affects? Or is it something that was not as horrible as promised? The lack of media coverage already answers part of the question. What is getting lost in translation is that the obama camp painted such a gloomy picture but has backed off now that sequestor has occurred. The bottom line is the republicans called his bluff and he has no plan "B" to fall back on. The DOD will be the most affected which has almost always been the sacraficial lamb under democratic leadership anyway. So, what is the next "crisis" to be averted? Where do we go from here? I had hoped that there would have been more congressional action at this point. This is just another example of the whole systm being broke. Ironically those of us that have no say in policy are effected by it the most.

That's my point, when ever there is a s***sandwich served up, obama is absolved of any responsibility. It drives me crazy.... The irony of the sequestor is that it does not affect those on the "dole" Some unemployment benifits will expire but for the most part the social programs continue unabated.

I find it interesting that the Dems are of the belief that once sequestor is "felt"; the American public will "demand" higher taxes. I can't recall a time in recent history where we were all begging for higher taxes...The SSI has already increased costing ~$100-$150 per individual household. I am not in any hurry to lose more. The other reality is the demographic most hit is the government. Ironiclly this is what needed to get hit the most anyway. Sequestor has the oppotunity to be a "re-set"; if managed correctely we can be in a better place in a years time as oppossed to the last 10 years of fiscal failures.

Great question; none of them but I guess I don’t get off that easy... To be candid however I really don’t know and that is very scary by itself. All of the candidates are either old guard or too far left or right to make me feel confident that the ...

Groundhog Day
November 24, 2015
Does anyone find it ironic that a country that has been mostly pacifist for decades made some of the most decisive airstrikes against ISIS in the last year? This of course coupled with Russia’s response to the downing of one of its passenger jets makes one ponder if the USA ...

I'm Sorry...

I attempt to not do a whole lot of cutting and pasting but I feel it is important to get the complete jist… With that said I continue to be frustrated with an administration that apologizes for activities that most developed nations perpetrate. The whole saving face thing is hollow ...

Rioting Protacol

Well my Blogger Brethren; another “tidbit” to ponder… The “Oath Keepers” have come up with the solution to the Ferguson situation. They are advocating the protesters to also have guns so the Police will respect them and think twice before considers using deadly force. I have always been an avid ...
