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.

White Privilege???

http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/black-teen-wins-essay-contest-on-topic-of-white-privilege/ar-BBzlogn?li=BBnbfcL I really hope my reaction to this is not considered race baiting however; continuing extenuate Perceived/Valid inequities is not doing anything to move past the pestilence of racism. I am just an Old Soldier so I guess I never was exposed to the Good Ole Boy/White Privilege Club. I ...

Class A Dirtbag

I have zero tolerance for this****bag that he "eloquently referred towards an American Soldier. Just another person who fails to understand that his self-righteous freedom speech exists because of our Military. He further has stated that the White Race needs to be exterminated....

http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/62-agencies-and-programs-trump-wants-to-eliminate/ar-BByb5tr?li=BBnb7Kz Interesting stuff here that can be looked at from both points of view. What I do see is a lot of redundancy and monies for specific regions. It also appears to me that a lot of these programs should be administered at State level and integrated into their own ...
