Who is “Non-essential”? Obviously, our Government thinks that WE are….


bill-whittle 33When President Obama rolled-out the first act of his “Shutdown Theater”, my very first thoughts went back to his ‘We’re all gonna die‘ warnings of the Sequester. 

Which is why I re-posted Bill Whittle’s brilliant take on the Sequester from earlier this year, even though I figured Bill would eventually get around to opining on our current idiocy, as well…

The Sequester does it again: Debbie Wasserman Shultz’s congressional aides can no longer afford food…

You, …yes, YOU…, are a selfish, heartless human being.

Don’t you know there are people in our nation who DESPERATELY need your help? These folks are starving! If an iota of empathy remained in your ice-cold, Conservative, hateful soul, you’d open up your wallet in order to feed those among us who are truly in need, those who are being made to pay for YOUR unwillingness to sacrifice….

… namely, the congressional aides of Democrat Debbie Wasserman Schultz.


The new lunch lines in the Congressional cafeterias

From the Washington Examiner:

Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla., said Congress has had to reduce constituent services because of the Sequester. “We’re really starting to see the effects of that in our office,” she said.

Our Petty President’s Political Petulance (*VIDEO*)

boohoo3The White House miscalculated mightily on the whole Sequester Fear-athon, and they’ve been taking it on the chin in the polls ever since. The pathetically insignificant cuts in the rate of spending happened, the world didn’t end, and we’re still borrowing approximately $.35 of every dollar spent.

So why would Obama-&-Company continue this deplorable tactic?

C’mon, you know why:

Mark Steyn and Charles Krauthammer on Chaos-mageddon (a.k.a. the Sequester)

jedi obamaObama did his best to save us from the dire consequences of the Sequester, and still those baby-eating Republicans wouldn’t listen to reason. Yes, the sky has fallen, the end of the world is nigh, and the doo-doo has hit the fan.

But don’t blame President Jedi; goodness knows none of this is HIS fault.


For some other opinions on this subject (other than just my overt sarcasm), we have two of the best brains in the business.

The President: “Who ya’ gonna believe – ME, or your own lyin’ eyes?”

For weeks, we’ve been bombarded with “Sequester = Death” via every news outlet and our President himself.

Or, basically, a 24/7 message which can be boiled down to:


Astonishingly, the media may actually be catching on to this scam. Ed over at HotAir.com quoted the National Journal, saying “…(the Obama White House’s) best-case political course hinges on the economy screeching to a halt“.

And then, similarly, you had this from the Washington Post:

Over the past week, President Obama has painted a picture of impending disaster, warning of travel delays, laid-off firefighters and pre-schoolers tossed out of Head Start.

Conservatives accuse Obama of exaggerating the impact, and some White House allies worry the slow-moving sequester may fail to live up to the hype.

How to destroy a city

Okay, America, question time: do you WANT us to become Detroit?

‘Cause that’s where we’re headed…

A Heapin' Plate of Conservative Politics & Religion

By Tom Quiner

Hiroshima was reduced to rubble in an instant.

The year was 1945. America dropped an atomic bomb on this proud city, leading to the death of 60,000 people and the destruction of the city’s infrastructure.

The devastating impact of the weapon led to the immediate end of the Pacific War, concluding World War II.

When you look at the photos of Hiroshima in the aftermath of the bombing, your first reaction might be that this city will never rise again.

You would be wrong.

Today, Hiroshima is a thriving, beautiful city. It’s population has grown from about 380,000 in 1945 to nearly 1.2 million today. The city has flourished under capitalism and is devoid of a welfare system.

Detroit was reduced to rubble more slowly than Hiroshima.

Unlike Hiroshima, Detroit’s population has declined precipitously, from 1.7 million in 1960 to a little more than 700,000 today. The…

Obama: “There’s NO smart way” to make these cuts

Government spending

Our President wants us to know one thing: we can never, ever, ever reduce Government spending, in any way. We simply can’t.

IRS problems have nothing to do with Budget Cuts…

Our Federal Government has now, officially, “jumped the shark” with this Sequester nonsense.

Just read a story in Politico which reported (with no sense of satire or sarcasm) that the potential budget cuts in the IRS:

“…will most likely translate to fewer specialists on hand to help taxpayers with their returns and to root out fraud — two tasks that watchdog groups say need more, not fewer, hands.”

Oh, the horror!

This just shows how desperate the Obama White House has to be, if they’re willing to trot out the IRS as a reason not to endure the world’s tiniest budget cut (and yes, I know, it’s not even a real “cut”).

paper cut

The Internal Revenue Service may be the least popular Government Agency in existence. This isn’t entirely their fault: “tax collector” has had a deservedly poor reputation since before the Bible went to press. But I still laughed out loud at the notion we’re supposed to be trembling with anxiety over the IRS’s dilemma. After all, if they really wanted to “root out fraud”, all they’d need to do is walk down the hall, considering how many folks in the White House (and throughout the Federal Government itself) owe back taxes.
