How sad is it that grown people have to resort to these kinds of shenanigans in order to convince themselves to do their own job? Pathetic.

I prefer to go hokey pokey on atheist daughters.

Of course they farking do. This is why we'll cut things that actually help our military in favor of manufacturing equipment to not use. Defense contractors now how to spread it around so their most expensive whiz-bang death machines are made of parts manufactured in enough different states to stay protected.

To be fair, going NAMBLA is why Republicans want to outlaw abortion: They get access to those fine young boys, screw them up six ways from Sunday, and then let them join the military to die protecting their overseas investments. It's a win for Republicans no matter how you look at it.

Wow, it's almost as if sequester is a TERRIBLE farkING IDEA.  Congratulations, by figuring this out you've risen to the inteligence level of "bananna slug". Keep this up and you might rise to "three-toed sloth".

Who was it that called the country a hostage worth saving during the shiat show that birthed the sequester?

Denial that a sequester would ever happen, anger (ee John McCain's tour), now bargaining.

Literally millions of ordinary americans are unable to do their jobs without constant fear of getting laid off, and companies are unable to plan for the future because a couple hundred asshats can't pass a farking budget.

The sequester is a bit of organized kabuki to give the Tea Party caucus something they can take back to their constituents to say "I STOOD MY GROUND AGAINST FARTBONGO!".  It remains to be seen if and/or for how long the corporate masters at GD, GE, KBR, etc will permit this to go on before jerking the leash of the Senators they "keep in their pockets, like so many nickels and dimes" to get on with it and restore the money pipeline.  The sequester was always a stupid idea, made even stupider by the fact that the Republicans who thought they'd finally cornered the President are figuring out their constituents will hold them directly accountable if jobs are lost over this.

Wasn't this story posted earlier today?

Paul Baumer: the Republicans who thought they'd finally cornered the President are figuring out their constituents will hold them directly accountable if jobs are lost over this.


I'll believe that when I see it. Also, even if their constituents vote them out, they'll be replaced by a more extreme Representative, making situations like the sequester more likely, not less.

For the Ted Cruz' of the world, perhaps not.  For actual competitive races in swing states, I think it is a very real thing.

Yeah, but competitive races in swing states probably don't have Teatarded representatives.

I'd love to see it go into effect with the cuts targeted to programs which benefit Republicans-controlled areas.

Water projects along the Mississippi river? Defense contractors in Arizona? National laboratories in New Mexico? Cut them all and starve the beast. Maybe GOP voters will realize why the government is necessary when they're unemployed and need some of those programs.

> Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) has been huddling with top Navy officials at the Pentagon and in the Capitol about how to protect thousands of jobs at the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard

Please, that's not even in her state!

New Mexico is not a "Republican-controlled area." Both US Senators and 2 of the 3 US Representatives are Democrats. Both legislative houses in the state have Democratic majorities.

Please. Fox News will just blame it on Fartbongo, and their viewership won't know the difference. Thirty percent of the populace will vote GOP always, even if they single-handedly voted for predator drones to shoot missiles at their own voters.

So? If theyre going to blame Obama no matter what, fark em. You're essentially saying that there's no political cost for Dems in pissing off Republicans.

30? Looking at the trend of the last four or five elections 40-45 percent will always vote Republican, 40-45 percent will always vote Democrat and the remaining 10-20 percent are moderates. They are the all important swing voters.

Wouldn't it be interesting if Obama could target some of the sequester cuts to the home districts of the Tea Partiers? Their constituents might get religion very fast.

YOU shouldn't spend on things you don't need,
but this bling looks great on me.

The president has a lot of lattitude in this. Shut down the grand canyon and Yellowstone national parks, but leave open Yosemite and Smithsonian
