the article failed to mention conservatives going off full tilt about a couple of parked aircraft carriers...My nutty republican "friend" said we should prepare for massive attack!


WOLVERINES!

At this point, I think a dystopian hellscape would be a HUGE improvement for this country.

My guess is that at about 11:59 pm Thursday night they'll find a way to kick the can down the road 6 months or so and we'll go through all this nonsense again in the summer.

That's not unlikely.

Yes, according to our fearless leaders, we are now teetering on the edge of complete chaos and the end of life as we know it every few months now if we don't do exactly as one of the two parties says.  There will be some last minute deal that delays disaster for another few months and we'll do it all over again.

I think the Republicans are going to be shocked and appalled when the Democrats don't step in to clean up their mess for them.

Future?
 
2013-02-26 04:17:23 PM  
We will move on without missing hardly a beat. As a country, we need a "hair cut". We've been spending like there's no tomorrow at least since I graduated high school in 1981.

I like how Fox seamlessly switches from denouncing Obama for creating it, never mind John Boehner proposed it, and saying it is incredibly destructive, to blaming the media for hyperbole.

Republicans of course can't understand why the above is wrong.

I was told on Facebook the spending cuts are miniscule and we should stop listening to the cry wolf media.

We only have about a dozen extra ones in service... which is about a dozen more super carriers than anyone else has.

/Each single one of which carries more aircraft and has more combat power than the militaries of 95% of the world........

2013-02-26 06:38:16 PM  
I'm going to go against what seems to be the consensus here and predict that the sequester will, in fact, kick in.  There will be cuts and there will be layoffs.  Now, I don't think they will leave it at that forever; I think they'll probably get something done in maybe a couple of weeks or months.  But my expectation is that Friday will arrive and there will not be a deal.

Another article counting Medicare and social security (which aren't getting cut) as part of the federal budget to make the cuts to discretionary spending seem much smaller than they will be.

WTFDYW: We will move on without missing hardly a beat. As a country, we need a "hair cut". We've been spending like there's no tomorrow at least since I graduated high school in 1981.


Yeah we were really spending too much on curing Alzheimer's and cancer and diabetes. Those automatic cuts to NIH and NSF funding were surely just the thing we needed to end the wanton spending. While we're at it, let's get a bunch of people laid off and thus spending less money into the economy; that's exactly what we need coming out of the recession.

As a country, "we" have been forced to feed hundreds of billions of dollars into the gaping maw of the super-rich while cutting social services to the bone and beyond.  Spending isn't the problem.

Douche.

I love how its "Obama's" fault the legislature can't do it's job according to yellow journalism.

Republicanism: is there no end to your blatant retardation? No? Didn't think so.

Hint: the president can't pass legislation. Civics class, I guess there were budget cuts at your elementary schools and you didn't learn about the governmental branches.

I heard John Boner on the radio arguing that Obama should go try and get a budget passed with the Dems in the senate... because you know... the senate can originate spending bills...


I believe that's in article farking one....
 
2013-02-26 06:52:36 PM  
I love how every republican is saying that Obama is completely responsible for the sequester, even though the republicans voted for it after Boehner gave his infamous PowerPoint presentation extolling its virtues. Not to mention Paul Ryan has spent years in the House repeatedly demanding a sequester tied to exceeding a spending cap be put into place.

Because it's totally relevant, here's a re-link to So what did Paul Ryan think about the sequester before he started blaming it on Obama? Go on, guess

Yeah, any budget cuts will come from releasing the most dangerous criminals and letting children starve.  Surely, there is no alternative.

From a Pew poll released today:

Sixty-two percent of adults say the GOP is out of touch with the American people, 56 percent say it's not open to change and 52 percent say it's too extreme, according to a Pew Research Center poll released Tuesday.

Forty-six percent of adults say the Democratic Party is out of touch with the American people, 38 percent of people say it's not open to change and 39 percent say it's too extreme.

Dear gop,
You're going to lose this sequestration fight too. Look for these numbers to soon be the good old days. You farks.

Sincerely,
The Majority

It's not a question of winning the battle though. Half of the GOP Congressmen want the sequester to go through. If they vote for anything Obama proposes, they will be crucified at home. If they vote against it, even if it means the sequester goes into effect, it means they get to keep their jobs no matter how much they just screwed over the country.

I fully expect the can to be kicked further down the road rather than an actual solution.

Listen Libtardos, take the Binky out of your mouths & put the Kool-Aid down.
Domestic flights are down 27 percent from pre-9/11 levels and the budget at the FAA is up 41 percent, That's all you need to know about any of this, the scary sequestration hype is uncalled for.

So from my tea party family member, it seems the current talking point is that the sequestor won't really affect anybody. Nobody is getting laid off and places will still be hiring.  That's good to know.
 
2013-02-26 07:06:39 PM  
The teabaggers and their ilk are finally getting the deep spending cuts they've been demanding for years. And they could not be more pissed off and frightened, so now it's "The Obama Sequester." That devilishly handsome Randian tax-cutting, fiscally responsible shooter of skeet! How dare he!?!?

About 47% of the country.  Those are the people who voted for Mitt Romney.

I have a friend who works for NOAA.  She and the entire rest of the staff are being furloughed 22 days next year.  The sequester is really effecting her and her family, as she is sole income for the household.  Although it's probably incredibly tiresome, you can tell your tea party family member that they're wrong.  Again.

I have, repeatedly. It just doesn't register. I've explained how it's impossible for it not to effect research institutions immediately as well as a ton of federal and contractor employees.

Someone pointed out in another thread how the cuts are going to hit the red states much harder than the blue. So we have that going for us.
