Cletus C.: cameroncrazy1984: Ivandrago: I just feel that democrats should have had the forethought to know that republicans would play this game

Oh right, the Dems should have had a crystal ball. Both sides are bad because the Dems can't see into the future.

It took a crystal ball to know Republicans wouldn't go along with tax increases?


They did eventually, didn't they?

NEWSFLASH:  Ex-Obama speechwriter thinks "REPUBLICANS BAD!!!"
 
2013-04-08 02:28:36 PM
You don't need to bother having a conversation with anyone who honestly thought the effects of the sequester would be felt within the week. Seriously. They're too stupid to be worth engaging.

Walk away, turn the channel, do anything other than expose yourself to toxic levels of stupid.

It's almost like austerity has a negative effect on growth.  If only there was a tried and tested theory about what spending does to a nation's economy.

This is, once again, entirely the Republicans' fault. The sequester was only proposed because they forced it. And they got what they wanted.

The brilliance of the sequester, which I will gladly attribute to Obama, is that it is an across-the-board cut. Everybody hurts in some way or another. A very expensive object lesson in what exactly government does for you. Not that I expect any of the usual suspects to get this lesson or accept it if they do.

But: here's your austerity, cocksuckers. It's not just hitting poors and browns despite your best efforts, and the sacred military wasn't spared either. Like it? Didn't think so.

Yes.  You don't have to worry about your compound being raided...for now.

My wife works for a grant funded program where she provides counseling to school children (and families) with mental health issues. Looks like due to the sequester her program might get cut. However, the local school district is paying for additional cops to be in every school in the district full time so I guess we only care about them when they go absolutely crazy and bring a gun to school.

Sequester hit us very hard- they laid off and fired people who'd been working at the corporate level for decades. So far, most of us residential people are safe but I'm jumping ship ASAP.
Weirdly enough, I got a call today from the county wanting to interview me for a mental health counseling position. The government must be doing better than the nonprofits if they can afford to hire right now.

Democrats got their problems.  Big one is a helluva lot of 'em have started drinking the Austrian Flavor-Aid and believe the lie that tax cuts increase revenues.  Another is they're weak, always playing nice and talking diplomacy instead of punching belligerents in the face.  Finally they're not always RIGHT on their spending, they're just more likely to be right than the GOP.

And so goddamn many voters either vote STUPID, or throw up their hands and don't vote at all.  Spitting venom at both sides instead of getting out and DOING.

Ivandrago: It's very easy to sit here at home and spit venom at both sides, I just try and spit a little more at the republicans. I really wanted to be a U.S. Marshal.


Run for office?    I realize that these days the only folks who seem to get anywhere are the ones who were born into it (another problem) or at least started early, but there are important offices out there that could use people who actually care.  I would if I didn't have certain personal problems* precluding me from running.  Also I sound fat and my knees are like steak knives.

Aesop had a story about this.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Farmer_and_the_Viper



"A Hausa tale from the north of Nigeria has certain details similar to Aesop in its treatment of ingratitude for favours rendered. A farmer hides a hunted snake by allowing it to creep up his anus. When the snake refuses to leave its comfortable quarters, a heron helps him to expel it. The man then asks how to neutralise the poison that the snake has left and the heron tells him to make a medicine of six white fowl. The man ties it up to make the first of his victims but his wife frees it. On leaving, the heron pecks out one of her eyes. The story-teller ends with the remark that 'if you see the dust of a fight rising, you will know that a kindness is being repaid'."

Yeah, I'm in my 30's and you've only got so much time it's harder and harder to stay for enough to get through FLETC the older you get. So while they will probably offer classes in the future, I would have liked to do it sooner rather than later.
