Opie you drew up the Sequestration, now LIVE with it, dumba&&!

WVCoughy, yeah you are right, the Defense Industry employs about 700,000 engineers, technicians, skilled machinists, and other HIGH PAID civilians who pay lots of taxes while making the USA the strongest military FORCE in the world.

Or we COULD beat our SWORDS into PLOWSHARES and give another $1.3 BILLION to Moesha in Detroit to support another one of her five children by five different fathers, none of whom could be found.

And look who BENEFITS from all of the Welfare Trickle down: Budweiser, Boones' Farm, Miller Brewing, Cheetos, FritoLay, Slim Jims, . . . . . . .

Liberals think that giving food stamps and welfare to millions of lazy ass Americans will "stimulate" the economy but that spending a fraction of this money to employ highly paid defense industry workers who pay taxes will NOT "stimulate" the economy.

Now, I know that most libbies don't understand even basic economics but people working and paying taxes is FAR more advantageous than people not working and collecting tax transfers.

"Mein Kampf author Adolf Hitler (who, as I understand it, campaigned on the slogans of "hope" and "change") said all the problems of Germany were the result of Jews. He also said Jewish politicians were responsible for the Armistice of 1918, and they forced Germany to pay huge amounts of money and goods for reparations."

obama, who also campaigned on the "Hope and Change" slogan said all the problems of America are the result the Republicans. He also said police, fireman, teachers will lose their jobs. Borders will be unsecure and children will go without food and medicine, etc.

What we are hearing today is right out of the Hitler playbook!

It takes two to tango. The GOP capitulated on the tax increase, now Obama can't allow a tiny spending cut? Who's the real problem?

Weekly Standard 3/2/2013

Its Official: Obama the $6 TRILLION dollar man!!

Since President Barack Obama took office in January 2009, more than $6 trillion dollars has been added to the national debt.

"Without fanfare, the Bureau of Public Debt at the Treasury Department quietly posted its daily debt report showing the total public debt of the U.S. government topped $16.687 trillion"On January 20, 2009, the day Mr. Obama took office, the debt stood at $10.626 trillion. The latest posting reflects an increase of over $6 trillion."

And debt is expected to increase by nearly another trillion this year.

It's an historic achievement for Obama, CBS notes.

"It's the largest increase to date under any U.S. president. During the eight-year presidency of George W. Bush, the debt soared by $4.9 trillion."

Hey Barrack, you've been outed as a fear-mongering LIAR. La la... You'd better STOP, the cuts you make may be your own, Barry take it slow, or someday you'll be all alone. Someday meaning back to your Chicago Hellhole, ASAP. All alone meaning in solitary confinement for treason. You fools who continue to support this anti-American prop of a president are bottom-feeding scum.

We need to have the showdown before the dollars is completely worthless and China owns most of the country from loans made to Obama. Now is better than later. Obama does not compromise but the Republicans in the House have compromised several times to avoid these showdowns. Obama's power comes from purchased votes of the 47% and the emerging illegal vote. He has to pay them from our money to keep them. He has never visited very many place in America (would never have come to WV if not for the Big Branch disaster) and does not care much for America as a nation. His problem is that the Constitution allows (for now) people to vote and they voted in a GOP majority in the House after Obama's first two yrs in offce when he controlled both Houses of Congress. Why do we assume that a political party controls the House? We voted those people in and we dumped out of town Mollohan and put in a Republican. The House is doing it's job, like it or not. Exactly what they are supposed to do.

Last night, I heard Mike Adams tell this story (the gist of it anyway): A tribe has to cut it's budget for it's defensive spear, to 70% of it's previous funding. Okay, cut 30% off the back end of the spear. Nope, Obama does like he's told and cuts off the point first. To*****with our national security, our economy, our children's and grandchildren's future. YOU own this sequester Mr. President. Everyone knows it. Even your media lap dogs are caving. Your lies are unsustainable.
