USA chooses Ice Cube over Ice Burg - The cruel joke of the Sequestration

The cruel joke of the budget Sequestration. The country is already sinking.

     The 85 billion dollar sequestration is not a debate on budget cuts . Its the debate on the level of Increased spending . It has nothing to do with actual cuts to a budget . The spending is going to continue to grow at staggering levels even if the sequestration occurs.

     President Obama already has achieved significant tax increases on Business and the middle class via Obama Care. He got further Tax increases on the wealthiest Americans as well as the working class in the last Tax deal . This all at a time when the economy did not grow in the last quarter of the year.

    This reality corresponds with the Obama Administration record spending in his first term as the DEBT of the nation has grown to 16.6 Trillion . The debt 10.6 Trillion when Obama took office. The Obama spending addiction has grown into a tax and regulation addiction . Perhaps the average Obama voter is clueless to the realities of this debt to even the next generation. Otherwise they would of not voted for more of the same .It is clearly a spending problem and it needs to be addressed in a real way for this nation to grow in prosperity. Something We all want long term. But currently we are chosing an immediate cookie over a well cooked steak . And if we continue to do so , even the cookies will crumble.

    One of the only real solutions for the country is to grow the economy while actually cutting spending .A real CUT or Balance Budget amendment . We need to pay are bills but we need to do it in a way that doesn't commit the country to economic suicide . Than there are no winners.(just ask greece)

    I am not optimistic about the nations future as it is over taxed , over regulated and the current admistration has a anti domestic energy policy.When you couple these anti capitalistic policies and add in the Obama spending addiction the nation looks more and more like the titanic and the Iceburg is closing in .While Obama plays Chicken Little as to what 85 billion dollars means to us all . He is really debating that an ice cube is a bigger threat than the ICE BURG. Sadly, too many Americans believe it .

Lyle, Up until this point you've been referencing our domestic situation. If you're now suggesting that both Democratic and Republican leaders in this country have, for almost 30 years, been under the sway of some sort of global oligarchical/plutocratic cabal, then you're essentially admitting that you subscribe to the mother of all conspiracy theories, the infamous "New World Order". Is that the case?

Lyle We were trying to get the government to shrink it's roles in spending even then. The fact is: even the GOP of the last 25 years hasn't been terribly "Conservative" until just the most recent years. The great influence of the TEA Party movement and retirements of many RINO's and DINO's has led this group closer to the front. Cantor Ryan and others get it. Boehner might be the last of the slghtly more RINO's out in our leadership. We shall see how tough he holds over the next 4-6-8 weeks. the CR is coming the Sequester is coming and another Debt cieling debate are all coming. Prez. Obama better start finding some thing to cut..start with postponing Obama-cares implementation another 2 years.

WW FDR Do? He would use even more letters from his alphabet soup style of governance until a World War could mask over his failures.

Ever notice how when I post this quote the liberals NEVER respond?

@ Steve For Liberals it is not about making Honest statements with commitments to back them up . It is about growing government control of peoples lives and eliminating freedom . Any Liberal that is paying attention knows Obama is a bald face Liar.That reality is a basic fact of life . But it doesnt matter when you sell your soul to the devil . In Fact, they lie to each other on things that are clearly False. Like Obama Care. The entire bill was a budgeting gimmick to sell it . Clearly, it will costs Trillions in unfunded entitlements in a relatively short period of time. Lies dont matter only the agenda. The ends justify the means. Perhaps these Liberal Kool Aid drinkers are quiet as a church mouse because they cant dispute Obama said those words AND they cant admit he is a liar.
