The Sequester is nothing more than small decrease in the rate of increase in federal spending OVER 10 YEARS. President Obama should be the one to choose where the $85 billion in cuts should come from THIS YEAR since THE SEQUESTER was HIS IDEA TO BEGIN WIT

The President needs to lead on this issue he created instead of campaigning against it.

BO was given a chance to choose the cuts. He choose tax increases. He allowed this to go to the Sequester.

Observe the "Latest Post" on the right side of the National poltics screen. "By Munster", "By Munster", "By Munster"...ad nauseum. This guy MUST know EVERYTHING there is to know about EVERYTHING.

Lantham started to go that way also, until I suggested that something he posted might result in a visit by the ATF&E. He THEN backed off!

Marietta Times; Take your Munster and stick him. I'm DONE HERE!

Hundreds of thousands of Defense Department civilian employees will get a partial reprieve from the work furloughs imposed by the automatic across-the-board spending cuts known as the sequester, with their number of unpaid days off reduced to 14 from 22 between now and October. If they takes these as vacation days they will miss no pay.

How taxpayers have subsidized Murdoch and Fox News Posted on February 14, 2011 by jeffpelline “One of the things that I have been thinking about is that News Corp. (probably) gets far more tax subsidy than NPR through tax writeoffs. If Rupert Murdoch agrees to forgo any tax writeoffs than maybe we can talk about removing public funding from NPR,” as one observer notes.

Throughout the years, The Economist and others “dug deeper” to “out” Murdoch: “A (1999) report in the Economist newspaper offers an intriguing update. It states that in the four years to 30 June last year, Mr. Murdoch’s News Corporation and its subsidiaries paid only A$325m (£128m) in corporate taxes worldwide. That translates as 6% of the A$5.4bn consolidated pre-tax profits for the same period.

“By comparison another multi-national media empire, Disney, paid 31%. … “However, analysts suggest Mr Murdoch’s team broadly employ three strategies:

BeRight you big meany, Big Bird is for the CHILDREN and its all about the CHILDREN (who we are stealing from). Speaking of which, if we could keep those Obama girls out of the Bahamas, we would have enough to fund the school children to visit the White House. But I digress

If we cut funding for Big Bird, you can keep every control tower in the USA fully staffed. So do you want to keep Big Bird or the Air Traffic Control Towers and airline safety?

When the parties are trying to cut spending and balance the budget, I find it amusing that every special interest always quotes some statistic saying well this or that program is only “2%” or the budget or 3% of the budget or 1/1000% of the Fed’s budget. If we cut funding for Big Bird, you can keep every control tower in the USA fully staffed. So do you want to keep Big Bird or Air Traffic Control and airline safety?
