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.

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:

Cut Big Bird or the F-35 fighter jet, since neither Big Bird or the F-35 appear ready for flight in the near future, I say we go with the failed F-35 program and have fully staffed control towers and Big Bird.

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?

See if you can read this without LOL: One of the nation’s only producers of authentic cannons fears the sequestration will blow its business to smithereens. For 20 years, Steen Cannons, a maker of real cannons that shoot real cannonballs, has depended upon Uncle Sam as one of its most reliable customers thanks to the National Park Service's constant need of cannons to adorn the nation’s historic battlefields. "There's never enough cannons," says founder Marshall Steen, who sells about three out of the five cannons the company makes a month to the Park Service. "We always stay busy."While each national park's cannon budget is decided by the park itself, National Park Service spokesman, Jeffrey Olson says Steen has every reason to worry. "That would seem like a place that I would look to save money. If I didn't have to buy some cannons this year, I might not." Cannons or no Cannons?
