I have to say, I’m very disappointed. Barack Obama promised me an apocalypse. The fact that the PuffHosters had to put more padding in that list than is hanging on the walls of Alec Baldwin’s special happy place tells me that we’re not getting that apocalypse. It’s all just another broken Obama promise.

Here’s the deal. The path we’re on is not sustainable. We cannot keep spending at the rate we’re spending, and we cannot have every single cut in the rate of growth of spending dressed up to look like a world-ending plague. The government has to either cut spending pretty dramatically or just declare ownership of everything including your gold teeth to pay off its debts. The path we’re on now is leading to a slow but accelerating death.

Now, you may resume your sequestration panic in an orderly fashion.

I won't believe that the sequester has cut anything important until the Sun King has to skip a round of golf.

The White House is closed, but the "O" kids get to run off to the Bahamas for Spring Break.

They missed today's new sequester horror: Obama told reporters he was forced to move his mother-in-law out of the White House because of sequestration cut-backs. http://www.thedailyrash.com/sequester-cuts-force-obama-to-kick-mother-in-law-out

Other than the shortened school week for a relatively few children compared to the nation at large, I didn't see anything on this list with a serious impact to the national well being. It is a list of national glitz and fun pork being (temporarily) set aside.

Even White House Tours, while a nice thing to provide the public, are certainly not a national necessity. The problem in context is the continued White House functions at tax payer expense for the campaign donors and Hollywood elite which continue unabated. Yet even that is an insiginificant drop in the government's rabid overexpenditures which have barely been imperceptably scratched by the sequester.

I believe the annual airshow at my local base is being canceled this year. I love the airshow, but I understand.

The things on this list are like Mom & Dad telling you the family can't afford to go to Disneyland this year. Sucks, but not the end of the world.

Sure, I'll miss the airshow. Probably will for a few more years. But I'd rather the military spend their money on training, safety, and personnel welfare than on publicity stunts.

Priorities, people. It's about priorities...

This article for some reason reminded me of Alexis de Toqueville (spelling); and his accounts of visiting frontier-type people living in the remotest areas of the U.S.A. He was surprised not only at the resilience of these people, but with their ability to engage in conversation about politics, freedom and other subjects. Seemingly "low information" rednecks surprised de Toqueville and actually inspired him. The Left always regard with contempt the people of the U.S.A. and their (the left's) BIG mistake is to underestimate our resilience and our spirit ... they cannot possibly succeed in their subversion ... NEVER!!!! HuffPOS is a meaningless and bankrupt entity; both morally and financially; taking the definition of "fools" to previously unheard of heights.

The sky is falling, the sky is falling! I have no sympathy for people complaining about the ill effects of uncontrolled overspending. Yeah, Bush was guilty of it but our current chief clown seems to think his part of the deficit is anyone/everyone else's fault but his own. He claims he signed it because he thought no one would allow it to happen knowing all well it would be an ideal political move if the conservatives refused to cave in to his wasteful ways. He is the most disingenuous person to ever hold the nations highest office.

Don't be so flippant and make fun of this:

"19. Shorter school week at Fort Bragg, N.C."

We've got enough problems in our schools without .....shortening...... the class-room time.

What we still need is stimulus to get unemployment down from 8% and get people back to owning there own houses as George Bush wanted . But no one high up hand any idea the corruption on Wall Street and the banks were running like wild man in gollum mountain caves as West Rich man was selling their soul to Atheist communist Capitalist Red China and our secrets given to them
Once unemployment is brought low again from stimulus then we can burn at the stake the traitors who work with China which is the same as working with North Korea and Iran to destroy the west

No mention of the effects of Sequestration on the military. I am not surprised, as far as these people are concerned, it doesn't count.

Fools.

That's because the military is big and scary and kills people, but Big Bird is big and yellow and fluffy and he gives everybody hugs!

Seriously, the Dems have a hard time telling the difference between "essential for survival" and "nice to have" - something any non-dysfunctional family with a tight budget can do very easily.

Ordinary people stare poverty right in the face. Congressmen look at it sort of cross-eyed and then pretend it isn't there. Maybe it's the illusion of control. "We're the Government! WE decide how the economy will work, and we have decided we can spend as much as we want without any consequences!"
