Never the less: 
     I have about had enough of the news media, Washington politicians (especially the head one) acting as if no one other than their faithful can have an intelligent thought.  I have had enough of the scare tactics used over the implementation of the Sequester.
      At least half of the country knows that the United States is bankrupt the others either don't know or care.  I am mad enough at both parties to want them all thrown out.  Now the 'clever' chief executive has had his own program rise up and bite him.  Everyone in Washington is expecting the end to be near.  OVER SPENDING CUTS!
      DUH!!!!!!!!!!!!  We have been yelling for cutting federal spending and downsizing the government for years.  Both parties think that federal and other government jobs are the answer for everything.  The whole firestorm is over 2% cuts.  There is not one of you that could save that much just off the top of your head.
      If there is a major impact on people it is designed to be so.  Our state agencies have been cutting 10% from their budgets for several years and under two Governors.  We are still afloat.
      The news media, Democrats, and Republicans have been lying to us for years.  There is nothing short of a Constitutional Convention that will clean up the mess.  The few Congressmen we have gotten elected are neutered by their own parties when they try to actually do what we elected them to do.
      With the tremendous waste that the Government has, if the cuts are used to compromise our security it is a deliberate act.  There are entire government agencies that need to be done away with and get out of the way of free enterprise.
      The lies told about health care are being uncovered and people are discovering that the taxes that were not supposed to be there are already in place.  A huge lie.  Congratulations to Cabala's for having the courage to put on every receipt the 2 1/2 % sales tax to fund health care.  (you were not supposed to know about that).  Another official admitted that there would actually be health care shortages and death panels to decide who would get rationed health care.  There is another big lie.
      I will be contacting my congressman and urge more cuts.  Any idiot knows we need to cut off aid to foreign countries other than our strategic allies.
       Why are we fighting over gun control and giving fighter aircraft and battle tanks to Egypt so they can point them at Israel?
      I am also tired of seeing our Boris Bedenov and Natasha every time I turn on the television.  Thank goodness for the new season of Swamp People and Duck Dynasty so I can turn the CHANNEL from the major networks and watch people more intelligent than they are
     ENOUGH ALREADY!!!!!!!!!!
Maybe next week I can cool down enough to return to positive thoughts.

    Medicare gets 2% cuts. Other agencies get deeper cuts. The average, across the board, is about 8%. Some things, of course, will have to be cut much more than that, because other things can't be cut without compromising our nation's safety. Obama's only ability to affect any of this is his ability - and choice - to exempt military personnel pay from the cuts.

    Greg, whose job is to provide health care to military personnel, their dependents, and retirees (a.k.a. veterans), and who works 50+ hours/week doing his best to provide the best care possible to our military, was informed on Thursday that he will be subject to a mandatory one day/week furlough, accompanied, of course, by a 20% reduction in pay and vacation.

    We learned today that Gary will also be affected in the same way. He is also working as a civilian to take care of our military's healthcare, at Tinker AFB in Oklahoma.

    The non-partisan Office of Management and Budget (OMB) provided a report which said,

    "Under the assumptions required by the STA [Sequestration Transparency Act of 2012], the sequestration would result in a 9.4 percent reduction in non-exempt defense discretionary funding and an 8.2 percent reduction in non-exempt nondefense discretionary funding. The sequestration would also impose cuts of 2.0 percent to Medicare, 7.6 percent to other non-exempt nondefense mandatory programs, and 10.0 percent to non-exempt defense mandatory programs."

    Please get your facts straight. You have more lies and falsehoods in the above piece than I can begin to counter without writing a treatise. I strongly suggest pulling yourself away from Fox propaganda and reality shows, and widening your news sources. I hate to see you putting out false information, because I know that isn't your intent.
