As the Sequester Turns!

Well, have you died yet?  If you say yes...I want a call!  LOL!

Has the FAA grounded planes yet?  Has the Apocalypse happened? Did you wake up on this side of the grass?  Did your dog die?  Has granny gone looney?  Did you kids starve this morning? Will you have to choose between your kids or medicine today?  Did Food Lion and Lowe's start selling diseased meat Saturday because those meat inspectors (all of them if you believe the hype) got axed?  

No?  What do you mean 'No'?  Are you sure?  Wait now....

According to our President, last Friday night at midnight Cinderella turned into a pumpkin, Big Bird's feathers fell out, people lost jobs, parents were in dire need of childcare, kids were going to die because they didn't get their vaccines, yada, yada, yada.

Monday didn't feel any different than Friday to me.  Tuesday felt just the same.  I bet I'll still get a Sanford Herald paper tomorrow morning.  I bet my trash will still be picked up, too. 

I bet I could still get on a plane and get where I need to.  

I bet Moochelle Obama will pack up and go on another vacation.  I bet Disney won't close down.  I bet the chefs at the White House will still serve caviar.  And flowers will be sent to PBO's BFF, Chavez, on the timely death of the dictator.  (Not a moment too soon.)

Seriously, people.  Why is this an emergency?  The private sector has been dealing with job losses for four years.  No one really cared.  Now that the government sector is affected it's the end of the world!  I'm sorry if that offends any government employee reading this, but you need to understand:  GOVERNMENT is nothing without taking from the private sector.  And it needs to go on a diet.

But if you had any doubt that President Obama was happy inflicting pain, well think again.  When in the history of the greatest country on earth, have you seen a President so anxious to make you and me hurt?  I would bet never.  The wait is over....We have officially elected a man that hates America to the highest office in the land. 

Read below my friends...They want you to hurt.  They need to manufacture the pain they've claimed will occur if the sequestration was allowed to proceed.  In other words,  they know they went overboard.  What a shame..

Email tells feds to make sequester as painful as promised

The Obama administration denied an appeal for flexibility in lessening the sequester’s effects, with an email this week appearing to show officials in Washington that because they already had promised the cuts would be devastating, they now have to follow through on that.
In the email sent Monday by Charles Brown, an official with the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service office in Raleigh, N.C., Mr. Brown asked “if there was any latitude” in how to spread the sequester cuts across the region to lessen the impacts on fish inspections.

He said he was discouraged by officials in Washington, who gave him this reply: “We have gone on record with a notification to Congress and whoever else that ‘APHIS would eliminate assistance to producers in 24 states in managing wildlife damage to the aquaculture industry, unless they provide funding to cover the costs.’ So it is our opinion that however you manage that reduction, you need to make sure you are not contradicting what we said the impact would be.”
“This email confirms what many Americans have suspected: The Obama administration is doing everything they can to make sure their worst predictions come true and to maximize the pain of the Sequester cuts for political gain,” said Rep. Tim Griffin, Arkansas Republican.
