Obama manufactures a crisis. His lapdog media screams, whines, cries, moans, in general playing its part to support Obama’s further assertion that the monster HE created is going to seriously alter life in the United States.
Yeah. About that.
The ‘sequester’ is going to cut a whole 3% from spending. What’s that mean? Say you’re spending TWICE what you’re bringing in every year and you get a sudden realization that you can’t keep doing this, mainly because your creditors are about to cut off your funds. So you get all remorseful and tell them you’re cutting back. Three percent. Instead of $50,000 a year deficit, you’re only going to overspend $47,000. Won’t that make ’em happy?
Oh, really get them to giggling when you tell them that the cuts you’re taking are going to be food for the baby, Grandma’s medicine, and fixing the hole in the roof. You’re big-screen TV, the cable bill, the Internet, the steak dinners and expensive wines, you’re gonna keep that.
The cartoon below blames this on uninformed voters, but it’s like the Titanic. Even if there was somebody on board who was smart enough to slow down and avoid icebergs, the mistakes of the people in charge took the whole ship down.
