Where Liberty is Reborn

The Morning After

, / 752

So Chicken-Little told us that the sky was falling and for once, under his administration, we didn’t believe him.

We woke up on March 1 and things were basically as they were on February 28. We were still $16 Trillion in debt and rising, we were still spending money on ridiculous things like $50 million dollars to overhaul the uniforms at TSA, DHS is buying ammunition and Mine Resistant Armor Protected Vehicles at rates higher than the military, and to top off all the sky-falling talk from the mouth of our chief executive, The Washington Times reports that “Monday [(March 5, 2013)] marked the first regular workday under sequestration, and federal agencies posted more than 400 job ads by 6 p.m.” The Washington Times story further said that “At the Homeland Security Department, which just days ago announced it was releasing some low-priority illegal immigrants from jails to await removal, the agency in charge of deportations advertised for an assistant to help with deportations. The annual salary for the job is $60,765, enough to detain one immigrant for about 500 days.”

With all the talk about janitors, teachers, air traffic controllers, food inspectors, firefighters, and so many more losing their livelihoods over the $44 Billion cut from the $3.5 Trillion (1.3%) budget, Barack Hussein Obama has decided that the sky will fall even if the sky isn’t falling. Our magnanimous president has decreed in “an email this week [showing] that because they already had promised the cuts would be devastating, they now have to follow through on that.”

Wow, so I guess our President, who says “We will not rest until we are succeeding in generating the jobs that this economy needs (NOVEMBER 2, 2009),” or “We will not rest until we build an economy that’s ready for America’s future (JANUARY 28, 2010),” or “I’m not gonna rest & my administration is not gonna rest in our efforts to help people who are looking to find a job (MARCH 5 2010),” or even, My administration will not rest until every American who is able and ready and willing to work can find a job (JULY 8, 2010)” isn’t really that concerned with our country, our future, or our families.

One thing is for sure, however, he is concerned with Politics, and making decisions like this, to bring as much misery to the American people unnecessarily is by far the worst kind of politics. It reminds me of stories of the old Soviet Union. In the early years, Ukraine refused to communize their farms. Stalin, devoted to the ideal that collective farms were the key to supplying the Soviet Union with the food it needed, killed millions of Ukrainians through starvation. To force his collective farming ideal on the people of the Ukraine, he stole their food, often destroyed it, and sometimes used it to feed people in Russia and elsewhere. But the people of the Ukraine had to suffer because they dared oppose the leader’s ideology for a fictitious Communist Utopia.

    What I don't understand is how and why the Democrats are going along with this type of behavior. How can they seriously believe this is what's best for the country? They should be ashamed of themselves and the president. This can not possibly go well for them come the midterm elections. Such juvenile behavior from those whom are supposed to represent the voters.

      He is a cult of personality. Ask the people who followed Jim Jones to South America...oops, they all followed him to their death...there is no logic with cultish behavior.

      There is no separation of political parties anymore, really. As a whole our nation should not tolerate violations of our Constitution and Bill of Rights, there is no foreign terrorists threats. The threats are all internal, our Federal government being played through UN puppet strings. It does not matter what party has a candidate in office.

  • Quester55 says:

    Well said, however, it seems that only a very few of us have had the time to read your statements. There just seems to be to little concern for the truth , these days.
    However, Like " Rosemarie's Baby", Obama seems to be living an, " Evilly Charmed Life", at our expense.
    That is O.K., Fore one day, He'll offend the wrong enemy & Never see the next day!
    Our country wanted CHANGE, Most lived their lives as Pretending to be more than what they were. They lived way above their means & lay waste to any surplus that we others had built up for the future.
    Now it's GONE! & we owe it to one, Disgusting pile of " S ? ? T "!

    "The budget should be balanced, the treasury should be refilled, public debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and the assistance of foreign lands should be curtailed lest the republic become bankrupt. People must again learn to work instead of living on public assistance." Marcus Tillius Cicero, 55BC

    Well I don't know about you, but my husband is going to be furloughed several days a month for the 22 weeks of the sequester, and will lose 1300 dollars a month in wages starting in late April We still have to pay rent, utilities, insurance, food, gas etc. It's going to be a disaster for my family. So when someone says nothing happened or will happen, think again. It's going to affect all of us one way or another. And this is because of the pissing contest ocurring in Washington DC.

    • Jerry says:


      I am truly sorry your family will feel the pain of this sequester. That being said I don't really understand how you can blame it on a "pissing contest" for your situation. The sequester is a cut in the additional spending of funds, not cuts in current spending. Plus I'm not sure what your husband does for a living but based on your statement he makes about $54.00 an hour ( 1300.00 divided by 24 hrs). Surely with that high of a wage you folks are putting at least something back for such an occurance. The one thing I truly don't understand is that so many Americans seem to think that this country can be fixed without any cost to them. Almost as if the problems only "belong" to the government and not the people. Fact is it will get much worse than this so called sequester and the people had better get to wrapping their heads around that and start preparing.

        Thank you Jerry. I noticed the exhorbitant wage as well. My wife and I live on little more than anonymous will lose in a month. We own a home and 2 cars, and go to movies and dinner just like other people. This seems to me like a perfect example of government excess and the mentality of living beyond your means. Instead of whining about losing $1300 a month, you could start to realize that you are currently part of the problem and begin to help solve our nations issues.

    Sounds Great Joe, The only problem is, The American People have been Conditioned to Believe only the LIES that their Corrupted Leaders Order them to Believe!
    Year after Year, 365 days & nights, we are told over & over, You Need WELFARE, You need The Government to DO YOUR Thinking for YOU! & over 85% of you listen to their garbage!
    Whats worse, Many of you have been so Conditioned that You think that your Likes & Dislikes are your own, In most cases, your Thoughts are started by those you think you can trust, Say, The Government?
    You'd be surprised just how LITTLE Freewill you really have!
    Want to know more, Look up " Subliminal Suggestion", You'll be shocked at what you find.
