    Question What sequestration won't cut

    Abortions. http://www.plannedparenthoodaction.o...-fiscal-cliff/

    Planned Parenthood will not skip one single baby but will cut preventative care and everything else they can find as long as they don't miss one single human life.

    In other circles, ask Obama, how many White House staff he plans on laying off. Curb his Vacation Queen? Cut NPR and the Arts?

    If he is going to cut border patrols and federal officers, does this mean we can now drill for oil in the Gulf alongside all the other countries already drilling there?

    Does this mean all the ATF, Homeland Security and IRS dogs will go home and not bug us?

    Does this mean they will have to cancel that hugh order to Homeland Security for "assault weapons" for their *personal defense*, baby killing high capacity magazines, and massive quantities of ammo?

    How many Congressional Staff get laid off?

    Do they turn down the thermostats in federal buildings?

    So much BS...

    Let me point out another budget item that could be dumped like a hot potato! He keeps saying cut Military.... Then why did our leaders create "Homeland Security"? That is completely a branch of the Military that is buying up huge amounts of military paraphernalia like it is going out of style, Oh wait, it is going out of style. Or at least they are trying to make it all illegal. As another post pointed out recently, HLS has purchased something like 1.6 BILLION rounds of ammunition. The hardware is out of this world as well. That is enough rounds to shot every American 6 times. Why do they need all that ammo........Civil unrest? How stinking much is that costing?
    They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither safety nor liberty.

    Right on Heartman !

    Obama wants to appear to be pro-military but as soon as this financial BATTLE is over, he WILL cut the military.
    That is the main reason Chuck Hagel was appointed. He is a puppet for Obama. He will declare that he will cut the WASTE from the military when he will actually cut serious defenses....
    Just a prediction...

    Carter gutted the military and rebuilding it was what cost Reagan in spending he didn't want. We were still rebuilding when Sadam invaded Kuwait. One of the problems was the shortage of ships and planes to concentrate all the materiel needed quickly enough. We simply did not have the logistics at that point. Between Gulf Wars, Slick Willy tried to minimize the military again. Newt and the Contract with America restrained him a bit but when Bush went into Iraq he had to wait until we had replaced all those cruise missiles Clinton fired at the aspirin factory to divert attention from his Impeachment hearings.

    This Chuckster is another monster who will gut the military esp. our Nukes and leave us waaaay too thin. He should never have been recommended must less confirmed. History will convict Obama and his minions including McCain and Lindsay Graham.

    One of the things Carter did was can career guys screwing them out of their retirements. Lots of guys canned with just a year or two to go. Also, veterans will really get screwed on their VA benefits--not just medical but mortgage guarantees. You wait.

    Actually Bush had to wait until they were shipped from Afghanistan along with the other military and intelligence assets stripped from that vital combat zone.

    Thankfuly we had Obama to clean up Bush's mess and liquidate Bin Laden.

    Bush 2 had to clean up Clinton's gutting the military AND clean up Afghanistan and Iraq.

    Actually the armed forces reduction was a Bush1 initiative approved by both parties.



    AND clean up Afghanistan and Iraq.
    .
    Two appallingly mismanged expeditions dumped on the next guy can hardly be described as cleaned up.
