Another example of the idiocy of the GOP generated sequestation approach to the GWB created deficit. A deficit which they've supported by abusing fillibuster tactics to block all subsequent viable solutions. Their Historical/Hysteria solutions of pennywise and dollar foolish after filling the pockets of their Banking and Wall St cronies are ruining this country.
Are we having fun yet?

Mary, is that satire? If so, excellent job! EVERYONE is to blame for this mess.

The thought I have when I read something like this is kind of tough.
With full recognition of the problems and challenges we face, and with all due respect to the interests of my fellow citizens, here is my only thought:
It saddens and worries me to cut back on services which save lives and protect people. I would gladly sacrifice other social programs in favour of something like this. Because "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness" is in the Declaration of Independence. But quality of life is *our* responsibility as citizens and individuals. And in that view, I think it has more integrity to cut back on social services in favour of public safety.
