BUDGET CUTS MUST START IN THE WHITE HOUSE (with their pays and their perks) IF THOSE PEOPLE CANNOT LIVE ON THEIR MILLIONS HOW CAN THEY BE EXPECTED TO BALANCE THE BUDGET (all retired presidents no longer receive retirement money, nor their wives.. we owe them nothing) They need to be in our social security programs and medical programs ect. they are people like you and I they have forgotten that; they think they are gods LOL they need humbled desperately NEVER GIVE UP YOUR GUNS!

Republicans are so DUMB!! I'm watching this special about the Iraq war. Bush really pushed for this war and estimated it to last 18 months and it lasted 9 years!! Sadam Hussein and Osama Bin Laden HATED each other!! They HAD no connection and there were NO weapons of mass destruction! What's worse, a stimulus bill for the auto workers or a war with no justification? Actually the Bush administration should be charged for murder!!

NO my tiny minded little dude. the first thing that's going to get cut is ALL of that wasteful spending over at defense. That's a good thing though.

HOOOHOOOO this is gonna be fun.

"President Obama has to deal with the NeoCon Republicans Congress and Faux News reports of the impending doom. In reality, you can not shutdown the federal government, and this is just another cry of wolf in the wind. This will be another victory for President Obama"

O dear, how do you even talk to some one that says things like this? Warren proud is an empty shell.

First6 thing that needs cut is the cyber warrior program. That way we won't have to listen to DOS anymore. He will be forced to think for himself and as a result have absolutely nothing to say.

Russia is buying gold up like there's no tomorrow. The Markets being at an all time high is a mirage. They are being falsely propped up. And when it's time the plug will be pulled on its own. Read up on your rights or lack of them in the occurrence of martial law.

There now see how easy that was for all of us from different political spheres to come together in agreement. LET THE SEQUESTER BEGIN. It is a GREAT BI-PARTISAN piece of legislation passed by the Democratic Senete and by the Republican House. Let's start with those 50%/50% budget cuts and move on to other areas of debate like immigration reform and gun show registration laws. Lets get Hagel confirmed and on the job over at Defense. He is for cutting the defense budget anyhow so this SEQUESTER thing will just make it easier for him to accomplish his goals. Kinda Cool how everything is coming together here.

The sequestration does not actually reduce government , it only reduces the RATE OF INCREASE in government spending.

Since the campaigner-in-chief won't stay in DC and govern, but instead, chooses a never ending series of road trips to promote his purposefully divisive transformational issues, the sequester is the only game in town to at least slow down the RATE of increase in federal spending.

It is apparent that no one inside the beltway has any interest in trying to live within any budget constraints.

The sequester was what Obama wanted, now he acts like he never heard of it,

The politically challenged poster's to this article are best exemplified by reading "ihatetheblues" comments.

Need I say anymore.

Im not promoting treason. I'm warning you of it occurring everyday. They even go on your tv and act like they are helping you.

About the dollar, I dont want it to collapse. It would be chaos on a scale unseen before. However, when one looks at history and sees why other fiat currencies have failed....we're doin all the whys my man.

I view everything as "we the people". thats just how I am, its how I was raised. the people and individual liberty come first...always!

i would gladly defend not only my individual liberty, but my neighbors as well, including yours. thats just the way it is.

however, what good does me defending your liberties do anybody, if you are too scared to defend your own?

politicians/lawyers are destroying the country. period.

I see you are out promoting Treason again unitedfortruth. You seem to relish and support the idea that the American dollar might be replaced as the worlds trading currency. Are you really so jaded as to want that to happen so that in your mind the American citizens will somehow be punished for not listening to your repeated hate posts. It truly is sad that you only have enough wisdom to be a P.I.T.A.

Our good-for-nothing president deserves nothing except impeachment for being a traitor to the United States Constitution. Pelosi should have to pay for the jet that she did not need; and all raises and perks for the puffed up lawmakers should be revoked. ALL OF THEM SHOULD TAKE PAY CUTS IMMEDIATELY. These people are no better than you and I just because of their education or wealth or job description. They are suppose to put the good of the nation before themselves; yet they USE the tax payers for personal gain and power. What has happened to "We the People"? Still divided because of race. OMG Divided we fall...we must take back our country. Entitlements...those rich pricks on the hill think they are entitled to their raises and perks. THEY ARE NOT!! Even the sickening Obamas believe they are entitled to as many vacations as they want. THEY ARE NOT!! This is not a game. These people are ruining our lives, our freedoms, and our pursuit for happiness, while they live in extra

You stupid people. The president is on vacation because the Republicans took their ball and went home for 10 days. You didn't mention that fact.

Two words describe the problems in this country: Republican obstructionism.

We must heed Mr. Obama's warnings and not cut one dime from the federal government's 4 trillion dollar budget, otherwise.....

"...this city(nation) is headed for a disaster of biblical proportions... real wrath-of-God type stuff!...Fire and brimstone coming down from the sky! Rivers and seas boiling!...Forty years of darkness! Earthquakes, volcanoes!...The dead rising from the grave!...Human sacrifice! Dogs and cats, living together! Mass hysteria!"

Who you gonna call?
