BUT... BUT...* S*E*Q*U*E*S*T*O*R...???* HEY, FOLKS... GOOGLE SEPTEMBER 11, 2012... GOOGLE "ATTACKS ON AMERICAN EMBASSY CAIRO"... GOOGLE "EGYPTIAN GOVERNMENT STANDS BY AS CROWDS STORM U.S. EMBASSY."(*SPITTING ON THE GROUND*)
http://www.fox4now.com/news/local/194396721.htmlFORT MYERS, Fla. - A 16-year-old Cypress Lake High School student who wrestled a loaded revolver away from a teen threatening to shoot is being punished.* YEP! YOU READ THAT RIGHT!The student grappled the gun away from the 15-year-old suspect on the bus ride home Tuesday after witnesses say he aimed the weapon point blank at another student and threatened to shoot him.[A]uthorities...confirm the Revolver was loaded. According to the arrest report the suspect (who Fox 4 is not naming because he is a minor) was "pointing the gun directly" at another student and "threatening to shoot him."* HMM... SOUNDS LIKE DISARMING HIM WAS A GOOD MOVE... (*SCRATCHING MY HEAD*)That's when the student we spoke with says he and others tackled the teen and wrestled away the gun. The next day the school slapped him with a three day suspension.(*HEADACHE*)According to the mother, the school suspended her son because he refused to cooperate in the investigation.* HMM... SOUNDS LIKE A MATTER BETWEEN THE BOY AND THE POLICE. BUT, HEY... I'LL TRY TO KEEP AN OPEN MIND HERE. Despite the fact the suspect pointed a loaded gun at another student and threatened to shoot, authorities charged him with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon "without intent" to kill.* NICE... (*SMIRK*)Authorities were unable to watch the school bus surveillance video because the cameras weren't working.(*CLAP...CLAP...CLAP*)The 15-year-old suspect was arrested and charged with posession of a firearm on school property and assault with a deadly weapon without intent to kill.* SO... 15 YEARS AT HARD LABOR? (*SMIRK*) NAH... I'M GUESSING HE WALKS. PROBATION. PERHAPS COMMUNITY SERVICE.* FOLKS... ASSUMING MY PREDICTION COMES TO PASS... IT SEEMS TO ME THAT THE PROBLEM HERE ISN'T STRICT ENOUGH GUN LAWS. (*SHRUG*)
http://blog.heritage.org/2013/02/26/sequestration-where-could-we-possibly-cut-the-federal-budget/?utm_source=Newsletter&utm_medium=EmailIf you had to cut your family’s budget, where would you cut? Would you immediately start starving your children and stop wearing shoes? Of course not. You would look at the extras in your life — whether they were coffee shop lattes, movie tickets, or restaurant meals.It’s a good thing the President wouldn’t be handling your budget. As Dan Holler of our sister organization, Heritage Action for America, has said: “If President Obama were making the decision for your family… he’d tell you to stop buying gas for your car and explain how you could only eat five days a week.”* FOLKS. IT'S NOT FUNNY. THIS "HUMOR" IS BASED UPON THE PRESIDENT'S OWN THREATS, PRONOUCEMENTS, AND THE IRRATIONAL AND IRRESPONSIBLE DECISIONS OF HIS CABINET SECRETARIES!Now that President Obama has turned against sequestration, he is suggesting that spending cuts to federal agencies must result in dire consequences. Firefighters, emergency responders, and teachers will all be cut, he claims. Media outlets have played up these sob stories, copying White House releases in their local news stories and soliciting sad testimonials from people who supposedly would be affected by these cuts.(*NOD*)But the question remains: Why would federal agencies cut their most vital assets instead of trimming around the edges? (*SHRUG*)After all, the sequestration cuts are only 2.4% of federal spending.* FOLKS... EVEN THIS IS A DISTORTION! THE SEQUESTRATION "CUTS" ONLY FROM PROPOSED INCREASES IN FEDERAL SPENDING! EVEN IF THESE "CUTS" STICK... THE CBO ESTIMATES THAT FISCAL YEAR 2013 FEDERAL SPENDING IS GOING TO BE $15 BILLION ABOVE FISCAL YEAR 2012 FEDERAL SPENDING! WE'RE BEING PLAYED...!!!
* TWO-PARTER... (Part 1 of 2)http://blog.heritage.org/2013/03/01/obama-spending-taxes-sequestration-obamanomics/?utm_source=Newsletter&utm_medium=Email&utm_campaign=&utm_content=&utm_source=Newsletter&utm_medium=Email&utm_campaign=Morning%2BBellSuppose you desperately needed to lose weight but had a Big Mac with fries and a Coke staring you in the face. You could take your need to diet seriously and say, “No thanks, I’ll have a salad,” or you could decide to reduce the Big Mac meal by 2% — pushing aside a couple French fries and gobbling up the rest.* SOUNDS LIKE A GOVERNMENT PLAN!If you took Option B, how do you think that “diet” would work out for you? Well, that, my friends, is the tale of the sequester that hit us this morning.* LIKE I SAID... A GOVERNMENT PLAN...[T]he White House, with a big assist from sympathetic media, has done all within its considerable powers to make it seem like sequestration means the end of the world. If all you’ve heard is their side, you might be forgiven for thinking that the Mayans were right after all — just off by a couple of months on their prediction of the apocalypse.This political panic needs a little common sense. In the last decade, federal spending has exploded from a $2 trillion budget in 2002 to a $3.5 trillion budget in 2012 — a 75% increase. * AND IF THAT WEREN'T BAD ENOUGH...Over the next 10 years, the budget is projected to grow another 69%...(*PURSED LIPS*)The sequester...still allow[s] a 67% increase over the next 10 years[!]“Sequester” is an awkward word for automatic spending reductions that were decided during negotiations for the 2011 debt ceiling deal, and it is problematic. The reductions leave the largest part of federal spending — entitlements — virtually untouched while deeply cutting into defense priorities.* FOLKS... HERE'S WHERE YOU NEED TO BEWARE THE RIGHT. PENTAGON SPENDING IS BLOATED BECAUSE OUR MILITARY MISSIONS ARE BLOATED. WE NEED TO CUT THE MISSIONS AND CUT THE SPENDING.* NOW... PRIORITIZATION ASIDE... THE OTHER AREA WHERE YOU NEED TO BEWARE THOSE WHO "CONSIDER" THEMSELVES THE RIGHT IS WHEN THEY USE WORDS LIKE "SPENDING REDUCTIONS." AGAIN... ONE MORE TIME... "THE SEQUESTER STILL LEADS TO A 67% INCREASE IN FEDERAL SPENDING OVER THE NEXT TEN YEARS!" HOW AND WHERE DOES THE WORD "REDUCTION" FIGURE INTO THIS REALITY...?!?!* TO BE CONTINUED...
* CONCLUDING... (Part 2 of 2)The President and Congress have had a year and a half to come up with a smarter way to reduce spending, and they have failed.* THAT'S BECAUSE AMERICA IS A SINGLE-OLIGARCHY STATE WHERE THE TWO PARTIES MORE CLOSELY RESEMBLE EACH OTHER THAN ANY IDENTIFIABLE IDEOLOGIES. IN THEORY... VIOLENCE IS THE ONLY ANSWER. But you must remember that we live in a world where Harry Reid’s Senate has not passed a budget in 1,402 days. The sequester is a symptom of Washington’s fiscal cluelessness.* IT'S NOT JUST REID AND THE DEMOCRATS. IT'S BOEHNER AND THE RINOs. It’s time to put our nation on the path to a balanced budget within the next 10 years.* "A PATH..." * "A PATH TO A BALANCED BUDGET..."* "A PATH TO A BALANCED BUDGET WITHIN THE NEXT TEN YEARS..."* FOLKS. VIOLENCE IS THE ONLY ANSWER. THE ABOVE "SUGGESTION" COMES FROM THE HERITAGE FOUNDATION! IF THIS IS THE BEST THEY CAN COME UP WITH...(*SIGHING*) (*CRYING*)So why is President Obama leading a scare campaign filled with untruths about how sequestration will necessitate firing firefighters, cops, and teachers?* BECAUSE HE CAN. BECAUSE IT'S TO HIS POLITICAL BENEFIT AND THE BENEFIT OF THE DEMOCRATS.I’ll tell you why. Because liberals know the Obama tax hikes forced through in January will really hurt the economy. It’s preemptive damage control. The President is trying to blame the sequester for the economic problems his tax hikes will spawn.* YEAH... SURE... THERE'S SOME OF THAT. BUT IT'S MORE WHAT I WROTE.But our struggling economy is the President’s own creation. * THAT... IS... TRUE...!!!His tax hikes — in income taxes, payroll taxes, and ObamaCare taxes — will take $150 billion out of the economy this year alone. The $150 billion doesn’t magically appear in Washington’s bank account without real consequences. It comes out of your paycheck. It means less money for your boss to give you a raise. Small businesses won’t have the money to hire new employees. You’ll have less money to save for your retirement or your child’s college fund.* THIS IS ALL TRUE! (THAT SAID... THE PROBLEM IS THE SPENDING... NOT THE LEVEL OF TAXATION PER SE.)The impact of the tax hikes on the economy is nearly twice as big as the impact of sequestration. Over 10 years, Obama’s tax hikes will suck $2.9 trillion out of the economy.These are the real consequences of Obamanomics. The President’s spending spree is the real problem. His trillion-dollar deficits mean that we can’t just skip a couple of fries — we have to put government on a true spending diet. * AIN'T... GONNA... HAPPEN...
http://cnsnews.com/news/article/cbo-federal-revenue-set-record-2013According to historical tables compiled by the White House Office of Management and Budget, the government has never collected more than the $2.6 trillion it collected in 2007...n its latest Budget and Economic Update, the CBO forecasts that federal revenue will top $2.7 trillion in 2013, slightly higher than the $2.6 trillion the government collected in 2007...* SO TELL ME AGAIN HOW IT'S A REVENUE SHORTFALL... NOT A SPENDING PROBLEM...?!?!

CLICK ON THE ABOVE LINK AND READ THE ARTICLE AND WATCH THE VIDEO. THEN GOOGLE "DHS TANKS"* HERE'S MY POINT, FOLKS: THE AMERICAN MAINSTREAM MEDIA IS NO LONGER IN THE NEWS BUSINESS. NO. I DON'T MEAN THIS LITERALLY. BUT I DO MEAN THAT THE LEVEL OF CENSORSHIP - WHETHER SELF-CENSORSHIP OR IN REACTION TO GOVERNMENT REQUESTS NOT TO PUBLISH - IS REAL AND HAS BEEN STEADILY INCREASING THROUGHOUT THIS CENTURY, PARTICULARLY SINCE OBAMA HAS BECOME PRESIDENT.* WHEN YOU BROWSE THROUGH THE FIRST THREE OR FOUR PAGES OF GOOGLE RESULTS LOOKING FOR THIS STORY IN THE MAINSTREAM PRESS AND CAN'T FIND IT... (*PAUSE*)... SOMETHING IS TERRIBLY WRONG.
