While we listen to the Lyin’ King,
Who won’t own up to anything
And endure his empty jactitation
We’re hurtling towards sequestration.

I don’t see sequestration as all that evil....I see it as a tool to punish the left for giving us 0 again. The lefties are the ones who want to live off the gov dole.

I thought the “Word” was going to be “vapid”, with your reference to Ms Fairchild.

Oh, I hear you. But you can be sure the cuts will not be where they SHOULD be.

The “across the board” cuts will probably end up being mostly military. JMHO.

jactitation

Jactitation is the process of raising a car with a jack.

On tv, a Barack jactitation
Makes me grab the remote, change the station
I can’t stand all the lying
Blame shifting, denying
It’s a homo-nym, Obamanation

I wish the republicans would hold firm but the media is not going to admit this was obams idea and remind the population of his November speech claiming he didn’t want to change anything on sequestration - it was inevitable if they couldn’t come to some spending cut agreement..... but the government run media isn’t going to tell that.

Betsy schools Rick "Yeah, that's the ticket" Scott on his jactitation of why he is caving to the socialist plan. After all, she wrote the book.

You’ll know when it happens by all the gnashing of teeth.

If the GOP were smart they would do a daily “here’s something wasteful that wasn’t cut” in order to highlight the choices made by executive branch.

Like George Will said, it defies reason that we.must stop a carrier from deploying to the Persian Gulf because of a 2% cut. That we must close airport security and control towers.

Every working American took a 2% cut this year. It’s impossible for ourgov’t to also cut 2% without losing essential services?

of course it isn’t! even gov’t workers would tell you that! it’s a false choice set up by the obams.

but as a point of fact gov’t workers took the same 2% cut that everyone else did.

Back from running a few errands...

Obama’s minions let his lies
Continue without any rebuke,
And the constant jactitation
Just makes me want to puke

If he would just shut up
For maybe a couple of days
Some of the rats in his party
Might actually escape the maze

If they did, they might wake up
Into the right here and now-
And find out there’s more to eat
Than Obama’s Obedience Chow...

But they are really going to close stuff and lay offpeople tomaximize whining. The GOP needs to counter the decisions made or just get ready to raise taxes again.

Federal employees pay regular SS taxes?

Saw the dumbest thing on news last night. Report that a local sausage maker might have to shut down, at least partially, if fed inspectors arent available.

Go ahead Obama. Close down factories and cause a meat shortage.

How’s your $100,000 dog walker?

So its fear mongering then to try to get the rank and file to CARE bc I really think people do not give a crap. So just like saying teachers will be laid off and there are no fed employed teachers.

I believe Secret is correct-there is a meat inspector who lives in the neighborhood-she is paid by the Texas dept of ag-she hasn’t said anything about being out of a job...

There have been so many lies told, and things are just so damn bad that I honestly don’t know one single person who is not just fresh out of any kind of “caring” beyond their own families and neighborhoods, at least out here in the hinterlands-and at least half of the kids here go to the nearby Christian school or are home/cottage schooled anyway. I’ve no idea what it is like in the city, though...

I just saw on the newstrailer on my homepage that some Aussie billionaire is building a replica of the Titanic-called Titanic II-and plans for it to sail the route of the original on it’s maiden voyage. After all, what could possibly go wrong...
