The Obama administration warned on Friday that across-the-board spending cuts set to take effect in March may result in furloughing every U.S. meat and poultry inspector for two weeks, causing the meat industry to shut down.

By law, meatpackers and processors are not allowed to ship beef, pork, lamb and poultry meat without the Agriculture Department's inspection seal.

The prospect of mass furloughs of meat and food inspectors was part of a broader White House warning about the effects of the potential spending cuts on everyday life. Meatpackers said a shut-down would devastate consumers as well as their industry.

If you dare go for "budget cuts," stand by to get reamed via an evil revenge scheme by "The One."

He Will do this because he can drive the middle class deeper into debt and create a "crisis" and blame the gelding pubbies all at the same time.

This, combined with gas prices creeping higher (he will go for $5 now that he's safely re-elected) will put the average guy into poverty.

Ooooooh! Scare-mongering. Another mainstay tactic of the Left. "Women and children (and the poor) affected the hardest - and the most"". Aren't they always?

Hey, Zero, sequestering was your idea!!!!

It’s already into overdrive. Apparently we won’t have meat, our military will crumble, cats and dogs living together...essentially the worst stuff from the Bible.

This what happens when a society becomes over consumed by their need to be protected from anything that could harm us. We allow the government to become a draconian monster that can destroy society if we try to reign it in from out of control spending.

Those who are willing to give up a portion of their freedoms so that it will be protected from harm will inevitably end up with neither their freedom nor thief safety from harm

Or something in that nature.

Remember Obama’s campaign promise to punish his enemies and get revenge? He’s punishing those who cling bitterly to their guns and religion and getting revenge on his opponents. If some of his supporters suffer, it’s an acceptable cost. Besides, he’ll never be held accountable for any outrage, especially the sheep who believe him to be divine.

Sew divisiveness, doubt, fear. Then only The One and his lackeys will be able to help.
