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.

So! We can all become vegetarians, like Hitler.
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.

The revolution must start now or the communists will take all of our freedoms. This communists government must be removed from power.

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.
Just adopt a shelter dog and pretend you are Obama.
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.
But, but, what about the Chilrun and women and their EBT cards???? What WILL THEY EAT????
I may have to learn to like clams after all...
