Any reining in of the Fedzilla is a good thing in my book. Let the sequestration begin!

I'll be ducking out for a while but will check in periodically the rest of the day.

FREEP THIS POLL ***PING!*** FRmail me if you
want to be added or removed from the Fearless Poll-
Freeping Freepers Ping list. (multiple votes using
multiple internetz devices are allowed!) And be sure to
ping me to any polls that need Freepin', if I miss them.
(looks like a medium volume list) (gordongekko909,
founder of the pinglist, stays on the list until his ghost
signs up for the list)

I'll be handling the ping list for a few days while Dynachrome sojourns for a while.

Everyone needs to correct the false narrative of "Spending Cuts" and issue the correct "Increase Reduction" !

Not one single dept. will recieve a penny less next year than this year, each dept. in fact will recieve increase funding. ..just 2% less.

And the Rats and MSM are selling this false narrative as the end of world.

Now up to 85% YES. This is a surprisingly high number to me. I was pleased to see it at 74% in your earlier post.

Since there are no cuts, the poll makes zero sense.

Remember. They are NOT cuts! They are simply a reduction in the amount that will be spent. Spending, sadly, will still increase.

Of course. Its the only way any cuts will ever be made, notwithstanding the whining and lying from such pathetic morons and political hacks like LaHood. What a disgrace!!

Today the news was reporting that smaller airports might have to shut down if sequestration hits. All this “whoa is us” and “doom and gloom” opens up exactly one question: HOW AND WHEN DID WE PUT OURSELVES IN SUCH A POSITION THAT IF THE FED IS SHY A FEW BUCKS OUR ENTIRE ECONOMY SHUTS DOWN?????

Once again, the Founders are rolling in their graves.

I don’t think it is enough. I say cut EVERYONE 20 percent from Social Security, Welfare, Food Stamps, Unemployment, states that receive welfare, tax write offs, EVERYTHING should be included. This way EVERYONE has to deal with this. 800,000 people feeling this is NOT enough. People need to find out just how awful Obama is and this is NOT even near enough to prove it.

Tucson leans pretty far Left and both polls were there so I’m pleased with the results too.

LOL. If only I could write the polls.

I’m pretty sure I know what the poll writers want for results. If they get them they use the results to push their agenda. I like trying to deny them that option.

I remember seeing a tag line here that said, “The Founders would be shooting by now. “ Hard to disagree with that.

Now 92% to 7% with the usual 1% folk who have an empty cavity between their ears but steel feel the compulsion to respond to a survey.
