Did the Army staff mention that the Kenyan Assclown was the motivating force behind the cuts? Did they mention the assclown’s party refused to consider targeted cuts—via a bill passed TWICE by the Republicans in the House of Representatives?

word floating around the Army areas of the Pentagon is that the Army will furlough folks 2 hours a day, four days a week and have one full 8 hour day, that way the Army will be able to show it can work every day despite the furlough. And I’m not joking on this one. The Navy and the Air Force want to close all operations every Friday.

Meanwhile this pap was excerpted from a memorandum Panetta sent out on the way out the door. Self serving pos he is...

MEMORANDUM FOR DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE CIVILIAN EMPLOYEES
SUBJECT: Preparations for Potential Sequestration on March 1 and Furlough Notifications
For more than a year and a half, the President, the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and I have repeatedly voiced our deep concerns over the half a trillion dollars in automatic across-the-board cuts that would be imposed under sequestration and the severe damage that it would do to both this Department and our national defense.
