Well it happened. It’s March 1. The DEVASTATING, HORRIFIC, ECONOMY DESTROYING SPENDING REDUCTIONS HAVE ARRIVED!!!!
Run for the hills.
The ultra-liberals and the neo-cons are up in arms. The MSM and liberal cartoonists have been shreiking bloody murder for weeks. There will be no teachers, policemen, firemen, food inspectors, or Pentagon paper pushers left. The horror. Obama has described these dreadful spending slowdowns as the end of the world as we know it.
I woke up this morning expecting school to be cancelled for my kids. I expected reports of the Iranian Navy sailing up the Potomac and shelling the capital. The Chinese must be massing their troops to take advantage of the fact that we still spend more on our war machine than the rest of the world combined.
But a funny thing happened. My day is proceeding just like every other day. Traffic was heavy. I’m going to work a full day. Everyone else in the country is experiencing the same thing. Sequestration is a piss in the fucking ocean of debt. It will not impact your daily life one iota. Will a few thousand government drones be laid off? I sure hope so. Will the government run less efficiently because of the layoffs? NO. It will run more efficiently. The savings from withdrawing our troops from Germany and Japan would cover the $50 billion in the blink of an eye.
The horrible spending reductions in 2013 will reduce government spending from $10.41 billion per day to $10.27 billion per day. How will the country survive? For some REAL perspective, the Federal government was spending $7.4 billion per day in 2007. Has your life been improved one iota because the Federal government is spending an extra $3 billion per day of YOUR money? I didn’t think so.
By calling the bluff of Obama, the ultra-libs and the neo-con war mongers, we will see that it is all bluster and bullshit. The ruling oligarchs might crash the stock market to scare the masses, but they probably won’t. The masses don’t own the stocks. The rich pricks who benefit from massive government spending own most of the stocks.
The fear mongerers are being revealed as liars and lovers of spending your money on the things they want.
I sure hope we can make it through the day before the country explodes in hellfire.
