Hump Day Report: Sequestration & Digging Holes

ALOHA, ALL!!  What is sequestration anyhow?  From Wikipedia:

  • Sequestration (law), the seizure of property
  • Jury sequestration, the isolation of a jury in order to ensure they are not prejudiced by external contact
  • In Scottish law, the term for bankruptcy
  • In U.S. law, a procedure by which an automatic spending cut is triggered, introduced to the federal budget in 1985 by the Gramm–Rudman–Hollings Balanced Budget Act most recently implemented in the Budget Control Act of 2011
  • In certain cases of public health risk, protective sequestration refers to measures taken to protect a small, defined, and still-healthy population from an epidemic (or pandemic)

There are other definitions.  In science, sequestration means the accumulation of a substance in an organism…they give bile as an example.  Yeah – that works!  Anyhow, for our purposes it’s the definition that has to do with an automatic spending cut (maybe bile accumulation, too.) But this automatic cut will gut our national defense.  Preezy thinks it’s no big deal.  Just another way he doesn’t know how to act like an American (thank you, John Sununu!)  Anyhow, Congress is throwing down the gauntlet and asking the Blamer-in-Chief specifically where these defense cuts are being made.  Could get interesting:  Congress Rightly Seeks Details On Defense Devastating Sequestration   and House Passes Bill Demanding Sequester Details From Obama

Batman’s Bane – not what you’ve heard.  Creator says:  “Bane is an Occupy Wall Street Type – Romney Is More Like Bruce Wayne”  “In an exclusive interview he pointed out that he and collaborator Graham Nolan created the “Bane” character in 1992, Dixon told Schnitt, “Graham and I are both staunch conservatives, so from our angle, there’s no liberal agenda. I’m a life-long right-wing extremist.”  Ha Ha Ha!!!  Another Team Obama propaganda fail!

GOTTA LOVE SOCIAL MEDIA!  The “you didn’t build it yourself” meme has exploded on Twitter and Facebook.  A few of my favorite images:  

And from our friends at The Looking Spoon

This one wins the prize!

SEALs speaking out!!!!  Special Operations For America  “Ryan Zinke, an ex-Navy SEAL and Montana State Senator, announced the launch of Special Operations for America, a political action committee dedicated to “the election of Mitt Romney and like-minded candidates.  Navy SEALs, Special Operations Personnel and Veteran’s across America have been outraged since Barack Obama conveniently took credit for killing Osama Bin Laden for political gain,” a statement announcing the launch of SOFA said. “The active duty military has no voice as they are forbidden to publicly engage in the political campaign process and it is career suicide for senior military leaders to speak out against the President.”  Check out the site (Shaka to Carl for the link.)

MUST-SEE VIDEO – JAMES O’KEEFE AND PROJECT VERITAS EXPOSE MORE CORRUPTION!  Undercover reporters posing as “Earth Supply and Renewal” — group dedicated to digging holes and filling them back in, meet with Labor Bosses, NY Legislator, and former NY Assemblyman, who tell them how to secure funding for “Bullshit” Green jobs.  

Final Thought:  “Together, we’ll dig this economy out of the ditch and then we’ll fill it back in again.”  Earth Supply and Renewal

  1. Tom says :

    Thank you for addressing “the economy” from the only important angle–the budget impact on national defense. Certain, uh, types will argue that economic prosperity must come before military power–until the next 9/11.

    Yeah, reality has a way of changing attitudes very quickly.
