This is day 1 of sequestration. Given the head community organizer’s dire predictions concerning the end to life as we have known it if sequestration were to actually come to pass, I thought it would be a good idea to begin a daily sequestration watch. You know, a place where each of us can come to report on the collapse of our city/township, the closing of our fire stations, hospitals, police departments, schools, etc. and to read how those of us that frequent this site are managing to survive.
I guess I should go first. I just came back from a walk along the shore of a lake I live on near Dallas. Saw a game warden talking to some fishermen. The marina where I buy gas for my boat is still pumping gas. Off in the distance I could see the local high school parking lot - it appeared full. And, on top of that, the sky has not yet fallen - oh, but it was overcast and a bit chilly. I just attributed that to the time of year and global warming - or, is it climate change? Silly me.
How is everyone else holding up under the INTENSE pressure brought on by the near imperceptable reduction in the spending INCREASE we are being asked to endure??
Taking a line from Barrack’s idol, FDR - Me thinks the only thing we have to fear is Barrack himself!!
