The Sky Has Not Fallen! The Sky Has Not Fallen!

Musings of a Mad Conservative: So I rose this morning to the sounds of birds chirping on their annual flight from South to North. The sky was a perfect shade of blue, and the traffic lights all were in perfect operating condition for my daily trek towards productivity. I counted three police vehicles, all of them being driven by peace officers. I also confirmed with my local fire department that they were indeed open and just waiting for some actual emergency to happen so that they might be able to spring into action. I saw a line of cars at several McDonald’s restaurants, Gas stations were open for those motorists who needed to fill their tanks, and both television and radio stations were telling me all I never wanted to know about current events. In short, life is happening today, much as it has since that early Spring morning almost 50 years ago when I made my entrance into this world.

Welcome to, "gasp!" Sequestration day, plus 4. Just like the great Gulf Oil spill disaster of 2010, the ill effects of Chicken Little episode number 964 have been greatly overblown. (Before the usual suspects of Liberal America start bunching their panties into that irretrievably uncomfortable wad, I know that the oil spill was not a good thing. That being said, even you guys have to admit that the predictions of all life ending for every species of animal and plant in that region have not become reality. Fishermen never stopped fishing, and the owners of beach resorts opened their businesses immediately after the episode ended. Further, any stories that we’ve heard about actual problems have been few, and not at all that terrible, in fact, I’m not really sure that there have been any permanent ill effects at all.)

Rest assured that whatever shuts down in our Government, and who ever may find themselves temporarily out of work, back pay and postdated restitution will be made or arranged for. In effect, this is nothing more than a paid vacation for every poor civil servant, who by the way statistically speaking, probably is remunerated at a rate 40% greater than their private sector counterpart to begin with, who finds him or herself sent home as a result. What’s important to remember in the coming days of news reports desperately seeking any kind of human suffering that can be found and then blamed upon those evil Republicans, is that our President’s Constitutional duty is as our nation’s chief executive. When any organization cuts its budget, it is the executives of that organization who determine where and how deeply to make those cuts. When Barack Obama goes about the business this week ensuring that the cuts are felt hardest of all within those areas of government that most people agree are the essential services that government provides, please use your head and realize that that particular cut was Barack Obama’s doing, and nobody else’s. There are plenty of other places where the cuts could have been made, and as long as I can tune in NPR and listen about or latest gift of weapons and such to the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and Libya, I would say that we haven’t come anywhere near eliminating the unnecessary that should have gone long before we got to the police and firefighters that our President has been trotting out onto stages that he’s appeared on during his taxpayer funded campaign tour.

Elections have consequences, and Barack Obama’s rampage to destroy America is one we’ve earned by electing this Man and his band of minions. The EPA, Departments of Education, Energy, Obamacare, Dodd Frank, are all relatively new sources of government largess that have done not one single positive thing for our national well being. I bet we could lose those boondoggles and suffer not one single negative consequence, and all of that before the first policeman loses his job.

Let’s just remember, as Obama talks Sequester doom he gave $250 Million to Egypt, a little like interrupting his impassioned gun violence campaign to for a vacation and some golf lessons, and when leftist media icon, Bob Woodward, challenged Obama on Sequestration, reminding America that it was Obama’s own creation, the White House quickly diverted the conversation by attacking him hoping the  low-informed voters who re-elected Obama would focus there instead of on the truth or details.  After all, you wouldn’t want them to notice that the Team Obama and not the Republicans are the bad guys.

Watch the other hand… the airline industry says “no” delays today due to Sequestration spending cuts… as Janet Napolitano tried to tap dance and say there were reported airline delays… all over the county, but then had no real details and said he had to check for ‘specific” examples.

About Ask Marion

I am a babyboomer and empty nester who savors every moment of my past and believes that it is the responsibility of each of us in my generation and Americans in general to make sure that America is as good or even a better place for future generations as it was for us. So far... we haven't done very well!! Favorite Quotes: "The first 50 years are to build and acquire; the second 50 are to leave your legacy"; "Do something that scares you every day!"; "The journey in between what you once were and who you are becoming is where the dance of life really takes place". At age 62 I find myself fighting inoperable uterine Cancer and thanks to the man upstairs and the prayers from so many people including many of my readers from AskMarion and JustOneMorePet... I'm beating it. After losing our business because of the economy and factors related to the re-election of President Obama in 2012 followed by 16-mos of job hunting, my architect-trained husband is working as a trucker and has only been home approximately 5-days a month since I was diagnosed, which has made everything more difficult and often lonely... plus funds are tight. Our family medical deductible is 12K per year for two of us; thank you ObamaCare. But thanks to donations from so many of you, we are making ends meet as I go through treatment while taking care of my father-in-law who is suffering from late stage Alzheimer's and my mother-in-law who suffers from RA and onset dementia as well as hearing loss, for which there are no caretaker funds, as I continue the fight here online to inform and help restore our amazing country. And finally I need to thank a core group of family, friends, and readers... all at a distance, who check in with me regularly. Plus, I must thank my furkids who have not left my side through this fight. You can see them at JustOneMorePet.
