    I still don’t understand how you breath in that fantasy bubble in which you reside.

    “when the Republicans agreed”
    Oh, so of course they’re entirely blameless here. But didn’t Boehner say he got 98% of what he wanted? So did he want this, or was it just not worth his while to fight it?

    If you think “government can never be effective” is a core belief of the GOP, then you know absolutely nothing about the GOP. Which is to be expected from anyone who gets all their… “news” from the Democratic propagandists in the MSM.

    The truth is, this is NOT a crisis. It is a very small decrease in projected spending increases. The further truth is that Obama created this phony-baloney “crisis”, and is now using it to hold America hostage so he can increase taxes and steal more money from people. There is no reason they can’t cut wasteful spending, but instead he is using this to cut spending in ways intended to make people suffer as much as possible so they will pressure Congress into giving him whatever he wants.

    Of course, that’s all talking about ACTUAL reality, not the delusional, bigoted fantasies that Obamatons cling to.

    The fewer the numbers of whacks left the more strident they get. And more out of touch.
    The American majority is going away from the republican extremist views.
    Screaming louder that they are swarming to your side really makes for a foolish statement.
    I do not give my all to either side, but pay attention to actual facts.
    The extremists are on the decline, good bad or indifferent, their numbers are going down.

    “Facts: The Obama administration has cut 1.25 trillion dollars from the Federal budget over the last four years – more than Ronald Reagan, more than either George Bush, more, in fact than any administration ever. Even on a percentage basis it is more than any modern President.

    It has also slowed the growth of overall spending to a level not seen since the Eisenhower administration six decades ago (and Ike did it in the midst of the biggest boom in world history – Obama is operating during the second worst downturn we’ve faced!)

    The government payroll in absolute terms has also fallen to levels as small as the 1950s even though the US population is almost three times the size.

    Those are facts. What is hyperbole – or actually just falsehood – is to say that sequestration “is the only way we will see any budget cuts from this Administration.”

    With a tip of the hat to Cormac of New York.

    The “fantasy world” is the one in which the GOP is anti-government, and the sequester wasn’t Obama’s proposed policy in the first place. As to “deviant”, that would apply to anyone who thinks that unlimited totalitarian government is a GOOD idea, anyone who thinks they are entitled to use violence to control their fellow human beings.

    There is absolutely nothing “delusional” about that. Dems, lefties, and Obama want the government to tax, regulate, and control every thing that every person does. And government IS violence. Every law that is passed, every tax that is levied, is enforced at the point of a gun. Or a sword, or a club, whatever. That is reality. Every time you say you want the government to do something, you are saying you are willing to resort to violence over it. The ideology that is called “liberalism” these days is an ideology that celebrates ignorance, bigotry, and violence. And what those of us who actually wish to retain our human dignity, rather than be degraded to the status of government-owned livestock must do now, is to refuse to obey your Dear Leaders, to stop our cooperation and withdraw our sanction, thus leaving all you looters with a simple choice: either fail and give up, or finally resort to the violence you’ve been trying to pretend you don’t support. All your vile taxes, gun laws, insurance mandates, etc must be destroyed by the means of non-cooperation so that you will be forced to face the violent ugliness of your own souls.

    Radish, the Democrats in the Senate voted for the sequestration 45/6, Yea/Nay.

    “It was OBAMA’s plan.”

    It was not Obama’s plan. It was of a couple of his staffers idea and plan.
    Obama OK’d it so he should accept some responsibility, though.

    “Many conservative facts provided by™.”

    Went there. That’s funny!

    Nope. I got to wondering if there was such a place and and tried the actual address. You get a page that says My Facts and in smaller print “This site for sale”

    How many died after that phony “Mission Accomplished” banner, and how much damage do those same right-wing thought processes intend in the near or distant future?

    So I take it the GOP owns a banner company.
