    In truth, Tig,
    “no man is without sin”.
    Try listening more to NPR and less to RWNJ news.

    I’d hate to see ignorance and fear cause this…its our airlines and our nation….
    Maybe this patriot act should be scuttled and replaced with Israeli advice..
    Intelligence over fear…

    Those are Senior Congressmen and Senators jumping ship.
    The Sequester’s are going to make Re-election tough.

    Bipartisanship.
    As was TARP, Iraq War.
    And last year’s rush to appease public outrage with STOCK (Stop Trading on Congressional Knowledge) Act.
    And last week’s quiet rush to remove it’s teeth.

    This is so real, why just use the sequester to cut back an over reaching EPA or IRS.

    the Sequester was Obama’s idea and Obama’s proposal.
    Congress voted for it, figuring an agreement on spending would prevent it.
    Obama was “my way or the highway”…more taxes and token “cuts”, some of his were Fake “cuts”…
    Even under the triggered Sequester, the agencies had authority to prioritize spending and to cut less important duties; but Varvel is correct,
    the Obama administration chose the most visible, the most public, the most bothersome cuts to hurt the people who use services such as airline flights….some for important business trips…so Obama is harming the economy for his Agenda and Political Purposes.

    But NPR tells us that Obama, halo and all, has no sin.

    bho says cut only where most hurt can be done - bloomberg radio said the cut to meat inspectors hours were less than bonuses paid top execs

    The sequester was to “satisfy” Congressional Republicans: period. Next, the first place all agencies HAVE to look is reducing personnel costs with RIF, furlough, or not filling open positions. It’s happened many times. If you want to know who REALLY screwed up air traffic by firing controllers to “bust unions”, look no further than Ronnie Ray-gun.

    Mr. King said, about 1 hour ago
    @disgustedtaxpayer
    “Just because your keep repeating those misrepresentations of the facts, it won’t make them true. Maybe with your close circle of friends at the local bar, or when you call in to A.M. talk radio, but not here.”
    -
    Mr.King, you are factually wrong on all counts.
    *I do not misrepresent the facts I found from reliable sources and I expect my words to be justified in my heavenly judgment.
    *I never have been in a bar for companionship, I am age 80 and a great grandmother and I gave my life to Jesus in 1963, and frequenting alcoholic places is not on God’s approved list.
    *I no longer phone in to talk radio, it is too much of a stress.
    I post opinion on gocomics instead.

    An apology would be very gentlemanly.

    WSJ 4/24/13…a Senator put his letter to the FAA on his website and then FAA regional employees wrote to blow the whistles on their bosses!
    -
    One emailed “FAA management has stated in meetings that they need to make the furloughs as hard as possible for the public so that they understand how serious it is.”
    (FAA is delaying 6,700 flights a day)
