Obama's Sequester Cuts Wounded Warrior Caretakers
Furlough letters are going out to civilian employees who care for the nation's wounded warriors at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda. [...] The furloughs will begin July 8 and stem from the automatic budget cuts from sequestration. Out of the Department of Defense's 800,000 civilian workers, about 68,000 are exempt from the furloughs. Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel has said furloughs will save the department $1.8 billion.But don't worry! The sequester cuts won't affect Michelle Obama's extended vacation.
This is merely a ploy to make those who back the sequester look bad. Besides you're all racists for not wanting to spend 1.5 trillion we don't have.

Obamacare is for those of a particular group. It's obvious that those that look like Obama's son if he had one will benefit the most and those who don't will be paying for it.
I will admit to the fact that the freebee programs started many years ago. Roosevelts time. The American people are as guilty as the leaders they elect and control with the promise of re-election.
In 1958 one in 50 workers received disability benefits. Presently, it's one in 13. Can't blame a president or political party for that. You can blame the lazy people applying for these benefits, the doctors who assist with the paperwork and the government system that allows it. The crime is once a person receives disability benefits he receives them forever. If a back injury heals he still receives the benefits for life. Not only that but it prevents him from going back to work as he will lose those benefits should some government worker get off his ass and investigate.
In 40% of American households the woman is the breadwinner. American men may as well get physically castrated. Mentally they already are.

Add to that the old black woman who plunked herself down infront of a TV all day and didnt do a stitch of work.
Ditch the 7 extra levels of buraecrats and paper shufflers (who sit on their hands). Keep the few people who actually do something and have metrics to record and show what they do for public scrutiny.
No union, no strikes, normalize pay/benefits DOWN to private sector levels.
Revoke those platinum pensions the lefty politicians had no right to saddle the taxpayer with in their attempt to buy votes (confiscate everything the politico who were proven to do that)
a complete enema for the governments and flush the worthless shit out of it from top to bottom starting with the squanderer-in-chief....

All unions are pro democrat party. The union sets the rules. Not the government.Therefore if you have civil service unions you have a government run by democrats. Even if the President is Republican, Independent, whatever.
That is why I'm against unions in civil service.
Damn I wish it would stop raining.
