Obama warns ´people will lose jobs´
if budget cuts take effect next
week as he urges Republicans
to accept higher taxes

Daily Mail [UK], by Hayley Peterson

Original Article

President Obama warned on Tuesday that ´people will lose their jobs´ and ´the unemployment rate might tick up again´ if steep budget cuts take effect next week. He urged Republicans to agree to a plan proposed by Senate Democrats that would partially offset $85 billion in ´sequestration´ cuts scheduled to take effect next week through new tax revenues. ´So far at least, the ideas that the Republicans have proposed ask nothing of the wealthiest Americans or the biggest corporations,´ Obama said. ´So the burden is all on the first responders, or seniors or middle class families.´

Comments:
While the topic itself is of great interest and comment, please look at the photos. In some of them you see Obama with very sleepy, heavy-lidded eyes. I did notice this on photos of him returning from vacation yesterday but put it down to his golf marathon. At best I´d guess a bit of Botox but at worst. . . .

Obama´s on auto-pilot: "So far at least, the ideas that the Republicans have proposed ask nothing of the wealthiest Americans or the biggest corporations"

This is not substantive. This is usual blather.

Rain Man recited ´Who´s On First?´ as his little calming mantra when he got agitated.

Similarly, Obama (and Reid and Pelosi and the filth known as Keith Ellison) can´t talk about any serious subject without invoking firemen, policemen, teachers and any other job commonly found as a Fisher Price toy figure. Kids starve, seniors die, etc. etc. It´s beyond insulting and infantile - it´s laughable. But morons aren´t known for their sense of humor.

I have read that these are not cuts, only reductions from the "baseline" which assumes an increase. Hope I am wrong and these are real cuts.

Didn´t we just have a massive wave of tax increases which will provide more revenue (at least on progressive paper)? Oh, that´s right, he´s already spent that.

Blame Obama.
No one disputes the fact that no one wanted sequestration, or that ultimately a bipartisan vote in Congress led to passage of the Budget Control Act. But the president categorically said that sequestration was “something that Congress has proposed.”
Woodward’s detailed account of meetings during the crisis, clearly based on interviews with key participants and contemporaneous notes, make it clear that sequestration was a proposal advanced and promoted by the White House.
In sum: Gene Sperling brought up the idea of a sequester, while Jack Lew sold Harry Reid on the idea and then decided to use the Gramm-Hollings-Rudman language (which he knew from his days of working for Tip O’Neill) as a template for sequester. The proposal was so unusual for Republicans that staffers had to work through the night to understand it.
Oddly, Lew in Tampa on Thursday, publicly asserted the opposite: “There was an insistence on the part of Republicans in Congress for there to be some automatic trigger…. [It] was very much rooted in the Republican congressional insistence that there be an automatic measure at the end.”

This prompted Woodward to go over his notes and interviews once again, to make sure he had gotten it right.

“After reviewing all the interviews and the extensive material I have on this issue, it looks like President Obama told a whopper,” Woodward said. “Based on what Jack Lew said in Florida today, I have asked the White House to correct the record.”
We had been wavering between Three and Four Pinocchios. But in light’s of Lew’s decision to doubledown on Obama’s claim, we agree it’s a whopper.
Four Pinocchios

The fact is, jobs are going to be lost anyway and that´s why Obama is not even trying to avoid this. He needs it to cover his behind as we go back into recession.

"Unemployment rate might tick up,again" is code that the unemployment rate is going up no matter what the sequestration does. As rate rises to 8.5% from 7.9%, Obama will blame GOP for this rather than his policies and the economic uncertainty he creates.

As to first responders standing behind the messiah, they will be receiving pensions 2 to 3 times the average annual wages of American workers, with their health care paid by taxpayers. They are confident that Obama will bail out the bankrupt state & muni pension that will be paying them $135,000 per year pensions. As always, the joke is on us.

Same old FUD. The nation will collapse if you cut one public employee. And if it is a unionized public employee the whole world disolves into anarchy.

And layoff a defense worker? Sure enough, we eill br invaded next week.

I don´t care anymore. Let´s find out.

The fact is that Democrats almost totally control Washington. The GOP House can´t pass anything and it can´t stop an EO and it cannot block an appointment and it can´t stop the executive departments or even get honest anwers from them.

The House can´t even stop O from killing people with Drones, in the US or elsewhere. And Holder totally controls the DOJ. Nothing will happen Obama dislikes.

What happens will be 99% Obama´s wishes. There is no political or moral reason why the GOP should abet this administration.

Essentially, unless the GOP caves on tax hikes, Obama will have someone beat the living tar out of the people, blame the GOP for it, and get full support from that press for his version of the ´truth´. Isn´t that just dandy.

I said this before the Republican should fold on the economy, let the dumbocrats OWN the economy. More revenue will only rake even more money out of the private sector leaving less for us to spend on things, slowing the economy, slowing the amount of tax revenues the government actually takes in and making matters worse, it´s the Republican only chance to retake the senate in 2014 and the white house in 2016.

When Zippy suggests cuting foreign aid instead of domestic cuts, get back to me.

Even if he cuts delivering anchor babies, we would save a bundle.

The price of chocolate could soar over the next few years as surging demand puts further pressure on the global cocoa crisis--and experts predict the demand could become unsustainable by 2020. Experts are warning that a growing taste for chocolate in Asia--particularly in China--means cocoa farmers will need more help to provide a greater amount to export or manufacturers will be forced to use less cocoa in their products. It is predicted chocolate prices will soar to keep up with the rising demand--otherwise consumers will increasingly be offered products filled with substitutes, such as nuts and fruits, to ‘pack out’ chocolate bars.

In 1925, Rudyard Kipling wrote an uncharacteristically restrained and sombre short story called The Gardener. It tells of a woman’s search for her illegitimate son, who goes missing in action on the Western Front. After the Armistice, she learns that he has been killed, and is buried in a military cemetery. Arriving there, she finds a man planting flowers in the earth and asks him where she might find her “nephew”. The man looks at her “with infinite compassion,” and tells her “Come with me, and I will show you where your son lies”. As she leaves the graveyard, she

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer.

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent
