Pentagon informs Congress of
plans to furlough 800K civilians

The Hill [Washington, DC], by Jeremy Herb

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 2/20/2013 1:33:27 PM

The Pentagon notified Congress on Wednesday it will be furloughing its civilian workforce of 800,000 employees if sequestration goes into effect March 1. Defense officials have warned lawmakers that sequestration will devastate the military and lead to a hollow force, but the civilian furloughs will be one of the first major impacts felt by the across-the-board cuts. The Pentagon furloughs will affect civilians across the country. Pentagon officials have said that civilians could face up to 22 days of furloughs, one per week, through the end of the fiscal year in September.

Comments:
The media is right on cue to spread the hysteria and the Republicans will be blamed for all of this.

OK. Cut then. I doubt the government has to lay off 800,000 people to make a 2 percent cut in its budget, and I refuse to be bullied by this regime.

How in the heck can there be 800,000 civilian defense workers? That´s more than the whole Army! Sounds like we need to cut 300k or that are just in the way of the warfighters.

Based on the 800k number, looks like every employee will work a four day week until September.

Maybe they could just lay off 400,000 and give the other half a 50% cut in pay. Government workers get 2x pay to start with, so this is a move in the right direction. I am really looking forward to this sequester... first good thing to happen in DC in a long time.

Many local governments had to institute unpaid furlough days for their employees several years ago. Those cities survived, and the nation will survive this.

This 800,000 number is preposterous. There are some 24,000 people working at the Pentagon. I´m assuming half are civilians. That´s some, generously, 15,000 non-military people. This would be the highest concentration by far. So where´s the other 785,000 people? That´s ridiculous! And where´s our press to question that number?

Some the comments here are ignorant. The reason there is so many employees is because there are that many rules and regulations that have to be followed.

Take my job for example I manage over $50 million in grants to ensure the readiness of my state´s National Guard. I am the only one that does this. Would your prefer some high school dropout making minimum wage do this job or would you prefer your tax dollars be protected by a college degreed person with years of experience?

This problem is not our fault and the furlough won´t fix the budget problem (the only way save real money is to eliminate useless programs). All that is going to happen is hurting Americans trying to make a living.

#12, how about we get rid of some of the rules and regulations, too and make the furloughs permanent? You´re not arguing that all those rules and regulations are necessary, are you? Don´t we all want to reduce the size of government, or does it depend on whose ox is being gored?

Besides the 800,000 number being more than a little suspect, this is simply proposing to furlough people 1 day a week without pay. This doesn´t sound like the tragedy people oare making it out to be. Drudge´s headline is way off base.

How many of the 800K didn´t have a government job in December of 2008? If you´ve added 800,000 employees while the economy is in the toilet, I don´t have much sympathy when some of them get reduced hours. The reason for the furloughs is to harm the largest number of people to blame the GOP.

I read elsewhere that sequestration will only cut 1% of the spending before September. That figure is dubious but so are all numbers about politics now.

But whatever the exact number it isn´t a massive overall cut. It will only have a big impact if it is all taken from one department such as Defence.

Now is the time for the GOP House to pass a Budget for the remainder of 2013 fiscal year and rush it to the Senate. Make Reid and the Democratstake it or leave it.

That shouldn´t be too much work, I suspect it could clear the House in 24 hours.

The new Budget should eliminate two or three entire departments but make a small increase in the debt ceiling with a provision that the ceiling will revert to the previous level after September if a 2014 Budget has not passed by then.

I really don´t care much anymore. Washington has erased any admiration I ever had for our government.

If this can result in a real cut, it will at least be a cut. Then cut a 1% next year, it a few years some progress might be noted.

Marco Rubio Shakes Up Staff And

Fox News Latino, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/14/2014 9:24:33 PM     Post Reply
Marco Rubio is beefing up his political action committee, making significant high-level changes to it and his senatorial staff. The changes are intensifying speculation that Rubio – who many thought that former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney would pick to be his vice president in 2102 – is preparing the terrain for the 2016 presidential race. Publicly, Rubio, a Florida Republican, has said he has not yet decided whether to aim for the White House in two years, or whether he’ll seek re-election to the Senate. His announcement, on his website, suggested he might be looking at running in 2016, but stopped short of

Survey shows ObamaCare sending

A recent survey of 148 insurance brokers shows that ObamaCare is sending premiums rising at the fastest clip in decades. "For the last, about, five years they´ve been doing this survey, so this was the largest percentage increase in any quarter since they´ve been doing (it)," says Scott Gottlieb of the American Enterprise Institute. "But at 12 percent, 11 percent increase on average across all the states -- that puts it at the upper end of any increase we´ve seen for decades." That is the national average in a survey done by Morgan Stanley. But in some states, it found rates are soaring. "There are specific states with exorbitant increases," says Gottlieb.

Bill O’Reilly invited Fox News contributor Brit Hume onto The O’Reilly Factor Monday night to expand on comments he made about Attorney General Eric Holder and race over the weekend. Hume said the reaction to his comments about Holder and President Barack Obama “benefitting enormously” because of their race was equal parts positive and negative, with about half of people on Twitter calling him “racist” because there were no African-Americans present for the debate on Fox News Sunday. “In other words, in order to discuss this, you have to have an African-American present,” Hume added. “But if you’re just white,

4 We told you a few weeks back that the Obama Administration was prepared to take an astonishing step of surrender, even for this crew, in giving up control of the Internet’s domain name system. That would threaten the Internet’s independence as it would create an opportunity for regimes far less friendly to freedom to step in and gain power and influence. Well, this idea was so horrendous that even Bill Clinton, in addition to 35 Republican senators, spoke up and told the administration not to do it, as well as a great many other voices. Guess what.

WASHINGTON – The Internal Revenue Service is prepared to rewrite a proposed rule regulating the political activities of non-profit groups to address complaints from the right and left that it goes too far, IRS Commissioner John Koskinen said Monday. "In all likelihood we will re-propose a redefined rule and ask for more public comment," Koskinen told USA TODAY´s Capital Download. It´s a process he predicts will take "until the end of the year and beyond" to complete. The proposed regulation of groups known as 501(c)(4)s drew a record 150,000 comments before the deadline in late February. He said the new rule would

Google has acquired drone maker Titan Aerospace, the Wall Street Journal reports. Titan is a New Mexico-based company that makes high-flying solar powered drones. There´s no word on the price Google paid, but Facebook had been in talks to acquire the company earlier this year for a reported $60 million. Presumably, Google paid more than that to keep it away from Facebook. It sounds like Titan will work on a variety of projects for Google. Titan will be able to collect photos from around the planet from high up, which could help with Google Earth and Google Maps. It will also contribute to Google's Project Loon,

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

4 killed, at least 36 wounded in weekend shootings During a 36-hour period over the weekend of April 11, 35 people were shot in Chicago, causing four fatalities in a city with some of the strictest gun control laws in the country. Chicago Police responded to 26 separate shooting incidents over the weekend, but over half the shootings occurred in only a 12-hour period on Saturday. Several of the incidents featured multiple shootings with multiple victims. Many were gang related. Chicago´s murder rate had been down over last year´s rates and some have errantly pegged the drop in murder rates to the fact that

Attorney General Eric Holder spoke out last week on his treatment by Congress, with the implication that it may have to do with his race. However, Holder cleared up to The Huffington Post that his comments were not about race, they were meant to reflect the current level of partisan “incivility” in Washington. The media buzzed for days about whether Holder played the race card, but the attorney general explained HuffPost last Friday, “I didn’t say there was a racial component. I was very careful not to say that.” When he was talking about his unfair treatment to Al Sharpton‘s National Action

Obama also praised the Pope’s simplicity and spirituality. “I suspect, my sense is, is that he’s a little bit uncomfortable with all the trappings of being Pope,” he said. “That’s not his style, and that is part of why I think he has been so embraced around

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

Some time back, whenever a big racial controversy erupted, I trained myself into the habit of reading about it at FoxNews.com, just for the unbelievable comment threads. Let’s put it this way: If my friends and I went out to a bar and started playing a “let’s write the racist FoxNews.com comment thread” drinking game, our efforts couldn’t begin to approach what I read there.I wasn’t alone. Liberal websites started feasting on these threads. And so, a couple of years ago, Ailes & Co. got wise. Stories about race were, at least in my disheartened experience, closed to comments.
