Who's sequestered?

Raising hand...

20% hit to my income to start in about 30 days. My wife says that we're going to have to cut back. Uh cut back what I allready ride a KLR! Eating out is Taco Bell maybe once a week, yea we'll cut back, hah.

Idjit politicians all of them.

No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him. 1 Cor 2:9

Yep, my sister and her husband have both received their "sequester notices", and they're both expecting the same crap.

I do believe I expressed this in the "Random Thoughts" thread - but if I didn't, here it is again:

So Congress & the President and Vice President get to keep receiving their FULL salaries - but the civilians and such who work FOR the government are going to be furloughed, leading to annual pay cuts of about 20% of their income for the year... Doesn't make sense to me that the BOZOS from BOTH MAJOR POLITICAL PARTIES running the government don't get penalized for their continued partisan bickering and stonewalling...

Meanwhile, the Cardinals of the Catholic Church are sequestered until they elect a new Pope.

Let's take a page from the Catholic Church: LOCK THE DAMN IDIOTS (CONGRESS (all of them, not just the leaders), OBAMA, AND BIDEN) IN WASHINGTON INTO THE CAPITOL AND DON'T LET THEM OUT UNTIL THEY GET A DEAL DONE!!!

People should not be afraid of their governments. Governments should be afraid of their people.

That's just one minor part - but I'm all for it. I mean seriously, how much does a round of golf for Obama cost if he's playing at a country club? They probably have to make sure he's the ONLY golfer on the course, which means the taxpayers have to "buy up" all of the other tee times before / after Obama's tee time. Then there's the cost of the Secret Service folks "securing" the area...

So yeah, I'm for cutting that cost - as well as all of the "perks" for all of the members of Congress.

And I still say they should ALL be held in the Capitol Building - even against their will - until they get an agreement worked out. If they want to go home: TOO DAMN BAD! Their stupid political infighting is severely impacting the lives of government workers who are subject to the sequestration. They want to provide for their own families, and Congress, the President, and Vice President are screwing everyone.
