Take President Obama and his Cabinet of Liars, please.

We all know what dirty tricks they played to try and stop the sequester's automatic budget cuts from happening.

They spent weeks trying to frighten the America people into believing the country would collapse into chaos and suffering if the federal government's sequester-forced spending cuts went into effect.

The campaigner in chief and his chorus of toadies did everything they could to make sure the puny spending cuts -- which would have merely taken the federal budget back to its 2012 level -- would cause the most pain to the most people.

Supposedly the cuts were going to decimate the ranks of our local police forces and firefighters, throw hundreds of teachers into the streets, create long lines at airports and maybe even leave the United States vulnerable to a military invasion by Greece.

Of course, most of Big Media played right along with Obama's dirty political game. Like the dupes they are, they publicized every sequester scare-story like it was going to mean the end of America as we know it.

(Too bad the MSN don't devote the same level of hysteria to covering some of our real problems, like Obama's runaway federal spending and our unpayable future debt load.)

In case you haven't noticed by now, Armageddon didn't happen. The sequester came and the sun is still coming up. Planes aren't falling from the heavens. And I haven't had to use my guns to defend my home against a single robber or terrorist.

Even the invertebrate Republicans in Congress haven't caved to pressure from the special interests who oppose the sequester cuts, though perhaps they just need more time.

So far Obama's cross-country campaign of whoppers hasn't worked on the American people, who don't need Karl Rove to tell them that the "Big Bad Wolf" the president was yapping about every day wasn't really at their doors.

Another hopeful sign that most Americans are not as naive or stupid as the Obama Gang thinks they are came this week when the citizens of Los Angeles went to the polls.

The mayoral primary was the top draw, but also on the ballot on Tuesday was one of California's infamous ballot measures.

The official title was "Proposition A -- Neighborhood Public Safety And Vital City Services Funding And Accountability Measure." That's government-speak for a half-cent sales tax hike.
