The Pain of 2 Pennies

Dear Lord, please help me understand this problem. Our government increases spending by 33% in four years Our government borrows every penny of that increase, deferring the repayment to our progeny. Our president proposes a sequester trigger to force Congress to address our fiscal mess. Our president vows in November 2011 that he WILL NOT allow Congress out of the sequester. Yet suddenly in 2013, that same president claims that cutting 2% out of a bloated budget will cause America to shut down. WTF is the meaning of this, Oh Lord?

33% increase in spending in 4 years,

The economy only grew 6% in 4 years, and it is impossible for revenue to grow 33% to pay for the reckless spending.

It means that we're being rope-a-doped by the president and his compliant media. Hitler and Goebbels wet dreams are the stuff that president 0 receives from the MSM.

Like a breathless 13 year old girl at a One Direction concert, President Obama raced around the nation over the last week attempting to frighten Americans into opposing the modest cuts to the federal budget due through the sequester process on March 1. Never mind that the sequester was President Obama's idea. Never mind that these cuts amount to just 2 cents on every dollar of the federal budget. And, never mind that his Administration has made history, in a bad way, by running four straight trillion dollar plus deficits.

No, there was the President standing in front of...
