February 28, 2013, Binghamton, NY:  
.
The Beginning
.
So much left to do.  So much left to say.  So few minutes left to deliver this warning.  Well, might as well get right to the point... 
.
Today is the last day of 'America', as we know it. 
.
Tomorrow, March 1st, at 11:59PM, the United States of America will be no more.  The upcoming Sequester and its 'draconian cuts' will SLASH U.S. Federal Spending to an INCREASE of a mere $15 BILLION in 2013, vs. the baseline-budgeted $100 BILLION it desperately needs to expand.  This $85 Billion is NECESSARY to fund the growth of vitally important services to citizens of the United States of America! 
.
[MOTTO:  "The Federal Government is expanding to meet the needs of an expanding Federal Government."]
.
President Obama has been valiantly attempting to get his message out for weeks, but no one is helping him in his heroic efforts to...  Help US.
.
My God - the horror of it all.  We have failed him in so many ways!  Why have we failed him?  And following the urgency I feel in my heart, I must ask, why have we have in turn... failed ourselves?
.
People of America, this is your last warning.  Give the President the spending he wants - before it is too late.   
.
In a last ditch effort to avert the cataclysm which awaits US, I beg you to hear, and heed the words of President Barack Obama one last time while there is still time in which to hear them.  Soon your ears, your voice, and his clarion call to 'do the right thing', will be silenced (by Evil Republicans) forever.

From BusinessInsider.com, February 26, 2013:  President Barack Obama gave a stark warning to a shipyard crowd in Newport News, Va., telling them that the coming cuts known as the sequester are a "dumb way to do things."
.
[Moos Note:  Well-known TEA Party Extremist and so-called author and investigative reporter, Bob Woodward, now CLAIMS that after stating that the Sequester was the "White House's Idea in the first place" and generally "bad idea" that he has received a threatening note FROM the White House. 
.
Yeah, sure, right!  Where's the proof of this, Woodward?  You Right Wing-Nut Whack Job!  
.
Oh, you have an e-mail FROM a 'high-ranking' employee in the White House' and can back it up?  LIAR!  You'll PAY for your insolence!  You are evil and must be destroyed...]  
."This work, along with hundreds of thousands of jobs, are currently in jeopardy because of politics in Washington," Obama said.
.
Obama called the sequester a "pretty bad name" for the amount of harm they could inflict, warning that their effects could be "even worse" than the name.
 
.
"I'm not interested in spin. I'm not interested in playing a blame game," Obama said. "At this point, all I'm interested in is solving problems."
.
...
.
Obama warned the crowd that 90,000 workers might have to be furloughed if the sequester goes into effect, and he said it could cost more than 10,000 jobs in Virginia alone.
 
.
Obama said that people are "rightly concerned" about the deficit and debt, but called the sequester not the right way to approach decreasing either.
.

The Middle
.
Eric Holder, Attorney General of the United States, is doing his part to save America from itself also. 
.
He was interviewed yesterday, February 27th and said the following:
.
This is something that is going to have an impact on the safety of this country,” the U.S. attorney general told ABC’s Pierre Thomas on Wednesday. “And anybody that says otherwise is either lying or saying something that runs contrary to the facts,” Holder said.
.
In his interview, Holder reiterated warnings that if automatic spending cuts are triggered on Friday, the Justice Department will be handicapped in some of its most vital missions to prevent terrorist attacks and crime.
.
“The Justice Department is going to lose nine percent of its budget between now and September 30th. We’re going to lose $1.6 billion. There are not going to be as many FBI agents, ATF agents, DEA agents, prosecutors who are going to be able to do their jobs,” Holder said.
.
“They’re going to be furloughed. They’re going to spend time out of their offices, not doing their jobs.”
.

Wow.  Powerful stuff from a powerful man. 
.
How can we continue to ignore these warnings?!?!  What else can these beacons of truth say to bring you people to your senses???
.

.
Perhaps you'll heed the warning from Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, (a.k.a.:  'Big Sis') from February 25, 2013 when she says:
.
“I don't think we can maintain the same level of security at all places around the country with sequester compared to without sequester,” said Napolitano, whose agency includes the Transportation Security Administration.
.
...
.
“I think if you look at the combination of the effect on [the Department of Homeland Security], the Department of Justice and the Department of Defense, we are having real impacts on the robustness of our defensive posture,” Napolitano told reporters at the White House on Monday.
.
The End
.

In summation:

  • The President KNOWs that this is a 'dumb way to do things'
  • The President is INTERESTED in solving problems, not playing Politics
  • Eric Holder KNOWS that FBI people will be not doing their jobs and that the country will be 'less safe'
  • Janet Napolitano KNOWS that the 'Robustness of our defensive posture' will be impacted
  • I KNOW that we shouldn't do dumb things, even if they are the White House's idea in the first place
.
People, these 'dumb things' (as recommended by President Obama's Chief of Staff, Jack Lew, our new Secretary of Treasury!) will IMMEDIATELY imperil the lives of Americans across this Nation!  Draconian cuts will decimate Law Enforcement, reduce the number of Teachers in our Schools, numbers of First Responders, as well as Trash Collectors across the country.
.
Bolster your courage, gird you loins, and call you local Representative and tell them to "Give President Obama exactly what he deserves!"
.


BREAKING NEWS ALERT:  The President issued a statement informing us that we may not see any impact from this sequester at all for months, and some of YOU may see no impact whatsoever. 
.
This brave, brave man is doing whatever he can to comfort us in our most dire hour of need .  He is attempting to minimize the impact of this mindless legislation on us - what a GUY!  .

God bless you President Obama - stay the course!  Keep telling the TRUTH - I know that we can take it!!!

.




To paraphrase the President:  "Oops, never mind."

.
Me thinks someone has cried Wolf too often over the past month or so...

.
And what is that word for someone who misleads others?
.


That's a wrap.
