    Are you freaking kidding me? So the simple premise would be "We told them it was going to be bad so make sure it IS bad."?

    And they go on to say, essentially, "We are trying to make it as painless as possible but we probably won't be able to inspect meat so that will be in short supply."

    Man, those of you who still believe that a gigantic government is your friend had better be paying attention because this is the antithesis of governance and is running headlong into "ruling".
    Mess with the bull, you get the horn.

    Washington Times is the fox of the newspaper industry.

    I am sure they are twisting the facts or lying.

    Again, I have trouble believeing so much in the media. I am going to have to wait to get to upset about it, waiting for more information. But I can believe it, sounds like politics as usual in America.

    Everyone that voted for Obama deserves what they get including hours or job cuts.

    Come on. Sooner or later, we all knew this was going to happen. Seqestration, whatever you wanna call it.

    Money aint free, it doesn't come from nowhere. At some point, people HAD to realize that there are not enough taxable earnings to fund our government. Period.

    This is just like all those teacher's unions going on strike.

    I was laughed at previously when I suggested the President will be marginalized and become irrelevant to the power struggles in Washington and the country because of his dishonesty. As more and more of these issues come to the fore, I feel vindicated.

    Don't feel that way. It's only an allusion. 4 more years!

    CJ, your post reminded me of a quote I heard once..."Anything that can't go on forever, eventually won't." I don't recall who said it, but it seems human nature can be counted on when things get out of balance...

    I don't think this is clear. What we need to see is the email that was quoted, not the e-mail doing the quoting. In other words, what did APHIS say? That's the important point. What this fellow says they said may or may not be what they actually said.

    Re: Email tells feds to make sequester as painful as promised

    It occurs to me to add: of course, if the administration really is saying to various agencies that the sequestration should be made to be as painful as possible to ordinary folks, I would say that's grounds for impeachment, conviction, and recall of whoever is doing the saying. I doubt very many people at any point in the spectrum of American politics will find that a defensible act. I certainly won't. But so far, there's no evidence that this is in fact the case.
