Comments on: Sequestration as government malpractice Thu, 21 Jul 2016 07:57:19 +0000 hourly 1 By: 2Borknot2B Thu, 01 Aug 2013 07:05:19 +0000 Honestly, the FDA is a joke. Sequestration has zero effect on the drug industry. They will do what ever they want, when ever they want. The only thing I have observed and experienced the FDA doing is to approve drugs that kill people and prevent medicine that would actually help from being approved or utilized appropriately. And, yes, I know what I speak. I am a psychopharmacologist. Do you want to see my degrees, proof of prescriptive privileges or my DEA number? Our entire health care system is completely corrupted. You would not believe how bad it actually is. It would blow your mind to know the truth.

I respectfully disagree. America is BROKE, i.e. spending wayyyy more than it’s incoming tax revenue. What part of UNSUSTAINABLE do you not uinderstand?

Sequestration is NOT a cut in funding. It is a reduction in the rate that government spending is increasing. There will never be an end to “worthy causes” to hire government bureaucrats to administer, and no end to the money “required”.

At some point common sense (remember that?) dictates ENOUGH and it becomes necessary to PRIORITIZE expenditures such that things are funded that give the biggest bang for the fewest bucks. I think Americans can “live with that”.

By: ptiffany Tue, 30 Jul 2013 22:58:10 +0000 There are hundreds, if not thousands, of government programs that provide substantial benefits to tens of millions of American citizens. Of course, the “big, bad government” advocates will fight these forever, even while acknowledging that nearly every one of them individually is of benefit. These are the same people who claim to support the Constitution, but will fight to the death to prevent the institution of “promote the general welfare”.

On top of that, they tend to vote against their own self-interest, supporting the too-big-to-fail Wall Street Casinos with taxpayer funds to cover all of their gambling losses.
It must be great to be a member of the One Percenters Club, the functional arm of the Plutocracy with its very success PR conducted through the Idiocracy.

“Let them [the Pee-Ons] eat cake!”

It’s time to accept that the United States has reverted to the feudal system of the Middle Ages. At the start of this country, one could only be consider a real citizen if one was a landowner. Now, the entry to the Club is determined by foreign bank accounts in the millions that evade, er, avoid taxes. Those corporate jets owned by one-person corporations are expensive to maintain.
