Man made mess

It's sequestration week.
We got our marching orders like the rest of the media did this morning.
The white house sending out a list of all the things in your that which will dry up and blow away unless the president gets his way on Friday.
I say let all this play our.
Sequestration was a financial game of chicken the president came up with two years ago.
Now, he's blaming it on the republicans.
Last week we got the preliminary reports which stated the Tyler and Longview airport would be crippled.
We called the public information office for the city of Tyler and she told us that was far from the case.
Even if their air traffic control towers are closed it could be handled from other places.
Here is what this is all about.
Some of you are in business and you should really get this.
The federal government has a budget of 3.5 trillion dollars.
The cuts..and they are not even cuts..they are reduction in the rate of spending
are being cut.
This amounts to about 2.5% of the federal budget going away.
what business can't move some money around and work with that?
35% of the federal budget is discretionary
That can readjust that too.
If you were in business you'd have to.
This is the sacred cow, the federal government.
It projects, runs over, makes a mess, burps on itself and just needs more money.
All those police officers and firemen you see this week that the president will be using as props
behind him...most are paid with local money.
We can do better than this.
That's my point of view what's yours?
