The sequester B.S. is supposed to be 85 million in cuts right?

That's a whopping 2 to 3 percent of current spending.

This is all B.S. they are playing games.

Please back up your claim. Bush had tax cuts at that rate.

My Father who is a 26 year Vet of the Air Force, after retiring as Chief Master Sergeant and 3 tours in Iraq, will be Furloughed starting next month. Let me help you all understand what this will do. 2000$ per month is lost. What would you do with/without that extra money? Nuff said

Will they collect a paycheck on furlough

this is the question.

If not, they have to classify themselves as laid off to unemployment

to collect any kind of benefits.

Unemployment does not have any designation other than:

1. fired
2. quit
3. laid off

If they are not collecting a paycheck, then

they will not have monies to put back into the economy or not what

they use to...


this is basically,

a lay off until further notice

and many may not find their job is available to

Not sure I understand you. Your father is drawing mil retirement pay, right?

Does he also have a gubmint job that he will be furloughed from?

You seem to be implying that his military retirement pay will be cut. I don't think that is the case.

Yes, and if you'd get your idiotic, entitled noses out of everyone's business, there would be jobs well beyond these, as well as sufficient revenue (via lower taxes even) to continue funding the ever-increasing welfare state you guys love so much. You're all just too stupid to see it.

You got that right. My wife is one of them. We have talked about it for years that they could do the job with half of the people they currently have right now.

If someone gets into trouble, they really don't do much to them. If they did the same thing in the corporate world, the would be fired in an instant. Primarily it is the union. They do have a place, no doubt, but defending some of these dead weights is pretty bad sometimes.

Are you aware that DOD was planning cuts as much as 40% across the board way back in the Bush admin? And these cuts were to go into effect after completion of the latest BRAC. Guess what.

The 2005 Base Realignment and Closure Commission preliminary list was released by the United States Department of Defense on May 13, 2005. It was the fifth Base Realignment and Closure ("BRAC") proposal generated since the process was created in 1988. It recommended closing 22 major United States military bases and the "realignment" (either enlarging or shrinking) of 33 others.

Major facilities slated for closure include these:
Fort McPherson, Georgia
Fort Gillem, Georgia
Naval Submarine Base New London in Connecticut (removed from list August 24, 2005[2])
Portsmouth Naval Shipyard in Kittery, Maine (removed from list August 26, 2005)
Naval Air Station Brunswick in Maine
Ellsworth Air Force Base in South Dakota (removed from list August 26, 2005)
Cannon Air Force Base in New Mexico (temporarily removed from closure August 26, 2005, pending review of new mission assignment)
Fort Monmouth in New Jersey
Defense Finance and Accounting Service in New York
Fort Monroe, Virginia
Willow Grove Naval Air Station/Joint Reserve Base in Pennsylvania
Naval Station Ingleside, Texas
Otis Air National Guard Base, Massachusetts (removed from list August 26, 2005)
Navy Supply Corps School (Athens, Georgia), relocated to Naval Station Newport, Rhode Island in 2011.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 3987337


I don't consider taking my tax dollars and giving it to someone in the DoD to spy on me a job. These 800,000 people should not have had these jobs in the 1st place. So no the government cannot possibly create jobs when they use tax dollars that have been given to them to fund these so called jobs. If the money was with the people where it should be every person on the federal tit could get a real job and have a real employer.

Just like the liberals in Dakota were somehow able to talk the people of Dakota into keeping their property tax. All they had to say was that big brother uses the property tax to build roads, schools etc. and that they need his help to continue to have these projects completed. Meanwhile the truth is if those people in Dakota took the funds they saved from no more property tax and put it in to a newly created Dakota bank/community funds that could give loans to new businesses or for new projects they could have built up their own communities without the government tit in their mouths. When will people realize we can do it ourselves and we could do a better job without these greedy traitors skimming off the top and bankrupting every government funded program?

Defense Secretary Leon Panetta had the unenviable job today of informing hundreds of thousands of his civilian employees that they could be furloughed if the sequester takes effect on March 1.


Defense Secretary Leon Panetta had the unenviable job today of informing hundreds of thousands of his civilian employees that they could be furloughed if the sequester takes effect on March 1.

In a letter to the entire DoD workforce, Panetta warned that “should sequestration occur and continue for a substantial period, DoD will be forced to place the vast majority of its civilian workforce on administrative furlough.”

This could impact as many as 800,000 civilian employees, which Panetta argued “will result in a serious erosion of readiness across the force.”

The whiners and losers in the military, congress, and other government-funded pursuits are lining up to tell Congress their sob story of why "You can't take away my money/job/program." They're no better than the Obama phone lady. Gimme, gimme, gimme.

Except the government employees were in a position to know in advance that this was coming. They could've found a solution but they figured they didn't have to because they could always beg their way out of it.
