So another senior adviser in the Obama administration has used the “what does it matter now?” comeback, this time in regards to the sequester and not the Benghazi fiasco. Guess that’s the new Obama mantra — what’s does it matter now. That is just awesome.

The sequester, if it happens, will perform the service of showing Americans all the good and necessary things that “big government” does, unfortunately, by stopping them.

The USA needs mental illness facilities, homeless shelters, food pantry assistance, humane society assistance. But we somehow found $60 million to go to rebels in Syria. What about taking care of our own issues first?

The president wants me to be scared of my own shadow. The sky is falling, and its not his fault.

You know greed is running rampant when a major beer manufacturer is watering down the beer to increase profits. It is a sad day when you can’t buy an honest beer.

Why would the state of Indiana waste taxpayer money on drug testing for welfare recipients if the only “punishment” for testing positive is that they’re asked to go to treatment? That is a joke!

The sequestration is just a lot of scare mongering and overhype by both the White House and Congress. It only cuts $85 billion from the already inflated and wasteful spending, and will hardly make a dent in the $16 trillion debt. I say bring it on and keep on cutting.

Just read the suggestion that all office holders should be subject to random drug and alcohol tests. Would that be before or after sentencing?
