President Obama is as incompetent at prioritizing as my dog is at catching his tail (and he is a boxer.)

According to an article in the Wall Street Journal:

President Obama’s sequester scare strategy has been a political flop, but his government keeps trying. The latest gambit is to force airline flight delays until enough travelers stuck on tarmacs browbeat enough Republicans to raise taxes again.

This week the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) began furloughing each of its air-traffic controllers for one day out of every 10 to achieve roughly $600 million in savings this fiscal year. The White House dubiously claims that the furloughs are required by the sequester spending cuts enacted in 2011.

This is typical bureaucracy and an attempt to punish the citizens in order for the government to get more money. Government will always cut the high impact functions first to teach us a lesson. I just really hope that people are not so blind and stupid.

      Good luck on your connections and have fun in Europe. Don’t forget to make a separate insanity list during your travels.
