Who Has Some Toilet Paper?

img005

There are well over twelve million people in the US who are unemployed today. They have trouble existing. Many probably work two, or three, part-time jobs to eek a living. Others, are starving. The Federal government however, has no concept of what that kind of hardship really is. I did a little math and divided the total number of federal workers classified as Executive, (2,756,000) by their average salary of $76231/yrs. If the entire sequester cut went toward laying off  these people only, Obama would have to lay off 1,115,030 people. That is a huge number, yet it is only nine percent of the total private sector people who are suffering without work.

It is my opinion that if these nine percent were to feel the pain, the business climate would improve to the point where the twelve million private sector people  would find good jobs. Would you sacrifice the nine percent to put twelve million back to work? Take the poll below and let me know how you feel.

The news item below is a comment made by a lady who has some insight into what is happening inside the services to make them feel the full impact and pain of the sequester. Click on her name to take you to the news article she commented on.

“I’m from a military family still living in a military community with daily contact with numerous active duty friends. Here’s what’s happening that’s not being reported. Soldiers on deployment are no longer receiving hot meals (haven’t for a while now), service members going through basic training are running out of TOILET PAPER (wonder if soldiers in Afghanistan have any or if it’s only what they are getting from loved ones guess that’d better be included in the next care package). Friends who recently met seamen who had just graduated from boot camp were told of them not having toilet paper in their barracks the last 2 weeks of training. Yet Obama still plays golf and his wife still takes numerous vacations on the taxpayer dime because apparently he’s working SOOOOOOO hard that he needs to take at least 4 vacations a year plus play golf every week. After all putting out a budget is enough to give anyone a headache so they’d need a break, Oh wait he’s never put out a budget! EPIC FAIL AMERICA!”

POLL

Take this SImple Quiz.

As an engineer I love looking at data in graphic format. The numbers tell stories when they form pictures that the mind can absorb. Here is a graph that puts the horrible Sequester cuts in perspective. Thank you Dan Mitchell of International Liberty blog from where I lifted this image.

Take the quiz, answer the simple  question in the graphic, then ask yourself why are we fussing so much about this issue?
