Obama Cuts 13 Minutes From Federal Deficit

White House resident Barack Obama has embarked on his budget cutting orgy by announcing department cuts amounting to a whopping $100,000 from the federal deficit of $4,000,000,000,000. National Review does the hard arithmetic on what $100K means.

It is 1/40,000 of the federal budget;
It is 1/7,830 the size of the recent “stimulus” bill;
It would close 1/1,845 of this year’s budget deficit;
It is the amount the federal government spends every 13 minutes; and
For a family earning $40,000 annually, it is the equivalent of cutting $1 from their family budget.
A minute here, a minute there and pretty soon it's break time. You're doin' a heck of a job, Barry.

We must write letters and make phone calls, Indigo. The Tea Parties scheduled for the Fourth of July and the march on the Capitol scheduled for 9/12/09 isn't enough. We Americans are moving too slow! If we want to stop this we've got to bombard them with protests. My mail is sent via snail mail as it's not as easy to ignore as are e-mails. We also need to make phone calls. Let these b*stards know we're serious! Their switchboards need to be tied up because of the phone calls, their offices need to be flooded with mail. If the politicians begin to worry about being re-elected, then things will change, but that's the only thing that will make them change. Ultimately we need to kick all their butts out, including Obama's!

By the way, I love the graphic. He's an "empty suit" for sure!

All excellent ideas, Gayle. Now, let's make them great actions.
