The President has ordered the cabinet to cut $100,000,000.00 ($100 million)
from the $3,500,000,000,000.00 ($3.5 trillion) federal budget.

I'm so impressed by this sacrifice that I have decided to do the same thing
with my personal budget. I spend about $2,000 a month on groceries,
household expenses, medicine, utilities, etc., but it's time to get out the
budget cutting axe, go through my expenses, and cut back.

I'm going to cut my spending at exactly the same ratio, 1/35,000 of my total
budget. After doing the math, it looks like instead of spending $2,000 a
month; I'm going to have to cut that number by six cents. Yes, I'm going to
have to get by with $1999.94, but that's what sacrifice is all about!
I'll just have to do without some things, that are, frankly, luxuries - six
cents worth. Did this President actually think no one would do the math?

Please send this to everyone you know so people understand how idiotic a $100 million cut
is in a $3,500,000,000,000.00 budget - LUDICROUS!

Haha.. Way to put it in perspective. I believe I will make the same "Sacrifice" in my personal life as well. Its going to be tough but it has to be done to save the economy.

Obama could get rid of the whole Department of Defense and we still wouldn't pay off our debt...

...Any "budget" cut is a gimmick.

Most people will read 100 million and think they are doing some major cuts. Thing is I could ask anyone I know what the deficit is and they ask what a deficit is.

/facepalm

S+F for the perspective alone.


Budget cuts are kind of like the old cup and ball trick as far as I am concerned. There is so much money going to so many places I am not even sure if the government knows how much money we have or if we really have any at all. They just virtually move this money to other places/needs/studies/projects/black ops, etc. when it needs to be shown on paper, then move the same money to something else when it is needed there. It has to look right on the piece of paper that is being fed to the public.

The whole budget is a joke.

$100 Million Budget Cut

At least Obama is proportionally consistent. He did save one turkey from execution last November.

THIS IS FROM 2009!!!!!!!!! Are you joking? Stars and flags for 3-year-old news and a little rant? ATS has gone down the toilet. Think for yourselves, people, the ease with which you are all outraged over BS is hilarious. Seriously, we have much more important sh*t to roast Obama for since 2009, this is a joke. And everyone just took the bait without even asking for a source. Face-effing-palm.

The OP is a cut and paste lift job in it's entirety from an old circulated email.

Old or not, it still drives the point home.
Not much has changed because much more has been spent, than has been cut, since this article came out.
By removing the 8 zeroes means you are using 8 digits as a multiplier.
This is one thing to consider next time Obama decides to spend, cut and spend some more.

I never said it was recent or took credit I made this up...just making a point that when citizens see Obama Cuts $100 Million - it may seem like a HUGE cut but in reality it's worthless!

Did you have to travel through Mordor to get it to us or something? This thing is old as hell.

If you don't provide a link to a source, or indicate otherwise where you obtained the information, one can only assume you are the author of the material.

Just some basic threadiquette that will make your stay more pleasant here.

Okay, then let's play this game:

-GERMANY HAS KILLED A BUNCH OF ITS OWN CITIZENS!!! OUTRAGEOUS!!! Remember that next time they're on the news bailing people out!

-CUBA HAS MISSILES POINTED AT US AND ARE READY TO FIRE!!! Get your bomb shelter ready!

-THE GOVERNMENT CUT TAXES FOR ALL AND SENT OUT CHECKS!!! Make sure to remember that at the polls!

-HAITI HAD A HUGE EARTHQUAKE! Open your wallets!

-THERE'S A MELTDOWN GOING ON IN JAPAN!!!

See, we can rehash old news all day. Doesn't mean they deserve new threads and fresh outrage and distraction from the *real* pressing events at hand.
