I don't intend to make a side hobby of focusing on the sequestration, but there appears to have been quite a bit come out. It is Friday, after all.
Bad News Friday. The tradition that started 6-8 years ago, and holds true it seems. Always bound to be something and this Friday seems worse than most
in recent months.
Friendship Park to Close
The Border Patrol says they have been forced to downsize their budget, which means they will need to close the park.
The park draws big crowds from the U.S. and Mexico, where people chat through a chain-link fence separating Imperial Beach and Tijuana.
This is just starting to get stupid. A park? The United States Federal Government can't find ANYTHING better to cut than this park?? This is outright
mean spirited and spiteful.
Customs and Border Patrol issued the following statement to NBC 7 San Diego: Source
"The automatic budget reductions must be applied to virtually every program, project, and activity that DHS has and will negatively affect the mission
readiness and capabilities of the men and women on our front
I say this goes well beyond simply the sequestration issue. THIS one specifically goes to management and the decision making ability of the leadership
at Department of Homeland Security. If this is the best management skills they can display, we need to replace them, Outright, I say.
Janet needs to go so someone CAPABLE of running an enormous organization with effective leadership
and not simply general guidance with
deniability for anything bad can step in. This decision on the park just strikes me as TOO directly spiteful to be anything but what it looks like.
