As usual, I awoke early this morning but could sense that something was different. There was an eerie silence outside. What was it? I know--I didn't hear the sounds of school busses stopping and starting. Oh boy, it's the first day of Sequestration and it's just as Obama had warned--schools were closed (probably for good).

I had the presence of mind yesterday to fill my car with gas--knowing that all of the stations would be closed. Driving down the Anthony Wayne Trail I noticed that none of the traffic lights were working-- yep, Edison had already suffered the consequences of the Sequester.

As I headed toward downtown I saw something that at first I couldn't identify, but then I could feel my heart start to pound with fear. My god! Sequestration has resulted in the zoo losing funding and the animals were running wild. I swerved to avoid a colony of penguins (okay--I looked that term up when I got to work) only to come close to hitting a group of illegal aliens who had been released from a federal detention facility and were hitching their way to Canada.

The only good news I can report is that when I passed the Toledo Country Club, they were doing some preliminary work on the golf course. If there's one positive thing I can say about the Obama Sequestration is that the President has his priorities in the right place--golf has survived.

How are you surviving? Share your story.

No change here. The gov't is taking a mandatory cut yet we will still spend more this year than last. That is a "cut" to gov't.


It's all happening so fast! I was at the market and saw a friend of mine who's an FBI agent--and he was bagging groceries! I also passed a Sylvania fire station and one of the trucks had a "For Sale" sign on it!

It's just as Obama forewarned us! Is he not the greatest President we've EVER had?!

Good thing you clinged to your guns.


Yeah and you better stock up on bullets if you can find -em anywhere...i.e. Gov't buying them by the billions, what better way to dry up surplus...Oh wait thats probably not true either, go back to sleep everthings ok....

And according to the empty suit excuse of a "president" taking up space in the White House, the epicenter of the Sequestration Earthquake was in the middle of the Bush's Fault Line.

Don't blame me,
I didn't vote for a

The House has de-funded the presidents' golf outings!
