The STFU Obama Speech

is on tonight, but I don't know if I will bother with it. The man lies so damned much it's pathetic, and he's hellbent on serving his Wall Street masters and make the country even worse off than it's been.

Here is what we have to look forward to:

On Friday, the White House published a list of the most egregious consequences of the domestic spending cuts looming under sequestration, as part of an effort to blame the Republicans for cuts for which both corporate-controlled parties are responsible. The list details the cumulative effect of the cuts, which total nearly $500 billion in domestic spending over the next ten years. Among the cutbacks:

An estimated 600,000 women and children would lose food stamps.
100,000 formerly homeless people would lose their government-financed housing.
Head Start cuts would eliminate early education slots for as many as 70,000 poor children.
Federal support would be eliminated for 7,200 school employees who serve special-needs children.
Job safety and food safety inspectors would face unpaid furloughs.
Federal loans to small businesses would be reduced by $500 million.

President Obama devoted his Saturday radio and Internet address to the sequester, warning of thousands of federal layoffs or furloughs and a “huge blow to middle class families and our economy as a whole” if the cuts took effect.
