THE TAX, THE WHOLE TAX, AND NOTHING BUT THE TAX. Did you ever play hide and seek as a child. I did. Do kids even do that any more? Do you think our politicians are playing this. Or some other childish game. Do you have an opinion about the sequester? Do you even know what the sequester is? Do you know the meaning of the word sequester? I had to look it up, cause I had no idea that it had anything to do with government spending. Or taxation. If you don't know either, let me edakate you a bit. Sequester---Verb---To isolate or hide away, something of someone.
Noun---A general cut in government spending.
Legal-- Sequestration---The seizure of property for creditors or the state.
Science--Bile acid sequestrant---The bile acid sequestrants are a group of resins used to bind certain components of bile in the gastrointestinal tract. They disrupt the enterohepatic circulation of bile acids by combining with bile constituents and preventing their reabsorption from the gut. In general, they are classified as hypolipidemic agents, although they may be used for the purposes other than lowering cholesterol. They are used in the treatment of chronic diarrhea due to bile acid malabsorption.
Now, having said all that, do you understand what is going on in Washington? Yeah. Me too. So, here is my opinion of all this.The government wants to hide away all the money they take in so it isn't visible ten they can ask for more. That's when they have a general cut in spending so they then have to seize more to pay for the cuts. All of which causes the most of us to have a bile attack thus needing to make use of a sequestrant resin to keep us from having gastrointestinal attacks which would cause us to reach the chronic state mentioned in the last sentence in green. Then the news comes on and the President says we need more money and the speaker says you got more money in January, now we need to cut spending. Well, I agree with the speaker, but. But what, you say? Why, when they have these spending cuts, do they always target the old, the young, as in education, and the military. There is enough mindless spending going on that cuts to that would cure the ills for a while.
Example. The 60 billion for the rebuilding after hurricane Sandy. A lot of that didn't go to the victims of Sandy. Congress people put a lot of that money in to pork items for their districts. Places that had nothing to do with Sandy. If the people elected to govern would actually govern, and think not what they can do for their own pocket books, if they would actually be concerned about the country and less about their selves, things would get done.
Maybe we can just sequester the congress away, as in this definition Jury sequestration. The isolation of a jury to avoid accidental or deliberate tainting. A judge may order a jury to be sequestered in order to prevent others from tampering with members of the jury through undue persuasion, threats, or bribes.
Then perhaps the nations budget could go from red to green. And what does that have to do with hide and seek. If we had congress hid, maybe they would seek the best way to solve the budget problems.
And That's the VIEW FROM THE DITCH BANK
