    particularly dear and supportive of this gang.

    One thing that I'd sort of like to see, though it isn't at all "nice" is some real political hardball consequences for the obstructionism the Congressional Rs have engaged in over the last years. They, as all do, depend on a level of "gravy" going to their districts. It is not entirely "dirty politics" to have consequences for that gravy for bad behavior. Maybe some bases need to be relocated, some major units redeployed away from the states and districts of these representatives.

    No need to keep assisting them in polishing their "effectiveness in getting you things" image. None at all. If sequester it be then the "savings" should be as much reverse gravy in their districts as reasonably possible.

    The only foes that threaten America are the enemies at home, and those are ignorance, superstition, and incompetence. [Elbert Hubbard]
