    We only spend more on the military in the USA than the rest of the world combined. 46K in people, and their salaries, a drop in the bucket.

    shot410a- you do sleep safe in your bed at night-- why are you anti military?

    Think before you post

    Cut the foreign aid before you cut the Department that protects us

    Here it is nearly 70 years after the end of WW II, and 60 years after the end of fighting in Korea. Germany, Japan, and South Korea have some of the biggest economies in the world, and we are still maintaining huge forces in those countries? Can't they defend themselves? I read yesterday there is talk of spending millions, if not billions, to send US forces to "train" Africans in Mali. Do we really need to get involved in yet another third-world cesspool?

    The report said full time employess will get 'furloughed' one day a week for 22 weeks. I guess the 46,000 will draw unemployment, food stamps and so forth?

    I don't consider that a layoff, that is just a cutback in hours like millions of other Americans have had to go through.


    Think they are trying to avoid Bamacare????? LOL


    I doubt the defense contractors who build the weapons for the military will be getting shorter hours, I think those people will be laid off.

    How many billions of $ go to foreign aid? Most to countries that hate us. Eliminate that first! Layoffs & pay reductions should go to the hoards of government employees that are crippling this country.

    Uh huh. Here it comes.


    Java Man got re-elected. Surely you didn't think the job-cuts were going to be limited to the "right-wing side" of the Federal Government Job Carnival, did you?

    Thats right , cut some of this foreign aid to keep our American people working . If they don`t do their job - dump them in a heart beat . Be fair and pay fair . Get rid of all unnecesary workers if you have to - not to make it look good on paper !!!!

    Quite a while ago I found a website that listed all fed govt jobs that opened and they would email them to me, there was at most 2-3 a couple time a week in the fields of jobs I wanted to see, since the great divider has been reelected there are about 25-30 daily

    Guess now he is hiring his votes
