    Correct me if I'm wrong, but weren't we supposed to all have died in a fiery crash while old people ate their grandchildren as a result of the automatic spending cuts included in the sequester legislation that took effect a while back?

    What happened?

    Did you forget? We actually died when Republicans shut the government down when Klinton was president.

    Tell me about it. I made the mistake of investing in Grandchildren Helper (stretches out those meals) and lost a fortune.

    Sam's Club had the Premium White Granchildren in bulk. They keep it next to the Soylent Green aisle.

    Maybe the sequester was cancelled due to budget cuts?

    Everyone that was supposed to feel the "pain" of the sequester found a way to get a special exemption or their furloughs reduced if not completely stopped.

    The only place it actually hurt was the military.

    And that was the purpose if the whole thing from the start.

    Another thing that suffered were White House visits. The sequester, however, didn't hurt the Obama's vacation schedule.

    It is certainly being felt in the Washington area, and we anticipate it will get worse in 2014. While you all may celebrate that, it does impact real people with families.
