Funny that SLU's brother-in-law was sent packing when 10% of the Pentagon's cuts come "unspent" money accumulated from previous years
Once again it is shwn how gullible the Conservatives on this board are...living in their right wing echo chamber of beliefs while not looking at what the report actually says...and what is says is that there was a control group of children who did not participate in Head Start when they were 3 years old but did participate when they were 4 years old and they mostly caught up with the children who were in Head Start from the beginning...the most you could argue is that at that age perhaps children could start a year later see a minor setback by starting a year later...
"The preschool experiences of children in the 3-year-old cohort were very different in the age 4 year. Most of the children (both Head Start and control group) were in some type of center-based care by the second year, and with three small exceptions, the observed treatment and control differences disappeared in the age 4 year. That is, once the control group had access to Head Start, the earlier differences on the experience measures all but vanished..."
"With regard to social-emotional development, the early impacts found for the 3-year-old cohort appear to have continued into early elementary school. At the end of kindergarten, there is again evidence of less parent-reported hyperactive behavior and better social skills and positive approaches to learning (although the latter is merely suggestive evidence). At the end of 1st grade, there is moderate evidence of an increase in parent-child closeness and suggestive evidence of improved child-parent relationships."
Edit - here is the report, read section 9... http://www.acf.hhs.gov/sites/default/files/opre/hs_impact_study_final.pdf

Lurking on tRCMB since 1996
It is cool, he's coming to visit and ski and drink with us for a week since he has no place to report to now. Then a few other trips, taking his bike up the California coast. But let your obsession, insecurity, inferiority complex and overall douchebaggery take over. It just makes you dolts look like bigger idiots than you actually are to ignore reslity and instead count on a connie commentator....like the election.
But hey, fantasy and fiction boy, maybe you can claim you actually meant to say something else to avoid looking like a total ass again after bing owned because your obsession. Oh wait......

I managed to survive an entire weekend of being sequestered. Are there any other survivors that want to sound off and let us know how harrowing your experiences were?

Republicans offered Obama total discretion on how these cuts would be applied and Obama refused.
On now - that genius Janet Napolitano says we are losing the equivalent of 5000 border patrol agents. Since there are about 22,000 of them - that is just about a 23% cut. Hmmmm.....the math doesn't quite seem to add up here with the Obama administration again. How can this be?
From the blog Power Players: Power Players Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano says that, although safety is her top priority, there is no way around cutting back on border patrol agents monitoring the country's borders because of the across-the-board spending cuts, known as The number of border patrol hours that will [...]
And rightly so...Congress had already defined line item by line item how the cuts were to be applied. They could have redefined and passed a new bill, but to give their power and responsibility to the POTUS was questionable Consitutionally...which some members understood.
Enrico calls me fantasy and fiction boy after yet name dropping another fictitious VIP relative LOL...Naval intelligence brother-in-law, suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuurrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrreeeeeeeeeee ha ha ha ha...are you 2 going to hang out with your close cousin the Harvard Law Professor LOL
The thought of Enrico skiing the slopes with his brother-in-law Maverick who just got laid off is priceless LOL...

So now they're concerned about border security? How convenient
If you weren't so broke yourself you could be a good liberal and take care of him for the rest of his life.
Sounds like sequestration is a positive in his life: skiing, drinking, trips, biking the California coast.
according to SLU his brother-in-law is Naval Intelligence who reports to Top Gun
Maybe the brother in law exists, but he was more than likely let go due to the elimination of some other naval program which is coincidentally ending at the same time as the sequester. Most programs have funding already approved until April, and every article I have read said that sequester related furloughs wouldn't begin until next month because they required 30-60 days notice to go out to those affected. Finally, furloughs simply mean someone would see a reduction in days from 5 to 4, it doesn't mean they would lose their jobs altogether. Of course, if he didn't have a history of making stuff up, then denying it, we could possibly believe him.

Let me just reply on SLU's behalf:
"Prove me wrong".
OK, but I would love to hear his explanation of why somebody from the ONI would be assigned to the Top Gun training base
I'm sure he'd spin an epic beauty...."Oh so fantasy and Fiction boy chickenhawk who has never served knows more about the military than my brother-in-law...actually I was wrong about him, he wasn't intelligence he was in SEALS...and he's the one who shot Bin Laden too"
for those who are interested, Congress is already pushing through legislation that would "fix" the sequester. no surprise, there is nothing the folks in DC want less than cuts to defense spending (on both sides of the aisle).
I think we should take some of these people, and send 'em up to Bear Mountain for a picnic.
he drove up last night - hitting the coast later today, skiing tomorrow. Pub crawl on Sunday. Said that all training has been suspended and the F-15's are (literally) being shrink wrapped for now. $350,000 just to fuel up the planes. So, he's been spending his free time at Tahoe boarding and riding his Ducati. In fact, he said if the goes on a few more months into his scheduled deployment he and his squadron mates won't be able to go and that will really fuck up their training and long term paths. Yeah, nothing bad about the sequester happening here.
BTW, never said I had a cousin who was a Harvard Law Professor, that was just your pathetic imagination in response to being slammed down with your "Harvard Law School has not hired one person from a non top 10 law school" except for Elizabeth Warren (who I'm voting for a love with all of my heart). But then again when you were made a fool (as usual) you had to try and pull the bullwrinkle "I never said what I said." Good stuff, Fantasy and Fiction Boy.
Oh, and not the congressional GOP is complaining about the negative effects of the sequester in their districts.
Denial - more than just a river in Egypt for Wells Hall righties, especially Fantasy and Fiction Boy.
Now that sequestration creating real consequences, individual members are experiencing buyers remorse. The only problem is, until they change their underlying position on replacing sequestration, the only thing they can do about it is whine.
How are people surviving? Things are still pretty bleak around my neighborhood. The food stamp lines have dried up and people are somehow fending for themselves now.
Same here, the look of desperation on their faces is really noticeable. When will Obama save them from this horrible fate?
