    I don’t usually share politically themed updates on Facebook, but I just shared that video. I’m still laughing about it.

    I see he has some other videos in the series which are great viewing too.

    Sorry, but I laughed harder at the guy in the comments who is out of equities, selling gold and buying toilet paper and tampons, ’cause he’s gonna be rich like Warren Buffet who’s doing the same! Now, that’s funny!

    Biggest laugh-out-loud moment was the President claiming the cuts would set medical research back a generation.

    That’s great work right there.

    A friend of mine asked me the other day about sequester. I now have to revise my answer.

    Rush’s great concept – the “low-information voter” is never going to see this. 

    I thought the funniest line was when he was looking off to the side and said “…they’re in charge now”, but the problem is that they are, and they’re never going to see this, or care or understand if they did. 

    I like the guy though.

    If you can be that laconic while still insightful and funny you have a unique talent that a hollering, indignant, gesticulating Jon Stewart never had.

    Not only funny but insightful and informative. Consider the eye-opening comparison to the mechanics of the recent housing bubble. From the on-screen bullet points at 4:16:

    Predatory lending to U.S.A.

    -We can’t repay loans.

    -Low teaser rates (0.1% on 90-day Treasury bills)

    -Flipping debt to Federal Reserve

    Great video. I asked a liberal co-worker how he was preparing to make it through the sequester, was he going to go stock up on canned goods or anything. He just laughed. When I said “Look, it’s about 2.5% of the federal budget, going forward!” He said “That much, I can’t believe they are cutting that much!” I swear, it’s a lost cause. And this guy is pretty dang smart.

    He’s very funny and I’d like to see him get a show like Colbert’s or Stewart’s. He needs to bring some dorky facial expressions into his repertoire, however. C and S are always smirking at the camera as a signal to watchers that they just heard a joke. Carolla does it too. Maybe purists think this is lame, but it’s part of the humor, and I think is needed for a national show.

    Oh, this guy is very good. I hope he gets attention.

    The beauty of being a conservative comedian must be the wealth of untouched material. I’ll bet the problem is where to start.

    Epic. The rough part here is realizing that he could do a 4-hour show each day on all of this and never run out of material, charts, graphs, or video of politicians signing off on policy that dooms us all.

    Barry has really warmed up to his lies now, hasn’t he? He’s fully embracing them, with open arms.

    Why, again, should a federal budget cut lay off a single teacher, anywhere? And if so, if it’s true, why did Barry create the sequester in the first place, since he’s the one who’s basically OK’d the axing of teachers, firefighters, policemen, Jedi, community organizers, etc….etc..etc.

    I had never heard of David before; he has a great sense of humor, though. And some sound ideas… I got a bit distracted watching his eEconomics series.

    Listening to the clips of Obama, the entire government runs on the 85 billion that will be cut. Why not save that and cut the 98.2 percent that is not sequestered.
