    "Sequestration" is not about "losing". It's about living within means. Did you ever borrow 20 pesos from your 2nd floor neighbor for another ice - cream? Would you consider not taking those 20 pesos "loosing" ice - cream? Well, imagine, in order to give you those 20 pesos your 2nd floor neighbor needs to go out on the blog and beg the passers by for 20 pesos. Get over it, Chemy. Sequester may be a scary word. It might be coming over like a scolding parent of an old school as opposed to more affable neo - generation buttons. Nevertheless, the wisdome if universal and isn't all that unknown or un - healthy. Living within means, if you will sequester, needs to start at your own door. Not berated in public. Because when used properly it's a good thing. My fear, however, that after decent economic indicators of 2012 sequester will be used to steal earnings of rising generation for arms races, which are right now in such a swing, Earth did not see arm race of a scale we are in the midst of right now. So, there is some room for analysis and carefull examination of facts. But don't take everyone for a newby, Sir. Living within means, as sequesters were consieved, is not Israel's enemy by any measure.
