Sequester painful: Obama administration cuts fireworks for Marines and won't allow it even when private company offers to do it for free

The Obama administration sure wants to make sure that these cuts hurt.  From KDKA in Pittsburgh:
Military veterans are upset after the annual Camp Lejeune fireworks show for military members and their families was cut.
What makes it even worse: A Pittsburgh area company offered to do the show for free, but the government said, thanks, but no thanks.
The military says the show meant for more than 47-thousand Marines and Sailors was cancelled due to federal cutbacks. . . .
The Zambelli Family has done the fireworks at Camp Lejeune before, and this year, after hearing they were cancelled due to federal money problems, they promised to do them for free. . . .

Not enough money to put on a free fireworks show...but enough to harass stage magicians into having a disaster plan for the rabbits used in their shows...http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2013/jul/1/agriculture-department-tells-magician-write-disast/
