I mean c’mon…$50,000 to fly to New York from DC? It could have only cost more if you would have taken a taxi driven by one of those shady NYC cabbies.
I really don’t understand the continued relentless consumption of US treasure by our politicians. Getting gang banged by a solid mixture of Dems and Republicans is getting old. How about we let the US government fall into bankruptcy? Hell, they have been losing money hand over fist forever and certainly show no signs of learning even the simplest financial lesson.
Granted, Barry and Michelle looked great, like they do, on their night on the town. This alone will placate most of our celebrity obsessed nation. “Oh, look at her dress! Is it a Pladinky?” (I don’t actually know any designers so I improvised).
In the meantime, GM goes belly up and corporate management and the UAW show no signs of having a clue as to how they will move forward in a successful manner. Oz help the common shareholder who was completely wiped out. And before you think they are all deserving of losing their money, think of all the elderly folks who don’t keep track of such things. Blame them if you want but they are getting screwed in a big way.
Of course, I suspect instead of focusing on the continued financial meltdown, we can spend the next few days talking about the abortion doctor that got whacked. (Yeah, it’s a non-sequitor but don’t try to stop me). Admit it pro-life people, you are secretly happy that the guy got drilled. An eye for an eye and all of that, no? Besides, if Jesus didn’t want him killed he wouldn’t have let it happen. So, in essence, it’s God’s will. Hallelujah and pass the salvation.
Alright, back to my main rant. Can politicians please at least try to hide their ridiculous spending? Could you at least fake like you care about the welfare of your constituents? I know you don’t care but I want a kiss after I get fu**ed. Just call me old fashioned.
Can you imagine the outrage if Dubya had done the same thing? For all of his stupid ideas and actions, he at least played the game most of the time and counted his money in private. Barry is making no such effort and it is really starting to get on my nerves.
