I just  found  the  above rather  interesting...

It's  a   good  thing Obama didn't  listen  to  his  own advice and  adhere  to  his own  Buffet rule of  taxation.

Than again  hippo  crits    are  something..  so  are  hippo  ceo  and  presidents.

I  just  love how  they  like  to  Frack us    IE...

The government is now spending $2.2 billion a year to buy cell phones for $12.5 million low income people and to fund their monthly minutes. That’s up from $775,000 when Obama took office. The money comes from a $2.75 universal service charge levied on every phone bill.
It has been labeled the most wasteful of government programs because there is very little record keeping or accountability.

Because the money is there, the phones are passed out without verification of income and the monthly bills keep being paid without anyone checking eligibility.

Investigations have turned up examples of individuals with 10 to 20 phones, and more, all paid for by the taxpayers. The abuse is well-documented, but so far neither congress nor president have moved to end it.
The government also continues to commission portraits of bureaucrats even though Obama claims there’s so little discretionary money available he’s had to cancel public White House tours (though not his own golf trips.)


Over the past two years, the government has spent $400,000 on paintings of cabinet officers, including most recently $40,000 for a portrait of out-going EPA Chief Lisa Jackson and $22,500 for one of Agriculture Secretary Thomas J. Vilsack.

When  asked  about the frivolous expenditure from a department budget that Vilsack contends can no longer cover forest fire prevention, the secretary called it a “low ball” issue. Not so low ball if you’re the poor sucker who’s entire tax bill for the next few years will go toward paying for the portrait.


A government that would spend $400,000 on paintings of bureaucrats while running up a $1 trillion deficit is not one that respects taxpayer money.

Given all  the  seizures  of  items by  our  para military  police  in the  USA  I'm  almost  surprised  that  we  don't  have  union  cops  that  Obama  so  loves  driving  around  in 600k  lamborghini's  heading  to protect  unionized teachers  and firefighters  from   hunger by  bringing  them  Jimmy  John's  while  blowing  thru  red  lights  to get  them  their  sandwiches  super quick.

Wasn't  Dubai  close  to  going  bankrupt  just  a  few years  ago when  real  estate  crashed  and  loans  were  coming due ?

Don't  you just  love  international  bankers  who steal and  distribute.

I know  rant rant rant :)

     Its so sad that so many people put their lives on the line and pay some times  with those lives, that we have other people in many types of professions just out to take advantage of the rest of us by outright crooked means.  Honesty does pay by not having to worry which lie or lies you told that may trip you up.

      That the secert of real happiness!
