Random stuff for December 7, 2012
I read this morning where a liberal blogger doesn’t like the fact that Obama is responsible for the murders of Ambassador Stevens and the other three Americans in Benghazi. He claims “right wing extremists” falsely accuse Obama of this, and portray Obama and liberals of being Communists, Socialists, traitors and haters of America. All I can say is … it too damn bad. A duck is a duck. A duck walks, quacks and acts like a duck … thus we recognize it for what it is. So, if one acts like a Communist, Socialist, and commits traitorous acts, then I have the tendency to believe he is all those things and hates America.
Many of us know the “Royal First Family” … the Obamas, are soon going off on a 17-20 day, $4 million vacation. And don’t think for a second that Barack and Michelle are paying for it like liberals actually believe. (incredible, I know) Anyway, there’s a petition being circulated requesting that the Obamas forfeit their expensive vacation and devote the money to the victims of Hurricane Sandy, which seems like a reasonable request. I’m sure Barack and Michelle are more than willing to do just that, being the most benevolent couple on earth … I mean Obama is the “lord and savior” so this small act of kindness will be nothing for him.
Here is what the petition says:
On December 3, 2012, President Obama denied the request of Governor O’Malley and the entire Maryland congressional delegation to award Individual Assistance to Somerset County, Maryland to recover from Hurricane Sandy.
Somerset County is Maryland’s poorest county. The towns of Crisfield, Fairmount, and Deal Island were devastated by the hurricane, with flood waters causing widespread damage. These poor, working waterfront communities were already fragile from the decline of the seafood industry. Super Storm Sandy left them with no where to turn except FEMA for assistance.
For the $4 million it will cost taxpayers for the President to vacation in Hawaii, we could rebuild Somerset County. The President should stay home and send our tax money to Somerset County to rebuild.
Remember last March Malia Obama went on spring break to Mexico? Well that little trip cost taxpayers over $115,000.00! Judicial Watch published a report yesterday after a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit filed on September 20, 2012.
Malia Obama’s spring break trip evoked controversy after the Obama White House reportedly ordered the removal of press reports detailing the trip. On March 19,2012, numerous online press outlets reported that the president’s 13-year-old daughter, Malia Obama, was on a Spring Break trip to Mexico accompanied by 25 U.S. Secret Service Agents and as many as 12 of her friends. However, shortly after the press reports surfaced they were quickly removed from the Internet. The trip took place shortly after the Texas Department of Public Safety issued a statement advising students on Spring Break “to avoid Mexico.”
As reported by Politico:
The AFP, the Huffington Post and other websites have scrubbed a report about first daughter Malia Obama’s school trip. On Monday, the AFP reported that Obama’s daughter was on a school trip along with a number of friends and 25 Secret Service agents. The story was picked up by Yahoo, the Huffington Post, and the International Business Times, as well as UK publications like the Daily Mail and the Telegraph and other overseas publications like The Australian. But on Monday night, the story had been removed from those sites.
In an update to this story, Politico published a statement issued by Kristina Schake, Communications Director to the First Lady, indicating that the removal of these news stories was “a White House effort:”
“From the beginning of the administration, the White House has asked news outlets not to report on or photograph the Obama children when they are not with their parents and there is no vital news interest. We have reminded outlets of this request in order to protect the privacy and security of these girls,” stated Ms. Schake.
MORE RIGHT ABOUT HERE
I see the unions in Michigan are really not pleased that Michigan is about to become a “right to work” state. Basically what that means is the Michigan law will take away unions’ ability to fire workers for not paying them.
Unions will no longer be able to bolster their political power by taking money from people who don’t support their agenda. If approved, Michigan would become the nation’s 24th right-to-work state.
I actually saw where one liberal blogger complained the union workers (and non-union) would be getting union “benefits without paying for them.” He also asked the question if this is going to lead to working for $.50 (fifty cents) an hour again?!
