As always, “shared sacrifice” is for the rubes, and not our elite leaders:

While the dance-off between the first lady and DeGeneres had its fair share of entertaining moments and positive media coverage, afterward the White House press corps pelted the president’s press secretary with questions about why the first lady and the president had taken separate flights to the area on the same day.

According to a recent Air Force estimate, Air Force One costs $228,288 an hour to fly, making a four-to five-hour flight to Los Angeles roughly $1 million each way.

And before we know it these same people will be trying to scare America into doing something about man-made climate change (or maybe that should be “first lady and president-made climate change”).

Greta Van Susteren rightly called out the hypocrisy:


Did the dog get his own aircraft too this time?

    Waiting for the hipster/20-something/under privileged 47%'er demographic's outrage in 3… 2… nevah…

    Of course conservatives will refuse to be silent, but bring The Awkward as Obama's core support mechanism revels in their role as: Mob member's Mother. Don't look for HER to go crying to the police!?

    Besides, she ain't SEEN nuthin', she ain't HEARD nuthin' and she damn sure ain't SAYIN' nuthin'. This way we become "a bunch of over zealous cops trying to make a NAME for ourselves at their poor, 'innocent' son's expense!" Hey Ma! Can we borrow a knife and some shovels? What 'sound' from the trunk?

    Comical huh?

    OT; but equally 'comical':

    As Oregon, DC and other states/municipalities see $ signs flash before their eyes at weed's legalization, we can get ahead of the CURVE on this one! Begin by asking a) breathless/mindless supporters and b) beleaguered conservatives that are simply TIRED of fighting, ghey marriage, pubic school bond issue # 2,336 weed ballot after weed ballot [ IF ]

    Are they visualizing this will be like 'Nevada' and the way gaming subsidized tax payers all those years? That Weed Inc. will "fund" everything from roads to schools to hospitals and?

    Or… is this going to be more like the mechanism Dims have enjoyed for over 30+ years as they exploit teacher's union dues to fund Dimcandidate's runs to press an ever more Progressive agenda to hire more teachers and collect more union dues to…?

    What I THOUGHT.

    Actually it is worse than that. Here in Colorado, they are finding that a lot of the sales are to those on welfare (and not just welfare $'s from Colorado as they have also found that welfare recipients from other states neighboring states are traveling to Colorado on tax $'s). So the tax incentive is a wash when it is tax $'s paying for the weed. That is the dirty little secret they are not telling the other states when they talk about all the new revenue from weed.

    But it's an absolute GOLD MINE..! We're on Easy Street! A guy on the checkout lane at the base exchange [retired FLAKE] TOLD me so!? It's exceeded all expectations for the YEAR and that's just in the first QUARTER.

    Yeah, its THEIR 'money'. Prog's stumped for this, got out in the street all ACORN-style, signed petition's, organized communities and whatnot so why SHOULDN'T they be the ones determining where that 'windfall' gets spent?

    If it weren't for 'conservatives' standing in the WAY all this time, this "revenue stream" would have been in place YEARS ago!? Just think of all the "Head Start"/midnight basketball/Planned Parenthood 'programs' ( read endless BOONDOGGLE ) we could 'fund'? Who knew gettin' loaded was so 'beneficial'?

    And with the prices that are being charged ($200+ an ounce), a lot of potheads have returned to their old dealers. Especially when you consider it is no longer illegal to possess it in Colorado. My guess is that this year we will see a huge drop in "revenue stream" as even the welfare kings/queens return to their old dealers and buy it without the taxes added on. The only people that will still buy it at the "legal" shops will be the out-of-state- "pot tourists".

    Right, Silly Valley tech start-up [overnight] 'gurus' looking for all the "experience life has to offer". Kind of like Mark Zuckerberg reserving an air conditioned pavilion at Burning Man.

    Slumming AND puttin' on the Ritz. Most Welfare types get what, 5-$600 month?

  7. Truesoldier__ on March 17th, 2015 10:36 am

    It depends on the state. I know in WA ST, welfare food stamps only could be above $1000 a month, so I can only imagine what the welfare $'s were. Not to mention, through the USDA they can also get an "interest only" home built for them. They never own it as they only pay the interest on the mortgage and once they figure that out they let the house got to crap.
