Who’s poor?

It was pointed out to me this morning that somewhere around half of Americans are poor or low income so I thought I would show ya’ll what the ‘elite’ are doing to ‘help’.

    Just so you know, Mooch leaving before her hubby is SOP – every vacation she leaves before he does on a private jet paid for by American tax payers.

    So, what gives? Why is there this symbiotic relationship between the current White House and these same financial institutions that they blamed for the crisis?

    That is what 60 Minutes asks. Who is going to be investigated? Who is going to be arrested? Department of Justice seemed to have no substantive answers for them, apart from, “The wheels of justice grind slowly.” Furthermore, 60 Minutes seemed to have no real clue either. There were no questions about the key connection here: the relationship between the government, Wall Street, credit services and the large banks. This is the unholy alliance. I’m not talking about Democrats versus Republicans here; I am talking about government and the many financial institutions which were intimately involved in this crisis.

    The government tells banks to give out loans to people who can’t afford to pay the loans back just so the poor and minorities have an equal chance of owning a home then when banks get bailed out they are blamed for the mess. It began waaaay back in Carter’s admin, too. Another terrorist loving socialist progressive.

      The one who planted the time bomb is still alive. Arrest Jimmy “The Peanut” Carter. Then arrest every living president and member of congress for failing to undo what the above mentioned scum did.

    it, it is okay.

    We now have another example of someone producing very good information and then failing to learn the obvious lesson. Catherine Rampell of the New York Times wrote about how politicians used to be much more willing to increases taxes.

    She obviously wants readers to conclude that bad, mean, wicked Republicans are being too dogmatic because they won’t agree to big tax hikes. But the chart she prepared tells a completely different story. The only budget agreement that actually produced a balanced budget was the 1997 deal, and that deal contained tax cuts rather than tax increases!

    The flight alone is priced at more than $60,000, according to government estimates. But that’s only the beginning. The additional cargo flight that often accompanies the first lady on such a trip must also be paid for, as well as the limos and other accoutrements it will contain.

    As she will be separated from the presidential security bubble, Michelle will require her own entourage of Secret Service protection, in addition to the staffers who will be leaving early to go to Hawaii with her.

    The total tab will certainly be in excess of $100,000, and possibly quite a bit more.

      Last year the Obama’s Christmas trip to Hawaii cost more than $1 million. He covered the cost of his family’s accommodation, but the rest was covered by the taxpayers. The bill to house Secret Service agents and Navy Seals in beach front accommodation stretched to $16,800. A further hotel bill of $134,400 covered 24 White House staff staying in the Moana Hotel at a rate of $400 a day. The estimate, by the Hawaii Reporter, also included $250,000 for local police overtime, $1 million for the president’s own round trip flight to Hawaii on Air Force One, and $10,000 for a local ambulance to accompany the presidential motorcade, and once again Moochies Hair Dresser and Make-up Artist were counted as her “White House Staff Members”

    As reported by John Hayward at Daily Events, “The top 25 recipients of ERRP money accounted for over half of the total funding. First in line was the United Auto Workers, who already received the gift of General Motors at gigantic taxpayer expense.”

      The WH has even been so kind as to place a “calculator” at the top of the page, so the visitor, who presumably will swallow the line that the ERRP is on the rails and running just fine, can quickly discover how deeply the axe will fall on him or her should a cornerstone of Obama’s Entitlement Nation campaign strategy be stripped away (and can’t you just hear David Axelrod praying for exactly that to happen?).

    With thousands of families struggling to raise funds for Christmas, you would think the Obamas might manage a little thriftiness.

    But today, Michelle Obama and her two daughters fly to Hawaii for a 17-day holiday – days before the president joins them.

    The majority of people who are poor in America are poor because they knowingly have made poor decisions. That may be ugly and uncomfortable to the soulless, politically correct masters of denial, but it’s the truth nonetheless.

    Being poor is largely a choice, a daily, if not hourly, decision. If you decide to drop out of school, fail to learn a skill, have no work ethic or get divorced, a life of poverty is often the consequence. The children of parents who choose a life of poverty quite often pay a horrible price, and so does all of America.
