Where Your Tax Money Really Goes

. Wednesday, December 23

Feast your eyes on the Obamas’ Winter White House. This gorgeous Hawaiian get-away rents for an unbelievable $4,000 per night. That price doesn’t include the cost of paying all the Secret Service and other security that this little “vacation escape” is going to need just because.

Just imagine the steam blowing out of my ears when I see this little ‘news’ tidbit after reading a smoke-blowing headline about Geithner seeing US job growth by spring.

That decadent get-away costs for one night what it takes me over two months to earn, and there are 90% more earners like me than there are those that can afford something like this.

Now, don’t waste my time by telling me that Obama knows or understands or can relate to what the majority of us experience on a daily basis.

As far as job growth looking up by spring…  I sure hope it does because that’s about the time that all extensions on unemployment benefits are scheduled to be cut.

So, send the President on vacation while he bites the hands that feed him.

Unbelievable. We are digressing back to a monarchy, looks like.

Technically, I don't our tax dollars go to anything except to the Federal Reserve, toward the interest incurred on the national debt since, what, the Vietnam War era.

Crabby Lady, you are probably right. Things have been rolling downhill faster and faster.

Laura, greetings returned. How's the out-of-control big-wig spending where you're at?

Politicians and big company bosses get greedy once in a while, no sense for the little man out there.

Merry Christmas to you and your loved ones!

Came from CMF Spikes, hope you get a spike in comments too from the traffic!

Oh, you said the word: greedy!! Bingo. Is there no end to the amount of $$ out there so that this horrible disease, greed, dies out?

Sigh. So much for change we can believe in, eh? It certainly seems to me to be business as usual. I'm firmly convinced these yahoos won't be satisfied until we own nothing and they own everything.

Theresa Komor said...

Yeah, it's still the mighty line between "haves" and "have nots."

So where is the recession? Great post!

Visiting you through Spike!

The recession only reaches up to the first 90 percent of the population. After that, there is none.

Welcome to everyone from Spike!
