Obama tells greatest April Fool’s joke to date!

On Friday, President Obama told the greatest April Fool’s joke in history. Here it is:

“I call upon all Americans to observe this month with programs and activities to improve their understanding of financial principles and practices,” Obama said in an official proclamation released Friday.

“My Administration is dedicated to helping people make sound decisions in the marketplace,” he said.

“Together, we can prepare young people to tackle financial challenges–from learning how to budget responsibly to saving for college, starting a business, or opening a retirement account,” he said.

Pure comedy gold!

No money for WH tours, but plenty of money for Obama daughters to vacation at high end resort

Even though there is no money for WH tours and claims that this administration will have to shut down air traffic control towers and furlough meat inspectors their turns out to be plenty of money to send the Obama daughters and their Secret Service contingent to the Atlantis resort.  I ran a quick price check for a family of four going from DC to the resort for a week. using the lowest cost options for the dining plan, airfare, airport transfers and room the trip would cost $6032.75 and that is without any of the extras. The price only goes up from there.

Here is my recommendation to everyone out there who is royally ticked off that our tax dollar are being spent this way while we are being told that we, the average American citizen, can expect longer lines at the airports (if we can even afford to go on vacation) and less safe food. Contact your Representative in the House and demand that they use the power of the purse to cut the tax dollars (your money) used by the President and his family for trips like this, golf outings and the lavish superstar WH parties. After all isn’t it high time the President feel the same pain that he expects all of us to feel? Isn’t it high time he make a “shared sacrifice” that he expects all of us to make? Let’s get our Representatives to act and put this up to an on the record vote.

Obama tells donors to give money so politicians can ignore their voters

In a stunning statement to a group of donors at an Organizing for Action event, dear leader said the following (h/t Daily Caller):

“If you have a senator or a congressman in a swing district who is prepared to take a tough vote … on immigration reform, or legislation around background checks for guns, I want to make sure that they feel supported and that they know that there are constituencies of theirs who agree with them, even if they may be getting a lot of pushback in that district,” he declared to the roughly 70 attending donors who are fueling his unprecedented group, dubbed Organizing For Action.

Translation: Give me money so I can try to help re-elect politicians who are willing to disregard the will of their constituents. So much for representative government.

I do have another question, how many of the donors made the $500,000 club?
