Here I am still driving the same truck I bought in 1994 and somehow it manages to get me around just fine … sure I’d like to have a new truck with all the latest fancy toys on it but unlike the government I realize that I don’t have money to piss away on a new ride so I just keep what I have and keep going.
Oh but not our spoiled whiny cry baby president … he has to have the latest and greatest of everything as long as we are paying for it.
The armor includes 8-inch plates capable of stopping an improvised explosive device, or IED, and 5-inch multi-layer windows that make the doors as heavy as those on a 757 jet. The car is sealed against biochemical attacks.
Although details of the presidential limo are classified for security reasons, various reports say that it features James Bond-style options, including a night vision system. It also carries communications gear and, in the trunk, a blood bank matching the presidentâ€™s type.
Special loops replace door handles, which allow Secret Service agents to hold on when running alongside the car. Goodyear run-flat tires fit into extra-large wheel wells.
Meanwhile we don’t have money for…
Tours of the White house for school children cancelled.
Military fireworks displays on the 4th of July (which a company volunteered to do FREE)
Some unemployment benefits
Funding for Navajo schools.
Tuition for soldiers, aid for homeless veterans
Head Start programs
Air Force Museum tours
And yes even wildfire are blamed on the sequestration
Do I need to go on? I looked by searching “cuts due to sequestration” and nowhere did I find ANY CUTS TO SPENDINGÂ on congress or the White House or Obama’s lifestyle of the rich and famous … I know you are not surprised but I looked for cuts to Congress and the White but I found congress spending $3700 A DAY on snack habits! Obama spending $3000 a night room in Ireland! $100 MILLION on a wasted trip to Africa! Obama White House parties!
See sequester was designed to hurt John and Jane Citizens and piss off the general public and allow Obama to fake concern and blame his opponents, namely the GOP – see Obama can’t give up his lifestyle long enough as a big spending pimp daddy to make it believable. So while the sequester screw with aspects of your life, rest assured that member of congress and the the liar in the White House will not give up one damn thing, not their snacks, not the cars, not their perks, not their trips … NOTHING … so this summer enjoy your staycation and ramen noodles. I know I will.
