Well, the proclamation came out last Friday, so not sure if this is an advance April Fool joke. Just seems so much like it, but then again, this president is quite bold about making hypocritical proclamations . . .

Another remark to add to his “What A Dick!” list.

Every word he utters is an insult.

I thought this had to be an April Fool’s joke. Obama is an arrogant fool.

Here’s the lesson that 0bama would teach -

Get on the dole. Get on every program possible.

Then, make some income on the side and buy all the bling you want because all your needs are being paid for by others.

I could give up food for 6 months and buy a pair of shoes. That’s a good balance.

Will this be followed in May by “How to Choose an Intelligent, Articulate, and Clean Vice President Month”?

I’m reminded of something I haven’t thought since the Clinton ‘Wonder Years’.
Words from an old English criminal case, a judge describing a defendant:
“ ... the kind of blackguard who would steal the pennies from his dead mother’s eyes for the purchase of flowers to present to a harlot.”

Well, I went to the WH website and this is NOT an April Fools joke. The first thing one must do in “National Financial Capability Month” is to produce a WRITTEN budget that zero out of 535 folks will like and vote for. Do this and you too can be on the way to capably moving toward a massive bankrupcy and endemic poverty fot those for whom you budget.

I’m with you. I thought it was an April fools joke. I really want our children taught budget responsibility from this joke of an administration. What an absurdity.

Or a No-Limit EBT card?

The White House pretending to teach young Americans how to budget responsibly is even more laughable than the notion of the Department of Energy teaching the oil companies how to find and produce energy. Neither has anything of benefit to impart in either area.
