This is not "look at me, notice me." There might have been some of that in there, but the target for this was not their friends and look at how rich we are. This was right to us. This is mocking us. There's no question about it. There's an arrogance here that is unmistakable to me, and they did this 'cause they clearly were not afraid that anything would happen to them. They're probably not the sharpest knives in the drawer, order of fries short of a Happy Meal. But still, it was a designed poke in the eye at the people. It was, "Look at what we're getting away with using your money. Look at how we are screwing you. Look at how we are taking advantage of you." No question in my mind.
Until the collapse.
this is what will happen when you increase the budgets of these agencies by 100 - 200 percent
Rush is right. Another freeper called this kind of stuff psychological warfare. We have so many things to be stark raving angry about that our heads are spinning.
America has its own Nomenklatura. How nice.
How many lampposts in (202)?
I have to disagree, this wasn’t an in your face thing...these people think they are entitled. I’ll bet they never gave a thought to what people would say/ this type of thing has been going one a long time. they aren’t the first group of government employees to do it and they won’t be the last.....
You can’t blame George Bush for something that you and your administration is responsible for as American’s are too smart for your Ponzi game of blame. The blogs are full of your record and we will have to educate America as this article from the the Politico in 2009 does.
“OBAMA TAKES ANOTHER DIG AT LAS VEGAS”
“Obama said that people should not “blow a bunch of cash in Vegas” during a tough recession.”
I guess since Obama made the statement in 2009 its now Happy Times are Here Again in America!
He also said at the time.
“”You can’t get corporate jets. You can’t go take that trip to Las Vegas or go down to the Super Bowl on the taxpayers’ dime,”
Well tell that to Warren Buffet and his Net Jets that are not paying their fair share of taxes. Seems that Obama wants the Buffet rule for wealthy Americans. He needs to get Mr. Buffet to start paying his taxes. Seems that Buffet avoids taxes buy not issueing dividends on his stock. Hmm... He has the game figured out.
