I am so sick and tired of hearing about all the fascist, communist radicals whining about how social security and medicaid recipients may suffer when the debt ceiling isn't RAISED! Hey stupid! Why doesn't someone tell them - if they would bring all the US troops home from all the overseas countries we've spread them out to, cut out all the idiotic, stupid, useless grants going to study the sex lives of shrimp in Mauritius and fleas in Madrid and cut off ALL AID to ALL THE COUNTRIES out there who hate our guts (which is just about EVERY MUSLIM COUNTRY IN THE WORLD, including AFGHANISTAN!!!!) , kick the illegal immigrants OUT of the country NOW, secure our borders, GROUND Air Force One for about SIX MONTHS, limit the parties and all-expense-paid vacations of the current thugs living in the WHITE HOUSE, we would NOT BE IN A financial meltdown in the United States!(The little "thank you" note below is just a small GLIMMER of why the economy of the U.S. is going downhill!!! The President of the U.S. thinks that ALL Americans need to trim their budgets and tighten their belts EXCEPT HIM AND HIS partying, GLOBE-TROTTING WIFE of course!!!) They want to re-distribute YOUR WEALTH to him and his socialist, communist friends!
THANK YOU AMERICA!
Dear American Taxpayer
For only the second time in my adult life, I am not ashamed of my country. I want to thank the hard working American people for paying $242 thousand dollars for my vacation in Spain.
My daughter Sasha, several long-time family friends, my personal staff and various guests had a wonderful time. Honestly, you just haven't lived until you have stayed in a $2,500..00 per night private 3-story villa at a 5-Star luxury hotel.
Thank you also for the use of Air Force Two and the 70 Secret Service personnel who tagged along to be sure we were safe and cared for at all times. By the way, if you happen to be visiting the Costa del Sol, I highly recommend the Buenaventura Plaza restaurant in Marbella; great lobster with rice and oysters! I'm ashamed to admit the lobsters we ate in Martha's Vineyard were not quite as tasty, but what can you do if you're not in Europe, you have to just grin and bear it?
Air Force Two (which costs $11,351 per hour to operate according to Government Accounting Office reports) only used 47,500 gallons of jet fuel for this trip and carbon emissions were a mere 1,031 tons of CO2. These are only rough estimates, but they are close. That's quite a carbon footprint as my good friend Al Gore would say, so we must ask the American citizens to drive smaller, more fuel efficient cars and drive less too, so we can lessen our combined carbon footprint.
I know times are hard and millions of you are struggling to put food on the table and trying to make ends meet. So I do appreciate your sacrifices and do hope you find work soon.
I was really exhausted after Barack took our family on a luxury vacation in Maine a few weeks ago. I just had to get away for a few days.
Michelle (Moochelle) Obama
P.S. Thank you as well for the $2 MILLION dollar trip to Africa and India from which we just returned!
P.SS. Thank you, too, for that vacation trip to Martha's Vineyard; it was fabulous. And thanks for that second smaller jet that took our dog Bo to Martha's Vineyard so we and the children could have him with us while we were away from the White House for eleven days. After all, we couldn't take him on Air Force One because he might pee on some wires or something.
P.SSS. Oh, I almost forgot to say thanks also for our two-week trip to Hawaii at Christmas. That 7,000 square foot house was great!
Remember we all have to share the pain of these economic times equally! Love to -redistribute- share- the wealth.
Many Americans do NOT realize that the me-first, you-later EXTRAVAGANT lifestyle playing out before our eyes in the White House is exactly what happens in every single country where the Socialist-Communists take over! THERE IS NO MIDDLE CLASS! They destroy the middle class - impoverish them, enslave them - until a few people at the very TOP end up living like royalty at the expense of all those underlings who are working to support THEIR lifestyle!
