#1 Obama warns disabled veterans prolonged sequester could put their benefits in jeopard08-10-2013, 11:15 PM
President Obama took his case for ending the sequester to hundreds of disabled veterans Saturday, saying he protected their benefits from the “reckless” cuts to the federal budget but suggesting next year might be different.The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

I've just got one thing to say...
FUCK YOU OBAMA.
Protected benefits? I'll remember that when my BAH is cut, and your veto'ing bills that give me more then a 1% pay raise.In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.
In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

Late fees: Taxpayers foot the hefty bill for Obama’s talk-show tour
hen it comes to late-night comedy shows, President Obama is a prolific guest, but taxpayers might not be laughing along with him.Mr. Obama’s televised chat Tuesday on “The Tonight Show” with Jay Leno in Los Angeles was his 10th appearance on a TV talk show while in office, outpacing all other presidents and hosts since the days of John F. Kennedy and Jack Paar in the early 1960s.
The goal of these appearances is partly to boost the president’s image and partly to promote his agenda. Taxpayers foot the bill for Mr. Obama’s high-cost travel on Air Force One.
At $180,000 per flight hour to operate the presidential aircraft, the trip cost taxpayers more than $1.8 million just for the flying time to California and back. That doesn’t include two 50-minute flights in California on Marine One, the presidential helicopter; or the cost of lodging dozens of White House staffers and Secret Service agents overnight, or the cost of 20-vehicle motorcades at the various stops.

Critics Complain About Obama's Luxury Vacation in Martha's Vineyard
Published: August 10th 2013, 11:30am
Today President Barack Obama, along with First Lady Michelle and daughters Malia and Sasha will be flying up to Martha's Vineyard, the popular vacation island for the elite off the coast of Massachusetts, for a much needed summer vacation. While Congress embarked on its five-week break last week, this is the only time off the president gets in the summertime, and I'm sure it will be spent with plenty of golf sessions, days on the beach, and family ice cream runs. Of course, though, it seems poor Barack can't take a step without haters coming out of the woodwork.
A plethora of Republican lawmakers have already take a break from their August recess to criticize Obama for a taking an expensive on-week vacation while million of Americans are struggling financially. The president pays for food and souvenirs himself, while it's the taxpayers that eat the cost of Air Force One and the travel expenses of the Secret Service. The $7.6 million estate of Chicago private equity executive and Democratic donor David Schulte that the Obamas are renting this year is coming out of their own pockets.

Once again people, what possibly made Americans believe that this individual was the most qualified person we had to lead us, are we honestly this fucking stupid?

hussein isn't a President, he's a tribal chief. He looks like one. He talks like one. He acts like one.
Four boxes keep us free: the soap box, the ballot box, the jury box, and the cartridge box.

In the very same speech Obama said:
"Don’t let them fool you. No one is taking away your benefits. Your veterans’ healthcare is safe. We’re not reducing veterans’ access to healthcare, we’re expanding it. That’s the truth."
Now wait a second. Sequestration is going to take away their healthcare, but their healthcare is expanding without any threats to it.
Explain that one to me.
Needless to say, we know the truth. Obama is gutting the military’s Tri-Care healthcare plan and much more.
Also same speech.
The president also told the veterans the government is making progress in reducing the backlog of disability claims but acknowledged the slow pace
It now stands at 245,000 as of last December.Rest In Peace America

Politicians able to look a crowd in the face and say one thing while their actions reveal they are doing the exact opposite eventually get exposed.
But with today's complicit press and low information voters I doubt exposure is even possible.
Which reminds me of the Ukrainian farmers sent to Siberia death camps under Stalin. They would franticaly write Uncle Joe letters alerting him of their unjust circumstance never knowing that it was Stalin's decision to send them there in the first place. Seems history repeats as we all prepare to find out what is in ObamaCare
Such is the fate of the Low Information voter.
