So deserving of our pride . . . . :-*



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 plus additional expenses 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 suite at a 5-Star luxury hotel.



We only booked 70 rooms for our friends, staff and family.



Thank you also for the use of Air Force 2 and the 70 Secret Service personnel



who tagged along to be sure we were safe and cared for at all times.





Air Force 2 only used 47,500 gallons of jet fuel for this trip



and carbon emissions were a mere 1,031 tons of CO2.



It costs only $11,500 per hour to operate Air Force 2



and each additional plane for the other members of our party group.



These are only rough estimates, but they are close (who's counting?).



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.



I do appreciate your sacrifice 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.



Will write more from Martha's Vineyard



where we will spend our sixth vacation this year with more of our family and friends.

Cordially,



M. Obama

I can't remember any threads about government waste ever getting a lock warning as being inappropriate subject matter before and I don't see anything in the COC that applies.

Just sayin'

Wow. Some people need to get a sense of humor and learn to live life a little bit less tightly wrapped.[://














On second thought, I say out the cry babies Wingman so we can publicly humiliate them

Please lock it. I thought it funny and appropriate for the OKHTF but not the GD.
I don't want any problems for anyone else because of me.
Not that I don't resent this kind of BS but I've had my fill of it here.

It was probably just someone trolling the forum and hitting the report button to cause trouble. Dang Obama lovers.

The OP's post was just fine.

They must move slow.
I bought an Encore frame yesterday and had no problem.
I'll know for sure from now on that any denial will be because of my post here.
That means I'm on another list.....
I sure make a lot of them.

Someone did. That's the reason for the quotation marks.
