Y'know... my boss n his wife are from Bulgaria and lived under socialism/communism... they said the party elite were treated like royalty ... and then suddenly there was no more money. She said she didn't understand why the government ran out of money but she did notice that all the store shelves were empty within hours after the collapse of her socialist country. She said the turmoil lasted about 3 to 4 months; women losing their virtue is what she said. The unpaid police force tried in vain to put a stop to it she said but things like prostitution, theft, murder, rape etc... continued unabated. One thing which I thought poignant was that she survived for two weeks on a loaf of bread that she fried in re-used oil from an old pizza shop

We are a splintered people and obama is fueling it. Class, race, religion, politics, gender, old against young... wherever there is dissent obama is there stoking, stoking... is this the president you all want? Is this the America you all want? If so then fvck you. You are now my enemy.

Remember the Constitution people? That document that it was your sole duty as an American to read, understand and live by... I lived it for over two decades in the service of America and you ignorant savages couldn't be bothered to read a simple founding document less than 10 pages long... what a bunch of filth of course you idiots that voted for that socialist asshatt are my enemy. What else could you socialists possibly be to a man that loves liberty... ?
Socialism is the enemy of man. Obama promotes socialism. Obama is my enemy. Simple logic.

With the election safelly over, the Obamas are sparing no expense as they enjoy life in The White House.

Look, no one detested it more than I when the Carters sought to downplay the magnificence of The White House, serving hot dogs to visiting dignitaries and the like.  It's also completely understandable that, as the nation's first African American First Lady, Mrs. Obama would be invested in demonstrating what should be clear to all -- namely, that skin color has nothing to do with one's ability to be tasteful and elegant.

But in an era of tight budgets and economic suffering...
