    I agree, when the economy is down and times are tough, our elected officials should have to cut back just like us "peons" do. Our president and his family have taken a total of 4 vacations so far this year! The presidents daughters (11 and 13 I believe) are currently enjoying Spring Break at the Atlantis resort in the Bahamas, a very expensive place. They were able to bring along a handful of friends and of course a bunch of security! All paid for by tax dollars! I find it shameful myself.

    Happy Easter to you and your family!

    I hear you about politicians... there was once a time when people took office to help run the country, then they went back home and went back to work in the real world! Now all we seem to have is career politicians, having never really worked a real job in their lives, and they think they know what's best for all of us common folk! Not only that, but they ram their ideas down our throats forcefully! Our current president is leading us down a path towards socialism, we're sending billions of dollars (that we don't have) to Muslim countries that routinely burn our flag and proclaim to want to see us all dead! Government agencies are stripping us of the rights granted to the citizens by the Constitution, rights, that as the Constitution states are "granted by our creator and are inalienable".

    The saddest part is that if someone speaks up against this president's policies, you are immediately labeled a racist, and it's worse for African Americans, if they speak against the president they are called names like "token, Uncle Tom, sell out, House Ni**er, etc". It's utterly ridiculous.
