    Geez blue...I am sure Michelle Obama is the FIRST EVER wife of a president who traveled with (or without) her husband on official business at government expense..(including air fair or even air fare!)

    And I am sure that this is the FIRST TIME EVER a gift has been given to a head of government of another country and has been paid for by the US government.

    Silly boys.

    An effing iPod?
    I guess classy is put on hold for the next 4 years.
    Why not a DVD player with the X-Men trilogy?


    Shoulda had Nancy Pelosi with them too. They could have saved money by all jamming into the smaller and cheaper ride!

    Hey, NP could have taken her four aides and all the stuff needed to make her look human.

    GWB was many things, but I'm positive "Classy" wasn't one of them.

    I would actually be suprised if you even recognise the sarcasm you or your cheerleading squad post on a regular basis as such.

    I have to post this here because it kinda fits in with the title of the thread.

    I heard about the story of a group of firefighters who banned together to take a few dollars less on their paychecks in order to help out with the budget and keep from having other FFs to be cut from the payroll.

    There have been other stories like this-are you listening UAW?-that show that many of us still have a sense of community and care for our co-workers and neighbors.

    Here in Lost Angeles some teachers banded together to propose some ideas about saving money and jobs. The union didn't go for it!

    Now, I worked union for years and have to say that there are some benefits to being employed in that fashion, but I have seen too many people get screwed becuase the union and management can't seem to remember the workers-they only care for what they will lose as far as power, money and political influence.

    The news reported that many people see the recession as 'being not as bad' because we have a new president. I am truly amazed at all the wonderful things he has done, singlehandedly, to lull us into the belief that he has made all the difference.

    - ----- I ---- my----.


    I am waiting for the revolution, it's not the gun-toting, end-of-the-worlders that are thought to rise up and take our country back.

    I'd like to think it has nothing to do with some dopey couple in power, or the AWs that we send to D.C. becuase they have spoken a good came.

    I see that the people are starting to take back the communities, cities and maybe even the states they live in.

    The people who make a huge deal out of the money that the Gov't. is passing out, and want to know why they are not getting any are the Darwin Nominees for the next awards Email.

    They'll fold up their tents and move on quietly into the night.

    I am putting my money on the quiet people who know what they have to do to stay afloat. Hopefully, these days will be a lesson to those who are struggling, those who give up and the rest of us who soldier on and have to pick up the slack for the idiots who caused this mess.

    I just have to pay attention to all the crackpot politicos who will take the credit for 'getting us through this crisis'.

Some people act, not out of love, but out of fear and of having to be right, i.e., "Well, that's the way it is because and I don't question it." Look at how many people had put their faith in not eating meat on Fridays, only to be told later that it's ok now. The rule has been rescinded. Questioning is good. Blind acceptance, IMO, is folly and oft times dangerous. If my God can't stand up to a little scrutiny, how powerful can s/he be and why would I put my faith, my trust in a deity like that? The tested quality of our faith works out endurance.

    I'd think Satan would hold a Donner Party Party!


    Tastes like chikin!

    I have to laugh at all the talk about BO 'bowing' to the emir or whoever that joker was.


    I had a good chuckle at the film clip - BO had dropped the keys to AF One, that was the reason for the deep flex in front of that quack.

    I thought back to the rules of flying/displaying the flag and know that no matter what happens, Old Glory never is dipped or lowered for anyone or anything.

    So, the physical figurehead of the country seems to have a spine, but may not know when to make it stiff?

    I have been trying to find the post you made when George W. kissed the king of Saudi Arabia and held hands with him.

    Oddly...I can't seem to find it....

    A kiss and holding hands, IIRC is a sign of respect and friendship in arab cultures. Kissing the ring is a sign of subjegation or that you are beneath that person, not a very good impression for the POTUS to give to arabic cultures.
    I have a HUGE SIG!!!!

    Just curious, does anyone know if President Obama bowed to Queen Elizabeth or any other heads of state?
