June 30, 2013

And while the messiah was on his family Africa trip, a week after the family European trip, the worst president ever hands off another $7billion in Africa for extension cords. All while he attempts to kill the US coal power industry.

Now now, we all know the "sequestration cuts" were because of a dumb, lazy, out of touch, selfish ( I could go on) Congress. : )

As part of the "sequestration cuts" that Obama made because government could not expand at the rate that they really wanted, they cut things like military flyovers. Meanwhile, we still send billions of dollars to countries who hate us.

And 100 million dollars to go to Africa HAHAHAHA Oh please they give them away as gifts on Wheel Of Fortune! Stop listening to Rush Limbaugh. He is a crazed oxy/******e addict, which has been proven in court. When you repeat what he says, well it's a dead give away....."Know thy enemy".

That is not true. That's a Presidential visit just like Bush had done 3 times before him and Clinton and old man Bush and Reagan and blah blah blah. Got it! And I grew up next to the Air Base and it has been cancelled tons of times ( for decades at times) over the last 45 years, where have you been? Apparently not here!

Obama cancels 4th of July celebrations all over the country, at Chicago Naval Base, Pearl Harbor 4th cancelled,, Fort Bragg, Camp Lejeune,Air Force Academy--all over the USA Obama has cancelled celebrations,

As pointed out Obama's 100 million dollar vacation for his family was ok,

Destroying America everyday, I know people that a mistake and voted for Obama, they now understand this wimp of a man is not rooting for Americans,

Look! Up in the Sky! It's a flyover! Can't see it? That's because it's Air Force one flying over Africa. Now go back to your cake.

Family, This is not a vacation for him. It is a Presidential trip. Do you know the difference? Kind of like when Bush went there and gave all them Aids stricken, out of control breeders $Billions$ of our money? Where were you? Oh, that's right......BAAAAAAA!

The $100 Million dollar obama family vacation is not necessary either.

What bang is America getting for our 100 million bucks from these power house nations the royal family is visiting?

Here is your answer William. It is because the Flyovers are not necessary. Heck, the whole base is probably not necessary. Obama's Africa trip on the other hand is. Got it?

I grew up right across the rd from the air base an had the fly over an the air shows an then they stopped for probably 20 years so boo hoo. They haven't been doing then that long again, just a few short years. Besides its very very expensive. If it's 100k to fly over to look for pot im thinking its millions to fly over jets just to look pretty.
