Whether or not you like Glenn Beck, he called this one a long time ago.
EXCERPT: “An International Monetary Fund official said the Fund’s participation in the second Greek bailout is essential to make it work. But he also told journalists that the complex 237 billion euro ($314 billion) deal agreed Tuesday remains at immediate risk to the need to get a large commitment from private sector holders of Greek bonds to participate in a debt writedown.”
This means that the US is on the hook for a Greek bailout since WE fund the IMF to the tune of 45%, even though WE ARE BROKE, just like we pay a huge chunk of OUR MONEY to the corrupt scumbags in the UN. Whenever they talk about the IMF, that is simply libcode for the USA to shell out greenbacks. Not only that but the Fed does not answer to Congress so they can do whatever they want, like getting Turbo Tax Timmy to print more worthless money and since the Fed has debased our money about 80% since they were created, it’ll onl be a little more time until it is completely worthless and we go under. The Gunny wonders, “who will bail US out?” Why do WE have to bail out a bunch of lazy ass lard asses in Greece, who continue to expect the failed experiment of Socialism to work when it has failed since the Virginia colonists tried it out back when Governor Bradford was taking notes on it? THIS is how LIBERALS think brothers and sisters, they reward FAILURE with MORE money, looted from the producers and redistributed to the idiots. Socialism offers higher wages, free healthcare, unions, and more and more benefits but at the hefty price of more government, more social decay, more taxes, more laws, and ever more regulations, all resulting in the end of personal independence, i.e., slavery to the State.
When our economy finally crashes and the dollar is useful only as asswipe, we can thank Progressives, right before we hang them from the nearest lamppost.
BTW, Lord Barry, the Kenyan Usurper, uses Air Force One to flit hither and yon on “official” business as well as fundraising. Trouble is, it costs US a buttload of TAX MONEY!
EXCERPT: “Air Force One – known in the military as VC-25 – costs $179,750 per flight hour alone in fiscal year 2012, Maj. Michelle Lai of the 89th Airlift Wing told ABC News. That figure includes fuel, flight consumables, depot level repairs, aircraft overhaul and engine overhaul. Pilot and airmen salaries are not included because they are paid regardless of the plane’s use, Lai said. Obama’s trip to Florida and back today will cost at least $674,000 in Air Force One flight time alone. His three-day, three-state swing that included two official events and eight fundraisers, netting more than $8 million last week, incurred flight costs of $2.1 million, based on the Air Force figure and flight times gathered from press pool reports.”
It would be cheaper FOR US if Obama simply stayed in the White House and used it to make illegal campaign fundraising commercials like he did last year. What makes this SO DISGUSTING is that our economy is in the toilet, energy costs are skyrocketing (to use Obama’s word), Obama has pissed away money on numerous vacations to RITZY resorts, not a working ranch, and his continuous golf trips are obnoxious, especially considering his work ethic SUCKS! Dumbo COULD show more restraint and frugalness in his travels and spending, considering that MILLIONS of Americans are out of work thanks to the Dems, the Obama debt is almost 16 TRILLION, and Medicare and Social Security are bankrupt and have been for years.
But then narcissistic tyrants like Obama, spoiled and spoon fed by granny and affirmative action, don’t think that way. OTHER PEOPLE sacrifice so that HE and Moochelle can live large.
