I guess the question I should have asked was, for how many trips made up the $101,000.00. I am always against Government waste. But, I do know a law was passed that the Speaker of the House was to have a military plane to travel in after 9/11. Dennis Hastert used the military plane practically every weekend which was his right. Seeing you know so much about flight costs by politicians, how much did it cost the taxpayer when GWB flew out to the ship that was only 30 miles from shore? I will wait for your answer to see if you really are against excessive spending.
By watching and listening to the attached news report from CNN should answer your weak questions.
What a truly horrable person. And, three heartbeats from being President of the US. How did this happen? And how does she stay in office?
The article I am refering to was in todays Dallas Morning News, Business section, front page. Check it out.........
You are correct, by law she is provided transportation back and forth to Calf.. However, read the article for the flavor and amount of abuse.....
I don't know what the hell you 'checked out', but you sure didn't check much. This took me less than 1 minute to find on a very slow internet conection. I just don't know about you people. If it doesn't agree with the your preconcieved notions it is always a lie! I'd say in this case that you are the one with no credibility whatsoever. Grow up, brat!
rd: Okay let's bury the hatchet on the work background thingy. That's really not the issue. I believe you worked hard over your life and should be congratulated for that. Most handout lib types can't say the same. ("Where's my check!!")
The real issue is did you vote for the doofus currently in office? I hope not, because everyone who pulled the lever for The Messiah should feel accountable and a whole lot disappointed right now.
But take some heart in knowing that even though liberalism is a disease, it's not incurable. Come join us on the other side, you'll feel much better for it.
Snopes not unbieased? You believe everything the right wing nuts post. Snopes is a lot more credible than the right wing crap you portry to be the truth. Why don't you get a life you lazy effette snob.
With your background, I am quite surprised that you have the present attitude and politics. Plainly, you are on the wrong side of the fence here.
I too grew up on a farm in the Midwest, spent 4.5 years in the US Navy in the early to mid 60’s, 3.5 years in the Submarine Service aboard the USS Cusk – (SS-348) home ported out of Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, used the GI Bill and had my own electrical contracting business to finance my college education, was a professor at the college while working on my M.S. degree, worked for Chevron for 30 years as a union employee, supervisor, department head and operations manager on mostly domestic projects with some international exposure toward the end of my working career. And, during the process, moved my family more times than a man should and way more than I wanted to. overall, it was a great ride and well worth my and my families efforts and sacrificies.
Now, to the issues at hand… How can you represent the present Congressional majority? Most of those people would not know how to pour piss out of a work boot if the instructions were on the heel. Take another hard look at the backgrounds of those that represent the present majority. The farmers that I grew up with did not need someone to tell them what was right or wrong. Nor did they need the US government to keep them profitable.
I did reply to your e-mail verifying my education, and a detail about my work experiences. Maybe the post was to long and did make make the trip. Sorry about that. I grew up on a farm where we learned to work at a young age. In fact, I milked my first cow by hand when I was eight years old. One poster to this site stated he works 50 hours a week. I sometimes had 30 hours worked from Friday night to Monday morning when I went to work. I know farmers that work 48 hours in two days when it is planting season. Yes, you read that right, they didn't quit planting for two days. So don't give my that crap about how hard some of you work.
GolfI am amazed how little you understand about those of us that worked very hard during our lifetime of employment. I spent 31 years teaching students what capitalism is all about and how to be good productive workers and businessmen. Furthermore, I worked in a large factory making parts for submarine engines,and locomotive engines. I guess you think that farmers don't add to the capitalistic system. I can guarantee that a lot of our dairymen work many more hours a day than you ever did. All of us that were Agricultural Education teachers were part of training future Agriculturists to be productive and efficient. Without the hard work our farmers put in, we would be short of food like so many other countries. We contribute more to the economy than just about any other sector. So, I guess you have little knowlege of the agricultural sector. Incidently they are a major user of petroleum products. Maybe you should develop a better attitude about other peoples occupation.
Plus, I spent 7 years teaching in a college training Agribusinessmen and Adult farmers.
