Crazy Uncle Joe - Part II

Updated on March 24, 2013

Sequester Schmester Alrighty Now!

I wrote about our Crazy Uncle Joe wasting away a cool $1 million for two nights lodging in Paris and London and that seemed to have caught a few people's outrage and more people should be outraged and writing their elected representatives. They have stopped The People's House tours and are now talking about now closing airport control towers to the detriment of the public's safety. You need to now acknowledge that this administration doesn't care about anything but its own twisted agenda - the public be damned. As Moochelle would say, "Let them eat sugar free cake."

You can read Part i at the link below but I have previously written about our Crazy Uncle's shenanigans before. The dust is beginning to settle on the waste of our $1 million and ups pops another nugget in the middle of sequestration. If you haven't the slightest clue yet may I suggest that you wake up. These idiots that we keep sending to Washington DC have no intention of cutting spending. You cut yours but let them continue to live the elitist life style they have carved out for themselves.

So what has our Crazy Uncle Joe done now in the name of being entitled at our expense? Please read on.

Crazy Uncle Joe is the true embodiment of the type of entitled, elitist Democratic politician on the political landscape we are now surveying. He just happens to be a leader of the Democratic political apparatus but this is pretty prevalent, this attitude, that has permeated Washington DC. In his case please understand that we provide our Crazy Uncle with a pretty opulent lifestyle in Blair House that is one of his perks. Hang on. I'm going somewhere with this.

By Biden's own admission he has been flying home to Delaware on the weekends. The problem isn't that he is home sick. The problem is that we, the US tax payer, has been paying for this excess too. Something wrong with Blair House Joey? How do we now know this? Joey does have a big mouth you know. He bragged about it in front a gathering of the National Association of Attorney's General. He complained that the sequestration is forcing him to alter, temporarily I might add, excessive spending habit and take a train! EGAD - not the train!!!

Now you need to understand the sheer audacity of these elitist pick pockets we call professional politicians or maybe you don't come to think of it. They keep being sent back over and over again to continue to damage our nation and its economy. Wilmington, Delaware is but about 100 miles from the nation's Capitol. Biden has been using Air Force Two to get there and back. Air Force Two is a modified version of a Boeing 757-200 aircraft so lets do some quick math here with tax payer money.

Sorry Joey! Fresh Out Of Ink!

So we're dealing with 100 miles and a Boeing 757. Factoring in both flight time and taking off and landing we're somewhere around 45 minutes of Joey's time. His time is more valuable than yours you see. You are just supposed to shut up and pay the bill for this clown show. Industry experts estimate the cost of flying Air Force Two at approximately $,8,800 dollars. That's $8,800 per hours ladies and gentlemen. Plugging in the time involved and the flight costs each time he has done this round trip it has cost the US tax payer at least $13,200.

The reason I said "at least" is because the cost of ground transport on both ends isn't factored into it yet. Now Crazy Uncle Joey's rationale about Air Force Two is because he is now the VP. He has to have his Secret Service entourage with him. He rode the train for years as a Senator. what he didn't explain in that same breath was why that he now isn't a Delaware Senator why he has to return there every weekend that he can. No one should ever expect any logic to come out of Biden's mouth I can tell you.

These Digs Not Good Enough For Our Uncle On The Weekends Huh?

It is reported that Uncle Joe has a golf addiction akin to Daddy Barack's. I personally don't care about Crazy Joey's addictions unless the tax payer is paying for them. We are. Here we are printing money to keep our heads above water as a nation and piling debt on top of our children and their children and we see this sort of elitist garbage going on and someone, in this case the Vice President of the country, trying to justify this sort of excessive spending.

QUOTE OF THE DAY FROM PART I BY AN ASTUTE COMMENTER: "So let me get this straight ..... we take away tuition assistance from our military members because we can't afford it, but we can pay for a million dollar weekend for the VEEP, find out how fat lesbians are and research the size of duck genitals. ..... does Washington even have a clue of what priorities are? Wow!"

Yes chuckd1738 you have that straight and now we can now heap another helping onto your plate.

"Vote It," "Like"It, "Tweet" It, "Pin " It, "Share It" With Your Followers. Time to let em read it and keep reading it.

As Always,

      OP - Of course they're lying when they say they're working while on vacation. I guess at least when they're on vacation, they're not working, which I admit does make me feel safer. Maybe the money is well spent. :)

      The craziest part in all this is the left? Where is the outrage? I rememeber Bush playing golf just a few times and OMG! It was horrible! Now Obama spends over a million playing with Tiger and what do we get ?...........silence. I would have more respect for the left if they actually stood for something. The left has ZERO backbone or convictions concerning ANY of the subjects they tout! .......and yet the beat us in elections,...........what is this world coming too????

      Let's see; one of Uncle Joe's 18th century elitist predecessors Marie Antoinette is famous for her "let em eat cake" proclamation; guess Uncle Joe will be remembered for his Alfred E. Newman Mad Magazine Expression; Sequester. WHAT ME WORRY!

      Maybe Joe needs to keep touching base with Delaware to encourage the state's pick-pocketing of every corporation registered there. What used to be a "great state to incorporate" has figured out a way to tax companies on their "excess inventory" (which isn't really excess but rather the overage suppliers send to companies to make up for defective products)...and they're doing this retroactively, too, going back for the last (get this) 35 years.

      Birds of a funky feather, Joe B. & the state of Delaware.

      As far as spending and closing White House tours go, they have the media on their side. All they have to do is say its all because of Republicans and most Americans buy it.

      Another great one Frog. Voted up and sharing.

      Stu brings up an interesting point. Where is it written or guaranteed that the President or VP get all expense paid lavish vacations? Time off with pay is normal, but all expenses paid is over the top.

      The response of course will be that they are still working even though they are on vacation. Thus they need to take all of their support people down to the shoe shine guy with them when they vacation. I can see paying for their protection, but the rest should be out of their own pockets.

      It strikes me that in many business instances this would be deemed anything from abuse, to embezzlement to misappropriation of funds. When it's Barry or Joe, it's called due course. They aren't alone. In our better days politicians were public servants. These days the public serves to provide their living large.

      Insane. I can understand letting these people at the top have paid vacation time, and have the taxpayer pay for security, but why do we have to pay for their travel, food, hotel, and entertainment expenses when they go on vacation? Aren't those PERSONAL expenses?

      Mike - I look at it as legalized theft myself. Laws written by professional pick pockets who exclude themselves along the way.

      I guess this should surprise me, but it doesn't. If these facts get out on the media, I can't believe anyone would not be outraged. But, we all know that to some, these expenditures are more than warranted because Joe is Royalty. Wake up America, this is your hard earned money that is being wasted, or stolen, depending on how you look at it.
