Michelle Obama Thanks American Taxpayers!

July 9, 2011

Dear American Taxpayer

For only the second time in my adult life, I am not ashamed of my country. I want to thank the hard working American people for paying $242 thousand dollars for my vacation in Spain .

My daughter Sasha, several long-time family friends, my personal staff and various guests had a wonderful time. Honestly, you just haven’t lived until you have stayed in a $2,500.00 per night private 3-story villa at a 5-Star luxury hotel.

Thank you also for the use of Air Force Two and the 70 Secret Service personnel who tagged along to be sure we were safe and cared for at all times.

By the way, if you happen to be visiting the Costa del Sol, I highly recommend the Buenaventura Plaza restaurant in Marbella ; great lobster with rice and oysters! I’m ashamed to admit the lobsters we ate in Martha’s Vineyard were not quite as tasty, but what can you do if you’re not in Europe , you have to just grin and bear it?

Air Force Two (which costs $11,351 per hour to operate according to Government Accounting Office reports) only used 47,500 gallons of jet fuel for this trip and carbon emissions were a mere 1,031 tons of CO2. These are only rough estimates, but they are close. That’s quite a carbon footprint as my good friend Al Gore would say, so we must ask the American citizens to drive smaller, more fuel efficient cars and drive less too, so we can lessen our combined carbon footprint.

I know times are hard and millions of you are struggling to put food on the table and trying to make ends meet. So I do appreciate your sacrifices and do hope you find work soon.

I was really exhausted after Barack took our family on a luxury vacation in Maine. I just had to get away again for a few days.

Cordially,

Michelle (Moochelle) Obama

P.S. Oh yeas, thank you as well for the $2 BILLION dollar trip to India, during which we rented the entire Taj Mahal Hotel!

P.SS. Thank you, too, for that vacation trip to Martha’s Vineyard; it was fabulous. And thanks for that second smaller jet that took our dog Bo to Martha’s Vineyard so we and the children could have him with us while we were away from the White House for eleven days. After all, we couldn’t take him on Air Force One because he might pee on some wires or something.

P.SSS. Oh, I almost forgot to say thanks also for our two-week trip to Hawaii at Christmas. That 7,000 square foot house was great!

Love ya!

Remember we all have to share the pain of these economic times equally! Love to -redistribute- share- the wealth. 

 


More Robin Hood Communism from Our Tax-Raiser-in-Chief, Obama…

If we’re fighting to reform the tax code and increase exports, the benefits cannot just translate into greater profits and bonuses for those at the top. They have to be shared by American workers, who need to know that opening markets will lift their standard of living as well as your bottom line.”  — President Obama to U.S. Chamber of Commerce

 

Spencer’s comments:

 

If the “workers of the world” want to “share” in corporate profits (over and above their pay grade), let them take the financial risks of starting their own corporations, developing their own successful business model, implementing their own creativity and business genius, working their asses off like most corporate officers do, and reaping the rewards if they succeed, or suffering the failure if they don’t.

 

Or let them go to the owner of an existing corporation with a great business idea, and form a partnership, putting up their own risk capital, sweat equity, planning, hard work and business acumen in the process, and once again either reaping the rewards if the partnership succeeds, or suffering the failure if it doesn’t.

 

But nope, these “workers of the world” don’t want to do that. After all, they don’t have ANYTHING of any value to offer in the first place, or they’d already be doing it. No ideas. No business acumen. No willingness to struggle for months or even years to build a successful business.

 

Instead, they’re perpetual 9 to 5’ers who, unsatisfied with their place in life (which is the result of their own actions and decisions) want to suck off the rewards of someone else’s hard work, financial risk, business acumen, intelligence and perseverance — all under the guise of government-mandated “fairness.”

 

They’re like leaches who think by virtue of their very existence they “deserve” to be given a share of someone else’s investment, creativity, business acumen, and results.

 

And of course they want government to FORCE their boss to “share” the wealth — which simply dissipates the company revenue so that it can’t be used to hire additional workers, invest in company infrastructure, purchase new equipment, upgrade to new technology, open new departments, expand into other cities or states, etc.

 

And of course, once implemented, this “sharing” of the wealth with the “workers of the world” never ends. Progressive politicians in droves will campaign for office by promising to “increase the share” that the “workers of the world” will get from their bosses.

 

This mindset — and God forbid it ever gets implemented in this country — literally guarantees the immediate mediocrity and eventual failure of every company, because business owners are forced by government to “share” company revenue with people over and above the value of their actual contribution to the company.

 

The lifeblood of every company will be destroyed. No one will even want to start a new company, knowing that that only thing that will grow will be the “share” of company revenues mandated by the progressive government to Obama’s wonderful “workers of the world.”
