I want to thank my blogging sistah, UppityWoman, for posting about this article. I am shamelessly swiping it from her site.
How many of you have lost your jobs, your healthcare, your homes, your life savings, your freakin’ sanity? How many of you are now on food stamps or waiting in line at food banks? How many of you are sweating the fact that if your child has a cavity or breaks a bone, you are screwed? How many of you are eating one meal a day now so that your children can have more? How many of you are just hunkered down waiting for the wave to break over you?
How FREAKIN’ MANY?
…would ever just be completely grateful for the blessings bestowed upon them? Nope, did not think so either. These two dictator-wanna-bes are about to blow $376 MILLION DOLLARS OF YOUR MONEY ON A WHITE HOUSE UPGRADE!
Feel free to stop reading and run to the bathroom to puke – I did.
NEWSCORE – The White House welcomed construction crews early Saturday morning local time to launch a $376 million, four-year renovation project, the largest improvement plans on the executive mansion in more than 50 years, Bloomberg News reported.
“This is the biggest upgrade since the complete renovation of the executive mansion in the Truman era,” Bob Peck of the General Services Administration told Bloomberg News Friday.
Upgrades will include a new heating, cooling, electrical and fire-alarm systems for the East and West Wings.
The price tag is more than 100 times the total cost of building the White House in the 1790s, Bloomberg reported. Congress approved funding for the project in 2008.
This would definitely be another one of those times when I really can’t write what I am thinking. These two are disgusting, pathetic, and cannot be escorted from the Oval Office fast enough.
