Its Good to be King: America Headed Toward Fiscal Cliff and the Obama Royal Family is Off to Hawaii For 17 Day Vacation

Remember when President Barack Obama stated that every one had to have skin in the game? What he failed to explain was he meant everyone except himself.  How is it that someone who claims that everyone must sacrifice does not begin by setting the example himself? Amazing how Barack “Mr. 1%” Obama asks others to do what he will not himself.

Everyone must sacrifice… Everyone must have some skin in the game.”

But as America is on the verge of going over the fiscal cliff, King Obama and his Royal family are off to Hawaii for a 17 day Christmas vacation. How many Americans are taking a 17 day Christmas vacation? It’s good to be king, isn’t it. Many Americans are still out of work, a record number of Americans are still on food stamps and many are just giving up looking for employment. Now all Americans face the fiscal cliff and the increase of their taxes in 2012 thanks to Obamacare. However, this does not stop Barack Obama and his family from living La Vita Loca. Although Obama pays for the lodging, the American tax payers pick up the security costs where last year the trip cost more than $1 million.

While most Americans are lucky to get a few weeks of holiday every year, it seems the country’s leader gets a little more freedom in the matter.

President Barack Obama has announced his Christmas vacation to Hawaii – for a staggering 17-day trip.

Obama, who visited the island just two weeks ago for an economic summit, will head to Honolulu on Saturday December 17 until Monday January 2.

Amazing how the only thing that has stopped Barack Obama from vacationing and golfing was reelection. Not the economy, not record number of Americans om food stamps, not record number of American on disability, not  continued poor jib growth, not the specter of a fiscal cliff, not out of control federal spending, not the lack of a budget, not a Middle East on the brink and not the assassination of a US Ambassador and death of three other Americans in Benghazi, Libya.

UPDATE I: $4 million vacation courtesy of the Hawaii and federal taxpayers.

Residents living near the beachfront homes where President Barack Obama and First Family vacation with their friends every year since 2008 were alerted on Monday to some specifics of the Obamas’ holiday vacation plans.

The report delivered to residents living along the ocean and canal that surrounds the multi-million dollar homes at Kailuana Place where the President stays, informed them of restrictions that will be implemented for 20 days beginning December 17 and running through January 6.

With the staff, special forces, local police presence and equipment, the President’s visit adds up annually to at least a $4 million vacation courtesy of the Hawaii and federal taxpayers.

While the President and his friends pay for their own rental homes, taxpayers pick up the cost of security and waterfront housing for the Secret Service, Navy Seals and Coast Guard as well as staff accommodations at a plush beachfront Waikiki hotel.

That Was Fast … Barack Obama Buyers Remorse … Gallup Job Approval Rating Drops to 49%

The ink is barely dry on the ballots cast in the 2012 Presidential election and it appears that Americans are having buyers remorse with Barack Obama. The most recent Gallup poll has Obama’s job approval rating back underwater at 49%. If America has an issue with Obama now, wait until they find out all of his campaign rhetoric was mere lies and then there is Benghazi-gate.

Chester Duane Price Arrested for Murder of Missing Andrea Gail Parsons Who Went Missing in Florida on July 11, 1993

After almost 20 years there is a major break in the case of missing Andrea Gail Parsons … So much for no body, no crime!

42 year old Chester Duane Price has been arrested and charged with murder of Andrea Gail Parsons. Andrea Gail Parsons went missing and was last seen on July 11, 1993 in Port Salerno, FL. She was 10 years old at the time.  Andrea Gail Parsons was last seen at approximately 6 pm as she purchased candy and soda at a grocery store when she waved to a local couple as they drove by on an area street and honked. Chester Duane Price  was charged with first-degree murder and kidnapping of a child under the age of 13, after he was indicted by a grand jury. According to the sheriff’s department new release, the police investigation concluded that Chester Duane Price abducted and killed Andrea Gail Parsons. The girls body has not been recovered. Price is being held at the Martin County Jail without bond and is scheduled to make his first court appearance via video link at 10:30 am Friday in front of Judge Darren Steele .

Missing Andrea Gail Parsons

Price was acquainted with Andrea at the time of her disappearance, and also knew another man police once eyed as a potential suspect, officials told ABC News affiliate WPBF in West Palm Beach, Fla.

“The investigation has concluded that Price abducted and killed Andrea Gail Parsons,” read a sheriff’s department news release. “Tragically, at this time, her body has not been recovered.”

The sheriff’s department declined to specify what evidence led to Price’s arrest for the crime after 19 years or to provide details to beyond the prepared news release.

Price was most recently living in Haleyville, Ala., and has an extensive criminal history with arrests dating back to 1991, the sheriff’s office said. He voluntarily returned to the area to give testimony to a grand jury, sheriff’s spokeswoman Rhonda Irons said. He was arrested after the grand jury decided to indict him.

At a news conference Thursday, retiring Martin County Sheriff Robert Crowder said that a team of detectives was assigned last year to conduct a further review of evidence collected in the case.

“The resolve to find Andrea and get answers surrounding the circumstances of her disappearance has never wavered,” he said.

Blogger Adam Sharp Answers the #My2K Call: “Riddle Me This One, Barry … Why Should I Trust You?”

Obama and Taxes … Why should we trust The Lying King?

Blogger Adam Sharp speaks for many Americans when he responded to Barack Obama’s #My2K call.  Sharp’s response in his video below, “Riddle Me this Barry, Why should we trust you. The lie was that Obama promised that he would not raise taxes on people making over $250,000 a year. As we learned this past year when the US Supreme Court and Chief Justice Benedict Arnold John Roberts ruled that Obamacare was a tax. So why should we trust the Lying King Obama when he told Americans that Obamacare was not a tax, yet allowed his attorney to argue that it was?

Obama White House: Obama ‘Is Not Particularly Concerned’ Whether Susan Rice Misled the American People

Just a note to the American public, four Americans were murdered by terrorist as they pleaded for help and none came … The Obama Administration does not care.

Yesterday, White House Spokesman Jay Carney told reporters, in a response to a question from Major Garrett on whether the Obama administration’s mishandling of Benghazi raises “core questions of basic competency,”  that the Obama administration “is not particularly concerned” about misleading the public on the attack of the Benghazi consulate. Making matters worse, not only does Obama “not particularly concerned”, he is rubbing America’s nose in the ground by praising Ambassador Rice. claiming he could not have been prouder.  Obama called her “extraordinary”.

From The Weekly Standard. Just curious, how can one be concerned about what happened in Benghazi, if you purposely sent people out to mislead the American public as to what happened in Benghazi? Hmm?

“What the president is worried about, Major, is what happened and why in Benghazi. He is not particularly concerned about whether the ambassador or I went out and talked about the fact that we believed extremists might have been responsible. And whether we named them as al Qaeda or not does not–no, it certainly doesn’t have any bearing on what happened and who was responsible as that investigation was continuing on Benghazi.”

Rice extraordinary? What else would one expect from Obama, except doubling down. Benghazi-gate, a lie at hand and a scandal waiting to explode, only if the MSM actually decided to do their job. Republican Senators Kelly Ayotte, John McCain and Lindsey Graham all met with Ambassador Rice and left the meeting more troubled than before. But wait, it gets worse. Even uber-RINO Senator Susan Collins of Maine met with Rice and said, she remained deeply troubled that Ms. Rice did not seem to have a good answer for why the White House did not immediately classify the attack as an act of terrorism.

Face it America, Barack Obama does not care that four Americans died, does not want to get to the truth and will continue the cover up because it all points back to him and shows him to be incompetent and a non-leader. It was all about Obama’s reelection, not leadership.

Glenn Beck’s Masterpiece of Art … “Obama in Pee Pee” A Constitutional Right of Free Speech

Art is in the eye of the beholder … If the Constitution is good for one person, it should be equally interpreted for Glenn Beck.

Who knew that Glenn Beck was an artist? Well, if you consider the medium is bobble-head dolls and urine, he is your Picasso.  In what can only be described as if its good for the goose, Beck used his US Constitutional rights to create a work of art, Barack Obama in urine or as he named it, “Obama in Pee Pee”. Beck had recently supported artists rights to portray Obama in the image of Jesus Christ, even though it was offensive. The US Constitution protects the rights of others that might offend others and make their blood boil. But of course, the LEFT is all for art that would liken Obama to Jesus, but what will their reaction be to Obama in urine?  I cannot wait for the outrage from the LEFT.

“Art is in the eye of the beholder and this guy has a right to do this. I think its offensive. I don’t think its close to reality but whatever floats your boat. I support his right to do exactly that. I agree with him that people who are upset should not trump his right to be able to do it and be able to hang it wherever he wants – as long as its wanted there,” Glenn said.

And while some may find it surprising that Glenn would support the right for a person to paint a picture of Obama as Christ, he said it all goes to the Constitution – the one irrefutable piece of art which gives people the freedom.

As reported at The Daily Caller, it was really not pee, but beer instead inside the jar. That actually makes Glenn’s artwork and even greater masterpiece as it plays on the juxtapostion and irony of Obama having “beer summits” that are nothing more than photo-ops after he perpetually screws up and proclaims “learning” moments, namely his own.

Let’s see if the LEFT and the MSM have the same opinion of “free speech” when it comes to their Obamamessiah.

Welfare State on Steroids … Welcome to America Where it Does not Pay to Work

Welcome to Obama Land, a “welfare” state on steroids … For Every 1.25 People in Private Sector, 1 Person Gets a Government Check.

Remember an America where individuals believed in hard work and perseverance? Remember an America where individuals took pride in their work and believed in an honest days wage for an honest days work? Remember when we believed in getting ahead over entitlement? NOT ANY MORE. Welcome to an Obama world where many do not want to work a normal work week but expect to be paid for it. Welcome to the Obama progressive welfare state where the slackers succeed off those that work hard. America just elected a president who spent $5 trillion during his first term and looks to double down in this second one.  Who really gets hurt by this, the rich? Nope, the middle class. For those in the middle class who work for a living to put food on their families table and a roof over their head, have been sold down the river by federal and state governments that have created a welfare system on steroids. How bad has it become in the United States, it does not pay to work. This country is about to hit a tipping point and the point of no return. Who thinks that this was the vision of Our Founding Fathers?

The grim and disturbing news from Zero Hedge Fund:

[I]t is now more lucrative – in the form of actual disposable income – to sit, do nothing, and collect various welfare entitlements, than to work. This is graphically, and very painfully confirmed, in the below chart from Gary Alexander, Secretary of Public Welfare, Commonwealth of Pennsylvania (a state best known for its broke capital Harrisburg). As quantitied, and explained by Alexander, “the single mom is better off earning gross income of $29,000 with $57,327 in net income & benefits than to earn gross income of $69,000 with net income and benefits of $57,045.“

As aptly stated by Powerline, Those who work for a living have been sold out by federal and state governments that have created a welfare system gone mad.
