Because I'm Entitled

I did it because I'm entitled to burn a jet-load full of fuel, even though:

  • I plan to cap industry's production of carbon emissions regardless of whether it destroys our global competitiveness
  • My carbon emission caps will cost consumers thousands of dollars per family in higher energy costs
  • I have made independence from foreign oil our nation's top priority
  • I took over the auto industry and will force you to buy itsy-bitsy cars
  • I hated it when auto executives took private planes to Washington, those pigs
  • We all need to cut back in these hard times

You see, I'm just like that. And there's nothing you can do about it.

Correction: I'm sorry. I made a mistake. I actually burned three jet-loads of fuel. I forgot about the two planes full of commoners with things in their ears who talk into their sleeves, who follow me everywhere I go.

  1. Excellent post, but I would add as another bullet:

    I have my own personal movie theatre in the White House, and abundant cultural opportunities in DC, including the Washington Center for the Performing Arts, not to mention the presidential retreat of Camp David, where I could have pretended to continue my 24-hour a day job of leading and protecting the American people

  2. How did _you_ spend Saturday evening?

  3. But did he have Dijon mustard on his sandwich?

    Dubya spent a third of his "presidency" on vacation, but your little heads explode if Obama goes out with his wife for part of the weekend. At least we know that this President will be back on the job, in the Oval Office, on Monday.

  4. OOPS! I meant the Kennedy Center, not our lowly arts center here in quaint little Olympia WA.

  5. Don't they have fighter jets protecting AF 1?

    jasperjave likes the work BO is doing? He is giving away the farm! I hope we can continue to be a country that we love and respect, and that it is your right to make a profit, and not give it away to those who don't do their part.

  6. ...full of commoners...

    "....just like all you OTHER commoners/taxpayers out there.

    I won. You lost."

  7. American capitalism gone with a whimper

    It must be said, that like the breaking of a great dam, the American decent into Marxism is happening with breath taking speed, against the back drop of a passive, hapless sheeple, excuse me dear reader, I meant people.

    Those lessons were taken and used to properly prepare the American populace for the surrender of their freedoms and souls, to the whims of their elites and betters.

    First, the population was dumbed down through a politicized and substandard education system based on pop culture, rather then the classics. Americans know more about their favorite TV dramas then the drama in DC that directly affects their lives. They care more for their "right" to choke down a McDonalds burger or a BurgerKing burger than for their constitutional rights. Then they turn around and lecture us about our rights and about our "democracy". Pride blind the foolish.

    Then their faith in God was destroyed, until their churches, all tens of thousands of different "branches and denominations" were for the most part little more then Sunday circuses and their televangelists and top protestant mega preachers were more then happy to sell out their souls and flocks to be on the "winning" side of one pseudo Marxist politician or another. Their flocks may complain, but when explained that they would be on the "winning" side, their flocks were ever so quick to reject Christ in hopes for earthly power. Even our Holy Orthodox churches are scandalously liberalized in America.

    The final collapse has come with the election of Barack Obama. His speed in the past three months has been truly impressive. His spending and money printing has been a record setting, not just in America's short history but in the world. If this keeps up for more then another year, and there is no sign that it will not, America at best will resemble the Wiemar Republic and at worst Zimbabwe.

    These past two weeks have been the most breath taking of all. First came the announcement of a planned redesign of the American Byzantine tax system, by the very thieves who used it to bankroll their thefts, loses and swindles of hundreds of billions of dollars. These make our Russian oligarchs look little more then ordinary street thugs, in comparison. Yes, the Americans have beat our own thieves in the shear volumes. Should we congratulate them?
