Tanks, Rifles, Bullets – But No Easter

Obama has plenty of money for 2,700 tanks, 7,000 automatic rifles and 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition, but no money for an Easter egg hunt.

Obama’s budget is 30%  ($1 trillion) larger than the biggest budget prior to his Presidency, but he has no money for White House tours.

For more than a century, the White House Easter Egg Roll has been insulated from the sort of partisan sniping that now dominates Washington politics.

That tradition ended Monday, when Republicans started complaining about a notice that the event could be canceled due to a potential government shutdown. The Obama administration has already come under GOP criticism for canceling White House tours due to the mandatory, across-the-board cuts known as sequestration.

Could a government shutdown doom the White House Easter Egg Roll?

    Not to mention F-16s and millions in “aid” to Egypt, where they surely love all things Easter.

    Two people were killed when a private jet crashed into a residential neighborhood in northern Indiana. I say ban all jet aircraft, especially F-16s to Egypt.

    Actually, I am very much Catholic, but could not give a rat’s ass if the White House doesn’t have the freggin Egg Roll. Its all about the f*cking bunny and “Easter Eggs.” Stupid bloody commercialization of a true holy day. Like Christmas and f*cking Santa Claus or the bloody Tree. My family even celebrates using those things, but I can’t stand them. Its all good being happy and joyful on those days… thats the way it is supposed to be… but to commercialize them for profit, makes me very mad. Long story short, cut the Egg Roll and instead go to church.

    Obama also has plenty of money to repurpose the shuttered Willow Grove Naval Air Station as a drone base from which to watch (or shoot) all of us evil Americans.

    The Easter Egg Roll was a fun event with a long tradition. One past year, before AGW created by heteronormative, pro-capitalist white males destroyed our climate, it was done in the snow.

  9. They’ve GOT to have the Easter Egg Roll – Michelle Obama invited the family of a slain child (Hadiya Pendleton) to the hunt.

    No married man wants to get his wife upset…

  10. David says:

    “The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the US Government can not pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies. Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that ‘the buck stops here.’ Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.”
    ~Senator Barack H. Obama, March 2006

    August, 2009
    ”the last thing you want to do is raise taxes in the middle of a recession because that would just suck up – take more demand out of the economy and put business further in a hole.”
    Barack H. Obama
