Whose White House is it???

I can remember a time when you could actually tour the White House.  Hell, I took s, the tour in 1994.  I didn’t need a group of 13, 10, or some other absurd number.  I just requested a tour and gave some personal information-then magically I would show up at the White House and a tour guide would show a group of us around. 

First of all…isn’t the White House the peoples house?  As in you and me…and every other citizen out there?  Second of all…don’t our taxes maintain it?  Now I know the President and his family get to live there, great, but it’s still supposed to be our house! 

This is something I ranted about continually throughout the President Bush (43’s) term-well one of the many things.  And now the guy I voted for isn’t turning out to be any better about this.  What a disappointment.  I got up this morning and my husband was reading me some funny quotes from the White House Correspondent’s Dinner.  And President Obama had some good ones, so I got online to see what else I could find.  Instead I read some crap about LA in DC.  PUKE!  Take a look at what set me off!

So, do I vomit now or later.  It seems every day I read so and so is at the White House.  Tiki Barber, the Chicago Bulls, Toby Keith, Usher-who came to talk about malaria (REALLY WHAT THE FUCK DOES USHER KNOW ABOUT MALARIA???    http://www.usnews.com/blogs/washington-whispers/2009/04/25/usher-teams-up-with-the-obamas.html, and Tiger Woods.  Ugh.  Double Ugh.  Then comes the White House’s Correspondent’s Dinner.  I mean really, what the fuck does Natalie Portman have to do with any of that?  Or Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes.  Or even better Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher.  Ludacris???  I mean really.

Am I the only person toally disgusted that if you are an actor (not even a good one as demonstrated by the Moore and Kutcher entry), a ball player, or a rapper you can get into the White House?!  But if you are a just a tax payer and a good citizen (like me-ha-no I do pay my taxes, although I’m started to question why) you can’t get in unless you ask your Congressman a recommended 6 months in advance and you have a group of 10!  http://www.whitehouse.gov/about/tours_and_events/

Anyone else see a problem with this?!?

Complete Crazy Unleashed…

Apparently there are a number of groups who are challenging whether President Elect Obama is a natural US citizen.  Huh?  Yeah, exactly.  This seems to be pretty ridiculous to me.  However, they are getting some media traction, as the Politico ran the article I’ve pasted below today. 

There are two lawsuits challenging Obama’s legitimacy of citizenship. 

     1.  One such lawsuit alleges that because his father was Kenyan and under British rule, he’d have been born with dual citizenship. 

     2.  The other contends that he wasn’t born on American soil at all.  Philip J. Berg has filed suit claiming Barack Obama was really born in Kenya, not Hawaii.  He also claims his Hawaiian birth certificate looks fake.  So being the super slueth that I am, I pulled out my daughter’s birth certificate.  See, she was born in Hawaii.  Looks the same to me…so I’m not sure what Mr. Berg is trying to pull.  Now the birth certificate definitely looks different from mine, I was born in Iowa…but again I want to stress it looks exactly like my daughters.  So I’m a little unclear as to what is fake about it!  However Justice Clarence Thomas has passed this already reject suit around the court, so we’ll see if this goes any further.  You really gotta hand it to Clarence Thomas. 

Well this should be a good time for all I’m sure.  I would also like to point out one of the crazies promoting this is a former Swift Boater…and boy we know how honest they were now don’t we?!
