So this is an email I got today.....

Dear MoveOn member,

I'm Belinda cox, a MoveOn member in Oxford, MI, and I started a petition to The United States Senate, which says:

The president is used to a very lavish lifestyle. His spending is out of control. We need to put a cap on the spending.
Sign Belinda's petition
We would like to request a cap on presidential spending. Our current president is accustomed to a very lavish lifestyle. We the People feel his spending is out of control!

Three weeks into his presidency, he is having a re-election rally. At what expense? Is anyone overseeing who is paying for this? If the tax payers are paying for any part, we would like to see the budget.

His family (Wife, Children, and In-Laws) need extra security for multiple locations in and out of the USA Daily. At what expense? Who is paying this? How is it going to be paid? How many trips/days would taxpayers be paying? What is the budget, and what is the 4-year projection of cost?

The President has been on vacation three weekends in a row, being President for only JUST THREE weeks. At what expense? Who's hotels and businesses profit from these very expensive trips? Who is paying for these trips? How many Vacation Days a Year will the taxpayers be paying for? We would like to also see a budget.

I think it's time to put some CAPs on what looks to be a VERY dangerous spending agenda. We would like to see a Yearly and Four Year budget and how they plan to pay for these useless avoidable expenses.

We the people could use this money for so many other important life-saving things. For instance not gutting social security, Medicaid, Medicare, or taking food from the poor and education from the children.

Our nation is in debt already and this spending is just out of control!
Click here to add your name to this petition, and then pass it along to your friends.

Thanks!

YES, AND HE DOES THIS WITHOUT TAKING ONE RED CENT IN SALARY FROM US, HE REFUSED HIS PRESIDENTIAL SALARY OF $400 AND SOME THOUSAND DOLLARS A YEAR, NO OTHER PRESIDENT HAS, TO MY KNOWLEDGE DONE THIS. SORRY FOR THE ALL CAPS, BROKEN KEYBOARD.

The difference between the old president and the new one is that the new one actually has the education, skills, and experience save our nation far more than his fair share of the cost.

Here is a free copy of Sun Zu's Art of War. It is only a thousand lines or so, and I found nothing about Dripping Irony or MoveOn.org.

Your shallowness comes as no surprise; or is it a feeble attempt at a straw-man??

If you know your enemy and you know yourself you need not fear the results of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself you will succumb in every battle.

More Dripping Irony, as the Dems Accuse Themselves

Yes, the Demoncrap party really is that stupid, as are the mudstream media that continues to bolster them.

"The party that’s known for cheating to win elections is complaining about cheaters cheating the cheaters out of a win. Ever since President Trump won, the Democrats are putting it all out there for the whole world to see, including a party operative who was caught on camera by James O’Keefe saying they’ve been committing voter fraud for years, is concerned about their own party committing voter fraud against themselves."

No, it doesn't get any better than this. Pass the popcorn. :)
