Waygu Steaks for Everyone!...Except you...

To celebrate the biggest pork barrel bill ever crafted in the history of spending, even taking into account adjustments due to inflation, of course our new President would want to show that he and his family and party understand that we all have to make sacrifices. We all have to have skin in the game.

"Thus the First family feasted on Wagyu beef."

For those unfamiliar with this beefy delicacy, Wagyu beef is a Japanese creation wherein cows are fed bottled beer and massaged daily to ensure when they're slaughtered, the meat is marbled, tender and worth 100$ or more per pound.

It just seems a bit...argula type excessive. But, maybe I'm wrong, maybe he ordered the ground chuck Wagyu or the round roast cut.

Settling into his new home in DC, Obama, who hates the cold, had cranked up the thermostat in the White House. "He's from Hawaii, OK?" said his senior adviser, David Axelrod, who occupies the small but strategically located office next door to his boss. "He likes it warm. You could grow orchids in there."

And when there's work to be done outside of their address on Pennsylvania Avenue, he hops into his friendly...nope, try"Beast" of a Cadillac that consumes more petrol than a small bus. It's all legitimate. It's for the protection of the President and that's appropriate.

After all, in these days, "We can't drive our SUV's and eat as much as we want and heat our homes to 72 degrees."

Oh...he meant WE can't.

When you look at what he actually said, it makes sense. He said, "we can't keep our houses at 72, blah, blah, blah and expect other countries to be okay with it." paraphrasing it btw. He didn't say we shouldn't do these things or that he will stop or even ask us to stop. He merely said WHEN we do it others won't like it. The answer to that comes via cheney (but for a different question), "SO WHAT." See, Obama really doesn't want us to stop using energy. He just wants to tax us out of the wazoo for doing it--keep on smoking, driving, drinking, and pay up!

Leaving a comment is a form of free tipping. But this lets me purchase diet coke and chocolate.
