Sure it is. It's just a legal one.

It's legal to offer it, take it, and bitch about it.

Mayor Bloomerberg Takes His Guns to Gun-free Bermuda

Do as Hizzoner says, Not as He Does

HAMILTON, Bermuda — At Greg’s Steakhouse, the power lunch spot on this sun-soaked island, Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg is such a regular that he has his own booth, with a view of the Parliament building. The waiters have memorized his order: coffee-rubbed New York strip steak.

The cabdrivers in Bermuda know Mr. Bloomberg by sight and jockey for a chance to drive him around town.(The billionaire mayor, they say, tips well.)

Members of the Mid Ocean golf club, where he plays up to two rounds a day, can rattle off the strengths and weaknesses of his game.

“He’s a bit slow, to be honest,” said one of them, who found himself stuck behind the mayor’s foursome recently.

Mr. Bloomberg, who owns a waterfront estate here, has walled off his life in Bermuda from voters in New York, arguing it is none of their business. He steadfastly refuses to say when he is on the island, and to blindfold prying eyes, he has blocked aviation Web sites from making public the movements of his private planes.

The mayor also takes along a police detail when he travels, flying two officers on his private plane and paying as much as $400 a night to put them up at a hotel near his house; the city pays their wages while they are there, as it does whether Mr. Bloomberg is New York or not. Guns are largely forbidden in Bermuda — even most police officers do not use them — but the mayor’s guards have special permission to carry weapons. A spokesman for the Police Department declined to comment.

As VP, Biden Has Been Flying To Delaware on the Weekends

by Keith Koffler on March 23, 2013, 11:38 am

Vice President Biden has been flying home to Wilmington, Delaware most weekends at enormous expense to taxpayers, even though he has an exclusive government-provided residence in Washington.

Biden himself acknowledged the flights during recent remarks to the National Association of Attorneys General, noting that the sequester would force him to temporarily alter his expensive habit and use the train instead.

According to reports, Biden generally uses Air Force Two to get to Wilmington.

The cost of flying Air Force Two, a military version of the Boeing 757-200, amounts to about $8,800 per hour, according to the most recent federal data.

The distance between Washington and Wilmington is only about a hundred miles, but it’s safe to assume that between flying time and the time spent on the takeoff and landing, the total flight takes at least 45 minutes. That would amount to a roundtrip cost to taxpayers of about $13,200.

This price still is conservative, though, because it doesn’t include the cost of transporting Biden to and from the plane, both in Washington and Delaware.

Biden, who rode Amtrak trains back and forth to Wilmington on weekends for years as a senator, said he was forced by the Secret Service to use air transport instead of the train when he became vice president. But it’s not at all clear why, given that he no longer represents Delaware, he must return there so frequently.

Biden has family in Delaware and reportedly also likes to golf at an exclusive club there. But in an era of soaring debt, he had been making a choice to spend thousands of taxpayers dollars to accomodate a personal predilection.

Millions of American work in cities that they don’t call home, but few can afford the expense of returning to their ancestral grounds regularly.

And none can rest their heads on pillows at the beautiful vice president’s mansion at the U.S. Naval Observatory in Washington.

Even liberals have a limit on how much they are willing to pay in taxes.

More of this will happen as Obamacare explodes the tax rates.

But does he also drink 64oz sodas while in Bermuda?

I used to watch his show, Politically Incorrect, all the time which was mainly satire with four guests from all backgrounds talking about the issues of the day - which in comparison to today's headlines seemed rather tame.

But then he went over the deep end and lost me too.

The DVR is courtesy of DirecTV - it's a perk of my son's job, and we aren't charged for it.

But they've never tried to commandeer his vote, and he doesn't belong to a union...so that's ok.

Right?

Sheesh.

Well, I feel like I've been in a middle eastern history class this evening with all the research and reading.

Basically, my brain is pooped. But I learned a lot too.

Then they shouldn't be touting the programs which explode them, or deriding others for not wanting to pay them.

And hey: the fines are cheaper than supporting the program...so the ones who aren't offering insurance anymore are just doing
'good bidness' and saving that money...at least in the short term.
