Kerry to hold press conference on Syria!! I guess the reason for the conference is to address the issue that the Syrian government has failed to submit an inventory of its toxic stockpiles and facilities to international inspectors by this weekend's deadline!! So I guess the Ball is back in Obama’s court, just have to Wait and See!!

I hate to break this revelation to you chimpy Dave, but the chances of a leftist loser that supports odumbocare being able to afford either a Fisker or Tesla are slim to none. Base price for both is around $100k.

Unless one is independently wealthy, it is very difficult to maintain a home in Washington and a second home in one's home district. That's why many Congressmen sleep in their offices.
$172K doesn't go far in Washington...
Which is a good reason for Congress to limit their sessions to two months per year and pay documented travel expenses during that period.
if they only worked 60 days a year they would not be able to pay themselves $172K a year...

"Pentagon says not worried about F-35 costs/orders 'death spiral'
Reuters
Andrea Shalal-Esa September 17, 2013 7:30 PM
By Andrea Shalal-Esa
NATIONAL HARBOR, Maryland (Reuters)- The Air Force general who runs the Pentagon's $392 billion F-35 program on Tuesday said he was fairly optimistic the new Lockheed Martin Corp fighter jet would survive the next round of U.S. budget cuts, but said he was determined to continue lowering its cost.
Air Force Lieutenant General Chris Bogdan told the annual Air Force Association conference the F-35 program was making slow but steady progress, and that he saw strong continued support from the U.S. military services and foreign partners.
Given that support, he said he no longer worried that the F-35 program would be afflicted by a so-called "death spiral" in which cuts in orders trigger rising prices that lead to further cuts in orders and ultimately undermine the program...."
"poop"
Quit changing the subject. I made no comments regarding the waste in most governments agency's and their projects. I simply said te government bailout of, Government Motors, cost the American taxpayers 10 billion dollars. In as much as you pay not pay any federal income taxes it affects you not at all.

If they had a real job for the other 10 months, they might be more connected to reality.

The founders always envisioned citizen legislators instead of a professional political class.

In a cash business, without the burden of Medicare and insurance paperwork, the total cost of an office visit would be no more (and perhaps less) than the $45 copay for the ObamaKKKare exchanges.

Cell phone operators have a huge lobby force an the Democrats who "pretend" they are anti-Money protect them.
Even the poor people in the USA get cell phones they can't pay for.
Obama takes care of it. You can get a cell phone for $3 -$5 a month, but Obama makes sure it costs the government $30 a month.
A good site for cell on the cheap is cellguru.net or just google mvno cell phones.
Prepaid is the way to go if you don't blab for a 1000 minutes a month.
Obamaphones are smart phones the Democ-RATS play games on because they are too lazy to look for jobs.
Really? Interesting info to know. Especially since I am not at all familiar with the parasite tacTics (legit, and ethically in need types excluded of course) of "how to use and abuse the system, and OTHER peoples hard earned dollars", having worked and pulled my share, with out being dependent on givverment programs, all my life.
