Presidential Pettiness Is Not On Vacation

Thursday, August 1st, 2013

“President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama are committed to opening the doors of the White House and truly making it the People’s House.”

“Due to staffing reductions resulting from sequestration, we regret to inform you that White House Tours will be canceled effective Saturday, March 9, 2013 until further notice.”

I never thought there could be a worse President than George W. Bush – WAS I WRONG! Tens of thousands of families used to visit the White House every year as part of small, affordable vacations.  But President Obama said those tours would have to be cut because of his little hissy fits about sequestration with Congress.  The tours cost US taxpayers $74,000 per week – less than 1 tail-fin on 1 drone he uses to lose the war in Afghanistan.

Well, that’s alright America.  Instead of free White House tours, maybe you and your families could take luxurious vacations in Africa, Europe, Hawaii, or Martha’s Vineyard.  Oh, wait …

The Lamest Police ID Photo Ever

Thursday, August 1st, 2013

Have you seen this black or white male or female?

A person robbed a convenience store in Geneva, NY last week at 3:00 in the morning.  Police released these surveillance photos of the perpetrator and asked the public if it recognized the person.  To narrow the search even further, they added black clothes were worn by the 5’7″-5’10” gun-toting robber along with a black backpack.  If you make a positive ID, please call Geneva Police at (315) 789-1111. No reward was mentioned.

I have a question.  Why aren’t surveillance cameras placed behind the clerks on eye-level shelves aimed at potential thieves faces?  I don’t know if I could even recognize myself from images like these.
