Wisdom From My Grandfather

I have written about my grandfather before and how intelligent and learned a man can be without an indoctrination in government schools…he once told me this:

Son, Washington D.C. is the only place on Earth where a man can go with nothing but lint in his pocket, spend 6 years and produce nothing but hot air and walk away a millionaire…and if he doesn’t, he was too stupid to be there in the first place.

That wasn’t ghost written by Bill Ayers.

There is no better example of that statement than our Community Organizer in Chief,  Barack Hussein Obama.

Three things are apparent from President Obama’s annual financial disclosure statement, released today:

He is a wealthy man, with assets of as much as $10 million.

He has a hefty stake in JPMorgan Chase, the megabank that just made a bad $2 billion bet. Obama has an account worth between $500,000 and $1 million.

Despite the nation’s $15.6 trillion debt, he is a believer in government paper. More than half of his assets are in Treasury bills and notes.

The disclosure statement lists assets and liabilities in dollar ranges, so pinpointing the president’s net worth is difficult. His assets appear to tally between $2.6 million and $9.9 million. He holds a mortgage on his Chicago home of $500,000 to $1 million.

Brother B is a member of the 1%. Way to go, Homes. Fist bump. Ain’t America great (in spite of what you are trying to do to it)?

Maybe now you and Michelle can pay for your own damn vacations.

    • ? We are so enamored with the European model, we’ve SURPASSED the French. How does that give you hope we won’t be as foolish? It seems to me an indication we may be MORE foolish. After all, we see what is happening over there from debt and what are we doing in response?

      • We have not surpassed them! Otherwise, I’d be getting my somme. I will concede that we are more foolish, but it seems that people are more concerned about KK than the real world.
