Obama's Billion Dollar Trip To Kenya

It has been reported that Socialist President Pinocchio Obama's recent trip to Kenya cost the American taxpayer about $1 Billion because there were huge security requirements.  Things are so bad in Kenya that Obama could not even visit the village where his family came from, or lives today because of Terrorists threats.   In fact, it is no wonder that Obama's relatives have not been kidnapped, or held hostage given the connection to the President.  They had to come into Nairobi to meet with the President. 

I suspect that we could have flown Obama's relatives and anybody else he wanted to meet with to Washington DC First Class for a whole lot less money than a Billion dollars.  They all could have stayed at the best hotel in Washington and ordered room service for every meal for a whole lot less than a Billion dollars.  Just think how many school rooms could have been built for a Billion dollars and or bridges repaired that the President is always talking about.  I know, I know, a Billion dollars is chump change in Washington DC; but it is not chump change to the rest of us chumps that are paying for it through higher taxes. 

This Blogger is disgusted by this waste of taxpayer money; though I know it is just the tip of a corrupt ice berg.  Until all the waste, fraud, abuse, corruption, redundancy and government failures are eliminated and some of the crooks in government go to jail, this Blogger is opposed to any tax increase.  Matter of fact, I want to see spending and tax cuts to starve the beast.   I am sick and tired of paying for all this waste. 

Let's start with defunding Planned Parenthood, the nation's largest provider of abortions, now that we know they are trafficking in baby parts.  That would save more than $500 million a year.  Next, let's get rid of the Department of Education to save Billions more.   The federal Department of Education is completely redundant and unnecessary, since every state has State and County Departments of Education and local School Boards.  How many layer of education bureaucracy do we need to produce the poor student achievement we see in many school districts.   Wouldn't it better if this money actually got to the classroom to pay great teachers more money.  I think so.
