Growing up, my parent spent $20k to $40k on one to two week vacations we took every year; they were just upper middle class ($400k a year household). I can see $4 million on 20 days for the upper class. Anyway. He doesn't need to be around to prevent the fiscal cliff, he doesn't make the laws, he signs them. If congress passes something, he said he will sign it. Even if he isn't there, the auto pen is. Wait for congress to act, and then for him not to, to be upset. Until then, you are just blowing smoke. [/quote] Spoken like a true spoiled Lib apologist. [/quote] Sorry, I'm a conservative ( as are most sucessful black men, registered republican, voted for Gary Johnson). As are my parents (maybe my mom not so much). My mom owned a medical company, my stepdad was an electrical engineer. They probably payed more in taxes than you ever have. They also probably put more kids through college than you ever will (four of us, at least three kids who were friends of the family). I went to school, got a degree, work in R&D, bought a house, got married. Point to me where we are spolied. [/quote] And yet you call yourself "A Pimp"... Some people are not helped by years of education. Were you hired through 'Affirmative Action" by any chance? Hmm... Glad the employees of the medical company were well paid. They were, weren't they? They weren't part-time workers without benefits, I suppose. Did you ever learn that before and during the Civil War, blacks owned slaves? Black entrepeneurs know how to make money, all right. Congratulations for throwing your vote away. Stopping Obama with Gary Johnson was not going to happen, but you were just "blowing smoke", not really participating in the most important election of your lifetime. Thanks for your comments. :rant: [/quote] The name is from a cartoon, The Boondaocks, just something silly. The employees were payed well, phlebotomist, with highschool educations and a bit more training, made between $15 and $40 per patient (based on distance from headquaters, home care). It wasn't uncommon for some of them to make $60k a year, they were 1099 workers. The people that worked in the labs were salary with benifits, and paid according to education. Yup, I know black people owned slaves. However, my ancestors were slaves, owned by white people. You know what is funny, their owner left all his land to my great great grandfather and his brother (I think that is the right amount of greats), instead of his son's, because they were more involved and harder working people than his children. That dedication to work (and education) has been passed down through the generations. Nope, I was hired on merit. Plenty of black people work for this company, I'm sure the quota was already met. Plus, I've made them money, millions, have awards for it, I'm sure I've earned my keep, and will continue to do so as long as they will have me. My vote was my vote, I voted for who I thought was the most conservative person running. The thought of a vote being wasted (as if it really matters) is the problem with voting anyways. [/quote] If you were really a Conservative you would be angry with Obama. Not making excuses for him. [/quote] I am, but I am also a realist. I know he doesn't make the laws, and I know he doesn't have to be there to sign what ever congress passes. I also know good jobs come with good perks. So there is no need to be upset with him.

President Obama is reportedly scheduled to be vacationing in Hawaii on January 2, the date billions in spending cuts - and untold consequences for the economy - will kick in if a deal is not reached on the "fiscal cliff."
According to the Hawaii Reporter, residents who live in the area of Oahu where Obama and his family vacation have been told that the usual restrictions on their movements during an Obama stay will be in place for 21 days, from December 17 through January 6.
