They all spend our money, one way or another. Pointing a finger at one is just an exercise in futility.

Your right. I guess I should have said "they" (the gov) instead of "he".
Still I'm not an Oboma fan! But thats for another board.

I'm still waiting to find out what a tri trip is.

Where is the umbrella stand for this barbecue? All english barbecues come fitted with one as standard.

What do you mean, Sam and Dave gave Barry a ping pong table and the Greek central bank that means Barry broke even on the deal.

When Hilary Clinton had visited Spain in 2011, the current Prime Minister of Spain Mariano Rajoy, gifted her with an acorn fed Iberian black foot Jabugo, Ham from D.O. Jabugo, Huelva. The ham she received cost approximately 100 Euros a kilo. It is divine.

This is very common practice amongst governments, Royal Families and corporations too.

Have a nice Friday. Interesting post.
