Something nice to say about the Obamas?

Yes, and it's not even an April Fool's joke. From Neal Boortz:

A GOOD DEED FROM THE OBAMAS

The Obama's have decided that now is not the time to take $100,000 of taxpayer dollars to re-do the White House. This allotment is offered to every incoming president to renovate, but the Obama's have decided that they are going to pay for any changes out of their own pockets. Give them credit for this one. PrezBO hasn't even redecorated the Oval Office used by the hated George Bush.

Of course there are plenty of other things that one could complain about. Some are mentioned as links in Neal's Reading Assignments today, while other links there are just fun or interesting things. See for yourself:

READING ASSIGNMENTS

The Senate has voted to use revenues from cap-and-trade auctions to pay for higher gas and electricity prices .. I assume this will be limited to "poor" people.

Rick Wagoner got the boot from Obama in order to "start a new vision" .. why didn't the UAW's Ron Gettelfinger get "a new start" as well?

More than half of Americans do not support Obama's plan to bail out troubled banks.

Lawmakers in Washington want to end the travel ban to Cuba. This one won't go down without a fight.

Did you really think that every single penny of this economic stimulus package was actually going to be used to stimulate the economy and not wasted on pork projects?

Here are some more details of Obama Motor's government guarantee. Speaking of which, someone has created a mock phone call to the White House's auto warrantee department.

What are politicians having the taxpayers cough up the cash for their car payments? Needless to say, they aren't worried about your wallets.

A science advisor to Hillary Clinton says that there are too many people living on our planet.

Mark Steyn quickly highlights what happens when people slip from government "investing" to government control.

Here's an article from Forbes magazine explaining how our government has gone wild.

Just what we need .. air pollution monitors around our government schools. It's the kid's minds that are being polluted, not their lungs.

Residents in Washington are having to smuggle dishwashing detergent from Idaho because of local laws which ban detergents that actually work .. because of their effect on the environment.

Did you know that the taxpayers are funding government education experiments like teaching 4th and 5th graders in Baltimore City about a career in transportation technology?

What happens when a school in Canada installs an illegal cellphone jammer?

A redneck DUI.

I could wish that some of these were an April Fools joke!

Funny how $100,000.00 is too much to take from taxpayers right now but $2,000,000,000,000.00 is not enough.....

Yes, that's too true. If only the President were as frugal with national budget. We need less symbolic gestures, and more common sense. Not compounding Bush's mistake of spending money we don't have, and further devaluating our currency.
