The attitude in DC is that the laws and the things the commoners are required to do just don’t apply to the elites. They don’t pay their taxes, they exempt themselves from laws, they drive under the influence, they run their own servers and one of them uses his pen and phone to circumvent Congress and violate the Constitution.
Delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton, the non voting member from DC, is one such person who thinks she does not have to follow the same standards as the rest of us. Se was recently recorded as she attempted to park her car. The lines marking the spaces were on one angle and she tried to park on another angle. As seen in the video every other car is angled in the opposite direction in which Norton tries to park.
She wanted that spot and she wanted to park facing the direction she did and nothing, including the correct way, was going to stop her. She is recorded for a number of minutes and she rubs against a properly parked car at least once. There is no indication she left a note letting the other driver know his car had been struck. Once again, the rules don’t apply to her. Perhaps she could not fathom that she was wrong because she is an elitist member of Congress so it must have been the others who were in the wrong.
Of course there are many reasons this could have happened that might have nothing to do with entitlement though I am sure that mentality played into it. It is quite possible that at the age of 77 she could not comprehend that the other cars were parked on a completely opposite angle. Perhaps she thought she left a note like she claims (even though the recording does not show her doing it) but she was frazzled by the 30 minute parking ordeal and failed to do so.
Perhaps she is just incompetent.
Maybe, given her past of seeing racism in everything, she was dead set against parking in the direction of the lines because they were white.
Hell, for all we know she was distracted because she was practicing her hands up don’t shoot move so she could impress her friends.
Holmes has made some really stupid statements in the past so her intelligence has always been in doubt and her inability to park in the correct direction (forget the lines the cars were all facing a different way) does nothing to dispel the notion that she is not very bright.
I am glad that a few folks were there to record this otherwise she probably would have denied the entire thing. She did claim to leave a note even though we do not se her do it (she and someone else just walked away) so it would not be beyond reason that she would deny ever parking that way or ever striking another car.
After all, she is the one who said:
“You don’t have a right to know everything in a separation-of-powers government, my friend. That is the difference between a parliamentary government and a separation-of-powers government.”
You don’t have the right to know…
But we do know. We know you either can’t drive or don’t think you should have to do what everyone else does.
Probably a little of both.
Never surrender, never submit.

Moochelle Obama was out on the campaign trail, no doubt proud of her country for the first time in her life, and she was talking about how the rich need to do more for the poor. She is likely unaware that the top 50% of wage earners (the rich would be located at the top of that group) pay all the federal income taxes in this country and the bottom 50% get that tax money in the form of social programs. She is also probably not aware that social programs enacted by Democrats have enslaved people to government and kept them from achieving.
“Will we be a country where success is limited to the few at the top? This country is strongest when we are all better off.” Washington Examiner
Obama is not aware that success is not limited to the few at the top. Anyone in America who has the desire and the education can succeed. What Obama really means is are we going to allow people on welfare to get fewer benefits because the rich are already taxed too much? Yes, the rich pay most of the federal taxes in this country and progressives have redistributed that money for all kinds of unconstitutional and unnecessary programs in the name of social justice.
They do not care that their programs keep people enslaved. Let me rephrase, they care but not for the reasons sane people would. They care because they want, no they NEED, people to be enslaved to government. It is how they continue to get people voting for them and their agenda to rob the rich to pay the poor. Theirs is a plan that has always led to failure. It has taken nearly a century but the failure of Democrat social programs becomes more evident each day. It will only get worse.
The ironic thing is that Obama and her hubby, Barack, are both rich and they also live life high on the hog on taxpayer money. Moochelle goes on expensive vacations (16 in the last three years, some with her husband, some without) that cost the taxpayers lots of money. The argument that it is part of the gig does not hold water. We are in tough economic times and we cannot afford such extravagance. If Obama and her hubby want people to sacrifice (they keep saying we all need to sacrifice – shared sacrifice they call it) they need to lead by example. Every few weeks she is off on another trip with hoards of people and he is on a golf course someplace. Sacrifice, yes for you but not for them. They are American royalty, after all.
Another ironic thing is that Moochelle was saying all of this to people who are very wealthy and who paid a lot of money to hear her talk. The money was raised to help keep her husband in office.
It was probably a drop in the bucket since Barack has been using billions of dollars in taxpayer money to buy votes and get donations. His waste of taxpayer money on green energy companies that end up going out of business and leaving the taxpayer with billions in losses is a scheme to get him more campaign cash. This is also true of his union bailouts and gifts of taxpayer money.
This group of thugs is a criminal enterprise. It is nothing more than Chicago style politics and that means it is corrupt from beginning to end.
Maybe instead of asking the wealthy to sacrifice more than they already have Moochelle could ask unpatriotic folks who pay NO taxes to pony up and get some skin in the game.
And maybe she and hubby could give up those expensive meals they love to stuff in their faces
It is hard to discuss how we are all better off by having the rich sacrifice more when the Obamas routinely eat $150 a POUND Wagyu steak.
Moochelle does not care if we are all better off as long as she is better off.
I guess she is living in one of those two Americas John Edwards used to talk about.
And you can bet your paycheck that it is not the poor one and that she wants to stay there and that she does not care where you are.
It is how progressives work. They use class warfare to pit people against each other. They pretend to worry about the poor while pushing policies that keep people in poverty (or in the case of Barack, put even more people in poverty) and they work hard to make sure they are wealthy and remain that way.
Let’s fire them in November and put some people with class in the White House.
Never surrender, never submit.

Isn’t it interesting how things change when politicians get elected? All during the campaign Barack Obama portrayed himself to be one of us, an outsider who was here to change politics as usual. He was an average guy like us and the campaign was not about him but about all of us. No one on the left paid attention to the political connections he has and the money that was thrown his way. This so called average guy has a million dollar home partly paid for by friends and his wife got a high paying job because of his political clout. But pay no attention to that, the guy is an average Joe the Senator…
Here we are in tough economic times (though the crowd at the malls this weekend tells me they are not that tough) where Americans are losing jobs and people are forced to cut back. We have unemployment rising and people losing tens of thousands of dollars in the market and from their retirment accounts. It is a mess and we are all in this together.
All of us except Barack Obama who purchased a $30,000 ring for his wife. He bought her the ring (actually it is being specially made) for supporting him which is kind of strange because married people are supposed to support each other. My wife supports me and I her and neither of us feels compelled to buy the other a $30,000 ring. The last celebrity who bought his wife an expensive ring (that was made newsworthy) was Kobe Bryant and that was because he was having sex with another woman. Obama will screw the nation but that does not count as infidelity.
In today’s economic climate it would have been a lot better if Obama had waited or had kept this quiet. Now he looks even more like a hypocrite.
One also needs to ask about the material for the ring. It will be made of rhodium which is rare. Only a small quantity is mined each year in Africa. What kind of conditions do those miners work under and how did this purchase help to exploit them. The ring will have diamonds so one has to wonder what kind of mine they came from as well.
Also, it might have been a good idea for the guy who claims that jobs left America under George Bush to have an American company make the ring. Instead of outsourcing the job he could have had it made here with American materials. It would have been nice if his $30k had been pumped into the American economy…
But then again, Democrats (especially the liberal elitists) believe that you should do as they say and not as they do.
