  1. A very special thanks goes to lord Obama for keeping fuel prices sky high and for raising food prices through the roof.
    I hope him and his family enjoy the million dollar tax-payer funded vacations they take every other month.While the rest of America struggle to pay bills and keep food on the table,lord Obama and his clan enjoy endless amounts of sunshine while on vacation in Hawaii,paid for by us tax payers that still are lucky to have a job.
    SO,HOW’S THAT HOPE AND CHANGE WORKING OUT FOR YOU!!
    Don’t blame me,I voted for the old white guy who was a war hero!!
