Obama was raising millions of dollars over two days of campaigning in Los Angeles and San Francisco. He was capping his night at a ritzy 150-guest dinner costing $25,000 person.
... a high-dollar “ private dinner with Governor Mitt Romney” that will cost from $25000 to $75000 per person
About 120 people attended the fundraising dinner, dubbed the "Obama Classic," at a cost of $20,000 a person. After the dinner, Obama was expected to don gym clothes and shoot hoops.
The cost of attending dinner with Romney is $25,000 per person.
Who has the most money? A person would have to be slow in mind and figures to think a lot of ‘poor’ folks sent in $10 and raised this kind of money!
$668,614,678 RAised ($669 Million)
$639,969,444 Raised ($640 Million)
Folks they are spending over a Billion dollars ($1.3) of someone else’s money) to be elected. And it ain’t over yet!
There is no party of the working man, and there is no party of the Wealthy. Both parties are run by RICH people, singing different songs. We have to filter thru the BS, look at results and decide whose music to dance to.
Not that these folks in DC are inherently bad, they are human and have their own ideas what is good for the country. One of their biggest problems was brought out in a comment by ‘Bucko’. “Congress tends to kick the problem down the road.” (vice dealing with it.)
From what I have seen, in the last 40 years, Americans cannot deal with the stark truth, we need controls put on spending, we need a budget. One that reflects reality, not dreams.
Countries have tried ‘every one is equal, share the wealth’ and it has failed miserably. Those countries still had the filthy rich and the dirt poor. You think a communist leader lived off $500 a month? Nay my friend, he had millions then billions a villa in the mts etc, while telling the poor peasant we are sharing and sharing alike. ha!
Sharing the wealth is sorta like the top person in a college class who has burned the midnight oil, stuck to his/her studies, sharing the grades with the party animal who comes in every morning to class with a hang over. It is NOT FAIR, no matter how loud you yell.
Sorry I rambled, but we Americans are gonna one day have to face facts, We need a budget that makes fiscal sense. I also know why I wasn’t invited to Dinner!!!!
It is smart for a person who is well off to have a budget, no one has enough money to WASTE!
I remember after WWII a place on Wilkinson BLVD had a fuselage of a Cargo plane on their roof. I looked forward to seeing it when Dad drove by.
