How Come?

We are all in this together; we are our brother’s keeper! Change! Hope!

Along with all the other beautiful people on Martha’s Vineyard, Barack and Michelle share the 28 acre $35,000 a week estate with among others his sister Maya and her husband. The one person who could really use a vacation like that is none other than Zeituni Onyango, the aunt so affectionately described in Mr. Obama’s best-selling memoir Dreams from My Father, still living on the taxpayer dime in public housing in South Boston on Flaherty Way. Is that any way to treat your long lost relative? How come she couldn’t be flown over in Marine One for a goat roast or something, for old time’s sake! How come no one told Auntie? She could probably watch Marine One as it flies by tonight!

Obama and Michelle are traveling to Boston late Friday in anticipation of his eulogy of Ted Kennedy at the funeral Saturday; maybe they’re staying with her for the night. After all Flaherty Way in South Boston is only 3.2 miles and 11 minutes away according to Google Maps!

Maybe she's a money-grubbing ho, and Barack knows that so he keeps his distance.

You really think? How so?

You mean to tell me that if you traveled 800 miles to a vacation spot with a close relative living near by you wouldn't stop by and visit them, invite them over while you where in town? Not very sociable if you ask me! You think his half sister would bring it up? Why wouldn't he seek out his relatives?

Do you think he wonder's how she's doing? If she's getting enough government cheese? Is she staying out of the emergency room when she's sick?

I quess that's why Barack thinks the government and the taxpayers should be responsible for everyone because he sure doesn't believe that families should take care of their own. Well actually I don't know what he believes but I can sure see what he practices. I've never seen any evidence that he's extended a hand to any relative ever, kind of suprising when you think of all the stories of so many people being the first one of a family here in America and then one by one bringing over the whole family to the better life all working for the good of the family unit? You think that says anything about him personally as a man, or anything from a cultural stand point? I mean how many Irish or Italian or German or Russian or Nigerian or Somali or Lebanese or Chinese or Korean etc etc etc families have immigrated one family member at a time.

I suppose the real "reach" is to conjure up any excuse for why not!

how come you are so obsessed with this guy?

and his aunt?

why not drop her a line, if you are so concerned?

just a thought.

Who knows? Maybe she tried to wheedle money and favors out of him and he's burnt out. Maybe he's an ass. I don't have a lot of time to invest in it.

I don't see anything in the OP that's worthy of a discussion, and it appears by the responses that I'm correct.

Accordingly, it's considered a rant..........and it not permitted by the TOU.

If you have something meaningful to discuss.........then post it.........otherwise speak to the mirror in the bathroom.

Future rants will result in an infraction.
