Fw: Public Housing

The problem with public housing is that the residents are not the owners.

The people that live in the house did not earn the house, but were loaned
the property from the true owners, the taxpayers. Because of this, the
residents do not have the "pride of ownership" that comes with the hard work
necessary. In fact, the opposite happens and the residents resent their
benefactors because the very house is a constant reminder that they
themselves did not earn the right to live in the house. They do not
appreciate the value of the property and see no need to maintain or respect
it in any way.

The result is the same whether you are talking about a studio apartment or a
magnificent mansion full of priceless antiques. If the people who live there
do not feel they earned the privilege, they will make this known through
their actions.

 The picture below illustrates the point���

The Resolute Desk was built from the timbers of the HMS Resolute

and was a gift from Queen Victoria to President Rutherford B. Hayes.

It is considered a national treasure and icon of the presidency.

Mr. Obama, with all due respect, get your *F@k#n* feet off our desk!

*As a matter of fact, get the hell out of the peoples' house and take your
arrogant staff with you.*

Scroll down for a photo of W. with his feet on the same desk.

Snopes says it better:

"If a U.S. President's putting his feet up on the Oval Office desk is an indication that "he thinks of himself as a king" and should be "inundated" with mail "demanding he stop desecrating his office," then we seem to have missed the boat on that issue — identical actions by President Obama's predecessors in the White House provoked no such outrage, as demonstrated by the following unremarked-upon photographs of Presidents George W. Bush and Gerald Ford"

Frown if you must, but I'm pretty sure that's how you unlock the secret treasure map compartment.

"Mr. Obama, with all due respect, ..."

Oh my.

They're playing the 'due respect' card now.

Little late in the game for that, me hearties.
You shit all over that card last year; so spare
us your fake respect of office.

Heh - before 9/11/2001, I went on a tour of the West Wing including spending a fair bit of time in the Oval Office (honest). Aaaaannnddd... ta da! I actually have a photo of ME sitting with my feet up on the desk just like this!!

ROTFLOL!!!! I'll bet that there's a lot other photos out there of citizens doing exactly the same thing. Get over it, ya losers. As a taxpayer, it's MY desk, too.

But I didn't find the secret treasure map. Dang!!

Love or loath politicians, the fact is that these *citizens* pay taxes, just like contards do. So it's just as much *their* desk as it is the desk of any taxpayer. And the White House isn't "public" housing. How dumb is that??

Racist, much?? Silent dog whistle for the rightwing bigots, much? Righwing propoganda, much?

Again with the "our desk" crap. Yoo hoo, conservatives: it's not just "your" country. It belongs to all citizens, including the ones in the **** photo.

The president has my permission to put his feet up on my desk. In fact, I expect to give him permission in 2012 to do it for four more years, unless the GOP nominate someone better for the job (fat chance!).

why all that talk about taxpayer-funded housing to complain about a desk given by the queen of england???

Tootseye said...

Hey last Anon. post: stop making sense!!! lol... good catch. dumb and dumber.

Frankly, any Pres - whether Dem, Repub or Indie - has my permission to put their feet on my desk. I really don't give a S***. I have more important things to do and think about because I have a life.

For the last time, decide if you're populist or elitist. Populists like it when politicians do that everyday stuff us normal Americans do, like writing notes on our hands and putting our feet up.

Obama can do what he wants with his desk.
