"Patriots are not revolutionaries trying to overthrow the government of the United States.
Patriots are Counter-Revolutionaries trying to prevent the government from overthrowing the Constitution."

Subject: Ludicrous Cost of Shrine for Hussein the First
gang. Get it up for the new mausoleum.
When a president dies, the country
pays for their burial. In the case of a president like JFK, who was a war hero and assassinated in the middle of a term, something extravagant is in order.
His burial at Arlington with the memorial paid for by the people cost almost $4
million in today’s money, adjusted for inflation. The Kennedy family paid for the casket, vault and the eternal flame.
Ronald Reagan, one of the most
influential men in history, is buried in California at his Presidential
Library, paid for by donations from the people and the Reagan family. In fact, other than
Kennedy, which we can all agree was warranted, no president has ever cost the
taxpayers more than $100K in today’s money to bury.
The clause in the Presidential
Contract enacted by congress in 1819 states that the president shall receive
the burial service deemed fit for his stature and that the cost of the funeral and
burial plot will be paid for by the people of a grateful nation. While every
president who has died in modern history, except Reagan, took advantage of that perk of the presidency, none have gone so far that anyone
would ever have noticed. Until now that is.
What an incredible display of unwarranted conceit!
Barack Obama has just submitted his
plans for burial in a plot that will house his entire family, citing the
Kennedys, the Tafts and the Roosevelts as precedent, inside a monument he had
designed to celebrate the nation’s first black president. The monument, will
cost the taxpayers roughly $120 million and will be listed
as a national historical place with 24 hour protection from the 3rd US Infantry
Regiment, just like the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.
The memorial would be built
immediately upon approval and occupy the Northeast quadrant of the lawn near
the Washington Monument with a view of the White House:
The monument itself would include
quotes from his years as president along with a giant bronze statue and burial crypts
for him and his family under a large arch:
You heard that right. Obama will be guarded
around the clock in a monument among those of our founding fathers and greatest
heroes, paid for by the taxpayer.
It’s not too late to call your
congressman and object.
