Bloviating Zeppelin: Costs

Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

Costs


Drudge believes the 2009 federal budget will cost each taxpayer $11,833.

Toby Harden, UK Telegraph, believes the 2010 Obama budget will cost each US taxpayer $25,573.48.

P.S.
My father's funeral will occur at noon today. As it turns out, the prior three photographers I had hoped might document this event cannot do so. I will be attending his funeral as not only a son but an official photographer. This is a very strange role to play. I hope I am up for this. I had hoped to speak. I don't believe this is in the cards, now.

Thank you David. I'll need every bit of every prayer in order to carry out my duties on Friday (this was written Thursday night).

Photographer. Survivor. Family member. Son. Documenter of this event.

My multiple roles are crashing into reality.

May HE WHO IS GOD grant you peace and serenity in this hard time. Death is temporary - - not final.

BZ, from what I've seen here, you will end up with the best possible pictures by doing it yourself. I can tell you first hand, the speaking part would be a whole lot harder, I've been there, but I would do it again if necessary. God be with you through this my friend.

I recall two previous posts, "My fathers face" Nov 18 and "Goodbye house" Nov 6, both were moving posts about the plight of father. Fact is, I don't know you BZ but one thing is strikingly apparant, your father raised a fine kid. Sending prayers your way ...

"How Dumb Do They Think We Are?"

We cannot sink into complacency, giving Obama a free ride to mediocrity. If we are going to go down We must go down Kicking

Just thinking about you.

Dad's funeral, doesn't get much worse than that.

Been there done that and it's NOT a good day.

If I would have, if I could have.

My thoughts are with you.

No other words needed. Take care of you.

We're talking government here and left-leaning government, so i think i'll go with $25K and counting figure.

I doubt it'll cost 'every' taxpayer that much though, probably an ever-shrinking section will be forced to pick up more of that tab for the rest of those who won't.
