Obama Proclaims April the Month to Teach Young People ‘How to Budget Responsibly’
President Barack Obama, who has increased the national debt by $53,377 per household, has proclaimed April “National Financial Capability Month,” during which his administration will do things such as teach young people “how to budget responsibly."
“I call upon all Americans to observe this month with programs and activities to improve their understanding of financial principles and practices,” Obama said in an official proclamation released Friday.
“My Administration is dedicated to helping people make sound decisions in the marketplace,” he said.
"Together, we can prepare young people to tackle financial challenges--from learning how to budget responsibly to saving for college, starting a business, or opening a retirement account,” he said.
“My Administration continues to encourage responsibility at all levels of our financial system by cracking down on deceptive practices and ensuring that consumers are informed of their rights,” he said.
The proclamation on the White House website links to two other government websites: the site for the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, and MyMoney.gov, which includes materials from 21 federal agencies.
Listed among the “popular topics” on MyMoney.gov is “Managing Debt and Credit,” which includes a link to a page on the Federal Reserve’s website called “Getting the most from your credit card.” Tip 2 on that page is: “Stay Below Your Credit Limit.”
When Obama was inaugurated on Jan. 20, 2009, the total debt of the federal government was $10,626,877,048,913.08. As of the close of business on March 28, 2013, the total debt of the federal government was $16,766,988,432,792.62—an increase of $6,140,111,383,879.54 since Obama took office.
That means that under Obama the federal debt has increased $53,377 for each one of the 115,031,000 households the Census Bureau says there are now in the United States. The president is required by law to submit a budget proposal for the next fiscal year by the first Monday in February.
Thus far, Obama has not submitted his budget proposal for fiscal 2014.
How does that make you feel, knowing your kids are being instructed by this idiot???!!!

An Israeli sense of humor at UN set the record straight. An ingenious example of speech and politics occurred recently in the United Nations Assembly and made the world community smile.
A representative from Israel began: “To whom does the land of Israel belong?"
"Before beginning my talk, I want to tell you something about Moses: When he struck the rock and it brought forth water, he thought, ‘What a good opportunity to have a bath!’ "
“Moses removed his clothes, put them aside on the rock and entered the water.
“When he got out and wanted to dress, his clothes had vanished.
“A Palestinian had stolen them!”
The Palestinian representative at the UN jumped up furiously and shouted, “What are you talking about? The Palestinians weren't there then.”
The Israeli representative smiled and said,
“And now that we have made that clear, I will begin my speech…”

A man is driving along a highway and
sees a rabbit jump out across the
middle of the road.
He swerves to avoid hitting it,
but unfortunately the rabbit jumps
right in front of the car.
The driver, a sensitive man as
well as an animal lover, pulls
over and gets out to see what
has become of the rabbit.
Much to his dismay, the rabbit is the Easter Bunny, and he is DEAD.
The driver feels so awful
that he begins to cry.
A beautiful blonde woman
driving down the highway
sees a man crying on the side of
the road and pulls over.
She steps out of the car and
asks the man what’s wrong.
"I feel terrible," he explains,
"I accidentally hit the Easter Bunny
with my car and KILLED HIM."
The blonde says,"Don't worry."
She runs to her car
and pulls out a spray can.
She walks over to the limp, dead
Easter Bunny, bends down,
and sprays the contents onto him.
The Easter Bunny jumps up,
waves its paw at the two of them
and hops off down the road.
Ten feet away he stops,
turns around and waves again,
he hops down the road another
10 feet, turns and waves,
hops another ten feet,
turns and waves,
and repeats this again and
again and again and again,
until he hops out of sight.
The man is astonished.
He runs over to the woman
"What is in that can?
What did you spray on the
The woman turns the can
around so that the man
can read the label.
(Are you ready for this?)
(Are you sure?)
(You know you're
gonna be sorry)
(OK, here it is)
Restores life to dead hair,
and adds permanent wave."

Today my quilty friends are coming over to go through the quilting stash I have amassed that I am now willing to admit I am not going to use again. Or EVER.
Yep, Patterns, fabrics, books....................seven boxes of stuff. And one of the boxes is a BIG one.
I have cleared out my quilt room finally, only keeping that which I really do want to work on. Or at least THINK I might want to work on.
There's tons of stuff I have no idea what I was thinking about when I just had to buy it. Duplicates of a lot of patterns (I must have REALLY liked them!) and duplicate books. No reason to hang on to it, and no reason to not pass it on to my friends who want it, right?
Now here's the good news! Putting all that stuff together for them took over four hours. I wasn't just moseying along, either. I actually broke out a sweat, and kept going.
Yeah, me. It was a great cardio workout, and I was even lifting weights. What fun and progress!!
