Tareq & Michaele Salahi: Heroes or Crashers???

Yes!!! A blogger’s HEAVEN is the event that took place last week at the White House! Who knows if they were invited or not, but truthfully, I hope they weren’t. AND I think they should get a medal. A great big PLATINUM medal. I mean, what better way to show what a JOKE our Secret Service is, right? Not to mention, let’s go ahead and make a mockery of a fancy dinner for the Indian Prime Minister while the rest of us are trying to figure out how to pay for our Thanksgiving dinner!

I am seriously in LOVE with the Salahis, and I think if there are charges filed, they need to be brought against the director of the Secret Service, Mark Sullivan, who seriously dropped the ball. He said it himself that the Agency is “deeply concerned and embarassed” at the major breakdown in security. But hey, don’t worry, Mr. President, they went through the same screening procedures as everyone else for weapons! As they say, don’t hate the player, hate the game, right? I mean, this was an absolutely HUGE move! Bold, over-the-top, FABULOUS.

Some people are saying we shouldn’t “reward” the Salahis with their spot on the upcoming reality show, The Real Housewives of D.C. In fact, some are saying they should do some jail time or worse?! I say they should get their OWN show! They should write a BOOK on how to crash a party. Now even if you don’t think they should be “rewarded” with the reality spot, they should at least be rewarded for exposing our inadequecies in security. Hey, at least they weren’t some terrorists, okay? Now the Secret Service can re-evaluate their definition of “secure” for the future.

As far as this dinner is concerned, it’s a joke, okay? Our unemployment rate in this country is well over 10%, which only includes those CURRENTLY receiving benefits. It doesn’t include those who exhausted them NOR does it include people like me, who were self-employed. It doesn’t include people who took jobs flipping burgers at McDonald’s who used to run companies that went under due to this suffering economy. We’re HUNDREDS of BILLIONS of dollars in debt to China, but hey, let’s throw a party! Does anyone else see a problem here?

I challenge the White House staff to throw an equally expensive and much more expansive dinner for some of the people in this country who can’t afford groceries. I challenge them to stop throwing big fancy dinner parties and to start putting their money where their mouths are. Let’s put the money used for these parties back in the American people’s pockets. After all, it’s the taxes the American people pay which PAY for these engagements…or maybe it was China. Either way, I challenge the White House to give back. Give that money to the food banks who can’t keep up with the demand. Give it to the homeless shelters who are over capacity. And hey, Mr. President, why don’t you spend that time helping out the communities in your home country by serving at a soup kitchen or working at a food bank.

So, in my humble opinion, I vote that the Salahis are heroes, and they shouldn’t be charged with anything except being absolutely FEARLESSLY bold.

Til next time…
