  •  Good catch. Yes. Dog whistle. Rant on vacations... (11+ / 0-)

    This is a good catch, yes, this helps show how f'd up our collective culture of wealth worship has become (that's really what Fox is, a church of white money). Over at Drudge, he's got mini-headlines quoting this guy quoting ol' Roger about several people.

    Now I rant about presidents and vacations, but it's short.

    No president is ever on "vacation." They have the capability to handle anything no matter where they are on the planet. The question is are they capable and competent, not where they happen to be at the time TSHTF.

    I get a bit miffed about presidential vacation jokes becuase a competent leader can lead from the golf course or the vacation house or during a family visit to "open spaces" if they want.

    Vacations are a luxury. I want the government who serves us to have vacations and I want vacations. I don't want 60 days paid a year, but I do want everyone to have at least 30. I want everyone to have a luxury like that. So when I see someone having more than my 15 days a year I don't complain about them -- I know they are being treated fairly. When I meet people who get little or no paid time off, I know they are being treated unfairly.
