Tyler, Texas (KETK) — Happy 4th of July, Camp Lejeune, North Carolina.
By the way, we won't be having a fireworks show this year because of the sequestration.
Let me get this straight.
This is Camp Lejeune which is full of military famililes who make no money being in the service.
The fireworks show is an event all families there look forward to, but no fireworks because the government can't afford it.
This is the government that is trying to give the IRS a $70-million performance bonus.
We just sent the president to Africa for $100-million.
Back to the fireworks story.
So, the company which puts on the show felt sorry for the families at Camp Lejeune so they offered to do the show for free.
The feds said no, we can't afford it because of the sequestration.
It went back and forth and now you can figure out why they don't want the fireworks.
Punishment for the Republicans that would not go along with more spending.
That's why the White House is closed for tours.
They are trying to convince people that anyone on the right is bad and if they were not so bad we'd have fireworks and tours.
The Washington Times reports the feds pay $20-40-thousand for cabinet officers portraits.
Take a picture.
Buy an iPhone.
This is all they need.
Take a look at the secretary of weather and sports, Scott Chesner and Danny Elzner.
There, that's all you need.
We're being punished by our own government.
That's my point of view, what's yours?
