Before I say anything on this, I want to state that I would be writing this regardless of any political affiliation. I'm an independent thinking, smart American and also the estimated population of the United States is 316,436,465 and If you break that down, each citizen is $52,923.56 in debt. Why do we waste money on stupid things? For example, according to the telegraph, Bo, the president's Portuguese Water Dog, arrived separately from the first family on Martha Vineyard yesterday, flown in, by himself on one of two MV-22 Ospreys, a hybrid aircraft which takes off like a helicopter but flies like a plane.

Why? Why can't you get him to the public steamship authority and ship him over like any other dog. I'm sure no other country or terrorist is planning to assassinate the presidential dog.

The aircraft costs more than $10,000 per hour to operate, and is being used even while the president steps up his complaints about curbs on federal spending.

Hello! I have a way to save some money! Don't give your dog a private aircraft? Rant over.
