In one of the greatest ironies since irony was discovered the Bush presidential library opened yesterday.
All presidential libraries are an expensive tribute to ego and arrogance.
While presidential libraries are (very) privately financed once completed they are maintained with a mix of an endowment (very privately donated) and public tax payer dollars.
George Bush Jr. has the largest most expensive presidential library since they started building them. It isn’t just the largest in square footage, it cost more than any ever built ADJUSTED FOR INFLATION.
One hopes sequestration will chop the tax dollar funding to wash the Pigeon poo off the face of his bronze statue or dust his boots.…
WE ARE CHOPPING SOCIAL SECURITY, MEDICARE AND MEDICAID. But we seem to have the money for this.
One of the riveting displays. ^
Tee Hee.. Two of you sent me this cartoon within the same hour. I guess it belongs here. 😉
