Re: “Letters

You are correct, it wasn't Air Force One like someone said: it was THREE aircraft. Typical of you, you use a 'well Bush did it' argument to justify waste. If you are going to call out wasteful spending, call out ALL wasteful spending. Everyone in Washington is a money spending elitist.

Re: “Letters

Hey, Mr. Bill Sulzman, well researched letter on the Thunderbirds flyover. I'm wondering why you didn't calculate the $$ needed to get Joe Biden here for the Commencement address? The armoured motorcade, which are gas-guzzling tanks, Air Force 2 for Biden, the $$ forked out for hotels, Secret Service... all on the taxpayers dime. I guess that didn't bother you. I'm sure you found his prescence at USAFA necessary, but not the T-birds. By the way, the Academy's annual economic impact to the COS community: $650 million. That's 13000 flyovers at your $50,000 a pop.

Oh, maybe you could rail on the Obama's night on the town in NY for us. Let me help: Taxpayers footed the bill for the big night on the town, which included a total of at least $24,000 for the three aircraft used to ferry the Obamas, aides and reporters to New York and back.

Woud you call that "...expensive. Some might say wasteful"?
