      Here’s another … Under the Obama’s administration that I refer to as “The Bad Deal” You keep the two cows, pay for their feed, vet bills etc. and turn all of the milk over to the Government and they in turn redistribute it. However, by the time the corrupt officials take their share and actualy distribute it, it has soured.
