New York Daily News reports anger at federal employee salary freeze.
Irate federal workers in New York had a few choice words for President Obama‘s decision Monday to freeze their wages for the next two years.

We are talking Manhattan, liberal Obama-loving NYC..
What is infuriating about this is our out-of-touch, arrogant president proposes this only After tripling the deficit and spending millions, if not billions, on trips to Spain and trips to India and every place else on the planet, playing golf and partying during the rare times he is actually in D. C., and now he wants to dump on citizens whether they be federal workers or old people. The only way this would be acceptable is if he and all members of congress would take $1.00 per year for two years. Then they could say they were true “public servants” and Obama would have his ever-lovin’ shared sacrifice. Only then.
Obama gets 12 stitches in his lip. First commenter on Gateway Pundit says, “why did they stop there?” I thought it was funny.
The White House says President Barack Obama has received 12 stitches in his lip after being hit during a pick up basketball game.
White House press secretary Robert Gibbs says the president was inadvertently struck by someone’s elbow Friday.
The president received the stitches in the doctor’s office on the ground floor of the White House. Obama had traveled to Fort McNair with a group of family and friends for an early morning game of basketball.
Can’t help but remember Tiger Woods’ little accident last year on black Friday. I wonder if there’s more to be revealed about this. Nah. But in this day of lies and spin, nothing is to be believed, especially coming out of this white house.
This also made me think of Joy Bahar saying last year she thought black Friday was racist. And she was serious.
