    "Biden Earned $21,000 Last Year From the Secret Service

    Vice President Joe Biden last year earned $20,900 in rental income from the Secret Service, which is paying him to host agents on his property so they can protect him.

    Most high-profile people in need of protection pay people to keep them safe. Government officials are allowed to have taxpayers pick up the tab. Biden is unique in that he actually gets paid by his bodyguards for the right to protect him.

    Of course, the Bidens badly need the money. They only had an adjusted gross income of $379,035 last year. This probably also explains why they gave less than 1.5 percent of their income to charity."

    These folks don't believe in giving to charity, their Secretary of Treasury doesn't pay his taxes, now this guy charges the taxpayer for a detail assigned to protect him.....


    What is the word...? "Chutzpah"?


    Did you see his income? Did you know that makes him one of the dreadful "1%"?


    I can't wait for November.....

    LOL yeah, I guess it does. Vice President Biden is kind of a joke, frankly. God bless and keep President Obama in good health, is all I can say.

    So he's not staying at the house at the Naval Observatory, and the SS has to be nearby.
    For a Democrat this is not an ethical issue.
    For a Republican this would be an ethical issue, so an R should not do it.

    i suggest you learn something about Paganism before demonstrating your ignorance so thoroughly again.

    Here's a start: Horned God - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Man's fantasies of false gods don't count. I am not ignorant, just smart enough to know fake when I see it.

    Also, I don't hold stock in wikipedia being anything close to truth.

    If you really believed that, you'd reject the Christian God, which is "man's fantasy of false gods" on EXACTLY the same evidence that the Horned God is -- that is to say, none.

    And no, you can't recognize fake when you see it. Your mind is enslaved by dogma, and what you mean by "fake" is simply "foreign." You are a child proclaiming that someone else's car is not a real car because it's not the same color as your daddy's. You have never actually THOUGHT about this for a second. Your mind is in chains, and you are incapable of thought.

    All gods are false gods. All are fabrications of man.

    "Men rarely (if ever) manage to dream up a god superior to themselves. Most gods have the manners and morals of a spoiled child."— Robert A. Heinlein

    Wrong as usual. I have looked at other so called religions. Only one truth, God of creation, Son Jesus, and Holy Spirit. The only horned so called, and a lie, god is satan, represented by the way by a DRAGON!!
