Barack Obama

The President of Comedy

5/2/2010 10:28 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

President Barack Obama isn't worried about his approval rating here in the United States, because he's still well-loved in the country he was born in. *RIM SHOT!!!



Barack killed at last night's White House Correspondents' Association Dinner -- even lobbing a few grenades Jay Leno's way.

Afterward, we got Scarlett Johansson as she made her way through fans and autograph seekers -- where our camera guy threw out a pretty interesting wager ...

THIS HAS GOT TO BE PASSED ALONG TO AS MANY AS POSSIBLE OR WE WILL ALL GO DOWN THE DRAIN BECAUSE A FEW DON'T CARE.



This English teacher has phrased it the best I've seen yet. ...
Tomatoes and Cheap Labor



CHEAP TOMATOES?
This should make everyone think, be you Democrat, Republican or Independent



From a California school teacher - - -



"As you listen to the news about the student protests over illegal immigration, there are some things that you should be aware of:



I am in charge of the English-as-a-second-language department at a large southern California high school which is designated a Title 1 school, meaning that its students average lower socioeconomic and income levels



Most of the schools you are hearing about, South Gate High, Bell Gardens , Huntington Park , etc., where these students are protesting, are also Title 1 schools.



Title 1 schools are on the free breakfast and free lunch program. When I say free breakfast, I'm not talking a glass of milk and roll -- but a full breakfast and cereal bar with fruits and juices that would make a Marriott proud. The waste of this food is monumental, with trays and trays of it being dumped in the trash uneaten.



I estimate that well over 50% of these students are obese or at least moderately overweight. About 75% or more DO have cell phones. The school also provides day care centers for the unwed teenage pregnant girls (some as young as 13) so they can attend class without the inconvenience of having to arrange for babysitters or having family watch their kids.



I was ordered to spend $700,000 on my department or risk losing
funding for the upcoming year even though there was little need for anything; my budget was already substantial. I ended up buying new computers for the computer learning center, half of which, one month later, have been carved with graffiti by the appreciative students who obviously feel humbled and grateful to have a free education in America ..



I have had to intervene several times for young and substitute teachers whose classes consist of many illegal immigrant students, here in the country less then 3 months, who raised so much hell with the female teachers, calling them "Putas"(whores) and throwing things, that the teachers were in tears.



Free medical, free education, free food, free day care etc., etc, etc. Is it any wonder they feel entitled to not only be in this country but to demand rights, privileges and entitlements?



To those who want to point out how much these illegal immigrants contribute to our society because they LIKE their gardener and housekeeper and they like to pay less for tomatoes: spend some time in the real world of illegal immigration and see the TRUE costs.



Higher insurance, medical facilities closing, higher medical costs, more crime, lower standards of education in our schools, overcrowding, new diseases. For me, I'll pay more for tomatoes.



Americans, We need to wake up.



It does, however, have everything to do with culture: It involves an American third-world culture that does not value education, that accepts children getting pregnant and dropping out of school by 15 and that refuses to assimilate, and an American culture that has become so weak and worried about"political correctness" that we don't have the will to do anything about it.



If this makes your blood boil, as it did mine, forward this to everyone you know.



CHEAP LABOR? Isn't that what the whole immigration issue is about?



Business doesn't want to pay a decent wage.



Consumers don't want expensive produce.



Government will tell you Americans don't want the jobs.



But the bottom line is cheap labor. The phrase "cheap labor" is a myth, a farce, and a lie. There is no such thing as "cheap labor."



Take, for example, an illegal alien with a wife and five children. He takes a job for $5.00 or 6.00/hour. At that wage, with six dependents, he pays no income tax, yet at the end of the year, if he files an Income Tax Return, he gets an "earned income credit" of up to $3,200 free.



He qualifies for Section 8 housing and subsidized rent.



He qualifies for food stamps.



He qualifies for free (no deductible, no co-pay) health care.



His children get free breakfasts and lunches at school.



He requires bilingual teachers and books.



He qualifies for relief from high energy bills.



If they are, or become, aged, blind or disabled, they qualify for SSI. If qualified for SSI they can qualify for Medicaid. All of this is at (our) taxpayer's expense.



He doesn't worry about car insurance, life insurance, or homeowners insurance.



Taxpayers provide Spanish language signs, bulletins and printed material.



He and his family receive the equivalent of $20.00 to $30.00/hour in benefits.



Working Americans
are lucky to have $5.00 or $6..00/hour left after paying their bills and his.



Cheap labor? YEAH RIGHT!



THESE ARE THE QUESTIONS WE SHOULD BE ADDRESSING TO THE CONGRESSIONAL MEMBERS OF EITHER PARTY. 'AND WHEN THEY LIE TO US AND DON'T DO AS THEY SAY, WE SHOULD REPLACE THEM .



Please pass this on to as many as possible. Immigration legislation is to be considered in 2010. This is important to working Americans, our economy and our American culture and heritage..

Some think if we don't worship Obama we have no respect. Maybe it is time he gives us some respect and stops trying to ruin our lives. Most people are struggling more than we should be and yet he continues to joke about it. He says although he knows it is not funny that sometimes you just have to laugh..well, that's what Fox news does...laughs. Some of the things he does are just questionable at best. At least with Fox you hear about them.

Dear America, stop complaining. You reap what you sow. This is what you get for electing someone with limited political experience. Hilary would have your crappy country heading where it should be by now.

Obama shows he can be funny, as he made those jokes up himself. He is making history, and many people look up to him. He's a very respected man by the Democrats~ Keep up the good work, Obama, we are behind you all the way!

Even though it's been reported for weeks his speech writer has been working overtime with a group of professionals to come up with "his" jokes? The douchebag can't even address a group of 6th graders without his trusty teleprompter, yet you think he could do this? Liberals are dumber than dirt.

Mr. 202    

The guy with the red shirt and hat asking for the autograph is a freak. The video was taken outside of the French Embassy. Total freak! I was out there and he had a bag full of pictures he wanted to get signed, snot running down his nose. Just looked like a creep. Celebs beware of that guy for sure.
