The per diem for federal workers in Manhattan is $216. I think they'll survive.
 
2013-08-25 06:35:30 AM  
Doesn't all that money come out of the same pot anyway?  Presidential salary, secret service, White House staff, military, roads, all that stuff will come out of the taxpayer pot. So I am assuming the subby's low level irritating is whether this group of staff paid for their lunch with their wages or expenses?

Does the President have a per diem? I'm honestly not sure. Everyone else does but is he a regular GS level employee? I have no idea how to figure that out. If he isn't, then he pays for meals out of pocket. His detail can expense anything as long as they don't go over. It varies by region and time of year but it would be hard to go over in most places. It's a pretty generous per diem.
 
2013-08-25 06:53:09 AM  
Oh hang on, this was Rochester so the per diem would have been $96. Still...

Silly subby.  You're supposed to be outraged at Obama all of the time.

He has an expense account. I believe it is $50,000.

Are you sure it's not $50,000,000? I feel like I heard that on Fox.

Free food is socialisms!

Did the President politely order iced tea, or did he demand mother-farking-iced-tea?

(artichokes in tomato soup? RAGE!)

I'm sure Fox News will tell you he ordered a grape soda with no ice, and also a glass of ice, and he didn't tip.

It's Obama.  We're supposed to be outraged 24/7.  Even if he were to personally cure cancer.

"Breaking news: Barack Obama has personally destroyed revenue streams for several pharmaceutical companies and has laid off every oncologist in the United States."

Also, you think you're making a joke.  Conservatives' reaction to the HPV vaccine, which prevents cervical cancer, shows that you actually aren't.

I read it twice and I still don't know what she's upset about. Was the grilled cheese overcooked or something?
 
2013-08-25 10:43:26 AM  
Artichokes are elitist, subby.  A Real American would know that.
 
2013-08-25 10:56:56 AM  
FTFA: You know what else is kind of cheesy? That the Secret Service guys, willing to take the bullet for their boss, had to pay for their own lunch. I sure hope that they get to expense them (and their slushies at the Thruway stop). I'm a taxpayer, and I'm OK with that.

I would imagine that they get a per diem or expense account while on business travel, like most professionals.

I don't think she was upset about anything. It was more like an:

but NON-IRONICALLY.

If it's the right wing derp-o-sphere, no matter what follows "Are we suppoed to be outraged when Obama...", the answer is "yes." The whole point of the right wing media is to keep low-information voters permanently angry at President Obama and the Democratic Party in general.

This is Obama's Catch-22.

They do get a per diem, but if she were to research that, she wouldn't be outraged then would she?

Vapid local interest pieces are part of the "right wing derp-o-sphere", now?

You would assume that she could read. Books/Facts are like kryptonite to these people.

If you open a dictionary near them they explode like vampires.

Did they get the FANCY mustard too!?!? I have not forgotten!

Capers taste like tiny puke pellets.

tl;dr version:

Dear Mr. President: We ate at the same deli at different times. The end.

C) He's black.  You should always be outraged.

Lurk sober post drunk: wtf was that even about?


I dunno. I read it twice and I'm experiencing a sound like a mosquito buzzing in your ear. I'm going to have a Bloody Mary and study it out.
 
2013-08-25 11:54:14 AM  
I am personally outraged that in a internet chock full of troll-bait, subby has to chose a horrible op ed piece.

rzrwiresunrise: Wow. What a whiny biatch. I'm betting this is the same guy that won't tip his waiter cuz he forgot to fill his water just once.


CSB: a friend of mine who used to be a server once got tipped with a Chic tract. Not leaving anything would have been more valuable.

Also, wow. After just reading the word salad in the link all I got was "I don't like Obama, but have nothing of substance to say. That won't stop me from writing, of course, I just have so much bottled up passive aggression that I'm going to dedicate a paragraph to how it's a good thing Obama didn't order a soda, because we are die-hard about calling it pop here in Rochester; and had he done what he clearly didn't do, boy would he have been in hot water!" That's taking yelling at an empty chair to new levels.

Unless I read it wrong. Time for more coffee, I guess.

the guy is rich and makes good money.  why can't he spend it the way he wants?
 
2013-08-25 12:03:04 PM  
What the hell was that even about?
 
2013-08-25 12:03:36 PM  
I'm outraged at the implication that a grilled cheese sandwich and a bowl of tomato soup is too much cheese.
