BuboBlog Makes a Political Statement

Folks, I've been meaning to comment on this for some time: Our federal government has enacted sweeping legislation that leaves hardworking Americans like you and me in the lurch.

They're reneging on on past promises and extending programs that were meant to be limited in scope. This is not the America that you or I grew up in.

This is an America that does not honor our wishes or plays by the rules. And I'm shocked and disappointed that President Obama, a man I voted for, would preside over this travesty.

Of course, I'm referring to the Commemorative State Quarters program.

It was only meant to last until there was a quarter for every state in the U.S. Then they extended it to territories, such as Guam.

Now, God forbid, they're putting out quarters for national parks??

Jesus, it was hard enough for me to find all 50 state quarters. This is supposed to be Elliot's family heirloom and I've completely run out of spaces in his keepsake quarter case.

Please...for the love of God...stop.
