Do You Know the Muffin Man, the Muffin Man?

What could I do with $4200?  Pondering that for a few minutes led me to the following list:
* Buy Groceries for my family for approximately 9 months
* Purchase a 1999 Mercedes Benz E430 sedan from
* Pay for 4 semesters of community college tuition for my son
* Take my wife on a long overdue vacation of a lifetime
* and my personal favorite... Buy a Glock 19 (one of the finest handguns in the world)
  AND a Mossberg 500 Cruiser 12 gauge shotgun AND 175 rounds of ammunition for
  both FOR EACH member of my family.  Now that would be money well spent.

In August of 2009, the Obama/Holder Department of Justice had $4200 in taxpayer monies to spend.  They bought muffins.  250 muffins for a DOJ training conference.  I'll do the math for you, that is $16.80 per muffin.  Now friends, I have had my share of muffins.  Chocolate, blueberry, apple crisp, etc.  I have yet to consume one that I would deem worthy of $16.80 of my or anyone else's money.

I know, I know, you liberal apologists are saying, "but $4200 is a nano-drop in the bucket of federal spending.  Why are we talking about muffins when there are trillions at stake?".  I'll tell you why.  Muffin-Gate is a stark symbol of the absolute scorn and indifference all areas of the federal government have for the American Taxpayer.  Each one of those 4200 dollars spent on muffins was confiscated from an American Taxpayer against their will, under threat of imprisonment.  Now, 2 years after Muffinpalooza, BO is back for more.  Dear Leader wants to raise taxes on our most productive citizens.  Maybe we should just cut him a break, after all he could have his eye on a really nice peach cobbler.
