  2. I had the very good fortune to be in Amsterdam for the Tulip Festival in 1961. I will never forget Rjiksmuseum! Van Gogh’s Nightwatch had a room of its own but not just because of its dimension. The harlequin of one character was unbelievable; the gold shimmered, the black seemed of velvet. “The Man in the Golden Helmet” was breathtaking. Anne Frank huis was closed to tourists, sadly. The Five Flies restaurant was terrific. All these and the city are wasted on this person.
    We took the ritual boat tour through the canals. The guide told us there is at least one rat for every person in Amsterdam. This person is equal to that.

      • Well, maybe “some actual work”, but I demand photographic proof that our President Rumplestilskin will do actual constructive, meaningful, beneficial work. There’s always a first time, I suppose.

    • He’s allocated 25 minutes for the Museum tour + the movement to his next meeting. Not going to get very much touring in, I’d guess. I don’t even see the point, to tell you the truth.

    • Sounds like you had a good tour of Amsterdam… on your own dime, I presume. When the president’s schedule includes ” tour the Rijksmuseum” it sounds like he’s getting a little vacation time in addition to whatever else he’s there for.

  3. I am confused…….now that Crimea has rejoined with Russia, I heard Putin named a new Capital of Russia and Obama was attending the celebration in Paris?? Or is it Next Week that France and Italy formally surrender to Putin?? Like I said, I get confused!

    Pretty sad that Former President Carter is typing correspondence on a typewriter and mailing the letters to foreign leaders because the NSA is snooping on the Ex Presidents along with the rest of us.

    • I saw the interview yesterday when that was mentioned by Pres. Carter about mailing all his letters to foreign leaders.
      It is still amazing to me that this is still going on, and even a previous Pres. puts up with it. (NSA Garbage going on)

  4. That is a very busy schedule!!!!!!!
    I do not see any room in that schedule for a nap.
    As far as the Rijksmuseum, I have never been their, however it I would think it would take longer than 25 mins. to tour.
    Than he has a 15 min. meeting with Pres. Xi Jinping of China.
    Does the meeting really mean, Just meet, say hello, and move on?

  5. I have been hearing the comment on the news of Govt. tagging along with Union Inspectors. Does anyone know the details of this?
    Sorry off Topic.

  6. You have to wonder how many of the countries he is visiting during this latest junket (on our dime of course) that he will manage to piss off and alienate. Visiting the Vatican I see and then the country of his faith, Saudi Arabia.

    Bet the leader of China will ask Dictator Obama to give the Termite Queen, Moochelle, a call and tell her to leave China today.
