Kobe steaks for king O. Date nights in Manhattan for a million. $600 sneakers for Meesh. And nothing's too good for SEIU and his thug army. Trillions on the backs of our kids, but no cheezboigers for the troops.
In order to fund Obama's counter insurgency in America, the enemy must be cut off of supplies, succor and support:
"One of the ways we're going to do that -- in order to accommodate the troop increase and get re-focused on the mission at hand -- is to cut back on some of the non-essentials. That includes some of the morale, welfare and recreation facilities throughout

'This is a war zone -- not an amusement park,' U.S. commander says after ordering most fast-food outlets in Kandahar base shut
Canada's Tim Hortons coffee shop at Kandahar Airfield will remain open despite a shutdown of Pizza Hut, Burger King and other U.S. outlets deemed too luxurious by top American commanders of NATO troops.
"Kandahar Airfield Tim Hortons is an initiative to support our men and women in uniform for serving in Afghanistan," Defence Department spokeswoman Megan MacLean said. "There are no plans to close the Tim Hortons."
Army Gen. Stanley McChrystal, the top U.S. commander in Afghanistan, who leads the International Security Assistance Force, has ordered most fast-food outlets on the boardwalk inside the airfield base shuttered. Command Sgt. Maj. Michael T. Hall revealed the plan in a post on an ISAF blog last month.
"Many of you have heard that there are plans to shut down some of the ‘amenities' throughout Afghanistan," he wrote. "This is not rumour. It is fact. This is a war zone -- not an amusement park."
Sgt. Maj. Hall said he and Gen. McChrystal had been looking for ways to do things more efficiently and to optimize ISAF resources from the moment they arrived in Afghanistan last summer. Gen. McChrystal is overseeing the surge in U.S. troops and resources over coming months.

Just hanging out with friends: The president and the first lady don 3-D glasses to watch the Super Bowl at a Super Bowl party in the family theatre of the White House
The presidential snack: Carrots, pear, cheese and Pepperidge Farm crackers - with the Butterfly crackers carefully positioned at the top. Pepperidge Farm's Butterfly crackers
All-American kind of guy: President Obama tosses an American football in the Oval Office in April
The presidential golf swing: Secret Service agents stand watch as Mr Obama practises before an event in Los Angeles in March
And the president takes in some afternoon putting with Joe Biden on the White House putting green in April
