May I suggest, Mr. President, that you ground Air Force One; and if you want to go on a vacation or chat with your constituents or smooze at Facebook or Google, or get out of the snow and come to California, go to nearby Camp David and use the phone or use Skype or other modern communications - and build snowmen. Not fly something that reportedly costs $100K a hour or more to fly. Ground all the Congressmen-and women who now take 'fact finding trips' to interesting places around the globe with spouses. Use modern communications. Cancel all the expensive parties at the White House. And PS: Why did we just give Egypt mega $$$ ??
