It ain't peanuts, Jimmy

Several news sources were reporting yesterday that on top of the tens of thousands of dollars he receives in pension benefits, ($199,000) and more hundreds of thousands in Secret Service protective services and office/personal staffing expenses, Jimmy Carter has the taxpayers picking up the tab for yard and pool maintenance on his home in Plains, GA to the tune of more than $67,000 a year even though it is not a federal government property.

At a time of such huge federal deficits, it would seem that a man who made millions from peanut farming before he became governor of Georgia and subsequently a one-term president, surely has the pocket change to pay his yard workers. Damn all, Jimmy, in these times, $67,000 ain't exactly peanuts man. Maybe you could get Hugo Chavez to pick up the tab, hmmm?

By the way, has Immigration checked those yard workers' papers?
