Dude, where´s my car elevator? Inside
Mitt Romney’s new $9million Utah ski chalet

Daily Mail (UK), by Joshua Gardner

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 10/8/2013 11:14:10 AM

Former presidential candidate Mitt Romney intends to buy a $9million Park City, Utah ski chalet to complement his family homes in California, Boston, and New Hampshire. The 8,730 foot vacation mansion is in the ski destination´s Deer Valley resort and, while it doesn´t have a $55,000 car elevator like Romney´s La Jolla home, the chalet does rest right on the slope and may be skied into and out of. The six bedroom home´s most noticeable features is its prevalence of wood. The lodge-like home features wooden floors, walls, and furniture that brokers call Utah rustic. The home was once featured

Before the hammering on the Romneys begins, I want to say thank you, Governor, for offering your services and also to say I don´t care how elaborate their Utah home is. It is their money and it was honestly acquired. I wish nothing but good things for the Romney family.

Is he not a private citizen? Why should I care how much he spends or what he spends it on? Wish him and his family only the best and the media can go somewhere very, very hot.

Why is Mitt Romney´s wealth and expenditures still a national focus? If he wasn´t satisfied that $250 mil is enough to buy his needs and wants, he could have had $11 bil in the Cayn=mans along with obMao and Kerry´s cash funds. Condemn all such expenditures or give them all a pass IMO.

And who cares anyway as in Thou shalt not covet. (Main reason not to is it makes a person less God-friendly and filled with gratitude for own piece of the pie).

I wonder, if Romney were our President, would we be in the shutdown and have the looming debt ceiling crisis. And would he be refusing to negotiate with the Dems? Makes me sad to think of the what-ifs.

"prevalence of wood". Yikes, what an understatement. $9MM is well overpriced, in my opinion.

BTW, Daily Mail - a quick map check would reveal that a "ski estate" in Holladay is, well, pretty well impossible (unless he plans to build his own mountain).

To my knowledge, Mitt didn´t steal one cent of one dollar that he spends on anything --be it a gallon of milk or a $9 million house.

More power to him.

Every cent Mitt spends puts $$$$ in someone else´s pocket, and not one cent of it is "redistribution." Not one cent of what Mitt spreads around was stolen from someone else for redistribution.

This is Romney´s money; he can spend HIS money as he sees fit. The difference between the Romney´s and the 0bama´s is that the 0bama´s spend the taxpayer money. A million dollar golf outing for 0bama with Tiger Woods, a Hundred Million Dollars for the 0bamas and their friends to go to Africa. 0bama has a 64 car motorcade which includes seven limousines which he must have everywhere he travels, and it is all funded by the taxpayer. Let´s just get things into perspective.

Wood is nice, but there is a limit! Gov. Romney nice home. Roomy. Sorry it couldn´t have worked out a bit differently last year. The country would have been better off IMHO. Good days ahead and if you´ve any extra cash, you might want to hide it before the feds come to confiscate. Congrats on your new grandson.

The car elevator in LaJolla made a lot of sense and he could afford it. Those who know the building site know what I´m talking about.

He is welcome to spend the money he has earned on anything he wishes. It is always something that benefits his wife and extended family.

The snarky Mail writer is salivating over the house´s being situated so that one can ski right in. This is not at all unusual in ski resorts in Colorado and Utah where condos and private homes are situated along the ski runs so that one can access the runs without using a motor vehicle. When we used to ski Snowmass at Christmas we made a point of renting a run-side condo.

Little Joshua should go and write another report on Miley Cyrus or Madonna´s rape...

And, #6, add to that the fact that unlike Al Gore, he´s not haranguing the rest of us to live in studio apartments and get around by foot or bicycle while he himself owns a 40,000 sq. foot house in Tennessee and a 10,000 sq. foot condo in D.C. while getting around on private jets and a fleet of SUVs.

I didn´t not pay for that chalet out of my taxes. He is not flying there via a conveyance my taxes pay for.

If I click on this link and look at it, it will be because I wish to see pictures of a gorgeous chalet in a gorgeous state. Period.

I do judge people like Soros and Buffet who use their wealth to buy legislation and influence politics in ways that clearly benefit them individually. I haven´t seen that with Romney so far, although I don´t love the man, I don´t care how wealthy his is.

Romney has a lot of stuff and he paid for it with his own money.

Obama has two 747`s, 3 helicopters, a huge white house, an armored limousine, many servants, cooks, cleaners, free world wide telecommunications and free food. He didn`t pay for any of it.

As others have said, it´s Romney´s money and he can do whatever he wants with it. In addition to that, he has also provided jobs for the many people who have worked on his houses.

California Unemployment Holds
Steady at Dismal 8.1%
Breitbart California, by William Bigelow    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 4/20/2014 5:14:55 AM     Post Reply
California’s unemployment rate is rotten and holding steady. In March, according to the Los Angeles Times, the rate was 8.1%. In February, it was exactly the same. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that the state only added 11,800 net new jobs in March, many of them in construction, government, education, and health services. The greatest gains were in professional and business services, with 3,100 new positions. But the jobs numbers in hospitality, manufacturing, and leisure dipped, and the biggest drop came in financial activities, as the slowing rate of mortgages forced banks to fire employees.

SCARBOROUGH, Maine- John C. Houbolt, an engineer whose contributions to the U.S. space program were vital to NASA´s successful moon landing in 1969, has died. He was 95. Houbolt died Tuesday at a nursing home in Scarborough, Maine, of complications from Parkinson´s disease, his son-in-law Tucker Withington, of Plymouth, Mass., confirmed Saturday. As NASA describes on its website, while under pressure during the U.S.-Soviet space race, Houbolt was the catalyst in securing U.S. commitment to the science and engineering theory that eventually carried the Apollo crew to the moon and back safely. His efforts in the early 1960s are largely

Democrats have a problem and everyone knows it. President Obama calls it a “congenital disease.” If they can’t control it, Obama could spend the final years of his presidency battling not only a Republican House but also a Republican Senate. Democrats don’t vote in midterm elections. That’s an exaggeration, of course, but the core of the Democratic coalition is made up of many people who turn out to vote only in presidential elections. The Republican coalition — older and whiter — suffers less from midterm falloff.So much has been made of the building blocks the president assembled to win his

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority.

Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police?

Conservative columnist Ann Coulter — who used her talk show platform in the last presidential election cycle to campaign hard for former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney — has taken up the mantra once again, calling on Republicans to give the failed White House bidder another shot in 2016. She made the suggestion during a discussion on Sean Hannity’s radio show while speaking of her new book, “Never Trust a Liberal Over 3-Especially a Republican.” Ms. Coulter also addressed the question of Mr. Romney’s shortcomings by saying that his 2012 loss wasn’t entirely his fault. “I think too much blame, not only in this

Prominent Washington correspondents are accusing President Obama and his aides of knowingly stretching the truth on issues like the so-called women´s pay gap just to create controversy and keep issues -- and the president -- relevant. Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus kicked off the attack last week when she blasted as “demagoguery” the administration´s tactics during the pay gap debate. “The level of hyperbole -- actually, of demagoguery -- that Democrats have engaged in here is revolting,” she wrote. CBS White House Correspondent Major Garrett then weighed in this week in his National Journal
