The Telegraph

The US President’s 13-year-old daughter Malia is staying at a downtown hotel in the city famous for its colonial architecture and well-preserved native American traditions, an official said.

“We are here to block access to the hotel by other people and escort the vehicles that are carrying the visitors to tourism sites,” the police official told AFP under the condition of anonymity.

Malia Obama and her friend are guarded by the Secret Service agents as well as Mexican police, the official noted.

The group, which arrived in Oaxaca Saturday, has already visited the architectural zone of Mitla and the tree of El Tule believed to be one thousand years old.

    The personal excesses of these Jeffersons know no bounds.

    How many 13 year olds do you know that go to Mexico with 12 of their friends?

    No mention of the cost to taxpayers.

    After what Obama and Holder have done with

    I seem to remember back in a previous life that Oaxacan Buds was pretty kick-ass weed. I’m sure Barry has an order in with one of the SS agents for an lb or two.

    SPring break for a 13-year old?!?!? Give me a f-in break! This is outrageous. I wouldn’t let my daughter go to NEW JERSEY unchaperoned until she was 18 much less Mexico.

    The question is would these two miserable excuses for parents allow this trip to occur if they were not provided secret service protection? If yes, they are truly stupid. If no, ask why not.

    The answer is pretty obvious. But, hey….they are entitled. Just gettin’ what is owed them by us racist crackers.

    Did they use a private jet or Airforce 2? Not likely that they flew commercial. And don’t forget the cost of all the armored cars and the secret service equipment and personnel. As a tax payer I want to see how much I was fleeced for this time.

    You know that old Carlin routine about the 7 words you can never say on television? I recited that list – TWICE! – while reading this story.

    And then I thought: “the thirteen year old Obama girl”. Huh. Barry’s in Mexico spring breaking, eh? A little trick I do to keep my bp down so I don’t look like one of those old cartoon lunch whistles going off.

    I don’t care how much security she’s got; a 13-year-old going on spring break vacation–in Mexico, which we plebeian tourists are being warned away from–without either parent just has “weird” written all over it.

    Can Things Get Any Worse for Teens in America?

    Can things get any worse for teens in America?

    Sure they can. Just give it time.

    Life in these United States has gotten far more complex–and disturbing–since the days of my youth in the 1950′s when most Americans liked Ike, we enjoyed relative peace, homosexuals were considered weirdos, the concept of global warming was as global cooling, and young girls were considered “loose” if they engaged in heavy “petting.”

    There were racial agitators and other extremists in our midst back then, the USSR was constantly threatening to somehow bury us, and Communists had infiltrated our government but nothing so altered moral behavior as Bill Clinton’s attitude toward sexual mores and conduct.

    Loose-girl petting as a social issue long preceded a president who didn’t believe oral sex constituted sex at all and thereby effectively authorized the practice as a favorite indoor–and outdoor–sport for sexually-active teens.

    If the president of the United States believed oral sex wasn’t sex, what could be wrong with it?

    One of the most marked changes over the past decade has been the evolution in America–more properly, the devolution–of teenage girls with regard to “non-sex” and “real sex.” Another has been teens feeling free to voice their often un-PC opinions on controversial issues for all the world to see.

    Those changes have been facilitated by social media websites such as Facebook and on YouTube which have enabled teens to express themselves, often inappropriately; the internet, texting, and sexting have enabled kids to pretend act like licentious adults at the same time it has enabled pedophiles to prey on them, as seen on such television shows as NBC’s “To Catch a Predator.”

    Sometimes, too often, young girls have used their new-found outlet for self-expression have taken ugly turns.

    For example, two articulate kids at Gainesville High School in Florida saw fit to post a 14-minute racially-charged video on YouTube in which they voiced reprehensible views about African-Americans at their school.

    Regardless of the unvarnished truth in the obscenity-laden video–saying such things as many blacks were food stamp recipients, were on welfare yet dressed in designer clothing, and didn’t speak ”normal” English–they were expelled, one permanently, the other placed on probation. They also spoke highly of hard-working blacks and they and their families issued profuse apologies, but that didn’t matter.

    The two had commited a grievous, politically-incorrect offense by speaking their minds and thinking the First Amendment’s guarantee of freedom of speech was still in effect. As a result, they and their families have been harassed and threatened and the girls have had to go into hiding because of what was essentially a teenage indiscretion.

    The question arises as to which was worse, the indiscreet video or the threats of physical harm and intimidation they were subjected to. Evidently, in the eyes of Gainesville High School administrators, it was the former.

    So, too, did a similar racist video posted by two girls at Santaluces High School in Palm Beach County cause an uproar.

    Among other negative comments about African-Americans at their school, one girl said, “It’s kinda sad cause like, I don’t like black people. They’re annoying. They stink. They’re ugly.” The other rejoined, “Some are nice. They’re pretty. Look at Tyra Banks!”

    It’s very apparent that those four teens aren’t alone in their views rejecting contemporary political correctness and PC’s doctrines of diversity and inclusion. It’s also apparent that they are being subjected to concerted pressures to compromise their beliefs.

    Life is much more challenging for teenagers than in the relatively-good old days. Primary challenges are resisting peer pressures, the importunings of their throbbing hormones, and the untold numbers of pedophiles eager to take advantage of them. . .

    Seems like 25 guards for 13 girls is not shit for protection. Seems like a really pissed off Cartel that saw a lot of the damage from the ones supplied by us might have thousands of peeps in the direct vicinity to call from. I wouldn’t let my kid got to mexico PERIOD & I wasnt complicit in killing a bunch of drug runners. Doesn’t make sense. Could be very interesting. She must be the “Meg” of the WH.

    Millions of Americans have lost their jobs and their homes and the Obama’s send a 13 year old and 12 friends on a trip to Mexico. How much is the tax payer getting hit for this?

    Enough is enough. These people need to go away.
