it's true that Scandinavia is the most civilized area of the world.

"Hi, Mr. Protestor."
"Hi. Mr. Police Chief."
"Listen, we're a little short this month and we can't afford to bring tear gas and rubber bullets for Bush's visit next week."
"Aww... OK, tell you what, I'll talk to the guys. Maybe we can leave the rocks and Molotov cocktails at home this time."
"You're all heart, man."
"Hey, no problem. Say hi to the wife and kids, all right? See you at the protest!"

Protestors have too much damn time on their hands, I mean hell wouldn't the world be a better place if all anyone did was fark?
 
2003-04-28 04:16:01 PM  
What is this world coming to when you can't even have a decent riot without budget cuts!
 
2003-04-28 04:17:43 PM  
I hope the polarbears get him.
 
2003-04-28 04:18:43 PM  
Damn, I sure miss having a Prez that was actually liked around the world!
Shrub needs super-duper protection even in his own country. (you notice he only appears at military bases?)let alone overseas.


-Depressing.

If nothing was protested, I wouldn't know what I should support!

Oslo takes out ad: Please do not blow up Mr. Bush.

So, Norwegians aren't a bunch of asshats who like to marginalize people whom they disagree with, and try to be respectful with their dissidence. This deserves a "spiffy" tag, and frankly, America needs to be more like Scandinavia in general.
 
2003-04-28 04:20:14 PM  
Here is a new Olso Peace Accord. How about save the budget and give the police the day off... let Bush fend for himself as the protestors 'liberate' his backside.

Maybe if Bush wasn't such a douchebag, there wouldn't be so much protestin' goin' on. Who knows?
 
2003-04-28 04:20:30 PM  
What with 50% taxation and no real standing military?
 
2003-04-28 04:21:01 PM  
The head of the police officers' association, Arne Joergen Olafsen, told radio station P4 on Monday that he's upset no extra funding has come through, just weeks before the prospective visit.


Uh oh. GWB had better watch out. They usually refer to assasins by all three names. Mark David Chapman, Lee Harvey Oswald, John Wilkes Booth, James Earl Ray. You catch my drift. I gotta go watch "Conspiracy Theory" again.

Hey, aren't the Norwegians rich like Nazis since they started pumping all that North Sea oil? why are they biatching?

"Bush visit threatens police budgets."
Protesters: "In order for us to cooperate with you on the presidents' visit, you most bring us...a Shrubbery !"

I'd make a comment about how the police should just stay home and let the protestors kill Bush, but if that happened then Cheney would be President.

Bush sucks, but I don't want a evil robot as President either.
 
2003-04-28 04:25:01 PM  
why would norway need a standing army? Who's going to invade the fjords?! Plus, they all have viking bloodlines... they can just build longboats and go medieval on your ass...
 
2003-04-28 04:26:49 PM  
CatchrNdRy: when was the last time someone flew a plane into a Norwegian building? Do Norwegians pose as Danes or Swedes when they go abroad? I'd say maybe we should definately look at a few aspects of their society and adapt them to our own... well, I'm not so cool with the 50% income tax rate (though I'm sure it's not that bad, and you were going for the hyperbole... too lazy to look it up).
 
2003-04-28 04:27:27 PM  
WELL DUH

they don't want him there he should get the point
 
2003-04-28 04:27:37 PM  
I strongly doubt anyone is going to take a crack at Bush. Honestly.

But, if you're in Norway, and thinking about it, please don't. I'd rather have an idiot in office than a psycho.
 
2003-04-28 04:27:53 PM  
Johnnyactionfngr: so I can't count on your vote when I make my bid for the Presidency, eh?
 
2003-04-28 04:28:18 PM  
What if they gave a protest and nobody showed up?

On the other hand, most Norske speak English better than Bush, so he might gain an education.
 
2003-04-28 04:29:12 PM  
And to correct my pervious post, "an evil robot"

err.. maybe they need the french to defend them?

Haha, don't kid yourself as to who's actually in charge! They put W out in front 'cause he's 'expendable'. Cheney's the one they tuck away in an 'undisclosed location' for safekeeping.

Wow. You know not even in my complete distaste for the previous administration, did i do something so distasteful as to endorse his assassination.

Really speaks to your calibur as a person, Johnny, let alone the sophistication of your poltical views.

Albo: Are Nazis rich? We`re stinking, filthy rich. But not Nazis.

The reason the police biatch about this, is because they see it as an opportunity to get some extra money. They would manage, but could manage _even better_ with a couple of millions or ten in extra funding.

Cheney's ticker is totally defective. If Bush were torn apart by the protestors (God forbid *snicker*), then Cheney had his fifth and final heart attack (God forbid *snicker*). Isn't it the House Majority Leader that stands next? Oh, Sh*t! It's another damned Texan, Tom Delay... *SIGH*, they're like cockroaches!

2003-04-28 04:51:46 PM  
This liberal hate-filled hoping-for-violence rant brought to you by the Democratic Party... the Party of Tolerance!

As for the clueless protestors... I say, let' em crash!
 
2003-04-28 04:54:12 PM  
Damn, I sure miss having a Prez that was actually liked around the world!


When was that? I suspect you mean Clinton but he wasn't liked in Europe either. There just werent as many international threats that brought it up in the media. And I know you couldn't have meant Bush Sr, Reagan, or Carter etc...Never mind, you probably weren't interested in fact or logic, just making fun of Bush, please continue.

I'm on to you too. If you were able to determine my calibur as a person and the sophistication of my political views just from reading one tongue-in-cheek post from me on FARK you must be a robot.
 
2003-04-28 05:08:11 PM  
This really isn't funny. The irrational hatred on the left for President Bush has reached a point where an assassination attempt is not far-fetched. Witness the recent assassination in the Netherlands of conservative Pim Fortuyn. And Scandanavia is not immune to assassination either...Swedish prime minister Olaf Palme was shot dead in 1986.

And the barely concealed wish for it to happen to President Bush (here on Fark and elsewhere) is a real laugh riot. Idiots.
 
2003-04-28 05:08:18 PM  
You guys know Norway has oil.

Bush is probably just planning on stealing it, like we did in Iraq. Check his bags on the way out. He could have all of Norway's oil in there.

The preceding was, in fact, sarcastic.

"When was that? I suspect you mean Clinton but he wasn't liked in Europe either. "

He was liked a hell of a lot more than Shrub! When he went over there he was (and is) treated like a rock star. I've seen him happily wade into crowds of well-wishers on the street, something Shrub wouldn't dream of doing. Even when he was invited to N. Ireland after he left office he was mobbed. So don't tell me about facts, Shrub is the most reviled and detested President among the common people, and leadership (anybody ever call Clinton a moron?)in MANY a year. It's stupid to pretend otherwise.

It goes without saying that most rock stars are idiots.

So don't tell me about facts,

Because facts, you know, just scare and confuse liberals.

Shrub is the most reviled and detested President among the common people

Funny. His approval rates with the "common people" are going through the roof.

It's stupid to pretend otherwise.

Well, how do you explain his popularity... oh, yeah, that's right. Sorry. I'll stop bringing up those pesky facts.
