Of course Prissypants McKilljoy HUSSEIN Shamalamadingdong Fartbongo S. Preston, Esquire the Third won't ride Bumper Cars... he thinks he's too good.

I mean, the "man" insists on using a knife and fork to eat a pork chop instead of just ripping it apart with his bare hands like a REAL AMERICAN©™ would!

He waves from the podium and shakes hands on the "rope line," but his words come primarily from the text on his TelePrompter.

The economy in Iowa is rougher now and even the weather is worse in the drought-hit state.

If only he'd use that weather machine to bring some rain.

Fair officials said that four years ago, Obama promised he would be the greatest bumpercar driver ever. He then immediately drove his bumpercar into a ditch and started complaining about the previous driver.

They are a good and noble people.

However it would be nice for the primaries to start in different states. Set up a rotation or something. Iowa has way too much say currently.

His head might snap back and to the left, back and to the left, back and to the left, when a teenaged girl slams into his bumper car.

Given the rates people are fainting while in Obama's presence, it just poses too much risk for accidents and the carnies who run the fair probably only carry the minimum amount of insurance.

You know that carnival that comes to town every year?
Well this year it came with a ride called the Mixer.
The man said "Keep your head and arms inside the mixer at all times." But President Obama, he was a
daredevil, just like his old man. He was leaning out saying, "Hey
everybody! Look at me, look at me!" POW! He was decapitated. They found
his head over by the snowcone concession.

No wait, that's Australia. Singapore paddles your ass.

It's not so much a totalitarian dictatorship or Nanny State as a whole country run by an HOA.

Anybody ever watch Tripping the Riff, a SF comedy CGI cartoon that is slightly naughty and topical? They did an episode where Chode is sentenced to death for littering.  The connection between the HOA Fascist mentality and that case of the American kid who threw some gum on the sidewalk was made clearly.

On a serious note, what is the president doing riding around in bumper cars when the economy is so screwed up, anyway? Was he not elected to fix problems instead of goofing around? I am certain that the traffic problems and fair congestion and the several hundred feet and cavity search pat downs necessary to keep his safety would actually NEGATIVELY impact the grosses at the fair. I did not even go to my state fair this year because the highway had too much traffic. Carnies lost all the money I would have spent because the roadways are clogged.

Guess what, Obama? I did not build that. Yeah. You get a cookie, slick. Are you really that disappointed that you do not get to ruin countless state fair outings because you want to ride the bumper cars like a normal person and not the most powerful man on earth like you campaigned endlessly to be?

If I had built the roads, you can be sure no one would have to give up on going to the state fair because of traffic.

Still don't care for B-rock the Islamic Shock (thanks ChipNASA !) though. People trash Romney for being rich. Barry ain't poor by any means. He's out schmoozing.

If you look back and take the blinders off, I'd bet you'd see that there wasn't a huge amount of respect at the outset. Go back and look at political ads from the 1800s. They regularly mocked political figures. I think there was an uptick in the "respect" after WWII, but that's been slowly declining over the years. Reagan was given some level of respect, but I do believe Clinton started referring to Bush I as Mr Bush during the debates - a not so subtle trick on his part, but it serves as evidence of the decline. Sure, it's gotten worse over the years - but Bush II was given damned near no respect, so I'm not sure what was good for the goose shouldn't be good for the gander.

WTF.

I don't agree with a lot of Obama's policies, but I respect the man and much of what he's accomplished over the course of his life. I'd be asking for a damn photo for Christ's sake.

I despise Rush Limbaugh, and if I happened to know he was in the area, I wouldn't make it a point to be close by. But if by some unlucky twist of fate, I happened to be stuck in the position of being already on his radar for a greeting/handshake, I'd smile politely and comply. BECAUSE I'M NOT A COMPLETE BIATCH THAT HAS TO AGREE WITH SOMEONE'S POINT OF VIEW BEFORE I ALLOW THEM THE PRIVILEGE OF SHAKING MY GODDAMNED HAND.

/Don't give a shiat about the bumper cars. The guy could easily request a private session at a facility.
 
2012-08-17 01:13:10 PM
The Secret Service is being over-cautious because they know, like the rest of us, that the first term doesn't really count. The President only gets to go shiat-wild when he isn't running for re-election.

Any hoo, have you ever noticed how black Presidents drive like this, all laid-back and cool, taking it slow because they see him driving and they be hatin' while white Presidents drive like this, all tight-assed, and drunk and as if they owned the road until they end up in the dtich and their police escort has to shoot all the witnesses*?

*Applies only to:
William Clinton
George W. Bush, Jr.
George H. W. Bush, Sr.

(Reagan was too Hollywood to drive himself. Carter was a safe and responsible driver and a good citizen. Nixon was such a menace on wheels that Pat usually drove. Ford was a klutz but not a particularlly bad driver but Mrs. Ford was another matter altogether. (WARNING: I am making this up.))

You win an afternoon hanging out with Obama:

Grab some burgers for lunch with some light beer.... talk about sports, kids, travel, movies.... random chit-chat. Meet Michelle and the kids briefly. End the day with a photo op, an autographed photo and a hearty handshake.

You win an afternoon hanging out with Romney:

You are informed that "things have come up" and Romney is not available after all. It will not be rescheduled. You're handed a stock photo of Romney along with a bumpersticker. His minion pays your lunch tab. You drive yourself home.

News:

Mitt Romney calls Vlad a threat to world security.
Mitt Romney says it is disgusting that Vlad is TIME's Person of the Year.
Mitt Romney thinks Russia is faltering under Vlad.

Fark:
If Mitt Romney becomes President, Vlad gets to retort.

I take comfort where I can. I will start giggling now in preparation for the schadenfreude if Mitt is elected by some chance or the malice money of mega-millionaires.

I like Vlad.

Vlad may be a funny little stinker but he reminds me of some of my favourite funny little stinkers from history: Pierre Elliott Trudeau, Julius G. Caesar, Napoleon I, and The Candyman*

*NOT Adolph Hitler. He was a little stinker but a bore.

Just let me add that in my opinon even a self-made man like former KGB head, Vlad Putin, is better than a second generation shiat like Mitt Romney or Tom Wolfe or Pat Buchanan or I'm-the-Voice-of-God-and-Yale William F. Buckley, Jr. Self-made men often skimp on workmanship and materials, but Second Generationers are often brats, fools and entitled upper class twits.

In fact, almost any Junior is likely to be a bit farked-up. Except for that delightful Ronald Reagan, Jr., of course. He's not so much Second Generation as God's Revenge.

Scorched Earth tour continues: Mitt to twit Putin
KRISTEN A. LEE, CORKY SIEMASZKO
Monday, July 30, 2012
He's angered the Brits, infuriated the Palestinians, and now he's going after the Russians.

Globe-trotting GOP presidential hopeful Mitt Romney was expected Tuesday to deliver a Cold War-type smackdown of the Russkies - and, by extension, President Obama - with a "value of liberty" speech at Warsaw University.

Romney is expected to attack Russian leader Vladimir Putin for rolling back Democratic reforms - and delicately suggest that Obama is leaving a key ally like Poland in the lurch, though the U.S. is rolling out a permanent military detachment in Poland.

The above paragraphs are NOT FROM THE ONION. They are from the New York Daily News, a much funnier publication. Continue reading here: http://articles.nydailynews.com/2012-07-30/news/32946267_1_romney-camp aign-mitt-romney-solidarity

I am paying higher taxes on some of my income than Mitt Romney.

Although there is zero tax on income from 0 to $10,000, after application of the personal deduction of $10,000 and only 15% on the $42,720 plus.

Yes, if an over-taxed Canadian makes less than $42,720, they MAY be paying less than a millionaire or billionaire in income tax.

True, as a Canadian one expects to pay more for everything. In fact, I am a Canadian and don't mind paying a bit more provided the money I pay is spent on good things, such as bringing the chassis of society up off of the pavement. What I mind is doing my own taxes, but I could easily pay an out-of-work person of moderate intelligence a couple of days training to do it for me--my tax forms are relatively easy and simple to complete.

But sadly, even Americans much, much poorer than I am, with a spouse and children to support, are paying more in both absolute and relative terms, just in income tax, even if you don't count payroll taxes that pay for social security, welfare, and health care transfers. Even if you don't count the regressive nature of almost all taxes at almost all levels.

Fact is, the rich stopped pulling their weight long ago, thanks to Reagan and California Republicanism (screw the country, I made it semi-legally, I'll keep it semi-legally).

They shouldn't be whining about high taxes as they don't have any. They shouldn't be whining about tax cheats and those who pay no income taxes because they have little or no income, because they are tax cheats and pay little or no income taxes compared to the broad backs of the working poor, the working middle classes, and even welfare queens, who are harder hit relatively by sales tax and excise taxes and every other tax.

Even property taxes hit the poor and middle classes harder than they hit the rich because palatial homes still make up a tiny part of the wealth of the real rich, the real upper classes, the super-rich who are richer even than the real upper classes.

Property taxes are regressive taxes by the definition used by economists. Income taxes are worse. Sales taxes worse still. Excise taxes are the most regressive of all, although you can easily avoid them by being a teetotaling non-smoker and wrapping your halo (aureolus) around your throat so you don't eat any imported cheese or other "luxeries" of the middle classes.

Mitt has admitted that he has paid less than 16% taxes on his great income over more than ten years. That's a lot like Bush's claim that he could have passed a security clearance when his father was President.

What Bush isn't telling us was when he could have passed the clearance and what clearance he could have passed. He never even denied doing coke. He just said he could pass the rather loose test of not doing coke at some point in time during his Father's presidency. Apparently there was a period during 1988 to 1994 that he could have peeed in a cup without cocaine residue in his urine. That's all he ever told us about his drug abuse history.

And all Mitt is telling us is that he paid some paltry percentage of income tax, less than a Canadian earning between 0 and $15,000 pays perhaps, perhaps not. It's hard to say if he won't let anybody near the paperwork, isn't it?

Dear Mr. President: if a reporter asks you whether you ever did coke, the correct answer is "No. I never have." It is NOT years of evasion and somewhat revealing equivocation.

Clinton's "I never inhaled", was a model of accuracy and forth-rightness compared to what any Republican politician can safely say.

These are the people who came up with "Just say "No"." They pointedly did not come up with "No means No."

Regardless of what he has turned it into, running the country is not supposed to resemble a demolition derby. But I can't think of anyone who could so thoroughly trash an economy as Obama has so he probably doesn't have a worthy competitor in that regard. Even his "successes" are bad. And never mind the green energy throwaways. Read the latest GM financial reports and the latest auto industry reports.

The major problem - one of the major problems, for there are several - one of the many major problems with governing people is that of whom you get to do it; or rather of who manages to get people to let them do it to them.

To summarize: it is a well known fact, that those people who most want to rule people are, ipso facto, those least suited to do it. To summarize the summary: anyone who is capable of getting themselves made President should on no account be allowed to do the job. To summarize the summary of the summary: people are a problem.

And so this is the situation we find: a succession of Galactic Presidents who so much enjoy the fun and palaver of being in power that they very rarely notice that they're not.

Of any president in the last sixty years, had I the opportunity to shake their hand, George W. Bush is the only one I would handily refuse. Every other sitting president in that time frame had at least one achievement of merit to their presidential record that would justify it. Bush's presidency is such a black stain on the nation's history that it doesn't even warrant the justification of a friendly handshake.

Launch Code: ReverendJynxed: To be fair, he has much more important shiat to take care of right now than getting his bumper car on.

Sure does, the same thing he's been focusing on for the past 3 years, HIS reelection.


...but let's not forget presidents can work while on vacation, the presidency is a really hard job and you need time off now and again, and how dare you question that.

Or does is that only a viable counterargument when said president is off in Butthole, Texas playing with his pet dog, dodging phone calls from his Director of Central Intelligence, while a brief titled "Bin Laden Determined to Strike Inside US" sits on his desk?

tillerman35:

I think it would have had much more effect if he had extended his hand and then pulled it away at the last minute, smoothed his hair back, and then sauntered away coolly while flipping the bird at Obama without even looking back.


I wonder what he'd do; you know he has a plan for that.

angry_scientist: brap: I can tell you one thing having grown up in Iowa, Iowans would elect beer to the White House if it could.

Damn right. Behind every hard worker, every farmer, any project that needs doing, any normal married man- is a shiatload of beer. We don't drink just to socialize, not often anyways. We drink to get shiat done. We get shiat done to drink.

/Vote angry, for President of Iowa
//And I approve this message


I can verify this. Standard fare for any favor is paid in beer.

LordJiro: AngryTeacher: Not everyone in Iowa was enthusiastic about Obama's presence. One of the first men whose hand Obama tried to shake at the fair told him "No, thank you," and turned away, scowling as the president made his way down the street.

Remember when W. was president and we were told to respect the office? What is different about Obama? There must be something that makes him different than all the previous presidents because the old rules have suddenly changed.

I just can't put my finger on it.

No, Republicans disrespected the office when Clinton was president, too. You only respect the office if a Republican is President.


And, only when the Republican president declares "mission accomplished"!

I'm with Mr. Teacher. Looking back, Republican disrespect during the Clinton years was damn near cute in comparison.


So damn cute the republicants squandered $44 million to impeach the Big Dog for fibbing about a little oral action. Just think how that cash could have improved Pontius Pilates commute to the state fair!
