Silly Jesus: Anyone with extra money sitting around that they could donate to charity should do so or else they are an asshole. Amidoinitright?


No, because that is a tenet of Muslim faith. Americans would never do that.

Bloody William: Lsherm: Oh, Donald Trump is a royal asshole. It's just your own frame of reference for suffering sounded, uh, a little too New York. Not quite at the level of complaining that the maid can't come over because the subway is closed, but close.

I'm sorry, I was just using the reference I had now. I can't really speak for Baltimore residents or New Jersey residents and what they're going through. Frankly, I'm amazed the power is still on. But it's more than "the subway is closed." Emergency orders to stay inside, flooding at the Battery is at least a foot over the recorded record... it's pretty amazing. Personally, at this moment, it's not too bad besides the whole "stay inside or you might die" thing. I'm just not expecting it to stay that way, based on the warnings.


My wife's in NY near Gramercy Park for work. She says it's awful, but manageable. She said the worst part so far has been hearing glass panels that are falling off the buildings hitting the street. Still, she's on the seventh floor of a building and hasn't been too put out, nor will she be if the power goes out. She can manage because our house in VA has been through this several times in the last decade and week long power outages and flooding are the norm.

I'm sure it's scary, but unless you're carrying cats on your shoulder and putting important paperwork into a waterproof container - you'll survive. I don't imagine NY would be without power for more than a day, tops. You guys also have the benefit of gravity fed water in a lot of your domiciles, so you luck out there, too.

Here's to hoping you aren't in a basement apartment :)

jake_lex: Holy shiat, I pulled up that asshat's Twitter profile, and it's basically one cheap shot insult after another at people who have criticized him.

I guess since his company got booted out of Trump Tower, he's got plenty of time to Twitter.

I'm sure by now Romney is itching to tell Trump to go fark himself but the problem is Trump is such a reckless bomb thrower, he would turn on Romney in an instant and cause him more problems than it is worth.

Here's an idea, Trump: you've got $5 million of dick-waving money laying around and your own hometown is turning into a Ski-Doo ad. Look out the goddamned window and you can see where you can put your $5 million of dick-waving money.

You are paraphrasing the mythical Jesus well.

Then Jesus beholding him loved him, and said unto him, One thing thou lackest: go thy way, sell whatsoever thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, take up the cross, and follow me.
And he was sad at that saying, and went away grieved: for he had great possessions.
And Jesus looked round about, and saith unto his disciples, How hardly shall they that have riches enter into the kingdom of God!
And the disciples were astonished at his words. But Jesus answereth again, and saith unto them, Children, how hard is it for them that trust in riches to enter into the kingdom of God!
It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.

Romney's response while at a rally in Ohio

We're counting on Ohio. I know the people of the Atlantic Coast are counting on Ohio and the rest of our states, but I also think the people of the entire nation are counting on Ohio. Because my guess is - my guess is that if Ohio votes me in as president, I'll be the next president of the United States.


"Ohio is important because I need to be President! Oh and some hurricane or something. Whatever."
 
2012-10-29 11:56:06 PM  
First of all, to all of those that posted those super cool spaceships. One problem: Spaceships do not bank in space.

Anyways, back on topic. I find it funny how this thing rolls around and Obama is like, "BRB Mitt, i have to go do adult things. Dont try to mess anything up while i'm gone please and maybe try and lend a hand if you want."

And Romney is like, "Hmmm...how can i help? OH I KNOW. I'll send my campaign bus and do the exact opposite of what the Red Cross asks of citizens wanting to help. I just single handly showed the country how i have no idea how important organizations like the Red Cross operates, nor do i know an effective means of sending help. It's a good thing the MSM LAMESTEAM MEDIA wont report on it. :)"

I would guarantee that Donald Trump didn't make that promise without someone else's 5 million dollars in the bank first. It's the principle the whole northeast business sector is based on.

2012-10-30 12:04:21 AM  
I don't blame Trump. You are what you are, and apparently he's an arrogant, delusional idiot.

I blame the people who enabled him. He should have disappeared in the 80s, after his business empire turned to shiat and the banks realized that they'd lent countless millions to a hack. Instead he somehow clawed his way back up, no doubt because some asshole still believed there was juice in the Trump brand of balls-out stupidity. And then some evil genius at NBC gave him a reality show.

So the next time you see someone talk about buying a condo in a Trump Tower or in any way referring to The Apprentice or its spinoffs with anything but scorn, punch him directly in the cock.

Dave Letterman @Late_Show said during my interview that Obama was "probably" born in the US--the word "probably" is a disaster for Obama.

Of course not. There's no reason to give your money to anyone at all. I mean, sure, it makes you look like an egotistical attention whore by saying "Hey, Prez! Maybe you should stop coordinating federal aid to hurricane victims to LOOK AT ME!", but you don't have to give any money to anyone at all.

I often get yelled at for this, but I really enjoyed flying the Y-Wing. Yeah, the speed and maneuverability weren't the greatest, but it made up for it with firepower and durability. Often opponents in the "better" craft would get suckered into close range dogfights with me, giving up much of their advantage. I also got very good at getting shields down on A-wings and then switching too and hitting them with cross-linked ions.

Really, the Y-wing was under-appreciated by many.

He was ready to do it for entirely AWing purposes. Why not donate it for actual humanitarian purposes? Sure, there's no obligation to, but he looks like a worthless human being if he doesn't


I hate to be the guy to have to point this out, but the whole reason Trump issued that "challenge" to President Obama was to distract from the news that Trump was being fired by Trump Place. The entire thing was one calculated move to distract from that fact, so he could keep his undeserved reputation as a business person. The fact is the only thing Trump is good at is self-promotion, not business, as this whole affair proves.

He wanted to distract attention away from that news and he did. The sickest part about his plan is that it seems to have largely worked.
