What the f*ck is this guy wearing?

He looks like he should be carrying an hors d'oeuvre tray on another planet. He looks like he's an Elder in a race of futuristic caterers.

Yes, telling a segment of Americans that they don't matter is winning strategy.  That's why Ann's now hanging curtains in the First Family's residential quarters.

Keep it up, farkwad.

Whoa, no one said that.  Remember, accusing people of being racist is the new racism.

Lionel Mandrake: How the fark does a person this farking stupid get so rich?


He came by it honestly. First in his family to graduate college, was HS valedictorian, and built his own business. So, not stupid in the financial sense and probably a hard working guy at one point in his life.

But... like many people featured on FARK, he's got a social mental block. He's hyper-religious and super conservative (hence his support of Santorum). Views everything from that perspective. Have to admit he's not very hypocritical - he seems to live the life he advocates.

That said, he's an idiot when it comes to "appropriate things to say in public". Like many people who are CEO's or in major leadership positions, he's probably so used to having everything he says being reacted to as though he's God, he forgets that great swaths of people don't want to listen to him, or agree with him. I'm sure he's got a nice contingent of yes-people surrounding him that allow him to live in a bubble of his own superiority.

Maybe he should try holding that aspirin between his lips.

Kimothy: Lionel Mandrake: How the fark does a person this farking stupid get so rich?

He came by it honestly

...etc.

I know he didn't inherit wealth and then increase it, like so many other loudmouth conservative douchebags.  I just find it amazing that someone can be so thoroughly versed in something like business, and so utterly out of touch and idiotic on another.

I know that a person's intellect, talent, etc. can be "compartmentalized" or strong in one area and weak in another, it just floors me to see it in such extremes.

He must be one of those missionary-only types.
 
2013-01-31 03:26:27 PM  
So is he saying inner city voters should by discounted, like to maybe 3/5 of a vote?
 
2013-01-31 03:26:32 PM  
If you don't count the votes from non-Christians, non-whites, homosexuals, people who live on the west coast, people in the northeast, people in large cities, people with an "x" or a "z" in their last name and anyone less than 2nd generation citizen then it's clear that the Republicans won the election handily.

Duh.  How come you stupid libs can't see something so obvious.
 
2013-01-31 03:27:02 PM  
Friess went on to say that there is a lack of entrepreneurship in "these center cities."

Yeah, it's not like most Fortune 500 companies base themselves in these center cities or anything.

Hell, even New Orleans is being profiled this week because it's become a hotbed for entrepreneurs.

What a dipshiat!
 
2013-01-31 03:27:44 PM  
lol fark his opinion
 
2013-01-31 03:29:00 PM  
So...  He's saying central city votes should be discounted?  Like maybe 40%?

We don't necessarily have to make them fight to the death.

And they didn't go around being raped all the time.

Happy to hear he'll lose more of his fortune supporting losing candidates and a losing ideology. Keep up the good work!
 
2013-01-31 03:31:00 PM  
I wonder if  Friess is just mad that his opinion doesn't matter?

Or it could be that he's mad that he wasted a pile of money loser candidates...

Either way,Friess doesn't matter.

Lionel Mandrake: How the fark does a person this farking stupid get so rich?


From my own personal observations and anecdotes, when it comes to the inherent talents necessary needed to become rich, intelligence is pretty far down the list.   Definitely behind raw ambition and charisma.  Of course, pre-established connections helps a great farking deal.

I say we keep feeding him "contraception" until he bleeds out his eyes.

Only then will he know what it's like to listen to him as though his political opinion has value.

You city folk don't understand capitalism.  Which is why I only trade bait and tackle startups listed on the Greenville Stock Exchange.

Okay pal, cities don't understand entrepreneurship.  Its not like people come to America and start businesses in cities, like buying taxis, car services, food carts or bodegas or creating Etsy and Foursquare.  Does he have any idea how idiotic the things that come out of his mouth sound?
 
2013-01-31 03:42:59 PM  
Friess is just voicing the well-known Founder principle of "One Acre, One Vote."
 
2013-01-31 03:44:12 PM  
I love it... Instead of figuring out why they lost, they think they actually "won" because they won the only votes that matter.  I guess they also think they can still win overall future elections with the same crazy stuff that's has been coming out of the current GOP... and from that ever growing angry, old, white people demographics...

Please proceed.

How has no one pointed out the quote:

"Now that [Republicans] have trained their barrels on President Obama, I hope his teleprompters are bullet-proof."

Oh, but I'm sure he's not inciting violence against the President.

the gender gap would be smaller had Democrats not "seduced" women voters

Oh no, he's on to our fifty skeet initiative.

They don't call us the "big tent" party fer nuthin'.

They learned the importance of contraception after I left in the middle of the night.

Something something caucus.

2013-01-31 03:45:22 PM  
Of COURSE he would say that. You drop nearly $3 million for a failed campaigned, do you say "lol I wasted my money", or do you insist that it went toward some kind of Republican mandate?

I've worked with many Engineers who exemplify this trait..( very smart, but can't relate to other human beings...)
 
2013-01-31 03:49:11 PM  
Well the man is seventy-two years old so there's a good chance that he'll sound even crazier by the mid-term elections so that's something to look forward to.
