President Obama is a master troll.  He knew exactly how this would play out, to wit:

1. He mentions that he goes skeet shooting, which makes the derps foam at the mouth yelling "LIAR WHAR PROOF FARTBONGO"

2. He then issues a picture of himself skeet shooting, to which the derps then reply "THIS LOOKS SHOPPED 0BUMMER HATES GUNS"

He thus continues to have the right wing going nuts over stupid shiat, completely destroying their credibility to anyone outside that echo chamber.

Do you feel good about that post? You shoudn't. You're assuming he owns the gun. That he had to go out and purchase a fire, which as POTUS probably didn't happen.

As for background checks, I'm sure the FBI, CIA, NSA, and DHS have NEVER done a background check on the president. Nor would any of his opponents during any of the political races he has ever been through.

The POTUS is probably the most checked out person in society and here you are taking 'pot' shots at him like the 4th grader at the back of the bus telling his friends about how poorly the driver does, just because you spent $.75 playing Cruisin USA.

You're an unmitigated moron who makes your side of the control debate look stupider by your mere support. Go home.


So why won't he release his university transcripts? All the other presidents have, even GWB who was a solid C student. If he has nothing to hide and this is so stupid, why not shut everyone up?

That was my point all along.  He decided to claim he shot skeet all the time down at Camp David.  Now he's throwing the pic up as proof.


So ... he put up proof as to his statement ... and that makes him a liar?

Have you considered psychiatric help?

He put up proof of nothing.  He did a photo op with a gun and then probably asked for hand cleaner to wash off the ickyness.  He's the one trying to be all tough and into guns.  Why don't you question him?

Friend, I am so pleased that you speak your mind, but we're in a time of war.  Please respect the President.  Our enemies are looking for any break in our resolve and all Americans need to present a unified front if we're going to succeed.  Remember: if you're not with us, you're against us and you need to watch what you say.

What?  Someone should ask some questions shouldn't they?  Are suggesting that it no longer allowed to ask to doubt the president?  I know what you are trying to troll.  Jesus Bush was at the bottom a constant street fight but now Obama plays patty cakes with the press.  The only significant difference in the two is that my health care costs went up and now we are going to go for the generational gun grab.


Friend, the members of the press, including this gentleman:

crooksandliars.com

Have a duty to report the President's message as it is originally reported.  Please don't compromise the security of the mission by asking questions.  We need to fight them over there so we don't have to fight them over here.

lordjupiter: wellreadneck: parasol: fwiw - and likely, not much

wellreadneck....I'm a fourth generation southerner..."redneck" (as you probably know) was originally used to describe ppl whose necks were sunburned from working outside - and "cracker" was used to describe the cracking noise of the whips used to herd cattle

if the phrase offends you consider that it is now being used, culturally, by the honey-boo-boo clan to self-describe - with pride. how "redneck" moved from "slim hard working outdoorsmen with the exclusionary and suspicious nature of feral intent" to "overweight women with delusions of glamour" i'll never

Actually, "redneck" was originally used to describe Scottish Covenantors and has followed their descendants since they been in the U.S. Check Wiki, the religious explanation is 1830, the sunburn claim,1893.
 Not particularly offended by the term, just how it's used. In the big tent politics of today, it seems that terms like "redneck", much like "hillbilly", "white trash" and some others, are used to unite a bunch of disparate groups under the same liberal banner, giving them all a common enemy. It's certainly a wise choice. It won't offend anyone within the group, as they don't self-identify as such, and any claims of predjudice are easily dismissed, even though we all know to whom it refers.
My mom and dad, whose ancestors were Covenantors, poor white farmers and union coal miners, had a yard full of "Ditch Mitch" and "Obama 2012" yard signs, didn't make them any less "redneck". It's crappy when one side uses a dog-whistle, it's just as crappy when the other side does.


Again, not strictly race.  Not the same thing.

Redneck is no worse than "metrosexual".  Get over it.


Reminds me of this:

Lisa: I believe they prefer to be called "conjoined twins."

yours.

Foreign.

We don't expect you to understand. Obama released this picture to convey that his views on firearms could not posdibly be extreme since he too enjoys a bit of skeet. Unfortunately, his views are extreme, and sport has nothing to do with the second amendment.

And his form is fine for the gun he is using. If he shot a whole lot he should modify the stock to fit him better. But, the lump of flesh above the stock indicates he was correctly seating his cheek and jaw to line his view along the barrel. He looks like an occasional shooter who has has good instruction, but could use a slightly better fitted stock to his frame.

He is just a elitist douche for trying to ban types of guns he doesn't like.

FARTBONGO NO SHOOT!!!

See this is why they pushed the photo.  Because people who don't like guns are ignorant about things.  Do you see smoke in that pic?  Do you see the gun on his shoulder?  No.  He's bringing the gun up to fire the shot.  If the guy in pic was actually shooting at that moment the kickback would have tore his armpit up and blown the gun out his hands.


Never been quail or dove hunting?  It is completely possible to make a shot off kilter, holding your gun all weird, on uneven ground without "tearing up your armpit" or the shotgun "blowing out of your hands".  In fact, most shooting in a bird hunting in a trip is super fast paced, where you don't get the luxury to line everything up.  The only people that get that luxury are rich guys that have birds released in front of them, but still manage to shoot their friends in the face.

So, from lookingb at this thread...the intelligent criticisms from this thread can be refuted with
- that type of gun releases s one out the side of the barrel
- he had just fired causing him to lean back slightly
- he was firing at rabbit targets or the slope of the range would change his aim

I dunno...this is getting close to the "when you open a picture in photoshop, that's what happens to the text" critiques of his birth certificate.

Oh I'm sorry.  You think I called your savior a moron.  I don't think he's a moron.  I think he's very crafty actually.

I think he posed for some pictures last week to cover his ass on the lie he told about shooting guns all the time.  I don't care if he shoots guns.  What gets me is that he's so obviously lying about the whole thing.

Honestly, I don't recognize the foliage in the background.  I'm pretty sure that's not indiginous to Western Maryland.  Clearly a shop.  Propaganda.  Therefore, proof that Obummer is a gun grabber.  In my expert opinion as an armchair botanist and patriot.

JohnnyC: bestie1: I don't care about his form but if he really was shooting at a clay pigeon and not just posing for a picture the gun would be angled up.

Have a look at the picture I posted above... Although you'll need to put your slanted bias away, it could 'tilt' the image for you.


Forget it he's trolling.

"When the shiat goes down, man, the militia is all you can rely on," said Obama, who sources confirmed has formed a loose affiliation of local gun owners that meets on weekends to conduct what they call "training exercises" in the Rose Garden. "And believe me, the shiat will go down. There is a war coming. And it's coming quick. And you just better hope that when it does go down you're not caught on the wrong side of that line, brother, because I will not hesitate to defend what I hold dear."

Giltric: Emracool the Aeons Hip: WhoopAssWayne: I'm sure he can produce his mental health on demand - just like he's calling for everyone else - right liberals? Yeah, we didn't think so. Maybe he got a prescription for anti-anxiety drugs at some point in his life, like say after the death of a parent. No gun rights for you citizen. Maybe he was prescribed wellbutrin for his smoking cessation, which is also used to treat depression. No gun rights for you citizen. He has said that his father suffered from alcoholism and depression. No gun rights for you citizen. He has publicly admitted to using illegal drugs, that horrible destroyer of lives, marijuana. No gun rights for you citizen. Surely he's practicing for himself what he's preaching to the rest of us, right liberals?

Excuse me, but I'm not entirely convinced that admitting you've smoked weed in the past would stop anyone from selling you a gun, provided you didn't get a felony over it. Anyway, he's smart. I'm more ok with him having a weapon than Billy Ray Jimbob down by the river.

11 e......lieing on a 4473 is a felony

Red Shirt Blues: bigbaddoc: 1) He's leaning back (or at least not leaning forward... can't drive with the legs the way he's standing).

Ok.......suppose he was leaning forward and due to his light weight the recoil of the gun pushed him back into the vertical just as the photographer captured the shot thus giving us the impression of him not leaning forward. Back an to the left.


That was my favorite part about his post. For his criticisms to be accurate, the photo would have had to be taken at at least 3 different times.

Frank N Stein: Why? What did Billy Ray Jimbob down by the river ever do to demonstrate that he shouldn't have his 2A rights?


Well, the fact that he listens to Glenn Beck, has a passing interest in joining a "Militia", drinks a twelver of bud every night, yells at his wife, is a terrible father and runs a lab in his closet that hasn't exploded yet are a few reasons...

amquelbettamin: Actually very good skeet form. He has had lessons clearly.


I know everyone on Fark is an expert, but you're way off here. I've shot competitive skeet for decades... His form is atrocious.

1) He's leaning back (or at least not leaning forward... can't drive with the legs the way he's standing).
2) His legs are straight upright. As a lefty, his right leg should bear 80% of the weight and the left leg locked.
3) Gun is too high on his shoulder.
4) Gun is far outside of the shoulder pocket. He'd have a horrible bruise on his left shoulder and bicep if he shot more than a few rounds like this.
5) Right hand too far forward-- no ability to control the gun this way.
6) Right hand too far underneath gun-- should be out the the side.
7) Left elbow should be parallel with shoulder, not hunched down like that.
8) Draw a line from the eye forward-- all he can see is the back of the receiver.

Someone with a single skeet lesson from a qualified instructor would have much better form. Someone who "shoots skeet all the time" wouldn't make most of those mistakes.

Nice try, propaganda machine, but that picture is fake. Let's count the ways: 1- target is level to the ground, not in the air as a skeet target would be; 2- shotguns do not emit a plume of smoke from the side of the barrel end; 3- shooter's straight up and down stance... shooting a shotgun demands a aggressive stance, leaning forward into the shot to brace for recoil- Obama is not THAT MUCH of a badass to fire without leaning forward; with his physical size he would end up falling backward with that upright stance after he fired; 4- no sign of any recoil movement at all.
