Not to mention the near Def-Con 4 panic that went berzerk because no officials were notified of this promo prank.

Yeah, Timmy, this is old news but when I heard this morning that the price tag got re-estimated -- from $328,000 to $357,000 -- I just had to mention it but I didn't really want to do a whole rant that I very well could've done.

Nice pic... but a little costly. Coulda been done for $000,000 with Photoshop... and without causing the fear in NYers from the idea that a plane is going to be crashed into Manhattan again!!! Idiots in the White House. Just plain stoopid.

You know, that sure is a nice picture, but.......
I'm as American as you can be, but I sure think that picture is wrong on so many levels...Cost....Panic...Total stupidity...everything. I'm amazed that they didn't accidentally flush the toilet and drop some presidental poop on the taxpayers. It Obama wants to spend our tax dollars, use it wisely. Feed our own poor people, cloth and house our own homeless people. Just grow a brain!

Sorry for the rant....

Rants are welcome, my friend. No need to say sorry!

Well, "...spend our tax dollars, use it wisely. Feed our own poor people, cloth and house our own homeless people." is SO UN"conservative". Isn't their belief (something like) "there will always be X number of poor and/or disenfranchised, but it ain't me, so fuck them"? You know...why should *I* be taxed to pay for healthcare or education or any other type of well-being for anybody but ME???

Is that your perception of conservatives, that they only care for themselves? How have you formed that opinion? That's extremely sad that some people walk around thinking that.

In general, conservatives don't want to say Fuck Them about the less fortunate. Quite the opposite...

Do you know that conservatives give MORE to charity each and every year than liberal Democrats? Look it up, it's true.

The difference is conservatives don't believe they should have their money forced out of their wallets, money that will then be freely given to people for things they should be earning/paying for themselves. I shouldn't have to be paying for the jobless single woman having her 5th baby out of wedlock from a 5th different man. I shouldn't be forced to pay for an abortion for a 15 yr old, especially a 15 yr old in Nigeria. I shouldn't be forced to pay the medical bills of the person next door who got diabetes when he knew he shouldn't have been drinking a liter of Coke and eating a box of ho-ho's every day. One more? I shouldn't have to pay for the college education for the kid down the street who plays video games everyday without any care in the world for paying for is OWN college education. A liberal government wants to give people everything.

Conservatives believe in LESS government, in people helping themselves and in helping your neighbor and fellow human beings VOLUNTARILY. Why should the President stick a gun in our ribs and say "You're successful so Fork it over, you're going to pay for the welfare of others." We shouldn't be robbed like that when we've worked hard to earn our paychecks.

It might be cold and callous to horde money and be a greedy selfish bastard... but American freedom means that is okay. Should that freedom be taken away from people, to work hard and save every cent selfishly? To an extent, that freedom already has been stripped from the American citizen. Maybe our whole paycheck should immediately go to the government and they can doll it back to us in the amount we need to live sufficiently. The rest can go into the kitty to be used for the good of others.

Theft like that from the American citizen is wrong but giving from the heart, voluntarily, to what you want to give to is a beautiful thing. Conservatives are not all about Fuck Them, they are all for charity to help others, not forced giving.

Dear Liberal Complainers,

It is ok to send extra money to the IRS each and every April 15th, if you really want to support Federally funded bleeding-heart programs. If you have never sent more than you owe, for the gov't to use, please look up the word hypocrite in the dictionary......

Regards,
Ron H.

...on the other hand, it's a fuckin' shame (and really quite annoying) that what tax revenue I send (not "extra money") is pissed-away on ("bleeding heart") corporate welfare, money-maker (profiteering) wars, and the Wall Street bailout (engineered/NO accident by the world banking families....Rothschild, Warburg, Rockefeller) - oh, maybe that should read "bleeding asshole" (quite the fucking!), not heart. While I'm looking up "hypocrite" in the dictionary, you can shove your goddamn christmas pudding up your ass (- "Regards").

Zooma - I will consider your your points. But, over the years, GOP has lived up to GREEDY OLD PRICKS.

one says one number and the other another
but they were set at the same time. Hmmm...
