the king
« on: March 15, 2013, 09:02:46 PM »
Just saw on the news, fox of course...like you'd see anything negative about barrack on any other channel......that our King has a "Food Taster".  Yes, and we pay for it.  I think our king thinks the taster gets poisoned first.   my god.   :no2:
Famous quotes;

Roady; "I just wonder why the big 4 can't produce somnething that remotely ready out of the box"

Myself;  "Even when working properly, the E/S on these cats sounds like a vintage scooby doo lunch box full of hotwheels getting tossed down a flight of concrete stairs."

Pretty common thing actually, especially where their own food is not used.

Incidentally, The Wun showed up here the other day in Lemont, IL, he was visiting Argonne. At first we could smell him coming (because chit stinks) and then even though it was cold out, the flies started showing up.

Just the same as he has a food taster, they needed to fly Marine 1 & 2 & possibly 3 when he came in, along with a couple chinook helicopters. Apparently when there's 2 or 3 Sea Kings flying, nobody knows which one he's in so he's not subjected to fire from the ground. My brother got some footage yesterday of the wasted taxpayer funds from his backyard because he lives across the street from Argonne.

Multiple helos is common with all presidents - at least since Reagan. While MC1 picks POTUS up at the White House (or wherever), the others are hovering nearby. They leapfrog each other en route to their destination to lessen the possibility of some whack job shooting down the correct helo.

And backup, it's a little hard to put the Prez in a taxi.

As much as I'd like see the present one put in a taxi.........................  ;)

We've elevated the office of president a little too far, he's still just a freaking human being, nowhere near God like.

Why all the security anyway, don't we already have a contingency plan in the event of his untimely demise?

The PUSA just isn't that important to the average person's welfare or the welfare of the nation. Next look at all these little prick mayors and governors with their entourages, who are they afraid of that ordinary citizens aren't?

"The King" has been flying around Chicago for the past couple of days in (5) chinook helicopters. Going from event to event, still campaigning apparently. Do you guys know what it costs to fly (5) twin prop helicopters ? On Sunday morning his transport plane took off from Dupage Airport - gigantic plane that shouldn't have been anywhere near that particular airport, should have flown out of O'hare of Midway.

a lot of truth here.  local and state politics have a MUCH higher direct effect on peoples lives than the pres does.  you want to affect change?  do it at the local level and quit bitchin about national level politicians.
You hate your job??  why didn't you say so?? well, there's a support group for that, it's called EVERYBODY and they meet at the bar.

You can't change anything b/c "they" have the population. All the rest of us are only here to pay their bills.  :banghead:

but the truth remains, change local politics and you will feel the effects much more so than at the federal level.  in IL you might be fighting a losing battle with chicago, but you don't live in chicago, so work on your city/township/county politics if you actually want to see tangible effect.

By square feet, our state (IL) is Republican. All the republican counties and suburbs flourish and stay within budget. Chicago has the population, get the votes and is bankrupt and corrupt.  The fake housing boom was an effort to get people out of the inner cities and into the suburbs, so that they can start taking over all the collar counties and ruin them like they did to Chicago.
