That is actually a really good way to prevent bank runs


That looks like it hurts.

Believe it or not, I kinda feel the same way-but I can't believe this to be a Twana Brawley type made up story.

I mean if it is, the GOP will never recover from this.

That it happen last night and her eyes were blackened that quick, doesn't it usually take a few days to go from red to black eyes?

I'm 85-90% sure this story is legit.

She needs to go live and be interviewed and eat popcorn with Nancy Grace.

Seriously she should come out and not be a victim if this story is true.

I don't really understand this post, shocker given the author, but I am pretty sure I've made it clear I'm not apathetic.

Batshit. That is really all I have left to say.
I believe I've already talked to everyone about dropping the subject as oscar has agreed to drop it himself. He has already been warned. Do I now need to start warning others about calling people batshit insane?

I think the US owes China like 500 Billion right now.

Funny thing though is were enslaved to them now that we've been being propped up by them for so long, for helping the US fund all of her social programs.

So what are we supposed to infer from this? That the attack was politically motivated? The theft of money was secondary to the political message?

Assuming the whole scratching the B on her face thing did indeed happen (I'm prone to be skeptical about that, unless I see evidence), does this mean that Obama's campaign was somehow to blame? Was Obama standing outside and failed to intervene, or to denounce the robber?

Uh, no. It was a robbery, perpetrated by an idiot. No more, no less.


Eta - just saw the picture above. But the rest of my post stands.

Just because the GOP holds onto stuff like Brawley for years and years, doesn't mean the rest of us do. I don't blame the Republicans for the shit crazy people do in their name.

Or are you thinking the GOP will be treated just like they treat others?

BUt in the picture, the B is backwards. It therefore may not even be a B, let alone have relation to Barack Obama. Where is the proof, or even any tiny shred of evidence that could possibly be proof?

And why "B" instead of "O"? Don't you think "Obama" would be the obvious choice over "Barack"?

I guess this idiot has already shown he doesn't have the best judgement in the world, so I suppose questioning his choice of initials is the least of our worries.

Good point. Either the assailant is dyslexic, or he had her on the ground and was situated near the top of her head when he did it. :csi:
