An All or Nothing Proposition

“…on the run-by, gun high, one eye closed…”

Think about it. Just a few days after trying to deprive a man no one had ever heard of from enjoying his free-speech rights because some foreigners claim they were offended, the President of the United States flies off to party with another man who’s earned a pasha’s fortune exercising his own free-speech rights with language that offends many more Americans than not.

…tickets are $400,000 per person. PLUS a 18-foot tower made out of gold-bottled ACE OF SPADES French champagne.

“I think the trick is figuring out how do we structure government systems that pool resources and hence facilitate some redistribution because I actually believe in redistribution, uh, at least a certain level to make sure that everybody’s got a shot.”

    If I turned in the news of the past month as a movie screenplay, it would be rejected out of hand as preposterous, and my character “President Barack Obama” would be panned as a patently-false over-simplified caricature. I would be ashamed to attempt to pass as fiction that which our current Government has done as fact in the past four years. It’s pathetic.

    the Daily Caller says $40,000 not $400,000 per person.

    If by “redistribution” you mean looting and confiscation,
    then yeah.

    The MSM only publicizes statements that they think should controversial – and they tell you that they are “controversial” or “gaffes” or “embarassing”. They don’t publicize statements from both candidates and let people decide for themselves whether they are controversial or mistakes or not.

    USMC2841 (#4): Who ever heard of “Ace of Spades champagne”?

    Well, heck, somebody’s gotta do it:

    Ace of Spades

    Regular Price:$299.99
    ClubBev:$259.99

    We are sorry, this product is currently out of stock at this store”

    You gotta wonder who bought it all……

    But never mind all that. Romney is the icon of the rich.

    (Empty bottles are going for $20 to $30 on eBay. I think someone’s going to clean up after the party.)

    But wait – there’s more:

    Armand De Brignac Ace Of Spades Champagne

    “Armand De Brignac Ace Of Spades Champagne Rose 1.50L
    by ARMAND DE BRIGNAC
    Price: $937.59″

    One thing you gotta say about them Democrats: they sure know how to spend other folks’ money.

    Amidst all that money changing hands, somebody got fucked, but I can’t decide who is the pimp, who is the john and who is the whore in that cast of characters.

    Typo in the original.

    “Ace of Spades” bubbly, eh? Irony or satire?

    Maybe there’s a very witty Republican mole working on the catering.
