In Chicago, everyone hauls stones for Obama’s pyramid scheme…

…one way or another

    That’s hilarious. The gift that keeps on grifting.

    People from Chicago, and the rest of Illinois, wanna keep electing criminals and grifters and they keep paying for it.
    Good.

    For that many bucks, I guarantee some weasel in Rahmland is going to grift some Federal cash, “for the children” or some such bilge.

    Just wondering – if it’s a presidential library, how come it will not contain Buraq’s presidential papers – yannow, his birth certificate, college records, Indonesian passport, naturalization papers, and all the legislating from the Oval Office shit he signed with his fingers crossed?
    He still doesn’t know what his once-vaunted “transparency” means after all these years.

    Considering it won’t contain presidential papers, and given Moochelle’s ‘taste’ in clothing, I think this would be appropriate and very Afro-centric for the library building.

    ….Hope that it becomes Mr Tut Obongo’s Mausoleum and gets buried alive!

    I heard the Reverends Jackson and Sharpton are gonna’ give till it hurts. They’re going to donate a large quantity of unsold Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown “He don’t be doin’ nothing when da white cop ‘offed him” T-shirts. Sizes come in XXL to XXXXXL.

    Chicago helped create the monster. If they don’t like it, they should gather with pitch forks and destroy the monster. If they’re lucky, they’ll find the evil that created their monster and destroy it too.

    Jess, they created him. They deserve him.
    That’s what makes it so funny.
    The only funnier, and more appropriate thing would be a tax on journalists and media outlets to pay for it.

    Isn’t this just the kind of thing that the Clinton Foundation was set up to help with?

    I know I’m a little slow off the mark at the best of times, but it just occurred to me… an “extra” $200 mil ??

    So what was the original continuing resolu… er, um ….budget for this thing?

    Dang! I thought about the pyramid angle a few minutes ago. It’s a good analogy: lets people for miles around the the Great One was here.

    As I hear it, the extra $200M is to refurbish a nearby rail station, built about 100 or so years ago. The plan is to use mass transit to bring the adoring multitudes to the Shrine of the New Savior.

    My thought: who’s going to want to walk six or eight blocks through that neighbor-HOOD to get there?

    That mass transit to the Shrine will never go over unless they allow passengers to board with 6-packs of spray paint.
