One Liner of the Day



“Wait a minute now. I didn’t authorize ‘attacks’ on the pirates, I authorized ‘a tax’ on the pirates.”


Makes sense, the asshole's taxing everything else, why not the pirates.

Perfect. Absolutely perfect. BTW, the "pirate" will get put on juvenile probation and then kicked out the door to a foster home at US taxpayer expense.

LOL That could well be what he really said.

It likely was EXACTLY what he said.

There was a contest over at

as to what to call Wanda Sykes.

And the consensus went to calling Wanda Sykes an ASS-HOLE!

AA,
Very clever. Thanks for the laugh. Well done.

Would be nice if he did tax them, instead of bringing them to the US under the pretense of justice.

Chuck said...

Good plan, let them kidnap foreign ships, get ransom, pay taxes to us.

Brooke said...

Not to worry. The pirates, like Obama's cabinet, won't actually have to pay any taxes.

There are much more significant things of which to criticize Obama. I should think our efforts would be focused on those so as not to relegate ourselves to the likes of the "Bush haters".

Criticizing Obama for trivial and meaningless gaffes or what have you does nothing for our credibility on substantive issues.

Soapboxgod, two points:

1. It's funny.
2. We're according MUCH more respect to this administration than the Leftists presented to the previous administration. Those are facts in evidence.

Of course the Somalian pirates won't actually pay taxes. Why should they, the Washington pirates don't. I just happened onto this little play on words and thought it would give everyone a good laugh, and it seems to have worked for the most part. We all needed a laugh for a change. Thank you all for stopping in and adding your views.
