You’re Not Yourself, Hillary. Here, Eat A Snickers. What? What Do You MEAN You Already Had One? That’s Really YOU???

August 3, 2016

Have you seen that Snickers Ad campaign?  You’re not yourself when you’re hungry.  Here’s my favorite sample:

Well, what I have to tell you is based on a true story, as they say.  The conversation went something like this:


“Mrs. Clinton?  Are you okay?  I just know you’re not being your true self right now.  Here, eat this Snickers bar.”


[Sound of wrapper being ripped open and loud chewing and heavy breathing as the Snickers is consumed].


“There, Mrs. Clinton.  That ought to bring you back to your real self!”


“OW!  DAMN!  OW!!!  Mrs. Clinton, YOU BIT ME!!!”


“Oh NO!  You mean, THIS IS THE REAL YOU???”


“People have to know the truth!  I have to tell them!”


“Ow, my hand.  It feels like you poisoned me…”




Paid for by the feelings of every single American with a human soul.



The Hypocrite Chutzpah Of Hillary Clinton And Every Fascist Who Supports Her

April 21, 2016

Came across an article that just made me start laughing.  Here’s how it ends:

The speech in 2013 was one of three Clinton made on behalf of Goldman Sachs. According to public records, Clinton gave 92 speeches between 2013 and 2015. Her standard fee is $225,000, and she collected $21.6 million dollars in just under two years. Clinton made 8 speeches to big banks, netting $1.8 million, according to a CNN analysis.

There is nothing illegal or unethical about former Secretaries of State earning money on the speaking circuit. And according to sources in the industry, there is nothing unusual about someone with the name value of Hillary Clinton being able to charge so much.

The standard fee and her demands are outlined in a memo from the Harry Walker Agency in New York.

According to the memo, Clinton requires travel by private jet, and even specifies that she prefers a Gulfstream 450 or larger. Her staff requires first class and business class tickets. And two members of her staff require up to three days on site to prepare, with all local transportation and meals included.

The memo states Clinton should be booked into a presidential suite with up to three separate rooms attached.

Clinton also requires a flat fee of $1,000 to pay for an onsite stenographer to record everything she says. However, Clinton is not required to provide the host with a copy, according to the memo.

Costs associated with her demands are on top of her speaking fee.

The speeches have been shrouded in privacy. Her staff has limited photographs and at times even confiscated cell phones. Attendees of some Clinton speeches complained vocally on social media that they were told to turn their phones off — no photos, no live tweeting.

In the summer of 2013, Clinton spoke before a major convention of human resources executives. The group had previously hosted speeches of Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice, both former Secretaries of State. John Hollon, an editor for an online trade journal attended both, and tried to attend Clinton’s speech. He says he was kicked out due to Clinton’s request for no media.

“This is the only time in 10 or 11 years of going to to the annual event, which is the biggest human resource event of the year, the only time they have banned press from any speaker,” said Hollon.

There was no reason given, he says. The Society for Human Resource Management, the host of the event, told CNN: “All keynote speakers come with some requirements.”


There’s nothing on any of those transcripts that would ever get Hillary in any trouble.  As long as nobody who has a shred of integrity is never allowed to ever see them.

And strangely enough the same media that sent reporters to fly to Alaska to dig through Sarah Palin’s trash and published all of her emails and begged readers to help them find any dirt they could use to demonize her; the same media that has steadfastly refused to try to produce Obama’s college records that Obama for some reason spent $2 million to suppress (that prove he applied as a foreign exchange student) or the video of his evening celebrating terrorist Rashid Khalidi (that document Obama is a terrorist sympathizer); that same media somehow oh-so-strangely can’t find any trace of any of Hillary’s 92 speeches.

So 92 Shakespearean oratories for which she received about twenty-two million bucks and the mainstream media can tell you what Sarah Palin had for lunch because they have the contents of her garbage can to prove it.

They can’t find a single one of those speeches that would make Hillary Clinton unelectable when the same damn media INVENTED records when they needed to in order to falsely demonize George W. Bush.

You’re not going to know the truth about what this wicked liar said.  The media have already circled the wagons.

And for the record, even when it is a documented FACT that Hillary lied to the level of outright treason against the American people over a foreign policy scandal, the dishonest left couldn’t give less of a damn.  Truth only matters to a people capable of valuing the truth.  Which is why we’re in the mess we’re in today – and why that mess is going to get so much worse.

Okay, so let’s rephrase this in terms that liberals would instantly understand if they weren’t THE WORST HYPOCRITES WHO EVER ROACH-CRAWLED ACROSS PLANET EARTH:

She betrayed everything she publicly professes to believe in 92 times, which at least means she didn’t completely sell out a hundred times.  So you can’t say with complete accuracy that she’s a sell-out a hundred times over, unless you factor in all the OTHER damn ways she sold out, such as all the financial shenanigans of the Clinton Foundation (see here and here for example).  In which case she’s a sell-out fraud about a billion times over.  There was Haiti, where the Clinton Foundation fraud began practically from the moment the earthquake shook.  They exploited the sheer appalling incompetence of the United Nations that Chelsea described in an email in order to push THE MOST wasteful of projects to line their pockets and of course in order to line the pockets of their circle of crooks.  And let’s not even mention those absolutely and utterly detestable foreign governments that bribed the Clintons.  There’s nothing to say because there’s absolutely no possible defense other than shameless corrupt greed.

It’s just a FACT: Hillary Clinton is CORRUPT.  Hillary Clinton IS FOR SALE:

WASHINGTON — It’s not just Wall Street banks. Most companies and groups that paid Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton to speak between 2013 and 2015 have lobbied federal agencies in recent years, and more than one-third are government contractors, an Associated Press review has found. Their interests are sprawling and would follow Clinton to the White House should she win election this fall.

The AP’s review of federal records, regulatory filings and correspondence showed that almost all the 82 corporations, trade associations and other groups that paid for or sponsored Clinton’s speeches have actively sought to sway the government — lobbying, bidding for contracts, commenting on federal policy and in some cases contacting State Department officials or Clinton herself during her tenure as secretary of stat

Corporations are evil, liberals tell us.  Unless, of course, the corporation is something like Solyndra (and see also here).  Even as it takes half a billion dollars of Obama money and produces nothing and leaves us with nothing but even more giant debt for the people to repay as the executives fly off with Hillary in her Gulfstream and bribe her by paying for a “speech.”  Liberalism is crony capitalism, which is another term for “fascism.”  Liberalism is using the raw force of government to pick who wins and who loses, pure and simple.

Don’t expect anything but hate from a Democrat if you actually produce a damn product that people truly NEED.  I used to see people driving around in cars with idiotic slogans demonizing the oil that actually makes them go and I just wish I had a rocket launcher on me.  Now, of course, instead I see these self-righteous turds driving electric cars that require more than TWICE the carbon pollution to build than a gas car, run on energy that came from polluting sources, and end up contaminating dumps with toxic-chemical-oozing batteries.  And I STILL want that rocket launcher.

Hillary demands a private jet because she truly despises planet earth.  She demands a Gulfstream 450 or larger, because it will murder Mother Earth more quickly.  You simply need to understand: these fascists don’t give ONE FLYING DAMN about climate change, other than the fact that they can exploit it and demagogue it and make a lot of millions of dollars demonizing people who don’t spew one TRILLIONTH as much global warming gasses as these pompous pollution bags do.

And she needs all those millions of dollars explaining at secretive coven-gatherings how she’ll help the filthiest of the filthy-rich because that’s how she can afford to turn every light on and run every appliance at all of her giant palatial mansions.

Because little people need to live miserable, deprived lives so liberal elites can have everything and feel good about their service to the environment.  You know, the way Obama and Biden welched on charitable giving because they prefer to force OTHER people to have their incomes seized by taxes imposed by people who don’t give SQUAT of their own money.

It’s kind of funny: at his VERY BEST, Obama gave about HALF of what the hated George W. Bush gave as a percentage of income; AND THEN LO AND BEHOLD THAT MEASELY HALF WENT TO NEXT TO NOTHING AFTER OBAMA GOT RE-ELECTED.  But liberalism is all about the celebration over forcing other people to do, never in actually doing their damn selves.

So we reminisce on how Romney got savagely demonized for the effective tax rate that he paid; and the same people who demonized him don’t even bother to cover their mouths as they yawn at the fact that the tyrant king of all other-people’s-wealth-redistributionists pays a LOWER RATE THAN THE GUY THEY DEMONIZED.  Because being a liberal means “It’s NEVER fascist when WE do what we demonize YOU for doing!”

Moral Standards-Hypocrite

Hillary and her staff of lesbian Satanists receive presidential suite accommodations whenever they board their climate-killing private jets to sell-out to Wall Street greed merchants.  Because to flaming-hot-fiery HELL with this “we represent the little guy” crap, at least until we speak our platitudes to propagandists masquerading as “journalists” who will spread the lies to the unwashed, ignorant masses.  It’s actually kind of laughable to consider that four yeas ago Mitt Romney ran for president and his wealth was used against him like a baseball bat smashing his face by people who are completely lacking in honor or honesty or decency or sincerity or virtue or integrity whatsoever.  And the same kind of people voted out their hypocrisy.  And yeah, it’s always amazing how money somehow doesn’t matter when a John Kerry marries a billionaire heiress because it only matters when a John McCain marries a millionaire heiress.

Watch Hillary make Trump’s wealth a campaign issue in spite of her her multi-million dollar mansions in Georgetown and Chappaqua and her jet-setting lifestyle of the rich and shameless.  Because to be a Democrat is to live in the perpetual state of Orwellian Two Minutes Hate for whoever you’re told to hate.  And it doesn’t matter to you that the people you’re told to hate are frankly better than the people who tell you to hate them.

The speeches are shrouded in privacy.  Because Hillary Clinton is a worse fascist than Hitler was.  Her staff limits photographs.  Because a) Hillary Clinton is a worse fascist than Hitler was and b) it requires special techniques for vampires to appear on film.  Her staff confiscates cell phones.  Because a) Hillary Clinton is a worse fascist than Hitler and b) her unaltered voice murders puppies.

In order to hear a Hillary Clinton speech you must take the mark of the beast on your right hand or on your forehead.  Oh, and fork over $225,000 check payable to “Lucifer.”

And yeah, as often as Hillary tries to weasel out of providing the transcripts of her speeches [that she charged the filthy-rich Wall Street oppressors $225,000 a pop plus lavish expenses] under the pathetic excuse that lots of other Secretaries of State who HAVE NEVER RUN FOR PRESIDENT should first pose naked so the leftist propaganda can bait-and-switch change the subject to what somebody WHO HAS NEVER RUN FOR PRESIDENT SAID, this fact remains: Hillary Clinton is a demonstrably more paranoid, manipulative, secretive Nazi fascist than all of the other ex-officials who ever gave a speech COMBINED.

So please vote for Hellery. Because you need to do that to “upgrade” yourselves to a hotter place in hell.

‘I Think, Therefore I Am’ For Dummies

October 2, 2014

I was at my gym yesterday and saw something hilarious.

Now, understand, I was laughing in sympathy with this poor woman [nearly] as much as I was laughing at her.

A beautiful Porsche convertible parks right in front of the gym and an attractive woman gets out.  She did not appear to be the result of a ninth generation of inbreeding by any means.  I assumed she was coming into the gym (after all, she parked right in front of the front door to it).  But instead, she starts walking around the building.

Not yet wanting to do my next set of grunting while repeatedly lifting a heavy object for no particular reason, I’m watching her walk around the gym.  ‘Where in the world is she going?’ I thought.  There isn’t much for a fair distance down the road.  There does happen to be a liquor store nearby; maybe she’s planning on getting soused before her workout?  We’ve all got our “unique” (that’s another name for “weird”) routines, after all.

Well, that wasn’t what it was.  Instead, she was just trying to find the door.  She’d somehow not seen the double glass doors that were nearly directly in front of where she’d parked and had instead walked over to the fire escape exit on the opposite side of the front of the building.  She pulls on the door several times and discovers that it is locked on the outside.  And then amazingly continues walking on further in the wrong direction around the side of the building.

At this, one of my friends runs over and taps on the glass.  He points to where the door is.  She sees him.  She appears to understand.  She turns around and starts heading in the correct direction toward the door. But she still doesn’t quite get it right.  Because there’s another set of doors between the main entrance and the fire escape that has never once been opened the entire time I’ve been a member of the gym.  That’s where I always park my motorcycle, in fact.

So the woman is now standing in front of these doors – which she’d walked past the first time – trying to figure out how to get around or climb over my motorcycle.  My cruiser bike is eight-and-a-half feet long; it completely blocks the doors that remain shut whether I’m parked there or not.

Greg to the rescue again.  He again runs over and taps on the glass.  At this point the woman simply has no clue what to do.  So he actually proceeds to run over to the doors and opens one of the them for her.  Which I believe I mentioned was nearly directly in front of where she’d parked her Porsche.

You might ask where I was when this poor woman was in distress and Greg was valiantly trying to guide her into the gym.  Why, I was laughing like a hyena, of course.  And I’m a chronic sufferer of the debilitating handicap of not being able to laugh hysterically and do anything else at the same time.

The attractive woman who had driven up in the beautiful Porsche and did not look at all like the ninth generation of inbreeding finally made it through the door with the most sheepish look in the world on her face.  And I’m just smiling innocently and sweetly at her with – it is my hope – only the barest hint of “Must… not … burst into laughter…” look on my face.

She still wasn’t through wandering the wrong direction, I couldn’t help but notice.  After making arrangements to do her workout at the front desk, she zigged when she should have zagged and wandered into the free weight pit on one side instead of the lockers and cardio area to the other side.

Ah, the tenuous grip we have on our dignity.  So difficult to erect, so easy to dismantle.

Okay, I might sound a bit cruel here.  But I’d just had a conversation with one of the pastors at my church that ought to explain why I viewed this woman’s travails as so hilarious.

This particular assistant pastor has his hand in a cast.  Why is his hand in a cast?  According to his explanation, “Because I’m stupid, that’s why.”

He had managed to get overly excited and slammed his hand down on a table that he’d forgotten was there.  And the final score was table one, hand zero.

Trying to cheer him up, I recast the story of the woman caught in adultery for him.  In this version, it was about the woman caught in the act of being stupid.  And the mob was just about to stone her for stupidity when Jesus showed up and said, “Let the one among you who has never been a bonehead cast the first stone.”  And of course, everyone in the mob, having themselves been a bonehead, all put their stones down and absent-mindedly wandered off wondering what in the world they’d been doing just before they’d picked up those rocks.

Rene Descartes came up with the expression that led to the explosion of Western philosophy: “Cogito, ergo sum.”  Or, “I think, therefore I exist.”

There’s just one problem with this formula, however: namely, few if any of us humans really do ever actually think very dang much.  And if we have to think in order to exist, well, you can understand why our species is in so much trouble.

There’s a story about Descartes.   After writing down his most famous thought, he went to a tavern and celebrated by having a few tankards of ale.  When the barkeep asked him if he’d like another, he said, “I think not.”  And then he dematerialized.  It’s probably not true, but it seemed worth telling.

Anyway, how many of us humans actually THINK?  For 99.999% of the human race, if somebody recited Descartes’ formula and claimed, “I think, therefore I am,” a spouse or family member would deny the first premise – “You don’t either think!” – and blow their whole argument for existing away.

Yes to existing, a big fat NO to thinking.

So it occurred to me that we humans need to re-write the “I think, therefore I am” formula to match our actual experience.  So here is my version:

I can’t say I actually think, but I do stupid stuff all the time for which I constantly suffer the consequences.  Therefore I exist.”

Okay.  It admittedly lacks the punch and pizzaz of Descartes’ version, but it does have the virtue of being considerably closer to actual reality.

For the record, I write certain information on my hanging wall calendar.  Well, I forgot to turn over my calendar from September and wrote events on Wednesday’s and Thursday’s slot on the calendar.  Which is to say I basically entered appointments for September 31st and September 32nd.  Fortunately, I ran out of empty spaces for September or I likely would have just kept going to September 33rd and beyond.  I mean, you’ve got your Mayans who were able to develop and maintain incredibly sophisticated and accurate calendars even back in the stone ages, and then you’ve got people like me…

Well, at least I didn’t break my hand this time.  Although I did once cut off part of my right index finger in one of my more brilliant attempts to refute Descartes’ formulation: no, I don’t think, but I’ve got to exist in order to cut off my danged finger, don’t I?  So nyah nyah nyah, Rene Descartes!  Whose the dummy now?

Message For The GOP: Dog Shows Republicans How To Handle Democats

Okay, maybe I’m reading too much politics into everything. But I sure wish Republicans would take after this pooch in their ability to deal with their adversaries:

Yep.  Definitely reading too much politics into everything.

ObamaCare Summed Up By Illinois Doctor In One Incredibly Long And Even More Incredibly DAMNING Sentence

September 17, 2012

 Dr. Barbara Bellar:

Obama, The Empty Chair And Clint Eastwood. In Story And Pictures.

September 3, 2012

The sad reality on Labor Day:

It’s National Empty Chair Day, and here’s my contribution to this great American holiday inspired by the Barack Obama presidency.

A story for background:

While suturing a cut on the hand of a 75 year old Texas rancher, whose hand was caught in a gate while working cattle, the doctor struck up a conversation with the old man.

Eventually the topic got around to Obama and his bid to be our President.

The old rancher said, ‘Well, ya know, Obama is a ‘post turtle’.’

Not being familiar with the term, the doctor asked him what a ‘post turtle’ was. The old rancher said, ‘When you’re driving down a country road and you come across a fence post with a turtle balanced on top, that’s a ‘post turtle’.’

The old rancher saw a puzzled look on the doctor’s face, so he continued to explain.

‘You know he didn’t get up there by himself, he doesn’t belong up there, he doesn’t know what to do while he is up there, and you just wonder what kind of a dumb ass put him up there!.’

Now for Obama and the metaphor of the empty chair:

“You know he didn’t get up there by himself, he doesn’t belong up there, he doesn’t know what to do while he is up there, and you just wonder what kind of a dumb ass put him up there.”

As Clint Eastwood put it:

“When somebody doesn’t do the job, we got to let them go.”

We got us a Chairman ObaMao for an empty chair, that’s our problem:

It’s time for voters to get pissed off and be like Bobby Knight and just let the damn empty chair go:

There are far too many Americans under this failed presidency who are ending up like this:

No more empty chairs.  Vote Obama out!

This post was inspired by a FreeRepublic forum article.  The pics came from there (with the addition of the post turtle that mysteriously ended up on one chair).  There are quite a few funny takes that are worth seeing.

Update: Ooh, look!  Democrats have their OWN version of “Empty Chair Day!”  Democrats are busing in “Astroturf” Democrats by the thousands to create the bogus illusion that Obama somehow DOESN’T suck.   That’s because in North Carolina, Mitt Romney has an 18-point lead over “the empty chair” on the issue of the economy.

Update, 9/6/12: I received the following comment to another article that made me laugh out loud:

IF anyone is in NC they should get into Bank of America stadium put up an empty chair with an Obama sticker and film the DNC convention of the empty chair talking to the empty chairs.

President “Empty chair” was afraid that there would be way, WAAAAAAY too many empty chairs at Bank of America Stadium.

For the record, the skies are clear in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Obama Energy Solution: We Can Eat America’s Dogs And Then Drive Windmill Cars Powered By Our Flatulence

August 15, 2012

Obama decided to make his attack on Mitt Romney’s wind energy policy personal:

Obama Brings Back Dog-on-Roof Issue When Criticizing Romney
By Fred Lucas
August 14, 2012

( – While expressing his support for the wind industry, President Barack Obama took a veiled shot at his Republican opponent Mitt Romney for transporting his dog on the roof of his car almost 30 years ago in 1983, saying, “I know he’s had other things on his car.”

“During a speech a few months ago, Governor Romney even described his energy policy this way, I’m quoting here, ‘You can’t drive a car with a windmill on it.’ That’s what he said about wind power. ‘You can’t drive a car with a windmill on it,’” Obama told an audience in Oskaloosa, Iowa at the Nelson Pioneer Farm & Museum.

Obama went on to make an apparent reference to news stories concerning the widely reported 1983 vacation by the Romney family in which the family’s Irish sitter Seamus was placed in a carrier mounted to the rooftop for a 12-hour trip, with three stops. The Boston Globe first reported the matter in 2007.

“Now I don’t know if he’s actually tried that,” Obama said of Romney attaching a windmill to the car. “I know he’s had other things on his car. But, if he wants to learn something about wind, all he’s got to do is pay attention to what you’ve been doing here in Iowa.”

Obama also said, “The wind industry now supports 7,000 jobs here in Iowa, 75,000 jobs across the country. These jobs aren’t a fad. These are good jobs and they’re a source of pride we need to fight for.”

At a Romney campaign rally in Zanesville, Ohio on March 5, Romney criticized Obama on energy.

“What is his energy policy? It’s apparently to make it hard to get coal out of the ground with more regulations, makes it harder to get the gas out of the ground,” Romney said. “And as a result, while he’s happy with wind and solar – we all like wind and solar – but you can’t drive a car with a windmill on it. My plan is that we’re finally going to get America energy secure by taking advantage of our coal, our oil, our gas, and bringing in that Keystone pipeline from Canada.”

In April, dogs became more of an issue when additional news stories pointed out that in Obama’s autobiography, Dreams of My Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance, Obama discloses that he once ate dog meat as a child in Indonesia. Obama even joked about it at the White House Correspondents Association Dinner.

It’s frankly amazing that this cheap-shot artist Chicago thug is actually our president.

What’s good for the dog-eater ought to be good for the guy who once put his doggy carrier on the roof of his car, however.

You want to bring up Romney’s dog (who LIVED, by the way) in your attack on his energy policy?

Well, America, EAT your damn dog like Barry Hussein did and stick a propeller out of your butt to take advantage of your “natural gas.”

For the record, my own dog has repeatedly testified that she would rather be on Mitt Romney’s roof than digesting inside Barack Obama’s gut.  My dog also says that she would cause as much gastrointestinal distress to our first dog-eating president in history if he ate her – such that he’d get arrested for uncontrollable speeding in his windmill fartmobile.  And my dog says to vote for the guy who DIDN’T eat a dog.

And for the record, the green energy boondoggle that Obama keeps demanding for America hasn’t worked particularly well for Spain – a country that now “enjoys” 25% unemployment with young adults “enjoying” 53% unemployment.  The thing is, of course, that stupid rots the brain and goes into the bones.  And so this election is the harbinger for whether America wants to “enjoy” a Spain-style economy – and remember, Spain was once the mightiest nation on the planet, too – or whether we want to actually quit digging our hole deeper and start climbing out of it with Mitt Romney.

One way or another, if Obama gets re-elected, we’ll be doing something crazy to live in a world where Obama criminalized oil.  Will it be Obama’s windmill fartmobile or a Fred Flintstone car, I don’t know.  But it won’t be much longer before whatever it is – joke though it may be – won’t be funny.

Nancy Pelosi has some exciting models out.

Six Cartoons To Sum Up Obamanomics

Oops.  I guess that last one wasn’t really a “cartoon,” was it?

Obama Rips Off Jeff Foxworthy For His I Believe Ad Campaign

July 27, 2012

Obama has a new campaign called “I believe.”

Where have I heard that line before?

Obama’s got his own “I believe” routine.  But it’s not nearly as funny:

Looking for a little bit of that Olympics magic, President Barack Obama’s reelection campaign will run an ad highlighting his middle class-focused economic pitch during the opening ceremonies of the 2012 Summer Games in London.

“We’re a nation of workers and doers and dreamers. We work hard for what we get. And all we ask for is that our hard work pays off,” Obama says in the 33-second commercial.

“I believe that the way you grow the economy is from the middle, out. I believe in fighting for the middle class, ’cause if they’re prospering, all of us will prosper. That’s the idea of America, and that’s why America is the greatest nation on Earth!”

Jeff Foxworthy: “I believe … that the only thing worse than having diarrhea is trying to have it quietly in a public place.”

The fact that Jeff Foxworthy is talking about nasty turds is only a coincidence and most surely has nothing to do with the turd a.k.a. Barack Obama.

Let me try this “I believe” stuff:

I believe that while you can say ‘The only thing better than pizza is MORE pizza,’ you can’t say that about Obama’s socialism.”

I believe that presidents who spend their entire four years in office wildly failing shouldn’t be spending their entire campaign warchest trying to insinuate that your opponent is less than perfect.”

Okay, okay, I agree: Jeff Foxworthy is better about making statements about Obama trying to be quiet in public places.

The fact of the matter is that Obama is “not paying off” very well for most Americans.  And I believe that we need four more years of Obama the way we need more taxes, more failed business, more people on foodstamps and more people filing for disability because Obama has crippled them economically.

Too Damned Funny Alert: DOT Road Signs Hacked To Read ‘Impeach Obama’

July 7, 2012

You’re driving on the freeway, being alert to all the events, conditions and of course road signs.

And as a good driver you follow your instructions – especially if said instructions are delivered via bright, flashing lights:

DOT Construction Signs Hacked To Read ‘Impeach Obama’
By Todd Walker
Channel 2 News
3:50 p.m. AKDT, July 5, 2012

Several electronic road construction signs around Anchorage were hacked late Wednesday night or early Thursday morning, according to the state Department of Transportation.

Signs that normally display closure and detour information, like the one on Minnesota Drive near 100th Avenue, were changed to read “Impeach Obama.” That particular sign wasn’t fixed until sometime between 6 a.m. and 8 a.m. Thursday.

It happened because DOT says it doesn’t lock the boxes on the signs that hold the message control pad.

Construction managers say sign-hacking has never happened before, so they never thought to lock the boxes.

DOT says that changed this morning, and now all of them will be locked.

“I’m sure somebody thought it was a pretty funny joke but we try to convey a lot of important information with these signs,” said Tim Croghan, a regional construction engineer for DOT.

Tamara Douglas snapped a picture of the sign message around 6 a.m. Thursday.

“(‘Impeach Obama’) was the only thing that was on the sign,” Douglas said. “It was coming in and out and just said that over and over again.”

DOT says anyone caught tampering with construction signs could face charges of criminal mischief, which is a Class A misdemeanor.

Never piss off smart people, I always say.

It’s against the law to tamper with construction signs.  But of course it’s against the law to disregard a sign in a construction zone, too.

I say we follow the second law and impeach Obama.

Impeaching Obama is the ONLY way to drive safely.
