OBAMA TRIVIA FOR THE DAY

jj20030jj20030 galveston islandPosts: 5,776 ✭✭✭✭✭
OBAMA TRIVIA FOR THE DAY It's a little know fact that Barack's family name was originally spelled "O'Bama" but a bureaucrat at the hospital where Barack was born thought the apostrophe was a speck of fly doo and eliminated it from his last name, forever changing "O'Bama" to "Obama". The O'Bama clan were among the original Irish who came to be known as the "Black Irish". Great, Great Great, Great Gandpappy "Baroque O'Bama" image

    Lighten up, Laker; if the Daily Show or Colbert Report was conservative, this is the kind of joke you'd hear Colbert or Stewart crack.

    At any rate, I lol'd; funny stuff

    I guess I should have been more clear. I think the picture is funnier then He ll. I think I have seen it before and yeah, that's funny.
    I was specifically referring to his remark about Obama's place of birth being Kenya. Some people just won't accept facts. I think it is in poor taste to continue to perpetrate this lie. I also think that green is NOT his color.

    Pretty sure the Kenya remark was part of the joke, just like the fly speck and Obama becoming O'Bama

    If we can no longer do political satire about the leftisit of the world then it will be a dull place indeed. I need something to laugh about seeing we have to put up with this narcissistic behavior everyday. Since when did politicos become off limits from either side of the aisle?

    Some of you guy's are making this something it was not intended to be, and I think it is purposely. As I already stated the picture was funny. What wasn't funny was the remarks and insinuation (yet again) about Obama's birth place. I think Amos said it best...

    Where is the Kenya part? This calls him black Irish...

    Also, that birth certificate is suspect. Not saying it's fake, just that it was incredible timing that he released it when he knew he had Bin Laden, virtually to the day. Either he is Irish and he has an @$$ made of shamrocks, or....

    There is a big difference in saying a white president looks like a monkey and a black president looks like a monkey. If you don't understand that, not sure what to tell you.

    Uhhh... Go back and read this thread. NOBODY claimed our current President looks like a monkey. He was using this as a comparison of people making fun of political figures. The picture posted here was of President Obama dressed as a leprechaun (sp) Read the whole post before you go freaking out on people.

    Aaaaand we have our first knee-jerk reaction charge of racism. I guess this is as clear a sign as any that election season is upon us

    Ken....are your serious about the B.C. being suspect? I mean your entitled your opinion, but the "birthers" still left out there need to be admitted into an asylum for a type of paranoid schizophenia---along with alot of the people who are looking to be raptured.

    No, don't worry guys, I wasn't reacting to the original post about the Irish thing. It was to this specific entry: "Seriously, this isn't funny?? How about all the comparisons between George W and a monkey? Was that funny? Can we do that with this president? Well I'm not gonna go there any further..."

    At BOTH of you: Are you fûcking kidding me? PLEASE tell me you're joking.

    To Laker - Now you're just getting pathetic! It's one thing to debate a political issue, but to intentionally grab a single element of a JOKE and get ridiculously offended is entirely petty and childish - yes, I said childish. That is not meant as a simple jab; I mean that I literally view your actions as those of a child with nothing better to do but perpetuate drama for attention. PLEASE grow up, at least in this regard.

    To Geno - Really, so now you're advocating a double standard? I understand the point you're trying to make here, but all you're really doing is excusing one behavior in favor of another. If YOU want to view things as racial, fine, but don't assume that everybody else shares your point of view - they don't, any more than everybody shares mine. I understand you were coming from the the other side of this equation, but either way in this instance you are making the same kind of argument that one does when comparing white discrimination to black discrimination, in that it's 'just not the same'.

    So many times I bite my tongue reading threads in this forum, because I know in all reality it makes no difference what my input is, but in this case I am just flabbergasted at the kind of response an entirely lighthearted joke has caused here.

    First off I never said I was offended. Where did you read that? Secondly you can think I am pathetic if you wish, I can't stop you and don't care to try, it is only your opinion after all. You comparing me to a child is also just your opinion and as you never stated why, just what you thought... I won't bother to respond to that point.
    Why did my response to him get your panties in such a knot anyway? Some MAY find the "birther" issue still relevant (if it ever was) and some may find jokes about it funny. SOME may not. I include myself in that category as well as other posters did. You just selected two out of us to respond to in this fashion. If my view of funny is different from yours then I'm OK with that and I can express that without resorting to silly name calling. Why can't you Hays?
    I actually thought my question to him was funnier then his "joke" and I said I thought that the picture was funny too. Maybe you need to lighten up yourself. I tried to explain over and over but you either missed it or chose to ignore it. At any rate I'm done with this silliness.

    Wow, did he ever ! I'm sure feeling the heat now Joey.

    I was going to respond more to your post, but I decided to check your bio, saw your age, and just decided against it.
  • Joeyjoe21_8Joeyjoe21_8 Posts: 2,048
    Wow...seriously? my age is a factor now for making just a funny, bs post about my good friend Hays that I hang out with weekly?

    Well of course Joey.. Didn't you realize that some on this forum think of their age as a fortress, a shield? Instead of recognizing that you can learn from all walks of life, it seems some believe in self-superiority based upon age and/or other factors.

    To Laker.. I recognize you said you're 'done with this silliness', but I reckon you'll probably still read this comment. If it makes you feel better to assume no logic in my opinion, by all means have at it. I explained my point clearly, and there is a difference between 'petty name calling' and legitimate opinion based on interaction and experience - the latter is exactly where I'm coming from. Your response was simply to backpedal...well, sure why not. I'm genuinely sorry you seem to consider yourself superior because of this (and apparently your age), but hopefully something at some point will open your eyes.
