Constitutional republic tribunal time. Every democrat in the house and senate should explain this flip-flop. Everyone who voted for the Patriot Act, FISA, NDAA should explain theirselves. This government is to remain shutdown until we get some answers. We can start with you, before you die, poppy bush and dick fucking cheney.

False bravado..... shaky lines on big letters. He is playing way above his game.

If you see the signatures of people like Elvis, who "knew" they were stars, there is a boldness and bigness/penache to their signatures.

This is a pretenders signature. 

Plus his real name is Mu-Barak Husein O'sorterobamao.....

Incdentally, Al-buraq, from which the name is derived, was the prophet's horse on his ride to the seventh heaven... and means lightening.

It's ALL in the name...

Al-Bur?q (Arabic???????‎ al-Bur?q "lightning") is a mythological steed, described as a creature from the heavens which transported theprophets. The most commonly told story is how in the 7th century, Al-Buraq carried the Islamic prophet Muhammad from Mecca toJerusalem and back during the Isra and Mi'raj or "Night Journey", which is the title of one of the chapters (sura), Al-Isra, of the Quran.

If Boenner had any balls (that doesn't sound the way I intended), he would read that statement into the record during a press clip, and say, "At least we agree on one thing".

And then roll around on the floor and laugh his ass off.

Asshats, all of them.

Bill Hicks was one of the most underrated comedian-philosophers of all time, IMO. He was very much in the George Carlin mold, but Hicks was far and away the one comedian to draw attention to the diabolical forces of marketing & advertising, and their devastating effects on society.

Anyone who is familiar with Big Pharma's complex and evil marketing strategy that is referred to as "astroturfing" understands how purposefully evil the advertising industry is.

Re the "shitty ass signature"

Either Obama has Parkinsons or his hand was shaking because he was laughing so hard when signing.

Note the big zero, not a continuous penstroke.

The Forbes article states Obama began to use an autopen when he was President, so this must be some sort of composite image, as I doubt he would have had use or need of one as a Senator. 

Either that or we have the makings of a good new conspiracy...

Outrageous what?  The signature or the statement?  As for the signature, it is simply childish.  The statement in the congressional record was probably written for him.  He doesn't know what he believes.  He simply does as he's told.  Got him elected-twice.  If you had a brain, you might begin to wonder, but alas, no.  You don't know what you you think, either, until Stephanopouluapuss or Diane Sawyerpenisandlaughed tells you so.
