Live From WalMart, Obama Discusses Minimum Wage In The Heart Of Silicon Valley - Live Feed

Tyler Durden's picture


In perhaps the most ironic telepromptering ever, President Obama is visiting a WalMart in the heart of the West Coast money bubble today - after attending a number of multi-thousand-dollar-per-plate fund-raisers in the last 24 hours - and intends to discuss minimum wage in Mountain View today (among the Maseratis and Lambos). As Walmart Pres & CEO Bill Simon notes, its the first time a sitting US President has visited a Walmart.

Fuck that filthy, lying, racist, communist pile of dogshit!


I'd also like to thank of the Liberatrian Voters who ensured Obama's two victories, by not voting, or voting for someone like Ron Paul, who was not even on the ballot.

Obama would not be President w/o YOU!

In my world, I prefer the greater of two evils.

Choosing the lesser of two evils is like coming in 2nd at the Indy 500.

May the bloody cunt above RevRex die in a fire.  The outright stupidity of the GOPers is astonishing.  Yes, 2 terms of McCain or 1 of Mitt Romney would have us on a better trajectory, I'm sure... /sarc

Ron Paul voters have not only principles, but the vision to see the dog and pony sho for what it is.  The cunt above posses neither.

I's be less irriteated if he was just troling.  But I'm sure he's a true believer in the valant struggle of John BONEr and Mitch McFucktard to save us from those evil socialists while taking every kickback imaginable.

Seriously, fuck you revRex.

+1000   At least someone is trying to break this false left right paradigm.  Will never happen without Ron Paul voters.  I voted for Gary though..

i did too. I was a ron paul supporter the whole time, still am, and up until shortly before the polls closed i was on the fence between not voting at all, writing in ron paul, or voting for gary johnson. In the end, I voted for gary because he was actually on the ballot, and the the way my states voting laws handle write ins, a write in for ron paul wouldn't even be counted. Since it would go unnoticed, i voted for gary just to say no to both parties. And there was a push towards the end to get 1 mil LP voters, which i thought would help send a message that we the people are fed up with both sides, and the false left right paradigm is not working on us any more. And you are corect, the GOP will not win another major election without the majority of Ron Pual supporters, and since most of us will never vote for a mccain or romney, they can't win when they put people like that up. Although I think those at the very top of the republican party would rather see obama or billary win than RP, since they do pretty much the same shit anyway, although they obviosly would never admit this. He was the only person polled to beat obama in a general election, since he funneled away so many independents and those on the left who are very anti-war, but they went with romney anyway. Serves them right.

Since this double-posted, let me take this extra opportunity to inform you that if you think voting is the most important way you can influence the future of this country and the limit of your expectation as a "citizen", you're a pretty crappy American.  Voting is about the least effective thing you can do.

A perfect backdrop to pick on inequality would have been right there in D.C. and he wouldn't have had to spend $ to move Air Force One one farking inch. But that, or NYC, or La Jolla would have forced his own supporters to confront it instead of letting them continue their Two Minutes Hate against "privileged" white male tech workers so the Fed and Goldman and the contractors can tell themselves they aren't the problem. "But we're Democrats! We're for diversity and the little guy!"

My wife and I rode our bikes past his motorcade last night. Didn't even know he was in town.

My bike is home-made and looks like a SR-71. I felt just like a terrorist.

It was epic.

Big engines in the back. The thing is wicked fast -- for a bicycle.

Anyone happens to be in the SF Bay Area the weekend of May 17th can meet me and the "Blackbird Super Cruiser" at the Makers Faire, San Mateo Fair Grounds.

So much awesomeness, you'll think you've been fed to a tiger.

A pair of 1kW DC motors. That's a 15" rim from a car or truck I found behind the bike trail. Knocked out the flange, welded on some custom spokes, and bolted on the motors. The whole thing is 2kW total at 48 volts. Barely street legal, but barely is just right.

Nope, the cops never bug me. Was pulled over by the highway patrol one time, but he'd made a mistake. Thought I was a custom Buell chopper or something without plates, so that was fun.

That is just a make your day kind of story there Cougar. 2 kW on a bike frame, must be fast.

Nice, I'll post  my own projects pictures sometime also.

So the pedals are for recharging the batteries?

How long does it take the wife to put a full charge on them?

Fri, 05/09/2014 - 18:23 | 4744982 cougar_w
cougar_w's picture

There are two batteries, big LiFePo industrial grade 48 volt, used in parallel. About $750 each.

The pedals are just like on a bike, they drive the rear wheel via (a lot of) link chain. Pedalling extends range and provides a little extra power. And it needs functioning pedals to qualify as a bicycle. But you don't have to pedal if you don't want to, it just goes.

Wife? She won't stand within 10 feet of the thing.

As a rule, it clears intersections. I'm not even joking. In motion it looks evil.  People just stay completely out of the way.
