Obama heading to Calif. to mingle with Steven Spielberg, raise money for Democrats – Washington Times

WASHINGTON — President Obama is traveling to California next week to raise money for the Democratic Party and receive a humanities award from film director Steven Spielberg.

Maybe we really should go to some sort of figurehead government, where we could make Obama king, (but with no power, like the British Monarchy) and then he could stumble around the country doing the only two things he does reasonably well:  raise money, and spend a lot of it on personal pleasure.

I mean, that’s what we really have anyway.  Valery Jarrett runs the country, while Obama preens and primps for the rubes.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.

    • …and a puppy-eater to boot – Li’l Barky is a natural two-fer, I tell ya.

      Next stop: Coronation – soon followed by(we could only hope)our newly-minted Crowned (Figure)Head being made every bit as subordinate – and thereby essentially-powerless and mostly-ignored – as are similar Crowned (Figure)Heads in the U.K.

      What’s not to like?

      Next, we could rework that pesky “Congress” thingy into – say – something called a “Parliament”, which could then convene and “form a Government”.

      ‘Course, we’d have to make a few alterations in that other pesky li’l thing, called the “Constitution” – but, there’s already a lot of people who want to make some pretty extensive changes to that old thing…so – no problemo, right?…

  1. Well if we are going back to an earlier time, let’s go middle eastern. Obama can be the leader, and all his advisers too, with the one caveat, they have to be eunuchs. We could even sell the rights to be the one wielding the castration knife.

    • Use a rubber band, not a knife. The pain lasts longer.

      (I can’t find it now, but I heard a podcast some time ago about a guy who went to help out on a sheep ranch. The rancher was castrating lambs by cutting the balls off. They’d bleat and carry on for a bit, then a few minutes later get on with their lives. The guy asked why the rancher wasn’t using a rubber band, the painless way that all the best people said was the way to do it. “Watch this,” the rancher said. He did the rubber band thing on the next lamb. It collapsed in pain. Hours later it was barely moving. It apparently would be like that for several days.)

        • No doubt in my mind whatsoever on that one – after all:

          1) As highly-experienced cat-and-dog spayers/neuterers, many of them would be quite knowledgeable about the relative degree of pain involved in different methods.

          2) Since a version of the “rubber-band method” is how many doctors “painlessly” treat human hemorrhoids* – most PETApunks would have first-hand knowledge – them being, after all…

          (*I will NOT detail just how I know this, but I can state with great certainty that, while less “disruptive” than other methods, the technique is not nearly as “painless” as doctors would have one believe…)
