    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    I heard nothing about it until I saw the Fox Nation here making a big stink about what happened.
    Then that's a shame, and says a great deal about the US media.
    Whatever the reasoning behind his ban, I could not tell you, however as far as I can see, there was no nationwide outcry from "left wing loons."
    Wow! Despite watching the news and reading this forum you still don't know why he was banned?? And of course there would not be an outcry from the leftist loons. Obama is their guy and they are only too pleased, it seems, to have anyone who mocks him banned from their job for life.

    What is 'highly inappropriate" about making a joke about the US President??

    This clown brought politics where they didn't belong, he made his employers uncomfortable, so they fired him. The only reason it's news is because the extreme right will find anything to bitch and moan about if it gives them a chance to take a meaningless jab at the left. The extreme left did the exact same thing when Bush was president, proving that both parties are supported by stupid dildos.

    A ban from the Missouri State Fair sounds more like a reward than a punishment

    Politics don't belong in a state fair? Since when/who decides that?

    From my POV, it's not politics brought that made the issue hairy, but how/what actions specifically.

    Still, a LIFETIME ban?
    "Lifetime" bans are something that should be reserved for really heinous actions, not just making an employer uncomfortable once / IMO at least when it comes to publicly funded events there should be limits [not imposed by the government per-se] on how such things are issued. [but then the issue becomes HOW to do that]

    George Carlin got paid off and cancelled the first time he got fired from the Frontier Hotel - for saying "ass" - the year before he got fired for saying ****. And that wasn't even at a publicly funded place or fair, but at a private casino.

    Nationalism in high dosages may be hazardous to your health. Please consult a psychiatrist before beginning a regular regimen, and if feelings of elitism and douchbaggery continue, discontinue immediately before you become unable to do so on your own.

    You only find it offensive because it was Obama being mocked - you would certainly be singing a different tune if it was a conservative being mocked (which happens all the time without any repercussions).

    Freedom of speech and expression is a civil liberty and that freedom is being denied to this individual rodeo clown.

    It's really that ****ing simple.

    If it matters he was fired and banned...

    This clown has an epic lawsuit ahead of him and I hope he takes the taxpayers of Missouri for as much as possible..

    Yes. It's called The Constitution.
