    Many businesses prohibit employees from wearing political support buttons so as not to alienate a portion of their customers. It is simple business.

    You have to be careful what humor one uses in these settings. Asking the crowd if they want to see President of the USA ran over by a bull is a little over the top.

    Am sorry you have a hard time understanding this. Write to the Missouri State Fair Commission if you need more help.

    Educate all of us. Just how do bulls think? LOL. And the other night, what did that bull think about the Obama dummy? LOL. Come on now, if the president could have been injured or killed, one of you liberals might have to convince the bull to go testify in court. It's important we all know what he was thinking. LOL.

    keep digging. this is great fun.
    Seems like this is normal in rodeo's....

    The big white gate flew open. The bull came out bucking. The rider flopped

    from side to side and the bullfighters held back, letting the bull make his moves until the rider dropped off. Licciardello crouched in a heavily padded barrel, a human target should the bull decide to charge. Hawkins waited near the barrel, holding his big inner tube. A dummy with a George Bush mask stood beside the clown, propped up by a broomstick.

    After Bush's first four years, I became somewhat displeased with his performance. Homeland Security was a big one for me....we had the NSA, the CIA, and the FBI.....we pretty much had our bases covered...if they wanted to start a joint task force and needed personnel....great, hire them...but don't create a new bureaucracy. But overall, I think he did a respectable, if not admirable job with 9/11...that was a tough situation with the entire nation in mourning and demanding justice.

    But, I digress....Bush's second election....I voted for Kerry. By that time, we were deep into Iraq and treating Afghanistan as the red headed stepchild, that was the actual homebase for Bin Laden to carry out 9/11. Then there was Katrina. My sister lived in Louisiana at the time....up North in the Alexandria area. She's an RN and took a three week unpaid leave to help the folks down in New Orleans....the stuff she told me was horrific. She also told me first hand information about the hard hit 9th Ward that I never even thought about.

    The homes in the 9th ward were mostly built by factory and industrial workers who retired in the 60's, 70's and 80's.....as they died off, they willed those properties to their kids. By the time Katrina hit....those good paying factory and industrial jobs were long gone and you had a lot of people living in their childhood homes with little income to spare for things such as.....HOMEOWNER'S INSURANCE. If you go down to the 9th Ward to this very day....it's still a ghost town.

    That got me thinking about my political affiliation....but what sealed the deal for me was a little later on....with a slur among GOP members. That slur was RINO. That just plain pissed me off and was the beginning of the extremism I see in the Republican Party today. That was when I filled out a new registration card and went to the Democratic Party. I still vote my conscience and not with the Party line.....but I lean more towards Dems now than I ever have.
    Although I'm a registered Democrat, I tend to vote my conscience as well. I voted for Reagan (2nd term) and GWB (2nd term), Clinton (twice) and Obama (twice; my vote almost went to Romney the 2nd time, but in the end I just didn't think I could trust him). We both agree about how the Dept. of Homeland Security should have been a merging of NSA, FBI and CIA; we didn't need a new intelligence bureau.

    I can understand some of the positions the GOP has taken of late, but right now overall I think the party has largely gone out of their collective minds!

    Who looks foolish again?

    About 14,000,000 results (0.25 seconds)

    And to answer your question "how many rodeo events allude to a real person rather than the rodeo clown"? Lots of them. Not all, but enough that everybody always gets the joke except for a bunch of twisted liberals.
    Still not getting it eh? We're not talking about the threat to the rodeo clown.

    The comedy show you and others are putting on is better than sat night live ever thought about being.
    So you can't answer my question. At all. You don't even try.

    FYI, it's a bad idea to try to insult someone when anyone can copy paste their claim into Google and get the exact same results.

    Still running with the liberal line eh? After I posted my ballot? Quality of new users here leaves much to be desired.

People honor prayer requests in their local church all the time usually on behalf of members of the congregation, friends, co-workers or family members. My church even sends out prayers for our country's leaders routinely. I see this as no different.

Not a peep now on the same issues from the same people. And that's not even counting what Obama had to say about Bush.

    What's good for the goose, is good for the gander. Even if the gander gets a whole lot less of it.
    But this rodeo thing is far different from members of Congress disagreeing with the President's policies or his decisions as CinC. Two completely different things!

    Believe it or not, I pray for the safety of Obama every day. But I don't pray to him...

    I knew that's what you were getting at the moment I saw this video post. You're completely wrong in your assessment.

    The kid, "Steven", wasn't praying TO President Obama; he was praying FOR him. He said so right at the beginning of the video. I know the intro is alittle distorted, but if you listen you'll hear him say "this prayer is 'for' President Barack Obama"...kinda like a kid would pray to Santa Clause after Christmas.

    The simple fact is that the clown was working as an employee of the Missouri State Fair Commission and one has to abide by their rules and standards. This is seen in many companies. I just don't think the state fair commission wants to have any of their employees or contracted employees being risque or any way offending people. They actually want "everyone"to come and spend money at their fairs.
    I don't see anything wrong if he performs his Obama mask routine at other venues as comedians make fun of politicians all the time. But this was the wrong venue.

    Is it really that hard to understand?
    For some people, it certainly is.
