    Or is that your point?

    You see the US President was not really there. It was just a mask. There was a dummy. It wasn't really President Barrack Obama. It was all pretend. It was a joke. Entertainers sometimes make political jokes. There was no conspiracy by the clown or anyone else to kill or maim the President. The real BHO was not at the rodeo.

    Maybe someone else can explain this better.

    Yes, you are formidable.
    Glad to see you stand with the group of people who think civil society shouldn't be civil.

    Again, no one ever argued it was actually Obama. Why is that so hard for people to get through their brains?

    Yes, you are sharp. I can see why you never lose an argument.

    He should have done the job he was paid to do, as he was insructed to do it. That's usually how hundreds of millions of Americans keep their jobs.
    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.

    Please explain how you type out "It is irrelevant what a bull thinks" and not believe a bull actually thinks? This ought to be good.
    Your grasps of English is disturbing. I said it doesn't matter what the bull thinks. How does that mean I think what the bull don't think? And Bulls do think. Do you think a bull has the cognitive functions of an amoeba? Where the hell are you even going with this?

    And for the record, no need to tell lies about me, I wouldn't say what a bull thinks is relevant or irrelevant. Are you smart enough to know why? At this point, I'm betting no.
    *sigh*

    Enjoy your second infraction.

    Where's the news articles? LOL. They didn't make it.
    You do realize you asked for news articles that didn't make the news?

    I showed you plenty of gags that never made the news showing that making fun of the President doesn't warrant attention. Until you start alluding that the President should be injured/killed.

It's easy to see which group you fit into.

    The clown never suggested Obama the real life president be run over by a bull.
    Is that why it made the news when so many other gags about Obama that doesn't involve an entertainer at a state event suggesting he be injured or killed don't get the same attention?

    You won't answer that.

    The clown suggested Obama, the dummy, get run over by a bull. Kids of all ages at rodeos understand this when they see this skit. That's why they laugh. Same with Adults, exceptions being the recent brain dead. Ask yourself why you can't separate fact from fiction because I don't know why.
    Enjoy your infractions. Especially after Helix explicitly told the threat to cut it out.

    Wasn't it you who said "It's amazing how you don't find an entertainer at a state fair riling up the crowd in a suggestion that Obama should be run down isn't offensive to the office itself".

    You see the clown "wasn't riling up the crowd" to suggest that the real Obama should be run down. He was referring to a dummy, not the real Obama, although I can see where this could lead to confusion. The crowd wasn't 'riled up' either. They were, for the most part, laughing.

    This bit of clown humor seems to have whizzed right over your head.

    We're going to have to disagree on this one. You really believe he wasn't at all alluding to the character represented by the clown? That the clown didn't meaning Obama in any way, shape, or form period? If that's true, why did he wear the mask at all, if he didn't mean Obama at all?

    Let's see you stretch to the point of absurdity.

    That's a great point, but on the other hand if the bull wants to do you personal injury then it would start to matter.
    I showed you plenty of gags that never made the news showing that making fun of the President doesn't warrant attention. Until you start alluding that the President should be injured/killed.
    I was unsuccessful in trying to explain that the clown wasn't wanting the real president of the United States to be injured/killed.

    Perhaps someone else can manage the job.

    Oh I see. You think that because the clown was wearing a mask rather than showing his face in public that he was up to no good.

    That's an interesting point that I never really considered.
