When will Obama go to Dallas?

#1
Have any of the bookmakers started to quote on when somebody will top Obama, or would this be just a half-step over the 'bad taste' line?

Given how red some US necks are, plus their joy in owning and playing with firearms, I'd have thought his chances of making it through a full term are even lower than that of Broon admitting to a mistake.

Which weapon would be the most suitable for use today?

I believe that Oswald's Carcano is a tad too 'old school', and the Uzi that was used in the attempt on Reagan's life is only useful for short range.

I'd guess that today's militiaman/survivalist/conspricy theorist is most likely to go for a Kalashnikov type rifle, but I wouldn't be too surprised to see an AR15 type rifle, or even a sporting bolt action being used.

What about one of the trendy big bore jobs? A .50 cal rifle, just to make sure?

At the risk of joining the Arrse Pedant Regiment, Hinkley used revolver to hit Reagan. But I agree that the sport rifle is the most likely

You're quite right, my mistake. I was thinking of the Secret Service agent who had an ND after the attempt.

Haven't you been keeping up with events in the USA? Obama will not go to Dallas until the performance issues with body armour are resolved!

I wouldn’t want to see the SOB whacked because then he will be a martyr. Every Jr High School and ever road and every public building will be named after him for the next 50 years. They would build a memorial to him in Washington DC that would rival the Great Pyramids of Egypt and the Gardens of Babylon in size.

He will self destruct although the Liberal media will try to bail him out.

We need a commie every once in awhile to remind us that capitalism works. Both Carter and Clinton served that role very nicely.

Farking idiot Gator. However, KevinB does approve the murder of people who fail to tow his IRA / SF line so maybe he can give you tips on how to fund terrorism. He is a bit of an expert at it.

Yes, gator, unfettered capitalism has worked so well. :roll: Just look at the past eight years to see the results.
Capitalism has always worked fine. Most of those eight years we had low unemployment, low inflation and a high growth rate, despite the trillion dollar hit to our economy caused by 911.

What failed us recently was the government interfering in the requirements for credit. Banks were forced to give loans to people that had no means or intentions of ever paying it back. Government screws up just about everything it touches, doesn’t it?

The Liberal deficit spending and increased size of government by the NeoCon Bush Administration didn’t help any. Obama has already proposed an increase in the deficit and the cost of government greater than even the NeoCons did during the entire Bush administration.

Capitalism may not be perfect and it certainly offers the potential of abuse but it is far superior to Socialism. Socialism doesn’t work well anywhere and has failed miserably worldwide.

Americans are going to get a lesson in that failure in the next four years with Obama and his band of sleazy merrymen.

"Capitalism" is the name given by Marx to describe the economic activities of human beings left to their own devices. A much nicer, more acturate name is "Freedom."

I reckon that Obama will be the first pres. to commit suicide or just quit on the job. Once he discovers what the real world feels like.

If suicide; chances are he'll botch the job and end up looking like Michael Jackson for the rest of his life.

Unfettered capitalism has huge problems because humans are far more than economic beings, yet that is the only aspect of life that it addresses - close to the system that Thatcher and Reagan envisioned. It and globalisation often unleash amoral and anti-social forces while destroying long-standing communities, traditions, and cultures.

Great rebuttal, that. :wink:
