No doubt about it, that boy is stoned.
Would have been funnier if he was sucking the life out of a bong, though.
Never touched the stuff myself, but a fair number of my friends did back in the day (hey, it was college in the '70s), and after a long session with Mary, they looked just like Barry-O does here. Feelin' no pain.
This bothers me far less than Barry's friendship with Bill Ayers and Rev. Wright. What I don't like is his dishonesty. Why can't he just admit that he toked some, even liked it, but outgrew it, like my friends did? I'd be willing to cut him some slack. Who hasn't done stupid things when they were young? I sure did. Hell, I even voted for Carter. Once.
true dat Daphne. Would bring a whole new meaning to the word "tokemaster". Personally I had to stop partaking of the herb when my life got to the point that I required motivation and $ to accomplish responsible stuff. Real responsibilities = major buzz kill.
Forget the spliff, the clothes are what worry me. We just elected the maraca guy from KC and the Sunshine Band.
This is really great. As they say, it takes one to know one. Those pictures tell quite a story, your narative tells it all. What more can I say.
Boy, is he in for a surprise at his first meeting with the joint chiefs.
Very, very funny Gagdad Bob...
Yes, it's obvious that the creeper has moved up from the base of his skull, over the top of his head, and affixed a perma-grin to his face.
Stretch, right out of your skin.
I like his hat. We shall start a new craze, and sell Obama "reefer hats"
Great, now that these have surfaced, he'll have to drop the hammer on anyone who does anything stronger than a wine cooler, to prove that he's not "soft on drugs."
It's very reassuring that President Elect Obama is consistent. He didn't give a flip about breaking the law then and he doesn't care about playing the system now.
I've got to suppose "ere" was said at least once during the photo shoot.
Did you know John and his girlfriend Christine?
I was the "minister" at their wedding. Ask me some time.
Finally, photos of Obama that seem "real". If I'd seen these before the election I might have been more motivated to vote for him!
It's really pathetic how so many Obama voters have some vision that he's a dedicated pothead and will give the drug-challenged community what they are looking for. Maybe you guys are the real wankers.
For the record, he is the next President of the United States, and the oath that he is required to take demands that he enforce all the laws, whether he personally approves of them or not. If you want to change the law, elect someone else to Congress.
Thank you, Pink Pig, for sharing your extensive and deep knowledge of how the Republic functions.
Unfortunately, Pig, though "doing what you're told" is the easiest road to travel, had our founding fathers followed that road, we'd all be eating bad food and talking with funny accents.
Though Congress does in fact pass and rarely repeal laws, the President does have a great deal of influence on that congress on what he chooses to champion. This is particularly true when the two branches are of the same party as they are now.
I think our drug laws are silly at best, cruel and unusual at worst. 20 years for smoking pot is, well, un-American.
Roll roll roll a joint
Pass it down the line
Take a toke, enjoy the smoke
It'll blow your freakin mind.
(repeat 100 times, to the tune of row row row your boat)
Obama might have to find a new dealer that can supply the White House.
As a viper-in-retirement (age 60, San Francisco Bay Area, you figure out what I was doing) I can only marvel at the clarity, pertinence, and methodical case-building of this wonderful piece.
And kudos to gagdad!
"I have been in rooms in Paris where the leaders of the Columbia student protests of 1968 stuffed up all the windows and doors of a cheap hotel room and lit an entire kilo on fire"
Why? Out of papers, couldn't find an apple or a coke can or a pen or a piece of foil? How old were you guys at the time like 12 years old or something? "What should we do with it Gerard?". "Let's just light the whole thing on fire!". "Neato!". I'm guessing you stole the kilo from one of your parents stash. Am I right?
I'm kidding you but seriously if I could only have back all the shit I wasted because I was flush at the time I could buy myself something nice. Like a Ferrari or a McMansion. Oh well, no regrets. If I could remember it I'm sure I had some good times back in the day.
Obama feely admits to using pot and even cocaine when younger in his book. This is nothing new.
I smoke two joints in the morning.
I smoke two joints at night.
I smoke two joints at the video games,
and at every 10,000 points ...
As a "one hit" wonder, I think he may just be a cheap date ...
Gaghdad, you are the man.
waltj, he did admit it, in one of his books. It's long been known he used to be a stoner; it's just now that we finally get the photographic evidence.
Nice find on the soundtrack. I've put the link in the post.
I knew I voted for him for a reason. He reminds me of me except for the hat. I dig the hat. . .
"I used to smoke marijuana. But I'll tell you something: I would only smoke it in the late evening. Oh, occasionally the early evening, but usually the late evening - or the mid-evening. Just the early evening, midevening and late evening. Occasionally, early afternoon, early midafternoon, or perhaps the late-midafternoon. Oh, sometimes the early-mid-late-early morning. . . . But never at dusk." Steve Martin
Nice hat. Right.
In that day (I'm the same age as BHO) I would've been pummeled by my pals for wearing a hat like that. Who was I, a pimp wannabe?
What a poseur.
(But hey, maybe the photo chick gave it to him for the shoot.)
I'll have to take your word for it, Mr. VdL. I was raised as a good Catholic girl.
However, there is a point to the "opiate of the masses" scenario. How does anyone think Castro has stayed in power so long? I must write about my trip to Cuba some day, after it is no longer illegal to admit it.
The whole pot-head in the White House thing hasn't worked out so well.
But I see nothing in the Constitution to allow the Federal Thugs prohibiting any locally grown vegetation.
Ahhh, he's now being paid to keep the shit illegal. That's all. At the bottom of the matter Barry is a fucking whore, like all the rest of Proggs.
Damn I hate Proggs, Bush Proggs and Obama Proggs all the same.
Don't Barrack that joint, my friend
Pass it over to me
Don't Barrack that joint my friend
Pass it over to me
O-o-o-o-obama hijacked one
Just like the other one
He's been intercepting
And I still haven't got a hit
The table people were also friends of mine.
Listen! This was purportedlyBarack Obama's promise prior to the last election. Have we seen any progress as far as renewable energy goes?
Enjoyed studying this, very good stuff, appreciate it. "Nothing happens to any thing which that thing is not made by nature to bear." by Marcus Aurelius Antoninus.
