Obama the douche-bag.

Obama closes the White House tours that were run by VOLUNTEERS. He's blaming it on the Sequester

The White House has canceled tours until further notice, the White House Visitors Office confirmed, citing sequester cuts.

Tours will continue through Friday, March 8. All tours for March 9 and onward have been canceled and will not be rescheduled due to “staffing reductions resulting from sequestration,” the office says.
“We very much regret having to take this action, particularly during the popular Spring touring season,” the office’s statement reads.
Some Republicans are skeptical.

“They just jumped the sharquester,” said John Hart, a spokesman for Sen. Tom Coburn (R-Okla.). Coburn has long highlighted ways the federal government could cut back on what he considers needless spending. But in this case, he’s opposed to the White House’s decision.
“It’s clearly a PR ploy,” Hart said. “They can tour the country on the taxpayer’s dime but can’t allow taxpayers to tour the White House? Seriously?”
Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.), agreed. “This decision appears to be purely political in nature rather than being in the best interest of the American people,” he said in a letter to Obama.
The White House has been highlighting cuts from the sequester in order to put pressure on congressional Republicans to compromise on ending tax loopholes.
“We are going to manage it as best we can, try to minimize the impacts on American families, but it’s not the right way for us to go about deficit reduction,” President Obama said Monday.
Not every administration claim has held up. Our Factchecker dinged Education Secretary Arne Duncan for saying over the weekend that teachers are already being laid off thanks to the sequester, and Obama himself for saying janitors in the Capitol will get a pay cut.
House Republicans introduced a bill Monday that would avoid a government shutdown at the end of the month and shift some spending cuts while leaving in place the $85 billion spending reduction that went into effect March 1.

Be very careful you are dealing beyond gifted, genius level IQ here! Be prepared for a brilliant response. Something along the lines of swallowing a 10" dick I am just the average person so when I read that reply I thought it was childish. However when someone with an IQ score of 159 says something like that I just assume it has meaning I cannot grasp. Heck I am pretty sure Frankie knows much more about swallowing dicks than I do. I do not have a IQ of 159 and have never swallowed a dick so he has me beat twice~

I worked with this guy who claimed he was a member of Mensa.

When I trained him I told him you might want to keep a folder to write down some of this information it is a lot to learn. He said "I can remember it all without notes."

I had to tell him things over and over finally, I would tell him "I thought you could remember all this." Mostly I would tell him you could figure it out you're so smart and I'm not and just leave him hanging. Misc. file issue type of solving problems all the time. I grew tired of bailing out the self proclaimed genius.
I was glad when he went to a different shift.

You see what I mean? This is not the retort of a hyper intelligent human being or one that uses rationale over emotionally driven vitriol. He honestly could be an idiot savant, but I sincerely doubt that Frankie ever registered above a 128 unless they had some sort of grading on the curve abstract working for him.

Thanks for the laughs Frankie. If you told me your IQ broke apart in midair and you ended up with only half I would readily believe you~

1- There are different schools of thought here. Some say memory has little to do with IQ.

2- This guy may or may not have been empty-claiming. But one example does not make others' 'claims' invalid.

3- I know (thru my son who IS a MENSA member, of another member who has ADHD.

3- There ARE people with high intelligence out there and we meet them in our everyday lives without even realizing. Did you realize that mere actor James Woods has an IQ of over 180? He never attempted to split the atom, did he?

4- I have NEVER boasted about some IQ reading I registered in college. So many years have past and so many things have happened in my life since. It is just the pathetic overreaction of some posters here, when the subject was brought up in passing, that made it an issue.

Side note:

Hey Comrade Shitsprayer, engineer Philip Emeagwali has an IQ of 190. And HE IS BLACK!!!!... Why don't you chew on THAT for a while.

No. It's the retort of a reasonably intelligent person talking to posters here in the language they understand. God knows I have tried more civil language here over the years and it has backfired. Adaptation is a function of (some) intelligence.

If your language and syntax is some sort of attempt to marry a common denominator with those who throw insults instead of data and stimulating thought, mission achieved.

“Past” as an adjective

The first definition which the OED gives for past as an adjective is “Gone by in time; elapsed; done with; over.” For example:

“The days for mourning are now past.”


I'm right. You are wrong. Your "Oops, I ****ed up" is accepted, Pat.

Flushie, nobody here believes you have a high IQ. In fact, most people here think you have a very low IQ.

That's the truth, Flushie. Deal with it. or not.

It is not overreacting Frankie it is just people having some fun at your expense. It is quite humorous to see you respond with high school level smack. Your son might very well be a member. There are three possibilities, he is not and you are full of shit, he is and his mother cheated on you or he is adopted~
