Barney Frank Flips Out Over a Dollar (demands his senior discount)
Jammie Wearing Fool ^ | July 27, 2010 | JWF

Good grief. If this clown is going to whine and moan over a dollar discount for senior citizens, maybe he should just do like other seniors and retire.

Massachusetts Congressman Barney Frank caused a scene when he demanded a $1 senior discount on his ferry fare to Fire Island's popular gay haunt, The Pines, last Friday. Frank was turned down by ticket clerks at the dock in Sayville because he didn't have the required Suffolk County Senior Citizens ID. A witness reports, "Frank made such a drama over the senior rate that I contemplated offering him the dollar to cool down the situation."

Otherwise known as the "wrinkle cruise."

Barney, upon reaching his destination, surely could have earned the dollar back.
He needn’t have remained in the hole.
He could have gotten out of arrears.

Just like Kerry. This clown thinks he is better than everyone else. After years of being treated like a king with special privileges, he has developed a liberal elite attitude. He should come out of his privileged world and see what life is like for the subjects/taxpayers.

So, a true drama queen...

Because it doesn’t seem to relate to anything on some of the threads, and it’s just weird to see it show up on thread after thread.

The Pines is where there is a lot of anonymous sex between gay men.

This is like Paul Ryan bitching about the cover charge at Spearmint Rhino in Las Vegas. The media would slay Ryan but will not mention Bwany Fwank being in such a sordid place.

One dollar.

Isn't that what it costs to take a successful Wall Street trader and turn him into a suicidal maniac, while also taking a black street hoodlum and turning him into a Wall Street trader?

The article failed to mention that he was trying to pay with a $3 bill.
