Skip to comments.Facebook/ Survivors of The Purple Tunnel of Doom (really funny)

This is a group dedicated to all those with purple, blue or other tickets to the inauguration who braved the early morning cold (and the crowds) only to end up in the proverbial or literal Purple Tunnel of Doom. LINK
"In the next Inauguration, why don't we make sure that this gets outsourced to a professional company that knows what they are doing. Congress, the Capitol Police and the Metropolitan Police could be replaced with a professional management team and renta cops. It would be a great improvement. And you could do it at a much less expensive cost."
Gary, Gary, Gary. You poor fool. This is the best these clowns can do. Get used to it.
Like most of the thousands of loyal supporters turned away from the gates on the morning of Jan. 20, what we had hoped would be the most exciting day of our lives, the culmination of a year of hard work and great expense, became the most frustrating . We spent 5 hours in the idiots/honest folks BLUE LINE to NOWHERE. Our Inauguration experience was watching the gates slam closed in our face, neither seeing nor hearing the ceremony. We met not a single figure of authority to reign in the thousands of gate crashers, nor a volunteer who could have explained what we learned hours later: the security machine quit working for more than 90 minutes, so there was no possibility we'd get in. If we had known, we could have made it to the Mall and at least watched on tv. The ultimate irony was seeing pictures of all the celebs comfortably sitting in the front rows watching the proceedings we never got to see, while we, the people who put Barack in office, were on the sidelines!!!!!!!"
Gosh! Poor Baby!! Doesn't your heart just ache for poor Gary? All that hard work and nothing to show for it.
Get used to it Gary, the fascists are in charge now. You little people are an annoyance at best.
"My heart is broken for you guys. I'm so glad no one died, but it's such a sadness to have spent money and vacation time for nothing. The only thing I can do is pledge not to complain about the extreme cold or the scary wait at the exits. At least I was above ground."
ROFL - my heart is broken also. DHIMMIS.
Hey there is hope for Gary, he is figuring out that privatizing is most likely better than gubmint incompetence.
And Gary wants these people in charge of his health care.
what a hoot
If you were hoping for the competence of the free market to be allowed to find and solve our problems, you voted for the wrong guy. This "Tunnel" incident, with ticket-holders getting shut out and gate-crashers getting in, leaving tons of trash in their wake, is a harbinger of the way 0's people work.
As the liberals like to say, you and a lot of other people need to "make better choices."
Democrats running things = what could possibly go wrong.
I would say the millions of people projected to attend should have been their first clue.
"We'd made a new friend and I tried to hold onto her hand as we went through the gate. "Don't let go!" she cried. But there was no way. The crush of the crowd from behind and on the sides was too great. Her hand slipped out of mine and I didn't see her again. There was a child on his father's shoulders to my right screaming "Don't drop me! Please don't drop me!" fearing he would trampled if he fell. I finally understood how people are killed in riots and stampedes."
Aren't the Wal Mart black Friday crowds wunnerful?
Hmm. Haliburton or Blackwater?
"It is a travesty that so many people were negatively affected but the real story is that we can no more trust our city organizers to coordinate and assist the public today than what we had in Katrina - it's a frightening thought."
Gary, no you can’t.
That’s what happens when you vote for a false messiah.
It does make a nice mataphor for what’s happened to the country.
These people are the sheep, willing to be led right into the slaughterhouse, complaining they didn’t have a better view.
A new FReeper term? Living in Obama's Amerika is like walking down the Purple Tunnel of Doom?
how do you reason with people who think like this?
He became so depressed he dropped a class? Took time off school?
SCHOOL JUST STARTED!
That’s really helpful for his future isn’t it?
Maybe if he writes to Barak, Barak will manage to fix his grades so he can pass his classes without having to attend.
