They could always do satire on BO/BS and his fellow socialists abiding by the Constitution.

Freepers used to post Onion articles until the spoiled brats objected. Jim Robinson said, “Fine, goodbye”

"...We are plum out of satire."

May as well be. The Administratiion is about to declare satire to be activity against The People.

This isn’t serious, is it?

Our government is SATIRE.

There should be plenty to write about.

If it is true, I’ll miss them.

Unfortunately, the current flock of flocked foaming flecks in Washington feel that satirical writ is a suggestion or policy idea.

Have you heard about the anti-tea party democrat group...It is the Tax and Spend Party. Advocating higher Tax and More spending. The rallies feature welfare queens with signs like”Fork it over you racist pigs” and “Tax them now”.

I'd like to tell myself this is a BAD, BAD DREAM and I'll wake up with things back to normal. Each time, I think it can't get worse, and it does. We are on the brink of something VERY UGLY and the road back to normalcy ... might be too difficult ... . We are becoming another Argentina with the goal being another Zimbabwe.

I am deeply saddened to read of the demise of The Onion; but, since I read it on the interwebs, it must be true.

This would be the perfect time to take The Onion to “mainstream” news reporting. It would be a seamless transition.

As Hunter S. Thompson once said: “When the going gets weird, the weird turn Pro”. Washington, D.C. today is Alice’s Wonderland, where up is down and black is white and the Red Queen Pelosi is off with her head.

Hey, The Onion could always start publishing some REAL news, since no one in the MSM seems to be doing it.

I have a person calling me a bigot on a facebook page because of my satire. These people don’t understand what satire is. And they would really like to ban it.
