Rep. Barney Frank Causes Scene Demanding Discount (Frank Ferry Fare Fandango Fuss)

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." Frank made news last year when he was spotted looking uncomfortable around a bevy of topless, well-built men at the Pines Annual Ascension Beach Party.

Quite amazing, almost surreal. Farney Brank throws around billions and billions as if it were confetti, not to mention throwing the BS, and of course the "pages" he loves getting unto (I'm talking about the gossip "pages"), does "rings" around other politicians, who is singularly responsible for the very sorry financial state we're all in, and yet this buffalo-sized buffoon goes absolutely berserk over a buck.

H'mmm Maybe because it was young and virile.

He mocks tea partiers for being upset when he and his cronies spend America into oblivion. But that’s “other people’s money”, so Bawney doesn’t see what we’re upset about.

But refuse him a one dollar discount and he throws a hissy fit (or should that be sissy fit).

Frank's spokesperson confirmed to Page Six that his partner, James Ready, asked the ticket office for a regular ticket for himself and a senior ticket for Frank, "but was turned down because Frank didn't have a resident ID."

You would think they'd have the "ticket" business figured out by now....

I think Barney Frank is the one represenative I would not want to have a face to face encounter with. I would be afraid he would spray me while talking with that slobbering mouth. One can only imagine the toxic fluids that pie-hole contains.

What people don’t understand is, BARNEY FRANK DOESN’T CARE. He is not embarrassed. He is not ashamed. He could be caught having sex with a five-year-old boy in the middle of Times Square at high noon and HIS DISTRICT FULL OF PERVS WOULD STILL RE-ELECT HIM. He can do anything he wants, say anything he wants, and there will be no consequences. The Democratic Caucus has had several opportunities to stand up for decency and expel him him from Congress — the living with the hard-working homosexual prostitute on Capitol Hill situation comes to mind — but did nothing and will do nothing. This is a textbook example of corruption, Barney’s picture is at the top of the page and the Democratic Party IS ALL FOR IT. Decadence, thy name is Democrat.

Barney was heard to reply, “Well that just chaps my ass” when told he would not receive the senior discount on his ferry ride.

Too bad that the guy taking the tickets didn’t video the incident. It would have made the ticket guy a nice piece of change for the vid and we would all be laughing our butts off tight now seeing Barney’s Frank acting like the idiot we know he is.

“Barney Frank is and idiot. God is punishing us.”

Isaiah 3

1 See now, the Lord,
the LORD Almighty,
is about to take from Jerusalem and Judah
both supply and support:
all supplies of food and all supplies of water,

2 the hero and warrior,
the judge and prophet,
the soothsayer and elder,

3 the captain of fifty and man of rank,
the counselor, skilled craftsman and clever enchanter.

4 I will make boys their officials;
mere children will govern them.

5 People will oppress each other—
man against man, neighbor against neighbor.
The young will rise up against the old,
the base against the honorable.

6 A man will seize one of his brothers
at his father’s home, and say,
“You have a cloak, you be our leader;
take charge of this heap of ruins!”

7 But in that day he will cry out,
“I have no remedy.
I have no food or clothing in my house;
do not make me the leader of the people.”

8 Jerusalem staggers,
Judah is falling;
their words and deeds are against the LORD,
defying his glorious presence.

9 The look on their faces testifies against them;
they parade their sin like Sodom;
they do not hide it.
Woe to them!
They have brought disaster upon themselves.

10 Tell the righteous it will be well with them,
for they will enjoy the fruit of their deeds.

11 Woe to the wicked! Disaster is upon them!
They will be paid back for what their hands have done.

12 Youths oppress my people,
women rule over them.
O my people, your guides lead you astray;
they turn you from the path.

James Ready, “Ready”, a classically-degenerate homo name if I’ve ever heard one, right up there with Milk, as in Harvey, as Farney’s spokesperson, is what during the Cold War was referred to as a “news organ”. No one would disagree that he’s an organ of one kind or another, that’s for sure.

There was a time when a supposedly upstanding pillar of our government caught romping with men on a ferry to fairy island would be run out of town on a rail. Good thing he wasn’t a GOPer caught with a wide stance at an airport.
