What a shame. Not many people watched Obama say he’s gonna do something extremely illegal to raise federal minimum wage.

Or maybe people are done of being fed shit.

Still, that’s more than 33 million deadheads. I simply can’t imagine watching that thing.

With a steady decline since inauguration, "Barry's Fables" was the least watched SOTU in decades.

I never look at Obumbo on TV or internet. The sight of him makes me want to puke.

~~~33.3 Million~~~

33.3 Million people were stupid enough to watch the thing?

Why? Any rerun of “Gilligan’s Island” would have been far better time spent.

Although B. Hussein Obama has an aversion to taking credit for his abundant failures, lies, and criminal acts, B. Hussein did a credible job of describing just what his failures were in last night’s State of the Obamanation Failed Union Speech.

B. Hussein waxed eloquent on his description of how the Keynesian “Prime the Pump” stimulus theory of economics has failed without ever mentioning Keynes, quantitative easing, Fed Balance sheet, or economic stimulus.

It was a masterful slight of hand speech, worthy of B. Hussein’s reputation as a consummate lying, con-artist, (pardon the redundancy).

Now that Commie Obama has been forced to admit that Communism (Mandatory Universal Federal Medical Insurance Tax, aka Obamacare), Economic Stimulus, Fed-controlled low interest rates, scandals, recitative orders, and Constitutional violations have made the last 5 years a living Hell for The Middle Class in America, the question I have is as follows:

“Who in the RINO Wing of the Republican Party has learned NOT to repeat what B. Hussein has proven for 5 years to be failed Federal Government policy?”

Yes, BJ Clinton's decline started after he wagged his finger in our faces and said, "I want to say one thing to the American people. I want you to listen to me. I'm going to say this again: I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Miss Lewinsky."

Americans don't like liars, and Obama and Clinton are liars. Now don't ask me why a proven liar like Hillary can be so popular because I don't ave that answer. :-P

Coincidently, it was running last night during the SOTU. I was tuned to it!

That’s a nice shot. Everyone kind of highlighted with white and sparkling all everywhere.

I don’t believe I’ve ever watched an entire sotu, about 5 minutes is the max I can stand no matter who is giving it. Utterly boring.

The absolute “put me to sleep speaker” I’ve ever heard (not sotu) was Henry Kissinger.

Recorded Downton Abbey from Sunday just for the purpose of watching during the SOTU.

For the fanciful idea, that ‘bitcoin’ might not play out too well in a SHTF vs. biteable ‘two-bits’, I let that play out, elsewhere. Hope it was fin for you.

Meanwhile, playing Silent Hunter III, in a Type XXI u-boat, 6 tubes fore, none aft, 24 fish onboard, no deck gun except flak turrets, yes, turrets, 17 knots submerged down to 150 meters (490 feet)(red zone). Sort of a “Thor’s Hammer” design.
