Rodeo clowns are particularly not pansies.
Normal people run *away* from angry bulls.
Some presidents are more equal than others.
Did he violate a specific law? If he did not then he could sue them for tortious interference with business (imo ianal).
But he can’t take being ribbed for our pleasure.
LOL, do ya think?
who has the video?
I have not run towards a *bull* but when I was a kid, I ran towards a very nasty milk cow that was trying to kill my little dog.
That’s the only situation in which I personally do something like that..;D
The article says that the Missouri State fair is subsidized by the state in an amount in excess of $500,000 a year. Presumably the state has given the Missouri State fair the power of police over the grounds and other arrangements which make affair at least a quasi governmental operation. There is no place in America for censorship on behalf of the sovereign, especially by the sovereign.
The essence of that idea was enshrined in the Supreme Court's opinion New York Times vs. Sullivan, which protected the media even when it libels those who have not even attained the exalted position of sovereign, merely because they are celebrities.
We now have in a companion thread the story of a poor Swiss shopgirl being harassed because Oprah Winfrey, with her multibillion-dollar power of the press, says she was slighted. The companion article reveals that the shopgirl says that Oprah simply misunderstood what was said, not unlikely when there is a language barrier. But the point is we have now so institutionalized African-American sensitivity that we have created a monster. The subjective reaction of sensitive African-Americans should never be elevated over the Constitution of the United States.
Black Celebrities like Oprah Winfrey and especially black presidents like Barack Obama should not be occasions for the distortion of my birthright-or yours.
Males/Females/transgendereds, we didn't care, we were outta there.
My gramma used to kick my and my cousin’s butts for ‘bull riding’ the beef calves.
I guess steers could sorta be considered transgendered.
Only in Amerika. Don’t piss off the dictator!
Now at 2602 “likes”.
Gotta love it.
The won’s minions love social networking.
Wonder if they’ll love this?
Well, truth be told, we were most concerned with avoiding the cow pies and heading down to jumping the fence to get to the “swamp”.(wetlands for the younger generation)
That's GROSS....(based on a demented mind..)
His Arrogance’s ego bruises easily. Luckily for him, his sniveling spineless lackeys were there to save the day.
That's EXACTLY my point.
Oprah wants to be the next Leni Reifenstahl. It’s her Heil deer Fuehrer film.
I remember someone else that got a similar reaction for posting a charactiture ...
