They thought they were buying a piece of history but many customers now say they were ripped off.
Because of welfare we have exceeded the “there’s a sucker born every minute” rate by a wide margin.
This made my day. There is one born each minute. Save them—they may be valuable someday just like my old WIN button from the Ford Days. Soon, all too soon, all the Obama Junk will be in the Dollar Stores and Thrift Shops.
Those selling these coins know better than anyone that “a liberal and their money is soon parted”.
Just pointed out for comments..
LOL! thanks for putting it up.
Oh, man, me too! I switch the channel away from anything Zer0-related, and those commercials have got to be the longest commercials evah!
As to the idjits who buy this junk, they deserve what they get.
“I got one and going give it to my father, the lifetime republican, as a gag gift for his birthday.”
Does he shoot skeet? He may find the plate useful after all!
As I went to the link to the full article and saw an image of the somber older couple who were so sure they were entitled to take money out of my and my friend's, family's , and coworker's pockets, I thought, "I will never see anything on FR that will make me feel so happy again".
This article comes close.
Vindictive? Spiteful? Whatever! The people who voted for that worthless POS BHO did so out of greed (they think they are getting freebies) or blatant stupidity ("always vote for the Democrat because they're for the little guy", white guilt, they thought it was 'kewl' to vote for him-bandwagon voters, etc). I dare say most of the buyers of BHO memorabilia are those who voted for that creature. I believe BHO will either destroy the USA, or at least damage it irreparably. So am D****d if I won't rejoice at every hardship, major or minor, that befalls his supporters.
Anyone who ordered those coins deserves to be ripped off.
Well, they said they wanted “change”....
“being ripped off”
ROFL !!!!!!!!!!!! You can say that again but it has nothing to do with stickers!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOL!!!
That’s great I can always count on a good laugh here :)
LOL. I saw them at BBB before Christmas, and thought about buying one of the plates for my mom as a gag, but did not have the heart. As I am a victim of Obama induced Turrets Syndrome myself, I did not want to make Christmas any more stressful for her.
As phony as Obama himself.
BOTH the Coin and the President are a GREAT DISAPPOINTMENT to those that expected something AUTHENTIC. Buyer Beware!
Yea i feel the same way, the coin are just a phoney as our current POTUS, empty suit obamawama.
LOL! Me, too!
