If i were to make a list of the Five Most Annoying people on the planet, Toothless Barney Frank, the man who helped create our current economic crisis with his undying support of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, would have a chance of taking up two or three spots.

Toothless was harassed on a flight by two female doctors who think Obamacare is going to be a disaster.

    Barney was offbase in implying he could blow off citizens feedback because he wanted to read a freaking magazine on a plane. A senator is never off the clock. But then again, as the neutral witness testified, those two women were crying and shouting. Good luck expecting any civil response when you act like a jackass on a plane.

    Lke I said before, while I like John’s sports items, his postings do not back up his claim he is an independent. His language used when describing liberals is a lot nastier and more often used compared to the rare mild rebuke he gives his own party politicians.

    • JohnSteigerwald

      I’m a registered independent. I’m also a conservative/libertarian who’s close to becoming a full fledged libertarian. I think liberals have been doing a good job of ruining the country for most of my lifetime and if this group of statists isn’t stopped, the country WILL be ruined. I also think that Repuplicans deserve to exactly where they are. They’re there because they tried to be too much like Democrats. You still haven’t explained why Barney has no teeth and why he’s never been asked about it. Imagine if Obama showed up to give his next speech with no teeth.

        When you guys see Barney you see gay; when you see BO you see black. Im not saying yinz are racist/homophobes or bad guys; just “old-school”. ; dont like change. If you want things to be the way they were in the 50’s again; it aint happening; the world’s changing ; lightning fast. Im surprised Karl Rove has teeth.

        • JohnSteigerwald

          BS. When I see Barney I see a liberal and an a______. When I see Obama I see a socialist who’s in over his head.

    I can’t imagine living in a place surrounded by people who actually decide to send this person back to Congress every two years.

    • Ochotexto

      The guy’s openly gay; so what ? Doesn’t that segment of the populace deserve representation of some kind ? At least he is what he is; if you disagree w/ his politics so be it.
      I have much more disdain and character issues w/ Mark Foley/ Sen. Larry “toe-tapper” Craig; he of the wide stance and several other closeted homos on the hill. They are the tip of the iceberg; the GOP could field a softball team full at least.

      • JohnSteigerwald

        Nobody said anything about him being gay. Where the hell are his teeth?

      • Ken

        Where in my post did I mention his being gay? (Although the fact that his boyfriend once a ran a male prostitution ring from Frank’s townhouse should have been enough to end his career.)

        I can’t imagine living somwhere surrounded by people who would elect this man based on his policies. This man had more to do with the economic collapse in 2008 than any other person.

        Early in GW Bush’s first term, Bush mentioned the impending crisis at Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae and proposed changes that were ignored by Congress. Frank went out of his way to defend Franklin Raines, who was in charge of these firms and said that attempts to rein them in were racist. Bills to reform both died in the House and Senate because of Frank and Chris Dodd; all republicans voted for the bills and all democrats (led by Frank and Dodd) against. They never reached the floor of either house of Congress because a simple majority isn’t enough to get a bill out of committee. The failure of Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae was the lynchpin of the mortgage crisis that led to the bank failures and economic collapse. And Frank is more responsible for this than anyone. John McCain did a speech on the Senate floor in 2005 predicting exactly what happened.

        And Frank is the guy to fix things?!?! He recently was again criticizing the tightening of standards in approving mortgages!

        The fact that people haven’t disposed of this guy in a Nickolae-Ceausescu manner is a miracle.

        • JohnSteigerwald

          Dodd should be wearing an orange jump suit and Barney should have been laughed off the stage a long time ago.

  • C.S. Keys

    Big Ben should hook up with those two ophthalmologists, they sound like fun

  • kman

    I think having no teeth is an asset for a guy like Barney

    • JohnSteigerwald

      I can see where some would find that to be true. I can’t believe that a guy in such a position of prominence walks around with no teeth. Has anybody ever asked him why?

      • Ochotexto

        You guys seem to have a lot of concern about men with no teeth. But hey; whatever yinz do on your own time is your business.

    • JohnSteigerwald

      Not that there’s anything wrong with that. How does a guy in his position walk around with no teeth. Has anybody ever asked him what happened to them?

      • Ochotexto

        I think you are insinuating he’s a pitcher ; not a catcher ?
        Im trying to eat lunch here.

        • JohnSteigerwald

          I’m just asking why nobody has ever asked him what happened to his teeth.

  • Mark

    Typical Barney – things would have been fine had he not deemed himself too important to discuss things with them.

    • JohnSteigerwald

      Where are his teeth?

  • Isteve Roissy

    John! Something we agree on. Barney Frank, what a jagoff.

  • Bob of Mercer Co

    He would still be behind The Polar Princess Palin. Watch out for those Death Panels.

    • JohnSteigerwald

      I’m getting to the age where I will be affected byt my govt. “leaders” deciding whether I’m worthy to receive a ration of care.
