If you have "no place to go," come here!

Don't Barack that joint, my friend!

Pass it over to me:

When a joint was making the rounds, [Obama] often elbowed his way in, out of turn, shouted "Intercepted!," and took an extra hit. No one seemed to mind.

We're all entitled to a misspent youth.

However, only a few of us get to throw people in jail for harmless behavior we ourselves indulged in.

Don't bogart that joint, my friend
Pass it over to me
Don't bogart that joint, my friend
Pass it over to me

Roll another one
Just like the other one
You've been hangin on to it
And I sure would like a hit

Don't bogart that joint, my friend
Pass it over to me
Don't bogart that joint, my friend
Pass it over to me

Rolllllllllllllllll another one
Just like the other one
That one's just about burned to the end
So come on and be a real friend

Don't bogart that joint, my friend
Pass it over to me
Don't bogart that joint, my friend
Pass it over to me

Everybody sing along this time

Don't bogart that joint, my friend
Pass it over to me
Don't bogart that joint, my friend
Pass it over to me

NOTE Of course, Obama was an asshole then, too. "Intercept!" just like his bankster grandmother intercepting transactions to charge rent.

do you know that his grandmother was a bankster? those were the days when banking was boring; it's entirely possible that she and her bank both were good and useful citizens.

.... if you accept usury. I'm not sure I do, any more.

are you considering all interest to be usury?

she appears to have retired in 1986. those were the reagan years, so it's possible that she was truly a bankster at the end, but based on the description of her lifestyle, she never made a bankster-sized salary.

It sure is a coincidence, though.

And I can't help but think that one reason sharia law is demonized is precisely that it doesn't permit interest....

from wikipedia, so as always, i take these with a grain of salt, but:

Applying interest was acceptable under some circumstances. Currencies that were based on guarantees by a government to honor the stated value (i.e. fiat currency) or based on other materials such as paper or base metals were allowed to have interest applied to them.[10]

probably you're overthinking this one. probably the demonization of sharia law stems entirely from the well-known fact that the huns commies muslims are one day all going to land on american shores and kill us all in our beds.
