It was a simple question about something I didn't understand, one that was never answered.
Whether I live in the United States or not, I don't appreciate condescendingly being told to "just let it be".

If that's sarcasm (and unlike most of the Uru community I know what sarcasm is), then this is a whole new breed that I've never seen before. :P

Still trying to figure out why she thanked me by the way...

Hey, if D'ni was in New Mexico all along, then the D'ni were American!!!!! Certainly means Atrus was born on US soil... meaning he could run for President, right? Atrus without doubt is miles above Obama or Romney, as a cantidate.


Edit to add: Family scandals would probably wreck his aspirations, tho... his sons are crazier than the Kennedys.


There's a problem with that - Atrus is something like 250 years old, which means he was born before New Mexico became a state. Oh, well, nice thought, though!

As for the Cheap Shot Humor - I am American, and I don't get it either. Tai'lahr's right, though. It isn't worth worrying about.

Cully, only Charura can tell us what she meant, but I took it to mean she was referring to government welfare checks which I believe come at the first of the month. The use of President Obama's name could simply be a reference to the U.S. government or more specifically to his liberal policies. Hope that helps to satisfy your curiosity.

Tomala, seriously? Have you never sarcastically thanked someone when you were truly peeved by what they'd done? I was going to post that she had learned from the best, but you seem to be slipping. :P

Nope, never in the slightest whatsoever. Why, I would never in my wildest dreams dwell in my train of thought. I would never even dream of something that cynical! I assure you my dear madam that I am as serious as Stephen Colbert! Also, too you betchya.

Edited for teh grammarz

Thanks, Tai'lahr! :)
So, if the meaning you read into Charura's statement is correct, she's saying at least a couple things:

1. Government welfare is somehow more of an Obama thing than under past U.S. presidents, as if it was invented during his term, and
2. The URU community has a large percentage of people drawing government welfare checks, people who immediately spend some of that income on URU donations.

Of course, the above assumptions haven't been confirmed or denied.

Jokes that require explanations aren't funny.

Translation for Tomala: Explanations always make jokes so much more funny.

:P

If I start a new thread "Please Derail This Thread" is that against the rules?

Hmm, like the idea of such a (sticky) thread. Can be used as a sort of "visible" trash can. :P
