Obie Goes To The Bank

Obama walks into a local bank in Chicago to cash a check. He is surrounded by Secret Service agents. As he approaches the cashier he says, "Good morning Ma'am, could you please cash this check for me?" The cashier says, "It would be my pleasure sir. Could you please show me your ID?"

Obama said, "Truthfully, I did not bring my ID with me as I didn't think there was any need to. I am President Barack Obama, the President of the United States of America !"

The cashier says, "Yes sir, I know who you are, but with all the regulations and monitoring of the banks because of 9/11, impostors, forgers, money laundering and bad mortgage underwriting, not to mention requirements of the Dodd/Frank legislation, et cetera, I must insist on seeing ID."

Obama says, “Just ask anyone here at the bank who I am and they will tell you. Everybody knows who I am." The cashier says "I am sorry Mr. President but these are the bank rules and I must follow them." Obama says "I am urging you, please, to cash this check. I need to buy a gift for Michelle for Valentine’s Day"

The cashier says, "Look Mr. President, here is an example of what we can do. One day, Tiger Woods came into one of our bank branches without ID. To prove he was Tiger Woods he pulled out his putter and made a beautiful shot across the bank into a coffee cup. With that shot we knew him to be Tiger Woods and cashed his check."

The cashier continued, "Another time, Andre Agassi came into the same place without ID. He pulled out his tennis racquet and made a fabulous shot where as the tennis ball landed in a coffee cup. With that shot we cashed his check. So, Mr. President, what can you do to prove that it is you, and only you, as the President of the United States?"

Obama stands there thinking, and thinking, and finally says, "Honestly, my mind is a total blank...there is nothing that comes to my mind. I can't think of a single thing. I have absolutely no idea what to do and I don’t have a clue"

The cashier says, "Will that be large or small bills, Mr. President?"

Slow Motion Video Of The Tony Stewart - Kevin Ward Incident Suggests Ward Grabbed Stewart's Wing

A story from TWC News in Rochester reports that investigators have now reviewed two videos of they incident involving Tony Stewart and Kevin Ward Jr. Ontario County Sheriff Phil Povero said in the story that there are two different angles of Ward walking on the track after a crack at turn two on the 14th lap and then being hit by Stewart's winged sprint car.

Investigators still say that there are no facts to support criminal behavior or conduct, or probable cause in the crash. They emphasized, however, that the investigation is open.

Sprint car driver Cory Sparks has come forward with his side of the story, telling about the angle he witnessed of the event. Sparks said, "From what I saw, Tony did everything in his power to turn down away from Kevin to avoid him. People say that they heard the engine rev up and he gassed it. In a sprint car, the only way to steer is you steer with the rear wheels as much as you do the steering wheel. In my opinion, what he did was he gassed it to turn down away from him."

Sparks also noted in the article that the videos posted online don't give an accurate portrayal of what happened. There was no video in Stewart's car.

This is a slow motion video of the Tony Stewart - Kevin Ward incident. It looks like he jumped up and grabbed Stewart's wing, lost his grip and then fell. Watch around the 11 second mark!

Multiple sources report that an autopsy conducted by the Ontario County coroner found that Ward's cause of death to be massive blunt trauma.

The general media has analyzed this incident from every angle, the majority of whom are totally ignorant of sprint car racing and racing in general.

Most respected reporters have acknowledged the fact that they don't know enough about the sport to give an opinion. There are, however, the usual assholes that will give their opinion whether they are knowledgeable or not.

That's it for now
. More soon.
