I had no idea these petitions existed, and on the White House website, too.
This one is truly LOL funny. Thanks.
Just obey, Sheople. Just obey.
but..but… putting the left foot in, taking the left foot out reeks of wealth redistribution and socialism!
Typical right-wingtip talking point.
I’d love to see Obama do the hokey pokey with the resulting Fox News coverage calling it a “Terrorist Twist,” reminiscent of the “terrorist fist bump” that he shared with his wife.
done. but i’d have preferred he do a barrel roll.
The petition has been removed from the site because it violated the terms of service.
I’m curious as to which of the terms of service it violated? The terms don’t seem to have a clause about stupid and frivolous petitions. (If it did, then, frankly, most of the petitions would go away.)
I’m curious as to which of the terms of service it violated?
I’d guess it would fall under “petitions that do not address the current or potential actions or policies of the federal government”, but I might be wrong.
In any case, “there may be other petitions on We the People on a similar issue that you’d like to add your name to”.
There is nothing even remotely similar to the Hokey Pokey. There is only one.
So, that’s NOT what it’s all about?
