Remember the jerk who bragged about not hiring until Obama was out of office?
'No Hiring Until Obama Gone' guy scrubs Facebook page

(The two websites involved in the "No hiring until Obama is gone" story have been scrubbed.)

As you may recall from yesterday's reporting, Mr. Bill Looman, operator of US Crane, LLC of Waco, Ga. has been wearing his politics on his pick-em-up trucks, toting signs saying his company policy is "No More Hiring Until Obama is Gone!"

So, I sent him an e-mail with a list of questions. We here at the Examiner wish to be actually fair and balanced in our reporting. We assured Mr. Looman that we would print his answers verbatim. We even told him what the word "verbatim" means. (you really have to read the questions. :rofl: )


UPDATE: Since this story was posted, Mr. Looman has disconnected his phone, is no longer answering his office phone, and is scrubbing his Facebook page faster than a obsessive compulsive hand washer in a room full of cat turds.

The douche is a useful invention, and shouldn't be associated with people like this douche.

36. As in, if you realize you've been an ass, the best policy is to deny it?
Probably that's what he'll wind up doing anyway more or less.

Usually, where public idiocy is concerned, the culprits don't stick around - its always easier to move on to the next display opportunity than it is to actually explain and defend one's position.

10. If this dipshit had merely had an "I Hate Obama" sticker, he would be fine
Hell, it may have given him genuine new business.

But no, the fool had to come up with a slogan that makes it sound like he has a dozen positions to fill, but isn't filling them out of spite, even though it could harm his business.

He would have been better off with an "I Am a Dumb-ass" sticker.

I would LOVE to see his replies, if any :rofl:

Hope he doesn't have any loans out, or need any. I would hazard a guess that companies that publicly make dumb choices that hurt their bottom line probably do not make for good investment risk.

those bumper stickers? (Sorry to go off subject.)Need to make sure my money is going to progressives. If one wanted an antiObama sticker, would they sell those also? In case, someone doesn't understand what I am saying, I would not spend money at a company which is "bipartisan".

quality, or lack thereof, of his cranes, which are made in China.

/HEY, I know some unemployed dude who loves to clear out brushes. He even did it during his many vacations.

34. Hey, I'm proud to have served in the military, too, doosh.
I'm in good company with Timothy McVeigh. We're not automatically heroes when we serve; I've known my share of snarling far-right wing extremist soldiers that during the Clinton and Obama Administration I've been thisclose to calling the Secret Service on myself, including some that I knew were neo-Nazi sympathizers. You meet all kinds in the service. And guys like Looman were far from rare in the ranks. I've been heartened lately at the new generation of GIs going in. They more reflect the tolerant attitude of today's youth instead of many of those in yesterday's segregationist era. Not that I didn't meet a few far left wing extremists in the military. Well, maybe one. So, I'm not impressed with Looman's alleged Marine creds.

'Karen Lewis' also thinks that Obama is a Muslim. That such a thing would even matter to someone is very telling of their ignorance and bigotry.

41. Typical right wing asshole.
The country is full of these people holding down the economy because they hope to beat Obama in the election.

And they mostly hate Obama because he is black.

All Fox News and their minions do is complain that Obama's spending is ruining the country.

You want to see some real spending just wait and see if those Repukes get back in. They can't wait to start a new war.

It prompted a visit from the Secret Service. He's been low key since then.
