  1. Can i have subtitles on all my federal regulations? These would have been helpful during the last presidential campaign.

    1. This was fucking awesome snarky alt-text.

  2. Awesome, especially the line about hostage videos.

    Not for nothing, but what is up with always putting approximate times for the videos? This video isn’t approximately 90 seconds, it is 98 seconds (plus or minus one second, but still).

    1. Different computers will produce various actual run times during playback. Reason dot com is staffed by reasonable and intelligent people who most likely chose the approximate time since it’s a more accurate representation for their video viewers.

  3. This was good work. Thank you.

  4. these are awesome

  5. So, when they jack-booted thugs break into our house to send us the re-education camp, we’ll know exactly what regulation is being followed and find comfort in knowing that by following the rules, we can rest assured that we will return from the gulag happier and more productive.

    I think they are running out of ideas on how to fuck us and need us to suggest new ways.

  6. Thanks for the subtitles, I experience a deafness whenever statists/cultists are speaking. Must keep myself from becoming infected if I wish to continue battling these alien organizations and individuals that operate in clear violation of the highest Law in the nation.

    Don’t become the next Scarlet Johannsen who after the White House Correspondents’ Association dinner last Saturday stated that:

    “I was as the White House Correspondents’ dinner and Obama was hilarious, actually. He really like, he, we all drank the Kool-aid. We were sold. It was amazing.”

    What ever happened to the good old days when drinking the Kool-Aid meant the cult was ripe and they were all ready to commit suicide so they could catch their ride on a spaceship hiding behind the Hale-Bop comet or something? Today they won’t settle for anything less than taking us all with them.

    1. Shut the fuck up, “pi”. Obama is Osome!

      1. I want to have his babies!

        1. You may want to sit down to hear this. Larry Sinclair and Obama have been trying to produce a child for years without success. It’s possible Barry is sterile. Just thought you should know.

      2. Pi in your eye, O’ gullible one.

  7. Well done, Meredith Bragg.

  8. yes, good luck to the contest.
    and good luck to everyone.

  9. The subtitles were good, but an actual dub-over would have been even better. As it is, this mockery of our government’s “contest” reminds me of this hilarious parody of GM’s equally clueless and insulting ad about the bailout.

  10. I don’t own a video camera. Will Obama send me one with my next brick of government cheese?

  11. Nice! Robotic voices are cool dude!


    1. Well, I’ll be damned, an AI ad-bot so advanced it actually can process video sound files.

      My compliments to the maker, very impressive programming.

      1. I think the title of this post was “Let your robotic voices be heard!” but now has changed.

  12. Patiently waiting for the Hitler “Downfall” video about government regulation.

  13. Flavor aid, yo.

  14. Brava! Brava!

  15. I always think that liberals can’t go any further and then they do! Our morally bankrupt government is at again; but why to re-brain wash the mindless morons who voted this communist in office? Oh yeah, loosers, sorry no offense to loosers. I ment liberals need hard working, conservative minded people to suck them dry to pay for there corrupt anti humanity programs. Goodness, liberals produce nothing but misery and death. Oh, I’m sorry, GM now is under the control of the evil impire and they still build crap!
