What a ridiculous amateur may look like.

Hard to believe anyone ever took this kid seriously. And then knuckleheads in Congress pass a resolution honoring him & the skank for their work as "journalist" when in fact it was just another heavily edited hit piece promoted by Breitbart and the Fox noise machine.

This boy ain't right in the head.

Is this outsourcing? (new window)

With the current legislation being debated on taxing US based corps the full US business tax load on profit made from overseas ventures and the debate buzzwords, I have to ask what is outsourcing. The main backers for the legislation state that the current rules incentivise outsourcing... welp the attached article is a venture that will be affected by this legislation. What the fark is outsourcing? There are no US jobs being lost, this will probably allow for more US jobs.

A little help here. I want to listen to the IL gubernatorial debates and I cannot find a thing. I really am on the fence here because I think Quinn or Brady are poor candidates. If someone could help me find a copy of the debate I would be much appreciated. I want to be won over but I feel I just may have to vote Cohen. That man might be the piss pooriest candidate evar so I am under the assumption that a vote for him may be the best way of sending a no confidence vote on the big two.

When I see walking, talking piles of crap like Breitbart and that kid, I can't help but be amazed that I am still appalled by capital punishment.

Being from IL and looking at the returns I am wondering something. Looking at the senate race and the governors race it looks like the Green Party is stealing enough votes from the dems to make my state turn purple (my assumption is that at least 90% of the green voters would vote for the dems if the GP was not an option). Now I do not think that the GP will do anything to shake the states status as a lock for the dems, but my state really shifted to the repubs last night in consideration to our elected national legislators. The IL GP has grown by leaps and bounds the past 4-6 years, if this keeps up I can see a very distinctive change in the makeup of IL politically. Mind you the dems and the repubs have fielded poor candidates and the GP has actually had some votable candidates the past few years so what I am seeing may not be a game change in demographics but just a sign of voter apathy.

Is anyone else seeing this in IL or in your respective state.

"In religion and politics people's beliefs and convictions are in almost every case gotten at second-hand, and without examination, from authorities who have not themselves examined the questions at issue but have taken them at second-hand from other non-examiners, whose opinions about them were not worth a brass farthing."

Within five minutes, any intelligent, open-minded person can be convinced that the Holocaust gassings of World War II are a profitable hoax.

Fred A. Leuchter is America's leading specialist on the design and fabrication of execution equipment, including homicidal gas chambers. In 1988, Leuchter scraped samples from the alleged gas chamber walls in Auschwitz, Birkenau and Lublin. Cyanide residue would be clearly evident on all these walls if gassings did occur. To his astonishment, Leuchter found no significant cyanide traces in any one of these rooms.

In 1991, the Polish government repeated these tests to disprove Leuchter's findings, but they as well found no evidence of any gassings ever occurring.

The structural integrity of these "gas chambers" is also extremely faulty. These rooms have ordinary doors and windows which are not hermetically sealed! There are large gaps between the floors and doors. If the Germans had attempted to gas anyone in these rooms, they would have died themselves, as the gas would have leaked and contaminated the entire area. Also, no equipment exists to exhaust the air-gas mixture from these buildings. Nothing was made to introduce or distribute the gas throughout the chambers. There are no provisions to prevent condensation of gas on the walls, floors or ceilings. No exhaust stacks have ever existed.

Though six million Jews supposedly died in the gas chambers, not one body has ever been autopsied and found to have died of gas poisoning. We have been shown piles of bodies from World War II, but most of these persons died of typhus or starvation or Allied bombings and a great many of those were murdered Germans, not Jews. Roughly the equivalent of ten football fields should be packed full of gassed bodies to present as evidence, yet not one body has ever been discovered.

The Germans documented everything in meticulous detail from shrubbery to arbors, but no pre-war or wartime plans or documents exist that detail or even mention any gas chambers for reasons of genocide. All documents ever presented were drawn up AFTER the war.

Even if we threw away all the evidence and accounted for every so-called gas chamber, it would have taken 68 YEARS to accomplish gassing six million Jews!

Even The Diary of Anne Frank is a hoax. Portions of the diary were written with a ball point pen. These pens were not in use at the time Anne Frank lived.

It is not denied concentration camps existed. Tragically, many died of typhus or starvation, as often happens in such situations. There is, however, no evidence that any gassings occurred for the reasons of genocide.

Israel continues to receive trillions of dollars worldwide as retribution for Holocaust gassings. Our country has donated more money to Israel than to any other country in the history of the world -- over $35 billion per year, everything included. If not for our extravagantly generous gifts to Israel, every family in America could afford a brand new Mercedes Benz. Surely the American people would be outraged if they realized their hard-earned money is being squandered in these difficult times.

With all this money at stake for Israel, it is easy to comprehend why this Holocaust hoax is so secretly guarded. The Jewish name for Holocaust is "Shoah." In Zionist circles, it is known as "Shoah Business." If nothing else, this unbelievable coverup demonstrates the irrepressible Zionist influence and control of our country. Their only defense against the facts is to cry out "antisemitic," "Skinhead" or "Nazi," whereas the majority of those who question the Holocaust are ordinary citizens...though you would never know it from the media.

In whatever way you can, please help shatter this profitable myth. It is time we stop sacrificing America's welfare for the sake of Israel and spend our hard-earned dollars on Americans.

The Holocaust -- the alleged extermination of some six million Jews (most of them by gassing) -- is a hoax and should be recognized as such by Christians and all informed, honest and truthful men everywhere.

Here are the reasons that have impressed me as particularly persuasive in coming to my own conclusion that the Revisionist view of the Holocaust story is the correct one:

- There is no convincing or substantial evidence for the allegation of mass killings in gas chambers in the wartime German camps. Careful investigation -- in particular that carried out by American engineer Fred Leuchter -- has thoroughly discredited the "gas chamber" extermination claims.

- The most reliable statistics available cannot be reconciled with the legendary "six million" figure. The best evidence indicates that no more than a million, or perhaps a million and a half, European Jews perished from all causes during the war years.

- Neither the major Jewish organizations in the United States, nor the wartime Allied governments, nor the International Red Cross, nor the Vatican acted as if they seriously believed the wartime extermination propaganda.

- Although the German government kept extensive and detailed records of its wartime Jewish policy, not a single document has ever been found which substantiates or even refers to an extermination program or policy. Instead, the voluminous German records confiscated by the Allies at the end of the war clearly show that the German "final solution" program was one of emigration and deportation, not extermination.

- Even prominent Jewish "exterminationist" historians now acknowledge that the stories of gassings and extermination in camps in Germany proper are not true, in spite of the fact that such claims were once seriously made, particularly at the great Nuremberg Trial of 1945-1946.

- The Holocaust story now centers on just six former camps in Poland. The so-called "evidence" presented to prove mass exterminations in these camps is qualitatively no better than the now discredited "evidence" once cited for extermination in the camps in Germany proper.

- Much of the so-called "evidence" presented by "exterminationists" over the years has already been thoroughly discredited. For example, the well-known horrific photographs of piles of corpses taken in camps in western Germany at the end of the war are now acknowledged to be photos of victims of disease and malnutrition who perished as indirect victims of the war in the final weeks and months of the conflict. Also, so-called "confessions" -- such as those of Auschwitz commandant Rudolf Hoss -- have been shown to be untruthful and extracted by torture. Many of the official reports and testimonies presented as "evidence" by the prosecution in the Nuremberg trials have since been shown to be lies.

- The fact that so many Jews "survived" German rule during the war -- many of them even in so-called "extermination" centers such as Auschwitz-Birkenau -- is enough to show that there was no German program or policy to exterminate the Jews of Europe.

I agree that he and I agree a bit on political philosophy. I actually held off on posting because most of what I was going to post would be me being FlavOFlav to his Chuck D. It seemed a little silly and redundant.

Over the past few months I have tried to start a conversation here but I guess I just cannot post a conversation starter caustic enough to get people interested. But now with everything going on I have almost become a professional lurker, not enough time to post.

Does Wisconsin follow the enrolled bill doctrine? That's a legal principle applicable to the federal government and many states making presiding officers of legislative bodies final arbiters of whether bills were properly passed. (See: Deficit Reduction Act of 2005.)

I am beginning to have the sneaking suspicion that Bush's plan to invade two points in the Middle East and concentrate the efforts of radical Islamicists on us instead of local governments was complete right but for the wrong reasons.

I got to ask when did the meaning of a no fly zone change to include providing air support to favored actors in the affeced zone? I keep hearing reports of attacks on ground base weapon systems that are not a risk to the planes on the ground. NPR reported that these attacks pushed back the groundforces in order to allow the rebels to attack and advance. That is GD ground support.

So. Should off-topic arguments in live threads be sent into here? Sort of like Thunderdome for the politics tab. What say you all? Fark posting rules would still apply but you could go crazy with whatever flamewar debate you are engaged in without being off-topic or trolling each other(for the most part).

It used to be this but it ended up being the same two people arguing over the same 3 topics, one at a time mind you but moved over to topic b in a month... rinse repeat. This place it dead.

I keep hearing about the budget impasse and how Boehner is recalcitrant to passing a budget that agrees with Reid and Obama. All conversations behind closed doors. HR1 has been passed. It is sitting on the inbox for the senate for over a month now. Why is it that we are having this discussion about passing a new budget bill. One has passed the house and is waiting on Conrad and Reid to have the senate rewrite and to be voted upon. Why are we talking about a new bill when one can be picked up in the senate and written to Reid's and Obama's liking. Then it will need to be either passed back to be voted on in full by the house or sent to the conference committee. Why the heck are we even talking about a new bill? Surely I am not smarter on how a bill becomes law than Reid, Boehner, Obama, the media, and most farkers, because I am an idiot.

So I'm watching Fox News, because that's what they have on during the early bird specials, and on tv there's this near-middle-aged woman sitting amidst the rubble that was her home and she says something to the reporter along the lines of "I thank God for the help I'm receiving" (food and supplies were being distributed).

It was all I could do to not stand up and slap all those nodding heads and scream, "She's giving God credit for what man is doing and she neglected to give God credit for what He did do!"

Ok I feel a little better now. Not much, but it helps to vent.
