According to the tinfoil hats, the US Government has built a weather machine. They call it HAARP(pops). That thing can also cause earthquakes. Supposedly it was responsible for Haiti. Russia is supposed to have one as well. If I remember right there are several scattered throughout the world.

Oh, just doing your part to get to that point, eh?

One day when you can afford a house and become part of a municipal utilities district you might understand.

No, no, it doesn't. There are no ultra-left politicians of any significance in American politics. Not liking Obama or Pelosi or their policies is not the same as what you did. You used the terms "ultra-left" and "strong left wing" in relation to American politics and that's just plain stupid and I'm not going to pretend anymore that it's not.

wyltoknow: fatandolder: Overfiend: What does politics have to do with drought?

This is fark. The idea is to bash, religion, Texas, Perry, republicans, or all of these. It does not matter take you pick.

Actually, as many people in this thread have stated (you would see if you bothered to read it before putting on your butthurt pants), the theme behind this bashing is to thoroughly mock Perry for his recent public exploits of encouraging his constituents to "pray the drought away". But, hey, don't let context get in the way of your pouting. Sniff sniff, why is Fark always so mean to Republicans? :(


The people of Texas praying no matter for what, hurts you all how?

Sandor at the Zoo: Kar98: Turns out if you didn't go to the same high schools and don't go to the same "churches", and don't speak with the same drawlsquawkwhine, and don't drive a farking pickup truck, you're shiat to them. So, again, fark'em.

I dunno man. I didn't go to high school here, I don't go to any church, I grew up in a big metro area so my drawl is practically non-existent, and I drive a Japanese-branded sedan. And yet, none of those things prevent myself and the average stranger from getting along. Sorry that you've got such a dim view of this place.


Kar98 hates the state. There's nothing anyone can do about it. The nicest Texan in the state could walk up to him and offer a handshake and he would recoil in fear of catching 'the religions'

Kar, just admit you came to Texas already predispostioned to hate it. You never gave the state a chance, or else you would have fit in just as everyone else who actually opens their eyes a little. You actively hunt for the shiat of the state (which EVERY state has) and ignore anything good. Noone else experiences the type of Deliverance crap with yokels chasing you with shotguns in the back of a pick-up blaring country.

LindLTaylor: HotWingConspiracy: LindLTaylor: HotWingConspiracy: LindLTaylor: HotWingConspiracy: LindLTaylor: It has been August weather here since June. Most of my neighbors have pretty much given up on laws and gardens this year. Even with a sprinkler system it is a real mess keeping up with watering. I have to get up early and hand water specific shrubs, trees and parts of the lawn and I feel I am just barely getting by.

So your response to a drought is to water the lawn. Solid.

Yes you prick. I have a very expensive sprinkler system that is ineffective. That is the extent of the drought and the extreme temperatures this summer where a sprinkler system cannot even keep up with it unless you go out and supplement it with additional hand watering in certain places and at the base of trees/shrubs. Most of my neighbors have systems as well but their laws are brown in many places and trees dying.

That's the point so go fark yourself with your snarky little comments.

Holy shiat you're a retard. Stop watering the farking lawn, YOU'RE IN A DROUGHT. You washing your car too? Dipshiat.

Do you have any idea what it costs to re-sod a lawn?

Nobody farking cares about how much money you blew on your shiatty lawn.

No probably not because you probably live in a low rent apartment or white trash neighborhood somewhere where people use their lawns to stack up old car parts and abandoned appliances.

I live in an immigrant neighborhood, the lawns are meticulous.

Some of us own nice houses and want them to look nice. So you can go f*ck again and quit trying to act like you know anything about home ownership.

Where the fark did I say anything about home ownership? You're a selfish prick.

"Whaaaa, I'm gonna need to re-sod!"

You'll have the greenest lawn around when nobody can flush their toilets.

Twit.

Shut up dimwit. You have no idea what you are talking about. We are not even on voluntary water restrictions right now. One day when you can afford a house and become part of a municipal utilities district you might understand.


What's there to understand? I own my own home. I run off of well water. When we have a drought, I let the lawn go dormant, rather than try to water it. If it's a drought, and a heat wave, I'm much more concerned about crops and all that than making sure I have a green lawn.

Could you perhaps be more verbose in your explanation rather than simply berating everyone?

To me ultra left was back when we were constantly being told how evil and stupid working white men were just because they were white and men and how great women and minorities were just because they were women or minorities.

St. Arnold is Fantastic. IMO, it beats the pants off Shiner, and I love Shiner. One of the few beers I will buy routinely. Their Summer Ale will cool you down even on the hottest day (which is saying a lot right now). If you're in Houston, check out the brewery, it's a fun way to waste a few hours.

I wasn't the one you asked, but I'll answer. They are, especially Pelosi, a bit left of center. Pelosi may be a socialist, but I don't think she's that far left. There are no real socialists or communists of any consequence in American national politics.

Actually if he were president I'm afraid that the feds might not even help because if he does become the pres he will probably try pass that horrible idea of a balanced budget amendment because I am sure, at least for a while, that we will have basically already spent every possible cent that we are receiving in taxes (kind of like how my own paycheck is gone before I even get it). How much of the budget do you think will just be set aside for the unseen? A little maybe, but what if LA is leveled by an earthquake We will either have to cut out an expenditure that has been budgeted already, raise taxes immediatel, or violate the constitution. All of those are worse then just exceeding our budget.

Weather or not I use tons of water or no water has no impact whatsoever on farming. The water we use here has nothing do do with farming and they don't transport water form here to the places where food is grown. Our water comes from a lake and is managed by the river authority and the local municipal district. Neither of them have imposed water restrictions yet and have not even asked for voluntary restrictions. When they do then I always follow them. Until then I am doing what I can to salvage the yard, as are many others who live here.

2011-08-19 11:31:08 AM
RE global warming: It's almost always dry in August here. The problem is, we usually get a decent amount of rain in the spring, and this year, we really didn't. All the spring storms we usually get in April and May and June didn't happen, for the most part, though we did get some rain and awesome, car-denting hail in Dallas on one occasion. Instead, it got really farking hot early (like first week of June) and has continued since then, with very little rain. Dallas area has actually gotten a little more rain than other places (comparatively speaking), so we're doing better on water than say, west of here.

A big farking blob of hot air usually parks right over us every summer. It's just been bigger and hotter this year than usual (Google "Hadley Cell," apparently that's partially responsible). And the lack of rain has made it worse (ie, dry air heats up faster and gets hotter than humid air), and it's kind of a farked-up loop; the big blob of dry air keeps any humid air (ie, the kind that creates storms) from coming here from the north or the Gulf, and the dry ground doesn't provide any humidity, so the air gets even dryer and hotter than it normally would. Eventually, a bigger, meaner blob of cooler air or humid air will "puncture" the "dome" of high pressure, but until then, the heat and dry will continue. What really sucks are the high overnight temperatures. They haven't been below 80 in awhile, so when the sun comes up, temp doesn't have to rise much to get to 100. It sucks.

What positions do these two hold that put them in the ultra left category?

Better yet,what positions are ultra-left to you?

Pro choice? is that Ultra left? if so then a majority of Americans are ultra left.

Pro taxing the rich at the Clinton levels? If so then about 70% of Americans are ultra left

Pro gay marriage? again the majority of Americans are ultra left

Pro health care reform? Pro medicare? Pro social security? again the majority of Americans love these ideas. Do you actually believe a majority of Americans are ultra left?

Most people agree with the Dems on these issues it's just that the right controls most of the news and commentary media and they have the loudest voice. they've managed to co-opt religion and using that with a health dose of nationalism they sway the non critical thinkers.

It's not a political thing or a Fark thing. It's just a natural outgrowth of only hacks, trolls and self-important know-it-alls having the motivation to post the same shiat over and over, knowing that no-one's going to have an honest conversation, because it's the internet. Reasonable people -- people who are pretty sure they can't fix the world's problems without any information and nary five minutes thought; people who are pretty sure that their trappings don't define them -- just don't bother.

At least not often. Sometimes they post anyway. Most learn pretty quickly.

Another guy's says 'Your Mom'. Is that one also true?

Ladies and gentlemen, LindLTaylor has done the impossible here today. Kar98, GnomePaladin, HotWingConspiracy, BurnShrike, KitFister and myself are all in agreement in a politics thread. We all apparently think you're a short-sighted, selfish prig. Stop wasting water on your lawn before there's not enough left to do the important things (like drinking it). Fresh water supplies for large areas are interconnected.

DrupyDrawrs: You guys realize that the guy was first elected years ago as a Democrat and then he decided to change to Republican to better suit his interest.


And by interest you mean "chances for election."

He never should have defeated Hightower. Bush never should have defeated Richards. This state never should have gone Republican. It was all a very stupid mistake/

ringersol: DingleberryMoose: "Both parties have their total wingnut mouthbreather party hacks who know better than anyone else. Fark seems to attract them."

It's not a political thing or a Fark thing. It's just a natural outgrowth of only hacks, trolls and self-important know-it-alls having the motivation to post the same shiat over and over, knowing that no-one's going to have an honest conversation, because it's the internet. Reasonable people -- people who are pretty sure they can't fix the world's problems without any information and nary five minutes thought; people who are pretty sure that their trappings don't define them -- just don't bother.

At least not often. Sometimes they post anyway. Most learn pretty quickly.


This thread's been more reasonable than most. That's why I'm still here.
