For the last frigging time, this is NOT THE "DC QUAKE". If Mineral, VA (the epicenter) is part of DC now, then so is Philly. Please continue with your thoughful and considerate political banter.

I thought we were supposed to hate FEMA, what happened to all of that?
 
2011-08-23 04:43:28 PM  

Nabb1: I believe Mr. President has issued a press release that his top science advisers have pinned the origin of the quake to a geological formation known as Bush's Fault.


Alright, you made me laugh.

Who even believes he's a Democrat?



So what the fark are you mad about? Let me get this straight...Republicans hate Obama because he acts like a Republican?

You know, I think he IS a plant. I think Obama was planted by aliens to prove that a black man can do EVERYTHING bigots ask and they'd still find a reason to hate him. Hypothesis proven, space man. Experiment over. I think you have all the evidence you need.

Obama asked the plates to compromise, so they came together.

PanicMan: RedEmily: I didn't feel it.

That's not really useful information without at least a general location. People have felt it from NC to Canada. I'm in a brand new glass building in Maryland. We definitely felt it here, so people freaked out a fair ammount.


lol. How would it have been useful to you had I given you my location?

brantgoose: Other national monuments:

* Martin Luther King is fine.
* The Smithsonian Institute is a bit cracked, but not seriously.
* Ronald Reagan wasn't injured but evacuated some gas.


Sounds like Ronnie and I had similar afternoons.

No. No we don't.

These are people that refer to the time of slavery, no rights for women, and horrible wage laws as the "good 'ol days".

Yeah. Cloverfield. Started under the Pentagon.

Found this:

No real comment.

Not sure if serious.

If I was an AW, I'd thank you for the mention.

Yes, that usually results in a lot of shaking.

Antimatter: beta_plus: lockers: Jake Havechek: "The ACLU has got to take a lot of blame for this.

I never understood the small-government loons hate for the ACLU. This is a group who's whole purpose is to limit government power. Shouldn't they be contributing members?

The ACLU feels that the 2nd Amendment doesn't really count (they cop out by calling it a "collective" right - funny I though were all about individual rights), and their stance on the 9th and 10th isn't much to brag about either.

their base their stance on Case law, iirc.

And they are for civil rights, not just individual rights.


ACLU's state-level organizations have a lot of leeway as to what they decide to support, as far as I know.

Yeah, I think that would be more of a Mike Richards thing really...

Why does Obama hate a stable, non-shaking Earth? Farking earthquaking loving socialist!

This NEVER would have happened if a Republican was president! They cut earthquakes like they cut taxes!!

xenophon10k: SouthernManDunWrong: I can't wait to hear/read what Alex Jones (infowars.com) has to say about this.

I'm guessing it'll sound a lot like "HAARP-A DERP!"


Someone cares what Alex Jones thinks about an earthquake? Can it go much beyond "it was an earthquake?"

An IKEA shelf survived the earthquake? Color me impressed.

It's always the 2nd Amendment with you farkheads. You didn't seem to care when Bush made the 4th Amendment non existent.


It's almost as if they're clinging to their guns and religion.

An earthquake hits DC, Hurricane Irene is about to head up the East Coast, the Middle East is falling apart, and Lois Lane gets arrested in front of the White House.

WTF? Why can't we get a real president who exports all our problems to brown people elsewhere?

Why did I do that. I had already filled my daily quota of conspiracy.

I'm afraid I've gone cross-eyed now.

Anybody high up in the government can claim you're a terrorist and G-men can bust into your house and haul you off with no charges and hold you without counsel indefinitely is a lot scarier than making sure everyones guns are properly registered.

If it was Bush the dems and their handmaidens in the media would already have a ten page outline for his criminal negligence. nancy pelosi is probably trying out lines of condemnation in front of her mirror directed at Bush as I type this.

nancy pelosi: "If only Bush didn't spend money on throwing out that nice man, saddam, we would have had they money for the anti-earthquake machine in the green jobs bill!"
