The Dogs of War: It is being reported that another earthquake has hit the South Tower!


There's no way a chair could fall over like that due to an "earthquake". Look at it-It supposedly "fell" right behind where it was sitting despite all the shaking? I don't think so.

It was intentionally pushed over.

Funny, your wife says the same thing about you.

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.


I know I'm late to this thread, and haven't read through it, but I just wanted to let you know how full of win this comment is. I LOL'd heartily. That is all.

WTF Indeed: Obama wanted a 3.4, but the GOP wanted a 5.9 so he compromised.


Man, voting should've been enabled on this thread. Bravo!

captain_heroic44: Just being reported on MSNBC:

USGS officials warned Bush administration in 2003 about the possibility of catastrophic earthquake in the DC area. They recommended substantial investment in retrofitting important buildings to withstand earthquakes. Bush did not.


This is Obama's LIHOP

Ug. My goofing off was just interrupted by work. I might just file a complaint with the omsbudsman.

Bush did not act on the report, was the complete sentence.

I'm in DC, felt the earthquake and believe that so far this is no big deal. What exactly is FEMA supposed to do? There's nothing here that a few plumbers and maybe a few cops and firemen can't take care of. Sure, it's going to be a little busier than normal, but these guys are just supposed to go do their thing.

Now to everyone who is laughing about "he's going to blame this on Bush too" should SHUT THE FARK UP! Bush really did drive this country into a cliff in a myriad of different ways and to say anything else is to ignore reality. Then again, that's the new right wing nut play book through and through.

So that is how it is done! Nice! I believe, I believe!

I did attend church with my mother as a child. I was discouraged when asking questions was frowned on. "God's Will," is NOT always an answer.

D.C. and Baltimore may now receive that rare one-two punch found in nature (see Japan earthquake, March 2011), when an earthquake is followed by the rising waters of Hurricane Irene (see Japan tsunami, March 2011). Stay close, my friends!

Rick Perry to take credit for Texas' lack of earthquakes in 3... 2... 1...
 
2011-08-23 06:11:54 PM
The other day, I was in a hot tub and Rick Perry happened to be in there as well. A decent conversation ensued, yet what stood out the most was his saying that Texas would nevar receive an earthquake along the lines of San Francisco, 1906.

Summer Glau's Love Slave: Rick Perry to take credit for Texas' lack of earthquakes in 3... 2... 1...


That would be due to the fact that he hasn't raised state taxes on the upper 1% of fault lines in Texas.

StrikitRich: It was the Earth shifting under his mountain of debt, right?


If that's the case then it's Reagan and the Bush's fault. Clinton and Obama come out of this as the good guys (assuming you use facts, not Republitard rhetoric).

bobadobalina: Meanwhile, on the golf course:

"Mr President! An earthquake hit DC."

"Say it was racism"

"No, sir, it was an earthquake."

"Fore! So do what we always do, blame it on Bush."

"Sir it was a natural disaster."

"So I can't use it to dupe people into supporting me?

"No, Mr President."

"Then da the fark out my way 'fo I bus' this five iron upside yo head!"


I'd ask if that was ironic pretend racism instead of actual racism but as this is teh intertubes it's not much of a contest.

Then again it's Fark so either way I've fed a troll.

But the joke's on him, I fed him collard greens and ham hocks.

No, that will be Obama's bay of pigs.

That's Libya.

The problem here is that Fartbongo is already such an epic failure that he's completely exhausted all historical comparisons. We need to start inventing new words to explain how terrible a president he truly is.


Libya? Your timing sucks. Also, may I suggest "badrong"?

Only if you golf right-handed. It's the other way around for lefties. A slice is where the ball curves outward. A hook is where it curves inward.
