there is nothing wrong with bailing out an Italian company.
we should help everyone!

So many people that profess to love America sure spend a lot of time hoping that Americans fail.

Yet more proof that conservatives and humor don't mix.

The conservative Butthurt on this ad is priceless.

Their 2012 campaign is "If the free market destroys America, so be it!".

Winning!

Clicked hoping they would have something about the 500 Abarth ad, but was wrong. Didn't look at the source, so I guess its my fault.

Good thing PFQ didn't call it humor. That means it's not facts, by your standard, right?

Halftime in America: Remy Chrysler Ad Parody

We need to guard them like Ben Roethlisberger's friends guard a bathroom door.

When they employ tens of thousands of Americans? I'm ok with this

Is this that "Arlington Rap" guy?

Questionable career move.
 
2012-02-08 02:16:08 PM

tenpoundsofcheese: Derp!


Are we doing the time-travel thing again where something that happened after is now believed to have happened before?

Remember kiddies, bailout from dear ol' GWB came first, then Fiat increased it's share of ownership, not the other way around.

And it's Chrysler. It's the global bicycle. Everyone gets a turn at "owning" it.
 
2012-02-08 02:16:20 PM
Dear conservatives,

This particular piece of Republican butthurt is not sticking. Nobody is buying it and you're spinning your wheels. Consider moving on to another invented outrage. Perhaps the Obama's will be having tacos tonight. Perhaps they will use turkey instead of ground beef. Maybe you can find a way to get extremely angry about that instead.

Love,

The sane people

P.S: not that I meant to imply there was any question about your ability to get enraged over the absolute stupidest and most innocuous shiat. I have absolute faith in your ability to become furious over ground turkey.
 
2012-02-08 02:16:27 PM
That ad pointed out some of the cars are made in Mexico.

Republicans hate's Mexican's.

That ad was clearly a Republican war cry to kill Mexicans.

I'm disgusted with the Republicans promoting violence and murder again

"It's halftime. Both teams are in their locker room discussing what they can do to win this game in the second half.

It's halftime in America, too. People are out of work and they're hurting. And they're all wondering what they're going to do to make a comeback. And we're all scared, because this isn't a game.

The people of Detroit know a little something about this. They almost lost everything. But we all pulled together, now Motor City is fighting again.

I've seen a lot of tough eras, a lot of downturns in my life. And, times when we didn't understand each other. It seems like we've lost our heart at times. When the fog of division, discord, and blame made it hard to see what lies ahead.

But after those trials, we all rallied around what was right, and acted as one. Because that's what we do. We find a way through tough times, and if we can't find a way, then we'll make one.

All that matters now is what's ahead. How do we come from behind? How do we come together? And, how do we win?

Detroit's showing us it can be done. And, what's true about them is true about all of us.

This country can't be knocked out with one punch. We get right back up again and when we do the world is going to hear the roar of our engines.

Yeah, it's halftime America. And, our second half is about to begin."


That's what was said. Verbatim. By a well-known Republican.

And three days later, the floor-humping mongoloids are still shrieking their butthurt and conspiracy-theory madness full-force.

Think about that.

It's kind of funny how butthurt right wing neoliberals like Reason are that industry in the US hasn't been completely destroyed.

What can you say about people who are constantly rooting against us?
 
2012-02-08 02:25:46 PM
Is this where the rich people pay other rich people to convince the middle class to blame the poor? Or is this where the rich people pay other rich people to convince the poor & lower-middle class to blame the upper-middle class?

They cheered when The Olympics were not coming to Chicago... They are upset that unemployment rate went down to 8.3% last week.

True Americans indeed.

Once again, conservatives miss out on the whole concept of "parody" and instead thing humor is any half-assed joke tossed into a long political screed.

Why wouldn't you? It cuts the grease, and if you make your taco meat as spicy as I do, you can't taste the meat itself anyway.

Me too.

That Fiat ad was in my top two for commercials in an otherwise uninspired year for Super Bowl Commercials.

And not just because of the rager it gave me.

WHY DOES N0BAMA HATE THE AMERICAN BEEF INDUSTRY?!?!?!? Is the food not halal enough for him? Not enough couscous or arugala?

Actually, the general refrain from the left is "both sides are bad compared to what we'd like, but the Republicans are complete lunatics who have shown that they are insanely dedicated to their rhetoric and their "side" to the point that they'll jeopardize the country itself in order to score political points, and while the Democrats are certainly corporate whores, they've shown at least some consideration for the poor and middle classes and are less likely to propose theocratic laws, so vote Democrat."

Whats awesome about this reply is that it is itself an unoriginal parody of a critique of an unoriginal parody.

Should change the GOP mascot from an elephant to a parrot.

If you can't taste the meat then what is the point?

If pointing out the problem makes me a whore because I'm tired of the corporate interests of BOTH parties having more rights & power than my country's people then yeah, I guess I'm the biggest whore around. Wanna party?

So I said basically this the other day:

If you're offended by the idea that an American city is recovering, American jobs are being performed by Americans in America, and the American auto industry is flourishing once again, then f*ck you, you un-American piece of sh*t.

When you bemoan this country's success, you belong somewhere else. Now either GTFO or get on board you filthy pieces of sh*t.
