If anyone knows a radical when he sees 'em....

Hey Rick! I hear there's a black agitator in your wahing machine, too.

vudukungfu: your wahing machine


He doesn't have a wahing machine, he has blah people who do that for him.

Rick considers not praying before going to bed at night radical.

Occupy the SEC has submitted a 325 page letter to the SEC, FDIC, the Federal Reserve and the OCC, to comment on the notice of proposed rulemaking for the Volcker Rule. In our comment letter, we answered 244 out of 395 questions asked by the Agencies.

The Agencies involved in the Volcker rulemaking process have an historic opportunity to redress many of the economic wrongs of the past, and create a future that privileges the interests of the many rather than the few. We ask that the Agencies vigorously implement the considerable responsibilities that have been discharged to them by Congress, remain faithful to the statute's intent and consider the comments contained in this letter.

Not bad for a bunch of radical hippies.

With an upcoming elect...ion, you shouldn't be criticizing free radicals.

the movement as a whole is not as "radical" as the politicians and media corporations would have you believe.

I believe being the leader of the sweater vest gangstas is even more radical and really the guy should be brought up on RICO charges.

"[I have] a problem with homosexual acts, as I would with what I would consider to be acts outside of traditional heterosexual relationships . . . if the Supreme Court says that you have the right to consensual [gay] sex within your home, then you have the right to bigamy, you have the right to polygamy, you have the right to incest, you have the right to adultery." -Rick Santorum on gay sex, AP interview

everything he says just sounds like assjuice.

that is all.

Maybe he meant it in the 80s slang sense--you know, courting the youth vote with typical conservative accuracy.

I heard that they want us all to have gay abortions and live in tents with Acorns, or something.

It's true, OWS folks are setting up the guillotines as we speak.

OWS has Santorum and his supporters worried... maybe a little fearful. That's nothing but good.
 
2012-02-14 09:38:34 AM
Nothing could better give the Occupy movement widespread appeal than Rick Santorum's voiced disapproval.
 
2012-02-14 09:39:16 AM
I suspect Santorum thinks that a husband and wife sharing a bed is 'radical'.
 
2012-02-14 09:39:16 AM
OWS, a radical element? I disagree...

Chlorine, now that's a radical element. You never know what to expect with chlorine. One second it is a diatomic gas and, a second later, it is floating around a beaker of water as an ion.

And, don't get me started on molybdenum...

Radical in the same way skateboarding and ninja turtles are radical is what he meant, I'm sure.

Republicans have become the radical element in America today. Someone should sue them for false advertising when they call themselves conservative.

Hot Rod Zoidberg: Radical in the same way skateboarding and ninja turtles are radical is what he meant, I'm sure.


In that both are an assault on traditional family values, absolutely. Skateboarders affect such unnatural, suggestive poses, and Ninja Turtles lust after human women who themselves fail to situate themselves in the kitchen.

FTFA: "I understand their frustration. For three years they haven't been able to find work," Santorum said

For a split-second there, I thought Ricky accidentally developed a shred of empathy for the less fortunate among us. Then the words "for three years they haven't been able to find work" sank in and I realized it was just another frothy jab at the scary black man in the White House.

Pretty sure Mrs. (and Mr.) Santorum has a hidden black agitator.

I would remind you that extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice! And let me remind you also that moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue!

Well, he is a Republican, so I assume he has plenty of experience with all of those things.
 
2012-02-14 09:53:13 AM
Of course, believing that rape victims should not be allowed to have an abortion is not a radical view at all right Rick?

10 years ago, if a Republican politician dared say that in public, there is no chance they would even be allowed a shot at higher office. Now it is common place.

"I think it's really important to understand what this radical element represents," Santorum, a former Pennsylvania senator, told hundreds of supporters gathered outside the Washington Historical Museum. "What they represent is true intolerance."

Rick Santorum said this. The guy who thinks the Christian religion should be national law.

Yeah, but you have to look at it from Santorum's perspective, which is the same as the OWS people. When you have a niche background and skill set, you can't just take the first job that comes up. Santorum is only really qualified to be President. You can't expect him to just take any other job.

Rick Santorum said this. The guy who thinks the Christian Catholic religion should be national law.


Not that it makes much of a difference, but he's preaching an even NARROWER world-view.

// and how often would Rick be calling the Vat-phone for "guidance"?

I thought it had been shown that OWS people are more likely to have jobs than Tea Partiers.
 
2012-02-14 10:02:44 AM
This guy could very well end up being the Republican nominee for President. That's pretty amazing.
 
2012-02-14 10:03:04 AM
What the fark is wrong with this country? How can a reactionary neanderthal like Santorum be the preference for President of a significant portion of the population?

Wellon Dowd: I thought it had been shown that OWS people are more likely to have jobs than Tea Partiers.


Don't bother. Unless it's written in their personal copy of the bible or Atlas Shrugged (but I repeat myself!), cons think it's a liberal biased lie.

He's used the same line against gays and our supporters. It's intolerant of us to fight back when he calls us evil monsters.

Only if you include "liberal plant" as a job.

2012-02-14 10:04:47 AM
Guess what, Rick...

Your desire to govern through your regressive religious fundamentalism makes you far more "radical" than the Occupiers.

No way. Hippies are allergic to work.

Good point. Catholicism is so strict not even Catholics follow it.
