EdNortonsTwin: Sabyen91: EdNortonsTwin: I do really care, I'd like to hear how your one vote will really be doing something my one vote won't.

You assume much about what I do every election cycle BTW. I'm not offended, I just call out the d-baggery when I see it.

My problem with protest votes on the federal level is that it never matters. NEVER. My problem with 3rd parties are they decide they need to run for president before they have elected a state Senator. Third parties have two options to be successful. Build local bases in a majority of states and elect local and state pols...or grow a grass-roots movement to change the rules. Instant run-off...Proportional representation...

While informative, your PoV is rather cynical, votes always matter, and if people would get their arses out and vote more often there would be real proportional representation. Plus, Ron Paul is getting his voice heard, more right now than ever. I don't agree with everything he stands-for, but his votes are not wasted votes; I would love to see him shake things up. Sometimes you have to fight someone or something, even if you know you will lose - that's how you deal with bullies which is what I how I see the two major parties. At any rate, it appears you are a Obama supporter. I would certainly rather have him in office a second term than see anything like we had with Bush II ever, ever again. I hated the Neo-cons with a passion. Our single votes don't really matter; your single vote, maybe it doesn't really matter to Obama; maybe that single vote means more to Ron Paul because he needs a lot of them. All in one's perspective.


Ron Paul has had the exact same percentages for years. He will never win anything other than his little Texas Rep position. You can keep saying third parties (which Ron Paul ISN'T) have a chance but with zero infrastructure they don't. Get back to me in say...12 years and let me know how many national elections third parties have won.

MrEricSir: theMightyRegeya: culebra: crazytrain: She hates being first lady, does a terrible job at it, and shows it. Just give this woman some peace so she can raise her kids.

First Lady is a job? What's the description of said job? What is the wage?

I was wondering that, too.

I also want to know who gave her dictatorial powers to force kids to eat celery and lettuce, because apparently she has the power to do such things.

If her job is making kids eat lettuce and celery, then she failed when that little girl was "forced" to eat chicken nuggets at school last week.


The sad thing is, I know someone who is intelligent, and usually cool-headed, but is a home-schooler and reads Natural News and therefore directed all her friends to Mike Adams' "news" about government agents searching school lunches and forcing kids to throw away healthy food. The thing is about 98% made up in Mike's head and the other 2% gets the facts completely wrong, but let's not let that stop anyone from ranting about the socialist nightmare known as Obama's America.

Hey, anyone remember how saying mean things about Bush was disrespectful to the office? Remember that, Republicans? Remember that, Republicans that I know who said such things to my face, then started sending me the stupid-ass witch doctor pictures of Obama right after he was in office? I'm tired of people treating politics like it's some sort of goddamned team sport.

...heh, come to that, hey Republicans, do you remember George W. Bush at all?

MrEricSir: Sabyen91: MrEricSir: the opposite of charity is justice: I always found this pic to be mile higher on the awkward scale.

At least one of them isn't wearing a bra.

You can tell by the knees.

"Knees" huh? Is that what we're calling them now?


They are hanging down to the knees! Oh, now I noticed how cold it was in that room.

I dunno man, nice tits are one hell of a mitigating factor. For just about anything, really.

It would only be awkward if she noticed I was staring.

Oh hey lookit that, Hillary Clinton is in that picture. Crazy!

Oh, my penis became sad.

Yeah, but she's standing next to nice tits. I guess you getta do all kind of neat stuff when you're the first lady, huh?

You WANT me to hate my penis don't you? Cold nipples...Hillary...perky cute...Hillary. It is a recipe for disaster.

It all feels the same bro.

You are evil.

bikerbob: Ron Paul is dead center with those that have any idea of whats cool in America now. It surely isn't Newt or Obama, they're for the dyed in the wool OLD, TIRED, FAILED, CORRUPT SYSTEM that's on it's way out! Our youth and Dr.Paul "crazy people" will put this country back on track like our forefathers. If you believe our country is doing well you have been in OZ with Alice.


Paultards are irrelevant. If you're looking for a forward-looking revolutionary movement, you want Occupy. A moronic old Republican who's been part of the political establishment for decades is not changing anything.

2012-02-19 12:48:50 AM
In case anyone doubts me on how derptastic Mr. Adams' story was, take a look at it here (new window)

I hate sending traffic to Prison Planet, but I really don't want to send traffic to Natural News, and the comments on PP are a lot more derptastic. I mean, on NN, the strongest comments are "OMG Pull your Kids out of Public schools NOW!!!" On PP, people talk about killing anyone who searches their kids' lunch. And yes, there is much derptastic material about Michele Obama who, again, apparently has dictatorial control over what kids eat...apparently...and it makes me wish, in hindsight, that I had started a rumor about Laura Bush forcing kids to read. I just don't know what I'd say. "SCHOOL KIDS FORCED TO READ HUCK FIN BY LAURA 'biatch FROM HELL' BUSH" or "OMG LAURA 'WORST MOTHER EVER' BUSH FORCES KIDS TO READ SMUT IN SCHOOL". If only I could go back in time...

Never say never. You think a vote only counts if it was cast for a 1st or 2nd place candidate. I still haven't heard from you how your one vote makes more of a difference than my one vote. It doesn't.

Sabyen91: I am pissed he wasn't wearing a push-up bra. Those were some fine tittays.


Now that would make a headline and some amusement. I am actually a little annoyed with the lack of amusing stories in the media. We need something to get people worked up. We need a good politically motivated spree killing or something perhaps? Maybe one of the people running for office needs to go absolutely bat guano crazy and shoot up an office or something.

A push-up bra? LOL That's a good one. Drinking tonight? There are a few ways that can be tied into it. "It's the closest he'll get to a push-up." Or, "At least then they'll be doing push-ups and we all know how the First Lady (I'm going with that needs capitalization) is big on fitness."

At least, for the most part, this thread has been pretty good for people all pretty much saying that this isn't even remotely significant. There were a few exceptions (and additions to my ignore list) but most of us are smart enough to realize that most people aren't obsessed with the political party of the people they meet and feel the need to froth at the mouth or become violent (regardless of the situation) if the other person has different political views than our own.

All-in-all I suspect that it is a good thing that there are so many folks on here. If they're here then they're not outside. If they were outside they'd probably be beaten to death for being idiots. This thread, however, made me feel pretty good about a couple of things. It made me feel good about my own ignore list. It made me feel good about the people who aren't on it - is more accurate I suppose. It was pleasantly surprising to find that there weren't a bunch of people in here claiming that The Other Party would have set the kid on fire, on the spot, and used it as an excuse to strip freedoms away. It was pleasantly surprising to find members of The Other Party saying that it lacked decorum on his part and that she was a class act.

Though, well, I guess I'm a bit confused on how acting like a normal human is being classy but I can see why it doesn't take much these days. I don't think I'll dwell on it much.

Lastly, it was good in that it gave me something interesting to read. I *may* be a bit high tonight. Probably a bit too high honestly. So, having something to keep me busy was nice. I note you're not TF. I'm going to move some cash into my PP account and re-up myself in a little while. Need some TF?

I have voted for people who have a chance to win. Look, I am for 3rd parties. I am for instant runoff. I am for voting local. You can't just send Roseanne Barr to run for president and become a national player.

I haven't been on the White House tour, but I probably would wear a T-shirt myself. I only dress up for weddings and funerals.

BSABSVR: UnspokenVoice: I seldom use the ignore feature easily. This thread offered me two, I think they were good choices. Sometimes you don't need to actually read more of their posts than the one to know, with certainty, that you don't have to worry about missing quality posts in the future.

You seldom use the ignore feature easily, yet you used it over a minor aside about dress? Christ, what the hell do you do in a thread about proper use of a sauce spoon?


I'll answer in the order you asked...

First, you're welcome to assume it was simply about the aside concerning the manner of dress. I can assure you that it was not but you're welcome to assume that, it shows that I either didn't clarify enough or that you're incapable of reading or, perhaps, a combination between the two. I'll assume that it was the latter.

No, I can assure you that it was a far more noble reason. The reality is that they and I have nothing to discuss and I have nothing to gain from them. They, through expressing their sentiment, are clearly not the kind of people in whom I've interest.

If one thinks that you can express an opinion as poorly written as that and as ignorant as that then I am pretty comfortable saying this: I believe that all people are entitled to the same basic human rights, I'm a firm believer in equality in the eye of the law. I have no problem, however, adding that I believe they and I have nothing in common and that I value my time more than I appreciate the slim chance that we may share something meaningful in common such as our favorite color.

Your assumption that it is solely due to the matter of dress is a bit simplistic. It is okay to assume, it is okay to judge, it is how we function as people. If you see someone drooling on themselves in a wheelchair you can assume that they're not the president. If you see someone waving a gun in a bank you can reasonably infer that they're not the district manager giving a motivational speech.

Second, I'll stab someone for using the inappropriate spoon...

Not really, but... I do have serious issues with how people eat and certain behaviors will result in immediate termination of your right to eat around me. I realize that I have issues with how people eat. I will take your food away in my home.

No, obviously, that it doesn't apply to their homes nor to public spaces. If you eat like a pig you're still free to do so. You're just not allowed to do so at my house.

Concerning your spoon question? Meh... I'm only concerned with the "how" and the noise associated with it as well as their capacity to keep their mouth shut while eating.

I'm still not a huge fan of the ignore feature. I used to think it was a bit silly until I realized that I wasn't going to miss out on something brilliant in the future from some of you. So, I use it sparingly and only when I'm reasonably certain that they're at an intellectual level that I'm not interested in approaching.

It doesn't matter what their race, gender, sexual preference, or political party is. I don't ignore people simply because I disagree with them. I ignore them because they have no way to express anything I have interest in.

The same is true for my "friends" choices. A good many of the people who are highlighted green (my "friend" color) not despite my disagreeing with their views but because I disagree with them but I also value how they articulate it and appreciate our differences. I respect that they have different philosophical, economic, or political views and I respect their opinions on some of those matters even though I disagree with them.

I realize your questioning was likely an attempt at brilliance, snark, or trolling though so perhaps you'd like to try again? I'm a bit of an asshole but I'm fairly reasonable about it and fairly consistent, you're welcome to continue with the questions though. I wasn't doing anything better.

I suppose you wanted some other reply? Or perhaps you just don't take the time to think things through? Maybe you were hoping for something to make you proud or to give you a brief moment where you could feel good about yourself. I'm sort of sorry if I don't provide that for you. Maybe next time kid, maybe next time.

As I said, I'm pretty bored.

If you see someone waving a gun in a bank you can reasonably infer that they're not the district manager giving a motivational speech.

Second, I'll stab someone for using the inappropriate spoon...

Not really, but... I do have serious issues with how people eat and certain behaviors will result in immediate termination of your right to eat around me. I realize that I have issues with how people eat. I will take your food away in my home.

No, obviously, that it doesn't apply to their homes nor to public spaces. If you eat like a pig you're still free to do so. You're just not allowed to do so at my house.

I'd make a terrible President, cause I'd make a point of doing things like that enough times it stopped becoming news and the secret service would learn to hate me.

proteus_b: UnspokenVoice: I'll answer in the order you asked...

First, you're welcome to assume it was simply about the aside concerning the manner of dress. I can assure you that it was not but you're welcome to assume that, it shows that I either didn't clarify enough or that you're incapable of reading or, perhaps, a combination between the two. I'll assume that it was the latter.

No, I can assure you that it was a far more noble reason. The reality is that they and I have nothing to discuss and I have nothing to gain from them. They, through expressing their sentiment, are clearly not the kind of people in whom I've interest.

If one thinks that you can express an opinion as poorly written as that and as ignorant as that then I am pretty comfortable saying this: I believe that all people are entitled to the same basic human rights, I'm a firm believer in equality in the eye of the law. I have no problem, however, adding that I believe they and I have nothing in common and that I value my time more than I appreciate the slim chance that we may share something meaningful in common such as our favorite color.

Sabyen91: Thunderpipes: If Patrick Ewing mated with a mountain gorilla, you would get Michelle Obama.

She looks pretty hot in that video. It think you might just not like black people.


Hehe, how original! No, I just don't like gorilla. Look at her. unless you like 50 pound asses and teeth like a tiger shark, then no, she is not attractive.

Sorry, Obama's chick is ugly as hell. Course, since you insulted GWB's chick all those years, you understand. Oh wait, left wing, hippiecrit.....

yeah buddy i don't find the first lady attractive in a sexual way either, but at least i myself have the common sense not to say that she "looks like a gorilla" and then wonder why people think i'm some sort of racist.

SuburbanCowboy: The first people that walk in, the little kid goes to pet the dog and he Michelle says it's ok, and the parents go "he can't he's allergic!"
The Obamas got that breed of dog because it is hypo-allergenic. Also, what a well behaved dog.


Yeah, that was definitely a *facepalm* moment. I guess the family didn't realize that the Obamas picked that particular breed because Malia has allergies.

Sabyen91: Heh, not saying it is a bad thing. I just got half-way through the first sentence and the beer said "drink me". I never stood a chance.


I understand... I am kind of good at drinking. I had to stop. The worst part is that my mother used to tell me that quitters never win.

proteus_b: welcome to ignore!


Thanks! Now you won't have to see my giant walls of pointless text. So, there is that. Well, assuming you really clicked the button. I would... Well, maybe. I'm not sure if I could stand myself.

culebra: Pretty sure he was just yanking your chain. No need to write a dissertation on the subject that no one is going to read anyway.


Pshaw... There's ALWAYS a good reason for a wall of text. I've not hit Fark with a wall of text in, wow... It has to be in the "months" category. It has been too long. Tonight seemed a good night.

I don't think there was much of anything of value in there either. It's okay, I type like a demon and am truly lacking in anything of value to do at this hour of the night. I did get a new soldering station but the varied noises would awaken The Missus which, frankly, is a not a good thing.

PsiChick: Bathia_Mapes: GAT_00: Why would you tour the White House wearing a shirt like that? It's like showing up at a Mets-Phillies game wearing a Yankees jersey.

IMHO, I think he did it to see if he could get a reaction from the First Lady. If that was his intent, he failed spectacularly.

Seeing as he's a teen, he might have done it on a dare because nothing else was clean too.

FTFY

/Teenagers are wonderful people. We do not do laundry.


My first thought too. It doesn't have a stain and must not have smelled too bad=clean enough to wear to a teenage boy.

It looks like subby is one of those people who actually likes political divides. And thinks that they are strictly enforced throughout society. 'This shop is for democrats only'. Or something.

Alphakronik: Why is that awkward? I highly doubt that Michelle Obama is only approving of one point of political view. Unlike her GOP critics who would pigeon-hole her as such a person, most people can understand and are ok with other people having beliefs and opinions.


Thanks for saving me some typing.

Well, it was the former. But you clearly REALLY enjoy putting your words to text (and making shiat up), so go nuts with the condescending douche-bag bit if you really must. Clearly it provides you with more than enough personal validation. Due to the fact that, well...being a smug douche provides you with said self-validation, I have zero interest in asking you any questions, as you are not nearly as clever or as smart as you think you are, and not interesting enough to want to know.

For the record put on ignore who you want, I don't particularly care. Ultimately I will lose zero sleep over your bold move, nor will I likely even remember you after this thread dies. Though I'm sure you'll continue with the pretentious twunt thing and some day I'll be in a thread and I'll probably think "huh, that dude is a pretentious twunt" and may or may not respond depending on how bored I am at the moment.

Let's just do the world a favor and not pretend that what you did was either some difficult decision made with reluctance, nor some noble attempt to bring the "Hey, Michelle Obama and a kid with a RON PAUL shirt saw each other and acted normal" thread to Parisian salon levels of discourse.

You were pissy and felt that the world needed to not only know it, but believe that it was some meaningful act of sacrifice. How nice that must have been for you.

The only people that stupid are the voters. Someday the Presidential ballots will offer a choice of: "Anyone but these two arseholes". That will be the day voting matters again.

LindyJohn: Curse of the Goth Kids: LindyJohn: Who the hell wears a T-shirt on a tour of the White House, let alone a political one?

Teenagers.

But then again, it's a tour, not a state visit. If he was dragged to that AND the various monuments, the Capitol and assorted other rigmarole I'm not really going to slate him for dressing comfortably. And at least by advertising a candidate he's taking an interest in the whole citizenship thing. I'm not really seeing a problem anywhere in this really.

I get that and I realize that dress standards have disappeared in the last two generations. However, crap situations like this highlight the reasons why societal dress standards exist in the first place.

Someone above mentioned that he should have worn Khakis and a collared shirt at a minimum, and I agree. Dressing for ultimate comfort in all situations is just plebian and corsens public culture. This is just one small example of why and how that happens. Kid should have known better. I have kids of my own and hope that they would. I also hope that public standards of dress come back in vogue...


Make comfortable dress clothes and it will.

Wearing clothing that is uncomfortable at best and health damaging at worst (corsets anyone?) just for the sake of "looking nice" and "social norms" isn't going to get a whole lot of traction these days. Which is refreshing. People spend too much time doing silly and arbitrary things as it is, for the sake of social norms, that practicality was/is almost a lost art.

But affordable comfortable clothes that look nice too? People would happily wear those and expect others to wear them. There wouldn't be a good reason not to.

not really news: a fat American does something tacky. t-shirts are for sleeping, loafing around the house, yardwork/housework, the gym, maybe a concert. the White House is not an appropriate place to wear any kind of t-shirt, even if you had no idea the First Lady was going to show up. try to show a little class.

that the guy was a RoPa Dope is just incidental.
