Bloody William: You're not. It's yet another vague claim that right-wingers have heard left-wingers use when arguing and think it's a magic spell and not something that has to actually be backed up

Grand_Moff_Joseph: topcon: Satanic_Hamster: topcon: Yeah, seeing as I wholly support gay rights, I'm pro abortion, I'm not religious, and don't like the idea of theocrats like Rick Santorum running things, no, I don't vote Republican.

What the far left here doesn't realize is that we're not all far left. I like guns, too, a lot. You farksticks act the same way people do on the gun forums I read. When I defend some left-leaning things on certain gun forums, you get things said to you like "go back to Democratic Underground." Thankfully there are a good amount of left leaning and non-moron independents now posting on most of the gun forums and try their best to drown out the hillbillies who still think Obama is a Kenyan national.

On Fark, when you don't tow the absolute far-left line, you get dipshiat twentysomethings saying "Durr, so vote Republican."

For the second election in a row, there's no president I want to vote for.

In short: I don't have to vote Republican because I don't feign indignation over every kooky leftist issue that comes up and gets a 500 reply thread. And there's a LOT of feigned indignation on this website.

That's a lot words for "Both sides are bad."

Yeah. And I still don't vote Republican for non-state/local candidates.

2004 Presidential election: I voted for John Heinz-Kerry.
2008 Presidential election: No one worth voting for
2012: Presidential election: I'd consider voting for Obama if Santorum wins (unlikely.) Between Romneybot and Obama, I don't care who wins, and doubt I'll vote.

You "didn't think their was anyone worth voting for" in 2008? Seriously?

Also, if you don't vote, you have no right to complain here, or anywhere else.


Sure I can complain. You're not forced to vote in this country.

I think Obama has done a fine job with what he was given. The current economy is absolutely not his fault, much as people would like you to think so. The U.S. president has little effect on the global economy which was well into a downturn upon his presidency. People like to think the president has some grand control over things, when he doesn't. This in turn leads to unwarranted blame. I think he's a really decent person.

You sure SOUND Republican for someone who claims not to be. It's ok, just call yourself a libertarian so you don't have to be ashamed.

Yeah, most Republicans vote for gay rights, support abortion (I don't just SUPPORT abortion, I think people should get more of them,) stem cell research, healthcare and insurance reform, et al. I also state the wars of the past decade have been an absolute waste of time and money, and I think it's silly people are held at Guantanamo indefinitely.

But yes, I'm a secret Republican, because some dipshiats on Fark say so.


I know at least one person who has a very similar list of views and yet is supporting Rick Santorum because he's a die hard Republican and hates Obama. Heck, there's a local GOP activist in my hometown who is gay, volunteered for Planned Parenthood, and yet is still so anti-Democrat that he stole his ex-boyfriend's absentee ballot and used it to fraudulently cast another vote for George W. Bush (and yes, this was Florida in 2000 when every vote mattered). So, no, just because you're pretending to be above all of this partisan political stuff doesn't make me automatically believe your assertion that you're not a Republican.

So, we go from Fark is "far-left" to Fark is "left-leaning"...nice job moving those goalposts.
 
2012-03-15 04:34:49 PM  

topcon: Uh, that's pretty much on-target, to be honest. Face it, Fark is, for the most part, left.


I'd say it's for the most part centrist Liberal. There are practically no communists, and the very, very few actual socialists are clearly outweighed by conservatives. Some left-leaning liberal Farkers approach Social Democracy, but the vast majority of posters seem to adhere to the basic principles of Oxford Manifesto (new window) style modern Liberalism.

If you think seriously believe mainstream Fark politics are absolutely far left, your understanding of political philosophy is less than impressive.

When you describe the general Farker's political stance as "absolute far-left", you're not looking for rational debate.

Uh, that's pretty much on-target, to be honest. Face it, Fark is, for the most part, left. Does anyone actually deny this? There are a couple of far right wing troll regulars, assorted other right-leaning stragglers, and that's it.

When you see a thread in the politics tab with 500+ replies, you can get bet your ass most of the comments are left-leaning, from what it seems like the same exact 10-15 people in many of them. Some of these people I see in literally every thread I click on, which probably tells you something about their situation in life.


Um yeah. So when "left leaning" comes to mean the same thing in your mind as "absolute far left", you really have crossed over into BSABSVR derpitory, dude.

You're so unbelievably entrenched in your thinking that everyone has to believe exactly what you do, that anyone who thinks slightly differently is secretly the enemy. That pretty much sums up Fark.

Some of you clearly lack real world experience around other people.

Your idea of both sides being bad is really unique and intriguing. Do you have a newsletter? I guess the most important thing in all this is the fact you feel better than both sides.

I'm on a meme-kick this week... did you know this mystery was actually SOLVED (new window)!?

The entire history is kind of boring. The aftermath and fallout, written about by the one guy who actually has the key to that PO Box... is farking enthralling.

People writing in to ask him to reverse past tragedies. People from prison writing him to ask him to talk them out of their life of crime, people claiming to have some rather exotic weapons and relevant training, offers to join him for free...

"And, for all the writing I've done, they are probably the only words I've written that will outlive me. In the meantime, it's 13 years later, and I still need a girlfriend."


I've never seen the story behind the image before. Thanks for posting that - that was probably the most intellectually stimulating thing in this thread.

Fark, on average, is left leaning. It, however, is not "absolute far-left', nor are there not plenty of right wing commentators.

But not if Romney won the primary? You won't see much difference between a Santorum Administration and a Romney Administration, as both would be rubber stamps for the legislative agenda of a Republican-dominated Congress. Neither Romney or Santorum would veto any legislation relating to the issues you've identified as the important ones to you.

Horseshiat. Period.

"The left" on this site (though probably all falling under your extremely silly definition of "far left", given that "far left" and "far right" according to you seems to really mean "people who disagree with me in any measure") consists of everything from avowed socialists to moderate Republicans to squishy libertarians. Here: watch me say things that would piss off the actual far left, and watch me not get crucified for it:

- Sean Penn is a talented actor, but a cock.

- Four Loko should not have been rorced to change their formula

- The fairness doctrine is unworkable and will lead to nothing good.

- Criminalizing hate speech is a bad idea.

- Dennis Kucinich will likely not be remembered for much

You came into a thread and acted like a dick and got treated like someone acting like a dick. Judging from your profile, you seem to revel in that. You didn't read the article, made the trite and irrelevant point that what politicians name a bill doesn't have anything to do with the actual bill, then got pissed that you were treated poorly.

If you're not a troll, then starting off with "Both sides do it!" and following up with "you're all poor and gen-y and therefore stupid and why can't we have a real conversation anyway" is not a good way to start.

I don't see why an illegal immigrant should get a Visa while they're under investigation. It's not like they can get deported if they report a crime.

sweetmelissa31: James!: That worked better in my head...

VAGING sounds pretty cool too.


My question is: which syllable gets the emphasis? Is it the present-tense verb form of vag (VAGing), or it is like 'vaGING' as in 'cha-ching'?
 
2012-03-15 05:33:08 PM  

Splinshints: Republicans say the measure, under the cloak of battered women, unnecessarily expands immigration avenues by creating new definitions for immigrant victims to claim battery. More important, they say, it fails to put in safeguards to ensure that domestic violence grants are being well spent. It also dilutes the focus on domestic violence by expanding protections to new groups, like same-sex couples, they say.

Really? This is really your argument? You're really doing to go in front of 300 million Americans and say "I voted against crucial, bipartisan domestic violence protections for women after angrily denying them birth control and forcing them to undergo unnecessary medical procedures before receiving an abortion because if I hadn't some other people might have also been extended protections from violence?"

That's really your goddamn argument here? And you don't understand why people are saying you're misognysts? You got pissed off at the notion that women should be given access to birth control as part of their health insurance, you've passed multiple laws in multiple states forcing women to undergo unnecessary and in some cases extraordinarily invasive procedures with no valid medical purpose before receiving an abortion and now you're wringing your hands about extending basic, previously bipartisan domestic violence protections because some people who aren't women might also get some protections?

So far- the only argument against these additions to the bill is that undocumented workers shouldn't get a visa and Gay people shouldn't be mentioned- and also that these two topics are so out of the blue that the Dems should be ASHAMED for trying to sneak it in.


Why does a short visa that would allow an victim to report without fear bug them? They're here illegally any-farkin'-way, and maybe if they got out from the abusiers thumb they might go home to their family. If they don't report- they are STILL HERE, with the added bonus of getting the crap-beaten out of them, and a violent perpatrator is walking around free.

I guess the gay thing is somehow about absolutly refusing to awknowledge anything about homos existing other than that they are goddamned homos. Domestic violence is a small price to pay, gheys. you're lucky we let you shack up at all!

redqueenmeg: Aidan: Anti_illuminati: redqueenmeg: Teknowaffle: Sometimes people ask "why did you leave the US"

Everyday the news from America answers the question more and more.

Can I go too?

Heh. He doesn't even ask where, but wants to go nevertheless. Very telling.

The better question to ask is HOW. Getting my green card for the US was on a very narrow basis. I assume other countries are similar.

Oh exactly. I'm assuming my being 1/16 Swedish wouldn't help :D


I got out, may have to end up marrying the girlfriend to stay out. Not the worst situation since it will probably happen anyway.

Totally correct

What's funny is that a couple of years ago, conservatives seemed to basically be saying "we'll let gays have everything - equality, civil unions, etc. - but just not the M word" and now they're afraid to even let them exist. I guess they thought they were making a deal and the gays pulled out.

topcon: Grand_Moff_Joseph: topcon: Satanic_Hamster: topcon: Yeah, seeing as I wholly support gay rights, I'm pro abortion, I'm not religious, and don't like the idea of theocrats like Rick Santorum running things, no, I don't vote Republican.

What the far left here doesn't realize is that we're not all far left. I like guns, too, a lot. You farksticks act the same way people do on the gun forums I read. When I defend some left-leaning things on certain gun forums, you get things said to you like "go back to Democratic Underground." Thankfully there are a good amount of left leaning and non-moron independents now posting on most of the gun forums and try their best to drown out the hillbillies who still think Obama is a Kenyan national.

On Fark, when you don't tow the absolute far-left line, you get dipshiat twentysomethings saying "Durr, so vote Republican."

For the second election in a row, there's no president I want to vote for.

In short: I don't have to vote Republican because I don't feign indignation over every kooky leftist issue that comes up and gets a 500 reply thread. And there's a LOT of feigned indignation on this website.

That's a lot words for "Both sides are bad."

Yeah. And I still don't vote Republican for non-state/local candidates.

2004 Presidential election: I voted for John Heinz-Kerry.
2008 Presidential election: No one worth voting for
2012: Presidential election: I'd consider voting for Obama if Santorum wins (unlikely.) Between Romneybot and Obama, I don't care who wins, and doubt I'll vote.

You "didn't think their was anyone worth voting for" in 2008? Seriously?

Also, if you don't vote, you have no right to complain here, or anywhere else.

Sure I can complain. You're not forced to vote in this country.

I think Obama has done a fine job with what he was given. The current economy is absolutely not his fault, much as people would like you to think so. The U.S. president has little effect on the global economy which was well into a do ...


Given your take on Obama's performance and your stated beliefs and stands (areligious, pro-choice, pro-gay rights), it seems that the Democratic platform suits you much better than does the Republican's. I don't understand how you can rationally argue that Obama and Romney would be the same.

Also, while Fark obviously leans left, it's not FAR left. In fact, those people get mocked nearly as fiercely as does the far right.

Who wouldn't oppose a violence against women act?

With every new GOP story it becomes clearer that Republicans don't understand what a government is for.

"Obviously, you want to be for the title," Senator Roy Blunt of Missouri, a member of the Republican leadership, said of the Violence Against Women Act. "If Republicans can't be for it, we need to have a very convincing alternative."

That's the first smart thing this tard has ever said.

"There are lots of other issues right now that could be dealt with other than this one," said Senator John Thune, Republican of South Dakota, who is responsible for Republican messaging. "I suspect there's a reason for bringing it up now."

You know what. Fark you guys. You were the guys who started this by dragging the churches into this and having all-male hearings. You're the ones who constant waste time on stupid things like fighting to defund Planned Parenthood and NPR and lightbulbs.

You have no farking room to say "there are other issues that could be dealt with now" because you farking tards waste everyones time as well!!!

In other words, STFU John Thune. You have no room to talk.

Obama recently appointed the head of the Federal Bureau of HIV prevention. I can see it now in 3 months time....

- Special report issued on how a large proportion of individuals infected with HIV/AIDS are low income minority
- Report also details individuals of low income have a hard time affording medication
- HIV infected brown person testifying in front of congressional panel about how he has a hard time with "access" to HIV drugs
- Federal mandate issued which forces insurance companies to provide drugs for free to HIV+ individuals

Anyone opposed is a racist homophobe.
