(Fox News)   Three years into the Most Transparent Administration Ever, how many states get an "A" grade for transparency, accountability, and low corruption? How does "zero" sound? And you'll never guess who actually ranks highest   (foxnews.com ) divider line

Excuse me, subby, but what does one have to do with the other?
 
2012-03-19 08:35:41 AM  
Wait, why is it Obama's faults if various STATES aren't transparent? Blame him for the federal government's Transparency/Lack Therof, but, uh, I don't think he has much control over how the states wish to comport themselves, at least in this regard.

Subby's headline is bad and he should feel bad for submitting it.
 
2012-03-19 08:36:17 AM  
There are a lot of things Obama can be fairly criticized for, trollmitter. State governments being crooked is not one of them.

/Surprised Massachusetts is a C. I thought it'd be lower.
 
2012-03-19 08:36:40 AM  
Obamao should send in the army to straighten the states out
 
2012-03-19 08:37:09 AM  
Fox blames Obama. Details from Fark independants in tread.
 
2012-03-19 08:37:25 AM  
Since we can't get any A's is state government transparency, we at least deserve one in politics headline trolling, right?
 
2012-03-19 08:40:27 AM  
STATES RIGHTS!
 
2012-03-19 08:42:41 AM  
Not even Fox News is dumb enough to blame this on Obama.

Boxcutta: Subby's headline is bad hilariously idiotic and he should feel bad awesome for submitting it.

You my friend underestimate the potential stupidity of Fox News.

Someone thinks that the President of the United States is responsible over the administration of individual state governments.

/I bet this person also attended a read-along of the U.S. Constitution and jerked off to Glenn Beck.

It takes a special audience to allow the stupidity to flourish.

Went in expecting Florida. Dang I was wrong.

Honestly Florida does have good transparency laws, other than that the place is a joke.
 
2012-03-19 08:47:41 AM  
Now y'see, clearly this means more power needs to be vested in the states.

How is this something Obama has the power to fix?

No, they'll just lick Chris Christie's nuts.

Wow, sure are a lot of Godly, Bible-Belt states making up the bottom of that list.

Meanwhile, my hedonist, atheist state of pot-smoking gay people got a "B"

The scale of corruption is so huge in NY they should get some extra points off, this state is a shiathole. I can't even imagine how frustrating it must be to live in one of the F states.

asimplescribe: How is this something Obama has the power to fix?


"Empty Suit" Obama, no, but "Threat to Western Civilization" Obama, yes.
 
2012-03-19 08:57:59 AM  
The states are run by the federal government, so therefore it's Ballsack HUSSEIN 0bortionfartbomba's fault! DUH!
 
2012-03-19 08:59:58 AM  
This is why republicans should embrace libertarianism more, the people who own them would have an easier time corrupting individual states based on their specific need in that state. If you only need to dump toxic waste into the water in Georgia why the need to make bribes/lobbying efforts on the national level, ya know?
 
2012-03-19 09:03:09 AM  
It is Obama's fault. He suggested that the founding fathers include the 10th Amendment.

/Duh

Subby eats paint chips.
 
2012-03-19 09:07:28 AM  
You have to lead by example.
 
2012-03-19 09:14:14 AM  
Maybe someone should ask RON PAUL about this study. I'm sure he can explain how this is a good thing.

Oh for f*ck's sake.
 
2012-03-19 09:15:47 AM  
Serious headline-backlash. Good, though, that headline sucked, subby.
 
2012-03-19 09:15:56 AM  
In the interests of small government, I propose giving the president control of state governments.

Good lord, this is either supreme trolling or mind melting derp. I can't decide.

The most transparent administration in the country sees what you did there.

/B+ for New Jersey? Seriously?
 
2012-03-19 09:26:54 AM  
So, ok. These states that got higher grades that are so surprising: they have laws on the books, great. Are they enforced? How many prosecutions? Or are these CYOA Close Barn Door After Horses Escaped laws?

Can you tell the difference between the above two fruits pictured above?

If you subby the answer would be NO.

cman: Excuse me, subby, but what does one have to do with the other?


It doesn't matter. It blames Obama for something that would only be within his control if he were the dictator the right wing believes him to be.

Since it's either obvious trolling and/or in complete agreement with the sincerely held beliefs of the admins here at fark, it's guaranteed a greenlight.
 
2012-03-19 09:36:19 AM  
Tennessee got 8th? You're farking kidding me. This is one of the most corrupt, not least.
 
2012-03-19 09:37:06 AM  

Felgraf: Wait, why is it Obama's faults if various STATES aren't transparent?


Because he's near.
 
2012-03-19 09:38:39 AM  
Subby is an idiot, regardless of his actual political standings.
 
2012-03-19 09:44:19 AM  
Obama runs state governments now?

HotWingConspiracy: In the interests of small government, I propose giving the president control of state governments.


In the interests of small government, I propose eliminating state governments.

No, they'll just lick Chris Christie's nuts.


They can't. He ate them already after he put a dash of candied cinnamon on them.
 
2012-03-19 09:52:32 AM  
So the "B" and "C" state politicians aren't necessarily less available for purchase... they're just more honest about it?

/7 out of 50 isn't bad, I guess...

Because fartbongo hates states rights and he has been taking away the rights of states since elected but somehow he lets this slide? Worst president ever.

That's just ridiculous. Chris Christie hasn't seen his nuts since McDonald's started selling McNuggets in 20 piece boxes.

Connecticut (B, 86)

how hard is it to be transparent about "send us all your money"?

There's twisted logic, tortured logic, waterboarded with electrodes strapped to its ballsack logic...then there's subtard's logic.
