"Better an Obama second term with..."

No matter what follows in that sentence - that is absolute suicide and insanity! Obama will destroy this country so fast with EPA, Health & Human Services, Homeland Security, and other unaccountable czar edicts, unfunded mandates, Presidential signing orders, and new supreme court members, that Congress will be thoroughly castrated and won't know what hit them! Wise up - Obama thinks he's above the law! And NO ONE is ever going to impeach the first black president - no matter what he does! And he knows it!
He CANNOT be allowed to be re-elected... under ANY circumstances!

So, when are these folks going to start claiming that Obama started the DHS...?

mxwjs: ZoeNekros: mxwjs: Overfiend: DarnoKonrad: I really didn't think Romney could do it.

I am looking forward to Romney beating Obama in the election.

Romney has always been the Republicans best chance, and he was the most moderate of all the Republican candidates. I think he will make a pretty good president.

as a centrist that leans more left than crazy right. i am working on convincing as many people to vote for romney as possible...

it's not that Obama is doing a bad job, he isn't. it is that Romney will be just fine. he pioneered state healthcare, and it will get the farking conservative babies to shut their mouths and actually do something. by the time he is elected, all the bible thumping nut jobs will not remember santorum and will think Romney is the messiah. They will think they won something and stop whining and dragging down the rest of the nation.

in 2008 i thought if we had a smart president, people would think, "cool, somebody that actually thinks" WRONG. people just put their heads further in the sand, it has been a disgusting 4 years. like spending half a decade with a two year old crying in the checkout line. it is time to just buy the two year old some candy and get this thing rolling again.

/vote for Romney. save this country from further embarrassment of idiot, cry-baby, republicans.

As another slightly left-leaning moderate, I have to say that this is a terrible idea. Even supposing Romney doesn't cave to the republican party, he is a terrible choice given the economy. The one thing he is consistent about is pushing for lower taxes for the wealthy, happy to push the extra burden on the working class.

I will never vote for anyone who has signed the Norquist oath to never raise taxes. Not only is it bad policy, agreeing with it demonstrates a fundamental inability to think critically. I want every single one of those idiots out of congress.

at this point, i kinda look at it like this: what's the worst he's gonna do? no way he lets 3,0 ...


That was pretty much my view in 2000. I was okay with Bush winning, thinking he couldn't do that much damage. What's worse, this time around republicans are in he majority -- with all their Norquist-oath signing members. Like you I am inclined to vote to keep things moderate, but that isn't going to happen if you vote any republican candidate for POTUS. It will set the country back at least a decade.

Don't get the reference. Background?

Robert Budd Dwyer (new window)

I had a videotape of the raw footage from his last news conference. Professional camera work- zoomed in to a closeup of R Budd as he slumped to the floor.

The disgusting part is that his state pension went to his family because under PA law, until sentenicng, he was still state treasurer. Politicians protecting themselves.


I have no problem with that. That is a sensible, honorable, Roman suicide. The dishonor is removed and his family is provided for.

All numbers from the 2010 census.
The poverty line for a household of 4 is defined as less than $22,113
Median income in the US is $26,364
Average income in the US is $39,959

To reach the average income you must go past the 50th percentile.

and here's Howard Beale(Peter Finch) to tell you what things were like in 1976

I don't have to tell you things are bad. Everybody knows things are bad. It's a depression. Everybody's out of work or scared of losing their job. The dollar buys a nickel's worth. Banks are going bust. Shopkeepers keep a gun under the counter. Punks are running wild in the street and there's no one anywhere that seems to know what to do with us. Now into it. We know the air is unfit to breathe, our food is unfit to eat, and we sit watching our TVs while some local newscaster tells us that today we had 15 homicides and 63 violent crimes as if that's the way it's supposed to be. We know things are bad. Worse than bad. They're crazy. It's like everything everywhere is going crazy so we don't go out anymore. We sit in a house as slowly the world we're living in is getting smaller and all we say is, "Please, at least leave us alone in our living rooms. Let me have my toaster, and TV, and my steel belted radials and I won't say anything." Well I'm not going to leave you alone. I want you to get mad. I don't want you to protest. I don't want you to riot. I don't want you to write to your congressman because I wouldn't know what to tell you to write. I don't know what to do about the depression and the inflation and the Russians and the crying in the streets. All I know is first you've got to get mad. You've got to say, "I'm a human being. God Dammit, my life has value." So, I want you to get up now. I want all of you to get up out of your chairs. I want you to get up right now and go to the window, open it, and stick your head out, and yell, "I'm as mad as hell, and I'm not going to take this anymore!" I want you to get up right now. Get up. Go to your windows, open your windows, and stick your head out, and yell, "I'm as mad as hell and I'm not going to take this anymore!" Things have got to change my friends. You've got to get mad. You've got to say, "I'm as mad as hell and I'm not going to take this anymore!" Then we'll figure out what to do about the depression and the inflation and the oil crisis. But first get up out of your chairs, open your window, stick your head out and yell, "I'm as mad as hell and I'm not going to take this anymore!"

This guy was insane. I haven't met a single person in real life that supported him. I think all of his support was bought or trolls.

Next question.

When does Gingrich drop out?

Did he really mean all of that anti-Romney rhetoric or was he just cynically being utilized by the GOP-E to make Romney do better by splitting the anti-Romney vote with Santorum?

My guess is he playing meat puppet for the GOP-E and will wait a week for appearance sake before dropping out himself.

You laugh, but it ain't just the Freeptards...30 seconds on Google, you can find video of Republican senators blaming Obama for something Bush passed, and THEY voted for.

BTW, Fark admins, there is nothing unfetchable about this link:

http://news.yahoo.com/santorum-says-gop-contest-only-halftime-0139529 1 9.html

It totally fetches. This is at least the third perfectly good URL I've tried to post in recent weeks that the fetch tester has thrown out, so you may want to check that script.

/of course, by posting it here in plaintext the other filters are going to add spaces and break it, but if you remove them it works fine.
 
2012-04-11 11:31:28 AM
With Santorum's early withdrawal, the GOP is apparently considering banning him from running again in 2016 for pulling out before he finished.

Yeah, I bet it'd be ridiculously easy.

Just need to word it correctly -- enough truthiness to make it really plausible, a heavy-handed dash of rabid hysteria, and some carefully targeted Tea Party buzzwords.

DARPA = big government, to begin with...

"they want to leave YOU to DIE during a nukular war!!1!" might be an interesting bit to add, since the Net was specifically designed to survive nuke strikes...

THEIR government, not "your government"...

And so on.

abb3w: COMALite J: I've not been able to find any biography on this "Stephen C. Dawson," nor any mention of what credentials he might've had or claimed when he wrote that.

It's "Steve C. Dawson" by the cover. Searching Google Books turns up a couple references to Christian home-schooling texts he's behind. An amazon blurb suggests "Steven Charles Dawson, headmaster of Providence Christian Academy, a Christian day school in Auburn, Massachusetts" − which doesn't show up on a quick web search.

Might just have been a ThD.


Thanks! Of course, I meant to type "Steve C.," not "Stephen C.".

Interesting: The citations on that quote say he's from Rancho Cordova, CA (or at least that's where "God's Povience" was published, though that's a self-published work, and there are Google references to a Steve C. Dawson who lived or lives there), but that was in 1998.

As you noted, a guy of a very similar name wrote a somewhat more professionally published book (published in 2008 from Maranatha Press, available at ChristianBooks.com and numerous similar sites as well as Amazon) called The Story of Liberty: A Study Guide, which, as the title suggests, is a homeschooling study guide (with quizzes and such) for Charles Carleton Coffin's 1879 The Story of Liberty: So You Will Comprehend What Liberty Has Cost, ...and What It Is Worth (republished 1987 by Maranatha Press). In twenty years, it's not unreasonable to expect a man to move from CA to MA, so he may well be the same man, and if he was still publishing in 2008, he may well still be alive. I'll look into it.

theorellior: Mouser: I figure if Obama gets a second term, then that just gives him the opportunity to fark up the country to the point where Congressional Republicans will finally say enough is enough. Maybe then they'll put an end to the Imperial Presidency we've been saddled with since FDR.

They didn't do anything about it with GWB and his wiretapping, suspension of habeas corpus and freedom tickles, why would they start now?


Where were the Democrats when Obama continued those exact same policies? At least I'm willing to admit this is a bi-partisan farkup.

Seriously, if the Republican and Democratic party leaderships are going to shovel the same sacks of crap, what incentive do we have to vote for either?

Kittypie070:

True, but the Net was originally pretty much designed to link together the top military bases, its civilian command structure, and the top military-affiliated research universities.

Military top brass? You get a bunker in Fort FarkYouImOuttaHere and Internet.
Work at the White house or the Capitol? Right this way, sir, the War Room is ready.
Military's favorite egghead? You get a shelter at the University of Kaboom and Internet.

Obama's not actively trying to strip women, minorities, and homosexuals of their rights, or force the country into becoming a Christian theocracy.

So these things happened when Bush had a majority Congress and Supreme Court?

Republicans also aren't really trying to do these things or are you so brainwashed as to actually believe that?
