Elandriel: Is this the thread where Catholicism is OK now? I can't keep up with which Catholics are evil bastards hell-bent on destroying the world and remaking it in their image, which ones are rape raping, which ones are imposing theocratic rule on America, and which ones are nice kind loving people who actually think with their farking brains and not only with what is written in a two thousand year old book.


You make it sound like I have to choose between disliking Paul Ryan and disliking the Catholic Church.

The only thing funnier than Paul Ryan being called on his bullshiat is how far his fortunes have fallen. Over 16 months ago this gollum-like loser was positioning himself to be the Republican nominee. He was all ready and set to give the rebuttal to the State of the Union address and finally make it big time. He was actually cunning enough to realize that maybe the next Republican nominee should start early and get on top of a Republican 'win' (that just happened to shiat itself when coming close to gaining the Senate).

Then three things happened: the Medicare bill was revealed to be a way of getting rid of the program and Ryan took credit for it, Bachmann upstaged him during the 'Teabagger Response' where she looked like she was about to behead a soldier, and then the Republicans figured that Donald Trump would be a better candidate than Paul Ryan. And now that stupid shiathead is begging to be second fiddle to the Romney campaign by doing everything short of sticking his nose up a Book of Mormon.

The fact that Paul Ryan has failed at even trying to attempt to gain power and now has to resort to asking for the VP slot in a doomed campaign tells you everything you need to know about the man. The fact that he looks like his mother still dresses him. The way he shoots off the Republican rhetoric in the most half-assed way. The way he looks like Kirk Cameron pushing another crocoduck and selling it with all the glee of a door-to-door salesman five days away from hanging himself with his unclean socks.

Paul Ryan isn't smart enough to realize Romney is a sinking ship. What the fark does anybody think he has to add to the national discourse if he's this pathetic?

Angry Drunk Bureaucrat: There's some from column A and some from column B.


All I know is I'm tired of having to think for myself with all these differing views and shades of grey. Isn't there a news network or something that can package this all into nice little soundbytes so I can be told how to think? I need to know Who The Bad Guys Are. Things need to be easily compartmentalized, set apart from one another, given a stark contrast. When Catholics are advancing the cause of socialist liberal hell, it blurs the lines, and I find myself adrift without an anchor.

This is not okay.

A'ight, it's almost 5:30 in the morning and I'm a l'il sleepy but did I just read an entire thread full of trolls who not only wanted to suggest that reducing money for welfare was good idea but also a moral idea backed up by Catholic doctrine?

Cos the former notion is just batshiat insane and the latter one is the kinda thing one goes straight to hell for without passing go or collecting 200 dollars.

No social justice, no peace.

WombatControl: And if you really believe that everyone is personally responsible for the suffering they create, directly or indirectly


I don't.

than the architects of the welfare system bare a massive amount of blame for creating a system that has failed to fight poverty but has created a near-permanent underclass locked in a brutal and inhuman cycle of poverty and dependence. That is a moral problem that this country faces, and we cannot face it without jettisoning the tired slogans of the past.


Compared to how impoverished people lived before these programs. I don't think you can make that argument with a straight face. I do admit that there are people taking advantage of these programs but I don't think that we should punish everyone for what a few people are doing.

WombatControl: Rep. Ryan's budget is a start - but to say that a budget which does not actually cut spending, merely the rate of increase and spends more as a percentage of GDP than under President Clinton is somehow terribly immoral is a deeply irresponsible and illogical argument.


It's the combination of this as well as the tax plan he has in place which has a heavy bias towards the rich is what is ridiculous about his plan.

It's also ridiculous that this is a serious plan when Paul Ryan can't even answer questions about the specifics in HIS OWN FARKING PLAN!!!

I'm trying to figure out how you even CREATE a budget based on religion.

"And on the fourth day, we shall allocate education and social services programs!"

The Bible has a Book of Numbers, and the budget is numbers in book form...

Paul Ryan is the sort of person that makes Spiro Agnew look like an upright guy. Paul Ryan is the sort of person that makes Huey Long look like a honest, fair politician. Boss Tweed? Nice guy, up front about what he wanted, unlike Paul Ryan.

Best part is that none of these men looked like a washed up child star from a sub-par TV sitcom in the '60s.

Paul Ryan can, frankly, fark himself.
