Lenny_da_Hog: tenpoundsofcheese: source that says 0bama was 6 at the time of the dog eating?

Does it matter? Truly? You know he was a little kid.

Why would you act as though this is something we need to worry about?

My mom served fish when I was 6. I killed her and ate the dog instead.

So vote Republican?

Well yeah. They'll take away funding for NPR, and then they'll stop reporting on extremism in Congress. Boom, problem solved.

Anyone who thinks the Republicans are at fault for the gridlock in Congress is a stupid liberal that needs to take a bath. And no, there's no compromising on this. The failed liberal policies of the last thirty years got us here and it's up to the grown-ups to fix the problem. Step aside and deal with it.

Baz744: Biased liberals are biased. Their book completely fails to discuss how extremist liberals are also ideologically extreme, scornful of compromise, indifferent to facts and evidence, and crippling our constitutional system. How can we take seriously such an obviously partisan hit piece? Would be more credible with a balanced presentation.

dumb ass liberal: I believe the Republicans are doing nothing but obstructing the system and making no effort to aid the people in stopping this recession. I present evidence in the last 4 years of Congress where everything that wasn't "cut taxes for the rich" was met with filibusters with no room for compromise at all


both sides make good arguments

Mrbogey: (political highground!)

Sorry I can't hear you over the sound of someone telling me that Obama is a Secret Kenyan, Muslim, Commie, Fascist, while telling me not to "re-nig" this November.

Sabyen91: pontechango: relcec: it is the democrat party that is beholden to the special interest groups like the mexican lobby

Holy guacamole, that explains all of the fiestas!

Mexican lobby!

/I think I need to add something to my drinking game.

I used to go to a doctor who had a Mexican lobby.

Beautiful building, old adobe. It got destroyed in the Northridge earthquake.

Tremolo: Gyrfalcon: AverageAmericanGuy: Gyrfalcon: If it was a troll, it was too believable as a genuine argument. Trolls should be unreasonable, biatchy and bilious. This sounds like someone who actually wants to say something.

I think I realize why so many posts that aren't get labeled as trolls. There is a serious disconnect between what you think trolls are and what they really are.

Oh, I know what a troll is. But usually a troll who is MERELY trolling for bites doesn't sound like someone who wants to have a serious discussion. Someone who wants to derail a conversation generally makes the diversionary intent a little more obvious.

Baz hasn't responded to any of the bites, and when I look at Fark on my phone I'm treated with "Fight The Wisconsin Recall" and "Get Rid of Obama" ads at the top of the pages. These things are not unrelated. Fark has become the same purveyor of nonsense and sensationalism it used to mock.

Oh, you should meet muck4doo.

Snatch Bandergrip: It's that he didn't try so hard that caused me to bite, I reluctantly confess. The above passage is downright eloquent compared to the usual crap from the mods' troll alts.

That's impossible! Why, it says right in the FARQ that trolling other Farkers is forbidden, so this could clearly never happen!

You know, maybe we are better than we were in the period leading up to the Civil War, but that left us with a virtual fracture in our society. We don't want to see that happen

Not so sure about that. I can think of a few states we could lose.

Nem Wan: Of course, for anyone in the mainstream media, it's forbidden to stop pretending that Democrats and Republicans always have equally valid views about every issue.

Side 1) "The sky is blue"

Side 2) "The sky is tartan plaid"

Media) *without bothering to look up* "The truth must lie somewhere in between"

And here is where the Democrats offer their strong response -- can I use a shower instead of a bath?

AverageAmericanGuy: I wouldn't say it's the entire Republican party or even all Republicans in Congress.

The House is certainly described correctly. Boehner has done great damage to bipartisanship and civility in his tenure as Speaker. He has driven the House Repubs to extreme positions of opposition against Obama and the Democrats and driven a wedge between the parties.

The Senate still maintains at least the outward appearance of cooperation and statesmanship, but as the states decided that electing Senators by consensus is better than selecting them by agreement, the quality of Senators has plummeted to little more than glorified Representatives. Still, the Senate isn't quite as bad as the House in regards to civility.

Worst of all, as long as Boehner and the Republicans run the House, and as long as Obama is still President, this will go on. So if you don't like it, you either vote the House Republicans out completely (not likely given the statistical likelihood of forcing them all out at once) or vote Obama out (much more plausible, statistically).

The choice is yours, libs.

Yeah, Libs. The choice is yours. This is all YOUR fault. Unless you get rid of that negro president you all voted for then all us in the GOP are gonna keep pounding our dicks in America's ass.

Corporate Self: DeltaPunch: whether we admit it or not, the conservatives in the country are effectively winning."

If by winning they are destroying the country then you are correct.

1. Cause economic crisis
2. Dismantle social safety net
3. As thing get worse, pander to bigotry.
4. Convince the people, "X" is the cause of all the problems
5. Usurp freedoms and grant government powers to combat "X"
6. Fascism
7. ???
8. PROFIT! (for a tiny few)

Come to think of it, I think we've heard this song before ...

I'd say they're winning by moving public policy discussion so ridiculously far to the right.
