hillbillypharmacist: Mormon Fire Department sprays a burning house through a hole in a sheet.

Also, they have to wear their fireman jackets even while they sleep.

Actually they spray the charred frame of the house after the fire, saving it symbolically.

The Mormon Fire Department is similar to the fire department in the movie "Pleasantville": instead of saying "cat" to get them to act, you say "sister-wife".

Karma Chameleon: Diogenes: I'll be the first to say, "Not helping."

Whatever. We need more firebrands like this. The right can make outrageous comments with impunity, and it's goddamn effective. Look at the course of dialogue in this nation. It keeps moving further and further right. Why is it when a liberal says something outrageous, they immediately have to apologize?

Yeah, when I look at modern political discourse, the first thing that I think is "Man, I sure wish we had more retards spouting gibberish".

There is no need for the wonton destruction of precious capital investment. One shouldn't wish for Romney's house to burn down. One should wish for Romney to get caught in the fire while doing a photo-op and die a painful death, and then his house is given to an orphanage to house the hundreds of needy children it can support instead of the single billionaire that it does support.

Well, the Republicans are used to the idea of an entertainer publicly representing their party (Rush, Hannity, O'Reilly, et al), so they get really confused when the Democrats are capable of viewing an entertainer as just an entertainer and not the mouthpiece for their political party. The confusion leads to fear, the fear leads to anger, and the anger leads to them lashing out like an injured animal at anything that anyone who's not a true-blue, dyed in the wool Republican says.

Tickle Mittens: Here's the thing about that. The consequences of Mitt Romney's professed ideology is that more houses WILL burn down, and in the process result in more people burning to death. Mitt Romney doesn't say it specifically, but his wish is that more people "Die in a fire." Interestingly, there's no particular malice associated with this wish. He just desires that more randomly selected people burn to death in fires. And not just a few of them, but in pretty significant numbers. Numbers big enough that were it one event, the delta between the status quo and his policies would be a long remembered international event. Elect Mitt Romney, and see his policies enacted is exactly equivalent to seeing large numbers of people burn to death in preventable/controllable fires. Then we start adding in the poisoning of drinking water, and increased cancer deaths, et al. What is the offset of these many lost lives, uncountable lost years of productivity? Tax cuts for the wealthy, who will continue poorly allocating wealth lent to them, thus reducing economic efficency even more.

So, yeah, it's morally defensable to advocate the violent murder of Mitt and Ann Romney. Trading two lives of objectively terrible, if not overtly malicious, people for the lives of thousands of random individuals, annually. The devil's calculus provides a clear result.

So... conversely, if I hate Americans and enjoy seeing them suffer... you're saying I should vote for Mitt Romney?


Vote Republican! Americans deserve it.

The Mavrick: Diogenes: skullkrusher: Joy Behar is a loud mouth blow hard. No one cares what she says. Except housewives ages 27-65

No one cares about Ted Nugent either.

Romney courted Nugent's endorsement. Did Obama ask for Behar's help?

Are both sides bad?

Aaannd there's the "degree of wrongness" stupidity I just mentioned.

How dare I try to be fair and even handed, and call out a nut when I see one. I've betrayed the cause!

OK. I hope ALL of Romney's houses burn down!

Am I doing it right?

Joy Behar is dumb. I'm a democrat and she's just dumb. If someone wants to launch a campaign to get her off the air I'm fine with that.

Rush Limbaugh is not dumb. He is vile and has learned how to get rich by being vile. If anyone wants to launch a campaign to give him infinite cock punches, I'll sign on.

Over-react much? I have no problem with what she said. She isn't saying, wow I really hope this guys house burns down. She said it as I hope he gets to feel the repurcussions of his stupid policies. Anyway, his families magic underwear would save them if there really were a fire.

Well, if one person who leans toward the left says anything remotely stupid, they are speaking for every Democrat in the country.

If someone on the right says something stupid, it's an isolated incident.
