HMS_Blinkin: RulerOfNone: Political tripe aside, this guy is a rather decent artist.

He might make realistic impressions of the people and things he's trying to depict in his painting, but that doesn't make him an artist. His work isn't challenging, it is, as you said, political tripe. And political tripe can never be art, as art can never be political tripe. Art can maybe, MAYBE, make a political statement, but it has to do so with some subtlety, and preferably in a way that challenges pre-conceived notions. This garbage only serves to reinforce pre-conceived notions.

Yes, yes I do.

Apparently, the press is the quasi-official vetting process for the Presidency. And, in 2008, they were essentially TOTALLY in the bag for Obama. As a single example, did you not note that a couple of months ago, more than three years into Obama's Presidency, news of his membership in the "Choom Gang" came out? With all the documentary evidence, including numerous pictures, which came out immediately after this announcement, which seems to indicate that the information had been collected, and not mentioned.

Hell, I had a Top Secret clearance, and before I got it, investigators talked to my elementary school teachers. Wouldn't you think Presidential candidates would have to go through the same process, AT A MINIMUM, since the President has a Way-the-fark-above-top-secret clearance?

And, how about that little gem from Indonesia in Obama's Occidental College transcript, showing little Barry Soetoro, the adopted son of Lolo Soetoro, to be a Muslim student of Indonesian citizenship? It would make sense that Lolo (which means "crazy" in Hawai'ian) would change his adopted son's citizenship along with his last name. Also, Indonesian schools only allow Indonesian citizens to attend.

Now, if his adopted father changed his citizenship to Indonesian, Obama could have regained American citizenship by simply filing a paper.

And here's where I stopped reading. A minor who is an American citizen does not lose or surrender their American citizenship because they have gained an additional citizenship through their parents.

I guess you can believe it if you want to, I'll be sitting over here laughing at you.

What is it with you morons? Do you share a single diseased brain? Finding a couple jackasses who don't like Obama, and are racist does not mean that everyone who doesn't like Obama is racist.

Along similar lines, Obama's approval rating started at 60%, and has now fallen to about 45%. According to you, that means that 15% of the electorate just noticed that Obama isn't white. To a racist, it's all about race.

Don't be stupid. Pointing out a few of the obvious bigots who don't like Obama is not the same as saying that everyone who doesn't like Obama is a bigot.


The

Truth is, Obama is losing the constitutional challenges. Obama said a couple years ago that he couldnt offer amnesty to a million illegal immigrants because its against the law. Now he doesnt care, because when SCOTUS strikes it down, he scores big points with Latino voters in an election year. Even the liberal justices are going against him. Example: 9-0 decision against EEOC in a lawsuit attacking a church's employment practices.

GeneralJim: Now, if his adopted father changed his citizenship to Indonesian, Obama could have regained American citizenship by simply filing a paper. There is no evidence that he did that. Further, there is no evidence that he changed his name back to his birth name. That would mean that a foreign citizen has usurped the Presidency under an assumed name. That's the kind of information that would come out of a thorough vetting process.

Now, it is possible that Lolo Soetoro lied on the school admissions forms, and Obama never was legally named Barry Soetoro, and never surrendered his citizenship. If he had been vetted, we would know the answer to whether his Indonesian citizenship and name were faked. But, as far as I know, nobody has searched the Indonesian records to see if he was naturalized. So, no, he wasn't vetted.


Ok, I read the rest of it (wanted a chuckle). Would you be able to provide a link to the documentation of Barack Obama changing his name to Barry Soetoro within the American system? Do you have a copy of his social security card with that name, or anything like that?

Also, I enjoy that you shamelessly reveal your position that because nobody flagged you down and told you about something, it can't possibly have happened.

Obama wasn't just vetted by the Democrats and by the Feds, you moron, he was vetted by the Republicans as well. If there were _any_ truth to any of this bullshiat, McCain would have brought it up during the election. Or would you assert that McCain, and his entire campaign staff, were in on the conspiracy?

So why didn't this "truth" come out before? I'd assume because it took this long for the "intrepid investigator" who "discovered" it to get a cracked copy of photoshop to work.

And so you know, I'm not the only one laughing at you. The assholes who feeding you this bullshiat are laughing at you too. They can't get over how eagerly you eat this shiat up.

Yeah, this is to me what Obama (with his giant Play-doh hands) looks like he's trying to communicate. "Woah, woah, buddy, be careful with that! It's an important historical document!" The presidents behind Obama are sighing and thinking, "It's too late; it's already been tainted," while Lincoln, et al., are laughing it up because they've always hated the Constitution anyway. Or something.

Oh, grrr! I responded to this much earlier but apparently forgot to do the double-submission thing. Probably not worth re-creating it, seeing what kind of Farkommenter you are, but it should only take a couple of minutes, so why not?

GeneralJim: runcible spork: Criminy, even the strict constitutionalists in the Supreme Court and elsewhere understand that the document needs to be interpreted. Your copypasta is a black hole of derp which does not deserve to be dissected and thoroughly counterargued, even though it cries out for such treatment.

"Interpreted?" Okay, show me where first-term abortions are even mentioned in the Constitution.



Why don't you show me where the Constitution mentions abortion of any sort? Do you mean to suggest that government shouldn't have anything to say about abortion in general, because I wonder how that squares with your views. Or, show me where the Constitution indicates how to account for such "unborn citizens." If a slave was three-fifths of a citizen, how should one calculate the proportional personhood of a fetus? How about where it explicitly says that "life" begins when sperm meets ovum?

And, the Second Amendment... Just how does ". . . the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed" mean that the government needs to closely regulate guns?

Because "arms" is open to interpretation.

All too often, "interpreting the Constitution" means "getting around the Constitution." The Founders left VERY clear explanations of what they meant, just in case anyone wasn't clear after reading the Constitution, and Bill of Rights. A hint: The Second Amendment is NOT about hunting or self-defense.

Maybe something about a militia? They weren't very clear about that.

Can you honestly assert that Roberts, Scalia & Co. are not what's commonly called "activist judges" (and by extension, hypocrites), especially after rulings such as Citizens United?

Are you also suggesting that the rich and venerable field of Constitutional scholarship is unnecessary because the Constitution functions essentially as a cookbook for government? Do you think that the framers were so shortsighted so as to be unaware that the world -- technology, medicine, religious dogma, social mores, et cetera -- would not change in the years after the adoption of the founding document? That amendments would be necessary for every new wrinkle?

OK, first off, he's not giving these people amnesty, he's only directed DHS to stop processing deportations on the people in question. It's something that could easily be changed if/when a new President is elected (unless it's changed legislatively, such as the DREAM Act). I'm sorry you don't realize this (as it doesn't make for as strong an attack against the President), but there is no actual amnesty being given at this time.

And after reading the info about that EEOC case, I believe that many of the so-called 'liberal' justices agreed with the decision based on a narrow ruling (i.e. it will only come into play in a very narrow set of circumstances). However, knowing that the Roberts court has been about very broad applications of law, I'm sure that if a church in the future decides to place a wide swath of employment positions under the 'ministerial exception' rule, and another case is brought to them based on that, the SCOTUS will be more than happy to take the original narrow ruling and open it wide enough to pass a supertanker through it.

Eh, we'll be dead long before it happens. I recently read a history of one of the lesser New York auction houses, written in the 1960s, and the author makes a great deal out of the fact that there were a whole raft of popular late 19th artists whose work was basically unsalable by the 1930s. Most of them are still forgotten. Bouguereau gets something of a pass in my book, as he was amazingly talented as a painter. Sadly, he used those talents for evil instead of good.

Ok. As long as I understand your logic, and your debate skills.

I will offer concrete facts to support my position, thankyouverymuch:

Estonia I

Estonia II

Estonia III

I wish I had another example than this one country, but unfortunately, everyone else is trying the same old Keynesian stuff which is not going to work. When another country decides to get a clue, I'll let you know. You won't listen, I imagine, but I'll still let you know.


So your single example is Estonia? It has a population of around 1.3 million. More people and born and die in the US every year than Estonia has total citizens. It has an economy smaller than a number of our states. The GDP of Washington, DC, with a population about half the size, is about ten times as large.

Oh, and from Wikipedia:

Between 2007 and 2013, Estonia receives 53.3 billion kroons (3.4 billion euros) from various European Union Structural Funds as direct supports by creating the largest foreign investments into Estonia ever.[147] Majority of the European Union financial aid will be invested into to the following fields: energy economies, entrepreneurship, administrative capability, education, information society, environment protection, regional and local development, research and development activities, healthcare and welfare, transportation and labour market.[148]

They received massive external investment in the time period during which they supposedly achieved stunning economic success due to cutting government spending.

Your argument is crap.

GeneralJim: DERRRRP


Still farkin' that "American citizenship law is subordinate to Indonesian citizenship law on American soil" chicken, eh?

Because last I checked, parents cannot ever renounce American citizenship on behalf of their minor children -- not even sovereign-to-themselves almighty Indonesian citizens (8 USC S1481), American citizenship law allows for dual nationality and dual citizenship (upon which is no Constitutional barrier hinged to serving as president), and so does Indonesian citizenship law for minor children.

So even if everything you just said happened to be the complete, whole truth (which it isn't in the first place), Obama was still eligible to run, and eligible to serve, as President.

Mrtraveler01: zerkalo: Fun fact: Putin is seen in the background of "Wake up America", applauding. Yeah, I'm sure that reflects reality right now

In case you didn't know, I was being sarcastic

I'm pretty liberal (especially by the standards where I live), and I love this guys artwork.

I don't think there is anything else as campy as the brilliant pieces this deranged nut has been able to entertain ourselves with.

I wonder if the guy knows that he's a laughing stock of the art community and the community as a whole outside of the insular Conservative/Tea Party groupthink?


I can support this. Its like he's the Art Frahm* of politics. Warning link slightly NSFW. And celery.

Art Frahm was a marginally talented artist who kept recycling the same incomprehensible tropes in his paintings in the 1950s, which when viewed snarkily later have a certain charm to them. Which I suspect McLaughlin's will have in years to come. Because they're incomprehensible and weird and show single-minded dedication... once the subject matter fades, there's much campy humor to be had.

Generation_D: Its like he's the Art Frahm* of politics.


I'd say he's more like the Rob Liefeld of politics. Crass, exploitative "art" that completely ignore reality in favor of fueling adolescent-minded fantasy.

At least McNaughton can draw feet.

I love how they show Lincoln applauding while he's the one who suspended haebeus corpus, moved us to fiat currency, and violently put down the Confederate rebellion these assholes jerk off to. He should be on the other side, but Republicans have Reagan and what they imagine the founding fathers to be like as the only presidents who are on the side they think they are on.

Oh and Washington violently put down a tax rebellion too. It's too funny watching these tards invent history and shoehorn folks into their stupid fake libertarian philosophy.

Animatronik: jcooli09: GeneralJim: vygramul: (Watermelons on the White House lawn, sent by Los Alamitos Mayor Dean Grose, in March 2009, a scant two months after Obama was inaugurated -- I'm sure they were just criticizing 3.5 years of bad policy decisions, though)
What is it with you morons? Do you share a single diseased brain? Finding a couple jackasses who don't like Obama, and are racist does not mean that everyone who doesn't like Obama is racist.

Along similar lines, Obama's approval rating started at 60%, and has now fallen to about 45%. According to you, that means that 15% of the electorate just noticed that Obama isn't white. To a racist, it's all about race.

Don't be stupid. Pointing out a few of the obvious bigots who don't like Obama is not the same as saying that everyone who doesn't like Obama is a bigot.

The
"It must be racism, what's not to like about Obama's policies' theme is well established as a Democratic party campaign theme and among liberal farkers.


only after Republicans refused to admit anything like Obamabucks was racist. Do YOU think the Obamabucks pic is racist?

Obama said a couple years ago that he couldnt offer amnesty to a million illegal immigrants because its against the law.

See, this is where FOXNews has you fooled. And even though I can prove it, it won't change your mind. Why? For the same reason God doesn't bother letting a dead man go back to earth and warn his brothers. They simply won't believe him.


The FULL clip of Obama has him saying the exact opposite of what you were shown on TV.

And Washington put down the Whiskey Rebellion specifically to drive home the point that the Federal government has the right to impose taxes.

THAT, I think, is one of the finest creative representations in the political realm I've ever seen. I know it's a few years old, but it's still amazingly potent.

You could easily replace Dumbya with Obama at this stage in the game. Which makes it all the more depressing, to me.

We are getting so farking played.
