That's all they do. They are completely incapable of producing better alternatives. Step 2 for them is always ????.

The democrats have some issues and can be improved, but the current GOP offers nothing but mistakes, failure and worse problems.

Waldo Pepper: yes yes I do. just because you say only initials doesn't hide the content behind the letters.


So saying something sucks is profanity?

It refers to a sexual act.

The only reason that BFD was used, or is relevant, is because of Biden's statement at the signing.
It is a humorous reference to what was overheard.
Obama is a classy, proper and rather formal guy. (for the most part)
Professor Obama.

So the tweet, and T-shirt, are funny.
 
2012-06-30 01:20:26 PM
I'm expecting him to stay somewhere near as classy as the kind of Congressman who would shout out "You lie!" in the middle of a speech by the President. When Obama stoops to that kind of no-class, go ahead and send out the Town Crier.

Right now, you've just sent the Town cryer to my door, and if you send him freaking out aboutnothing again. I'm going to have to put a bullet in his head.

The far right lunatic fringe isn't going to get over this easily. They just can't wrap their head around the idea that something is so cleanly legal even a conservative courts won't go all political on the POTUS and dump it.

But if the right is going to go all high road and classy now, I'm okay with that.

funny, maybe. still below the office of the President. the tweet is easily ignored if not for the shirt.

I can forgive pretty much anything Biden does, sort of the Dan Quayle of the Dems.

Go read Joe Bidens biography WIKI

Biden makes the phrase 'career politician' a compliment. Probably the most honest and decent man in American politics.

Comparing him to Quayle, or Cheney, is just farking ridiculous.

BSABSVR: My biggest problem with Obummer McMarxalot, the white-hating usurper is that he can't be civil and mature. Someone should teach him and MOOOOOOOchelle the wookie how to behave like adults.

If so, I'm unlikely to be the last.

You are likely to be the last, mainly because you don't recognize snark when you see it.

If you think BFD on a t-shirt is demeaning the office (or the Office, it seems to vary randomly), but you find endless rationalizations for a man ignoring the fact that an employee was banging little boys, you might be trolling.

The ACA aka Obamacare was and is Big Freeping Deal.

Seriously, I went to Freep earlier and they are right off their meds over this.

/More seriously, it's a baby step in the right direction towards universal health care.

Some 19 yo staffer tweeting this information is not a BFD.

Love the RWers ITT trying to work the "Obama said no new taxes for those making less than 250k and this is a tax therefore Sarah Palin in retroactively the 44th President and Obama has to construct a life sized statue of Reagan by hand entirely out of jelly beans" line of shiat.

From their shambles of a pile of talking points on this issue post SCOTUS decision they appear to have elected the strategy of trying to project Bush the Elders failure to achieve re-election due to his "Read my Lips No new taxes" thing onto Obama.

Morons.

Obama *is* a class act and so is Michelle.

Only a partisan hack would fail to acknowledge this simple truth.

2012-06-30 02:56:09 PM
It is still a big deal. It's a huge deal. The right wants to repeal it to spite themselves and the rest of us because they can't grow the fark up. The left needs to get motivated, and that's what Obama is doing - and the right is outraged about that too, go figure.

It is a huge BFD.

The supreme court set the precedent that the federal government can force you to do anything it wants. It can use the taxing power to say "Do this or you get a tax. The tax can be anything we want it to be. Don't pay the tax and we fark you up."

Congress has always had that power. It's the point the court made explicitly. Congress is elected - you don't like what's happening then you have to elect new representatives to change the law.

Welcome to our representative democracy - been here for over 200 years...

gloat/glōt/
Verb:
Contemplate or dwell on one's own success or another's misfortune with malignant pleasure:

Relevant part.


Wrong. The relevant part is "with malignant pleasure", that's what distinguishes gloating from just patting oneself on the back.

There's no additionally context provided of "this is why you should vote for me". Just dwelling on the victory. NHA's point notwithstanding.

I'm guessing English isn't your first language?

No. They've never had this kind of power over every individual no matter what that individual does.

They'll use it over and over in the future. Here it comes.

And do you really think that your vote matters? Are you represented? It's depressing to think of all the people who believe this.

You're right - it's covered by the Constitution. It's levied on the basis of population, with exemptions for those who purchase health insurance.
 
2012-06-30 03:23:59 PM
Okay, serious question time.

The SCOTUS has decided that the health care law is legit.

25.media.tumblr.com

Romnoid is now saying he'll work to get rid of it his first day in office.

Can a President really do any such thing, or is that grandstanding?

Can you name an instance in history where a direct tax laid by the federal government on individuals has been used as a penalty for noncompliance, ie as not really a tax, but a fine?

You sound concerned.

Everyone avails themselves of the healthcare system during the course of their lives. This law simply recognizes that fact and is mostly in place to punish freeloaders. Why do Republicans like freeloaders?

No it's doesn't.

It's to force healthy people who weren't paying into the (private, for-profit, corporate) system to pay. The "freeloaders" will still get their medicaid. Maybe.
