And to think that these f*ckers vote makes me shudder.

Because they vote.

I'm stunned. These people have no shame. It's reprehensible.

Plus they're batshiat insane about ACA: "...laws that will directly lead to the death of millions..."

WTF is wrong with these people? Besides being clinically insane, I mean?

I'm sure if Sheriff Andy had pulled his gun out more often, he'd be remembered more fondly by the right.

They probably are just repeating the lines they were fed by Lonesome Rhodes, ur um I mean Rush Limbaugh they blur together in my head sometimes.

good ol wingnuttia. put a computer in the hands of an asshat with Republican values, you get this. At least Democrats can form complete sentences and usually cite facts.

So the guy at the BBQ yesterday who was really loud and couldn't stop b*tching about politics. Later on he went home and posted. This is probably some of that.

Turns out Andy played a wingnut early in his life, before he got the sheriff's job and settled down. Great movie btw. Makes you realize this strain of politics is nothing new.

There will come a day that even St. Reagan will be turned upon in the name of purity.

The purity of the GOP being a single 68-year-old white millionaire throwing a gin bottle at his mirror and with his last breath weakly croaking "Liberal!"

Remember that episode where Andy and Barney stopped that Vietnam veteran from coming into town to get something to eat, so he tries to come back and they arrest him and treat him like crap, so he goes crazy and kills a bunch of them and burns the town to the ground?

That one was awesome. Shame it only aired once.

Let's not forget his repression of Mayberry's only true Libertarian, Ernest T. Bass.

Yeah, you try spitting on his grave big man. You'll learn that there's enough shined-up good old boys down here that put our famous sons before politics and would love to beat some internet tough guy ass.

My favorite episode is the one where Andy froze Floyd in carbonite and gave him to Otis, then cut off Opie's hand and nearly killed him. It's a good thing the Darlings came along in their truck when they did.

When's the civil war scheduled for now? I just want to clear my calendar.

Jim Adkisson, James Von Bruun, Byron Williams, Scott Roeder, Kevin Harpham....

That there hasn't already been a single, very large U.S. conservative terror event has not been for lack of effort...

There are so many nuts in this country and because we are such a progressively free country, we give these nuts a voice, a pulpit to spew their crap. After Mother Teresa died I remember reading that she was really evil and worshipped Satan.

Well, I consider allowing people under your care to suffer in pain when you could give them a tylenol because their pain brings the closer to God pretty damn evil.

Does anybody remember a comedy sketch about Quentin Tarantino directing the Andy Griffith show? It had Andy cutting the ear off of someone a' la reservoir dogs. I can't remember if it was SNL or Mad TV or some other sketch show in the early 90's.
 
2012-07-05 01:48:14 PM  
It never fails to amaze me how narrow world-views lead to irrational and out-of-proportion stimulus responses.

People who have thought and studied about history, philosophy, science, the universe, mythology, etc., rarely get overly upset or have temper issues; people who watch Fox news, on the other hand....

So conservatives are against Mayberry now. What's left? That was like the cornerstone of their belief structure.

I don't know, but The Simpsons had an awesome clip where Charles Bronson replaced Andy Griffith on the show.

Yeah, it's 60 years later and most of the demons' names have changed, but the demonology itself doesn't change all that much. However the amount of power we choose to relinquish to the demon hunters can, and does, ebb and flow.

Wow. If that's what mainstream Republicans think of Andy Griffith, imagine what the serious wingnuts think. *shudder*

And yes, the worst of those Blaze comments are from mainstream Republicans.

Because they vote.


And because we are not the types to disenfranchise them just because we disagree with them. That means we need to understand them in order to reach them.

Some of our most iconic and folksy television characters were commies in rl.

Example: Grandpa Walton

/I think he was also openly gay (which was a pretty big deal in 1950s McCarthy era).

Looking back, it seem it should have been easier to work people into a frenzy back then. Communism was a largely unknown 'other.' It wasnt just foreign, it was secret. We rarely got to see behind the Iron Curtain. The problem with the new demon, socialism, is that in order to argue that socialists are controlling this country, you have to bend the definition so far that every other country on Earth has already fallen victim. The 'true believers' love the idea that America is the world's one last, grest hope, but most people look at the rest of the world (or at least Canada and western Europe) and go, well, that hardly seems so terrible.

What an effective rebuttal. You really showed him.



Well tell me then, Miss SmartyPanties.....how do you respond to someone who claims Mother Teresa was evil?
