Weaver95: um....am I the only one who has no idea what the hell the point of that article was...?


So, you clicked the link, transmitting to a server hosting this property your desire for the server to deliver specific information. Your computer processed many different signals and output that to a large display likely using some form of liquid crystals that, when energized, change their properties and create a human-identifiable pattern of picture and text information.

Your eyes interpreted the light emanating from this device and transmitted that information to your occipital lobe. This section of the brain handed appropriate information off to the various other parts of your brain for their specific processing capabilities. The frontal lobe, medulla oblongata, hippocampus and other areas decoded the data provided and, through an electro-chemical reaction, collectively delivered a big 'ol WTF and shunted all that data to your brain stem, often called the lizard brain.

Your brain stem consumed the data. Mmmm, lizard-brain food. The brain stem gets a workout; this makes the brain stem stronger, the exercise gives it more handles to your general psyche. The more you feed it, the stronger it gets. Keep at it, you'll be in a Hoveround with a poorly-spelled sign.

And that, my friend, is the whole point of any article on TownHall.com.

Everyone knows that State Universities don't do jack for anyone, nor do education grants. And military training and education? Pfft! Who ever succeeded after a career in the socialist military? I mean, the only people who amounted to anything came from privately funded education--none of that milk pap "public education." I mean, who ever heard of anyone ever making it in that boondoggle of the defense industry? Internet? Pfft! Just pie in the sky stuff with nerds huddled around boxes. The REAL guts means that you carve up your own computer with your own two hands, string wires with slave labor across continents, and never, ever, ever use treaty status or trade agreements made by that damn gub'ment, right? Those are for pussies. Taking subsidies? That's slavery! Real men reject such things, and never, ever, ever, rely on anyone else that doesn't has their hands deep into your pockets...

h/t to ozone for this:

This morning I was awoken by my alarm clock powered by electricity generated by the public power monopoly regulated by the U.S. Department of Energy.

I then took a shower in the clean water provided by a municipal water utility.

After that, I turned on the TV to one of the FCC-regulated channels to see what the National Weather Service of the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration determined the weather was going to be like, using satellites designed, built, and launched by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration.

I watched this while eating my breakfast of U.S. Department of Agriculture-inspected food and taking the drugs which have been determined as safe by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

At the appropriate time, as regulated by the U.S. Congress and kept accurate by the National Institute of Standards and Technology and the U.S. Naval Observatory, I get into my National Highway Traffic Safety Administration-approved automobile and set out to work on the roads build by the local, state, and federal Departments of Transportation, possibly stopping to purchase additional fuel of a quality level determined by the Environmental Protection Agency, using legal tender issued by the Federal Reserve Bank.

On the way out the door I deposit any mail I have to be sent out via the U.S. Postal Service and drop the kids off at the public school.

After spending another day not being maimed or killed at work thanks to the workplace regulations imposed by the Department of Labor and the Occupational Safety and Health administration, enjoying another two meals which again do not kill me because of the USDA, I drive my NHTSA car back home on the DOT roads, to my house which has not burned down in my absence because of the state and local building codes and Fire Marshal's inspection, and which has not been plundered of all its valuables thanks to the local police department.

And then I log on to the internet -- which was developed by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Administration -- and post on Freerepublic.com and Fox News forums about how SOCIALISM in medicine is BAD because the government can't do anything right.

I agree. It's just more complicated an issue than will fit on a bumper sticker so here we are. Obama's point that kitchen table inventor or top hat and monocle capitalist either one, is still part of society isn't controversial unless you're a moron.


The only reason it's a "complicated" issue is that the words were stripped of context and sexed up by a media machine with an agenda. The reality actually does fit on a bumper sticker. "Honk if you're delivering goods to market via this interstate."

Hell, let's start a bumper sticker business, you and I:

"Government-backed student loans and grants helped me get this cushy job."

"I can read and count the orders coming to the fry station you profit from."

"I spew dumb sh*t at Freerepublic.com thanks to a massive public/private coalition accomplishment."

"They won't let me have shoelaces, but they give me Velcro thanks to NASA."

Yes, people are born with natural talent. We're not doubting that. However, it takes public school teachers and coaches to fine-tune that talent. It takes taxpayer money to maintain the public fields where these natural talents can be fine-tuned. Public schools help to provide the equipment to play these sports. When these athletes go to college, they typically don't make enough money playing high sports to pay their tuition. Therefore it takes scholarships to fund their education and further their sports career. If and when these players make it to the pros, the arena/studium is subsidized by taxpayer money. Nobody makes it on their own. No man is an island.

I owe my education and career to public education and federally subsidized loans. I owe my success to the public school teachers that pushed me along that way. This author can go fark himself with a spool of razor wire.

By the nuclear fallout and emissions from nuclear plants given to us by government. From the very fires in our barbeques given to us by government. What a wonderful plan. Think of the jobs this provides for EPA administrators, scientists and engineers to figure out how to clean it up. Government offers a constructive direction for professional complainers to target their outrage into constructive uses.

BRILLIANT! A brilliant plan, and just another example of the wonderful things government provides for us all.

We should all weep for joy for government.

CruiserTwelve: hubiestubert: MadAzza: Well, we clearly need better quality government-provided education.

Everyone knows that State Universities don't do jack for anyone, nor do education grants. And military training and education? Pfft! Who ever succeeded after a career in the socialist military? I mean, the only people who amounted to anything came from privately funded education--none of that milk pap "public education." I mean, who ever heard of anyone ever making it in that boondoggle of the defense industry? Internet? Pfft! Just pie in the sky stuff with nerds huddled around boxes. The REAL guts means that you carve up your own computer with your own two hands, string wires with slave labor across continents, and never, ever, ever use treaty status or trade agreements made by that damn gub'ment, right? Those are for pussies. Taking subsidies? That's slavery! Real men reject such things, and never, ever, ever, rely on anyone else that doesn't has their hands deep into your pockets...

I think he was referring to the submitter's misused punctuation.


To be fair, that was more a leaping off point to preempt the eventual tide of DERP that will flow herein. Better to start off with a strong slice of mocking, and than watch folks toe up to the line, and the slowly creep over. Jump right in, I say.

Mr. Coffee Nerves: A local jackwagon is always running his mouth about government interference in letters to the editor and such. He claims that, as a Real 'Merc'n Small BusinessHero, he creates jobs and doesn't count on the government for anything.

It's a paving company. That paves roads. Municipal roads.


I bet that guy rips lips on the government contracts, then complains about government waste.

That one might be my personal favorite when in mixed company. Its easy to hear a contractor gloat how they bilked the government out of extra money on the contract, then during the same day, biatch about waste.

I find myself wishing they'd quit paving roads for a while just so he could go out of business. Not that it'd help change his views, but just so I could laugh at his misfortune.

tomWright: And food. some of the roads are provided by government so government provides food too.

And water. It falls through government provided air, so we would all die of thirst without government.

Oh, Oh, and the AIR ITSELF. It flows over government lands so we would all suffocate without it.

And gravity! why, without all that government land holding the planet together, we would all be floating amongst boulders and dust speeding through space to our very doom!

Thanks government, for making the planet and life as we know it possible at all. Gee, you sure are swell.


But you don't worry about your food, water, and air being contaminated due to government.
