It has nothing to do with being black. How about the number of Mexicans killed as a result of our ATF exporting guns. How about the number of people killed by our illegal war in Afghanistan.

The billboard often features anti-Obama messages, and is sponsored by The Ralph Smeed Foundation, the supporters of the late activist for libertarian causes in Idaho. Foundation member and former state lawmaker Maurice Clements, told The Idaho Statesman the billboard is a response to Obama's 'broken promise' to bring home the troops.

"We're all outraged over that killing in Aurora, Colo., but we're not outraged over the boys killed in Afghanistan," Clements explained to the paper, and added that he's not trying to connect Obama to Holmes, he's just comparing the way society reacts. "We're not saying that Obama is a lunatic," he said.


He never promised to bring home the troops from Afghanistan. He stated over and over again that he felt that that was the war to focus on.

They probably should have seen the backlash coming, but they aren't too far off. The party with which a politician affiliates is pretty irrelevant, in the grand scheme of things. Fact is, there are a distubing number of psychopathic traits found in the world of politics, mostly because those traits are CELEBRATED in that environment. Mind you, there has been some exaggeration in the media - it's not as high as 10% as I've seen way too many articles state, it's nowhere NEAR that. Even Robert Hare himself, the guy who not only did that particular research on corporate psychopathy, but came up with the most reliable psychopathy checklist we have at this point, stated outright that his research was misquoted and misrepresented. But it IS higher in those populations because of the nature of them. Think about the kinds of traits that get a person elected - glibness and charm, grandiosity, ability to lie and manipulate when necessary, passing the buck skills and unwillingness to take responsibility... Congratulations, you just went through most of the personality section of the PCL-R. These guys have to be able to sign a bill into law that will put hundreds on the street, send them to war to die, you name it, and all without a shred of remorse or affectual consequence. Politics is a very good place for them. We create our own monsters, then get mad when they breathe fire on us.

Yeah, well unlike Fartbongo, Bush didn't have a time machine. If "THE ONE"TM can't be bothered to pick up Marty & Jennifer to fix the mistakes of the past, why should anyone vote for him? Bet he doesn't even care about fixing the results on American Idol. He truly is history's greatest monster (doubly so because he has a time machine).

There certainly won't be a different Republican candidate, that's just not going to happen. I think it's more that no one really supports Romney. "Anti-Obama" does not equal "pro-Romney"; which is why Obama will win the election even if it's much closer than it should be. (see also: Bush vs. Kerry in 2004 for a similar situation.)

This is how I would run the Romney campaign. There is no way you can make an Obama voter vote for Romney. None at all. You probably can't even convince most of the undecided. What you can do, is poison the well and demoralize everyone. Throw anything at Obama you can - community violence, wars, deficits, health care, tattoos and bar mitzvahs - it doesn't even have to be real or make any sense whatsoever. Just throw it at him and be angry about it. The stupider the claim, the angrier you should be. You're too angry to make any damn sense and that's why people should listen. Make enough people just so disillusioned that they'll vote 3rd party (ha!) or not vote at all.

I'm not in anyway saying this billboard has anything to do with Romney, what I am saying is that it is the best strategy there is to get under the skins of the not terribly committed, but probably voting Obama voters.

This is strictly a referendum on Obama. Romney is a placeholder candidate - he'll show that there is a white alternative to Obama, but any time he makes the mistake of opening his mouth it's an unmitigated disaster for his campaign. No one likes him, but some hate Obama more.

EnviroDude: cman: Well, duh.

The billboard compares the President to a mass murderer, which does nothing but portray the typical stereotypes of black men being monsters. All this right-winged fool is doing is just spreading his bigotry

It has nothing to do with being black. How about the number of Mexicans killed as a result of our ATF exporting guns. How about the number of people killed by our illegal war in Afghanistan.


So basically you're saying it should have a picture of Bush on it......or Obamas secret time machine.
 
2012-07-29 09:11:20 AM  
I love that people are equating Iraq and Libya to show that Obama is as bad as Bush. Good luck with those comparisons. I farted last night while my cat was sitting on the other end of the couch. He jumped up and shouted "hiroshima!" and then passed out. Totally comparable.

I also love that Obama broke a promise of ending the war in Afghanistan when he has never suggested anything like that...ever. Not to mention people complaining that he hasn't brought troops home when, in bizarro world, they are complaining that he is surrendering with a cut-and-run strategy.

If someone HAD fired back, it would've been ineffective at best, unless they just HAPPENED to bring a gun loaded with rounds that could pierce body armor. That's if they could even hit the guy in the dark, tear-gas filled theater. At worst (And most likely), a crossfire would have caused even more casualties.

In short, real life isn't an action movie, dipshiat. Even in a movie theater.

Neeek: Uncle Tractor: starsrift: Not only did Obama NOT promise to pull out of Afghanistan, he was awarded the Nobel in Oct 2009; he'd basically just managed to take office and move in, by that point; he hadn't killed thousands yet.

As a norwegian .. I actually had to check the calendar to see whether it was april first when I hear Obama had been awarded the NPP. I still don't understand why. The best theory I can come up with is that the committee was happy that the US had elected a non-republican president ...

... in which case it would have been better to give the award to the US voters in general for "turning away from the destructive path they've been on" or some such thing, and let Obama pick it up on behalf of said voters.

Ah well. The NPP is a hit or miss thing. Always has been, always will be.

I don't think Obama thought he should have gotten the Nobel Peace Prize. It's one of those things that's just weird.


I think Obama got the Nobel Peace Prize for not being Bush, Cheney, McCain, or Palin. If you covered your ears you didn't hear Cheney praising Obama's national security team before Obama took office. A couple years later, Cheney said Obama had learned Bush and Cheney's policies were correct.

So if not for this billboard Obama would have had a shot at Idaho? This story deserves about fifteen minutes of attention but once again, what difference does it make in the larger scheme of things? Idaho is one of those states that will go for Romney even if it comes out that he's providing aborted fetuses for his wife to suck the stem cells out of and his plans to take the oath of office on the Book of Mormon (incidentally...).

We get it, repubs. You've nailed down the vote of every racist, 1 percenter and credulous dolt in the country. Fortunately for the rest of us, that is not enough to win you the presidency. How will you reach out to the ten percent of the country that is repelled by blatant racism, unhappy with Obama's performance but unconvinced by your vague assurances that Romney's experience as a vulture capitalist will turn the country around? So far I've seen a great deal of pandering--unnecessary pandering, ultimately counterproductive pandering--to your base but nothing at all substantive to support your claims of a superior economic program. Ironically, Romney could simply tell the truth: "When I am elected I will call all my obscenely wealthy friends and tell them to start hiring again--just as I asked them to stop hiring in order to undercut Obama's economic recovery-- and they will do so, instantly reversing the decline in the economy."

That would work.

That is, if the guy carrying a concealed gun shoots the shooters accurately and doesn't hit an innocent bystander in the process. Which in a dark and tear gas filled movie theater is very low.

You're right, this isn't like the movies where some average joe can shoot someone in a dark and teargas filled movie theater dead on. You're just going to put people's lives in even more risk as the crowd won't be able to tell who is the actual shooter and who is trying to kill the shooter.

So when Bush waged war

based on lies killing 4000+ Americans and costing over one trillion dollars, that was alright. But when Obama wages war (continuing the same policies started by Bush) using drones that cost hundreds of billions of dollars less with no loss of American lives, that makes him comparable to a mass shooter.

Gotcha.

Obama's policy of using drones to kill and maim children.

EnviroDude: cman: Well, duh.

The billboard compares the President to a mass murderer, which does nothing but portray the typical stereotypes of black men being monsters. All this right-winged fool is doing is just spreading his bigotry

It has nothing to do with being black. How about the number of Mexicans killed as a result of our ATF exporting guns. How about the number of people killed by our illegal war in Afghanistan.


"Illegal war in Afghanistan?" Are you farking kidding me? Clowns like you were salivating for Bush to get us involved in as many foreign wars as possible, but now that a Democrat is president, those wars are suddenly illegal?

If you supported it then, which i guarantee you did, then you had better support it now. Otherwise, you'd be admitting that all of you shills are just treaherous retards who put their party in front of their country.

Obama shouldn't have a "peace prize", especially considering we've been involved in an unnecessary war for his entire presidency. As commander in chief of the military, all he has to do is bring everyone home. Before ppl get pissed at that: Bush sucked just as bad.

So he should have just pulled everyone out all at once, and make an already-unstable region collapse completely, while leaving a LOT of people over there VERY pissed at America?

Can't see why he wouldn't do something like that. Nope.


Yes. No, it wouldn't have "collapsed". Leaving would make them pissed at America? Consider yourself in their shoes. How would you feel about your parents moving back in with you?

A clarification would be great here.


Mrtraveler01: It's funny that conservatives started to care about killing and maiming children in foreign countries only after a Democrat became President isn't it?


Lord_Baull: So when Bush waged war based on lies killing 4000+ Americans and costing over one trillion dollars, that was alright. But when Obama wages war (continuing the same policies started by Bush) using drones that cost hundreds of billions of dollars less with no loss of American lives, that makes him comparable to a mass shooter.


Dog Welder: Do you remember when all the Republicans were crying about how we weren't doing anything in Libya, and then they complained when we started doing something about Libya, and then they complained about how we weren't doing enough in Libya, and then they complained about how we weren't putting boots on the ground in Libya?

Valid argument to make but I'm not sure. He was able to get these guns in Denver with just a simple background check which consisted of nothing more than a speeding ticket. The fact he was a mental nutcase didn't come out to anyone until after the shooting.

I think the fact he purchased thousands of rounds of ammo should've sent a red flag to someone at the online retailer he bought them from.

I support rights to buy standard hunting rifles and ammo. Anything else should require a proof of sanity not just a database check.

Obama's foreign policy has resulted in many deaths, yes. Some were even civilians. And many were American soldiers.

So, what to do? Vote him out and give the Big Chair to Romney?

Romney, the guy who would have doubled down in Iraq? Romney, who would double down in Afghanistan? Romney, the guy who would go all in on Iran? Romney, who seems intent on starting a new Cold War with Russia? Because, if you dislike Obama because his policies have resulted in the deaths of thousands, your alternative is Romney, who is just looking to get a couple bloodbaths started in the Middle-East.

Which is why this particular derp will not be part of the Romney machines attack on Obama. They will never say that Obama has too much blood on his hands, because they want their president to be soaked in blood up to his neck.

I observed how liberals behaved, the things they said, and the sort of images they liked to invoke while Bush was in office. I continue to watch how they behave even today. This is precisely the sort of thing liberals have engaged in since they lost in 2000 and it hasn't slowed down even slightly since then. As I said when Obama was inaugurated, I want every liberal to look back at how they've behaved over the last 8 years and think long and hard about it... Because that was the level we sunk to, and now you can expect no better from your opponents.

Of course, we've listened to the screeching about racism, or various other stupid things because admitting that Republicans dislike Obama for political reasons would mean having to admit that all that vitriol spewed by liberals while Bush was in office was also for political reasons. No more, no less. That's all it's ever been and ever will be about.

I have heard it argued that Obama did not start the War in Afghanistan and cannot be held responsible for the carnage that has occurred during his presidency. Obama, though, made a decision to vastly expand that war. Since Obama took office the US has spent more than $386,000,000 in the war, far eclipsing what Bush spent ($172 billion over 8 years). See Table 1 at http://www.fas.org/sgp/crs/natsec/RL33110.pdf While Obama has commanded that war, 1432 American servicemen have been killed (twice as many as under Bush) and there's been a tripling of the forces there. The insurgency in Afghanistan is stronger now than it ever was - attacks this year are up 11% over last year. Neutral organizations like the International Red Cross says the war conditions are worse now than they have ever been. The US just handed over control of central Maidan Wardak Province to the Afghans, but the provincial governor said this was irresponsible because of the security situation and the inability of the Afghan Army to control it.

Now let's look at a few of the bombing results authorized under (and by) Obama. The most recent big strike, June 7, 2012, killed 18 civilians, 9 of them children. http://www.bostonglobe.com/news/world/2012/06/08/apologizes-for-civili an-deaths-afghan-strike/jtTcQabehEtmrbdYr64ApM/story.html Some of the larger ones - Granai, May 2009, where the Afghan government said of the 140 civilians killed 93 were children. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Granai_airstrike

A UN report issued in February 2010 said that of 346 Afghan children killed in 2009, more than half were killed by NATO forces.

By 2012, hundreds of civilians have been killed in an unnecessary war. Certainly, a couple hundred kids have been killed.

The billboard comparison is inapt only because Obama should be tried at the Hague, along with Bush, Cheney, and Rumsfeld (the latter for the Iraq War).

Like how Bush had a 93% approval rating after 9/11? Democrats but partisanship behind them, and gave Bush a chance. Every critique Bush got after 9/11, every drop in approval rating, down to 30% by the time he left office, he earned, honestly, through being a complete fark up.

I also love how you think the Clinton years were some sort of era of "good feelings", with only honest debate and bipartisan cooperation, and not the 9 years of Republican false accusations of murder, drug-dealing, raping, and financial impropriety. Truly, you do your side a credit.

Can any of you who thinks a random guy with a gun could have stopped this show me an example where that has happened?

Lets see the North Hollywood shootout the police took out the shooters eventually after 11 officers and seven civilians where injured, this was in broad daylight with many police officers involved.

1986 Miami shootout where eight FBI agents and two suspects got in a shootout, and two agents were killed.


These are only shootouts where the cops were involved, cause cops are armed all the time.

Idaho is one of the most inbred places I have seen since living in the south, and that is saying something. For example, Potlatch, Idaho is full of backwards inbreds to the point of making you want to just floor it and never stop.

Ralph Smeed was by all accounts a typical Libertarian douchenozzle.

Died at 88 in 2010 but the derp that men do lives on if they leave a sizable chunk of change behind.

Enter "Smeed Foundation member and former state lawmaker Maurice Clements".

Has a massive brain fart one day that is made real when he arranges to have a pants-on-head retarded billboard comparing Obama to the Aurora CO shooter erected in the heart of tater country.

A move so dickish and wrong that even RW Idahoans call the guy out for being a wrong-headed weasel.

The trolls can't even find an excuse for it.

They're reduced to trying to deflect to the ATF thing or claim that "Oh yeah, Liberals did it first".

Do you just have no explaination for you actions or beleif systems? Is everything you do and beleive based off of liberals?
A clarification would be great here.

I observed how liberals behaved, the things they said, and the sort of images they liked to invoke while Bush was in office. I continue to watch how they behave even today. This is precisely the sort of thing liberals have engaged in since they lost in 2000 and it hasn't slowed down even slightly since then. As I said when Obama was inaugurated, I want every liberal to look back at how they've behaved over the last 8 years and think long and hard about it... Because that was the level we sunk to, and now you can expect no better from your opponents.

Of course, we've listened to the screeching about racism, or various other stupid things because admitting that Republicans dislike Obama for political reasons would mean having to admit that all that vitriol spewed by liberals while Bush was in office was also for political reasons. No more, no less. That's all it's ever been and ever will be about.

If this sort of thing bothers you, and it should, then liberals can start by cleaning themselves up because... You're the ones that brought us down here.



So as long as you can point to some remotely comparable precedent from Liberals, Conservative actions are justified. Got it.

It's not particularly alarming, actually; it's a policy about what the default consideration for casualties should be in the absence of specific information (which might be a very long time coming in some cases). After all, the strike zones aren't picked at random by monkeys throwing darts at a board; they're based on intelligence regarding militant activity.

In a similar vein, if a run-of-the-mill military target was bombed during a conventional conflict, should all the casualties be considered to be people completely unconnected with the conflict unless it could be specifically shown otherwise for each individual person, or should it be the reverse of that? The former might even be preferable to some people, but I can't think of any countries or eras where something like this was actually put into practice.

I find it strange that Obama was so against water boarding captured terrorists, but has no problem turning them into grease stains on the side of some dusty hill. I might add that information we gleaned from those water boarding sessions was key to finding Bin Laden. Something I guess he should have blamed on Bush.

Personally, I rather see more effort go into capturing these idiots and go back to dumping water on their heads and see what Intel we can get.

FTFA Regardless of what the billboard is really comparing, the message is not going over well with the area's residents, who are outraged, calling it "offensive," "abhorrent," and "pathetic," reports NBC News.

There's the problem! They put the billboard up in an area with residents who are capable of using multisyllabic words!

In a way the Aurora shooting shows just how much has changed recently. Did anyone blame the victims of Columbine? Arguably there was some blame there even. I mean they blamed video games, and teh devil muzic, but they didn't generally say "Well they should've just dodged the bullets or tossed the pipe bombs back!"

Hell, did anyone blame Rep Giffords for getting shot in the head? If they did, I honestly don't recall it.

You forgot to thank the theater that disarmed everyone at the door, making everyone in there a target for a nutcase.

If someone HAD fired back, it would've been ineffective at best, unless they just HAPPENED to bring a gun loaded with rounds that could pierce body armor. That's if they could even hit the guy in the dark, tear-gas filled theater. At worst (And most likely), a crossfire would have caused even more casualties.

In short, real life isn't an action movie, dipshiat. Even in a movie theater.

Thanks for proving your ignorance/fear of guns, dipshiat. As soon as this guy realized he was being shot at, he would have rabbited out the door, because he obviously was NOT on a suicide mission. And being hit by a bullet through body armor is like being hit with a large hammer. It will knock the crap out of you. It's not like a movie where a little piece of fabric pops off but the shooter just keeps on walking.


Good to see a member of the 121st Fighting Keyboardists chiming in.

Didn't do very well in physics class, did you? The force of impact has to be equal to the kick of the firearm. That's how the real world works. Are you actually suggesting that firing a handgun is like being hit with a large hammer? If not, where, pray tell, did the extra force come from?

You're not only ignorant, you're a mind reader too. You know exactly what the shooter would have done. Brilliant! Got any stock tips for me?

Ever see the video of the LA bank shooting? Those gunmen in full body armor sure were running away weren't they? No, they weren't? They were absorbing hits all the while firing back? That's not possible in your world, is it?

Those cops with handguns and cover stood no chance against those guys. It took a sniper with a high power rifle and all the time in the world to take them down. Now factor in a darkened theater, tear gas, no cover and general panic and what do you get? A massacre of even armed people.

Look, if you want to masturbate about how much of stud you would have been with your compact concealed carry in that situation, go right ahead but some things are best kept to ones self.

First, given the circumstances I'm not sure if a CCW holder would have made a difference or not. Second, there are conflicting reports about whether or not he was wearing body armor or just a tac vest. Finally, in the north Hollywood shoot out did no one in the area have a rifle they could have given the police? You could blindly reach into my safe and randomly pull out a rifle that would have drilled through that armor like it wasn't even there.

Okay, let's think for a second, shall we?

The terrorists are in Pakistan, or some other country, not always Afghanistan. You want us to go into Pakistan with troops, to capture the terrorists, not kill them with drones, and water board them, to get more information about terrorists.

Now, do you understand, no one, not Bush, not McCain and not Romney have ever said they would send troops into Pakistan or any other country to get terrorists? In fact, all three criticized Obama for saying he would send troops into Pakistan to get Osama, all three characterized it as invading an ally. Under Bush, we had a chance to do just what you are suggesting with Al Zawahri, the number 2 man in AQ, and the Bush administration refused to do it. Only Obama has suggested and actually implemented sending troops into another country to get terror suspects, in bagged Osama as a result. Would have been nice to get him alive, but we did get his computers, so there is that.

Now, Romney, has gone on record supporting the drone strikes, even against U.S. citizens. He supported the Osama operation only after we got him. He has not pledged to do what you said, go after the terrorists and waterboard them if they are found in other countries. Your position is not supported by any candidate running for office, and was not supported by the Bush administration, the last administration in office, and the administration that will be supplying the majority of military and foreign affairs advisers to a Romney administration. Also, the Bush administration quickly abandoned water-boarding, so don't think it will be coming back any time soon.

Bottom-line, you want an administration that offers the best chance of catching terror suspects alive, even if they are in other countries, then Obama is the clear choice.

Personally, I rather see more effort go into capturing these idiots and go back to dumping water on their heads and see what Intel we can get.


Actually water boarding is not an effective way of getting truthful information out of terrorists.

All of the useful information we got out of Khalid Shaikh Mohammed we got by good old fashioned trickery. When the CIA took over and started waterboarding him, he stopped giving us information, even though they waterboarded him 183 times.

So, I want to understand the logic of someone who says, "Well, we waterboarded him 182 times, and he didn't give us the information we wanted. But maybe if we keep trying . . . "

So you got nothing then huh?

How boring.

I've learned long ago never to argue with idiots, because they drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.


That's a cute way to say "I cannot refute your point".

Again, you got nothin'. Go do your homework and come back with FACTS, not fabrications.

One last thing while you're on mom's computer: If you can't see the difference between combatants being killed in a strategic military strike, and suspects being tortured, you don't even know what it is to be an American. You've missed the point.

We're supposed to take the high road. If we don't, then there is no difference between us and them, and the terrorists win. Do you understand that? Not torturing people makes you more American. Not less.

If someone HAD fired back, it would've been ineffective at best, unless they just HAPPENED to bring a gun loaded with rounds that could pierce body armor. That's if they could even hit the guy in the dark, tear-gas filled theater. At worst (And most likely), a crossfire would have caused even more casualties.


Or worse yet.
Guy (a) gets up and shoots the gunman dead. another guy then looks up, sees Guy (a) with a gun and shoots him, thinking theat he is the gunman.

Prcoess repeats.

[dilbert.com image 640x199]

But ultimately, everybody (who survives) is safe, right?


Well again, given the chaos and tear gas I'm not sure if a CCW holder would have been able to make a difference or not but let's say you're a CCW holder and are close enough to take a reasonably safe shot at the shooter. Do you feel it would be worth the personal risk of being misidentified as the shooter to try and take down the shooter? Although I have a feeling if there were multiple CCW holders there, and they were allowed to carry there, that they'd be less likely to think you're the threat given that you're dressed in normal clothes and you're shooting at the guy wearing tac gear at the opposite side of the theater. This is all monday morning quarterbacking though.

"This billboard is offensive to all those lives lost and affected by the shooting,"

Exactly. Using this for their little political maneuvering is totally over the line. If they were talking about Obama's response to the shooting, or how his actions somehow led t it, that would be one thing, but this is nothing but latching on to a tragedy to use it for nothing more than this is a joke, and I am losing more respect for the Republicans day by day.

This is making it extremely hard to be an Independent, BTW....

God, I love living in Utah, and would like to live in Idaho( I lived there while I was a kid, and it was beautiful), but when you have pricks like this making the news in a state that small, it's easy for everyone to get labeled with the same brush...

Drone strikes probably. Judge, Jury, Executor.

It was fun watching the Republican debate on foreign relations after reading all the Fark threads on the death of al Awalki, in which Fark independents tried to make the al Alwaki assassination into Obama's "New Unconstitutional Power Grab!" Both Romney and Gingrich fully supported the strike, you see, guaranteeing that Obama's use of drone strikes will never be mentioned again by the campaign. Must be tough, being a Fark independent, seeing all your outrage expended on actions that will have no affect on the presidency.


I stated nothing about the reactions of conservatives of the policies of Romney. But I can link you to many groups who were loud about drone strikes prior to O taking office. I'm personally against targeted strikes outside of actual war, and I'll remain consistent on that no matter who the president is. Nice strawman argument you've made up for yourself, however.

I was not calling you a Fark independent, although rereading my post, I can see where you might think I was saying you were. I was speaking in generalities. Clearly, given your position, you are a true independent and won't be voting for Romney because he has pledged to continue drone strikes. I commend you for your consistency. It is the Fark independents who tried to make an issue of the strikes prior to Romney making his support known that I found most amusing and was trying to share my amusement.

As far as the anti-war protesters, I cannot speak for them. I supported the war in Afghanistan when it began and until Bush farked it up, and supported the war in Iraq until it became clear that there were no WMDs and the Bush administration farked it up. I assume they are happy that the war in Iraq is over and most were never strongly against Afghanistan anyway, AFAICT.

Obama's policy of using drones to kill and maim children.

The billboard says thousands of people. We've killed and maimed maybe a few hundred that way.

From where i sit, the drone strikes are both more effective and cause less collateral damage than some of the other options we have out there.

Yes, 14 die, "some are suspected terrorists." Drone Strikes are not being used correctly, again, it's judge, jury, executioner. It should never be used on merely SUSPECTED terrorists, leaders maybe, but even then is iffy due to the collateral damage of killing family when they use it on buildings.

It has now been more than 15 minutes since I invited you to post links to groups which opposed drone strikes before Obama took office, and no longer opposed them after Obama took office. Not only that, you have since made at least one post. The inference is strong that you can find no such groups.

Since you declined my invitation, you need not shoot yourself in the head. However, it is now established fact of reality that you are without value as a human being. Moreover, this means Obama automatically wins re-election, and all cons can get down on their knees and suck it.

randomjsa: blastoh: So, you are.... 5? maybe 6? What is it with conservatives that everytime they are called out for doing something stupid, instead of trying to rationally explain their actions, they instead reply with "something something something liberals something?"

Do you just have no explaination for you actions or beleif systems? Is everything you do and beleive based off of liberals?
A clarification would be great here.

I observed how liberals behaved, the things they said, and the sort of images they liked to invoke while Bush was in office. I continue to watch how they behave even today. This is precisely the sort of thing liberals have engaged in since they lost in 2000 and it hasn't slowed down even slightly since then. As I said when Obama was inaugurated, I want every liberal to look back at how they've behaved over the last 8 years and think long and hard about it... Because that was the level we sunk to, and now you can expect no better from your opponents.

Of course, we've listened to the screeching about racism, or various other stupid things because admitting that Republicans dislike Obama for political reasons would mean having to admit that all that vitriol spewed by liberals while Bush was in office was also for political reasons. No more, no less. That's all it's ever been and ever will be about.

If this sort of thing bothers you, and it should, then liberals can start by cleaning themselves up because... You're the ones that brought us down here.


You seemed to have forgotten the Clinton Administration, where redneck sniping was made legal. You *really* think it all started with Bush Jr? I would ask you the color of the sky in your world, but I'm sure my human eyes couldn't render those colors.

1) I am not a single policy voter. Sorry. I am simply against drone strikes as they are currently used, especially on only suspects and not known terrorists. It's bad policy.

Again, not every anti-war protestor was simply against Iraq. But there has been a substantial decrease. It's not necessarily from just O being in office, it could be simply a dying over time, but there is a lot less protests these days than there were. I used to see them weekly up until about 3 years ago. I truly believe that the fact they were used to oppose GOP politics were a major player in the furor they had.

See, now you have made me amused. I assumed, given your truly impassioned and articulate opposition to drone strikes, that you actually cared. Actually, you only "care." You are opposed, but, hey, not so opposed that you won't vote for a guy to do exactly what you say you oppose. So, you are exactly the kind of Fark independent I find amusing. So full of passion but not full of passion enough to actually do anything about it.

As for me, I never opposed drone strikes, not when Clinton did them, back when they were not drone based but sub-based missile strikes, not when Bush did them, not when Obama does them, and not, if Romney gets the chance, even him.

And, again, since you are voting for Romney, my last line in my previous post stands as written:

Brick-House: I might add that information we gleaned from those water boarding sessions was key to finding Bin Laden.


I "might add" that for the info being "key", they sure waited a L-O-N-G time to use it...

Kinda funny how that works. Guess Bush decided that Bin Laden was still "irrelevant".

Mrtraveler01: One Big Ass Mistake America: Asa Phelps: So which foreign policy are they referring to?

Obama's policy of using drones to kill and maim children.

It's funny that conservatives started to care about killing and maiming children in foreign countries only after a Democrat became President isn't it?


Also, that self-described liberals/progressives stopped caring, revealing themselves to actually be mere partisans.

Let's see: Bush, a born-again Christian killed over 100,000 people for no apparent reason or gain then ran our economy off a cliff and conservatives considered him to be the second coming of Christ.

Obama, gets the job done with OBL and starts picking up the pieces of the rubble that Bush left behind while Republicans continually try to trip him and then scream hysterically that he isn't picking up their trash fast enough.

Oddly, Republicans, who claim that they are not a bunch of klansmen, have selected a cultist from a splinter religious group who claim that black people are Satan's agents and until recently would not allow black people to enter their cultist buildings.

Mitt Romney reminds me of that porker Smegma Whitman who claims to be a "job creator" and is currently off-shoring as many jobs at HP as she can. I'm sure their are a whole bunch of no-teeth trailer-trash republicans who would claim that Romney off-shoring jobs was just a way of creating more jobs here at home.

It's worse than that.

Obama is not everything we hoped that he would be. He's good but he compromises too easily He wastes too much time on the fallacy that he can find a middle ground with idiots. He supported DOMA and warrantless wire taps.

We're a bit bummed out.

But drone strikes still give us a better cost/benefit ratio.

God, you're right. There aren't any progressive groups or officials calling for the immediate cease of our involvement in killing poor brown people. I wish they'd start. It was terrible the way they all proclaimed it was fine a soon as the democrat was elected. That was a reprehensible thing to do.

You forgot to thank the theater that disarmed everyone at the door, making everyone in there a target for a nutcase.

yeah because what you want in a dark theater full of teargas and panicked people running around is untrained people shooting at muzzle flashes.

randomjsa: blastoh: So, you are.... 5? maybe 6? What is it with conservatives that everytime they are called out for doing something stupid, instead of trying to rationally explain their actions, they instead reply with "something something something liberals something?"

Do you just have no explaination for you actions or beleif systems? Is everything you do and beleive based off of liberals?
A clarification would be great here.

I observed how liberals behaved, the things they said, and the sort of images they liked to invoke while Bush was in office. I continue to watch how they behave even today. This is precisely the sort of thing liberals have engaged in since they lost in 2000 and it hasn't slowed down even slightly since then. As I said when Obama was inaugurated, I want every liberal to look back at how they've behaved over the last 8 years and think long and hard about it... Because that was the level we sunk to, and now you can expect no better from your opponents.

Of course, we've listened to the screeching about racism, or various other stupid things because admitting that Republicans dislike Obama for political reasons would mean having to admit that all that vitriol spewed by liberals while Bush was in office was also for political reasons. No more, no less. That's all it's ever been and ever will be about.

If this sort of thing bothers you, and it should, then liberals can start by cleaning themselves up because... You're the ones that brought us down here.

Weird that the right-wing has only recently decided the Afghan war is a terrible idea, especially now that troops are being withdrawn. For eight years it was about keeping America safe and hunting our enemies no matter WHERE they fled, but only in the last three years do I see demand to bring our boys home. Hm, something must've changed over the last three years.

What's your alternative? Vote Romney? Vote Green Party? Getting some, even a little of what you want out of a President is a pretty good thing. Romney isn't looking out for you. Green Party doesn't stand a chance (and never will).

I guess your choice right now is to vote for Obama and get some of what you want or vote for Romney and get nothing you want and a bunch you don't want. Seems a pretty easy choice to make to me.

Oh, the poor poor innocent precious pre-born fetuses!

Are those the "children" you really mean?


State Rep. Cynthia Davis (R-MO) on June 22, 2009, provided several "commentaries" to a press release from the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services on a summer food program.
The program provides "food during the summer for thousands of low-income Missouri children who rely on the school cafeteria for free or reduced-price meals during the regular school year."
Davis, who serves as the chairwoman of the Missouri House Special Standing Committee on Children and Families, questioned whether the program is "warranted," and inquired --

Who's buying dinner? Who is getting paid to serve the meal? Churches and other non-profits can do this at no cost to the taxpayer if it is warranted.... Anyone under 18 can be eligible? Can't they get a job during the summer by the time they are 16? Hunger can be a positive motivator.

Republicans Choose Weapons for Foreigners Over Feeding Hungry American Children
Posted on Wednesday, May 16, 2012 by Doug Marquardt

Sounds hyperbolic, but it's true. The Ryan budget that House Republicans passed last week cuts billions from vital social programs, including food aid for poor, American children. But the House panel that controls military spending recommended nearly $850 million additional dollars from American taxpayers to build a missile defense shield for Israel.



Your alleged "concern" for children is blatantly fake.

Now I avoid any political discussions with people here, you simply can't have them.

Both Fast and Furious and the Afghanistan War are legacies of that nightmare we call "George Bush" that Obama have to work on fixing up. I don't think you understand the situation well. It's as if Obama came into the movie theater and started shooting at James Holmes and managed to take him down (maybe not out), you'd be calling Obama some whack-a-doo for shooting around in a very public location.

Unfortunately, no. Ever played the game "Jenga"? It involves taking rods out of a stack until it falls, with the person having the most rods as the winner. Bush farked things up so badly in the middle east with regards to Afghanistan he's created a world-spanning game of Jenga. Removing our people from where they are now without any thought as to "what happens next" would be as short-sighted and stupid as removing all the rods from the bottom layer of the Jenga pile first and expecting it to continue to stand upright..

As much as I and most others would like to see all this end, the president cannot just "bring everyone home" without serious consequences. "What happens next" is a real thing.

there is no plausible reason for Obama, who has ordered, personally ordered by his own admission the deaths of Osama Bin Laden and several Somali pirates, there is not any reason for this killer to have won the Nobel Peace Prize.

Giving a killer and warmonger the nobel peace prize completely devalues the concept of having a peace prize.

Liberals are hypocrites.

Ishkur: "We're all outraged over that killing in Aurora, Colo., but we're not outraged over the boys killed in Afghanistan," Clements explained to the paper

So when Bush waged war, that was alright. But when Obama wages war (continuing the same policies started by Bush), that makes him comparable to a mass shooter.

Gotcha.


I don't know much about these people in Idaho, but TFA says they're libertarians. In which case they wouldn't have supported Bush or Obama's foreign policies. That's one of the problems with America, if someone criticizes a member of "your team," you tune them out because they must be from "the other team." That mentality creates groupthink and ruins political discourse.

I'm just saying that if you have $90,000 in cash in your fridge then maybe you shouldn't be bringing other congressman up on charges for borrowing a really nice armchair.

If your boyfriend is running a prostitution ring out of your residence then maybe you shouldn't point fingers.

thrgd456: If your boyfriend is running a prostitution ring out of your residence then maybe you shouldn't point fingers.


If you have some evidence that Frank knew about the prostitution I would suggest contacting a prosecutor because you would be the first. Since Frank kicked the guy out when he found out and requested an ethics investigation into himself I would suggest he was truthful.

Two words: Emmanuel Goldstein. George w. bush did not *want* to get Osama.

"I don't know where bin Laden is. I have no idea and really don't care. It's not that important. It's not our priority."
- G.W. Bush, 3/13/02

"I am truly not that concerned about him."
- G.W. Bush, repsonding to a question about bin Laden's whereabouts,
3/13/02 (The New American, 4/8/02)

Amazing how this douche got re-elected.

I guess he wasn't Kerry, right, apologists?


Actually, as much as I hate Bush, I have to point out that that first alleged quote cannot be verified. He doesn't appear to have actually said that. There is no transcript nor audio nor video of him saying those words.

The second one (that you cited from The New American) is legit. It's even on video (in context).

A: The Peace Prize has been symbolic at best for quite some time now.
B: Peace != strict pacifism. Eliminating al-Qaeda and helping with the Somali pirate problem will, in the long run, lead to a more peaceful world.

You're forgetting, around the time Bush's approval dropped below 30%, lots of people suddenly became "libertarians."
Sure, they voted for him twice and love everything he did, but they never really liked him anyway. For realsies. I'm super-serious.

Both sides are bad, so vote for the Republican who got trounced in the primary and then added himself to the Libertarian ticket. It's totally different.

The "libertarians" I have encountered never objected to anything Bush did, except in token ways like complaining that he didn't abolish social security outright. Right up until the 2008 election, "libertarian" = "so far up Dubya's butt they could see daylight".

No, this is the part where we mention that any criticism of the President is short of treason and a victory for the terrorists.

This is also the point where we state that you're either with us or you're with the terrorists.


Naaah. It's all hyperbole for the moment. You're against the war on Aurora now, but as soon s someone mention "Hey, how about we stick the di*kwad in guantanamo until we give him a lethal injection" you'll get all soft like a scared and quivering mass of protoplasm.

For eight years it was about keeping America safe and hunting our enemies no matter WHERE they fled, but only in the last three years do I see demand to bring our boys home.

Actually, even during the Bush(II) administration, there were conservatives who didn't want us wasting troops in Afghanistan when they could be sent to Iraq instead.
