dr_blasto: Hmm. Rep. King... sounds familiar.

Wait! Isn't he the supporter of terrorism? You know, the guy who actually held fundraisers for terrorists?


Whoa. Wrong republican. The other Rep. King (R) is the one who supports terrorists. This Rep. King (R) supports dogfighting. My bad. Hard to tell the shiatbags apart.

Gyrfalcon: Diarrhea Anne Frank: Gyrfalcon: Lorelle: Because dogs aren't humans.

Is that the answer to why we can or why we can't?

Blood sports just ruffle everyone's feathers around here.

I know, right? Not a self-proclaimed "alpha male" sexual Tyrannosaurus in sight. Just a bunch of limp-wristed left wingers in colorful t-shirts who think that inflicting needless pain is somehow "bad." That argument falls down on so many levels, but the most basic one, that they never have an answer for, is this: If I can't feel the pain, how is it possibly bad in any way? My pain, sure, I can relate to that, we should legislate against that. Other people and animals going through pain, though, why should I care about that? What're they gonna do for me? If they could pay us to stop torturing them, then sure, but I don't see no dog-money, sister. You know what dogs trade in? Butt sniffs. If I want my butt sniffed, I'll fling a nickel at my local gimp-for-hire, Limber Limbaugh.

What is this I don't even

Huggermugger: He's obviously got some sort of constituency he's doing this for.

The question is, who could they be, and how many of them could there possibly be? I mean, I can't imagine that there are a whole lot of soybean farmers who have that much blood lust.


You've obviously never tangled with the soybean, son. You get out there in those soybean fields, it's like I imagine 'Nam would've been if I hadn't avoided it. Anyway you check and see if them soybeans are ripe, you lean over a little bit... next thing you know, that soybean rolls over and it's black like the eye of a shark who's not really interested. You straighten up, and BAM! A gay just married you. He married you. You gotta take it out on something.

Dear Western Iowa,

WTF?
Seriously, WTF?


i wish I knew. no one seems willing to run against the peanut brain 'cause he's in tight with those weird dutch reformed rich farmers up the northwest and that's the land of god and guns

thankfully, due to redistricting, i will no longer have to cry every time he opens his mouth.

incidentally, he no longer responds to my emails critiquing his performance and giving common sense suggestions to quit looking like a sheepfarker.

LarryDan43: themindiswatching: MBK: I can destroy my property without breaking the law.

No. For example, you'll get arrested for arson if you burn your own house down, even if you don't have homeowner's insurance.

I see your problem. You're burning down the wrong possession. You need a business, like a restaurant and you burn that down when it stops making money.

Don't worry, ma'am. This privileged white male is here to do your thinkin' for you. I could only do your thinkin' harder if I was also a nutty relgionista, but unfortunately I declared myself a god sometime in the late 90s. Sure, it didn't take off, but that's what puts f*ckpipes like me ahead of the game. In any case, you just lay back and relax and do things with boobs, or whatever you ladies do all day. It's boob things, right? I'm pretty sure it's boob things. Hey - just had a flash, it was like Jesus bounced off my brain: let's market boobs! Has anybody else thought of this? Because I think it's a winner. Just boobs everywhere. This is why the guy with the curly moustache pays me the big bucks.

African-Americans? Yeah, we lost them to the southern strategy 40 years ago. It's ok. We can do without them.

Hispanics? They're conservative but our base hates them, calls them wetbacks and illegals. Whatever. We can do without them.

Jews, Muslims and other non-Christians? Small minority. Sure they vote in overwhelming numbers compared to the general population, but they don't have Jesus in their hearts so we can do without them.

Gays? Women? People who live in big cities? Sinners all of them. Their America isn't the nation we love. We can do without them.

Dog owners? Animal lovers? Probably all vegetarian liberal nuts already so there is no point in worrying about their votes. We can do fine without them.

Steve King has no business living in this country, much less representing its citizenry. This is the guy that spouted this garbage out of his fool mouth:

"I don't want to disparage anyone because of their race, their ethnicity, their name - whatever their religion their father might have been," I'll just say this: When you think about the optics of a Barack Obama potentially getting elected President of the United States -- I mean, what does this look like to the rest of the world? What does it look like to the world of Islam? I will tell you that, if he is elected president, then the radical Islamists, the al-Qaida, the radical Islamists and their supporters, will be dancing in the streets in greater numbers than they did on September 11 because they will declare victory in this War on Terror. Additionally, his middle name (Hussein) does matter. It matters because they read a meaning into that in the rest of the world...If he were strong on national defense and said 'I'm going to go over there and we're going to fight and we're going to win, we'll come home with a victory,' that's different. But that's not what he said. They will be dancing in the streets if he's elected president. That has a chilling aspect on how difficult it will be to ever win this Global War on Terror."

"Can I step in here? I gotta say, I'm dancing in the streets right now. And by 'streets', I mean 'ocean'. And by 'dancing', I mean 'rotting'."
