TheJoe03: Badafuco: Yep, So Cal is right wing, everyone is douchey, and it totally sucks. Do not come here, you will hate it.

I try to skip over LA right into SD. LA farkin sucks.



SD is military douchebag capital of the world

intelligent comment below: Another wrench in the "LA is a liberal haven!" is the fact that the city council just voted a ban on all medical marijuana dispensaries.


Medical mj is a farce, anyways, so they deserve to be.

Baloo Uriza: Sgt.Zim: Baloo Uriza: Sgt.Zim: "Moonbeam" Brown is conservative?

I can't recall the last time California elected anybody but conservatives.

8/10

Almost had me. A+. Would get trolled again.

I'm being serious, though. California's like Oregon: Votes for conservatives of the Democratic stripe instead of the Republican stripe, then pretends it's left of center when in reality, they're more conservative than much of the midwest.


You can't be serious.

Four words:
Dianne Feinstein
Barbara Boxer

A few more words:
Arnold Schwartzenegger. Nominally GOP, but "party of convenience" if I've ever seen one.

Why? because some people abuse it? People abuse prescription drugs too but you don't call that a farce.

No liberal city bans every clinic especially since it helps so many sick people.

intelligent comment below: BgJonson79: You said, "Are you seriously going to deny the influence of business and the wealthy on government at all levels?"

And I replied with a level of gov't not influenced by them.

Also, semantics is how the world works. There is a reason laws use the language they do: it needs to be precise. I'd also add a small minority has always had lots of control over everyone else. Everyone else (92% if you use two sigma) has average intelligence or lower.


So basically you admit you have no actual argument so you want to debate semantics instead.

Semantics isn't how the world works, I already explained my position, and instead of debating that, you ignored it ran right back to your original argument again.

If your goal here is to prove you misunderstood what I said and have no argument when the people IE the voters have no power anymore because corporations and lobbyists control government, then for that I applaud you.


No I just wanted to troll around for the afternoon. Thanks for playing :-D

I have no beef with people in the military plus SD is beautiful, less polluted, and the people are a lot better than LA douches.

All the LA douchebags are transplant assholes and stuck up silver spoons. The military douchebags start fights with anyone and everyone, cut in line, are loud and obnoxious, and think the world owes them something.

SD is almost as expensive as LA with no jobs except defense or the big colleges and SD has half the things to do plus the huge flow of illegals from a few miles south

So what? I don't live there, I go there to visit. I'm happy in the Bay, thank you very much.

noblewolf: So the pools will be open from 3pm to 7pm weekdays and 1pm to 5pm on weekends until labor day. I see that they are scheduling the pool hours around school. That is nice, but what about locals who don't go to school, or are they just not important.


It's that your typical lifeguard is a high school or college student and thus unavailable during the morning and early afternoon during the school year. Get off your cross.

FTFM

You're arguing with one right now.


I believe you're what's known as a "libertarian".

SnakeLee: They have huge budget cuts, won't increase taxes because SoCal is right wing, but want all the services that a tax paying society would provide


"The answer is more taxes! What was the question?"

Both substantially more conservative than Bernie Sanders (S, VT), the only well known moderate elected official in the US.
 
2012-08-09 08:33:04 PM

teeny: Don't public pools charge to get in? Why not just increase the cost a bit to cover the budget cuts?

Also, this:

durbnpoisn: In other news, isn't there like this great big ocean right there? Why can't people swim there?

If the beaches are littered with broken glass and needles, whose fault is that? Clean it up you lazy bastards, and stop whining that there's nowhere to swim.


Unless you're running a water park or a pool that is full to near capacity, that's almost impossible to do. People expect swimming to be a cheap form of recreation.

BgJonson79: Crotchrocket Slim: BgJonson79: intelligent comment below: BgJonson79: intelligent comment below: BgJonson79: The wealthy aren't people?

When 1% control all government, no

Care to cite your source, please? And if they're not people, what are they? Why demonize folks you disagree with?

Are you seriously going to deny the influence of business and the wealthy on government at all levels?

I never said they aren't people, I said they have stolen government from the rest to do their bidding

You said, "The problem with government is that the wealthy have taken back control from the people..."

So that means they're not part of the group "people" so they must not be people.

Protip: you aren't going to win any debates on Fark by posting like you're Sheldon farking Cooper. Take this sophistry elsewhere.

Debate isn't the verb I'd use to describe what I'm doing ;-)

+1 for use of the word sophistry :-D


D'oh, I appreciated your tools but missed your intent. Now I feel silly :P

FTFY. You should at least keep your argument consistent. The left wing is above such things, remember. You said it yourself:

intelligent comment below: The problem with government is that the wealthy have taken back control from the people, and you can't blame anyone but conservatives for that.


And with that, the rest of us can ignore you for the partisan douchebag that you are. You look just as stupid as some hick from Kentucky who blames all of his problems on the liberals. Do you want to know why money controls our politicians? Its because morons like you will keep voting for the same people because they are on your "team". You don't give a damn what they actually do in office as long as they are branded with the right letter. You are pathetic.

What kind of nonsense argument is this? You think it matters who people vote for, gee if only we voted more then money would magically not matter?

You're a complete and total moron, not only for your ridiculous argument but because you claim to know my voting record and my party affiliation. You're a waste of time. Goodbye

intelligent comment below: Also,

San Diego - heavy conservative military town

Bakersfield areas at the North edges of SoCal - heavy conservative also military town

Ventura - heavy conservative military town

Orange County - heavy conservative except for minority areas

City of LA - mixed but does lean Democrat because of minorities (who don't vote as much and don't hold most of the wealth)

Inland empire - mixed but leans conservative

Palm Springs - old conservatives

There's a reason the state is known to vote in Republican governors like Nixon and Reagan


I live and grew up in Ventura, we are not a military town by any stretch. What are you talking about?
 
2012-08-10 12:37:18 AM
Many many ex military and ex and current police officers live in Ventura County.

intelligent comment below: Many many ex military and ex and current police officers live in Ventura County.


I stand corrected. Many many ex military does make us a heavy military town. What was I thinking?
Police officers are not military.

I will say it again, Ventura is not a military town.

Shazam999: Yeah, but when people talk about LA, they think of all the 30 million+ people as being in Hollywood and driving around Ventura Blvd.


Driving in Hollywood is usually a pain because Hollywood and Sunset Boulevards are crowded with tourists day and night. Ventura Blvd. gets congested at times, but isn't too bad. Wilshire Blvd. in West L.A. and Beverly Hills truly sucks.

From what I understand: blame the traffic problems on Beverly Hills. Way back in the 60s, there were plans to create state route 2 through LA as the Santa Monica Freeway. The people of Beverly Hills didn't want a freeway dividing their city, and effectively killed the project. Route 2 became Santa Monica Blvd, and route 10 became the Santa Monica Freeway. This of course left no major throughfare between Hollywood and West LA, so to this day there's gridlock. Perhaps it'll help if they ever get that damn subway extension out to West LA, but Beverly Hills is all butthurt about those plans too.

spman: Has anyone ever seen the types of people that patronize municipal pools? Good god, the pool water is the closest thing most of those people have see to a bath in months. Wouldn't go near there if you paid me, yuck! Only thing worse than that is the Water Park at Six Flags where they have to load the water with so much bleach and chlorine that you come out looking like Michael Jackson.


Keep blowing that dog whistle and just maybe everyone will come to understand that POOR people are enjoying things, and we can't have that!
