Oh, I can tell this is going to be awesome from the title: Paul Ryan and the Triumph of Math.

Some golden nuggets from the comment section:

"I have seen Obama's "death stare" and it scared me. It reminded me of a picture of Stalin looking at his Red Army Officers and deciding who will be shot and who will be send to Siberian Gulags. Obama reptile stare is hungry, searching for a victim he can eat alive. The WON looks like a dangerous predator, a Columbiam drug enforcer, or Joe Stalin."

"Everyone should have known that electing a man who purportedly idolizes a drunken communist foreigner who abandoned his children that we were not going to get traditional American values.

Where are the "good" democrats who ought to be telling this psycho to get out of the White House?"

"It is clear that Romney, with his hundreds of millions (more than enough to go completely Galt and leave even with the government taking a sizable chunk of it as a fee for him emigrating) has to love America.

Otherwise, why would he still be here?

Why wouldn't he do the smart thing financially and go Galt, leaving us to suffer the consequences of having elected a Communist?"

"
This country is regressing under little Barry/Holder. Barry acts, thinks, and talks like an African king. What is the real level of little barry's IQ/intelligence? Very difficult to know since he got into all those elite schools and was president of Harvard Law Review due to being black/AA and nothing else. He runs everything/all decisions exclusively through Valarie Jarrett, another inexperienced know nothing = pure insanity. This country is being run by two black inexperienced know nothings, incredible! All black majority controlled nations, inner cities = chaos, corruption, high crime, living on handouts, a complete dismal mess. So the question is asked, how does this country benefit by putting blacks into position of power? Very dangerous delusional game this country is playing. This country can still save itself by electing R+R into office, deporting all illegals, mandatory birth control on Hispanics/blacks to bring back a 90% white majority."

OK, Paul Ryan is right, the budget needs serious changes or we are going to borrow ourselves into poverty. Things are going to need to be cut, both defense and entitlements. Taxes are going to need to be raised, including taxes on the middle class. Now, who do you trust more to make the hard choices?

I don't really trust either party, but I trust the democrats a lot more. Tax cuts for the wealthy hasn't worked and won't work in the future. NPR. planned parenthood and education are a trivially small portions of the budget. You have to look at things that people just don't want to look at.

The funny thing is that the Ryan plan is completely devoid of math. He cuts like 4 trillion worth of taxes but it'll be deficit neutral because he'll close loopholes. What loopholes you ask? Quit being partisan, at least he has a plan.

The whole 'numbers wizard' persona is a complete fabrication and they literally did not even try to hide or explain it. Just repeat it enough to drown out naysayers (like that neophyte Paul Krugman) and suddenly Ryan is a serious person with a very serious solution. Good thing Fox is an objective news source that won't just repeat GOP claims verbatim!

Because the Democrats were responsible for running up the debt, the Republicans were not only justified but right in screwing over the businesses when they came to collect? In the world I live in, you don't get to fail to pay a debt because your sister used your credit card. You pay up, and then sue HER for the money you're out. But you don't bankrupt the department store she used it at, merely because you're mad at her.

The facts are very, very clear. The United States is heading for a debt crisis. The only solutions will be truly painful for us all. That doesn't have to be our future. The way we respond to this challenge will ultimately define our generation. We can choose a path to prosperity..."

We're IN a debt crisis, you chowderheads, and the little power play your darling Speaker ran last year only made it ten times worse. Don't you DARE start pretending that if only Obama wasn't so stubborn things would be angel farts and pixie dust.

The person holding the credit card isn't necessarily the one who rang up the bills, Sparky.

/and in this case it isn't
//yes it's totally pelosi's fault. derpderpderp

Because the Democrats were responsible for running up the debt, the Republicans were not only justified but right in screwing over the businesses when they came to collect? In the world I live in, you don't get to fail to pay a debt because your sister used your credit card. You pay up, and then sue HER for the money you're out. But you don't bankrupt the department store she used it at, merely because you're mad at her.


At least warn us before you do that. Idea below:

Don't Troll Me Bro!: Actually, I do have one thing to say. FTA: "Paul Ryan represent[s] Obama's most horrifying nightmare: math."

I mentioned this yesterday, and I'll say it again. The original "budget" submitted by Ryan did not have any numbers.

A. "Budget." Without. Any. Numbers. On. It.


Another liberal lie exposed. Every single page of Ryan's budget has a number on it. They go in order and everything.

Paul Ryan quote:

"Should we now subscribe to an ideology where government creates rights, is solely responsible for delivering these artificial rights, and then systematically rations these rights?"


Paul Ryan action:

"Ryan also twice voted against ending "don't ask, don't tell" in 2010. In 2011, he supported a constitutional amendment in Wisconsin to ban marriage for gays and lesbians in the state's constitution.

Back in 1999, his first year in the House, Ryan voted to ban gays and lesbians in the District of Columbia from adopting children, and opposed establishing a domestic partnership registry in the District as well."


Clearly the answer to his question is "yes, yes we should".
 
2012-08-12 08:46:35 PM  

wrs1864: OK, Paul Ryan is right, the budget needs serious changes or we are going to borrow ourselves into poverty. Things are going to need to be cut, both defense and entitlements. Taxes are going to need to be raised, including taxes on the middle class. Now, who do you trust more to make the hard choices?


Great ideas, but take out the thing about cutting defense. We're going to spend more on defense. Take out the part about raising taxes on the rich, we're going to reduce their taxes even more. So cut entitlements that people paid into for decades and raise taxes on all but the ultra-compensated and we've got ourselves a plan!

Yep, by picking Ryan as his running mate Romney has made sure that everyone who was going to vote for him anyway is still going to vote for him. In order to win in November, he needs to reach out to the undecided independents who are not happy with Obama's performance but are not particularly susceptible to the dog whistle approach to American politics. They want substantive programs from their candidate, not vague promises. They want to know that they are not voting for a creature of the interests who tanked the economy and then walked away with tidy bonuses, and they want to be reassured that the new president is neither a heartless ideologue nor a clueless trust fund baby. Ryan does nothing to draw in those voters; quite the contrary. We'll see what happens in November--we'll see what relentless advertising funded by the bottomless pockets of plutocrats can do in the waning days of a campaign--but all things being equal, the Ryan pick is both one more example of Romney's tone deafness and a signal that the extremist wing of the repub Party is still suspicious of his ideological credentials.

Let me remind you how nightmarish Ryan is to Obama Romney. Here's a six-minute take down of Obamacare by Congressman Ryan.

I bet it doesn't include this:

"I'm not a fan of [Romney's health care reform] system," Ryan told C-SPAN in 2010. He argued that government is rationing care in the state and claimed that people are "seeing the system bursting by the seams, they're seeing premium increases, rationing and benefit cuts." He called the system "a fatal conceit" and "unsustainable."

Though Romney has gone to great lengths to distinguish his Massachusetts health care law from Obamacare, Ryan doesn't see the difference. "It's not that dissimilar to Obamacare, and you probably know I'm not a big fan of Obamacare," Ryan said at a breakfast meeting sponsored by the American Spectator in March of 2011.
 
2012-08-12 09:59:11 PM  
If I saw Ryan walking down the street I'd avoid him like the plague. He looks like an over-entitled ideological zealot douchebag who would tell me to fetch him some coffee stat becaues he has to be at the gym in 26 minutes and the church in 52 minutes.

If I saw Romney walking down the street I'd just avoid him to go around his security detail. His energy level must be lower since he's older and he just seems less dangerous. Not a true-believer of anything but his own awesomeness.

So racist Democrats in the South are "New Day Same Republican Dirty Tricks"?


A milestone for the party was September 16, 1964, when Senator Strom Thurmond announced to a statewide television audience that he had switched parties from the Democrats to the Republicans, saying the Democratic "party of our fathers is dead"[5] and had "forsaken the people to become the party of minority groups, power-hungry union leaders, political bosses, and businessmen looking for government contracts and favors".[6] This statement sparked a shift from the solidly Democratic southern United States towards an equally solid Republican party support base within the region.

What are you talking about? I'm sure the comments are filled with subtle, nuanced points about how to fix the econ--

"If Obama had stuck to Muslim financial principles, this country would be much better off. If he stuck to Muslim moral principles, he would not be pushing PP or the contraception mandate.

If Obama stuck to Muslim principles in his personal life, his wife would not be seen in a sleeveless shirt or dress, and he would not be eating things like Coney Island hot dogs or BBQ ribs. I don't have a problem with that, mind you.

Obama may have a fuzzy affection for Islam as many progressives do, but our choice here is between a Mormon paired with a Catholic and a pair of secular humanist liberals with a dash of Black 'Liberation' Theology thrown in."

I don't think he was lying, and if he was, he's even more stupid than originally believed.

I don't want to be a member of the human species anymore. If there is intelligent life out there, THIS is why they avoid us.

What are you talking about? I'm sure the comments are filled with subtle, nuanced points about how to fix the econ--

"If Obama had stuck to Muslim financial principles, this country would be much better off. If he stuck to Muslim moral principles, he would not be pushing PP or the contraception mandate.

If Obama stuck to Muslim principles in his personal life, his wife would not be seen in a sleeveless shirt or dress, and he would not be eating things like Coney Island hot dogs or BBQ ribs. I don't have a problem with that, mind you.

Obama may have a fuzzy affection for Islam as many progressives do, but our choice here is between a Mormon paired with a Catholic and a pair of secular humanist liberals with a dash of Black 'Liberation' Theology thrown in."

O my God!


You tricked me into reading the comments as well. Good thing I've got a couple in me. Now I can just giggle at them instead of having my eye twitch uncontrollably.

I mentioned this yesterday, and I'll say it again. The original "budget" submitted by Ryan did not have any numbers.

A. "Budget." Without. Any. Numbers. On. It.

Another liberal lie exposed. Every single page of Ryan's budget has a number on it. They go in order and everything.

OK, one 'funny' for the new guy.


I'll take it.

I've just learned the hard way that you have to be very specific with claims like that. Glen Beck and his ilk will absolutely go through the damn budget, count the page numbers, and then go on the air SCREAMING about how liberals have made this scandalous claim... when the Fox News 'fact checkers' (that must be the greatest job on earth) have counted LITERALLY hundreds of numbers in the budget.

Therefore all liberal claims are vicious lies. So, vote Republican.

Very difficult to know since he got into all those elite schools and was president of Harvard Law Review due to being black/AA and nothing else. He runs everything/all decisions exclusively through Valarie Jarrett, another inexperienced know nothing = pure insanity. This country is being run by two black inexperienced know nothings, incredible! All black majority controlled nations, inner cities = chaos, corruption, high crime, living on handouts, a complete dismal mess. So the question is asked, how does this country benefit by putting blacks into position of power? Very dangerous delusional game this country is playing. This country can still save itself by electing R+R into office, deporting all illegals, mandatory birth control on Hispanics/blacks to bring back a 90% white majority."

It is fairly amazing to me that you can go from 'one piece of evidence doesn't hold up' directly to 'this entire case is based on lies and is invalid' without even considering any of the remaining evidence. If I ever go to trial for something, I sincerely hope the jury is made up entirely of conservative 'true believers.'

As for 9/11, I understood the desire for solidarity and rallying around our leader at the time, but I will never understand how that translated into support for a war against Iraq, or any of Bush's other policies. Given the absolute vitriol the far right has toward Obama (and really, any Dem), I worry that if a similarly tragic event occurred today the result would be impeachment proceedings and a never-ending blame game, instead of any show of collective support and determination on our part.

What's really "funny" is that years later, after much examination and investigation, the document holds up, or at least cannot be deemed a forgery - there were thousands of IBM Selectrics throughout the US Govt that touted proportional spacing. The McDouchle dick from here in Atlanta, the one who threw it out on Freep to begin with, is well known in legal circles here as a liar, a thief and con-artist. Typical GOP play - depend on the speed of the news cycle to get you away from the scene of the crime.

It was allowed to. 9/11 shocked the consciousness of about 98% of all Americans (the rest of us were only surprised that it took as long as it did). The fear and horror engendered by the way we got hit on our own soil provoked a wave of nationalism, which the ultranationalists were only too glad to use and abuse to further their own ends. This was not helped by continual replays of the event for the next hundred or so days.

Nationalism and patriotism are not bad; but if there had been 24/7 500-channel news coverage of Pearl Harbor, America would be an armed fascist camp today. The huge wave of Americanism and patriotism after Pearl Harbor could as easily have become an ultranationlist flashpoint had things been only slightly different. As it was, we saw the internment of many citizens merely because they looked different and that was OK because the Japs. Had someone else been in charge (pretend Prescott Bush had become President instead of FDR) I suspect we would not have stopped with the Japanese, but gone on to their allies the Germans and Italians. (Or perhaps not, Prescott was an ardent admirer of Hitler)

So even today, a decade after the fact, ultranationalism has a death-grip on the country simply because it was allowed to establish one back in September 2001.

...but not *this specific* proportional font, or [citation needed] if you know something to the contrary.

That said, what really rankles is that the White House released george w. bush's military records, and right there in them (scroll to page 6) is the memo that says george w. bush was grounded:

In accordance with paragraph 2-29m, AFM 35-13, failure to accomplish annual medical examination, 1st Lt George W. Bush, [redacted], is suspended from flying status effective date 1 Aug 1972. Publish orders as directed in paragraph 2-28, AFM 35-13.

In black and white. From the White House itself. In a monospaced font.

But, as Mark Twain allegedly said, a lie can be halfway around the world before the truth has its boots on, and whoever did say this said so long before there was a Fox Izvestia. Anyone trying to point out the real evidence was drowned out in a cacophony of wingnuts shouting RATHERGATE HURR DURR BURR! And so Dan Rather handed the election to george w. bush on a silver platter.

Paul Baumer: Dwight_Yeast: The My Little Pony Killer: Isn't it a little early in the morning to freebase?

Better than the traditional Icelandic dish of rotting shark in lye, which smells so nasty you have to build a special house to eat it in.

Good lord that stuff is diabolical. I was working in R'vik one Christmas season and my hotel had that stuff on the buffet. Smelled like a mortuary during a July power failure. FFS, how do you even conceive of that without puking, let alone eat it?


My research (and when I say "research" I mean "crap I pulled out of my cloaca") revealed that Norse pirates used it as a "shibboleth" test. When someone tried to infiltrate a Norse gang, he was told he had to eat some surstromming. They abandoned this when many of the Norse pirates themselves admitted they found it abhorrent.

From wikipedia: A Japanese study has shown that the smell of a newly opened can of surströmming is the most putrid smell of food in the world, beating similar fermented fish dishes such as the Korean Hongeohoe or Japanese Kusaya.[1]

And if you've been in our company lunchroom after some of our Korean guys have lunch, you'd realize this is saying a lot.

Gyrfalcon: I did like this:

The facts are very, very clear. The United States is heading for a debt crisis. The only solutions will be truly painful for us all. That doesn't have to be our future. The way we respond to this challenge will ultimately define our generation. We can choose a path to prosperity..."

We're IN a debt crisis, you chowderheads, and the little power play your darling Speaker ran last year only made it ten times worse. Don't you DARE start pretending that if only Obama wasn't so stubborn things would be angel farts and pixie dust.


I'm not even going to bother watching the news on election day. I would almost lay money on this:

1. The electorate will roundly reject the Romnbot and his mini-me. They not only have no charisma but basically Romney has offered nothing but "Obama bad" without any alternative narrative.
2. The moderate electorate is disgusted with the GOP, but they don't want a single party in control of the main branches of government, so the GOP will retain a blocking majority in the House.
3. The Senate will be balanced on a knife edge like it is now.
4. The voters have no direct control of the SCOTUS. Having a Democrat in the White House at least gives the opportunity of appointing a less doctrinaire judge. But this doesn't seem likely to happen soon.

If the Obama-hating fringe is mobilized enough to actually get to the polls, it may be worse than this. The Tea Party doesn't seem to have the momentum it used to.

At least that's my prediction. I'll put this bright shiny silver dollar on it.
