Either way, I get paid by the Obama campaign to point out obvious frolls so that my fellow liberals don't get caught up in arguing with people who are only in it for the lulz.

HighOnCraic: BronyMedic: What in the unholy, everliving fark am I reading on the comments section of this page?

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.

propasaurus: JadedRaverLA: 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.

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.

Need Help Soonish: shastacola: 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."

What the unholy, everloving FARK!?!?!?!?!


I stopped reading after Valerie.

Our universe itself keeps on expanding and expanding,
In all of the directions it can whiz;
As fast as it can go, at the speed of light, you know,
Twelve million miles a minute and that's the fastest speed there is.
So remember, when you're feeling very small and insecure,
How amazingly unlikely is your birth;
And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere out in space,
'Cause there's bugger all down here on Earth!

A fake troll, or false troll.

Someone who posts an idiotic or inflammatory comment as a joke, not because they seriously believe what they are writing.

A prankster who assumes the online persona of a troll.

NOTE: It is important for the froll to be well known on the site in question, otherwise "the humorous impact is somewhat dissipated" when newbies think that the froll is a troll.

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.
