Mouldy Squid: TIKIMAN87: NateGrey: TIKIMAN87: MeinRS6: So vote Democrat.

I'm voting for the white guys.

You sound Republican.

I just like working for a living.

And yet, here you are on Fark during office hours.


Exactly. I love having an office job :D

Ahhh the A/C fels great! A bit cold actually... Crazy 1st world problems...

U MAD??

Mugato: dericwater: You think Bush was the sole decider to go into Iraq and Afghanistan? You think Bush was the who wanted to pull back when the US military had OBL cornered in Tora Bora? You think Bush encouraged or allowed the Enron fiasco, the Bear Stearns, the Lehman Brothers, the Countrywide, the creation of DHS, TSA, NDAA, PATRIOT ACT?

Probably not, it probably was all Cheney. But Bush rubber stamped it all and history will blame him for all of it, as it should be. I don't know enough about Ryan to know whether this would be a similar situation but Romney isn't exactly known for standing by his convictions. Or even having any convictions.


No, Ryan is nowhere near the same caliber as Cheney as being in control. In the Bush/Cheney case, Cheney was the puppet master and Bush was the puppet. In the Romney/Ryan case, we have two puppets. The problem in the R/R case is that we don't even know who is(are?) the puppet masters. Adelson? Kochs? Some rich folks in China? In Russia? We don't fully know.

Uhh pretty sure most of us are in a office with A/C that "fels" great.

Do you think all those libs are posting from the unemployment line?

I think I'm actually more upset that every other media organization didn't call Ryan on his outright lies than I am about him lying.

Well we all know that the media is unabashedly liberal so I'm sure they have some complex anti-RR gambit up their sleeve. They're just waiting for the right time to strike.

I don't think there is enough time in a 24 hour news cycle to call Republicans on all their lies. There are literally making the shiat up faster than it can be shot down.

johnnyrocket: Why is this election even close?


Because the MSM loses its power as kingmakers//kingbreakers and all of the attendant influence that buys if one party is completely destroyed and no longer a viable option to play off against the other. Also, owners of the MSM are not exactly pro-tax on rich people.

So there aren't tens of millions of Americans that disagree with Obama's policies and don't want him as president anymore? And the lib media is 100% in the tank for Obama in the first place. They may want people to watch commercials so they can keep their jobs, but they are behind Obama with everything they've got.

We're going to find out in Nov just how much love is left for Obama. It may be less than is commonly recognized on Fark.

LOL, where do you get these delusions about a "liberal media"? I thought that talking point died with McCain/Palin's candidacy. Yet people are still parroting it.

Fox News is the #1 news show and it makes Cold War era Pravda look fair and balanced. You know that.
 
2012-08-17 08:33:01 PM  

Carn: Maybe he should practice law as the POTUS instead of breaking it.

Guess he's doing alright then.

The Supreme Court on Thursday upheld President Obama's health care overhaul law, saying its requirement that most Americans obtain insurance or pay a penalty was authorized by Congress's power to levy taxes.


Not even relevant. Despite what the Derp Squad says, signing a law that's later struck down by the Supreme Court is not an illegal act.

Fox is #1 because it is getting ALL of the conservatives(and then some) and all of the other networks have to split just the libs. The networks have been exposed as libby liars over and over again. They can't control the dialogue like they used to. People are running away from the libby liars in droves and have been for years. But that doesn't mean that the libs on those networks have stopped being libs or stopped supporting Obama 100%.

Well facts do have a liberal bias I suppose. But unlike Fox News, all those libby networks don't editorialize at the news desk or flat out make shiat up.

You're right. I remember hearing McCain being interviewed in 2008 on NPR for his prez run. I was thinking, "WTF LSM. Don't you get the game?"

And, then there is Michael Steele constantly on MSNBC. Farking RINO. (Thank God we got rid of that affirmative action twat from the RNC).

And, let's not forget PBS' coddling of Mr. Rogers. Have we seen a creepier brain washing of our youth in living memory. Outside of Sesame Street, I mean?

How many other lies do you need to mention before we forget the topic of this thread - that Paul Ryan is a liar? Because I'm not close at all.
 
2012-08-17 10:59:47 PM  
I like the one about Obama's girlfriend in one of the great books supposedly about himself was an "aggregate" of several women. Hard to nail someone down on if they are telling the truth if their characters are aggregates.

As far as liberal media lies, there are so many. Perhaps we should narrow it down to a single topic to make it manageable.

He's a trivia question for you, that you may have some trouble with if you are all lib media all the time. When did Sarah Palin say, "I can see Russia from my house."
 
2012-08-17 11:00:35 PM  
Dammit - Here's

/not sure about these new buttons.
 
2012-08-17 11:12:17 PM  
You don't give any link love on that? Perhaps you should.

And I think Ryan is a typical congressman that tries to get money for his district. I think he could sign some request without knowing the exact source of the funds. That doesn't strike me as far-fetched at all. But even more importantly, this isn't a big story. It's just not. There's no traction. I'll be surprised if Biden even brings it up in their debate, but it won't make any difference even if he does.

MeinRS6: I think he could sign some request without knowing the exact source of the funds


Ummm...other than tax dollars, what source could there be?
 
2012-08-17 11:36:13 PM  

MeinRS6: When did Sarah Palin say, "I can see Russia from my house."


She didn't. What she actually said was worse. Tina Fey was doing her a favor.

So lying clearly bothers you when a Democrat does it. Why is it ok when Paul Ryan does it?
 
2012-08-17 11:43:39 PM  

MeinRS6: When did Sarah Palin say, "I can see Russia from my house."


That was Tina Fey in an SNL sketch, genius. People on the internet ran wit it because it sounded so close to something Palin would say.

djkutch: MeinRS6: I think he could sign some request without knowing the exact source of the funds

Well, there you go. So since all of the funds come from the same place, then what's the point in saying "Oh, those came from this pile. Ryan is a liar!"

It's pure politics, based on someone's ledger, but it's not a terrible play by the Dems. They might get a few days out of this.

Ryan replies he was misquoted, "I did not ask to not have stimulus funds."

Dr. Mojo PhD: Mugato: MeinRS6: When did Sarah Palin say, "I can see Russia from my house."

That was Tina Fey in an SNL sketch, genius. People on the internet ran wit it because it sounded so close to something Palin would say.

Here's how it works to deranged losers like MeinRS6:

Ryan lying is ok because Tina Fey "lied" (actually parodied) on SNL, so it's tit-for-tat.

Wait, what's that, the Republican Party actually outright lied in fabricating a quote from Al Gore about how he claimed to have "invented the internet" and then, instead of claiming it was parody (which it's not, they're a political party, not a satire show on NBC), doubled down and used their invented quote as proof of Gore's arrogance?

Oh, what's that, that means the "tit-for-tat" argument actually means truth and justice was made whole when liberals ran with the Palin/Russia quote, teaching conservatives a lesson for what they did to Gore, which means justice has been fulfilled and attempting to justify further lying based on that means you're just once again lying?

Yeah, that's about what they do. First they try to excuse it, then they snivel like little biatches that it's "fair", then you point out that no, they opened the door to what's fair, and then they just keep herpin' and derpin'.

It's honestly like having a guy punch you in the mouth, and then when you lay him out, he punches you again and tries to claim that his second punch was self-defence, instead of what it actually was -- him retaliating for you daring to reciprocate his garbage behaviour. MeinRS6: A testament to deranged conservative behaviour.


Jesus Christ. What are you rambling on about?

Are you drunk?
 
2012-08-18 12:25:21 AM  

Dr. Mojo PhD: I'm really drunk. Sorry I'm making such a ass out of myself. I'm a libtard. What can you expect?


Good point. Take a few aspirin and go to bed now.

Maybe you can read that post of yours tomorrow and explain what that worthless bullshiat means.
 
2012-08-18 12:55:09 AM  

MeinRS6: Good point. Take a few aspirin and go to bed now.


Tomorrow he'll be sober but you'll still be the guy defending a liar.
 
2012-08-18 12:57:17 AM  
It is NOT hypocrisy to be against the stimulus but given that it is reality to get some for your district. Indeed it would be stupid not to ask since it was going to be spent anyways so why not in the district of the people you represent.

But that being said, it is hypocrisy to do this while denying that you did.
 
2012-08-18 12:59:34 AM  
I don't feel any need to defend Ryan. He can do that on his own.

All you are picking up on is that I'm not 100% Fark approved libtarded. I already said what I thought about Ryan and these funds.

If it's a big deal to you, then you were already going to vote for Obama in the first place.

I want you to really know that I am both shocked and dismayed that you don't like Ryan.

No really - I'm blown away. I thought all liberals would love him. And moreover, I seriously give a fark.
 
2012-08-18 02:19:23 AM

I'm bored. I'm downloading music, watching North x Northwest, and shaking my head at people like you.

I'm ready for the election to be over already, except for all of the laughs that Farklibs will provide me between now and November.

Oh, yes. You caught me. I was counting on the 20th post converting your vote over to Romney, because I really give a fark.

I'll stop and focus on that now. The next post will be magical and will make you love Ryan more than you love poundin' the pope.

Paul Ryan was one of the founding members of REM and knew Micheal Stipe when he had both hair and a Southern accent - 80s music vid
 
2012-08-18 04:36:34 AM  

farkityfarker: All this and only 5 days in.

Those Republicans who are saying that Obama should replace Biden should probably be begging Romney to replace Ryan instead.


Except that what we learned from palin, is that the candidate will, never, ever replace his vp pick, no matter HOW retarded.
