Recidivism Repeat Offender!: Was not Obama's mother a US citizen at the time of his birth? This is makes him a US Citizen even if was born on the moon.

LasersHurt: Corvus: LasersHurt: Corvus: skullkrusher: oh, that was witty. Unfortunately, calling people "retard" and posting pics like you did speaks much more to your mental capacities than mine.

You excited about starting middle school next week?

A) I didn't call anyone a "retard"

B) If you keep insulting me I will inform the mods.

Oh don't be a whiny little tattle-tale.

I would rather not be. But I am not allowed to fight back so it's the only recourse I have.

You could drop it. That always works.


Drop what? He responded to a comment not even directed to him. What am I never to post on FARK because he could respond to me?

mocking the mentally disabled is truly honorable. BillCo is an idiot. So are people's who find images like the one you just posted appropriate or humorous.

No that was intended towards BillCo not you, sorry if their was some confusion.

yeah, I got that part

Actually you didn't.

oh, that was witty. Unfortunately, calling people "retard" and posting pics like you did speaks much more to your mental capacities than mine.

Are you trying to insult me?

People use the term "retard" on FARK all the time. In fact one headline got green lit for it today. Why are you just care about me? FARK is not a site to follow your PC rules. If it bothers you so much maybe you should go to another site.

Or as people like to say here:

I apologize for anyone who might be offended by me positing a pic of teenage girl crying. I have the utmost respect for teenage girls.

As someone who enjoys making and seeing teenage girls cry, I am offended by your apology.


I apologize to you then sir! I to those who I offended by this apology!

Interestingly Mitt's grandfather had three wives at the same time, so he's got that in common with the President


More interestingly, he was born in a dog.

skullkrusher: mrshowrules: skullkrusher: but spam is automated. While a number of our illustrious Fark colleagues SEEM to be bots, I don't think any actually are

The aspect of spam is high volume, limited targeting. What a person can lose in volume they can make up for in targeting. Fark as a subject based forum is ideal for this.

This has been outlined before as real job/service you can paid for. You might have a simple rule. If you see a subject/video/tweet/Fark Thread whatever regarding let's say Obamacare (pre-2010) post a comment regarding wait times in Canada with a link to a story. The link can be helpful to measure the effect also. You would get paid based on volume of hits generated. You would probably have dozens of topics you were working for the same marketing firm. You wouldn't be their main PR mechanism (far from it) but you would be their simplest/cheapest one.

of course it's possible. I just don't find it likely. No one is being swayed in a Fark thread


Turn it around. Forget how well it works. I'm a PR/marketing company. I tell you the client. That my company will work radio, print, TV, billboards internet. Heck, you pay me mad stacks, I got guy that will go on web-blogs, you tube and 2nd rate news websites and post comments saying your lead chips are actually good for you. Regardless of how well it works, people will pay for it and that's why it exists and that is why I bet at least one post in this thread was paid for. I don't claim to know which one and I can't prove it.

Somacandra: Richard Flaccid: Racist? I don't follow the birther movement because I think it is ridiculous. But now it's racist? I must have missed something.

[Birtherism] is intended to remind you that you're black and deserve to be checked - you're lesser or, at least, you're questionable. The resume check is when you buy a first class seat on a plane, sit down, and somehow only your ticket gets checked twice. Or when you drive a nice car and get stopped by the police more often than white people who drive the same car. Or a cop stopping and frisking someone with no real probable cause beside race. Or when you get questioned about how it is you got to be somewhere.

Yes, Birtherism is a form of Racism. Get over it.


I wouldn't say it is 100% racist. When it comes to conspiracy theories, there will always be people that believe them no matter how improbable or silly they are. It is a form of mental illness. And I would say that for a good 10-20% of the birthers this is why they believe this conspiracy theory and not because they are racist. And usually a conspiracy theory stops there and isn't picked up by sane people, unless they really want dislike somebody, and even in that case it doesn't go too far because most people don't want to be associated with nutcases.

However this birther stuff has gone from just a silly conspiracy theory to a mainstream belief within a major political party. So one has to ask themselves, how did this conspiracy theory become a mainstream belief among Republicans? Is it because they have a large number of mentally ill supporters? Or is it because they hate the fact that Obama is black so much that they would hang on to this ridiculous conspiracy theory to, in their minds, discredit him from being president. After all we all know that racism can make a person believe some ridiculous things.

Romney on businesses: "They know how to find ways to get through the tax code, save money by putting various things in the places where there are low tax havens around the world for their businesses."

[www.thepresidentialcandidates.us image 500x280]

It's SO cute how people throw together a chart that says nothing abut the poor job Obama has done on the economy and Federal spending. Oh wait, I see how this goes...

"So Barry, how about that birth certificate?"

"Here's a computer form I got from a friend."

"No Barry, your birth certificate."

"THE MORMON NEVER PAID TAXES I SWEAR!!! PIC OR IT DIDN'T HAPPEN!!!!"

/mind you, I think Barry was born in Hawaii as he claims, and he's just not worthy of re-election, but the distraction game is getting tiresome


"Distraction"? He's released TWO DIFFERENT FORMS of his birth certificate, both valid for anything requiring ID, you dumb fark.
 
2012-08-24 05:24:40 PM  

Mugato: Launch Code: obama wants you to know 1. Anybody that doesn't think he's the greatest is a racist. 2. All his failed stimulus ideas didn't work because of evil Republicans. 3. Raising taxes on people making over $250k will fix all of Americas money problems. 4. He supports the coal miners, (shhh, until after the election). He's not pandering when he did away with the work for welfare law. 5. He's really smart, just don't ask for his grades. 6. Everything he said he'd do in 2008 and didn't get done is because of evil Republicans. 7. Don't ask any serious questions about the last 3 years because Mitt is rich and um, evil. 8. Vote for him because this time he's going to do what he said he'd do last time. 9. It's still President Bush's fault. 10. He's perfect.

God, is this really what these conservatives actually think? It's...it would be worth it to shoot down all of these but everyone with an ounce of sense already know what everyone will say so fark it, believe whatever you want to believe. No amount of facts or intelligence or elitist intellectualism will convince you.

So go forth, vote against your own interests.


You could have saved yourself a lot of typing and just said "Well bless your heart". Matter of fact I suggest that be our standard reply to idiots.

NateGrey: Brilliant political move by Romney. Almost Palinesque. This could get all the people in media asking aloud what he was insinuating, and if he was being nativist, anti-Indonesian, etc. This ground has been trod on before, and it doesn't hurt Romney, and it doesn't help Obama. It DOES get Akin off of the front page.


Romney should take something stupid that someone tangentially related to his campaign said off of the front page, and put himself saying something more stupid on it instead. BRILLIANT!

Dr Jack Badofsky: mrshowrules: Dr Jack Badofsky: So, tax returns are required to be President, but Mitt's currently qualified to be Speaker of the House or Senate Majority leader?

All this biatching about tax returns. The guy paid more in taxes last year than you will over your entire life, even if he only paid 7%. But apparently, you're still going to PMS about it anyway. Try some Midol.

I thought the idea beyond Republicans wanting rich people to be be taxes less was that they they too would be rich some day. I guess your post puts an end to that idea.

Actually, anybody can become rich. It's called "work" and "work ethic". Try it someday, instead of sitting there biatching about why someone else makes or has more money than you. Nothing's stopping you except your negative attitude, and continuous rant about someone who happens to have a lot more money than you do. Start a business, invent something people will want, become an expert in a particular field and use it to your advantage. Become a doctor, lawyer, whatever. Instead, you're busy being bent that someone else took bigger risks, worked harder, and saw things through to acquire what he did. Even if some of what he has came from family before, if he was totally stupid, it'd be gone by now, but somehow, he's managed to increase his wealth. You can do it too, you know.


So in summation, you have no "work ethic", and are therefore, not rich?

Is the GOP trying to win this? Is this just some type of grand experiment to see how much of a clown you can be and still get votes? That is what it seems like to me. This whole election cycle has seemed like that in regards to the GOP. Every person that they considered a candidate has been a clown and did and said absolute ridiculous shiat. And now you have this guy that refuses to talk about any of the issues, cries that he his being attacked whenever Obama pushes him on an issue, and now goes birther. This has to be performance art. Hell if you made a documentary about this election cycle and aired it 20 years from now, people would write it off as a lame attempt at a political humor sitcom.

if you knew more about the world around you, you would ask to see every member of congress' tax returns, since their investment performance as a class is improbably amazing. But you are just playing with talking points, so never mind
