Crapinoleum: andhravodu: PC LOAD LETTER: andhravodu: Lost Thought 00: It's not wasteful spending if it benefits Republicans.

Please don't be obtuse. The dude is asking for help to the state he governs. It's an entire state with people who have experienced tragedy not too far out. This isn't a my party vs. other party moment

Give me a fracking break. He rejected the expansion of Medicaid, which also helps people in the state he governs. Not affording medical care is pretty damn tragic. Just not at "dramatic" as a Hurricane. It really doesn't matter if you are miserable because you lost your house or because you can't afford medical care you need. Sometimes the two are related, as well.

Sure he has his problems. But in case of an impending storm which needs immediate attention, are you looking to make this our guy vs. their guy?

No, we're just pointing out his hypocrisy. Believe it or not, a Fark discussion is not going to determine whether he gets his money. And neither is your white-knighting him.


This one takes the cake. Me white-knighting Jindal. ha haaa haaa. What's next, Jindal's gonna sleep with me?

MaliFinn: wjmorris3: cabbyman: Why doesn't Obama just send in the army to make sure we don't have another bad thing happen?

Because if Jindal had any guts, he'd mobilize the state police to prevent that.

HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA

Oh, shiat, thank you. I needed a laugh like that today.


That wasn't meant to be funny. Jindal and the rest of Louisiana should secede.

Louisiana is turning into a disaster dependent welfare state. Well, OK, it was already a welfare state, but now most of their construction industry depends on getting hit with these periodic disasters and then getting those sweet sweet taxpayer Obama dollars to fix it until the next time. 1.1 billion in taxpayer money just to build a wall around NOLA that will fail in the next cat 4 or 5, for example. I'll bet that being a disaster victim is now one of their main industries.

Boobie Jipall is a douche. He's LOVIN this hurricane, it givse him lots of media facetime, he can look like a hero. Standing up to Obama is heroic in La so he wins on that regardless...hypocrisy doesn't exist. Bite the hand that feeds you much?
 
2012-08-28 02:10:04 PM  
You forget.

GOP "says" they don't want any more spending.
in actuality,
GOP "does" spend tons.

We don't want the Fed involved,
until we want the Fed involved.

Geez...sounds like a bratty teen talking about their parents.
 
2012-08-28 02:14:25 PM  
What's Obama doing here? Getting all his teams prepared, because they can't know where it will strike, but they have an idea, but whatever the case they will try to be ready.

What's Jindal doing? Grandstanding. Do you really think it is appropriate for this behavior with a hurricane bearing down on the Gulf Coast. He should worry about his people and the pennies later.

No offense, dude. I just don't accept the "If you did one thing wrong, it makes every nasty thing I ever did OK" argument.

As TFA states, Louisiana's already been declared a disaster area. Feds can now offer direct assistance "to save lives, protect public health and safety and preserve property in coastal areas".

Jindal is asking for money - reimbursement for preventative measures taken by the state. Why don't we see what he spent it on before deciding on any reimbursement? I'd rather not pay for any more sand berms.

I love this one, "Does it physically hurt to be so profoundly stupid?" followed by "No offense, dude."

Anyway, I also do not accept the "If you did one thing wrong, it makes every nasty thing I ever did OK" argument. This is also not anywhere close to what I said. Next time read someone's entire post before reducing it to the part you took issue with. Remember, reading comprehension saves lives.

Another Republican leader of an ignorant backwater with his hand out.

Sounds like he'd do a heckuva job for Romney in case Rafalca gets a cabinet level position.

stoli n coke: Still not as bad as Perry grandstanding about secession, and then putting a hand out when Texas had all those wildfires last year.

A lot of these Republican governors remind me of spoiled teenagers. You know the kind. The ones who tell their parents to go fark themselves, then ask for their allowance an hour later.


No. No, I don't know the kind. Kids get ass whippings where I'm from.

Shouldn't there be a law that, if you are a federally negative funded state (i.e. you take more than you give), then you are not allowed to carry on and on about how evil socialism is???

Because, it seems to me, that the federal government would be very happy to grant you your greatest wish of reducing your federal taxes to zero as long as they are able to reduce the money they give you back to zero as well.

It is win-win. The state stops being hypocrites and the feds save money!!

Graffito: I thought everyone in NOLA was a welfare queen who just wanted big daddy government to take care of them, but now they are hard-working tax-paying citizens?

Which is it Thunderpipes?



To be fair, NOLA either drowned or out-sourced most of the worst of their riff-raff.

The Muthaship: theorellior: gomundo: @MikeMc those figures have been debunked many times over. Anyway come November you lose!

Three statisticals..

1. 30% of Johnson supporters for Romney

I think the proper term is "Log Cabin Republicans".

So basically, Jindal wants the money to go to Acadian Ambulance not AMR.

RussianPooper: What's strangest about it is that the expression, "hoist yourself by your own bootstraps", is meant to be absurd in the first place, and they have co-opted it as an example of their self-reliance.


Maybe you are thinking of Captain Jean Luc Petard

It never is when it's something you want for yourself. When it's to help someone else the words "fark them" can't leave republican lips fast enough. Like those heifers at the convention a few threads up... somehow they deserve government assistance in raising their kids (food stamps, welfare, govt backed student loans and grants for college etc) but no one else does, especially if they vote democrat or are non-white.
There's no denying that there are people in Louisiana that will need the help... but I wish there were a way to separate them from the troglodytes who think that government, especially the federal government, is whatever evil bastard antichrist FoxNews tells them it is. I have no issue helping them, but the assholes who b*tch and moan about the government all the time shouldn't get one goddamn dime.

steamingpile:

Building up a business is something they have nothing to do with and is the result of sweat and hard work.


And roads, and bridges, and public schools, and teachers, and courts of law, with judges and DAs to handle cases of contract law, and firemen and policemen, and streetlights, and road repair crews, and sewer lines, and an electric grid... etc.

Yeah, government has absolutely nothing to do with business. Nosiree.

Except provide a nice stable framework where you can start one and keep it going. 

/government is to rebar as business is to concrete

Mrbogey:
That's kinda the best example of how this disease works. Everything that someone criticizes Obama about isn't doing it for the obvious reason. It's because he's a Democrat... and he's black.

They have anti-psychotics that are quite effective, you know.


I'll pick up the tab for your first month's script, mmmkay.
 
2012-08-29 04:14:07 AM  

Mrbogey: RyogaM: What? I claimed others said it was not political? Where?

Now you're just purposefully being obtuse and trying to divert the issue.

Your claim is that Jindal is making this a political issue even though he didn't. That the posters here making it political aren't the ones starting it.

Because Republicans make you do things.


You make me *facepalm* with every one of your asinine posts. So. There's that.

MikeMc: BeesNuts: No. Help your constituency, even if it makes you a contemptible hypocrite.

Better a hypocrite than a murderer.

He's asking for federal money to reimburse the state for any money it spends. That's not the same thing as "OMGWTFBBQ people are dying we need help!!!!111!"


Flip it over to what he'd have to do to not be a hypocrite.

Obama offers funds. Jindal says, no thanks we got this. And 15 thousand people drown or some shiat.

The Point is very farking simple people:
The way he is asking is clearly political. This makes Bobby Jindal an asshat. That he is asking despite having previously been an asshat is not what makes him an asshat.

If I ran around screaming I hate gay people, and then donated heavily to GLAAD and really enjoyed myself at a dance party or two, I'd be a hypocrite (OMG!).

Which of the two contradictory positions that I'm holding are you gonna hate on me for? Donating to GLAAD, or hating gay people?

I'll hate on Jindal for his political grandstanding, using a natural disaster as an excuse to campaign, farking up damn near everything he chooses to manage himself, and generally being a shiatheel about things. I'll hate on him specifically for asking for a blank check, I guess, if that makes people feel better, but I think I covered that by saying he's obviously being a farkwad about this for partisan reasons.

But I won't hate on him for pushing for disaster relief funds when a hurricane's bearing down on his city. Which happens to be below sea level. Why? First of all, because I think that's the wrong thing to focus on, and secondly because that's what he's counting on and I don't like playing into people's games. I can hear that fart now in his post-Isaac PC talking about how he succeeded in keeping his constituency safe or whatever. Then I can hear Hannity yacking about all the democrats who wanted Obama to deny him funds because of his politics and ideology.

Don't play their game. It sucks.

But that's not what's happening at all. Obama offered manpower and supplies. Jindal says, "No thanks, we got this... but you better pay us back every penny we spend, or else we'll hit the press and cry about how you're politicizing this."
