It's really not that far fetched, and I think he might be on to something.

If the federal government gives out student loans, some students might get an education. Those educated students might go on to invent time travel. It's a rather big machine, with a ramp leading down to it. Some spills some water on this ramp. The janitor slips and falls on the water, slides into the machine and is transported back Dacua, circa 1944.

EvilRacistNaziFascist: BronyMedic: America is the laughing stock of the world right now. I firmly believe this.

You're a grown adult who watches a kids' show about magic ponies. Who are you to complain about being a laughing stock?


Hell you're a defender of the modern day GOP platform. Where do you have the position to call anyone else a laughing stock?

MFAWG: dookdookdook: THIS is how you Godwin a debate without ending up sounding like a douchebag:

South Carolina Democratic Party Chairman Dick Harpootlian compared South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley (R) to Hitler's mistress on Wednesday, The State reports. "She was down in the bunker a la Eva Braun," Harpootlian said, according to The State.

In an interview with CNN on Wednesday evening, Harpootlian said he won't be apologizing for his comments.

"Hell no. What am I apologizing for?," he told CNN. "This is fake. Nikki Haley is feigning this. There is not a sincere bone in her body."

"I wasn't trying to insinuate that Nikki was a Nazi," Harpootlian continued. "I was saying that she was hanging out in an insular bunker in Charlotte when she won't give access to the press here in South Carolina ... So she has some hurt feelings? I didn't know she had feelings."

No, he sounds like a douchebag too. It's not that I disagree with the sentiment, but he could have made the point better.


I agree. But, Harpootlian isn't an "elected official." He represents the NC democrats, but not the general public. I expect Reince Priebus and the like to say partisan things. However, I expect our elected officials to not be nutjob crazy.

What concerns me is these here teenagers playing their "beat" music in the park and throwing their "frisbees" right where our nation's youth can see them. Now, grown-up lady parts might have the power to ward off rape babies, but a child's developing brain has no such defense against this menace. A child hears this here Dave Clark Five, and one generation later you've got yourself a Holocaust, which as I understand it, means tax rates above fifteen percent--I know, I know!--and redistribubating of the wealth and what-not.

FTFA: "There are more people in our, in America today of German Irish ancestry than any other ... The Holocaust potato famine that occurred in Germany Ireland - how in the heck could that happen? And when you start down the wrong road, it can be a very slippery slope." The congressman went on to label Irish-Americans as "a drunken scourge out to sabotage our nation's proud potato heritage."

BronyMedic: America is the laughing stock of the world right now. I firmly believe this.

We have a politician on the House Science Committee who believes that if someone is "legitimately raped" that the body somehow magically produces an as-yet-unnamed compound to "shut down" her reproductive system.

We have people on the House Science Committee who don't believe evolution is real. Who don't believe Climate change, regardless if they believe man causes it or not, is real. We have people on the Senate who believe homeopathy is legitimate.

We are raising our third generation of BET and MTV addicts, people who would rather watch such gems as Jersey Shore than focus on things like Math, Science, and History.

When we have people like this, the fact we have conspiracy theory douchebags who claim that we're one step away from setting up Concentration Camps really shouldn't be suprising.


Don't give up hope. Just hate everyone preemptively, works for me.

Chimperror2: MaudlinMutantMollusk: The real horror is that there are people more stupid than this knuckle-dragging mouth-breather


The Financial Aid office calls them "borrowers.".

"I don't often talk to people with BA's in History or English and a mound of debt. But when I do, I ask for large fries."


You sound fat.

I don't see anywhere in the constitution anything about federal highway spending. Where do I have to show my papers, and how long is this shower supposed to take? I have a busy day

shotglasss: Ah, more ultra liberal stuff from the muckraker.


"Ultra" makes everything more dangerous and makes me fear education more. It's like "militant," but sounds more sciency.

He seems to imply that Americans of German descent are a just one step away from becoming Nazis and all it takes to push us over the edge is federal student loans.

Oh...my...God...that would be the rep from my district. *hangs head in shame*

Roscoe has been an abject embarrassment for 8 years now. He snoozes through half the hearings, anyway.

His moonbat rants about peak oil are legendary. He just needs to retire. The local teahadists are already mounting a challenge, which will probably result in an even greater embarrassment.

You know what is also like the Holocaust? Doing taxes every year. Taxpayers are the jews in Obama's ovens. Or something like that. I'm not searching for that teaparty picture.
