I propose a Free Beer and Hookers Acts for all adults over 25 as part of stimulus. I need co-sponsor.
 
2012-09-11 03:44:56 PM  
Tackle our policy debates? In Fark? It's just a bunch of grabastic projection, ad hominem, memes, and snark. And it warms my soul.
 
2012-09-11 03:46:26 PM  
Well, it would save a lot of time. And money, since most of us aren't paid to be here. Not directly, anyway.

Most reviews of Big Apple Pizza are pretty positive. The cheese doesn't taste like socialism, explains a reviewer from San Diego...

That's funny shiat, right there...

Yes, but don't forget, Fark is essentially a 24/7 filibuster.

While that would be worth $5/month, the Liters will scream "poll tax!".

As opposed to Fox News or the Drudge Report?

I'm perfectly happy finding out my news here

eh, I think its pretty neat that a bunch of people that are nowhere near each other can get together (metaphorically), grab a beer (or at least wish they could) and shoot the shiat about whats happening in the world. I think that kind of dulls the sadness of that kinda like how the hilarity of the Daily Show makes you forget for a moment that the "Best f*cking News Team" actually IS the best f*cking news team

The filter would have to go [imokwiththis.jpg]
Boobies would likely have to go as well [ohellnaw.jpg]

This is my nomination for DO NOT WANT poster girl to be Sergeat-at-Arms'-Length.

I really doubt it. The entertainment factor would go up, though.

If Fark were in charge of America, it'd probably look like a Communist dystopia where private property is banned.

How true. And if you'd just elect me president, all our problems would be solved.

Artists Revolutionary Party Platform:

Politics:

1. The Union of English-Speaking Peoples. Propose Union with Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Singapore. Rescue the home country from the clutches of the filthy Europeans (cut loose Quebec and let them join the EU--I understand there are going to be some vacancies soon).
2. Simultaneously, make the US officially bilingual, print our money in English and Spanish, propose union with Mexico and cede them back Arizona and New Mexico as a gesture of good faith.
3. Union of English and Spanish-Speaking Peoples, a political and economic behemoth that will assure our ascendancy in the 22nd century.

Energy Policy:

We don't need new sources of energy. We need better methods of spreading around the energy we have. What this country needs is a room temperature superconductor. Then we could beam solar energy down from space to the Mojave Desert and power the entire country with it. Therefore, my administration will sponsor a $10 billion prize for the first feasible high temperature superconductor. After one year, the prize will be reduced to $9 billion, after two years $8 billion and so on until it becomes clear that it just isn't technically feasible. But you know what? I think we'll have it within three years.

The Budget and the Deficit:

We need an income-gathering device that appeals to the stupidity and greed of rich people the same way the Lottery appeals to poor people; thus, the Federal Tax Raffle. Tickets cost $10,000 each. Once a month there is a drawing and the lucky winner never has to pay Federal income taxes again. Twelve tax-free millionaires a year is a small price to pay for the untold wealth this would bring in to the Federal government. Combined with the John Ekizian Memorial Tax on Condiments (a one cent tax on those little packets of ketsup they give away with fast food), and the deficit will be gone in no time.

Science:

Screw Mars. We need a Moon colony, now. If elected, I promise to put a woman on the Moon within four years.

Social Policy:

Womb-to-tomb social welfare for anyone who wants it, young, old, male, female, able-bodied, disabled, on one condition: You have to go to school. Eight hours a day, five days a week, fifty weeks a year. Study whatever you want but you have to study something. I predict this will clear the welfare rolls, permanently, within five years. Accredited artists of course will receive the dole permanently with no need to attend school, unless they wish to.

"For every complex problem there is an answer that is clear, simple, and wrong."

-- H.L. Mencken

Oh, come on. That's like McCainDemocrat running "against" danlpoon.

Can't have the same guy on both sides simultaneously.

BTW, I hereby nominate FlyNavy as Secretary of the Navy, and TheConvincingSavant as Commandant of the Marine Core.
