See, that's why I stick around here: just to be close to the levers of power. Sweet, sweet power.

First you have to agree on the shape of the table, then you get down to the real issues. This is a chance to dance our way out of our constrictions.

My fellow Farkistanians,

We choose to post these ramblings, not because they are hard, but because they're easy. Ask yourself, are you better off today than you were those years ago before you established your Fark account? On some day in 1999, a date which should live in infamy, the Internet was maliciously and deliberatly attacked by blog and blather forces of the empire of Farkistan. The world wide web wants to know if we're crooks. Well, some of us are not crooks. We don't have [insert favorite alt here] to kick around any more. The flood protection stops here. We stand at the threshold of a new day, where a thousand pints of Lite glisten upon our keyboards. I feel your derp. But ask not what the modmins can do for you, ask what you can do to make Drew greenlight you. There you go again--I didn't know Drew Curtis. Drew Curtis is not a friend of mine, and you, sir, are no Drew Curtis.

I'm doyner and I approve this message

Hey, even if there was a single post for each Farker we still have fewer people in this thread than are in Congress now. We could slot everyone in and still have room for more. What district would you like to represent?

I am about convinced that we have fewer trolls and retards on fark than we do in government.

Fark Rye For Many Whores: I call bs, no differences are ever resolved in Fark threads. We either talk past each other or (heaven forbid) try to convince each other of things and eventually give up.

We shall go on to the end. We shall Fark in France, we shall Fark on the seas and oceans, we shall Fark with growing confidence and growing strength in the air, we shall defend our island, whatever the cost may be. We shall Fark on the beaches, we shall Fark on the landing grounds, we shall Fark in the fields and in the streets, we shall Fark in the hills; we shall never surrender!

You see, boys forget what their country means by just reading Fark in history books. Then they get to be men they forget even more. Total Fark's too precious a thing to be buried in books, Mr Curtis. Men should hold it up in front of them every single day of their lives and say: I'm free to think and to speak. My ancestors couldn't, I can, and my children will. Boys ought to grow up remembering that.

9/11. Facts about dead people. Facts about country coming together. Never forget. Lee Greenwood as Minstrel-in-Chief. Toby Keith as Secretary of War.

It would have been better if we were given the keys on 9/12.

It's getting to the point where we need to abolish local gov't just to get some repairs/upgrades to our infrastructure around here. When did things get so regressive around here?

On behalf of my constituents I hereby move that the official sport of Canada's Pants (new name) shall be pro-wrestling, and that it SHALL BE REFERRED TO AS A SPORT AS IT SHOULD BE.

Also, beer for everyone. And not that crap made by Budweiser.

I propose we implement a version of Prime Minister's Questions each week and call it "Moderator's Questions...." That way each side would have an opportunity to grill the mods over their obvious bias in the stories that get green lit during the week..

Uchiha_Cycliste: whidbey: StopLurkListen: Slowdog: While that would be worth $5/month, the Liters will scream "poll tax!".

TotalFARK would be renamed "The Senate" and the commoners have to stick around in Literland, aka "The House of Representatives".

And TFD would be the Secret Police.

what does that make Drew?
