dookdookdook: LouDobbsAwaaaay: [i45.tinypic.com image 468x336]He was on welfare, and food stamps! And did anyone help him out? NO!Dammit, why did he have to turn out to be a RWNJ? I used to watch Coach all the time and I absolutely loved him on My Name Is Earl.My list of actors whose otherwise-awesome movies I can't bear to watch anymore due to them being total nutjobs is getting depressingly long.Travolta, Cruise, Eastwood, Victoria Jackson (I LOVED UHF AS A KID GODAMMIT)
elchip: I saw a survey a few weeks back showing that something along the lines of 95% of Americans would rather work than be on the dole. But I can't find it anywhere. Can anyone else?
InmanRoshi: FuturePastNow: That's a good description of every farmer in America.And defense contractor.
WhyteRaven74: ....I want to see what his reply is.
sweetmelissa31: 5% of Farkers are Social Darwinists.
improvius: I'm no fan of Romney, but those choppy edits smack of dishonesty and misrepresentation.

shower_in_my_socks: Romney's press conference:[imageshack.us image 640x360]
Grungehamster: I'm seeing more people stoked over Romney making the comments than I see people whose minds have been swayed by them.
Grungehamster: I can't believe there are people honestly calling this the thing that puts the nail in the coffin of the Romney campaign. Have these people paid any attention to the language that has been used for years? The fact is that the meme that someone would support a Democrat means they are on the dole and living off the welfare state, and that the fact that Democrats are competitive is a function of the "fact" that roughly half of the people in this country are mooching off of you and the rich, and they have to be forced out of dependency.I'm seeing more people stoked over Romney making the comments than I see people whose minds have been swayed by them.
serpent_sky: What damage did he just control by not disavowing any of it, and stammering his way through some transparent, bullshiat talking points? He said nothing. He didn't answer direct questions. And he looked absolutely panicked. Someone should have given him some Xanax before he went out there just now. And maybe a script that didn't essentially admit that he actually does hate half the country, at a bare minimum.
Aarontology: Yeah, those soldiers and veterans need to shut the f*ck up.
beakerxf: and when they provide too much for their citizens
themeaningoflifeisnot: Don't forget the kind nutjob, Mel Gibson.
meat0918: That focker is standing by his comments now.LinkI bet he goes back on them as soon as the new polling comes out showing him in a tailspin.
impaler: Grungehamster: I'm seeing more people stoked over Romney making the comments than I see people whose minds have been swayed by them.How stoked are they about his running away from them?

Farksteron: Off-topic post (please dont hurt me..)The top voting link right now ("What happens when a Freeper goes to court? He finds out his internet arguments don't work IRL") is totalfark and I cant post there. But:For those that want to see the whole video:Part 1Part 2Part 3Part 4Also, his mom is defending him here: Link'Tis absolutely hillarious.
propasaurus: but not Scientologist nut job Jason Lee.
Elandriel: Bloody William: Dancin_In_Anson: they are "dependent on government" and "believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing,"Is this an inaccurate statement?It assumes that those three things are readily available, with no chance of exception or failure, to anyone who wants it. There's a reason we have safety nets, and it's not just because it's the human, civilized thing to have.Further, he phrased it in such a way that he asserted people want the government to give them those things. I don't know very many people who want life handed to them, because it's bare-bones no-frills kind of life (comparitively speaking vs. other American families, before we get into a pissing contest about mud huts in Africa).I think those people are just glad knowing the government is available to help them get those things if all other avenues have failed. The alternative is a governing strategy and party that literally, and completely, ignores the plight of people who have fallen on hard times and actively ushers them along the path to ruin. The party that wants to get rid of welfare, of affordable health care, of women's rights to make decisions for their own bodies, of tax credits that benefit the poor, of progressive taxation, of food stamp eligibility, I mean the list just keeps on going.They are beyond "got mine, f**k you". They seem to believe that failure should just about be punished, and the dregs of society should be encouraged to die, quickly and quietly and without making all that fuss, so the well-to-do can continue their lives of blissful ignorance without having to cast eyes upon the filth.
o5iiawah: Aarontology: Yeah, those soldiers and veterans need to shut the f*ck up.Soldiers and veterans are entitled to healthcare, education and housing.The Constitution. Read it. You might sound like less of a dipshiat.beakerxf: and when they provide too much for their citizensFood, Education, healthcare and Housing are all free in Cuba. It is such a fantastic place that tens of thousands of people try to swim 80+ miles to get the fark away from it.Government cant "Give" food, healthcare, education or housing without taking the equivalent resources from someone else. When everyone is entitled to receive, nobody produces. When nobody produces, you get Cambodia, the USSR, etc...Amazing that after 150M dead in the 20th century we still have to debate this.
neenerist: Define what counts to him as a True American?

shower_in_my_socks: [dailydish.typepad.com image 525x387]News: Romney just insulted the entire GOP base. Fark: Most of them don't realize it.
skullkrusher: dumbobruni: skullkrusher: dumbobruni: every American with a mortgage gets subsidized by the federal government. and every American with a kid gets subsidized as well.first part true, second part falsewealthy families don't benefit from 529 savings plans or public schools?whoa. We went from "every American with a kid" to "every American with a kid in a 529 plan?" I would imagine many wealth people are net payers into the public schooling portion of the Federal budget so to say they get a subsidy there doesn't make much sense.

vegasj: ferretman: And whose fault is that? It's Congresses and the Presidents. President Obama has not even mentioned these multi-million/billion corporations. Just wants to raise taxes on those making $150,000.00+ (combined). Real small businesses that do not pay minimum wage but actual salaries will be effected. A company needs to make ~$100K per employee that makes ~$50K + benefits. Increasing their taxes do not allow these small business grow.Dude, shhhhh... don't hit Obama-lovers with facts, facts scare them into name calling and stuff.
Mrtraveler01: o5iiawah: Government cant "Give" food, healthcare, education or housing without taking the equivalent resources from someone else.What equivalent resources is government taking in terms of education?
themeaningoflifeisnot: The best thing Romney could do for his party right now is schedule foreign trips for the next 6 weeks.
