Mike_LowELL: irregularly-shaped screws and the sixth-leading manufacturer.


I see that Fark's liberal moderator hit squads are busy editing my posts, to make it appear as though I have made a complete collapse in my train of thought. The lengths the Democrat Party will go to discredit the opinion of moderates is disgusting.

crab66: The Obama administration's policies are bad.


Go on......


Obama's policies are bad. His policies are wrong. And bad. There should be a new, stronger word for Obama's policies. Like badwrong, or badong. Yes, Obama's policies are badong. From this moment, I will stand for the opposite of Obama's policies: gnodab.

Well that was just horribly written. Barely a cohesive message with no conclusion. "Obama is bad because corruption in Tunisia and Margaret Thatcher."

What the actual fark.

More_Like_A_Stain: theknuckler_33, please allow me to introduce you to Mike_LowELL. He is well known around here for his ability to turn absurdity into an art form. He has an uncanny talent for taking a ridiculous position, and then pushing it to points beyond human comprehension, while still making it sound eerily like something the stupidest person you know might actually say. He's not a troll. He's a performance artist. And a bit of a treasure.


Nonsen...

Mike_LowELL: And by using the remaining byproducts, we have become the number two manufacturer of those marshmallows that you find in cereal boxes. Under American regulations, we are not allowed to use this "harmful waste". Under Vietnamese regulations, I can have an average of two human corpses in every thousand pounds of marshmallow.


You could draw back your manufacturing to the United States if you marketed your product as cat food or fire retardant insulation to be used in the hulls of pleasure craft. You would realize considerable savings in transportation and food coloring costs as well as restore strategically important manufacturing to the USA. Currently companies, such as General Dynamics, have to rely on inferior quality Taiwanese irregular screws to assemble their products and there have been talks in congressional defense meetings about adopting regular screwing.

Fluorescent Testicle: Townhall: The top site for those who think that eating their own shiat is too intellectual and elitist.


So people who have reason not to eat their own shiat bother you?
If only there were something you could do to spite them. . .

I am the chosen son of Friedrich Nietzsche, Edgar J. Wittgenstein, and Joe McCarthy. Do not be alarmed if my opinions seem controversial. Conservatism is to question everything, regardless of evidence.

I am relieved to see that somebody on this web site has actual experience in business. Your input is welcomed. I will forward your suggestions to the board of directors, and I will mobilize the surgical strike team to make sure Taiwan Best Irregular Screw Company "gets the memo", if you know what I mean.

This is about President Invisible Obama, right?

Because I thought Townhall writers would think Capitalism was morally right.

Yeah. Cuz republicans are so moral.

Social Darwinism is the most moral system out there.

Corvus: So you know who would be "morally wrong" based on what this article says?

[newcreationperson.files.wordpress.com image 414x550]

Deut. 15:7. If there is a poor man among you, one of your brothers, in any of the towns of the land which the LORD your God is giving you, you shall not harden your heart, nor close your hand to your poor brother; but you shall freely open your hand to him, and generously lend him sufficient for his need in whatever he lacks.

Deut. 26:12. When you have finished paying the complete tithe of your increase in the third year, the year of tithing, then you shall give it to the Levite, to the stranger, to the orphan and the widow, that they may eat in your towns, and be satisfied.

Lev. 19:19ff. Now when you reap the harvest of your land, you shall not reap to the very corners of your field, neither shall you gather the gleanings of your harvest. Nor shall you glean your vineyard, nor shall you gather the fallen fruit of your vineyard; you shall leave them for the needy and for the stranger. I am the LORD your God.

Prov. 31:8ff. [Commandment to kings.] Open your mouth for the dumb, for the rights of all the unfortunate. Open your mouth, judge righteously, and defend the rights of the afflicted and needy.

Is. 58:66ff. Is this not the fast which I choose, to loosen the bonds of wickedness, to undo the bands of the yoke, and to let the oppressed go free, and break every yoke? Is it not to divide your bread with the hungry, and bring the homeless poor into the house; when you see the naked, to cover him, and not to hide yourself from your own flesh?

Jer. 22:3. Do justice and righteousness, and deliver the one who has been robbed from the power of his oppressor. Also do not mistreat or do violence to the stranger, the orphan, or the widow; and do not shed innocent blood in this place.

Luke 12:33. "Sell your possessions and give to charity; make yourselves purses which do not wear out, an unfailing treasure in heaven ...


Yeah, what does he know? Sounds like a pussy. Drill! Baby Drill! USA! USA!

indylaw: Not to mention it's just another tirade at an empty chair.

OBAMA, Y U NO WANT PEOPLE TO WORK?
Y U WANT EVRY1 ON WELFARE?

Yes, Obama wants everyone to sit at home and collect welfare checks.


Ties in nicely with Daddy Gingrich's sneer on Fox that Obama might need "more rest, maybe to play some basketball or watch ESPN" or something. (In his putrid rant claiming that Obama was not a "real" president, since "he doesn't do anything that real presidents do")

No, no racist dig whistles there.

What a piece of scum.

The headline says the system Obama is championing is wrong, but then the article talks about socialism.

Speaking only for myself, I can attest to the fact that I was regularly screwed by the military as far back as the 1980's.

Citrate1007: DarwiOdrade: HAMMERTOE: Corvus: People: Ok, can we pay for a jobs program to do that exactly?

How does a "jobs program" create jobs? Does it create wealthy people to hire others? Does it open businesses to hire people? Or does it just spend untold millions greasing its own wheels and generating fake publicity while accomplishing exactly nothing?

For example: The Works Progress Administration (renamed during 1939 as the Works Project Administration; WPA) was the largest and most ambitious New Deal agency, employing millions of unskilled workers to carry out public works projects, including the construction of public buildings and roads. It also employed artists, writers, actors and directors in large arts, drama, media, and literacy projects. Writers documented local and state histories, artists painted murals and other works for new federal post offices and other buildings.

That has since been replaced by the Workforce Investment Act which focuses on retraining dislocated workers, providing scholarships to low income individuals, providing wages for on-the-job training of at risk youth, and providing funding for Workforce Centers that offer job search assistance and resources to anyone (these are ran by each state and sometimes called by different names).


I realize that, but it's still a good example of the government creating jobs, no?

TOWNHALL -- a bastion of Republican Party nepotism. They have Rush Limbaugh's brother, Reagan's son, and Newt's daughter. Could any of these three actually get a job based upon merit? They love to trash the poor guy struggling to make ends meet while they merely trade upon their family ties to make a very good living.

Yes the New Deal created jobs and is a good example. In present day though it has shifted its focus on training the workforce not creating jobs....Instead the more conservative approach of tax incentives is meant to stimulate growth. The problem has been that these tax incentives rarely have a specific goal of new job creation. Instead the post-trickle-down way of thinking has been to give the job creators control of the money to do as they please which has lead to exponential growth of income and wealth for the job creators.
