Kibbler: I opened my front door the other day to get a package the big brown truck had left outside. A bunch of leaves or something fell on my head as I opened the screen door. Then I realized no, those are box elder bugs. We get them in the fall. But there were a lot of them. Wow. Really bad this fall.

So I got the vacuum cleaner and started vacuuming them up. Then I bumped the frame of the screen door. It's hard to describe, but the outer edge of it on the "closed" door (we have a double door) is hollow, it's a kind of a rectangular tube running the height of the door.

So I bumped it. And box elder bugs started spilling out. At least thirty or forty of them. I vacuumed them up. Then I gave a good bang on the door frame, and...ye gods...*hundreds* of them came tumbling out. They just kept tumbling out, more and more and more. That entire door frame must have been packed with them.

Hundreds and hundreds of creepy, swarming, pestilential insects. Tumbling out of their hiding place into the light, crawling and swarming. Flushed out of their hiding place into the open. A hideous, seething mass of insects.


Ensconced in your vacuum cleaner is a flimsy paper back filled with hundreds of angry box elder bugs...

This.

I know they were out there, but I never knew there were so many. The GOP is going to be associated with batshiat crazy for a long time, even after they dump the lunatic fringe.

Wow, doesn't The Daily Beast tend to sit a little on the Right(Obviously no Fox News or WND)? If they are bashing the video this hard, that's a good sign. As they say though, the damage is done, the video is out there, but at least they're calling it out for what it is.

Wait until after they lose this one. I wonder how many of them will go on shooting sprees?

I don't expect them to go on shooting sprees...but I do expect them to sit around and honestly not understand why they lost to Obama.


They won't get it..they'll think it's because Romney wasn't a "true Conservative" and that NEXT TIME, they'll run a true TRUE Conservative and all their dreams will come true.

Expolaris: FlashHarry: the modern republican party is so loathsome, so vile, so.... obscene, that i now believe that there is literally nothing they would not do to win an election.

The one description i read on Fark a while likened the current GOP as an old dog bitten by Tea Party Rabies. They are mad, foaming at the mouth while spouting as much hate, lies, and bigotry as they can to bring home the victory. They are old and have nothing left to lose, they will burn it all to the ground if that's what it takes.You are either going with them on their mission to "save America" from the evil FartBongo or you are everything that is killing America.

The sad part is they are getting so far gone that they can't differentiate between friends and foes anymore, the beast is beginning to turn on itself.


That attitude is why I am seriously thinking on welching on my promise to take the family to my mother and step-fathers for Christmas in Michigan. It's a long flight, and being stuck there for a week or two just seems like disaster waiting to happen.

She's already warned him once that if he ever gets out of line like he did two years ago she will leave him. He's been good, and actually stopped watching Fox News for a while, but with it being election season, I think he's started up again.

He's always going on about how we have to "Save America" and how much he hates Democrats and secularists (of which I am both, a Democrat and a secularist).

The fact that Obama hasn't sued the creators of the works mentioned in the aticle for libel and/or slander shows one of two things, either he has very thick skin (which goes against everything that I've heard), or that evertything that has been said is quantifyably true. The article mentions D'Souza as a respected conservative, so one must assume that he thoroughly researched all of this information before publication. I stand convinced that Obama is fearful of the truth that has been given to the American people in this late stage of the presidential race. It will be interesting to see what kind of campaign Obama will launch to discredit D'Souza.

Obviously nothing... The part that still amazes me is that websites like WND will roll out a new Birther theory one day and move right on to this Frank Marshall Davis shiat the next day, without missing a beat, although if this dude was Obama's father, it would invalidate their previous days' stories. I am more blown away by that feat of mental gymnastics than I am by the 'Obama's Mom was 'Easy' claim, that seem sane and rational in comparison.

I've prided myself on not being one of those liberals who gets irrationally angry at Obama for not subverting the Constitution and "laying the law down" on obstructionist Republicans. But if during the first...let's say six months of his second term he plans a Constitutionally-legal revenge romp on the GOP, I'll buy front-row tickets to see that.

I wonder how he can play around with federal funding to completely cut off red states. Maybe order the Congressional cafeteria to serve only beets and liver to Republican diners. And any blackmail material Rahm and his people gathered for him...let it all out on primetime during next summer's network TV "off-season"

On a more serious note, Ann Dunham was 18 when she gave birth to Barack Obama. I'm trying to work out some timeline where these photos were taken before she was visibly pregnant, but after she turned 18.

But do you know what? I despise the people distributing this film even more for leading me to think about something so vile.

Yo mama's like Miracle Whip, she spreads easy.

Yo mama's like a birthday cake, everybody gets a piece.

Yo mama's like a refrigerator, everyone puts their meat in her.

Yo mama's like a tricycle, she's easy to ride.

Yo mama's like a hardware store. 25 cents a screw.

Yo mama's got more chins than a San Francisco phone book.

Or there's the fact that a public official doesn't win slander/libel suits. Probably something to do with that "freedom of speech" thing you may have heard about.

And there's also the problem with slander/libel suits in general (as far as the US goes). You have to prove what they said isn't true. Good luck proving a negative in a court of law.

How do you prove your wife isn't cheating on you? Maybe you just haven't caught her yet.

The article mentions D'Souza as a respected conservative,

Uh...what article did you read?

"A writer once considered a legitimate conservative intellectual has been reduced to sputtering "yo mama" at our president."

so one must assume that he thoroughly researched all of this information before publication. I stand convinced that Obama is fearful of the truth that has been given to the American people in this late stage of the presidential race. It will be interesting to see what kind of campaign Obama will launch to discredit D'Souza.

The books have been out for how long now? And the movie was released when?

Obama needs to get cracking if he's going to discredit this guy. Of course, he could just understand that the average nose-breathing American will know a hatchet job when they see one. Or he's just not a petty douchebag like a few of his opponents are.

Yo mama's so poor and lazy, she will vote for the president no matter what. She is dependent upon government, and believes that she is a victim, she believes the government has a responsibility to care for her, she believes that she is entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you-name-it -- that that's an entitlement. And the government should give it to her. And she will vote for this president no matter what. ... She is a person who pays no income tax. I'll never convince her that she should take personal responsibility and care for her life.

skullkrusher: hmm... that sounds unlikely


Skullkrusher, please forgive me if I take a tone that assumes I know you. I don't. However, I lurk a lot. I read your posts and appreciate your honesty and humor, even if I don't like what you say.

Yet your political allies represent some of the most vile elements of democracy. I'm assuming you know that neither political party has a monopoly of correctness, as much as we'd all like to hope otherwise. Personally I find myself torn, but find social conservatism's emotional anger and outrage much worse than bleeding heart's emotional misguided compassion and impracticality. I can see how this is a difference of opinion though, and don't fault you and other rational conservatives for valuing your dollars more than your bodily freedom.

However how do you farkers just stand aside and mutter weak bullshiat like "that sounds unlikely" when some of the worst manifestations of human nature puke out horrible bullshiat day in and day out in the name of your party/ideology? When do you "good conservatives" fight back and make your stances stand on their own accord, and not pump out bullshiat lie after lie about the other side.

It makes me so angry... Sometimes I want some elements of the conservative cause to win, really! But I can't put my hat in with these stupid farks. I don't know how any rational person can.

The thing that you FAIL to farking realize is that Coulter, Malkin and Bachmann have inserted themselves into the dialogue to hawk their books, websites, columns, agendas, whatever. In a way, they are whoring themselves out to help push an agenda that fattens their bank accounts, gets their names in the news and draws attention to themselves.

Obama's mother is an innocent here. She died before he even started running. She never asked to be a part of this at all, unlike the other three you mentioned.

See the difference? I bet you don't, but I couldn't resist shooting down your false equivalency comparison simply because it was that farking stupid.

It's perfectly obvious.

Obama was born in Kenya to a pair of Americans who had no ties whatsoever to Kenya and named after a Kenyan who was a Marxist Muslim Atheist.

It's as simple as him being a Marxist Nazi and a Muslim with a racist Christian pastor and a maniacal dictator who is turning America Communist while also being completely incompetent and neglecting his job to constantly play golf.

dude, these people aren't my allies. I want Obama to win. I will not be voting for him but since I live in a solidly blue state I have no concerns about my vote helping Mittens win. I have no feeling of ill will towards BO whatsoever, I hope he succeeds, I hope his kids grow up happy and healthy, I hope Michelle enjoys her Weeners Lady life (hopefully beginning 4 years from now) to the fullest extent possible. BO's dad sounds like he was a dick but whatever, so is mine a lot of the time. I don't care if BO's mom was the dirtiest tramp ever to fark her way across America.

rthanu: I'm assuming you know that neither political party has a monopoly of correctness, as much as we'd all like to hope otherwise.


clearly not. However, the GOP's seemingly constant incorrectness has given many people the belief that pointing that out is a valid defense against Democratic missteps. Often, that's where my disagreement comes from. Both sides are bad, both sides are not even close to the same.

rthanu: Personally I find myself torn, but find social conservatism's emotional anger and outrage much worse than bleeding heart's emotional misguided compassion and impracticality. I can see how this is a difference of opinion though, and don't fault you and other rational conservatives for valuing your dollars more than your bodily freedom.


I am socially very liberal. I love me some gays, am pro-choice, support a safety net, I'm a pacifist, want to end the war on drugs, pretty much all of it. I also like my dollars too but given the choice between a slight bump in my taxes and letting my gay friends marry, I'll be happy to attend their legally recognized wedding but will stiff them on the gift cuz Obama took my munnay

rthanu: However how do you farkers just stand aside and mutter weak bullshiat like "that sounds unlikely" when some of the worst manifestations of human nature puke out horrible bullshiat day in and day out in the name of your party/ideology?

it's an intentional understatement. I figured most people find this sort of thing very low class and would understand the meaning behind the post. No, I am not outraged that some nobody I've never heard of is writing a book to smear the President but I certainly don't support such actions from a moral perspective.
