Brother Head: MythDragon: So what's wrong with that? He didn't threaten the president. Maybe he just wanted to show Fartbongo his cool gun.

If NoBama came to visit me, I'd certianly show him my collection. I'm quite proud of it. Especially since I was able to aquire many of my pieces despite that B-Rock the Islamic Shock had farked the economy.

I thought the economy got farked during Jr.s turn in office??


Are you actualy injecting reason into my anti-liberal derp session? Either I am trolling, in which case it won't help, or I am obviously retarded, in which case it definately won't help.

/Still don't like Barry though.

Anybody who trusts anything Snopes says pegs the DERP meter to FULL ON. I posted about the 3.8% Obamacare tax on selling a home and it states in huge letters "FALSE" !!!! Then you read the answer and it says, oh, it only taxes the capital gain on the house at 3.8%.....oh.... OK, my bad. What a bunch of shiat.

Cybernetic: If I judge purely by the articles linked on Fark, I would have to say that the primary purpose of Facebook is to allow idiots to identify themselves as such to the general population.



Same goes for saggy pants. I loathe both saggy pants and Facebook, however I appreciate the fact that both serve to identify people I wish to avoid.

zenmonkeycat: It was a Colt 911.

A Colt 911.

COLT 911.

Better than a Glock 19mm revolver I suppose.

"Mark my word, if and when these preachers get control of the [Republican] party, and they're sure trying to do so, it's going to be a terrible damn problem. Frankly, these people frighten me. Politics and governing demand compromise. But these Christians believe they are acting in the name of God, so they can't and won't compromise. I know, I've tried to deal with them."
~Barry Goldwater

What a REAL Conservative would say.

The claims regarding the tax *were* false, at least in all of the Facebook posts and forwarded emails I saw. They were claiming that the *entire* selling price of the house was subject to the 3.8% tax (which they often rounded up to 4%). The posts/emails then helpfully provided example figures which were wrong as well.

But I guess they couldn't muster the same level of outrage if they had said up-front that the tax was only on the capital gain realized from selling the house, and only if your joint income is over $250k/yr. Oh, and the tax doesn't apply to the first $500,000 of the capital gain.

Also, Snopes didn't simply label it "False" - it's labeled as "Mixture of true and false information".

I stand corrected. All this time I've been saying how evil and stupid Facebook is......well Facebook didn't make people like this stupid, it merely gave them a forum in which to demonstrate to the masses how stoopid they are! Go you, Schmuckerburg, if you build it, they will come.....and they have, including the morans.

It's tards like this that caused me to switch my party affiliation from registered Republican to independent, and to cancel my membership in the NRA.

As things stand now, it sure looks like Romney is going to lose. When that happens the last few normal adults in the Republican Party will be forced out by the dumb-farks and nut-cases. From here on out, the Republican Party will be the party of extremists, racists, birthers, 9-11 truthers, seers of black helicopters, and the Christian Taliban. Well, there is a silver lining. When the rest of us decide to get off our asses and have a grown up society again, it will be easy to hunt down these people, and lock them in tard corals.

#1 - About that UN Small Arms Treaty. Failure to comprehend the way treaties and our own legislature works is an automatic disqualification for office.

#2 - Assuming his excuse is valid, which I do not believe, he should be disqualified for abysmal lack of judgement and good sense.

And that has nothing to do with his 2nd amendment right to compensate for a small penis.

I recall a guy getting a visit from the Secret Service for mentioning a "burning bush" before a visit from POTUS 43 to his city back in 2001. He told a bartender how if someone poured lighter fluid on Bush and lit him up, God would be speaking to the world through a burning bush.

They arrested the guy and he was sentenced to three years in prison.

The deliberate and flagrant spreading of misinformation and sheer paranoid lunacy.

Republican process:
1) Does it make sense? No.
2) Is it true? No.
3) Would it make Obama look bad? (if it was true in any way) Yes.
4) Run it.

Hard to get too many people upset about a tax that only kicks in at a house value that exceeds what most people's houses were worth BEFORE the bubble burst and they went underwater. The stupid, of course, will imagine having to surrender 4% of the value of their house, to be personally collected by EXTREMELY TALL BLACK PANTHER shock troops and spent on Moochelle's thrice-daily fried chicken dinners.

Yes, that's right. Thank God Obama isn't legally President!

Was that really wrong?

He was just exercising his political authority through the freedom of speech.

/Darn those activist social scientists.

Why do you think the Birther movement has such a following? It's the only way the jackboot-licking authoritarian followers can reconcile their belief that We Must Obey and Worship Our Leaders Without Question with the fact that the POTUS is a darkie.

If he's isn't really the President, they won't go to Hell for failing to fellatiate him.

schubie: I've tried to excise the word "retard" from my vocabulary but if FB has taught me anything, the only people willing to openly admit that they're still Republicans are functionally retarded and/or racist.

/also all of my exes are narcissists.


I wish we could stop calling assholes retards. Real life retards are generally children in adult bodies and not likely to be assholes.

Let's start calling these people what they really are: ignorant, bigoted assholes in the main with a minority of intelligent, manipulative psychopaths.

Danger Mouse: Cymbal: Danger Mouse: Except nothing happened. No one cares. He didn't get into trouble. He didn't do anything. But once again it's the libbys are getting all wet about a gun...or rather a picture of a gun. And the Farkers fall in line without even reading the article.

Just another day in Farkland.

It's not the picture of the gun alone. It's the gun, along with "Welome to Tennessee, Obama." If you can't see the violence/rabble rousing that is implied by doing that, than you are an imbecile, or just another troll who is really trying too hard.


You're half right. Once of us is imbecile.


Yes, indeed. I wonder which once of you is imbecile?

You don't generally welcome people to your home by brandishing a loaded weapon.

It's kind of a conflicted message...

... Unless you live in the White House. Even then, you have others brandish multiple assault weapons for you. Obviously, he was just trying to make the POTUS feel at home.
