machoprogrammer: sethen320: tuxq: This whole thread is farking priceless. It speaks volumes in its imagery. The liberals are willing to waste money on a stupid cause, while the conservatives are going "wtf?"

farking. Priceless.

Why do you assume everyone who is saying wtf is conservative? You do realize there are more than two teams, right?

This is Fark. Criticizing a Democrat or idea that benefits a Democrat automatically makes you a Republican and will elicit a "SO VOTE REPUBLICAN!" response. Apparently they cannot believe some people think for themselves, don't blindly vote for a party and do not think of politics as a sports team.


I just hate the republican/democrat war everyone insists on being a part of. Is independent thought really that complicatothers others?

Because absolutely nobody who isn't a Republican refers to any group of people as "libs," especially in a derogatory fashion.

Stop embarrassing yourself. Seriously.

I'm not embarrassed. Seriously.

On the contrary, I think whoever got the idea to take up a collection to buy Biden a Trans Am should be embarrassed. It takes all kinds, ya know.


I f*cking hate feeling awkward for people.

So stop. You're not doing me any good by that, nor a I respobsible for how you choose to feel.

As for this little campaign of mine, my request has been made and reinforced and I've noted that my email address, which is linked to my Paypal account (that I use to donate to charities online), is in my profile.

Now I'll go do other things. Bye!

I like to think of it as a republican/everyone else war... or...more succinctly, a fantasy/reality war. But that's a discussion for another thread. Because today... today is about getting Joe a biatchin' umm... Trans Am.

"libs" as an epithet is specific to only one group of people.

Ok. You got me there. I missed that.

But you have to admit that the whole conservative assumption usually happens way too often at the first sign of disagreement.

HOLY SHIATBALLS BATMAN! $$ went up over $200 in the time it took me to catch up on the 300+ posts since I left work. Damn, it's times like this I'm PROUD to be in all y'alls presence!

I chipped in another $5, cause hell, monday's payday.

If it's not too much trouble, could someone relink the audio? I can't remember who posted it, or I'd go look for it myself. But there's 1300+ plus posts... :(

And yes, the sweet sweet butthurt on the yahoo thread is awesome. I too tried to combat it, but then just gave up. There are BAZILLIONS of derpers, and only one of me. Let it roll.

You want a bunch of poor people to buy a millionaire a classic sport car?
What a dumbass idea.

No kidding.... we all pay them indirectly through taxes (of all kinds, income tax, state taxes, etc..) and you can't even get a tax break on the donation... this thread is retarded. Why not donate free TF memberships while were at it!

Nobody is buying you sh*t because nobody likes you.

People like Biden.

People like me too, people who know me.


Nah, I sincerely doubt that.

Got a followup email from Yahoo. Gave him some fark handles for those of us in the trenches of this, but gave props to EVERYONE in the thread for their ideas.

Also told him to re-check the text on the donation site since we un-typoed and clarified it a bunch.
