Someone missed all the debt racked up in eight solid years of Bush.

"I'm ready for a change," she said. "I want to see the economy go in a different direction." Ginny Lewis, a Democrat and 72-year-old retired district attorney from Princeton, Ky, says she'll vote for Romney because "I'm tired of the Republicans blaming all the debt on Democrats, so let them take over and see what they do."

Not that she's optimistic about how that will turn out, though. "I think things will get worse before they get better,"


Nothing like a self fulfilling prophecy.

See: Reagan. Bush I. Bush II.

Hell, even Nixon cratered the economy, by taking us off the gold standard. I'll never forget the cartoon of Richard floating out to sea on a dollar bill.

The last Republican president to not crater the economy was Ike, and he'd already devastated large swaths of the planet, thereby getting it out of his system.

The thought crossed my mind briefly, but it didn't take long to realize that it was a stupid idea.

Democrats didn't balk at those republican votes in 08 with the same agenda (let the other side win to show their incompetence), and republicans will take them this time around. But somewhere along the line, shouldn't we elect people who we don't expect to fark up?

I don't know how many times me, some other Farker, and about 400 other Farkers, economists, and statesman can say it:

Trickle down does not work. Deficit-hawk Republicans have, in modern history, done more to inflate it than the socialist pinko f*gs you demonize. Small government doesn't count when it comes to the federal military, your bedroom, or when you suddenly awake and realize it's lodged in your vagina.

So get the fark out of my way and keep offering your weaksauce wedge-issue goatsucking if it means you can glean a vote from "undecided" this late in the game.

One thing that I do notice about foreign media (I listen to BBC news and several podcasts) They are incredibly lazy. They will just look at our MSM and then parrot the report.

While there is a possibility that Mitt could win, according to the numbers, I don't think it's that close.

Best analogy and summary of this political race came from a Farker.

If politics were academics, Barack Obama has written a C- term paper; The Republicans have turned in a coloring book smeared with feces.

So vote for Mitt Romney - the sticker page in the feces-covered coloring book.
 
2012-10-25 11:38:37 PM
You know, I have no idea how to say this without sounding incredibly demeaning and supercilious, but ladies, if you're voting Republican this year, you might want to consider cutting yourself as an alternative. It'll serve your needs for self-harm while not farking the rest of us up quite as much.

Seriously -- Fifty Shades is a goddamn work of fiction, not a how-to guide on debasing yourself for men.

Read this sentence out loud: THE GOP'S OFFICIAL POSITION IS THAT A WOMAN SHOULD BE FORCED TO DIE RATHER THAN HAVE A FERTILIZED EGG ALLOWED TO BE REMOVED FROM HER.

That's not only a true statement, it's not even arguable --it's in their motherfarking party platform.
The GOP is officially against equal pay laws.
The GOP wants your employer to be able to deny you ANY insurance coverage that THEY don't like, for ANY reason.
Their economic platform, at the very least, is just as silly as the Democrats, and somewhat more likely to do harm to the vast majority of women who are not in the top 1%.

Voting Republican is not in women's best interests. Now again, I fully admit that some of you may consider that unacceptable coming from a dude. How the fark can I know what's in your best interests? Well, I happen to have a mom, a wife, and a daughter, and I've done more than my share of research looking at what each side is bringing to the table. I do, in fact, have a vested interest in keeping women safe, healthy, un-raped, un-molested by intrusive health laws, and able to obtain the healthcare of their choice. I want my wife protected by equal pay laws, and her insurance required to pay for contraception, just as it pays for other things for other people. Most of all, I want the women in my life to be respected by our laws as equally worthy of attention and resources, not dictated to or slut-shamed by old white Christian fundamentalist men and the women in thrall to them.

And you know what? I don't have to. I'm white, middle-class, married, straight, employed, and with a roof over my head. I'm a walking Republican billboard. Looking at it purely from a grotesque Randian utilitarian perspective, it's probably in my best interests to vote Romney. But I know it's in the best interests of people I love, and ESPECIALLY the women I love, to vote not just for Obama, but for every Democrat I can this election. And until the Republicans stop their campaign against women, against reproductive rights, against science, against evidence, against gays, and against everyone but those who bow to their particular flavor of God, I will not be voting Republican under any circumstances.

And frankly, this whole thing pretty much pisses me off.

Weird election/grandma story -

My Grandma cannot vote because she is not a US citizen, but she is certainly interested in who I am voting for and demands clarification at every turn. So when she asked me (again - she forgets things) what we're voting for, how we vote here, who are those guys on the TV right now and which dude was which, I told her the black dude was our president and wanted to stay president and the white dude was a governor who wanted black dude's job as president. Then she wanted to know which one was the Christian (she thinks most American Christians actually follow the teachings of Christ - she's so cute!) because she knows a lot of Americans are (allegedly) big on Christianity. I tell her "both of them say they are, they're just different kinds of Christians". Then she wants to know pretty much everything and anything - as if she's going to vote - to the point I'm surprised she's not asking me something like "boxers or briefs". After a while I get tired of playing 200 questions with her and just break it down this way. "Grandma, President black dude would do very well in Norway while Governor white dude who wants to be president would most likely prefer Greece". So she yells at me - loud yells, not agitated old lady raised voice yells - "You vote for that black man!!!"

I'll be so glad when November 7th rolls around. Then I'll just have to keep reminding her who won for a few months. After a while she'll forget she ever even cared.

/I love my Grandma!

Debt is a bad thing. I think we shouldn't have debt. I am glad the Republicans voted to end the debt last year and we should have more president like that.
 
2012-10-26 12:03:23 AM
I'm consistently impressed with how people were able to not only forget about when they voted for Bush...but also forget about the entire presidency all together.

From what I can tell, Clinton was a decent president that caused the dot com bubble....at some point in late 2000 a massive catastrophe happened causing some sort of weird time warp wormhole type explosion.

The explosion caused the deaths of 3000 Americans and sent the earth spinning rapidly on its axis.

By the time the earth stopped the crazy spin in late 2008, 5000 more Americans were dead in Iraq, Afghanistan had been bombed to hell and back, the national debt had doubled, and the economy still sucked from the dot com bust which in turn caused a mortgage crisis.

A democratic president was about to be sworn in. Given the fact that everyone only remembers the two democratic presidents, it is reasonable to assume that Clinton or Obama had started the Iraqi war, destroyed the american economy twice, killed nearly 10000 Americans, and shot a lawyer while hunting.

It's the only possible explanation.
 
2012-10-26 12:03:37 AM
This is only a bare step above the republican talking point about how the wars and taxes were ok because the democrats controlled congress and did nothing to stop Bush, and by the way, Obma has been president for four years and hasn't fixed it yet.....

which basically boils down to:

You can't trust the democrats to keep us in check and clean up our mess, so vote republican.

Well, he's an ex free-base addict, and he's trying to turn around, and he needs a place to stay for a couple of months.

Hey, we've got our apartment. We ripped up the floors, pipes, wiring, and having everything completely redone.

You could try and explain to them that the most powerful, advanced, wealthiest, and best armed country in the world--the worlds only true super power--is completely overrun by idiots who consider bigotry to be traditional family values, who consider military force the best solution to international relations, who eagerly accept bold-faced lies rather than come to grips with the fact that they might have taken the wrong side of an issue, who lower their own standard of living so that their wealthy overlords can have even more wealth and power, in the hopes that they will one day be part of the upper class that for now spits on them.

You can tell them that the country with a military that can probably defeat any 3 other countries at the same time (at least!) and has enough nuclear weapons to wipe all life off the face of the planet is a coin flip away from putting into power a party that wants to embark on a 21st century version of the crusades.

You can tell them that that the country whose currency the entire world is run on and which is so rich that should anything happen to our economy the entire world will crash into a disastrous economic depression is a coin flip away from electing into power a party who will gladly send our economy into the toilet to give themselves and their friends more money.

Or you can just tell them not to worry about it, The Democrats will win by a breathtakingly small margin and disaster will be averted for another few years, until the next time our country is poised to jump feet first into a new Dark Age.

It's up to you, really, but honestly...explaining the reality is just depressing and will probably leave them as confused as they started.
