I'm taking it one step further to say that I'm "biting the pillow" with my voting choice.

hillbillypharmacist: But very few people talk about whether God is worthy of worship (given He exists). And that's the more interesting question in my mind.


To paraphrase Somerset Maugham's Razor Edge, How can I call him a God, when he doesn't even meet the standard of a decent human being? What kind of a monster makes his children bow down and grovel and give thanks for food, when the fundamental duty of a father is to provide for his children?

The Republican God doesn't concern itself with such philosophical trivialities, it just expects your obedience.

If you want to know what Ronald Reagan was really like, watch The Last Mogul (it's about Lew Wasserman, the last Hollywood mogul).

Let's see.

Ronald Reagan sold Wasserman's company some land valued at $1 million for $5 million.

Aw, forget it. Watch the damn thing on Netflix.

BTW, long before there was the PATCO strike firings when Reagan took office as POTUS, during the Delano Grape strike, as governor of California, he was seen eating grapes. Nixon and Reagan both ate grapes on camera at their California campaign stops.

Reagan was a corrupt a-hole all his life. He got his, he made sure a few got theirs, and he made sure the rest got screwed.

Garet Garrett: And...now we know why the Gipper was called the Great Communicator, and Lena Dunham plays the self-absorbed lead on a cable comedy show watched by less than 1/3 of 1% of the American population. It's called innuendo, and when it's done right, it's genius. When it's not, it's juvenile and cringe-inducing.



Or, you know... the dependable bigots of the GOP are absolutely horrified by the display of a filthy mud shark engaging in sexual innuendo about a colored without even the decency to be hiding away in shame.

Precisely. We're dealing with an omnipotent, omniscient, omnibenevolent and profoundly insecure being.

GAT_00: Who the f*ck is Lena Dunham


Someone you (and I) never heard of before today and are unlikely to hear about ever again, but is apparently one of the Most Important People™ for a day or two.

So you show some respect, Mister!!

I feel bad. Everytime I see a dipshiat like BabyBreitbart John Nolte feign outrage about the newest liberal holocaust, I want to beat him with a baseball bat.
 
2012-10-26 04:43:20 PM  

kronicfeld: GAT_00: Who the f*ck is Lena Dunham and why am I supposed to be outraged or not outraged?

She is an actress, director and writer, whose most prominent success is HBO's "Girls." She is usually described as being part of the indie "mumblecore" subgenre. Very clever, intelligent people whose tastes do not happen align with her work like to quite sophisticatedly describe her as fat, ugly and/or porcine.


I don't watch the show and I'm not a fan of the ink, but she cleans up ok.

Is this the same Lena Dunham that made light of rape and murder on Twitter just last week?

trading arms for Iranian hostages, trading arms for Latin American cocaine or maybe refusing to fund research for or even acknowledging the AIDS epidemic.

FTF all the dead people Ronald Reagan had a hand in killing, whether they were disappeared Latin Americans, inner city youth caught up in the crack cocaine violence or AIDS patients who died because of federal inaction.

Seeing as how there is no real criticism of it to be had, and it certainly doesn't affect you that it's law, the only remaining options are in fact bigotry and racism.

But thanks for attempting to challenge my statement of fact regarding the morally bankrupt Republican Party ideology.

The actress in this Obama video, Lena Dunham, tweeted last week that her and her friends should go as Paul Bernardo and Karla Homolka for Halloween. Could you imagine if the outrage if it were the other way around?

24.media.tumblr.com


The "Ken and Barbie" murderers. While dating, Bernardo and Homolka drugged and raped 15 year old Tammy Holmoka, Karla's younger sister. The couple videotaped the night; Tammy choked to death on her own vomit. Their second victim was 14 year old Leslie Mahaffy, who they kidnapped while she was locked out of her home in June 1991. Mahaffy was raped and beaten for over 24 hours until Bernado strangled her with an electircal cord. They body was cut into pieces, encased in cement, and thrown into a lake. The cement quickly broke apart and the body was discovered. The same day that Mahaffy's body was discovered, Bernardo and Holmoka got married. The third victim was 15-year old Kristen French who, like Mahaffy, was raped, tortured, and strangled with the same electrical cord. French's body was left in an illegal garbage dump.

Bernardo and Holmoka were caught in late 1992. Bernardo, who is also believed to be the Scarborough Rapist as their DNA matched, was sentenced to life in the Kinston Penetentiary. Holmoka made a plea bargain, was convicted of manslaughter, and spent only twelve years in prison.

Who cares? It does affect minorities. And poor people. Overwhelmingly.

If you have no dog in the fight, kinda STFU about it. Or yeah, you're going to be lumped in with the sh*tstains.

Yeah. Half the country has the same kind of contempt for minorities and the struggling poor just the same as you do. it's actually part of the problem with this society.

Not sure why you feel the need to act surprised about it.

How do you figure Reagan was referring to sex beyond imagining that's what you thought he meant? I've had sex probably about the average number of times for a man my age and it has never hurt for a minute or any other amount of time. I suppose you could say the same about the Obama ad, except they admit that they're using a clever double entendre.
