Genevieve Marie:

DERP derp derp.

/Sorry, couldn't help myself.


That's why I like you.

If I had more  time, I'd come up with a fun parody of the World According to Garp.

/She named her son "Derp", after his father.

Vindibudd: joonyer: Vindibudd: joonyer: Just a side note here: You get called a troll because your "points" are usually pointless and you're obviously just trying to piss people off. You rarely say anything of substance. Kind of like that awful comic. Hope you didn't quit your day job for that. Wow.

My points are generally in response to an opinion made by the typical FarkProg® (Fark Progressive). They are generally responded to with 1. BUSH EVIL 2. TROLL 3. OMG YOUR COMICS ARE AWFUL.

AGAIN, this is because your "points" are not points at all. Even in the face of derp, you need to present something logical, something factual or at least debatable. What you do is spit vitriol, and then you run away. But by all means, keep blaming those darn FarkProgs, they're the real problem, right?

Usage of the term "derp" is not instructive to advancing an argument. Rather than continually relying on Farker shorthand as a perceived stepping stone to intellectual superiority from with which to rain down your breathtakingly empty rhetoric, in future attempts to launch coherent salvos of well-reasoned expostulation, attempt to utilize actual English.

Also, feel free to define vitriol with pertinent excerpts. And I will not apologize for leaving Fark threads to participate in various activities of actual living. After all, it's generally myself engaging 30 of you. I'd be on here 24/7 if I were to respond to everyone who is desperate to hurl such awe-inspiring, debate winning, vocabulary defining, all-star terms like "derp."


I'd be glad to have a rational debate, just bring your rationality next time, kiddo.

LOL, good effort trying to take the high road, but condescension is your MO. That's a big reason why you get met with hostility. The other reason is that your arguments generally get blown out of the water.

If you feel oppressed, it must be my fault. Not yours.

Heard this on the radio. Way to keep your priorities straight, man. When prodded about elections and presidential candidates (specifically, if he thinks Romney will tour impacted areas) he sounded agitated and gave a genuine response that he didn't give a fark and needed to focus on the destruction in the state. Way to go, dude.

I am not a person for Cristie... but a tip o' the hat for giving "it's due" where it belongs.

Christie impressed the hell out of me today with his focus on what is important: the people he was elected to serve. This is the kind of republican and politician I was raised to expect - and makes me hope the party could someday get its act together.

In the meantime, we're donating to the Red Cross and seeing what else we can do through our church's outreach efforts. Both groups have organizations in place.

And please, please donate money not items like clothing or food .These organizations have buying programs in place so their dollars go farther and they buy exactly what they need and arrange to get it exactly where it needs to go. Item donations pull volunteers away from clean up efforts and survivor support to sort and figure out what to do with stuff.

Did he say BACON!?

Elandriel: Genevieve Marie: That's odd behavior for someone who ostensibly supports MItt Romney.

He's thinking about his own upcoming re-election, I'd guess. NJ is still pretty blue, even with CC in charge, and he needs to lay groundwork to proclaim himself totes reasonable.

Or, maybe he's actually being a governor of a state instead of just a partisan Republican.


I think he just calls it like he sees it. He gave Obama praise because Obama has been there for his state. He also ripped apart the mayor of Atlantic City for talking some of his residents into staying in the city instead of obeying the evacuation order.

I'm an independent but I definitely think we need more politicians like Christie no matter what party they belong to.

I don't have any money, but I have stuff. Guess I can't give anything.

I'm a little cynical, but I've seen Christie's remarks, and a few of his interviews.
I'd like to think I can be a pretty good judge of character, and his attitude, body language, tone of voice....all of that showed me someone who was being sincere and seriously didn't give a goddamn about politics. What I heard was strength and authority and a serious tone that said "Yea, I know---but i don't care right now."

That's the type of person I want as a leader.
 
2012-10-30 10:42:39 PM

spelletrader: Say what you want about Christie, but he's always been pretty damn straight forward, if not downright blunt. It's obvious that he cares more about the people in his state than he does about any political bullshiat going on and will not politicize this tragedy for anyone.

Does he look like the mayor from "Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs"? Yes, yes he does.


He straight up lied on the questionnaire that led a non profit I worked w to endorse him before. Still, I'll give him props for this. They're sure as hell not gonna endorse him next time though.

Genevieve Marie: Elandriel: Or, maybe he's actually being a governor of a state instead of just a partisan Republican.

You know, I'd chalk it up to that too if the praise wasn't so effusive. He very easily could have said something more along the lines of "President Obama and Fema have been very helpful and we appreciate their efforts" and that would still have been the right thing to do.
 
But I mean... he gave all kinds of detail on how the President went above and beyond, mentioning late night calls so the President could personally help expedite the disaster area declaration and also talking about how the President made sure he had a personal number to reach him in case he has any other needs.

That's... above and beyond normal praise. Nice to hear, for sure. But I still wonder if maybe there's something else going on there. Maybe Romney irked him this week, or maybe like you said, he's looking out for his own reelection prospects. Or who knows, maybe he's just being a decent guy and telling the truth?

Whole thing is weird though and I'm not quite sure what to make of it.


It's all scripted. It's a work based on Mayor Ray Nagin's rant post-Katrina about FEMA. He's using the whole "I'm a tough guy hero leader captain because I said the right thing at the right moment and everyone thought it was genuine but I knew full well that I would be approached about photo ops so I had calculated it to look organic" trick.

I think he was honest though. It's not that weird because he has been awake for probably a couple days and he's dealing with a huge amount of stress, so he simply didn't want to deal with any bullshiat. His tolerance for bullshiat is at an all time low, hence the soundbite. There's this weird rush coming off of a hurricane, I can't describe it. You're still kind of dealing with what happened. He seems like the real deal.

Honestly though I don't think he was honest. I think he lied. It's political posturing by NOT resorting to political posturing. Soundbites like this are most delicious to him. So I think this is all fake.

This is a good story Chris Christie is a good man and truthful and full of honors. This is a good story to come out of the hurricane.

Chris Christie said he didn't want to do the photo opportunity because he shoveled 1438 ho hos down his gullet and they had to de-fart him with the Oompa Loompas like what happened to Violet because he was a bad boy for trying to sell his everlasting gobstopper aka soul to Slugworth, aka Mitt Romney.

Chris Christie could have just eaten the hurricane. This is all his fault. Chris Christie doesn't care about eating non-palatable hurricanes.

Christie doesn't respond well to hack reporters trying to bait an answer out of him, so instead of being tricked into partisanship, he recognized the usual bullshiat from the media and gave and over the top explanation contrary to what the hack media was expecting. Pretty simple.

This. It was less olive branch and less 2016 strategy and more "screw off, a-holes, I've got my own problems right now".

Meh, who cares? CC is an asshole, but that's forgivable and assholishness aside he knows how to be at least remotely non-ghoulish (which is sad that that is A Thing) and what should matter will be his policies.

And they'll suck, but that's a "then" problem.

Now wait a minute sir, I am a 65 year old life long New Jersey resident. But,when you bring BACON into the equation,that changes things.
