physt: MindStalker: whidbey: Fox News something something derp

I can tell you didn't read the article. Surprisingly fox news didn't put a negative spin on this. They just reported the fact that DOD was going to help out in the New Jersey election. Subby put spin into his headline.

It's not uncommon for FOX to put an incendiary headline on a facts only type of article.


"New Jersey to deploy military trucks to serve as polling places". Fiery.

It was one Black Panther with a billy club (the other was a certified poll watcher), and the NBPP suspended the Philadelphia chapter because of his actions.

But keep farking that chicken.
 
2012-11-02 11:49:10 AM
Is there any way we can sneak into wherever these trucks are parked and stencil "UN" onto the sides for extra hilarity? Or is that considered cruelty to conspiracy nuts?

Carth: Wtf is up with the poll? almost 60% are saying the federal response to Sandy wasn't adequate? When Christie thinks Obama is doing a decent job you know he couldn't have farked it up too bad.


There are poor snowflakes on my Facebook page complaining because their power was out for 8 hours. So, there you go. One of them is a trust fund baby and lives in suburbia, these are the types of people complaining the loudest. NPR had an interesting bit on this with input from linemen, and the stories of urban yuppies flipping out are just pathetic.

It's a Fox News online poll, what the hell do you think is up?

Fartbongo could have taken his bongos to the Jersey shore and personally farted the hurricane back out to sea never to again put so much as one raindrop on US soil, and he'd still be criticized for big government socialist takeover of hurricane prevention and pandering to "urban" people who can't ride out a tiny little "ain't a real hurricane nohow" with nothing but their bootstraps, a roll of duct tape, and a Gadsden flag.

can we just stop this? That sort of shiat is unacceptable regardless of who does it where. It's over. It is not defensible but it is no longer a story. Can we at least say that people in the uniforms of a hate group should not be outside of polling places regardless of the demographics of the neighborhood? Is that too much to ask without caveats of whether someone reported being intimidated?

FFS people - the jackholes who still bring this shiat up are jackholes because it was a relatively minor story that happened years ago. Tell them that. Don't farking defend the indefensible though
 
2012-11-02 12:04:17 PM
Subby is forgetting, however: nobody who watches Fox knews actually knows about Chris Christie and Obama. Fox news desperately covered Benghazi rumors during the whole time their hero turned traitor; as far as the viewers know, Christie is still their conservative idol.

That also answers:

Carth: Wtf is up with the poll? almost 60% are saying the federal response to Sandy wasn't adequate?


Given the lack of coverage, I'm surprised a lot of Fox viewers even know there was a hurricane. This article, complete with photo, is a stunning admission that something happened earlier this week.

Not entirely... national guard forces can be federalized without authorization of a state's governor under the Warner Act, but that's a whole different set or orders/bureaucratic nightmares. When un-federalized, the state's governor is still Commander in Chief of the guard.

Take it easy. There's a difference between defending the NBPP being there vs. pointing out that it is not the smoking gun of dirty liberal election tactics some conservatrolls make it out to be. I was doing the latter.

I did like that comment from the lineman: Country folk are used to losing power, so they're nice when they see us come out to fix it, and offer us coffee made on their wood stove. City folk aren't used to not having power, so they're frustrated and scared and can take it out on us.

The next day there was a piece where a reporter went to check on a friend's aunt who'd lost phone and power. She was on the eighth floor, and the reporter ran into people going down the stairs in the pitch dark because they didn't own a single flashlight. I couldn't believe there are adults in this world who don't own at least one dinky flashlight, but I acknowledge that if I was one of those people, losing power would be significantly scarier.

\Of course, I also couldn't believe there are people who don't at least have two days worth of food at home.

I have a very "green"-type friend in Cleveland who rhapsodizes endlessly about "going off the grid" with sustainable this and carbon-footprint that. She's now been without power since Sandy's winds rolled through, and now all she does is biatch constantly about how not having electricity sucks, and how farking cold it is in her very old and drafty Victorian house in a shiatty neighborhood where her neighbors don't even knock on her door unless they're checking to make sure she's not home when they come in to steal stuff.

I think subby was joking. If I've learned anything from Fark, it's that we're all supposed to figure out sarcasm on our own. It's never the poster's fault for not having the skills to write sarcastic statements while still leaving a clue that they ARE sarcasm, it's our faults for not automatically 'getting' the joke.

OTOH, how long until some place like Brietbart really does turn this into a massive conspiracy on the part of the Obama administration?

You should remind her that reducing energy consumption through insulation and sealing is by far the most cost effective way to reduce your carbon footprint. But it doesn't give you the smug factor of buying wind credits or installing solar.

\We had solar at our last house, but it was already well insulated.

Yeah, I was wondering this myself. I haven't heard a single Katrina-type story of people languishing in sewer water while politicians were yukking it up in front of the cameras. Really, this is over and in the bag, where there were still people on the news begging for help at this point with Katrina. Hell, the really annoying part is all of the people on the Right claiming that Obama moved 'too fast' on this. It's a 'damned if you do, damned if you don't' situation, no matter how you slice it. Why the fark woud you want to be President, anyway?

/Yes I KNOW this isn't 'in the bag', but the Weeners is over, and it's cleanup time. That was what I mean by 'in the bag', the Weeners has been handled, and it's time to move to cleanup. I think the feds did a great job.

For those precincts that were already going to use paper ballots, and managed to save them from the flooding, I guess the military is just co-ordinating with the folks who would are already running the election. But for those precincts that were intending to use electronic machines, or who lost their supply of ballots in the hurricane, how the heck are they going to get correctly printed ballots by Tuesday, with or without military help? Voters aren't going to be writing out their ballot by hand on blank paper, are they? Clusterfarkasaurus Rex!

And shouldn't it be the state's own National Guard, not the Department of Defense, helping out in a situation like this?

Bull pucky. A well insulated house still uses electricity for lighting, computers, washing machine (few people are so green as to go back to washboards and tubs), microwave, and maybe even oven and stove (not everyone is on natural gas), for which you can buy your power from wind. Solar panels can be used for hot water even if the house needed no heating at all, and even hyper-insulated houses need to be able to handle, say, a day on which the door got opened a lot.

WTF did I type that got filtered? This is hilarious, but the filter is just stupid. I don't think I typed the word '1st', maybe '1st part', but either way, even though it's funny as Hell the way this worked out, it's pretty annoying to even have to filter out non curse-words. They are filtering words needed to actually construct a working sentence, at least people have a valid argument about cussing, although I pride myself on talking like a sailor at times.

Let's try it: First. I want to see if that its the word it filtered.

Actually, the worst is the dryers. But I tend to forget that because I live in the world's best climate for line drying. But I didn't know that going full Amish was in play when I made my statement. Obviously that would generate huge energy savings.

I originally included the dryer, but took it out because seriously green folks put up clotheslines and fight their HOA over it. I don't know what they do when it is rainy, or below freezing. But even an electric dryer can still be run on wind power, you just buy more of it.

"first" + "post" = "Boobies"

"first" + "comment" = "Weeners"

Yeah, I can't remember what word I used exactly now. I was talking about. The Weeners, but it screwed up my context so bad that I'm having issues remember what got changed.
