And actually, Sir Lion, might be more appropriate, but appropriateness and Fark are distant cousins, no?

If they would have had the marathon they could have trucked in everyone that needed water and got it from the race.

Bloomburg should be ashamed of himself. What an attention whore.

Max Awesome: Good.

Does this mean the race organizers are going to donate all that bottled water that the runners were planning to dump on their heads to the poor New Yorkers who have been without food/water/shelter since Monday?


Yes From CNN: "The group behind the New York City Marathon - which was supposed to happen Sunday but was canceled today - will donate supplies to storm relief efforts, the New York City mayor's office says."

scotchcrotch: OBAMA HATES GUIDOS.

Lemme finish, lemme finish. Katrina I got mad props for you but Sandy is the greatest hurricane of all time! All time!

Now if you'll excuse me, I have to eat cheerios out of Kim's butthole and upload the video.


Eh, I posted a pic of that situation guy on fb captioned: "New Jersey tanning salons still without power? BARACK OBAMA DOESN'T CARE ABOUT ORANGE PEOPLE". Actually got some bites on that one.

It's kind of surprising how little it takes to get folks on the left foaming at the mouth. Oh, wait-- no it isn't. They seem to hate everything.

Now he'll rant about it being cancelled. What else would you expect?

I'm pretty sure that's the pundit version of dividing by zero.

No no no.. It's easy, he'll just say that Bloomberg purposely waited until all the participants were there so that he could take all their money and then send them on their way. Without their 48oz sodas too.


And he would have a point.

THIS. It's hard to take anyone seriously that can't make a valid point without using stupid nicknames. Dumb-ney? Fartbongo? Crap like that undermines whatever intelligence you might have had behind your argument, and warrants no reciprocal respect at all.

I read the headline and honestly thought that Romney had drop out. I was expecting a story about his missing tax returns and some very embarrassing revelation that came from them, or a staffer walking in on him getting a blow job from Ryan, or maybe that he had died after getting a tear in his magic under ware.

Good job subby.

poot_rootbeer: pissedoffmick: In two weeks let me know how many people freeze to death due to a lack of diesel fuel (claim 1) or die for lack of drinking water (claim 2).

I never claimed either was a life-or-death situation. Why are you pretending I did?

In terms of who needs that fuel and water more: New Yorkers need it more than visiting jocks. That simple.


Because you suggested a death toll due to those 2 factors would take 1-2 weeks to become clear, or exist at all.

I missed all the stories of people in dire need of fuel / water, i guess. The ones where "visiting jocks" were looting resources rather than dropping millions into an economy that could probably use the money.

It appears that the wild outrage in your original post was for those people who have been made slightly uncomfortable by the worst storm to ever hit the area.

They didn't cancel a marathon. They cancelled a subsidized payout to Kenyan nationals and their white "managers" who take a large cut of their prize winnings.

But no matter. They just bus em to the next marathon or 10k race being held in the next town over, and they do that week in and week out, like its a job.

It's press conference press conference press conference press conference when Bloomberg wants to bask in the limelight, but he gets a little blowback and it's all "Bloomberg said in a statement".

Maybe your FB friends are whiny p*ssies, as there was nothing offensive about the photo as you describe it. Whiny p*ssies exist on both sides of the spectrum. If they're that thin-skinned you should probably just ignore them.

It's also cute that you accuse Farkers of politicizing a dog turd. Perhaps you've missed our esteemed GOP leaders and pundits desperately trying to use dead Americans at Benghazi as a means to smear the president. It's disgusting. Clean up your own backyard before criticizing mine.

Yeah, about that... the white house press secretary as well as the UN Ambassador tried desperately for almost two weeks to pin that whole thing on a shiatty youtube video nobody saw, when it was being reported by foreign news agencies that that particular attack had nothing to do with the protests going on at other installations elsewhere in the world. The Libyan president even stated that the attack was coordinated and unrelated to the protests.

Your definition of disgusting seems to differ from mine.I find it disgusting to lie to the families of those that were murdered (as well as the rest of the country/world) simply to keep the president from looking bad. As a side note, I'm a longtime EVE player, and Sean Smith was an acquaintance of mine. Being blatantly lied to regarding the circumstances surrounding his death for political purposes is inexcusable.

Obama called it an act of terror the day after it happened. Nearly all of the ones responsible have been apprehended in just six weeks without the use of an invasion of soldiers or a rain of missiles. It's been proven that the demonstration against the video was used by the terrorists as a smokescreen for their attack. And the Republicans spilled beans about the CIA being there, making it an even better choice for a target.

Time to try another way of attacking the president. This one quickly turned against you and all those like you. Go back to your plans for turning America into a misogynist, homophobic, ignorant, rich man's paradise, Christian theocracy that declares wars at Israel's beck and call.

jayhawk88: Atypical Person Reading Fark: Honest Bender: How nice of him to wait until 2 days before the marathon to cancel it... I'm sure no one traveled to attend...

They're reporting that 40,000 out of 47,000 are already there - living in their hotel rooms, paying money, eating out, etc. So the money came, but no race.

Yeah this is bordering on shenanigans to me. Probably no one would have been able to get plane tickets refunded, but hotels typically have 24 hour cancellation policies, correct? Plus yeah all the extra spending.

Not many people will biatch I'm sure, as they were planning on spending that money anyway and they're still in New Yorks and can sightsee or whatever, but waiting until now to cancel is very shady.


perfectly timed by the politicians who care only about money. This should have been cancelled in time for runners to cancel their flights and get refunds
