stoli n coke: aselene: Subby and the posters here have obviously missed the point: this story tells a higher truth. It is illustrative of a larger point, and whether or not it is strictly factual is irrelevant.

Welcome to post-Beckerhead America. People used to be entitled to their own opinions. Now, they're entitled to their own facts.


Saturday night I was told that Obama threw away $2 trillion out of a $762 billion dollar stimulus on failed green energy projects.

Bendal: My co-worker the Staunch Conservative met me at break with this news, on how non union workers were turned away from NJ. I just smiled and said "I'd like to rebut that when you're done", then told him what I'd heard. He just smirked and said "what liberal source did you get that from?". Just sent him the Snopes link on it; I expect to hear "derp derp derp" any minute now.


And then everybody clapped as you slipped your Guy Fawkes mask over your face, put on your fedora, sheathed your iPad and climbed on top of your Segway to ride to the next cubicle where disinformation is being disseminated.

Frankly, at least if they were union you would know that they have the training and experience to not kill themselves or you. I can do a lot of residential/commercial stuff, but for insurance purposes you don't want me in your house doing anything. To put it more in terms that people on Fark can understand- what would happen if a PC user tried to work on an Apple computer?

Cinaed: I think the 'papers' that crew thought were union papers were, far more likely of the licensing, certification, and insurance variety.

Simple misunderstanding thanks to a few simple people.


Yep. Fox News will run the correction at around 3:48 Thursday morning.
