pecosdave: Fine.

Go start a local ISP right now. Take advantage of those fibers run directly to the consumers residence that they decide who gets to plug into them? Oh? They don't exist? Why don't you run some of your own to their homes then. What? Regulations don't allow it without an incredibly high barrier of expensive certifications, permits, and licenses? Well go get those. What? You're still not allowed because now all the other carriers are lobbying to make new laws to prevent it and suing on various shaky legal premises that shouldn't exist?

Yeah. Almost as hilarious as you thinking it's hilarious.



I can't right now. I'm too busy writing sub prime mortgages and selling them off to the banks. But hopefully in a few years my waste control business will be in full swing when the LP takes over congress. I plan to collect everyone used tires and car batteries for a small feel and dump them in a hole that's right above the water table.

If that doesn't work out, I'll start my sub par meat business. all meat personally inspected by earl of course. I'll make a ton by buying all the old product the local stares can't sell after awhile. a few injections of a "solution" and my beef will look pretty again and I can sell it for half price!

But then again....I'll have tons of competition....but that's what the market is all about! Thank god for forward thinking libertarians! down with regulations!

log_jammin: watching the right try to self reflect is hilarious.


It's a great example of a positive feedback loop in action.

Meanwhile, on April 26 of 2012 (a mere 6 and a half months ago), Erick Erickson said:

"When you have a massive black turnout for Barack Obama, and he wins them by 90%, you need as many Christian evangelicals turning out to offset that for Mitt Romney. He needs to not take social conservatives for granted."

I really want to find a reasonable nook of the internet where I can discuss conservative/small-libertarian ideas without being lumped in with Bachmann/Palin, and where I don't have to deal with the snark-fark patrol that writes off the entire idea of a GOP or conservatism and packa ...


Would that there be some actual Politicians that would vote or legislate this way. The "lumping" of the rational and irrational was done by the Republican party to achieve their permanent majority. Don't blame me for considering them (or anyone who self-identifies with them) as unified in their derp.

What is this the origin of this "Free stuff" talking point? Was Bill O'Reilly clever enough to create that on his own?

And where is my free stuff? I have not received one Obama phone and I thought that Obamacare was deemed to be a tax.

I had planned to gloat for only one week but it seems like zero lessons were learnt. Hence, maybe pointing and laughing may make the message stick better.

sprawl15: fringedmyotis: Last lines from TFA: "It's not time to throw out social conservatives. It's time to accept that without them the GOP would be even a smaller party even less able to reach out to the hispanic demographic all the smart people say they need to embrace. Addition through subtraction never really works well."

Good that they're trying to apply some math. Not so good that it's still limited to their bubble of social conservatism.

Sad part is, though, that they're saying they can't risk the 10% they have to go after the 90% that they need to ever have a chance of winning.


You go to election with the voters you have, not the voters you wish you had.

pecosdave: While you're off selling stinky meat I'll make sure I buy all of mine from stores and distributors approved by the Safe Food Alliance. There will always be a place for cut rate crap like you sale, but the intelligent consumers will know not to buy from anywhere but an SFA butcher or possibly from someone they know and trust.

You're not going to have a lot of time to perform your butcher job as everyone who drinks water from the water table, for example, everyone, will be collectively suing your ass because pollution of the water table does infringe on the rights of others as understood as by the "do no harm to others" requirement to existing. Libertarian approved. Remember, we're not Anarchist, there's a big difference.

Go write all the sub-prime mortgages you like. When the loan recipients can't pay what are you going to do? We plan to eliminate the FED and the FDIC won't be there to bail your ass out. It looks to me like some people are going to get some very cheap houses out of the deal. You might be able to evict a few but eventually the courts are just going to call you an idiot for it.

Remember banks were ordered by the government to make those loans available to begin with.


The rotten meat I sell is certified by the Safer Food Alliance (which just so happens to be headquartered in the back room of my store). You can trust the Safer Food Alliance. Really . You can.

And that pollution in the water table isn't from my company. Good luck proving beyond a reasonable doubt in court that I am the source of that specific pollution.

That's really all I need to know about you. I'm not going to argue with an idiot. good night.


Completely ignored the link and all the implications in it. I guess he decided to stop arguing with himself and go to bed.

By the way, the article says nothing of the sort. It's Erickson saying that the GOP will lose horrifically if they don't embrace the social conservatives FURTHER. The headline and initial paragraph is the premise he rejects.

I would say out of the country, but out of the GOP is a good start.
