The soldier eating a stick of butter obviously symbolizes... um... uh... a soldier. Eating. A stick of butter. And the policeman has finally realized that Coors Light sucks.

On a positive note, the Muslim gentleman is being kind enough to burn Atlas Shrugged. His sacrifice for the good of all Mankind must not go unnoticed.


I'm torn on that one. On the one hand, no book should ever be burned, as all books represent a bit of the human mind, and therefore, must be preserved. On the other, greed is not a virtue.

Yes. The latest is "Obamanation"

[i.imgur.com image 850x573]

Compared to his previous works, "Obamanation" is utterly incoherent, without a single consistent or meaningful message. I believe that President Obama's re-election has caused Mr. McNaughton to become even less connected to reality than he was previously.

Well his "interactive link" for the picture is up now. I'll be the first to admit that I was wrong, this really IS one of his pieces. I agree with you. Normally his shiat is crazy, but ordered. This one's all over the place. The rooster, for example, is supposed to represent Jeremiah Wright.

McNaughton's work is expensive?

Why would a conservative buy a piece worth a lot of money... and therefore be something you'd want to display (presuming you are proud of your purchase), but yet have it be something that fills you with illogical rage every time you see it?

Who the fark would put out big bucks to buy a McNaughton original? Do they have rooms dedicated to Obama hate?

I'll tell you one thing, Obama is a god to some people and it is the conservatives. He is their god of irrational hate.

Messiah of Misery.

The cons, er, REDS, scuse me, are the only ones I know of who have ever, EVER referred to BamBam as "Messiah."

So yeah, by all means, Reds, keep screaming about the "Messiah".

Well, yea. That's exactly what I was insinuating. Although, I'm not sure I like the moniker you used because it leaves out the irrational part. If you were to use that on a con, they might say that.. yea, Obama is the messiah of misery for America... so, you know, gotta keep the reference that the only rage, misery, hate is on the part of the cons.


qorkfiend: Most belief systems seem to require an entity to focus hatred upon, so in light of the happy little world the Cons have made up for themselves to inhabit, it makes perfect sense. If the Devil doesn't exist, you have to invent him.


Ed Grubermann: [National Review cover of Sarah Palin as The One]


The Jami Turman Fan Club: You know, there used to be a name for that. Take an animal, a goat perhaps, to represent all that's evil with the world. The villagers would then vilify it, throw things at it, and drive it out of the village.

I used to know what that was called, but the name escapes me.


andrewagill: Is that like the Sultan of Swat?


jst3p: The great Bambi?


Ed Gruberman gets it. The Hebrew word transliterated as ‶Messiah" literally means, ‶the Anointed One." Sarah Palin actually was anointed under the hands of witch-hunting Ugandan minister Pastor Murthee specifically to lead America in the name of Jesus! The Dominionists were so sure that it was the Manifest Will of Almighty God that McCain win in 2008, and that God would shortly thereafter ‶call him home" (he did, after all, have melanoma, far and away the deadliest of the skin cancers, twice!) leaving the LORD′s Anointed Palin to ascend to the Presidency to lead this nation ‶back to" (their version of) Jesus.

And then, the unthinkable happened: McCain (and thus Palin) lost! The LORD′s Anointed went down in defeat! The Manifest Will of Almighty God had somehow been thwarted! But how!? Who or what could do that!?

Now do you understand why Obama was often called ‶the Antichrist" (a phrase that does not appear anywhere in the Bible, for the record)? Who else could thwart the Manifest will of Almighty God?

In another thread this weekend (I think it was the Southern Governors thread), one FARKer repeatedly challenged another (a right-winger) to come up with a reason other than racism to explain the virulent hatred of Obama. The right-winger never came through, but I personally think that this reason trumps the racism angle (which is icing on the cake for many right-wingers).

So, they mockingly call Obama the Left-Wing / LIEberal / etc. ‶Anointed One" aka ‶Messiah" out of basically the mother of all sour grapes, because their own Anointed One got soundly defeated, just as it seemed so certain to them that God was finally about to ‶take America back."

I know where I'd like to spike a football. Hell, I'd even sign it first. I wonder if I could preemptive legal defense funds through a Kickstarter project?

Back to the topic of Dale and not McNaughton, notice how the majority of his paintings has a Bible passage reference, usually in small white text? For extra fun, look those up.

Example: the one about the kid making a clay pony in the Dicky Dawkins Day School as part of learning about evolution has as its reference ‶Luke 17:1−2." Know what that says? It's the one where Jesus says that it is better to have a millstone tied around your neck and be cast into the depths of the sea than to cause a child to sin (or to ‶offend" a child, according to the KJV and some others).

Check ′m all out!

Unknown_Poltroon: COMALite J: This is why the Republican Party would do well to never, ever, mention the word ‶Teleprompter" ever again!

That was farked up. Really frightening.


More than you know. More even than Ben Swann said in that video, and in his follow-up which talks about the DNC doing something similar (the unfortunately far more famous but far less serious incident with the vote over symbolic language in the Democratic Party platform mentioning God and recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel [that ‶vote′s" ‶results" were also pre-scripted in the teleprompter as shown by video). In that one he rightly points out that both the RNC and DNC bosses have, by these shenanigans, renounced any claim to the whole concept of a Democratic Republic (the terms their very Parties′s names are based on!). All that matters to them is that they retain power over their Parties, even at the cost of losing elections. The will of their delegates, and the voters that elected them, no longer matter in the slightest to them.

But here′s what Mr. Swann missed, or at least, didn′t mention:

• First off, just how big is a ²/3 supermajority? Many people think that it′s not all that much bigger than an ordinary majority, but it is. For an ordinary majority, you only need one more ‶Aye" vote than the total of
‶Nay" votes. 50% + 1. Not so for a supermajority.

Do the math: 1 + 2 = 3, right? Well, ¹/3 + ²/3 = ³/3 = the whole! Since 2 is twice as much as 1 (1 + 1 = 2), likewise ²/3 is twice as much as ¹/3, so it follows that for a ²/3 supermajority, for each and every ‶Nay" vote, there must be a bare minimum of two ‶Aye" votes!

For a floor voice vote such as both Conventions held in both cases, the ‶Ayes" would have to be audibly clearly louder and more numerous than the ‶Nays" to clearly indicate even an ordinary majority! If the vote only required an ordinary majority, the Chair could not declare it passed unless the volume and numbers of the ‶Ayes" were clearly and obviously louder and greater than the ‶Nays". That's for an ordinary majority, and it′s clear from these videos that neither Convention could legitimately say that they had even that much!

If there is any question as there would′ve been in both cases were the platform and rules changes requiring only an ordinary majority instead of the ²/3 supermajority that both actually required, the Chair is not supposed to simply declare the winner. S/he is supposed to hold a slower vote method that involves a clearer, more reliable means of counting the votes to make sure. At the very least, s/he should call for a show of hands! If that remained unclear, then a full-fledged one-by-one roll-call vote is in order, or paper or electronic ballot voting or some such (which American Idol has shown can be done in seconds with modern technology ― arguably even faster than a floor voice vote!).

For a ²/3 supermajority to be legitimately declared the winner of a floor voice vote without requiring resorting to show of hands or roll call or other voting method, the ‶Ayes" would have to be audibly clearly more than twice as loud as the ‶Nays"!! Listen to the video again: they couldn't even legitimately have declared ordinary majorities! No way in aytch ee double hockey sticks could they declare a ²/3 supermajority passage!

No, in both cases, the measures were soundly defeated! Yet the Chairs declared both as having passed, as pre-scripted in the teleprompters!

• In the RNC case, immediately after Bœhner announced the sham pre-scripted ‶results" of the ‶vote," there erupted shouts of ‶U.S.A.!! U.S.A.!!" Delegates later stated that they had previously been instructed by the Party bosses to shout that as soon as the results were announced.

Why? Listen carefully. At the same time as those shouts, you can barely, but clearly if you listen carefully, hear other shouts: ‶Objection!" and ‶Point of Order!" The rules of parliamentary procedure state that if the Chair hears either of those things said or shouted by anyone present after a floor voice vote or similar proceeding, s/he is obligated to immediately halt all further proceedings until the objection or point of order has been addressed. Those pre-arranged shouts of ‶U.S.A.!! U.S.A.!!" conveniently (almost) drowned those out, giving Bœhner cause to claim that he heard no objection (as the teleprompter had also been pre-scripted for him to say ― and note that he rushed to say it)!

Which leads to the even bigger issue that Mr. Swann didn′t mention, but first, a brief list of the differences between the RNC and subsequent DNC ‶incidents" (not to downplay how very serious what the DNC did was, but they are by no means equivalent):

• The DNC did not (to the best of my knowledge, anyway) hold the delegations of two whole states and the leader of the opposition on the relevant committee captive on a shuttle bus until after the vote had happened, clearly intended to stack the vote. The RNC not only did this (as Mr. Swann reveals in the video I linked to before), but also (as revealed in an earlier Ben Swann video) had earlier refused to seat another State′s delegates (because they were largely Ron Paul supporters) ― in other words, acting as if this proposed rule had already passed!

• Both the DNC and RNC pre-scripted the results of their votes, yes. But as I said before, the DNC one was about symbolic language in the Party platform, which, while it managed to rile up segments of the population, doesn′t actually affect much. The RNC vote was on a permanent change to the RNC rules that are designed to forever prevent any grassroots movement from ever again rising to power within the GOP. As Ben points out, had it been in effect in 2008, it would′t kept the Tea Party from rising to power and there would be no Tea Party Caucus today, and had it been in effect in 1976, Ronald Reagan would never have become President. The RNC one may not involve the news-bait sound-bite words ‶God" and ‶Jerusalem," but it had far more serious of an actual impact on the future of this nation.

• Both the DNC and RNC pre-scripted the results of their votes, but look at how differently the Chairs handled this. The DNC's Los Angeles Mayor Villarosa obviously wanted to do the right thing. He showed that he had a conscience. He knew that there wasn′t even a clear majority, let alone supermajority, voting for it. He apparently didn′t know proper parliamentary procedure, though, because instead of asking for a show of hands or roll call, he repeated the voice vote calls three times. Finally, he was told to just proceed to read the script and ignore what the delegates voted! Unfortunately, he backed down and did precisely that. I′d have a lot of respect for him had he stood his ground.

Now compare what Mayor Villarosa did with what Speaker Bœhner did: Bœhner simply ran roughshod over the express will of the delegates, which, even after their blatant stacking of the vote by blocking the seating of one opposition State's delegates through invalid procedural methods (acting as if this rule were already in effect) and holding the delegations of two other States captive on a shuttle bus, preventing them from being present for this critical vote, they still didn′t have even a clear ordinary majority, let alone supermajority! Yet, unlike Mayor Villarosa, Speaker Bœhner didn't even bat an eye nor show even a moment′s hesitation, not so much as a twinge of shame nor even of conscience, over what he was doing to his own Party′s delegates! He flagrantly ignored the proper rules of parliamentary procedure and of the whole concept of voting, and instead handed down the pre-dictated decreed outcome from the GOP bosses. Without even a hint of conscience!

• And that leads us to the really big difference in seriousness between the two: You just watched the Speaker of the United States Congress House of Representatives, arguably the most powerful directly elected person in the nation, completely ignore the very basis of democracy in a key vote for his own Party, involving his own delegates! This brings up a vital question: has he done this before, in Congress!? Has he sent bills on to the Senate or even the President that did not actually pass a majority vote of the House? Has he declared bills as not passing that did pass? We just watched him demonstrate how willing he is, without a hint of shame, to flagrantly perjure the results of a floor vote! This, mind you, for his own Party! These happen in the House as well!

ArgusRun: shastacola: Why is Glenn Beck choking a fox? I'd look it up on Urban Dictionary, but I'm afraid.

I thought he was farking it.

That said, he seems to be somewhat of an equal opportunity hyperbole-painter. Ann and Glen aren't portrayed positively, and there were a few anti-Mitt images too.

It must be exhausting to be outraged by everyone.



I think he believes that Ann is a sellout (and contortionist) for supporting Romney the moderate. Beck was strangling Fox because of bad publicity he was generating before he left...and because some of his theories are just far-out, not purely far-right. Anti-Mitt is pretty obvious, Mitt created Obamacare and supported abortion rights (and is a Mormon!)

Goddamn I am sick to death of the religious right's misconception of evolution, the big bang, abiogenesis and athiesm.

None of that shiat on that greenboard even represents what atheists and scientists (including non-atheist scientists) believe.

I feel like I'm tripping just from looking at those. What in name of God was this person thinking?
