whizbangthedirtfarmer: Only because they know "more" "American history" than you, thus rendering your opinions on any subject completely invalid. Yeah, I know the type.


Oh, you've met him! :)

When I giggle and call the apostles Phil and Bart, he gets this expression on his face... Ahhh... Small pleasures. :)

HeartBurnKid: Lord Dimwit: I love how WND compared Obama's administration to what the Israelites suffered in Egypt.

Well, both the oppression of conservatives by the Obama administration and the enslavement of Israelites by Egyptians are completely fictional. So there's that.


And both will be parroted as gospel in perpetuity by the exact same people.

HeartBurnKid: Citrate1007: #1 Actually a valid point; however, fark you job creators if you paid employees more they wouldn't turn to Uncle Sam to get their sons/daughters medical care.

No, it's not a valid point. Except for things like goodwill, businesses don't hire people out of the goodness of their hearts; they hire them to get jobs done. All cutting hours ends up doing is having less people do more work, which, if those people are already doing all they can, means work will go undone or be done inefficiently. If your first thought is "cut employee hours" or "fire people", you're shooting yourself in the foot. Your business is going to go under, and you're probably going to blame Obama for that too.


President Obama is to blame; if he were not President, the business owners would not be impulsively cutting back hours and suffering lost productivity as a consequence.

HotWingConspiracy: Headso: Jesus the 33rd: Ed. note: TPM decided not to include incidents where mental illness may have been a factor.

Haha, would this be the drunk woman with the youtube obsession who was drinking butternut schnapps?

some lady also ran over her husband because Obama won.

And there is the guy that killed himself over it. Seriously. Note said so and everything.

It was the funniest thing I've ever read.


Did that ever make it to Fark? I submitted a story about that last night and it was redlit.

KhamanV: Doc Daneeka: TFA: Ed. note: TPM decided not to include incidents where mental illness may have been a factor.

How do they distinguish mental illness from mainstream Republicanism?

By a distinct and observable thread of becoming a giant asshole. I wish I didn't know this for a fact. TL;DR dump of exhausted 'I have been dealing with this shiat for years now' coming, if you wanna scroll on.

My father was always a Reagan conservative but interested in progressive technology and power. This meant that, even though we were poor as hell, we were still one of the first families to get a Commodore and get into BBSs. He later made his own computers. Flashing forward into the current years, this interest in technology also meant he was on Facebook before me - and the FoxNews site, and Glocktalk, now one of the more infamous right wing echo chamber nuthouses. My father, a sweet and funny man with right wing tendencies has morphed over the last 4 years, after 30+ years of my knowing him, into a GIANT FLAMING ASSHOLE.

Racist Obama photoshops? Yep, they're on his facebook. Secessionist petitions for the state he lives in, despite the irony of his patriotism and troop support? Myep. Completely oblivious and hateful calls for the people who voted Obama (of which he damn well realizes his kid and their spouse did) to suffer doom and disaster? Oh yeah, those meme pics are there, too. Fark me, right?

This fringe right wing shiat has functionally killed whatever it was I knew in him. I wish I could find this tea party batshiat stuff funny. I wish he were just nuts.


My friend's dad is what you'd call a Reagan Democrat; i.e. the socially liberal, fiscally conservative (A Blue Dog in today's terms). Then Obama got elected. That all changed. He went full tea derp in 2009. It's a shame and it put a lot of distance between my friend's father and him.

Just wondering how it is possible that in 2004 the Republicans apparently stole the election by rigging Diebold voting machines, but in 2012 Republicans completely forgot how to do this? So can we admit there were Democrat nut-jobs in 2004 as well? That ranted about a stolen election, etc.?

Crazies exist on both sides.

The Democrats stole the 2012 election. An anonymous poster on a news forum (as a Disqus-based forum is the ideal site for reporting such an event, certainly a superior venue than state or federal law enforcement agencies) has uncovered a vast conspiracy, originating with Chicago political thugs, that hacked every voting machine in every "battleground" state so that 5% of Mr. Romney's votes would be removed from the totals. No actual details on how this "hacking" of a diverse range of voting systems across hundreds of different precincts and thousands of different voting jurisdictions have yet been released, but evidence is supposedly coming "soon".

Alternatively, when supporters of one party lose an election, they "cherry-pick" information suggesting possible voting irregularities at individual polling stations without actually conducting follow-up research to verify the accuracy or the context of the claims that they issue as evidence for their accusations of fraud.

Yep, same here buddy. I think Fox News is just like Infowars, it just brainwashes the person with derp AND they stop even considering anything else. It's all a "conspiracy".

Does your Dad have some sort of other issue(s) too, I swear it got worse after not being diagnosed with Sleep Apnea for so long, I think it caused brain damage too. Also, the infowars nutter friends of mine have been diagnosed with mental illnesses too.

Hell, I live in Toronto now and the last time my Dad visited me he kept pointing out tan people and asking me if they we're muslims. No, I think they are farking Italian or maybe some kind of Spanish! Mr. Black-Irish-I-hate-everyone-thinking-I'm-an-Italian.

Mine has had mild heart trouble in the past and one knee has been replaced with the other on its way. Good thing he has Medicare and his social security benefits to help out with that. Nothing mental; no depression or anything, though god knows I'm there.

My grandfather was a crazy ex-Navy RAH RAH AMERICA FARK BLACK PEOPLE (except this one dude who works for me, he's totally a good Black Person and not a neeeegira) stereotype so maybe it's genetic and setting in with age. It's Crazy Old White Man Itis, not to be confused with The Itis.

That dude killed his wife and his kids too. I don't find that very funny. I find it really, really depressingly sad.

Are you sure it's the same guy? The article I read made no mention of a dead family.


Florida dude overdosed on Seroquel - a pill used to treat Depression, Bipolar disorder, and other mental illnesses. Dude was already hurt before all this.

But two prominent conservatives, Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) and RedState founder Erick Erickson, called on the wannabe secessionists to end their struggle.

Rick Perry just called you people out on your derp. Rick Mutha****ing Perry.

How do you know they didn't rig machines--Just not enough of them?
There have been people saying that turnout was rather low...how do you know that's not due to the paper-trail-less machines just "forgetting" some Obama votes?

FTA:

4. Four More Years: S.O.S

A Florida man (pictured above) said he started to display the American flag upside down the day after the election because he believes "this country is in distress." Meanwhile, a man in Texas did the same. Both are veterans, but people in their towns have responded to the gestures with anger. The presentation is never permitted under U.S. Flag Code "except as a signal of dire distress in instances of extreme danger to life or property."


Interesting, done by a member of the very Party whose members try and get people like war protesters arrested for doing the same thing. Funny thing is; These people don't smell their own hypocrisy. I guess they only "love" their flag when it's convenient...

An acquaintance is a Papa John's franchisee and so has some perspective on this particular situation - the franchise model is going to squeeze them.

If a franchisee has more than 50 employees, they'll be on the hook for subsidizing employee insurance. If this happened to all restaurants then prices would just go up across the board to compensate. But some will get hit with that, some won't, and PJ may or may not deign to allow them to raise prices.

The guy in Florida? Link

Or the other guy in Virginia who also killed his family? Link

Why do you find these stories to be funny? Because the people who died were conservatards?

I find it sad that these persons, who were obviously mentally ill, were influenced by the derp mongers to the extent that they felt that death was preferable to a second Obama term.

I am angry at the derp mongers, but I suppose these incidents are part of the cost of allowing free speech in our society. (Note: I am NOT in any way stating that free speech should be curtailed to protect the safety of gullible or insane persons.)

Yeah, I know... [welcometofark.jpg]

Riots And Racial Slurs

But when you behave in precisely the same fashion, you're not "rioting" at all, the evil media is just portraying you unfairly and the police are brutal dictatorial thugs trying to keep down the common man.

For those keeping score: A violent hate filled mob that riots and destroys things is a bad thing when the subject is Obama, but it's a good thing when the subject is capitalism.

Were the Occupy protestors upset that capitalism is black?
