Endive Wombat: As a conservative, It is astounding to me how I am becoming more and more alienated by the Republican Party, especially during this past election cycle. Yeah, I am a registered Republican who voted for the Democrats this time around.

For a bunch of God fearing, church going folk, they sure do not care much about social welfare, the poor, and the disenfranchised. I am starting to get sick of them focusing on shiat like women's access to abortion when they should be focusing on why she is needing one in the first place and fixing that - poor, young, uneducated, forced into prostitution, whatever...

Maybe it is because I am almost 30 and now with a little bit of life behind me, and have escaped my hometown - Orange County, SoCal...I am starting to see things a little differently...but the amount of crazy in the Republican Party is horrifying. While it is my own anecdotal observation...and don't get me wrong, the Dems have their mixed bag of far left cray cray too, I see the Dems as a lot more mainstream than anything else...it appears to me that they have done a pretty good job distancing themselves from the mega crazy and the Republicans need to do the same with the extreme religious right.


No one would fault you for voting for them though, based on your socio-economic background, you most likely would be voting in your economic self-interest (I mean, until the wealth was completely at the top and the poor were forced to murder you and your family).

More_Like_A_Stain: Endive Wombat: I see limited sized government more in a what I can and cannot do aspect rather than a monetary aspect. If I want to build a 60ft tall pink dildo on my property, I should be allowed.

You pickin' up what I'm throwin' down?


Big government again. Without out government intrusion, how will we know if your 60ft tall pink dildo is structurally sound? Are the materials used certified as safe for such an application? Were worker safety standards followed during construction? An entire new bureaucracy will have to be formed, as surely you can't be saying that the local county building department is prepared to take on such a burden.


So you think there will be an enormous number of people wanting big pink dildos in their yard if we were to allow it?

That's interesting.

Wait a minute...I got no pinata in my gift bag. What the fark, Obama?! I'm a goddamned Ohio voter! Now I'll never vote for you for reelection again!!!

Although perhaps it was a little more targeted for Ohioans...we did get a lovely Ohio State EBT card holder and a pack of cheetos to go with the huge bag of weed.

sparkeyjames: Dr.Zom: No Obamaphone?

Excuse me for getting serious here. The Obamaphone is actually a George W. Bush invention. I'm serious here stop laughing.
Republican Saint, Ronald Reagan in 1984 with the FCC created a program called Lifeline. A program to help welfare and other
government assistance recipients get affordable telephone service. In 2008 then President Bush updated this FCC program to include Cellular
phones. Hence GWB invented the Obamaphone or is that the GWBphone?
The program does not get one dollar of your income taxes. It is paid for by a sir-tax on existing telephone service.


Really? Do I have to do this for every thread, where people mis-remember history or whatever?

What!? That wasn't over the top whackadoodle enough for you? You really thought I was advocating an entire new regulatory agency charged with dildo construction safety?

QueenMamaBee: So where do I donate to the 60 Ft Tall Pink Dildo fund? Because that would be worth a road trip just to have an awesome story for the great grandkids one day.

TheOther: What about power consumption? Is it Green? Does it run on Ancient Alien D-cells or is it hooked up to the grid? When you turn it on, will the vibrations cause nearby buildings to collapse? earthquakes? Whale beachings?


Point of order: "Dildos" are not necessarily "Vibrators", and likewise, not all "Vibrators" are "Dildos".

I have Indian (casino, not mini-mart) ancestry, but at this time of year I'm just slightly darker than khaki. Do I have to wait til summer til I get my free stuff?

bulldg4life: Bleyo: We just haven't updated what we label ourselves.

People always fight to label themselves conservative. Part of it is making themselves seem sensible and part of it is the dirty connotation that liberal or progressive has become within american society.

I'm taking it back!

So I've heard this a few times now and my question is

HOW DO I GET MY STUDENT LOANS FORGIVEN!

Seriously, when was this magical plan to release people from their student loan debt passed? I want to get in on some of that sweet sweet loan forgiveness as my wife and I (now in our mid 30's) will most likely be just finishing paying off our grad school loans when my daughter is ready to go to college.

graggor: whats the deal folks? states that go for romney have a higher percentage of their population on welfare.
States that go for obama have a lower percentage on welfare....


Obama obviously bought off all of the states that vote for him by giving them enough handouts that they don't qualify for welfare any more. Hard to justify yourself at the welfare office when you roll up in your Obama Motors Cadillac.

Welfare checks.

wow.

You guys realize about 4.75 million people in the country receive welfare checks right?

And these are the amounts you can receive...
In georgia a single parent with a family of 3 receives 280 dollars. (this is the max if she is not working as well....280 dollars)

IN vermont its 640 a month.

How about food stamps?

Big liberal Illinois. 1.891 million people on food stamps in Illinois. Liberals... (12 million people live in Illinois)
Then big conservative Georgia... 1.91 million people on food stamps...Population 10 million...

How about Texas vs California?
California has 4.1 million people on food stamps with a population of 37.6 million people.
Texas has 3.9 million people on food stamps with a population of 25 million people...

I keep seeing a common theme here.

whats the deal folks? states that go for romney have a higher percentage of their population on welfare.
States that go for obama have a lower percentage on welfare....

weird.
