Happy Hours: Interesting, but I'm still disturbed that most of you treat this as a college football rivalry. Woohoo!!!!! The liberals are winning!!! Take that Fox News!.



Maybe we should care more about our country than we do about our political affiliation.


Tell that to FOX News...

ShawnDoc: FirstNationalBastard: ShawnDoc: Only amongst the 18-54 year old demographic. Once you throw in the geriatric crowd, Fox News wins handily.

Advertisers don't care about the geriatric crowd, so they're meaningless.

Those advertising gold investments, Viagra and other Fox advertising mainstays do. ;)


There's a few old people centered things to advertise, just like kid centered things for Nickelodeon, but the meat of advertising is for things the old don't partake much in like new cars and new iThings.

Go Team Dems! You tell those GOP assholes!

Rah rah rah! You're proving my point. You care more about denigrating the other party than you do about your country and for that I say fark you.


UH - that's not what this is about. It was inevitable that the swing to the extreme right in America would end - the only question was when. This is encouraging evidence that it has begun. It actually seems a little ahead of schedule to me - not enough boomers have started kacking yet, by my reckoning. But there are other factors involved, and hey - if we're getting there already, great. Try to remember that folks like me don't agree with you - we think this change is GOOD for the country. I can't speak for anyone else, but if I didn't think it was, I wouldn't be happy about it. You can tell me I'm wrong, but you have no reasonable basis upon which to call me insincere.

:"you guys"? I'm not the one who voted a straight party ticket. There were a couple of Republicans on my ballot this year, but there were many more Democrats.

Like I said, you should stop treating this like a college football rivalry and fark you if you just looked at a party and voted based on that.

Fox news was totally wrong about the Romney landslide, I would think if you watched fox news for their accuracy in reporting you might jump ship after that debacle.

I know accuracy in reporting and fox news gets a big laugh around here but I am sure more casual followers of politics might not know how bad they actually are.

It's not about who's winning, it's about making sure that people get correct information about the world around them so that, when we try to address problems that arise, we at least have the same groundwork upon which to debate the proper remedy to that problem. We don't have that right now, because Fox news is lying to the people who watch it. Flat out, telling people things that are demonstratively untrue, like, that Romney was going to win in a landslide. Like scientists are all in major scan regarding global climate change. Like, Liberals hate real Americans, that Obama is a treasonous communist/fascist who wants to destroy the country. These untruths poison the political discourse and make it impossible to address problems because, 1) they deny the problems exist, and 2) even if problems exist, Republicans cannot work with treasonous Democrats to solve the problems because Democrats are evil.

The election was the first time I've ever heard my father, a Fox news junkie, admit that Fox news fed them a line of provable BS. For the first time, my father doubts that Fox is giving them the truth, and that is a good thing. And that is why I celebrate when Fox loses viewers, because that means people may start to turn to real sources of information and make it possible for Americans to come together again to address issue they all face.

I saw a bumper sticker on the back of gigantic pickup truck yesterday that read "I DON'T BELIEVE THE LIBERAL MEDIA".

So, obviously, to many people being correct and reality based takes a far backseat to feeding them confirmation bias.

It all makes sense now...

Neo-Nazis use the number 88 as a code to represent the slogan Heil Hitler. The letter H is eighth in the alphabet, so 88 is meant to stand for HH. The number is sometimes used in combination with the number 14 (e.g. 1488 or 14/88). In this context, the number 14 stands for the "Fourteen Words", which is a white nationalist slogan created by convicted terrorist David Lane. Examples of usage include: the song "88 rock'n'roll band" by the neo-Nazi band Landser, and the names of the groups Column 88, Unit 88, White Legion 88 and Barselc88. Holocaust museum shooter James von Brunn often signed his writings as "JVB-88."

On second thought, I've been told - right here on Fark - that less taxes equal more freedom.

The Democratic People's Republic of Korea has no taxes on its citizens, so it really is the Best Korea! And it has "Democratic" right in the name, so it's probably a true, direct democracy!

Depends on where you grew up, of course. I actually spent junior high school in rural Texas, too. (Not too far from Hillsboro.) That school was definitely 88 percent white, if not more. But a few towns over, that wasn't the case, and there was a lot more diversity.

But most conservatives' memory of how America "used to be" is fantasy, anyway.

Because I love Chris Matthews. Especially when he makes reference to old movies. Like regarding Republican obstructionism: "What is this? Groucho Marx singing 'Whatever it is.... I'm against it!"? Or pondering if Iraq is in a civil war: "What do they need to do to have it be called a civil war? Have someone attack Fort Sumpter?"

Cavuto never finds anything wrong with Wall Street.

According to him, it's always everyone else but Wall Street's fault when the economy sours.

That's why I can't take that clown seriously. Might as well have the President of Goldman Sachs hosting the show instead.

Rah rah rah! You're proving my point. You care more about denigrating the other party than you do about your country and for that I say fark you.

See? This is where you guys start to look a little unhinged. What have the House GOP majority actually accomplished in terms of legislation? They are the least productive Congress in 65 years. That's not partisan to point out. That's acknowledging reality. They couldn't even pass the farking Jobs for Veterans bill, or the Violence Against Women Act, or the Farm bill, or the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act.

The leadership has sunk 1.5 million dollars into defending DOMA. Of the roughly 3,000 bills they have put to a vote, how many of those were about abortion and the names of bridges? And how many laws did they actually pass? 60 something. The worst record in my lifetime.

How is pointing this out partisan? Or should no American dare to question the effectiveness of their government when their government is the one you voted for? Because that would be "partisan"? No absolutely. I'm the partisan.


Lol. Love how liberals ignore the whole senate side of the equation. Please show me the senate budget. Please show me the senate votes on house passed bills. Reid blocks more legislation than any other person in congress. Grow up.
