Happy Hours: ginandbacon: Maybe you should direct that at the House GOP assholes

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.


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.

If you care about the country you would obviously be keen to see the demise of Fox news.

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.

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.

I thought those articles about GOPers wanting to leave the country were hilarious. Where would they go? Any country that has the sort of policies they think they want is a third world mud-hole. And mostly full of brown people to boot.

Yes, because this year we were so overwhelmed by liberal hyperpartisanship that every single pollster thought the liberals would sit at home on election day, cheering so hard they forgot to vote.

Ablejack: O'Reilly cares about ratings. He has often argued that Fox's higher rating meant conservatism is evidently the more popular philosophy. Now I suppose Bill O'Reilly thinks the liberal voice better expresses the beliefs and concerns of our nation.


I wonder if they realize just how many people who don't agree with them watch/listen to them... I'm talking about Beck, Limbaugh, O'Reilly, etc....

I love how social conservatives are, by definition, always going to lose. There has never been a time in history when socially excepted norms and customs were held constant for a sustained period. They have always been in a state of change. To fight for social conservatism is simply asking for a lifetime of being on the losing side, and also asking for history to remember you alongside all the other oppressive farkheads that history threw in the dustbin.

I'm a liberal. But due to my limited education, I don't really have tons of options. I'm stuck here. Not that I'm complaining, much. I'd probably hate living in another country anyway. Would be too much of a culture shock. With maybe the possible exception of Canada... maybe.
