Pants full of macaroni!!: utharda: James!: I look on this as more a business opportunity than anything else.  Pretty soon they'll want a conservative Amazon, conservative Google, conservative Twitter, conservative Fark.  It's time to get in on the ground floor of the right's complete divorce from reality.

Date line 1-20-2013

Today we're pleased to announce that manmazon.com, the conservative alternative to amazon has increased its book collection by 100%, now offering you both the NIV and King James Bibles.

Heretics! Everyone knows that if it ain't KJV, it ain't the Bible!


And where's its companion volume, Atlas Shrugged?

I'm... pretty sure it's satire. It straddles the line pretty impressively. Or maybe the bar has been lowered so much by insane conservatives.

"To have any semblance of fairness, PolitiFact should play it 50/50 and present an equal number of lies from both sides. They clearly are not concerned with any pretense."

To have any semblance of fairness, Nate Silver should play it 50/50 and present an equal number of polls showing Republicans leading as polls showing Democrats leading.

To have any semblance of fairness, scientific journals should play it 50/50 and publish an equal number of articles supporting Darwinists as those supporting Intelligent Design.

To have any semblance of fairness, NASA should play it 50/50 and spend half of its budget on space programs that assume the Earth is round, and half its budget on space programs that assume the Earth is flat. They clearly are not concerned with any pretense.

In 2010, the NOAA was caught reporting hilariously inaccurate temperatures in some localities in an apparent attempt to report higher average temperatures. We're not talking about slight massaging of the data -- the NOAA reported temperatures of 430 degrees Fahrenheit in northern Lake Michigan.

The more we dig into this shadowy, quasi-military organization, the more we're frightened. We'll have a full report in the days ahead.

First, an aside: trickle-down economics does work, regardless of what Business Week thinks or claims. We've seen it just in the last decade: thanks to the Bush Tax Cuts (and despite Obama's efforts to undo them), corporate profits are at an all-time high. Tax cuts for the rich work. What economists understand and which the Business Week author does not is that trickle-down takes time. It's a two-step process:

Take the profits earned from a tax cut
Invest these profits into higher wages and more jobs, thus helping the economy.
The Bush tax cuts were only enacted ten years ago. Trickle-down takes time, and the economy will begin to see the rewards soon -- that is, of course, unless Obama is successful in raising taxes on the wealthy. If that's the case, he will have undone ten years of economic progress.


Wow - they, they, um wow...

Cargo cult science refers to practices that have the semblance of being scientific, but do not in fact follow the scientific method - when someone wants to emulate another's efforts and results but does not understand all the details involved, but does it anyway.

Conservatives believe that the Bible is factual, so using science and observations of reality as a method of fact checking is a liberal bias.

They also unfairly tarnish Michele Bachmann as a liar, when anybody who follows her already understands that many of her statements aren't meant to be truthful in the first place -- she simply says what she feels.

Maine GOP claims voter fraud
Chuck Davis | November 15th, 2012 | Tagged: GOP Maine voterID voterfraud

Maine GOP chairman Charlie Webster has received numerous reports of unknown black people showing up at polls and voting.

The Maine Republican Party believes that since these people were not recognized by town officials, they may have come into Maine to vote illegally. The Maine GOP reports that in some localities, there were "dozens" of unknown black people voting.


/that's the joke?


Actually, that one is real. Just look it up, the guy who made the claim is not racist, he has black friends that he plays basketball with.

But the site itself is a joke. It is either someone trying for a cash grab getting it linked on sites like Fark and probably World Nut Daily or someone trying to post some actual satire (think Colbert dialed up to 11).

DGS: Sock Ruh Tease: HindiDiscoMonster: Sock Ruh Tease: CFC is dedicated to providing a conservative alternative to enormously liberal-biased fact checking sites like snopes.com, factcheck.org, and politifact.com.

Should tell you all you need to know. At least politifact is somewhat merciful to Republicans by trying to please both sides.

Snopes???

O.o

Snopes has debunked a lot of rumors about birth certificate fakery, Obama going to Mars as a teen, etc. You know, things Republicans believe.

Clearly snopes is a liberal tool since it doesn't flatly accept the basic truths as shared by the good people at Fox News.


I have been told not to use Snopes. Snopes is a liberal website that slants everything to the left.

I dont know. Remember how a lot of "Blogs" popped up during the election, and politicians were quoting these as sources to prop up their ridiculous campaign promises? And to push the illusion that Romney had the election in the bag?

They might be preparing the faithful for the next level of derp.

Guys, here's the thing. In any election, there will be winners and losers. The shocking thing isn't that you lost. It's that you had no idea you were losing...because being out of touch with reality on a consistent basis is pretty much the definition of insanity. I understand that the consistent reaction is to continue being insane, but, if you do continue with this, we need to remove you from society. This isn't just for our safety; it's for your own safety, too.

Coolmikeskiguy: This is satire, right? This is not a real website. I think you're all being trolled.

"It's seemed that not a single liberal media article referencing this quote is complete without mentioning studies that 25,000 - 50,000 adults die prematurely each year due to a lack of health insurance.

25,000 to 50,000. Are those numbers accurate? Perhaps.

But, remember: there are some 206 million adults living in the United States (source: Wikipedia).

This means that each year, only one in four thousand adults will die prematurely as the result of a lack of health insurance. That's statistically insignificant."

After going to "conservapedia" they can read their "conservative bible" and then find more truthiness at "conservativefactcheck".
