Pants full of macaroni!!: Unlike Mitt, I loathe Sesame Street. It bears primary responsibility for what the Canadian blogger Binky calls the de-monsterization of childhood - the idea that there are no evil monsters out there at the edges of the map, just shaggy creatures who look a little funny and can sometimes be a bit grouchy about it because people prejudge them until they learn to celebrate diversity and help Cranky the Friendly Monster go recycling. That is not unrelated to the infantilization of our society. Marinate three generations of Americans in that pabulum, and it's no surprise you wind up with unprotected diplomats dragged to their deaths from their "safe house" in Benghazi. - Mark Steyn

It's cute how he gets basic facts, like the fact that two of the four died from smoke inhalation within the safe house, and the other two from a mortar hit on the machine gun they were operating, wrong.

The "stay informed" quote is from the guy who proclaimed, proudly, that he couldn't name the president of Uzbeki-beki-stan-stan.

4) The thing we adore about these dog-whistle kerfuffles is that the people who react to the whistle always assume it's intended for somebody else. The whole point of the metaphor is that if you can hear the whistle, you're the dog. - James Taranto

Logic and inference, like watching a man blow a soundless whistle and viewing a dog's reactions, are useless to these people.

32) As a Catholic myself, and a supporter of Catholic institutions, what Sandra Fluke is telling me is that her birth control needs trump the needs of my family. She wants my hard earned dollars to go not to pay for my kids' braces, their college educations or my retirement, but to subsidize her sex life. - Teri Christoph

So you have insurance and suddenly you object to "your" money paying for someone else's car crash/broken window/medical treatment.

Anyone who talks like this should be banned from having any insurance whatsoever.

For that matter, people who talk like this need a refresher course before they're allowed to handle money at all. Once you pay your insurance premium---or buy anything else---it's not your farking money anymore. I am reminded of the occasional derpwad who thinks it's their business what teachers do with their paychecks.

DROxINxTHExWIND: 36) Repeatedly asking for government help undermines the foundations of society by destroying initiative and responsibility. It is also a fatal blow to efficiency and corrupts the political process. When everyone gets something for nothing, soon no one will have anything, because no one will be producing anything. - Charles Koch

I stopped reading, there.


Paying workers starving wages forces the population to turn to the government to meet their basic needs. This is the true result of conservative policies and why government grows as a result of them.

Spanky_McFarksalot: Dr Dreidel: Did you not read? I started by saying it was a Limbaugh quote. The bullshiattiness is implied.

do you not read? I was referring to the comment you posted.


Wait, what? Are we sarcasming past each other?

Limbaugh is full of shiat. The quoted passage is a pile of un-self-aware bullshiat, from the purest source yet discovered.

// I think the fact that the whole thing was a quote may have gone unnoticed due to stray quotation marks

John Hawkins struggles awake at 3am, breathing heavily and in a cold sweat. Before he slips back into an uneasy rest, he recalls his dreams of Pam Gellar's hot farty blasts upon his willing tongue.

Super Chronic: Wait, is that the same Kyle Smith who does film reviews for the NY Post?

Damn, it is. Had no idea he was also a right-wing commentator. I've read plenty of his reviews via rottentomatoes and have found him to be one of the more reliable critics. Who knew.


You're suprised a Rupert Murdoch owned paper employs a right-wing commentator?

1) If government is as wonderful as Obama says it is, why doesn't he ask us to pay what it costs? Why doesn't he raise the price - taxes - to a point where the deficit is zero? - Kyle Smith

1. The president can't raise taxes - only Congress can
2. You're a simplistic farkwad.

mrshowrules: OK. So? Double taxes. You'd still be paying half as much as you were in the 1950's.


In the 1950s there were tax loopholes you could drive a big rig through with lots of room to spare. No one paid those highly inflated tax rates. When they lowered the tax rate they also closed most of those loopholes.

The "de-monsterization of childhood" is pure awesome conservative double think.

Since studies show conservatives are biologically wired to respond more strongly to fear stimuli than are moderates or liberals, the solution (to conservatives) is not to educate themselves so that they can use reasoning to determine which of their fears are actually sound. Instead, they want to "monsterize childhood" so that children can be trained to be as scared of their own shadow as they are, thus ensuring a continuing legacy of conservatives. Never mind that said legacy is founded upon a fairly obvious mental defect.

If you doubled Federal revenue per capita, you would be no higher than 1970 and would still be much lower than the 1950's.

Forget rates, deductions and loopholes. The quote was about an 88% revenue increase requirement. Not a big deal if if you expected his stupid premise which is false because spending is reducing and the economy is growing.

JadedRaverLA: The "de-monsterization of childhood" is pure awesome conservative double think.


On the other hand, there is a valid point lurking in this derpy quote.

We do tend to teach kids that "bad guys" are misunderstood, or that they become bad as a product of social ostracism, that monsters just want to play baseball with you, and that everyone will get along if instead we reach out with understanding. I call this the My Little Pony thesis, and remember hearing this sentiment over and over after the Virginia Tech shooting, and later after the shooting in Binghamton, NY.

This is, however, BS: everything we know about psychopaths suggest that they get that way early in life---they do not turn bad because other college students ostracize them---and do not become cured if you are nice to them. If you have a budding psychopath on your block, it's terrible advice to tell your kids to "reach out to him with understanding." That kid wants to push your kid into traffic.
