21) The IMF calculates that to maintain present spending trend the United States will have to nearly double (88 percent increase) all federal taxes to maintain theoretical solvency. - Kevin Williamson

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

Holy shiat some of these are so bad that they are distracting me from making fun of the fact that the author of the "article", John Hawkins, remains a virgin at the age of 36 due to his literal constant flatulence. Thanks to the liberal PC police, he has not been able to find a surrogate fart sex therapist to work with him on this legitimate disability.

When unpacking everything that's wrong with you're saying requires giving a basic civics lesson and it's the "best" quote of 2012, I'm pretty comfortable disregarding anything you and your supporters have to say.

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.

In placing our constitution in the hands of a black robed elite who can divine from thin air powers, rights, and duties neither contemplated nor easily extrapolated from the constitution, our republic has become a kingdom. Our king is Anthony Kennedy. Every argument advanced is advanced with him in mind. On every major issue he is the decisive vote. Put bluntly, the constitutional integrity of our republic has been ceded to one man in the third branch of our federal government. It makes him more powerful than the democratically elected Congress and President. It is not a sign that our system is too partisan. It is a sign that our system is broken in a fundamental way.

By exhibiting a degree of independance Kennedy holds the power. Scalia could learn something from him.

If I'm in the mood for a cocktail, I pay for it myself. If I'm in the market for some sexy-times, then I hit up Rite-Aid on the way home. You want to know why?

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.

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.

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


being this stupid should hurt.


It should cause your dick to fall off.

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.

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.
