Trolling/harassing other Fark members: Unfortunately, disagreements can and will happen - but there is no need for them to become personal. Don't harass other users with your posts, parody links/threads, or create accounts to harass them with.
Fark accounts come with a handy Ignore Feature. Use it to filter out those posters whose comments you'd prefer not to read. Keep in mind that discussing who's on your ignore list is the opposite of ignoring. It crosses the line into trolling of other Fark members and may result in a suspension of posting privileges.

Oh. How nice of the troll to tell us that we should not share who we are putting on our ignore list. Everyone has the right to say or hint who is on our ignore list. We can make up our own minds whether to follow or not. It is especially helpful when an old troll comes back with a new alt which happens too often .

The funny thing is, they only care when a Democrat lies to them. Just like they only care about embassy attacks when a Democrat is in office, and only care about human life when it's still in the woman's body and not quite life yet.

Lol 9/10. Subject was in the first paragraph though.

Sure, in the same way that...

I strongly condemn the outrageous attack on our diplomatic facility in Benghazi, which took the lives of four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens. Right now, the American people have the families of those we lost in our thoughts and prayers. They exemplified America's commitment to freedom, justice, and partnership with nations and people around the globe, and stand in stark contrast to those who callously took their lives.

mentions Benghazi. The Declaration of Independence does not mention splitting from England or a new country until the last paragraph, and the Benghazi speech does not mention the act of terror until near the end.

People have, many times. And you either ignore them or accuse them of being in on whatever conspiracy you think is happening.


You missed the "logical" part. All I get is "you want all information released to terrorists?" "Where did she lie, whar?" "Fog of war," "Obama clearly said it was a terrorist attack, you troll." "The CIA altered the talking points!"

Everything contradicts the known facts and the explanations sometimes contradict each other.

As I've said, it's hardly a major scandal, or maybe not a scandal at all. But don't fart in my face and blame the dog, please.

Benghazi was supposed to prove that Obama is Jimmy Carter so Romney=Reagan during the election. Problem is, only Fox newswatchers heard the dogwhistle.

Good. The lying b*tch had it coming. Anyone who would WILLING go around lying for Obama does not deserve any respect nor any consideration for anything. And yes, Benghazi will continue to be a major scandal until we hear ALL that happened, that which the administraton (which is SOOO transparent) has kept secret, so far. Obama is going down for this.

This whole thing has been adorable, I have to admit. Watching people spew points that have been proven false months ago, that mean nothing because Obama's already won. All this time and it's still not a scandal... must be tough.

I do have to ask you something SJ, just because I'm dying to have you input on this. Say the world went bizarro, dogs turned into cats, global warming really is a lie, and somehow what you're saying is true... and Obama didn't call it an act of terror. So... what then? What happens? Do they try impeaching him and fail miserably? Do you get a pony? Really... if you're so very right, what exactly is the juicy outcome if people are swayed to your side... that he didn't call it an act of terror until later?

So... farking... what?

OK, how about this logical part.

Susan Rice was speaking to the U.N., not the general public. The CIA didn't want her to piss off the U.N., for any number of reasons I'm sure will occur to you*. They deliberately made it as fuzzy as possible without coming out and saying "none of your business, shut the fark up".

Does that satisfy your need for logic?

*such as a secret CIA prison in Libya that violated the Geneva Convention, for one.

And they haven't come up with a better "scandal" since the election.

These money laundering bankers that got let off the hook today has pastabilities. I can see the GOP being outraged that the Dems are poaching their campaign fundraising bankers. And they're still pissed at Holder for giving more people guns and getting away with it.

I think before MLK day, we'll have a new scandal, involving Obama letting rich bankers off the hook (when he's not nationalizing their assets like the pinko commie he is) and being soft on terrorist money launderes. What did Obama know and when did he know it?

Which of course would mean criminal charges for the bankers, to start with, but I guarantee Roger Ailes does not put them ahead of his ratings. This scandal could go on for years, because you KNOW this was the tip of the iceberg, thanks to Newt Gingrich "deregulating" these felonious farkers.

I'd put the odds of this happening at 33%, minimum.

Keizer_Ghidorah: Cletus C.: Keizer_Ghidorah: Marcus Aurelius: But politicians LIED to me! They LIED! And here I trusted them, I thought to myself, "A politician would never LIE to me. SURELY not."

My world is now shattered, and lies broken in a million tiny pieces.

The funny thing is, they only care when a Democrat lies to them. Just like they only care about embassy attacks when a Democrat is in office, and only care about human life when it's still in the woman's body and not quite life yet.

Pisses me off whenever a politician lies to me. Don't care for embassy or consulate attacks ever. Love all human life, except maybe some murderers, rapists and reality show stars.

But thanks for the assumptions.

Hey, you're convinced that Obama has some grand conspiracy in place. Not much we can do to help you. You reject everything told to you except what gels with your views.


Dude, I posted exactly what was said and by whom. I clearly showed my opinions are based on those facts.

I have never called this a grand conspiracy. Just annoying. Also annoying that so many people are willing to defend the indefensible. That so many people are willing to rationalize away reality to support their political views.

I like Obama. But unlike so many, I say it when I have a problem with him, his policies or administration. That's OK to do in this country. We fought a war to end the need to take a knee.

FACT: Anything said on Meet the Press or Face the Nation is considered sworn testimony. Anything said that turns out to not be 100% correct results in an automatic Treason conviction and one way ticket to Gitmo.

Silly Jesus: Taylor Mental: If I were Obama I'd nominate Jesse Jackson just to fark with those morons. The last thing I'd do is give them Kerry, or a conservative to appease the jackasses as some are speculating he might. The prez has taken enough shiat off these assholes the last four years. I think most of us would be really happy to see him give them a figurative "fark you" of some kind.

Jesse is too busy with the Zimmerman witch-hunt.


Nope. That's a self-peeling banana these days, thanks to his ambulance chasing lawyer.

I know that Republican officials love their wide stances, but coupons for rentboys seems creepy even for them.

quiotu: Silly Jesus: The Jami Turman Fan Club: Silly Jesus: The Jami Turman Fan Club: Silly Jesus:IN CONGRESS, JULY 4, 1776
The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America
hen in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes ...

Lol 9/10. Subject was in the first paragraph though.

Sure, in the same way that...

I strongly condemn the outrageous attack on our diplomatic facility in Benghazi, which took the lives of four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens. Right now, the American people have the families of those we lost in our thoughts and prayers. They exemplified America's commitment to freedom, justice, and partnership with nations and people around the globe, and stand in stark contrast to those who callously took their lives.

mentions Benghazi. The Declaration of Independence does not mention splitting from England or a new country until the last paragraph, and the Benghazi speech does not mention the act of terror until near the end.

Sorry, mod alt. You lose.

Umm, yeah, I don't even. SMH.

This whole thing has been adorable, I have to admit. Watching people spew points that have been proven false months ago, that mean nothing because Obama's already won. All this time and it's still not a scandal... must be tough.

I do have to ask you something SJ, just because I'm dying to have you input on this. Say the world went bizarro, dogs turned into cats, global warming really is a lie, and somehow what you're saying is true... and Obama didn't call it an act of terror. So... what then? What happens? Do they try impeaching him and fail miserably? Do you get a pony? Really... if you're so very right, what exactly is the j ...


I should ask you the same thing, you and others are fighting tooth and nail to prove that he did call it an act of terror. What are you fighting for?

It wouldn't really change anything at this point, but it's principle. Lying to everyone for political gain ain't cool. Ask Pat Tillman's mother. Ask the mothers of the men killed over there. They are concerned. Isn't that enough?

Fluorescent Testicle: Marcus Aurelius: It's almost as if they're getting paid to promote their own irrational point of view, because there's no other reason I can think of that a person would act like such a fool in front of so many people.

A certain dairy troll who shall remain nameless once admitted that he'd been paid for it, though he could have been lying.


Keep farking that chicken.

halfof33: Keizer_Ghidorah: Yeah, back to ignore for both of you.

That way you will always believe that there was a protest outside the Embassy in Benghazi!

Uncle Obammy told you so. And mean old 16.5 was mean!

! yelling! hee hee!


Man, that's a lot of butthurt to have over a month later.

so that's what? 3 or 4 black people the right have slandered and forced out of their jobs with their lies? this pisses me off that Obama won't fight for his people harder. I'd have every agency at my disposal crawling up Lindsay Graham and John McCain's butt looking for the slightest little bit of dirt to use against them. Take a cue from Johnson,Nixon and J.Edgar. Or Hell take a page out of their playbook and fabricate a scandal out of thin air.

When serving in civvies in Uncle Sam's stead
Rest assured that your service will be stood on its head
You'll be fed to the press
Or exhumed when your dead
The jackals are legion and all must be fed
So go to your fate like a soldier

He's annoyed the hell out of me since he voted (as a senator) to let the telco's wiretapping violations go away. And to think I had donated to his campaign just before that. And THEN still have to vote for the marther farker.

Two party politics is just like one party politics, except that the orbiting parties stabilize each other, so there's no REAL change from the status quo.

Is Benghazi a scandal yet?

No, but the derpers f*cked it for everybody.

I can't even imagine the megatons of fake outrage if Susan Rice were sworn in as SOS.
 
2012-12-13 08:00:00 PM  
so then it's settled,

Benghazi is a scandal for a select few deaf blind non-mutes who refuse to accept evidence & insist on submitting their personal opinions as evidence.
 
2012-12-13 08:00:15 PM  
Benghazi.

WTF?!

She made a diplomatic speech to a bunch of diplomats. Unless she suggested that Hitler didn't go far enough, how could that possibly be 'indefensible'?
