pxsteel: I have almost nothing in common with anyone in Oregon or New York or Illinois or Maine. I don't think like you do and I don't want to live your lifestyle, I am sure the feeling is mutual.


Just curious where you live that makes that true? What sub-culture are you a part of that separates you so completely from your fellow countrymen? What language do you primarily speak? Does your version of Fark only post comments that originate withing a few miles of your home?

"I didn't see any specific reference like, 'I reach out my hand to the other side of the aisle.'"

If you bite the hand that feeds you, you will starve you fark nuts.

In case you don't want to read it, here's all the conservative commentary on Obama's inauguration:

And seriously, how many "go fark yourself, old man" tweets would John McCain have to get before taking a hint?

"It was a fine speech, but I didn't hear any conciliatory remarks," McCain told the Times. "I didn't see any specific reference like, 'I reach out my hand to the other side of the aisle.'"

Why in the blue bloody f*ck should he have any reason to do that?


To have his hand slapped away with a comment something along the lines of "Get the hell away from me Ni-bong."

DamnYankees: pxsteel: I am getting up about 4AM on Saturday to go Coyote hunting in the morning, I spent about an hour last night cleaning my 243. I will be taking my shotgun as well because there is a pond near where I will be and I will be grilling fresh duck for dinner saturday evening. It is going to be around 82 degrees here on Sunday, so we will most likely be on the lake. I have not been able to water ski in 2 months and it's one of my most favorite things to do.

Are you under the impression there are no people in Oregon or New York or Illinois or Maine who do things like this?

Are you that arrogant to think you're some unique special little flower who has no equals across this country?


He sounds like a patriot......he loves his country, except for the government, economy, culture, and the people.

You're kidding yourself, I hope you realize. You have almost everything in common with people in those states.

Boehner could reach out with an apologetic suicide note and it would ALMOST restore his dignity and honor.

mrshowrules: Cythraul: I didn't watch it. I"m tired of watching him speak. Even though I voted for the guy and agree with a lot of his policies, he irritates me these days.

I like Obama but holy shiat.  When did the inauguration become a 4 day coronation ceremony.  That's all CNN is covering.  Did all the problems in the world get resolved?  Is Syria finished?  Is world hunger done?  4 days x 24 hours of this bullshiat.  Do Americans miss having a royal family that bad?


I'm just relieved we're not talking about guns.

Cythraul: People often talk about their disdain for both parties, and mention of their abstention from the presidential election as a way of protesting. I'd imagine that at that point they become a part of a constituency that candidates can safely ignore.


those are the people you mock, because that's not how you protest the system. Getting involved, letting your voice heard and changing the system for the better is how you protest the system

somedude210: but if you thought that in 08 he was super liberal, well that was your problem because he never came across as anything more than a left-leaning moderate pragmatist

Cythraul: He's no where near as liberal as I had hoped for.


Then you really should have watched yesterday. As I and many others said, it was easily the most liberal speech he's ever given.

Because it's totally not going to get slapped away this time, for reals.
