whistleridge: RedTank: Mike_LowELL: This is absolutely disgusting.  United States orders an attack on its own consulate and nobody cares.  Easily the biggest scandal of my lifetime.

Why?

Because apparently he has been alive 6 months. That's prodigious of you, to be typing and politically active at such a young age, RT. Normally people don't go full right wing until at least 3rd grade.


Well, I figure that Mike is trolling as he even admits to frequently doing (or being labled as such) in his profile. So I figured that I would have him explain his position so I could in turn troll him.

You know.... That old thing.

It's not so much trolling as it is performance art... he's been kind of phoning it in lately, but sometimes you get a snippet of epicness.

Are brain clots contagious? Hillary seems to have recovered from hers, but others may still need treatment.


What if their brains are just one big clot? Treatment could kill them.

The hearings were 100% political theater and they had their funny moments. Rand Paul's declaration about what he would do if he were President was pure comedy genius. It ranked right up there with Newt's moon base proposal for pure absurdity. And Ron Johnson's performance was brilliant; all it lacked was a prat fall and a pie fight.

Giltric is concerned about the rights of criminals who violate their probation.

The fraudster-turned-filmmaker, Mark Basseley Youssef, appeared in federal court in Los Angeles and admitted he violated his probation in a 2010 bank fraud case when he used aliases against court orders and lied to his probation officer.

s1ugg0: The money was found.

Because god forbid anyone actually uses google for something besides porn

Oh wow, they found 6.6 billion. Awesome, thanks for the links. Do you have an article where they found the other 2.1 billion? Do you remember the Republican outrage at all that missing money.

Thats like the budget for one day of abortions at Planned Parenthood!

Also any updates on Rumsfeld missing 2.3 trillion?

On Sept. 10, Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld declared war. Not on foreign terrorists, "the adversary's closer to home. It's the Pentagon bureaucracy," he said.

"According to some estimates we cannot track $2.3 trillion in transactions," Rumsfeld admitted.
Link

His own article also shows that all we did was transfer the money to the Central Bank of Iraq and then leave it up to them to disperse the money properly. Which the same damn article says that they didn't do in repeated cases.


You being a Republican, from a scale of 1 to Benghazi how much of a scandal was the missing and then found money for you?
 
2013-01-25 01:21:18 PM
This is what I am talking about.  One person claims I am "phoning it in", and another claims he is going to "troll me back", whatever "trolling" is.  Meanwhile, numerous people in this thread claim that they "love me" and they would like to "father my children".  You are not fooling me.  If you do not have a four-year college degree and are not willing to work for free, then you are not getting a job in one of my factories.  That's what has happened in this country.  People expect a salary for their services and it is disgusting.  This is why Benghazi is not a scandal yet.  Why would a liberal speak out against the government when they are making 7.15 for every hour that they work?  These people are rolling money, and meanwhile, Al Qaeda is rolling over our interests in the Middle East.  I give it a week before the country falls.  Ridiculous.

It is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again, Senator.

And the administration failed because they were out chasing a lie about the video.

Is this a hypothetical? I was arguing YOUR point. Zeb's article was the one that was flaky on his own point.

But, putting myself in the shoes of a Republican, I'd have to say that the Iraq war paid for itself and freed a people that were just begging for freedom, so it was a -543 potatoes on the scandal scale.

The hell with this talk about money being not a scandal.

What is NOT a scandal to a Republican:
www.defenseindustrydaily.com

Let's review.

US citzens (otherwise known as "soldiers") are sent halfway around the world into a known war zone to do a job. In the course of that job, the enemy lobs a mortar shell into their vehicle, killing them. NOT a scandal. It happens dozens more times. STILL not a scandal. One of their buddies biatches to the SecDef on open mic night that they need more armor that can resist mortar shells, and gets back the answer "Well, we go to war with the army we have not the army we want or might have later"-STILL not a scandal. But that complaint is taken to heart, resulting in...removing the remaining soldiers and firing the people who sent them in without a proper hazard analysis? Don't be silly. Resulting in the construction of horrifically expensive sixteen-ton armored personnel carriers. Yeah, that's the stuff.

US citizens (otherwise known as "ambassadors", aka "important people") are sent halfway around the world into a known war zone to do a job. In the course of that job, the enemy lobs a mortar shell into their building, killing them. SCANDAL IMPEACH SCANDAL NEVER MIND FIXING THE PROBLEM JUST IMPEACH NOW

ArcadianRefugee: I could swear 16.5 wasn't this deranged when I started on Fark back in '04. I keep thinking I'm confusing him with someone else, but I dunno.


You know, it's hard to say. I do recognize his handle from way back, but he never crossed the threshold of being anything more than just background noise until recently for me. The only members of the GOP brigade I really remember and have any opinion about are a) those that are reasonable enough to have a discussion with and b) those members that are so out there I get some entertainment value out of their mindless ranting. It's only the last few months that I've really been grouping 16.5 in that crowd.

So, I guess yeah, he probably is getting worse. I'm not sure if it's purposeful or a natural reaction of your world view getting unskewed and then reskewed by reality.

Curiously, the only ones who may pay for the fiasco at Benghazi are Hillary and John Brennan.

While her party is cheering her comments on now, I suspect that she will get eviscerated during the primaries. One can simply not permit a ridiculous statement

"Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided they'd go kill some Americans. What difference does it make"
