How farked up is Maine?

Farked up enough to be the setting of Stephen King novels.
 
2013-02-06 08:03:42 AM
FTFA: LePage also pushed hard for tougher policies related to domestic abuse, an issue important to him because he and his mother were victims of abuse. He promised to sign an executive order on Wednesday creating a task force to look into ways to keep guns out of the hands of domestic abusers

Freakin' libs, trying to keep guns out of people's hands...

/where in TFA did it say the legislature laughed at *anything* LePage said?

Yeah, I missed that part, too.

Some kind of Stephen King reference I'm missing?

Bad  subby. No cookie for you.
 
2013-02-06 08:21:06 AM
Maybe I need to brush up on my reading comprehension, but where the hell does it say anything other than LePage is against domestic violence.

Although if the article is in any way close to representing reality, it looks like the state government is somewhat competent or at least not totally gridlocked.

/From what orifice did subby pull this headline?
 
2013-02-06 08:21:20 AM
Good to know that female-on-male abuse is still funny.

May a bipolar woman with borderline personality disorder find her way into your life, subby, you bag of shiat.
 
2013-02-06 08:22:59 AM
So blatant lies are now cool for FARK headlines? Nice.

/eat a dick, mod who approved this.
 
2013-02-06 08:23:29 AM
None of this thread title is in the article.

I'm less disappointed in the subby than the moderators. Come on, guys. At least skim what you are greenlighting.
 
2013-02-06 08:24:27 AM
What's that, subby was just whoring for a greenlight and the admin fell for it? I am shocked and appalled.

How farked up is fark? Admins approve blatantly inaccurate headlines inspiring users to leave comments about how terrible the site is and resulting in increased ad revenue. To be fair, fark users should know better than to expect ANYTHING resembling effort, integrity, or higher brain functions on the part of the site's admins.

Not that I could watch more than 10 seconds of LePondScum doing anything, but we caught fragments of it while flipping around last night, and I was pleased to see he's stuck to his policy of never giving a speech that doesn't contain the phrase "homeless child".
You'll never hear him express any regret for all of the street urchins he ate to stay alive, though.
 
2013-02-06 08:36:33 AM
Subby is wicked dumb
 
2013-02-06 08:41:49 AM
Unfortunately, domestic violence is widely accepted in Maine, at least it was when I moved out of there 20 years ago.  The northern part of that state has one very screwed up values system.

Widly misleading headline. fark you modmins. fark you subby. And, fark you Ohio. (Y'know, while we're farking things.)

Shame on everybody involved with gettinn this link greenlighted.

i actually watched this, and yah, they do laugh. at a joke. or a bad joke. or a bad speaker being self denigrating. or something.

but it's not like somebody said 'punching biatches!' and the legislature started rolling around in the aisle, or anything.

The correctly-aimed and entirely justifiable rage in this thread warms the cockles of my cold, cold heart.

Are you stupid or evil?

Step 1: Get random non-story to submit
Step 2: Completely make up shiat to put in the headline.
Step 3:  Win award for being a douche.

FTFA: LePage proposed more education options for all students - not just the wealthy -

zOMG SOOOOOOOOCIALISM!

Ah, Fark, you never cease to amaze me with your troll fishing ways.
 
2013-02-06 09:05:48 AM
For every OTHER stupid thing or outright lie the guy has told...  Some of them seemingly to be completely insane, this is really nothing.  From pretending to have a black son, to saying that bull semen was taxed, to saying that BPA wasn't a big deal when he said: "So the worst case is some women may have little beards."   So many other things, this article seems fine.  I guess it is amazing what people will get used to...

2013-02-06 09:10:08 AM
On the other hand, the headline in the article says "LePage pledges to... not cut taxes" while the very first sentence states "Gov. Paul LePage.., promis[ed] not to raise taxes." So I'm guessing, no change to taxes.

This is why my ad blocking software will NEVER make an exception for this site.
 
2013-02-06 09:28:31 AM
Gov. Paul LePage pointed to his own homeless youth to underscore his devotion to educational issues in his State of the State address . . . .

"Finding my next meal and a warm spot to sleep was my goal" as an impoverished youth in Lewiston, LePage said.

Surviving homelessness is admirable.  Surviving it and becoming Governor is awesome.

Headline: LePage pledges to not cut taxes

Wire service article: He promises to not raise taxes

LePage has *twice* when speaking to school children said his greatest fear was teh states' newspapers ,because they're all liars.  At the time, since I know nothing about the guy, I figured he was just being a dick.  But maybe he has a point.

Noticed that too... I can't remember if TotalFark does. I was TFer for about three years (when I still had money to waste on silly crap). Haven't been in a while, though. With the exception of the occasional gift month.

mentula: not restricted to maine of course, but yes i have a colleague (my supervisor in fact) who was a social worker in maine and has horror stories of things that happen in homes in the interior.


I grew up there, and thankfully my parents did not have domestic violence issues,  but it was so common to walk down the street in the summer and hear someone beat the shiat out of their kids and or wife.  Nobody called the cops, nobody seemed to care, and very few people ever got divorced in that town. It rubbed off on the kids in town too bullying was the norm, fights happened all the time 20 kids would show up to watch 2 kids fight after school.  The mindset up there was as long as no weapons were used it was OK.  The town I grew up in is dying and my only emotion was good they get what they deserve.

I'm sure I'd have a lot more time to look at ads if I wasn't doing the moderator's jobs for them. The plea bar is the only Fark ad I've ever not instantly blocked -- I like it that they're reduced to begging for pennies.

LePage is most certainly not a lib. This is the Tea party governor who tried to cover up a depression era painting of the WPA because it showed union workers. Fark: the painting was at the Department of Labor.

It says they need to feed their squirrel, but the truth is, that squirrel died of hunger long ago and Drew eats canned squirrel food. It's all he can afford.
