NewportBarGuy: What an asshole.


You forgot the "Christ" in front of "what an asshole." I thought this was an internet rule now. Not to dis on Jesus (I kinda dig the guy), but just because it flows well.

NeverDrunk23: someone changing lanes without signaling


I hate those people with the white hot passions of a thousand suns.

Wait, what were we talking about again?

NeverDrunk23: or a fifty car pileup that all crashed into a fireworks factory, exploded and a meteor crushed them?


That would be awesome!

 Upon further investigation of this thread, it appears that at least - but not limited to - 3 of Fark's most notorious assholes are here. Do I go about my day, or do I try unsuccessfully to demonstrate how how they talk funny and their sh*t's all retarded?

CanisNoir: In the meantime, Obama is in his second term now, Democrats hold a majority in the Senate, I think it's about time that they took some responsibility for the shiatty state of the Economy.


1) of course the dems bear some responsibility
2) you do understand that the GOP house caused our debt to be down graded and have been holding our economy hostage by not voting on bills passed by THAT senate, right?
3) you do understand that a majority in the senate is meaningless given that the GOP minority has filibustered practically everything then dems tried to do right?
4) I wonder how many of those wonder GOP house bills which were never voted on in the senate, were filibustered. LOL

so no .... you are only about 10% right

Half of you people in this goddamn thread are so f*cking stupid it makes my head spin.  I know politics tab threads are bad, but you assholes really take the cake.  You literal mental children can't stay on topic for two posts in a row without resorting to stupid bullshiat ad-hominem attacks on each other.

The fact that people like you make up the voter base is what's really wrong with this country.

Get f*cked.

cameroncrazy1984: I wonder what the GOP excuse will be in 2014 for why the economy is better despite their complete inability to get any of their policies passed.


by blocking everything that the DEMS and Obama wanted to do, the GOP actively prevented things from getting MUCH MUCH MUCH worse!!!

seriously, that will be their position, unless things get worse, and then it will be see, the DEMS farked everything up

sigh

Princess Ryans Knickers: SkinnyHead: tenpoundsofcheese: Let's see.  I wonder if anything else happened in 2007, like the Dems getting control of the House and all that yummy overspending.

And wasn't Obama part of the Democrat controlled senate at the time?  Didn't he vote for Democrat budget resolutions in 2007 and 2008, even though republicans warned them they would damage the economy?  That's the way I remember it.

So you are saying that Bush was totally incompetent and a weak leader unable to stop himself from being forced, forced I tell ya, to sign a bill from Congress?


The Democrats didn't really even have a majority if you take out the Independents. Bush could have blocked anything he wanted to. Weak leader is weak.

Budget resolutions are not signed by the President.  But enough about Bush.  Obama is the President now. Are you saying that Obama is a totally incompetent and weak leader?

Sounds to me like Obama is the not-responsible President.  He's always the first to claim credit for anything that goes right, but can't be blamed for anything that goes wrong, because he's not responsible.  Wouldn't it be better to have a leader who is responsible?

I was TF for a very long time, until some computer disagreement between Fark's automated systems and PayPal's automated system caused Fark to stop accepting that five dollars.  I've often thought about getting around to un-clustering that issue, but then threads like this one pop in to the Politics tab already killed with 99 comments worth of thread-shiatting.  Now I'm on the fence.

What to do, what to do...

Mrtraveler01: Did the Mardi Gras parades start for the day yet?


Today is my full day off. Last Sunday I wasted it watching 34 minutes of stupidity at the Superdome. I do know that the p-rades were moved up in rotation, but I'm sitting right here, about to eat a 3,000 calorie NOLA lunch. Screw the parades today.

I'm still trying to figure out how I can juggle my schedule for my annual quest to get a Zulu coconut.. I've had one, but it was given to me by some chick and not the actual Krewe, rendering it kind of "meh."

If I fail to succeed, I can still look fondly upon having been knocked down by a full cabbage to the head, during St. Pat's. You know, cabbages really don't seem dangerous until some guy with an arm Drew Breeses it to your face.

nice try libs but the Demorats not only were pulling the puppet strings on W after they took away Dick Cheney's magic shotgun, they also had the rare ULTRA majority in Congress, meaning that no matter what happened it is the next Democrat president's fault unless it was good then it was all GOP
Wesley Snipes says always bet on black, well America did and they lost, next time bet red stupid libs.

I should have stopped reading when I hit this statement ``enormously successful Reaganomics``
but I always try to read an article through to see the argument and judge its worth.

Then I hit this bit of massive b*llsh*t  ``I have explained in previous columns that the financial crisis was caused by government, not Wall Street`` and stopped reading. Obviously this Peter Ferrara person is writing about events that happened on Earth2 or else he forgot to put his tinfoil hat on before writing this ``column``

I wonder what Forbes would say if a Republican President was in office and the Dow had crossed 14,000 after the Great Recession?

Greatest President Since Reagan!

But as long as Obama is black and a Democrat, the old white "investor" class -- the only people slow-witted enough to read Forbes -- will always need their commentary pre-chewed and well-digested for their irritable bowels.

Cantor was on TV this morning with his imaginary economics and the Obama is killing us all line. I had to turn it off and go walk the dog. It is too frustrating to watch someone sit there and say we need to decrease taxes, decrease spending and decrease the deficit while not losing any jobs.

I just found out Farb0b0ng0 was responsible for the Scilly Naval Disaster of 1707
www.watch-around.com
Yeah, no shiat. Heavy stuff. And it gets better...

Get this, the 4 ships that sank (killing over one thousand sailors) in that disaster?

HMSs Association, Eagle, Firebrand and ROMNEY! Yes, the HMS Romney was sank over 300 years ago by our own special Mao Tse Bama the Czar maker in chief.

I kid you not, look it up. He really will go to no ends.

What the hell is this guys problem?

I bet Michelle was there in 1707 too, with her... face and.. trying to tell people what to eat. She's ugly, I don't know if you noticed.

NewportBarGuy: Does anyone want to explain to this douche that it usually takes a full fiscal year before any tinkering actually shows up in indicators? That would chop off two years of his 5 year time frame and force him to explain the wonders caused under Bush the Lesser.

Hell, Obama wasn't even President for the first f*cking year of that 5 years. What an asshole.


Sad things is people nod their heads in agreement.  I have a relative that blames Obama for economic collapse; not just the amount of time the recovery has taken, but the collapse itself.  Yes, the one that happened well before most people even knew who he was.

We'll never be able to seriously discuss what goes wrong and what goes right in this country.  There's simply too many disingenuous people and too many people that take pride in stubborn ignorance.

this entire argument is retarded. Until our policy makers have accept the insights of Modern Monetary Theory, and continue to embrace the autistic mainstream macroeconomic policies which fail to appropriately incorporate stock-flow consistency, the economy will continue to stagnate for 99% of the country, while the 1% prosper.

I know this is true. I've done all the work myself.

The market crashed because of the possibility that he might become President someday.

You see, the only way that people get rich is by being super-smart independent-thinker entrepreneur mavericks who work harder than you can possibly imagine and are better than you at everything.  Those are the type of people who could predict what a disaster Obama would be for the country, and they planned accordingly.

Eh, calling out assholes when in not direct response isn't cool. I was timed-out (only a day, but yeah) for calling an infamous poster a jerk but not in response to anything he had actually posted. And I deserved it.
