"What I was basically saying and if anyone was offended, I apologize to you. What I was basically saying is there is no group. I wasn't equating those things, I don't think they're equal. If you ask me for an apple and I give you an orange you would say, that's not an orange. And I say, that's a banana. And that's not an apple either. Or a peach, that's not an apple, either. It doesn't mean that I'm equating the banana and the orange and the peach. In the same way I'm not equating those things."

SuperNinjaToad: If you ask me for an apple and I give you an orange you would say, that's not an orange.

I am still trying to decipher this profound yet complex axiom.

Why would you say an orange that I just gave you is not an orange even if you asked for an apple? and how would a non orange orange become a peach afterward even though it may have been originally an apple all along? this is deep folks deep!!


Dr. Ben Carson has a lot to teach us about how to defend yourself from fresh fruit. What if a gay guy comes at you with a crate of raspberries?

gilgigamesh: The_Sponge: I like turtles.

Well pretty soon you'll be able to marry one. Congrats. I am sure you'll be very happy together.

No matter how they tossed the dice, it had to be. Turtles.

KrispyKritter: Dr clearly stated his opinion and was not making comparisons as butt hurt folks interpret in their deluded minds. Too farking bad his opinion is not your own. Everybody gets to speak their mind in america until the government makes that illegal.


No one here is or want to deny him the right to speak his "mind".
We just reserve the right to laugh and call him a f*cking moron homophobe when he does so.
That's my opinion.

Here's a little tidbit you should have learned earlier in life: All opinions are not equally valid.

What, you actually think that opinions should never be questioned?

When you put an opinion out in the public sphere, it will be read, poked, tested as to it's veracity, logic and relativity, examined, debated and judged. If you can't handle that, keep your howling screamer shut.

Pretty much every Republican I know has assured me at one time or another that Obama only got elected president because he's black. I guess if you buy into that line of thinking you can convince yourself that any black person willing to parrot right wing talking points will be the next big savior of the Republican Party.

kxs401: GAT_00: I'm surprised conservatives have a problem with what he said.

The problem isn't with the content of what he said, it was that he said it when the GOP is trying to rebrand itself.

D'aww.

Are kittens crunchy when you eat them despite their soft, furry shell?

These are the questions the bastard part of my brain demand answers to every day.

Uh, they're tender all the way through, it's only the little bones that are crunchy.

/these are the kinda questions that kept me outta Harvard -- George Carlin

Which leads to my next question.

And how do you know this?

/hugs kittypie just because her crazy kitty ass is one of my favorited posters here and I love it so blargh.


I have been known to poke them in order to discover their composition.

Very very carefully, mind you. They do squeak a bit when poked.

So we're now up to "two days running"...

I said it would take a week for you to get around to whining about how hateful Republicans were after one of your own went on a bigoted little tirade to the cheer and adoration of more than a few.

It took you two days, and now we're on day three and you're doing it again. I should really learn to stop underestimating you people.

Incidentally that feeling of validation you have for catching this guy saying something unpopular in no way changes the fact that he's been handing you your rears on a silver platter on most of what you believe in.

Or really, I could just behave like you do when somebody is critical of Obama... You're obviously just a bunch of racists trying to keep a well spoken and intelligent black man down.

Oh and we haven't forgotten how "nicely" you treated the black actress for supporting Romney as the good and open minded liberals spewed racist hate speech at her.

But Carson said something bad, you go on, feel good about yourselves.

"My thoughts are that marriage is between a man and a woman. It's a well-established, fundamental pillar of society and no group, be they gays, be they NAMBLA, be they people who believe in bestiality-it doesn't matter what they are-they don't get to change the definition."

Yeah, that's equating.

Good on the Johns Hopkins students and faculty for raising a stink about his invite to speak at commencement.

I knew this guy was going to crash and burn after watching the prayer breakfast speech.  All the right winger got wet panties about the speech, but clearly didn't watch it.  They just thought it was neat he was "sticking it" to Obama (which he wasn't).  His entire speech was extreme right wing talking points.  Nothing new, nothing helpful.  The speech wasn't even particularly well delivered.

For the last time, it's not the messaging, it's the message.  Hating gays, punishing poor people/minorities and corporatism are not where the majority of american's sit ideologically at the moment.

error 303: One Cuil = One level of abstraction away from the reality of a situation.
Example: You ask me for a Hamburger.
1 Cuil: if you asked me for a hamburger, and I gave you a raccoon.
2 Cuils: If you asked me for a hamburger, but it turns out I don't really exist. Where I was originally standing, a picture of a hamburger rests on the ground.
3 Cuils: You awake as a hamburger. You start screaming only to have special sauce fly from your lips. The world is in sepia.
4 Cuils: Why are we speaking German? A mime cries softly as he cradles a young cow. Your grandfather stares at you as the cow falls apart into patties. You look down only to see me with pickles for eyes, I am singing the song that gives birth to the universe.
5 Cuils: You ask for a hamburger, I give you a hamburger. You raise it to your lips and take a bite. Your eye twitches involuntarily. Across the street a father of three falls down the stairs. You swallow and look down at the hamburger in your hands. I give you a hamburger. You swallow and look down at the hamburger in your hands. You cannot swallow. There are children at the top of the stairs. A pickle shifts uneasily under the bun. I give you a hamburger. You look at my face, and I am pleading with you. The children are crying now. You raise the hamburger to your lips, tears stream down your face as you take a bite. I give you a hamburger. You are on your knees. You plead with me to go across the street. I hear only children's laughter. I give you a hamburger. You are screaming as you fall down the stairs. I am your child. You cannot see anything. You take a bite of the hamburger. The concrete rushes up to meet you. You awake with a start in your own bed. Your eye twitches involuntarily. I give you a hamburger. As you kill me, I do not make a sound. I give you a hamburger.
