There's a lot of stuff in this article that reads like liberal satire of conservatives.

But legal cigarette smoking is now seen as a corporate-sponsored, uncool, and dirty habit that leads to long-term health costs for society at large - in a way homegrown, hip, and mostly illegal pot smoking apparently does not.

I hear they actually believe that there's a man in the sky who watches over everything they do, and if they act according to some half-baked, self-serving set of rules the invisible sky man gave to another man who didn't know how to ask for directions, when they die they will go to a magical sky land and live on clouds with winged midgets who play harps and get everything they ever wanted. But, if they act in a manner contrary to the sky man's rules, they will go to a dark, smelly place full of fire, and be sodomized with hot pokers by by a red guy with a pointy tail.

And don't get me started on how they also believe sky man had a son who became a zombie.

FTA: "A boss who calls an employee "honey" might face accusations of fostering a hostile work environment, yet a television producer whose program shows an 18-year-old having sex does not. "

I don't even know how a boss being inappropriate is somehow compared to an 18-year-old (legal adult, over age of consent) having sex on TV.  That one is strange.

: "But if vast numbers of girls younger than 16 need after-sex options to prevent unwanted pregnancies, why isn't there a flood of statutory-rape charges being lodged against older teenagers for having consensual relations with younger girls?"

Because there's a chance these girls are having sex with boys their own ages? Just for starters....

And the strangest of them all is a bit long, but he's lamenting the days when  leaders could openly have affairs (with women of all ages) and nobody cared.

Someone forgot to take his medicine today.

whereas pistols cause over most of the gun deaths in america(one could probably say that handguns on a daily to weekly basis kill more people than assault weapons have, domestically speaking, in the last 10-20 years.).

oh and of all the gun deaths in america, the majority of them are self-inflicted, and overwhelmingly those are deliberate.

so no, the problem isn't really assault weapons. yes, those are *A* problem, but not the bigger problem.

the bigger problem is multi-fold. easy access to handguns, far easier than it is to get mental health care, it seems.
a culture where violence, both against yourself and others, isn't just an 'ok' thing, but in so many ways is actively encouraged.
and people who obfuscate the issue either by saying 'oh there's not a problem' or screaming about a series of isolated incidents that could have happened regardless.

A boss who calls an employee "honey" might face accusations of fostering a hostile work environment, yet a television producer whose program shows an 18-year-old having sex does not. Many colleges offer courses on lurid themes from masturbation to prostitution, even as campus sexual-harassment suits over hurtful language are at an all-time high.

Young people are learning that masturbation is ok but we can't even sexually harass our secretaries! What kind of madness is this?!

Oh, it's worse:  they can't disobey their parents or think of the world on its own terms.  It has to be through the lens of some sad ideology that represses everybody with the vague promise of a reward that can never be refuted:  if you live your life according to this sad religion, you can't complain if you get paradise or not.  It's a sucker's game that's not even faith, but coercion:  it's not like you have a real choice according to them.

And what does this promise?  Unfulfilled lives.  No sexual release.  No ability to do whatever you want, but boast about it like you do.  To treat people like objects and be feared (not respected, but feared) and allow this rage and bitterness to foster into making others feel exactly the same way.  Look at the fixation on sex these people have, and then realize that no real person is this fixated on sex unless they're so repressed that this comes out throughout their lives and in every aspect.

I would pity them, but I laugh.  These sad motherfarkers have never lived.  They're waiting to die so they can be free and do whatever they want.  It's the biggest con game in the world and nobody with a reasonable mind would bet on it unless they were forced into it in a time of weakness.  And as we can see, it leaves its victims ready to fall for anything at all.

In the tidal wave of derp, there were a few droplets of truth.

1) When society can't emotionally handle larger problems, it focuses on feel-good small problems to solve.

2) Dr. Gosnell's crimes are much more heinous than Michael Vick's, yet the media vilified Vick to a much greater degree.  Vick is a celebrity, but still - this is bad.

3) Society is too obsessed with celebrities, in general.  Why do we care who public officials are sleeping with?  As long as their jobs aren't compromised, they should be left alone.

4) People are scared to death to have a national conversation on race.

I'm still struggling with this paragraph:

A federal judge in New York recently ruled that the so-called morning-after birth-control pill must be made available to all "women" regardless of age or parental consent, and without a prescription. The judge determined that it was unfair for those under 16 to be denied access to such emergency contraceptives. But if vast numbers of girls younger than 16 need after-sex options to prevent unwanted pregnancies, why isn't there a flood of statutory-rape charges being lodged against older teenagers for having consensual relations with younger girls?

As far as I can tell, he believes that sperm only becomes active on a man's 18th birthday, because otherwise this paragraph makes absolutely no farking sense.

John Buck 41: TerminalEchoes: Um, Sandra Fluke DID want tax payer-funded birth control.

Perhaps I can help...

"A friend of mine, for example, has polycystic ovarian syndrome

<http://www.nichd.nih.gov/health/topics/Polycystic_Ovary_Syndrome.c fm>;;,

and she has to take prescription birth control to stop cysts from

growing on her ovaries. Her prescription is technically covered by

Georgetown's insurance because it's not intended to prevent pregnancy.


"Unfortunately, under many religious institutions and insurance plans,

it wouldn't be. There would be no exception for other medical needs. And

under Sen. Blunt's amendment, Sen. Rubio's bill or Rep. Fortenberry's

bill there's no requirement that such an exception be made for these

medical needs.


"When this exception does exist, these exceptions don't accomplish their

well-intended goals because when you let university administrators or

other employers rather than women and their doctors dictate whose

medical needs are legitimate and whose are not, women's health takes a

back seat to a bureaucracy focused on policing her body.


"In 65% of the cases at our school, our female students were

interrogated by insurance representatives and university medical staff

about why they needed prescription and whether they were lying about

their symptoms.


"For my friend and 20% of the women in her situation, she never got the

insurance company to cover her prescription. Despite verifications of

her illness from her doctor, her claim was denied repeatedly on the

assumption that she really wanted birth control to prevent pregnancy.


She's gay. So clearly polycystic ovarian syndrome was a much more urgent

concern than accidental pregnancy for her.


"After months paying over $100 out-of-pocket, she just couldn't afford

her medication anymore, and she had to stop taking it."

THIS. She wasn't arguing for universal coverage--she was arguing that if you pay for it, you should get it WITHOUT having your boss sign a permission slip like it's frickin' high school and you want Mommy to let you go to the prom. A goal which I personally find a good one.

I read much of what she said before Congress. While she did cite certain debilitating female-specific conditions that require birth control to regulate (which I'm all for, for the record), Sanda herself didn't claim to have any such conditions. To me, she was bemoaning the fact that she had to shell out three thousand dollars for her own birth control. That's the only part I have issue with.

As opposed to it being covered on prescription like... thousands of other pills or medicines. She wasn't asking for others to pay for it. She wanted it covered on her insurance. That she was paying for.

Never mind that she was primarily making an argument that there was a non-pregnancy usage to the pill which was being blocked.

"A friend of mine, for example, has polycystic ovarian syndrome

<http://www.nichd.nih.gov/health/topics/Polycystic_Ovary_Syndrome.c fm>;;,

and she has to take prescription birth control to stop cysts from

growing on her ovaries. Her prescription is technically covered by

Georgetown's insurance because it's not intended to prevent pregnancy.


"Unfortunately, under many religious institutions and insurance plans,

it wouldn't be. There would be no exception for other medical needs. And

under Sen. Blunt's amendment, Sen. Rubio's bill or Rep. Fortenberry's

bill there's no requirement that such an exception be made for these

medical needs.


"When this exception does exist, these exceptions don't accomplish their

well-intended goals because when you let university administrators or

other employers rather than women and their doctors dictate whose

medical needs are legitimate and whose are not, women's health takes a

back seat to a bureaucracy focused on policing her body.


"In 65% of the cases at our school, our female students were

interrogated by insurance representatives and university medical staff

about why they needed prescription and whether they were lying about

their symptoms.


"For my friend and 20% of the women in her situation, she never got the

insurance company to cover her prescription. Despite verifications of

her illness from her doctor, her claim was denied repeatedly on the

assumption that she really wanted birth control to prevent pregnancy.

She's gay. So clearly polycystic ovarian syndrome was a much more urgent

concern than accidental pregnancy for her.



"After months paying over $100 out-of-pocket, she just couldn't afford

her medication anymore, and she had to stop taking it."

So what you're saying is that Sandra Fluke was unqualified to testify as to the non-contraceptive uses of certain medication because she does not have the conditions treatable by that medicine?

Sorry, but being unable to empathize with others and being dicks to them, only to turn around and change your stance once you yourself are affected is almost entirely a conservative domain.

That's possible, but it still has nothing to do with her testimony about Georgetown's approval process for allowing students to use their school insurance to pay for birth control.

/Fun fact:  Georgetown employees have no problem using their insurance to cover birth control.  It's only a matter of conscience when their students want to use their insurance to cover birth control.

phritz: I'm still struggling with this paragraph:

A federal judge in New York recently ruled that the so-called morning-after birth-control pill must be made available to all "women" regardless of age or parental consent, and without a prescription. The judge determined that it was unfair for those under 16 to be denied access to such emergency contraceptives. But if vast numbers of girls younger than 16 need after-sex options to prevent unwanted pregnancies, why isn't there a flood of statutory-rape charges being lodged against older teenagers for having consensual relations with younger girls?

As far as I can tell, he believes that sperm only becomes active on a man's 18th birthday, because otherwise this paragraph makes absolutely no farking sense.


He means that every time any girl under sixteen has sex, the boys they have sex with should be charged with statutory rape. This same man goes on to complain how hard the world is for men.

Pffftt!!!  "Science?" That atheist fraud tells me that we move in circles around the sun, and have been doing so for longer than 6000 years...I don't know about you, but I didn't come out of no monkey's butt!  Halleluiah!!


Of course I didn't come out of a monkey's butt, monkeys like all animals are heterosexual and therefore do not engage in anal sex. If a penis doesn't go in a butt then there is no way for semen and a baby to get into the butt.

randomjsa: Sandra Fluke wanted taxpayer-funded birth control

Except for the part where people actually believe that because its true I guess. She is after all one of the good socialized medicine liberals. Knowingly and willingly going to a college that you know doesn't provide birth control as part of its health coverage then whining about it doesn't make you a hero by the way. I know you're still upset that people on the right treated her the same way people on the left routinely treat conservative women, but you'll get over it.

/looks back at Monday's bombing thread

So what's this about people saying or believing stupid thing that in no way reflect reality? You're 0 - 2 on the 'crazy right wing' thing by the way. Still waiting for the apology and statement retractions on the Giffords shooting, now you have the Boston Marathon bombing to work on as well.


Remember, conservatives have been the ones priding themselves on how they make their arguments based on logic and reason rather than libs who make it based on emotion.

Having said that, <b>randomjsa</b> has a feeling that Sandra Fluke supports socialized medicine so suck it, libs.

You are correct. A classroom full of "dead kids" is much more acceptable when the children are killed with use of a rifle that does not feature a pistol grip, collapsing stock or threaded barrel.

/Or, perhaps, the problem is mentally unstable individuals having access to weapons and not the cosmetic appearance of the weapons to which they have access

Yep, cause then pot sales would be dominated by the evil corporations (tobacco companies, likely, since they already have the means to roll out packs of joints almost instantaneously), setting the price low enough to make it a losing business for mom and pop growers.

I know a few hippies still deluded enough to think weed will remain a homegrown industry once it's legalized.

They command the House because 2010 was the teabagger, anti-Obama revolution that put a lot conservative nuts into state office, where they proceeded to gerrymander the shiat out of their districts since it was a census year. They command the Senate because the Democrats refuse to address filibuster reform, and Republicans are the kids in the back of the car laughing and pulling the emergency brake as hard and as often as they can.

I'd really like to see the evidence that shows that Republicans' ideology dominates because of gerrymandering.

No, it's much more f*cked up than that. This country leans center-right, and although Obama has done some wonderful attempts at making a dent in the system, the fact is this country is still solid anti-labor, pro-military strikes, and morally more close to the 1950s than the present day. There is still some really evil greedy shiat driving this country. Albeit into the ground, but driving it no matter who we vote for.

The idea of one company getting an exclusive deal might be an anti-trust violation. I'm not sure, but I don't think a company can be told they cannot sell a product that is legal, so long as they meet regulations for it.

Mom and pop growers, however, could fall under the same legal problems as moonshiners, since they'd likely be skirting the inevitable tax on weed like what we have with alcohol and tobacco.

I am skeptical of the idea that most of the reps and senators believe the derp, they are simply selling a product to a receptive audience who has telegraphed their gull^H^H^H^Hinterest in a product - the same way electronics places know that anyone who signs up for the in-house financing is 100% going to buy the extended warranty, because they have already indicated they can't afford to replace whatever they're buying.

It took 30 years in the political wilderness for the democrats to learn an aversion to public idiocy. What majorities the GOP has exist due to their successful shift from national politics to state/local agendas, and very hard work in carving up districts. Efforts to minimize the impact of minority votes ("suppression" is a strong word and sometimes overused) are past the point of diminishing returns, and arguably worked  against them in '12.

I *like* interesting elections. (I like it best when my candidate wins, of course, but I really wish for more competitive elections. Landslides in either direction mean that both parties don't have to worry about actually working)

That instead of introspection and reflection you choose to lash out because you think that's the only way to get your way. No one's suggesting passivity. But really, in the last thirty years of hyper-partisanship what has it gotten you? Other than trading away your civil rights, trippling then doubling the national debt, and sacrificing everything you used to believe in for a "win"? All or nothing won't ever cut it. Ever.

stoli n coke: Alphax: stoli n coke: Lee Jackson Beauregard: FTFA: [L]egal cigarette smoking is now seen as a corporate-sponsored, uncool, and dirty habit that leads to long-term health costs for society at large - in a way homegrown, hip, and mostly illegal pot smoking apparently does not.

Looks like if the goose-steppers really want the Smelly Hippies to stop smoking weed, they should legalize it.


Yep, cause then pot sales would be dominated by the evil corporations (tobacco companies, likely, since they already have the means to roll out packs of joints almost instantaneously), setting the price low enough to make it a losing business for mom and pop growers.

I know a few hippies still deluded enough to think weed will remain a homegrown industry once it's legalized.

I suspect that if that happened, one tobacco company would get an exclusive deal, and 'mom and pop growers' get raided for violating the deal.  Cause that's the corporate way.


The idea of one company getting an exclusive deal might be an anti-trust violation. I'm not sure, but I don't think a company can be told they cannot sell a product that is legal, so long as they meet regulations for it.

Mom and pop growers, however, could fall under the same legal problems as moonshiners, since they'd likely be skirting the inevitable tax on weed like what we have with alcohol and tobacco.


And that would be exactly how tobacco companies force the mom & pop's out of business.  They'd hire some lobbyists that would institute 'safety' regulations for manufacture & sale of marijuana products.  Something as simple as saying they have to be in a certain type of packaging like cigarettes might be enough since it would then require small companies to not only produce marijuana but their own packages as well.

As for growers?  Well, it's been legal to grow your own tobacco for centuries.  But almost no one does it without the approval of Big Tobacco.  The companies intentionally limit the supply by telling farmers that if they grow more than they're allowed then they'll end up on a blacklist and the companies'll never buy so much as a single leaf from that farmer again.

I am so sick of this farking argument. When an assault style weapon is used to kill people the result is farking horrific. AW's only accounting for %1 of gun deaths does not make it any better when we are talking about classrooms full of dead kids.


The problem with TFA's argument is that it invites tighter control of the handguns that cause most gun deaths.  "OK, fine, let's do something more significant."

The problem with your argument is that every death by gunshot is horrific.

He ran an c ad late in the election practically insulting Missouri voters over that, giving a definition of "legitimate" in this deliberately condescending, almost sarcastic tone. I hadn't seen any polls for awhile when I first saw it, but when I did, I figured he knew he was sunk, and was just venting his frustration.

There was an Onion article about that in 2004, I think. The premise being that Bush and Kerry finally just released ads directly insulting voters. Life imitates art.

I'm tired of hearing about force fed Guantanamo inmates who have been detained for 11 years with no charges. I'm tired of hearing about record profits while we face record poverty. We've lost sight of what it means to be American and how we can help each other, not just tearing each other down in a game of "one-upsmanship". Can we go back to doing good for each other? I'm just burnt out on all the infighting and watching it do nothing but destroy us. It's a game of attrition and I no longer have the stomach for it.

Ya know what? Yeah! Let's do it! All that partisan fighting is now in the past. "Inequality" is just a buzzword people throw around to feel important.  Things are gonna be so different now that we're deciding to stop having fundamental disagreements about how our country is supposed to run.

"Stop fighting!" It's so simple, yet so complex.

Fighting is now over in this world and we couldn't have done it without you and your revolutionary ideas.


The first step is agreeing to look out for every person's health and happiness.

Ok, anti-partisans, how do we accomplish this? Don't forget, raising taxes is partisan!

enderthexenocide: it seems like we're trying to make marijuana legal at the same time that we're trying to shame all cigarette smokers into quitting, which makes no sense.


It makes sense if you're evaluating the two on demonstrated harms. Cigarettes are massive disease catalysts in several areas of health. They contribute massively to cancer, heart disease, and strokes, just to name the three most prominent examples. Marijuana may or may not have similar bad effects, but to my knowledge anyway, they haven't been demonstrated. Having spent years around marijuana smokers when I was younger, my impression was that it was less addictive than tobacco, and less dangerous to others than alcohol.

Just because I think marijuana should be socially accepted doesn't mean I have to think crack cocaine should be socially accepted too. Having established that I may principally distinguish based on harmfulness, the question is, "are cigarettes sufficiently harmful to warrant action against, if my baseline is marijuana?"

Virginia is for extraordinary rendition: It's not about both sides being bad. It's about unifying the people in this country and saying "You're American? Me too! High five! Let's talk about what this country needs, and how to accomplish that, like adults".


Uh, yeah, that ship sailed around the time Bill O'Reilly called anti-war protestors "bad Americans" and won the hearts and minds of Republican voters as a result.  Since then it's only gotten worse, with Republican voters refusing to recognize and threatening armed revolt against a democratically-elected president, bringing the legislative process to a standstill, supporting voter-suppression schemes, taking away reproductive rights in the states, blocking badly-needed immigration reform, supporting the privatization of just about every role government plays in society, etc., etc. etc.

I have no problem saying that Republicans are not my fellow-countrymen.  I don't really care which side wants to claim the label of "(real) American" -they can have it if they really want it.  As far as I'm concerned, they are a side to be defeated and marginalized for the greater good.  We liberals have nothing worthwhile in common with Republicans.

Having spent years as a bartender and bouncer, I can testify that I've been insulted, threatened, physically accosted, broken up dozens of fights, and stopped a few sexual assaults on female patrons by those who had consumed too much alcohol (and in several instances, "too much" constituted as little as 2-3 drinks).

I've also been around dozens of congregated people who were smoking pot without any associated problems coming anywhere close to those of the drinking group.

Maybe someone must observe an grown man, who they know to be intelligent and accomplished, piss his pants and have absolutely no awareness of that fact because he had a couple of drinks too many for them to understand that Pot isn't nearly so bad in comparison.*

*And I say this as a non-pot smoker.

Except for the part where people actually believe that because its true I guess. She is after all one of the good socialized medicine liberals. Knowingly and willingly going to a college that you know doesn't provide birth control as part of its health coverage then whining about it doesn't make you a hero by the way. I know you're still upset that people on the right treated her the same way people on the left routinely treat conservative women, but you'll get over it.

/looks back at Monday's bombing thread

So what's this about people saying or believing stupid thing that in no way reflect reality? You're 0 - 2 on the 'crazy right wing' thing by the way. Still waiting for the apology and statement retractions on the Giffords shooting, now you have the Boston Marathon bombing to work on as well.

Gyrfalcon: Lionel Mandrake: Was there a point to all that?

I'm not sure. I think it had something to do with the author not understanding how the law is different from what people personally like.


Or, more simply, not understanding that different things are different.

enderthexenocide: the media did go completely apeshiat over rush's comments about sandra fluke, but they are mostly ignoring the kermit gosnell case


CNN.com:  45 articles

NBCNews.com: 508 search results (articles, images, etc)

abcnews: 49 articles

cbsnews: 35 articles

Associated Press, from Oct - Dec 2011 when the story first broke: 8 wire service stories

Pick a major national news source.  Go on, pick one.  WaPo, LA Times, NYT, whatever. Do a search and see how many results you get.

Then come back and tell me how the media ignored this story.

stoli n coke: Mom and pop growers, however, could fall under the same legal problems as moonshiners


Or more likely the problems of tobacco growers: you have to have a license to grow it.

So even if you wanted to do some type of "gourmet" weed, you couldn't.

Fake crucifixion.  The difference between Madonna and any OTHER catholic tying itself to a cross as an act of faith to feel like Jesus felt is...well I'm not familiar with this instance but I'm guessing "because we don't like her."

I was never really into Madonna in the 80s, and so I honestly don't even remember what she did that was so scandalous.  I also watched some of the movies produced in the 70s like Kentucky Fried Movie, so I have trouble taking Nu-puritans and their scandalized horror at R-rated movies showing titties seriously.

I can't imagine why people had a problem with Madonna's "Like a Prayer" video. . .

sammyk: FTFA:"So-called assault weapons account for less than 1 percent of gun deaths in America. "

I am so sick of this farking argument. When an assault style weapon is used to kill people the result is farking horrific. AW's only accounting for %1 of gun deaths does not make it any better when we are talking about classrooms full of dead kids.


isn't that really kinda a pro awb argument that with assault weapons banned only 1% of deaths are from them?

Virginia is for extraordinary rendition: After this week is anyone else partisan fatigued? I just don't give a shiat about what party affiliation people belong to. I'm tired of hearing about force fed Guantanamo inmates who have been detained for 11 years with no charges. I'm tired of hearing about record profits while we face record poverty. We've lost sight of what it means to be American and how we can help each other, not just tearing each other down in a game of "one-upsmanship". Can we go back to doing good for each other? I'm just burnt out on all the infighting and watching it do nothing but destroy us. It's a game of attrition and I no longer have the stomach for it.


So you're saying signing up for fark was a bad idea?

I worry about people who not only never considered that Jesus might have been black but actually find the possibility offensive.

"Marijuana, like alcohol, causes far greater short-term impairment than does nicotine. "


OH RLY? THATS why you think we have a problem with it.. not the whole cancer thing? That whole, you know, addiction thing? Assmunch shows why conservatives are out of touch, suprising no one.

Calling a near-nude Madonna onstage a "hussy" or "tart" would be considered crude in a way that her mock crucifixion and simulated sex acts are not.

Does anyone other than VDH actually use these words unironically?

My first girlfriend in college was from Phoenix. She was a local scandal at her high school for publicly suggesting that Jesus wasn't white.

I'm not even joking.
