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.

Lionel Mandrake: cman: GOP: insane folk
Dems: cowardice folk

That's interesting.  It seems to me the GOP folk are the cowards.  Gays, Mexicans, Muslims, death panels, gun grabbers...those guys are always get wound up over some imagined threat.


they have guns, silly. you can't be a coward if you have guns.

bugontherug: 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.


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.

I believe victor whatever Hanson really wants to watch Rome and Game of Thrones will
smoking a spliff. I would also guess he secretly hopes for a devils three way. However he
is ashamed of it and trying to pray it away. Only rest stops filled with young boys makes the
guilt go away.

If only Mr. Hanson were not caught up in his "Conservative Values" I would advise him
to talk to his wife- she is probably open to spicing things up a bit. I hope he finds some
happiness in his camel wides and $12 beejers from that wayward kid he tells the neighbors
he is "mentoring"

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.


There are still Mom and Pop tobacco manufacturers. They specialize in hookah tobacco.

Also: there are a lot of "mom&pop" tobacco growers that sell to those big corporations.

It won't be Sir Tokesalot's Magic Hippy Dreamland of Perfect Happy Weed but there will be room for the small-timers to play pretend.

Also if it ever happens, I will be interested to see how we manage to take the functioning Denmark model and screw it up.

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.


Ah, randomjas, forever the conservative victim, always on his cross moaning.

I can't say I'm against legal pot. I only partake when I'm with my sister-you can't be a teacher of teens and smoke marijuana. They recognize the smell. My sister works in a medical marijuana facility though, so I don't think she wants it to go back to where it was.

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.

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.

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?

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.

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.
