WTFDYW: Come on sane GOP leaders grow some balls and tell the ultra righties to fark off and grow up in to the 21st century.

These aren't the ultra right-wing Republicans. These are regular Republicans, who are completely unable or unwilling to do what's in the best interests of our country if it means working with Democrats. Stop pretending that the GOP has been hijacked. The entire party is bad,

Look, I don't care if Hitler has the good idea, if it is a good idea, helps others and avoids final solutions, then great.


Whenever I hear that, I know I'm about to get screwed out of recognition, pay, or both.

Once again, fark libs actually believe this shiat is only done by republicans. Oh, whats that? An update to the article. I assume the usuals will be in here to berate the democrat party for their cheeky shenanigans as well?

UPDATE: As it turns out, this practice is not particularly uncommon and happens in both directions. Why? So that legislators can go to their constituents and say, "See?! I was all over this issue for you guys." The rub is that the party in power calls the shots and decides which version of the legislation gets passed and, at the moment, that's the Republicans across the board.


/judging from the comments above, it seems most people would rather get their ideological points in than finish reading the article.

Ned Stark: skullkrusher: yay, politics is a sporting event!

/le sigh

If you approach it any other way you are just setting yourself up for unnecessary pain, stress and heartbreak.


His point is that it shouldn't be.  In a sane pragmatic society our elected representatives would, you know, represent us.  It's going to take more than this, though, for us to remember that one of the things that makes our society work is the ability to effect bloodless change from the ground up.  Top down change (as all the Facebook meme posters continually forget) is simply not going to happen.  They believe that by re-electing them we've given them our blessing to continue down the path.

/Still think the way to solve it is to make every elected official's salary the median of their constituency...

I guess a picture of Ronald Reagan saying "Fark you, I got mine, and I did it all myself with no help whatsoever (Even though I totally had help but whatever.)."

Basically, it's what the Republican party has devolved into. Mouthbreathers to the last.

seventypercent: Yes but if Democrat bills are allowed to pass as Democrat bills then the whole country will be taken over by lesbian bassoonists and we will all be forced at gunpoint to read the book "Ulysses" by James Franco

HellRaisingHoosier: Here is some work. Round the bend we go. Heck of an awesome project I'm working on. Wish I had some better reports to work on. Alas, I don't always know what to do. Some of us can't figure this stuff out. Hopefully, no one noticed. Everyone should notice though. Run, run Rudolph. Elephant banana pants.


Ha! I just use Google translate to put it in Spanish, and then back to English!

Here is a little work. Around the bend we go. Heck of a project I'm working awesome. I wish I had some better reporting to work. Unfortunately, not always know what to do. Some of us can not understand this place. Hopefully, nobody noticed. Everyone should note though. Run, run Rudolph. Banana Pants elephant.

The freshman Democrat learned a very valuable lesson today.

As a young person attempting to play ball with the older generations I've had TONS of my ideas, topics and paperwork ripped off by those beside or above me. There is nothing "against the rules" about it, and you look childish complaining. Here is what I now do (or something similar) in work that I feel important.

Test Example:
Here is some work. Round the bend we go. Heck of an awesome project I'm working on. Wish I had some better reports to work on. Alas, I don't always know what to do. Some of us can't figure this stuff out. Hopefully, no one noticed. Everyone should notice though. Run, run Rudolph. Elephant banana pants.

Translates to:
H-R-H   W-A-S   H-E-R-E

Then later, if you were ripped off, you laugh and point it out to the most gossip-flowing coworkers in the office. It has worked every time.

Question: When people plagiarize, why do they not reword things?
Answer: Because if they weren't lazy they'd have done their own work.

Who are these sane leaders? The closest to sanity that they had were Gary Johnson and Huntsman, neither of whom has the GOP turned to in any form of soul searching. The leaders of the party are not sane and the sane are not allowed within 20 miles of Having any authority.

So vote Republican?


So primary your arseholes. And don't get all sanctimonious with the rest of us if we don't show up to support your arsehole whom you refused to primary and he loses in the general.

So? This is exactly what Romney was going to do with the ACA. His whole "repeal and replace" idea boiled down to "repeal, put a new cover sheet on it with my name, and pass it with 100% Republican approval."

"You might think that with such a blatant theft Stamas would have added his own spin to the resolution. You would be wrong. HJR L and HJR N are identical, word-for-word."

I used to insert "invisible" identifiers in reports and queries I wrote so I could tell when my work was being copied or reused, just for my own knowledge. This likely being simple copypasta I'd start trying to work in a sentence whose initial letters spell "GOPSUCKS."
