(SanDiegoUnionTribune)   Why the shutdown will never end: Rep Nunes (R-CA) compares the shutdown to "lighting ourselves on fire", "jumping off a cliff" "entering the valley of death", but says now that the GOP has done that, "we have to hold together"   (utsandiego.com) divider line 78

Everyone knows that "Stop, drop, and roll" is liberal nonsense. When you've been lit on fire, you just have to keep running and if you're fast enough, the flames can't catch up and you'll go out!

The Real Murican way is to douse the fire with everclear while standing tall.

Make them pay a quarter each time. We could pay off the debt.

Strangely, I cannot get an image of that woman from "The Legend of Billie Jean" where she says "I Wish" in response to the police report that kids were fleeing from the mall in a "late model sedan".

Well, if the GOP insists on lighting themselves on fire, jumping off a cliff and entering the valley of death, they may as well hold hands doing it and do the non-assholes a favor.
 
2013-10-04 02:43:40 PM  
No, you don't, you moron. You think you do because all you've cared about for so long is keeping and expanding your own power and influence, but you are allowed to vote and act on your conscious. They haven't managed to pass that ammendment yet.

Oh, how I wish this were true.

Well if they did light themselves on fire and jump off a cliff at least it would have the up-side.

By this point I'm just curious about how far this will go.

If shiat actually goes down there's a chance America will be reduced more of a local power on the same tier as Russia or China and the EU will have to pick up the slack. I'm kind of okay with that since this will finally put an end to American imperialism and put things on domestic affairs.

I seem to remember, some vague little snippet of something, that obliquely suggested that riding into a valley of Death, particularly doing it proudly, at a full gallop with banners a flag flying, was a REALLY bad idea

Cannon to right of them,
Cannon to left of them,
Cannon behind them
Volley'd and thunder'd;
Storm'd at with shot and shell,
While horse and hero fell,
They that had fought so well
Came thro' the jaws of Death,
Back from the mouth of Hell,
All that was left of them,
Left of six hundred


and sure that seems all noble an glorious NOW but in a few years:

O thirty million English that babble of England's might,
Behold there are twenty heroes who lack their food to-night;
Our children's children are lisping to "honour the charge they made - "
And we leave to the streets and the workhouse the charge of the Light Brigade

Republicans would be wise to invest in a gag order machine sooner than later.

How about comparing the shutdown to a man who can't understand why a woman refuses to marry him thinks kidnapping her is a solution.

It's a bad analogy because GOP Congressmen actually killing themselves would be good for the country.
 
2013-10-04 03:16:08 PM  
They're just going to keep digging through that pile of manure until they find a pony.

If I were in charge of the Senate right now I would pass a CR with a requirement that members of Congress get their health insurance through the exchanges. Tell the Republicans there, that is what you get.

Nunez lives in a District so far right GOP he could dig up Saint Ronnies corpse, skull fark it on National TV with a 3 year old helping and still get re-elected.  BTW his District is an area where Obamacare will do the most good since it is high poverty, high unemployment and poorly educated

If they're entering the valley of death, they should be beaten with both the rod and the staff.

No it won't. It won't result in that at all. Their base won't flinch over this, and the mouth breathing no-long-term-memory undecideds will still be wooed by "both sides are bad" two weeks after this is in the past.

I like it, but...on Fark every analogy gets people sidetracked. Even Nunes' analogies have gotten Farkers sidetracked. What Nunes should have said was something along the lines of "We House Republicans have done something very stupid that will harm the nation as well as our individual careers, and I am foolishly going to go along with them because I am not smart, have very little character and display some classic sociopathic tendencies."

That district kind of baffles me.   According to Wiki, it's 45% hispanic according to Wiki.   You would think the Dems could find a latino candidate who could beat him over the head with Congress stalemating Latino reform, with lots of Steve King quotes about "drug mules", combined with what progressive whites are in the area (it is the at least close to the greater LA metro) and make it competitive.

unlikely:
Hell, the "both sides are bad" crowd are Loud and Proud even now, in the thick of it.

I think that's because it's a mentally lazy and non-controversial stance. It's very easy to not pay much attention and when talking to friends and acquaintances spout phrases like "we should throw all the bums out!". Cries of "Yeah!" and nods of approval are sure to follow from those around you.

If instead you actually become knowledgeable about the issues and take a real stance such as placing the blame squarely where it belongs with the House Republicans, there could be some conservatives around you who take offense and start derping at you. You want people to like you, right? You don't want any arguments, right? Plus it takes time and thought to know WTF you are talking about. Boooooo!

Oh... plus most of the mainstream media outlets are preaching the "both sides are equally at fault" narrative because they're a bunch of spineless pansies who want to appeal to the largest segment of the population they can no matter what the objective facts are.

On a unrelated note, I'm trying to get funding to test my postulem that any DMX song coming on the radio in a white boy's car magically raises the decible level by 20.

FTA: "Now that we've jumped off the cliff, lit ourselves on fire, we've entered the valley of death," said Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., who has criticized the conservatives' strategy. "So now we've got to keep running and we have to hold together."
