When Romney wins, it is threads like this that Fark.com will delete and farkers everyone will pretend never existed.

I believe the exact quote is: "Don't worry about purging fark of all these nate silver fellatio threads after Romney wins and his credibility is ruined. I already have screenprints ready to go."

I believe it's that because I have it on a screenprint.

UberDave: I wonder what 1000 year reign of teabag-like conservatism would look like...

I'm pretty sure that's just the site of the inauguration.

that's a bit optimistic for 1000 years of teabagger reign.

Evil High Priest: Egoy3k: I'm about as socially liberal as it's possible to be but you communists are insane....

Most "socially liberal" people are pro-union. Maybe you meant to use some other words?


I think those words were:  "I like to get high"

FarkedOver: More recently in Seattle a Socialist won a seat on city council. She has advocated Boeing workers to seize the factory and equipment if Boeing moves out of washington..... I like this lady!


I'm sorry, do you *live* in Seattle? Your fark profile implies you don't.

Did you donate money to her campaign?

And really, what the fark is she going to do? She'll just be 'codifying laws into action', which, as we know, isn't REAL change. So you've told us.

/I am also glad she won, however.

Tricky Chicken: oooohhh

Liberals crying about the press?

Liberal tears are soooo sweet.


Let me guess.  In your world the media is liberal and in the tank for all things Obama, right?
Remember in 2012 when the liberal media was skewing the polls to show a big win for Obama?  Well, Romney's landslide win sure showed them!

What else is it like in your world?  Are minorities out to get you?  Is there a war on Christmas?   Is the IRS robbing you at gunpoint?

FarkedOver: Read up on his views of capitalism.  They're not that mainstream.  He had rather radical views.  Liberals typically don't like glorify MLK's anti-capitalist stance.

Plus I think Malcolm X was ten times more the speaker and advocate for change than MLK ever could be.  MLK is a nice alternative to white people who scare easy.


Apparently, according to you, Malcolm X was a liberal, because all he did was give speeches and "pay lip service" to it.

llortcM_yllort: InmanRoshi: FarkedOver: Liberalism is nothing but feel good politics.

 Yes, I'm sure it does "feels good" when you get Civil Rights.

Let's talk about accomplishments in my lifetime.  Also, make sure that they are things that the Democrats actively supported instead of jumping on the bandwagon after the grassroots groups did all the legwork like gay rights.

Dusk-You-n-Me: Serious Black: Yes, the initial numbers do not necessarily reflect strong pickup by younger folks.

Let's not forget the 6.6M young folks who stayed on or joined their parents plans.

An Estimated 6.6 Million Young Adults Stayed on or Joined Their Parents' Health Plans in 2011 Who Would Not Have Been Eligible Prior to Passage of the Affordable Care Act


Yes but 3 million people have to upgrade their farking terrible plans so game, set and potato my friend.

Garet Garrett: Serious Black: Garet Garrett: While the press circle jerks about who can first report on the death of liberalism and the glorious coming thousand year reign of conservatism, people are getting insured they're forgetting there's a looming death spiral, too

FTFY, smitty.

When was the last time you studied actuarial science?

See, I don't have to, because the Obama administration and their lackeys did it for me, even as they spin failure as an unlikely consequence (displaying a faith that would make Cubs fans uncomfortable).

http://www.theatlantic.com/business/archive/2013/11/everything-you-n ee d-to-know-about-obamacare-and-death-spirals/281315/


That article explicitly says about the slow uptake by younger people, and I quote: "How worried should we be? Not too much. At least not yet." And since when were Matthew O'Brien and The Atlantic's editors lackeys who can't stop themselves from sucking the venom out of Obama's black mamba?

Kangaroo_Ralph: If The New Yorker wanted to know something about circle-jerks, they should ask Farkers. There aren't enough mops to clean what's been piling up on the Politics tab the past few years.


Complaining about a circlejerk on an internet forum is like complaining about the Pope being Catholic.  Your assessment is right, but what exactly did you expect?

SlothB77: Liberalism won't die.  But Obamacare will.


Nothing like being blind to the truth. Half a million already signed up through medicare/"obamacare". There will be millions by January.

The boat sailed. You're standing on the dock, screaming at everyone "it's coming back! Just wait here!"
