toby8915: silvervial: nyseattitude: I wish republicans didn't exist

I say that every day. Think of how much we could have accomplished for our country and the world, even if just in this century, if they didn't...or if all repubs were like Teddy Roosevelt.

No wars, especially not the war we've been in the longest in our history
Single-payer health care
Same-sex marriage legal in all states
Abortion easily available in all states, treated as the private medical decision that it is
A thriving middle class and ever-shrinking poverty numbers
No banking economic crash
A balance between military and domestic program spending
Incentives to retain jobs in this country instead of off-shoring
A compassionate immigration program
A well-supported education system applied equally across the country and stringent home-schooling requirements
Student loan reform
Campaign financing reform
Sane and balanced gun control

...a frigging utopia. Sigh.

You...are an idiot. 
No wars? Last time I checked it was a democrat who got us into ww1, ww2, Korea, Vietnam, and expanded the war in Afghanistan.

Lucky LaRue: No, really. Explain to me where your outrage is being manufactured, because no normal person can get this worked up over a twitter rant.


If anyone is getting worked up, it's the guy/girl in charge of the NHGOP twitter account.

Once again, you can't tell the difference between actual outrage and just mocking. This is mocking.

I bet Maddow has explained to you how this is just the first salvo in an attack against your freedoms and liberties... It's got to be something along those lines - I refuse to believe that people are spontaniously as bat-shiat crazy as the posting in this thread without being egged on.


Where are you seeing any outrage about these tweets?  I see people being incredulous, wryly amused, perhaps exasperated, but I'm not seeing any outrage specific to the tweets.  Sure, there's some outrage at the Republicans in general, but when you've got a dyspeptic orangutan that smears its feces on everything in your house every chance it gets, you're going to get a bit wary when you hear it cut a fart, even a small one.

Lucky LaRue: The fact that you actually think there is a victim at all leaves me shaking my head. It was a f*cking childish twitter rant, for f*ck sake, not a knife fight.


On behalf of liberals everywhere, I apologize for the pain you've had to go through here, and I only hope that you may someday recover from the trauma.

That apparently came from the official account of the New Hampshire GOP. It's amusing because it reinforces the notion that the GOP is being led by a bunch of immature brats.

No outrage, just people shaking their heads at the low maturity levels that seem to persist in the NHGOP.

Well obviously the Democrats were secretly behind the assassination of that Archduke, put up "Bomb Me" signs on the US fleet in Pearl Harbor, sent "Party in Seoul, bring your tanks!" invitations to the North Koreans, and bet the French one night at a party that they wouldn't try to re-take northern Vietnam.

You beat me to that point. Regardless of the presidential affiliation, we would have entered the world wars. It would have been very difficult to be one of the top industrialized nations and sit on the sidelines for those two, especially with Japanese bombers attacking us and public sentiment swayed against the Kaiser. Would a Republican president renege on treaties and alliances, and just sit back and watch international communism spread through Asia? The party of McCarthy, being opposed to preventing the fall of various dominos? The tards who added God to the pledge and currency letting an atheist empire take over the world?

It's been a far right talking point for decades that FDR allowed Pearl Harbor to happen though if not outright baited Japan into it. He's historys greatest monster! after Woodrow Wilson.

You know, maybe I'm just an old fart, but what's the upside for a political party to be on twitter?

Anyone who follows them either:
A) would vote for them even if they raped a nun in the middle of Times Square as long as they remember to shout "BENGHAZI" as they gave her the money shot, or
B) is just following them to point out how childish they are on twitter.

I really don't see what they're getting out of this except the possibility of raising the existential question of "How much sand can your twitter account's vagina contain before it officially becomes the Sahara Desert?"

While I take most opportunities to point out that the root of Twitter is "twit", there are a few legitimate uses.

It was used very effectively here a few years back when they were evacuating people for a forest fire that almost moved into town. Other municipalities have used it for many similar situations, whether hurricane evacuation, weather alerts, or Amber Alerts.

People who go on tour, bands, comedians, authors can all use it for quick tour updates, announcing new dates or ticket availability. They can also use it for tour updates for the fans.

That's about it, but there ARE legitimate uses, most notably the first example I listed. For that reason, I find myself sometimes wishing that it had been a government program from the beginning. It has great potential as a emergency communication tool. In fact, it could totally supplement the Emergency Broadcast System, and between the two, I bet they could reach 95% if the population...

captainktainer: toby8915: ww1, ww2, Korea, Vietnam,

You know, perhaps if you were less Republican, you would have realized that those were in the 20th century, and it's an entirely new century now. Has been for 14 years. In point of fact, the first bit of your whine was literally a century ago.


Will also look past that we were in Vietnam well before Johnson - Ike deployed the first troops (as "advisors") to 'Nam

The Why Not Guy: I always thought being attacked by Japan got us into World War II. Thank you GOP for infroming me that it was really the Democrats.


Japan was running amok through the Pacific, but the isolationists didn't want the US to intervene.  Various peace negotiations went nowhere, but they were fairly careful not to do anything that would force US to intervene.

As the Japanese invaded more places, the US was still selling them oil, because stopping would have caused almost instant war.  The administration actually took a lot of flak for this - not surprisingly, the American public didn't like selling oil to a country that was invading everyone in sight and butchering hundreds of thousands.

Finally, after one invasion too many, the US stopped selling oil to Japan.  Which put them in a hard position - Japan has no domestic oil to speak of, and no oil, no modern society, and particularly no rapid military expansion.  So they had to go capture more natural resources.  They thought that doing so would cause the US to attack them, so they preemptively hit the fleet at Pearl.

So really the Right hasn't changed.  They were hammering FDR for continuing to sell oil to Japan in order to keep the peace, and then when he stopped selling oil to Japan, they hammered him for causing Japan to go to war with the US.

I used it quite effectively when I was part of a fairly big convention.  Anytime there was an event that people might have wanted to know about - a tournament starting soon, a speech or workshop or other event starting, just general reminders about con rules we saw being broken, an occasional "hey, have fun but remember while you're here to shower daily and use deodorant!" - we tweeted it.

It's really quite useful for getting small amounts of information out to specific groups of people in a very timely manner.  It's terrible otherwise.

As an Athiest I would say that the they actually are more annoying than the fundies. Worse and/or a bigger problem? fark no, but definitely more annoying.
