wow big shocker - the guy who's most "against" it, turns out to be neck deep into it.

Same thing for people who are so vocal about abortion, gays, sex outside of marriage, and pretty much any other controversial topic.  The people who go out of their reasonable way to be 'active' about something are USUALLY the ones into it. Either through guilt or pure stupidity they think it will draw attention away from their secret.

I'd be LARGE sums of money that those bible beaters who scream and go all nuts over gay marriage are the ones that secretly love to swallow meat.  They think if they are anti-gay nobody will ever realize they sucked 12 dicks in college at some truck stop glory hole and then felt bad because "jesus saw"

And the CA politician who was so against violent video games and gun running turns out to be a secret supporter of Asian organized crime. It isn't just Fark Independents who are the best projectionists.

Meh, I'll admit to being a troll right now, and a poor one at that.  But it's only because I have no respect for Bob Robert.  He has no talent for trolling.  He has a mediocre profile, an obvious username he probably thinks is clever just because he wasn't born when the movie came out, and types overly aggressive posts when they aren't needed.  Otherwise, I was responding to a pretty good troll from  vartian.

You are a bad troll because you are unintelligent. You make no salient points at all - you just spew buzzwords and act like you are above it all. It isn't clever, it isn't even particularly annoying, it is just rather sad.

Rough day for Democrats....

First, big DNC donor Donald Sterling gets popped by the NBA for continuing centuries-old Democrat tradition of racism...including infamous comment  "I feed and clothe those blacks"

Next, Democrat WhackNut Congressman Alan Grayson (DERP-FL) sues for divorce from his wife of 24 yrs, claiming she was already married to someone else.  DERP:  24 years is a long time to figure that out  DERPCON LEVEL 5:  Wife's name is Lolita

Which would be fitting for our Illinois Democrat legislator....who thinks 12 yr olds are too old...prefers them 6, 7, and 8.  Not only Chris Hansen is disturbed by this...Chris Hayes is even disturbed

Byrd later would use the term "white n----" to describe white folks who acted like black stereotypes.  Byrd never changed.  The Democrats just complain only when GOP is alleged to be racist.

Where have I trolled? You admit to breaking the rules on Fark and your only response is to make this about me? You are a sad pathetic little child who is mad because every point you've ever made in life has been laughed at and proven wrong by everyone else. No wonder you hate yourself so much.

Commits perjury? The problem comes from him being asked this question in the first place. He lied about getting a blowjob. Oh the humanity. Nobody should care about the personal life as long as it doesn't break any laws. This applies both to Democrats and Conservatives. But the family values crowd is the one who always brings the OUTRAGE when it is a Democrat caught.

And outrage over Newt cheating? Where? I was pointing out the hypocrisy with being OUTRAGED over Clinton's actions, but turn around and support Newt the slimeball hypocrite.

Yes, you know perjury where one is under oath and knowingly and deliberately lies.  I don't care what they lie about, it's still lying and perjury.  It's especially egregious and disgusting when it's a sitting President lying to cover his arse in a case about him sexually harassing a woman.  A fact that seem to be completely forgotten on the crowd that claims to be all about women because their hero is involved.

Newt is a complete dickhole and every time he gets that "I'm the smartest person in this room" smirk on his face I wanna slap it off of him.  I can't stand him and wish he would just retire and go away.

Big DNC donor! All of $4000 20 years ago, before switching party affiliation 16 years ago. Dude's donations are obviously the only thing standing between the DNC and defeat.

Impossible. Every FARKer sold his or her soul to Satan to post on this site.

Day_Old_Dutchie: How many more intelligent pervs are out there who do understand how to cover their tracks?????

If you want some truly depressing reading, go out and read some of Interpol and the FBI's crime statistics and information on child human trafficking and sexual slavery in the world today. 

If you needed any more reason to hate the Russian Mob and many other organized crime groups, this will be it.


Ever watch Sin City? There's a part where a tough guy is brutalizing a hitman and remarks about how the good thing about killing them is nothing you do to them makes you feel bad.

Human traffickers are in that category for me. If one of them was dragged from their house at 2am to their front yard and a shotgun placed at the base of their neck, I wouldn't feel an ounce of pity for them. It is one of only a few evil acts that just is so horrendous the person just can't be salvaged.

Lynch them, brutalize them, torture, whatever. I can't find myself mustering even an iota of empathic pain for them.

You can play semantics all you want with perjury, the point is he never should have been asked about affairs in an instigation into his links to a real estate scam.

And again I go back to the fact that Clinton supporters are not family values preachers who care about the "sanctity of marriage" so that argument also does not make sense.

You are batting .000 so far. Keep it up.

You need to get your facts straight.  He was asked about his affairs in a lawsuit alleging sexual harassment of a woman.

Who's batting .000?
