fusillade762: I guess he'd outlived his usefulness.


Do we include him in the list of politicians and diplomats that have died since the election?
 
2017-09-27 05:33:59 AM  
Then the deaths began?

Accidentally brutally cut his own head off while shaving?

Accidental overdose... of polonium?
 
2017-09-27 05:43:21 AM  
After the election, Facebook and Googe cracked down on hoax websites.

Googe is the worst.

Sad tag? Really?
 
2017-09-27 05:54:24 AM  
Horner had a history of prescription drug abuse and that "evidence at the scene suggested this could be an accidental overdose."

We really need to examine the way doctors are over-prescribing polonium since November.

The big question is, how are they going to make this Obama's fault?

It occurs to me that some farkers haven't caught on yet: it's all fake news.
Go ahead, prove your ignorance by arguing the point.  Do it!

J.J., Horner's brother, said Paul considered his work satire and explained that his brother's unique eye for hoaxes and hypocrisy at a young age later worked as clickbait in the internet world.
"So I think that was a lot of the genius behind a lot of his work was pushing ideas that either people wanted to believe or thought was possible," J.J. said
.


Ehhhh! Wrong. He just wanted to make money writing bullshiat.
 
2017-09-27 06:33:25 AM  
Hopefully this is the start of a trend.
 
2017-09-27 06:33:35 AM  
Good riddance.
I know I should be more respectful  but this guy was in the echelon with some of the worst people.

Don't all Trumpsters have prescription drug problems?  American Carnage!
 
2017-09-27 06:42:48 AM  
He was part of the problem. He knew it. Nevertheless, he persisted. I am not sad he's gone.

They're going to use the time machine Obama left behind in the White House to go back and do it. After they're finished using to cause the North Korea problem, of course.

See? Not all Trumpers are bigots. Some are merely weak idiots.

"I think he just wanted people to just think for themselves and be credible for their actions," J.J. Horner said. "Read more; get more involved instead of just blindly sharing things."

Uh huh. That's why he made his living off of people blindly sharing things. To teach them a lesson.
 
2017-09-27 07:00:11 AM  
And nothing of value was lost.  Damn waste.  He could have led a life of drunken debauchery and left the word a better place than he did.

Fark em. I hope the guilt killed him. I hope he had enough of a conscience to feel bad for what he did.

Cache: FTFA: ...Horner had a history of prescription drug abuse.

That's a fact. But I wouldn't judge so harshly, considering. The catalogue of weaknesses paraded around here on a daily basis rivals anything the idiot conservatards can come up with.

Thanks; I stared for the longest time wondering whether to mention that word 'genius' here. You saved me that at least.

I'm surprised no-one's thought to call him a 'hero' yet, for this: '"I think he just wanted people to just think for themselves and be credible for their actions," J.J. Horner said. "Read more; get more involved instead of just blindly sharing things."'

The Googles Do Nothing: Don't all Trumpsters have prescription drug problems?  American Carnage!


If they did, that would certainly explain a lot.

I remember reading a book several years ago that was all about 'fake news' before 'fake news' became a thing.  I can't, for the life of me, remember the title. I would love to read it again.  It went into detail about how to fabricate a story or rumor and get it spread around quickly.

Ambivalence: The Googles Do Nothing: Don't all Trumpsters have prescription drug problems?  American Carnage!

The vin diagram for people who abuse prescription drugs and are Trump supporters probably has a lot of overlap.  However in my own family, there are people who support Trump because they are just really old, and they have heard enough lies, that they think the lies confirm other lies.  There is a reason churches and conmen have their best success among the elderly.
 
2017-09-27 07:50:28 AM  
Thus proving once again that there ARE some obituaries one can read with pleasure.

I'm certainly sympathetic to his family and friends, especially if they were hurt by his drug use. But I'm still glad he's not around anymore.

You used the term absolutely correctly so I know you know what you're talking about, but the name is actually Venn. It's some dude. :)

Do you have your use of quotes straight?  There's fake news -- what this asshole peddled -- and "fake news", which is what our PotUS uses to describe actual news.
Just trying to be clear here.  Kind of important to keep the two sorted out while the whole country's being gaslighted.

Reportedly a history of abusing prescription drugs. Conspiracy not required at this time.
