Satanic_Hamster: Antimatter: Kasich came out in favor of a new government agency to push 'judeo christian values' around the world, basically shredding the first amendment.  Any hope he had of looking moderate died today.

He's never been a moderate.

As gov., he signed into law a bill that required doctors to shove a dildo inside women for no medical reason and without their consent.  Frankly, he's a rapist.


Would you accept moderate 'considering?'

qorkfiend: BSABSVR: Don't worry evangelicals, smart very serious candidate John Kasich has promoted the idea of fighting Isis by creating a government department of spreading the gospel of Jesus.

What? He didn't say that.


Yeah, he did. He wants to spread "Judaeo-Christian values" to the Middle East, Iran (which has apparently been relocated out of the Middle East), Russia, and China.

What I find particularly bizarre is, when he was asked about American Muslims and atheists, said that they would be useful to this project. I really want to know why he expects to get help promoting his religion from people who adhere to a different religion or no religion at all. Is he honestly that dense?

Y'know, if he talked about "American values" he might have a remote chance of it working. But couching it in religious terms will just make it ridiculous to Russians (the majority of whom are in fact Christians), greeted with hostility by all flavors of Muslims (who, y'know, are not exactly open to the idea of adopting either Judaism or Christianity), and not going to go over very big in China, either, given that it's officially atheist.

Of course, this is all done to appeal to who he thinks his base is, and who he is hoping will turn out for the primaries while the sane people stay at home (note: VOTE IN YOUR STATE PRIMARY, IT'S IMPORTANT). But if he should somehow get in a position to pull this off, it would give our enemies more reasons to hate us, our allies cause to think we're demented, and anyone still neutral a reason to join the other side. This is not a win.

theflatline: Zerochance: This always comes up in every Jindal thread.

I'm a naturalized immigrant, and like Jindal, I was raised in the deep South.  I anglicized my name because I thought it would make life a little easier for myself, which twenty years ago, was very much the case.  I am very proud of my heritage, but when you're a Latino kid in the deep south, you have to be pragmatic, and going by an American name (which is actually a direct English translation of my Spanish name) definitely helped me break down barriers.  I firmly believe that and I don't hold it against Jindal for doing the same.  My siblings all did it, as did many of my cousins and other Hispanic acquaintances.  It's very common within first and second-generation Hispanic immigrants, actually.

Even Obama went by "Barry" in his college years (which is widely mocked by Republicans), so even though he did end up using his birth name for his political life, he anglicized his name for many years, probably out of a similar need to fit in.  Nothing uncommon about that.

So, I'll give ole' Bobby a free pass for not going by his Indian name.

What I do find absolutely farking hilarious is that portrait of his where his skin is several shades lighter.  Motherfarker, we know what you look like, and that ain't it.  That's fair game.  Rip him for that.

Sorry, born in Houma, Louisiana, lived there til I was 12, moved to New Orleans, college in Thibodaux, with a Colombian father, who went to the same college as I did in the 60s right off the boat from Colombia, neither of us had a problem.  Bobby changed his name and religeon to suck politics dick.  Funny how I never had any problems fitting in.


what are your physical traits? Having a Colombian father or a Martian father for that matter is meaningless unless you look 'ethnic Colombian'. As to Piyush he got the name bobby  when he was young. I believe his parents gave him that nick based on the character from the Brady bunch. It's entirely dishonest to assumed he changed it only when he got into politics as an adult.

I'm no fan of him but I agree with a few here that to purposefully insult and mock his adoptive 'American sounding' name is pretty low and quite frankly surprising for fark.

Bobby jindal has a lot of things we can criticize him on but his name or race or religion shouldn't be any of them.

Are you guys just incredibly stupid or something?  It's pretty common knowledge at this point that capcaisin is an oil and water just makes food more spicy.  Spicy food + 5 glasses of water is much more spicy than just spicy food.  

I'm not trying to be a dick, but this is honestly everyone should know at this point.  Why would you order food that is beyond  your capabilities, order a drink that is known to make it worse for your delicate sensibilities, and then biatch about it?   Just eat your deep-fried chicken steeped in butter and a cup of buttermilk and stay out of this conversation.

MFAWG: You know Barry Husssein Obama never did? Try to perform an exorcism.

You know what else he never did? Literally shovel sand against the ocean.

I come not to mock Piyush for being of Asian descent, but for being a moron, which really goes against stereotypes if you think about it.


That's what lost him my support: He isn't a moron. He got his bachelor's degree with a dual major (biology and public policy). He was accepted to both Harvard Medical School and Yale Law School, but he decided to go to Oxford instead. He was a Rhodes scholar, for the love of all that's holy. This is not a stupid man.

And yet, in order to pander to his supporters, he has pretended to be stupid. He has said, not the things that an educated man would say to an intelligent electorate, but the things that a herp-a-derp populist would say to a bunch of rednecks.

He wants to be president. He wants to be president a lot. So much that he has abandoned his job as governor of Louisiana to campaign. So much that he has abandoned his intellectual integrity to pander. So much that he has, arguably, abandoned his ethnic identity to pose as somebody acceptable to the people who would vote for Bobby but wouldn't vote for Piyush. I don't expect a candidate who doesn't want to be president, of course, but some of them at least make a show of reluctance. Mr. Jindal wants to be president so badly that he has abandoned everything that he was and that he is to run. And that, right there, is why I don't want to see Mr. Jindal as president.

I blame his change as being recruited by the Foreign Office while at Oxford. Classic spy technique is to become a civil servant and work your way up into the elite command structure. Once there start feeding info to your Control.

Are you guys just incredibly stupid or something?  It's pretty common knowledge at this point that capcaisin is an oil and water just makes food more spicy.  Spicy food + 5 glasses of water is much more spicy than just spicy food.

I know what capsaicin is (and I can even spell it). No, adding water does not make food "more spicy" -- it's just that water is not all that useful for washing away the capsaicin because, being an oil and all, it's not soluble in water. So it's not all that good at making it less spicy. But if you apply enough water it will help. Hence the 5 glasses of water. I would have preferred something like iced tea (tannins ftw) but, again, this being the south, all they've got is sweet tea and that stuff is tea-flavored pancake syrup, not something you want to drink.

Why would I order food "beyond my capabilities"? Because I like it. It tastes good. There's the issue of eyebrow ignition, but I'll deal, because I like the stuff. And I'm not biatching about anything -- I just mentioned it in passing because of the mention of Indian restaurants, and mostly because the discussion of naan made me think of that place.

Also, I don't eat deep-fried anything. Not steeped in butter or otherwise. I leave that for the people who were born here. They're the ones who drink sweet tea, too, and think okra is a food. (and let's not even get into boiled peanuts)

P.S. Any time someone says "I'm not trying to be XYZ" it's pretty much guaranteed that what's coming up is going to be full-on XYZ. Just sayin'.

Yes, I understand all that.  You're the one who said that you couldn't handle spicy food "even after drinking a lot of water".  If you already understand it and can even verbalize why it's a bad idea, why did you do it?  I have to reiterate, are you guys just incredibly stupid?

It isn't a bad idea, it is a less optimal solution than one that will break down the oil. It helps, a little. It doesn't make it worse which was your claim.

Okay.  I guess that specifically mentioning that it is an oil and that mixing it with a water was a bad idea wasn't obvious enough.  That's Fark logic I guess.   "pwnt", if you will.

Maybe I should eat a whole bunch of Indian food and then biatch about how it was still hot even "after drinking 5 glasses of water".  We can all be befuddled together and blame it on our southern sensibilities.

It absolutely makes it worse.  It takes a known small volume and disperses the volume to occupy a larger area.  I am serious, how do you not know this?

You can easily test this by eating a spicy pepper and then drinking water.  The water makes it substantially worse.

If you're the type that doesn't believe the facts around them, you can even google it.  "water and spicy food".  The first 10 thousand or so results detail precisely why water makes spicy food taste even more spicy.

I can't believe that there is someone out there that is still debating this.  Are you drunk or something?

Let me chime in here a moment: Of course it does not break down the oil. But it does physically remove it from your mouth, if you use enough of it, which is better than nothing. And yes, it does help. I was there, remember? It helped. Not as much as other things would have, but more than any other available alternative, so I used what I had. It kept the burning down to the point where my eyebrows were merely smoldering a bit, and I could enjoy my dinner.

And why on earth have you made such an issue of this, including calling people names? Seriously, I mentioned in passing that the food at my favorite Indian restaurant was really hot, and you've made a federal case of it.

First one I found. No mention of making it worse. My personal experience has already been given. I am done with you, you are looking to save face after some anonymous person on the internet pointed out you were mistaken and it's clear you will get the last word in. You can have it.

It isn't a bad idea, it is a less optimal solution than one that will break down the oil. It helps, a little.

I think you don't understand the concept of "oil does not mix with water".

It does not break down the oil.  At all.

It does not help.  At all.

Let me chime in here a moment: Of course it does not break down the oil. But it does physically remove it from your mouth, if you use enough of it, which is better than nothing. And yes, it does help. I was there, remember? It helped. Not as much as other things would have, but more than any other available alternative, so I used what I had. It kept the burning down to the point where my eyebrows were merely smoldering a bit, and I could enjoy my dinner.


Eat a habanero.  Wait 60 seconds.  Then drink water.  Tell me which one is worse.

Sorry, but you're wrong.  Water does not help.  This is an easily provable fact.   If you disagree, I'm sorry.  Try eating a pepper.  Try Googling it and tell me everyone else's experience.  When both of these things contradict you, pretend only your experiences matter.  Me, I believe in science and fact.  Water isn't going to do shiat to your oil.  It's going to spread that oil into every single pore in your mouth, and you're going to regret it.  Had you ever tried it, you would know this.

Tourney3p0: You can easily test this by eating a spicy pepper and then drinking water. The water makes it substantially worse.


The spicy pepper is a single point source of capsaicin. With a dinner of Indian food, your entire mouth is exposed to the capsaicin, and therefore water is not going to spread it around because it's already all over; there's nowhere left to spread it to. At that point, mechanically removing some of the capsaicin by flooding the affected area with water does, in fact, help. I was the person eating the stuff! Personal experience: eat a mouthful of spicy food. Mouth burns. Chug water. Mouth burns less. Repeat.

For the love of God, enough already!

No, it wasn't the first one you found.  When you google "spicy food and water", your link is on the second page of results - about 2 dozen links after a bunch of links that say "Don't drink water!  It makes it taste much worse!".  It was the first one you found that agreed with your claim.  And even then, it didn't actually agree with it.  It just says that "water won't give you much relief".

Sorry you don't agree.  I actually feel sorry for you.  All the food you eat must be incredibly mundane.  Even if you ate the occasional jalapeno or something, you would know what happens if you take a sip of water afterward.

ScaryBottles: Satanic_Hamster: bainsguy: Satanic_Hamster: As gov., he signed into law a bill that required doctors to shove a dildo inside women for no medical reason and without their consent.

Uhhh. What?

I'm fully willing to believe you, but can I get that story without the hyperbole?

He signed a bill requiring that this:
[rhrealitycheck.wpengine.netdna-cdn.com image 375x250]

To be inserted in a woman's vagina for no medical reason and against her will.

If I did that to a woman walking down the street, I'd be in jail.

Bobby jindal has a lot of things we can criticize him on but the uncanny resemblance a trans-vaginal ultrasound wand has to the A&E G-Gasm Delight G-Spot Vibe shouldn't be one of them.


We're talking about Kasich.   Who DID sign a law saying that should be shoved into a woman for no medical reason, against her will.
