For instance, I was in an argument with this noise musician that was trying to tell me about all the shit he knows about the history of noise
I wasn't even doubting his credentials and he was puffing up at me telling me all the things he's done
I replied
"You win, your noise penis is bigger than mine"
Evidently I "pwned" him or something (is that what the kids are saying now?)


So what if you know a lot about the female anatomy?

Do you have a really big vagina penis?

BREAKING: BACHMANN PLEDGES TO BAN PORNOGRAPHY | Tonight, Michele Bachmann became the first presidential candidate to sign a pledge created by THE FAMiLY LEADER, an influential social-conservative group in Iowa. By signing the pledge Bachmann “vows” to “uphold the institution of marriage as only between one man and one woman” by committing herself to 14 specifics steps. The ninth step calls for the banning of “all forms” of pornography. The pledge also states that homosexuality is both a choice and a health risk.


Less government indeed.

It will be curious to see how other candidates respond. The thrice-wed Newt Gingrich is in a bind – to sign a document pledging “personal fidelity to my spouse” and “[r]espect for the marital bonds of others” would highlight his hypocrisy, but so would not signing. Tim Pawlenty, too, is in a tough spot. He needs to do well in Iowa, but promising such far-reaching intrusion into Americans’ private lives probably wouldn’t help him in a general election. Among the religious right, combining economic libertarianism with social authoritarianism seems natural, because the movement holds that only a society run according to a strict Christian morality can properly govern itself and avoid the crushing imposition of socialism. To much of the country, though, the idea of defending what the pledge calls our “exceptional and free society” by limiting citizens’ freedoms might not make quite as much sense.

Does anyone else appreciate that the republican party is finally reaching the end of the crazy train tracks?
They have one upped each other with increasingly insane rhetoric for so long now, even someone like Newt Gingrich ends up falling behind
How do you out sleaze a guy like Newt fucking Gingrich?
It warms my heart to see this shit catching up to them
They have ramped up this Faux morality trip for so long that they have painted themselves into a corner
You gotta be a fucking religious lunatic in order to get that god juice flowing nowadays

Agreed, today's Republican party is the far-right lunatic moral hypocritical fringe.

And unfortunately the Democratic party has moved towards the center. Obama governs to the right of Nixon even.

Try to stay on topic Fisty, this is about what a joke Bachmann is, not silly photos.

Weiner, aside from his idiocy with photos of his dick did quite well in politics and had a promising future. No more, so what? He's out of the news cycle already. And as far as we know he didn't break any laws.

Edwards? He's a piece of crap. We all know it. Democrats aren't standing up for him. Not like thrice-married Newt or any of a number of the immoral moral-preaching jackasses in the Republican party.

Dayton is doing a great job. You have something against him being rich? The American Dream is something you're against now?

Anyways, please answer my questions regarding your being in favor of banning all pornography, "curing" gays of their homosexuality, believing that black families were better off under slavery. Please detail your answers.

So, we’re not looking for folks who just have a speech capability. We’re looking for people who can lead a large enterprise in a public setting and drive it to conclusion. I’ve done that. She hasn’t.

Please stay on topic zom, these are separate issues that have been adressed in the past. Feel free to start another thread if you like! We are talking about MMMMMichelle Bachmann raising millions, high poll ratings, & how obsessed the city pages is about her & how the press just makes up stuff about her.

btw Newt isn't in any office at the moment. like Almost vice prez Edwards & creepy weiner.

She has no chance. None at all. She is however, entertaining in a sad, insane sort of way. She can raise all the money she wants. She will never be president of Jesusland.

She's going down.. watch her flounder. I will, with pleasure.

Andrea Saul, a spokeswoman for Romney, told The Associated Press in a written statement Tuesday that Romney "strongly supports traditional marriage," but that the oath "contained references and provisions that were undignified and inappropriate for a presidential campaign."

Looks like Romney won't be cowtowing to extremists
It's fine to have "traditional" views on marriage, so long as you understand that the rest of the country is becoming increasingly tolerant of the "non traditional" ones
I wouldn't vote for Romney anyways but at least I respect him sticking up to religious extremists

bravo Romney. never thought i'd say that!

i think Fisty likes Bachman because he sees a lot of himself in her (and Ether seems to want to see a lot of himself in her - zing!).

she, like Fisty, cites erroneous rhetoric and then just kind of ignores the holes in the logic and when faulty statements are point out.
they both tend to slide around directly answering any sort question presented to them.
they both make themselves a force in their mediums of communication by spewing frequent, relentless, ridiculous comments.
they make strange assertions against anyone even remotely leftist
they note hypocrisies of the left yet seem to ignore similar hypocrisies of the right.
they both appear incapable of compromise.

i'm know there are more, but i've wasted too much time on Fisty already.

Yeah, from a selfish standpoint it makes me happy to see it catch up to them after all of the bad people and bad policies they've supported. The other part of me is scared though because I also don't want the Democrats to get too powerful because they suck just slightly less. Unfortunately this is a two-party system and the awkward balancing act that happens is the only thing keeping us from sliding into total chaos. Someone has got to keep a leash on the Democrats or they'll take what little prosperity we have left and piss it away- if not the Republicans, who?

Since we don't have a Palin thread, I thought I'd post this one herer
Seems like Palin's Track and his new wife are expecting
Only the pregnancy is 4 months along and they have not been married that long
Sounds like Palin is just as good at raising her children to be abstinant until marriage as she is as being govenor

The hypocracy continues to build up

I can't seem to move away from batshit crazy religious conservatives
I leave Bach-Minnesota and wind up in Perry-land
The thing that disturbs me the most is that I would vote for a Republican in this election against Obama
However, it seems that Ron Paul will get drowned out by the insane ramblings of religious fanatics

So, I guess I'll have to vote lesser of two evils again

The great thing about Bachmann is that you don't even need to campaign against her- she does all the work for you by opening her mouth.

Because it would force me to vote directly against the Republican
No matter who they put up against Obama, if it is not Ron Paul then it will be some souless regilgious fanatic or corporate robot
Come to think of it, I'd vote for an actual robot than a Republican

Bachmann wins Iowa straw poll, Paul ends up second

By MIKE GLOVER and PHILIP ELLIOTT
Associated Press

AMES, Iowa (AP) -- Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann won a test vote of Iowans on Saturday, a show of popularity and organizational strength for the tea party favorite five months before the state's caucuses kick off the GOP presidential nominating season.


Not a big suprise here, these 2 have quite a bit in common & both have attacked the current failed administration very hard. Definately reflects the mood of the country. Get Big Govt out of our lives.

Headlines on FoxNews, CNN, MSNBC, and all over the web should have been “Randy Travis Wins Ames Straw Poll Edging out Ron Paul” instead of headlines which touted Congresswoman Michele Bachmann’s victory.

Bachmann spent upwards of $1 million, paid for over 6000 tickets, paid for Grammy Award winning, country musician Randy Travis to show up, and bussed in Randy Travis fans in order to secure 152 more votes than Congressman Ron Paul. Michele Bachmann’s camp handed out flyers, which stated that in order to see the entertainment, you had to vote for her first.

Win?!?! Bwah ha haaa haaa!

Ahem... sorry, I'll compose myself. No, no she won't win. She won't even get the nomination. Winning/buying a meaningless straw poll in a tiny hick state like Iowa (where she's from) is one thing, but seriously competing on the national stage is another. We've known all along it's going to be someone they've groomed for this, like Romney.

Agreed.. she doesn't have a chance for the nomination let alone to be elected.

Sorry fisty, but the fact is that "your team" is running a roster of religious lunatics and the only one with a chance to get non-nutcase votes is Romney, who contradicts himself with every other speech or interview he gives.

He is worth $190 million though.

Normally the president does not determine fuel prices, but in her case she could probably pray to God to make them lower. Maybe God would listen to her and work some kind of miracle, I dunno... I doubt it though.

Post Re: Lets talk about what a joke Michelle Bachmann is!
I’m still pretty unfamiliar with American politics, but one thing that strikes me about Republicans (and Bachmann in particular) is that they spew out a load of small government, anti-tax rhetoric… but then want the government to mandate on social issues, which seems to me to be completely anathema to Conservative principles (at least in the traditional sense). The only Republican I’d definitely vote for is Ron Paul, he may have social views that not everyone agrees with, but unlike the other candidates he doesn’t push his personal mores on others. Herman Cain also seems fairly like-able, but I need to hear more from him.

I would check out the Democrats, but I got a belly full of broken left-wing and socialist politics back in England.

Also, that John Wayne / John Wayne Gacy has to be one of the funniest political gaffes ever!

That's exactly what turns most moderate thinking people off
There are plenty of great ideas in the Republican party but the two main driving forces of their rhetoric drive me away
1-Keep your "morals" out of my politics (especially when you've had 3 divorces)
2- There is no way in hell you will convince me that rich people shouldn't be paying more taxes
The argument that the rich "job creators" will go elsewhere is ignorant on 2 different levels
1- It will not affect them moving jobs to other countries because they already do that
2- It will not keep them from participating in the US economy because they did that back in the Clinton era despite the higher tax rates

Rich people complaining about class warfare is as ridiculous a someone with a machine gun complaining that someone pulled a knife on them

I bet you did, but unfortunately many want those same left wing failed policies practiced here. (ie: health care reform). They don't care if the US becomes another failed welfare state or even a banana republic. They just want to "get even with the rich" & "put corporations in their place".
The amount of economic education taught in our schools is pathetic, probably because it’s run by Public Unions that don't believe in capitalism.

MB isn't my very top choice moodyenglishman, but she is feared (in this town especially) & the media is in full swing to take her out. & it's only because she is absolutely right about the disaster that Obama & his policies are. Note that no one here can even defend Obama, the usual response is "Michellle/Palin is crazy!"

Yet full incompetence is displayed every day by this prez.

The only people who actually fear her are mainstream Republicans who actually want to get the presidency.

Everyone else just laughs at her/makes money off her.

Face it: the first female president will not be a homophobic fundamentalist Christian.

There's just not enough overlap in their voting base.

I assume you're referring to his lack of sufficient resolve in repealing DOMA and DADT? He may be dragging his heels, but he is doing those things, and already repealed DADT.

And more importantly, he at least *said* he would fight for these things in his campaign, albeit he isn't keeping his promises as well as we might like.

He didn't actually *run* as a homophobe. Bachman is.

True, W was right of Mcain. But that was then, the economy is only getting worse and no president had ever lost America’s perfect credit, until Barack Obama.
The US is looking for another Reagan to turn things around now, MB is actualy pretty close. She has a way of winning people over to her too, like Bill Clinton.

What can you say? It's like the Jimmy Carter years all over again but worse. No time for a mushy middle guy. Perry / Bachmann?
:D

The first thing you need to know about politics in relation to this board is that Fisty, like Bachmann is a bat-shit insane Minnesotan.

No matter how insane, misguided, wrong or even downright stupid any Republican candidate is, he will support them because he treats politics like sports teams. This is typical for Republicans in general.

Cain. yes you really should learn more. He's crazy too. He started a chain of not very tasty pizza restaurants and he (and others) seem to believe that qualifies him to run a nation.

Quote:
“We all know that marriage is between one man and one woman. If it were two men together, then it wouldn’t be one man and one woman, so therefore it wouldn’t be marriage. This reasoning is clear,” Bachmann told the crowd, many of whom identified themselves as evangelical Christians. Several years ago, before she had been elected to Congress, Bachmann told a crowd that homosexuality is “part of Satan.”

Zom has decreed that anyone that is right of John Edwards is insane, his usual arguments are ment to apeal to the MTV "real Life" crowd. But he is a funny rockin dude! :lol:

Tell me this isn't insane:

Quote:
Rule by decree

The Obama administration announced last week that it would suspend deportation proceedings against many illegal immigrants who pose no threat to national security or public safety. Robert Pear explained the new policy this way in the New York Times:

The new policy is expected to help thousands of illegal immigrants who came to the United States as young children, graduated from high school and want to go on to college or serve in the armed forces.

White House and immigration officials said they would exercise “prosecutorial discretion” to focus enforcement efforts on cases involving criminals and people who have flagrantly violated immigration laws.

Under the new policy, the secretary of homeland security, Janet Napolitano, can provide relief, on a case-by-case basis, to young people who are in the country illegally but pose no threat to national security or to the public safety.

The decision would, through administrative action, help many intended beneficiaries of legislation that has been stalled in Congress for a decade. The sponsor of the legislation, Senator Richard J. Durbin of Illinois, the No. 2 Senate Democrat, has argued that “these young people should not be punished for their parents’ mistakes.”

The new policy, however, is broader than Pear’s account indicates. Lynn Sweet’s more detailed Chicago Sun-Times post includes quotes and primary materials that make it clear the policy applies to all illegals whose presence cannot be determined to raise a threat to public safety. The new policy is something like amnesty by executive decree. Those Republican congressmen who have objected to the new policy on this ground are on to something.

Only last month, addressing The Race, Obama disclaimed the authority to reform immigration policy on his own:

THE PRESIDENT: Now, I swore an oath to uphold the laws on the books, but that doesn’t mean I don’t know very well the real pain and heartbreak that deportations cause. I share your concerns and I understand them. And I promise you, we are responding to your concerns and working every day to make sure we are enforcing flawed laws in the most humane and best possible way. Now, I know some people want me to bypass Congress and change the laws on my own. (Applause.) And believe me, right now dealing with Congress —

AUDIENCE: Yes, you can! Yes, you can! Yes, you can! Yes, you can! Yes, you can!

THE PRESIDENT: Believe me — believe me, the idea of doing things on my own is very tempting.

(Laughter.)

I promise you. Not just on immigration reform.

(Laughter.)

But that’s not how — that’s not how our system works.

What is to be said? I think that the new policy reflects much that is wrong with the Obama administration. For example:

1. The new policy is bad policy, giving no recognition to its predictable consequences. It extends a welcome mat to those who have not yet made it to the United States illegally and are able to make it over the border through self-help. It might make sense as part of comprehensive immigration reform. By itself, it is a serious mistake.

2. The new policy undercuts American sovereignty. For Obama and liberals of the New York Times variety, this is an attraction. For the rest of us, not so much.

3. The new policy is formulated in terms of prosecutorial discretion and the wise use of resources, but this simply disingenuous — public relations for chumps.

4. The Obama administration has astronomically increased the budgets of federal agencies virtually since the day it took office. If additional resources are needed for immigration enforcement, the administration could seek to reallocate the necessary funds from other agencies or from elsewhere in the federal budget.

5. One would think that in a post 9/11 world, immigration enforcement would be among our highest law enforcement priorities.

6. The new policy is pure politics. With an eye to the 2012 election, it is geared to pump up members of The Race and others of their persuasion.

7. The new policy is one that does not enjoy political support. Democrats were unable to pass it as law when they controlled both branches of Congress during the first two years of the Obama administration.

8. The adoption of the new policy as a matter of executive fiat is therefore profoundly offensive to our system of government.
