    Thanks Darryl, I just love checking out the goodies you find for us! Here’s another one to add to your repertoire. I’m just assuming “SC” stands for S. Carolina:

    Dogs Against Mitt Romney

    Uploaded by SCForwardProgress on Jan 5, 2012

    Mitt Romney once strapped his dog to the roof of his car for a 12-hour trip. The dogs are ready to fight back.

    O’ great, The Queen Bee’s not content with shoving socialism and the metric system down kids throats, as if that wasn’t bad enough, but now she wants queer marriage too. There’s a reason they call it queer you know.

    Roger Rabbit spews:

    @3 Why do you care if gay marriage is legalized? Are you afraid your wife is going to run off with the woman next door because you’re no good in bed?

    Roger Rabbit spews:

    @4 Didn’t you know The Atlantic went broke and is owned by a self-described “neocon guy” now?

  5. 8

    Roger Rabbit spews:

    @7 Yeah, the old staff quit, and there’s nothing left except the masthead. It’s kinda like if Starbucks went out of business and McDonalds bought the brand name.

    Liberal Scientist thinks that concentrated power and wealth should be met with suspicion, not adoration spews:

    Why is it that the right wingers are always complaining about having things “shoved down their throats”?
    Fixated much?

  7. 12



    Are you a wingnut troll trying to make gay people look like hateful, ignorant assholes?

    If so…you’ve succeeded.

    If not, then quit leaving hateful, ignorant comments, asshole!

  8. 13

    Michael spews:

    According to my Republican alter ego (that would be The Dullard) it’s a drowning thing, not sexual thing. I do here righties use the term “shoved down their throats” quite a lot.

    Gman spews:

    @12 I appreciate you
    Trying to hold us gay people to the highest standards, but I like to think of what I do as fighting fire with fire. If heterosexuals can be ignorant bigoted assholes, and be tolerated by the masses as being such, why can’t I be an ignorant asshole too. I suspect you unhappiness with my approach stems from feeling a little guilt of not being the supreme being that you think heterosexuals are.

    this is what happens when you become an unstable, self-loathing freak.

    really, get some counseling…and sell the playground van.

    Mookie Blaylock, part deux spews:


    if thats your goal in life, well then…….

    lube your butt up real good before you go out tonight….wouldnt want you tearing that busted up muscle up any more than it already is.

    I predict…Adult Diapers in your future..

    “I suspect you unhappiness with my approach stems from feeling a little guilt of not being the supreme being that you think heterosexuals are.”

    I have no idea what that means. But it’s off base.

    My problem with your approach is that it makes you look like a hateful, ignorant asshole (or a wingnut troll trying to make gay people look like hateful, ignorant assholes).

  13. 20



    “I appreciate you trying to hold us gay people to the highest standards”

    Sorry, asshole, it has nothing to do with your sexual orientation. Indeed, I’m not at all convinced that you are gay, but rather a homophobic asshole trying to denigrate gays by making these stupid-ass comments.

    “but I like to think of what I do as fighting fire with fire.”

    Then this is the wrong forum for you. It sounds like you need a forum with a big fire—one populated by homophobs. That’s where fighting fire with fire works.

    In contrast, this forum is largely populated by people who are sympathetic to and promote tolerance for people with “alternative” sexual preferences/identities. When the occasional homophobic asshole (like douch-bag poster child Max-i-poo, here) then a more appropriate approach is to go after that individual…not the entire [correction] majority of the forum.

    ” If heterosexuals can be ignorant bigoted assholes, and be tolerated by the masses as being such, why can’t I be an ignorant asshole too.”

    You can…but that just makes you an ignorant asshole (and harms your “cause”, assuming you are who you claim). Your premise that all heterosexuals tolerate homophobic bigots is just pitifully ignorant. It is no different than ignorant assholes that spew their belief that all Muslims are terrorists.

  14. 21



    With all your somewhat tiresome, repetitive anti-hetero commentary you certainly have succeeded at invoking maximus asshat’s knee-jerk response.

    As if that was any sort of challenge.

    Michael spews:

    Romney’s a douche nozzle. I wouldn’t care how he spent the 60’s if he wasn’t out there beating the war drum.

  16. 24

    Roger Rabbit spews:

    @9 I’ve never comprehended how any Republican is affected by two gays getting married — unless he’s one of them.

  17. 25

    Roger Rabbit spews:

    @16 I have a better idea: Why don’t you and Gman get counseling together? You have similar issues.

  18. 26

    Roger Rabbit spews:

    @23 Hmmm, good point, Romney was a chickenhawk who counter-demonstrated against anti-draft demonstrators at Stanford University, then beat the war drum while sitting out the war on a combination of student and “ministerial” deferments. Romney — another “never served” Republican — sat out most of the Vietnam War by squatting on a “ministerial deferment” for 2 1/2 years while doing Mormon missionary work in France. This wasn’t exactly tough duty, either, as he was an assistant to the church’s local missionary leader and got to live in palatial accomodations. So … this is the guy we want for commander-in-chief? Nah, don’t think so.

  19. 27

    Mookie Blaylock, part deux spews:


    minimum 3 years military service should be a requirement for anyone serving in congress or as president. period.

  20. 28

    Michael spews:

    I don’t care if you’ve served or not, but the chicken hawks bug me. Huntsman’s a really level headed guy, probably the least militaristic person in the race Obama included, and he’s got two kids in the navy*. Then you’ve got Romney who’s been beating the war drum since his early 20’s, who never served, and I don’t think any of his kids served.

    *Huntsman’s one of the richer people on the planet, his kids sure as fuck didn’t have to serve to get out of their dead end podunk town or to pay for college. I’ve got a lot of respect for kids like that serve out of a sense of duty and responsibility and for the parents that taught them those values.

  21. 29

    Gman spews:

    @20 – Darryl, sorry if I disappoint or offend you. And sorry if I disappoint and offend anyone else here. I am who I say I am. I am no troll. I don’t think you understand my disappointment with many, or the masses. I’m not trying to make anyone feel sorry for me or pity me, but I don’t think you realize what it is like to get up each morning of each day and be made out to be a second class citizen. Are you gay?

    So my position that heterosexuals are flawed because they tend to be more violent isn’t popular, but I do feel that there is truth to it; I can see that sometimes people can’t handle the truth.

  22. 30

    Race Bannon spews:


    the only truth is that youre a nutball who really needs some counseling..

  23. 34



    Your beliefs are childish and ignorant—no different than people who claim “all Muslims are terrorists” or “all gay men are pedophiles.”

    I’m sorry if you have been victimized. But you need to get serious help for the scars it has left. Becoming a hateful, ignorant bigot, and attacking people who would otherwise be supportive of you is a losing strategy.
