Dick Cheney giving advice on how to fight terrorism is like Charlie Sheen giving advice on how to save your marriage.

2. Puddybud Remembers Progressives Forget spews:

Puddy knows certain HA Libtardos are humorless dumb bricks and cinder blocks.

A man went into a pharmacy and asked to talk to a male. The woman he was talking to said that she was the pharmacist and that she and her sister owned the store, so there were no males employed there.

She then asked if there was something which she could help the gentleman with.

The man said that it was something that he would be much more comfortable discussing with a male pharmacist.

The female pharmacist assured him that she was completely professional and whatever it was that he needed to discuss, he could be confident that she would treat him with the highest level of professionalism.

The man agreed and began by saying, “This is tough for me to discuss, but I have a permanent erection. It causes me a lot of problems and severe embarrassment. So I was wondering what you could give me for it?
“The pharmacist said, “Just a minute, I’ll go talk to my sister.”

When she returned, she said, “We discussed it at length and the absolute best we can do is: 1/3 ownership in the store, a company car and $3,000 a month living expenses.”

Happy New Year.

The honorable Dick Cheney will always go down in the hearts of American citizens as a great man for his tireless service to this country. I was proud to have served under him while he was the Sec. of Defense in the adminstation of that other honorable and patriotic man, Ronald Reagan.

Only a complete imbecile could think Cheney is wrong on the terror issue. Of course, the real deep thinker in there now (/sarcasm) calls the people that want to slice your heads of ‘man-caused disasters”. How friggin ignorant is that?

Asking Obama to make an executive decision is like asking Ted kennedy what diet plan he was following.

“Former Gitmo detainees help al-Qaida grow in Yemen

“By MIKE MELIA and SARAH EL DEEB, AP

“SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico — As a prisoner at Guantanamo, Said Ali al-Shihri said he wanted freedom so he could go home to Saudi Arabia and work at his family’s furniture store.

“Instead, al-Shihri, who was released in 2007 under the Bush administration, is now deputy leader of al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula, a group that has claimed responsibility for the Christmas Day attempted bomb attack on a Detroit-bound airliner.”

12. Roger Rabbit spews:

Okay, since you lamebrain wingfucks can’t come up with a goat joke, I’ve got one:

One day, on a normally tranquil farm, a rancid stench led the farmer to the rotting corpse of a murdered pig buried in the straw inside the barn. The farmer was determined to find the killer. The only witness was a rabbit.

The farmer lined up the suspects: A cow, a young goat, a horse and a rooster. He instructed the rabbit to point to the killer. The rabbit hopped up and down the lineup. He stopped and nodded his head at the young goat. The nervous goat said, “I didn’t do it!”

The farmer replied, “Hare’s looking at you, kid.”

13. Roger Rabbit spews:

That, my wingnut friends, is what’s called a shaggy dog story about a rabbit, a goat, and a pig.

Do I need to explain it for you idiots?

14. Empty Suit Obama spews:

That’s funny, but do you have any goat jokes?

As a matter of fact, I do.

So this rabbit and Goat walk into a bar…they begin to belly up to the bar when the goat asks the rabbit “may I push in your stool?” to which the rabbit replied “wasn’t last night enough for you? I’m not doing that in a public setting.”

15. Lee spews:

@5
Cheney is correct.

He’s not correct about anything. His understanding of what causes terrorism and how to best prevent it is so far off the mark that you’d be hard pressed to be more wrong than him.

O-BOMB-out has this ridiculous passion for making sure the rest of the world loves us…no matter what the cost.

What cost? What the hell are you talking about?

First of all, it’s unrealistic to expect that everyone in the world will love us. That’s impossible. But Cheney’s strategy ends up making sure the rest of the world hates us. How is that helpful? How does that help reduce terrorism?

Perhaps it is part of his insatiable need to be worshipped? You know, going on Letterman and Leno, giving endless, meaningless speeches.

He’s the President. It’s his job to speak to the American public. That’s part of the job. But I care more about what he does than what he says, and so far he’s shown himself to be a much smarter and much tougher player in world affairs than either Bush or Cheney.

O-Bomb-out fails to understand WE ARE AT WAR!

To the extent that we’re at war, the goal of the war is to have our values triumph over the values of those in Al Qaeda and among Middle East dictators. In that respect, Dick Cheney, by supporting torture, indefinite imprisonment, and disrespect for civil liberties, is on the side of the terrorists in that war. There’s simply no ambiguity about this. Dick Cheney and Osama Bin Laden are on the same side. Moderates around the world are on the other.

18. ArtFart spews:

We are at war, not because of the threat of terrorism, but rather because the Bush Gang wanted to have a war. They were in fact arrogant enough to document this several years earlier. Apparently some of the rest of us were such dumbfucks that we thought they were only joking, and the rest are even more depraved than they are and get their rocks off on dead “furriners”. (The neocons are more pragmatic: they do it for the money.)

19. ArtFart spews:

From Pennsylvania comes the news from that state’s dog breeders, many of whom are also farmers, that it’s their standard practice to dispose of not only the animals’ waste but the remains of puppies died of “natural” causes or were unsold (not “cute” enough, perhaps) but composting it all and spreading it on their crops. In Lancaster County, this typically amounts to 135 tons of dogshit, and an unspecified amount of composted animal carcasses, spread on a typical cornfield in a year’s time.

Last week I threw away Cheney’s response to my letter in which I urged him to get on the GOP ticket in 1992, preferably at the top.

He was and is a good man, despite what the cottontail wingfucks tell you, mostly because he came from a good state where the cowboys ride and where no goat has to worry about being molested by wingfuck rabbits.

31. Knicker-Bomber spews:

“All year long, Republicans have asked the question: what is this Administration’s overarching strategy to confront the terrorist threat and keep America safe?”

Why, didn’t you hear? There is no terrorist threat because there is no War on Terror. That was so … Bush. So last year. Obama’s totally got us beyond all that nonsense.

Want proof? Go to Horsesass.org (if you’re ok with barfing up your lunch) and notice that the Global War on Terror isn’t there anywhere. That’s because Goldstein is still jonesing on his Global War on Hutchinson.

The S&P 500 is up 23% for the year.

Companies have expanded more than what was forecast and the # of jobless (always fudged by every government) is down.

Concern that the Fed will consider raising interest rates was spurred today after initial U.S. jobless claims fell to 432,000, the lowest since July 2008, following a report yesterday from the Institute for Supply Management-Chicago Inc. that showed companies expanded more than forecast.

“Jobless claims numbers show we’re heading in the right direction,” said Joseph Saluzzi, co-head of equity trading at Chatham, New Jersey-based Themis Trading LLC. “It’s also a double-edged sword. The better the economy gets, the more likely the Fed will raise rates.”
http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=20601087&sid=aOBUvgCAoykM&pos=1

My two favorite indicators of how we’re doing, the CPI and Personal Savings Rate, look good for the year.

On the bad side of things, oil is headed back up, lets hope it doesn’t go high enough to undo the good that’s been done this year. And way too many people got shot, here at home and abroad.

I think it’s a mistake to try to “get back where we were.” Where we were was living well beyond our means and in a bubble. Plus, oil was half what it costs now. Hopefully we’ve said good by to bubble economies, living beyond our means and needs, and thinking that oil is cheap and inexhaustible.

I think we’re better off at the end of ’09 than we were at it’s start. 2010 looks like it’s going to be a rough ride but, everything good comes from hard work and struggle. I think we’ll come out of the end of 2010 looking better than we went into it as well. I’m looking forward to the new year.

Happy New Years everyone.

34. GBS spews:

President Eisenhower warned us to be wary of the “industrial military complex.”

Ever since WWII America has been fixated on it’s national security. Throughout the 60′s, 70′s, & especially the 80′s we’ve greatly ignored this warning. Ever since 9/11 we’ve gone hog wild on security.

China, on the other hand has been and is continuing to fixate on commerce. If we continue down this path China will become the only superpower in the world.

Take for instance this story; http://business.timesonline.co.uk/tol/business/industry_sectors/natural_resources/article2910583.ece

For a meager $3 billion dollars China has made the largest investment in Afghanistan’s history buying the rights to what will be a very fruitful copper mine. It will create 10,000 jobs to mine the copper. Which, in turn will create other sources of commerce for Afghanistan.

Now, in the long run, who do you think the Afghan’s will be loyal to; Americans who’ve for the last 8 years torn up their country and killed many civilians in the process, or, China who brought them economic security with one bid?

It’s a no brianer.

China is also investing in other assets, oil assets, right in our backyard: http://www.canadafreepress.com/index.php/article/17958

China is sucking in so many US dollars it has to convert the paper assets to hard assets that will either appreciate in value and/or help them fuel their growing economy — which grew at 8% this year. Compare that to the financial disaster Bush and the Reagan Republicans left us this year.

Next time you’re at Wal-Mart buying products Made in China a Chinese family thanks you for making China great.

Voting Republican = killing America.

Why do Republicans hate America?

35. Knicker-Bomber spews:

Eisenhower, as we’ve noted here at least twice, was trying to caution us about the military-industrial-Congressional complex, an iron triangle of contractors and Senate Democrats (such as JFK and Stu Symington) who were trying to terrify us with the spectre of missile gaps and bomber gaps.

Democrats lied then, as they always do, and asserted without proof that General Eisenhower had allowed our force structure to be overtaken and surpassed by the USSR. To be fair and balanced, the gaps in missiles and bombers did exist, but they were totally in our favor.

That episode tells us much about now. Democrats have again misrepresented the threat we face, but now they try to diminish it and talk it away.

Apologists for Islam told us in 2001 that “only” 10% of the world’s Moslems followed the path of radical and militant holy war. I did the math. We had only 130,000,000 militants, who interpreted jihad as violent apocalypse, to worry about. And tell us again, GBS: how did war-criminal Bush push 130,000,000 peaceful pacifists into violence when Bush had been pres for only eight months? Since everything then and now is GWB’s fault, I’d really like to know what he did between January 2001 and Sept 2001 to make (almost) everybody hate us.

Isn’t it odd that yesterday you were reciting tired canards about GWB’s inattentiveness to an opaque and vague PDB in August 2001. How convenient. You’re having it both ways. Blaming Bush for fanatically forcing the Religion of Peace to become a religion of crotch-bomb war, while being too laid back about a threat that everybody else (that would be Richard Clarke) later asserted was blindingly obvious.

Remember that Clarke tried to take credit (generously shared with Blue Dress Bill) for foiling the Millennium Plot a stone’s throw from here. The Seattle Times showed that Clarke was a lying liar. And that Ahmed Ressam tried to do his bomb a year before GWB (whom you accuse of inciting Muslim violence) was president.

As for Afghanistan, well … that’s Mr. Obama’s war, isn’t it? That’s his surge, isn’t it? Should be no problem, since he promised to have us out of Iraq in 2009. That gives him about two more hours to follow through. Just as he followed through on his promises about transparency, whacking earmarks (while signing a ‘stimulus’ bill with thousands of them and while push a defense bill with thousands of them), and whacking lobbyists (while pulling dozens of them into his government.

Hope’n’change, man. Believe it.

What an ignorant statement. The newest, freshest immigrant off the boat could tell you within a week which of the political persuasion love their country more.

Is it the liberals that threaten to leave the country if “their candidate” doesn’t win a presidential election? NO

Is it the dirty,filthy hippies that protest in the streets by throwing rocks, bottles at police and damage private and public property causing several thousands to millions of dollars in damages? NO.

Is it the leftist hate sites like HA, KOS and HUFFPO who take incredible cheap shots on their oppostions family members like that of Sarah Palin from the time she was announced to present? Or engage in orgiastic revelry when “one of theirs” passes on like that experienced with the passing of Ronald Reagan or Jerry Falwell, etc? NO

Is it those same liberals in Hollywood that threaten to leave the country, but don’t, but then go on to make anti-American movies by the dozens to include one that has the American president assasinated in it? NO

I could go on, but the point is made. That person would recognize that it is thin-skinned leftists that hate this country. That is a given.

No Worker Rights Next Year

Rep. Mike Sells (D-Everett) says he won’t reintroduce the workers’ rights bill that Republican Gov. Christine Gregoire and Republican legislative leaders Frank Chopp and Lisa Brown killed last year, the Everett Herald reports.

Sells, who works for a labor organization, says there’s no point in bringing up the bill if it won’t pass. The bill would allow workers to skip meetings called by employers to harangue their workers about politics, religion, or unions.

Business groups claim the law would infringe on employers’ “constitutional right of free speech.” Of course, there’s no such thing as workers’ right of free speech, because anytime a worker says what he really thinks, the employer fires his ass. In a world run by employers, the only rights workers have are: The right to have their pay cut, their jobs outsourced, their production quotas increased, their health benefits cut, and their pension funds looted.

Well, workers don’t have to put up with this shit! If the Legislature won’t protect them from aggressive employers, they can protect themselves! All they have to do is QUIT. That’s what I did, and ever since I quit working, I don’t have to put up with any employer bullshit anymore.

We wouldn’t need such a law if no one worked. If our Republican governor and legislative leaders won’t give workers any rights, then workers will have to TAKE those rights — by not working. No one should work. Working doesn’t make any sense. I don’t work! I’m a capitalist now, and make my money the same way Republicans do, by skimming off the top of the economy. Working is the worst way to get money there is. Workers have no rights and get peanuts. The real money goes to unproductive leeches like bankers, business owners, and investors like me.

45. Roger Rabbit spews:

“When Gov. Chris Gregoire, Senate Majority Leader Lisa Brown and House Speaker Frank Chopp read the e-mail they huddled behind closed doors, then announced the bill was dead. They also asked the Washington State Patrol to investigate if the e-mail amounted to a crime by linking donations to legislative action; troopers found no wrongdoing.

“Some Democrats questioned the timing of and motives behind the legislative leaders’ actions. Back then Boeing, one of the most ardent opponents, hadn’t announced its decision to build a second production line for the 787 Dreamliner in Washington state or South Carolina. Officials of the aerospace giant made clear to the governor and legislative leadership that passage of the bill would be viewed as a negative for the state.

“Sells was one of several legislators who said then he felt party leaders overreacted to the e-mail because they didn’t like the bill and wanted to send a message to Boeing.”

Sales tax on services; more taxes on small businesses; more gambling; more user fees. That’s how they’re gonna stick it to the overtaxed underclass. Mark my words.

Why the hell do we keep voting for these people?

48. Roger Rabbit spews:

Now this must pizz off the HA Libtardo bunch…

The judge, Ricardo M.

The statements had been given with the understanding that they would not be used against the guards in court, the judge found, and federal prosecutors should not have used them to help guide their investigation. Urbina said other Justice Department lawyers had warned the prosecutors to tread carefully around the incriminating statements.

“In their zeal to bring charges,” Urbina wrote in a 90-page opinion, “prosecutors and investigators aggressively sought out statements in the immediate aftermath of the shooting and in the subsequent investigation. In so doing, the government’s trial team repeatedly disregarded the warnings of experienced, senior prosecutors, assigned to the case specifically to advise the trial team” on such matters.

Person Playing Puddy @ 68,

Your character is delving into the absurd and illogical again…

“Once again why does the ACLU hate America”

What the fuck? Even a role-playing character should try to exhibit more intelligence than to pretend an organization experiences and emotion like love or hate.

“And by extension…”

“By extension”??? Your character is using a big word in a nonsensical way.

“…HA Libtardos love the ACLU”

The idea that HA liberals “love the ACLU” is more of your character’s infantile stereotyping. I suspect there are many who LIKE the ACLU, and appreciate it, and some who don’t care either way. Some probably “love” the ACLU, but your comment, that HA liberals love the ACLU, is sophomoric psychobabble.

“so why do HA Libtardos hate America?”

This is a logical fallacy. You are (symbolically) stating: A hates B. All C love A. Therefore all C hate B.

The path of reasoning does not lead from your premise to your conclusion.

Example: if my sister hates my wife, and I love my sister, it does not imply that I hate my wife.

Of course, your character’s mal-logic isn’t helped by the fact that you began with a false premise.

I thought “open thread” meant just that. Apparently I was wrong.

The idea that HA liberals “love the ACLU” is more of your character’s infantile stereotyping. I suspect there are many who LIKE the ACLU, and appreciate it, and some who don’t care either way. Some probably “love” the ACLU, but your comment, that HA liberals love the ACLU, is sophomoric psychobabble. ~ Darryl (the lazy and unprepared professor)

Wow, Darryl quoting Rush Limbaugh. Now that’s funny stuff.

79. Roger Rabbit spews:

@67 The judge is merely enforcing the immunity agreement made by the Busheviks, puddy. Don’t blame the judge; blame Bush’s apparatchiks who offered the immunity deal in the first place.

The net result is that a gang of murderers gets off scot-free because incompetent Republican lawyers fucked up.

And poodlekins is leaping for joy! Almost makes you want to vomit …

80. Roger Rabbit spews:

@68 “Once again why does the ACLU hate America?”

What’s hilarious about this rant is the ACLU is the law firm of choice for Republican miscreants who want legal services without paying for them.

83. Darryl spews:

Lil’ Empty Suit Dumbass,

“I thought “open thread” meant just that. “

It does. But comments are deleted for reasons other than being “off topic”. See the HA Comment Policy.

“Apparently I was wrong.”

You are wrong about thinking you were wrong.

“Wow, Darryl quoting Rush Limbaugh.”

Um…no I wasn’t. If I had been quoting Limbaugh, I would have used typographic conventions to indicate it.

“Now that’s funny stuff.”

I suppose. I mean, when you invent “facts”, it cannot be much of a challenge to find yourself amused by it….

84. Roger Rabbit spews:

@72 So this comparison of government vs. private employer compensation costs is supposed to prove what? That government should pay traffic engineers, IT professionals, urban planners, program managers, wildlife biologists, epidemiolists, crime lab technicians, state troopers, bank examiners, etc., what workers in dry cleaning and fast food establishments get?

What you’re overlooking is that most government jobs require college degrees, many require advanced degrees, and government organizations have a much higher proportion of professional and managerial staffing.

You’re comparing apples to oranges. But don’t let basic honesty stop you from making a pointless point …

86. Puddybud Remembers Progressives Forget spews:

Hey Darryl,

Why the fuck should Puddy react to you when your side says worse shit every day on this blog? So everything coming from an HA libtardo is full psychobabble, but but gets a pass from da professor because he blindly turns away from their psychobabble.

The ACLU is against those full body scanners. The full body scanners would have caught the dingaling underwear bomber. They hate the US PERIOD!

Stuff it dude.

87. Roger Rabbit spews:

@81 I never heard of the guy, so how could I be quoting him? Apparently it escapes you that when facts are obvious it’s likely that several million people will reach the same conclusion on their own. Also, you can’t grasp the notion that some of us think for ourselves, because you have no experience with that.

88. Puddybud Remembers Progressives Forget spews:

Herr Goebbels Dumb Bunny,

So the ACLU takes a Republican case every so often. It doesn’t excuse their propensity to back the absurd anti-religion anti-US position 95+% of the time.

89. Empty Suit Obama spews:

re: the word “Psychobabble”

Um…no I wasn’t. If I had been quoting Limbaugh, I would have used typographic conventions to indicate it. ~ Darryl

Wrong. Limbaugh invented that word over 15 years ago and seeing you use it is hilarious. Like I said, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery and Rush, I’m sure, is smiling somewhere in Hawaii knowing that.

87. Roger Rabbit spews:

@81 I never heard of the guy, so how could I be quoting him?

Liar. That word hasn’t been used in eons until recently when Hannan abused PM Brown with it.

90. Roger Rabbit spews:

@86 I have a better idea, puddlehead. Let’s skip the cost of the scanners and simply make everyone disrobe in the inspection line.

91. Puddybud Remembers Progressives Forget spews:

76. Roger Rabbit spews: Nothing important.

Puddy was responding to your insane moronic psychobabble about Chicago.

92. Roger Rabbit spews:

Actually, as a lawyer, I like the idea of installing scanners capable of producing images which, if stolen by TSA employees and posted on the internet, could cause extreme social embarrassment and economic loss to airline passengers — provided there’s no tort immunity attached. I always welcome new business opportunities for my legal brethren.

93. Puddybud Remembers Progressives Forget spews:

Well once they see you disrobe the smell and stench of vomit will permeate the airport terminal Herr Goebbels Dumb Bunny.

94. Roger Rabbit spews:

Of course, Republicans will demand tort immunity. Legal immunity in conjunction with a free hand to invade your privacy, violate your legal rights, and take away your property and dignity is the essence of Republicanism.

For example, those trigger-happy Blackwater guards getting away with the murder of 17 Iraqi civilians is a cause for celebration by the likes of pudpacker.

To the Person Playing Puddybud @ 86,

“Why the fuck should Puddy react to you when your side says worse shit every day on this blog?”

I don’t think Puddy should react to anything. Puddy is a role-playing character that, apparently, allows you to escape the commitments of your personal and religious philosophy. You know—commitments like not to lie.

This blog, on the other hand, was developed as a place for real humans (not characters) and, specifically, for liberals.

“So everything coming from an HA libtardo is full psychobabble, but but gets a pass from da professor because he blindly turns away from their psychobabble.”

I’m sorry…your babbling didn’t really make any sense.

“The ACLU is against those full body scanners.”

Perhaps.

“The full body scanners would have caught the dingaling underwear bomber.”

Perhaps.

“They hate the US PERIOD!”

Here, again, your character seem to be engaging in the torture of rationality (i.e. a logical fallacy). Here is the form:

A disagrees with policy X. Policy X could prevent event B. A hates entity D.

108. Empty Suit Obama spews:

What is amusing is the curent OJT president is afraid to use the word “terrorism” or even fathom that such a thing exists.

Lil’ Empty Suit Dumbass,

“Limbaugh invented that word over 15 years ago and seeing you use it is hilarious.”

Huh…Richard Rosen would be mighty surprised at that claim. (*Snicker!*)

“Like I said, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery…”

And like I said, when you make shit up, it is easy to be self-amused.

“…Rush, I’m sure, is smiling somewhere in Hawaii knowing that.”

Agreed. The question is…is it just the Oxycontin talking?

111. Puddybud Remembers Progressives Forget spews:

Yep all the commentary of Herr Goebbels Dumb Bunny today like yesterday and the day before is BULLSHIT!

112. Empty Suit Obama spews:

Huh…Richard Rosen would be mighty surprised at that claim. (*Snicker!*)

Truth be told, Darryl had never heard of Richard Rosen until he used Google today, nor had I. The fact remains that Darryl was using a word reincarnated in our modern day lexicon by Rush Limbaugh. I don’t expect Darryl to admit as much, but at least he knows deep down inside (where his integrity lies) he wasn’t imitating Mr. Rosen by referencing the word.

Am I correct, Darryl?

113. Puddybud Remembers Progressives Forget spews:

Here Herr Goebbels Dumb Bunny. It was your side who continually complained to the world about the supposedly overly restrictive military detention rules of Gitmo. It was your side in trying to destroy the Bush Administration year after year whipped up a frenzy over Gitmo.

“American officials agreed to send the two terrorists from Guantanamo to Saudi Arabia where they entered into an “art therapy rehabilitation program” and were set free, according to U.S. and Saudi officials.” They were probably goat herders so Herr Goebbels Dumb Bunny could relate to their occupation.

114. Steve spews:

@101 Puddy is a role-playing character that

Speaking of role-playing, Darryl’s been accused of that in the classroom!

According to one of the popular online rating systems, RankMyProfessor, he ranks dead last in terms of overall quality in the UW Anthropology Dept. Out of 44 faculty listed, 37 have been rated by students. As to Darryl’s common retort that the rankings are from disgruntled students, 12 of the 37 receive scores above 4 (out of 5 possible), which should put that tired -and self-serving – excuse to rest. The high score: 4.9. The low: 1.3 (Darryl’s). The mean: 3.46. Indeed, only two faculty receive scores below 2. Here’s what the students have to say:

he’s a little lazy
makes students do much of the grunt work
he tends to be a little obscure
he’s an easy grader
I learned little to nothing
Dr. Holman frequently was unprepared
often ended class early
completely unorganized
didn’t have lectures prepared
made students feel stupid when they didn’t udnerstan
d

Now it may be that Darryl has his own evals that contradict these results, but thus far – despite having stated at one time that he thought the UW should make student evals public – he’s refused to share this data. Most curious response . . .

And for this students earn a rate increase!

115. Darryl spews:

Person Playing Puddybud @ 109,

“Show me a real human. SJ could pass for one. GBS is almost human. There are many sub-humans and a few who identify with simians.”

By “me”, I take it you are now decloaking. While Puddybud could make such an absurd statement (because he can, apparently, say almost anything without consequence), you (i.e. the person who plays Puddy) shouldn’t stoop to such dishonesty.

“You seldom if ever correct the lies, innuendos and half-truths of your side.”

So?

“WTF? They have stated it since day one.”

I don’t doubt it. (But, given your character’s penchant for lying, I would verify it before stating it as fact.)

“And this fool thinks Puddy is delusional.”

Not following your connection. My statement “perhaps” was not a disagreement with your character’s claim about the ACLU.

“WTF? The peeps you jockstrap have already said it would have.”

Again, the word “perhaps” isn’t a substantive disagreement with your statement. It does acknowledge the fact that all assays have some rate of false negatives.

“Nope you dope! Common sense.”

In other words, your conclusion, while disguised as a logical argument was, in fact, simply your character’s preconceived conclusion.

“Why, this one gets under the HA Libtardos with truths provided from leftwing MSM and whackamole sites everyday.”

Most people ’round here who haven’t had the pleasure of meeting you in person or who believe that Puddybud is real firmly believes that Puddybud suffers from serious psycho-pathologies.

You are incorrect. I’ve used the word “psychobabble” long before Rush was a Hate Talker.

You’re lying again, Darryl. And exactly where can you find examples of Limbaugh being a “hate talker”? Just because he makes fun of liberals and exposes their hypocrisy doesn’t exactly add up to “hate” except in the mind of some really thin-skinned liberal types like yourself.

O. M. G. The WSJ actually published an intelligent and well-thought-out editorial:

Contrary to the nugget thinkers who see every Umar Farouk as a security failure, the fact that terrorists are reduced to smuggling explosive materials on-board in their underwear, without the casings and detonators that make for an efficient explosion, is proof of our success in deterring them from even trying to board with a capable bomb.

The correct response to terrorists is not the chicken-little response we see from the land of wingnuttia. The correct response is a collective and whole-hearted “Fuck You,” in which we proceed on with our lives.

Yes, terrorists want to kill us all off, but that desire of theirs is no different than the desire many of us might have to own a Mercedes Benz. Merely having the desire to do something doesn’t convey the ability to carry it out, and Islamic Terrorists are not an existential threat to the United States. To act as if they are an existential threat is to do precisely what those terrorists want us to do.

146. Don Joe spews:

Yet another data point in support of the notion that calling Republicans “terrorists” is no longer hyperbole:

Research has shown that a terrorist attack conducted shortly before an election increases the vote in that area for right-wing Israeli parties by 1.35 percentage points. That may seem small, but in Israel’s fractured system, a few terrorist attacks in the months leading up to an election are often enough to propel the conservative parties to victory.

The dynamic isn’t any different in the United States. There is a symbiotic relationship between terrorism and the political fortunes of right-wing parties. And that relationship is a direct consequence of the manner in which right-wing parties exploit terrorist activities for partisan political gain.

In short, Republicans are terrorists.
