It's funny in a tragic way how the progressive leftoids always disregard or trivialize brutal killings of apostates, (mostly female) adulterers and yes even homosexuals by a huge and growing force to reckon with as long as they can point their finger at somebody who says they think homosexuality is a sin (or evolution should be questioned) but otherwise fully supports the constitution and the same civil rights for everyone. Why would you hate Christians and your Christian ancestors so much that you are ready to excuse anything as long as you can point their finger at them?
I don't hate Christians, or our primitive ancestors. I hate stupidity, or pandering masked as stupidity.
I'm open to the idea that we sprang from the a giant Lotus flower from the Buddha's belly. I don't believe it though because all of our historic, scientific and rational thought indicates that is a silly idea.
Carson believes that religion can exclude a candidate AND claims to believe in the Constitution. He believes in fairy tales as a scientist, and so on. He might've prescribed himself too many oxys, but he appears to be an idiot savant. Socially awkward, crazy, confused but pretty good at a task where he doesn't have to interact with normal people.
Trump took a huge shot at Rand Paul's appearance and fwiw Camile Paglia wrote and article about how several of the male Republicans just didn't look presidential(and it happened to include all that were under 6' tall) as well as Ted Cruz who she was not flattering to at all.
Quick poll: as a joke, I said to some friends the other day that you know some of those GOP candidates are pedophiles. When I asked them to pick the likeliest one, every single one said "Cruz!".
Who would you think is most likely to have perversion in their Republican closet?
I don't want a Christian to be President. They are cannibals, who as a matter of course, eat flesh and drink human blood! They have a long history of oppressing minorities and forced conversions.
They SAY they can separate their religious and public duties, but I don't believe them. Their religious texts clearly say that women are subordinate, to die for their leader, to gouge out your own eyes if you masturbate, and these are the simple ones.
It's all just racist though, like Patrick posited. The vitriole reserved for a man clearly more intelligent, gifted and successful as President than his predecessor is so discordant that it makes the detractors sound more stupider than a stupid guy.
Unless you count for racism, and to a lesser degree, hyper partisanship.
Not so sure I'd like to see that. However I certainly have seen worse ... let it happen then we'll judge.
You have? Is there a 99c strip club I don't know about? :)
There was a strip club a block away from my old place in Chicago. On those nights where you hadn't boozed it up quite enough, we'd go in, pay the cover and have a few more beers.
They had a stripper there who had an Eastern European accent, was built like a tank, and smoked like a chimney. She'd walk up and say, "you vant dense? You vant dense?" Of course, I would politely decline.
I am not sure which of these Gretas I'd want to see naked. I am sure I wouldn't pay for it, might need to be paid for it, or forced to watch like a Kubrick flick.
Just because conservatives are bad at government doesn't mean government has to be bad.
If the government is so god-damn bad at god-damn everything, we should get rid of the military. That's the god-damn biggest part of the government. Does our military suck as much ass as your statement implies?
I was just wondering this. When money goes to a Government employee (or service member), don't they spend it in the larger economy? So the only logic I can think of, is that somehow when a veteran spends it it circulates better than if a DMV employee spends it, which seems ludicrous.
But then, I don't see how Government spending is inherently worse than private sector spending. Perhaps the rightwing can show us? Or do we accept it as a truism like we do that Jeevis was born on Christmas?
And the Democratic Congress of the 80s and Clinton's Presidency gave us the Prison-Industrial Complex, as did many Dem Governors looking to "Be Tough"
Because the GOP had made sensibility and humanity a liability. Theirs was more of an acquiescing (cowardly, sure) than a real party ideal. Most of the worst things of the Dems have been a result of such capitulation.
