EDIT: It DID actually warm my heart today to see one of them have Bandit Keith plastered all over their desktop background... in America!

weeeeeeell one side just spent the last 10 years haphazardly dismantling everything worthwhile that our nation stands for so they would no longer need to be the slightest bit apprehensive about publicly baring their naked greed and hatred

Nor, did the Reds personally do something to you, or do you just feel it that necessary to get worked up about shit that they're already paying for with pretty much the entire structure of their organization?

... mock them into enlightenment, which is easy to do because their primitive hindbrains instinctively respond to images of Democratic presidents with fits of uncontrollable rage.

A fine result to inflict on those who ridicule. If my posting of images and listings of political success actually disappointed you, then you would have loved my original plan of posting donkeys deep dicking elephants, cum and anal fluids MSPaint'd in.


Anyone who doesn't respect my opinion for what it is, can go get fucked and they can tell me to go get fucked if I do the same to them.

Dohl is seeking advice beyond telling the entirety of his fellow workforce to get fucked.


Always kills me how polarized thiings are down there. Geez.

After witnessing the culture wars of the late 20th century boil over into rewarding the world at large with death and decay, partisanship has proven to be a fine elixir these past two years.


We could always ask Arc to ban the ips of Dohl's workplace

Yes, a hostname or even IP would be grand.

Is it possible to ban an IP range unless they've got a cookie for a specific account, so Dohl can keep at it?

Do you understand how terrifying the words “vibrating strap on” are for an asexual? That’s like saying “the holocaust” to a Jew.

Leave it to Department of Transportation to actually ANSWER a clearly rhetorical question that was clearly directed at the thread starter in the first place...
They didn't really strike me as rhetorical as a few of them were plausible motives that also had an unknown answer, i.e. the opposite of a rhetorical question. Turns out your crazy theory was right anyway. Making my point moot.

Always kills me how polarized thiings are down there. Geez.

What do you expect from a two-party system.  Being in the middle on one thing means you have to give away another thing that's important to you.

That's more a consequence of the First Past the Post system than a unique thing to the U.S. It's not like people expect the New Democrats or Liberal Democrats to actually win. Even the proportional representation of the German system is dominated by two opposing left and right blocs; although the smaller parties are listened to more often due to crazy coalitions.

I don't know, I wouldn't say we're nearly as polarized here. In fact, I don't have the article handy (I posted it here long ago), but Canada actually has the lowest level of party loyalty of any western democracy.

I like that JUST FINE.

...haven't read much past page 1, but I find that the "All politicians are crooks" angle is a good way of finding middle ground.

Also, the crazier a thing someone says, the worse an idea it is to try and argue with it.  Reasonable people can discuss differing points of view; people who believe Clinton was responsible for a series of secret murders cannot be reasoned with.

In case of emergency, find a way to change the subject to boobs.

All's I'm saying, Arc, is that if conservatives you know are angered by mere images of Obama, then you need to find some better conservatives.

Putting all her other bullshit aside, the "I have Christian morals which obviously falls more into a republican category" comment bugs the fucking shit out of me.

Not because she said it. I don't care about one person. The problem is I see that shit from reds all the time. It's like liberals lack morals. Or Christian morals, anyway. They are literally painting liberals as "not moral" which is the start of a really fun road that leads to thinking those who are not like you are evil.

(We'll ignore the fact that there are like 2 hundred trillion liberal Christians and just focus on the "painting the other side as lacking morals/evil aspect)

Fuck, nevermind. After re-watching her video, I realize she's right about everything and I was wrong about everything.

I mean, there's loans.

Shit, I'm taking out some loans, you know

Eh, I hear the same thing from the left all the time, usually about how if conservatives really cared about Christian values they'd be focusing on ending the war and feeding the hungry.

Anyone remember or have a link to that video about the psychological that linked respect for authority and purity with conservativism and empathy and  willingness to try new things with liberalism?

There are two sides to everything, including good and evil.  That's why you have those little dots in the tajitu.

We could have 3 sides to everything or more if we go with the D&D alignment system.

In fairness, liberalism and secularism are (incorrectly) associated in the broad delineation of political domains, just as social conservatism is often argued for using Christian rhetoric.
