Also some people need to understand that it's quite easy in most of the US to file to run for office, and thus crazy people do all the time, and sometimes they even end up with their party's nomination if the primary is extremely low profile because no one cares because no candidate from that party has a chance of winning it. Remember Alvin Greene? Or because they're the only person who filed.

Some guy raving about Obama's birth certificate running in a D+15 seat or a 9/11 truther running in an R+20 seat isn't proof of anything besides this.

Almost always HT. They're only worthwhile if:

1-The comment is actually out there or amusing, not something that's come to be expected. "OMG a random state Rep in Georgia said that Obama probably admires Karl Marx!" for example is quite stupid, but it's also so generic at this point it wouldn't be surprising at all.
2-The OP and people on their side don't try to imply that this represents the entire party in any way or really proves anything aside from that the person being quoted in the OP is an idiot.
3-There isn't an immediate knee-jerk reaction to reply with this:

Stop being hacks guys. Both sides have extremes elected to high office. There's Democratic Secretary of States and State Speaker of the Houses that say crazy things too.

People like _________ and _________ are totally insane. And let's not forget _________. Remember when _________ said _________________?

Part of the reason I quit reading Minnesota Progressive Project is they basically became obsessed with archiving stupid comments from state legislators and local Republican officials instead of Daily Kos style election analysis, and they had to had an entry every time Michele Bachmann said anything even remotely stupid or offensive...so basically every week. I remember trying to read it for some coverage on the Minneapolis mayoral election and seeing all of this crap that I had to wade through to find any entries on it.

Wow BRTD, I never would have guessed that you hated South Park.
ikr!  You'd think BRTD with his libertarian sensibilities would be a big fan of SP.  He really should keep us up to date on which shows he likes, THE FORUM NEEDS TO KNOW DAMN IT!

Wait. Are you actually admitting that South Park is not balanced, is not ever left-wing, and there's no reason any liberal should ever like it?
4  Forum Community / Off-topic Board / Should political satire be "all liberal, all the time"? on: Today at 12:40:35 am
Yes of course. I mean think about it, with all the idiotic garbage said by teabagger conservatives and True Leftist idiots, why on Earth would any political satire have to make fun of liberals? It's mind boggling. Plus I don't like it when satire is making fun of things I like so I really hate it when this happens.

The Daily Show is good but it's more like "mostly liberal 90% of the time". Luckily John Oliver's show seems to fit the bill pretty well so I'm loving that. He's staying away from that "Haha, look at all this really stupid things these Republicans did...oh and by the way here's something stupid from a liberal too" thing Jon Stewart does from time to time that drives me up the wall. I'm hoping now there's an Onion knockoff that's 100% liberal instead of making fun of conservatives 90% of the time and occasionally poking fun at the left like The Onion does.

It's a Horrible Series because:

1-The "honest trailers" are actually nothing like actual trailers. They're more like 3-4 minute (the MPAA doesn't allow trailers over 2 1/2 minutes unless the studio makes a special petition) summaries of the entire movie with ridiculous over the top narration nitpicking the hell out of it...which is also very un-modern trailer-esque (seriously next time you go to a movie count how many of the trailers have voice narration...odds are it'll be none.)
2-They're not particularly "honest" since they nitpick like hell and misrepresent some things about the films.
3-They're almost never funny.

Cinema Sins does a better job of the type of thing.

Translation: They made fun of a movie BTRD likes.

Anyway, huge FS!

Except I said I like Cinema Sins, which obviously has done so too, and I like Family Guy which has made fun of many things I like.

Haven't heard anything about rioting yet tonight. There just seems to be a whole bunch of peaceful protests. Perhaps the worst is over.

Well we had this: http://www.startribune.com/local/minneapolis/283891941.html
11  Forum Community / Forum Community / Opinion of these guys I just saw on: November 25, 2014, 10:50:30 pm
Picked up some groceries tonight, there was a cop near the entrance/exit as is usually the case at this store. Two white hipster-looking guys are leaving. One remarks to the cop while walking out something like "How many blacks you shot today? Met this week's quota yet?", other guy starts laughing and hi fives him as they walk out. Cop basically completely ignored them and gave no response at all.

Got to say FF, sure as f[inks] better than Naso or krazen.

Krazen is actually entertaining, though

No, he's not. Plus he's so repetitive and predictable I usually know exactly his post is going to say before I read it.

Well this church is in a building that's probably around 50 years old tops.

What building in use, in 2014 in Minnesota (or in Austria for that matter) DOESN'T have indoor heating?
16  Forum Community / Off-topic Board / Re: Hoodies vs. fedoras on: November 25, 2014, 11:38:25 am
HOODIES!

For one, hoodies are super comfortable and appropriate for winter days and summer nights.

For two...



Cute girls in hoodies = <3

You know my thread about going to church in a suburb? Well this church didn't have their heating up that much so I kept my hoodie on inside, as did many other people. You know what's even better than cute girls doing that hand raising thing? Cute girls in hoodies doing that hand raising thing.

Family Guy's celebrity references are different.

Family Guy: This is just like the time that *celebrity* did *thing*
*makes joke based on celebrity*

South Park: *celebrity reference* "HA HA THAT'S THE JOKE!"

Basically just like the Friedberg and Seltzer movies.

-The Scott Tenorman one. I watched this one on Netflix out of curiosity because it's so raved about and it's REALLY stupid and not funny at all.
-The "Butt Out" one. Anvilicious and idiotic pro-tobacco propaganda.
-The episode about a nuclear weapon in Hillary Clinton's vagina. Yeah, real mature and not at all sexist guys. Roll Eyes
-The episode that makes fun of Family Guy. It's bad enough to be this stupid, but making fun of a far superior show...
-The one that's full of celebrity references and substitutes "OMG SHOCK VALUE!" for actual jokes and humor.

This guy is really on a roll:

It's actually a common meme amongst the far right- Civil Rights are Slavery because Blacks depend on them to not be enslaved. That dependency is Slavery.

It's not a meme. It's two centuries of party history as well as modern party leadership who remove opportunity and self-determination by trapping under-privileged kids in failing public school districts, while taxing their parents out of the economy to avoid "exploitation" by business.

The only thing worse than the Democratic slavers are the Republicans who allow Democrats to operate with impunity because the GOP is worried about its image. Republicans are going to be called racist no matter what so they might as well get their hands dirty by rebuilding the lower classes.

When I first saw the footage and images, I thought the Democractic Party was holding a campaign rally. Meanwhile, Salt Lake City is peaceful.
