No, that's different, he's making fun of rednecks and the type of Christianity common amongst them. I don't have a problem with Family Guy making fun of conservative Christians of course, and the way they did it with the abstinence only promoters in "Prick Up Your Ears" was great (it also gave one of my favorite quotes on the show when Peter said "No Lois, we can't have sex, sex turns straight people gay, and gay people into Mexicans. Everyone goes down a notch.") The problem is when he does just straight up Christian bashing ala "Not All Dogs Go To Heaven" and a few cutaways that doesn't even TRY to be funny, it's just "haha, we're bashing Christians and therefore that's funny!" just like South Park's "OMG someone just said something "shocking" and "offensive", we're so edgy, this is funny!" crap that it relies on constantly. But luckily that's a pretty low portion of Family Guy's output.

I don't know why, but for some reason he stands out amongst all the utterly terrible 2012 trolls. Maybe for just how utterly terrible he was, or for the amusing way he literally quit posting right after election day. Or that he was responsible for this "gem", which might be one of the 10 worst posts in Atlas history:

Obama leads Romney among single, shrill 18-40 women...why? Romney is handsome, been in a wonderful marriage since the 60's, consistent, kind, a tremendous earner, husband and father

in short...the 18-40 crowd hate that. They like a philandering bad boy (Clinton) who's a little bid dangerous, or somebody who is exotic like Obama who feel as though he's being oppressed by his nasty, domineering wife Michelle.

Married women who "get it" are with Romney. The young single entitled psychopaths are with Obama

Oh and if you had mercifully forgotten about him sorry, I realize it's probably better that way.

Seth MacFarlane is basically never stupid (Well The Cleveland Show was but he probably had virtually no actual creative input on it), the only time he is is when he's bashing Christians. That show on the other hand was exactly the type of juvenile mind-numbing "humor" you'd find on South Park. For example at the same time didn't South Park do an episode about Hillary Clinton having a nuclear weapon in her vagina? Yeah that's exactly the type of stupid crap you'd see on this show. Two peas in a pod, idiotic shows, one right-wing, one right-wing bashing (I hesitate to call anything as dumb and often misogynistic as Lil' Bush "left-wing")

The answer is probably technically "yes", in that he'll play around with it for about 10 minutes, then remember a football game is on or decide to go to Braum's, and then never touch it ever again.

It was nothing like Seth MacFarlane. Where were the tons of cutaways?

More like someone as stupid as the South Park morons but liberal making a show. Hell Cheney was basically a ripoff of Kenny (both unintelligible to the audience but not characters)

One of the stupidest TV shows ever. In fact it and Mind of Mencia meant there was a period in South Park's history when it had competition for the stupidest show on Comedy Central.

Perhaps the worst thing about it is that it was released at a time when there was NOTHING edgy about Bush bashing at all. A show like that is only effective if released at a time when Bush wasn't a complete laughingstock.

I'm surprised BTRD hasn't been mentioned yet.

I don't make outlandish predictions. You never saw me predicting Obama was going to win Georgia or that Alison Grimes or Amanda Curtis is going to win or anything like that.

That may be true (IDK, honestly), but your worldview seems incredibly hackish.  You seem to see almost everything with an element that is even tangentially connected to politics through the prism of hackish absolutism (pro-Democrat = good, any other point of view = horrible).  One of the most obvious examples of this is your argument that Family Guy is a great show (regardless of its merits) because it makes fun of tea-partiers while South Park is a horrible show (regardless of its merits) because it can be critical of unions (most of whom are generally reliabely Democratic interest groups).  In other words, you consciously seek to indulge your massive confirmation bias.

Another example is how you hate all Green Party candidates, regardless of their individual merits, simply because Ralph Nader ran as a Green Party candidate in 2000 and some have claimed he cost Gore Florida (never mind that the party refused to nominate Nader in 2004, encouraged Greens in competitive states to vote for Kerry, that Nader only mattered in 2000 because Gore ran a pretty crappy campaign, and that he was hardly the main reason Bush was declared the winner in Florida). This sort of proudly ultra-partisan worldview is a type of hackery IMO; a different type of hackery than the type we'd see from an InvisibleObama or a JJ, but definitely hackery.

I'm also not sure that Krazen and KCDem should be considered hacks since in both cases, there is good reason to think they are trolls who don't really believe a lot of what they say here.  Krazen is pretty right-wing on RedRacingHorses, but the difference between Krazen here and Krazen there is the difference between Glenn Beck on CNN and on Fox.  From the posts I've seen, he appears far more restrained there (though I admittedly haven't seen a huge number of his posts there) which suggests he is merely performing for attention here.  Krazen may really be a racist and a hack, but there's little reason to assume the tone of his posts is anything but a performance.  

As for KCDem, he may or may not be a sock, but at best he's a lurker who saw how much attention Krazen was getting and wanted to get in on the action, so to speak.  At worst, he's the sock of someone who decided to be a pseudo-Krazen; although I initially thought this was the case, I'm increasingly of the opinion that he's just an attention seeking ex-lurker.  In any event, I would differentiate between genuine hacks and trolls who adopt an OTT hackish persona in their quest for attention.

But I think Family Guy is funny. Now compare to Lil' Bush, that awful anti-Bush show near the end of his Presidency. I thought it was unfunny crap. Conversely even if apolitical South Park would still be completely unfunny garbage.

And there's plenty of reasons to hate Nader besides the 2000 election. His personality is pretty terrifying.

How much is Bushie's cable package? I don't have one now but in college mine was about $30/month. $175 in discounts means it's over $175, geez.

I have zero actual knowledge of the CADD industry, but from the way Bushie describes things, it seems standard to hire just about anybody temporarily on a 3 month trial. It doesn't sound like a usual job hire, where they make damn sure you're the right person before they offer you the job. I can see the advantages of doing things this way. It's not so crazy. And it's nice that it offers more people a chance to get a foot in the door than might be the case otherwise. Problem is, the Bushie family have a 1957 perspective on it, where "you're hired" means something very different than what is really the case. Bushie, they've allowed you an audition. Nothing more. Don't screw it up.

That's not uncommon today. Call centers tend to do it too which is why Bushie keeps getting hired at them despite how obviously wrong for it he is.

I'll give Bushie an undeserved benefit of the doubt but I wouldn't be willing to bet a dime on him still being employed here at the end of the year.

74  Forum Community / Forum Community / Sleep problem, is this what's going on? on: October 21, 2014, 10:11:15 pm
The last six months thanks to some shakeups at work, I ended up with a (for me) absolutely hellish schedule that required me to get up way earlier than I'm used to. Plenty wouldn't mind or would even like it, but I'm not a morning person. Mercifully this ended last week and I now have a schedule where I don't have to go in until 11:30AM, and I was able to catch up on sleep. However I'm still feeling tired a lot, even after 8 hours. I have a theory that I racked up too much of a sleep defecit the last six months and it's going to take awhile to even out. Even during that time I was sleeping in quite a bit on weekends but wasn't feeling fully awake or refreshed, then there was my little Chicago trip. So is this something where I'll have to just adjust over the next couple weeks instead of just sleeping in a little bit now?

Speaking of downballot greenies, should I vote Green or Working Families (i.e. Democrat) for Comptroller? I'm not even entirely sure what the Comptroller's job is. Obviously I'll be voting Hawkins for Governor and Schneiderman is and has been fantastic so I'll be voting WFP for AG.

A State Comptroller is basically the head of the state's finances and in charge of overseeing accounting and reporting. Go Democratic/WF.
