RosettaStoned: "Imma Nazi blah blah blah fascism"
Forum: *yawn*

RosettaStoned "Game of Thrones spoilerz!"
Forum: "HOW DARE YOU SAY THIS HORRIBLE THING BAN NOW PLZ"

The level of reaction on the forum to his various flavors of trolling has been... revealing, shall we say.

But, yeah, horrible poster, horrible person, unlike AD or Obamanation or any of the other popular recent targets he actually does deserve a ban... just wish people cared more about his Naziism than about their HBO shows.

I've seen literally none of his 'Nazi' posts, though.  I'm sure I'm not alone on that.

Good call on the edit, Ernest.  We don't want the jailed mass murderer to call Dave on copyright infringement.

Ah, got it.  I'll keep that in mind if anybody ever actually stabs me.  "It's okay Officer, he obviously wasn't trying to kill me!"

Oh that's right, I remember now that he "wasn't sure" if he'd actually stab me or not.  Roll Eyes
7  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: The GOP War on Women - The Megathread on: Today at 01:17:29 am
The William 'Lord Haw-Haw' Joyce of this war chimes in...

    Another fact is the influence of hypergamy, which means that women typically choose a mate (husband or boyfriend) who earns more than she does. Men don’t have the same preference for a higher-earning mate.

    While women prefer to HAVE a higher-earning partner, men generally prefer to BE the higher-earning partner in a relationship. This simple but profound difference between the sexes has powerful consequences for the so-called pay gap.

    Suppose the pay gap between men and women were magically eliminated. If that happened, simple arithmetic suggests that half of women would be unable to find what they regard as a suitable mate.

    Obviously, I’m not saying women won’t date or marry a lower-earning men, only that they probably prefer not to. If a higher-earning man is not available, many women are more likely not to marry at all. [...]

    The best way to improve economic prospects for women is to improve job prospects for the men in their lives, even if that means increasing the so-called pay gap.

Yeah, don't care for him.
Off topic, but did Teddy actually threaten to kill somebody?? Yikes!!!

Terribly off topic, and no, he did not.

Uh, yes he did.

It kinda did look staged. If something is being thrown at you and you don't know, why would you just stay on stage...

Not everybody would instantly assume that a projectile being thrown at you is a grenade or something.

Let's just say that one of Boehner's longshot opponents just put out an ad approximately 85 times more awesome than that wet fart of an ad:

Bernie Sanders is not a Democrat. Duh!

He could always run in a Democratic primary any time he wants, though.

It seemed like Oberyn Martell and Loras Tyrell were in on it for sure.

It just looked to me like they were checking each other out.

Well, at least Ernest has one fan.  So there's that.

Evolution doesn't explain:
Domesticated animals
Selective breeding
Genetically-modified organisms
Artificially synthesized organisms (man-made life)
Clones

If you only accept evolution, you're embracing an intellectually bankrupt form of reactionary secularism. Every day, millions of people are working to genetically-alter the physical world. They are not agents of evolution. They are sentient beings deliberately changing the world around them to achieve an outcome that is often in opposition to the evolutionary status quo and entropy.

What religious deception is required for someone to contemplate the possibility that creativity and consciousness existed before human beings? 

There is no rational argument against it.

There is no rational argument for SSM. Marriage is just regulations imposed on people who might seek monogamous sexual reproduction. Couples do not need to be married to express love or to be happy or to be sexually gratified.

Lack of marriage privileges for same-sex couples is a calamity because marriage also grants special socio-economic privileges. If you look at the income data, the only family demographic that earns more than median household income is dual income married couples. The current system screws all unmarried people to protect the sanctity of "traditional" single-income married households.

I'm empathetic to the plight of gay couples, but SSM does not fix the problem nor does it represent civil rights victory. It is a silly politically-indulgent skirmish for small-minded people who are eager to avoid dealing with our real problems.

Actually, the Congressional GOP are acting like anorexics.

Every fat child who's denied cake thinks he's being starved to death.

Medicaid, Medicare, Social Security, Welfare, SNAP, and so forth are mainly pure fat. About 20% of our economy is pure fat, depending on the social spending habits of the state in question. We've been converting economic muscle to fat for decades, and now our economy requires constant stimulus to produce the output and public funding we require. The economic forecast for federal spending suggests we will be morbidly obese in about 1 decade, as we continue converting economic muscle into entitlement pork.

Explaining government nutritional science to American liberals is like trying to fell Ironbark with a dull spoon. Of course liberals think Republicans are anorexics. Anyone who stands between them and the buffet is fascist pig, who hates women, minorities, and social justice. Meanwhile, in the real world, the US economy is still slumping along, which is not what the rest of the world expected when they promised not to devalue their currencies.

Even fundamentalists can't be that stupid, can they?

Your question answers itself.

Even Joe can recognize a rhetorical question, can't he?

Ugh.  Your sense of humor usually falls into two categories: non-existent, and awkward elderly eccentric.  Forgive me for temporarily assuming the former was the case here.

Does anybody else feel like Jaime Lannister is being made into a more sympathetic character?  I'm not sure if losing his hand and his travels with Brienne were meant to actually improve him as a person, but some of us will never forget that he pushed Bran Stark out of a window.  Angry

Getting rid of the EC would be unfair to states like Wyoming & Vermont.

It wouldn't make any difference.  Presidential candidates already ignore both of those states now, and would continue to do so without the EC.

A standard liberal on the correct side of most issues I've seen him comment on, but is deeply religious as well which I find rather strange, and quaint in 2014.

I believe that is the case.  Tommen is the boy's name and the new actor playing him looks a LOT like the kid that played Joffrey.

edit-but Tommen is too young so Cersi will be in charge again.

Actually Tywin would be in charge. He's the Hand of the King, and unlike with Tyrion she can't really maintain any semblance of real power so long as he's in control.

Cersei was the Queen Regent throughout Joffrey's reign, meaning that she was effectively the monarch until Joffrey's wedding graduated him into adulthood.  This development makes her the Queen Regent again.

But yes, Tywin is still very much the actual power.

There's no reason a state should have a state book to begin with.

Amen!  We have a proliferation of useless state symbols, especially here in South Carolina.

From the animal kingdom alone we have besides the state animal, the white-tailed deer, a state amphibian, a state bird, a state game bird, a state duck, a state butterfly, a state dog, a state fish, a state heritage horse, a state heritage work animal, a state insect, a state marine mammal, a state migratory marine mammal, a state reptile, and a state spider!

Somehow we are one of the few states without an official state fossil (unless one counts Strom Thurmond).

Funny you should chime in...  This article is from only two weeks ago:

(Reuters) - An 8-year-old South Carolina girl's dream of having the woolly mammoth become the official state fossil has been put on hold while lawmakers debate an amendment that gives God credit for creation of the prehistoric animal.

A bill that recently passed the state House to designate the Columbian Mammoth as the state fossil stalled in the Senate after Republican Senator Kevin Bryant added two verses from the book of Genesis.

That amendment was ruled out of order but senators this week will debate a new amendment that says the mammoth was "created on the sixth day along with the beasts of the field," Bryant said on Monday.

"I just had a notion that we ought to consider acknowledging the creator as we acknowledge one of his creations," Bryant said.
