Spend less time trying to remember what my avatar looked like five years ago, and more time concentrating on where it all went wrong in your life.

GWB supporter?  Don't ever insult me like that again.

And the blue avatar was strictly a representation of my temporarily registering with your party so I could be a tourist at their hilarious amateur hour clusterf[Inks] of the 2012 NV caucuses.

I just got insulted by a guy from a state where their biggest city elected a crack smoking Mayor and another guy whose country got invaded in six hours.

Neither of these are factually accurate.

What's the likelihood Teachout wins the WFP endorsement, along with their ballot line in November?

Don't worry guys he'll be replacing those microwaved pizza rolls with grilled pizza rolls soon enough. That's what healthy eating is, right?

Correction: He plans to maybe start thinking about potentially doing that at 1730 on May 14th, 2015, or possibly 2016 if that is what God has planned for him.

I think Jeff might be a supertaster. It's common for people who have a heightened sense of taste to find ordinary bitter foods to be unpleasant. I saw on television once a guy who had eaten only French fries for decades because all other food made him nauseous... They diagnosed him as a supertaster.

Great, another 'disability' he can add to the collection!
12  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Here's a handy list of what's been crossing the US border from Mexico recently on: August 23, 2014, 08:13:09 pm
... according to the GOP, that is.


• ISIS

It’s a “very real possibility” that individuals with the extremist group ISIS may have crossed into the United States at the southern border, Texas Gov. Rick Perry said Thursday, though he added he doesn’t have any evidence.

Because the border is insecure, Perry said that “individuals from ISIS or other terrorist states could be” taking advantage of the situation. “I think it's a very real possibility that they may have already used that,” he told an audience at the Heritage Foundation in Washington.

“We have no clear evidence of that,” he continued.


• Ebola

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) warned this week that refugees — who he called “undocumented Democrats” — fleeing violence in Central America could be bringing diseases like Ebola into the United States.

“This administration doesn’t have the desire, doesn’t have the will to actually stop it,” Gohmert told radio host Tim Constantine on Wednesday. “Because they see people coming across as undocumented Democrats. And so, they want to keep the surge of people coming in illegally, even though it includes a big spike in Other-Than-Mexicans, OTMs as we call them.”

“It includes a spike in people from countries where terrorism abounds,” he continued. “We have people coming in from countries where Ebola is located.”

“And, gee, since they’re coming across our border, and you know, they don’t get checked, and most of them don’t get really thoroughly checked, they could be coming in with disease that we simply do not need.”


• Child soldiers trained to bring down our government

A Republican official in Iowa urged Americans not to compare child migrants to their own children but to instead consider them dangerous threats.

Tamara Scott, a Republican National Committeewoman and state director of Concerned Women for America, made the comments Thursday on her weekly radio show, reported Right Wing Watch.

“When we see these kids, you and I think young kids, we think maybe 12-year-olds, maybe homeschoolers — excuse me, middle-schoolers,” Scott said.

“But we know back in our revolution, we had 12-year-olds fighting in our revolution, and for many of these kids, depending on where they’re coming from, they could be coming from other countries and be highly trained as warriors who will meet up with their group here and actually rise up against us as Americans,” she continued.

I've been in a similar situation on this forum, but I didn't apologize.

Yeah but you're not a real poster so it didn't matter either way.

Yeah, you guys are totally Kevin Bacon in Footloose.

But replace dancing with talking about hiring underage prostitutes and making fun of overweight rednecks with learning disabilities.  Otherwise totally the same.

Incidentally, I now find the name Kyle to be synonymous with making online sockpuppets and being a manipulative liar.
20  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: So where's the Ask Simfan thread gone? on: August 23, 2014, 10:03:07 am
I find it concerning that Simfan apparently thinks we're all idiots with amnesia or something.  He deactivated the fake FB account after it was exposed last time, and he eventually owned up to it (after some theatric thrashing around).  Then he quietly reactivated the fake account some time later, and as of yesterday had returned to claiming it was a real person he was friends with.

What a thoroughly strange individual.
21  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: So where's the Ask Simfan thread gone? on: August 23, 2014, 09:02:25 am
Just going to enter into the Deluge the following chain of events from earlier today, as it seems like the best place for it:

1. Simfan revives an old FC thread of his to refashion it as an 'Ask Simfan' topic.
2. Oakvale asks him why he was pretending to be a white guy from Michigan on Facebook.
3. Simfan now denies that that was him, and that it was a friend of his that my 'stalking' had unfortunately drawn unwelcome attention to.
4. I pointed out that he had already admitted to creating the fake FB account already some time ago, and was therefore now backtracking his prior confession with a fresh lie.  I added that Simfan is, generally speaking, the strangest person when it comes to getting caught out doing something he shouldn't.
5. Simfan promptly deletes the entire thread.  Thus proving my last sentence in Point #4.

Most (swing) voters don't know/care what their congressperson's voting record looks like.  Many of them don't even know their name.  All they know is [Democratic] or [Republican] next to their name on the ballot.

Normally I hate viral fads as much as anybody, but:





That's right, the ALS Foundation has raised nearly 36% of the money they raised in all of 2013, in just three weeks this summer.

So frankly, the nay-sayers can suck it.
