Sedentary, and proud to be.

Why would someone be proud of that? Tongue

I am proud because I'm free from the totalitarian dominance exerted by the "fitness" dogma and by the absurd cannons of modern society. Because I'm not brainwashed into doing something painful and time-consuming simply because the society tells me it is a good thing to do. Because I'm fine with my current body and I don't feel the need for an overly muscular one, especially if the price to pay for it is daily torture.

Being free from totalitarian dominance will not help you get girls.

You're cheating.

The percent swing toward either Barrett or Walker in tonight's election. I apologize for not using strict atlas colours or for using sharper colours to illustrate a contrast.


There really wasn't a strong swing in either direction for either candidate, which matches the meager 1% shift from 2010.

Note the distinct pattern of the shorter the bus ride from out of state the closer to the border the greater swing towards the Democrat.

BRTD doubles down on his criticism of a kindergarten TV show as "repetitive" and "for idiots" with his championing of a show marketed at preteen girls:

Can we get this out once and for all? Why the Hell are people watching "My Little Pony", ironically or not? What the Hell has happened to this world?

Maybe because it's a well-written and funny show with solid animation and production values and good well-developed characters? Kind of the polar opposite of South Park in fact...

Most people don't watch the show "ironically", and I suspect dead0man's daughter really just appreciates it for being as good as it is, but is too embarrassed to admit otherwise.

To be fair, they haven't been resolved any further in the past three decades.

Republicans praying America fails? 

Democrats SALIVATED every time a soldier was killed in Iraq in 2004-2007 hoping it would hurt George Bush. It was disgusting

Well, yes, the Democrats don't care about middle class people, and especially middle class whites.

Lots of people don't  need to be taken care of, but the government seems to do so anyway. That creates resentment, and thankfully, the massive exodus of whites from the Democratic party due to the war on whites.


A state like Wisconsin is populated by a majority of non college whites who just voted in a landslide for Scott Walker because he shares their values.

Of course not. Any post criticizing the Republican party belongs in the Good Post Gallery. I'm not saying that because I'm a hack, but because my college education informs me that this is an objective fact.

Funny how you have ignored the second part of the sentence (after the comma) which is utterly ludicrous.

Democrats on here say the Republicans don't care about blacks all the time. And it is a fairly standard idea in political science and political economy that parties only care about those who vote for them. I generally find few things to be as ridiculous as quoting posts into this thread though, so that's my bias.

There are plenty of middle class whites that vote Democratic, certainly not the same for black Republicans.

The absurdity is moreso the implication that Republicans DO care about the middle class and the context of the post (check out the thread, it has nothing to do with policies affecting the middle class.)

The person who says "Trust me!" almost never merits trust.

"You'll love this cream-puff!", says the used-car salesman who gets a special bonus for selling a used car worth only the value of scrap metal.

"I have no further territorial demands", says the sabre-rattling practitioner of diplomatic bullying.

"We will honor political pluralism, civil liberties, and legal niceties", says the extremist demagogue.

"I am God's gift to women", says the 'gentleman' rapist.

"I want to be your Special Friend", says a child molester.

"This is a special opportunity available only to you", says the swindler.

The next two words are usually "Trust me!" 

Granted, it's not absurd to make fun of Mitt Romney, but the way he did it...

I'll be happy the Occupy movement exists. Do you honestly think Occupy is going to tolerate this?

The Defecating Rapists won't do anything that upsets their Wall Street backers.

Relieved that I can finally complain again about how dumb US Americans are. Wink
There's a reason why Democrats hate and fear intelligence tests for voting.

Wow.

I don't blame you for not knowing -- because you probably trust the MSM and it will never tell you this -- but the Democrats have a lock on the high school dropout vote.  In America, the dumber you are the more likely you are to vote Democrat.
