You know...God punishes trolls....
No, Princess Trollestia doesn't.
Now we just need to have a theological argument over whether that's a true Revelation of Her personality, or whether the Celestiaists have it right.

And remember, according to cybertroll it is illogical to disbelieve in either's existence unless you can absolutely and positively disprove every single arbitrary explanation that either's definition can even inconceivably be manipulated into fitting.

Yay ponies!

Well, I am building a Time machine and moving to the year 5,000 B.C. Later suckers.
LOL Might wanna think about that. 5,000 B.C. means subsistence-level farming, and you know what that means . . .

No fat chick porn!

Don't be so cynical. There's always going to be morons.

Especially around here.
I'm cynical when there's good reason for it. Yes there are always going to be morons, but that doesn't mean there's no value in calling them out as such from time to time.

I also think anyone who votes for either Romney or Obama this November is a moron.

... Romney can't find his way to a consistent viewpoint on his breakfast order, much less affairs of state. ...
That's the best example of hyperbole you can offer for Romney? That's totally comparable to the Kenyan Marxist Socialist Post Turtle.

No, it's just one that came to mind right away. Feel free to offer more examples.

I'd rather see you try to come up with a single mainstream Romney hyperbole that compares with the shit that gets flung at Obama. :colbert:

You can't do both? Not sure why you think it would satisfy me to prove me wrong. :hmm:
I could, but that would require me wanting to do both. I want to drink my coffee; I don't want to satisfy you. Satisfy you meaning "do what you ask".

I've got an exception for your Libertarian count:
Except if you're black and want to buy food in Mississippi.
You might have a point except for the fact that businesses were allowed to refuse service to black people in the past in Mississippi. I do not seem to remember black people starving to death. Given the number of black people in Mississippi I think it is safe to assume they did not.

Really? After half an hour you still can't think of a single comparable example? Well, I am satified. Thanks. :thumbsup:

MS is also #2 in the nation for highest obesity.

The topic was freedom. I didn't say they couldn't find any food. They just wouldn't be free to buy food from any store they choose.

They would be good trades, to be honest.


Sorry about the OT movement, back to the topic.

There is an old saying, if you do not stand for something, you will fall for anything.

Since our elected officials try to please everyone, they are falling for everything.

The US government does not have the fortitude to stand up and do what needs to be done. The fear of hurting someones feelings has castrated the government.

Its not Romney/Ryan or Obama/Biden that is the problem, its the political-correctness that has infected this nation that is the problem.
We have a near majority of people in this country that live off of the government, government employees and those dependent on government. We have an increasing number of people with no knowledge of history. As you rightly point out, we have an increasing number of people that believe they have a right to not be offended, that no one is allowed to tell them something that they don't like. We have an increasing number of people that have no knowledge of how our government was set up and is supposed to work. We have an increasing number of people that think the government should be influential in running people's lives. We have an increasing number of people who think elections are like American Idol or prom queen contest.

In the end, we get the government we deserve.

My guess is that folk's with neurologically conservative brains are the ones feeling a pox on both your houses right about now. They can't think like progressives so see nothing there but are disappointed by what has happened to more moderate conservative thinking.

The human race from time immemorial has been propelled into the future by a tiny minority of progressives who create new visions of reality and new vistas of the soul to explore. It's the same now. There is a new consciousness growing in the world today, the realization that all of us are the same. The world's IQ is increasing and violence is on the decline. Humanity is slowly awakening. Abandon your negative thinking and rejoice. All your fears have already happened when you were a child. Everything you fear is a delusion you were taught to believe. The warmth folks felt 5000 years ago from the sun on their skin, is the identical warmth you can feel today. There is no time, no age, no epoch, no era, when love IS. There is only the infinite joy of being. The same door that Christ walked through is open to you. We have so little faith, we who believe in lies.

I can.. but I'm not going to give you the satisfaction of sharing it. You're being a dick, so no.. I'm not going to indulge you.

Stop making it seem like you're butthurt because Obama is attacked more and has more hyperbole about him than Romney does.
