The party not in power for the last 6 years is SO !@#$ING POWERFUL they still control the economy. Let us bow before them, lest they are vengeful gods.
Is this The Nation, Der Spiegel or the National Inquirer?
Oh, it's the Guardian. Almost as credible as the Daily Wail.
I had someone challenge me with:
They said: Not sure which is more flawed: the article's thesis or your claim that the republicans haven't been "in power" for 6 years.
My response: Dems controlled Congress from Jan 2007. They've had the WH and all Cabinet positions since Jan 2009. Rs have had control of House only since Jan 2011. So, yes, the Dems have controlled the government for 5.5 years.
If you really think having control of only one house for 18 months can be blamed for an ongoing economic fiasco, I want what you're smoking. Also, I worship their greatness, for they are awesome.
In the comments were similar sillinesses:
RAC1 9 June 2012 2:45PM Republicans couldn't give a stuff, they live in a bubble. Their kids go to private schools, they live in gated communities.
Yes, and we're driven around in limos. I have my driver deliberately detune the engine to generate as much CO2 as possible. I shoot at homeless people with easily available handguns. I FUCK PUPPIES!
Seriously. Half the population has private schools, lives in gated communities? I tell you the simple solution to that: BECOME A REPUBLICAN! Oh, boo hoo, I lke being poor and helpless. Someone else has it so much better. I must do everything I can to avoid soiling myself by being like them!
Dude, if that were true, I'd pay Party dues of $300 a month right now and consider it a deal. If only it worked that way.
Patrick McCullough 9 June 2012 2:49PM Response to RogerINtheUSA, 9 June 2012 2:16PM Your kidding right? Would you like to see the photo of Donald Rumsfeld shaking the hand of Saddam Hussein? ... meanwhile weapons being delivered to him (which he later used to kill his own people) by the United States and its allies. Don't even try to rewrite history... your not good at it.
Me: Wait, all those AK47s, RPKs, RPGs, ZSUs, oh, and Franco-German Roland AA missiles came from the US and "Allies" like Canada, the UK and Japan? Who knew?
Talk about rewriting history. Also, spelling.
Yes, the minority party is so powerful they control the government even now. And if you really believe this, it would behoove you not to anger them, for they are all powerful.
Zer0 the F@#$up and the Dems are in charge. They get credit for what works, and they must accept blame for what fails. If it was all Bush' fault when he was in charge, it's all Zer0's fault now. Grow up.
Seriously. I attack extremist Republicans who claim there's a "gay conspiracy." How much more idiotic is this crap? It's unreal.
