@The Anti-Alinsky Good stuff. You quiz simply and plainly points out his utter foolishness. Jason has a lot of time on his hands as he dedicates a lot of time to complete non sense but has not one original thought in his mind as to what he personally stands for until some liberal think tank releases some talking points. He is the typical lib that needs that structure to be told what he has to think and how he has to live. Its a lot easier to be stupid than to actually step out in the real world and look for solutions to the real problems we face.
Greg August 20, 2012 at 08:02 PM
The lefties continue with the same tactics as always, attack the opposition. Good luck with that, it has worked so well in the past. Keep on spitting, it's the best thing Romney could ask for. Obama is a joke and Biden is a disaster, Jason fits in well.
Bren August 20, 2012 at 08:18 PM
I understood that questions arose regarding George Romney's eligibility to run for president because of the Mexican birth, but that he was eligible to run because the Mormon Church has some type of arrangement with Immigration that provided U.S. citizenship to children born in the Mormon colony.
Luke August 20, 2012 at 08:55 PM
M.S., You'll get a 20% cut in taxes under the Romney plan. I have no knowledge of your calculator, however. Under the Ryan Medicare plan, you can go with traditional Medicare if you wish. Nothing will change for you, unless you wish to participate in the other part of the plan.
Luke August 20, 2012 at 08:59 PM
@M.S., No, I'm not jealous at all. I hope he makes much more money. What I was doing was turning Jason's childish class envy argument against him.
mau August 20, 2012 at 09:13 PM
Are celebrities or athletes with multiply children by multiple polygamists?
mau August 20, 2012 at 09:14 PM
If all else fails start flinging crap. And hope eventually something sticks.
Brian Dey August 20, 2012 at 09:42 PM
With obama's past experiences, he could maybe get a job as a used car salesman... We'll find out in November.
Brian Dey August 20, 2012 at 09:44 PM
Luke- See Jason thinks it's only alright to raise other people's taxes; not his. What a hypocrite!
Brian Dey August 20, 2012 at 09:47 PM
Reallly Dirk? Good, honest, hardworking people are a joke, but a lying, pot-smoking communist isn't? Thank God there are mre of us than people like you...
Luke August 20, 2012 at 09:56 PM
Brian, Jason has a source of income?
The Anti-Alinsky August 20, 2012 at 10:00 PM
Thanks skinnyDUDE. As time is kind of tight for the next week, feel free to provide your own alternative questions. It never ceases to amaze me the hypocrisy of the left. They are willing to stretch and exaggerate the truth (and often flat out lie) with any Conservative candidate, but refuse to see the major flaws in their candidates. They fight for the sanctity of life for a serial killer, but refuse to stand up for the unborn innocent. Even FDR is wondering what they are thinking!
Brian Dey August 20, 2012 at 10:05 PM
What was I thinking?
Lyle Ruble August 20, 2012 at 11:12 PM
@Brian Dey...Where's your proof. Are you familiar with slander?
Luke August 20, 2012 at 11:25 PM
@Lyle Proof of what? He describes his drug use in his book.
Dirk Gutzmiller August 20, 2012 at 11:26 PM
Brian Dey - I did not say that good, honest, hardworking people are a joke, of course, people like myself. I said Romney/Ryan are hilarious.
Lyle Ruble August 20, 2012 at 11:31 PM
@Luke....Where is Brian's proof that he's a communist? Brian is really going into the gutter and he didn't used to be like that. I don't understand all the trashing that's going on. It's not helping the dialogue.
Brian Dey August 20, 2012 at 11:42 PM
Lyle - Here's one: http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/promises/obameter/rulings/promise-broken/ Here's two: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=ZrZ25jvcacA Here's three: http://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://worddrum.files.wordpress.com/2009/10/obama-ayers.jpg&imgrefurl=http://worddrum.wordpress.com/tag/bill-ayers/&h=360&w=480&sz=15&tbnid=5KFUURIbJZeGfM:&tbnh=90&tbnw=120&prev=/search%3Fq%3Dobama%2Band%2Bayers%26tbm%3Disch%26tbo%3Du&zoom=1&q=obama+and+ayers&usg=__ipR-A5nLNEdk3BdtUcQrl7fq48Q=&docid=AomHtBhBoHo8BM&sa=X&ei=RcoyUM_8J8morQHh8IHgAQ&ved=0CGgQ9QEwCA&dur=0 And let's not forget socialized healthcare, his executive order to stop work for welfare, and on and on... No slander here... Here's three:
Brian Dey August 20, 2012 at 11:43 PM
And I've provided proof that Obama is hilarious. Would you like more and should I continue with Biden? Even the lefty Newsweek says its time for Obama to go.
Dirk Gutzmiller August 20, 2012 at 11:46 PM
skinnyDUDE - I thought the quiz was creative and funny. Why so serious and hateful.? A lot more engaging than reading the uncreative, convulsive spewings of extreme right wing bile. . .
Brian Dey August 20, 2012 at 11:46 PM
Sory Lyle but Obama was a huge mistake and four more years of this clown might ruin the country for years to come. You also have been a little bitter my friend.
Dirk Gutzmiller August 21, 2012 at 12:07 AM
Luke - Obama is the CEO of America, but makes much less than thousands of corporate CEOs.
Luke August 21, 2012 at 12:07 AM
Lyle, "Where is Brian's proof that he's a communist? Brian is really going into the gutter and he didn't used to be like that. I don't understand all the trashing that's going on. It's not helping the dialogue." This is thread is about Jason's post and what he has said subsequently. Jason is, as usual, full of hype, hyperbole, fallacious arguments and posturing. Everyone has the option of either playing along or ignoring him, but he can't be taken seriously. Those who play along will engage him with similar arguments, hence the hyperbole on Brian's part (although it is not that far from the truth).
Alfred August 21, 2012 at 12:53 AM
Interesting comments by Fem Jason with the Rachel Maddow glasses.
The Anti-Alinsky August 21, 2012 at 04:36 AM
4) Mitt Romney owns a $2 Million dollar ___ A) Insurance policy on his wife B) Insurance policy on his hair C) Dressage horse alternative Questions 4) Barack Hussein Obama owns____ a) an personally autographed, original copy of Karl Marx's "Communist Manifesto" b) a one of a kind custom bong c) a two million dollar property in an upscale Chicago neighborhood financed by a convicted felon
M.S. August 21, 2012 at 01:16 PM
@Luke: I am in my early 50's. I will NOT have the choice of maintaining Medicare under Romney/Ryan. I will be stuck with less coverage as premiums have always outstripped inflation by several percent. I will have less money as I will either have to make up the gap in premium support vs actual cost, or pay more out of pocket when I move to a lesser, cheaper plan.
M.S. August 21, 2012 at 01:20 PM
@Brian, I, too, don't trust lying, pot smoking communists. I don't see how that is topical because a)Obama is generally honest. b) Obama has never been a regular post smoker. (He may have experimented, but so has virtually every Viet Nam vet, college grad, etc.) c) Obama is not a communist. (If you think he is, please take a course in economic/political philosophy to better understand communism)
M.S. August 21, 2012 at 01:22 PM
@Brian: Obamacare uses private sector insurance plans. How is that the same as the government taking over an industry and running it?
M.S. August 21, 2012 at 01:23 PM
Thank you for such in-depth, content-rich contribution!
The Anti-Alinsky August 24, 2012 at 04:01 PM
"uncreative, convulsive spewings"??? Dirk, that's what Jason's entire post was. like most Liberal post it was based on rumor and bias, ... but mostly speculation.
