The 5 Worst Conservative Memes Of The Week

impliedfacepalmThis is the ninth installment in our weekly fact-check series “The 5 Worst Conservative Memes Of The Week.” For the other installments, see here.

For those of you who are seeing this for the first time, the idea behind the countdown is to spotlight the dumbest, most absurd, or downright horrible conservative memes that are floating around on social media. We also discuss the Facebook page or other social media accounts associated with them when applicable, as many of these images are used to advertise a website, petition, or political cause.

Again, if you are new here, this is the brief synopsis: Have you ever received those email forwards that tell you how people are putting HIV-loaded syringes on gas pump handles or that if you forward within 10 minutes, you will meet the person of your dreams? Yeah, it’s that kind of rubbish designed to prey on the gullible or pull on your heartstrings – and in this case, it’s in the form of conservative memes.


Now let’s get to the countdown, shall we?

5. I recently came across a Facebook page called “I AM THE TEA PARTY!“, thanks to one of our fans who alerted me to this meme. Yes, the highly amusing fact that this conservative page’s title is written in ALL CAPS was one of the first things I noticed about it.

Here’s how the economy works, at least according to the people who are ignorant enough to actually believe something posted from a page like this one. Apparently, the president doesn’t get to take credit for the economy unless he’s a Republican and that’s only if the economy is doing well. If it’s doing poorly, then it’s the fault of the last Democrat. However, if the president is a Democrat, then it’s the exact opposite and the recession that happened under Bush is somehow President Obama’s fault. The economy is also allegedly a failure because some people in their 20s and 30s are living at home and that’s totally not the fault of the companies pulling in record profits but refusing to hire workers or pay decently, despite their firm belief in trickle-down economics. Trust me, writing that train of logic was hard for me and I can imagine it was just as hard for you to read.


4. There was so much derp on that page that I could probably write 6 months worth of 5 Worst Conservative Memes articles based solely on the content there. For this week though, I’ll include just two of their memes. Feel free to visit their page and look at many more gems such as this one.

This list is so utterly ridiculous that I don’t even know where to start. Last time I checked, it was Republicans who were trying crush free speech and free expression. Remember Occupy Wall Street and how they cheered for that California cop who casually pepper sprayed students in the face? Religious freedom? Seriously? Newsflash, just because you can’t force your religious beliefs on other people doesn’t mean you are being persecuted. Privacy? Ok, that’s an issue for both parties, so if you’re a Republican don’t pretend like you’re innocent. 2nd Amendment? Again, regulations don’t equal confiscation. Private property? Ok, this has to be a joke. Republicans oppose pretty much everything on here, especially stopping corporate welfare. Then again, if you’re delusional enough to subscribe to that page, you probably still think President Obama is going to come for your guns any day now.

3. I’m sure this was meant to be a meme describing the hypocrisy of people who call themselves Christians, but I found it ironically posted as a photo comment by an angry conservative on a local Louisiana news Facebook page.

3

I suppose that in their minds, President Obama is a secret fascist, communist, gay Muslim Anti-Christ from Kenya so therefore hating him is in line with Christian values – or something like that. I can’t even imagine going through the day with that much obsession and hatred bottled up in me, but these people can find a way to blame anything that goes wrong in their lives on liberals and President Obama. Overslept? Blame Obama. Car won’t start and you’re late for work? Obama. It’s amazing how people who kvetch constantly about how people need to take personal responsibility seriously are the same ones who blame everything on someone else who doesn’t even know they exist.

  • Your column is hilarious. The level of Delusion by the Sanctimonious Left makes for great fodder. Keep it up, I’m highly entertained by you.

    • T.S.

      How about you retort with a real fact based argument? Too hard?

      • Barack Obama

        I like to lick chocolate lollipops until the creamy filling explodes in my jockies
        Dems are going to lose this election. Ah hahahahaha

      • John

        Stay classy, Republicans. 😉

      • Pain

        That’s the problem, Republicans don’t have class.

      • FuzzyBunnyFeet

        Sure they do. It’s all third.

      • Stephen Barlow

        They have money, who needs class.

      • youcantgetridofmethateasy

        And Bill Gates, Warren Buffet, T. Boone Pickens and George Soros are poor? You sure about that?

      • Stephen Barlow

        Those guys have class. Name a Republican who donates to the welfare od human beings on a Clinton or Gates level? Can’t can ya? Because the Opera and a private Ferrari Ride for the Governor of Virginia in exchange for a piece of his wife’s ass and a special license for his products are how REPUBLICANS “donate and contribute to society.

        I remember the Ryan photo op in the soup kitchen before the last RED LOSS @ the polls… Didn’t even have WATER on his hands because a DEOMOCRAT did the dishes first.

      • youcantgetridofmethateasy

        Koch Brothers.

        Red states give more money to charity than blue states, according to a new study on Monday.

        The eight states with residents who gave the highest share of their income to charity supported Sen. John McCain in 2008, while the seven states with the least generous residents went for President Barack Obama, the Chronicle of Philanthropy found in its new survey of tax data from the IRS for 2008.

        So what else you got?

      • Deven Kale

        There is an obvious flaw in the methodology of that study: they’re assuming that all charitable donations are claimed on peoples tax returns. While this seems like a reasonable assumption, I don’t believe it is. I, a liberal, never claim my charitable donations on my taxes, and yes, I do make charitable donations. I know other liberals who do the same. This is probably true on both sides, but I can’t say for sure since most of my friends are liberal.

        What this study really proves, then, is that among those people who claim their charitable donations on their tax returns, the largest share of them are in red states. In other words, it says almost nothing about the true charitableness of each state, since there is an obvious chunk of donators missing from the data.

      • youcantgetridofmethateasy

        And I, as a raging Constitutional Originalist, has never deducted any of my charitable donations, nor do I ‘write off’ my time at my church’s Food Pantry or Soup Kitchen. I also don’t deduct my work and donations to both the VA Outreach and the Wounded Warriors. So we counter each other in our absorption of Charity expenses.
        But one thing is for sure, Progressives always ‘write off’ their charitable gifts. i.e. Joe Biden’s paltry Tax deduction.

      • Deven Kale

        Progressives always ‘write off’ their charitable gifts. i.e. Joe Biden’s paltry Tax deduction.

        Progressives always do? I thought I just explained that I don’t, and neither do many of my friends. Unless you’re claiming that there’s a substantial difference between Liberal and Progressive in this country, which would be odd since they’re often used interchangeably.

      • youcantgetridofmethateasy

        Yet the ‘write-off’ is your very act of rubbing it in the face of those who challenge you. I’m not suggesting that you’re fibbing in your presentation of yourself as a Charitable Man, I’m questioning the presentation’s purpose. Charity is a personal sacrifice and not something which is to be worn as a ‘badge of honor’ at the next meeting of the ‘I’m better than you’ club.

      • Deven Kale

        I’m not rubbing it in anyone’s face. I was using my own personal experience to point out a flaw in the study. I was making no claim of who’s better than who. If you wish to claim making a point is rubbing it in your face, I can’t stop you. Even if it is wrong.

      • youcantgetridofmethateasy

        Teddy Kennedy had class? He not only possessed no ‘class’, he couldn’t swim either. And John Kerry ‘was for the war before he was against the war’. Unless you want to justify his use of a Browning M2HB .50cal belt-fed machine gun on civilians in Viet Nam, don’t bother defending yourself.

      • Stephen Barlow

        Define loss? I think 6 senate seats are going to Dems. NC, SD, GA, KS, CO, and NJ. It’s enough that the REDS will be held in check. Sadly, the House will remain Boehnerized and impotent for the next 2 years.

      • youcantgetridofmethateasy

        That’s funny. It’s like you can count on a Progressive uprising at the polls. You foolish man. Progressive Republicans and Progressive Democrats always vote the same way; in their own best interests (not yours).
        You just keep pumping air into that flat tire with the nail still in it. Good luck with that.

      • Stephen Barlow

        No, I count on RED Buffoonery to sicken too many voters who are TIRED of gridlock, obstructionism and corruption that denies them Constitutional Representation. Corporations can NEVER vote, therefore they should have ZERO political vote. Neither should churches.

      • youcantgetridofmethateasy

        Neither can non-citizens yet you Progressives are just ramming that one down the public’s throat BTW, you need a governmental ID bearing both a signature and a physical address in order to purchase a gun yet no such thing to pull the trigger to vote for president? Why is that? I mean, just how do you expect ‘Card-Check’ to work if you don’t require cards?

      • Too hard for you understand.

      • youcantgetridofmethateasy

        Seriously? I’m posting on a message board dedicated to leftist ideology and titled “Forward Progressives”; and all I’m doing here is eating all your lunches. All you can produce are ‘one-liners’ of no consequence. But good luck with that anyway.

      • Well, Leftists get confused if you go farther than a one-line Bumper Sticker slogan mentality. Hope & Change, My boy…

      • So how’s that lunch after the election. A bit spoiled? 🙂

      • youcantgetridofmethateasy

        Since when is a retort effective against a raging leftist? All you do is call for ‘Beer Summits’ and exclaim ‘he’d look just like my son’.

    • Pipercat

      You should wear a hat in the desert.

      • And you should grow up.

      • Stephen Barlow

        And become feeble and impotent like you?

      • youcantgetridofmethateasy

        Like a lame duck Obama? BTW, did he ever pay back Tony Rezko for that home loan

      • Stephen Barlow

        Did Rick Scott ever do time for scamming medicare out of $1.7 BILLION?

      • youcantgetridofmethateasy

        Will Eric Holder ever do time for selling guns to Mexican Drug Lords?

      • Better than churlish and childish like you, dearie…

      • Stephen Barlow

        I’ll take a weekend of sport fuc*ing without popsicle sticks and rubber bands you worthless old RED corpse.

      • Oh so you have to work up to being childish, I see.

      • Stephen Barlow

        nah. I just don’t need to stuff 5 blue pills up My pee hole top please your wife.

      • So that makes you highly delusional, then. Good, every things back to normal.

      • Stephen Barlow

        Took you THAT long to get it up?

      • Sorry, I have a life so I don’t live to respond the childish Liberals. Do you have one? (a snotty childish Liberal like you would have made a puerile sexual innuendo as a response instead so just think of it in your head I’m sure it already occurred to you…) 🙂

      • Pipercat

        Wow, is that desert wit? Wear two hats…

      • Well, if that was your wit you may need two hats…

      • Pipercat

        … and you’re telling me to grow up.

      • Yeah, Iam, Sam I am… 🙂

      • Pipercat

        My handle is Pipercat, not Iam.

    • mag00

      Oh please do enlighten us on all the wisdom, logic, and facts behind each of those brilliant republican memes that someone we’re all blind to. Please. We’re waiting.

      • Deven Kale

        “brilliant republican memes that someone we’re all blind to.”

        I think you mean “somehow.”

      • mag00

        Oh, you’re right. I had a typo. Let me rephrase:

        Oh please do enlighten us on all the wisdom, logic, and facts behind each of those brilliant republican memes that somehow we’re all blind to. Please. We’re waiting.

        Still waiting for one of you to clarify 🙂

      • Stephen Barlow

        You’ll never get tit.

      • mag00

        Why can’t any of you give me an answer? Maybe because you have nothing to back yourself up?

      • Stephen Barlow

        What answer do you want? Don’t you just invent them all yourself?

      • youcantgetridofmethateasy

        I leave the invention of facts to Alan Colmes, Bill Mahr, Al Franken and Rachel Maddow

      • Stephen Barlow

        You are nonexistant to Me.

      • mag00

        mmhmm. that’s convenient since you have no answers to provide 🙂 continue being ignorant and not even trying to inform yourself. it’ll get you nowhere, but i’m sure you don’t care.

      • Stephen Barlow

        ————-

        Forever proving the republican low-info voter stereotype. You don’t even know what you believe or why, but you know you dislike me because I’m a liberal lol

      • mag00

        Ohhh I get it, you’re like 10-years-old or something lol. I can’t believe I’ve been arguing with a child, but it does add up to your responses… whew. Hopefully when you’re an adult you’ll develop critical thinking skills 🙂

      • Stephen Barlow

        PEDOPHILE ALLEERRRTTTTT!

      • youcantgetridofmethateasy

        Did your Mom bottle feed you?

      • Stephen Barlow

        Not all of us are blind. Most are deaf and dumb to the massive malevant misanthropic and myopic monstrosity of the memes.

      • youcantgetridofmethateasy

        Who else are you speaking for? You sure you have any back-up?

      • No, you’re not. You aren’t capable of that level of intellectual maturity.

      • Stephen Barlow

        YOu can’t even spell intelheckchewall madchurity like a grown up Redpublican.

      • youcantgetridofmethateasy

        Wow, that’s really adult of you. And I’ll bet you were the OWS Terrorist who threw the un-lit Molotov cocktails at Police. Good for you for trying so hard. What’s next for you? The Special Olympics?

      • Stephen Barlow

        I lit Mine and I raped the “Pepper SPray Cop’s” mother and daughter.

      • youcantgetridofmethateasy

        That was you? The one who ran the ‘Rape Pit’??
        Sweet ! But Bro, you tend to offend. Use some deodorant.

      • Good thing I’m not a Republican then, but at least I can spell better than you… 🙂

      • Stephen Barlow

        I thought was pretty impressive for a Critical Thinker.

      • And better grammar as well. 🙂

      • mag00

        “intellectual maturity”, coming from the guy who won’t even explain his position. Very intellectual of you, sir.

      • Thank you. 🙂

      • Sorry, not a Republican so you’ll have to look to MSDNC for your memes.

    • Stephen Barlow

      Keep chewing that GOP cud and pooping that fodder all over your integrity.

      • youcantgetridofmethateasy

        But according to Our Dear Leader, you didn’t make that integrity.

      • Keep that 5 year old’s mouth. You need it for all that leftist bile you spew in the name of “tolerance”, “sensitivity”, “compassion” and Pro-choice”. 🙂

    • youcantgetridofmethateasy

      It is funny isn’t it? It’s like every one of them want to be the lead man in the preverbal Daisy Chain.

  • Jim Valley

    Today’s conservatives are so simple-minded! There is no mystery about why they always fall for this nonsense; it’s tailor-made for their paranoid, black-and-white worldview.

    It is to laugh.

    • sidweiss

      and your so smart and superior. libs are a-holes. things they are beyond reproach and smarter than everyone . dick heads

      • Jim Valley

        Such a thoughtful, mature comment! And yet people say conservatives are vulgar and insolent. It’s a mystery.

      • youcantgetridofmethateasy

        Seriously? You’re taking the high ground? Isn’t your agenda to Segregate, Ostracize and Ridicule?

      • Stephen Barlow

        NO Democrat OR Liberal is onto Seccession, Segregation @ the Ballot, in schools or in the workplace, few do more than ridicule the absolute falseness of Redpublican ostracism and hate speech.

      • youcantgetridofmethateasy

        What ‘hate speech’? War on Women? War on Coal? War on God? War on Poor? War on Rich? War on Sesame Street? What ‘hate speech’?

      • Stephen Barlow

        That is ALL Republican mime with the sound up.

      • youcantgetridofmethateasy

        Nowhere near as hateful as a 1 minute Debbie Wasserman Schultz sound bite, or an Elijah Cummings open microphone muttering. You should listen more; it’s quite entertaining to hear what the Leftists actually think of the populous.

      • Stephen Barlow

        Please qquote those and I’ll give you Gohmert, Cruz, Limbaugh, McConnell, Klayman and Arpaio.

      • youcantgetridofmethateasy

        Don’t want them, but remember, you still keep Chuckie ‘Schumkie’ Schumer, Debbie Wasserman Schultz and and that other fellow tribesman of yours, Henry Waxman. You’re stuck with them.

        it’s “you’re” so smart…not “your”.

        Misspelling “you’re” kind of loses “your” point…

      • Bobbi Beecher

        He just admitted we are smarter than him and the rest of the Republican Party? We should say “thank you, we know” and move on from his ignorance.

      • Jim Valley

        It is amazing how often conservatives call other people “stupid”, misspelling third-grade words as they do so. The level of self-awareness on the right is evidently ZERO.

      • youcantgetridofmethateasy

        It’s amazing how Jimmy the Boy Valley only hangs with his Commie friends. I guess even Commies need a pivot man at their parties.

      • djtejas

        Still trying to figure out how “Commies” have anything to do with proper basic grammar…SMH

      • youcantgetridofmethateasy

        Am I saying? Seems you’re the only on making that connection, but I do agree with you that public education has failed generations in the Progressive stated purpose of better preparing young malleable minds for a large and cruel world. Seems the only thing ‘Public’ about it is what the Public Sector Unions say it is.

      • djtejas

        Well, follow along the thread….I made a comment about misspelling words while trying to make a point, and Jim then commented to my reply about Conservatives calling other people names and misspelling words…You then made a comment to Jim’s reply by saying Jimmy only hangs out with his Commie friends.

      • youcantgetridofmethateasy

        Since you wouldn’t even want to ‘hang’ with Jimmy Valley no matter how many lower shelf adult beverages he bought you, lets just address your sentence about grammar school: words that my great grandson is forced to learn over others – Green, Equality of effort, non-differentiation of sexes, Religion of Gov’t and not God, etc. and so on. Based on the new PSA from the group FCKH8, grammar is the last thing being taught in Elementary school.

        “Reduplican” is a genetic anomaly (just like homosexuality) that you’d condone being eliminated via Margaret Sanger’s preferred Gene-Pool cleanser known as Abortion-on-Demand? Would you really like it if those parents who now choose to terminate an unborn baby who possesses the ‘gay’ gene could also decide whether their baby who is genetically a ‘Constitutional Originalist’, should even make it out of the birth canal?

        You can’t go attacking a group of people’s intelligence with grammar like yours. Start off with the fact you didn’t use a Capitol letter to start ANY of your sentences. “your so smart” should have been “you’re so smart”. Your is possessive, ie: “your statement is ridiculous”. You’re it the combination of you and are. If you cannot differentiate the two, just spell out the two words so you don’t look like such an idiot when claiming someone is less intelligent than you are.

        He is speaking (typing) in Ebonics. Which to a RED is the language of Ebola Viruses and other minority groups.

        Ebonics:

        “A poor excuse for a failure to grasp the basics of english. When in doubt, throw an “izzle” sound in the middle of any word of just string random thoughts together and insinuate that they actually mean something. When backed into a corner, you can always claim that it has something to do with a sort of symbolism or is a defining trait that makes your race great, versus own up to the fact that it is essentially laziness at it’s finest.

        Debbie Wasserman Schultz in a room full of Illegal Alien border-jumper kids? Are you serious? That’s like saying Elijah Cummings marches in “Stop the Violence” protests in inner city Chicago.

      So were ‘yesterday’s’ far smarter? Like way back when in the 1700’s as American conservatives decided to risk their lives and their lands in a defiant move against the King? Are those the un-simple-minded that you so clearly referenced there Young Jimmy? The very one’s who bled and died to bring forth this new nation? I never asked you this before Young Jimmy; have you ever bled for God and Country? Have you ever fought in a foreign land for the freedom of a foreign people? Have you ever had to question your faith as you took other men’s lives in defense of your country and it’s founding documents?
      —————————————————————————–
      Do you get nose bleeds sitting high on that horse of yours?
      And to think, it is my vote that counters yours on November 4th.
      A duty I gladly accept. A salute to you Sir; the one-finger kind.

      • Jim Valley

        In the Revolution, the conservatives were the Tories, who sided with the King and did not want America to be formed.

      • youcantgetridofmethateasy

        Patriots and Partisans there dear Young Jimmy. Did you forget who lost in the War of 1812? Try again,,,, please. BTW, have you noticed how fast I tracked you down even after you turned your DISQUS profile to ‘Private’? I know where you hang out Mr. Valley. Thanks for inviting me into your secret society.

      • Jim Valley

        This is where you have been responding to me all along.

      • youcantgetridofmethateasy

        So why hide in plain sight if you don’t want to be challenged in your ideology?
        BTW young Jimmy, who were the Whigs of England and why did they secret money and arms to the American Revolutionary’s?

      Thanks again for inviting me here Young Jimmy. I’m really having a blast destroying the Progressive pathology that you and your fiends blather here.
      Good times.

  • Jim Bean

    Take a second look at ‘Democrats are against”. While Democrats may not actually be against these things they do a really good job of creating the impression that they are. (5) Someone gets shot, they’re going to talk about reducing your access to guns. (1) Criticize Obama, they’ll call you racist. (2) Talk about gang violence, they’ll call you bigot. (3) Try to stand up for your religious values, they’ll take you to court.

    • John

      Any intelligent person realizes that there is nothing wrong with assault rifle bans, magazine restrictions, extensive background checks, and a national gun registry. If all of those things happened to take place, guns would hardly be banned, and would still remain a very profitable business.

      It depends where the criticism of President Obama comes from. If is it criticism by people who were silent during one of our worst presidencies, that of President Bush, then that criticisms is irrelevant.

      • Jim Bean

        Its not irrelevant. People mature with time and become engaged with issues today that they weren’t engaged in 10 years ago. A criticism is irrelevant only when it is unfounded.

      • Stephen Barlow

        I an SHOCKED and AWED by your understanding of ‘growth”. Now try accomplishing it and realize that bettering the lives of ALL children improves the power of a Nation as a society and the qualities of life for all.

        The dollar says, “E Pluribus Unum.” NOT “Corporatatus Corruptus Maximus.”

      • Jim Bean

        Bettering the lives of children would start with reversing the left wing trend towards uncommitted sexual relationships and children being born to single parents.

      • youcantgetridofmethateasy

        And bastardizing Holy Matrimony to the point were it is no longer relevant.
        ————
        A 2012 speech by Masha Gessen, an author and outspoken activist for the LGBT community, is just now going viral and it includes a theory that many supporters of traditional marriage have speculated about for years: The push for gay marriage has less to do with the right to marry – it is about diminishing and eventually destroying the institution of marriage and redefining the “traditional family.”

      • Jim Bean

        I’ve said it all along. Their objective is to eliminate all sexual relationship distinctions so there aren’t any – the hope being that the day will come when they aren’t regarded as ‘different.’ I was not aware of Masha Gessen. Thanks for making me a little wiser today.

      • youcantgetridofmethateasy

        You can Legislate Compliance but you can’t Legislate Acceptance.

      • Jim Bean

        Amen.

      • Stephen Barlow

        So you think a woman should marry the man who raped her and raise that kid in a hate filled home?

        How Republican of you Jimmyboy.

      • Jim Bean

        Rape? Your comment is so far divorced from anything contained in my comment that one can only conclude psychotropic drugs or chronic illness at play here.

      • youcantgetridofmethateasy

        Why is that the standard of the Progressive? “Rape” is a stalking horse in their tool box of challenges. When you even verbalize ‘Abortion on-demand” or Abortion for Convenience”, they retort that you want ‘Rape’ legalized.
        It’s the very same when you challenge the governments ‘Incorporation Doctrine’ over State’s Rights and the disillusionment of the 10th Amendment; they shout that you want to return the country to the “Slave Days”.
        They have no moral code to guide them; they are simply “Progressives”. It is ‘These United States’ for a reason.

      • Stephen Barlow

        Rape is pretty much what you seemed to be advocating.

      • Stephen Barlow

        More gay relationships are actually COMMITTED, both more deeply and longer than most straight marriages.

      • youcantgetridofmethateasy

        And that explains ‘Common Core’ and it’s Socialist undertones how?

      • Stephen Barlow

        You tell us, YOU are the self proclaimed guru of garbage. Maybe you could compare it to “ALL children left behind”.

      • youcantgetridofmethateasy

        Left behind by whom? Parents? If you demand that you be allowed to procreate, you also assume the responsibility to raise the children produced. When did raising OUR children become a Government responsibility? Where is that written in the U.S. Constitution as an Enumerated Power of Government?
        And while you’re at it, why does the US Dept. of Education Inspector General’s Office have a heavily-armed SWAT Team? Care to explain that?

      • Stephen Barlow

        SO WHY are all you people FOR the “unborn” and against all the LIVING CHILDREN who need food, shelter and schools? You have nothing but garbage to spew.

      • youcantgetridofmethateasy

        If you demand the “Right” to procreate, then you MUST assume the responsibility to raise that child.
        ‘Why must I pay for your life mistakes’ (to quote Gov. Jesse Ventura)

      • Deven Kale

        Are you now saying having children is not a right? That a person must prove their ability to care for a child before they’re allowed to have one (let’s call it a parenting license)? Let’s look at that a little more closely: This would require mandatory, reversible sterilization of the entire population (either chemical or surgical), which would be reversed only once the parents obtain their license. If there is an unlicensed (accidental) pregnancy, that would require either a forced abortion or adoption, most likely depending on the number of children already in the foster system, but there would most likely be other considerations. This would have to be regulated by a new government agency, which would require additional funding, in order to properly function. This would require mandatory reporting of a woman’s health to that government agency in order to ensure that there are no unlicensed births/parents.

        Or maybe I’m completely wrong and you’re just being a jerk. In which case, there has to be some sort of system in place to help take care of those children who are born into situations where the parents are not fully able to take care of them and adoption isn’t an option, for whatever reason. So, “why must I pay for your life mistakes”? Because all too often the other option is the death of that child, which you would be just as liable for as the parents, since you would be removing that support system which is already there.

      • Stephen Barlow

        Women who are DENIED access to abortions should be allowed to SELL their children to the highest bidding home. To cover the cost of a MANDATED PREGNANCY and a FORCED BIRTH.

      • Stephen Barlow

        What SWAT team? yOu mean Bush’s plan to MILITARIZE local police with 98,000 MACHINE GUNS from the Pentagon?

        Article One, Section Eight.

      • youcantgetridofmethateasy

        Bush the Progressive’s plan which has been expanded under Our Dear Leader? Yes, that’s the one. The 1033 Federal Program that the Muslim in Chief has expanded so that Ferguson could acquire an additional $500,000 in CN/CS/OC grenades for use against the pending Rioters & Looters.
        You have no idea just how easy you make this for me.

      • youcantgetridofmethateasy

        Like accusing the Signers of the Declaration of Independence as being crusty old men in wigs who owned slaves?

      • Jim Bean

        Doesn’t mean they were stupid. They put together the foundation for the greatest society in the history of the world – the occasional ingrate notwithstanding.

      • youcantgetridofmethateasy

        “occasional ingrate”???? Do you realize what the title of this putrid caldron of Dante’s best is titled? This is a graphic display of the sheer numbers of Raging Progressives who are just one Ferguson-Riot away from taking up arms and murdering anyone with a Right of Center ethos. America is just moments away from the Stalinist purge if these self-described ‘Progressives’ are to be believed.

      • Jim Bean

        Any intelligent person also realizes that once assault rifle bans, magazine restrictions, extensive background checks, and a national gun registry are in place they will be hearing the argument, “any intelligent person realizes there is nothing wrong with hand gun bans, centerfire ammunition bans, yadayadayada.”

      • Stephen Barlow

      • youcantgetridofmethateasy

        Why Harlem? Why you getting all Racist? I thought Progressives were all-inclusive. So you enjoy watching “Birth of a Nation”? Do you practice your knot-tying while watching your boxed CD Set of “ROOTS”?

      • youcantgetridofmethateasy

        So a PhD is a prerequisite to challenge your Progressive Ideology?? Seriously? Elite much?

      • youcantgetridofmethateasy

        Nice point.

    • Stephen Barlow

      Thanks for removing the metaphorical penis from your mouth and stating the truth AGAIN!! “While Democrats may not actually be against these things”

      It’s only the RIGHT MONKEY MEDIA that creates the illusion of the Dems being for these things.

      • youcantgetridofmethateasy

        Dems are not all about Free stuff? Entitlements? Green Cards?

        President Barack Obama deputies are secretly preparing to print work permits for up to 11 million illegal immigrants over the next two years, despite the nation’s high unemployment, stalled wages and increasing automation.

        If Obama actually goes ahead with the plan that is sketched in a federal contract document, he would provide employers with the ability to legally hire 13 million foreign workers even as 12 million Americans turn 18 in 2015, 2016 and 2017.

        The plan to print millions of work permits and green cards — dubbed “permanent resident cards” — is outlined in Oct. 3 and Oct. 6 federal announcements to contractors.

        Is this not a Democrat idea?

      • Stephen Barlow

        A Democratic house would surely have created ANOTHER 11MILLION jobs on top of those created with absolute obstructionism by the REDS.

        I take it you have given up on the “Obama to offshore 11 million jobs” bullshit meme…

        Is JEEP STILL gonna close all american operations like Romney promised TWICE?

        Can you PRING those 2 announcements ANd their source. Because this smells like a fix news Fiction spewing Glenn Beck Garbage report to Me.

      • youcantgetridofmethateasy

        Now you’re just being silly. Obama had both houses for his first two years. Care to explain where all those jobs he saved or created, are now? Oh that’s right, the evil “Redpublicans” stand in the way of the “Black” man from achieving his ‘Progressive’ goals.
        Oh how very sad.

      • Stephen Barlow

        That’s what the REAL JOBS BILLS Boehner refuses to put up for a floor vote. Some people even believe that politics as partisan as the Hastert Rule is Sedition.

      • youcantgetridofmethateasy

        And Harry Reid can’t seem to even find the Senate agenda since he’s too busy pronouncing Bills ‘Dead on Arrival’. Again Capt. Oblivious, where are all those jobs Our Dear Leader very clearly pronounced were “Made or Saved”?

    • youcantgetridofmethateasy

      That pretty much wraps it all up in a nice bow. Except that OWS-Socialists also throw Molotov Cocktails at Police.

      BTW, did all you big Libs know that the NYC Axe man is also a card carrying member of the New Black Panthers? The very ones who are transporting weapons to Ferguson in anticipation of a ‘No Bill’.

      ———————————————————————————

      (CNN) — If the local grand jury brings no charges against police Officer Darren Wilson in the case of Michael Brown’s killing, street protests in Ferguson, Missouri, are inevitable. Demonstrators angry about Wilson’s shooting of the unarmed black teenager in August already decry the grand jury’s secrecy and “lack of transparency.” But for those who believe that the grand jury procedure is some sort of cop and prosecutor conspiracy to trample the rights of minority citizens, a little background on this hallowed institution might be in order.

    • youcantgetridofmethateasy

      It’s the ‘Herd’ mentality of Party Politics. What’s sad is that if the National Party were to actually set a Platform in Stone and then perform a ‘Litmus’ test on all self-described members, most all would fail.
      A party designation does not separate politicians. RINO’s & DINO’s share the exact same Progressive Ideology and yet, during the silly season of Election time, they wholeheartedly try to distance themselves from their twins on the other side of the aisle.
      Even Republican-Progressive Newt Gingrich gave his nod to his Presidential Idol, Progressive-Democrat FDR.
      There are no differences between RINO’s & DINO’s, they just sit in different seats. And yet you let them hold the reins of Power over you.
      Oh how sad.

    • Stephen Barlow

      “While Democrats may not actually be against these things…” tells the WHOLE STORY you just tried to sell is a complete LIE!.

    Conservatives are ridiculous. They blame Obama for everything as if he is some kind of super villain. Problem with these people is their willful ignorance. As if a Republican in office would suddenly make things better for them. Republicans could care less about the people who vote for them. They are only interested in getting in power so they can mess the country up worse than their last joke of a president.

    • sidweiss

      • youcantgetridofmethateasy

        Yea, when the Dino’s and Rino’s were running away from Bush, he had to make a conscious decision NOT to release the reports that would have proven the WMD’s were there. But then again Kerry was for the war before he was against the war.

      • Stephen Barlow

        Both are irrelevant to the BASIC TRUTH that the Reports were post mortems. created AFTER Bush’s fraud was made public. MANY people felt swindled by Bush, Cheney and Rumsfeld. THEY DESIGNED the Iraq Invasion BEFORE THEY WERE EVEN IN OFFICE.

        THE WMD claim were complete fabrications. Discovering ancient sealed stockpiles of useless and toxic weapons in 2011 does NOT in ANY way exonerate the Bush administration En Masse`, from criminal activity and corruption.

      • youcantgetridofmethateasy

        They were factory fresh when the Gulf War started. And they are still quite useful in the hands of ISIS fighters as reports of Mustard Gas usage is hitting the headlines.

        All textbook solutions WITHOUT raising revenue in times of Debt. And they are working. BUT, Raise all taxes 10% until it’s paid off in 7 years and the whole problem would have been solved with simple legislation in March 2009. Might even have been paid off early, considering that 10% of those ZERO TAX corporate profits Obama has Given business’ could be 10’s of billions from half the fortune 500 each year.

        250 x 10 Billion = 2.5 TRILLION / 13Trillion (the debt after Obama SOLVED the runaway trainwreck of an economy Bush imploded.) means if implemented in 2010, we would be in SURPLUS next Christmas. HUMMNNN!!! WOW!!

But go ahead and continue to buy into the be afraid be VERY afraid crap the GOP continues to vomit out of their mouths.

        And Charlie Rangel & Andy Boy Cuomo and their strong-arming the banks for Sub-Prime Home Loans had nothing to do with it? Seriously?

      • Stephen Barlow

        You forgot Janet Reno and Barney Frank.

        Clinton hit it square over the fence in his book.

        “In his 2011 book, Back to Work, former president Bill Clinton attributed the housing-market crisis of 2008 to the greed of banks that “were over-leveraged, with too many risky investments, especially in subprime mortgages and securities and derivatives that were spun out of them.” In Clinton’s calculus, “the crash occurred because there was too little government oversight of, and virtually no restraint on, risky loans without sufficient capital to back them up.”

        Which is a simplification of what have always said.

        NO ONE EVER insisted that bankers INTENTIONALLY FAIL @ DUE DILIGENCE.

        Racism is NEVER “good underwriting.” Falsifying documentation and NOT doing back round checks just to get a signature on a mortgage so you get another on a commission check is NEVER THE RIGHT THNG TO DO.

        And unsuspecting homeowners had NOTHING to do with it. 11 million homeless people were scapegoated by the Rovian REDS and the REDS got to keep the cash by lying their asses off even more.

      • youcantgetridofmethateasy

Conservatives are sometimes right, most of them aren’t, but the some that are right bring up valid points of concern. This is why I read what they say, just to get a whole picture of how things go down. Never limit yourself to one news source.

      • Stephen Barlow

        Sanity is the key word.

        And Dems are wrong for NOT jailing Seditionists.

      • youcantgetridofmethateasy

        Sedition
        In law, sedition is overt conduct, such as speech and organization, that is deemed by the legal authority to tend toward insurrection against the established order. Sedition often includes subversion of a constitution and incitement of discontent (or resistance) to lawful authority. Sedition may include any commotion, though not aimed at direct and open violence against the laws.
        ————————————————————
        Yet when he says he will use his “Pen & Phone” to subvert both the will of the people and the Enumerated Powers Constitutionally guaranteed to those people, you fail to see that as ‘Sedition’. Why is that?

      • Stephen Barlow

        like writing or signing the FreesomWorks letter, or the Patriot Act… which directly subverts the Constitution in Article One and 6 Amendments, or the Voting Rights Act Recission by SCOTUS which invites 30 States to immediately corrupt elections along Racial lines violating 3 Amendments.

        Does Resistricting the Constitutional Rights of women by IMPEDING their access to safe abortions constitute Subversion of LAWFUL Government?

        Does refusing to vote NEW LEGISLATION canceling the Citizen’s United or Hobby Lobby decisions constitute an abrogation of civic duty by an swore elected Representative of the people?

        The WILL of the people is clear, on IMMIGRATION REFORM, TAX REDORM FOR BUSINESS’ and THE RICH, GUN CONTROL, ABORTION RIGHTS, VOTING RIGHTS, PERPETUAL WAR, GAY RIGHTS< EQUAL PAY and even on fighting Isis and Ebola.
        All of which the REpublican House and REDS in the Senate have DENIED violating their oath of office in violation of the Sedition definition laid out IN the Constitution.

        Obama is the ONLY ONE actually working to GIVE the people what the MAJORITY wants because in your RED world, money, corruption by the extreme minority Rules. Which makes ALL register GOP voters DEFACTO SEDITIONISTS for supporting all of these crimes.

        When you can give Me list of "what the public wants" that th GOP supports AND acts upon… you may get more pixels you friggin' pervy stalker. Why did you choose to shadow me with a locked Private DISCUS FILE?

      • youcantgetridofmethateasy

        But BUSH CAUSED the War in Iraq AND the 1`0,000 American DEATHS by LYING about WMD. He committed war crimes.

        BUSH CAUSED the failure of the economy by FAILING to administrate and oversee Banks and mortgage companies and Derivatives.

        BUSH CAUSED 11 million Foreclosures by NOT allowing mortgage reconciliation, CAUSED the unemployment rate AND the Debt to DOUBLE and for the net economic growth of this nation to be a NEGATIVE for the first time in history since the Great Depression. Which was caused by the SAME basic Republican policies of feed the Rich on the backs of the many under Hoover as Bush inflicted on Modern America.

        Obama has been cleaning up the Redpublican mess, DESPITE massively total obstructionism by Seditions Republicans in Office.

      • youcantgetridofmethateasy

        Did you not receive your copy of the Wall Street Journal’s report?

        Washington—Sunni extremists in Iraq have occupied what was once Saddam Hussein’s premier chemical-weapons production facility, a complex that still contains a stockpile of old weapons, State Department and other U.S. government officials said.

        U.S. officials don’t believe the Sunni militants will be able to create a functional chemical weapon from the material. The weapons stockpiled at the Al Muthanna complex are old, contaminated and hard to move, officials said.

        “Don’t let anybody tell you it’s corporations and businesses create jobs,” Clinton said.

        “You know that old theory, ‘trickle-down economics,’” she continued. “That has been tried, that has failed. It has failed rather spectacularly.”

        “You know, one of the things my husband says when people say ‘Well, what did you bring to Washington,’ he said, ‘Well, I brought arithmetic,’” Clinton said, which elicited loud laughs from the crowd.

    I have seen the Commercials for Cory Gardner here in Colorado. The ones that show Obama golfing are the most dishonestly disgusting. The ones claiming that Mark Udall doesn’t show up for a committee that hasn’t met to discuss ISIS and that he votes for Obama 99% of the time are even worse. They claim that Udall is unamerican for telling the truth, “ISIS is NOT an eminent threat.”
    I am surprised those 2 didn’t make the list. I mean last weeks choices were pretty lame compared to the yuck factor of 9.987 of this weeks horrors.

    But the most horrific thing I saw this week is from Think Progress. It’s a Top Ten List (ala Letterman) of what is most likely the future if the REDS get the Senate. They disasterize a bit by failing to figure in the VETO that will NEVER be over ridden when Obama refuses to sign ANY LAW that reduces the rights of Any American’s Liberty, enriches the 1%, further’s the cause of WHITE RACISM, SEXISM or Gay hate, or promotes more perpetual war and American Volunteer Troopers Deaths.
