What a dishonest liberal you are, RRKore. 

There's no way a guy as dishonorable as you served in the military.  Not a full term, anyway. 

Unless it was during a time of war (Vietnam, Korea, and WW2 are all possibilities for you, I guess), they kick out people like you.

I think you are a big liar who justifies his lying (to himself only) by considering the board to be about entertainment only.

Probably, you're just happy for the attention.

No, I am not asking for op ed pieces from some website.  I am asking for specific examples of Fox News supporting Republican candidates.  That means formal endorsements by the network, not positions taken by the network and not commentary by someone on an opinion show.  

Bwahaha.  Getdafuckoutahere.

That'd be like going to a prison and trying to find an inmate who'll say he's guilty.

I typically read any link someone provides for me, but you have abused that privilege.  I have, on numerous occasions, read a link you posted that did not support whatever point you were trying to make. 

...

What a shyster you are, BB.

I think this is the part where we starting talking about each other's mother.  I'll start:  your momma is so dumb she thought a quarterback was a refund. 

LOL. 

Even with respect to insults, you're mailing it in, eh?

..

Projecting again.  You are a one trick pony.  Do you have specific examples of "Fox News" supporting Republican candidates, or are you just trolling again? 

Give me a couple of mainstream sources other than Fox (New York Times?, CNN?, ABC?) that you won't reject out of hand and I'll find links for you.

56  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: The majority of Americans - Are they liberal? NEW POLL RESULTS on: July 28, 2014, 04:07:51 PM
I'm not arguing about anything.  This isn't a debate.  I am mocking you.  The fact you think people are "winning" or "losing" "debates" on this message board further shows how small your world is.   

I know this is an adult playground, but nobody needs defenders on here.  lol 

The only thing that has really changed on the board is the over-the-top stalking by Soul Crusher groupies.  Other than that, it's the same.  People come and go.  "Regulars" take breaks.  Soul Crusher posts every day.  You lie or embellish every day.  Same old same old.   

Translation:   Yeah, I'm mailing it in.  So what?
57  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: The majority of Americans - Are they liberal? NEW POLL RESULTS on: July 28, 2014, 04:04:58 PM
you don't win many arguments on getbig these days.   your debate is outright garbage now.

I don't think any getbiggers will chime in to defend you either.  You change subject to insults, you roll eyes, and you generally just derail things.  And not in an entertaining way, rather, in a dumb and boring way.
...

Not to pile on, but I agree with this. 

Earlier today, I was reading an old, old thread that SC brought back from the dead (as he likes to do) and was surprised at how well-reasoned BB's posts were a few years ago when contrasted with how he usually writes now. 

Makes me feel like a dick for making old-age cracks if he really is suffering from some age-related issues.  Hopefully it's only because he's taken to drinking during the day. lol

^^^ Did not read.  Small bites if you want a response. 

Really?  Why is that?  Narcolepsy, ADD, porn addiction, that short-term memory condition like that of the guy from Memento or what?

Whatever your affliction, that seems pretty debilitating and you have my sympathy.

Hey, don't forget your helmet if you're gonna be walking around outside later, ok?
59  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: 10 reasons Im no longer a leftist. Good article on: July 28, 2014, 03:42:23 PM
Seems like most of the 10 reasons come down to "Leftist folks are irritating".  Something I agree with, actually. LOL

60  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: 16 for '16: The Most Talked-About Potential GOP Presidential Candidates on: July 28, 2014, 03:30:58 PM
Yeah, there's ol "RRKore" having nothing of substance to add again. 

Pointing out the the board's official conservative mod is trying to lie by saying he's unaware that Fox News pushes certain candidates has no substance, does it?

Please get real.  It's not possible that you're THAT out-of-touch with reality.
61  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Obama's Leadership on: July 28, 2014, 03:27:26 PM
You don't know what dishonest means?  Perhaps that's why you are dishonest.  It means not telling the truth.  For example, tt's attributing words to people that they never said.  It's claiming to read something you have never read.  I am so embarrassed for you.   Embarrassed

It is apparent to me that you have too much time on your hands, get immersed in minutiae, and have trouble focusing on simple issues.  But that's ok too.  Nobody is perfect.  But you should give an effort to stay on topic.  It's not that hard.  Well, maybe for you.   Undecided 

Holy reading comprehension, batman.  Did I ask for the meaning of the word "dishonest"?  No, I asked for YOUR meaning of the term "dishonest liberal".  Reasonably, I thought that it might be a semi-slang term I hadn't come across which has some sort of special meaning.  Because I wasn't sure, I asked.  (Uh-oh, I forgot that to ask means that I'm putting words in your mouth, right? lol)

Now I know that you recently disavowed any respect for the meanings of words and their usage, but I'm thinking that you're acquainted enough with language usage to know that sometimes a term made up of two common words will be coined that means something that isn't so obvious from the meanings of each of the two words by themselves.  Examples of such two-word terms are easy to think of if you combine 2 adjectives ("bad ass", for example) but also not unheard of when using an adjective + a noun (like "dishonest liberal") if you think for a minute.  "Tall tale" would be an example.  Sorry if I'm boring you -- you 'Murikan types who only talk a big game about being patriots often don't have much patience for language talk (especially when it comes to foreign languages.)

And why are you disparaging me for not staying on topic?  I tried.  Didn't I point out that you thinking that a political party leader spouting the party line (about a fellow politician's "leadership" -- and what a subjective term that is) was in no way remarkable?  What would have been newsworthy would have been for Pelosi to say the opposite.  

In response, all you did was reiterate that you thought it was terrible and then you tried to make it personal by saying you think I'm terrible, too.  You are weak as water sometimes, BB.

IMO, you're just a crabby old guy who should be locked up in a room with John McCain while the two of you are kept awake for 48 hours by rap music and video of screaming kids running across your lawns.
62  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: 16 for '16: The Most Talked-About Potential GOP Presidential Candidates on: July 28, 2014, 02:55:00 PM
So "Fox News" supports candidates?  How so? 

Yeah, there's ol' BB being honest again, lol.
63  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: The majority of Americans - Are they liberal? NEW POLL RESULTS on: July 28, 2014, 12:34:58 PM
...

And you should stay out of the way of my occasional toying with my personal whipping boy.  Don't interfere with my Monday entertainment. 

OK.   Man, you surprise me here.

(I would like you more if you'd say things like this more often.)
64  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Obama's Leadership on: July 28, 2014, 12:33:03 PM
lol.  You do an awful lot of projecting.  And you're one of those dishonest liberals.  But I'm used to your ilk. 

And listen grammar Nazi, I don't give a rip about my spelling, punctuation, or word usage on this board. 

Ok, you've piqued my curiosity:  In your book, what's a dishonest liberal vs an honest one?  Is this like one of those deals where you criticize other conservatives for not being conservative enough?

Regarding your excuse for your minor mistake using the word "ilk", it's been apparent to me for a while that accuracy is not important to you.  You're much more into "truthiness". 

BTW, LOL at you slipping "word usage" into your list of things only a "grammar Nazi" would care about.  Amusing and pathetic, lol. Grin Cry
65  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: The majority of Americans - Are they liberal? NEW POLL RESULTS on: July 28, 2014, 12:21:59 PM
Yes, I understand your world view is formed based on what a handful of anonymous people and gimmicks say on a message board.  That explains a lot. 

You seem to be losing the plot here, BB. 

240 isn't saying jack about his own world view, he's talking about how the political opinions of many self-described conservatives (both on GB and in the USA in general) support liberal policies.  He's posted links supporting these ideas.

You're just crabby and predisposed to personally insulting folks today, seems to me.   Actually, there's nothing too wrong with that (lol) but how about doing it and staying on point in the discussion, too?  Is that asking too much?
66  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Hillary: W actually made me feel proud to be American on: July 28, 2014, 12:13:58 PM
Trying to separate herself from Obama? 

That seems likely though she probably isn't a big fan of his in any case.
67  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Obama Eyes Giving Millions of Illegals Work Status on: July 28, 2014, 12:11:44 PM
So true and infuriating...

Hey, if we're gonna start criticizing USCIS, sign me up now. Angry
68  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Obama's Leadership on: July 28, 2014, 12:10:05 PM
Does not surprise me one bit that you are not embarrassed by Reid or Pelosi.  You're from the same ilk. 

Whateva, out-of-touch guy.  Frankly, you have a lot of goofy old-fashioned opinions about a lot of things so worrying about what you think seems pointless.

BTW, I'm pretty sure you're using the wrong preposition in your last sentence;  It's "of the same ilk" not "from the same ilk". 
If you're gonna use old-fashioned terms, ya might as well get it right, don't you think?
69  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: US military obtains new video of American soldier held in captivity on: July 28, 2014, 11:28:32 AM
Oh, then its perfectly fine  Roll Eyes

WTF, last time I checked you don't just get to choose to walk off duty in the military.

Playing the devil's advocate, it doesn't seem totally unreasonable to think that these days, with an all-volunteer army, maybe you should be able to leave when you want. 
70  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: The majority of Americans - Are they liberal? NEW POLL RESULTS on: July 28, 2014, 10:03:39 AM
Dude, there are a handful of people on the getbig political board who call themselves "very conservative" and who dislike liberals on a daily basis... yet they voted Clinton, they are a-okay with amnesty, etc.

Calling oneself conservative, while supporting so many lib causes, doesn't make one a conservative.  You might think it does, that's cool.  

Proof is in pudding--- americans keep choosing liberal presidents that line up with their liberal beliefs.  They talk about hating liberals and loving conservatism, but they have lib positions and choose lib candidates.

You keep on citing polls where people SELF DESCRIBE.   I'll keep citing polls where people consistently do this while chosing LIB POSITIONS ON THE ISSUES.

if you can't see the difference, sorry, but I think most getbiggers here will.   They're self-described conservatives who vote lib and have lib positions.  They're not really conservatives, dude.

Ya mean if it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck but says it's not a duck it might still be a duck?
71  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Obama's Leadership on: July 28, 2014, 10:00:19 AM
Nancy Pelosi is a space cadet.  This is one in a long line of statements that shows she is among the worst partisan ideologues in the country. 

Saying Obama's leadership is strong is pathetic.  

LOL.  She is old and often does give the impression that she's half-buzzed on some kind of prescription medication, it's true.  This ain't so uncommon among older politicians and old people in general, though.  

LOL at your naive "partisan ideologue" comment.  Consider me not shocked that the leader of any party is going to refrain from dissing their own party.  (Just because Pelosi isn't engaging Crowley on the subject of "optics" doesn't mean she isn't familiar with the subject - I think that she's completely aware of what the optics would be like if she were to diss the president's leadership on camera, don't you?)

You should be embarrassed that she leads your party.  Is there a dumber one-two combination in politics than Harry Reid and Pelosi?  I doubt it.   Embarrassed

If the prominent folks in other parties were any better, I might be embarrassed but that doesn't seem to be the case.

Honestly, the fact that this congress has done very little work bothers me much more than any "rah rah for my party" statements that those on either side might make.
72  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Obama's Leadership on: July 28, 2014, 09:21:56 AM
Aren't you liberals embarrassed to have this woman leading your party? 

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ttsONesDKV8" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ttsONesDKV8</a>

What does this question have to do with the vid you've posted? 

Is it because Crowley wants to talk about how things are being perceived by the public ("optics") and Pelosi is responding by talking about what is being done instead of how things look?
73  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Obama Declares War On Chic-Fil-A on: July 27, 2014, 09:39:43 AM
Why? Who's to say he wouldn't have kicked off at the same age if he didn't inject his body with all sorts of chemicals? Maybe he actually lived longer because he worked out.

I doubt it but that's a cool thought -- I wonder if I can get my wife to buy the idea, lol.
74  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: The Liberal Model Of Governance on: July 27, 2014, 09:35:05 AM
Not going to go through those one by one, but it looks like most if not all of those cities listed are ran by liberals.

Yeah, maybe. (I'm too lazy to check, too, lol.)

Not sure if it's so much a conservative/liberal thing.  Probably has more to do with the percentage of the population that is poor as hell.

Chicago= Liberal Utopia

Coming soon to your city...

What are you saying?  That websites like heyjackass for Chicago will be created for some other cities?

Or are you trying to say that Chicago is a particularly dangerous place if you're worried about being murdered?

Because...

Six Cities With Worst Murder Rates In United States
July 24, 2014 12:52 PM

By John Dodge

CHICAGO (CBS) — During roughly the past three decades, there have been six cities that have been the worst for murders, per capita.

If you said Chicago made that list you would be …

Wrong.

As CBS Chicago correspondent Mason Johnson has reported in great detail, Chicago is not the “murder capital” of anything.

Officially the FBI states the Chicago metro area murder rate is about 7 per 100,000 residents, but that includes much more than just the city itself.

Within the city limits, that rate climbs to around 18–about four times the national average rate of around 4.7 murders per 100,000 people.

Obviously, that is too many murders. In recent years, New York City and Los Angeles have fewer murders than Chicago.

Still, that figure comes nowhere close to the worst rates historically in the United States.

Here is the breakdown, according to an analysis by Pew Research. The number represents the highest murder rate during the time the city held the title of so-called “Murder Capital Of The United States.”

1985-1987: Detroit, 58.2 murders per 100,000 residents

1988-1992: Washington, D.C. 71.9

1993-1995: New Orleans 85.8

1996: Washington, D.C.

1997: Richmond, Va.

1998-1999: Washington, D.C.

2000-2004: New Orleans, 42.1

2005: Birmingham, Ala 44.3

2006: Detroit

2007-2009: New Orleans, 94.7 (2007, the highest rate during the years studied)

2010: Flint, Mich.

2011: New Orleans

2012: Flint, Mich. 62

That’s six cities that have swapped with each other for worst murder rates in the past 27 years. Two cities, New Orleans and Washington have had the worst murder problem for 19 of those 27 years.

New Orleans has ranked No. 1 for 11 of those years.

Washington D.C. for 8 eight.

While the statistics for this year won’t be available until 2015, Chicago is basically on pace for the same amount of murders as 2013, and much lower than 2012.

One can expect to see its murder rate to remain about the same, or perhaps a bit lower that 18/100,000, and nowhere near the worst in the country.
