Bwahahaha!  Thank you.  Now that's what I'm talking about.  I love it when you try and sound smart.   Grin   lol . . . .


D-d-d-d-dodge. 

C'mon Bum, did the "very wise man" say that you need to make distinctions among your group of critics or not?

We have enough laws already

SC, you don't really believe that simple-minded BS, do you?

I'm not saying that Obama isn't fucking up by some of the decisions he's making but I AM saying that folks in congress are not doing their jobs.

i see fluke as a whiny mess, never defended her, never will.

but she became a national celeb, which means the $ she probably saw - from book deal, from appearance fees, from sitting on some bullshit board/committee, whatever... plus starting a job and likely a high profile place, due to her liberal notoriety...

So yeah, I don't think it's crazy at all, that she's rolling in the dough, FOUR years later.   A lot can happen in 4 years, finishing law school, being the poster child for that stuff.   Heck, if you clerk in the supreme court, your signing bonus can be $280k.... just to START a law firm.  So yeah, her having $100k, after being the poster child like that.... it's not unreasonable at all.

But ya know, we dislike her for political reasons, so yeah, its perfectly understandable to trash her for any reason we can.

This.

(Except that I think if she lost about 40 pounds she'd be hittable.)

I'm sure you are a simpleton.  No doubt about that. 

Oh, I get it:  I used the word "sure" in my question.  And then you used the word "sure" in your answer (where you engaged in name-calling).

Clever!! 

Which sandbox did you learn this from?
55  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Is it just about being right/winning the argument? on: August 01, 2014, 01:07:11 PM
Simpleton Simon, a very wise man once told me that your critics define you.  So, you have to consider the source.  When really intelligent people are all saying the same thing, you have to step back and reassess.  When a handful of weirdos say the same thing, that's probably a good thing.  (You would be the weirdo in this scenario.) 

Yeah, your definition of weirdo seems to be anyone who has different beliefs than you.  Function of your solipsistic nature, I expect.    (Sorry for the big word, chief.)

And I'm "The" weirdo?  According to what you wrote I'm one of a "handful of weirdos", aren't I?

Also, did this very wise man only say "your critics define you" or did he add all that other stuff about intelligent people and weirdos?  Because, "your critics define you" is ludicrously weakened (almost dodged, really) by saying, "Oh, but that only applies to the critics I approve of".  If you don't immediately see what I mean then you are just dumb.

56  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Obama speaking live right now- already blaming republicans for everything on: August 01, 2014, 12:54:03 PM
Basically saying congress 'isnt doing anything' and is 'standing in the way of progress'...

...

Gee, I wonder why he's saying that?
57  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: MSNBC has lowest ratings in nearly a decade - LMFAO!!! Ha Ha Ha!!! on: August 01, 2014, 12:48:58 PM
Your request for percentages is retarded.  Nobody keeps track of ideology and bias that way.  Pretty dumb way to approach the issue if you ask me.   

You sure about this BB? 

I know you were raised during a time when the abacus was cutting edge technology but things are a little different now...
58  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Is it just about being right/winning the argument? on: August 01, 2014, 12:46:44 PM
You're starting to bore me.  Can you try and say something smart so I can get my Friday morning laugh in?  Thanks.   Smiley

Yeah, when ya keep hearing the same sort of criticism from people over and over, I'm sure it does get old.
59  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Ventura wins $1.8M from Chris Kyles estate on: August 01, 2014, 12:44:11 PM
Maybe you should actually read the book....

He was working with returning soldiers with PTSD, volunteering his time to try and make their lives better... hes a texan and down there,  shooting IS a relaxing pass time,  as it is for many former Marined and Soldiers.

Kyle loved his country and his fellow soldiers and put himself into harms way many times to try and save others lives where he didnt have to...  INCLUDING handing his rifle off to a Marine, taking the Marines M16, and leading the other Marines into houses to try and keep them alive (since he had far more extensive training on how to clear houses as a SEAL)....

Dude didnt have to do that, he could have stayed in his hide and watched Marines go in the house and come out carrying their dead, But he didnt. He put himself in danger over and over rather than let others die... he also did as much volunteer work as he could with returning soldiers and started a group to help them as he felt they weren't being taken car of....


He was 10x the human most of us are, myself included

Not sure what you mean.  I think any and everyone would agree that his volunteer work was totally commendable.

I'm just saying that a guy who took so many lives with a gun and then had his own life taken with a gun will cause a lot of folks to consider the concept of Karma. 

Doesn't matter if many considered him a righteous killer or not.

"Global" warming and all you're citing is weather in the USA?  Am I missing something?
61  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Is it just about being right/winning the argument? on: August 01, 2014, 12:28:33 PM
Actually I find lots of things funny.  I am easily amused.  But I don't find you funny (except I do find your futile attempts to sound smart pretty amusing).  Sometimes you say something that is a little humorous.  But by and large, you're a dud.  I don't find you particularly bright.  You're a hack.  Your ability to understand and discuss complex matters is horrendous.  You try way too hard to sound intelligent.  You're not.

But that's ok.  We need you.  Have to maintain the board bell curve.   Smiley  

Sometimes I'm a "little humorous" and you don't find me "particularly bright"?  I'm gonna take those as grudging and deliberately understated compliments since my own voiced opinions of you have been so harsh that you can't exactly be my biggest fan.  So thanks, lol.

BTW, on serious note, you are about the last person who ought to complain about anyone's lack of ability to discuss complex matters.  Everything with you boils down to your gut reaction which you then try to rationalize.  That's not really so much different than what most people do but you go farther by often remaining intentionally ignorant because of your refusal to learn more facts about a subject especially when those facts would seem to threaten the validity of your viewpoints.  If that's not hacky, I don't know what is.

To me, you seem like an old guy with old-fashioned views about most things who, because he wants so much to achieve some sort of validation, will argue that his beliefs are rationale even if that argument is knowingly dishonest and requires him to be willfully ignorant of relevant facts.  

So, actually, I change my mind:  Being a hack would be a step up for you.

True conservatism is ill-served by your kind.

I love hearing all the RINOS and the democrats like peter king get their panties twisted over Cruz...

"Waaahh, we were already to go on vacation, we had our little bandaid, cave-in legislation all ready to go as usual, so we could tell our constituents we 'did something', and here comes Cruz again trying to get us to do the right thing!! Ugh i hate him!!"

Hahhaha, fucking losers, the american people are laughing at you. Cruz is the only one actually trying to fix the problem

Speaking of congressional vacation:
63  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Ventura wins $1.8M from Chris Kyles estate on: August 01, 2014, 12:44:56 AM
Chris Kyle? Isn’t he the one who thought that it would be just crackingly brilliant to take a mental case shooting rather than…fishing?

Ouch!

Given Kyle's main claim to fame and considering the manner of his tragic death, you do not need to be a Buddhist to start wondering about Karma...

R.I.P.
64  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Is it just about being right/winning the argument? on: August 01, 2014, 12:33:46 AM
What do I consider funny?  You.  Not your incredibly lame attempted humor.  Your pseudo-intellectual commentary, which is often mindless, drone, simplistic left-wing gibberish.  
LOL.  Of course you don't think anything I say is funny, BB.  I criticize you way too much for you to let your guard down long enough for real laughter.  You're actually kind of a wuss, BB.  Look how defensively you avoid saying what you think is funny because you fear being attacked for your taste in humor.

Seems to me that when folks criticize you unfairly, you don't care.  But when they call you out for your more obvious forays into intellectual dishonesty, hypocrisy, or flat-out illogical and inconsistent reasoning, that's when you get a little pissy and start name-calling.   

And me, pseudo-intellectual?  Seriously? LOL  I'm no sort of academic at all.  That you would think that indicates your own lack of academic achievement, I think.  (Either that or you've grown so used to talking with meatheads that you think there's something odd about someone who has a bigger vocabulary or better grasp of grammar than you.)

FWIW, I'm just a persnickety old logical bodybuilder who's served 4 years in the US army before going back to school, had a lot of foreign language training (in the army and in college) who now works as a "blackbox-style" QA tester for a 3rd party testing house where I mainly do performance testing and write up bugs (problems) I encounter with pre-released mobile wireless devices.

The reason I mention all of that is that I think that the way I write is reasonably appropriate for a guy with my background.  In other words, I don't write for a living and think it's obvious.  If you consider my writing to be even pseudo-intellectual, it means you're kinda dumb.

Now go get you shine-box, LOL.

65  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Ronald on Immigration on: July 31, 2014, 12:08:20 PM
Im not xenophibic at all! I love learning about and experiencing different cultures and the world.

There are several key reasons why the current immigration wave is different than previous ones, and all the factors compound each other; first the current mass wave has been going continuously for decades, with no immigration moratoriums at all to allow for assimilation, as was done in the past. They just keep pouring in endlessly, in unprecedently huge numbers (30-40million in the last 20 or so years?)

Second, for most of american history the immigrants came legally, AND WERE PROCESSED. We knew more or less who was coming in, and they were checked for diseases. Now, we have no idea who is coming in, whether they are criminals or not, or what they are bringing with them, healthwise or weapons wise. Millions of people just cross our borders and disappear into our communities.

Third, previously there was no welfare state, safety net, or special treatment at all. Immigrants had to assimilate into society, and sink or swim on their own. Those who made it stayed, and those who didnt were not supported in perpetuity by society-they went back home. Nowdays, they come FOR the freebies and special treatment; all they have to do is get here, and they know the taxpayers will provide for all their needs. This is a drastically different motivation for coming and does not facilitate becoming productive members of society nor does it facilitate assimilation.

Lastly, a critical and little known fact is that prior to the 1964, 90% of immigrants were europeans, people with similar cultures and ideologies. Since 1964, 90% of our immigrants have come from the third world. Our core european population, which founded and built this nation and turned it into a place where everyone on earth wants to come, is declining, and being replaced by immigrants and cultures who have come from failed nations...its not hard to see where this will lead.

My evaluation of your nice lengthy post.

1st paragraph:  Good.  Me, too.

2nd paragraph:  Pretty good.  I think it makes sense that the bigger the population of immigrants, the more resistant to assimilation they'll be.

3rd paragraph:  Everyone needs to be tracked?  WTF?  If you're in favor of strong gun control laws, then I'll buy this argument from ya.  Otherwise, this is weak.  The immigration system is fucked up.  Anyone who's had any dealings with USCIS knows this.  

4th paragraph:  Pretty decent.  Speaks to economic difficulties when number of immigrants is too big.

5th and last paragraph:  Complete poop.  Holy shit, did you get this argument from Stormfront?  This is some utter freakin' racist bullshit.  Oh, your people come from a failed nation so obviously you'll never amount to anything?  What kind of old-fashioned bell curve nonsense is this?  Also, does your 90% of pre-1964 immigrants include the unwilling ones?  Africa is not Europe.  And what even constitutes a non-failed state in your mind?  Like, how about all our immigrants from Asia?  Asia isn't in Europe but aren't post 1964 immigrants from many countries in Asia (including India) doing pretty well?  You undercut all your other arguments with this one.

Nah.  I just think you are an unfunny simpleton. 

Whateva, liar.

Besides "classic" Bugs Bunny (lol) what do you consider funny? 

And please, try to restrain yourself from making references to anything that happened before the 1950's.

67  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Another liberal liar on: July 31, 2014, 11:30:02 AM
No - I give credit to the guy who can get it up to hit that.   Nasty!!!! 

Really?  I thought she was a little heavy but not ugly. 

Hmmm.  Need to do some research...
68  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Liberal Hypocrisy on: July 31, 2014, 11:28:33 AM
...

Ok.  I've heard enough.

Thank you.  This thread is dumb. 

Holy shit, Michael Moore isn't a saint?  Stop the presses!  I mean, for fuck's sake just because he doesn't live like a monk on a mountain top doesn't mean that he doesn't make good points about some of capitalism's pitfalls.  Wasn't there recently a book about the life of Jesus Christ written by some scholarly academic who happened to be Muslim?  (Hmmm, this comparison isn't so great when I think about it, but screw it.)

Other than when you accidentally posted that satirical news item, this thread is boring, too.

BTW, Bears, I think you're a standup guy for the way you admitted your mistake there.  You did not beat around the bush or make retarded excuses.  Rare for this place. 

Kudos, honestly.

Don't forget "what an ignoranimous."   Cheesy

Comparing pictures used to try and make a serious point with a classic cartoon used to mock you just further demonstrates that you earned your nickname.  lol

Classic cartoon?  You're dating yourself, I think.

Your point would be funnier and more in keeping with your age group (lol) if you'd substituted "moving pictures" for "classic cartoon".

I read it.  It says she was claiming to be poor in 2010.  Did she take some oath of poverty since then or what?

It's 2014 now and she isn't poor anymore.  What's the big deal, Coach?
72  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Ronald on Immigration on: July 31, 2014, 11:05:21 AM
So Obama's failed economy has kept it down?

I guess you could say that (though of course some will quibble about Obama being responsible for the economy).

Honestly, what's going on in the USA is only half the story.  

How bad shit is (with regard to economics and security) in immigrants' native countries is the other half.
73  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Is it just about being right/winning the argument? on: July 31, 2014, 11:00:43 AM
I actually agree with you.   Shocked

Shocker. 

Liars think everyone lies.  Thieves think everyone steals.  BB thinks everyone is intellectually dishonest.
74  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Impeachment? Hahahaha on: July 31, 2014, 10:58:36 AM
Yep.  Trying to make a point by using pictures without context is pretty meaningless. 


A video clip of Bug Bunny saying "What a maroon!", on the other hand...LOL
75  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Ronald on Immigration on: July 31, 2014, 10:56:26 AM
No, Bush or maybe Clinton did. The low point for immigration was right after the economy crashed in 2008. Obama wasn't in office long enough to have caused that crisis.

This makes sense to me.  Annual immigration went down when prospects for paying jobs went down.
