Barack Obama, our next President

Where Crazy Conservative Memes Are Invented

Liberals talk a lot about Fox News and Rush Limbaugh and other conservative media that are on the mainstream radar. But liberals and mainstream journalists tend to forget that there is a fever swamp of crazed conspiracy theories and shockingly offensive rhetoric that exists in obscure right-wing websites and viral e-mail chains. As David Frum recently noted on his Daily Beast blog, it is impossible to understand the dog whistles you hear on Fox News if you aren’t familiar with the viral e-mail smears their audience believes in.

Plenty of good news for WalMart today after the right wing loons have been frothing at the mouth over a couple of anonymous emails.

18% increase in dividends__a 2.6% increase in profits after a somewhat sluggish start due to uncertainty about the payroll tax hike, fuel prices and that credit card bills from Christmas start showing up in February.

Fair or Foul: Is bill making gun control sponsors felons a joke? Nah. It's GOP reality.
This year, Mr. Leara and 61 of his colleagues sponsored another bill, House Bill 170, which would criminalize the enforcement of any new federal gun restrictions, be they passed by Congress or required under a presidential executive order. This bill would make criminals in Missouri of police officers, sheriff’s deputies, FBI agents and other law enforcement officials. The bill is taken seriously enough that it was scheduled for a hearing on Tuesday. Republican lawmakers are not treating it as a joke. To make a political point about how pro-gun and anti-President Barack Obama they are, they’re willing to sign their names to a bill that would put law enforcement officials in jail for doing their jobs.
Would applying that same logic to lawmakers really be that much of a stretch?
The National Rifle Association should send a letter to every Missouri lawmaker putting them on notice that every vote on House Bill 170 and House Bill 633 will be rated. That means that any vote against them would be a vote against the NRA and thus invite a primary challenge. So even though the bills are stupid and unconstitutional, Republicans would have to vote for them.
House Bill 633 isn’t a joke. It’s Ted Nugent being invited to the State of the Union speech. It’s Steven Seagal training armed vigilantes as school guards in Arizona. It’s the new Republican reality.

How to Be a Right-Wing Troll in Ten Easy Steps

1. Always act superior, even when your opponent clearly outclasses you intellectually (this will happen frequently).

2. Demand that your opponent provide evidence to prove their point, then dismiss the evidence based on its source when they do, no matter how widely-accepted or valid that source happens to be. If you can’t do that, lie and deny that you said what you said, or lie and say your opponent misinterpreted your statement and is now off topic. Failing those tactics: Change the subject.

3. Lie about all scientific and historical facts when they can’t be ignored; facts often get in the way of right-wing ideology. And don’t forget: No lie is too outrageous. Repeat the same lies loudly and often.

4. Project. A lot.

5. Take many, many cheap shots at prominent Democrats and your opponents, then decry the lack of civility in political discourse.

6. Be proud of your hypocrisy; being a hypocrite is essential to being a right-winger — and a troll. However, don’t acknowledge being a hypocrite. Instead, characterize yourself as being “principled” and try to rationalize your hypocrisy. Also, try to ignore that pesky cognitive dissonance!

7. Blame Bill Clinton, Barack Obama, and the Democratic Party for everything. EVERYTHING. The Huronian glaciation? Clinton’s fault. The Lindbergh kidnapping? Obama. The eventual supernova of Earth’s Sun billions of years from now? Nancy Pelosi and Russ Feingold. Nothing, absolutely NOTHING, is the fault of a Republican, even when it is.

8. Continually initiate contact with your opponents and, whenever they respond, falsely accuse them of cyberstalking you.

9. Abandon well-known Republicans (i.e. George W. Bush and Dick Cheney) when they become incredibly unpopular, and claim that they aren’t “real” conservatives while ignoring that they’re so far-right they make white supremacists look like members of the ACLU.

10. Secretly accept that you’re a minority and let yourself be consumed by your deep and abiding hatred of everyone and everything that doesn’t conform to your worldview (currently 99.99% of reality).

3D-printed ear created in lab
Children with a deformity called microtia have an intact inner ear but an external ear that fails to develop fully, causing hearing loss. The prevalence ranges from slightly fewer than one to as many as four babies per 10,000 births, depending on the country.

The artificial ears were made by producing a digital 3D image of a child's intact ear and feeding that into a 3D printer to produce an ear-shaped mold. Then the scientists injected a gel made of living cow ear cells and collagen (a substance used to make gelatin) into the mold, and out popped an ear.

The whole process took less than two days: half a day to design the mold, a day to print it, half an hour to inject the gel, and 15 minutes to allow it to set.

Then the researchers implanted the fabricated ears on the backs of rats, where the ears grew for one to three months. Creepy as it sounds, it isn't the first time scientists have grown ears on rodents, as a model for naturally growing ears.

In medicine, current replacement ears are made from a Styrofoam-like material or by an Eve-like genesis out of a patient's harvested rib. The latter is difficult and painful, and rarely produces an ear that works well or looks natural.

Like his father, Rainbow Racist Pig Extortionist Jesse Jackson, Sr., he tried to fleece the sheep but got caught sodomizing instead. The Poop doesn't fall far from the Poopchute, as they say.
Note: He's crying. This is because he got caught and not because he's sorry. Recall how Rainbow Racist Pig Extortionist Jesse Jackson, Sr. got caught financing a million dollar home and a hideaway love-child in Southern CA a few years ago? Did you donate to his causes, too? Sucker.
And, today, that same Rainbow Racist Pig Extortionist Jesse Jackson, Sr. calls on the Boy Messiah to use America's private pension funds to help finance a plan to help his "poor" people.
Brother Kwame's raping of Detroit is fast becoming emblematic of the Boy Messiah's activities and that of his Jesse Sharpton crowd.

Also you're wrong. In my younger days I used a twelve gauge side by side to hunt pheasant and usually hit it from a room distance away. The shot didn't penetrated all that far into the bird just enough to kill it. When Dick Cheney shot his friend it was at a much closer range and it didn't kill him did it? While a bird shot pellet may penetrate the skin of a washing machine it won't penetrate a wall and even if it did it wouldn't have enough power left to actually kill or even seriously injure someone unlike a high power rifle round.

Female internet trolls, are far more scary then their male counterparts. Female trolls seem to better able to delude themselves into believing that their behavior is not only accepted online but that the traits that they find so well received (they are not) will transfer well to real life. usually ends badly.
