Brown and Warren Leave Libertarians in Tough Spot

|

Brown v. Warren

In 2010 Scott Brown shocked the political world when he defeated Attorney General Martha Coakley in a special election to replace the late Ted Kennedy in the U.S. Senate. With that victory Brown became not only the first Republican to represent the Commonwealth in the Senate since Ed Brooke in the 1970s, he became one of the more high profile GOP'ers in the country. Brown's win over Coakley was even more special for Republicans because it came at the peak of the national fight over national health care reform, a longtime goal of Kennedy's.

At the same time, Harvard Law professor Elizabeth Warren was busy building her national profile overseeing the allocation of TARP funds as chairman of the Congressional Oversight Panel. Later in 2010 Warren would help build the foundation for the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, a new agency mandated by the Dodd-Frank financial reform law. With these high-profile positions under her belt, and already a darling of the left for her attacks on the financial sector and the lending industry, Warren was now the highest profile consumer advocate in the nation since Ralph Nader.  When it became clear in the summer of 2011 that she would not become the director of the new bureau, Warren left her D.C. posts and returned to Massachusetts where rumors of a run for U.S. Senate refused to die.

Could this electorally inexperienced consumer advocate successfully break into Massachusetts Democratic politics and then, then!, take on one of the best politicians the Commonwealth has seen in the last 25 years? 

Yes, because local and national Democrats were not happy with the field lining up to challenge Brown.

Only a few short months after returning to her home in Cambridge Warren announced her run for Senate and quickly cleared the Democratic field of all potentially serious challengers. Newton Mayor Setti Warren, thought to be a rising star in state politics, quickly bowed out along with philanthropist Alan Khazei. Warren hired two of the most prominent Democratic strategists in the state, Doug Rubin and Kyle Sullivan, both veterans of tough statewide races.

Brown did not appear worried by her entry into the race. He had spent the last two years positioning himself as a moderate and bracing for what he and his aides expected would be a grueling reelection fight. He brought back many of the same people that helped in 2010, particularly Mitt Romney adviser Eric Fehrnstrom.

Yet he also shed the Tea Party support that helped him get elected in 2010 and refashioned himself as the Third Senator from Maine. His voting record backs this up, as Brown tends to break with his party as much as Susan Collins and Olympia Snowe.

Like most incumbents, Brown has a significant fundraising advantage, but Warren's recent fundraising hauls have shown that she can hang with him. Brown announced today that he raised $3.4 million last quarter while Warren has announced only her haul from Massachusetts, just a little over $2.5 million.  Both of them have signed onto an agreement that discourages third-party advertising called "The People's Pledge." The pledge has been roundly panned by free speech advocates while embraced by proponents of campaign finance reform. (I called the pledge "hogwash" in a post on my Boston.com blog.)

Most polls since January indicate that the race is close with a slight edge going to Brown and also show both candidates are liked by the public. Several people have pulled papers to run as independents but none of them have significant name recognition or the political organization needed to qualify for the ballot. No Libertarians or Greens have pulled papers either. So with no alternative options available at the ballot box what's a libertarian to do in this race? On one side you have a mostly moderate Republican that loves the drug war and voted for Dodd-Frank. On the other side you have a Democrat that just loves talking about how awesome the social contract is and oversaw the Wall Street bailout. Of course, one can always leave it blank or write-in Big Bird.

  1. He brought back many of the same people that helped in 2010, particularly Mitt Romney adviser Eric Fehrnstrom.

    Well, this is a new election so it’ll be like an Etch-a-Sketch.

    1. (Datebi.C0M)

      1. (D a t e b i. C 0 M)

      2. Whew, it’s a good thing we’ve got mandatory registration to prevent spam!

  2. Given the quality of candidates I get to vote on for Senator in Oklahoma, I’d be thrilled to have a choice like Warren or Brown.

    1. Yeah, Inhofe is the stupidest POS in the Senate, no doubt.

      Oklahoma is doing the country no favors.

      1. cough**Boxer**cough
        cough**Feinstein**cough

        1. Nobody even considers CA anymore. It’s a given. Face it, you are a lost cause and a liability Sloop.

          1. You know, I’d threaten to slap you if you weren’t correct. Alas…

            1. Chuck Schumer +? dumber than Inhofe.

      2. Yeah, Inhofe is the stupidest POS in the Senate, no doubt.

        Loves ya some Bernie Sanders, eh Shrieky Baby?

        Don’t you have some “Sarah” prOn to watch or date rape odds to Intrade?

        1. Inhofe has claimed that US foreign policy should be set according to Bible verses and that the separation of church and state is the greatest hoax in US history.

          That is just for starters. He is a fucking idiot of the highest order.

          1. Inhofe has claimed that US foreign policy should be set according to Bible verses

            Linky?

            that the separation of church and state is the greatest hoax in US history.

            Ah, Hugo Black’s disingenuous bastard child penumbra. Well done! I suspect you and Zombie Justice Black have much in common.

            1. Here – the stupid is record thick in this Senate statement.

              http://inhofe.senate.gov/pressreleases/peace.htm

              1. Wow Shriek! I realize there is too much ChristFag in there for you, but most of his arguments are not without merit.

                How come you never scream JewFags as well? Is this glut of AGW CO2 giving you a little anoxia? Or is it the aneuploidy?

                1. Notice he never says “Muslim-fags”…

                  1. Eh, it’s a spoof, FIFY. I won’t be engaging it anymore. A good spoof, but a spoof nonetheless.

                    1. You’re right… besides, it’s bereft of “Christ-fag”, so it must be another, weaker-sauced cocksucker.

                  2. Wouldn’t that be “MohammedFags?”

                    1. Good catch, Brandon.

          2. At least he isn’t afraid Oklahoma is going to capsize. No matter how much that would improve the world.

            1. Oh, hell, Senate.

            2. Oh, hell, Senate.

            3. Hey now, we have oodles of natural gas and lots of oil shale here. OK has it’s uses. Cheap cost of living and fantastic property values. Some of the lowest unemployment numbers, I might add, and they’re still dropping. Now if they’d just knock it with the “sustainable development” fraud…

              It may be flyover country, but for the time being, it’s home.

              1. Wouldn’t Oklahoma capsizing make it easier to get at the shale oil? And put an end to T. Boone Pickens’ naked rentseeking? Win-win.

            4. My Congressman!

              The 4th in GA is a hoot. I still miss Cynthia McKinney but Hank is pulling his weight in keeping up the lulz.

      3. Murray?

        McCain?

        Sanders?

  3. I think it boils down to this: If Warren is elected, will the Drug War abate so much as a single fired shot? No. Will Obama’s loopier legislation be opposed? No. Will we see a budget passed by the Senate? Not likely.

    OTOH, will Brown vote to jettison Obamacare? Possibly. Will he oppose Obama’s more destructive policies being codified into legislation? Probably.

    In short, Brown is a slightly tastier flavor of crap.

  4. So with no alternative options available at the ballot box what’s a libertarian to do in this race?

    What is a libertarian doing living in Massachusetts in the first place?

    1. What is a libertarian doing living in Massachusetts in the first place?

      Like we have room to talk living in The Peoples Golden Republic of California.

      1. Speaking of CA, and relevant to yesterday’s discussion of the disaster in Hercules, CA, comes this article in the WSJ:
        http://online.wsj.com/article_….._email_bot

        This is very relevant for my little hilly semi-rural suburb — the Bay Area govt assoc ABAG mentioned in the article is threatening to withhold all our city of 18,000’s road repair funds unless we build a transit village. Great idea in a town where it is all nuclear families living on about an acre each, and we are 30 minutes from the city. Anyone who’d want to live in a high-rise would understandably want to be in San Francisco, Oakland or Berkeley, so why are they forcing all suburbs to have urban districts that no one will want to live in?

        1. Holy shit. That’s a great article. I knew about the ABAG deal, but I was unaware of the SCAG deal. And I’m trying to figure out how it will be in LA County and 5 others. Are they gonna try to impose this on Riverside and San Bernadino County residents in addition to LA County, OC, Ventura and San Diego? Or are they going to go after San Bernadino and/or Imperial? Either way, there’s no way in hell those people will stand for that shit. No. Fucking. Way.

          1. It’s the Keep our Home Values High plan pushed by the party that looks out for the little guy.

            Voters in this state are fucking idiots.

        2. the Bay Area govt assoc ABAG mentioned in the article is threatening to withhold all our city of 18,000’s road repair funds unless we build a transit village.

          Elizabeth Warren is in CA too?

    2. Some libertarians are born into Massholism, Hugh. It’s not Garrett’s fault.

      1. Is there a 12 step program for that? There sure aren’t enough drugs…

        1. Step 1: Say the word, chow-der properly.

          1. Unpossible.

    3. So with no alternative options available at the ballot box what’s a libertarian to do in this race?

      How is this story any different in any other state in the union? Other than Paul, are their any viable libertarian alternatives? If you want to vote for someone who can actually get elected, you vote for TR or TB. Fuck you, that’s why.

      1. Here in Michigan we have Justin Amash. Look for him to continue Ron Paul’s role in the house when Paul retires.

        Unfortunately, I am not in his district, I am represented by Dave Camp, a typically obnoxious republican.

    4. Isn’t there an LP candidate? what’s this “no alternative options” BS?

      1. Read the article maybe?

  5. Not trying to be a dick here, but Coakley was the state Attorney General.

  6. Say what you want about Scott brown, but Elizabeth Warren is just a despicable human being.

    Her words: There is nobody in this country who got rich on his own. Nobody. You built a factory out there? Good for you, but I want to be clear: you moved your goods to market on the roads the rest of us paid for; you hired workers the rest of us paid to educate; you were safe in your factory because of police forces and fire forces that the rest of us paid for. You didn’t have to worry that marauding bands would come and seize everything at your factory, and hire someone to protect against this, because of the work the rest of us did. Now look, you built a factory and it turned into something terrific, or a great idea? God bless. Keep a big hunk of it. But part of the underlying social contract is you take a hunk of that and pay forward for the next kid who comes along.”

    Fuck this scumbag.

      1. Not to mention that if all the government did was cops(just protecting citizens rights), roads, and schools libertarians would be pretty damn pleased.

        That’s why Warren’s argument is disingenuous; she doesn’t want to stop at vital infrastructure. She wants complete government control over every facet of every citizen’s life.

        Okay Lizzy, you can have yer fuckin’ roads but we’re takin’ everything else back. Deal?

        1. Why give them cops, roadz, and schools? The government run roads are the most dangerous place on the planet, the schools let them brainwash the kids, and there are plenty of cautionary tales about government cops on Reason.

          1. Still, if cops, roads and schools was the starting point, it would be a much better situation than the current “everything” that we’re arguing against.

    1. In a sane and just world, Elizabeth Warren, whilst leading one of her petulant foot-stamping fest, that she has the gall to call a ‘protest’, would be seized upon by the very lumpenproletariat that she cynically uses to fuel her political machine.

      At first, they will merely try to rip her signature tacky pearl necklace off her neck; but then, as the mob is induced to frenzy by the chance to loot, the abuse that her body takes will make Laura Logan’s Cario ordeal seem like a mere schoolyard shoving match.

      Her last experiences in this mortal realm will be of pain and the primal fear that comes with asphyxiation as she finally sees the true face of her looter’s “social contract”.

      1. As one who ascribes to the non-aggression principle, I would be unable to step in and assist her as she is devoured into the mob she happily helped to organize.

      2. Now there is some classic HM Death-PrOn-O-Matic nightmare fuel. Very disturbing.

        Well done.

    2. I love how her and people like Tony use this as an argument. Like the factory owner didn’t pay any taxes himself to educate kids, build roads, and pay cops. Nope, he and his widget factory just fell from the sky.

      Too bad they couldn’t land on her like that house that landed on her sister.

    3. But that’s what pretty much everybody believes, it’s just a matter of how much emphasis they put on it.

    4. What?

      You didn’t realize that the rich, those paying 60% of all taxes in this country, are actually freeloading off those that pay no taxes?

  7. Fuck this scumbag.

    That’s just…eww.

  8. Yet he also shed the Tea Party support that helped him get elected in 2010 and refashioned himself as the Third Senator from Maine. His voting record backs this up, as Brown tends to break with his party as much as Susan Collins and Olympia Snowe.

    Behold, the real Shit Flopney!

    “But…but…BLUE STATE!!! He had no choice!”

    More proof, IMO, that the objectives of TEAM RED and TEAM BLUE ramify way more often than they bifurcate.

    Much like an Ozarks family clan…

    1. More proof, IMO, that the objectives of TEAM RED and TEAM BLUE ramify anastamose way more often than they bifurcate.

      FTFY?

      1. If you mean anastamosis in the Human Centipede mode, then yes, you are more accurate.

      2. Nope. Ramify means to come together. Bifurcate means to split. Anastamose means to surgically attach two or more lumens together, like Shriek and his human centipede whores.

        1. ram?i?fy
          Form branches or offshoots; spread or branch out

          bi?fur?cate
          Divide into two branches or forks

          anastamose
          (Anastamoses) An anastomosis (plural anastomoses, from gr. ???????????, communicating opening) in a network of streams is the reconnection of two streams that previously branched out, such as blood vessels or leaf veins. The term is used in medicine, biology, mycology and geology.

          1. Used as a medical term denoting direction, FdA. Arteries bifurcate; veins ramify. If I am mistaken, then I have years of charts and surgical case dictation that is seriously in question.

            ramus (r??ms),
            n 1. a branch of an artery, nerve, or vein. In the
            Basle Nomina Anatomica terminology, the term ramus is given to a primary division of a nerve or blood vessel.
            n 2. any constant branch of a fissure, or sulcus, of the brain.

            Mosby’s

            1. Just goin’ off Google dictionary Doc. Whatever you medicos agree to is fine with me.

              I’m a simple country boy and a product of public schools. I’m WAY over my head here and need to look up 20 words in a given day. 😉

              1. Which is 20 more than your average lazy ass pubescent germbag does in a semester, much less a school year. Today’s yoots just substitute “like”, “dude”, “schnizzle”, “_______-licious” and “whoa” for the big words.

                I’m a simple country boy and a product of public schools.

                Doesn’t mean that you’re stupid, FdA. I was cured of that “twang” prejudice but good in early adulthood.

            2. Sorry, Doctor, but I believe you are mistaken:

              ramify (r?m??-f?) To branch; to spread out in different directions.

              anastamose (?-n?s?t?-m?s) [Gr. anastamosis, opening] 1. To communicate directly or by means of connecting two parts together, esp. nerves or blood vessels. 2. To make such a connection surgically.

              Taber’s

              1. Noted mensan, but which way does blood flow in a vein: to the heart or away from it? (there is an exception to this, keep reading)

                The great saphenous veins being a prime example, travels to the heart or away? They both bifurcate and ramify depending on blood flow, forming a large network of blood vessels superficially and intramuscularly. Seriously, mensan, I do this for a living.

                Veins carry de-oxygenated blood, arteries oxygenated, with two exceptions pulmonary arteries (de-ox) and pulmonary veins (ox).

                My definition is correct; IANM.

                1. My argument has nothing to do with the branching of vessels, it has to do with your incorrect use of the word ramify. Furcate and ramify are synonyms. A bifurcation is a specific type of ramification where there are exactly two branches. Where two or more branches join together into one is an anastomosis.

                  You’re not the only one who does this for a living.

                  1. Furcate and ramify are synonyms.

                    Correct. Both meaning “branching”, for the sake of brevity.

                    A bifurcation is a specific type of ramification where there are exactly two branches.

                    Correct. “Bi” is the operative prefix.

                    Where two or more branches join together into one is an anastomosis.

                    Correct. As in the common iliac veins ramifying (branching together) into a bifurcation (meaning only two common iliac veins) distally into the proximal ramification of the inferior vena cavae.

                    Anastomosis in this context I was referring in the intial (albeit sloppy) definition was alluding to an end-to-end anastomosis, where two lumen are sutured together.

                    Jeebus, are you related to Tulpa?

                  2. Putting that aside, the point of the joke that the TEAMS objectives converge way more often than diverge.

                    Essentially a poor incest derivative joke was the point. Which I think you got.

                2. IANM? I am not a man?

                  1. IANM

                    I am not mistaken.

                    1. This argument is awesome, by the way.

  9. Brown is terrible, not even close to a fiscal conservative. But even he is better than Warren, who is actively hostile to the very concept of finance. The last thing the Senate needs is a reflexively anti-business populist. I really have no room to make fun, as I live in Ohio, which never has good people running for local or state office usually. At least the LP qualifies for the ballots though.

    1. The last thing the Senate needs is ANOTHER reflexively anti-business populist.

  10. As sloopy pointed out above with that quote, Warren is a liberty-hating socialist that thinks that government is society and that to oppose government is to oppose society. So fuck her.

    Brown is the archetypal RINO, but I think occasionally he might vote on something not terrible.

    1. Damning…praise…faint…

      1. True, but he’s right.

        Just to clarify where I stand: Scott Brown is a fool. He believes in government solutions to every problem. He is a drug-warrior douche. And he supports restricting the 1A when election time rolls around.

        And he’s 100x better than the liberty-hating, evil bag of filth that is Elizabeth Warren.

    2. RINO? That is an odd term for an LPer to use. You want a hard-core Republican, don’t you?

      Yep, there are TWO real libertarians on this fucking board. The purity test is a killer.

      1. I was wondering when you were gonna crawl out of your hole to take a dump, shreik. Good afternoon!

        1. I’m still laughing at “RINO” – God damn, Brown is not Republican enough for H&R!

          1. shrike|4.8.12 @ 4:34PM|#
            “I’m still laughing at “RINO”…”
            And everyone else is laughing at that strawman you carry around.

            1. Yeah, shrikey-poo is a human fire hazard.

            2. Not a strawman. When you complain that one is a RINO you are saying you prefer an authentic Republican.

              Scott Brown is probably the most libertarian Senator now serving. I would vote for him over the two douchebags from my state.

              1. Scott Brown is probably the most libertarian Senator now serving.

                Now that’s a fucking gut buster Shriek! Thank you for confirming your consanguinity that I’ve long suspected.

                Jeff Flake? Rand Paul?

                Shriek == ImbecileFag

                1. Rand Paul opposes a woman’s right to reproductive liberty and the Right to Privacy.

                  He is a LINO, so to speak.

                  1. Rand Paul opposes a woman’s right to reproductive liberty and the Right to Privacy.

                    He is a LINO, so to speak.

                    Do we really have to do this today?

                    Rand Paul supports the human rights of people who have not been born yet. If there’s a more libertarian perspective, I haven’t seen it yet, you stupid asshole.

                  2. Rand Paul opposes a woman’s right to reproductive liberty

                    Dumbass-shrike-says-what, now?

                    He is a LINO, so to speak.

                    Shriek isn’t even sure what he’s supposed to support if it didn’t come from the KosKids and yet he has crowned himself High Grand Inquisitor of Libertarianism.

                    What a gutbuster.

                  3. As opposed to Scott Brown, who thinks President Bush should be allowed to strip anyone of their citizenship unilaterally.

                    One of the entertaining things about this thread is watching Shrike announce proudly to the world that he is a Bush-pig.

                    Oink… oink…

                  4. So Scott Brown is libertarian-leaning even though he supported the Patriot Act extensions, the NDAA, he supported water-boarding (http://www.boston.com/news/local/massachusetts/articles/2010/01/05/brown_coakley_clash_over_suspected_terrorists_rights/), the drug war, etc.

                    Rand Paul opposed the Patriot Extensions(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZSDBswx90Cs), the NDAA, has fought Chuck Schumer on his attempt to expand the drug war, he also attempting to stop another war,(http://spectator.org/blog/2012/04/03/rand-pauls-war-on-promiscuous). And he’s a LINO? Dude, what are you smoking?

                  5. LINO? He’s a Republican in name.

                2. Jeff Flake? Rand Paul?

                  Flake is still in the house. But he will get my vote to replace the piece of shit known as Jon Kyl.

                  1. Flake is still in the house.

                    True that TB. I realized that right after I typed that. I don’t think he will have a problem replacing Kyl.

              2. shrike|4.8.12 @ 4:55PM|#
                “Not a strawman.”

                Dipshit, no one else claimed he wasn’t ‘republican enough to post at H&R’.
                Does that thing get heavy after you put the fires out?

              3. When you complain that one is a RINO you are saying you prefer an authentic Republican.

                No, he’s saying that one doesn’t fit the profile of an authentic Republican. He makes no statement as to his preference.

      2. ASM wasn’t complaining that Brown is a RINO you idiot. He was merely stating a fact.

        Context clues, how do they work?

  11. This isn’t the Douche vs Turd Sandwich election. It’s the Douche vs Firehose full of human excrement, pig vomit and dead fetuses being shoved in one’s mouth and turned on full-blast.

    And Scott Brown is a douche.

  12. It’s hilarious to watch you Libertards trying to talk yourselves into a justification for elevating Scott Brown above Elizabeth Warren, even while the U.S. Supreme Court — in a straight-up liberal-versus-conservative 5-4 split — upholds arrests and strip-searches for people who drive without a seatbelt. If that decision didn’t show you what is at stake in the battle between the two major parties, then nothing will.

    When you vote Republican, you vote for more Scalias, Thomases, and Alitos on the federal judiciary, and when you do that, you vote to give the state more impunity in raiding homes, killing dogs, crushing skulls, and flash-banging nursery rooms.

    You Libertards will march right into the re-education camp if they dangle a capital-gains tax cut in front of your face.

    1. Max or DanT?

      You decide!

      1. Naah:
        “flash-banging nursery rooms.”
        Random troll.

          1. Oh! Oh! Look! If you don’t vote for the socialist hag, all the children will get killed!
            How original!
            How………………………
            stupid

            1. What a shame that asshole had to be the one posting the story. It needs to be told as another example of trigger-happy power freak cops killing innocent people in an unnecessary show of force.

            2. Just a few kids die that way, here and there, mainly in poor and minority neighborhoods… well worth beating that 2.5% penalty under ObamaCare, eh?

              Let Freedom Ring … throughout the suburbs!

                1. 2.5% penalty is part of legislation. Do your own googling, sloopy.

                  1. You made the claim that these lives are worth the 2.5% penalty, and I’d like you to back it up.
                    You know the rules, asshole. If you’re gonna make a claim, you need to back it up.
                    Aw, fuck it. Why am I bothering with a bomb-throwing asshole like you anyway? Your arguments are all bullshit strawmen designed to shit all over the thread. I should be ashamed I fell into your trap, especially with “reasonable” turned on.

                    1. I attribute the priority of defeating ObamaCare to you. My priority is effective judicial review of police street violence.

                      And you’d be right. So what?

                      “My priority is effective judicial review of police street violence.”
                      Goody. Let us know what that has to do with obamacare.

                  2. And yeah, you clown, Detroit is really a Team Red stronghold. So there goes your shitheaded argument right out of the gate.
                    Care to try again?*

                    *Rhetorical question. We’d rather (pun intended) you just leave.

                    1. My original, and remaining, point is about judicial nominees, not local politicians.

                    2. Judicial nominees do not hire and/or negotiate the absurd protections police unions get for their employees that operate with very little accountability. Judicial nominees do not set departmental policies. Judicial nominees do not establish laws that criminalize victimless behavior.

                      I could go on, but you’re too stupid and disingenuous to admit you are a fucking retard.

                    3. Judicial nominees, once they become judges, decide whether to enforce the 4th Amendment against blanket strip-search policies and enforce Section 1983 against police brutality. And the partisan divide on those matters could not be more stark: GOP judges have gutted every legal hedge against the police state.

                    4. Judicial nominees, once they become judges, decide whether to enforce the 4th Amendment against blanket strip-search policies and enforce Section 1983 against police brutality.

                      Who’s the judge that approved that warrant and who appointed him / her.

                      Since it’s MI, I’m betting the asshole is a donkey appointed by a donkey.

                Only a braindead would attempt that sort of false dichotomy.

                1. The partisan divide in a two-party system: how does that work? “Priorities.” What does this strange and mysterious word mean?

                  1. Hey, RAL… Team Blue. What’s it doing for human rights, at this minute? Did they shitcan the “patriot” Act? Did they prevent Janet Napolitano and General Dynamics from snooping on American citizens who aren’t even close to being terrorists? Have they stopped fucking with states who want autonomy for medical-marijuana decisions?

                    Et cetera?

                    Fuck your Team AND Team Red.

      2. Nah, he didn’t call Paul a racist. That rules max out.

        My vote is for our erstwhile primitivist/nutjob.

        1. [no, not white indian]

        2. We’ll know it’s our primitivist nutjob for sure when he/she links to my blog and comments inanities like he/she did over and over and over the last couple of days.

          1. It’s not worth your time to guess which troll is which. They all have the same air of flippant self satisfaction to mask the pathetic lives of people so miserable for attention they’ll troll sites where no one wants them around. I kind of feel sorry for all of them, really.

  13. He hates christ-fags and Bush-pigs too!
    When a socon story appears, he shows up on cue.
    Don’t you dare question his libertarian creds.
    Especially when he is off his fucking meds.
    That’s our Shriek!

    [second verse, same as the first!]

    1. I give even odds it’s rather.

  14. Detroit cops kill innocent 7-year old in no-knock raid because they were “excited” to be on A&E show. Police department will not confirm or deny neighbors’ reports that they were told about children and threw flashbang in anyway, creating confusion.

    1. “We’re not indicating the officer’s actions were intentional,” Mitchell told The Detroit News. “We know it was an accident, but the method that they used in executing the search warrant was flawed. The family understands that the officer is not a monster. He didn’t intentionally shoot a 7-year-old girl.”

      He’s a monster until he pleads guilty to manslaughter.

      1. He pleaded not guilty. The trial starts this month. He was charged with involuntary manslaughter.

        By the way, the judge hearing the case is married to a cop and the prosecutor said he is fine with that. (The prosecutor did not file charges, by the way. The indictment was issued by a grand jury.)

        None of the officers involved in the cover-up have been charged.

        1. Ken, what would you like to wager that the cop is either acquitted or found guilty but given a suspended sentence?

          1. Oh, he’s not gonna spend a single day in jail. Hell, the DA didn’t even want to bring the case, and he’s OK with a judge hearing the case being married to a cop.

            I forsee a prosecution ala Brad Pitt in Sleepers, an underrated movie in my opinion.

            1. Where is dunphy to defend this travesty?

              I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Weekley deserves to be flashbanged daily for this shotgun blast full of incompetence. Nothing less than a conviction of manslaughter and 10 to 25 in general population is good enough for this sorry piece of shit.

              I would have no problems giving Weekley a napalm enema.

              1. He’s only facing a few years if found guilty, doc. And with a judge married to a cop and a prosecutor that didn’t want charges brought, there’s no way in hell he serves a day in the unlikeliest scenario of a guilty verdict.

                1. And me without my dunphy signal.

                  Seriously dunphy, can you, moreover, should you defend this? And preferably without walls of text?

                  I am asking this in earnest sincerity, because, honestly, I don’t think you can.

                  1. RAL should be okay with the kid getting killed. It’s happening under his Team’s leadership, after all.

                  2. Fuck dunphy. He’s a one-trick pony with that cop who threw a woman out the window as his only shred of evidence that a cop might, might, actually get treated more harshly than a “civilian.”

                    I’ve offered up 50 cases to the contrary, yet he keeps going back to that single, solitary example.

                    And in case he does show up, maybe he can explain to me why this cop not only avoided jail time, but will be allowed to accumulate leave so he can retire in the fall.

                    1. Same reason Patrick Kennedy was never imprisoned for his DUI crimes… or Teddy, for that matter.

    2. “We know it was an accident, but the method that they used in executing the search warrant was flawed…

      Aren’t ALL no-knock warrants fundamentally flawed?

      If people come charging into my home in the middle of the night, they are going to get shot. So what if they identify themselves as police? God knows criminals would never do that, right?

      Put a guy outside my house and have him arrest me on the way to my car. You don’t get shot and I don’t get shot. Seems like a much more thought out solution to me.

      Of course, they didn’t become cops based upon their mental prowess.

      1. Of course, they didn’t become cops based upon their mental prowess.

        I’d be happy if all the cops were as retarded as they are, if only they weren’t armed to the teeth.

        1. We’d honestly be better off arming the K-9 force instead of the actual police at this point.

      2. We know it was an accident,

        No it wasn’t. He intentionally threw a flash-bang into a house. Nothing accidental about it.

  15. So with no alternative options available at the ballot box what’s a libertarian to do in this race?

    There is no point in voting for either party. Avoid them at all cost unless you can buy access and threaten their careers.

    Voting only reminds them how insignificant you are.

    1. That’s why they give you a condescending little sticker that says, ‘I Voted!’. No different than a teacher’s gold star given to the tamest kid in the class.

        1. Lol!

      1. Yes. I agree with the above sentiments that at this time Team Red is slightly better, esp. with court pics. However, give them a mere two years, and they’ll be as bad you remembered back in 2006.

        However, that is still not really the point. Democracy is an ineffectual means of representing your own interest. At best, you are merely trying to stay the beastly tide from overwhelming you and yours.

    2. Vote REPUBLICAN. Democrats tax the winners to give to the losers. If you want to restore American vote R.

      1. Yes, let’s vote for the Republicans who believe in taxing winners and giving money to losers…

        Stalin had a name for people like you… what was it again? Oh yes! Useful idiot!

        1. Democrats passed the new deal and the civil rights act, that’s reason alone to side with anybody but them. Ron Paul gets that. Rand Paul gets that, the people that fund this movement get that. None of the other shit matters but ending the income tax, killing the social safety net, and repealing the civil rights act. Only then will we be free.

          1. Actually, you fucking idiot, the New Deal was a continuation of Herbert Hoover’s policies – like a good little Republican, he thought fucking over consumers in favor of big business was a great idea.

            Additionally, you ignorant mouth-breather, the Republicans supported the Civil Rights act in overwhelming numbers whereas the Democrats gave it more tepid support.

            If I were Barack Obama, I would be on my knees thanking God everyday that people like you are there to tame the opposition by people who like freedom into the harmless channel of voting for Republicans.

            1. We lost our freedom. The fact that my taxes go to other peoples healthcare and to teach other peoples kids is tyranny. The fact that I have to pay people more than people are paid in China is tyranny.

              This has gone on far to long. We need to get back in control and get revenge. They need to HURT for the money they have taken from us. This is a farce. We must be swift and brutal. Only RON PAUL supports policies that will get us to that point.

              1. You were doing so well until your last couple of posts. I’m gonna score you a 7.5/10.

                Protip: when trolling, don’t overplay your hand and go full retard until you exhaust all plausible arguments.

              2. What is this “We” shit, Kemosabe?

  16. Who will kill social security and medicare, who will kill regulations, that’s all that matters. And on that note fuck all the Dems, damn bleeding heart liberals raise taxes and regulate business.

    Always vote R, always. No more EPA, no more public schools, and get rid of social security.

    1. Damn, are you naive. But in your defense, I have always heard Cherry Kool-Aid tastes better than Blue Raspberry.

      1. I’m sick of what this country has become. Only libertarians will get rid of the civil rights act, only libertarians will get rid of the social safety net that let’s the losers and the failures take our money. Our only hope is to elect people like this to restore true liberty to those who make our country great. We are done playing nice, and god forbid we could find another solution. We are letting the stealers and the cheats vote themselves more of our money.

        How are you not blind with rage.

        1. I am blind with rage. But why in the hell would I vote for Team Red, when they would continue the drug war, would likely expand our global warmaking ability, will continue to grow government at a pretty rapid rate and will continue to meddle with the economy?

          Of course, I’m basing my views on decades of evidence. What are you basing yours on? (I’m not being a dick here, I’m genuinely curious why you would think Team Red will change their ways)

          1. I thinks OC believes a “libertarian” to be somebody like Glenn Beck.

            1. More like Ron Paul on racial and economic issues, and the Kochs on economics and regulations.

              We’ve lost for too long. No more civil rights act, no more new deal, no more public schools, no more regulations, no more consumer safety, and bring back child labor.

              I could give a fuck about the drugs, gambling, and milk issues, those are not the same level of moral abomination as my having to pay for some kids schooling.

              1. They aren’t? Why is their liberty to do what they want less important than your liberty to keep your money?

                You’re just another utilitarian scumbag. Fuck off, slaver.

                1. Taxation is more wrong then slavery and capitalism requires cheap labor and is the most noble part of our society. Ron Paul would let people sell themselves into slavery and understands our issues, you should get with the program. Chrushing labor is one of the reasons we get money from the elites, it’s our most dedicated purpose.

                  Fuck em.

                2. Sloop, you are being trolled by a facetious Maddowite.

                  1. I realized that about 5 minutes too late to not look foolish.

                    I blame my wife.

                    1. It’s alright, sloop. For a second there I thought it was the perfect opportunity to point out that Ryan wants to spend 40 trillion over the next ten years while Obama thinks anything lower that 41 trillion would be SoMAlIa ROADZ!

                      If that is the best the Republicans can offer, they are only siphoning off the strength of the productive classes by being milquetoast representatives of their interest. That is the GOP in the best possible light with a whole heap of photoshopping applied. Fucking sad.

                      Anyhow, it turned out to be a Maddowite, and not a GopSmacked voter, so no go on that plan.

                  2. I don’t support homosexual businesses or owners. They are tearing this countries moral fabric apart. Homosexual marriage is the second biggest liberal assault on white families.

                    1. miscengination. Ron Pauls views on race are right, as are those of his news letter. The assault on traditional white America by other races and atheists has gone on long enough. The Republicans talk a good walk but won’t destroy the laws that prevent us from taking this country back. Ron Paul will! He is the only hope to restore what we once were.

                      Destroy labor, destroy the civil rights act, and take back what is ours.

                    2. Ron Pauls views on race are right

                      Full stop.

                      Just ask black people.

                    3. Why ask a black person when you can get the correct view of what is in the interest of black people from an affluent white liberal who is offering to give it to you right here?

                      Just seems like an unnecessary step to me.

                      Yep. Gays marry and, poof! Something happens.
                      Not sure what that something is; maybe you could tell us.
                      This should be amusing.

                    8. More expensive labor. Discrimination allows us to pay people less. This is good for business and good for my tax dollars. Which is what counts.

                      I could give fuck all about who fucks who. I do care about who gets federal benefits and tax cuts, and who I have to pay more. There is no greater moral outrage I have to deal with each month than the minimum wage. If we keep the gays down and put the blacks back into the 1950s I could pay people less.

                      Governments demanding equality is socialism of the highest order and an attack on the tax payer.

                      “More expensive labor. Discrimination allows us to pay people less….”
                      You oppose gay marriage since it will RAISE THE COST OF LABOR?!

                      And you claim “Discrimination allows us to pay people less…”?
                      OK, now this stuff is *good*! Hey, sloopy, got more of that popcorn?

                    14. yeah and being 100% serious here, I want people to make less here than people do in China. I want a compliant labor force. We had that with slaves, we had it more when we could discriminate against people. We had that even more before labor rights. I want all of that gone. I want a compliant labor force. And no matter the means to get there, I want it. Child labor, fine with it, bring it. Killing people by over working them, let’s do it.

                      Less taxes, and less for the workers.

                      Libertarians are the only group that supports repealing the laws to get there. I’m also for removing the legal requirement for hospitals to treat people and then killing medicare. True people will die, and I am OK with that, I WANT that, because it will help fix the budget and not raise taxes.

                      People killed by toxic waste, I’m fine with it. Did the company make more profit because of less regulations, bring it on, and fuck those who went down.

                      I’m 100% for the most brutal free market capitalism around. We used to have that, it’s what made us great. If you’re strong you live and if you’re weak you die.

                      It’s free market darwanism. The stronger will live and make a better human race, the weak will die off and work to help the rest of us. And that’s where complete personal freedom will let those of us who win take humanity.

                      Any sort of compasion, equality, or humanity can stay on the left. It’s not productive. I want competition, and freedom.

                    15. OK, pretty sure this is shithead attempting satire.
                      All the right strawmen.

                    16. Excellent young Skytroller, but you must restrain yourself a bit. You’re giving it out too easily.

                    17. “It’s free market darwanism.”

                      Maybe it’s not Max, but Tony?

              2. “I could give a fuck about the drugs, gambling, and milk issues, those are not the same level of moral abomination as my having to pay for some kids schooling.”

                Then you have nothing in common with libertarians. You should slink off quietly and masturbate to your fantasies of a Santorum presidency.

    2. Republican politicians love the EPA (they never reduce its funding unless they absolutely have to), they love Public schools (in fact Republicans were big supporters of government schooling as a way of forcing kids of Catholic parents to get Protestant indoctrination), and the last time the REpublicans tried to get rid of social security, they tried to do it by nationalizing the stock market.

      Anybody who believes in freedom who casts a vote for the vast majority of Republican candidates is being a damn fool.

      The Republicans have had many chances. They fucked the American citizenry over every chance they got. It’s time for the Republicans to join their daddy the Whigs on the ash heap of history.

      1. By some of the comments you’d think that the EPA was the creation of the Democrats.

        A Republican politician (Nixon) created the EPA by executive order. Two decades later, a Republican politician (GHW Bush) considered the Clean Air Act Amendments one of the major achievements of his presidency.

  17. Although she claims to be a champion of the middle class, Elizabeth Warren is either clueless as to the real cause of the middle-class collapse or complicit in encouraging policies that perpetuate it.

    Elizabeth Warren, Clueless or Complicit?

    http://tirelessagorist.blogspo…..licit.html

    1. Elizabeth Warren is the end product of decades of trained stupidity, purposeful ignorance, and complete aversion to all enjoyment in life.

      She is Barbara Boxer without the brains or looks.

    have you seen the Ryan budget! It’s amazing, we get to stick to the losers and the cheats and the failures. Fuck them, and get their hands out of my pocket. We also help the winners and the more noble among us. Good for Ryan.

    Republicans also help destroy public schooling which is tyranny. No more public school, no more child labor laws. Republicans are pro drilling, fuck the hippies. If they care that much about “carbon issues” they can pay for it their fucking selves, not me.

    Republicans are not perfect, but they don’t stick their hands in my wallet and reward failing at life like the Democrats do.

    1. I agree with you 100%. The problem with Republican voters is that such a large percentage of them are complete fucking idiots. Can you believe that there are actual people who think that Rick Santorum or Newt Gingrich would make a better president than Ron Paul? It’s like these dipshits want Obama to get elected to a second term.

      1. Perry and Santorum believe in equal rights for all races, Ron Paul does not. Perry and Santorum are against forcing children to work, Ron Paul is not.

        That’s why, and that’s why libertarians are better.

        1. “Perry and Santorum are against forcing allowing children to work, Ron Paul is not.

          FIFY, you dumbass.

        2. Ron Paul does not believe in equal rights for all races? Sorry, I’m going to have to call bullshit on this one unless you can provide some sort of proof for this.

          1. he’s against the civil rights acts and his newsletters preach the truth. Leave that hippy shit about drugs for the young and naive and let’s take our country back!

            1. Can I ask you a serious question, OC in DC? Are you schizophrenic?

              1. Sloop, I think OC is a team Blue troll who is posting hyper-partisan team Red shit to make team Red look stupid.

            2. OK, he is trolling us.

              1. You’re literally sitting right next to me and you couldn’t have said this before now? Thanks for watching me get sucked into arguing with a socktroll, honey. Thanks a lot.

                1. The best lessons are learned the hard way. Now where’s my lunch?

                  1. I picture y’all Reason bloggin’ like this*.

                    “I’m getting HACKED!”

                    *disregard the title

                  2. The best lessons are learned the hard way. Now where’s my lunch?

                    LULZ!

                    Sloopy == PWN’d

                2. You’re literally sitting right next to me and you couldn’t have said this before now?

                  HAHAHAHAHA

          2. Sorry, I’m going to have to call bullshit on this one unless you can provide some sort of proof for this.

            [pops popcorn–pulls up chair]

        3. Both these statements are dead wrong.

    2. You know that there’s this candidate called Gary Johnson, right? He was Team Red, granted, but is now running for the Libertarian Party on a platform that isn’t exactly simpatico with the SoCon fundamentals of the current Republican party.

    3. Republicans are not perfect, but they don’t stick their hands in my wallet and reward failing at life like the Democrats do.

      Are you serious? Are you serious?

      1. I can’t tell if he is serious or not.

        1. On second read, I’m pretty sure OC from DC is playing you like a kazoo.

          1. No, I’m not. I came to the libertarian party for three major things.

            1. End the new deal. Fuck the losers. I’m fine with liberals telling us “but they will die in the streets” they should die. Fuck them and fuck the losers. No more tax money for you fucking assholes.

            2. No more equality for labor, ever again. Unions are evil and facist, we should shoot the members on sight. Kill public schooling, bring back child labor, and repeal the minimum wage. We need a permanent economic underclass to compete with China.

            3. No more civil rights act, Ron Paul’s news letters are true, those are the values of this movements leaders.

            Let’s get rolling.

            1. You outed yourself as a troll too soon. That’s the problem with trolls these days: they blow their wad far too soon, and afterwards expect us to play along as if we hadn’t seen the mask slip.

              1. I think it’s Rather.

              1. Wife just asked whose is that sexy voice. She knows me too well.

              2. Fuck Oliver. If he’s collecting tuition money for his children that are shorter than knee-high, he’s getting their preschool paid for. And preschool is useless.

                1. And preschool is useless.

                  I wouldn’t say preschool is useless, but let’s call it what it is: daycare.

                  1. Hence useless as an educational tool. I never went to preschool for a day and I’m a fucking genius. My wife went for 2 years and she can’t even make herself lunch as witnessed above.

                  2. My parents spent about 30k a year on preschool for me. When I got out I was ahead of the kids in the 2nd grade in math.

                    It is worth it, but you get what you pay for out of it. Most parents send their kids to a cheapo school that doesn’t teach shit, but the same can be said for all things cheap, not worth it.

                    1. Too bad you didn’t get to Kindergarten. You may have blossomed into an intelligent being.

                    2. sticks and stones, sticks and stones

            2. @OC in DC: The next time you are trolling add this quip to your act…

              “I want a President who is willing to use ALL we have like I use ALL I have for my business. I want someone like Michelle Bachmann who will tell the Arabs we will blow them the fuck off the Earth unless they sell us the O-I-L for the price we insist on. They will respect that. We have the power and I want a President who is always thinking of ways to use it. I drive an SUV and I want cheap gas to power it and who doesn’t and when Presidents were white wasn’t gas cheaper? At first I didn’t like her because she was a gal and Sarah is cuter but now I know she can think like a man so I’m OK she’s a gal. If Ron Paul makes her VP she could help with the women vote it’s something to think about.”

              Troll RedState w/ this line and you’ll get at least one person to agree w/ you (before you’re banned).

              Troll FreeRepublic w/ this line and you’ll get at least 25 people to agree w/ you. They may even make you a mod.

      …”the more noble among us.”…

      “us”? Is that a turd in your pocket?

  19. I’m eating some Hungarian noodles that I made with habaneros and it is fucking hot. Usually the habs I buy at the grocery store are sorta weak, but these are pretty potent. I’m actually sweating right now.

    1. If you are eating chunks of habanero pepers, you’re insane.

      I believe that you’re sweating. However, I have a low threshold for that myself. I sweat simply eating buffalo sauce.

      1. If you are eating chunks of habanero pepers, you’re insane.

        My wife takes a bag of bird chilies, dips them in shrimp paste and eats them like one would a bag of potato chips and dip.

        1. Habanero’s are not that hot. It depends on what you are used to eating. I replace the jalapenos in poppers with habs and just eat them straight up. Very nice. Scotch bonnets work almost as well.

          1. The habs from the store are usually pretty tame, but the homegrown red savinas that I get in the summer are bad ass.

            Last year my pa grew a bunch of bhut jolokias and those motherfuckers are demonic. I made a jar of flakes out of those and just opening the jar will have the uninitiated wheezing.

            1. do you sell the savinas? I’d be game. I know about the death peppers, I tried one, once, never went back.

              Funny old story but I used dried habs or stronger for a crust on this salmon dish I make. Well, the peppers weren’t dry enough so into the microwave they went! Now I live in NW DC in an area where 5k a month only gets you a one bedroom (but girls drop their pants when they see it so it’s all good) so there isn’t much space. After about 5 mins, I basically pepper gassed my entire apartment. People were dropping to the floor and freaking the fuck out.

              1. You left out the “shit was so cash” part.

                C’mon, man. You’re slipping.

                1. Hey Hit ‘n Run,
                  My name is Heroic Mulatto, and I hate every single one of you. All of you are fat, retarded, no-lifes who spend every second of their day looking at stupid ass blog posts. You are everything bad in the world. Honestly, have any of you ever gotten any liberty? I mean, I guess it’s fun making fun of people because of your own insecurities, but you all take to a whole new level. This is even worse than jerking off to Lucy Steigerwald’s pictures on reason.tv.
                  Don’t be a stranger. Just hit me with your best shot. I’m pretty much perfect. I was captain of the debate team, and starter on my chess team. What intellectual activities do you engage in, other than “jack off to Pia Varma”? I also got straight A’s, and eat banging hot bhut jolokia peppers (They just blew my taste buds away; Shit was SO cash). You are all fake libertarians who should just kill yourselves. Thanks for listening.

                  Pic Related: It’s me and my bhut jolokia.

                  1. Are those bird chiles that your wife eats those little berry looking peppers?

                    I’d like to try them, I’ve heard that despite their innocent appearance they are actually very hot.

                    1. It’s these ones. In Thai they are called prik kii noo, “Mouse Shit Peppers”.

                    2. Oh yeah, those little ones that stick straight up in the air so that the birds can eat them. Heard they’re pretty hot.

                      Fun Fact: Birds are unable to taste the heat in hot peppers…

          2. Some are, some aren’t. Hell, every once in a while I get a hot jalape?o.

            I like to cut fresh habaneros in half lengthwise, salt the inside a little, and eat them… sometimes with a bit of bleu cheese.

      2. I’m addicted to hot food so I like it. When you get food really hot you start buzzing off of endorphins from eating it. Shit’s like crack.

        It sneaks up on you, too. One day you’re eating wings with friends at the bar and someone orders the super hot ones. You eat them to be cool and swear you’ll never put yourself through that sort of pain again. Then the next time you’re out you inexplicably order those super hot ones for yourself.

        Three years later your asking the waitress if the cook can make some wings that are actually hot, because theirs just taste like vinegar and ass.

        1. Vinegar and ass flavor.

          It’s days like this, people, when I lament registration.

          1. ah common, it was good for me, it should be good for you to.

            AS for hot food, I’ve never had wings that I actually found “hot”. Then again I spent a lot of time in Thailand in the Navy and I spend a lot of time in Africa for my current job, so my idea of “hot” is probably a bit off.

          2. Boy, you’re lazy sloop.

            1. It’s disgraceful how lazy you are, sloop. Coupled with your getting trolled, I don’t think there’s much hope for you. 🙂

              1. Jesus Christ. The abuse is pretty bad today. But today I:
                Made a huge breakfast (like I do every day)
                Made lunch
                Made a baby (perhaps)

                So, I’m not that lazy.

                1. Did you make money, none of what you did is work. Making money = not lazy, didn’t make a buck = lazy. To put it bluntly, some fucking kid at a McDonalds was probably less lazy than you were today.

                  1. To put it bluntly, some fucking kid at a McDonalds was probably less lazy than you were today.

                    Truer words were never spoken. But what’s your point?

                    1. I think his point is that life should be like school, with the government is the teacher, the money government gives people are like grades, and the good little boys and girls get rewarded and the bad little boys and girls get punished.

                    2. IOW, he’s a fucking mongoloid, right?

        2. How old are you?

          I was like that in my 20s and 30s. Now, at 47, I have the second hottest wings in the bar and spend 40 minutes the next morning on the shitter, my asshole 8 inches in diameter trying to get out of the way.

          Love it going in. Hours of agony, the next day, getting it out. Not worth it anymore.

          1. I’ve cracked 30 recently, and don’t have bad morning after burning shits. My dad’s 63 and he eats way more of this stuff than I do and he doesn’t seem to have any problems.

            I think that wings with the acidic sauce in addition to alcohol causes the distressful next day movements. I’ll make some chicken and rice with really hot peppers and have no problems, but medium wings on top of a binge will wreck me.

        3. I generally like my wings as spicy as possible, but there gets to a point where they’re so tastebud searing, the wings lose flavor and the subsequent bunghole burn and the holes it ate into your stomach is not worth the momentary endorphin rush.

    2. You may be sweating right now, but tomorrow your asshole will be burning.

  20. I, for one, would like to celebrate the first weekend in some time where threads didn’t get trashed with hundreds of posts extolling the wonder of eating lichen. Or the rocks if someone gamboled over and got the lichen first.

  21. extolling the wonder of eating lichen.

    Instant classic. I’ll have to keep that one in my back pocket for the next militant vegan I encounter.

    1. Thank ya, thank ya very much!
      *takes bow*
      But how about them rocks? They ain’t stinking animals, and they keep your teeth clean!

  22. Have you seen the requirement of this People’s Pledge they made? Let’s form an independent PAC to run attack ads against both of them, and bankrupt them! I bet they never thought of that one.

  23. Brown and Warren Leave Libertarians in Tough Spot

    Not really.

    1. As a resident of Ma, I’m not stressing. I’ll be writing in ‘None of the Above’ while voting against whatever tax increases are on the ballot.

      Honestly, it doesn’t matter – we’re just as fucked – the only difference is how many months it will take for the Fed Gov to ramp the economy destroying thrashing around to 11 in the face of its thermonuclear debt crisis.

      1. As a resident of Ma

        She must be HUGE!

      2. As a resident of Ma,

        (Or other jackass remark)

        You’re the first fetus I’ve ever known that could type.

  24. “On the other side you have a Democrat that just loves talking about how awesome the social contract is and oversaw the Wall Street bailout.”

    It’s not a tough call to me although I don’t vote in MA…but I’ll probably end up donating.

    Warren is the second most dangerous liberal in the Country to me (excluding Supreme Court Justices).

    This is not because she’s incompetent…she’s all too competent. I really think she’s the Democratic P. Ryan…not only a true believer but able to articulate the philosophy in a way that resonates.

    If she gets in the sky’s the limit. I’m not kidding. Should Obama beat Romney (he will) she’s got a real shot at the 2016 nomination.

    Now I’ll seem to contradict myself because Obama is obviously the most dangerous liberal and I’m protest-voting for G. Johnson.

    The explanation is partly logical but mostly emotional. I simply hate Romney. I actually kinda like Brown.

    People can say that’s stupid…but no that is is Romney.

    1. I simply hate Romney.

      Word.

  25. This is actually pretty easy: vote for Brown, because this isn’t a standard douche vs turd sandwich election. As a poster above said, Brown’s a douche and Warren is a firehose of flaming shit shoved right up America’s ass.

    Brown has basically been a mildly statist standard issue dud in the senate. Once Warren gets in you it is guaranteed that that bitch will NEVER SHUT THE FUCK UP. She will be Obama’s ‘bad cop’ and the president the ‘good’ cop. America will be badly double-teamed and her power will only grow. This election is a ‘headshot’ moment for the struggle for freedom.

  26. Christ, these weekend threads are BO-RING!

    Isn’t there some happy medium that can be reached?

    1. Boy, some people are really hard to please.
      Care to give us a whacko/serious ratio that would make you smile? Or are you willing to give it another try next week?
      If not, door…butt…leave…etc.

  27. I agree with .This is actually pretty easy: vote for Brown, because this isn’t a standard douche vs turd sandwich election. As a poster above said, Brown’s a douche and Warren is a firehose of flaming shit shoved right up America’s ass. http://www.textkind.com/

  28. It sneaks up on you, too. One day you’re eating wings with friends at the bar and someone orders the super hot ones. You eat them to be cool and swear you’ll never put yourself through that sort of pain again. Then the next time you’re out you inexplicably order those super hot ones for yourself.http://www.foodbub.com/

  29. Vote Vermin Supreme.
