Happy Halloween! What's the stupidest and scariest thing you've heard a liberal say?
I'm from the government and I'm here to help. Lololol
I was heckling Nancy Pelosi at a rally once with a chant of "drill here, drill now" and she said she'd like to drill our heads.
“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”
"We should get rid of Texas. They're a bunch of stupid hicks"
"We should nuke the south"
I gotta say Scotty, this is one of my new favorite polls. Watching rotavele scrambling around, trying to debunk every single quote was quite enjoyable.
It's really quite remarkable how little of a life he has and how little sleep he requires that he can dedicate 24 hours a day to trolling these polls. His family should stage an intervention or something.
I agree. It does seem that he has absolutely not life. He isn't even making good points, either.
(someone was discussing the Holocaust on Facebook) "They should round up all the Republicans and put them in concentration camps" . I was speechless. I've come to the conclusion that Republicans are angry and Democrats are just hateful. SMH
Hey look! All the retard neocons in one thread! Hi neocons! Hi! Hi!
Don't get too close.
Well if the treasury would just print more money we wouldn't have any poor people OR national debt.
You'll be able yo keep your current insurance!
"But we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it..." Nancy Pelosi
The world's biggest stool sample… what a load of shit.
""If you have nothing to hide, you have nothing to fear"- words to live by." -Moms Demand Action
'I always say what I mean.' Joe Biden
Mary Landrieu must've seen your poll this morning. I think she just won on purpose:
Any of the moms demand "arguments"
The most important problem in the world is global warming.
De Leon's "ghost guns" ban speech thing. With the 30 caliber magazine clip.
"Corporations don't provide jobs" by the darling of liberalism Hilary Clinton.
Beat me to it!
Unusual because I'm pretty slow but, glad you agree.
'You didn't build that'
"If you've got a business - you didn't build that. Someone else made that happen." -Barack Obama
Corino, that's my answer for the scariest too. I used another one that can fit as most stupid so as not to steel your thunder though. :)
I am considering running for president in 2016 -- Hillary Clinton.
Toss up between businesses don't create jobs and we have to approve it before we know what's in it.
We shouldn't pee test those on assistance
Obama is a great president! Hahahahahahahahaha
That businesses don't create jobs.
Weren't you in our economic forum when discussing this? It was pretty much accepted what the point was and its a very simple question that is a question of opinion.
Too many to count!
"What's Obamas last name?"
"Rosetta Stone did not sit on that bus for you gays to talk about equal rights."
Did no one like the ones I made up?
Also shout out to the republican guy below who used a GOP quote. Made my day.
lol I died laughing at your second quote. :'D
Donna Brazille on Presidents Day sent out this message -
"With congress off this is action day. Let's move America forward. "
"Today we have two Vietnams side buy side.
''Carbon dioxide is portrayed as harmful. But there isn't even one study that can be produced that shows that carbon dioxide is a harmful gas.''
That's a lie and an old fake tweet from years ago that went viral. They were trolling you or you're making it up.
But if you want to hear funny tweets I'll make a comment on here!
Far as I know it's a real quote
Bad news bro, it's a GOP candidate quote.
Google the quote, here's a YouTube link of good ole' Bachman saying it. Whoever told you that was trying to mess with you.
She was attacking global warming.
This user is currently being ignored
"We haven’t had a very collective notion of 'these are our children,' so, part of it is that we have to break through our kind of private idea that kids belong to their parents, or kids belong to their families."
Let me guess without watching the video. Melissa Harris-Perry?
Ooh, that's a good one!
"You didn't build that!"
-- B. Hussein O. --
I loved that one. Hillary re affirmed him. There's a big difference it seems with vocal republicans (many other members on here are very educated on it) the common problem is you guys don't ask "why?" As in why did he say that? Instead you assume
He truly meant that no one has made a business or that businesses never create jobs.
He said that because he's a theoretician who's spent his entire life in government and naturally thinks all prosperity comes from that. We have a literal communist in The White House.
Yeah, that's what Partistan media says, turn Fox/NBC off.
You're not under a tyrannical government and you're not a oppressed superhero who is the only one who knows of atrocitie when everyone else is too dumb to see. That's an old propaganda tool.
It's been tried and true, and it's not out to help you. Conservatism is for a lot of people, it can work. I just don't think you've even give other politics a chance to learn what they truly are and not just what you've heard.
Conservatism is as big a failure as liberalism. Freedom and liberty. i.e. libertarianism is the only way.
Libertarianism is non existent in many countries.
Also communism is doing great for China and Socialism is doing great in Europe.
Conservatives and Liberals are allied in Britain to try and defeat the Reds (Labour Party)
"Communism is doing great for China."
No, free markets and capitalism are starting to take hold and shocker, they're finally being lifted out of poverty and misery.
"Socialism is doing great in Europe."
Yeah, Greece should serve as a model for the world!
Actually every Nordic nation passed us in academics. Finland is #1 for science. Iceland is a fucking island permafrosted over and competing with our GDP/Capita.
Norway passed us in HDI and GDP per Capita.
The Europeans have forums where they literally make jokes about how right winged America is.
Also Greece was not a socialist nation to my knowledge.
But since you're being a pussy and afraid to take the test, I don't blame you.
We're literally competing with an island that's half way frozen. A socialist ice island. Why is that, Scotty?
I always love when liberals hold up these city-states called "countries" and compare them to the US. How many people live in Iceland Rota? 300,000. My little Podunk town of Greenville, South Carolina literally has more people!
But no, it's far to compare a heterogeneous country of 320 MILLION to a homogeneous "country" of 300,000. Yeah, that's completely logical.
Well good point! 300,000 people living on a block of ice in the ocean are rivaling a nation of 310 million.
Thanks for that one Scotty!
You never took a stats class, did you? This is some pretty basic stuff you're not grasping here.
.... Right. Anyways you're one to talk about taking classes Mr. "EDUCATION, COLLEGES, AND INTELLIGENCE R LIBRUL PROPAGANDA!"
Seriously that was the funniest one all night. Thanks for the compliment.
Rota, chill with the Iceland thing. Icelands GDP has taken a 25% dip since 2007. That's an astonishing percentage. And Americas GDP is larger than Icelands by over a factor of 1000. Apple did over 6x more business this year than Iceland.
"A fetus is a parasite"
That is the libertarian philosophy on abortion, not liberals.
Haven't we established that you can't put people in a tight box, the girl who said it voted democrat, and even if she was a libertarian she was on the liberal side of the spectrum anyway
Ah, I admit you're right. Some Lib-Socialists are rising these days.
However that's not a liberal stance honestly. I'm a green. You'd hate my stance on it.
I already do
Also I really doubt they specifically called it a parasite
Beaaa.. That's the exact word.
The libertarian argument that women had control of their bodies and didn't have to host a parasite is an old Soviet Union theory.
Too many options for an all time champ. I'll just go with something from today. Keep in mind I woke up less than 30 mins ago. I saw a Huff Post article whining about too many white male super heroes. Do they not know about the origins of movies?
Yes and despite what Fox News told you, Super Jesus didn't create Hollywood. Look it up.
"Super Jesus didn't create Hollywood."
Okay dude, your trolling is just getting lame now. Please move along.
If you seriously have an issue, please explain. Also either way, go get a job and quit living off my tax dollars
Uhh actually you live off my tax dollars bud. I'm gay and can't get married, you guys get an extra tax break. I pay more in than you do.
Also my job is pretty awesome. I can guarantee you didn't even attend a college.
So you don't seriously have an issue and thus a troll. Glad that's out of the way. Also I'm 20, in college, and I have a job.
If you're in college, you get scholarships. You're living off my tax dollars and you likely don't have a job. Hypocrite.
I live off of Georgia lottery players tax dollars. And I most certainly have a job. I am a service tech and salesman for a pest control company. It's actually a very enjoyable job
So you're living off tax dollars, every republican here in Georgia is paying tax dollars to keep you up.
Dominic! Food for thought and an example for republicans here to not take extremist crazy statements for face value. You've taken a macroeconomics course right?
Well no not exactly. "Living off" is not a good term. I am helped by people who want to play the lottery, while also paying my share of taxes from my job and I've been a tax payer for 4 years
Ok ok ok answer my question though I want to show you some liberal thoughts that sound extreme but have worked greatly.
Only someone who's taken an Econ course can really understand it though.
Not in college yet, no but I understand economics. Not sure if liberal thinking and economics are compatible but you're welcome to try
Yeah.... I don't think so, I've taken a few courses one of my macro Econ was a Yale course.
Anyways here's how to find out: Tell me the 3 ways to get out of a recession. (Feel free to google and answer this test)
I promise you'll be mind blown. In the past week I showed this to several conservatives on SoH and they liked it.
At least just try, I'll do one of yours if you'd like. It'll only be 3 questions.
Ok Scotty, you give it a go, come on.
I'm pretty sure Dominic saw it and probably flipped shit. Scotty Google it and tell me what the 3 ways economists stop recessions.
Not quite. I had some things to attend to. Give it a minute, not everyone sits on their phone or computer all day, trolling people for who knows what
People who disagree with you aren't trolling, but get ready to learn something from someone who's taken plenty of economics courses. This is literally day one stuff.
Well seeing as how we are no where near my original comment, you are trolling. Why don't you go ahead and enlighten us with you wisdom
Answer the question. If I tell you then you'll claim its propaganda and that I'm a liberal evil dictator.
So you get to find the answers yourself. Find the 3 ways to get us out of a recession. If you're smart you'll shit your pants when you see it.
Scotty? Dominic? No one?
Trust me I wouldn't if I were you either. You'd really learn something. Especially after the 3rd question. You'd probably shit your pants when you figure out Fox News lied to you.
I've found several but my guess is that your top two are going to be deficit spending and devaluation
What in the gods name are you reading? What did you google? Look at economics.
Anyways Google this instead and tell me if you can agree this drags an economy from a recession: transfer payments, lower taxes, increase government spending
I don't see how transfer payments would help
Rota, Google "Hong Kong" for a lesson on economics. And then watch this. You so desperately need it.
You don't think taking money from the uber rich and giving it to people who will immediately spend it will create economic activity?
(Keep in mind economic activity, NOT profit. Recession is a slow down in economic movements)
Scotty. Shh, we're having an education economics discussion. Take the Fox News and NRA weekly else where for sources.
Hey DominicLandry. As soon as you realize what I'm talking about you're either going to 1) Admit it works, or 2) Claim it doesn't, but there's a big trick to this one.
Just remember there's nothing bad with being wrong, being wrong is when you learn
And Dominic I'm jumping the gun here, but here's your transfer payments:
But the trap was that this isn't a total democratic policy.
Bush tried to use trickle down (Cutting taxes for the rich to create jobs) which failed.
Kansas GOP Governor cut all business taxes and GOPers are endorsing the democrats now. (Google it)
Reagan cut the MIDDLE CLASS (what Hillary's plan was!) taxes and the economy boomed. Which due to customers, businesses create jobs. Without customers, businesses don't. (Sound familiar?) This is injecting cash into the people who buy regularly.
lol Rota when Bush cut taxes revenues went UP and we had eight years of prosperity and 5% unemployment. Not surprised your government indoctrination camp didn't teach you that.
Scotty the bush tax cuts are in the chart there. Don't argue with me, write them a letter and tell them you know better.
These are the facts, you can call them liberal propaganda, but a few people finally understand why there are so few conservatives left in the world.
Traditional values doesn't work. Your GOP candidates know this. None of them will cut spending.
One of the deepest red states, with a senator of 30 years tried mitt romneys plan. Now he's neck and neck in a former "safe seat"
Socialism would have been nice there. It seemed to work for the US economic growth, but failed there. LIBERAL PROPAGANDA Brain washing!!! Omg!!
And what does your precious chart show of the early 1980s when Reagan slashed taxes like crazy?
When there's no confidence, people tend to save the money instead of spend it. I think we learned that with Obama's stimulus plan. How about the government stays out of business? Preventative measure
Customers do not create jobs. Customers create businesses. Businesses create jobs.
So more customers = Same number of people?
So when people use food stamps en masse at Walmart, wal mart keeps only 3 registers open? Also the rush in economic activity and spending is what pulled us out of the recession.
It's government money but yes it went to businesses from welfare recipients. The more people buying with food stamps = More profit/Money = More business expansion = More taxes for govt, more jobs for people. (Hence the unemployment went down)
And no there is no evidence of the Fox News claim that it's all part time jobs. Govt is granting businesses money, not the CEOs to create so many full time jobs for a deadline. It's worked well.
Also Dominican we discussed hillarys comment thoroughly and bipartisanly, in reality she didn't mean businesses don't hire people. It's a chicken or the egg debate. Do businesses create jobs due to money coming in or do they create them in hope of it
So yes you can be right in saying the chicken did, but the point is that more business creates more economic activity, rather than sitting in rich men's accounts and not being spent while the economy was slowing down.
I'm just trying to show you that it's not just Hillary saying that comment and not explaining it. There's a story behind it and it's not some crazy woman saying democrats hate businesses who make jobs :P hope you can agree.
Rota, this isn't hard. If government spending is the solution then why stop at only a trillion in stimulus? Let's just print 100 trillion and then BOOM, our economy will blossom into the stratosphere, right?
You see how stupid you people sound?
Liberals always forget, in order to spend all this money they first have to take it from the productive private sector. This is what you sound like:
Scotty, ask before you assume. Anyway to calculate how much we needed to put into govt Money, here's the equation:
Also in times of recession, we aren't spending much which is the point. Obama raised taxes on rich men, not "productive middle class". Nor did we tax as much as we needed.
Scotty. Are you one of those people who also think the government should have a surplus?
Also you need a macroeconomics class. If you knew about MPC and MPI you wouldn't utter that garbage.
Also no we didn't need to take any money from anyone in the first place. You probably also think govt debt is bad and that the U.S. is broke. The thing you don't hear on Fox News is how many countries owe us a shit ton of money. Including China.
Just taking your argument to its logical conclusion and exposing its central flaw. Seriously, put down Das Kapital and The Communist Manifesto and pick up a real economics book.
The US is the worlds largest debtor, and the worlds largest creditor. Our interest rates are much higher.
Seriously, don't be scared of education or whatever you call it "indoctrination". Read an economics book and try to make sense of it.
Anyways Dominic, you will learn these equations with MPC and MPI on the first few days of economics class as any school does.
Scotty if you'd like to try and debunk my arguments I'll answer you're questions with economics sources.
You're right, Fox News and Rush Limbaugh told me we're 17 TRILLION in debt and that means by definition we're broke. Lies, all lies.
Also DominicLandry, Forbes, a magazine who's always hated Obama printed this: www.forbes.com/sites/adamhartung/2014/09/05/obama-outperforms-reagan-on-jobs-growth-and-investing/
Very good read for economists.
Scotty the United States is SUPPOSED to be in debt. It's a government, not a business. There's not a single country in the world not in debt. Feel free to prove me wrong in that. Many are WAYYYY more in debt that us. Japan owes 400% of its GDP.
For every Luxemgourg person, they owe literally 3 MILLION dollars. Debt is not a bad thing because every country is in debt. We all borrow from each other for MANY beneficial reasons.
Stop spewing bull shit you're making up and post links from now
Look. All the non shït countries are at the top? I wonder why! Britain owes 160,000 per person.
In b4 Scotty saying "Liberals make debt cause they're mean and evil! They r dumb!"
Oh and look at China's debt. Guess who they owe 1/3 of it to?
The United States.
The US has 16.4 TRILLION that they've credited to these countries.
"Scotty the United States is SUPPOSED to be in debt."
And that tells me everything I need to know about your education. Okay kid, I'm going back to work, go back to your home room for announcements.
You really don't know how economics or a country is ran do you?
Governments aren't supposed to make money off the citizenry. It's not a company. There hasn't been a govt since the 1700s who wasn't in debt. That's very old economics.
The United States has never not been in debt.
An increase in customers and a beginning base of customers is different. Even if you don't want the government to run a surplus, you should be for them breaking even. Not doing too little or too much. Serving its purpose.
Nancy Pelosi is an excellent lawmaker
"We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it."
I think the woman looks insane, but if you follow her train of thought and read into what she's saying... Well to put it nicely, you can see where she is going and what the flaws in her logic were.
She acts too much without preparing with her aids.
I believe something along the lines of collecting a tax on a person's life insurance.
Hitler had some good ideas
Ironic because the furthest point you can go on the right wing is literally nazism. That's not a liberal if he said that.
That's interesting Rota considering Hitler's party was called the National SOCIALIST German Workers' Party.
They called themselves socialists. Socialism has always been and is still the dominant force of Europe. Besides Britain there's no country without a strong majority presense, Denmark has a Total of 8 centrists/law makers in parliament.
And those 8'conservatives are centrist right. They consider American Democrats as centrist right. So you imagine living under the Bundestat and tell me America is socialist.
Yes they called themselves Socialist because, shocker, they were socialists! It has always perplexed me the left tries to make Hitler out to be a tea party type when he was so clearly a rabid leftist.
That's the Danish parliament. Click the conservatives page to see their ideology and stance on issues. They consider American conservatives as extremists.
Scotty the extremist left is Anarchism and Communism. It's lower government. The right extremists are totalitarian.
Don't try to argue it with me without posting a link to something saying the opposite.
"Scotty the extremist left is Communism. It's lower government."
How exactly is communism "lower government"? You just said that, You really just said that, lol.
Political ideology is a 4 way spectrum.
Because you're associating communism with Stalinism and Maoism.
I don't mean this offensively, but have you studied communism? As in have you taken time to actually know what it is and what they stand for rather than just dismiss it?
lol again, if we just did it the "right" way communism would work perfectly!
It's already killed 100+ million, maybe another 100 million and we'll finally get it right.
Scotty do you know how many conservatism has killed? Religion?
That is why most of Europe rejects conservatism completely. It just doesn't work. Finland, an uber-socialist nation has already passed us in academics.
I'm an atheist but even I can admit communist regimes which had state-sponsored atheism and suppression of all religion have killed FAR more people than religion. It's not even close.
After 200 years of the crusades for example, the highest estimate is that three million died. In the 20th century alone communism (atheism) killed over 100 million. Again, not even close.
The crusades were responsible for so much more. Not to mention manifest destiny "God gives us the land" where estimates are now that 50-100 million natives killed.
Also the Soviet Union didn't have 100 million people to kill.
He killed around 19 million and most were not for Christianity. Most popular forms of Christianity (Russian/Ukranian Orthodox) were allowed. Protestants were, Catholics were not.
If they had killed 100m, their population would have been 30m.
Actually no, look it up. Three million is the highest estimate. In fairness I understand you think it's more because our government indoctrination camps... err, "schools" harp on it so much while giving communism a pass, but it's a fact.
And no, Columbus didn't kill that many. For a proper context follow this link and scroll to the bottom of page 15 and read along. Pretty interesting.
.... Scotty don't be foolish. Look at my state, then look at yours. We got about the same start in life education wise.
This is called a Patriots history.... If you're saying don't listen to liberal media but presenting me a conservative piece of media; you're not convincing me.
It's not just the Soviet Union, you're forgetting Mao and his Cultural Revolution and Great Leap Forward, along with other smaller nations. The total worldwide body count under communism is 100 million.
No Mao isn't the only one.
Also you're justifying that communists were mass murders with a conservative president who just led office that had a concentration camp in Iraq and 500,000 unarmed civilians died. Mass murder doesn't help.
I agree, our government indoctrination camps did me much harm as they *obviously* did to you as well. I've spent the following ten years re-educating myself, perhaps you should try the same when you get out of middle school or whatever you're in.
It has nothing to do with the book, it's simple logic. You're trying to estimate the deaths of a completely unexplored continent *500 years* after the fact. It's a laughably impossible task and that's why the estimates vary by over 400%.
You're one of those types afraid of education and getting an education. "Everything is propaganda!"
You do realize what you sound like right?
Anyways can you do the test now? Because you're avoiding it.
If Christopher Columbus came in the late 1600s...
Actually you'll claim I'm indoctrininating you.
Please add 500 to the above number.
"If Christopher Columbus came in the late 1600s..."
lol heard of the year 1492? hahahahaha
Yeah you're right I had the wrong person. Anyways go on. The deaths don't count because they're 500 years ago?
Where is your source about 100 million dead from communists? An actual source not Sarah Palins Diary or the shit you've been linking.
No, it was from the same book where you learned Columbus arrived in the late 1600s and that the Civil War happened in 1992. Oh, and we landed on the moon in 1859.
Yeah I didn't think so. Thanks for making my ego bigger!
Also I can admit when I'm wrong rather than trying to hang myself with what rope I have left.
There's never anything bad about being wrong, it's a learning experience!
Hey Rota, I'm having a history class tomorrow. Can I cheat of you? I'm having trouble remembering when Jesus died. Wasn't it like 1356?
No, it was in 1969.
"I don't think all republicans are dumb..."
"Republicans are proposing a tax plan to cut business taxes."
"Some republicans are educated, we shouldn't sink to their childish level"
"Not all republicans are racist..."
'The government will protect us if anything happens, we don't need guns'
Said by no one ever except a written statement on Fox News.
This is a statement that a liberal actually said to me during a debate.
'She already has enough money, so I deserve some of it'
'businesses don't create jobs (government does)'
'communism is actually really good, it's just never been tried yet'
1) you'll never spend 10 billion dollars, giving it to people who spend it generates economic activity.
2) She did not say or mean government does. She was saying trickle down economics doesn't work. And look at Kansas. It didn't.
2) (cont) hence why there's so many Kansas republicans now voting democrat in this election. Before you deny it, Google it.
3) Said by no one ever.
Rota, you should know this considering you live on the forums 24/7 but liberals are *constantly* saying communism would work if we just did the "right" way. I read this almost on a daily basis.
Yes but it's not that it hasn't happened yet. Leninism worked great until totalitarianism took over. Statins greed screwed over a communist nation.
That is the problem with communism. It's too vulnerable to let an ass hole in to screw it up.
It's literally no rules.
Also that makes no sense? I'm on the forums 24/7 but haven't read as much as you?
lol and there you have it folks, communism would just work if those pesky things called humans would just stop screwing it up. Point. Proven.
Take my test above on economics then. You get to google and pick your source. It's a republican/democrat agreed concept. We just handle it two different ways.
Run Scotty, run!
No I agree, communism would just work if we can get the "right" people running it. Eventually Jesus will return with his friend Santa Claus and usher in the utopia!
Yeah.... You have no idea what communism is. You know when you meet an uber Christian who tells you you're wrong all the time because the book says it but they won't even try to co,e to reality? You have such a closed mind towards anything different
That it's kind of concerning me. You're acting like some of the nazi party members did.
No no you're right, communism will work if we put the "right" people in charge. Maybe in addition to Jesus and Santa Claus we'll add the Easter Bunny and it'll finally work as intended.
Actually to be honest. Jesus would be a socialist in today's time.
You don't know what a socialist is or you'd agree like the right wingers that do.
You do realize the right wing does this for sport right?
I agree, Jesus would be a socialist and that's one of the many reasons I choose not to believe in that fairy tale.
Jesus was never political. He said that to help the poor you should do it personally and do it on your own with your own money, not force people to help the poor through taxes
Haha, the Elizabeth Warren one is pretty stupid too.
"No one needs ten buwwets to kiww a deeya!!!!"
That too many people on Guam would cause it tip "capsize and tip over."
