    The ONLY reason I am in favor of gay marriage is that it pisses the hell out of you old, conservative foooooooookers! Go, gays, go!

  • Matthew

    …to cameras watching your every move , to Google house views , etc. Where does it stop & what are our rights ?

    I can’t say too much about this, as I don’t want to get my source in trouble, but I think people would be shocked at just how widespread some of this surveillance technology is, and how exponentially it’s effectiveness is growing. Current facial recognition software can accurately analyze a crowd at a rate of around 30,000 faces a second.

  • TheBoss1

    Hey, d.d. How are you? I’m pretty wasted due to happy hour. I am on Spring break so I thought I’d check in. I see the same old haters are still hating.

    Meet the new boss. Same as the old boss.

    (that’s for my main man, coffee!).

  • Key

    TheAss1: What about all the conservatives that support gay marriage?

  • Matthew

    …or was it 3,000? She told me about it back in August of 2012. Well, either way, all of these cameras are really freaking good at what they do, and they are everwhere in my county. Yikes.

  • Mark2

    Conservatives are always on the wrong side of History.

    Poor Rush Limbaugh has given up on the anti-gay marriage fight.

  • Letmethink

    @Matthew–insult you for your personal life–ha
    You are the one who lead us to believe you were a down and out young college student who had a sick dog so you dropped out of college, moved in with your parents and worked nights. Funny though–you posted night and day–until your guy won then you disappeared. When did you sleep, eat, date, work? Speaking of work—you even posted at night when you were supposed to be working. Great work ethics Matthew!! Then Cathy outed you as a not so young college drop out. If as you say you live at home and work nights–fine. But for you to say you are not a college drop out because you plan to go back. And for you to take any arrogant high ground an insult other posters here is laughable. I have put you on the no read list with usa888—birds of a feather!!!

  • usa8888

  • Ralph Hahn

    @Chriscee: Don’t go out of your way to try to make these libtard skunks see common sense. They just won’t…they CAN’T. They get their White House talking points from the Liblogists each morning and they won’t stray. And, DON’T directly engage them when they try to bait you with questions, defending the GOP, GOD, or Rush Limbaugh. ussr666, Mark2goofy, “Jeffy” and Matthew. I’m probably missing a few. They are ALL out of the woodwork like roaches today because after two weeks or longer, Madcow finally topped Hannity in the demo. The REST of the MSNBC schedule is in shambles, but Madcow saves the day. Why does SHE feel she can answer only questions that she is comfortable answering. Just take mine and Ratboy’s advice: Don’t answer any loaded question they ask you. They all bore each other that’s why they’re trying to engage you in debate. You would find it easier to ‘refer’ to them en masse than directly. It feeds their egos.

    @TheBoss1: You’re back…and BADDER than ever.

    @AppleStinx: My undying admiration.

    @Ratboy: My blood. lol

  • Chriscee

    @ Ralph…NONE of them….scare me….

    Democrats love to attack the messenger. It’s ok…attack attack attack..it only makes their party look more ridiculous than it already is.

    They wonder why Obama’s polling numbers have taken a nose dive.

  • Chriscee

    CBO: Food Stamp Rolls Estimated to Hit Historic High

    Thanks to Obama – and making the lazy man….ever more lazy.

    Per NPR:

    Every month, 14 million people now get a disability check from the government.

    The federal government spends more money each year on cash payments for disabled former workers than it spends on food stamps and welfare combined. Yet people relying on disability payments are often overlooked in discussions of the social safety net. The vast majority of people on federal disability do not work.[1] Yet because they are not technically part of the labor force, they are not counted among the unemployed.

    Over 1 million new unemployment claims every single month under Obama…..If they counted 1/2 the people on disability….our unemployment rate would be over 10%. But magically Obama decided they aren’t worthy to be counted.


  • Ratboy

    Hey dare Ralphie Boy!! :)

  • Ralph Hahn

    @Chriscee: You’re doing a great job, BTW. Just post your stuff. Don’t give the benefit of the doubt that you are actually paying attention to them. As a Christian, I think it is fitting to recall when Jesus Christ was tempted by Satan for 40 days and 40 nights, yet He remained faithful to our God.

    You see I have a master plan. If we pretend that these Democrat liberal “goons” don’t get responses from us, maybe they’ll get tired and attempt to terrorize 8 year olds on the ‘net, cause they all seemed to gang up on you today.

    No, I believe you when you say they don’t scare you. F-em.

  • Matthew

    Please don’t lie, Letmethink. I corrected you the first time you posted all of that, and not only do you not have the courtesy to apologize, but you double down?

    You are the one who lead us to believe you were a down and out young college student who had a sick dog so you dropped out of college, moved in with your parents and worked nights.

    I never said any of those things, except in regards to my dog’s herniated disc. I never moved out of my apartment, and I never dropped out. I chose not to take any classes this semester, because I don’t want to take student loans, didn’t want to dig too deeply into my savings, and didn’t know what would happen with the fiscal cliff. That isn’t the same as dropping out, I’ll be able to take summer and fall classes, now that I’m reasonably comfortable that things will be stable this year.

    Funny though–you posted night and day–until your guy won then you disappeared. When did you sleep, eat, date, work? Speaking of work—you even posted at night when you were supposed to be working. Great work ethics Matthew!!

    I don’t know what you’re talking about. I posted frequently for a period, but a lot of working people here do – for example, Cathy and Coffee post at a variety of hours. We are in the era of the smart phone, you know. My shifts at that time began at 1:00 AM, and my finishing hours can be highly variable – I work in a distribution warehouse, and the work is…done when it’s done. Not noble work, I’ll grant you, in comparison to all of the six-figure earners here, but our employer takes good care of us in pay and benefits, relative to most of my other options in this economy.

    Also, please don’t call Obama ‘my guy.’ I didn’t vote for him, I don’t like his approach to leadership, and I freaking hate his lack of regard for civil liberties. Thanks.

    Then Cathy outed you as a not so young college drop out.

    When? That entire exchange on my age was based on the premise that I was “too young” to watch a political satire show, and I explained that for most of it’s early life the Daily Show wasn’t about serious politics, it was just a straightforward silly news parody, and yes I started watching it when I was very young. I was also already watching Letterman when I was in middle school. Please don’t present your speculation as fact.

    And for you to take any arrogant high ground an insult other posters here is laughable.

    True. No excuses. I’ve been mean and condescending to other posters here, and there’s no justification for that, no externalization that makes it okay. No matter how other posters might treat me, or others, that doesn’t make it okay for me to disrespect them, and I’ll have to do my best to show others the respect they deserve.

    And it’s with all of that in mind that I still don’t understand why you feel that you have some kind of high ground here. You have, once again, posted the single most personal, malicious string of insults I’ve ever received for the entire duration of my presence on this site. I’m not hurt, I’m just confused and disappointed more than anything else.

  • Dreamer

    Great, another lbsles and usa8888 to skip over.
    I guess there needs to be one more of the Democrat persuasion to balance out. haaha

  • Chriscee

    It’s so awesome when you can highlight in blue….you want a cookie??

  • Ralph Hahn

    @Letmethink: GREAT response to Matthew. LOL
