    Is it better than Labon: King of the Rings??

    There's no taking the high ground with these people. Take the high ground and you're accused of being patronising, preachy or - God help us - intellectual. No, he said a stupid, crass, unsupportable thing and I'm calling him on it.

    IMO, both party's are full of crap and hypocritical. Like former governor Jessie Ventura has said, both part's are like 2 street gangs who are more interested in beating each other then they are in solving our country's problems. When someone in one party has a good idea, the other party will shoot that idea down mainly because no one in their own party suggested the idea first.

    Also, rip into Dan Slott's ideas as much you like, but he does post on here sometimes - it's not really on for you to comment on his ass. Unless, I suppose, it's via PM, and in a loving way.
    I agree. We must not go over to the Wack side of the force. Attack/debate the person's ideas and opinions, but do not insult the person (unless he/she insults you first).

And, seriously, halfmadjesus, those sketches you keep including? They're VERY disturbing. Quit it.
    Come on, you know you made that one your screen saver.

    So, off to Merry Olde England after Tuesday then, or...?

    But amuse me, if you like, amuse us all, by explaining what you'd have done to fix America's problems if you, as a result of some largely terrifying set of circumstances, had been elected to the Oval Office four years ago. Try to be detailed in your thoughts; you think you should be president, after all.
    Many, many presidents have been elected into office WITHOUT the benefit of supermajorities in both houses of congress, yet somehow they've still managed to get things done without whining about it incessantly. Barack Obama had it within his ability to do pretty much anything he wanted to during his first two years. As long as his ideas weren't so kook-fringe as to scare off moderate Democrats, like Obamacare did -- thus all the wrangling and bribery to get it passed.

    Here's a few things I WOULDN'T have done if I were Barack Obama and I wanted to do something like, say, improve the economy:

    • I wouldn't have campaigned saying I was going to bankrupt coal producers
    • I wouldn't have put the kibosh on oil drilling in the Gulf of Mexico
    • I wouldn't have decreased the amount of oil production on federal lands (while taking credit for increased production on non-federal lands that I had nothing to do with, at every possible opportunity)
    • I wouldn't have nixed installation of the Keystone Pipeline
    • I wouldn't keep insisting that the debt ceiling be raised
    • I wouldn't be constantly threatening to raise taxes
    • I wouldn't have spent a trillion-plus dollars a year, with nothing to show for it
    • I wouldn't have passed a trillion dollar stimulus (and be itching to do so again) where "shovel-ready jobs" were anything but, and large portions of that money ended up in the hands of bundlers and other cronies
    • I wouldn't have the Federal Reserve printing dollars like crazy
    • I wouldn't keep pushing Big Government as the solution to creating jobs/fixing the economy


    That's just off the top of my head, for starters.

    This is even sillier than the last political "article", Rich.

    Not what I'm saying. Actually, what got us going down this road was the comment "don't let the door hit your fat ass on the way out," which was basically to mean "I'll hold that door for you while you move to England, as I'd just as soon you'd leave, already." Slott is fat, though, and apparently softened enough from his success that he doesn't feel the pain Obama has inflicted on the middle/lower classes here. Thus, the adjective. We can move on now, if you'd like, or...?

    AND this why we really shouldn't mix politics with comics. Nearly half the country feels the same way about the other nearly half of the country. Unless ALL the idiots figure out WE need to work together to fix things, it really doesn't matter much who wins 'cuz we all lose.

    For the record, this would get a Like if I were able. Both sides are convinced that their antics are justified, and there is no taking the high ground with the other. Or, for another example that's been posed around here a few times lately, both sides have their people who actually claim to believe that nearly half of the country is insane. I suppose that makes it easier than actually trying to understand why they believe differently, but it certainly doesn't accomplish anything positive.

    Why do you feel Dan Slott should move to England? For the free healthcare once you've kicked his soft ass? Or because you think he's a limp-wristed tea-drinker? I almost hate to break this to you, but Hugh Grant's DVDs, sadly perhaps, are not necessarily an accurate representation of modern British society.
