And a blast from the past: Ryan vs Geithner:
We can rebuild him....we can make him faster, stronger.
....and it should only cost about 6 million dollars.....hell....that's cheap today.
The look on Timmy's face will be totally worth it.
Last I checked a Etch A Sketch was only $12.98 on Amazon, shipped.
It's now Ronald Reagan vs the American Dreamer.
Who's Ronald Reagan? Is he related to John Galt?
OK.....so where the hell is John Galt?
Who is John Galt?
The American Dreamer is anyone who sees this election as more than a choice between pepsi and coke.
Niether choice is the real thing.
Dog n pony...
Notice the no tie look...totally scripted. Puke.
It's worse, because you can tell he was wearing one about ten minutes before he appeared on camera.
Pinnochio or Chucky.
Etch a Sketch? Boy you don't miss a drop of misinformation from the msm do you. And I bet you think you're not the average msm zombie. Think again.
at least he trashed Timmy! i have feeling this jerkoff Ryan will be net asset to Romney. bottom line i just can't stand any of these people. now if Ryan lied and said elect us and we'll dissolve the fed and get the hell out of the stock market and shrink gov and lower taxes, then at least that'd be a lie worth entertaining, but i'm still not voting for any of these losers.
Ryan said " America is the ONLY country founded on an idea..." we are goverened by nature and God, not government..." OMG this asshole is the pure definition of a TWIRP!
Is that pronounced like "Reno" or "rhino"?
For most people here, wouldn't everyone in the Republican Party be a RINO, except for Ron Paul?
Rhino .... as in faux elephant !
At this point, is there anyone who actually believes it makes a difference who sits in the POTUS chair?
Man, who is this Ryan dude? What a douchebag.
You don't know who he is but you've already labeled him a douchebag?
OK....were going to put you in charge monkeyboy.....try not to screw it up.
Hope Rand Paul learned his lesson.. you can't make deals with the devils.
No worries....there will still be poker night on Fridays.
how many devils did you have in mind?
In my book there is one and he is FED up to his ears!
so ryan paul and rand paul are not the same animal?
brothers from a different mother ...
sounds like Ryan Paul's mother is Ayn Rand.
Can anybody in his right mind get randy about Ayn?
I mean that's worse than pain, its truly Cain county cuntry!
So based on this analogy Rand Paul is Abel.
Maybe he will finish like him as well!
Meanwhile Mitt the Mormon heads for the White house in the Delaware plain. Doesn't rain in that plain except dirty banksta frogs and dirtier lobbyists!
Ryan voted for the TARP bailout and the Republican expansion of Medicare. Ayn Rand would have favored neither.
Ayn Rand was also an Athiest, so wouldn't have talked about Christ all the time either.
LOL. Who is down voting me? Ayn Rand Objectivism and Christianity are logically incompatible ideologies because Objectivism promotes Atheism, yet the Christian Right in this country manages to trample logic on a daily basis by holding aloft both Jesus and Ayn simultaneously.
One can find value in a person's ideas without adopting their philosophies wholesale.
I like the part where they can say greed is good and greed is bad in the same breath.
The negative qualities associated with so called greed are most often the result of high time preference performance rather than low time preference performance. The common example is found in the story The Goose that Laid the Golden Egg. A desire to acquire golden eggs does not cause the negative outcome, a desire to possess all the golden eggs immediately through efforts which destroy the means of golden egg production causes the negative outcome.
Circular logic and semantics to justify a mortal sin, just like everyone else with a fragmented mind.
She died living on welfare and medicaid!
She lived being forced to pay into Social Security and Medicare! She didn't want to but she had to! She wouldn't have entered that system voluntarily and she would not have forced anyone else to do so either!
Slightly modified Alinski bullshit:
Demand that they offer not just “a solution”, but THE solution. Obviously, no one person has “the” solution. When he fails to produce the miracle you requested, dismiss his entire argument and all the facts he has presented as pointless.
you are using
Demand that someone not just “live as an example”, but as THE perfect example. Obviously, no one person has lived “the” perfect life. When the person fails to be the miracle you requested, dismiss his/her entire arguments and all the facts he/she has presented as pointless.
paul ryan and rand paul? definitely the same animal.
paul ryan and ron paul? both politicians, but not the same.
Go Team Ream Ronny!
I think team Ronny is Ron Paul, not Romney/Ryan.
No, I meant making Ronald Reagan's ghost airtight.
I wish he would have picked Syrian Girl instead.
Nice... Wow, she is beautiful, smart, and very sweet...
According to Romney ... Ryan to be next President!!!
What a frickin brilliant move - in a John McCain kind of way.
Romney/Ryan will make McCain/Palin seem like a good idea!
Mitt has temporarily taken his foot out of his mouth in order to shoot himself in it
Yippee... Austerity for the bottom, fat military contracts for the 1%, bigger pile of debt, increased polarization, more stupid wars.
Not to worry. The Romney/Ryan ticket is the recipe for an Obama victory in November.
But WTF -- Obama? Romney? Opposite sides of the same coin. Nothing changes.
Ryan's speech has a lot of anti-establishment rhetoric in it for someone who has served (himself perhaps) in congress for 14 fucking years. Has Ryan ever run a business on his own without government assistance. A serious question,but either way, it looks like banks (and the military industrial complex) win again. Color me shocked, time to reposition for the forthcoming, but transitory, rally in financials and manufacturers of military hardware. Time to front-run these guys and take at least a little something back (because we all know that capitals gains will not be taxed now - some good news).
Load up the boats bitchez! We got more lands to conquer; more nations to force the Dollar!
Hhmm, might want to focus on the dollar at home first. I see many exchanging all sorts of things already, especially as real unemployment continues to climb and the unemployment insurance ends (which most have already paid for by the way).
Which reminds me, if social security is an "entitlement", how come my employees and I fucking pay for it?
"Which reminds me, if social security is an "entitlement", how come my employees and I fucking pay for it?"
Exactly! And what the hell happened to all that money we have paid?
SS Trust Fund - Yeah, right...
global currency...or at least the amero to start is the plan, but the plan isn't working quite yet. must be some bickering between the "owners".
According to the Supreme Court, SSI is a gratuity. As in , it's a tip .
Ryan, voted for NDAA, war with Iraq, Patriot Act, wants to strike Iran, is a total Israel stooge, won't prosecute the banks for their fraud, voted for TARP, voted for warrantless wiretapping, voted for GM/Chrysler bailouts, voted for all ``free trade agreements`` that sent jobs overseas, voted yes on more prisons, voted against patrols on the Mexican border to fight drug smuggling and terrorism, voted to keep medical marijuana illegal...
The guy says he's a small government republican but he really likes the government controlling your life... just like democrats. He's a RINO, a statist, nowhere near a real conservative... just like Romney, who likes to ban guns.
Romney signs off on permanent assault weapons ban Governor Mitt Romney has signed into law a permanent assault weapons ban that he says will make it harder for criminals to get their hands on these guns.
Deadly assault weapons have no place in Massachusetts, Romney said, at a bill signing ceremony on July 1 with legislators, sportsmen groups and gun safety advocates. These guns are not made for recreation or self-defense. They are instruments of destruction with the sole purpose of hunting down and killing people.
Keep voting bitchez, I'm sure it'll fix everything! /sarc
Great post. Take these weapons out of the hands of law-abiding citizens (the criminals will be given these weapons- i. e. fast and furious, started by Bush and overlooked by Holder)
Stupid fucking sheep.
I was sure the Mormons had mastered cloning (or some genetic approximation thereof) and would have "Kitt" Romney be his running mate.
When you are already inbred, cloning is somewhat redundant. Open a phone book in Salt Lake City the next time you are there.
And pick up a pair of magic Mormon underwear at the clothing shop downtown. If you wear black pants and a white shirt, you will look like a bicycle missionary and they will sell it to you. Steve Young used to take his off before every 49ers game so it wouldn't get soiled. Bill Marriot claims it saved his life in a boating accident or something.
Maybe necessary for the role-playing needs of your more '50 Shades of Regressed Man-Child' elements of society.
Had a Mormon girlfriend when I was a younger man...batshit crazy, but hot in the sack, damn near got her banished.
Seen them all too close; a scary combo of disassociated ethics and 'Stepford' mechanical execution.
Romney's "alien" vibe is not a unique phenomenon.
Yes, my wife's coworker is Mormon and the gossip she lays on her regarding her interactions with other Mormons is juicy, detailed and bizarre, to put it mildly. Yes, like Maury with Stepford Wives.
Thank you staff liberals for the illuminating exchange .... this ticket has got you both worried ?
I'm a Post-Left Anarchist, not a Liberal. Go read up for the future so you can dis me better.
Why would a losing ticket worry anyone?
It seems to me that it's a little odd that Romney announced his pick this far ahead of the convention. I wonder what kind of impact Ron Paul and his delegates will have, surely the fight isn't over. Maybe that's why Romney announced his pick now, to make it seem like it is.
A reasonable hypothesis. As it stands now, I will write in Ron Paul and suspect many more will as well, especially if Mr. Romney continues to belittle and ignore Paul's supporters and the honest questions of where all the Federal Reserve's money really fucking went.
"...I will write in Ron Paul..."
Won't do any good. Even if Ron Paul had the popular vote via write-in, the electoral college would elect one of the MIC/Bankster presidential clones.
"Won't do any good".
Billshit, I will sleep well. You are a retard if you don't think solutions begin with the individual.
Over the years I've found that I can only change myself. So I've learned to adapt and profit from those things that are resistant to change. That's just dealing with reality instead of living the Hopium high.
Correct, and yes, frontrunning ignorance is indeed profitable.
The follow should be inscribed at every boarder crossing into the US (and placed on warning signs across the southern boarder in liue of a fence:
Through me you enter into the city of woes, Through me you enter into eternal pain, Through me you enter the population of loss.
Justice moved my high maker, in power divine, Wisdom supreme, love primal. No things were Before me not eternal; Eternal I remain.
Abandon all hope, you who enter here.
...and Buy The Fucking Dip!
I don't think that quote is in the video game.
> I wonder what kind of impact Ron Paul and his delegates will have
I generally agree with your comments and enjoy reading them - but I had to junk you for the RP comment above. RP is nothing more than CONOP... a well placed distraction.
It's the truth, but junk away anyhow.
The only "truth" now is that banks and financial houses own your ass. Hedge accordingly (it's all you can really do anyway).
That's okay I don't mind being junked, I question everything now a days myself. I can only look at his history and the consistency that comes with it.
Mitt had to nab Paul Ryan so he could have some street cred and help people forget about the Massachusetts healthcare plan he wrote, a.k.a. Obamacare.
$60B added to the deficit to buy chemically dependent known-reliable voters; it's the Pugnican't wedge to get old fogies out from under the Dems wings.
"Keep your government hands outta my Medicare drug stash, socialists!"
"Keep your government hands outta my Medicare drug stash, socialists!"
No strangers to the medical industrial complex, they.
New boss, same as the old boss.
Just vote for Gary Johnson and let the chips fall where they may.
oh shit...... well, the chips will fall giving us 4 more years of no-jobama....
how hard is to understand..... as imperfect as the current choice may be,
it is far better than obama.... GJ just does not have the numbers to be elected.
Why? Just because the sticker says he is "libertarian?"
Nobody cares about what a Vice President says. This was done to shut Ryan up.
Unless of course it is actually the Vice President running the country, as in the case of Dick Cheney.
You do have a good point there.
Though in this case I'm pretty sure Romney is the top and Ryan is the bottom. ;)
Maybe Romney plans to be President just like he was CEO of Bain?
Romney’s response to all of the BainGate hoopla seems to be that he was in charge, he was the sole stockholder, President and CEO, but he wasn’t responsible for what the company did. This begs the question, would Romney run America like he ran Bain? Reaping the money, the glory, and the power without taking any responsibility for his decisions?
That's how everything is run in America. The people who do the least work take all the wealth. If you dangle a shiny penny in front of 100 people, they will do all the work to make you a millionaire. You can spend your days taking clients out for Prime Rib, playing golf and dropping by the office to yell at people when the numbers don't add up.
Times they are a changin'
Finally.....some real change.
Here......have a glass of Koolaid.....it's totally free.
Dick Cheney and William Kristol love Paul Ryan...that's all you really need to know. They also love Mitt Romney's stable of foreign policy and 'national security' advisors.
Mitt Romney Announces Foreign Policy And National Security Advisory Team
Final fittings for Mittens marionnette strings forthcoming.
That foreign policy team just talked me into voting for the Kenyan.
just another typical hypocrite from DC
Hahahaha. Joke's on us.
If I'm not mistaken I think the delegates in Tampa will have the final say on this matter.
I'm smelling liberal panic !
Shit, anyone who runs a business and hasn't already purchased a politician is panicking.
Small business owners are panicked by Mr. "you didn't build it." Obamacare freaks them out too, and many will be forced out of business because of the added cost. No healthcare waivers for them, just for his big business buddies.
They should agree tag team mud wrestling arbitration to decide the election !
no puppies :(
FACTS: whatever your political persuasion is, to get the debt down to manageable levels (~ 50% of GDP) there will have to be a 1.5 Trillion or 1,500 Billion ANNUAL adjustment to the fiscal budget for at least 30 years!!
Any combination of revenue increases, spending reductions, or program eliminations that add up to 1,500 Billion PER YEAR will be required to get the house in order, OR the Bond vigilantes take over, spike interest rates to the moon, the dollar crashes, inflation hyper accelerates, and the Dollar no longer the world's reserve currency.
It isn't about politics, folks, that luxury has passed us by a long time ago.
Do something for once for your children and grandchildren and get prepared to make some sacrificies.
Its all about the math, and you can't escape it.
I refuse to be responsible for other peoples children.
Things are much better in the afterlife.
This life you're on your own.
How can no-one get it. This election and the next 10 years, is about what is going to be sacrificed and who is going to be sacrificed.
Every statistic out there says that the children and grandchildren were already the first ones thrown under the bus.
If you're 25-30 you are in the shit. If you are 18-24 you are in major deep shit. The ones younger than them are having any hope of education cut and schools closed. And if they somehow make it through with some brains, they go to college and into debt bondage... because the Boomers can't afford to retire until 6 months after they are dead.
If the entire Senior 1MM class from college graduated with engineering degrees, just like the this society is telling them they should be doing, that doesn't mean 1MM engineering jobs would suddenly appear.
We Boomers have fucked every generation scheduled to come after us. There's nothing left of value in them. Now the feeding starts on each other.
If you need to know what a Romney/Ryan are going to sacrifice, it's everything they don't need because they are rich and powerful.
I never begrudge somebody making it up the ladder, it's these fuckers who want to pull the ladder up behind them.
Get smart, we don't have to make the major sacrifices. They do.
Hear, hear. "They" have to make the sacrifices. "They" need to pay and spend some time BEHIND BARS for crimes against the Constitution... and they will... http://tinyurl.com/cd5cyjo/
I've been retired 20 years (Living frugally until the PMs take off ! Then I gotta live frugally so my neighbors don't get wise !) .... will Obama make me give those years back ? Retro-fuck !
HOLY KICK THE CAN BATMAN!!! Is Timmy serious in that second video?
This is great... Romney found a male Sarah Pailin. The USA can only get the government it deserves, which is not much.
I can't wait. The cycle has to move as the cycle moves. I'm an equal opportunity basher, so don't anybody who loves the triangulating Obama think they are off the hook.
If 20th Century history repeats, Romney and Ryan are a sho in.
This country will learn a whole new level of raped and pilaged. This time there will be nothing left when they are done.
Let's get it over with. Obama et al are just dragging this out.
We have to finish off the Middle Class completely, before we can hit The Big Reset switch.
Hutchins, throw another peasant on the fire, it's getting cool in here.
You lot would be better off with an innanimate object than any of the shit you 300 million folk can offer.
Is this really the best mankind is capable of? Is it any wonder we are fucked? Left, right, up, down, the water has been muddied folks, and by my astute eye only us ZH bitchez can see the trees from the woods
I just want to know if he can spell Potatoe; I mean Temato; in other words I mean, who F#$KING cares.
Democracy is worth it just for saving us from people like Hitler, Stalin, Mao .... and Obama .... maybe it's not working so well right now !
More war, debt, and bailouts *for now* http://tinyurl.com/cd5cyjo/
Here we have it folks.. the best and the brightest of the Tea Party.. while attempting to burn the cross on Obama's lawn.. instead set their own robes on fire.
