"Adults recognize there are crazies on both sides." - Anonymous [a concern troll]

No. Our 'Side' is rational conservatism. That automatically excludes crazies of any stripe. The Left is by definition, crazy.

Insanity; def: doing the same thing over and over, expecting a different outcome each time.

Marxist, redistributionist, thugocracies have been tried many times down though history. They always fail for the same basic reasons. Modern Leftists keep trying to make it work again and again. Fail. QED: crazy. Therefore, not 'us'.

Bomb throwing, killing, etc. is not a rational conservative response to a political issue. Therefore, not 'us' even if they call themselves Christians, etc.

So, there are NOT crazies on 'both sides'.

You're not the head of your club so just because someone doesn't have methods you agree with doesn't mean you can kick them out.

Insanity; def: doing the same thing over and over, expecting a different outcome each time.

Yeah, like when Reagan did big tax cuts and doubled the national debt. Then Dubya did the same thing and doubled it again. Now the Tea Partyers want to go for the trifecta.

You've just proven that your side has at least one crazy...

Okay, this made me laugh. He seems to have never left his house and all info he receives comes from fox news. Yet another dumb consumer.

You keep saying 'Left' ... Left of what, exactly?

Rational conservatism is an oxymoron.

DevilsChaplain is no doubt the troll.
DevilsChaplain is brilliant at bringing fundies out.

Speak for yourself. I think you fuckers are batshit insane.

Yep, because nothing screams "rational" more loudly than taking a gun to a site where the president is appearing, or holding up signs of the president with a Hitler mustache.
Oh, and your definition of crazy is a humorous one. Kind of like if I said the definition of "rational conservative" is a "bed-wetting, room-termerature IQ, gun-fucking, ignorant sociopath who thinks it is rational to consider as a guidebook for living in the 21st Century a book of poorly written mythology produced by people who were mentally centuries in their thinking behind such ancient peoples as the Egyptians and Mesopitamians, to the point that they were considered the rednecks of their time."

Oh wait, my humorous definition is actually true.

"Our 'Side' is rational conservatism. "

That's like atheist muslims. Theres no such thing.

There is no left. There are the loonies on the right and there is reality.

Rational conservativism, lol. That rationality starts with the belief that there is an invisible man that lives in the sky.

Where's the religion? It HAS to be religious to be fundie.

And no, I will not read the site's FAQ, especially not the bold:


What's a 'Fundie'?

Fundie

1. A usually religious person or entity characterized by one or more of the following: an extreme lack of rationality, fondness of logical fallacies, repeated use of emotional appeals, rigid adherence to Bronze Age mythology, endorsement of pseudoscientific nonsense, opposition to the First Amendment, bigotry and discriminatory attitudes towards minority groups, belief that certain children's media is the work of Satan, and propensity to post Bible verses instead of valid argument.

It should be noted that one can be religious--even a fundamentalist--but not actually attain the vaunted status of "fundie," which needs that special touch only people fitting stereotypical caricatures can provide. Additionally, religion is technically not even a pre-requisite for this, although blind adherence to its ideologies (and those of politics) is perhaps the #1 source of fundies in the universe. Rigid, arrogant, "know-it-all-and-confidently-force-it-on-everyone-else" authoritarian strains of both amplify the propensity to fundyism, while more moderate, "this-seems-like-a-good-idea-but-might-be-wrong, so-let's-not-be-total-jackasses-about-it" varieties can keep it in check or even undermine it.

"No. Our 'Side' is rational conservatism. That automatically excludes crazies of any stripe. The Left is by definition, crazy."

While there's nutjobs on both sides, I think you should take a good hard look at that site you're posting on and then tell me that you don't have crazies on your side.

"Insanity; def: doing the same thing over and over, expecting a different outcome each time."

Isn't that how Republicans get elected?

"Vote Republican and we'll make abortion illegal!"

"Vote Republican and every school child will have a Bible and be taught Creationism!"

"Vote Republican and we'll protect you from the evil terrorists!"

The more astute will notice none of that's actually happened, yet they keep campaigning--and being elected--on those platforms, among other stupid shit such as trying to repeal the healthcare bill (though I hear they've decided that's not such a good thing to try to run on).

"Marxist, redistributionist, thugocracies have been tried many times down though history. They always fail for the same basic reasons. Modern Leftists keep trying to make it work again and again. Fail. QED: crazy. Therefore, not 'us'."

You realize that we don't actually have a "left" that's anywhere near that far left, right?

"Bomb throwing, killing, etc. is not a rational conservative response to a political issue."

No, of course not. You simply incite the more unstable elements of society to do it for you.

"Therefore, not 'us' even if they call themselves Christians, etc."

If they believe Jebus is their Savior, they're a Christian. No amount of claiming otherwise is going to matter, despite what actions they may have taken that make you look bad.

"So, there are NOT crazies on 'both sides'."

Sure there are. If you weren't one of them you could see that clearly.

I wish I could take credit for trolling Moonbattery. Truth is, I've never posted there. They get their own trolls, and I just post what they write when they get pissed. Hell, they don't even know I exist, and I'm pretty certain they've never even heard of FSTDT, just as a couple of years ago most people here had never heard of Moonbattery. I kind of wish they did know what we were doing though, their reaction would be priceless. Like loveshy.com or A Room of Our Own.

Goddammit, I hate hearing that "insanity" definition being tossed around. It's the dumbest shit I've ever heard. How many people out there could have possibly seen "28 Days"?

Actual definition of insanity: such unsoundness of mind or lack of understanding as prevents one from having the mental capacity required by law to enter into a particular relationship, status, or transaction or as removes one from criminal or civil responsibility.

"Insanity; def: doing the same thing over and over, expecting a different outcome each time."

You mean like touting an anti-abortion, pro tax-cut, pro-Christian, pro-rich, anti-health care, anti gay, exclusionist platform has worked so well for the Republicans lately?

"Bomb throwing, killing, etc. is not a rational conservative response to a political issue."

Unless it's against abortion clinics or doctors. Then it's a perfectly rational response to the "baby killers."

Republicans believe tax cuts will solve all our problems. If thats not insanity I don't know what is.

you do know that by denying that those crazies who happen to believe the same things you do, you're cutting out about half your supporters?

Also... you should really learn what it was that Marx said before trying to spout opinions of it. It makes you sound like an uneducated douche. ...rather than just a douche.

Now I understand why the Republicans were so opposed to health care reform. Most of their voters would end up in mental asylums...

Fun to play with, not to eat

If you don't believe there are any crazy people on your 'side,' then you are that crazy person.
