What does this have to do with Little Green Footballs?

I guess only Republican wrongdoing has anything to do with LGF. My bad.

From the Page title and this comment, it appears that you’re more interested in invoking a MBF, and possibly some personal axe you have to grind with Charles and the LGF readership than the actual article itself. There’s plenty of stories that have been reported here regarding people on the political left doing bad things, and who have rightly been criticized for their actions.

Especially during the past few years, however, it has been much easier to document - due to the obscene volume and frequency of them -the off-the-rails shenanigans from the far right who have effectively taken over the Republican Party.

re: #2 lostlakehiker

When I see wrongdoing I post it, I don’t care about the party affiliation. Making the title “little green footballs” is ridiculous, and so are you. If you don’t like it here, or if you’ve adopted that paranoid worldview so in vogue on the right maybe you ought to find someplace else.

Perhaps your point would have been pointier if any of us had ever heard of Michigan Supreme Court Justice Diane Hathaway. Sounds like just another “Party Immaterial” crooked politician.

Concerning LGF, I miss several of the saner RW ex-Lizards. They gave the joint ‘texture’. If you’re losing your shit, please do it quietly—it’s early Sunday and the coffee hasn’t kicked in.

Context.
See, the crazies and the crooks pretty much run your party. Not so much on the dem side. And at least the dems punish their members when they do bad. Look at the response of both parties with regards to Wiener and Vitter. Notice something? Yeah. Wiener is gone and Vitter isn’t, despite Vitter actually committing a crime.

So, good, this person is being investigated. I welcome it. It’s just that most of us never heard of her.

This has to be about the most stupid thread and post I’ve ever seen on LGF.

I still think that’s what happened to be honest. This looks like a complete fuck up when using the LGF bookmarklet and someone too “something” (embarrassed, cocky, afraid, etc) to fix it.

If this:

I guess only Republican wrongdoing has anything to do with LGF. My bad.

is really your problem, hiker, then it’s hard to imagine that this post would do ANYTHING to change your perceived problems.

How about you either go find someplace that posts articles in a left-right balance for which you’ve given your vital approval or learn how to add to the content stream here without pissing off the entire site and having your observations completely invalidated by your own stupidity.

The story is a perfectly good and newsworthy one. The presentation of it leaves something to be desired, unless it’s Passive-Aggressive Day and I missed the memo.

Fine, I’ll look up whether it is or not. It’s no trouble at all. It’s not like I was doing anything else. Don’t worry about doing it yourself. Save your energy for all the important things you’re doing.

Well, as an experiment, it certainly worked. Question: can anything negative about a democrat be posted here and escape virulent censure?

Answer? No. Not even if it’s just a pure factual post, with no editorializing whatever.

Factual observations about how affirmative action sometimes has counterproductive effects are also flamed.

The forum has become basically toxic. All the discussion is about how Republicans hate women, how Republican women hate women, etc. etc.

Democrats do not clean their own house. Look at how Barney Frank skated, twice. The second time for driving Fannie and Freddie into the ground by pushing them to write loans that could never be repaid. Look at how Jon Corzine skates after failing to segregate customer money from MF Global’s own money. Look back at how Hillary Clinton never was called to account for “Cattlegate”. Now, finally, long long overdue, Ray Nagin is in trouble. But Marion Barry can go to jail and then get reelected.

Phaugh.

You are now running the country. You are, in particular, running Illinois and California. By every objective measure, these states are particularly badly run. Their finances are a mess. Coming soon to the whole nation.

I cannot protect myself from bearing a share of the mess you’ll make. My only consolation is that neither can you. We will have that much in common: our suffering. But at this point, that is all we have in common. Goodbye.

re: #19 lostlakehiker

You were never interested in discussion or the “truth” about anything involving Democrats, you’re just into “woe is me” histrionics because hardly anyone fell for your broad-brush “Republicans may be bad, but Democrats are worse” bullshit, no matter how hard you tried to twist and distort facts.

You want facts, here’s one for you: I know that you posted this specifically to flounce, because it’s so transparent that you did a put-up job (and that you’ve been going in this direction for a while).

If you’re gonna be that way, kindly piss off and don’t let the door hit you in the ass on the way out.

Are you really ignoring that the way you presented it was obviously passive-aggressive?

I guess you are. You were on a martyr power-dive and you succeeded. Congrats.

re: #19 lostlakehiker

This self-pitying “play me off with the world’s smallest violin” post of yours is even more ironic given you’re one of the the only conservatives I’m aware of who accepts the reality of climate change. As long as republicans don’t, yes, not only are they worse than Democrats, but an existential threat to the long-term survival of human civilization. The only way this can possibly change is if enough conservatives still tethered to objective reality either refuse to vote, or vote for Democrats en masse, until the GOP gets the 1964-style humiliating loss that finally prods them to, yes, clean their own damn house.

And as Obdicut says above, no one objected to the content of your original post, just the cowardly, back-handed, and passive-aggressive way it was presented. You’d have to be willfully blind in the extreme not to see this fact.

You forgot to mention Texas, assclown, that without Federal dollars would not be able to balance its budget.

So, next question: Are you pretending to be retarded?

Horseshit.

Anthony Weiner, John Edwards and Jon Corzine have been trashed here; Congressmen Eric Wu, David Massa and Jesse Jackson, Jr. have all experienced less than true love here as well.

If by ‘flamed’, you mean ‘shown to be incorrect opinions based on racism’, then yeah.

re: #19 lostlakehiker

You’ve been here for a long time, starting in 2006; obviously, you couldn’t tolerate the fact that LGF became less conservative, so you eventually semi-flounced in a truly childish and idiotic way. Truth be told, you never had much to offer rhetorically or intellectually…your latest little experiment was a massive fail due to its simplicity and lack of sincerity. The real tell is that you offer no specifics of what the “mess” is, or why your side would be better at fixing it or even what their plan is.

I’m guessing you spend most of your time listening to Limbaugh, et al., since your biggest complaint was the Palin-esque talking point “Fannie and Freddie, OMG, destroyed the economy. It’s all Barney’s fault.” Oh, yeah, and CA doesn’t have a balanced budget. I’ll trade that problem for your party’s problem (being stuck in the middle of the previous century) any day. Unbalanced budgets can be fixed (see the late 90s on the federal level) a lot easier than political parties can crawl out of a reactionary hyper-religious aging and dwindling population base.

Four more years, boo hoo 4 u.

Looks like an example of what happens when you use the LGF Bookmarklet tool from the Pages dashboard.

Could be that here recently, that when you click on Create a Page, It autofills in the title with where ever you are (Main Page or LGF Pages) and then includes a link down in the text entry box for either the Main Page or LGF Pages. You then have to manually delete both and enter what you want.

Is this what happened in this post? I don’t know. But I do know that it is happening to me.

Oops, Sorry Charles. I sent you a report about this, but clicked the wrong button. (offensive content v recommend)

re: #19 lostlakehiker

Everything is in the eye of the beholder, I guess. You wanted to get a negative reaction, so you make the articule in question insulting. It is not wonder many people got offended, and now you would like to claim higher ground on how martyrized you are here.

Meh. If that’s makes you feel better, feel free to do so.

36 EPR-radar  Mon, Jan 21, 2013 5:46:30pm

re: #19 lostlakehiker

Irony abounds here —- a Republican referring to LGF (or to any forum) as toxic.

For the record, the GOP and its associated propaganda organizations (Fox News, talk radio) have systematically been working to make politics in the US toxic, with considerable success.

Furthermore, the GOP has steadily been sliding further and further into insanity, which is clearly one of the most pressing issues in present-day US politics.

Thus, many of the articles, pages and comments here relate to toxic crap whose ultimate source is the GOP, rather than the messengers that deliver the bad news here.

Now, I can understand that a Republican who is deluded enough to believe that the GOP retains sufficient vestiges of decency and sanity to be taken seriously as a legitimate party might be distressed by the tone and commentary here.

However, I’m not interested in coddling the hurt feelings of the deluded. If the harsh critics of the GOP are way off base about the party’s racism, misogyny, homophobia, contempt for the poor and working people etc., etc., etc., then it shouldn’t be too hard to make out an affirmative case for voting GOP.

Yes, I know this is a trick question. The Romney 2012 campaign also completely failed at this supposedly simple task.

Lamest. Flounce. Ever.

“I’m going to title my flounce post “Little Green Footballs” even though the content has nothing to do with LGF, then when people ask me why I titled the post “Little Green Footballs,” I’ll just pretend they were trying to censor my very important opinions!”

38 calochortus  Tue, Jan 22, 2013 8:26:23am

I wasn’t going to bother to post, but since this is still here, taunting me as it were, I need to point out that CA may well be on it’s way back to financial health. Housing starts are up, unemployment is down (although that is uneven across the state) and the budget may or may not turn out to be balanced-but it is far closer than it has been lately. The number one cause people give for leaving the state is the cost of living-much of which is because land is very expensive because despite whatever problems we have, so many people want to live here.

So, sure, feel free to bash CA if it makes you feel better. It really won’t affect my quality of life. But do try to keep up with actual facts. OK?
