6/25    "I really didn't love America until I was deprived of her company."
          -John McCain
        http://www.jedreport.com/2008/06/damaging-mccain.html
        Fox edited this comment out of a transcript and never broadcast it.
        \_ This guy thinks it was edited out because it's too similar to
           Michelle Obama's comment?  Huh, I guess I don't see this similarity.
           Mrs. Obama's comment sounds kind of shallow and self-serving,
           McCain's seems more sincere.
           \_ How so? I think they both sound sincere.

6/25    So what term of imprisonment is out of proportion to child rape?
        \_ Eternity.  99 year sentence to be Bubba's toy would be about
           right.
           \_ Sounds good to me. -Lefty
              \_ Joking about prison rape pisses me off. Fuck you. Seriously.

6/25    I need to send a lot of junk snail mail to someone. What's the
        best way to do this? I used to go to the bookstore and sign up
        a bunch of magazine info sheets but this no longer works.
        \_ Ignoring your ill intention, why does that no longer work?
          \_ Well they seem to be a lot smarter. For example if you circle
           everything, they will just ignore your requests. Also if you
           circle too many unrelated topics within the magazine, they also
           don't send anything. So basically I'm getting rate limited.
           The other thing is most magazines today don't have those things
           anymore. They just rely on advertising their URLs.

6/25    I'm not a big clinton hater but why is Obama asking his supporters to
        help her pay off her campaign debt?  Her husband pulls in literally
        100s of millions a year from speaking fees, why don't they just pay it
        off themselves and move on?
        \_ Or why doesn't Obama pay Hillary to do some stops for him out of
           his massive not-publicly-funded warchest?
           \_ So do you not care that McCain signed up for public financing
              in order to get loans backed by that money back when he wasn't
              sure he'd win the primary but then when once he won he said
              oh wait, I'm going to back out of that public financing thing
              haha, wait did I legally agree to do public financing.  Well
              fuck that.  I'm not!
           \_ Well first of all that wouldn't be legal...
           \_ dunno.  I really don't think Hillary is funded by $$ concerns.
              \- First, the amount BCLINTON has access to is slightly
                 exaggerated. Let's say 10s of million. Second, to some
                 extent apparently helping with this kind of debt is to
                 some extent "standard practice". Third, particularly given
                 #2, it would probably have been "easier" to agree to it
                 than risk the lying and untrustoworthy Clinton people
                 making hay out of it (again, the inside story is the Obama
                 people are constantly worried about what the Clintons might
                 have up their sleave). Fourth, we'll see to what extent he's
                 just going through the motions. I agree Hillary has some
                 fucking gall to ask any body the exceptionally rich to do
                 this ... but there are some weird legal issues covering your
                 ability to raise funds for a campaign which is no longer
                 really in effect.
                 \_ Why don't you sign your name?
                    \_ The psb needs not sign his name.  --psb #3 fan

6/25    Justice Kennedy is a waste of skin.  His opinion today that child rape
        can never be punished by the death penalty is just more proof of that.
        The particular details of the case are heinous.
        http://preview.tinyurl.com/5v23a9
        \_ Nice troll you got there, come here often?
        \_ While I understand the desire to take the perp out back and shoot
           him (believe me, I'd load the gun), preferably after the son of a
           bitch is repeatedly raped by a rabid hyena, the death penalty is
           the ultimate punishment available to the state. In designing a
           system that recognizes that quality, we have to set standards
           appropriate to the severity of the punishment; life for life is
           one of the clearest criteria we can set for this. To make exceptions
           even in heinous, horrible, horrific cases like this is to invite
           instability. If we apply death penalty in this case, why not in
           the case of adult rape? Where do we then re-draw the line?
           Kennedy's opinions in this case reveal a streak of strict
           constitutionalism such as we would expect to see from so-called
           strict constitutionalists like Scalia.
                \_ Originalist
           \_ "Proportionality" has nothing to do with curel and unusual.
              You're making a legislative argument, not a judicial one.
              Besides, I thought you lefties hated "slippery slope" arguments. -op

           \_ At 9:18 a.m. on March 2, 1998, petitioner called 911 to report
              that his stepdaughter, referred to here as L. H., had been raped.
                He told the 911 operator that L. H. had been in the garage
              while he readied his son for school. Upon hearing loud screaming,
              petitioner said, he ran outside and found L. H. in the side yard.
              Two neighborhood boys, petitioner told the operator, had dragged
              L. H. from the garage to the yard, pushed her down, and raped
              her. Petitioner claimed he saw one of the boys riding away on a
              blue 10-speed bicycle.
                When police arrived at petitioner.s home between 9:20 and 9:30
              a.m., they found L. H. on her bed, wearing a T-shirt and wrapped
              in a bloody blanket. She was bleeding profusely from the vaginal
              area. Petitioner told police he had carried her from the yard to
              the bathtub and then to the bed. Consistent with this
              explanation, police found a thin line of blood drops in the
              garage on the way to the house and then up the stairs.  Once in
              the bedroom, petitioner had used a basin of water and a cloth to
              wipe blood from the victim. This later prevented medical
              personnel from collecting a reliable DNA sample.
                L. H. was transported to the Children.s Hospital. An expert in
              pediatric forensic medicine testified that L. H..s injuries were
              the most severe he had seen from a sexual assault in his four
              years of practice. A laceration to the left wall of the vagina
              had separated her cervix from the back of her vagina, causing her
              rectum to protrude into the vaginal structure. Her entire
              perineum was torn from the posterior fourchette to the anus. The
              injuries required emergency surgery.
              \_ See the part where I agree with you that the guy oughta be
                 shot, right after being raped by rabid hyenas. Still not a
                 basis for a legal system.
                 \_ See, the revenge raping isn't.  Execution is.
                    \_ How do you codify it? Where do you draw the line?
                       \_ That's what legisaltors do, not judges.  See, you
                          draw the line where legislators draw the line.
                          \_ Actually, the constitution did that, where it
                             talks about cruel and unusual punishment.
                             \_ Ah, so you're an idiot with circular reasoning.
                                Go stick your head in a pig.
                                \_ And you obviously have no opinion that you
                                   didn't get from Rush. Goodbye, dittohead.
                                   \_ Uh, I don't listen to Limbaugh.  You want
                                      to try again?
                                      \_ I should bother... why?

            Unfortunately you are further conditioning the public that the
            Republicans and the Democrats are different. They are the same and
            so you are only dividing the population, creating a false
            right/left paradigm. 100% of the things mentioned in the video
            concerning the Republican Party can be directly attributed to a
            Democrat Controlled Congress as well. For without the Democrat
            Controlled Congress, the bills would not have passed allowing the
            cheap Chinese plastic crap. Additionally, the Federal Government
            \_ Whatever. I want my tax raise now!!! Fuck y'all rich people.
            has no legal right under the Constitution to decide if a women can
            kill her baby or not. The states do have that right. Your
            knowledge of Government and the Constitution REALLY needs to
            improve before you make another video. If you are going to make
            videos such as this that warp or form the opinions of peoples
            minds, you should at least have the good form to be responsible
            for providing facts versus fiction.
            Your video screws good people like Ron Paul and Dennis Kucinich.
            Obama and McCain alike will bring us closer to an economic
            meltdown due to either grotesque socialist programs (Obama) and
            additional military spending / war spending (Obama and McCain).
            Both of the men are what are known as Collectivists. They have no
            respect for Liberty and they both believe that the small number of
            elite should tell you and I what is best for us. They believe that
            you and I are not worthy of making our own choices.
            Well, we continue to elect Democrats and Republicans and we get
            the same results. So what makes you think that voting for a
            Democrat this time will be any different.
