I don't know where else to put this.

Bill O'Reilly on Twitter: "Bernie wants a "political revolution" because capitalism is destroying the world."

Is he being ironic? Saying this is a bad thing? What?

One thing I've observed over the years is that a huge percentage of American citizens are absolutely convinced -- with a fervor and a lack of examination that can only be described as akin to religious fundamentalism -- that capitalism is unquestionable. To a huge number of Americans, suggesting that capitalism has any downsides will absolutely get you branded a "heretic."

I distinctly remember that when I was in elementary school, my teachers preached that "lesson" with every bit as much fervor as my Sunday School teachers preached that the Gospel is absolutely true and should never be questioned. Heck, our "civics" lessons were pretty much all about how to be a "good capitalist," as I recall. (I.e. "Don't question the system.")

Ironically, it seems to me, many of the people who are most adamant that capitalism is infallible are those who have been thoroughly victimized by the system.

Indeed, it’s fascinating running into the same exact logic and arguments I’ve heard defending christianity, only now defending capitalism. The one thing that remains constant is the authoritarianism. The concept that we can all be ranked on some sort of totem poll.

Combine with ‘the secret’ or the ‘law of attractions’ bullshit that is behind a lot of these prosperity ministries, and we’ve ended up with some weird secular-religious caste system where being rich means being given gifts when seen to be good by God or The Universe, and not being rich a sign you aren’t right in the eyes of God, pray and if God loves you, you will know it by getting money. In the past God cured diseases or spoke through burning bushes, now he only speaks through monetary gain and market capital increases.

Of course there’s no authority without an other to fight against, and socialism might as well be the devil.

Raunchy pun aside, DING DING DING. Contrast to the idea of one person, one vote, and wider, actually giving a shit about other people.

'This is a lynching, in every sense': Lindsey Graham says...

Quote:
As many other lawmakers condemned President Donald Trump's assertion that the impeachment inquiry against him amounted to a "lynching," Sen. Lindsey Graham defended the comment and told reporters Tuesday that he thought the president's assessment was "accurate."
Lindsey Graham introduced a resolution Thursday condemning the House’s impeachment inquiry of President Trump.

Quote:
And while 44 Senate Republicans immediately co-sponsored it, eight others very notably didn’t.

Reports indicated there was legitimate concern about jumping headlong into defending Trump with the evidence still mounting against him. And The Dispatch reported that the resolution actually had to be watered down to gain the support it did get
Fucking dillweed.

Also, apologies to all other dillweeds everywhere for comparing you all to this shitstain.

“Tulsi is a SENATOR, meaning she's in the SENATE and doesn't vote on HOUSE resolutions.” SOOPERgenius Ann Coulter on Twitter

(Narrator, voiced by Ron Howard: Tulsi was not a Senator, was not in the Senate, and did vote on House resolutions.)

It’s not just the fact that she’s wrong, and that it only takes a quick Google search to confirm this. It’s the breathtaking condescension and unwarranted confidence with which she makes this verifiably wrong statement.

The alleged, supposed chest pain that allegedly, supposedly sent Trump to the hospital was probably Step 1 of the liberal backup plan. As Jim Bakker tells us, the Dems will need to kill Trump if they can't impeach and imprison him.

Jim Bakker? Really? Christ. If you're looking for conclusive proof of atheism, look no further than the fact that this shitnozzle is still going strong, whereas Tammy Faye died a tortuous death of colon cancer.

Red states are exceptional stewards of the taxpayers' hard-earned money, and will only open the coffers to implement a truly brilliant idea.

There are rumours that one Walter White Ad Agency was responsible for this advertising campaign, but due to the uncertainty surrounding the attribution, it was omitted from reporting on the story as a matter of principle.



Seriously, though, it's worth including some images for this one; it's a doozy:





Taxpayers reportedly paid some $450,000 for this brilliant advertising campaign. I, too, find myself at a loss for words.
