(Completely Insane) Quote of the Day

"The American People are witnessing the greatest lie that is cleverly orchestrated by President Obama and his whole administration. President Obama feeds people poison, giving them the idea that they are entitled to take from the wealthier who have lived and worked in a democracy that understands that capitalism is the only truth that keeps a nation healthy ... (It's) a socialistic, Marxist teaching, and with it, he rapes this nation."

-- Sperm donor to Angelina Jolie and apparent prescription drug abuser Jon Voight, on Fox News this past weekend

You really have to appreciate the titanic testicle size it takes from all these obnoxious douche bags to actually try to tell the hard working people of this country how they should just take it up the ass and quite complaining.

I wonder if they recall how that line of thinking ended for Marie Antoinette

It isn't a matter of "brave." It's a matter of "dumb."

I'm generally not a fan of famous people opening their mouths without a script from a writer. But it's not any my bat-shit than any celebrity imitating politics from the left.

Nathan said...

Oddly enough, I can't work up any level of angst over anything Jon Voight might have to say. I guess it does, at least, move him firmly into "asswipe" designation.

Norm said...

haha I love how THIS of all his roles was the picture you chose. That's perfect. I read somewhere that Angelina Jolie is a republican as well and absolutely hates Obama? I can't remember the article. It was in E! Magazine...yep I read it.

Riles said...

But the Right discounts what he says, because he's a celebrity, right?

Hey Tony!

Very nice analogy, genius. In the short run, Marie certainly wasn't fond of the socialist policy implemented in France.

But you unintentionally make the economic point for those who oppose where Obama is taking us.

In the long run, France transitioned from a major superpower in the world to an afterthought that can't pay its' own bills because of the policies of those who whacked ole' Marie A.

Yeah, that is about right.

Mr. Voight, you tried to kill Jack Bauer and you've had an extended working relationship with Michael Bay. Those facts alone invalidate your assumed credibility in politics, as well as life. Therefore, I suggest you STFU and pray your dragged into Transformers 3 for yet another paycheck.

Why is it old white hippies who made their fortune playing to the counter-culture always grow up into "I don't wanna pay taxes" whiny bitchtards?

Over the past few months I've moved from being very middle of the road, very apolitical to left of center. Largely because while I don't always agree with the policies of the Obama administration, the vitriol and hate that is coming from the far right is absolutely repugnant to me. There is no such thing as a reasonable argument and the hyperbole is astounding.

There's no civility in our society anymore...whether it's in a crowded airport, rush hour traffic, or our political system.

Anon of 2:46,

Were you born on Jan. 20th of 2009?
Did you miss the waterfall of minute-by-minute, violent diatribes thrown at George Bush for 8 years?

This is politics.

Washington was by far not one of our deepest political thinkers; he was the pragmatic one who was stuck with implimenting the work of the dreamers. His warning that warning against the "baneful effects of the spirit of party" have gone unheeded.

This has been going on (from both sides) since 1792.

Ref said...

Nedame, sorry, but your equivalencies are not there. The violence and threats of violence from the right wingers screaming about an election they lost by much bigger margins than those in '00 and '04 are far beyond anything that came from the mainstream left for eight years. And don't bother bringing up and the Hitler piece.

Of course, we didn't get treated to a constant barrage of corporate-funded far left agitators being held forth as 'Real Americans" in the daily news for eight years of Bush, either

Nedame said...


You are arguing degrees or that the unquantifable amount is so much more.

I am telling you that not only is it not any more, nor any worse, but historic ally, this is nothing.

The equivalence is very much there.
