Good morning, all. Well, the iso chamber is usually in use to keep the toxic Freeper sludge in, but we might be better off kicking them out and sealing ourself in. Meanwhile, the Freepers want to pull up the ladder and keep any sanity from getting in.
I do, however, find it amusing that the same Republicans who have been calling President Obama a “Dictator”, a “Tyrant”. etc – are now screaming for him to be one -Shutting down other countries’ flights, sealing up the border like Kim Jung Un.
Amusing, and predictable.
Anyway – don’t say I didn’t warn ya.

he political momentum for a travel ban on West African nations continued to swell Thursday, but health and transportation experts were uniform in saying it wouldn’t stem the spread of Ebola — and could do more harm than good.
That hasn’t stopped politicians and pundits — ranging from House Speaker John Boehner to former Obama press secretary Jay Carney — from calling for a travel ban. The appeal is obvious: It sounds like a no-brainer to build an infectious-disease moat around the U.S., blocking some flights and barring people who come from the countries suffering the worst Ebola outbreaks.
But the reality, the experts say, is that those kinds of measures have failed before. And this time, experts inside and outside the administration warned, throttling travel would hammer already devastated West African countries, make it difficult to send relief where it’s needed, and send an unknown number of infected travelers into the shadows, increasing the difficulty of knowing how many were entering the U.S.

To: MarinerWhat have we told people who have colds or the flu to do for the past hundred years or so?
“Work until you die, and if you miss any days we’ll fire you because “Right To Work”. Goddamn Democrats.
“Stay at home, get some rest, and come back to school/work when you are feeling better, i.e. you are asymptomatic.”
Still people pump themselves full of drugs, go to school/work and get other people sick.
How does a travel ban NOT make perfect sense with all of this past history to go by?
To: Marinerhealth and transportation experts were uniform in saying it wouldn’t stem the spread of Ebola — and could do more harm than good.And who the hell said their desires are more important than those of the American people?Its a longstanding progressive fantasy that a group of experts and academics make the decisions for us and it needs to stop.

The news that just came across my screen on Fox that incumbent Senator Pat Roberts has prevailed in his primary for reelection to the Senate from Kansas (or in his case from Arlington, Virginia) is heartbreaking.
The implications are dispiriting. His victory implies that in the American heartland the Republican Party cannot reform itself when confronted with an egregious example of elitism. If the Republican Party in Kansas (Kansas!) cannot reform itself there, how can it expect to prevail in purple states? How can we expect to carry a message to Reagan Democrats and Independents if The Tea Party cannot even convince Kansas farmers that their absentee senator of 36 years no longer remotely represents their interests in Washington?
If The Tea Party in Kansas cannot penetrate the consciousness of staunch conservatives where can it prevail? If the apparatus of the Republican machine in Kansas can prevail with a flat-out Rino whose very connection to the state is so patently fraudulent over a genuine grassroots conservative, a physician, how can the GOP establishment be reformed anywhere?
Before I give in to despair I will await the postmortems which will no doubt tell me that Pat Roberts flooded the zone with money, beat us on the airwaves, that our candidate was somehow flawed, that the challengers simply did not have the infrastructure and the ground game etc.
But I fear that even in these parlous times of malaise at home and failure everywhere abroad, the ideal constituency of The Tea Party was indifferent to the current state of affairs or was somehow behind the power curve and utterly ignorant of the facts of Pat Roberts residence and voting record. Somehow, the message in this case cannot be said to have been wrong, at best we can hope that the cause was a failure of execution. I doubt such a best case but I await the details.
Finally, this defeat for reform is alas not an isolated setback. We have seen that the Republican establishment apparatus is so powerful in Mississippi that it can set aside a decisive Tea Party victory in a primary by hijacking the runoff. We have seen what has happened in South Carolina, Kentucky and what will happen in Tennessee. I hope we get enough data out of these primaries to tell us what went wrong. With luck we will find that we simply do not have the infrastructure to prevail in an election on a statewide basis because a reform movement cannot hope to prevail once every six years with a top-down effort against a well entrenched, fully financed Republican establishment. No matter what the data tells me, however, I am discouraged by the tone deafness of Republicans everywhere.
I’m sorry. You and I am outnumbered. We know the good guys. We know the stakes. They know who is on TV the most, and how much steak they can eat before loosening their belts on their fat guts at the local Sizzler.The average person in Kansas is a goober moron Wal Mart shopping shlub. They are almost as part of the idiocracy as the polar bear hunters in the urban areas and the rest of the humanoids that are breeding and consuming and “Slouching towards Gomorrah” with great abandon.
This is what the GOP calls “outreach”.
It will take a natural or man made catastrophe and or a cult of personality strong enough to wake these fat flip flop wearers from their perpetual deep fried, trans fat, high fructose corn syrup food comas.
Eventually a Freeper gets around to the fact that the GOP is eating it’s own in the Purity Wars buffet:
To: Starstruck; fieldmarshaldj; Impy; sickoflibs; BlackElk; AuH2ORepublican>> Agree. RINO is a term that is being thrown around like the Race Card. If someone says they are Tea Party it is automatically assumed they are, even if there is no evidence to verify the fact. Roberts has been determined to be the 8th most conservative member of the Senate and stood with Cruz. In Kansas we have had our share of outright RINO’s but Roberts isn’t one. <<I’ve noticed “RINO” seems to be used on the right the way “racist” is thrown around on the left.According to some deranged leftists, you are a “racist” if you oppose a Democrat who happens to be black, regardless of how many other minorities you have strongly supported over the years, and even if you’re helping a black or hispanic candidate running against a white incumbent.According to some misguided people on the right, you are a “RINO” if you are not the anointed Tea Party candidate in the race, regardless of how much you’ve supported Ted Cruz and how conservative your record has proven to be over the years, and even if the self-proclaimed “Tea Party” candidate is to your left on the issues.
Freeper BillyBoy – RINO!!
OK – what else do we have in the back? Ah – In my “Sometimes You’re Too Stupid Even For Free Republic” series:

Oscar-winning actor and comedian Robin Williams has died at age 63, according to police in Marin County, Calif.
The full statement is below.
Most of the Freeper reactions were like this:

Do you ever read his word?
It’s never wrong if you read each message in complete.

“Anti-depressants usually cause one to do harm to others, not one’s self. (every mass shooter has been on them)”
I think you’re the one who needs anti-depressants. Everything you have said on his thread has been a real downer. Why don’t you go find some religion thread to inflict yourself on. Plus you are a bundle of misconceptions and generalizations.
Yes, I know, the truth is always a downer to you.
The people that need to hear the truth are here on this thread, and I would be remiss if I didn’t try to share the truth with them.
We don’t need more Robin Williams clones.
“The people that need to hear the truth are here on this thread, and I would be remiss if I didn’t try to share the truth with them.

We don’t know(need?) your cheap two bit moralizing baloney either.
To: editor-surveyorThe people that need to hear the truth are here on this thread, and I would be remiss if I didn’t try to share the truth with them.There is a time & place for everything. This is neither.
Don’t walk so heavily on the man’s grave just yet. Angels are still gathering, even if doctrine says he’s no candidate for heaven.
Let those who would be sad have a little sadness in the memories of so much laughter, which angels love, all the same.
Just shut the eff up. I dare you to spend a week in a mental ward. Tell them how they should give up medicine and embrace god. I suggest you tell the outreach pastors and priests that what they witness and acknowledge in these wards is wrong since you have it all figured out.
Take your own advice, and do it soon.
You are a destroyer!
Even if you are right, you are acting like a boor. Everyone who has read this thread already know exactly what you have to say, and now you are just repeating it over and over. I don’t know if you noticed in the midst of your zealotry, but an administrator already instructed you to get off this thread and you had probably better heed him.
