Today on Tommy T’s Obsession with the Freeperati – Master Debater edition

All righty, good people – Kibitzer said on last Monday’s obsession that he was going to cruise over to Freeperville to see how the site held up during the final Presedential debate – heh – as if Jim Rob and company were going to let a disastrous repeat (in the middle of a Freepathon, no less) of the near-total failure of the $352,000.00 / year website occur.

I find such cynical aspersions unfounded and completely ungrounded in reality, so let’s go see what improvements have been made!

From a “related” thread discussing the last R/O debate:

(Jim Robinson)

To: Yaelle

The system is not handling the increased loads and we do not know why yet. John says the system is not getting overloaded, the db is not overloaded, the cpus are mostly idle, the load averages are low, the db load averages are low, just reaches a point where throughput stalls. I’m not a techie and I have no idea how to fix it. I thought maybe we could add another server or more RAM or replace some older servers or something, but I guess John doesn’t think that will do it. There’s something wrong in the system software or the configuration but he’s having trouble finding it.

And I’m really upset too, but there’s not a freaking thing I can do about it until John gets it figured out.

Thanks.

Oh, that’s a whole ‘nother thread, that is.

I read he was going to drop it during the Republican Convention but he got cut with some others because the storm forced convention to delay by one day, so some got cut because of time restraints.

Odd & Sods: Hump Day Roundup Edition

the-who odds--sods

This post is not about hunchbacks, weed killing, or humping. Sorry to disappoint you. I haven’t written one of these omnibus posts in ages and just felt like doing so. I am an arbitrary and capricious motherfucker sometimes. I may even make it a habit on Wednesdays, butdon’t want it to become a vice, which would make this whole exercise eerily like the title of a Doobie Brothers album, What Were Once Vices Are Now Habits. I obviously spend way too much time researching old album covers…

Now that I’ve thoroughly confused you, on with the show this is it:

Shorter Bill-O: CDC honcho should resign because he won’t come on my stupid awesome teevee show. Doesn’t Dr. Frieden know that we live in a Bill-O centric universe and that everything revolves around him? Bow down to Bill-O and kiss his mystic butthole.

Downstairs Willard: Anyone else remember the character of Upstairs John on NYPD Blue? He’s got bupkis to do with this segment. It’s called a teaser in the trade. Feel free to call me a prick. Now where was I? Oh, yeah, this:

In an evolution from his stiff, buttoned-up demeanor that was often lampooned during his previous White House runs, Romney dished in the interview on his favorite television show, his grandchildren and even a leg massage.

On “Downton Abbey”: “I think the show was most enjoyable in the first season. Then when Matthew (Crawley) went off to war, it was a bit of a departure for a few seasons,” Romney said, straight-faced. “I actually like the downstairs part more than the upstairs part, even though I think Mary (Crawley) is an absolutely delightful character and I love watching her.”

I think Willard Mittbot Romney likes the downstairs part better for voyeuristic reasons. He enjoys seeing how  his inferiors (aka the 47%) lived in Woody Old England. Now that I think of it, he probably identifies with the stiff and pompous Mr. Bates except for the whole accused murderer thing. Willard would have outsourced that to Bangladesh.

It’s reassuring that the Mittbot still feels the need to prove that he’s a human being, gosh darn it. I wonder if he likes Upstairs Mary because she’s an arrogant and haughty hottie, which is probably how he sees Ann. It’s probably a good thing that Willard is a generation removed from seeking out Mary as a sister wife like dear old grandad might have. This is what comes from my binge watching Big Love this summer…

Today on Tommy T’s Obsession with the Freeperati – Great White Fail edition – Vol 2

Good morning, gentle people!

Well, Jude, Michael, Adrastos, Scout, Southern Beale, et.al. did yeoman’s work Sunday scrubbing the scorch-marks and Freeper cranial matter off the walls and ceiling – I thank you all.

OK – after the shock wears off a little, the Freeperati start the finger-pointing and wrong-conclusion-jumping we’ve been seeing everywhere, but only in Freeperville will you see them unleash their inner Joker.

And what’s with you nimrods leaving out God’s middle letter all the time? Does this automaticaly get you into Heaven or something? Or is it like not saying Voldemort’s name out loud, or only saying “Candyman” four times? Do you think that He’ll be so miffed by your typing “God” instead of “G-d” that he’ll manifest himself and smite you?

To: over3Owithabrain

I really hope people stop obsessively trying to discredit polls.
They aren’t gospel, but in the last two elections they have been fairly
accurate, and if anything, slightly republican leaning.

Go back and
check the RCP final poll average for the 2010 Senate races – 20 of 23
correctly senate seats picked correctly. Of the the 3 that were
incorrect, 2 dems won instead of the predicted republican, and the last
was Murkowski beating Miller in Alaska. And obviously, polls were better
than GOP cheerleaders this time as well.

The dumbest thing I hear around here is “no one polled me.”

WHY do they vote for ‘RATs? I don’t understand this…

We didn’t understand why Obama won in 2008. We thought maybe
people wanted to give him a chance, he would be historic first black,
post partisan and all that hopey stuff. Then they’d get over it.

Maybe he won because they really wanted a leftist.

Our only hope now is real economic collapse (on a catastrophic

scale)
that will be so devastating that it will bring about
a huge revolt against the Democrats.

Or it might even bring a military coup.

Surprise, surprise!

There’s just too much Freeper wail and fail for just one thread, so Ms. A has given me permission to do a two-parter, with the conclusion coming up Monday morning.

Without further ado, let’s get to the :

ELECTION DAY November 6, 2012 ***LIVE THREAD I***

FREE REPUBLIC!!!
| 11-6-12
| Free Republic

Posted on Tuesday, November 06, 2012 5:18:47 AM byRKBA Democrat

The polls are open on the east coast!!

From this morning’s election day prayer thread:

“Heavenly
Father may you forgive this nation and its people for the many awful
sins that we have commited against you. We do not deserve the wonderful
ways we have been blessed and please forgive us for our
indifference,neglect and complacency towards you. (snip)

May you smash every crooked deed

GOD SMASH!

as evil men and women try to hold
onto power
and may this be so convincing that everyone knows that your
hand is in this.

Kibitzer – could you please yank the power cord to the Irony Alarm? Thank yew.

Then we may bring the light of your Gospel to our
people who do not know you and to the nations of the world.

May
you block and undo every policy and piece of legislation they have
passed that is harmful to this nation.

God has veto power? Or just an unending and eternal filibuster?

May you make every policy they
make fail and may you turn the hearts of the multitudes against them.
May you thwart every evil deed they try to divide this nation with. May
you bring their own mischief upon them ten fold. May you punish those in
our government who are lawless traitors and enemies of the Constitution
by exposing themand deliver them into our hands for justice.

And this we humbly ask in Jesus name. AMEN!”

Today on Tommy T’s Obsession with the Freeperati – Poll Position edition

Well, its now one day until the Election, and the Poll threads have been exploding over at Freeperville.

I have my own prediction – I’m taking a week off posting, unless Schadenfreude dictates otherwise.

Let’s suit up and spin that airlock door, shall we?

In reverse order from oldest to newest –Galluping along!

Gallup Tracking: O-50/R-44

Gallup ^

| 9/26/12
| Gallup

Posted on Wednesday, September 26, 2012 12:12:45 PM bytatown

7 day tracking: O – 50/R-44

3 day tracking: O – 51% approve/43% – disapprove

I don’t know what to make of this. Up until about 4 days ago, Gallup
had the race tied. There was a sudden shift to Obama on either Sat or
Sun which showed up first in the approval number. I thought it was a one

They are doctoring these polls, to make it seem that Obama is more popular than he really is.

And, they want to demoralize Republicans by claiming the Romney campaign is imploding.

goodness. EVERY POLL shows Romney losing, the one guy left his

Accuracy as in they had Obama winning bigger than he did but they
were still accurate in that Obama won. I don’t really care if they’re
off a few points the fact is all these polls keep showing Obama ahead.
And how exactly with the price of gas, and food, and the cost of debt,
and the bad employment numbers along with the fact that NOBODY really
likes his Obamacare plan does this bastard get 50 to 51 percent job
approval. Romney is not running an effective campaign if this is the
case. Is he afraid to be tough?

This is a disaster.

Face it. We’re squabbling over a few points. Another Freeper made a
good point. With all the mess all over the world, Romney should be up by
5 at least. Gas and food at record highs. Our embassies being overrun.

Today on Tommy T’s Obsession with the Freeperati – Master Debater edition

All righty, good people – Kibitzer said on last Monday’s obsession that he was going to cruise over to Freeperville to see how the site held up during the final Presedential debate – heh – as if Jim Rob and company were going to let a disastrous repeat (in the middle of a Freepathon, no less) of the near-total failure of the$352,000.00 / year website occur.

I find such cynical aspersions unfounded and completely ungrounded in reality, so let’s go see what improvements have been made!

From a “related” thread discussing the last R/O debate:

(Jim Robinson)

To: Yaelle

The system is not handling the increased loads and we do not know why yet. John says the system is not getting overloaded, the db is not overloaded, the cpus are mostly idle, the load averages are low, the db load averages are low, just reaches a point where throughput stalls. I’m not a techie and I have no idea how to fix it. I thought maybe we could add another server or more RAM or replace some older servers or something, but I guess John doesn’t think that will do it. There’s something wrong in the system software or the configuration but he’s having trouble finding it.

And I’m really upset too, but there’s not a freaking thing I can do about it until John gets it figured out.

Thanks.

been completely unusable to perhaps thousands and thousands of others
during either the first Presidential or Vice-Presidential debate and for
an hour or so after their respective conclusions?

This has never
happened in previous election cycles during debates, election night
results or during large breaking news events. Slow? Yes. Unusable, no.

I’ve
had multiple tabs opened for the debates this year and the FR one just
wheel spin, wheel spin, wheel spin… blank page, no progress bar moving

Dinesh D’Souza resigned as president of The King’s College after a
magazine story revealed that he was engaged to another woman while still
married to his wife of 20 years. The Board of Trustees of The King’s
College, a Christian institution based in New York, accepted his
resignation Thursday.

I think Christian conservative leaders do more harm to

Forget Obama, Dinesh was one of the leading Christian apologists in
the country defending Christianity(anywhere, anytime), as well as
objective morality, and now he is just another hypocrite who got caught
with his pants down and has not only humiliated himself but has made
Christian conservatism a national laughingstock, again.

An honorable man doesn’t make it his business to point out the moral
shortcomings of others while banging some woman who was nine years old
when said man married his current wife
. It’s also pretty clear he didn’t
just resign – he was no doubt told to, lest the college rightfully
pressure him to return the 7 figure salary he collected while spending
his time attending to his own personal business rather than the
school’s. Not only is he an adulterer, his love interest is one as well,
and she’s been married all of 10 months.
The man disgusts me – just
another charlatan fleecing the flock while completely ignoring the

I completely agree. This is ridiculous! I know it’s not politically
correct to say this around here, but at what point does the equipment
for this site get upgraded, or replaced?

I’ve already purposed that I won’t even waste my time coming here for the next presidential debate.

Being an IT professional, I would suggest that he run it in the
cloud, that way it scales, is reliable, and it can add servers
dynamically…I do this all the time for customers who have much bigger

Being an IT professional myself, I would suggest that cloud computing is just another crappy business model designed to squeeze more money out of you for the same service, with the added benefit of less security and a round-robin of finger-pointing when the shit breaks down.
Just buy another fucking hampster and be done with it.

Today on Tommy T’s Obsession with the Freeperati – Great White Fail edition – Vol 1

Surprise, surprise!

There’s just too much Freeper wail and fail for just one thread, so Ms. A has given me permission to do a two-parter, with the conclusion coming up Monday morning.

Without further ado, let’s get to the :

ELECTION DAY November 6, 2012 ***LIVE THREAD I***

FREE REPUBLIC!!!
| 11-6-12
| Free Republic

Posted on Tuesday, November 06, 2012 5:18:47 AM by RKBA Democrat

The polls are open on the east coast!!

From this morning’s election day prayer thread:

“Heavenly
Father may you forgive this nation and its people for the many awful
sins that we have commited against you. We do not deserve the wonderful
ways we have been blessed and please forgive us for our
indifference,neglect and complacency towards you. (snip)

May you smash every crooked deed

GOD SMASH!

as evil men and women try to hold
onto power
and may this be so convincing that everyone knows that your
hand is in this.

Kibitzer – could you please yank the power cord to the Irony Alarm? Thank yew.

Then we may bring the light of your Gospel to our
people who do not know you and to the nations of the world.

May
you block and undo every policy and piece of legislation they have
passed that is harmful to this nation.

God has veto power? Or just an unending and eternal filibuster?

May you make every policy they
make fail and may you turn the hearts of the multitudes against them.
May you thwart every evil deed they try to divide this nation with. May
you bring their own mischief upon them ten fold. May you punish those in
our government who are lawless traitors and enemies of the Constitution
by exposing them and deliver them into our hands for justice.

And this we humbly ask in Jesus name. AMEN!”

Pay Attention, Please

Okay, Newsweek? Y’all are doing it wrong. Michael Tomasky, you are doing it wrong. This, right here, is doing it wrong:

Mitt-romney-newsweek-465x620

Okay, look, I get the whole “we’re trying to create a buzz” thing. I get that when you put President Obama on the cover with a rainbow halo and call him our “first gay president” or choose the photo of Michele Bachmann where her eyes look super-crazy you’re doing it for the shock value. Just likeTime put the lady with the titty-sucking 12 year old or whatever he was on the cover. Let’s “start a conversation,” let’s be “controversial,” let’s “go viral.” Yeah I get it, y’all are desperate for the links and the Tweets and the Face-space hoo-hah and all that but Jeebus on a fucking Saltine get your damn meme right when you pull this stupid crap.

Look, no one and I meanno one thinks Romney is a wimp. The meme, the fear, the slam, the 411 on Romney is that he is abully. Not a wimp. A fucking bully who led a gang of miscreants toforcibly cut the hair of a fellow student, who used todress up as a police officer and pull people over just for shits and giggles. Someonedescribed as “soulless.” A craven opportunist who will say and do anything to get elected because, as we are constantly reminded, it’s “his turn.”

Where did this “wimp” crap come from? This tells me you guys aren’t even paying attention to the kabuki discourse in which you hope to triumph. You get a -2 from the Tennessee judge in the Media Depravity competition.

That is all.

Today on Tommy T’s Obsession with the Freeperati – Poll Position edition

Well, its now one day until the Election, and the Poll threads have been exploding over at Freeperville.

I have my own prediction – I’m taking a week off posting, unless Schadenfreude dictates otherwise.

Let’s suit up and spin that airlock door, shall we?

In reverse order from oldest to newest –Galluping along!

Gallup Tracking: O-50/R-44

Gallup ^

| 9/26/12
| Gallup

Posted on Wednesday, September 26, 2012 12:12:45 PM by tatown

7 day tracking: O – 50/R-44

3 day tracking: O – 51% approve/43% – disapprove

I don’t know what to make of this. Up until about 4 days ago, Gallup
had the race tied. There was a sudden shift to Obama on either Sat or
Sun which showed up first in the approval number. I thought it was a one
day good sample for Obama but that day rolled off the three day rolling
approval tracker today and his approval number actually went up…?

goodness. EVERY POLL shows Romney losing, the one guy left his

Accuracy as in they had Obama winning bigger than he did but they
were still accurate in that Obama won. I don’t really care if they’re
off a few points the fact is all these polls keep showing Obama ahead.
And how exactly with the price of gas, and food, and the cost of debt,
and the bad employment numbers along with the fact that NOBODY really
likes his Obamacare plan does this bastard get 50 to 51 percent job
approval. Romney is not running an effective campaign if this is the
case. Is he afraid to be tough?

This is a disaster.

the country showed the President up by anywhere from 5 to 15 points, and
yet Romney wins by 8??? The case for Republican voter fraud couldn’t be
more obvious…disenfranchisement of Democrat voters at record
levels…”

You can see it coming…an obvious set-up.

insisting the polls were wrong.
The similarities are annoying to say the

Face it. We’re squabbling over a few points. Another Freeper made a
good point. With all the mess all over the world, Romney should be up by
5 at least. Gas and food at record highs. Our embassies being overrun.
An American ambassador was KILLED for god’s sake. This race should be
over. Shame on Romney for such as sorry ass campaign.
