##  Ken

Is there any possibility of us being able to help him in any way? Now it's...arghhh, there's no way to describe it. Just help him. EddyP (talk) 21:51, 7 May 2010 (UTC)

It is sort of painful to watch. Sort of like one of those particularly cringeworthy episodes of The Office (mostly the British one). Will Andy respond to Ken childish pleas? I'm guessing he won't. DickTurpis (talk) 21:55, 7 May 2010 (UTC)
Nah, he'll keep ignoring Ken. Which is a pity, I'd love to see "Richard Dawkins is a Clown: The Musical", performed by the Schlafly Homeschoolers and produced by Ken DeMyer. It'd probably top Springtime for Hitler. Röstigraben (talk) 22:59, 7 May 2010 (UTC)
I think they'd have a hard time topping Conservapedia: The musical. Clearly, RW is best of the public when it comes to musical theatre. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 23:07, 7 May 2010 (UTC)
I think even if we ignored Ken he'd still keep it up. Remember, this isn't just about us, the whole internet hangs in the balance of Ken's Google rankings. Tetronian you're clueless 23:47, 7 May 2010 (UTC)
Right, so how long until TK, who may be an idiot but at least realizes that having an autistic manchild wallpapering all of CP with his asinine ramblings does the project no good, memory holes the entire thing? If CP does want to be taken seriously they cannot allow such obvious childishness to be so apparent. At least Andy pretends he has some scientific basis for his stupidity. I'm sure even he cannot see Ken's latest obsession as anything but a liability. DickTurpis (talk) 00:12, 8 May 2010 (UTC)
Looks like Ken wants CP to be the number one hit on a search engine beginning with Q for "Dawkins is a clown". ħuman 00:19, 8 May 2010 (UTC)
Andy may have an ego the size of Russia and maintains a proliferation of crazy beliefs but even he probably realizes Ken is going off the deep end of the kiddie pool. --BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 00:23, 8 May 2010 (UTC)
Ah, but you forget. It's forbidden to acknowledge that Kendoll is anything other than 100% sane, because then Andy's "0 in mental health problems" stuff will have been a lie. Such liberal qualities as deceit are not in Andy's conserva-nature, therefore Ken must be totally on track with his obsessive screeds about Dawkins, atheists, homosexuals, etc. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 00:33, 8 May 2010 (UTC)
And in Andyland is TK's (inane) assertion that site owners are responsible for all content supportable? Nutty Roux (talk) 00:39, 8 May 2010 (UTC)
Well, surely not "all content", but replying to a user suffering from, obviously, "something" on his talk page matters. ħuman 02:11, 8 May 2010 (UTC)
@Dick #1 Ken would be Gareth, right?
@Dick #2 You seem to misunderstand TK's intentions. He doesn't give a toss about whether Ken's inanity does the CP project any good. TK is there solely for his own perverse pleasure not to make CP a valid Christian conservative alternative to Wikipedia.  Lily Inspirate me. 07:30, 8 May 2010 (UTC)

oh please, oh please, oh please, let them do Richard "Pagliacci" Dawkins, the opera. tmtoulouse 07:25, 8 May 2010 (UTC)

This is the greatest stuff I've seen from Ken in a long time, it's not only idiotic, it's embarassing. I would like to see Andy's facepalm when reading that - even he must think it's a completely retarded suggestion. Etc 10:10, 8 May 2010 (UTC)
I'm beginning to feel genuinely bad for Ken. He's either the world's greatest parodist or a sexually repressed, fanatic insomniac. SJ Debaser 10:50, 8 May 2010 (UTC)
It's beyond the point where he can mock him, he's clearly unhinged. Webbtje (talk) 21:02, 8 May 2010 (UTC)
"autistic manchild" - Dick, you're not a Chris-Chan observer are you? 86.142.136.181 (talk) 00:15, 9 May 2010 (UTC)
Zap to the extreme! Barikada (talk) 01:24, 9 May 2010 (UTC)

##  The final purge begins - Not WIGO worthy but hilarious

I was wondering how long it would take them to make me an "Unperson", the various star articles I have written over time are now being deleted by DouglasA as creations of a "Troublemaker/Troll/Liar: Vandal-siter, untrustworthy".[2], [3], [4], [5] Oddly enough I never interacted with DouglasA while there, so talk about a weird vendetta. More likely he believes they are "fake" based on their names, not realizing they are legitimate articles about legitimate star systems, yet again this is Conservapedia, so it may really be entirely petty. --BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 01:17, 8 May 2010 (UTC)

Now they are all back, someone there is reading RW. --BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 01:26, 8 May 2010 (UTC)
It's not personal, dude. JacobB, DouglasA, and TK are only trying to make their mark. In a cesspit in the backwaters of the internet. Nutty Roux (talk) 01:41, 8 May 2010 (UTC)
No no no, Dougie is playing out his endgame by removing as much sensible and scientific stuff as he can. Unfortunately, whilst Terry Koeckritz IS a total prick, he is not as stupid as the rest of them, and has therefore restored your articles because he knows what Dougie is up to. As an aside, I owe you an apology/you need to thank medelete as applicable for it was I that initiated thisimg that lead to them questioning any hint of a more than 6000 year old universe and thus lead to your banishment/not wasting your time writing scientific stuff for a bunch of moronsas before and finding your true calling here at RW. DeltaStarSenior SysopSpeciationspeed! 02:05, 8 May 2010 (UTC)
You were TrondE? Oh man, I remember how utterly annoyed I was too bout that whole situation, thinking "G'Dammit, I knew the creationist nutjobs would complain", LOL. That lead to the attempted compromise between JacobB and I over posting both YEC points of view and "Old Earth"/Secular points of view for articles. Should have known that wouldn't last. --BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 03:56, 8 May 2010 (UTC)
If there was a trustworthy astronomy guy about, s/he would add some true data to all CP's astronomy articles, ie "Age: <6000 years. Size: <6000 lightyears" etc. DeltaStarSenior SysopSpeciationspeed! 02:09, 8 May 2010 (UTC)
I will never forget the insanity over the fiasco about having distances over 6,000 light years in that Andromeda article. I remember JacobB and another lacky systematically going back through every article I wrote removing any distance over 6,000 light years after I left. --BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 04:02, 8 May 2010 (UTC)

Yes, there seems to be a war going on among TK (the top dog) and JacobB+DouglasA (the upstarts that want to assert their new-found authority.) It's fun to watch, in a sick sort of way. The recent stuff about [6] was another case of this. TK needs to show that he holds all the power.

And, of course, TK, having an account here, can't allow something to be deleted for being the work of a "vandal site member" unless it's deleted by himself.

It's truly the endgame. Gauss (talk) 02:12, 8 May 2010 (UTC)

Oooh! We just got another salvoimg from Jacob. Something about removing "anti-creation material".
And another oneimg! Gauss (talk) 02:26, 8 May 2010 (UTC)
How is Hubble proving there are galaxies beyond the Milky Way "anti-Creationist material"??? --BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 03:58, 8 May 2010 (UTC)
You're not asking the right question, likely because you're incorrectly assuming there's a good faith reason for JacobB to have done what he did. I hope I've helped. Nutty Roux (talk) 17:23, 8 May 2010 (UTC)
And reverted by TKimg. It's on! Gauss (talk) 02:47, 8 May 2010 (UTC)
Oversight wars! JacobB oversightsimg TK's reversion. I believe the last administrator to defy TK this directly was JessicaT. Gauss (talk) 03:05, 8 May 2010 (UTC)
And JacobB takes his frustration out on an innocent bystanderimg. Maybe all this is becoming WIGO-worthy after all. Gauss (talk) 03:08, 8 May 2010 (UTC)
Innocent bystander? That's DeltaStar, who said he was that guy about a paragraph above. 03:11, 8 May 2010 (UTC)

One more thing: BMcP, did you know that Wikiversity very much needs astronomy articles? here and/or here. Gauss (talk) 02:17, 8 May 2010 (UTC)

Wikiversity any good? --BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 04:03, 8 May 2010 (UTC)
Ed Poor thinks so.  Lily Inspirate me. 09:11, 8 May 2010 (UTC)
Oh, is that back when Ed was claiming to be a music teacher? --Kels (talk) 14:24, 8 May 2010 (UTC)
Yup! BTW he hasn't edited there since (28 August 2008). 14:40, 8 May 2010 (UTC)
BMcP, Wikiversity is way better than conservapedia, if that answers your question. --Opcn (talk) 02:48, 9 May 2010 (UTC)
Fucking precious that the dope is asking if he should apply for admin. He's SO much better suited to an echo chamber. Nutty Roux (talk) 03:42, 9 May 2010 (UTC)

##  Ken and Bert

Ken to Bert: If you want more web traffic to your Korean Airlines Flight 007 article, create a very good Korean Air article.

Or perhaps: Korean Airlines Flight 007 and Dawkins, Korean Airlines Flight 007 and Atheism, Hitler piloting Korean Airlines Flight 007...

larronsicut fur in nocte 09:50, 8 May 2010 (UTC)

Dare I suggest Korean Airlines Flight 007: The Musical?  Lily Inspirate me. 10:12, 8 May 2010 (UTC)
You forgot the obvious Homosexuality and Korean Airlines Flight 007 (Ken's obsession gets first billing, natch), and Could James Bond have Saved Korean Airlines Flight 007?. ħuman 01:58, 9 May 2010 (UTC)

##  Abortion agus Hitler, tá sé go maith

Thrilling to see this superb articleimg get Hitlerised. Pure genius. DogPMarmite Patrol 17:45, 8 May 2010 (UTC)

That was added by MaryAJ, whose only edits are on that very article. Clear parody. TK? Chop chop, that known vandal site member isn't going to ban itself now is it. 82.34.246.39 (talk) 20:13, 8 May 2010 (UTC)
"Abortion in Ireland consists of no reported cases." "But several thousand residents of Ireland travel each year to other countries..." Come on chaps, this is almost butchery. Webbtje (talk) 21:00, 8 May 2010 (UTC)
Don't we have a policy of not revealing obvious parody? Why not just sign up to CP and revert it yourself, save TK the hassle of having to read it here and remove it. DeltaStarSenior SysopSpeciationspeed! 14:22, 9 May 2010 (UTC)

##  Problem Solving

Having trouble?

This struck me as particulalry funny....Acei9 02:57, 9 May 2010 (UTC)

And the problem is whether to buy toilet paper or just save McDonald's napkins? Nutty Roux (talk) 03:43, 9 May 2010 (UTC)
Nutty, you fucker. Call me immediately. Acei9 06:30, 9 May 2010 (UTC)
Skype, you bastids. ħuman 07:20, 9 May 2010 (UTC)

##  Rob's spilling over

Has he taken a page from Ken's playbook, or why is he creating dozens of articles related to the oil spill (all redirects to the original article)? This obsession stirs up some disturbing images. Röstigraben (talk) 18:37, 9 May 2010 (UTC)

As one might expect, the article itself is also a complete fail. It doesn't at any point explain what happened, why, how and what is being done. It simply jumps straight into blame and goes from there. Anyone reading the article without foreknowledge would be completely bemused as exactly what the problem was. Worm(t | c) 18:56, 9 May 2010 (UTC)
Typical of Rob to have jumped on the racist and foreigner-bashing bandwagon. I've noticed several people on US TV doing the same thing, they explicitly blame the spill on British Petroleum when the company has been known as just BP since 2000 after their merger with Amoco (btw that's American Oil Company).  Lily Inspirate me. 19:21, 9 May 2010 (UTC)
What I like is how the Obama Reaction section is devoted entirely to smearing Obama, without a single word on his actual reaction to anything. --Kels (talk) 19:42, 9 May 2010 (UTC)
Likewise the lead. The only "sections" with more than one sentence are completely devoted to Obama-bashing. Drill, baby, drill! ħuman 20:37, 9 May 2010 (UTC)
Don't you idiots understand anything? Obama supported the investigation of new off shore drilling, and then began moving forward on starting new lines in complete abandonment of the desires of his liberal base. Despite the fact that Obama didn't actually open any new areas to drilling (to my knowledge) and completely ignoring the fact that conservatives want to drill everywhere they can for oil, including my toilet, this is obviously Obama's fault because he's a dirty, foreign born, secret Muslim Sociofacistcommuinist dictator. QED. SirChuckBCall the FBI 21:15, 9 May 2010 (UTC)
My favourite is the "Oil disastar" redirect. Screw all the other oil disasters... sorry, disastars, this one we can blame on Obama! Vulpius (talk) 22:12, 9 May 2010 (UTC)

Holy shit. Rob's deceit reaches entirely new levels. "Paul Krugman said the spill is Obama's fault". Read the article, shitforbrains. He says just the opposite. Rob, you are a fucking retard. DickTurpis (talk) 21:24, 9 May 2010 (UTC)

Wow, I didn't even realize that.... It's an easy mistake to make you know... I mean, the title of the article is "The Oil Spill is Obama's Fault." Just because the first line is "No, I haven’t lost my mind — that’s not what I believe. But you know that’s what the talk-show hosts will be saying soon, if they haven’t already started. The only question is what the story will be." What an idiot. SirChuckBThis country needs more Rutabegas 21:45, 9 May 2010 (UTC)
What? He's using a Greenpeace report as a reference? Those commie hippies getting in the way of capitalism? 62.56.65.189 (talk) 22:01, 9 May 2010 (UTC)
I'm a bit surprised he's concerned with the animals at all. After all, kindness to animals is something Hitler would do. --Kels (talk) 22:10, 9 May 2010 (UTC)
Maybe Rob can only read the title: short words, big letters... "Peter says, it's all Obama's fault and Jane says, it's all Obama's fault and Pat the dog says, it's all Obama's fault. Look Jane, see the oil spill. Look Peter, see the oil spill and see the crooked commie what done it. Yes Pat, bite the commie liberal." (Showing my age there...) The Real James Brown (talk) 22:53, 9 May 2010 (UTC)
I ain't a kid (chronologically, at least), and I've never even seen a Dick and Jane book. I did read a lot of old B.C. cartoons making fun of them, though. --Kels (talk) 23:17, 9 May 2010 (UTC)
Well, I'm 34 and grew up with the British equivalent, the Peter and Jane Books. Doubt they were any better, although they did allow me to enjoy Comic Book Guy's T-shirt in the Simpsons.
C:DOS

Most amusing.-- Jabba de Chops 23:25, 9 May 2010 (UTC)
Love the T-shirt slogan. One of my kids, who has some educational issues, is finally learning to read with Peter and Jane. There's life in the old (Pat the) dog yet.
On a different point, well done the person who compiled the WIGO with (1) all the times those CP gits cursed Obama for not drilling faster and (2) their stinking hypocrisy after the spill happened. Is this the level of poisonous stupidity to which American politics has sunk? It makes our lot seem reasonable and intelligent, even Mr Brown. The Real James Brown (talk) 23:54, 9 May 2010 (UTC)

##  "Compare us to liberal fairytales"

(Dunno if this has been posted before, I haven't been around this week...)

Just took a look at Conservapedia's JPatt's Twitter feed and found this gem:

 “”Encyc Britannica LIBERAL. Wikipedia LIBERAL. www.Conservapedia.com CONSERVATIVE Compare us to liberal fairytales http://goo.gl/Y7v8 #sgp

And in case that shortener goes down, it's this article. It's really beyond me how CP sysops can take such an article and hold it up as a sort of "See how awesome we are?" poster. --Sid (talk) 12:15, 9 May 2010 (UTC)

They lack deeper reading comprehension. A person without a highly developed sense of irony would read what appears on the surface to be merely comparing a few paragraphs of text. JPatt is this kind of person. - π 12:28, 9 May 2010 (UTC)
Something I just noticed about the Obama article: it claims Obama's birth name is Soetoro. Am I missing something or did Obama's mother not even meet her future husband, Lolo Soetoro, until her son was several years old already? I mean, really guys, put "AKA" if you must, but don't pretend at birth he was named after a guy her mother wouldn't even meet for years to come. DickTurpis (talk) 14:01, 9 May 2010 (UTC)
The editor probably meant to write "official name," a bit of birther lingo. Incidentally, it's worth checking out the three sources that appear next to his name on the CP article. One of them has nothing to do with Obama's last name and is therefore utterly irrelevant, while the other two are bugfuck insane, even by birther standards. Colonel of Squirrels白山羊不山羊。商讨。 18:12, 9 May 2010 (UTC)
Little Johnny Boy must gone to the same reading school as Andy. How he can interpret "one might discover for oneself how information can be slanted, for reading and writing, as this self-instructional guide reveals." as anything other than a swipe at CP defeats me. Still, I'm sure his 2000-odd (or is that merely 'strange') followers will be glad to learn how bad CO is. Are we sure he's not a parodist, when he does stuff like this? --PsyGremlinRunāt! 09:31, 10 May 2010 (UTC)

I lolled at * Nick Clegg and TBA. I thought that was clever. Senator Harrison (talk) 19:35, 10 May 2010 (UTC)
Nice work Ken! I love your projects! I am particularly looking forward to * Nick Clegg and Socialist Nationalist Communism. DeltaStarSenior SysopSpeciationspeed! 20:11, 10 May 2010 (UTC)
So you're telling us we should be expecting developments in regard to upcoming developments from certain YouTube creators in regards to Nick Clegg and Nick Clegg's clown-like activities on Conservpedia and in regard to the internet? That's nice. DogPMarmite Patrol 20:14, 10 May 2010 (UTC)
Props to Kendoll for bothering to think all that up and redlink. SJ Debaser 20:21, 10 May 2010 (UTC)
Gentleken, I agree with your project, but you might want to rethink that "Waterloo" analogy. Clegg's a Brit, you know. Röstigraben (talk) 20:36, 10 May 2010 (UTC)

They create empty redlinked articles - not ideal. DogPMarmite Patrol 21:09, 10 May 2010 (UTC)
Why is that not ideal? I didn't understand the issue with redlinks for the Ken DeMyer Project and I still don't understand now. Is there a page or category of redlink articles somewhere that gets cluttered? That's the only problem I can see. Keegscee (talk) 21:24, 10 May 2010 (UTC)
Why yes, there is. --Kels (talk) 21:28, 10 May 2010 (UTC)
What's the problem then? (I'm not having a go, I just don't understand what the issue is - CP doesn't seem to have a problem with them) DeltaStarSenior SysopSpeciationspeed! 21:41, 10 May 2010 (UTC)
That is because CP want such articles. We do not. Cubic educated Hoover! 21:45, 10 May 2010 (UTC)
We try to keep our Wanted Pages limited to pages we want, ie, topics that could be on-mission. An encyclopedia, whether real or pretend, will essentially want to cover everything. We've had some silly times where helpful people created pages we don't need because they were listed as "wanted" due to overzealous linking. ħuman 00:46, 11 May 2010 (UTC)

##  More Ken

Ken, having been met with deafening silence when he approached Andy over the Dawkins Is A Clown contest, is going at it again, apparently unaware that even Andy has no interest in his insane ramblings. My favorite bit is how he has identified the 5 major liberal issues: abortion, evolution, gun control, economics, and, of course, Richard Dawkins. I believe the Democratic Party in this country is in the process of changing their name to The Dawkins Party. Are they not? DickTurpis (talk) 13:32, 9 May 2010 (UTC)

Y'know, I consider myself a fairly raging liberal, and most of the time I don't give a damn about richard dawkins. The most I hear from him is from Ken himself. Maybe Ken is a closet Dawkins, like, Richard Dawkins has a split personality, and the other one is Ken. Or, like, Dawkins is Two-Face, from Batman? And for every decision he flips a coin. If it comes up shiny head, he goes off and writes about atheism and evolution in a positive light, and if it comes up scratchy head he logs into conservapedia and becomes Ken. X Stickman (talk) 14:22, 9 May 2010 (UTC)
Exactly. Of all the issues/things I care about in the world, Richard Dawkins isn't even on the radar. He may even be to atheism what PETA is to animal rights: a extremist who gives the entire group a bad name (I honestly don't know enough about him to know if this is true, but it seems close to the mark at times). I don't know why Ken seems to think Dawkins is the personification of atheism, and that somehow anything that hurts Dawkins disproves atheism. "Richard Dawkins didn't give much money to charity, therefore God exists" is not exactly logically sound, Ken. DickTurpis (talk) 14:31, 9 May 2010 (UTC)
To put some actual thought into it (as in, more thought than my batman based theories above), there's a fairly common train of thought that runs in the more hardline religious world with regards to atheism. Many of them see atheism as another belief system that is comparable to religion, which means we need our own priests and our own popes and leaders and such. It's why you see Dawkins and PZ Myers (Dawkins especially, though) accused of leading atheists or whatever, rather than just being prominent atheists. I'm sure Andy himself has said something along those lines (I can't remember the exact wording but I'm sure I remember a rant from him about how liberals won't go against the word of dawkins because we all idolise him the same way catholics idolise the pope, or something). Ken seems to be the worse, though. Andy and the others may mention it in passing, but Ken seems to honestly believe that Dawkins is the lynchpin of the entire atheist movement, and if we all just realised that he's a clown, we'd become good christians. Why? He's Ken, I guess. He needs help. X Stickman (talk) 15:11, 9 May 2010 (UTC)
Dawkins is important in the New Atheism movement, especially as a spokesperson, and one of the people at the center of the whole Atheism-Theism debate. I suspect that Ken, who is obviously on the theism side, fancies himself as Dawkins natural rival and dreams of being just as much of a high profile figure, a Theist-creationist counterpart if you will. Sadly it is all delusions of grandeur. --BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 15:14, 9 May 2010 (UTC)
The intertwining of liberalism with atheism is a fallacy in itself. Undoubtedly given the literal interpretation of the Christian Bible, biblical literalist Christians would identify with modern day conservatism, given the Bible's instructions on certain issues. However, Ken, Andy, etc, unwittingly labour under the misapprehension that it works the other way round - all liberals are atheists, and all atheists are liberals, while it's obviously not true.

##  Using Linear Algebra To Analyze "Liberal style on Wikipedia "

In the application section of the CP article on 'linear algebra' Andy writes:

 “” "An n x m matrix can be developed using observed incidents of liberal style in Wikipedia entries, and that data can then be simplified to draw conclusions about liberal style can mislead viewers. The n rows can represent different elements of liberal style, while the m columns can represent different types of entries on Wikipedia."

Arghh, is this guy a real person? /rhetorical--Night Jaguar (talk) 15:08, 9 May 2010 (UTC)

It is my conclusion that the one called Schlafly is not human, but is in fact a highly sophisticated android exquisitely programmed to make a complete tit of himself. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 15:26, 9 May 2010 (UTC)
This is a powerful insight in the automated detection of liberal style. To a Wiki we associate a linear map $A_W : V_{\text{content}} \to V_{\text{liberal style}}$ as described. I would suggest a further generalization, that $V_{\text{liberal style}}$ is probably not finite-dimensional but rather some much larger Banach space, given the many forms of liberal deceit. CP is the unique wiki with the property that $A_{CP}$ is the zero operator, since no article has any liberal bias. $A_{WP}$ is surjective in that every form of liberal deceit is realized in some article or another. In fact the liberality of a wiki should be understood as some operator norm $\Vert A_W\Vert$ (though I suspect liberal deceit is an unbounded operator!) --MarkGall (talk) 16:06, 9 May 2010 (UTC)
At last, a use for Banach spaces. And there was me thinking they were just for pure mathematicians' wet dreams. Well there we are - CP has found a use for them. Put that in your grant proposal! The Real James Brown (talk) 22:41, 9 May 2010 (UTC)
James Brown, we at CP see liberal deceit for what it is: complete, and infinite (dimesional). Liberals can find no basis for their beliefs without resort to the axiom of choice, and they may have no Schauder basis at all. Conservatism in contrast is based on the most logical axiom of all, the Bible. Deny this and lose all credibility. --MarkGall (talk) 23:21, 9 May 2010 (UTC)
Believing in the Bible means accepting that statements which appear utterly contradictory must all be true. Bit like quantum mechanics, really. The Real James Brown (talk) 23:47, 9 May 2010 (UTC)
Well, since the Bible contradicts itself if you accept it you can prove any statment and its negation and go on a date with your friend's mom.--Night Jaguar (talk) 00:50, 10 May 2010 (UTC)
Careful there, Jaguar. The Explosion Principle means that anything can be true. E.g. I could prove the statement that you have to go on a date with Andy's mum... Worrying afterthought: The Bible is almost completely self-contradictory (fact) and the Raving Right believes it's all literally true (fact, from their point of view), so the Explosion Principle applies and we all have to go on a date with Andy's mum. Next question: will she enjoy it? The Real James Brown (talk) 09:26, 10 May 2010 (UTC)
Not only will she enjoy it, it can be shown that we will as well. Dwell on that.--Martin Arrowsmith (talk) 12:53, 10 May 2010 (UTC)
I think that disproves the Explosion Principle. The Real James Brown (talk) 21:00, 10 May 2010 (UTC)
So speaks the creator of the liberal style bot. You still haven't told us about that. EddyP (talk) 16:10, 9 May 2010 (UTC)
Oh, I really did write the thing (though I can't say I did terribly much debugging, but who cares really). I think it should be pretty good at spotting liberals insofar as cp:liberal style actually has anything to do with liberals. As for the scores I actually posted, it was surprisingly hard to choose all those constants to make Schlafly more conservative than Human. --MarkGall (talk) 16:17, 9 May 2010 (UTC)
No doubt about it; Andy's on a mathematical tear. He has now started adding "content", rather than just filling the linear algebra category with every phrase that pops into his head. He's still trying to make sense of the issue of eigenvectors and eigenvalues for real operators.
But I submit that he's overlooking the application of this to the "liberal style" matrix. Since the matrix has all its eigenvalues and eigenvectors (use the Hahn-Banach theorem and the axiom of choice as needed), that means that, for every type of liberal style, there must be an article that precisely describes and epitomizes it. Right? But doesn't the Gödel incompleteness theorem apply here? Isn't there a WP article that denies its own existence? I guess that means that the liberal style space and article space aren't Hilbert spaces after all, and the operator is unbounded.
But help is on the way! Andy has written an article on the spectral theorem, which I'm sure will take care of everything. After all, the article says that the spectral theorem can be used to .... it's in here somewhere .... wait for it .... ah, here it is: solve problems. In fact, it is "frequently used to solve problems". No wonder Mark has so much trouble with his style bot—he didn't use the spectral theorem. Gauss (talk) 17:31, 9 May 2010 (UTC)

So does all this math activity by Andy mean he's gearing up to teach his Conservative Thinking and Math course? ħuman 21:14, 10 May 2010 (UTC)

As far as Andy is concerned, his brainpower is speed of light combined with the universal constant of conservatism (U) to the power of how much is going on in his life multiplied by the amount of time spent on his wiki:

##  Blaming the oil spill on Obama

This really, really pisses me off. I know I should be desensitized to Andy's cognitive dissonance by now, but this one is just inexcusable. Tetronian you're clueless 00:38, 10 May 2010 (UTC)

Well, just remember that no one in real life really listens to Andy. Whatever he says carries virtually no weight. I tell myself that whenever I start to get angry. Senator Harrison (talk) 00:47, 10 May 2010 (UTC)
That's a damn good point, and I will certainly keep that in mind. There is, however, one things that will always trouble me: the man is a teacher. (In our home state, no less!) I never thought I'd say it, but "think of the children." Tetronian you're clueless 00:59, 10 May 2010 (UTC)
Oh man, I didn't think of that. Thanks. Senator Harrison (talk) 01:14, 10 May 2010 (UTC)
Exactly why there should be standards and regulations to homeschooling. Especially the teacher must be fuckin' sane!--Thanatos (talk) 01:29, 10 May 2010 (UTC)
What pisses you off about it exactly? I think that the way they're doing it is absurd (the cp:Gulf oil spill disaster is a joke) but it's fair enough to put some of the blame on Obama for inadequate response or the policy as a whole. I'm not sure you'd be right about the former - most of the response methods and the regulation were under Bush - but you (and CP) would certainly be right to blame Obama for his share in supporting domestic oil drilling. It's a stupid practice and actually less moral than foreign drilling since our regulations are so weak, and part of the overall oil dependency problem. Obama diverged from his base and the left on it.
That said, CP is insanely hypocritical on this. They've been advocating domestic drilling in every conceivable fashion and probably personally went to their backyards and fished around with a coat hanger, just in case.--talk 01:35, 10 May 2010 (UTC)
I do blame Obama for it. What annoys me is the hypocrisy - the Republicans have supported offshore drilling forever, but as soon as something goes wrong, in Andy's mind it was always Obama's idea, etc. Then, once everyone forgets about this disaster, Andy will go right back to supporting offshore drilling again. That kind of willful self-deception is very disturbing to me. Even worse, he teaches children American history a stone's throw away from my house. Tetronian you're clueless 01:43, 10 May 2010 (UTC)
I'd throw that stone right back, if I were you.  Lily Inspirate me. 06:12, 10 May 2010 (UTC)
It is classic doublethink. It is possible to know something is true while simulataneously knowing the opposite is true. That Orwell was a clever fella. --DamoHi 05:32, 10 May 2010 (UTC)

Wait, what Obama did was a political play of being "for" off shore drilling, as a way to defuse the "drill baby drill" shit. Then there was an off shore drilling disaster, one mostly approved by Bush holdovers. If Obama has any blame in this, it's whether his admin. responds/responded in a timely fashion with whatever they could do. If it weren't for the environmental calamity, the whole thing would make me laugh. ħuman 04:23, 10 May 2010 (UTC)

Wow, Obama received $77,051 from BP. I'm sure that'll really put him in debt to BP's corporate interests. Oh hang on, those donations are from BP employees. Not from the company. So what's that meant to prove? Lily Inspirate me. 08:59, 10 May 2010 (UTC) And McCain received somewhere in the region of$30,000 - do we get to blame him as well? Worm(t | c) 11:20, 10 May 2010 (UTC)

It is legitimate for somebody who opposed off shore drilling to blast Obama for supporting off shore drilling. Andy, on the other hand, is just a hypocritical liar who is going to hell. It is also legitimate for someone to say I was wrong for having had supported off shore drilling in the past because of the BP disaster. I may be in that latter category.

Do you think he may have known her from Harvard? She was there until '86 and was supervisory editor of the Harvard Law Review. Bondurant (talk) 10:55, 11 May 2010 (UTC)
She's gay, isn't she? Maybe he's having a little tizzy because she wouldn't date him...? The Real James Brown (talk) 11:13, 11 May 2010 (UTC)
She's widely rumored to be gay, but it's never been confirmed. For that matter, I don't think it's been denied, either -- the "official" response has been essentially "it's none of your business."
Of course, there were lots of rumors about David Souter, too, but I think in his case, it's a matter of "he's married to The Law." (Now, that doesn't preclude an open relationship where The Law allows him to sleep with other women or men, but still...)
The "politically correct" response, if you will, is "it's none of your business", but my activist side says that gay rights cases are going to be coming before the Court increasingly, and it would be nice to have someone who's a little sympathetic. MDB (talk) 11:35, 11 May 2010 (UTC)

I think your esteemed President was also supervising editor of the Harvard Law Review and the dates make it almost certain that Andy knew him at Harvard - i.e. Barry and Andy were editors of the HLR at the same time, so presumably they knew each other. So I'm sensing a trend here, in the sense of a guy whose career has gone into the basement (literally) spitting with jealousy at two of his classmates becoming hugely successful and influential.

May 2010 is worse than July 2009. Category:CP Main page does need filling out - David Gerard (talk) 12:39, 11 May 2010 (UTC)
The main page comes off as a battle between the sysops, jockeying for their pet causes to have top billing. This is especially true of Ken who routinely (and haphazardly) shoves promotional bits about his pet projects. Ever notice how the "featured article" of Ken's pet project and personal fiefdom of Evolution is at the top, while Abortion, the "Article of the Year" is shoved below the "Conservapedia Richard Dawkins Project", and you have to scroll down significantly to even see it? --BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 12:52, 11 May 2010 (UTC)
On pretty much every wiki, once the front page reaches a usable design, it tends to stay there unless and until someone comes up with something really convincingly good. Even RationalWiki. RW is a sort of forum/group-blog using a wiki engine, but at least it doesn't pretend it's something else - David Gerard (talk) 12:55, 11 May 2010 (UTC)
Lily The Pink links this spectacular example. "Conservapedia has learned that ..." So is it a trustworthy encyclopedia, a blog, a newspaper, a forum or an abnormal psychology case file? - David Gerard (talk) 13:08, 11 May 2010 (UTC)
I had to search a bit for that, I remembered one time when Ken went overboard on MainPageLeft. Really, that one should adorn WP's article on CP.

##  Andy censors Kagan's religion heritage

This just kind of tickled me. Andy reverts edit about Kagan's Jewish heritage because Conservapedia doesn't emphasize racial identity (most likely because this woman was appointed by Obama, so she must be an atheist, so referring to her as "Jewish" must mean race, not religion). Andy then tells the casual user to edit more often, probably so Andy has something to revert. — Sincerely, Neveruse / Talk / Block 20:47, 11 May 2010 (UTC)

• LOL - I love these! Conservapedia has a gift that nobody else has, not even Barack the magic negro: they can find the most random, no-name nobody who has a blog and turn their scribblings into "EXTRA! EXTRA! READ ALL ABOUT IT!" front-page news. Listen to what a jackass I am! I clearly don't realize that the source for this, Thomas Brewton, is clearly one of the pillars of modern intellectual thought and deserves top billing. Just read his own self-written stellar credentials:
Thomas E. Brewton, who maintains this blog, had the great good fortune in the middle 1950s at Louisiana State University to study under two of the 20th century’s great minds: Eric Voegelin in political science, and Walter Berns in Constitutional law. These two professors opened the door of education to a glimpse of Western civilization and of American political and social thought as they had been before socialism was unconstitutionally established as the official national religion of the United States in 1933.

Come on Thomas, stop puffing yourself up or you'll never get a Wikipedia biography with such shameless self-promotion! Walter Berns? The same Walter Berns who was called a 'racist' and left Cornell in an uproar? Not that that means anything - I got it from Wikipedia, and in typical Wikipedia fashion anything 'controversial' is watered down and re-worded so that you have no idea what, exactly, happened, just that something ZOMG! happened[7].

Forgive my ignorance, but I was under the impression that Google's sooper seekrit algorithm can pick up on such efforts at linkbait (somehow, who knows how) and it has the opposite of the desired effect, hurting your Pagerank?

The late humourist and former editor of Punch, Alan Coren, was of the opinion that there are three sure-fire ingredients which can make a book successful: Golf, Cats & Nazis. He therefore wrote a book called Golfing for Cats which featured a cover image of a cat playing golf with Nazi pin flags.  Lily Inspirate me. 14:17, 12 May 2010 (UTC)

##  David Cameron

CP's article on DC is apallingly written. "Cameron is/was/has ..." - oh well, about par for the course, I suppose.  Lily Inspirate me. 08:05, 12 May 2010 (UTC)

And apparently he's "current Prime Minister of England". Cantabrigian (talk)
Anyone know why they list him as the 75th Prime Minister? Not only do we not really do the whole numbering thing in the UK, I'm not sure where the number 75 comes from. There have been 53 different Prime Ministers, some having more than one term of office (non-consecutive), but my count from the list at WP makes David Cameron the 76th PM, if it really matters. Worm(t | c) 09:23, 12 May 2010 (UTC)
Wow, there's some real gibberish in there. ħuman 10:01, 12 May 2010 (UTC)
I don't know why, but recently I've become increasingly annoyed with people thinking "England" is interchangeable with the "United Kingdom." Maybe I'm becoming more nationalistic in my old age. The fact that CP cannot even get this basic fact right, under leadership of a man who claims superior knowledge in World History, let alone many other things, combined with the six edits since DC became Premier compared with the over 200 Wikipedia have had speaks volumes about how CP has failed miserably at trying to become an alternative to Wikipedia. And you'd think, with all that pesky liberal bias in Wikipedia, especially concerning the election of a Conservative PM, people would flock to Conservapedia to get the real facts, wouldn't ya? SJ Debaser 12:04, 12 May 2010 (UTC)
I understand where you are coming from if you are British, but from an American perspective watching the CP folks--who demonstrate little understanding of the British system and electorate--try to pronounce 'The Truth' about the election and shoe-horn it into an American ideological paradigm has been delightful! I have to link to it again, but remember when they were proclaiming the "landslide" victory of the Tories they added landslide to list of 'Conservative words'. Thank you, Kendoll, for claiming a random word as "conservative" when your use of it showed that you didn't understand what was happening and completely misused it in both a connotative and denotative sense. --Leotardo (talk) 13:59, 12 May 2010 (UTC)

If it were anyone else I'd say it's one of those "funny old world" type news articles, but I think the message from Conservapedia is that country of United Great England sucks, and that Andy is correct to exhort his followers to abandon books as a source of learning. --ConcernedResident banana for the ladies 16:26, 12 May 2010 (UTC)

It'd be an interesting nugget anywhere else. On CP, it's lacking that certain open-minded flair. — Sincerely, Neveruse / Talk / Block 20:08, 12 May 2010 (UTC)

Brings up an interesting thought though - I wonder could Andy be convinced to start a Conservative Dictionary Project? He's already done a lot of the work with his Best New Conservative Words dreck, and he could "put the band back together" and tackle the conservatisation of the entire English language next? Wouldn't that be great? DogPMarmite Patrol 21:54, 12 May 2010 (UTC)

##  Research Assistance Requested

In reading some of Andy's older classics, I was inspired today to create a new article titled Schlafenfreude, which is a new term coined to describe Andy's delight in the misfortune of people who don't agree with his worldview. I'm trying to find some definitive examples of this, but keep coming up short even though I know I've seen this on multiple occasions. Examples that come to mind are tragedies involving liberal values, Hollywood values, atheistic nations, mass-murders in countries that were asking for it because they support gun control, etc. Any suggestions? --SpinyNorman (talk) 21:49, 12 May 2010 (UTC)

Check the entire Heath Ledger dialog I and others were involved in with Andy. That skullfucker just sits around waiting for people who aren't like him to die, so he can be superior about them. DogPMarmite Patrol 22:00, 12 May 2010 (UTC)

1. I thought that Schlafenfreude rolled off the tongue better than Schlaflenfreude, but now I'm not so sure. I'm having one of those indecisive nights. Or maybe not. I think.
2. Correct.
3. Correct again, and removed. --SpinyNorman (talk) 02:17, 13 May 2010 (UTC)

##  Andy bothering, a new feature of Ken

I hadn't really noticed that Ken's bothering of Andy on his Talk page really only started at the end of January - it's a new thing for our old buddy. Prior to this, Ken had never come around slobbering for attention from the boss. And of course Andy now has to put up with about six edits every time Ken tries to send him a lookatmeeeeeee message. His latest jumping up and down for attention is just brilliant, featuring a passing reference in a blog about a musician. DogPMarmite Patrol 22:31, 12 May 2010 (UTC)

I think he's trying to get the attention of RW as well. Why else would he mention McMaster College?img And he keeps on bringing up the Wayne Gretsky (sic) of creationism.img
That's probably what he's doing. He obviously can't say, "Hey Trent! Look at this!!" on Andy's talk page, so this is the next best thing. That reminds me: it's been a while since we've seen a "gentlemen" post. The last one I remember was the one addressed to "Mrs. K" (Kels).

It's stuff like that that makes me think he is a parodist. Then I come to my senses and realize he is an idiot. Hell, he even made typos on the revisions to fix his original ones. Gotta love it when the WIGO's write themselves. NetharianCubicles are prisons! 23:04, 13 May 2010 (UTC)

It's not even the fact that he makes typos that makes me laugh. Everyone makes typos or spells a word they don't use often wrong, or stuff. It's the fact that he immediately leaps on a typo when someone else makes one and uses it as evidence for him being better at whatever the topic is about than they are, or as a way to completely avoid the topic.

The thing I'm most proud of about England is how multicultural we are. Especially in London. SJ Debaser 11:19, 14 May 2010 (UTC)

The strangest part about Andy's typos isn't the volume but the type. Andy makes quite a few verb tense errors (there are examples cataloged here). Due to the high complexity of verb tenses in English, this is relatively common in non-native speakers but almost non-existent in native speakers. Even the handful of outright illiterate English-speaking people I've ever met still knew enough to use the right tenses. It's just instinctive if you've grown up with the language. On occasion, I've seen Andy slip up and use the perfect form when he should have used the simple form. This is something you see in non-native speakers who are almost (but not quite) proficient in English - they overcompensate and use the more complex form. I've never seen a native English speaker do that - at least not before Andy. I guess what I'm saying is that I might be more likely to take Andy seriously if he spoke and wrote English as well as the foreigners he's complaining about.

Well, he could have said what he was really thinking, that her fag son (and herself) are going to burn in hell with Andy's brother. I have sympathy for the woman, but these guys have shown they are pretty mean, angry and petty--what's the point of always revealing the 'we know where you are' IP info aside from intimidation?--that I thought this was tame compared to how they usually vent their frustration that the world has changed around them and laughs at them. They're not even taken seriously by either the conservative or evangelical movements - if they were, you'd see far, far more editors than just the same cast of clowns. I wish they would learn that they are jokes, moderate, stop giving King powers to fools, become nicer and attract more bloggers, b/c it's boring that we are forced to have to ridicule the same five to ten people every day. It's un-Christian, their lack of concern for our needs. --Leotardo (talk) 00:12, 14 May 2010 (UTC)
Good point. Still, I think they're so pagued by radicals they don't even realize how crazy they are. I'm part glad they're so crazy because they damage their own cause, but at the same time, it only attracts more radicalism, which is what worries me. rational ghey (send a message) 00:34, 14 May 2010 (UTC)
I agree, but they are so off-putting that they have trouble attracting a wider circle of their crazy brothers and sisters. How do we get them to Keep the Krazy, but Ditch the Douchiness so we can have more people to laugh at?

I dunno - the place is so finely tuned to their particular strain of wingnut. They also approach all newcomers (and even minor dissenters) with absolute contempt; it's hard to see how they'll ever be anything than a vanity project of Andy and his small group of angry bloggers while they are running the show. When Jimmy Wales started to make unilateral deletions of pornographic images on Wikimedia Commons, 80% of the Wikimedia community (when I last saw, roughly 400 to 100) voted to strip him of his powers. Could you imagine anything like that at all on CP? That right there shows why WP is as big as it is, and CP is doomed to be a small group of mean angry Christians. --Leotardo (talk) 00:53, 14 May 2010 (UTC)
(EC)Any "new blood" is immediately suspected as bad blood, thanks to TK. To fit in you have to follow Andy on every weird issue unquestioning, something which any other human in the world who knows how to operate a computer could not in his right mind do without appearing to be so over the top as be suspect as a parodist.

Look at how they treated Phyte with the bird feeder. This person just wanted their opinions--maybe a college student--and Andy basically says a bunch of crazy stuff and tells the person to shut up, get to work, and upon inspection and approval of that work he'll maybe then talk a little more. Who sees that and wants to join? It's not even a conservative or liberal thing - it's a human thing. Humans don't want to be around humans like that, a truth they are likely very, very familiar with IRL. --Leotardo (talk) 01:02, 14 May 2010 (UTC)

Whilst the "letter" exposes the depth of homophobia on CP it is a little disingenuous in that it has been, as Terry Koeckritz points out, circulating on the web for some time. As such we cannot truly tell the intentions of the poster. It does look like they were trolled. Jack Hughes (talk) 08:05, 14 May 2010 (UTC)

Yeh I did see that letter before, so that part is disingenuous. I don't understand why you say they got "trolled" though. This doesn't seem like trolling to me at all? --GTac (talk) 08:39, 14 May 2010 (UTC)
They were trolled in as much as someone deliberately posted something to provoke an angry reaction. Someone writing anti-homophobic posts on CP is as provocative as EL with his "all abortionists are murdering scum" postings on RW. Jack Hughes (talk) 08:47, 14 May 2010 (UTC)

### Stupid WIGO

Can we just drop the related WIGO? It is indeed copy-pasted from this 10-year-old article; it recently popped up on reddit, which is probably where "SUnderwood" got it.

If I got a copypasting troll like this on my site, I'd kick 'em off with extreme prejudice as well. Trying to rake Conservapedia over the coals for eliminating lazy trolls is stupid. Hell, I wouldn't be surprised if "SUnderwood" is someone here who is now ecstatic after getting a rise out of RW, on top of Conservapedia's reaction, in which case RW has been trolled just as much as CP.

In short, this is stupid, although I have to commend "SUnderwood" for shit-stirring so effectively. Fedhaji (Talk) 14:13, 14 May 2010 (UTC)

That was my reading too, and that "because the article shows that all life is derived from one event, then multiple abiogenesis events didn't occur. Therefore because life could (should) have arrived multiple times, abiogenesis didn't occur at all (the sky fairy did it). Therefore evolution is wrong." Since he is using evolution to disprove abiogenesis to disprove evolution, this is just so far from wrong it makes, well anything else seem sane. CS Miller (talk) 14:14, 14 May 2010 (UTC)

I'm kind of surprised to see so many answers to the question posed, and I do love Andy's "Build my website and play with my balls before I answer your questions" approach. Andy's Christianity is a vehicle for his extreme conservative views, and in that sense he could just as easily be a Muslim, but one would think he'd be more interested in sharing his astonishing conservative insights. Ha, "Conservatives are more skeptical than liberals"? Perhaps, but certainly not in the case of Mr "The earth was hand-made by some god less than 10,000 years ago and we all have to accept the free market principles of Jesus in order to be earn a mansion in Heaven?

My favorite part of this whole thing was the Andre Bauer-esque comparison of wild animals to poor people that TK undertook on Phyte's Talk page to say that if we give poor people anything, they'll shit all over us, just like they have shit all over Atheist Liberal Canada (which didn't have nearly the fiscal problems that the U.S. has suffered).

I think you have it wrong; it was in Luke 150:2.5 where it read, "Offer the needy food, and when they take it get pissed off at them for wanting it, take it back, and kick 'em in the gonads and let them know how awful they are for needing food. Then return to the tranquility of when you didn't offer it to them and realize you are better than them because--hoohoo!--you have all the food and they have none!

No. I assumed he did some stupid cut-n-paste job where it was in the form a limerick or one of those odd mass-forward e-mails where they press ENTER for dramatic effect, or whatever, because of the crazed use of capitalization. Do you know who else used to capitalize like that? Goebbels. But I took heart in imagining TK reading it and thinking that this just perfectly illustrated the irrefutable logic he feels - because it does! Even red-blooded Conservatives were disgusted by Andre Bauer's statements - so, if you need to see how warped of a wingnut Terry Koeckritz is even in his own community, he just gave you a handy example. TK's influence will never extend beyond Conservapedia, a project held in high disdain by other wingnuts. The only audience he has is us; the only attention our laughter.

Even the vandals and parodists cant be arsed anymore. Douglas and Jacob's editing has really dropped off, the CBP is stagnating (only TerryH seems to edit it anymore) and the only reason they garner more than two hundred edits a day is because of Ken's (and seemingly Rob's) habit of not using the preview button and because of a single vandal who manages to hit a load of pages which need reversion - that voiceofreason one caused over 80 edits. EddyP (talk) 22:59, 15 May 2010 (UTC)

Probably. Anyone who was going to bother trying to get into CP as a parodist would've done it by now. Any latecomers (i.e. someone who started trying now) would probably be banned before they got started anyway. And all the ones who are still there are probably getting bored because it's old. Who's watching them? Just us and the guys at CP. The guys at CP are either parodists themselves or too dense (or focussed on their own pet projects) to notice any parody, and we've largely started ignoring the parodists in favour of documenting andy's own brand of crazy. I guess the only thing we have left to see is if the deep cover guys will get bored and just stop editing, or go out in a bang. X Stickman (talk) 00:42, 16 May 2010 (UTC)

Strangely enough, there was a programme on BBC Radio 4 (translation into Yankee: Lib'rul Radio) a couple of weeks ago about the Great Wall of China, with several academics talking about the hideous way in which various emperors used forced labour to build the thing. I guess none of them (the academics) were Lib'ruls. The Real James Brown (talk) 20:54, 14 May 2010 (UTC)

That was actually the point that I thought he was making - that liberals didn't condemn the Chinese for their use of forced labour - until the Arizona thing was mentioned.  Lily Inspirate me. 21:10, 14 May 2010 (UTC)
Or that they need that kind of wall at all cost even if it means re-establishing slavery (haven't they heard of smuggling tunnels in the news?). And oh yes, the closest thing Mongols had for aerial attack back then is catapulting corpses into castles/city walls to start plagues. Not sure how such things work with such a walled fortification though. ThiehLooking for potion recipes 21:18, 14 May 2010 (UTC)
My point was that people who know about China are perfectly ready to describe the shocking way in which it was built by forced labour - shocking to us now and to the builders' families 2,200 years ago. 90% of the people taken from their villages to build the wall died in the process, from hunger, cold, injuries or Huns. There's a poem of the Qin dynasty exhorting women to have daughters because if they have sons, they'll be taken away by the Emperor and killed while building his wall. I've never seen or heard the building of the Great Wall described without the misery of those who built it being discussed too. Summary: as usual, CP is talking total bollocks. The Real James Brown (talk) 23:50, 14 May 2010 (UTC)
Technically the builders are mostly convicted fellows, but its mostly due to the code of law that is so steep that convicts almost everyone. But yeah, there is parallels in that and today's right wing thinking pattern. ThiehZOYG I edit like Ken! 04:01, 15 May 2010 (UTC)

The shame!) the Great Wall of China was not built to keep people OUT of the country, but to keep them IN; it was not, in fact, tall enough to make invaders stay out, but it was a great obstacle when the invading troops, laden with loot and presumably being run after by angry Chinese armies, tried to go back to Mongolia. --Maquissar (talk) 21:14, 14 May 2010 (UTC)
When Qin Shi Huang Di ordered it to be built, he had two main purposes. One was to intimidate the Mongols, Manchus, Huns, etc who were supposed to be astonished at the political power of an Emperor who could order such a huge structure to be built (not walk through the many gaps - naughty Huns...) The other was to soak up the pool of able-bodied young men who might otherwise be tempted to go off fighting (hence looting) on behalf of local warlords opposed to Qin Shi Huang Di. I would add citations if I could be arsed. Listen to the programme I linked above, or read any of the many histories of China (apart from those written by 1960s Mao-worshippers). The Real James Brown (talk) 00:00, 15 May 2010 (UTC)

To be fair to the Romans Hadrian's wall was a symbolic gesture, the terrain was already extremely defensible, the wall sent the message that the romans would not be invading any further. --Opcn (talk) 21:59, 14 May 2010 (UTC)

Also, it was built by soldiers, who were not only volunteers but well-paid by the standards of the time. (Unlike the Chinese wall.) The Real James Brown (talk) 23:50, 14 May 2010 (UTC)

No, it's not an insult to be a closet crossdresser, but it would be an insult to be one and then spread a twisted worldview that harms others like you. It's not an insult to be a closet gay, but it's an insult to call George Rekers of NARTH one because the insult is that he's a hypocrite (and harming others who are like him). I found it a little disconcerting that NARTH was used as a source on the Homosexuality article.

I quite like hearing about TK's latest. I know he's just trolling and it's totally pathetic but that's what I like about it. I would be a little upset if he stopped as I would lose my daily entertainment. I say keep it up and keep posting about it. StarFish (talk) 18:55, 16 May 2010 (UTC)

It would make things much simpler. Can anyone write a skin we can view CP as a whole through that would allow voting on articles or diffs? Oh, yeah, it's called WIGO CP... ħuman 21:59, 16 May 2010 (UTC)

##  Government run healthcare = postal service

I'm a little confused by this on CP's news page: Really want government run health care? with a link to this article that mentions nothing at all about health care. I really don't understand the link - can anybody explain it to me? I mean, even faux news didn't make the leap from a dodgy mail man to health care, so how on earth did Schlafly? Bondurant (talk) 16:42, 15 May 2010 (UTC)

I assume that he's equating sloppy practices in one part of State-provided services (USPS) with another (Healthcare). Of course, the private sector never has sloppy practices, and if they were to occur, would be quick to stop them. CS Miller (talk) 17:03, 15 May 2010 (UTC)
Exactly correct. Just like the Gulf oil spill. Nothing sloppy there, and a quick cleanup. See the benefits of deregulation now? Good. DogPMarmite Patrol 17:11, 15 May 2010 (UTC)
To be fair, we should pull a government oil spill to compare it(the Gulf oil spill) to. ThiehAhh! my eyes!! 18:35, 15 May 2010 (UTC)
It doesn't matter, since Andy et al. will never notice the good things that the US government has done. Granted, it's a short list, but there are some important things up there, like the space program and public universities. Tetronian you're clueless 18:45, 15 May 2010 (UTC)
• The Internet
• The interstate highway system
• Rural elecrification
• National defense
• Vaccination programs
Just off the top of my head

MDB (talk) 18:53, 15 May 2010 (UTC)

• Welfare programs
• Public schools
• Public universities/ag schools
• Welfare programs
Nutty Roux (talk) 19:12, 15 May 2010 (UTC)
To be fair, neither of those ed programs are federal, they are local and state affairs, repectively. ħuman 20:01, 15 May 2010 (UTC)
• The Internet Has liberal bias
• The interstate highway system Full of potholes, costly to maintain
• Rural elecrification waste of taxpayer dollars
• National defense And now the liberals want to allow gays
• Vaccination programs Autism... and abortion for good measure
• Welfare programs Destroys personal responsibility and the motivation to work hard
• Public schools Teaches children to hate God and love everything God is against
• Public universities/ag schools See above
• Welfare programs See three above
Senator Harrison (talk) 19:38, 15 May 2010 (UTC)
one of the bad things about government-run postal services is someone going postal every so often. Perhaps government-run healthcare services will have someone going healthcare every so often. ThiehCP≠Child Porn? 20:42, 15 May 2010 (UTC)
Ah, I forgot about the highway system, vaccination, and the power grid. Most of the others, though, could be argued against: national defense is exorbitantly expensive, public schools are often sub-par, etc. (even though I don't agree with such counter-arguments). My point was that conservatives will never, ever mention the things that the government does that they can't even argue weakly against. Tetronian you're clueless 21:39, 15 May 2010 (UTC)
All right, but apart from the internet, national defence, public schools, vaccination programs, roads, welfare programs, rural electrification and public health, what has the US government ever done for us? X Stickman (talk) 00:50, 16 May 2010 (UTC) had to be done

To cover the original point, comparing the Postal Service to government health care... the USPS is quasi-private, and receives almost no Federal funding. MDB (talk) 01:22, 16 May 2010 (UTC)

I've been running what they used to call a "mail order business" for 23 years, and have yet to hear of a letter or package sent via USPS to me being lost. UPS, on the other hand... misdelivers packages to a similar address in the next town over and claims they delivered it to me (one of which I had to pay for twice). The drivers are good, but they have made more errors than the "government run" version. Also, when they destroy packages, they disclaim all responsibility. ħuman 04:00, 16 May 2010 (UTC)
My last company has had a few goods damaged whilst in UPS's care. We joked about sending a package containing a GPS unit and accelerometers connected to a solid-state data logger, to see how the package was treated, but we never got around to it. CS Miller (talk) 14:27, 16 May 2010 (UTC)
I've only had one item sent to me via UPS. It didn't arrive. Phoned up and they said it had been delivered to the dept next door. They sent me a copy of the signature which was a forgery of the woman's signature who takes the post in that dept. Later I got a call from the driver saying "it's next door mate, I dropped it off there", and when I said it wasn't there and the signature was a forgery, he hung up, and the package magically appeared on my desk the next day. Presumably the drivers take interesting packages home, wait to see if anyone notices, and then open them and keep the contents a while later. CrundyTalk nerdy to me 21:40, 16 May 2010 (UTC)
Also remember that the USPS has to provide service to the entire country. Period. That's the law. They can't decide that a given area is too small or too isolated and just not deliver mail there. UPS and FedEx have that option. Plus, standard first class mail is dirt cheap. Forty four cents to get a letter or a greeting card or such anywhere in the country is amazingly inexpensive (and a great example of economies of scale.) Yeah, there's no guarantee it will arrive on a given schedule like UPS and FedEx offer, but USPS's express services that do compete with the other two are, well, competitive. And that's without a Federal subsidy. (I can't find the data, but I've heard that they do get some Federal money, but its for services they provide, like guaranteed absentee ballot delivery for service members.)

Wait, is Rob trying to say NYT is a reliable source? I thought Conservapedia thought it was a liberal newspaper? Now I'm all confused..... LimpWrist (talk) 21:36, 15 May 2010 (UTC)
To Rob, anything is a reliable source if it proves your point. But he is being ridiculously thick, to the point that I'm half convinced that he is joking. Even Rob must understand the classic Simpsons' joke: Roger Ebert said, "This movie is . . . good!" Tetronian you're clueless 21:43, 15 May 2010 (UTC)
Maybe he's just assuming that no one will actually click on the link to the Krugman article? The fact that it's still there comes across to me as blatant parody. PACODOGwoof, bitches 21:48, 15 May 2010 (UTC)
But joking like that doesn't fit with Rob's personality, since he really does think it's Obama's fault, unless his whole anti-communism/liberalism shtick is parody (or at least just this part of it). Perhaps he's a closet communist? Tetronian you're clueless 22:01, 15 May 2010 (UTC)
I know I'm stating the obvious here, but he HAS to know that citing Krugman's opinion piece in this way is clearly decietful. Joking or not, why would he set himself up like this? It has to be parody, right? I mean...come on. PACODOGwoof, bitches 22:09, 15 May 2010 (UTC)

Unrelated, but I love how in the introduction of that "article" they immediately go into obama's actions and his presidency and his political positions while completely omitting palin's "drill baby drill" nonsense. rational ghey (send a message) 20:26, 16 May 2010 (UTC)
Yah well Palin ain't president and the truth is Palin raised taxes on oil companies in Alaska, which is (a) a disincentive to production, and (b) a very un-Republican thing to do. So, it helps to become a little bit informed. nobsdon't bother me 23:54, 16 May 2010 (UTC)
It might be a disincentive, might not be. Depends on how high they were before and how much they eat into profits. You're ignoring the GOP/right wing position which was chanting "drill baby drill" because you prefer to focus that laser-like attention span you have on ways to blame the "left" (which Obama isn't) for everything possible. ħuman 02:08, 17 May 2010 (UTC)

• Palin: Uninspiring Tax Policy Record | Cato @ Liberty
• Palin 'governed from the center,' went after big oil - USATODAY.com
• Palin Boosted Oil-Company Taxes While Alaska Had Budget Surplus ...www.bloomberg.com/
When have tax increases, particularly on business, ever been the cornerstone of a GOP candidate's rise in stature? Palin was a woman -- a counter to a black candidate and the woman the Democrats dumped, Hillary Clinton. But an examination of her limited record wasn't very flattering. Her national exposure came at Ted Stevens expense -- she represented an end to the cozy relationship between politicians and oil companies by making them work a little harder for government favors.
