It's all got such a TK sort of feel about it, doesn't it? The whole desire to say things off WP, so they're less likely to be used as evidence of things like harassment and so forth. Which is probably why, when he got blocked for harassing and threatening here, he didn't repeat a single word of it over at WP, where he could easily post to your talk page. Funny, that. --Kels (talk) 21:25, 6 April 2010 (UTC)

This is funny indeed. While I can see the advantage of using a wiki to "prepare" his "case" (formatting, etc.), he could use any wiki. But as I was "analyzing" some of what he has typed, I suddenly realized that CP is the dumbest one to choose - he can't type "rationalwiki" on that wiki! 16'll get you twenty that that page is dead and he's working on it elsewhere, once he realized what a pain it will be not being able to actually type his adversary's name. Oh, and far as the "TKish" aspects, you do know this is a TK joynt, right?

If he actually brings the "case" to arbcom it could range from a minor inconvenience (being "summoned" to turn up and watch him get slapped down) to a pain in the butt (actually having to read difflinks and type stuff).

Paranoia and Language[edit]

Please enjoy this recent Andy edit re: Title IXimg. There's a vaguely amusing slip there: observe that Title IX is not used by homosexuals or the homosexual community but by the homosexual agenda, i. e. the homosexual agenda has gone from an abstract product of human discourse to a person-like sentient entity with political consciousness. It almost like reading de Beauvoir again. I you've seen one persecution complex you've really seen them all. mb 12:45, 7 April 2010 (UTC)

The legal claim he refers to is real and there is a DoE guideline that may have the force of law (I don't know).

Well, he does explain those mutations only caused "loss" of information. That's pretty YECcy. Internetmoniker (talk) 22:16, 7 April 2010 (UTC)
ConcernedResident, thanks for pointing me in the right direction. When I first looked at the essay, I had the strangest sense of deja-vu, but I couldn't put my finger on where I had seen it before. Your Wolverine comment finally reminded me: It was thisimg comment (mentioned in Archive 174, the JimPT section where Wolverine was also brought up in the same context) by the same guy. So thanks for letting me sleep easily tonight. =P --Sid (talk) 22:46, 7 April 2010 (UTC)

Please note that Wolverine does not naturally have adamantium claws. He has regular bone claws that were later covered in adamantium (along with the rest of his skeleton) by a shady government department for shady government reasons (probably obama's death pannels needing a new assassin). So Stephen Fry has taken away our bone claws. </comicnerd> X Stickman (talk) 11:00, 8 April 2010 (UTC)

Ah, but Stick my friend, you are going off of the recent retcon story. Originally, Wolverine only had regeneration. The adamantium claws were added by the Weapon X program. This is obviously Obama's secret plan to upgrade his private Readycorps Army (which may not be an army, but has an army sounding name, so we'll assume it's an Army) to supersoldier levels so he can force all dissenters into Fema Camps. SirChuckBWill Sysop for food 18:21, 8 April 2010 (UTC)
Retcons are still canon! Plus this is still talking about the 90s, when magneto magneted his ass. Also it totally makes sense; they couldn't just jam metal claws in there, because they'd have to add a whole system to cope with it, like a method of locking them into place, muscles to control it etc... and we all know that Obama's healthcare will be so terrible that they won't have the ability to perform such complex surgery. So they must have been there right from the start. One thing I've always wondered, though; how does he bend his wrists? He's either got some amazingly strong wrist muscles when they're extended, or he shouldn't be able to bend his wrists at all. Also they must retract all the way into his forearms. X Stickman (talk) 20:16, 8 April 2010 (UTC)

Wait...what??[edit]

He must be kidding. No one can be this insane... Tetronian you're clueless 23:41, 7 April 2010 (UTC)

The bill creates a "Ready Reserve Corps" as part of its attempt to help reform the national medical response teams which supplement local emergency aid. This is a deliberately stupid interpretation of that section (5210).--ADtalkModerator 00:20, 8 April 2010 (UTC)
I read the articles he linked to - nowhere does it mention "military" or even "militia," so the Reserve Corps in question is obviously a medical emergency response team. It's stunning that anyone could be so hyperbolic or that CP (for all its insanity, there are people even crazier) would allow something like that on the main page. Tetronian you're clueless 00:23, 8 April 2010 (UTC)
I looked into this. The link points to a YouTube video of a Fox News segment. Andrew Napolitano goes off on this tear about how someone is trying to build a corps of 6,000 armed and uniformed doctors. Not joking. Naturally, he doesn't give the numbers of any segments of the bill, thus making it hard to look up. I picked up a few context clues and learned that he was blathering on about Sec. 5210: Establishing a Ready Reserve Corps. What it does is establish an organization similar to the National Guard, but designed specifically to aid in public health emergencies. Actually, it doesn't really establish the organization - Sec. 5210 is an amendment to a bill passed in 1944. What it does is change the organization of the health corps.
Are the corpsman armed? No. Are there 6,000 of them? The section doesn't say. Does it allow the corps to poach men from the National Guard? Not by my reading. In sum: Napolitano is full of shit, and so is BenjaminS. Colonel of Squirrels白山羊不山羊。商讨。 00:34, 8 April 2010 (UTC)
I'm probably being a bit naive here but why would Obama even need to create a new army by using sneaky wording in the healthcare bill. Doesn't he already control the actual military? Plus the national guard. 6,000 doctors/healthcare specialists, armed or not, don't really compare to that. X Stickman (talk) 10:57, 8 April 2010 (UTC)
I'm going to have to find my copy of this book (I've moved so often lately that I have no idea where half my library is any more) but from it, my recollection is that some, but by no means all, employees of the the CDC (and possibly other public health organisations) are members of a "uniformed service" and have uniforms (obviously!) and so on. Of course I can't remember useful details such as the name of said service!--NotANumber (talk) 16:07, 8 April 2010 (UTC)
Just to clarify, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention already has a rapid response section (the Epidemic Investigation Service) which investigates outbreaks of disease caused by anything from food-borne microorganisms (my area of interest) to Ebola and everything inbetween. Some EIS members are part of the uniformed corps referred to in the previous edit but so are other CDC employees. This corps might be called the Commissioned Corps but don't quote me on that.--NotANumber (talk) 16:16, 8 April 2010 (UTC)

Andy explains: "Reserve Corps" sounds like an army name, so therefore it must be one. Perfectly logical.--WJThomas (talk) 02:45, 8 April 2010 (UTC)

I've always wondered if being a judge isn't one of Andy's secret fantasies, actually. To some extent, a lot of ECHR and UK HoL cases do end up boiling down to 'because I said so', just as Andy's done here - it's just that the person or persons saying so have decades of experience and are infinitely more intelligent than Andy are (though it's shaky at times, I know). If Andy was to become a judge, I think he would be a little bit like this (explanation for why this is so fucking hilarious at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jeremy_Thorpe, incidentally, from 'Homosexuality scandal' onwards, though it is a stunning sketch without the foreknowledge anyway).

You'd have thought, by now, that Hurlbut/TerryH, as an Andy fan, would have asked Andy to take a more flattering photo of himself. Ideally one which doesn't make him look like a sex offender.

Returning to the original topic[edit]

As per the topic of the header, I think it is kind of interesting actually. The NJ state constitution clearly states what I think are the recall parameters. The state courts of NJ are constricted to what the state constitution says. The argument from Menedez is that there is a conflict with the Federal constitution. I don't think that can be settled in state court. The ruling they did get though was not that the recall was constitutional but rather that you could not stop the petition processes on the claim alone. That "standing" wouldn't exist for the constitutional claim till the signatures had been gathered and a recall election was put forward. Ultimately, I think the NJ state courts are bound to rule that the petition is valid under state constitution. However, whether there is a conflict between the state constitution and the federal constitution is a more interesting question. Has Andy ever argued a case before the national supreme court? I know he filed amicus curiae briefs all the time, but hell anyone can do that. I don't think he has ever actually been on council for a major enough case. I am interested. tmtoulouse 19:46, 6 April 2010 (UTC)

It is very interesting, especially as an NJ resident. Initially, I was surprised that the case made it to the Supreme Court so quickly, but Trent's point about the state constitution conflicting with the lack of federal precedent explains why. The problem (which I think Nutty brought up previously) is this: the Supreme Court doesn't like to set major precedents when they don't have to, and siding with the state constitution would mean giving states the power to interpret Article 1 of the Constitution (since it does not mention recalls), which would be a dramatic and earth-shattering verdict. I would think that they are more likely just to strike down the clause in the NJ state constitution that allows recalls, which they can certainly do under the Supremacy Clause. Tetronian you're clueless 22:38, 6 April 2010 (UTC)
It is still in NJ though right? I thought it was before the NJ Supreme Court, and if my legal understanding is correct they would still be obligated to find based on the NJ state constitution. tmtoulouse 22:42, 6 April 2010 (UTC)
Strike that, apparently a state supreme court does have authority to rule state constitutional clauses as violating national constitutional clauses. tmtoulouse 23:12, 6 April 2010 (UTC)
Right. Since the problem is that the clause indirectly contradicts Article 1 of the Constitution, striking the recall clause seems like the most likely option. If the Court gives the go-ahead for a recall, they will be doing something utterly without precedent and messing with Article 1, so I doubt that'll happen. I'm not sure if this can be appealed to the US Supreme Court, but I doubt it will. Tetronian you're clueless 23:15, 6 April 2010 (UTC)
What do you think of the lower courts decision that says, basically, until a recall election is actually called there is nothing for a court to do? tmtoulouse 23:19, 6 April 2010 (UTC)
It seemed like they were just passing it on to the higher court, since they didn't (or can't) strike down the clause in the NJ state constitution, which of course is the heart of the problem. So, they just passed the buck and said that they couldn't do anything until someone forced their hand. Tetronian you're clueless 23:51, 6 April 2010 (UTC)
I don't think it would hit SCOTUS until/unless the petition succeeded, creating a federal issue - a state actually recalling their Senator. And Andy is disingenuous, I think mentioning CA - if he's referring to the recall of their Governor, a state office of no federal impact. Let's face it, Senators don't work for their states, they work for all of us, in that the federal gov't pays them, not their state. I doubt that is "legally" interesting, but it is still interesting. To me, anyway. ħumanUser talk:Human 02:45, 7 April 2010 (UTC)

Andy's first sentence says a lot about him. He sees the world as completely black and white, and he thinks that teaching this to someone is "opening their mind." Though he recognizes that others don't share his view, he sees compromise and NOMA as self-denial. Also, he could definitely benefit from the following expression: "Don't try to have the last word.

Well, if by winning you mean "making reasonable points while Andy keeps falling back on a single shit example that doesn't match the situation, because that's all he's got," then yeah, but then, what else is new? Perhaps the fact that he's taking it and trying to argue back rather than threatening to block JimPT's ass for MYOB.
To me, it seems that Andy's conspicuously having to strain a little bit to justify his earlier comments. In most casess, he would have dismissed the situation immediately afterwards as typical liberal denial, but now, 2-3 days later, he's still letting himself be engaged in discussion about it. Junggai (talk) 08:02, 9 April 2010 (UTC)
Yeah. I'm curious as to why it's gone on for so long, and Andy seems to have no qualms about JDW leaving. I hope he does, and the same applies to JimPT. There's little they can achieve in Andy's star chamber of the illiterati.
Ed's comment provides a perfect example of an insincere attempt at being the voice of reason. Ed, here's a quick lesson in mediation. The goal is to try to establish yourself in a position of neutrality. It is oddly difficult to do this when you lavish all of your advice and criticism on one party. If this were a physical fight, Ed would be blowing Andy and jabbing JDW with a pointy stick while dispensing platitudes on how JDW should learn to accept disagreement. It's not about disagreement. It's about one guy trying to discuss a subject in a civil and reasoned manner while the other guy hurls red herrings and personal attacks. Ed, wipe your chin clean and quit CP to pursue your true calling in life. I suggest you'd make a fine door stopper, and in time you may even become a useful paperweight. If that fails; fill your pockets with stones and hurl yourself in to a river. You'll present the local water rescue teams with an invaluable opportunity to practice recovering the bloated corpse of a malicious dullard.

Guess who said it[edit]

Nice quiz for anyone who's been following so far: who said this in response to whom? The soul of polite conversation is to consider the feelings of others ahead of your own, and also to take about the issues at hand rather than about one's own feelings or the (imputed) personal shortcomings of your conversational partners.

And in case you guessed it was someone scolding Andy politely about having attacked JDW: WRONG!!! Here's the continuation: Anyone who fails to adhere to these rules is subject to being dropped from this project. Jim, consider this your first and only warning, as your comments above are a direct challenge to the very rule you have invoked. Or in plain English, don't come here to pick a fight with the boss.

If you're trying to get specific medication to third-world countries then building a hospital is a pretty inefficient way of doing it. A hospital needs a lot of capital expenditure and where poor people don't have access to transport then getting to a hospital is almost impossible. Many small clinics, which may already exist, are a much better way way of disseminating treatment.

"At least one?"[edit]

I am rather irked by this usage of "at least one" to imply "more than one"; I had already remarked it when I read that the Shroud of Turin had caused the conversion of "at least one" scientist.

New ape-human woman and little human ape unrecognized on CP?[edit]

Hi I'm new, but I've been an RW reader for awhile. Australopithecus sediba, the new human evolutionary link, was discovered in Africa (my understanding is that most of the undiscovered 'missing links' in evolution are likely in Africa, but that the geography and politics of the region make it incredibly difficult for discvoery):

When you talk to a biochemist or biologist at a university level these days about the "evolutionary debate" they're likely to laugh; after all if you are knowledgeable modern scientist, you know that the vast body of molecular, genetic, fossil, anatomical, and field biology evidence all points to the same thing -- that organisms evolved via natural selection and genetic drift over the last 3 billion years.

Are there any references to the day-age and framework viewpoints to the Genesis creation story on Conservapedia? Anyone? This "literalism" in a vacuum shit to support a YEC framework is getting out of hand. It seems the only biblical hermeneutic Andy and these YEC fundamentalists are capable of employing is EVERYTHING THE BIBLE SAYS THAT AGREES WITH ME IS READ "LITERALLY"/EVERYTHING ELSE IS ALLEGORICAL. In other words, Andy's faith isn't remotely informed by his reading of the bible, rather his reading of the bible is informed by his own ad hoc religion. He is a Christianist.

For what it's worth, JDWpianist has always been striking me as a kind of expat Jensen.

"Concerned Resident", women are more likely to be atheistic, feminist and liberal.

I maintain a complete mirror of the entire site on a local drive, so it's just a matter of a few finds and greps.

Well, I don't see how it's terribly significant, but the lack of Protestants on the Court is an interesting factoid. I was sure he was wrong, but I didn't realize both Roberts and Thomas are Catholic. I suppose there might well be some pressure to appoint a Protestant. Shouldn't be hard to find one, I hear they're quite popular. DickTurpis (talk) 18:38, 9 April 2010 (UTC)
I'm not all that familiar with the people who are on the court right now, but is the majority catholic because the majority of them come from the Northeast?

Well, that jazz musician did blame second hand smoking for his lung cancer...guess that settles it. — Sincerely, Neveruse / Talk / Block 18:12, 9 April 2010 (UTC)
Which I'm inclined to believe. That building didn't have much airflow going through it, and burning any kind of organic material (i.e. tobacco) produces hydrocarbons that can cause lung cancer if you breath too much of it. I love how Ed is such a frustrated man that he's willing to believe anything some corporate expert-for-hire tells him as long as he can use it to bash liberals and environmentalists. Does anyone really believe asbestos is good for you? TKEtoolshedFrag Out! 18:16, 9 April 2010 (UTC)
To be fair to Ed, he did specify asbestos removal, which I'm inclined to think id often unnecessary. As for second hand smoke, is there really anyone in the world who doesn't believe second hand smoke is harmful? The question only remains how harmful. It's cigarette smoke, plain and simple. "Cigarette smoke causes cancer" is one of those tautologies Andy like to go to when he needs to make a point about people denying obvious truths. I guess Ed didn't get the message. DickTurpis (talk) 18:45, 9 April 2010 (UTC)
But that's the thing. While the way society treats these dangerous things and what trade-offs need to be made can be debated, the science behind their danger is not "junk" by any definition. As for asbestos, the removal is often far worse than just leaving it up with a DON'T TOUCH sign. TKEtoolshedFrag Out! 18:49, 9 April 2010 (UTC)
And some people actually do debate the cigarette smoke-cancer link. They're all ex-lobbyists and other corporate types like Fred Singer and Steve Milloy, and conservatives and environmental reactionaries definitely pay attention to them and believe this crap. TKEtoolshedFrag Out! 18:51, 9 April 2010 (UTC)
I'm inclined to find Roy Castle's explanation plausible, but you can't be certain that his cancer wasn't caused by radon in his basement, asbestos in his attic, anything in between, a virus or any particulate. — Sincerely, Neveruse / Talk / Block 19:07, 9 April 2010 (UTC)

Yep. This is why I agree with the conspiracy that the Republicans basically threw the election by picking some old git that probably wouldn't be able to live through the term and a bimbo who is, frankly, dumb as a fucking moose, to back him up. The Bush years set the scene for a ton of shit, but people are idiots with a short term memory. So when the shit did come, Obama would be President, people would blame him and the Democratic Party and this would set the stage for at least 8 more years of Republican rule during a boom. One of the more interesting things I've read recently is that Obama, from the very begining should have branded this as "The Republican Recession", which it really is in all fairness. In the UK, Labour did a great job of riding on poor management by the previous Conservative government which got them through a good few years (their problem is that they were still doing it a full decade later), Obama would have been entitled to do the same trick given the circumstances in the US with the economy and the wars - Obama inherited a turd, so why are people blaming him for being unable to polish it? Well, because people are idiots, unfortunately. Scarlet A.pngsshole 20:04, 11 April 2010 (UTC)

The True Colors of Atheism[edit]

In Andy's world, the fact that Dawkins is threatening to have his Poopiness the Hole arrested is a sign of 'the true colors of atheism'img. I wonder what he calls Benny XVI allowing his little bugger boys to carry on molesting children? The true colors of Catholicism maybe? That said, I think it is a publicity stunt by Dawkins, but one geared towards highlighting the Pope's failure to do anything about abusive priests. And why shouldn't an atheist kick up a fuss, seeing as the religious mob prefer to keep quiet. --PsyGremlin話しなさい 12:51, 11 April 2010 (UTC)

There's potential for a legal shitefest over this, but I doubt it will go very far. As you say, publicity stunt. I note the hypocrisy of Andy calling anyone an 'anti-(x) bully' when he is violently anti-(various things) himself and bullies people into agreement in his little playground. Webbtje (talk) 13:09, 11 April 2010 (UTC)
Let's see: atheists want a man who is complicit in several child sexual abuse cases to stand before justice. If those are the true colors of atheism, that's fine by me. Must be that lack of absolute morality again. -- Nx / talk 15:20, 11 April 2010 (UTC)
Of course, the little fact that what TK said isn't actually true might also have some bearing on this. To be fair to him, though, the headline of the Times article is very badly worded, but simply reading the article itself would have told him this. 92.16.29.26 (talk) 18:07, 11 April 2010 (UTC)
Nx. I cannot say it any better than that. I'd probably say the same thing to the people who think it's a publicity stunt. Even if it is (and just part of Dawkins' "consiousness raising" crusade) then it's not exactly a deplorable one is it? Scarlet A.pngsshole 19:58, 11 April 2010 (UTC)
I've been very pissed about this utter lack of law enforcement response to these people with power raping children since he story broke in Boston, what, ten years ago? Cardinal Law got a sinecure in the Vatican - moving him beyond the purview of local cops. He moved rapists with dog collars from place to place to cover up what amounts to a conspiracy to make it ok for grown men to touch children in ways we all despise. So what if the grandstanders happen to be atheists? In greater Boston a movement formed to make their "church donations" to a separate body pending the "outcome"... not up on the latest details because I stopped killing trees a while back. ħumanUser talk:Human 03:10, 12 April 2010 (UTC)

Rob, TK, DMorris... Ken?[edit]

Good old Ken is offering his deep insightsimg (shorter section-only cap in the oversight image below) about Rob's antics on Wikipedia:

Wiki Humor: Abridged posting at Wikipedia on the talk page for their Conservapedia article: The gentlemen at a rather liberal wiki seem "to be pretty obsessed with Conservapedia and members seem to devote an inordinate number of edits to venting about CP or its members. That obsession seems to have drifted here a little. Conversely, I don't really see the same thing happening with Conservapedia editors." .
Translation: I think some people at a rather liberal wiki have "Conservapedia obsessive compulsive disorder". Perhaps, McMaster University will develop a course addressing this new disorder within their abnormal psychology curriculum. :)

I'd normally ignore Ken's public masturbation, but this is worth archiving since it adds to the list of Conservapedians who enjoy piling on on this. So, who will be next?

For extra fun, at least one of Ken's edits has actually been oversighted: Compare his visible editing spree with this now missing diff. --Sid (talk) 13:27, 11 April 2010 (UTC)

This coming from a man who obsessively picks up the red telephone to tell somebody how well his "My Experiences in regards to Homosexuality Obtained in the Third Stall from the Right in regards to the Men's Toilet next to the City Dump" are ranked on Google Outer Mongolia. --PsyGremlinParla! 13:45, 11 April 2010 (UTC)
I've been following the whole Wikipedia thing, and it's absolutely insane with extra stupid sauce. Especially since PCHS-NJROTC showed up and just sort of randomly started pushing the drama (while complaining how much they hate drama). Honestly, does Rob think he's accomplishing anything besides annoying all the sane editors? --Kels (talk) 15:23, 11 April 2010 (UTC)
I dunno what will happen officially in the article space, but Rob managed to completely drive CP's reputation on the talk page into the ground. This is epic failure of Conservapedia as a whole. It's obvious that they all see what's happening, and nobody tries to step in. On the contrary, they're cheering him on. You can't tell me that Ed or Geo don't know what's going on - they're both close to at least TK, after all. Their failure to control Rob is just as bad as PCHS-NJROTC's involvement. See if I ever assume good faith with any Conservapedian again. --Sid (talk) 15:59, 11 April 2010 (UTC)
I can just imagine if Rob followed through on his empty threats of Arbcom. There'd be multiple injuries from laughter and headdesk incidents alone. --Kels (talk) 16:08, 11 April 2010 (UTC)
This can only end in Rob being old to shut the F up. It's a nice demonstration of the reality-challenged CP mindset at work. Totnesmartin (talk) 16:22, 11 April 2010 (UTC)
So far, everybody coming in from the outside is actively ignoring it. My fear is that he'll get away with it, and maybe that his nonstop trolling will even be rewarded. --Sid (talk) 17:01, 11 April 2010 (UTC)
Well, they might not be commenting, but I doubt outsiders coming in are really looking at his mess and concluding that he's sane. DMorris in particular is transparently looking for attention and drama, and a quick look at his User Talk page shows this is nothing new for him. TK has been smart enough to only make one or two snipes and otherwise keep his distance, and Rob isn't exactly making himself look too stable. I doubt he's getting a lot of fans and supporters. --Kels (talk) 17:11, 11 April 2010 (UTC)
Good point. TK was really the only one who was smart enough to stay out of the spotlight once he fully realized that the WP rules wouldn't work in his favor. DMorris is either trolling or really doesn't have a firm grasp of what's been going on, and Rob tries to... to... I don't even know what he's trying to do, but this sentence from a recent post sums up his modus operandi well, I think: "The WP:DR, WP:BFAQ, WP:BLP issues are yet to addressed or in process; it's too early to attempt WP:CON on WP:NPOV." --Sid (talk) 21:20, 11 April 2010 (UTC)
I doubt the WP Admins will fall for Rob. From what I've seen, they've seen it before. I doubt they will block him, however, unless he starts editing an article lots. Šţěŗĭļė garbage bin 23:37, 11 April 2010 (UTC)

Bragging about the fact CP turns up first if you type in "Hollywood values" in the google search field is even more moronic than bragging about pageviews. At least the pageviews tell you something about people reading seeing articles. I also call deceit on this bit: "Click our entry and see why it is ranked number one by Google" yet the article tells me nothing about Google's algorithms, it's just a list of famous people who have died.

How can someone who went to college be so ignorant of how professorships work? Keegscee (talk) 20:21, 11 April 2010 (UTC)
In all fairness they don't sit the students down and explain the ranks to them. You go in to class and get introduced to Professor So-and-so, and Dr. Thing, how they titles are related to one another is not really a concern unless you are looking for a job and the titles are largely dependent on the particular university. Chicago says they use Senior Lecturer for the non-tenured equivalent of a Professor. Keep in mind he was working in a law firm and being a State Senator whilst simultaneously holding this lecturing job, it is not like he would have been a full faculty member. - π 08:21, 12 April 2010 (UTC)
This is still a story? The right wing could barely tolerate people looking into whether Bush Jr. went AWOL from the National Guard, yet they're parsing whether a word is capitalized in order, to what? To say Obama was only a Senior Lecturer at one of the finest educational institutions in the world instead of a big P Professor. Brilliang. Muy brilliang.

Evolution of language?[edit]

I was shaking my head in disbelief at Counterexamples to Evolution ... but then, meanwhile, I noticed that the article on Language admits "the most wide held belief is that language has evolutionary origins", and several of the language articles even say that some languages are "descended from" other languages!

Typical Andy "you don't have a clue" Schlafly. The so called Conservative party ticks most of the 'boxes' on CP's list of Liberal positions and practices. Andy "open your mind" Schlafly has been informed of this numerous times, but his having an open mind means it goes in one ear and straight out the other. What ever way the election turns out, going by Andy "faith and logic" Schlafly's definitions, it will be an overwhelming endorsement of 'liberality'. Auld Nick (talk) 17:55, 11 April 2010 (UTC)

1) The Liberal Party haven't been in power since the early 1920s, and even then that was a coalition.
2) By American standards, the British Conservative Party today are practically socialists.
3) "Lose power in England," - England don't have self rule, we're part of the United Kingdom, you ingrate.
4) The Conservative Party was four points ahead less than a week ago. Not exactly a red state/blue state divide.

Apparently, according to the all wise S Fry esq:
But you might say, when you meant Britain, you say, "Oh yeah, you know, the English, er . . . are very good at, blah, blah," and you actually mean Britain, although, y'know. And the fact is, it was perfectly normal to say "England" for all of Britain right up until the 1930s, when Scottish nationalism arose and they got rather offended by it. Benjamin Disraeli signed the Treaty of Berlin, er, as the Prime Minister of England. He meant . . . He meant Great Britain technically. The one part stood for the whole. Er, so, the book . . . The Oxford History of England is actually the history of the British Isles.

American Knowledge of England[edit]

Okay, here's what the typical American knows about England:

  • England -- ruled by a Queen who has a lot of screwed up kids, one of whom married a very pretty lady who got killed. (We all felt bad for you all then.) You helped us win World War II. People talk funny.
    • Typical English people: the aforementioned Queen, most of the bad guys from Star Wars, whoever is your PresidentPrime Minister now, the guys in funny hats in front of the Queen's house.
    • What it looks like: London and castles.
  • Scotland: People talk even funnier. The men wear dresses (but they don't call them dresses.)
    • Typical Scottish people: Sean Connery, Groundskeeper Willie from The Simpsons, the Loch Ness Monster, bagpipers.
    • What it looks like: Mountains, castles, a big lake with a monster.
  • Northern Ireland: Things blow up a lot. We're really not sure why, except it involves an argument about God between people who talk funny.
    • Typical Northern Irish people: Either getting blown up or causing people to get blown up, leprechauns, (do they play the bagpipers there, too?)
    • What it looks like: Explosions.
  • Wales: ???? (Presumably, people talk funny.)

MDB (talk) 13:46, 12 April 2010 (UTC)

The typical American also finds the terms "England," and "Britain," or "UK," interchangeable, as above. SJ Debaser 17:05, 12 April 2010 (UTC)
Aren't "Britain" and "UK" interchangeable? I thought so, and the atheistic eurotrolls at WP seem to agree. — Sincerely, Neveruse / Talk / Block 17:12, 12 April 2010 (UTC)
If we're being pedantic about it, Britain (as in Great Britain) is the island which England, Wales and Scotland are on, while the United Kingdom refers to the monarchical union between Great Britain and Northern Ireland, hence "United Kingdom of...". Britain and UK are fairly interchangeable however, though technically meaning different things. England and Britain aren't, as England is a constituent country making up Great Britain, albeit the largest one. SJ Debaser 17:18, 12 April 2010 (UTC)

Besides the fact that MDB is now off me and Human's Xmas card list (look you, boyo), for not knowing a thing about Wales, here's a brief summary. The United Kingdom is made up of 4 races: The Welsh, who pray on their knees and their neighbours; the Scots, who keep the Sabbath and everything else they can lay their hands on; the Irish, who don't know what the hell they want, but are willing to die for it; and the English, who consider themselves to be self-made men, thereby saving God one helluva responsibility. --PsyGremlinZungumza! 17:46, 12 April 2010 (UTC)

(unDent) Just to clarify -- I was speaking of the typical American's knowledge. I am an atypical American. I know a smidge about Wales:

  • It's to the west of England proper.
  • The Heir Apparent to the throne is Prince of Wales, due to an agreement that's centuries old. And I seem to remember he's expected to be able to speak Welsh.
  • You like really long names, and are the reason "w" is a vowel sometimes and an old friend manages to pronounce that has only L's and N's for consonants to begin with an "eff". MDB (talk) 17:59, 12 April 2010 (UTC)

To be less pedantic, the Great Britain (and GBR & GB) thing is more complicated than that. As well as being simply the island, Great Britain is commonly and officially used to mean the UK in numerous international agreements and frameworks along with things like the Olympic Team GB. It's an historical term for what is now the UK and still widely used. Likewise Britain - and I don't think Britain is ever correctly used as a short form for Great Britain. The citizens of the UK are British and we have British passports. So, at least, it is perfectly correct to refer to the UK as Britain and it is also accurate, in many contexts, to refer to the UK as Great Britain, GBR or GB.

A conservative Militant Tendency?[edit]

My gob is smacked. "Fourth best university in the world" is stretching it a bit but "among the top ten in Europe" is pretty uncontroversial. What a staggering example of Schalfly's intellectual inadequacy: "I don't like the facts therefore they're not facts. Oh, and I'll stop anyone ever adding the actual facts to my encycloblog." Doesn't he realise that he's acting like a stupid, arrogant, ignorant dickhead (I was going to add "with the manners of a pig" but that would be offensive to porcines everywhere) because the facts can easily be checked by anyone with a reading age of 8? Doesn't he realise that this degree of moronicness (is that a word?) totally kills any credibility his pet project ever had?

His behaviour is what you might expect of someone who wanted to infiltrate American Conservatism and destroy it from the inside. Is Schlafly American conservatism's Derek Hatton? Is CP its Militant Tendency? Is Andy really a pothead liberal with a promiscuous gay lifestyle? Is CP often so completely dumb because he's stoned out of his mind? Too late, too much wine... But surely this is a logical explanation for CP? Also, please note, the hypothesis is testable: if anyone has ever seen Schalfly in a bathhouse, high on dope, railing against Obama's trimming and capitulating, please say so. Photographic evidence will help to convince sceptics. The Real James Brown (talk) 22:49, 12 April 2010 (UTC)

You're not the first to suspect Andy of being a deep cover liberal, but unfortunately Andy is probably sincere in as much as he can be. He's utterly bonkers, and unfortunately for him it's not in any way that would indicate genius. Perhaps he'd strap on some explosives and wander on to crowded bus if he weren't so comfortable in his funny little blog world, and it's unlikely his mother would give him the money for that kind of thing. Right now she's probably just glad that Andy has a hobby to keep himself occupied. --ConcernedresidentAsk me about your mother 23:34, 12 April 2010 (UTC)

A friend of mine is an undergrad there.

SJ Debaser 13:21, 13 April 2010 (UTC)
It isn't atheistic, that's the thing - it's just secular, and prides itself on being the first UK university to be. There's a prominent Christian society as well as a very prominent Islamic one - sadly the latter is mainly prominent these days because of the underpants bomber. There's also a big Sikh soc, etc etc etc. Intrinsically atheistic my arse, it just doesn't stick crosses up all over the place or any silliness like that - the only thing that's atheistic about it is Bentham's influence over it in its formative years (and indeed his influence over the cloisters, embalmed, staring out of a box). Then again I suppose that anywhere that isn't Liberty university is atheistic in Arsefly's pocket book of standards. Webbtje (talk) 16:15, 13 April 2010 (UTC)

The Master of English[edit]

Everytime I see something like this, I just have to chuckle. "a notoriously and frequently ticketed driver crashed fatally head-on into a car turning left in front of his Porsche." Spot the error. Now, if you spotted the error, give yourself one point. If you spot the extra irony, give yourself another point. If you have two points, congratulations, you are better than Andy. I will say in his defense though, he did fix it right away. SirChuckBPenguin Knight, First Class 07:30, 13 April 2010 (UTC)

Even after the fix, it is still a very awkward sentence. Keegscee (talk) 08:01, 13 April 2010 (UTC)
I can't really spot it, so I'm point-less. But regardless, there has to be a dozen ways of taking all that information and putting it into a technically coherent sentence, and that isn't one of them. Scarlet A.pngsshole 10:48, 13 April 2010 (UTC)

CP News Feed[edit]

You just gotta love the Conservapedia news feed. An endless source of lulz for numerous reasons- it shows, on a daily basis, that Andy still believes this stuff (and that TK's willing to go along with it), it shows how CP manipulate tragedies such as death to their own ends, it shows the blatant selective bias inherent in their project, and it shows their plain stupidity and ignorance of what they're actually talking about.
Take for example the news entry on the Conservative Party from TK. It's not fooling anyone: everyone knows, even Andy, (as he has said countless times himself that we're all socialists in the UK) that by US standards the British Conservative Party are roughly at the same position on the political spectrum as the American Democrats. TK ends the item with "the Conservatives lead Labour by 7%," even though about 10 days ago it was 4%, 2 days ago it was 8% (which they have on their mainpage) and now it's 7%.
But more than anything I just love how it's degenerated to a radical right-wing fundie tabloid of a website. A lot of news items end with "maybe he/she/it/they/Obama are planning on doing this/that/the other/terrorism???" while others just end with "why can't liberals admit deceit???" Andy's really doing more to destroy his own website than anyone here possibly could; anyone coming to visit Conservapedia will just laugh at the stuff it has on the front page, and any sincere editor willing to overlook that will run afoul of Andy or TK within his first 3 edits. Thank you Andy, for making our jobs so much easier. SJ Debaser 12:35, 13 April 2010 (UTC)

We don't really have a "job". We are not here to discredit Conservapedia for the good of mankind, or to show to the public how Conservapedia is preposterous, arrogant and extremely biased; this is rather obvious to anyone not entirely devoid of common sense, whether he is Liberal or Conservative. There is no danger whatsoever coming from Conservapedia.
No matter what Conservapedians say, their website will always remain a very, very, very minor Internet phenomenon, and it has more or less the same chances of overtaking Wikipedia than I have of becoming President of the United States... of Epsilon Schlaflii IV, in the Andromeda Galaxy.
Conservapedia has no credibility, no influence, no future. The bona-fide conservapedians are probably much less than half of the (few) visitors of the website. We are not here to destroy Conservapedia, but to laugh at it. --Maquissar (talk) 12:52, 13 April 2010 (UTC)
The WIGOs are partly so we can laugh and partly, I'd like to think, so that any parents who let Andy teach their kids can see just how fucking insane the man is. I don't think is, or that there should be, any kind of agenda of bringing CP down; hell, Andy and his bunch of sycophants are going to run it into the ground sooner or later anyway. I see no point in actively trying to bring a website down when it doesn't necessarily do any harm (particularly as I suspect the number of homeschoolers actually involved in the project in any way is pretty low).Webbtje (talk) 13:22, 13 April 2010 (UTC)

We know how you feel about Conservapedia. To be as big as Wikipedia has never been a goal. For that to happen they would need millions of pages that reflect nothing; obscure bands, cartoons, sports, door knobs. You can deny Conservapedia has traction but you are obsessed with Conservapedia. You fear them, you loathe them, you face-palm, you desk-head, you monitor them, you write about them, you hide from them. Let's face it, they are leading where it counts- Top Conservative Websites. You can't stop them but you can bitch, bitch, bitch. You can make fun of them in comparison to Wikipedia but your site in comparison has only 4000 content pages. You are nothing, Conservapedia is something. You're juvenile, half-a-brains who think differently, desperate I might add.

Thing is we have a free discussion atmosphere which CP can only maintain on secret forums (we hide from them?). We're a mob, a fairly big mob, (there's many more of us than CPites) who all feel similarly - not identically - about a number of subjects. Unlike CP we have no intention of creating an encyclopedia full of Ed stubs or even of Wikipedia articles. There's no mighty one who's beliefs must be pandered to at the cost of all reason no matter what. I don't think we make fun of them "compared to Wikipedia" - we just make fun of them. Aww - I give up! Cp is such a laughing stock even among those who should be its biggest supporters - the Xtian right that we are almost redundant - but as long as there's lulz to be gained we'll be here. yummy Toast&  honey(or marmalade) 19:21, 13 April 2010 (UTC)
EC - "To be as big as Wikipedia has never been a goal." -> Yes it has. Aschlafly frequently predicts that Conservapedia will usurp Wikipedia's position.
"For that to happen they would need millions of pages that reflect nothing; obscure bands, cartoons, sports, door knobs." -> If you had the workforce to do that, you would do it without hesitation. You're not smaller out of some stylistic preference. You're smaller because your mission is gibberish and you destroyed your userbase.
"You can deny Conservapedia has traction but you are obsessed with Conservapedia." -> We like your site because your stupidity is funny. That's it. But even now people are getting bored of you.
"You fear them, you loathe them, you face-palm, you desk-head, you monitor them, you write about them, you hide from them." -> We don't fear you. You have no influence or common sense. How exactly are we hiding from you? You aren't blocked on this site, but we are all blocked on CP, usually several times over. Who is hiding in this scenario?
"Let's face it, they are leading where it counts- Top Conservative Websites" -> I can't even mock this part. It would be like punching a child.
"You are nothing, Conservapedia is something." -> We have a community of people who like each other. You have a clusterfuck of random bullying, paranoia and mindgames. I'm perfectly happy with this situation.
"You're juvenile, half-a-brains who think differently, desperate I might add." -> I don't speak whatever language this is.
"Keep on laughing, that never held back the conservative message." -> See also Sarah Palin. Mei (talk) 19:24, 13 April 2010 (UTC)

It's the kids I feel sorry for - the ones whose brains are abused by Schlafly, and indeed by their parents who pay that man to tell lies to their children. Maybe CP has become a joke even to the extreme right in the USA but there are other people who are just as mad, even if they seem a bit more sane. Ann Coulter...? I'd seen her name on CP and other extremist websites but I knew nothing about her until the last few days. My god, the stuff she writes is poisonous.

Why ...[edit]

... is it worthy of mentionimg that the supreme court is without a military vet? It's not just CP that grizzles about it, I've seen it several places on t'web. yummy Toast&  honey(or marmalade) 15:23, 9 April 2010 (UTC)

Seems kind of odd. My understanding is that supreme court may rule on military related matters, but it's not as if they're the ones deciding whether or not the US would go to war. It's odd to see the wingnuts playing up the veteran card, given that so many of their prominent numbers have the kind of military background that anyone could pick-up by renting a copy of Rambo III. --ConcernedresidentAsk me about your mother 16:05, 9 April 2010 (UTC)
I'd daresay its the latest right-wing whining point, and impervious to logic.
FoxNews/Talk Radio Conservative: "There's not going to be a veteran on the court! Obama's an evil libb-burr-ull because he's not appointing a veteran!"
Thinking liberal: "Of the nine current justices, six were appointed by Republicans. Only the retiring Stevens is a veteran, and he was appointed by Gerald Ford. This was never an issue till now."
FoxNews/Talk Radio Conservative: "There's not going to be a veteran on the court! Obama's an evil libb-burr-ull because he's not appointing a veteran! Why do libb-burr-ulls hate the military?!?!?!"
Thinking liberal: "But but but..." Gives up, goes off to have a gay marriage and an abortion MDB (talk) 16:12, 9 April 2010 (UTC)


More seriously, the Supremes have historically been rather deferential to the Executive Branch and Congress in military and foreign policy affairs. For instance, I've heard it said that, when cases considering Constitutionality of a military came before them, they always found a way to avoid taking the case, the assumption was that, if they did take it, they might have no choice but to say "involuntary servitude, unConstitutional", and since those generally come up during wars, they just didn't want to go there. I don't see that there's that big a need for a Justice to be a vet -- of the three branches of government, the Judicial branch is the least likely to interact with the military. MDB (talk) 16:24, 9 April 2010 (UTC)
I imagine the number of lawyers/judges who have been in the military is pretty small, as it's been about 35 years since we've had widespread military mobilization. The reason most post-war presidents have been veterans is not because we demanded it of them but because just about every male in the country had served in the military at the time. Stevens is the last vet on the bench because he is the last WWII era justice. DickTurpis (talk) 16:32, 9 April 2010 (UTC)
Valid point, except the Vietnam generation is reaching the age where they've got the experience to be potential nominees for the Court. Of course, serving on the Court almost certainly means a college education (a law degree isn't legally required to be on the Court, but a President who tried to nominate a non-attorney would be out of his mind), and if you were in college during the Vietnam era, you were probably getting draft deferments.
Personally, I thought John Edwards would have made a good justice, but his name is far too tainted for that. Or Hillary Clinton, because half of the American conservative movement would immediately have massive coronaries upon hearing her name even suggested for the job, but she's busy being SecState. MDB (talk) 16:44, 9 April 2010 (UTC)
The Vietnam generation is quickly passing the age where they'd be nominees for anything. Someone who was 18 in 1968 is 60 now, which is a bit on the elderly side even for the Supreme Court (50 looks to be a more typical age recently). DickTurpis (talk) 14:31, 10 April 2010 (UTC)
That's a great idea! HRC for SCOTUS! For so many good reasons, including your population-thinning one. ħumanUser talk:Human 03:46, 10 April 2010 (UTC)
I would imagine that any 'vet' who becomes a high-ranking lawyer will most likely have more right-wing views. (OK, so I'm stereotyping but it's probably true) So demanding a 'vet' is like asking for another Republican nominee which obviously makes perfect sense. Of course over at CP they don't think these things out for themselves they just latch onto some loonie blogger and it's suddenly an issue.  Lily Inspirate me. 18:09, 9 April 2010 (UTC)

On the bright side, I reckon we can infer from his complaints that Andy feels himself unqualified to be a judge, as he is not a military vet (so far as I am aware). One less thing to worry about: "Judge Schlafly".--WJThomas (talk) 18:13, 9 April 2010 (UTC)

I believe the other two are Jews, yes. As far as an atheist being nominated... they were fine when the atheist was Robert Bork.

Hey Ed, I dare you to take a chance on inviting an RW editor over to make supervised edits to the homosexuality, atheism, and evolution articles in order to inject some balance; and keep Ken out of it. If the "student panel" can't do it, someone else needs to. Let that someone be you. Ken's writing is absolutely awful, the points he attempts making puerile and often unsupportable, and the quotemining tired and predictable. I won't remove anything substantive, just improve what's capable of being improved and provide a mainstream response to the creationist, homophobic, xenophobic, irrational, etc., stuff.

The current version of the "essay" basically boils down to "once you know the sex of the child, the parents can attach to him/her more like a person". Let me tell you a funny story (which will undoubtedly be lumped in the "cool story, bro" category by random passers-by): A while ago, I was looking at a machine-translated Wikipedia article on guard dogs which turned out to be surprisingly legible, even when Finnish is notoriously resistant to automatic translation by computers. Finnish language has no articles, so the translator software had to take a few guesses. I particularly liked this phrase: "Some breeds are strong enough to drive even the wolf away". Instead of speaking of "a wolf", the article spoke of "the wolf", as if there was some specific wolf that all guard dogs are compared against; a mighty feral animal in the wilderness that only the strongest of guard dog breeds dare to challenge. A simple article change can add a lot of personality to things, even to animals! ...I don't know what point I was chasing, but I thought this was insightful. --wwwwolf (barks/growls) 09:36, 14 April 2010 (UTC)

I prefer Ed's take on cp:Lolita. After writing his usual two sentence review, Andy had to come in and make the article suitable for families. Andy removed all references to paedophilia, which given the story is a bit like removing all references to cars from an article discussing Too Fast, Too Furious.
