More censorship for Ed.[edit]

I was poking around the P&T article and I stumbled on Poor PeterBr if you read his contribs you will find nothing at all objectionable, because Kendoll scorched the earth that he wrote on. His crime, if you will recall, was asking that the evolution article be opened up and rewritten because it was difficult to read. --Opcn (talk) 09:02, 13 October 2011 (UTC)

i know this has been said before[edit]

but i really wish that vandals would knock it off. Sure its fun watching the mad scramble when someone blanks a few dozen pages or inserts something witty. But I personally get so much more joy out of watching them add absurd material and fuck eachother over for a tiny bit of perceived power all by themselves. Call it schaudenfreude. It is. joyaBAD KITTY! 22:52, 13 October 2011 (UTC)

I agree, except for the part where you said vandalism was a little bit fun to watch. Vandals suck. Phiwum (talk) 23:00, 13 October 2011 (UTC)
Vandalism is nature's way of saying you shouldn't have driven off all those sysops, Andy. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 23:12, 13 October 2011 (UTC)
Yeah most vandals don't provide much entertainment value. Parodist generally don't either for that matter. No the real lulz goodness is watching genuine editors twist reality to suit their warped ideology. Then watch the sparks fly when worldviews collide. --Inquisitor (talk) 23:16, 13 October 2011 (UTC)
1. Yes, it's getting hard to add better parody to CP than the rubbish that the few remaining genuine editors add themselves.
2. Is KenDoll a deep parodist? Acquire total power over the site, write creepy pages about weird subjects, protect them so no-one else can edit or delete them and perma-block editors who complain about his behaviour... A pretty good strategy for destroying CP. The Real James Brown (talk) 23:39, 13 October 2011 (UTC)
Yeah, every second Andy spends reverting vandalism is a second he isn't thinking of his next Conservative Insight™ for our amusement. (Is it just me or has CP been really boring lately?) --Night Jaguar (talk) 00:02, 14 October 2011 (UTC)
(EC)Actually it's a pretty shitty strategy. No sober minded person would spend 18+ hours a day, 365 days a year, for over 3 years just to bring down CP. Nobody. And even if it's all parody, it's parody that meets with Andy's approval. --Inquisitor (talk) 00:06, 14 October 2011 (UTC)
I really wish he was a deep cover parodist. But with all the pre cp stuff it confuses me as to how. Im more inclined to go with the theory of he believes it and is quite sick. His antics have been repetitive for so long that they bore. I get more entertainment from the dynamic of the other players. In particular uncle ed trying to impress the refugees over at aw without crossing the line far enough to lose his precious little banhammer at cp: and karajou defending all comers against SENIOR sysops even though he has long been aware of and concerned about kens madness. Which i can only assume he does because even though the status quo is truly fucked up it benefits his ego to be a large fish in a teeny tiny pond. Showing a non unified front to that status quo means he may have to notice its dysfunction thus meaning he may have to give up that small modicum of comfort and power. WUhich when it comes down to it is one of the main problems with conservatism in general. But yeah. Vandals aggravate me. I want the real thing. Rant over now. joyaBAD KITTY! 00:26, 14 October 2011 (UTC) — Unsigned, by: Scream!! / talk / contribs 00:34, 14 October 2011 (UTC)

Less stupidity and more not being used to Ken's "International Man/Woman/Group of Mystery" act, I'd say. IP Guy, don't fall for Ken's "YOU WILL NEVER KNOW!!!!!!!" act - he's been keeping it up pretty much since day one (and before that on other sites), and the other CP sysops merely humor him in public even though they have known the truth for years, too. --Sid (talk) 00:42, 13 October 2011 (UTC)

I never read any of Terry's claptrap. But I do enjoy when he gets into heated debates with people who leave comments.

Andy's homework methods WIGO[edit]

Seriously? He's using the dictionary for homework? I'm kind of surprised, because he hasn't spent a lot of time on that project; moreover, just about all the entries are clear parody that I a variety of vandals and trolls have added. B♭maj7 (talk) Member of the Kara Duhe fan club since 2010 00:17, 14 October 2011 (UTC)

I think this means he's too lazy even to put in the token effort he used to make devising homework questions. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 00:56, 14 October 2011 (UTC)
Andy's demonstrated his laziness many times. A slacker attitude is his only admirable trait, as far as I can tell. --Simple (talk) 01:25, 14 October 2011 (UTC)
I'm pretty sure Andy is NOT using the Conservative Dictionary Project for homework. In the link from the WIGO he mentions the Study Guide, which I presume means World History Study Guide to 1648img. Thus the parodist who invented the Conservative Dictionary doesn't have these students' (mis)education on his conscience (that's purely on Andy and their parents/guardians). --Night Jaguar (talk) 02:38, 14 October 2011 (UTC)
Serves me right for reading the WIGO and not the actual CP page it links to. Who the fuck was the idiot who put that in with no good reason? B♭maj7 (talk) Member of the Kara Duhe fan club since 2010 02:42, 14 October 2011 (UTC)
Schlafly is as bad as my instructor for my American Government class last year. Uhhhh, I don't feel like writing questions and then dragging my lazy arse out here to grade them, so please read the study guide, memorize a few, recollect your thoughts, quiz yourself on them all for as much time as you have, which should be more than plenty proivded you are all homeschoolers who have no soical life (much like me!) and your parents are paying for this crap, so you better study hard and earn those nine or ten out of ten marks I gave you.
An interesting note: the students are having a history bee? Is this the crap Schlafly does in his basement of something?--Colonel Sanders (talk) 11:07, 14 October 2011 (UTC)
My elecotromagnetic field theory professor in college wrote the textbook we used. His homework assignments were "pick ten questions from the end of the chapter." MDB (talk) 12:29, 14 October 2011 (UTC)
Question from somebody who never worked with a study guide, but only with kinda-sorta-like-a-textbook stuff, is this how study guides are supposed to be?
The way Andy describes the process is pretty much how I learn vocabs and Chinese signs for years now, just without the weird procentage stuff. --ʤɱ digital native 13:55, 14 October 2011 (UTC)
The study guides that I prepare for my students tend to be comprised of questions, not just factoids and definitions. The questions are meant to guide their studying. See what I did there? B♭maj7 (talk) Member of the Kara Duhe fan club since 2010 13:58, 14 October 2011 (UTC)
Ah, so you do the stuff in study guides you should have done already in class. --ʤɱ soviet 14:08, 14 October 2011 (UTC)
And with "you" I mean general you and not specific personal "you". --ʤɱ secularist 14:09, 14 October 2011 (UTC)
Stuff that was covered in class, readings that weren't covered in class, all of it is fair game for an exam. Exam questions are often hinted at very sharply in, or even reproduced from, the questions in the study guide. Rewards those who use the damn thing after all the trouble that went into making it....B♭maj7 (talk) Member of the Kara Duhe fan club since 2010 14:20, 14 October 2011 (UTC)
Have you guys noticed the gem that is Andy's comment on the (excellent) answer to question 7 hereimg? --84.114.206.68 (talk) 23:25, 14 October 2011 (UTC)

OK, but the "shade of grey" approach gets tiresome. It's why I stopped reading the Economist. Nearly every article was a "truth is somewhere in between the two extremes" type of story.

I think this sums up Schlafly's entire world view. Everything is polarised into a complete dichotomy; it fits perfectly with his "you're either with us or against us, dirty liberals" mindset. άλφαΤαλκ 03:18, 16 October 2011 (UTC)

Sure Ken, how about even more national stereotypes you just googled?[edit]

[1]img Oh, Ken, what many Europeans would really like to do is take our brand new eurofighters, tell the OWS demonstrators to get out of the way and bomb those bankers that caused this shit to hell and back. Just my input from a real German that lives in Germany. --ʤɱ sinner 21:28, 14 October 2011 (UTC)

It's like watching a six year old try to talk about the economy. If youze is lazy, people no give you money. But Germans, dey work good so dey have lots of money. Greek people is lazy, dats why theyz haz trouble. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 22:11, 14 October 2011 (UTC)
WTF is the idiot talking about? How the fuck is the USA going to bail Europe out? What with, more Chinese money? --Longbow (talk) 00:04, 15 October 2011 (UTC)
And why would the US bail "the Europeans" (Eurozone? EU? Continental? Schengen? Help!) out? If Europe would have massive inflation due to pumping money into Greece to save their asses, that would be great for America, people drop the Euro, switch back to dollar, a bit of deflation for the dollar, people have more money in their pockets and the US has some jobs again. But seriously now, the original source has some points, the term "chain reaction" might be something to consider here, but they fail to see that this would not be a transatlantic problem but an international one. Also by the time Greece would default we would probably already nationalize everything and try another economical system… it's not like we haven't done that before. --ʤɱ constructivist 00:54, 15 October 2011 (UTC)
Anyway a Greek default would be a disaster for France and the UK, but probably survivable for Germany. Where do you live in Germany? --Longbow (talk) 01:01, 15 October 2011 (UTC)

She also got enjoyment from simple things in life, like electric pencil sharpers. Europe why are you so different?--Mikalosa (talk) 12:09, 15 October 2011 (UTC)

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────Because many of we Europeans long ago threw of the shackles of outdated religious belief systems and learned to become fre thinking individuals. In the process we learned that the world, even it's most mundane pieces, is an endlessly fascinating and enjoyable place. An electric pencil sharpener is far from simple if you are being honest, it is an amazing thing that science has allowed us to create. The fact you find it simple and her enjoyment of it hilarious says a lot more about you than it does about her. Oldusgitus (talk) 12:41, 15 October 2011 (UTC)

Just to drag this back on track, I think it's wonderful that in the abscence of any intelligence on CP, Ken has been reduced to providing the economic posts on CP as well as informing us about the ills of bestiality. It's just another step towards Kendollopedia, where ALL content is provided by Ken, as ALL articles are locked. --PsyGremlinSpeak! 13:59, 15 October 2011 (UTC)

The Inquisition wasn't that bad...[edit]

after all, "torture was used by virtually all civil authorities in that time, usually as a threat to discourage lying by witnesses (perjury). Torture could be applied only once and could not endanger life or limb."img Glorious. Frankly, I don't know too much about that time period, and I'm sure the world history lectures have come up before, but the main problem I see with this piece is the sort-of argumentum ad populum as a justification for torture. Not to mention that even if torture is "only applied once and can't endanger you," I can't imagine it's a very pleasant experience... if we only waterboard/wall you once, it's still problematic. άλφαΤαλκ 03:53, 15 October 2011 (UTC)

"Homosexuality" is an identity position, "Men who have sex with men" describes a behavior.

This might be an inprovement[edit]

I think the reasoning might actually be a moderation of the butt secks be ebil "thought" of many on the right.
Consider: The famous "clobber passage" from Romans1 wherein it describes that one should be true to one's nature; if one's nature is to be ghey then to have sexual relations with an woman would be agin such nature and worng (sin)...hence the "sin" in Romans1 isn't that ghey men have sex but that there are (were) idolaters who (as a matter of worshiping their idol) would have teh butt secks with men; completely against their nature (as straight men). 21:41, 15 October 2011 (UTC) C®ackeЯ

Autumn folliage[edit]

A new dishonest questionimg for which I have an honest answer. The green was it for most of our evolutionary history, so other colors are striking, additionally one of the real advantages trichromic primates like ourselves had was finding ripe fruit and finding the color red very attractive. When the season comes to an end the plants export nitrogenous compounds from the leaves (keeping them alive while rescuing their nutritional content) and in the process they pump in Anthocyanins to maintain ionic balance. With the sharp change in coloration away from one that mammals have evolved to ignore and towards one that sighted mammals depend on to find fruit we find ourselves very drawn to the foliage. End of story. --Opcn (talk) 15:34, 13 October 2011 (UTC)

Many trees and bushes produce their fruits and seeds in the autumn, so if you're drawn to a forest with autumn foliage you get to find the hazel nuts, the walnuts, the hawthorn berries, the sweet chestnuts. You can eat them now or store some for the winter. If you're a farmer you get to the beech mast, the achorns, the horse chestnuts etc that you can feed to livestock.

Ofcourse the above applies only to wild trees and bushes, many garden trees and bushes have been selectively bred for autumn foliage. I'm not Jesus (talk) 09:27, 14 October 2011 (UTC)

The way I see it, when man came up with the idea of beauty, he had to choose from the set of things that actually exist - and since it was a long time ago it was likely natural things. So the fact that something out there in nature happens to be the thing that humans commonly define as beautiful doesnt seem surprising.

Andy's latest reasoning: "No evolutionary explanation exists for something beautiful that appeared before any creature existed to appreciate the beauty."img That's right, folks, beauty existed before living things = Goddidit. I'll throw a bone and assume by "creatures", he means mammalian creatures. AndyToad.gifNorsemanCyser Melomel 02:46, 16 October 2011 (UTC)

And the responseimg. άλφαΤαλκ 03:09, 16 October 2011 (UTC)

Finding the same objects aesthetically beautiful also enhances group solidarity. Those who do not like what the rest of the group likes become socially deviant which reduces their chances of survival. What we find aesthetically good and bad is strongly influenced by our culture.

Liking autumn foliage may help us to survive if that gets us to look for useful resources in autumn woodlands. As a previous poster mentioned liking red autumn colours may be a by-product of something else. We like the colour red because many ripe fruits are red and our pre hominid ancestors ate a lot of fruit, ripe fruits are also sometimes yellow as are autumn leaves. Even for those of us who no longer get useful resources from autumn woodlands liking what other people like helps us to be accepted in our group. So once something like appreciation for autumn foliage has become part of our nature evolution can maintain it even when there is no clear present advantage.

TerryH: At least he's consistent![edit]

I wasn't in a highly productive/creative mood tonight, so I finally did one of the more mind-numbing projects I always wanted to do: Checking if our stereotype of TerryH (obsessed with spamming links to his site and with fanboying about Atlas Shrugged) is true.

I grabbed his last 100 edits (covering the time from September 4 until today) and checked which ones are about Atlas Shrugged and which ones are linkspam.

And guess what, he didn't do anything besides these two things. At all. 55 linkspam edits (including a few edits where he "merely" edited/fixed his linkspam posts), 45 Atlas Shrugged edits. That's it.

Though I guess that his actual article content is at least more family friendly than Ken's bestiality orgy... --Sid (talk) 21:50, 15 October 2011 (UTC)

As usual the data is manipulated[edit]

Of course Ken is attempting to claim that the greater the percentage of atheists, the higher the unemploymentimg, and uses a biased sample of three states to "prove" his point. Of course if we use three states in the Bible Belt (Alabama, Mississippi, and Georgia) who are among the worst when it comes to "the teaching of evolution" according to one of Ken's links, and among the least percentage of citizens with "no religion" (2nd, 4th, and 13th respectively and thus among the most religious); then we compare them to Washington and Oregon, his "conclusion" falls flat on its face. Indeed when we compare Washington and Oregon to the Carolinas (5th and 9th when it comes to percentage of religious according the sources Ken cites), the two "atheist states" do better, how does he account for this? Of course you will never hear any of these pesky facts on CP; facts that took five minutes to research. Facts are suppressed when they challenge dogma there, because they do not right to support the truth, only their own unsupported biases. --BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 14:32, 17 October 2011 (UTC)

North Dakota is one of the best educated states out there, It's also a state with easy to access oil in hospitable places and low tax rates.

All the Petroleum Geologists behind the economic growth are going to be either evolutionists or old earth creationists.

In fairness (and I hate to say this, but I did the calculation, and I can't supress data now that I know it - otherwise, we're no better than them), I did a quick calc of the correlation between Church Attendance and Unemployment Rate, by State, and found a slight negative correlation (-0.051466), which suggests that the two move ever-so-slightly opposite of each other, although they are essentially uncorrelated. But, with such a small sample size and by not controlling for other demographics, it is essentially meaningless. Also, DC, California, and Nevada screw up the data, since they have very low Church Attendance, and very high Unemployment.
So, my conclusion: there is no significant relationship between Church Attendance and Unemployment, at least not without control for other factors. Take from it what you will. Carlaugust (talk) 18:16, 17 October 2011 (UTC)

Well I have my doubts about Rex tbh but it's the claim that he is the representative of the student board that makes this quite fun to watch.

I'm somewhat surprised to read RB had been approached by multiple students. I'd always assumed the kind of people who weren't paradoists who signed up for his courses or were forced to, were the kind of people who wouldn't doubt the great Andy (or at least wouldn't mention it to anyone) even if he made clear mistakes or was completely inconsistent and illogical in his marking. Of course perhaps RB wasn't approached by anyone, they just knew no one would contradict them and Andy wouldn't check. Nil Einne (talk) 11:11, 17 October 2011 (UTC)
I don't know how he could have been approached by anyone without it being out in the open when CP mail has been disabled for months.

Ah makes it sound like RB did just make it up. But that's even funnier then, I'm guessing Andy isn't going to realise that since he (or whoever) disabled email, it's even less likely RB was approached. Although it seems at least one student does like RB [2]img [3]img although I do wonder if [4]img is a genuine student. Perhaps they really did 'approach' RB it's just that they're all parodists communicating offsite, or may be there's only like 2 or 3 people involved. Nil Einne (talk) 12:33, 18 October 2011 (UTC)

Well, presumably Catholics would lose since a pilgrimage isn't an obligation of the Christian faith. On the other hand, the Hajj is only mandatory for those who can make it, and only once in their life.

The school shouldn't be making exceptions at the expense of the students.

It's usually in the news every couple of years after a record number of people get trampled to death at it. They ain't so good at crowd control over in mecca. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 03:29, 18 October 2011 (UTC)
The main problem is the sheer size of the crowds. You have never seen anything like it, if you're imagining something like a major sports event, or New Year in a big city, you aren't even on the right scale. We're talking literally millions of people, often with no common language and no local knowledge, trying to get to the same places at set times. Imagine if you somehow held all the Olympics events simultaneously in one venue. And then, to top that off, about a million of them are in a hurry to catch planes home afterwards, so they'd like to get finished as early as possible. The Saudis have done a lot of work to improve crowd flow - the area appears crazily over-supported by infrastructure for most of the year, and it's actually pretty impressive how few die when something goes wrong. We're lucky Mecca is in Saudi and not one of the poor-as-shit countries, because then it'd be a lot more dangerous. Anyway aside from the caveat that religion, and particularly organised religion, is bad news, Hajj is pretty good. It forces Muslims to mix and see a wider spectrum of people and mostly they come away from that experience with broader horizons and that kind-of hippy understanding that we're all more alike than different, which is a powerful anti-hate sentiment. If you've got a dozen teenage Western Muslims who you're worried may turn to terrorism, you could do worse than put them on a plane to Mecca for Hajj. 82.69.171.94 (talk) 12:08, 18 October 2011 (UTC)

As far as I know, the "only if you can make it rule" applies only if you're insanely poor and just can't afford the travel or for example you have many farm animals and you're working the farm alone, so the animals would die without you (which would be the end of your business and jump start you into poverty). As she was a teacher in the US, she has enough money to make the trip and has to make the trip. But not granting her unpaid leave to do so is an infringement to act out her religious beliefs without hurting anybody else in the process - also she paid for it herself. You could ask a different question of course: What would they say if a school would hold classes Sunday morning and didn't allow a Christian teacher to go to church? --ʤɱ kant 09:58, 18 October 2011 (UTC)
For crowd control reasons, Saudi Arabia does limit the number of people who can go. Each country tends to have a quota. I'm not sure if this applies to the US, I presume there's no centralised organisation or government involved in the US unlike in those countries (including places like Russia [7], India [8] [9] and South Africa [10]) in any case.
If there is a quota for the US and it's regularly exceeded, this makes it much harder since she may have little way of knowing when she will be selected. As she's female and under the age of 45, she also needs a wp:Mahram to accompany her [11] [12] which means both of them will need to be able to attend which further complicates scheduling issues. If she doesn't have one, it's not obligatory for her to perform the Hajj [13] [14]. But I presume she had one otherwise she wouldn't gave gone. And since she had one, and he was able to attend, and both had the financial resources; I'm guessing under many common intepretation it was obligatory for her to perform the hajj.
BTW the agreement says they should work on the issue on a case by case basis and the leave only need to be "granted if it poses no undue hardship on the school district" Volokh conspiracy (found from Conservapedia). Some more details on the original case are here [15] (it's not clear to me it was during term time but it was evidentally during marking time).
Also if you follow the VK links you find [16] which mentions there is some history here where the Justice Department has got involved over refusals to grant leave for wp:Worldwide Church of God religious convocation as well as for sabbath and other one day (or part of one day) religious observance related reasons. E.g. [17] (where's the article on H.W. Bush's Christian agenda?) & [18] [19] [20] [21] (I'm sure they don't like Jimmy Carter but I haven't seen them complain about his Christian agenda) & [22] (evil ole Willy, conservapedia must list his many flaws but I'm guessing they still don't mention his evil Christian agenda), [23] (oh dear, our hero W.

Congressional approval ratings[edit]

Does anyone recall a few years ago when the Democrats controlled Congress that someone at CP (probably Rob) used Congressional approval numbers for Democrats as a whole, the logic being that since Dems controlled Congress they two must be interchangable? I'm wondering how they'd look at those numbers now that Republicans control half of Congress and approval ratings are somewhere between 10 and 15%.

I found that statement of "preacher to the godless" fascinating. Here I thought the sysops of CP merely tolerated and protected Ken purely for the selfish motives of better securing their own tiny fiefdoms and positions in the dysfunctional kingdom of Andy; but now it appears at least one of them actually believes in what Kenny is saying. The situation there is far worse than I have initially suspected. I held a tiny shred of hope that the sysops may one day realize that Kenny is damaging the project enough where getting rid of him outweighs the value of keeping him in their desire to cling to power on CP and the desperate hope of attaining legitimacy within the conservative movement. Now it seems they actually believe the insanity within their midst, one that will further isolate them from the conservative and evangelical peers and into the realm of the nutty fringe where even WND repudiates them.--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 12:52, 19 October 2011 (UTC)

Indiana is actually one of the long shot ones; I think he won it by less than 1% in '08. He's probably more likely to win Missouri. Of course, in this scenario he still has to carry uncertain states such as Pennsylvania (which certainly tends Democratic, though they did just elect Toomey), Wisconsin, Colorado, Minnesota (which hasn't voted for a Republican since '84), Nevada, Iowa, and New Mexico, as well as all of the traditional "blue" states.

To be fair to Andy, some of his inconsistent grading could have to do with the age discrepencies of his students. I think he has everything from middle schoolers to seniors, so taking points off for minor spelling/grammatical errors for the latter group and not the former wouldn't be unreasonable, nor would expecting substantially more complete answers from them. Of course, if this is the case he should say so, and the fact he doesn't makes me think this isn't his reasoning. (Also, I guess this would only apply to his actual in-person students, and he probably doesn't have that many or he'd be bragging about his numbers again.) None of this explains giving full credit for plain wrong answers. I'd give him benefit of the doubt in that he simply misread the Martel/Charlemagne grandfather answer, but again, his refusal to even say something like "yep, I didn't catch that, but having already given the student full points I feel it's a bit late to take them away" is just another example of Andy refusing to ever admit he's wrong.

Rex might be making legitimate points, but it seems likely he signed up intending to do this. If that's the case, he's essentially a concern troll. On what grounds does he claim to be a "student representative"?--

Kriss AkabusiAAAWOOOGAAAR!!1 13:43, 19 October 2011 (UTC)

Well he claims he was privately contacted by multiple students who had complaints. Some of us have doubts about this because CP evidentally has had e-mail disabled for a long time so it's not clear how they would have contacted him unless they're all parodists who knew each other from outside CP. To be fair though, with multiple students joining in I wonder whether he is turning out to be some sort of representative whether initially approached or not.

Well even if he is some kind of troll who is making up his entire "backstory", all of his points are valid. Hell, even if he appeared on CP claiming to be Lord Xenu himself, "you marked this factually inaccurate answer as right and gave it full marks" is still a criticism that deserves some kind of response, not just "Nitpicking, I'll teach my class wrong if I want to, godspeed." It's not some minor error or grammatical mistake on an article no one cares about, this is (ostensibly) children being blatantly misled (miseducated isn't a word according to my browser, but by god, it should be) by someone who can't be bothered to actually fact check answers to an exam he wrote himself.

JPatt: "New polling shows Americans are not buying into the Occupy Wall Street hype -- they blame Washington and not the banks."img

Source 1 (USA Today): "Most Americans blame Wall Street for the nation's economic predicament — but they blame Washington more. […] 78% say Wall Street bears a great deal or a fair amount of blame for the economy; 87% say the same about Washington. The poll shows that most Americans are paying attention to the protest movement. But most don't know enough to take a position."

Source 2 (News Busters): "A new USA Today/Gallup poll that finds Americans blame Washington for the country's economic woes much more than Wall Street and financial institutions."

Hey! What's a "more" when it helps to bash your enemies? But wait — there's, erm, more:

Jpatt: "Without Bush and Cheney to kick around, liberals are without a message that resonates with the public."

But that's not what was asked for. "blaming for" is causal, therfore you can't blame somebody who didn't do anything before the problem first existed. Now if they were asking who they "blame for it taking so long" or something like that you'd have a point. Although, as most of the people that answered that poll probably were native speakers, they might not be able to see that while answering. --ʤɱ constructivist 21:00, 20 October 2011 (UTC)

Ken blocked and deleted an account, including all her contributions, for asking how to cite an article? I mean, probably a parodist, but still... What she wrote wasn't nearly as bad as Conservapedia's BeastialityCon2011. Perhaps she was infringing on Ken's territory?

Moreover, how can Conservapedia still expect to cater to genuine students when they live in such paranoia? --Sasayaki (talk) 05:12, 20 October 2011 (UTC)

"An advocate of the Question evolution! campaign" "A person who loves the Question evolution! campaign"... then again, they probably are Ken and Schlong, so no surprise there.

Hundreds of hours are going to be added to promote the campaign in the short term ? Yeah he's definitely talking about Ken. Though it could have been phrased: "Hundreds of hours are going to be wasted on Conservapedia in the short term." ONE / TALK 15:03, 20 October 2011 (UTC)
It is more pathetic than it first looks (I know, quite the achievement). All Ken keeps claiming is that they are gathering pledges from people for hundreds of man hours devoted to the "Question Evolution" campaign. These are not people actually putting in hundreds of hours of their time, they are merely promising they will (and there is no real accountability for wither they follow through or not). Worse, all we have to go on is the claim in Shock's blog that such people are making said promises (which Ken repeats verbatim). Despite all of Ken's boasting, all links that do not go directly back to CMI are directed at Shock's personal blog, which has a whooping 18 members, which only two are active enough to even bother writing posts there (Evodoubter and Question, in other words, Shock and Kenny). Shock himself devotes more time to the Battlefield 3 Beta than to the Question Evolution campaign if his videos are any measure, so how deep can their commitment be?--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 16:49, 20 October 2011 (UTC)
Even worse, Ken's endless pimping of QE! on CP is very likely part of those pledged hours. So the net result is basically "(1) We will talk a lot about the campaign! (2) We promise to talk even more about the campaign! (3) ??? (4) The theory of evolution and all work on the origin of life and of the entire universe is finally scrapped by the scientific community in favor of Creationism. (5) TerryH's wet dreamimg becomes reality as planet Earth finally accepts the Bible as its sole science book."

I went to Chocks chat room, and no matter what the question I asked him the answer was on the same fucking CMI page that contained none of the answers I was after. I told him "I can't remember the URL but I seem to recall this being on your blog somewhere" he replied "No I don't have this on my blog, go look at CMI" I later found a bookmark to EXACTLY what I was describing EXACTLY perfectly, still can't remember the exact URL but it's something like Shockawenow.blogspot.com, undeniably his blog, he undeniably knew it when he sent me to CMI after I asked him something about that blog post that wasn't answered on CMI in any way shape or form. I think Shock may be more mentally defficient than Ken. --Opcn (with regards to regarding my regardliness) 22:55, 20 October 2011 (UTC)

As for Shock, I can see why he denies his own blog; it is without a doubt a complete flop. The only two who write there is Kenny and Shock, and none of their ramblings get any comments (from the other 16 whole members).

It is almost, but not quite, as humorous as RobSmith's contention that the overseas birth thing was a ruse cooked up by Obama to draw attention away from the fact that his father wasn't a U.S. citizen.

If Khalid was a parodist, maybe he was trying to deter anyone vaguely normal from joining CP, by provoking an OTT reaction from the so-called administrators. The Real James Brown (talk) 16:49, 21 October 2011 (UTC)

Not necessarily parody. I have a sincere account at CP, where I don't pretend to be a conservative (although I don't advertise that I'm from RW). I raise my concerns over the actions of users like  K e n  D o l l , but I don't lie about my political beliefs. I actually try and improve the site, though many might say that's a lost cause. Some try and play the role of a moderate conservative, though. I wouldn't say they're parodists in that they aren't magnifying the flaws of Conservapedia like a Modernist grotesque.--"Shut up, Brx." 22:33, 21 October 2011 (UTC)

Steve Jobs: Secret Conservative[edit]

Andy claims another dead person a secret conservativeimg : "[T]here are indications Jobs became more conservative on issues like the public schools as he grew older. It is possible that Jobs promoted liberal causes simply to further his own businesses, rather than based on personal views." Try to disprove it! --Night Jaguar (talk) 02:55, 21 October 2011 (UTC)

Well, if orwell can be a fucking conservative... --il'Dictator Mikalosa (talk) 03:06, 21 October 2011 (UTC)
What's stupid is that the source he's using to broad jump to that conclusion spends a lot of time talking about how uncharitable Jobs's behavior at the time was. I guess Andy would claim that the people collecting the data were college liberals, and they therefore only paid attention to his contributions to liberal causes. --Ellipsoidal (talk) 03:17, 21 October 2011 (UTC)
I'm a conservative and I'm not terribly charitable. Most "Charity" is bullshit; it's very difficult to truly help people.--Opcn (with regards to regarding my regardliness) 08:09, 21 October 2011 (UTC)
Charity is not just about 'helping' people it is also about contributing to things that conventional sources of funding can not or will not do. It may be adopting a section of highway to keep litter free, maintaining historic buildings or artefacts, funding medical research for 'minority' diseases, making things available to those who ordinarily could not afford them, trying to save an endangered habitat or species, or even supporting the promotion of a particular viewpoint which you think is important; and this can be done through cash donations, giving of your time or property. It's really about how you engage with the rest of society; of course if you want to just sit at home like a miserly curmudgeon that's your choice but how in all fairness can you ever expect anyone to help you in a time of need if you don't help others? Redchuck.gif ГенгисYou have the right to be offended; and I have the right to offend you.Moderator 08:47, 21 October 2011 (UTC)

Gates, who is the usual contrast offered to Jobs, spends a whole pile of money helping the Carter Center eradicate Guinea Worm. Eradicating disease organisms (particularly big ones like Guinea Worm that can't evolve appreciably faster than us) makes a very real difference on an ongoing basis. Gates also puts money into control vs extinction projections, e.g. to figure out whether the money saved by no-one ever getting Measles would justify the expense of wiping it out, compared to accepting a small ongoing rate of death and illness for the foreseeable future. 82.69.171.94 (talk) 11:01, 21 October 2011 (UTC)
@Opcn, that's nice. The point is that part of Andy's "Us vs. Them" pissing contest includes the argument that Conservatives and Christians are more charitable than whatever group you're using for "Them" today. I gather he's chosen that article as evidence because it points out instances where Jobs was a little blase about liberal politicians, events, etc., but in his usual, cherry-picking way, he ignores everything that's inconvenient to the theory he wants to push. The fact that real-world conservatives can hold onto their money without being bastards isn't important. We're dealing with Andyland here, not reality. --Ellipsoidal (talk) 14:22, 21 October 2011 (UTC)

Yep. Jobs was a conservative. Thats why he offered to help make advertisements for Obama. (Yes, he wasn't a fan of how school unions work... but we can't all be single issue conservatives, can we?) --Shagie (talk) 03:13, 22 October 2011 (UTC)

Not-at-all liberal scientists showing that climate change is not-at-all fictional. Wonder how the dingbats will spin this one? The Real James Brown (talk) 08:39, 21 October 2011 (UTC)

They'll probably follow the usual CP strategy. Stage 1, ignore it. Stage 2, write it off as being the work of ebil LIBRULS!!! Stage 3, rubbish any claims of impartiality in the group who did the study. Stage 4, cherry pick the data that they like and then lie desperately about it. Stage 5, Andy sees it, misunderstands everything about it, makes a complete fool of himself and then drops the banhammer at random. Stage 6, the evidence is burned and everyone pretends that everything's ok. Darkmind1970 (talk) 08:53, 21 October 2011 (UTC)

Oh boy, another replication of surface temps, cutting edge stuff here! Of course, most deniers have moved on to "it's natural/it's not that bad" from "global warming isn't happening," and this study makes no attempt at attribution, so it really only rebuts the more paranoid crowd that think NOAA, NASA, the Met Office, CRU, etc. are conspiring to fudge data (add another conspirator!). The only reason this is getting any play is because it was hyped by the deniosphere in the wake of Climategate and now it's come back to bite them in the ass.

Ruh-roh Andy, Rubio lied about parents[edit]

Remember how Andy loves Marco Rubio, and he made the argument on Talk:2012 Presidential Election that even though Rubio's parents weren't born in the U.S., it wasn't the same "naturally born" issue as Obama's father. He worked Rubio's parents flight from Castro into Rubio's positives in his ranking: "Both of his parents were Cuban exiles seeking asylum in the U.S. at the time of his birth in Miami, making him an inspiring, uniquely American success story." Turns out that was a big lie - Rubio's parents came a few years before Castro came to power. They were run-of-the-mill immigrants. --Phil Leotardo da Vinci (talk) 18:22, 21 October 2011 (UTC)

Saying that they immigrated before Castro took complete control of the country does not make them run-of-the-mill immigrants. It was obvious the situation was out of hand even in 1957. There was literally a civil war starting in the country and its reasonable to believe they immigrated to avoid Castro and the clusterfuck that was developing in the country. You wouldn't claim that the first wave of Russian Emigre's didn't leave because of Lenin and the Bolsheviks, even though they technically may have left before total capitulation of the white's. --Ateafish (talk) 18:50, 21 October 2011 (UTC)
Or people who left before the war even started?--il'Dictator Mikalosa (talk) 18:55, 21 October 2011 (UTC)
From WaPo: "The documents show that Rubio’s parents came to the United States and were admitted for permanent residence more than two-and-a-half years before Castro’s forces overthrew the Cuban government and took power on New Year’s Day 1959... The real story of his parents’ migration appears to be a more conventional immigrant narrative, a couple who came to the United States seeking a better life. In the year they arrived in Florida, the future Marxist dictator was in Mexico plotting a quixotic return to Cuba." They even returned to Cuba several times after Castro took power. --Phil Leotardo da Vinci (talk) 19:11, 21 October 2011 (UTC)
I also love Rubio's response, which is basically, 'yes, they left Cuba because they wanted to give their children a better life and things they never had in Cuba, but yet they also really, really wanted to go back to Cuba, to that hard life, so they went back several times after Castro came to power.' Um, okay, sure, that makes sense. Conservative deceit to play on emotion at its finest. --Phil Leotardo da Vinci (talk) 19:14, 21 October 2011 (UTC)
While this story is funny in it's own right, very little CP stuff pleases me as watching Andy lie about Rubio just because he happens to like him. Occasionaluse (talk) 20:15, 21 October 2011 (UTC)

Towering heights of hubris[edit]

I really don't think the wigo does this Andyism justiceimg. Andy really thinks that literally millions of people are tuning out of prime time TV in favour of browsing Conservapedia. He's off his nut. He is literally fucking insane. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 00:35, 22 October 2011 (UTC)

Some quotes from our article Andrew Schlafly's delusions of grandeur :
"Television is losing its relevancy, and some viewers are shifting to Conservapedia. The television audience is declining; Conservapedia's is growing. Welcome to the future here."
"As to other websites on the internet, I can't think of any that combine education, politics, and religion -- the three fields that count most -- as efficiently as Conservapedia does."
"Conservapedia is on track to break its May record for unique visitors. That's no surprise, because visitors obtain content here more efficiently than with any other form of media."
"All of our traffic sees the conservative message, and with our high volume, our site could be the single biggest reason American culture is moving to the right."
The sad/funny part is that in reality almost everyone who has heard of CP think it's a gigantic joke. --Night Jaguar (talk) 00:44, 22 October 2011 (UTC)

Trimming is the New Archiving[edit]

Andy made two huge "trims" today, to his talk pageimg and to Talk:Main Pageimg, and the removed material is nowhere to be found in theimg archivesimg. This must be some kind of mistake since Conservapedia doesn't censor. --Tabrcg23 (talk) 01:24, 19 October 2011 (UTC)

Yeah SeanS, make yourself useful and unblock me. Anyway, back on topic. In Andy's defense, his "trimming" description is more accurate. Archiving implied that the removed edits were being stored some place for safekeeping. While trimming bears no such implications. Things that are trimmed are normally discarded, whether they are tree branches, pubic hair, or uncomfortable questions from those you purport to teach. --Inquisitor (talk) 02:12, 19 October 2011 (UTC)
