Missouri Republicans[edit]

Andy: Such massive republican caucuses! Were populist! the democrats handpick candidates!img. According to the source; one was shut down by police after problems involving paul supporters and a fear for crowd safety. the other stopped admitting people because it could only hold 120 people.

(a) "stopped admitting people because it could only hold 120 people" shows which party has the enthusiasm; and (b) "force hand picked candidates on people" probably is a reference to the Democratic Party's longstanding, anti-democratic, non-elected, elitist Superdelegate tradition (you know, where common primary voters count as three-fifths of a person). nobsWe Are the 91.6% (still employed)!!!!(88.6% with a realistic Laborforce Participation rate) 22:36, 17 March 2012 (UTC)

Nope. The States elect the President, not the People. And Obama only beat Hillary Clinton for the nomination with 'unelected Superdelegates, not delegates elected through primaries and caucuses. Oh, and did you know, since the Clinton's, you can buy a Superdelegate seat at the convention for cash, rather than just be a oldtime elected official too corrupt and lazy to face the party faithful at a caucus and be elected to the convention. nobsWe Are the 91.6% (still employed)!!!!(88.6% with a realistic Laborforce Participation rate) 22:56, 17 March 2012 (UTC)

Jesus Christ are you really that dumb? Nowhere in the Constitution do the People elect the President, never did, and probably never will.

He became nominee and eligible to run in the General Election only because he was hand picked by Democrat Superdelegate party insiders, not the choice of primarily voters at the ballot box or in caucuses. And the genius of the Electoral College is, it mandates the winner have a Constitutional 51% majority. It is one of the remaining rights delegated to the States, which they are loate to give up (especially to idiot Democrat majority States like California, New York, New Jersey, and Michigan, which almost solely would elect the President). But it is good to see after 12 years someone who self-identifies as a liberal or Democrat finally admit Al Gore & the Florida bullshit of 2000 was entirely just that -- mindless, partisan bullshit that served no other purpose than to cause harm to the Republic. nobsWe Are the 91.6% (still employed)!!!!(88.6% with a realistic Laborforce Participation rate) 00:46, 18 March 2012 (UTC)
P-Foster, you are being intentionally obtuse. RobS is referring to the primaries, and not the general election. He is saying that Hilary Clinton won the popular vote in the Democratic primaries, and that she would have won the election afterwards, whereas Obama was not democratically elected as the Democratic candidate, and in a fashion did not win the presidential democratically, since he skipped winning the Democratic primaries democratically.

Republicans' idolatrous cock-sucking of St. Ronnie is well-known and requires no further comment. As for a lack of any other cases, well, I think that says more about the soulless, elitist, cold, distant, unfeeling pricks that manage to come out on top in the Republican Party than it does about the party's rank and file. Face it, with the exception of Sarah Palin (who resonated with her party in great part because she couldn't name a single major US periodical), the Republican leadership has been a long line of cold-fish technocrats or base idiots (your kind of people) for quite a while now.

Romney, because he might just adopt my position for 5 minutes. But now to business, (1) delegates electing the President are voted for by the people, some of them are bound some aren't — that's technically not the people, but it's still called indirect democracy, which still is a form of people's rule. (2) If the Dems are undemocratic, does that mean the Founding Fathers (who came up with this indirect system for electing the POTUS) are fascists? If so, are they still conservatives? And how can you justify, as conservative, not fighting against this more than 200 year long oppression of the American people?

Response (1) that's true in the GOP, but not entirely true in the Democrat Party were unelected Superdelegates dilute common people's primary vote down to three-fifths of a person; (2) the Founders (gender neutral term) were of varying political stripes, however partisanship was generally frowned upon. For the most part, wp:Whigs gained ascendency whereas Tories (such as wp:Benedict Arnold) become increasing unpopular during the period of armed insurrection. (3) Tell that to the President; the GOP hasn't even agreed upon a nominee yet he pulls shit out of his ass about Republican voters, Republican ideals, Republican candidates, and Republican officials daily. And we'll still be here, active, influential, and involved in politics long after he's retired and worthless as a third tit, as ex-president's are. nobsWe Are the 91.6% (still employed)!!!!(88.6% with a realistic Laborforce Participation rate) 00:31, 18 March 2012 (UTC)

Four elections went counter to the popular vote. Andrew Jackson (1824, Independent), Rutherford B. Hayes (1876, Republican), Benjamin Harrison (1888, Republican) and George Bush (2000, Republican) became president despite garnering a smaller percentage of the popular vote than their opponents. Al Gore had a half million more votes than Bush. Guess which party likes the electoral college? Whoover (talk) 00:52, 18 March 2012 (UTC)

Hmmm, let's see now; the Democrats had a majority in the House, Senate, a majority of US governors and control of State Legislatures, and the Presidency from 2009 to 2011. What the fuck did they do? Did any of them, anywhere, at anytime, pick up the cause of Amending the Constitution to repeal the Electoral College? to right the wrong of how they were cheated? blah blah blah.

Fish. Whoover (talk) 01:01, 18 March 2012 (UTC)

RobS don't be this stupid. The President is elected by the Electoral College. The Electoral College is chosen by the States. The States choose based on the voters. The only reason Bush won in 2000 was because of a corrupt Supreme Court and ballots being thrown out in Florida. Btw Whoover Andrew Jackson was before most states decided electors based on popular vote, so he doesn't count. And the Republican Party back then was not the Republican Party of today. The Electoral College will essentially be eliminated soon, as more and more states are signing treaties that allot their electors to the winner of the national popular vote. Mr. Anon (talk) 01:13, 18 March 2012 (UTC)

I agree that the only relevant election to this discussion is 2000, but you're missing the point. The ten smallest states control 6% of the electoral college with 2% of the population. The problem is not the inaccuracy of elector allocation; it's the roundoff error. Small states will not agree to the inherent loss of this odd weighting in a true popular vote. This has always been the issue. Whoover (talk) 01:19, 18 March 2012 (UTC)
This is a going point and I did not realize that most of the states that benefit from the electoral college are hard-core Republican states. So yeah Rob, now that we've established that the majority of Americans wanted Obama in 2008, what exactly were you wanting to say? Mr. Anon (talk) 01:25, 18 March 2012 (UTC)
Bottom line is that a Wyoming vote is worth more than a New York vote. It's not brain surgery. Only facts. Whoover (talk) 01:30, 18 March 2012 (UTC)
(EC)The winner-take-all system has advantages, most notably, if no candidate has a majority of Electors and the decision is given to the House of Representatives, each State is given only one vote. Allocation of Electors by district would be meaningless. Under these circumstances, even a divided State delegation would have to choose only one candidate as each State has only one vote vote to cast. nobsWe Are the 91.6% (still employed)!!!!(88.6% with a realistic Laborforce Participation rate) 02:14, 18 March 2012 (UTC)
BTW, the unpleasant troll notwithstanding, Democrats don't call this "unfair." Giving each state two senators, and the electoral college, were compromises needed for the small colonies to agree to ratify the Constitution. It's not an accident. And since the thirteen smallest states (and/or red states who feel they are more competitive in small-population states) can prevent ratification, no sane person would expect any changes to the system. Whoover (talk) 02:01, 18 March 2012 (UTC)
One idea for fixing congress would be to get the house more in line the growing population[3]. This would renormalize the minimum representation - Wyoming would have 16 representatives with the latest census[4] and New York would have 629[5]. This would in turn change the size of the electoral collage and even out the disparity of voites (Wyoming would still be worth more because the additional two delegates would be a larger percentage of 16 than 629, but it would be much less than the ratio it is now). //// There is also an an attempt to bypass the electoral college in a number of states (Currently 132 votes or 49% of the 270 - one more state will flip it) by having the delegates of that state vote with the national popular vote rather than the state vote. --Shagie (talk) 02:02, 18 March 2012 (UTC)

Sounds all well and good, and this is how you could make it work: move a couple of million voters from NY & CA to WY and 37 other less populated states, establish residency, vote, bring ACORN to help, take over the State House, and Amend the Constitution for those states to give up their Electoral rights.

It always struck me that the electoral college (not a collage, Rob) is a bizarre system that is a sort of first-past-the-post on steroids thalidomide. Of course it is counter-intuitive to expect an incumbent party to change the system because that is the very way that they have just managed to get themselves elected. But then I don't really expect Rob to make a sensible point when he can take cheap shots at the opposition. What's the technical term people keep bandying about? Ah yes, idiot.  Lily Inspirate me. 09:19, 18 March 2012 (UTC)

From my understanding of the thought of the day, it stems from people not being smart enough to vote for a good leader. i think thats more true today though--il'Dictator Mikal 15:46, 18 March 2012 (UTC)
The electoral college is a carryover from early American elitism, yes, but it's also a safeguard in a similar vein as the bicameral legislature, meant to prevent larger more populous states from overtaking the smaller ones. It is a safeguard against tyranny of the majority, although not a very good one.--User:Brxbrx/sig 18:00, 18 March 2012 (UTC)
Not a good one at all. Under the Electoral College system, a candidate could win the eleven biggest states 51%-49%, come nowhere in the other 37 states, and become president. Sophiebecause liberals 18:11, 18 March 2012 (UTC)
The Electoral College mandates a winner carry 51% of State Electors; if the U.S. had direct popular election, multiple parties would flourish and a winner conceivably could get 25% while six others carry a combined 75%, making the country ungovernable. This is why States elect the President, not the People. nobsWe Are the 91.6% (still employed)!!!!(88.6% with a realistic Laborforce Participation rate) 18:57, 19 March 2012 (UTC)
Or, you know, we could have run-off elections. That usually works pretty good--Brxbrx 19:07, 19 March 2012 (UTC)
That is true, valid, and interesting. However it's the Electoral College that basically gives the U.S. a two party system, cause it mandates a 51% majority. If a popular personality from a minor party were elected, he'd still have tremendous difficulties passing any legislation in Congress (this is a huge advantage the British system has) or getting any appointments requiring 2/3rds Senate approval.

Following the link to the 'best of the public page' and seeing 'THE BEST OF THE PUBLIC IS BETTER THAN A GROUP OF EXPERTS' makes me writhe in my seat in disgust.

The whole thing about the Best of the Public is that there is some legitimacy to the concept. The idea of the wisdom of the crowd or uncredentialed talent. The problem is that these aren't original Andy insights, and he takes the notion in incredibly asinine direction. "Best" is whoever he decides is best or whoever agrees with him. His idea of an "expert" is equally stupid. One NFL team will be "experts" and another will be "Best of the Public" because the former is favored to win a particular game, disregarding the fact that both get their players from exactly the same pool of people who have been highly trained since childhood. The fact that Kendoll qualifies as the Best of the Public, rather than an institutionalized manchild with an IQ around 80, sums up the concept pretty well.

Yeah. A surgeon who went to Johns Hopkins is an expert; one who went to the University of Tennessee is best of the public.

I am bemused by the paradoxes; Andy comes from an elite background - wealthy parents, politically influential mother, Princeton and Harvard degrees - yet he has been a singular failure in the professional world of his chosen subjects. So he ranks towards the bottom of the elite, yet he aspires to be a BotP in topics where he is either ill-informed or completely ignorant and shows disdain for those who do know what they are talking about.

Jesus as the BotP[edit]

Andy listing Christ as the BotP reminds me of what someone (was it World Net Daily having a "blind squirrel" moment?) said about the Conservative Bible Project, that it made the Bible subservient to conservatism, rather than vice versa.

Dear Karajou[edit]

You, sir, are a lying swine. I note that you have blocked several accounts and claimed it was me.

So, as you well know, it wasn't me doing the trolling...not that it matters to a liar like yourself. AceModerator 03:59, 21 March 2012 (UTC)

It's surreal seeing him repeatedly blocking accounts with Mc in them as "socks of banned user" Horace or Ace McWicked when he has 0 evidence that's true and the reality is neither of you has been near that place in a 'long' time.

Karajou condones the murder of atheist teens[edit]

I notice Kara is spewing outrage at the threats leveled against 14-year-old Sarah Crank, who wants gay marriage outlawed for her birthday. I have no problem with that, I think that sort of behaviour is disgusting. However, I see he's remained silent on the threats of murder, rape and violence directed by Christians against Jessica Alquist. Therefore I can only assume he's in favour of this sort of thing. --PsyGremlinTala! 13:19, 21 March 2012 (UTC)

I personally have an issue with people threatening a 14 year old girl, no matter how much I disagree with her. Of course most of the threats are Youtube comments and thus fall into the "Internet Tough Guy" realm, and besides we all know Youtube comment sections are one of the deepest cesspools of the Internet.--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 14:24, 21 March 2012 (UTC)
Agreed. The people threatening Crank are pond life. Crank herself is clearly an objectionable little bigot and why a 14 year old is testifying before a judicial hearing baffles me, but there's no excuse for threats. Far better to just calmly and reasonably point out her errors.--Fergus Mason (talk) 14:32, 21 March 2012 (UTC)
Given that Crank is home-schooled, I don't think it's so much her being a bigot, as being coached what to say. I doubt she's had any exposure to any view other than that of her parents/church. Which probably constitutes a mild form of child abuse. --PsyGremlinSpeak! 14:40, 21 March 2012 (UTC)
Fair point. She's still a bigot, but because she's been turned into one by her parents. I still don't see why a 14 year old who's neither married nor gay is testifying to a judicial hearing on gay marriage, though.--Fergus Mason (talk) 16:04, 21 March 2012 (UTC)
Apparently it's okay to testify before a government panel if you're thoroughly unqualified and conservative, but not if you're a liberal and judged unqualified by a bunch of conservatives. -- Seth Peck (talk) 16:09, 21 March 2012 (UTC)

I haven't been following either of these stories, or anything much on CP lately, but I think saying "Karajou does not mention this, & therefore condones this" stands on very shaky logic. It's in the nature of CP to report selectively & make a big deal about stories that champion conservative causes &/or show liberals in a bad light, while ignoring or downplaying stories that might be embarrassing for the conservative movement. This does not necessarily mean they condone the bad stuff, just act like it's not happening. ωεαşεζøίɗWeaselly.jpgMethinks it is a Weasel 21:13, 22 March 2012 (UTC)

A prediction[edit]

Jeb bush, well known as the third bush, spent the last many months dancing around the idea he could be the nominee, therefor trying to woo conservative votes from true conservatives while in truth he was a stalking horse for romney this entire time! --il'Dictator Mikal 15:45, 21 March 2012 (UTC)

I think Jeb is known as the smart Bush. Supposedly, George Bush the Elder supposedly wrote a letter talking about how smart his son was, and how proud he was of him, and how he was sure he'd be President some day. That was Jeb, not George. (And supposedly Neil, who has stayed out of elective politics, makes George look bright.) I've never figured out why George ran for President before Jeb, unless they just decided to let the older one have his turn first. MDB (talk) 16:05, 21 March 2012 (UTC)
As this is a conservative family I guess the old Bush didn't hold back his opinion for this pussy feelings thing, which would probably motivate and piss off most people hearing their whole life how fucking incredibly brilliant their brother is, so that would have given Georgie a whole freaking truckload of motivation to make his daddy love him. I predict if Jeb ever becomes President Georgie will hit the bottle hard. Now I feel sympathy for GWB. That feels wrong. --ʤɱ socialist 20:29, 21 March 2012 (UTC)
From GWB's memoirs, he really pushes that Jeb is admirable and driven, that while GWB screwed around at Harvard you don't get that about Jeb. There's nothing to say that Jeb was more favored or even that there was any rivalry there though; George seems to admire him. GWB actually sees the unconditional love from his parents as helping him develop to become president. Gomedog (talk) 22:53, 21 March 2012 (UTC)

Brokered Conventions[edit]

I've remarked before that both parties set up the current primary system to make it very likely a nominee would be clear before the convention -- if not having a true majority, at least a commanding lead. However, I didn't realize something at the time. The Republicans watched the Obama/Clinton fight in 2008, and said, "hey, that was good for the Democrats; it kept attention on them after our nomination was settled." So, they jiggered with the party rules to make the process go longer.However, that's turned out to be a bad move in retrospect. In 2008, the Democrats had an interesting choice between the candidate with experience versus the candidate who was dynamic and inspirational. The Republican choice is between a bland guy the party base doesn't trust, and some flakes the base likes, but have no chance in the general election. Now, I suppose if the Republican nomination does go all the way to the convention, they'd get lots of media attention, especially if they do end up nominating someone who's not currently running. But it's just as likely to end up with the reason they fear a brokered convention: they create the impression they can't even run their own nomination process, much less a country. MDB (talk) 15:58, 21 March 2012 (UTC)

Why does everyone say Clinton had experience. Being the wife of a president isn't "experience" and she had only sat as Senator for 7 years at the time of the election. anyhow... i liked your comments, but how do the rules allow you to bring in a non-candiate, candidate?--Pink mowse.pngGodot What do cats dream about? 16:02, 21 March 2012 (UTC)
I think the point was Clinton had more experience than Obama, not necessarily that she had this great degree of experience. (Anyway, I've long said that the only way to get experience that qualifies you to be President is to be President. There's no other job like it. I think the closest you'd come would be to have been a high-ranking military officer, a governor, a major Cabinet officer, and an ambassador to a significant country.)
As for how you can bring in a non-candidate candidate, the delegates are generally bound to their pledged candidate on the first ballot. However, you have to win a clear majority to get the nomination. If no one gets a majority the first time, they can vote for anyone. And I mean anyone, declared candidate or not. (It's no where near that simple. For instance, a candidate can drop out and "release" his delegates, and they can vote as they choose, even on the first ballot. They can still vote for their original candidate, even, and might do that to say "we hate all the other guys." And there's lots of arcane and esoteric rules. They have lawyers for this.) MDB (talk) 16:41, 21 March 2012 (UTC)

Rules Schmules[edit]

Jeb Bush, as well as all those other "Candidates In Waiting", should brush up on their RNC rules before the convention. If Newt, for instance, thinks he'll swing in and grab the nomination:

Nominations(b) Each candidate for nomination for President of the United States and Vice President of the United States shall demonstrate the support of a plurality of the delegates from each of five (5) or more states, severally, prior to the presentation of the name of that candidate for nomination. (RNC Rule #40)

Basically, if you can't win at least 5 states in the primaries (delegate-wise, not popular vote---sorry Santorum), your chances are miniscule that you'll be able to steal a win at the Big Show. Here's the article, describing the hurdles faced by long-shot candidates in terms of RNC rules: RNC rule means hurdle for Gingrich convention strategy Jared (talk) 17:21, 21 March 2012 (UTC)

Ah, but they can try for a change in rules at the convention. MDB (talk) 17:22, 21 March 2012 (UTC)
That would be unprecedented, I can't think of any time a Republican has ever tried to change the rules for their own benefit. -- Seth Peck (talk) 17:51, 21 March 2012 (UTC)
Nomination takes place at the convention right? Jeb could conceivably get the plurality of five states from released and super delegates. Newt's got two states which Jeb could have and if Frothy thinks he stands a better chance as the bottom of a Bush ticket he could release his. It's a possibility, remote obviously, but they'd still have to hope to win it in a drawn-out process after the second ballot when Romney's delegates are free to vote as they want because even Newt and Frothy combined don't have enough to knock Romney out on the first two ballots. It might be interesting to look at the rules for faithless electors in the RNC rules and history. -- Iscariot Andy Schlafly for Congress 2012! 19:27, 21 March 2012 (UTC)
Once the delegates are released they can nominate anyone, even if that person is ineligible to run for office. Bush wouldn't have to jump through any hoops, he would however have to be tremendously charismatic to convince all the delegates to go for him. --Opcn (with regards to regarding my regardliness) 19:51, 21 March 2012 (UTC)
In other words this rule says that bush has to win over 5 states worth of delegates before his name is announced officially as a candidate along with the others. --Opcn (with regards to regarding my regardliness) 19:52, 21 March 2012 (UTC)
All the hub bub about delegate counts only refers to a First Ballot win. A brokered convention would proceed (after an interval) to a second ballot with unbound, split state delegations. No big deal. In 1924, it took the Dems something like 125 roll call ballots to get a nominee; in 1940 the GOP also had multiple ballots, if memory serves. nobsWe Are the 91.6% (still employed)!!!!(88.6% with a realistic Laborforce Participation rate) 19:56, 22 March 2012 (UTC)

CNAV goes outright racist.

"Once more he was shipped off to a cesspool where our military is obliged to fight with a collective arm tied behind its back according to rules apparently set forth by Lewis Carroll." hit me quite hard. Should they start shooting every Afghan with a gun, or what? Do these people understand that international war crime laws have been established for a reason? To saveguard the innocent civilians caught between enemy lines? I mean... Jesus Christ, that's just fucked up.
Do these people know any muslims? The picture I'd get from conservative media are blood-thirsty beasts, just waiting to kill Americans and rape some women for fun while screaming "allah akhbar!". I know Arabs that scream that when their favorite soccer team scores a goal.

So I use Google Alerts to find me daily media stories related to my research and send them to me in one convenient e-mail.

Atheists Can't Unite[edit]

Ken's latest essay features this gem.

In short, "atheists can't unite on a common belief like us Christians do!"

Okay, being a nominal theist, I can't really comment on whether or not atheists are "united".

But claiming Christians share a unity of belief beyond "we think this Jesus fellow was pretty cool"?

Excuse me.


Ken, you fucking moron, wars have been fought over what's the right form of Christianity! People have been executed for espousing "incorrect" doctrine! You don't even have to look back to the Middle Ages for examples of that; look at the early history of the Mormons!

Is he really that stupid? MDB (talk) 12:31, 22 March 2012 (UTC)

Yes. --ʤɱ pervert 12:37, 22 March 2012 (UTC)
Atheists can't unite on a common belief? Well what's all this, then? *pokes Rationalwiki* Not only have we united on the common belief that Conservapedia is a load of excrement, but we seem to unite on a regular basis with other people of practically any faith here who think the same, too. Heck- isn't atheism in general a common thought among people that unites them, rather than a religion? Atheists do a lot of uniting, really. At least more uniting than Ken is doing, who is huddled rabidly, badger-like, in the tiny and hateful dark cave of his thoughts. ±Knightoftldrsig.pngKnightOfTL;DRyeah, well you fight like a cow! 13:17, 22 March 2012 (UTC)
Atheists have in common one thing, the view that no god or gods exist due to lack of any real evidence that stand up to scientific scrutiny. Beyond this it is silly to assume some great common cause. This is where the theist who follow organized religion fail to understand. The theist's beliefs is based on a system of dogma complete with a series of commandments, holy writ, and rules that just are and should be obeyed. That is how they conduct their life (sometimes) and it often causes them to assume that non-theists view the world in much the same way. They have difficulty conceiving that non-theists have no dogma, no commandments, no holy writ, no sacred truth that must be accepted. So they can't understand why there is no uniting set of beliefs beyond "no supernatural".
When it comes to Christians, being united is far from the truth. Christians may revile atheists but they revile each other's denominations as well. Ask a fundamental baptist what they think of a Catholic, or a traditionalist Catholic think of a protestant. Ask either what either think of Mormons. Christians have traditionally bled each other white in wars over doctrine over a period of centuries. They don't do it now only because the calming influence of secularism.--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 13:36, 22 March 2012 (UTC)
I can't comprehend what "atheists can't unite!" bullshit means, but I know for sure it's far, far, far less than the ~38,0000 demoninations of Christianity. Ken, if you're going to lie, at least lie more inconspicuously. AndyToad.gifNorsemanCyser Melomel 14:41, 22 March 2012 (UTC)

Where's the etch-a-sketch talk?`[edit]

I don't get it. CP claims that Romney is a RINO and then one of his campaign advisors says that Romney will reboot just after the primaries, in order to appeal to the middle. Shouldn't CP be trumpeting this? Or have they concluded Romney will win and so they should be silent about his flaws? (I doubt it.) Weird. Phiwum (talk) 12:37, 22 March 2012 (UTC)

It might not be wise for them to point this out, because CP is also going to reboot after the primaries to become dyed-in-the-wool Romney fans. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 13:12, 22 March 2012 (UTC)
The reboot is a flop-flop speed bump. The reboot is an attempt to appear conservative in the primaries and appeal to moderates in the general. The fact that he takes so many damn contradictory positions, like Obama, you can never nail down who Romney really is. This pisses off conservatives more than anything. Romney made a damn good conservative sounding speech after his Illinois win. Right when he attempts to pull in the rightwing, his dumb ass adviser shows who Romney really is with the Shake Up. AJ is right about Romney, we will promote the most conservative candidate. Even if our candidate was Dukakis, he ismore conservative than Obama thus gets our support. Will we scrub his page? the Mormon page? No. But you can expect additional support not criticisms added to his page.-- (talk) 16:13, 22 March 2012 (UTC)

That's a quarter of a millionth of a billionth of a nanosecond. The clocks used can't measure better than a nanosecond or so.

Yes Neutrinos travel practically at the speed of light, with the speed difference being virtually immeasurable. However this is because Neutrinos are in real terms, massless. They are not truly massless like photons, but their mass is incredibly tiny even in comparison to the next lightest fundamental particles, the Up Quark and the Electron, so much so that they are often listed at having "zero" mass. In Relativity objects with practically zero mass should be able to come within a hair's breath of light speed, and 'lo and behold this is what happens. That isn't what Andy originally claimed as a "counterexample", he claimed they exceeded the speed of lightimg. He is now saying different only to cover his own tracks and pretend he was right all along. Andy will ignore and censor the rebuttal page (or one of his loyal acolytes will do it for him), and claim victory because he is the Kim il Jong of Conservapedialand. This is why kids you should never use Conservapedia as a educational resource. Put aside Ken insipid failings about Question Evolution, Launchbooty's whoring, and JPatt's Klansman like racism, the main reason they shouldn't be used is that they overtly lie to you about science.--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 10:45, 22 March 2012 (UTC)

Andy's claim "I've found that once someone falls for Relativity, they almost never open a Bible again," is easy to pick apart. In Andy's own lifetime, the official teaching of the Catholic Church forbad independent bible study not under supervision and control of the Church. I doubt very much if he ever opened a bible as a kid, since it was contrary to his church's doctrine. Independent bible study still is discouraged in the Roman Catholic Church. nobsWe Are the 91.6% (still employed)!!!!(88.6% with a realistic Laborforce Participation rate) 20:56, 24 March 2012 (UTC)

Monckton is a batshit crazy member of the House of Lords, whose august and expertly snoozing members have distanced themselves from him as he's, well, batshit crazy. He's 'affiliated' with UKIP, a bunch of Europhobes who probably want to saw the UK off the European continental shelf and tow us into the middle of the Atlanic so that we don't get ill from the smell of garlic. He drivels on a regular basis about climate change, even though he doesn't have any qualifications to do so.

I think he means the context of Obama saying if he had a son, he'd look like Trayvon, implying nothing racial.

Prefacing Newt Gingrich with "conservative" as some sort of counterweight to Obama's "racial remarks". Gingrich, Andy, and Obama are known partisans. Andy takes the bait of positioning the conservative movement contrary to Obama's "racial remarks", which were probably anything but racist. I'm viewing this through the eye of a non-aligned, independent moderate voter who hasn't made a judgement on any of these issues. nobsI'm not a doctor but I play one with the girls 16:47, 25 March 2012 (UTC)
Sigh. No, Rob. That's not how reading works. What's happening there is that Andy is leaning on Gingrich to claim a sort of "post-racial" moral high ground, one that says "we're all Americans now" and that blames Obama for playing the "race card." That might be wrong, it might be short-sighted, but it's not equating conservatism with racism. P-Foster Talk ""Santorum is the cream rising to the top."" 16:54, 25 March 2012 (UTC)
That's why the link to Obama's keynote was included. If Gingrich & Obama agree, there's only one America, not a black America and white America, why the disagreement between Gingrich & Obama, of which Andy drags the whole conservative movement along behind Gingrich? nobsI'm not a doctor but I play one with the girls 17:01, 25 March 2012 (UTC)

Obama's idea of what it means to say "there is only one America" and Gingrich's strategic race blindness aren't at all the same thing, dummy. P-Foster Talk ""Santorum is the cream rising to the top."" 17:10, 25 March 2012 (UTC)

It makes it more difficult to charge playing the race card when you swallow the race bait hook, line, and sinker. This isn't the first time Andy played into the hands of those trying to bait him. Andy, Gingrich, and Obama all seem to be of the same stripe: they're trying to place a hard partisan divide between Americans, and all three don't seem to have a problem using race to do that. A larger point may be all three are out of step with mainstream, moderate, middle America that simply is fed up with this shit. nobsI'm not a doctor but I play one with the girls 17:35, 25 March 2012 (UTC)

Greatest Conservative Sportsman?[edit]

So the Broncos released the greatest conservative sportsman, did they? Let's see just how awesome Tebow's stats are (a Yank might need to explain the abbreviations):

  • Yards/Game = 123.5 (rank 33 out of 33) - 20 yards less than the man above him.
  • Comp: 126 (33/33)
  • Att: 271 (30/33)
  • Pct: 46.5 (33/33)
  • 1st: 76 (32/33)
  • Sck: 33 (12/33)
  • Rate: 72.9 (27/33)

If stats like that qualify you as the greatest conservative sportsman, it must be a pretty awful pool. --PsyGremlinRunāt! 10:11, 24 March 2012 (UTC)

That's exactly what makes Andy's "The Broncos wanted Peyton Manning because of lib'rul bias" so batshit crazy (well, that and the idea that NFL teams make personnel decisions based on politics). Peyton Manning is one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time, while Tebow won't even start with the Jets (playing behind a starter who is no great shakes himself). Godspeed (talk) 11:06, 24 March 2012 (UTC)
I'm not much of a sports guy, but Comp is Completed Passes, Att is Attempted Passes, Pct is Percentage of Passes Completed, 1st is Total First Downs, Sck is Times Sacked (tackled before he got the ball out of his hands, which is very bad), and Rate is apparently some goofy-ass passing rating where 158.3 is perfect. So basically the only stat he's not at or near dead last in is being sacked, so... good for him! I guess you can say the one thing he's not awful at is getting the ball out of his hands before he gets tackled.
Also, now I'm sad that I know all of this stuff, other than the Passer Rating thingy which I had to look up. I really don't like sports at all. Cow...Hammertime! 16:15, 26 March 2012 (UTC)

I was a fool to think that Andy might conceivably think that a big picture of "evolutionist Adolf" on his main page could possibly be a bad thing. Andy's official stance continues to be that Ken makes "meritorious contributions" and can do no wrong. So, all the Conservapedia sysops think the principal page of their encyclopedia is fine and dandy just the way it is. Except for Martinez, who for some reason is a lot less assertive when it comes to showing his support for art appreciation than in showing his support for the regimes of oppressive dictators. And the main page really does look like a parody now with the question "Why do evolutionists push evolution?" above the Hitler pic. "Why do people who like cheese like cheese?" That's what I say. --Spud (talk) 05:55, 24 March 2012 (UTC)

Don't be weird. They aren't all nutcases. Only the people who are there to cause trouble. TK told me "Conservative" is just very young and troubled and has too much time on his hands. If you can't help him maybe Karajour can since he once said to ignore him he seems to understand that "Conservative" is troubled and very difficult to deal with. What do you think about that?

IMO, and I don't say this in jest, there is some sort of commercial relationship there between Andy & User:Conservative. I suspect User:Conservative may be paying part of the operating costs. Andy keeps him on cause he needs him for that as well as his skill at maintaining CP's Alexa ratings by drawing atheists and evolutionists to keep clicking on the site. It's no secret Andy's always considered User:Conservative a nutbag from the early, witness the fact he was not invited into any of CP's private mailing lists for the first couple of years. And Andy said as much in those mailing lists. Although he's was sysoped even before TK or myself, his rise to prominence among sysops only occurred because of death & attrition of other sysops. So I suspect Andy keeps him cause he has to, and bends to User:Conservative's wishes on occasion because User:Conservative just may have a financial stake in maintaining the site. nobsI'm not a doctor but I play one with the girls 18:55, 26 March 2012 (UTC)

Bader Qarmout[edit]

Doing some poking around on an unrelated issues I ran across RoseAnn Salanitri, she is the ring leader of the Recall Menendez fiasco, and putatively Schlafly's client when he did his notorious NJ Supreme court flop. Well she is not using the money/infrastructure/fame (or what little there actually is) as the campaign manager for Bader Qarmout whose an also-ran tea party candidate running in the NJ Republican primary for the Menendez seat. All ready some shenanigans are being [called whether incompetency of malice aforethought who knows. Has CP had anything to say about it? Curious if Schlafly would jump on this failed bandwagon.

The fundamental misunderstanding here, whether deliberate or accidental, is the "trying to relate mass to the speed of light" thing, wheras it's not. The speed of light's the constant there, it's relating mass to energy. The constant could have been anything and Andy would still ridicule it. It could be π, 42, 5647.364, anything, but it happens to be c2. There's probably a reason for that, but I don't know it.
The other fundamental mistake is that idea that E=mc2 has never yielded anything useful. Nuclear power. And nuclear bombs, for that matter. So, in short, either Andy's an idiot or he's lying out of his arse, and I'd bet on "all of the above". Some day, he's just going to have to come to terms with reality's liberal bias. Speaking of which, in what way could a formula that he happens to think is wrong be liberal? Oh, yeah, he thinks it's wrong, that's why. --Veni Vidi.png Feci.png 10:57, 25 March 2012 (UTC)

I'm just reading the excellent Measuring Eternity by Martin Gorst and the great physicist Lord Kelvin who was also an anti-Darwinist couldn't believe that the age of the Earth was old enough to account for evolution. Before the discovery of radioactivity then the sun was indeed thought to be something like a lump of burning coal and there were doomsday scenarios in Victorian times as they were concerned about how long the sun would last. Kelvin thought that the sun's heat came from gravitational collapse and although his initial computations were in the region of 90 my he managed to whittle that down to 20 my as he 'refined the calculations and assumptions'. s computed the age of the earth. So if you only believe in a 6000 year old earth then you are probably sufficiently denialist to disregard the latest science. When Rutherford explained the sun's energy through radioactivity one newspaper printed "Doomsday Postponed" for the first time.

What baffles me about this is not that he denies e=mc2, but that for some reason that the idea is liberal. What on earth would it have to do with an American Liberal political theory, platform, or idea? How could it ever further the means of the the party? What 'liberal' use does it possibly serve? I can understand decrying ideas like health science and other areas 'liberal' as a cry against government health care, or something. But really, I wonder why he just doesn't say 'anti-christian' instead of 'liberal' in cases like these. Is he trying to make his statements look more legitimate, or that his website isn't blatantly religious? He doesn't seem to care on other pages. This man discombobulates me to the extreme. ±Knightoftldrsig.pngKnightOfTL;DRcritical thinking is the key to success! 14:12, 25 March 2012 (UTC)

Of course the article has expanded over timeimg(by AugustOimg).... to include unrefuted evidence for E=mc2 i.e contradicting the summary. It doesn't seem Andy really cares or perhaps he just doesn't know what to do (his best attempt was [1]img). Someone else suggested they do what they normally do and just delete any evidence which doesn't fit in to their pet theory [2]img. Nil Einne (talk) 17:50, 25 March 2012 (UTC)
"E=mc2 is a meaningless, almost nonsensical, statement in physics that purports to relate light to matter. In fact, no theory has successfully unified the laws governing mass (i.e., gravity) with the laws governing light (i.e., electromagnetism). Simply put, E=mc2 is liberal claptrap. " I am guess Andy wrote that part of that page. Whoever did fundamentally misunderstands what the formula even means. Somehow they are tying mass-energy equivalence into a Grand Unified Theory while claiming mass is just gravity. The mind boggles. Anyway prime example of facts meaning whatever the writer wants them to mean (in which then they are no longer facts). I wouldn't be surprised if a sincere editor like AugustO (who may be the last one) attempts to fix this, only to be overruled by Andy (with his brother jumping in to defend the formula but ultimately changing nothing).--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 19:07, 25 March 2012 (UTC)

It was obvious then that lithium was being disintegrated into two α-particles with a total energy release of 17.2 million volts. This energy could be provided by a diminution of mass of 0.0184 mass units.
is an invocation of E=mc^2, despite Andy's claim that it is a counter-example. Will Andy just respond "la, la, la, la" or provide a more convoluted proof that he's right? Whoover (talk) 17:13, 26 March 2012 (UTC)

Incredibly stupid or incredibly obtuse?[edit]

Andy links to a Nobel prizeimg lecture where a physicist talks about measuring the energy output and mass lost in a nuclear fission, and because it doesn't explicitly mention e=mc^2, dismisses the relevance of the experiment.

Is it actually possible he's that stupid? He managed to get in to Harvard for goat's sake. He must at least be good at passing exams. Is he just being deliberately obtuse, because Jesus? --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 15:06, 25 March 2012 (UTC)

Yes. It's possible to get into some of these colleges with somewhat reduced aptitude if a person has a lot of money, connections, an important family, or other bonuses. All he'd need are very good grades, some additional accolades, a good essay, and the promise that his family would pay lots and lots of money over time to the college as an alumni. Chances are Princeton let him in with this sort of promise, especially because he attended a shiny private school, which indicates the cash of the family too. Then with his cred from Princeton, chances are Harvard was happy to have him/his wallet. It doesn't always take raw smarts to get into these colleges. It sometimes simply takes influential parents and the evidence of a steady stream of dough. ±Knightoftldrsig.pngKnightOfTL;DRwalls of text while-u-wait 15:37, 25 March 2012 (UTC)

Let me paraphrase something Psy once said that just stuck in my head: I think Andy knows a lot, I don't think he understands a lot.
Also, let's be honest, law isn't exactly the most demanding thing one can study. Now to be a great lawyer you have to be intelligent, but the average lawyer needs patience and a good memory and is pretty well served. And patience and good memory aren't exactly facilitators for critical thinking. Also one needs a patience to not develope a death wish. --ʤɱ pirate 22:57, 25 March 2012 (UTC)
On the money side of things, it's not even 'ROLLING IN DOUGH,' that attracts universities, but 'You probably will consistently have enough cash to give a sum of money to the college each year when they send out letters to alumni.' Somebody with an influential parent, who was able to go to private school for a pretty big part of his life, paired with very good grades at said school looks like somebody who will consistently send money, attend functions, do all of that stuff that makes the college money off people who don't go there anymore. Not to say this is THE explanation, but I will say that growing up near Boston, only a short bus ride away from Harvard and other schools... there is an internal culture there that definitely swings in the way of influence and notability over merit more than one would think. Not to say that it's easy to get in to such a school, or that the academic demands aren't brain-shreddingly high. But from the feel of the establishments (and tales of both students and professors) I can't help but feel that Andy fits right in with it. Not the nice kind of fitting in. The kind that suggests he belongs in some dark corner: admitted on marginal interest to fill a quota, to spend the semesters gibbering in the rafters like a crazed possum.±Knightoftldrsig.pngKnightOfTL;DRgarrulous en guerre 23:14, 25 March 2012 (UTC)
If you're doing trial law, doesn't a law degree more or less train you to be a crank? The point is to create the "strongest" argument for the prosecution or defense as the case may be and to ignore whether the defendant is actually guilty or not. Nebuchadnezzar (talk) 18:34, 26 March 2012 (UTC)
In one sense, all law works that way. Your goal is to present your facts in such a way as to convince a jury, a judge, or other intersted parts (if its not litigation) to do what you want. You sift through laws, facts, and testimony to present the world AS YOU WANT IT SEEEN. Then, you go on to convince yourself that what you see, and what you present are the ONLY way to see things. It's very good training for being a radical in any world. including a religious conservative. Pink mowse.pngGodot What do cats dream about? 18:38, 26 March 2012 (UTC)
Yep. Godot's got it. As a philosophy student, I was sorely disappointed to learn so early on that litigation isn't about true, fairness, justice, or right. It's about outcomes and increasingly a fundamentally dishonest approach to dispute resolution. At least ADR admits that resolution of disputes is about incentives, emotions, and transactional costs.

If I practiced law in that fashion, I'd be sued for malpractice and hauled before a disciplinary board. Far from convincing ourselves that what we see and present are the only way to see things, we have to be able to anticipate what the other side will say; in fact, first-year law students and even paralegal students are taught to analyze the strengths and weaknesses of both sides of an argument. Also, at least in my practice area and in my country, I have to make a timely disclosure of all material information, including (especially) information that undercuts my position. If I don't, the consequences are dire. ... of liberals? (talk) 12:51, 27 March 2012 (UTC)
