Most visited entries...[edit]

How many visits would it take to affect the rankings? Just wondering... — Unsigned, by: 86.14.158.80 / talk / contribs

I suspect the reason they don't include the numbers for the ranked pages is that the numbers are embarrassingly small. MDB (talk) 15:38, 21 June 2012 (UTC)
At a tangent, it also suggests Andy could omit any embarrassing results, like one of Ken's kinky compendia or an Ed Poor stub or Den Bosch. Pity.
cp:Law Terms D got deleted, but there are still 25 other lists of law terms ripe for the visiting.--

Kriss AkabusiAAAWOOOGAAAR!!1 16:35, 21 June 2012 (UTC)

But... but... that would be deceit! And we all know only liberals do that, not good, right-thinking conservatives like Andy! MDB (talk) 17:56, 21 June 2012 (UTC)
Fortunately, as luck would have it, there are no law terms that start with 'D' like "Defence", "Damages", "Deposition", "Damnum Absque Injuria", "District Court". Jimaginator (talk) 19:45, 21 June 2012 (UTC)
Law Terms D was one of my favorites and I am happy to claim the majority of those page views, although others joined in later of course. Even when the page got deleted it was a sort of triumph because it buggered up all their Law Term lists which were a complete farce in the first place as Andy couldn't get his teeny brain around categories. Clickbot (talk) 20:56, 21 June 2012 (UTC)
cp:Special:PopularPages is the list, which may have several candidates worthy of boosting if someone is planning something. as for Law terms, I think TK deleted all of them except cp:Law Terms 1 and cp:Law Terms 4. K61824Insomnia? Masturbate till you pass out 21:44, 22 June 2012 (UTC)

God forsaking true conservatives again?[edit]

I see those nasty, liberal, self-centered Miami Heat heathens whupped those God-fearing Oklahoma boys. I guess God does move in mysterious ways. PsyGremlinParlez! 06:49, 22 June 2012 (UTC)

For those not in the know, back on June 13th, Andy boasted that "Christianity triumphs over self-centerednessimg" because Oklahoma City defeated Miami in game one of the NBA Finals, and good ol' Oklahoma City has as its main start the Very Christiantm Kevin Durant. Of course Andy, knowing shit about sports as he does, spoke up too soon as the NBA Finals are a best of seven series. Well those same self-centered Miami Heat players managed to pull off four subsequent victories in a row and winning the championship; apparently showing that "self-centerness wins over Christianity" if we are to go by Andy's reckoning. Think he will mention the Heat's crowning as the 2012 NBA Champions?--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 07:16, 22 June 2012 (UTC)
A-ha-ha-ha-ha! I just looked up the Thunder's team page. So much for "outspoken Christian" Durant:
  • Q: WHAT HOLIDAY DO YOU LOOK FORWARD TO THE MOST? A: Christmas. I like the jolly spirit.
  • Q: WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR FAVORITE CHRISTMAS MEMORIES? A: Transformers 3
Yup, that sounds like some real Christian ideas there. --PsyGremlinSiarad! 09:43, 22 June 2012 (UTC)
You realise that this will mean Transformers 3 will be added to the Greatest Conservative Movies list? rpeh •TCE 12:43, 22 June 2012 (UTC)
The director is on good terms with the military, of course it's conservative! Which means so's Pearl Harbour, Armageddon and Revenge of the Fallen. None of which are particularly great. --Veni Vidi.png Feci.png 13:28, 22 June 2012 (UTC)
Breaking news!!! It’s God’s Fault We Lost The Game (ok, not quite breaking news, but funny. And relevant. --PsyGremlinFale! 13:51, 22 June 2012 (UTC)

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────And the AndyTruthimg is "After being schooled in Christian selflessness by losing the first game to Kevin Durant and the Oklahoma City Thunder, the Miami Heat uses strong teamwork to win the NBA Championship - and then thanks the fans". rpeh •TCE 15:44, 22 June 2012 (UTC)

dafuq did I just read? --PsyGremlin말하십시오 16:03, 22 June 2012 (UTC)
That's a pathetic attempt to save face, so why didn't Oklahoma City use their own "Christian selflessness" to win those games? Oklahoma suddenly go atheist? Also hilarious is the statement about "thanking the fans"; what champion sports team doesn't thank the fans? That is as great of an "insight" as saying they won because they got the basketball through the hoop more.--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 16:16, 22 June 2012 (UTC)

Hey, Terry![edit]

You trumpet pretty much every bit of gossip about Obama you hear, especially when it comes to his parentage.

Here's a new one for you!

Obama's mother was born a man. (Warning: Link is to Snopes which, great source of info though it is, is lousy with pop-ups.) MDB (talk) 11:30, 22 June 2012 (UTC)

That is the dumbest fucking thing I've ever heard. Senator Harrison (talk) 11:36, 22 June 2012 (UTC)
WTF? Transexuals are infertile; we don't have the biochemical knowledge to create functional testicles/prostate or ovaries/wombs yet. And there is serious ethical issues with a testicle/ovary transplant. CS Miller (talk) 11:45, 22 June 2012 (UTC)
I'm not sure what the birther equivalent of Poe's Law is, but I think it might apply here. When you look at the long list of bullshit right wing nutjobs are willing to believe about Obama, this one isn't too far from the previous record holder for idiocy. I suspect the law would be something like "Without a winking smiley [...] impossible to come up with a theory barring Obama from being President that some racist won't gleefully pass on to other racists". rpeh •TCE 11:59, 22 June 2012 (UTC)
I will grant that at least this one doesn't open with "Obama isn't eligible to be President because..." MDB (talk) 12:04, 22 June 2012 (UTC)
Give it few days, someone will try to pass it off. --Veni Vidi.png Feci.png 13:31, 22 June 2012 (UTC)
Actually, this is easy. If it's true that Obama's mama (Obamama?) was born a man, then Obama cannot be President. The Constitution requires he a "natural born citizen." Since it would be be impossible for someone born a man to give birth to him, he would, therefore, be an unnaturally born citizen. QED. MDB (talk) 13:41, 22 June 2012 (UTC)
So wait, doesn't that mean Jesus wouldn't be eligible? --Kels (talk) 14:39, 22 June 2012 (UTC)
That whole "born in Bethlehem" thing is a disqualifier already. MDB (talk) 15:17, 22 June 2012 (UTC)
You'd think in a Christian Nation(tm) like USAmerica, there'd be a special exemption written into the Holy Constitution. Maybe it's in the fine print somewhere. --Kels (talk) 15:26, 22 June 2012 (UTC)
As if it would matter. As soon as he said something about the rich, Andy and Terry would instantly call him a socialist.
And imply that he's a Zeuslim since he was born in the Roman Empire. (Yes, I know, Zeus was Greek, Jupiter was the Roman equivalent. But it's funnier my way.) MDB (talk) 16:47, 22 June 2012 (UTC)
Even comparing it to some of the rest of the Obama rumors (What birthers really believe for instance) that one is batshit insane. It gets into not even wrong territory. MDB (talk) 12:02, 22 June 2012 (UTC)

I'll have you know he weighs his words "with the same exquisite care with which a nuclear weaponist weighs weapons-grade plutonium." Which means we should expect a smoking crater somewhere in NJ any moment now. --Kels (talk) 14:23, 22 June 2012 (UTC)

What does Snopes say about this harlot? [2] --99.108.68.168 (talk) 16:06, 22 June 2012 (UTC)
I made the mistake of reading the bottom half of that. Man, what the hell is wrong with people? That there's some real hate speech even if some of it is Poe. Is BoN Conservapedia's very own village idiot? Or just someone taking the piss? I can never tell. Ajkgordon (talk) 17:13, 22 June 2012 (UTC)

For what it's worth, I assumed this thing was "Obama's 'mother' is a man and therefore not his real mother therefore he's not really an American", not "Obama's biological mother is genetically male". Slightly saner, although it still requires that "there's been a conspiracy to help Obama since he was born" theory. X Stickman (talk) 19:03, 22 June 2012 (UTC)

Older meme on Ann[edit]

This is a year-old article, about Stanly having an affair with a radical black journalist. I found it bouncing from the links you all gave. Tell me it's a spoof!Green mowse.pngGodotTut tut, looks like rain 16:10, 22 June 2012 (UTC)

I'm afraid it's not. Here's what makes it even "better": Wing Nut Daily has articles about this theory, and readers are angry about it... because were it true, then Barack Obama would actually be a citizen! Stunning, truly stunning. --TheLateGatsby (talk) 20:35, 22 June 2012 (UTC)
From the comments. "F.M. DAVIS WAS A HOMOSEXUAL AND MAY HAVE ABUSED BARACK H. OBAMA--AS HOMOSEXUALS ARE WONT TO DO!". God damn, I love these guys.--ThunderstruckMONKEYS 21:36, 22 June 2012 (UTC)
I've never looked at Wing Nut Daily before. It looks like the place that right-wing loons go when CP is getting too moderate and sensible. The Real James Brown (talk) 22:36, 22 June 2012 (UTC)

LA Riots media's fault[edit]

Apparently I missed this gem of an article: Deaths directly attributed to the liberal mediaimg. Unsurprsingly, most of the examples don't really seem to be directly attributable to the "liberal media". Most are of the form: person X saw media thing Y and did horrible act Z. Anyway, Andy adds this to the articleimg:

The liberal media overhyped racial issues in connection with the first trial for the beating of Rodney King to such an extent that more than 50 people were murdered, and thousands injured, when the media reported the "not guilty" verdicts.

Let's not focus on the corrupt justice system that allowed such a horrible decision, the socioeconomic conditions that led people to riot or even the murderers themselves. Not, let's blame the media for *gasp* reporting a story. --Night Jaguar (talk) 23:38, 22 June 2012 (UTC)

Since when is WWF wrestling the liberal media? Whoover (talk) 00:30, 23 June 2012 (UTC)
Since Andy was able to tie something bad to it. Also since shut up, that's when. «-Bfa-» 00:34, 23 June 2012 (UTC)
That guy, who was caught on tCaP, totally the media fault he's dead, had they not run such a vile liberal show, he would be alive.--il'Dictator Mikal 00:38, 23 June 2012 (UTC)
Well of course, Andy, the conservative media never report on anything nasty that never causes people to be angry when they read or hear about it.
I also find it interesting that the new LA riots section is headed "Rodney King" with a link to the article about him. Is Andy suggesting that the "lamestream media" drowned Mr. King?--Spud (talk) 04:10, 23 June 2012 (UTC)
In Andy's world there's no such thing as a "Conservative" news media. The news process is inherently liberal so that's why only liberals can be responsible. Consider the 2008 election: News reporters claimed Barack Obama had been elected president, which is liberal claptrap. Even on Fox, where you'd hope they would attempt to be "fair and balanced" the reporters accepted this story. A true Conservative isn't interested in hearing things they don't agree with just because they're true, each of the Conservatives would have their own private bubble in which they'd receive only reassurance that whatever they currently believe is correct. 82.69.171.94 (talk) 07:30, 24 June 2012 (UTC)

Den Bosch redux[edit]

I see Andy moved Den Bosch back to 's-Hertogenbosch. I bet that hurts, doesn't it, Ed? Redchuck.gif ГенгисIs the Pope a Catholic?Moderator 08:06, 23 June 2012 (UTC)

Oh lawks. Ed's going to be on a chest-thumping rampage over there. I feel sorry for random editors. PsyGremlinTala! 08:15, 23 June 2012 (UTC)
I expect Ed to keep his feet still for a couple of days (he isn't editing at wp:Special:Contributions/Ed_Poor, neither at the moment). But then he will hunt AugustO down. larronsicut fur in nocte 11:11, 23 June 2012 (UTC)
Ed's back editing at CP again so we shall see soon. I think he'll ignore the 's-Hertogenbosch decision and steer clear of August for a while. Petty retribution will come, but not today. rpeh •TCE 14:24, 25 June 2012 (UTC)
I think everything went pretty well for Ed. He couldn't make the change himself, because he doesn't correct mistakes that others point out. So, Andy corrected the butt-stupid page move and Ed gets to continue in his imagined feud with August. He saves face (not admitting error) while basking in the glow of pretend righteous indignation. What more could he want? Phiwum (talk) 15:44, 25 June 2012 (UTC)

It's Stubby Time![edit]

Ed's treating us a wealth of knowledge sucky one-liner "articles":

User188 in da house! --PsyGremlinHable! 17:02, 25 June 2012 (UTC)

Looks like his fascination with gays is coming to the fore again. --Kels (talk) 17:52, 25 June 2012 (UTC)
He didn't even capitalize the beginning of the "sentence" in the third one. Beautiful. «-Bfa-» 18:00, 25 June 2012 (UTC)
I shouldn't care, I really shouldn't, but Ed's stubs sometimes make me want to scream. How the "great Wikipedian"™ can create such abysmal shallow articles without proper categories, references or formatting is an act of egoistic, pompous vacuity. Redchuck.gif ГенгисIs the Pope a Catholic?Moderator 19:48, 25 June 2012 (UTC)

AugustO attempts to contact Ken[edit]

AugustO: @Conservative, Please stay on topic and sleep more. I contact you here on Aschlafly's page because yours is blocked.img

Ken: Hey AugustO, don't bother with writing to Aschlafly; he will probably ignore you.img

I am new here. Is this Conservative guy normal? Open minded (talk) 10:28, 23 June 2012 (UTC)

I'm new-ish as well, but as far as I've seen over at CP normalcy gets you blocked. Ben [talk] 10:37, 23 June 2012 (UTC)
By Conservapedia standards, Ken is perfectly normal. Compared to the real world, however, he's a gibbering simpleton who isn't allowed out in public unaccompanied.--PsyGremlin講話 10:38, 23 June 2012 (UTC)
Either that or the best troll ever. I'm really not sure which and I've been here for over half a year now. Rest assured that whenever he opens his mouth you can see the IQ of the entirety of Buffalo go into freefall like it was just blasted downwards out of the airlock of the ISS with a bit of explosive decompression to give it a push. --Veni Vidi.png Feci.png 11:06, 23 June 2012 (UTC)
Ken comes out with a load of weird crap which suggests that he's not mentally well. He once edited for 30 hours straight and last year went on a three-month "sabbatical" from CP, in the first week of which he made over 500 edits. Check out our article on him and watch out for teh transitional animal teh flyin kitteh. El TajDon't make me do stuff 11:16, 23 June 2012 (UTC)
Most here think he's literally mentally ill. Pity him and then ignore him. --Night Jaguar (talk) 11:37, 23 June 2012 (UTC)
He is ill. And AugustO is delusional when he thinks:I'm sure that Aschlafly is aware of your problems, and I'm certain that he'll help in any way if you ask him. Andy is the real prick in the whole story: he didn't care for TK - and he doesn't care for Ken.
BTW bwochinski: you can't be that new, knowing Ken's secret identity...larronsicut fur in nocte 11:45, 23 June 2012 (UTC)
Oh, I didn't realize there was a secret identity, my apologies to Ken for so brashly piercing the veil of mystery. Ben [talk] 00:01, 24 June 2012 (UTC)
Thank you for the link to the article. Ken always seemed to me even weirder than others. BTW we just got a honourable mention from himimg. Open minded (talk) 13:43, 23 June 2012 (UTC)
Nobody knows enough about Ken to say what his diagnosis is. Except we all know enough about Ken to pontificate about it, so this is where I'm going to break my rule and get real obnoxious: as this site's best informed resident armchair psychiatrist, I'm convinced it's a Cluster A personality disorder. I previously thought schizophrenia but I'm only aware of one full blown psychotic episode and it was of a relatively short duration. My receptionist will take your payment on your way out. Thank you. — Unsigned, by: Nutty Roux / talk / contribs 14:12, 23 June 2012 (UTC)

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────Ooh, ooh! Ken's shout out. He's mocking us, saying "I don't think your strategies/tactics are working" because a commentator said "Rationalwiki looks like conservapedia. I’ll stick with regular wikipedia thanx." So... either he means that like CP, RW is the go-to source for all True Conservatives, but people still go to WP. Or he means that like CP, RW is an utter failure and people still go to WP? --PsyGremlin話しなさい 14:15, 23 June 2012 (UTC)

Reader comment on liberal/RINO mainstream media website? Is Ken relying on hearsay? Does he lack the machismo to formulate true conservative insights? --wwwwolf (barks/growls) 16:02, 23 June 2012 (UTC)
@Psy (and Conservative I suppose) it doesn't matter either way as we're not trying to be an encyclopaedia, which CP have explicitly claimed to be since its formation. El TajDon't make me do stuff 10:35, 24 June 2012 (UTC)
True, in spite of all his failings Karajou is perhaps the only one who actually tried to walk the encyclopedia path - although how one differentiates between a conservative article on Great Tits and a liberal one is beyond me. I don't think that any of Ken's articles have been "encyclopedic" in the accepted educational sense; they're all polemical diatribes. Even Andy has largely given up on the educational side; everything he does now seems to be outright political or loony-insight blogging. Redchuck.gif ГенгисIs the Pope a Catholic?Moderator 12:05, 24 June 2012 (UTC)
If by "walk the encyclopedia path" you mean "copy/pasting other people's work into Conservapedia," then yes. --PsyGremlin講話 12:16, 24 June 2012 (UTC)

Don't ever change Ken[edit]

I see the master debater has just deleted and oversighted all reference to Willingham (whom he blocked) questioning his bullshit turtles post. he even removed Andy's reversion of the original double post. Way to win an argument, coward. --PsyGremlinTala! 15:27, 23 June 2012 (UTC)

He's not necessarily a coward. His internal logic is just incomprehensible to regular people. He's otherwise somewhat lucid, though always subject to weird magical and other strange thinking. He had a break of some sort two summers ago when he came onto aSK and made a number of strange threats to Human's business. If you want to talk about cowards and sneaks, look no further than PJR for conveniently sweeping it under the rug and refusing to cooperate with providing Ken's location information in case Human needed to get a restraining order. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 16:44, 23 June 2012 (UTC)
Lol, "90/10" as the reason to revert and oversight. Looks like Conservative can't satisfactorily answer Willingham's questions! Looks like someone can't escape their intellectual bunnyhole! :) More cute pictures can be found HERE and HERE. etc. etc. etc... AndyToad.gifNorsemanCyser Melomel 19:03, 23 June 2012 (UTC)

It's a RINO feature now because it doesn't work in in the conservastive search bar. 99.50.98.145 (talk) 22:23, 24 June 2012 (UTC)

It might actually make some sense for two reasons (1) people putting typos into address bar (2) people putting typos into search engines. I remember, back in the early days (2001ish), WP used to do this too, but not any more. I guess (2) is less of an issue nowadays, since Google at least corrects common typos to the desired search term. But (1) is still relevant. (((Zack Martin))) 22:48, 25 June 2012 (UTC)

Presidential Nicknames[edit]

Apparently, all it takes for a President to acquire a nickname is for a buffoon for use the name once. MDB (talk) 12:10, 25 June 2012 (UTC)

You forgot the bit about "and be Jpatt." --PsyGremlinPrata! 12:24, 25 June 2012 (UTC)
I love how we went more than two centuries with three or four negative presidential nicknames then, bam!, Obama has 13 (plus many more that would offend even CP sensibilities). That can only be proof positive that Obama is the worst president ever -- and by a large margin. Nobody with an open mind would allow for any other explanation.

Andy fails reading comprehension... again[edit]

Andy: "This is pathetic: Obama's reelection team resorts to trying to raise money from Americans living in foreign nations."

The article Andy cites does point out Obama is raising funds overseas, but the article also goes on to say:

Mitt Romney, meanwhile, had received almost $144,000 in campaign contributions outside the 50 states, according to FEC records. Several supporters said he’s expected to attend a fundraiser in London when he travels there for the Olympics this summer.

The Romney campaign doesn’t publicly list its bundlers and did not respond to questions regarding his fundraising efforts abroad.

Last July, the former Massachusetts governor attended a $2,500-per-person fundraiser in London hosted by high-powered donors like hedge fund manager Louis Bacon and New York Jets owner Woody Johnson. Dwight Poler, an executive with Bain Capital, the firm Romney previously worked for, and Raj Bhattacharyya, managing director at Deutsche Bank, also co-hosted the event.

Yep, Andy, the word "pathetic" definitely applies here.

Funny, anyone else would have Tebow top this list. Sanchez is considered the better QB because , well he can throw. Pi 3:14 (talk) 12:47, 24 June 2012 (UTC)
That's just more proof that wikipedia is liberal claptrap. They don't tell it like it is and have any articles about things that are overrated!--TheLateGatsby (talk) 14:35, 24 June 2012 (UTC)
Strange that Andy has to ask about David Beckham "Is he socially liberal like others on this list?". Schlafly suddenly lacks the conviction to say that all Limeys are godless socialists. Maybe if someone could prove to him that Beckham believes that the Earth was created in six days 6,000 years ago and that homosexuals can be cured, Andy would take his name off the list.--Spud (talk) 14:55, 24 June 2012 (UTC)
Beckham being on the list is weird. 1. He isn't overrated - he used to be brilliant, though maybe not right up there with Pele and Maradona - but he was 3-4 years past his best when he went to the US of A. Still, to understand that, you have to take a balanced view of the facts, so that won't be Andy then. 2. There's no evidence that Becks has serious political views of any kind, let alone lib'rul ones. Why speculate, Andy? The Real James Brown (talk) 15:57, 24 June 2012 (UTC)
Tiger Woods used to be staggeringly brilliant. Of course the commentators all want to talk about him: will he ever recover his spectacular form of 5-10 years ago? Schalfly, you're a git. The Real James Brown (talk) 15:59, 24 June 2012 (UTC)
It's hilarious seeing the "I love Tebow because he's loud about his religion" crowd talk him up over Sanchez, especially since most of them don't even realize that out of the QBs who get a chance in the league, those are easily two of the worst. Q0 (talk) 16:00, 24 June 2012 (UTC)
I was going to say something about Agassi and Sampras but I can't be bothered. Waste of time to point out facts to the useful twits in Andy's branch of the Schlafly family. (Is the beer his cousins make any good? Has he drunk too much of it?) The Real James Brown (talk) 16:02, 24 June 2012 (UTC)

Some people just haven't thought this through.

Redchuck.gif ГенгисIs the Pope a Catholic?Moderator 14:33, 25 June 2012 (UTC)

I find Andy's assumption unwritten that Tebow would potentially be a voice for conservative politics amusing.
  • To my knowledge, Tebow has never made a partisan political statement. He did do one ad for a pro-life group, but that's it. He has hinted he might run for office someday, but that's presumably some years away.
  • Really, how much influence could Tebow have? The most I see is him appearing at political rallies, probably headlining over the actual candidate. MDB (talk) 12:41, 25 June 2012 (UTC)
I get that andy knows nothing about anything, but just glancing at "the lower half the internet" should have told Andy that Coloradoians have about as much use for Tewbow as we do for anyone the game after they lose. And Andy has Elway, who actually has a rep here, is into politics, and is a out and proud Republican. sighs... "I think it, therefore it IS".

OK, got it. Yes, a very weird selection. The Real James Brown (talk) 18:52, 25 June 2012 (UTC)

I love this list, 100 percent. He has athletes that are (or were at some point) clearly some of the best at their sports. Tiger Woods? Probably the best golfer ever. Magic Johnson? 5 titles, 3 mvp's and the best point guard ever. Kobe Bryant? 5 titles, 1 mvp, second-best shooting guard ever. Beckham? While I agree that his popularity and marketability was higher than his skills, he was also very, very good in his prime, and probably the best touch/bend ever. Agassi? No one sane thinks he was better than Sampras. Manning? Dragged multiple mediocre Colts teams to a perennial contender, won 1 super bowl and 4 mvp's. Mark Sanchez? Most people think he sucks, so I think he is properly rated. Meanwhile, Tim Teabow, who should be top of this list as Pi says, is 1000% overrated by Andy. Does he really not see it? Danoso (talk) 20:42, 24 June 2012 (UTC)

Also, in the link from the WIGO, the first reference mentions all the spectacular accomplishments by Tiger Woods. What a great slap in the face. Not surprisingly, the reference is already gone from the page in the link at the beginning of this section. Danoso (talk) 20:53, 24 June 2012 (UTC)
Idea for a spoof page: Overrated Conservative Commentators. And at number one this week... drum roll... [fill in this gap yourself]. The Real James Brown (talk) 23:10, 24 June 2012 (UTC)
Interesting list. A guy of Armenian and Assyrian descent, a Brit, an African American, an African American, another African American, one white American, a Canadian, a Hispanic, and someone of mixed race. Hmmmm.... Also, under Kobe Bryant it notes that Phil Jackson says he's "not on the high level of Michael Jordan". Well, one can still be very good without being on the level of the greatest fuckin' basketball player of all time. But what does Jackson actually say in the reference given?
"I'm with (ESPN's) Bill Simmons on this," he added. "We have to take Michael Jordan out of the equation. Stop comparing anyone to Michael Jordan. It's just not fair. He was remarkable.... (Kobe) doesn't shoot the same percentage (.455) as Michael (.497). He has the same characteristics as Michael, but he's not the same player. It takes nothing away from him — he's a great player in his own right."
As usual, Andy probably didn't read beyond the headline. Mathematics, physics and now sports. I look forward to seeing what else Andy tries to politicize.

Is Coca Cola part of the liberal conspiracy and only stopped from total supremacy from the conservatives at Pepsi? --Night Jaguar (talk) 08:51, 25 June 2012 (UTC)

Why do either of you assume that Andy regularly goes to church? This is the man who defined "churchgoer" as "a person who makes an effort, during the 168 hours in a week, to attend a church service"img, a revision to his original definition which required that one "find time" to attend. I strongly suspect that nigh every week, Andy makes an effort but finds himself just too darned busy to find the time to attend. The only failures Andy readily forgives are those he makes himself. Empathy and selfishness are essentially synonyms, evidently. Phiwum (talk) 14:56, 25 June 2012 (UTC)

I think it's really a great example of what's so bad about CP. Even if they didn't have their insane political agenda but were just some run of the mill wiki, the terrible behavior of the mods (who are really the only core users on there) would scare off any polite newcomer who would be interested in contributing.
I mean, just look at that talk page. Half a dozen people pointed out a clear and obvious error, including me who is an actual resident of the town in question. People remain polite while they're forced into a state of near begging to correct the obvious mistake, we pull in multiple clear cut sources backing our statements, I even translate a bunch of stuff for them, and what do we get? Ed just bullies on irrelevant points, makes thinly veiled threats on my user talk page and then takes out his anger on all wiki articles of Dutch towns, all the while ignoring the arguments until another mod comes to fix his mess. And why? He didn't even have some bullshit political point or batshit agenda to push.. He just didn't want to admit that he could be wrong..
Really Ed, nobody at all would have thought less of you for not knowing what the common usages are of a certain Dutch town's name. But this childish and bullyish behavior about something so small and irrelevant that nobody would have thought it would need half a dozen people arguing against you, this behavior is exactly why I think Conservapedia is a terrible wiki, since the only people who are willing to put up with your shit must have a serious agenda to push themselves.. -GTac (talk) 10:02, 26 June 2012 (UTC) (moved comment from section above since this section is more actual and relevant)
Ed has contributed very little of substance to CP and is an admin there largely because he got the boot from the liberals on WP. He pretty much uses CP as somewhere to rebuild his own vanity and, lacking a cat of his own, somwhere to vent his own anger.

Whatever this Midas-in-reverse touches is soiled:

  • remember the article on J.R.R. Tolkien? He blocked cp:User:Tolkiendil for vandalism, an amusing discussion about this can be found here. Amusing for everyone but Tolkiendil, that is. Ed claimed that he had to clean up subtle damage, done by Tolkiendil, and he would start the cleansing at cp:Éowyn. But he never edited the article again after Tolkiendil was banned.
  • I believe in being bold, a habit I learned to cherish at Wikipedia. But I also believe in correcting my mistakes. As I said before, his way to handle mistakes is to get rid of the witnesses...

His merge suggestion is simply transparent. As Larron says, his notion of cleaning up mistakes is to get rid of witnesses -- and evidence.

For good measure, let's also propose the first two cities on the Dutch Cities and Towns categoryimg (skipping Amsterdam, of course) also be merged, so that we don't appear two obvious.

I think Ken has already tested the waters and seen how far he can go. There were a number of times in the past 12 months when he seemed to be saying to Andy, "Come and have a go if you think you're hard enough", such as when he challenged the validity of the Conservative Bible and the Conservative dictionary and when he disagreed with Andy's notions that Star Trek was a conservative TV show and "YMCA" was a conservative song. Not to mention the challenge he posed by nearly turning the entire site into Beasts Blog.
Ken seems to be doing nothinhg more here than giving a shout out to his buddy Shockofgod. It is a strange way for him to do it, though. A more normal Ken way would be to create a page with a title llike "Essay: Shockofgod slaughters blind Internet atheists with his machine gun and sets their bodies on fire".--Spud (talk) 04:20, 27 June 2012 (UTC)
Hold on, Andy tried to posit Star Trek, the show in which there is a very liberal Federation in charge (Prime Directive: Don't interfere with pre-warp civilization, they should be allowed to develop on their own), science including evolution pretty much rules everything and (back in the 60s now) there was a Russian, a Japanese person and an African American woman all part of the recurring crew, that was created by an atheist no less, as conservative?

This happens a lot when Schlafly edits the main page. Generally an hour or two later Kendoll comes and reads about how it's broken over here and fixes the problem.

I still can't believe that John Roberts, of all people was responsible for ObamaCare being upheld.

There's two things I'm looking forward to coming from the rabid right the GOP has encouraged. 1. The foaming at the mouth we're going to see when Obama wins a second term, and how it's going to grow over the next 4 years. 2. If the GOP get in in 2016, how they're going to deal with this beast. I somehow doubt the tea party will magically disappear. --PsyGremlinSprich! 15:02, 28 June 2012 (UTC)
I'm not sure I agree. The tea party is still around, but it's no where near the factor it was in 2010. And the tea party philosophy was already out there -- it just coalesced into a group with a name after Obama took office. MDB (talk) 15:05, 28 June 2012 (UTC)
If I didn't know every single person associated with CNV was an absolutely spineless and powerless crazy old men barely one step above being the local "homeless crazy guy", I would find that article fucking scary.

Okay, I realize Terry et al are basically the internet equivalent of a few drunks in a bar agreeing that "somebody outta shoot that sumbitch", but I also know the Secret Service has a long-time philosophy that "there's no such thing as a joke about assassinating the President." On the other paw, they'd love a visit from the Secret Service, because it would seem to them that big bad Barack is sending his jack-booted thugs after them. MDB (talk) 16:07, 28 June 2012 (UTC)
(EC) What Whoover just said. Hasn't Purpura, by any definition of the act just threatened Obama's life given the past usage of that phrase? Add to that him calling for a mutiny (or would that be barratry because he's only talking to the officers?), is he trying to get a visit from some branch of law enforcement to further his persecution complex? -- Iscariot Andy Schlafly for Congress 2012! 16:11, 28 June 2012 (UTC)
"Obviously, no one told the two-bit Marxist usurper illegally occupying the oval office that the sovereign States created the federal government..." I'd call Poe on this if I didn't already know it was serious, serious being used here in a very loose sense. Nebuchadnezzar (talk) 17:34, 28 June 2012 (UTC)

From the Secret Service[edit]

The Secret Service's own web site addresses the question.

The Secret Service is interested in legitimate information relating to threats, plans or attempts by individuals, groups or organizations to harm Secret Service protectees. However, the agency does not desire or solicit information pertaining to individuals or groups expressing legitimate criticism of, or political opposition to, the policies and decisions of the government or government officials.

CNAV would probably qualify as "pushing it." MDB (talk) 16:23, 28 June 2012 (UTC)

Purpura could very easily let slip a seemingly legitimate threat against the president. Hell, I wouldn't put it past him to actually threaten the president. When you believe the insane things he does, why not? They guy stole power and is literally doing everything he can think of to destroy America. He has been tried and convicted of treason in Purpura's mind. Does Terry proofread the articles? Either way, I'm sure he'd burn it fast enough. Occasionaluse (talk) 17:34, 28 June 2012 (UTC)

The first fruits of crazy[edit]

Terry posts his first response to the supreme court decision. It's a bit tame considering the vitriol we saw over Arizona ruling, but there are some gems. Firstly Reince Priebus telling the world that America's idea of health care reform is repealing the previous attempt at health care reform. Then there's the typical tea partier not-understanding-the-problem response. I especially liked including in the same manifesto "Free markets in health insurance" and "Tort reform, to restrain lawsuits..." Somehow I don't think she understands the meaning of "free markets." --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 19:25, 28 June 2012 (UTC)

Free markets? didn't we have that BEFORE Obamacare? Isn't that the reason for Obama care.--ThunderstruckMONKEYS 20:20, 28 June 2012 (UTC)
I like the part where he claims that this ruling gave the government the power "to tax anyone, for any reason, to force him or her to do anything it wants." He apparently has not heard of tax exemptions. Mjollnir.svgListenerXTalkerX 20:59, 28 June 2012 (UTC)
Law suits are not part of the market, they are something imposed on the market (and they should be). However they are out of hand in the medical field, which is why malpractice insurance is sooo high. For instance a certain percentage of children will be damaged during the birth process, it is not the result of incompetence it is a matter of chance. Incompetence on the part of an obstetrician can also cause damage to newborns. When ever a newborn comes out with any kind of damage, obstetricians get hit with multimillion dollar lawsuits. Since these lawsuits are so big ambulance chasers take them of for free (if they do not win) and fight hard, costing money to defend against. This free legal attack team encourages parents who really have no basis to sue the Ob-Gyn to sue them. This is why obstetricians pay hundreds of thousands of dollars a year in malpractice insurance. Not because they screw up a lot, but because they are on the hook for flukes of nature that occur during a very dicey process. That cost is then passed on to the patients who pay for the doctors services. As to free markets, you cannot sell health insurance across state borders. In states that mandate a lot (like New York) this yields higher health insurance costs and lower health insurance buy in. --Opcn with regards to regarding my regardliness 21:25, 28 June 2012 (UTC)

A large chunk of CP at this point is links elsewhere. They have to wait for the response from the right-wing blogosphere to link to it.
And really, this ruling was a bit of a surprise to most. A lot of people, across the spectrum, who were getting their responses ready on the assumption the mandate was overturned are scrambling to write pieces on the unexpected.
It's not unlike the fact that most news organizations have obituary pieces already prepared for prominent people who are older or in ill health. But they have to pull together a piece if someone dies unexpectedly. MDB (talk) 19:25, 28 June 2012 (UTC)

Dear Andy[edit]

You've been very quiet about global warming lately. Would that have anything to do with the record heatwave in the US? You know, like the heat wave they had last year? --PsyGremlin講話 15:11, 27 June 2012 (UTC)

Pffft. While nobody with an open mind would deny that cold snaps in winter disprove global warming, heatwaves in summer are totally not proof of it. Isn't it obvious? --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 15:54, 27 June 2012 (UTC)
Andy's standard MO in these matters to look over weather maps of the country and find the one spot where the temperature is slightly below normal, and make it seems as if the rest of the country doesn't exist. If that doesn't work he goes global, and manages to find one place where it's slightly cool. Absolute proof against global warming. DickTurpis (talk) 15:57, 27 June 2012 (UTC)

Purely on the heatwave point, here is a great NASA image showing the temperature difference.

She was one of the good people at CP, but just disappeared. MDB (talk) 12:14, 28 June 2012 (UTC)

She was basically chased away by TK, although I remember from the ZB discussions at sysop time, they all thought she was too liberal - mostly because she corrected their language and pointed out their copyright infringements. She did pop up a while ago and suggested some changes to something Andy had done and his reply was along the lines of "Shut up, bitch" and she went away again. Like Jensen, another valued contributor driven away by power-mad little men. --PsyGremlinSiarad! 12:40, 28 June 2012 (UTC)

What am I Missing?[edit]

In Presidential Vote, Mexicans Have Eye on a Tainted Pastimg caught my eye on MPR, aka "What the MSM isn't fully covering." It caught my eye because I read a big article on just that topic in New York Times, which is the poster child of the MSM. Lo and behold, it's a link to the Times article. Is this unclear on the concept? Or is my mistake looking for concepts? Whoover (talk) 02:11, 2 July 2012 (UTC)

It is indeed more lucid than usual, but there are so many Ken fingerprints on it that I'm torn. Using "likeability" four times in three sentences; 34 mentions of "ObamaCare", again usually in clusters; seven "economy"s or "economic"s in one paragraph - that's typical of Ken's awful writing.

I also love their "taxes must be uniform" argument, which invalidates the income tax because poor people don't pay it. Never pass up an opportunity to lobby for the fair "Sheriff of Nottingham" tax where all citizens pay a fixed dollar amount. You need $2 trillion? You have 200 million adults? Everybody pays $10,000. That's a uniform tax. And fear of the tax collector will have all the moochers getting jobs if they don't want to land in jail or worse.

Terry really believes those don't count.

Give it up, liberals! You'll never get me to read sources correctly![edit]

Nothing new here, probably not worth a WIGO, but I needed something to do while my coffee is heating up.

46 percent of Americans with sixteen long years of education under their belt believe the story of Adam and Eve is literally true.[5] The second sentence right after that saying in the source calls it ..remarkable demonstration of educational failure..[6]. And a little snipe at Ken: The source also claims from 1982, people who believed evolution occurred without any divine help increased nine percent (from 6% to 15%), and a belief that theistic evolution occurred dropped 38%. Thanks, Andy. AndyToad.gifNorsemanCyser Melomel 12:50, 1 July 2012 (UTC) EDIT: Forgot to add, Andy tries to claim credit at CP for this triumph.

If he's challenged about this, Andy will say that 46% of Americans believing the Genesis account is true is a fact. The idea that it constitutes a failure in education is an opinion and a liberal opinion at that.
Andy's never had a problem picking one sentence he likes out of a source and ignoring the rest. If it said in The Guardian, "Conservapedia is the best website to visit to see the disturbing, paralell world of willfully ignorant right-wingers in which evolution is pseudo-science and the Bible is the only science textbook you need', Andy would loudly proclaim, "Atheist British newspaper admits that 'Conservapedia is the best website to vist'".--Spud (talk) 08:41, 2 July 2012 (UTC)

Can't be about machismo and grunting because that would exclude beach volleyball as well. Beach volleyball and synchronized swimming have only one thing in common: bathing suits.

Of course it's "impose." If it weren't, why would an ostensibly straight man care if gays could marry? The argument continues to be that gay marriage harms straight people. I'm not the best to explain how because it makes no sense, but half the population seems to believe that gay marriage is bad for straight people.

Our moon is objectively spectacular, other moons are objectively not spectacular, more people agree that moon=pretty than agree that 2+2=4, deny this and lose all credibility, etc., ad nauseam, and so forth. «-Bfa-» 02:38, 3 July 2012 (UTC)
I know, our moon is objectively pretty like autumn foliage. As if god put it there to for our enjoyment like he crafted the universe to appear to have depth like the Mona Lisa. AceThe Rep Grows Bigger 02:42, 3 July 2012 (UTC)
We are also the only planet with lovely red colors, like the objectively beautiful autumn foliage. If there were martians they would be jealous of our redness. --Opcn with regards to regarding my regardliness 03:45, 3 July 2012 (UTC)
To be fair, we are the only planet with a "unique" moon, now that the liberal atheists banished Pluto because it was an underdog. Profmusic (talk) 04:10, 3 July 2012 (UTC)
Our Moon is unique only in being singular, and that is if you use the strict definition of a planet. If we include dwarf planets, then even this feature isn't unique to Earth as Eris also has a singular moon (Dysnomia). Most moons are "unique" although some types are very similar to each other (Phobos & Deimos) or of a very common type (icy moons). For our moon, it isn't the largest (that would be Ganymede), or even the largest in ratio to its parent body (that would be Charon). Like the majority of Moons, it is geologically inactive, so it is common there (unlike Io), and certainly less unique than Titan, who has the honor of being the only moon with both a thick atmosphere and stable liquid bodies on its surface. Our Moon is special only in the fact it orbits the Earth and thus the only other world anyone can see without the aid of equipment; it is our Moon and has influenced our cultures and religions, so I suppose in that way it is unique. Such facts of history doesn't suggest it is in any way designed though.--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 06:33, 3 July 2012 (UTC)
The Moon is also very large in comparison to the Earth; IIRC only Pluto-Charon is larger. CS Miller (talk) 09:26, 3 July 2012 (UTC)
Interesting Andy mentions O'Reilly ("The average age of our visitors is probably about 25 years old, while the average age of viewers of the O'Reilly Factor is about 70 years old." lol!) since he's stealing O'Reilly's act. --Night Jaguar (talk) 06:47, 3 July 2012 (UTC)
And the average age of the sysops is about 50. Redchuck.gif ГенгисIs the Pope a Catholic?Moderator 07:31, 4 July 2012 (UTC)
That's their average IQ, too. This cannot be conincidence - CP sysops must have been designed! rpeh •TCE 07:41, 4 July 2012 (UTC)
That designer must be really ashamed of His work. --Night Jaguar (talk) 09:03, 4 July 2012 (UTC)
One other point that I have seen Andy make about the god-given uniqueness of our Moon is the fact that it is exactly the right size and distance to just obscure the Sun's disc in an eclipse. Of course he conveniently overlooks annular eclipses where it does not fully obscure the disc. Redchuck.gif ГенгисIs the Pope a Catholic?Moderator 08:04, 3 July 2012 (UTC)
There's a full essay on that. Also, I love how he says "The average age of our audience is probably 25". Use on the word "probably" indicates to me that A) he has no idea, and B) he has pulled it out of his arse. Just like everything else. --Veni Vidi.png Feci.png 11:01, 3 July 2012 (UTC)
What's funny, is in his lack of knowledge, he misses some very critical reasons our moon is unique that matter to life like no other moon: Tides and orbital stability. While life doesn't need tides to exist, it can be argued that life needed tides to become "us" (of course that would mean you believe in evo). And without the moon holding us steady, we'd not have a consistent pattern of seasons, arguably a reason high life forms are able to evolve. So instead of a perfectly "legit" (as it were) "What are the odds that you could have a moon large enough to ..." which might actually make someone think about god the way the "we are in the perfect zone for life" argument does - all he has is "it's pretty"? Sad. Green mowse.pngGodotFire! Fire! Fire! (please send spare firefighters) 14:04, 3 July 2012 (UTC)
The tide goes in, the tide goes out, you can't explain that! -- Seth Peck (talk) 14:15, 3 July 2012 (UTC)
Personally I think the collection of natural near-Earth objects are significantly more interesting than the moon, given that one of these could potentially collide with the planet some time in the next billion years these objects enter the atmosphere about once a year, and a hazardous one (ELE big) could potentially collide with the planet within 100 MY. -- Seth Peck (talk) 14:18, 3 July 2012 (UTC)

Kenny pretends to be interested in "manly" things. This is some of my favorite shit that Ken does to make himself seem like an actual man. Which, of course, he's not. Hiphopopotamus (talk) 05:10, 4 July 2012 (UTC)

Although to be fair, that Rossi-Stoner battle was epic. Ajkgordon (talk) 08:32, 4 July 2012 (UTC)
I think Ken's chum ShlockofGoat is a motor-cycle nut, so Ken is probably just trying to ingratiate himself. Redchuck.gif ГенгисIs the Pope a Catholic?Moderator 09:52, 4 July 2012 (UTC)

Ken probably dreams of going for a ride with Shock into battle against the evil atheist evolutionists. Unfortunately he cannot ride on a bike with another man, what with the uncontrolable erection he gets whenever his crotch gets close to another mans ass.A hint for you Ken, have sex a few times, and it will be easier to control the unwelcomed erections. Or keep living in your basement eating shitty food and never sleeping properly and exercising. The high blood pressure, heart disease, and diabetes will no doubt eliminate all erections from your life soon enough. --Opcn with regards to regarding my regardliness 11:46, 4 July 2012 (UTC)

Well, there's nothing wrong with that since YMCA is a "legitimate tribute to the Young Men's Christian Association." Don't even pretend it's not super-duper conservative.

Radio interview[edit]

So, did anybody even listen to the interview featuring a Conservapedian? --Benod (talk) 13:42, 4 July 2012 (UTC)

I find it quite funny that Andy's been reduced to giving interviews on "Voice of Russia" (interview here.) Also, I see Andy is touting himself as a "Constitutional lawyer" - since when? Since he screwed up two cases with his "heartfelt letter?" --PsyGremlin話しなさい 13:54, 4 July 2012 (UTC)

They're finally honest enough to come right out and say it[edit]

Over at CNAV, which has been far more interesting than Conservapedia as of late, the latest post has come right out an stated what no doubt most of the fine folks of the Tea Party set believe: Obama is simply downright evil. We rather knew they believed this and never saw politics as disagreements over what policies will work for America, but some great spiritual battle between the powers of righteousness and those of the malevolent depraved. Just refreshing when they admit how extreme they're views are and how they tie religion to everything. --BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 21:33, 2 July 2012 (UTC)

The way TerryH has described him, he thinks he's the Antichrist.[7]--"Shut up, Brx." 21:43, 2 July 2012 (UTC)
I love the way he adds his own drivel from other blogs in a way that looks like he's referencing an independent source. -- Ellipsoidal (talk) 21:57, 2 July 2012 (UTC)
That's not Terry, it's Pastor Bickel, the guy so loopy he makes Terry look reasonable. I'm pretty sure he actually does think Obama's the Antichrist, or possibly worse. The guy's got a rather...special view of the world. Not that Terry won't back him up all the way of course. --Kels (talk) 04:30, 3 July 2012 (UTC)
No, look at the link I posted. The comment is by Terry--"Shut up, Brx." 05:31, 3 July 2012 (UTC)
(ec) It says something that of the 4 regular posters to Terry's blog, Terry's the sanest. --PsyGremlin말하십시오 05:35, 3 July 2012 (UTC)
It's not really even other blogs - all the links are to Bickel's own blog. In other words, he's backing up what he says using other things he says. Psy's right - Terry may be a frothing maniac, but he's the sanest one of the four regular posters. Bickel is a candidate for a rubber-walled room. rpeh •TCE 05:43, 3 July 2012 (UTC)
That's what I meant by "his own drivel". Both referenced articles (I think there were only two) were by Bickel, but it looked like they were hosted on two separate blog sites to me. It seemed like he was pulling a Ken rather incompetently, generating content on one site so he could use it as a reference on another. He just didn't have the sense to stay anonymous or use a pseudonym. He might not have actually intended the links to look like cites, but it'd almost be worse if he's that oblivious on top of being that paranoid. -- Ellipsoidal (talk) 11:35, 3 July 2012 (UTC)
Sorry, yes. I slightly misread your original comment. rpeh •TCE 11:46, 3 July 2012 (UTC)
Actually, Terry's hinted at the Obama-is-the-AntiChrist connection so blatantly that I asked him to just come out and confirm or deny it. His response was that he seriously, seriously considered it for a while, but didn't see enough signs to believe it in the end. A few weeks later I made a passing comment there that some of the CNaV editors had though Obama might be the AntiChrist, and RoseAnn jumped all over me saying that I was making crap up about them, so I posted Terry's quote and never heard a peep out of her in reply. Apparently, the "reasonable middle ground" for her, Bickel and Terry is to just declare Obama evil and leave it at that. I'm waiting for their next serialized web-novel to be based on this. --DinsdaleP (talk) 15:21, 3 July 2012 (UTC)
The problem with them believing Obama is the anti-Christ is that, among Christians who believe in that type of thing, the majority belief is that they will be taken into heaven before the anti-Christ rises to power -- aka the "pre-tribulation rapture". (I have no idea if Terry et al are in that camp, though. That's the belief of the loonies as Rapture Ready.) Thus, if Obama was the anti-Christ, they would be either:
  1. Wrong about the pre-tribulation rapture.
  2. Wrong about the rapture in general.
  3. Not among those raptured.
None of which are idea they'd like. I've seen it argued that Obama is to the anti-Christ what John the Baptist was to Christ, though, which allows him to be in the service of evil, but not the ultimate evil. MDB (talk) 16:00, 3 July 2012 (UTC)

Purpura revisits birtherland[edit]

Hardly surprising. The man whose name is a form of skin disease and whose behaviour is more embarrassing than one is going for it again, and for all the usual reasons. I imagine we'll be reading all about it on CNAV before long. rpeh •TCE 08:51, 3 July 2012 (UTC)

Seriously, lawyers must be rubbing their hands when they see teabaggers approaching. And of course, they never lose because their case is utter bullshit, it's always the learned judge who's at fault. Take the Florida case for example: "The attorney challenging Obama’s eligibility, however, told WND the judge’s ruling is “intellectually dishonest” and so poorly written it makes an appeal “relatively easy.”" --PsyGremlinSnakk! 09:03, 3 July 2012 (UTC)
It reminds me of that joke where two mothers are watching a parade. One turns to the other and says "Look! My little boy is the only one marching in step!" Well over 100 court cases have seen their arguments dismissed and yet they sigh and wonder how so many judges could be so wrong. It's pathetic really. rpeh •TCE 09:07, 3 July 2012 (UTC)
They remind me of Bullwinkle J. Moose. Not that they're funny, but that it's like the sketches where Bullwinkle wore magician's garb and tried to pull a rabbit out of my hat. For instance...
"Hey, Ba-racky, watch my pull the end of your presidency out of my arse!"
"But that trick never works!"
"This time for sure!" (Bullwinkle pulls a very angry judge out of his hat.) "Wrong venue!"

"Today is a great day to read how many references our Declaration of Independence makes to our Creator." So I looked at the Full text in their article and found one "God" (as part of the phrase "Nature's God") and one "Creator". Have I missed something? Also note the cheery exchange on the talk page, where Andy thanks JoaquinMartinez for wishing him a Happy 4th of July Cantabrigian (talk) 14:54, 4 July 2012 (UTC)
In contrast, Reagan's speech has five uses of "4th of July" (or similar, not counting the title). Cantabrigian (talk) 15:01, 4 July 2012 (UTC)
It's time for a Conservative Version of the Writings of Reagan to fix those annoying secular Fourth of July references. Whoover (talk) 16:03, 4 July 2012 (UTC)
"Independence Day" celebrates our God-given freedom. "Fourth of July" celebrates Julius Caesar, a pagan. Are you dense? Whoover (talk) 16:11, 4 July 2012 (UTC)
Reminds me of the "Christian in a secularized version of Christ."-weirdness. I'm assuming that Andy is celebrating 4th of July with a bottle. Vulpius (talk) 17:12, 4 July 2012 (UTC)
I'm seriously starting to think that he doesn't know what secularism actually is. Yes, treat it as a given that most religious conservatives bitching about the "religion of secularism" don't know what they're talking about, but I'm really starting to think that Andy thinks secularism simply means "politically correct". But! What he's describing here STILL isn't political correctness, it's that, I'm pretty sure, in his heart of hearts, Andy Schlafly doesn't like multiple words for the same things. Or something. This is so frigging crazy that I can't even guess at what he's trying to communicate. Someone should WIGO it; it's pure madness. --YossarianSpeak, Memory 18:54, 4 July 2012 (UTC)
Andy strikes me as someone who would do VERY well with Newspeak. --Revolverman (talk) 19:00, 4 July 2012 (UTC)
The only thing stopping him from creating his own language, Conservish, is his short attention span. This was hilarious though.img --Night Jaguar (talk) 19:48, 4 July 2012 (UTC)
For the full impact of Andy's hypocrisy, here's a version of the WIGO citing the entry in question (yes, I got EC'd by eight minutes - boo hoo =P)
Joaquín Martínez: "Happy 4th of July!"
Andy: "Those with an anti-Christian and anti-American agenda, such as liberals, homosexuals, atheists, evolutionists and leftists, have attempted to remove the Christian origins of our language by replacing common phrases such as 'Independence Day' with secularized versions such as '4th of July'! Errr... I mean... thanks, JM!"
Stay classy, Andy. You're just lucky that JM either doesn't care or see/understand what you just did. --Sid (talk) 20:10, 4 July 2012 (UTC)

"With child" is conservative, yet "pregnant" is liberal? Interestingly "child" comes from heathen, godless old Germanic, whereas 'pregnant' comes from christian Latin (from O.Fr. preignant, from earlier priembre, from L. premere). VOXHUMANA 02:32, 5 July 2012 (UTC)
One of my favourite parts of the secularised language table is that some of the words get repeated, but on opposite sides. I assume some of that is parody, but I wouldn't put it past Andy. --YossarianSpeak, Memory 06:48, 5 July 2012 (UTC)
I'd have to agree that Andy doesn't really know what secularizing means. I think what he's really complaianing about here is "dumbing down". Andy must think that the five syllable IN-DE-PEN-DENCE-DAY is superior to the four syllable FOURTH-OF-JU-LY.--Spud (talk) 10:05, 5 July 2012 (UTC)
I don't know if you guys are being deliberately obtuse but I get what Andy's tying to say but of course he has to put it in the liquidiser with all his other pet hates and blend it with a big dollop of ignorance. He has harped on about Easter in the past and insists it should be Resurrection Sunday; Easter, of course, comes from the olde English/Germanic 'Ēostre' or 'Ostara' which was a festival for the pagan goddess of the dawn that was appropriated by the early church, other European languages use a derivative of Pascha from the Jewish Passover. Andy feels that these names don't emphasise the religious nature of the festival despite them being used for 1500 years or more. Similarly, 4th of July only refers to a calendar date and not the significance of the great US of A whipping their imperial atheistic British overlords' arses to gain independence. The fact that Independence Day is not a religious festival doesn't matter to Andy; if it isn't referred to in the way that Andy considers it should be, then it's "secular" (as it darned well should be).

I wonder if he realizes that attributing the victory of revolutionaries to an omnipotent power seriously harms their own macheesmo factor.
