Spinelessville. Population: None Andy.[edit]

I see Andy's burst of enthusiasm for keeping spam off the front page was short lived. Kendoll, far from taking the hint, just carried on as normal posting his usual frantic masturbation over irrelevant statistics from Quantcast. Why nip the problem in the bud when you can spend forever cleaning up after the dribbling imbecileimg. That makes sense, right? --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 19:34, 9 February 2013 (UTC)

Seems like you're absolutely right. Like I said, I don't get it. An openly hate-filled cultist is using Andy as a doormat and he does little about it but keep his head down and await the next insult. It's sort of pathetic that so much of his "trimming" consists of removing Ken's vomitus. Just weird. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 20:01, 9 February 2013 (UTC)
Stepping back for a second, is it even possible that Andy's not trolling? We keep asking, "how can he have passed the bar and gotten a Princeton engineering degree and be so stupid?" He can't be. The "it's not a bad relay; it's rationing," and "E = mc1.999" and all the other insane crap he digs his heels in to defend. The more obviously wrong a thesis is the more he delights in supporting it. What better way to troll than deputize the most raving morons you can find? What if we're the stupid ones? Whoover (talk) 20:38, 9 February 2013 (UTC)
Douglas Adams (the real one) pointed out (in Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency) that an old joke perfectly explains this situation.
Person #1 Uncle Henry thinks he's a chicken.
Person #2 Well why don't you take him to the doctor?
Person #1 We would, only we need the eggs.
The joke, such as it is, is that either Uncle Henry is a human producing eggs, to the net benefit of the family, or (and Adams ignores this interpretation) that he's actually a chicken and that it's Person #1 who's ill. Sticking with interpretation 1, though, gives us this:
Andy: Congratulations! You're a real asset to this site who deserves every right going!
Everyone else: He's a dribbling idiot. You need to remove his rights immediately.
Andy: I would... but his dribblings get loads of links from people coming to laugh at us and I'm unable to distinguish this from people coming to learn from my Conservative Insights.
In other words, even though everyone realises that Ken is a dribbling idiot, he's more useful to Andy as an idiot dribbling out of the tent than one dribbling into it. rpeh •TCE 20:48, 9 February 2013 (UTC)
EC -- Rob said something not entirely stupid about this a while back; Robbie, correct me if I'm wrong, but the argument went something like this: it's not about Andy believing these things (relativity, earthquakes, etc), its about Andy wanting a level intellectual playing field for his faith-based ideas. He wants the ideas that rationalists accept as dogmatic (in his eyes) like an old earth or evolution to be subject to the same kind of scrutiny that a young earth or creationism are subject to in the academy/on places like Wikipedia, etc. He's digging his heels in because he really believes that he's standing up for free inquiry. So maybe he gives Ken a bit of leeway because he sees that as championing a kind of intellectual freedom in which all ideas are equal.

I am always amused when ken insults catholic editors as being liberal and not real Christians while Andy, a (admittedly shit) catholic looks on with his thumbs up his arse AMassiveGay (talk) 21:09, 9 February 2013 (UTC)
In the mean time, other shit Catholic JPratt hasn't bothered to turn up at CP for over a week now. He'll disappear, then Karajou, and it'll just be Andy and Ken is sweet wingnut bliss together. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 21:50, 9 February 2013 (UTC)
Hey, Don't forget the Generalissimo of Aynistan linkwhoring. --Revolverman (talk) 21:55, 9 February 2013 (UTC)
Nah, Jpatt will turn up when he's thought of something else racist to say about the Pres. Karajou will never leave - it's the only place he has any authority in his sad life Ed will be back next time he's butt-hurt at WP. PsyGremlinTala! 22:01, 9 February 2013 (UTC)
Well, with this epic snowstorm that's supposedly happening in Hurlbuttown isn't everyone going to see Terry's generator and declare him king now? I don't see how he'll have much time to spam CP what with his colonelcy in the Galt's Gulch colonial militia to see to. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 22:05, 9 February 2013 (UTC)
I guess we need to keep an eye on the news. --Revolverman (talk) 22:08, 9 February 2013 (UTC)
@Polar Bear, even Wikipedia admits YEC is much more mainstream than most people realize. But to research the subject, discuss or argue, given CP's current level of development as a serious internet project, would tend to cause people to gravitate to the other camp. Burnum (talk) 01:16, 10 February 2013 (UTC)
It's mainstream maybe in terms of raw numbers, but there's nothing in those about class and education. You don't see a lot of people with multiple degrees who buy into it. The people Andy was frustrated with weren't JPatt and Ken; they were people of his educational and class background, and the institutions associated with them -- the people and places who are gatekeepers to credibility. That's who he's pissed at. Polar Bear In the Jungle Peter Tosh > Bob Marley 01:26, 10 February 2013 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── That language in WP probably outrages Andy:

Since 1982, between 40% and 50% of adults in the United States say they hold the creationist view that "God created humans in their present form at one time within the last 10,000 years" when Gallup asked for their views on the origin and development of human beings.[8] As of 2012, the percentage of believers decreases as the level of education increases

and views CP as the alternative to "liberal elitism". Too bad, Andy doesn't even have the uneducated rednecks he wants to give voice to. Burnum (talk) 01:52, 10 February 2013 (UTC)

Trimming[edit]

It has now gotten to the point where Andy is 'trimming' nearly twice a day.img Grow a fucking spine already. What, are you afraid of Ken or something. Jesus, it is fucking pitiful. Acei9 00:52, 10 February 2013 (UTC)

I wonder if Andy will ever notice Ken can spam faster then he can trim. --Revolverman (talk) 00:54, 10 February 2013 (UTC)
Uh, yes. Hence him removing multiple posts each time. But yes, Ken is a machine. A pathetic substandard intelligence frantically fighting through the crippling pain of his cognitive dissonance to fight for a belief system he instinctively knows is indefensible. I find it incredibly sad that the most fervent creationists also exude a kind of intense negative energy that at least to me indicates tremendous self loathing and shame. Any cretin would hate being Ken or Terry Hurlbut. These sad creatures must hate themselves more than they imagine those awful atheists hate their godman. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 01:15, 10 February 2013 (UTC)
Honestly I suspect their narcissism and self importance makes any conscious self hate impossible, they simply have Dalek-esque hatred of anything that does not conform to their increasingly insane dogma. Remember, the "true believers" at CP are all individuals who flocked there to gain some "status" in what they saw to be a massively important part of the conservative movement, and thus live out their dreams of leading the "great conservative revolution" in seizing control of society and government. They all honestly believe that they are "winning" and that they will soon have bloody vengeance upon all of us profligates. Were it mere self hatred keeping them going they would have folded years ago. Personally I think its a good think they decided to expend their hateful insanity online rather than taking it out on people IRL Judge HoldenThe Judge Smiles 03:28, 10 February 2013 (UTC)

Kendoll's blog[edit]

You all know about this, right? https://www.teapartycommunity.com/pages/1436/ It's great for a laugh, almost as good as the massacre he has enacted on CP's main page. And mainspace. ħumanUser talk:Human 00:44, 9 February 2013 (UTC)

Good find. Acei9 00:45, 9 February 2013 (UTC)
oh goddess, as if I needed more proof that the TPC is a clusterfuck of epic proportions... lolo, I see men are the same everywhere. 2 socks accounts - 25 male, generic picture, anti-Obama; pro0gun posts = 0 friend requests. 25 female, generic cute picture, anti-Obama; pro0gun posts = 34 friend requests. --PsyGremlinSprich! 01:02, 9 February 2013 (UTC)

You mean this? Also, Sam is eagletastic. Can't get more conservative than that. 184.61.193.172 (talk) 08:06, 9 February 2013 (UTC)
Yeah, but that's on Facebook, which is liberal so therefore doesn't count. --Kels (talk) 16:11, 9 February 2013 (UTC)
I just went to that site for the very first time, and I'm instantly greeted by a huge warning sign that tells me I have to solve a CAPTCHA just to look at it (for now - it grants me "temporary access") because "Your IP address based on the country, region or network has been flagged by the website owner." So... fuck Germany and one of its largest ISPs? *closes tab* --Sid (talk) 11:21, 9 February 2013 (UTC)
Same for me - seems to be fuck-non-U.S. --larron (talk) 11:27, 9 February 2013 (UTC)
I'm fine from the UK but I registered ealry doors. Then they clocked that a large number of registrations were from parodists and tried to lock down access somewhat. Do you want my account, I don't know if I can be arsed with it? Oldusgitus (talk) 11:42, 9 February 2013 (UTC)
I figure I could just solve the CAPTCHA to look at stuff, but ehhhhhh, just to look at yet more of Ken's ramblings? ;) Thanks for the offer, though! --Sid (talk) 11:52, 9 February 2013 (UTC)

*sigh* Comes to something when my fake account on The Chimps Tea Party site has more friends than my real account on Facebook. Ah well…--Stunteddwarf Jabba de Chops 19:31, 9 February 2013 (UTC)

It's worth the CAPCHA for the comments. They're mostly of the form, "Conservapedia -- cool! Wait, what? Flying kitty? Rewriting the Bible? Must be parodists. Can't be; I read it's Phyllis Schlafly. Look! Joseph Farrah calls them 'stupid' and 'nothing conservative.'"
We tend to forget that the typical conservative views this crapfest pretty much like we do. Whoover (talk) 20:24, 9 February 2013 (UTC)
Oh yes. Ken lives in his own strange little world, that, amusingly or disgustingly, Andrew Schlafly Esq. enables. Bad Andrew. ħumanUser talk:Human 03:08, 10 February 2013 (UTC)

Oh that's a classic - he has the whole Professor/Student "are you a Christian?" "the student was Einstein thing on there. When he gets schooled on the fact that Einstein was Jewish, the responses are classic:
Poster: "This falls apart - Einstein was Jewish"
Brad: "don't see where it falls apart he asked about God and Satin both of which are in the Jewish faith"
Poster: "Actually no, Jews don't believe in Satan."
Brad: "ok read over that."

Again with the Hydroplate theory??[edit]

Flingbottom is touting his hydroplate theory again. Not only is it the reason there's ice on Mercury, but now it created asteroids too. --PsyGremlinKhuluma! 21:40, 9 February 2013 (UTC)

Its fun to see that theory stretch and stretch. I wonder how the water got fucking Lightyears away from earth then. --Revolverman (talk) 21:52, 9 February 2013 (UTC)
The speed of water was much faster back then, it could easily have reached escape velocity and travelled to the further reaches of the universe. SophieWilder 22:19, 9 February 2013 (UTC)
Don't get the universe was smaller then too. It only expanded afterwards, and the time dilation when this happened explains the starlight problem. Sheesh, must I draw pictures for you evilutionist baby-eaters? --PsyGremlinRunāt! 22:23, 9 February 2013 (UTC)
But there's no time dilation, is there? Because relativity is bollocks? -جئت ورأيت أنا القرف gross, isn't it? 22:36, 9 February 2013 (UTC)
... God turned on the Time dilation mod on the universe for the Global Flood. --Revolverman (talk) 22:41, 9 February 2013 (UTC)
Terry is also cranking up the end-times rhetoric, hoping that we're not here to pester him one morning. He twice uses the phrase "if the Lord tarries that long," as in The landing will happen in 2018. Then (if the Lord tarries that long), for the first time, we will find out exactly what an asteroid is made of.
It really comes from the same impulse as "God is Great," shouted as you're blowing yourself up. Whoover (talk) 23:13, 9 February 2013 (UTC)
His choice of words sums up just what kinda guy he is. He is honestly disappointed that God had delayed in throwing the 6 billion or so people who exist in a manner Hurly dislikes or believe concepts that confuse him into Satan's personal rape/torture dungeon, and wants God to hurry the fuck up and split the seals already so Tosser can watch the untermench burn and beg from the comfort of his generator throne. Judge HoldenThe Judge Smiles 03:40, 10 February 2013 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── I was going to post something about this when I first saw it but it's so full of wrong it's difficult to know where to begin. From little things like GPS satellites flying in LEOs (they don't, they use MEOs, further away from Earth than the likely closest approach of the asteroid) to the big stuff like scientists having no idea how asteroids leave the asteroid belt (there's a dirty great planet nearby that perturbs orbits). Add in the end of days crap, implied criticism of his own god and you've got a classic Chucky post. rpeh •TCE 07:32, 10 February 2013 (UTC)


I wonder what he makes of extra-solar asteroids? [1] Or is that just the lieberal astronomers trying to take us from Yehowah's glory? CS Miller (talk) 17:08, 10 February 2013 (UTC)

Like arguing with a parrot[edit]

No, this is actually not a section about Ken.

Andy: "Liberals promote energy rationing, and the lights went out at the Superbowl!"img
Wschact: "Here is why it's really unlikely that this was a problem caused by regulation."img
Andy: "Energy rationing!"img
Greg: "Actually, it had nothing to do with energy rationing."img
Andy: "Liberals limit the size and availability of generators!"img
Greg: "There were generators, they did kick in immediately, but the huge-ass lights just need time to power up."img
Official statement: "Backup generators kicked in immediately as designed."
Andy: "Energy-rationed... lights? And... the generators couldn't kick in quickly because liberals limit the size and availability of generators!"img
Greg: *exasperated sigh*img

I'm just waiting for Andy to wipe the entire section and drag people back to the talk page to tell them (1) that liberal energy-rationing caused this and (2) that liberals hate backup generators. But seriously... energy-rationed... lights? --Sid (talk) 11:51, 9 February 2013 (UTC)

Ha, good summary. Looks like the generators in Andy's head failed long ago. You should WIGO it. --Night Jaguar (talk) 15:49, 9 February 2013 (UTC)
Anyone else hear the distant shrieks of multiple fundie orgasms coming from a certain NJ crackpot as he reads this talk of "liberals hatin generators"? Judge HoldenThe Judge Smiles 14:11, 9 February 2013 (UTC)
Wow, I get it; "the lights go out on promoters of rationed energy at the Super Bowl". The fans sitting in the dark not only are liberals, they're activists for energy rationing. What an insight into Andy's mind. nobsSay hello to my leetle friend 15:44, 9 February 2013 (UTC)
Sid, that was classic. I miss your completely compiled reports at what used to the "Best of CP". Hi Rob, hope you are well! I was lucky this weekend, generator started on second test pull, but was not needed. ħumanUser talk:Human 03:19, 10 February 2013 (UTC)

I just wish my power company would invest in burying their damn wires instead of mutilating every tree in sight. Although, the tree mutilation was probably part of why nemo.weather.com didn't take out our power. That and the fact that a windy cold snowstorm doesn't tend to load up trees to the breaking point. ħumanUser talk:Human 02:54, 12 February 2013 (UTC)

Gov't final[edit]

Go have fun. I got 28/30. Missed 5 and 25. I chose "judicial review" for 5 because that's the correct answer. There have been various forms of "federalism" throughout history, although obviously not in the same sense as in the US, but I am unaware of any prior example of a court having the authority to decide what is the law (Marbury v. Madison). I chose "early voting" for 25 because none of the answers is correct and I reckoned Andy put that in there for a reason. That rascal! He thinks it's gerrymandering! Who the fuck knows. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 04:59, 10 February 2013 (UTC)

26/30. Amazingly, I tried to think like Andy and decided that when he said things like "early voting" those would be right. Also got 5 wrong - I would have thought Switzerland was a federation long before the US. --PsyGremlinZungumza! 05:42, 10 February 2013 (UTC)
27/30. I missed 3, because I know next to nothing about the Articles of Confederation; 16 - just dunno, and 21 because I thought all of the answers were wrong. You live and learn. rpeh •TCE 06:02, 10 February 2013 (UTC)
I missed 4. One I just plain misread. I admit I had no idea what the incorporation doctrine was. And Question 5 was just a poor question. DickTurpis (talk) 06:09, 10 February 2013 (UTC)
25/30. It's rigged. 11 could have been "all of the above" about what the media wants, but plugs the self aggrandizing ERA. nobsSay hello to my leetle friend 06:26, 10 February 2013 (UTC)
Surly Dick 5 is not as poor as 19. "The U.S. Supreme Court particularly likes to decide cases involving which parts of the U.S. Constitution?" I didn't realise that the Supreme Court liked anything, but mealy judged what came before it. But how does early voting change the discrepancy between the proportion of votes cast and the final representation? The thought process behind that intrigues me. - π 08:25, 10 February 2013 (UTC)
Oh that's a terrible question too. I just happened to guess it correctly, though. DickTurpis (talk) 14:24, 10 February 2013 (UTC)
29/30; just missed the one about voting and age. I am also intrigued about how early voting affects turnout among particular age groups. Seme Blue 08:56, 10 February 2013 (UTC)
That is easy, old people are less mobile so early voting gives them more of a chance to vote. Also helps shift workers who might not be able to get the day off, but can take the Friday before off say. Still can't see how it effects the proportion of final representation though. - π 09:05, 10 February 2013 (UTC)
It's easy - Andy doesn't like it, because liberals, therefore it must be bad. He doesn't know why it's bad, but Obama won, so it must be the fault of early voting. --PsyGremlinRunāt! 09:16, 10 February 2013 (UTC)
20/30 and I know next to nothing about the US constitution or it's executive. I am getting much better at thinking like andy, although I'm not sure that is a good thing. Oldusgitus (talk) 09:13, 10 February 2013 (UTC)
Oddly, there are some instances in which going with the Andy mentality can throw you off. The one about gerrymandering in Pennsylvania is such an example. It's actually a good and relevant question, and he actually got the answer right, even though the example he used isn't flattering for Republicans. I'm sure he'd rather use a good example of Democratic gerrymandering, but such examples are much harder to find in this cycle. DickTurpis (talk) 18:45, 10 February 2013 (UTC)
Isn't it about time we posted all the correct answers here, so hundreds of random people can score 30/30 and frustrate Andy's attempts at world domination? ħumanUser talk:Human 03:18, 12 February 2013 (UTC)

I think most of his weirdly mangled idioms he gets from internet videos. I'm almost certain he got "peddle to meddle" from ShockofGoat.

Dunno why he's into talking about violently and physically painful things happening to "evolutionists" or why "evolutionists" are always effeminate to him, as if an effeminate man (or woman?!), is somehow less of a person than he is. Effeminiate or not, I'm fairly sure any average sized man could beat the living shit out of Ken, as his behavior indicates that he rarely leaves the house and is so poorly socialized that the only people he formed strong relationships with were his parents and siblings.

Is it me, or is the word "historical" being treated like a cum rag in this whole business? Of course it's a historical event, but every semi-literate news bimbo/himbo is using it instead of "unusual" or "interesting" or "good enough for us to spin out for half a fucking hour with someone who's just spent the last five minutes reading about the history of the papacy on Wikipedia, stay tuned for a skateboarding duck.".

It's being treated like a cum rag because every history nerd on the planet, with the slightest interest in European history, spontaneously creamed their jeans when they heard the news.

Surely even Andy can't ignore thisimg? AugustO just called Andy a liar to his face. Time to get the popcorn and watch the final act. rpeh •TCE 08:18, 11 February 2013 (UTC)

I see August made the mistake of calling the University of Berlin between 1933 and 1945 a "conservative university". Herr O, it is a well known fact in CPland that the Nazis were all liberal evolutionist atheists and not conservatives at all. It's also kind of intriguing that AugustO seems to have only just found out that other people on the Internet are taking the piss out of Conservapedia.--Spud (talk) 10:08, 11 February 2013 (UTC)--Spud (talk) 10:08, 11 February 2013 (UTC)

I bet Andy misses the old days when he had loyal sycophants who would have blocked August months ago for arguing with an admin. It's interesting to watch just how far Andy is willing to go to defend his ridiculous, evidence-free assertions. You'd think he'd eventually figure out that when an opponent offers a crushing weight of evidence and all you have in response is "NUH UH!" and "WHAT ABOUT CAKE?!?!" you're probably wrong. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 10:41, 11 February 2013 (UTC)

I spent four weeks in South Africa in 2001. I saw six people get shot, one in Cape Town, one in Joburg and four in Pretoria. VOXHUMANA 21:08, 14 February 2013 (UTC)
I've spent more weeks than I can count in SA, my parents and siblings moved there in 1980/81. And I have never seen anyone shot there. In the past 6 years I have spent more than 25 weeks there, in the past 20 years, likely over a full year. It is a country in which the unwary are at risk. I am not unwary. My family do not carry nor have they, in general, ever felt the need to. My brother did for a while but he was hanging around the HA during their bogus years in Hillbrow and lived close to Tembisa. SA IS dangerous, without doubt, but it is not the hell-hole that some make out. Oldusgitus (talk) 21:34, 14 February 2013 (UTC)
I could have been very unlucky, but I saw what I saw. The first was in Cape Town, one taxi driver shot another in the taxi rank just outside that pier with all the restaurants. The second was outside a bar in Sandtown in Joburg. The third was a single incident in Pretoria, a guy opened fire on a car load of people on a main road near the centre of town. I was several hundred metres away but I could see it happening. (I checked my diary, these incidents were actually in Feb 2001, not 2000). VOXHUMANA 22:25, 14 February 2013 (UTC)
Vox, SA can be a dangerous place without doubt and my family have tended to live in nice middles class (read white) areas, barring my brother and Tembisa that is. And life can be very cheap over there, 100 Rand (about 9 UK pounds) was a quote I heard one time to end one. CIT's are very popular over there for example and all cit guards carry sub machine guns whilst delivering. But I suspect that yes, you were somewhat unlucky to be honest. Oldusgitus (talk) 07:35, 15 February 2013 (UTC)
I've lived here since 1975 and I've only seen 1 person shot - during the Inkhata march just before the 94 elections. Yes, we do have quite high level of violent crime here, but I doubt very much it is out of line with any major cities worldwide. --PsyGremlinZungumza! 21:46, 14 February 2013 (UTC)

Please help me out here. I'm Australian so I don't really understand this, since we are mostly godless sodomites and all I don't really have much contact with extremist Christians. I really can't understand how right wing Christians oppose public health care. It is literally the opposite of what Jesus taught ("give me your sick, your poor, etc"). It is in direct anathema to their professed beliefs. How do they justify it at all? Surely this contradiction has occurred to them. Surely it has. --Sasayaki (talk) 04:35, 15 February 2013 (UTC)

Lemme help you... Here we have rational people and irrational people. We also have liberals and conservatives. Christians and non-believers, educated and ignorant, vocal and quiet, generous and selfish. Now draw yourself a Venn diagram. Where the categories irrational, conservative, Christian, ignorant, vocal, and selfish overlap... that's the "extremist Christians" you're talking about. And I know you wouldn't know it from reading the news, but there's really not that many of them. But as mentioned, they are very very vocal, and the problem is that when they're yelling and waiving signs, all of the normal Christians seem to find something else to look at. --Inquisitor (talk) 04:56, 15 February 2013 (UTC)
There is nothing in Christian doctrine that requires health care be a public concern. One may well see suffering in the world and become motivated to alleviate it without being committed to the idea that taxes should be levied to do the same. I honestly don't see any contradiction here. (Note: I'm not saying that I agree with the position, but only that it doesn't puzzle me.) Phiwum (talk) 12:30, 15 February 2013 (UTC)
What always puzzles me is Andy's insistence that "only Christians build hospitals". If the True American Way is for healthcare to be a private commercial concern, what does Christian charity have to do with it? Cantabrigian (talk) 14:12, 15 February 2013 (UTC)
Because while they view it as a private concern, they don't view it as exclusively a commercial concern. This is another mistake people make when it comes to conservative Christians. Charity hospitals, charity towards hospitals, disease prevention and medical care through money and/or volunteer work is not only acceptable but technically strongly encouraged. They feel it should not be done by government through the confiscation of earned money (i.e. taxes), but choosing to donate their ducats(and/or time) willingly of their own accord. It is only when some (like Terry) who attempt to meld Christianity with Objectivism do we get this weird concept that medical care is purely a commercial, for profit concern.--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 16:42, 15 February 2013 (UTC)

2007 was a good year for car sales. So what? Those figures reflect federal, state and local income vs. spending. Because facts are the enemies of the left. Whoover (talk) 22:37, 15 February 2013 (UTC)
Just to be clear, the sum of the balance sheets of all towns and states, when added to the federal balance sheet, can be interesting to analyze. It's just that the party that controls Congress is not the first variable I'll correlate. Whoover (talk) 23:20, 15 February 2013 (UTC)
So, in 2007, the federal government increased their spending and did more things for the states, which allowed state governments to do (and spend) less. And this, according to Republicans, is a good thing? "Yay, the federal government is doing more so the states don't have to do anything!" Carlaugust (talk) 00:11, 16 February 2013 (UTC)
I was looking at that and spreadsheeted it to get a percent spending increase each year, since spending is about the only thing Congress or the President can control to any real extent (revenue slightly, if they cut or raise taxes, but since the chart doesn't differentiate between lost revenue from tax cuts (good, presumably) or tanking economy (bad), it's not a relevant stat). Two of the lowest years were when Clinton had a fully Democratic Congress. Not surprisingly, the higher rates tended to occur during recessions. The only year spending actually decreased was under Obama and a fully Democratic Congress, but that admittedly did follow the biggest increase listed. I really like how they try to make it all about Congress (even though it's often divided), but sum up growth based on Presidential terms. Nice one. DickTurpis (talk) 04:37, 16 February 2013 (UTC)
They are talking about receipts over outlays, meaning federal tax receipts collected in 2007 were $247 billion more than federal outlays (spending went from $4.7b to 4.9b, while tax receipts went from $4.7b to 5.1 billion). That chart would show that spending & revenue were "balanced" in 2006 at $4.7b. While this is an argument that tax cuts generate faster revenue growth, it also boasts the distinctly anti-conservative argument that Republicans are responsible for taxing the American people too much. People weren't getting back from the government as much as they put in. nobsWould you like anchovies on your sub-prime mortgage? 01:01, 17 February 2013 (UTC)

It's because at some point, Andy predicted that Castro was dead. Naturally, he's alive to this day. Unwilling to admit that he was wrong, Andy began to construct an elaborate conspiracy where the liberal media is either too stupid or too ashamed to call out Cuba for not admitting that Castro has died. He's continued this with Chavez because it reinforces the idea that denying a leader's death is a thing, helping him to save face (or at least so he can keep lying to himself).--"Shut up, Brx." 18:33, 15 February 2013 (UTC)

But I honestly can't think of any more crazy boxes he can check off and remain a functional member of society. He's pretty much hovering around Alex Jones level now.

Andy has already likened credulity regarding Chavez being alive and credulity regarding relativity. In his mind it all wraps up in a nice neat little package: skeptical open minded conservatives opposed to brainwashed liberal sheeple who believe every lie from the media and academia. What really shocked me was that a couple of days ago he said that most people believe that Chavez is dead. This is truly stretching it too far.

And if there was nothing better? As I recall, the NJ constitution's silence was pretty damn clear on the point. I am just prepared to give Andy a pass on this because I find myself in similar situations on an almost daily basis. I am forever being asked by clients to apply for bail/discharge without conviction/evidence to be excluded etc etc in situations where there is no chance of it happening. You still have to do it, even though everyone in the courtroom knows that you are doing it under protest. If you begin your submissions with "I am instructed [to apply for bail or whatever]" you sometimes get a more sympathetic ear from the grumpy judge, but not always. Maybe Andy was out of his depth, but frankly if your case is a loser, its a loser no matter what you argue. Besides, I'm sure his clients got their 2 minutes on the 6 O'Clock news that night, and that is all they wanted. DamoHi 22:16, 16 February 2013 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── Isn't an advocate supposed to have a good faith belief in the case they're arguing, unless they're acting for the defence in a criminal trial? I always thought it was a breach of ethics to take a case in front of a judge that you thought had no chance of succeeding. Misleading your clients and all that. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 22:47, 16 February 2013 (UTC)

Speaking only from an NZ perspective, your first duty is as an officer of the court. The key points of this are: You may not advance any factual position that you know to be false (and knowledge here is the key word, reasonable suspicion or even wilful blindness does not count) and you must inform the court of all cases or legislation that bear upon the case even if they go against your position and there is a rule against using the legal process for an improper purpose (which tends to be narrowly defined). In this case I would say that it is unlikely any of these duties have been breached. If a client wants to advance an untenable case, the lawyer must do so, provided he has informed the client of the risk. In this case, that would probably involve telling the client that the chances of success were minimal and I have no reason to doubt Andy did this. Whatever else, there is certainly no requirement for the lawyer to have a "good faith belief" in the case. DamoHi 23:07, 16 February 2013 (UTC)
Yeah, lawyers sometimes are forced to argue weak cases. Hazard of the profession. So what? I'm not laughing at all of them, I'm laughing at Andy. And he didn't seem to be arguing something he didn't believe in. He honestly seemed to think Washington's letter overrode everything argued at the convention. Justices Rivera-Soto and Hoens dissented with the majority opinion and their dissent had nothing to do with Washington's letter. That suggest to me there was a stronger case to be made.
I've seen admirable defenses of weak positions. This wasn't one of those. It was utterly ridiculous and the fact that the judges were laughing and facepalming seems to suggest they agreed. Again, this speaks badly about Andy, not all lawyers. --Night Jaguar (talk) 02:04, 17 February 2013 (UTC)
I'm shocked he didn't get censored for how often he talked about shit COMPLETELY unrelated to the issues at hand. Those judges have serious patience. --Revolverman (talk) 08:41, 17 February 2013 (UTC)
Damo, I take your point but the fact that Andy crowed about his involvement all over CP's front page doesn't suggest he wasn't confident. The campaign had also won in a lower court, which suggests it wasn't as one-sided as you suggest. You just have to watch the videos to realise that Andy was completely out of his depth. rpeh •TCE 09:06, 17 February 2013 (UTC)
I've seen the videos a couple of times, and it was a bit cringe-worthy, but not as bad as you all think. He got beaten up because his case was weak. The argument around Washington's letter might have been the only thing that was worth a damn. I'm sure in his heart of hearts he felt a bit silly, but whatever. The two judges dissented, by the way, on a point that Andy did address, which was whether the court should make this decision now, or wait until the petition has enough signatures and a decision is needed. He did address that point, and it is what I understand the dissent was about. --DamoHi 09:29, 17 February 2013 (UTC)
My one last defence of a fellow lawyer here, is to point out that although most of the oral submissions were focussed on the Washington letter and the discussions that took place at ratifying conventions, we don't know what the substance of the written submissions were. The only clue that we have is where Justice Rabner says "Mr. Schlafly, you've devoted your argument to the constitutional issues, and yet that's not where you start in your papers. Your argument as I understand it is, we shouldn't even discuss them. We shouldn't consider them in resolving this matter - Secretary of State had no right to go down that road. Do you want to argue the restraint point?". I imagine that this point would have taken up the majority of the written sub's and was in fact what the two dissenters went for. Always when you make oral submissions on a point of law you talk about what the judge wants to, and he will generally want to talk about things that he doesn't understand or believe from the written submissions. Clearly they zoned in on the weak part of Andy's case and gave him a hard time about it, but they were remarkably silent on the other part of the arguments. DamoHi 23:42, 17 February 2013 (UTC)

A counter offer with Macheeeeeesemo[edit]

Ken, I counter challenge you to a boxing match. We can meet in the ring under full Boxing USA rules, which can be perused for free right here. A few fair warnings, #1, I'm classified as a Super heavyweight, weighing in at around 235-240lbs fighting wait. #2, I have a background in boxing, having been fighting for about 5 years or so. #3, I'm in decent shape and I believe I'm much younger than you (I'm in my late 20's). If you want to select a friend to take your place, I could accept that, so long as he's available for a full weigh in (call your buddy Shock, he loves to talk about how he'd kick someone's ass. My offer is officially on the table, so show us how you're just slopping over with machismo and lets make this happen.... We can even make it a charity bout: we each put up a small amount, charge a decent admission to the fight and the winner gets to donate all profits to any charity he chooses (mine would most likely go to Planned Parenthood or the NAACP).

Ken, take Chuck up on his offer. You bleet so much about "exercise science" that you're surely in good enough shape to go a few rounds with an effeminate evolutionist, right? Oh, you're not so sure you can defend the violent and hateful statements you've made against people you don't know? How would you react if someone constantly gloated only vaguely metaphorically about you meeting even metaphorically physically painful and violent ends? I would beat the shit out of someone who had the courage to persistently insult me to my face like you do. What would you do to defend your obviously shaky and superficial faith? You are the worst kind of coward to retend you're anonymous with these ridiculously transparent personae and gleefully taunt people over things that have nothing to do with the substance of the discussions you've avoided like the plague for years. Anyone here could thrash you in a written debate, but why you think anyone would want to debate a subject with a stranger like Schlockofgod who's openly and notoriously shown his inability to conduct himself according to the most basic rules of civil discourse is a true mystery. Grow a pair and debate someone yourself, Ken. This farce that they have to "bring more to the table" to interest you is the dumbest bluster an anonymous internet troll could spout. Of course no prominent evolutionary scientist or anti-creationist will waste time looking at your drivel, much less talking to someone who can't even admit he's just one person and exults in this absurd sense of "mystery" you think you're cultivating. And you know it or you wouldn't have the courage to stick your head out of your intellectual bunny hole to issue these weak "challenges" in blog posts and comments riddled with incoherent, rambling, and irrelevant bullshit.

Larron got it right. Andy knows what God is thinking because, in his mind, he thinks like God. If Andy thinks something is funny then it is a case of God's sense of humor. If something makes Andy angry (liberals) then God is angry too. If Andy is too busy to catch everything then God must be too. On the other hand Andy's right. The God of the old testament is hardly omniscient or all knowing and behaves very much like a human. Mortals and lesser deities like Satan hide things from him and successfully reason with him all the time, even talking him down from murderous rampages or goading him into ruining the life of his most devoted follower. --Marlow (talk) 23:28, 18 February 2013 (UTC)

Andy would be an awful atheist. At his heart he is a narcissist. If he didn't have God at the core of his ideology, and was an atheist, he'd be fueled some kind of horrible pseudoscepticism in which he knew exactly what "science" said about everything. His direct line to God would become a direct line to what he would proclaim to be the scientific consensus. He'd still say "deny this and lose all credibility." Admittedly this would be better than his current state and we wouldn't be moaning about him here, but he'd still be a prick. He'd just be more like his brother Roger - the one who isn't gay. --Marlow (talk) 04:48, 19 February 2013 (UTC)

Bizzaro Andy (i.e, mirror universe Andy) is not only an atheist, but a hard-line communist. He writes articles about Trotskyist deceit, how Orwell was a secret communist and that Obama died in 2009, but has been replaced by a body double. --Night Jaguar (talk) 08:58, 19 February 2013 (UTC)
Almost, but mirror universe Andy actually thinks Dubya was the one who died (in 2003--his plane crashed landing on the aircraft carrier, but was covered up so as not to embolden the terrorists.) Then, because nobody willingly gives up power, the GOP--with agreement from the Democratic party--let the body double run again in 2004. It backfired when a body double of Dubya turned out to be more popular than the wooden doll that stood in for John Kerry.Jared (talk) 14:18, 19 February 2013 (UTC)

What in God's name did you just say about me, you little liberal? I'll have you know I graduated top of my class in Liberty University, and I've been involved in numerous secret raids on Wikipedia, and I have over 300 confirmed essays about homosexuality. I am trained in destroying atheism on the internet and I'm the top apologist in the entire wiki network. You are nothing to me but just another target. I will revert your edits with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this 6,000 year-old Earth, mark my words. You think you can get away with saying that liberal claptrap to me over the Internet? Think again, Catholic. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of good Christian spokesmen across the USA and your IP is being blocked right now so you better prepare for the storm, maggot. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your evolutionist life. You're dead, lib. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can mod you in over seven hundred ways, and that's just with my bare mouse. Not only am I extensively trained in combating liberal bias, but I have access to the entire intellectual arsenal of the Good Old Party and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable account off the face of the trusworthy encyclopedia, you little socialist. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little "clever" comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your tongue.

(unindent) I've been poking at Ken over at his little blog. I really wish he had an ounce of what my boxing trainer used to call "testicular fortitude" and would come out from behind his computer and show the world how tough he is.... Sadly, I know this won't happen. SirChuckBObama/Biden? 2012 18:58, 19 February 2013 (UTC)

I don't believe Ken remotely deserves this since he's really only about words and he hasn't disrupted anything on this site, but that's not difficult to make happen. I'm mostly just talking to him here since, totally unprovoked, he frequently crosses the line by talking about physically painful consequences for people just because he doesn't agree with them and by relentlessly taunting them over divisive cultural and hurtful personal issues. Such misplaced arrogance from someone who apparently believes he's untouchable because he's anonymous. Resourceful atheists employ reason and proven strategies to get what they want. Creationist cultists embarrass themselves with laughable incompetence in a fantasy world run by a barbaric slumlord god. Olé olé olé.

It's actually kind of fun... I never got into much Ken poking, I was busy Jinx baiting before he disappeared.... and I love this quote from Ken "By the way, with the notable exception of Matt Barber, real men don't box, they are martial artists! If you doubt me, just ask the Bible believing creationist Chuck Norris." Why don't you tell Mike Tyson, George Foreman, Sugar Ray Robinson, Evander Hollyfield and Muhammad Ali that they aren't real men. In fact, please do this, I want to watch the carnage that ensues.

I've been training in, mainly, TMA for 22 years now. I train with some who have been training for over 50 years.

Question: Are Occidental methods of hitting people (say, Boxing, Fencing, Savate etc) not also "Martial Arts"?

Yes, boxing is generally considered a Martial Art. According to my incredibly short internet search, any codified system of combat is technically a martial art. SirChuckBBATHE THE WHALES!!!! 22:01, 19 February 2013 (UTC)
Since "martial" derives from "Mars", the Roman god of war, anything to do with fighting is a martial art. In a modern context, you could even argue that someone skilled in logistics is a martial artist. rpeh •TCE 22:05, 19 February 2013 (UTC)

I don't remember him mentioning anything about his frightening martial ability until I challenged him to a boxing match, which he quickly refused (for the record, after he said that he was martial artist. I consented to opening the rules up to allow mixed styles. No answer as of this writing.) I think I added something to the Ken Mythos.

Yeah, Chuck, that's exactly it. If you believed any of the stuff he says, you'd have to believe he's some sort of renaissance man. He has at some time or other claimed to work in every job from bounty hunter to recruitment, and his hobbies are more or less limitless. Check out his latest, he's a great dancerimg!

Didn't Ken and the rest of the fools just accuse Obama's skeet shooting picture of being a mock-up? And NOW the putz is trying to say he's got the MA-CHEEZ-MO to be a martial artist? I personally don't care what Obama's hobbies are (or aren't), but at least he has a freaking picture to prove a point. Just how Ken's dance partners/classmates/whatever random girl he says he interacted with was always attractive/long-haired/creationist, I'm waiting for the stories where he knocks out a Darwinist/atheist/Catholic with a round-house kick, and all of his BIBLE BELIEVING sparring partners are tough as nails. Poht (talk) 00:17, 20 February 2013 (UTC)

My input: As well as SirChuckB, I've also offered to match up against Kenneth in a cage, but I'd be under 140lbs for the fight unlike SirChuck who's a heavyweight. Kenneth hasn't had the spine to accept either challenge.

Now, Kenneth, practising kata does not make you a fighter. It makes you a mime and a dancer. The key word of the term 'martial arts' is 'martial' pertaining to fighting. Painting pictures of boxers does not make you a martial artist. Boxing and the other 'western' (and sometimes not particularly western) arts such as Sombo and Savate are all martial arts. Anything that is a coherent syllabus and can consistently turn out competent fighters can be considered a martial art. The only people who would dispute that are those making money by fleecing parents by giving kids a new rainbow coloured belt every few months.

On mission: Might it be worth tackling a few articles on MA woo? Stuff like the 'death touch' rubbish?

"An above average grade in a social dance class" I don't think I've ever said ROFL, but... ROFL. He is boasting about getting a B in social dance, he'd obviously say "excellent grade" if he got an A. There aren't words for how pathetic that is. --Marlow (talk) 04:21, 20 February 2013 (UTC)
I love how Ken's blatant lies attempts to justify himself always make him look an even bigger fool. 'You say my grammar are bad? Somebody pays me to write for them!" "You say my spellign is bad? I once won a spelling bee!" "You query my martial arts prowess? I once got a B in a social dance class!" BTW, WTF is "social dance?" Does that mean you get anti-social dancing? What's that - the mosh pit? --PsyGremlinSermā! 07:50, 20 February 2013 (UTC)
Social Dance is class offered at many American Universities. They teach a variety of partner dances: ballroom, swing etc. Getting a B in it requires little more than a pulse. --Marlow (talk) 14:40, 20 February 2013 (UTC)
Getting a B in it at least requires you to be more than a socially mal-adapted mutant who nobody would get anywhere near the second they heard him open his mouth. The classes themselves are quite social. Dancing with lots of different partners is encouraged, so it's a really nice way to meet new people. Does anyone think that's in Ken's wheelhouse? I don't know if people in other countries do the dance styles they teach in social dance classes. At least in the US being able to dance passably is a good skill to have. Growing up in Texas, I escorted girls to cotillions and had a lot of fun. Good stuff. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 15:52, 20 February 2013 (UTC)

My alma mater also had a social dance class, if by alma mater we mean third-grade recess. It was exactly one class, quickly assembled in a teachers' lounge because it was too rainy to go outside and they were fumigating the gym, our regular indoor venue. We didn't get graded. The definition of "social dance" is "a gathering of dancers, none of whom expect the event to be followed by sex." Whoover (talk) 22:03, 20 February 2013 (UTC)
I challenge that definition. As one of the (student) instructors of a college swing dance extracurricular during the gap-khakis swing dance uptick, I pulled outrageous tail. Hipocrite (talk) 13:20, 21 February 2013 (UTC)
This isn't third grade. You can get all kinds of ass dancing. Go to a country show at a hipster bar and watch.
