Andy Wants to Know[edit]

Why didn't Obama stay in the dorms as most law students do?img I can't imagine what Andy is getting at. To deal dope? Have gay orgies? According to his landlord it was cheaper, even though he had to commute farther. Maybe Andy knows this too and is hinting that you don't belong at Harvard Law School if you can't even afford the dorm. Whoover (talk) 23:59, 5 December 2013 (UTC)

I thought perhaps that Andy, scion of the renowned Phyllis, who has had everything handed to him on a well connected plate, was making some kind of statement about Obama being elitist and not wanting to associate with those salt of the earth Harvard types. AMassiveGay (talk) 01:50, 6 December 2013 (UTC)
As a law student who has never lived in dorms, preferring to rent out a student house with my friends, I can testify we have engaged in unspeakable depravities against all laws of god and man including but not limited to repeated and unapologetic seeking congress with Goats and other farmyard animals, incessant and vigorous buggery when we should have been going to church or reading the conservative bible project, worshipping of Allah, Nyarlathotep, and Liberal Jesus, not despising the poor and needy, treating women as if they were actually people, and wiping our bottoms with transcripts of Andy's court appearances. Clearly Obama has engaged in similar depravities and is legally required to thus be removed from office and executed for high treason. Judge HoldenThe Judge Smiles 01:52, 6 December 2013 (UTC)
Very few graduate students stayed in campus housing at my undergrad university (there weren't many options) and there simply was no housing available at all at my law school. Does Harvard have a policy that law students must stay in university housing first year? If not, Andy's making shit up again. Even if so, who cares. Another petty jab from a jealous failure. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 03:22, 6 December 2013 (UTC)
Oh I get it. The word I missed was "cheaper." Lol. Harvard housing isn't cheaper than living off campus. What a nut. He'll say anything to take a shot at Obama. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 05:08, 6 December 2013 (UTC)
Dorm life blows. You get to wake up every morning to the sound of some guy hocking his guts out in the bathroom, and in general you have very little privacy, which means you have to see stuff you don't want to see and you have trouble hiding stuff you don't want others to see. I can see why anyone would want to avoid it; and if you have the money to do so, why not. There's no reason to go through a bunch of unnecessary BS just to be a man of the people. Some of the genuine proletarians, such as Adolf Hitler and Josef Stalin, who rose to power, didn't do much to help the proletariat, so I see no reason to say that it's beneficial for a leader to come from the same background as "plain folks". Glideslope (talk) 05:17, 6 December 2013 (UTC)
He added that. He first added "single" when somebody linked this showing only 33% lived in dorms, so that he could claim that number didn't apply. Then he added "cheaper" in reaction to Obama's landlord saying the rented apartment was cheaper. I can imagine Andy taking an aptitude test in high school, with the result being "anything but lawyer." Whoover (talk) 05:20, 6 December 2013 (UTC)

Obama did or said something to Andy at Harvard. Wish I knew what it was. Kicking his ass in a debate? Making fun of his goofy voice? Occasionaluse (talk) 14:27, 6 December 2013 (UTC)

maybe Obama told Andy that he had less chance of being president than a black man. AMassiveGay (talk) 14:35, 6 December 2013 (UTC)
The mere act of attending the same class would be an insult to Andy's ego as it would mean that an uppity liberal black guy was considered an equal to the scion of american conservatism, and his vastly evident success and acclaim would drive andy to nigh homicidal fury even before he became president. Judge HoldenThe Judge Smiles 16:51, 6 December 2013 (UTC)
At one time Psygremlin was in contact with a journalist who was researching those Harvard days of Andy and Barack. We know that they were in the same class from the photo but as far as I know Andy has never mentioned it. Don't you think most people would name-drop something like that? So I certainly expect that something got Andy's goat about Obama during those days. Redchuck.gif ГенгисYou have the right to be offended; and I have the right to offend you. Moderator 21:55, 6 December 2013 (UTC)
I bet Obama made fun of Andy's weird laugh. Who wouldn't? Spud (talk) 14:33, 8 December 2013 (UTC)
I wonder if Andy looks and Obama and thinks 'it should be me in the white house'?AMassiveGay (talk) 14:57, 8 December 2013 (UTC)
I reckon that of course he does. He stood for the senate or congress didn't he. He, and his mother, would have seen that as his first step towards the white house. Then to see the uppity negro who beat him to be HLR pres beat him to the white house must have REALLY hurt. Oldusgitus (talk) 15:45, 8 December 2013 (UTC)
(ec) I honestly think than Andy ran for HLR Pres and was one of the 17 or 18 candidates Obama beat. The thing is, given his mother, Andy would have been touting himself as the conservative candidates, but I remember reading at the time that conservatives threw their weight behind somebody called Rosenberg, or Goldstein, can't remember the name. And we all know how well Andy deals with defeat. But his whole anti-Obama thing is personal, he's gone way beyond the usual right-wing nuttery. --PsyGremlinPraat! 14:59, 8 December 2013 (UTC)

The Youth[edit]

'My impression is' 'the youth...' (collective noun) indicates a communist point of view. 171.33.222.26 (talk) 15:28, 6 December 2013 (UTC)

Red Telephone to Ken[edit]

Ken, Ken, Ken! Andy has now allowed adding comments to links to articles on MPL.img Now is your chance to add a short little intro to each of your marvelous articles, increasing the readership and thus finally crushing Darwanism forever.— Unsigned, by: 110.32.30.203 / talk / contribs

Red ... Ken ... where did the newts go? 171.33.222.26 (talk) 13:57, 3 December 2013 (UTC)
I don't know why, but the conservative words thing just makes me really sad for Andy. You might be able to target the ignorant with bald faced claims about earthquakes, global warming, video game violence and vaccines, but this is ridiculous. I guess what's even more sad is the fact that I've added at least a dozen words. Occasionaluse (talk) 14:09, 3 December 2013 (UTC)
Andy's been cutnpasting his posts into edit comments for years. It's not a particularly helpful way to use MediaWiki, but MPR isn't collaborative; it's propaganda and lies. Ho hum. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 18:15, 3 December 2013 (UTC)
Red Ken:) I have my suspicions this guy is actually a socialist--Mercian (talk) 22:05, 3 December 2013 (UTC)
Oi Kenny Baby. don't think Andy would be too happy about THIS.img How is the book going BTW, finished it yet? Or have you been fapping off the naked ladies instead ? I thought such things where forbidden by the Bible.— Unsigned, by: 110.32.30.203 / talk / contribs PowderSmokeAndLeather: Say something once, why say it again?.Moderator 03:24, 4 December 2013 (UTC)
Where does it forbid that? The closest I can find is the prohibition on worshiping graven images. --65.101.119.25 (talk) 22:14, 4 December 2013 (UTC)
But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart. —Matthew 5:28. Fapping off Jared Leto is permissible. Whoover (talk) 01:34, 5 December 2013 (UTC)
"But Onan knew that the child would not be his; so whenever he slept with his brother’s wife, he spilled his semen on the ground to keep from providing offspring for his brother. 10 What he did was wicked in the Lord’s sight; so the Lord put him to death also." Genesis 38:9-10 Nate Keaton (talk) 01:58, 5 December 2013 (UTC)
Onan's crime was financial, not sexual. He ignored his responsibility under Levirate marriage to get his dead brother's wife pregnant because he (Onan) would lose his inheritance. It was his father, Judah, who ordered the impregnation. A resulting son would have been considered the older brother's, and scored the estate. Onan pulled out, which is not the same at all as fapping unto the Lord. Onanism is a bad rap, which should not be propagated at a site dedicated to the truth. Whoover (talk) 03:38, 5 December 2013 (UTC)
Probably the only instance where pulling out actually worked. There's another tell that the Bible is fiction. --Kels (talk) 23:58, 7 December 2013 (UTC)
BTW, Onan's brother was called Er, which is perhaps my favourite Old Testament name, though Abishag would be a close second. Cantabrigian (talk) 09:41, 5 December 2013 (UTC)
These sorts of things really do put it all into context, don't they? Ajkgordon (talk) 12:16, 5 December 2013 (UTC)
I can't believe I actually learned something reading this page. Thanks Whoover. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 05:12, 6 December 2013 (UTC)
Genesis 38 is one of those great "how can people take this stuff seriously" moments. After Er and Onan were killed by the Lord, the father, Judah, decided Er's wife, Tamar, was at fault. Rather than sacrifice his remaining son to the curse, he told Tamar, "no sex for you." So she waits until Judah's wife dies, dresses up as a prostitute and sells her services to Judah. The resulting progeny is the ancestor of David and Jesus. What the fuck? No wonder the rabbis and priests make the chapter about masturbation. What's the real message? For the "you can't make this shit up" file, Tamar's bastard son who starts the begets to David and Jesus is named Perez. Whoover (talk) 03:20, 7 December 2013 (UTC)

{reset) Didn't Jimmy Carter admit to Matthew 5:28 (Surely merely thinking about it is better than actually doing it? And what is the problem religion in general tends to have with 'the nether regions and what can be done with them by consenting adults'?) 171.33.222.26 (talk) 18:37, 9 December 2013 (UTC)

Lies, Damned Lies, Statistics and Andy[edit]

Due to liberal policies, "1,148,000 Fewer Americans Have Jobs Today Than 7 Yrs Ago." Which liberal policies were those during Bush's second term? How about "2,233,000 More Americans Have Jobs Today Than on the Last Day of the Bush Administration"? Looking at the chart at BLS, it sure looks like the reversal of some policy in January 2009 took a bit to kick in but ultimately did the trick. Why doesn't Andy expect people to follow up on his claims? He really seems to think that if he says it, it's true. Whoover (talk) 02:16, 8 December 2013 (UTC)

It's the same for practically any wingnut cause. They're targeting the ignorant/paranoid and it actually works. It doesn't matter how untrue, if you say something bad about Obama (the last one was closing the embassy to the Vatican), at least 25% of Americans are going to believe it, simply because they want to. Most of these people never get facts from outside of their little bubble. WND says Obama is closing our Vatican embassy. FactCheck says this is completely untrue, but FactCheck is run by liberals and I don't believe a word they say; Obama is trying to close the embassy to the Vatican. Occasionaluse (talk) 17:08, 9 December 2013 (UTC)

Mandela[edit]

Random Editor: Hey Andy, how about some love for this amazing hero who just died?img Andrew Layton Schlafly: Sure thing! How's about I piss all over the country he worked to free?img What a prick. PowderSmokeAndLeather: Say something once, why say it again?.Moderator 02:04, 6 December 2013 (UTC)

that's an odd site he has chosen to link to as a cite. AMassiveGay (talk) 02:12, 6 December 2013 (UTC)
The death wiki? I think Schlafly was adding on to something that JoMar had posted. PowderSmokeAndLeather: Say something once, why say it again?.Moderator 02:15, 6 December 2013 (UTC)
Wow... more than ever, Andy has just proven himself to be a misanthropic cunt. The malignant bubo is incapable of saying anything positive about anything, let alone one of the greatest humans to ever walk this planet. I hope he gets what's coming to him one day. --PsyGremlinPraat! 04:21, 6 December 2013 (UTC)
Andy didn't indicate the connection (if any) between Mandela and the South African problems he mentioned, or what point (if any) Andy was trying to make. The news article he cited is from 2004 and doesn't mention Mandela. It's as though he was just throwing random information up there. Glideslope (talk) 04:31, 6 December 2013 (UTC)
I see it as not-so-subtle racism. He obviously hates "liberals," but doesn't know enough about black folks or Safrican history to comment on any particular policy or achievement, so all he can do is libel the guy by insinuating that he's responsible for some bad stuff that happens everywhere that he wasn't in a position to fix anyway. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 05:07, 6 December 2013 (UTC)

Andy's in between a rock and a hard place on Mandela. The man was the closest thing the world could agree upon as a living saint, and only an unrepentant racist would seriously try to play something like the "he was a terrorist" card or otherwise besmirch his reputation. Problem is, Ronald Reagan and the Republican Party were way on the wrong side of history as far as apartheid went. If Reagan's infallibility is to be protected at all costs, then Andy has no choice but to throw Mandela under the bus. Easiest way to do that is to associate the grand old man with the fact that the country, like so many of the countries who endured colonial/white-minority settler rule, has some serious social/political/economic issues. PowderSmokeAndLeather: Say something once, why say it again?.Moderator 05:27, 6 December 2013 (UTC)

Nelson Mandela dies and all he can say how South Africa is riddled with crime and poverty[1] where America is a haven of no crime, no poverty and wonderful healthcare. He then supports his views on the talk page[2], to make it worse Hurblet prints another "Obama is a Nazi" story.[3]. Excuse my anger but these people are total cunts.--Mercian (talk) 07:34, 6 December 2013 (UTC)

Take a look up slightly Mercian. And Psy, although we all knew this was coming my sympathies to you and your country. You have lost a great and inspirational man and a wonderful leader. He showed us all, including schlafly, what true humility and forgiveness means. In some ways I almost wish I was visting the family so I could go and pay my respects in person. Oldusgitus (talk) 07:42, 6 December 2013 (UTC)
I never saw the above entry, sorry about that, I am not South African but Nelson was loved in the UK and throughout the world. A decade ago I dated a Zulu girl, and although Mandela was not Zulu she grew up under apartheid and he was a hero to her, despite the ANC and Zulu people not always seeing eye to eye. RIP Nelson Mandela, the mantle of "Great Man" is often over used, not in this case.--Mercian (talk) 07:51, 6 December 2013 (UTC)
My family moved to SA (from the UK) in 1981 and I basically didn't really speak to or see them for the next 5 years or so. They still live there which is what I meant by the visit comment. Oldusgitus (talk) 07:57, 6 December 2013 (UTC)
Thanks guys, very sad day for us all, but amazing to see virtually the whole nation (I'm sure there are some fucktards here, just like I'm seeing "commie terrorist" posts over on Teabagger Facebook) united in mourning a great human being. If anything, the way he managed to unite a country should stand as a shining example for the world. My (white) neighbour was in tears when I told her the news this morning. We've all been bracing for it since he was last in hospital, but even so... PsyGremlin말하십시오 08:36, 6 December 2013 (UTC)
I can think of a few people who I met on my trip to SA who will not be mourning the passing of Mandela. Unfortunately there are still people who veiw the modern South Africa as a lesser nation than it was under (and before) Aparteid. Sad but true :( Worm (talk) 14:58, 6 December 2013 (UTC)

There are still people who think that the wrong side won the US-American civil war, and that's way less recent than the end of apartheid. PowderSmokeAndLeather: Say something once, why say it again?.Moderator 15:14, 6 December 2013 (UTC)

Update[edit]

Andrew Layton Schlafly actually said this: Everything was fine in South Africa, until they got rid of apartheid to satisfy foreign liberalsimg. PowderSmokeAndLeather: Say something once, why say it again?.Moderator 15:46, 6 December 2013 (UTC)

That right there is Schlafly gold. I can't wait to see how Iduan reacts. God, I wish they could keep more good faith editors around to engage Andy. Occasionaluse (talk) 16:10, 6 December 2013 (UTC)
Ok. Ends justify means, even where they perpetuate the kind of "separate but equal" racism that fundies now rail against in their attempt to reframe the history of the civil rights movement. It's a dead lie when they can justify biblical slavery. Apartheid was of a kind with what they already embrace, even if they attempt to reframe the "christian" approach to American slavery. I hope these people finally manage to alienate moderate republicans sometime soon. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 16:26, 6 December 2013 (UTC)
(ec) Wow. Just wow. I'm tempted to sock up and give that racist piece of shit a piece of my mind, but Koward would block and vaporize it instantly. South Africa was struggling desperately before apartheid ended, backed by a totally fake economy (hell, we had 2 exchange rates - one for us, one for the rest of the world). Things only looked good, because the government was spending 90% of its money on 4% of the populations, so of course the white areas had good roads, hospitals, schools etc. The country is struggling because suddenly it has to bring 80% of the population up to a decent standard of living, having been neglected for 40 years. It's not perfect and there are problems, but anything is better than the previous regime.
Then again, Andy can't say apartheid was bad, because it was propped up by St Ronnie and his merry men. PsyGremlinTal! 16:29, 6 December 2013 (UTC)
Andrew Schlafly. Supporter of Apartheid. Let any who try to claim he is not a racist shitstain remember this. As for his contempt for Mandela the reason is obvious. Mandela represented all that Andy despises in that he was an uppidy black socialist "rabble rouser" who openly consorted with communists and other filtyhy liberals and yet ousted the conservative white men who ruled his country with utmost popular support both in SA and globally and was reveared for decades as a living legend and moral authority, thus usurping another of Andy's personal wank fantasies just like a certain other black liberal. Judge HoldenThe Judge Smiles 16:46, 6 December 2013 (UTC)

I have, in the past, argued that Schlafly was not so much a racist bigot as he was one of these "race-blind" conservative types who was unable to see the fundamentally racist structure of the society he lives in. I take that back. Even when confronted with an explicitly, overtly, make-no-bones-about-it racist society, he is apparently unable to understand the suffering of people who do not share his skin color. He certainly comes off as a nothing more than a common bigot, one who thinks that particular types of people need to learn to keep in their place, in that thread. PowderSmokeAndLeather: Say something once, why say it again?.Moderator 17:02, 6 December 2013 (UTC)

That screen capture should be posted on as many websites as possibly, especially ones that people who consider sending their children to him for schooling read. A racist hate filled xenophobic bigot should not be allowed to teach children. He will probably wake up tomorrow and realise he has gone to far, too late arsehole. Ken, it's time to show your machismo and pull him up on it--Mercian (talk) 17:52, 6 December 2013 (UTC)
I am not convinced he is an out and out racist. I think he is such an extreme contrarian that he is against whatever it is he thinks liberals are for regardless of what that might be and his own arrogance makes it impossible to see how it makes him look. The perils of his own strictly black and white world view AMassiveGay (talk) 18:04, 6 December 2013 (UTC)
How do you distinguish between an out-and-out racist and someone who offers that apartheid was a perfectly fine system that was destroyed by meddling foreign liberals? He's missing the shaved head and some tattoos? It doesn't really matter what intellectual path got him to his conclusion. Contrarian or not, you can't talk about how the trains ran on time under apartheid and not be racist. Whoover (talk) 18:40, 6 December 2013 (UTC)
Sure you can. You can be an insensitive ideological cognitively-dissonant pillock. I thought we'd already established that about him. Ajkgordon (talk) 19:04, 6 December 2013 (UTC)
I get what your saying but at this point I have to conclude he is both an insensitive ideological cognitively-dissonant pillock and a flat out racist. Openly spitting on the overthrow of apartheid (and declaring it liberal and thus pure evil) coupled with other statements (such as his supporting the BNP) not to mention the obsessive propagation of blatantly racist conspiracy theories about Obama all add up to a decidedly shitty closet racist. He may not know hes racist, or just tells himself hes not racist, but he sure as all hell is racist. Judge HoldenThe Judge Smiles 19:18, 6 December 2013 (UTC)
I still wonder if the support of the BNP wasn't more ignorance than sympathy, but it's pretty hard to make that claim for apartheid. PowderSmokeAndLeather: Say something once, why say it again?.Moderator 19:22, 6 December 2013 (UTC)

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────That piece of smeg on the face of humanity here in the UK, tebbit, has been doubling down on his previous hatred of Madiba. He tries to justify it in terms of anti-communism but in reality tebbit is a racist. Andy, I am really not sure about. I think he is simply so rabidly anti 'liberal' that he will oppose anything that those he regards as liberal support. tebbit despised Mandela, he lies about it now but he supported the racist regime and opposed sanctions and made a LOT of money from his investments there - he was and is evil. Andy is just a moron imo. Oldusgitus (talk) 19:33, 6 December 2013 (UTC)

And the peanut gallery has hit a little too close to homeimg. By innuendo do you mean "calling you out for your racist bullshit?" PowderSmokeAndLeather: Say something once, why say it again?.Moderator 00:12, 7 December 2013 (UTC)
You know I just realised after flicking through Apartheid's other social policies that Apartheid truly was the system Andy dreams he could live in with ruthlessly enforced conservatism in gender, sexuality, "public decency", and all run by wise white men like himself.

There was lots Andy would like about South Africa during apartheid - no abortion, banning teh geyz, no support for the poor, decentralized government (farming those pesky darkies off to their Bantustans), no illegal immigration (terrorists excluded), death penalty, nuclear weapons, banning porn, banning gambling, political progress really depending on church affiliation, and not least of all, an entire political philosophy based around a covenant with God. Oh, and classroom prayer. How could I forget that? PsyGremlinHable! 03:23, 7 December 2013 (UTC)
How fuck can he say that apartheid was racist "by definition without realizing it makes him seem, "by definition", like a total fuckstick ? I mean, I know he's always only tolerated minorities if they were True Conservatives, but excusing apartheid, even if Saint Ronnie did it, seems beyond the lilly-white pale even for Assfly. This is definitely something that needs to make the rounds on the internet. It's not even about CP at this point. This is about making sure his blatant racism follow him around.

That's actually not wrong. The Civil War was not fought was not to end slavery, but to preserve/restore the Union. Slavery was at the heart the issue that led to the South seceding, and abolition was one of the results of the war, but Lincoln did not go to war to end slavery in the South. When Lincoln was elected, he was going to prohibit slavery in the new territories, which forced the South to secede as, demographically, they would eventually lose their ability to prevent anti-slavery laws from being passed at the federal level. Lincoln's position on slavery and race was complex and evolved, until he finally settled on emancipation. Lincoln did not even enact abolition in border states that had slaves but stayed in the Union (Kentucky, Delaware, Maryland, Missouri, places where slavery was often on the way out, but still existed....) until after the war.

of course Andy could enlighten himself by looking at CP's own page on Mandela and look at the qoute from gingrich (is he considered a rino): Mandela resorted to violence against a government that was ruthless and violent in its suppression of free speech. As Americans we celebrate the farmers at Lexington and Concord who used force to oppose British tyranny. We praise George Washington for spending eight years in the field fighting the British Army’s dictatorial assault on our freedom. Patrick Henry said, “Give me liberty or give me death.” Thomas Jefferson wrote and the Continental Congress adopted that “all men are created equal, and they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, among which are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” Doesn’t this apply to Nelson Mandela and his people?

I Love Terry's Friends[edit]

From the latest hate piece by Bradlee Dean on CNAV (wherein we are taught how Obama is like Mao and Hitler) we have this question: "What would you say if I told you that over 700,000 of the up-and-coming generation graduating from public schools in America each year cannot even read there own high school diplomas?" I know it's petty, but I love stuff like that. Whoover (talk) 06:47, 9 December 2013 (UTC)

Maybe he's so concerned about illiteracy because it's a problem that affects him personally.

A few seconds on google gave me this: Percent of high school graduates who can’t read 19 % http://www.statisticbrain.com/number-of-american-adults-who-cant-read/

Doesn't surprise me a bit. Many of my students at the college level (I'd guess about 10-15%) are essentially high functioning illiterates. They can read single words and short sentences and, of course, don't have a problem texting, but they can't read a paragraph and grasp what it's trying to say. I'd say about 90% have never read a book that wasn't also a movie. The level of incompetence is just as bad in math, where asking people to preform simple operations like dividing or multiplying by two is often too much. These illiterate students often get through the class by working with someone who is able to read. All this a four year university, was pretty shocking when I first started. --Marlow (talk) 20:38, 9 December 2013 (UTC)
Okay, some kids make it through high school without learning how to read. What are they suggesting? Because the more education someone gets, the more likely they are to be independent/liberal. The GOP is the party of the elderly and the uneducated, nowadays. I guess it comes down to the rightwing meme of uneducated blacks voting democrat. It's like they got fooled into voting in their own interests, while teabagging whites got fooled into voting against their own interests. I have a rightwing cousin with a GED on welfare. You know why? According to her, it's somehow Obama's fault. Then again, she wants to exhume my grandfather because she thinks he's not dead.

I suppose they are suggesting there is real issue in the school system, Dean didn't specify. However 19% of high school graduates being functionally illiterate is nothing short of a national scandal, no matter if a lousy human beings also happened to bring it up or not. To me, reading that number says we are not even doing enough to assure kids are learning the essentials. I have no idea if Dean viewed it as "uneducated blacks voting Democrat" or as a problem that affects public school students across most social-economical classes. I have seen what Marlow has seen, which suggests it is a broad issue and not one simply regulated to "the inner city" or what have you.

For me the significant issue is that the US illiteracy rate is pretty comparable with other similar developed countries. Measuring literacy is nigh on impossible because the term is so ill defined which is why the CIA have the US literacy rate at 99% and the US Schools dept at around 81%. Neither is "getting it wrong", they're just using different measures.
So, the headline is like one I remember from the Daily Fail which complained that half of Britain's school kids were below average reading ability and one quarter significantly so. Yeah, right, normal distribution.
Should we be concerned about the levels of illiteracy of school leavers - yes. Is it a major issue that is about to bring about the downfall of Western civilisation and/or demonstrate that US schools are failing - no.
Of far more concern, and you won't find this on Terry's blog, is the US scientific illiteracy brought about by religion distorting the teaching of basic scientific concepts. Innocent Bystander (talk) 17:05, 10 December 2013 (UTC)
For me, the significant issue gets obscured when we look at national literacy rates.

Andy has had a serious hard-on not only for Putin, but for Mother Russia for a few years now.

Sometimes I wonder whether andy was driven so insane by his (one sided) collage nemesis's ascencion to the White House (and thus the usurpation of Andy's dearest dream of absolute power) that his mind literally broke and he is physically incapable of doing anything but vomitting forth anti-obama buzzwords and conspiracies at every opportunity no matter how cognatively dissonant and insane they may be. Then I look back at how he was before Obama became high imam and arch librul witch doctor of the former US and realised his obsessive hatred of all things different and ever changing "conservative whims" always were this insane and petty long before the ebon usurper came back into andy's mind.

Cue the Twilight Zone music. Andy has finally stood up for Ken's obesity nuttiness.

Whoever started that petition he linked to needs to be slapped with a fish. One, because popular appeal is no way to deal with that kind of issue, 2. because there isn't much to support a claim that Schlafly is racially indoctrinating his students, and 3. because there are legit reasons why he should be barred from making a living as an educator, from giving boys and girls separate tests to the obvious mediocrity of his lessons and exams. Trying to peg him for his online comments about Mandela and the BNP detract from actual educational concerns. Schlafly has said some racist stuff. Schlafly from all appearances appears to be a sub-par teacher. Those are very different issues. Moreover, I'll bet whoever posted that has no skin in the game, and otherwise does nothing in terms of actively working for quality education.

What's the likelihood that his peers, noted for teasing him about his supposedly liberal political beliefs, might conflate "socialist" and "not Republican," the way that many on CP do?

To be fair POT did fail to live up to his potential and even he admited it. Almost all the interviews with his peers here in the UK in the past few days have been saying how brilliant he was and how he pissed much of that brilliance up the wall for an extended period of time. He acheived massively more than Andy and his ilk will ever achieve but had he stayed sober during the key years it is likely he would have achieved much more.

I seriously suspect andy's myopia and narcisism has progressed to the point where the ONLY measure of success he can imagine is how closely he thinks someone kowtows to his own far right dogma and how often they manage to come out looking good to him in his ever changing "conservative insights". Thus its entirely true that by andy's standard o'toole was a worthless failure, as any truely successful person would believe what andy believes, talked like andy talks, and hated what andy hated.

Gods that was painful. Think I’d rather go through the Communist Manifesto itself. At least then I could say I read something socially and politically relevant. Anyway, as a longtime fan of the franchise that has had many, many (many) a geeky conversation on it, the accusations the Federation’s “communist” leanings never really made sense to me. Yes, the Federation is presented as having no (official) currency and a (sometimes Mary Sueish) sense of community. But I always attributed that to the use advanced technology rather than ideological demagoguery. Replicators, transporters, and warp drives (as well as an obviously plentiful and easily obtained power source for them) would no doubt remove many of the underlying societal stresses like resource scarcity and overcrowding. With food, resources, and medical supplies plentiful, transportation cheap and instantaneous, and the ability to relocate readily available, it would make a level of sense (and perhaps gives us a measure of hope) that humanity as a whole might dedicate itself to the more lofty goals of exploration and discovery rather than tribalistic warfare and conspicuous consumption. They could just as easily (and perhaps believably) regress to outright hedonism, but that’s the topic of another discussion. As it stands though saying Trek is “communist” is like saying Star Wars promotes belief in psychic powers; yeah, I can see how one can make that conclusion, but there is more to the story than that. End of the day just remember the mantra: “it’s just a show. I should really just relax.” - Tygrehart
^^Yes, it's two new users using a talk page to have an actual discussion about something in the article, in a place where sysops haven't noticed for a while. You know, a small glimmer of actual functioning wiki activity. In particular, PeterKa's nuanced statement that has the Federation being sort of capitalistic and "definitely not Marxism" is at odds with the Main Page characterization of the Obama administration. I'm interested in seeing if modern CP can sustain a discussion like that, and to that end have pointed it out here so that the CP editors who read this page would be made aware of it.

It makes one the worst kind of racist: one who thinks everything was A-OK in the olden days. If you don't see his defense of the Jim Crow laws as deeply racist, that says a lot about you, really. That impression is only made worse by your disgusting "He's a southerner, so it's not that bad" stance. Dendlai (talk) 18:45, 20 December 2013 (UTC)
You misunderstand, his comments are not mitigated by him being a Southerner. I just don't see him as deliberately racist, as in he sees African Americans as somehow lesser. My view is that his view that "well the good old days weren't that bad" stems from an old person who is just blindly nostalgic about "a simpler time" but to the degree that he is complete obvious (and perhaps intentionally) to the plight of Blacks around him rather than any sort of belief that Blacks are undeserving of Civil Rights. There is no doubt of his ignorance. As for his anti-gay views, I thought those would have been obvious beforehand given his fundamentalism.--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 18:59, 20 December 2013 (UTC)
"I just don't see him as deliberately racist, as in he sees African Americans as somehow lesser" His stereotyping of them as entitlement, welfare recipients who were better off living under Jim Crow makes me think he does. He'll probably never admit it to anyone, including himself, but his true beliefs do come across in that interview. --Night Jaguar (talk) 03:07, 21 December 2013 (UTC)

Personally my opinion is that anyone who looks back at the pre-civil rights era south as being "good for the blacks" goes past mere willful blindness and ignorance to flat out racism given how utterly blatant the persecution and disenfranchisement of blacks was in this era, and how public the insanely violent attempts to crack down on attempts to give them basic civil rights was by the south was.

Doubt This Will Be In Andy's Sports News[edit]

So-called overrated sports star Peyton Manning broke the all time record for most touchdowns in a single season with 51; his team is also 13-3 on the year and have won their division (and a first round bye in the playoffs); but you know, only if they had Tim Tebow.--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 21:14, 22 December 2013 (UTC)

Speaking of which, where is Tebow? I'm guessing that now that he's been dropped like a hot potato, Andy has no further use for this greatest conservative sports star. How long until the list gets "trimmed?" --PsyGremlinParla! 04:52, 23 December 2013 (UTC)
Andy brings up some great points. Why doesn't Manning singlehandedly win superbowls? Why doesn't Brady win all of his superbowls singlehandedly? Checkmate. Occasionaluse (talk) 14:51, 23 December 2013 (UTC)
Tebow is still currently without a team. A European team associated with the NFL did offer him a four month contract but he never accepted. There are two possibilities where Tebow can go from here: Hold out and hope another NFL team will hire him during the offseason to help fill their roster (likely as a second or third string quarterback), or become a sports broadcaster for college football. The latter is more likely and does offer Tebow a much longer term, much more secure job that would have television exposure (especially if a major network or ESPN hires him).--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 20:51, 23 December 2013 (UTC)

Santa Schlafly comes to town, and boy, have we been good this year![edit]

So he gave us presents to enjoy!

Let's start slowly, with the little presents. Nononono, the big box will be opened last!

As we look back at the good times, let us reflect on the most logical book ever written - the Bible. And since the Bible is also the truest book ever written, let's simplify things and redefine logic to mean truth.img There are Nazis on the Moon, thus Andy is a colossal idiot. See, it's logic, it's true, so it must be true because it's logic! And because "logos" means "logic", that means that in the beginning, there was logic.img It all makes sense now!

And while we're messing with iconic phrases, let's make it clear that "I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end" is "new age symbolism".img And before you interrupt: The Bible is the most logical book ever written - or at least it will be, once it is cleansed of all this new age liberal claptrap. *Colbert nod*

"Oh, but what's in the big box, Uncle Sid?" you ask? Oh ho ho...

Well, did you ever wonder how Darwin got away with his whole "evolution" thing denying the existence of Adam? It's because "Son of Adam" was mistranslated as "Son of Man".img Without this one mistake, the entire theory of evolution would have been a non-starter. But noooo, because one idiot fell asleep at the wheel, we have these darn Adam-deniers running around, believing that dogs changed into cats to adapt to climate change global warming!

*sigh* If only liberals realized that the logic of Christianity is believing in the Best of the Public,img exemplified in Jesus Christ being the Son of Man... er... I mean... Son of Adam... no, wait... hold on... I thought that was a mistrans-... OH LOOK, THERE GOES SANTA SCHLAFLY IN HIS SLEIGH, PULLED BY HIS TRUSTY REINDEER ENFORCERS KARA AND TERRY (KEN COULDN'T COME, HE'S BUSY CRUSHING EVOLUTION)! *runs* --Sid (talk) 09:58, 25 December 2013 (UTC)

Sid, you filled my Christmas basket with lovely fruity trees, thank you so much! ħumanUser talk:Human 08:10, 26 December 2013 (UTC)
Given that Andy doesn't even get the world's oldest pun (Adam (אדם) literally means "man") - it's no wonder that his little translation project fell foul of any other linguistic hiccups. Just another sign of what happens when you pull stuff out of your arse to suit your agenda, instead of, you kn0ow, researching a bit. Then again, Andy does buy into TK's bullshit about "don't read a book, write a book." PsyGremlinPraat! 10:12, 25 December 2013 (UTC)
Wow... It is good to know that Andy believes centuries of Christian theologians were all incorrect with their explanations until he came along and brought enlightenment; I wonder if he actually sees himself as a prophet of Christianity, or of the Bible? Equal to those mentioned? I love that he sees "ἐγὼ τὸ Α καὶ τὸ Ω" (I am the alpha and the omega) as some sort of New Age wording. Not only is the phrase in the newer translations of the Bible, but the original 1611 King James and in the old Latin Vulgate, in fact, the phrase is used three times before the verse Andy dismissed in the book of Revelation. Andy is so insane when it comes to the Bible, both fundamentalists and atheists can stand together, be appalled, facepalm, and just shake our heads.--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 18:17, 25 December 2013 (UTC)
It's part of the whole Shlafly family women-don't-count crap left over from the ERA battle. "Son of man" could include women, which Andy finds offensive, so "Son of Adam" makes it clear that Christianity is a patriarchy (at least to Andy). It's the same bug up his ass that had him personally thank Markman for changing all the "Children of Israel" to "Sons of Israel," even when it referred specifically to women. Even after Markman was exposed as a parodist, those changes live on. Whoover (talk) 17:22, 26 December 2013 (UTC)

So some of the seeds producing nothing, and others producing "a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown" is proof of negative numbers dominating multiplication with a positive number... the eggnog must have been strong in Andy's house this very night. --PsyGremlinParla! 10:16, 27 December 2013 (UTC)
It always blows my mind how Andy, self-proclaimed devoted reader of the Bible and theologian, can misinterpret the parables so completely, and in utterly baffling ways.--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 23:02, 27 December 2013 (UTC)
Wait, so Andy's entire line of reasoning is that something negative/bad can produce a negative/bad result/outcome? There's grasping for straws, and then there's this.
The worst part is that this is so convoluted and far-out that it won't even be any good as a random deadpan joke (unlike the goldmine that is Conservapedia:Andrew Schlafly's greatest insights - did you know that "And Jesus invented humor" can seriously derail a conversation?). --Sid (talk) 00:01, 28 December 2013 (UTC)

Made the mistake of visiting Terry's blog. Forgot just how paranoid and racist it can be. On how Obama got in power, despite his stupidityimg:

The world may never know for sure, but all the evidence points to a very, very powerful organization being behind this. It could be that much talked about and feared New World Order or it could be a group of organized communists seeking to destroy their only obstacle to world domination, the United States.

If an organization were to undertake the dismantling of a country, it’s laws and it’s culture and do it from within as opposed to a declaration of war, the plan would need to be a stealthy one. One that could proceed under the camouflage of a guilt ridden civilization. Only a modern black male, using the misery of his brethren ravished of slavery and injustice, could orate a policy while implementing the exact opposite of it.

[....]

Back now to the question of Obama’s popularity being in the dumpster and whether or not America will be better off as a result. Surely, if he were a Republican or even a white male or female in the Socialist Democratic Party the threat of his policies would have been, long ago, severely diminished as the people realized they could not believe or trust him.

In some respects Ken is right, despite what we might wish for, religion is not going to go away for a long time because humans are innately gullible and long for a comfort blanket. However, his dogmatic brand of religion is definitely on the back foot with creationism taking a particular hit. Redchuck.gif Генгисpillaging Moderator 09:02, 4 January 2014 (UTC)
Shame. Have we been ignoring Ken again? Hey Ken, do you really think that posting obscure shout-outs on random webpages, claiming victory for things you haven't done, is the sign of a sane person? --PsyGremlinFale! 09:47, 4 January 2014 (UTC)
Now, now; this is all he has, everything else in his crusade against evolution, atheism, and teh gheys hasn't panned out, not to mention his grand anti-Socialism, anti-Abortion, and anti-Dawkins articles Ken was convinced would go forward like a bullet train.

Daily Mail agrees with Andy. Oh wait, no it doesn't. The man is better than any parodist. — Unsigned, by: 131.107.147.33 / talk / contribs
So Mr. Schlafly believes that the media is not being fooled, but is a actually complicit in the deception over Castro's death. What could the motivation be, and who could have the power to keep them all in-line? (even WND). This could only be the same shadowy organization as is running Obama. Lets hope Terry investigates.— Unsigned, by: 71.231.120.148 / talk / contribs
He's said before, he thinks that the media is perpetuating the hoax of Castro's life because they initially misreported his survival, and are now too embarrassed to own up to it. Because news organizations never admit to mistakes.--"Shut up, Brx." 04:23, 4 January 2014 (UTC)

I think this just further evidences the theory that andy honestly thinks he's literally a divinely inspired prophet who is physically unable to ever be wrong, especially whenever he has his "conservative insights". And thats not even going into the fact he is simultaneously a bible literalist and someone who believes he alone is qualified to rewrite the bible to properly reflect "gods word" or his grandiose proclamations on how conservapedia is the most powerful right wing force in history which will convert all america to real true conservatism. This entire debacle is, like every other andyshambles, a direct result of his truly brobdingnagian ego Judge HoldenThe Judge Smiles 11:47, 4 January 2014 (UTC)
Once more, I find that I have credited Andy with having more sense than he actually does. I had imagined that he'd brought up his loony theory again because somebody had challenged him on it or there had at least been some passing reference to Castro. But, no! He's quite happy to bring it up by himself in a completely unrelated thread. He really seems to enjoy being a complete twat. Spud (talk) 13:24, 4 January 2014 (UTC)
andy's desire to believe the most fucking stupid things out of bitter spite for "liberals" is less pronounced than that of peltrectum. Far more attractive to him is to continue to gloat in abject smugness at how deluded and stupid all those "mere mortals" who do refuse to believe his divinations are at any time and with any excuse.
I guess you can call andy a "glass half full" fundie fuckwit because he believes he and his dogma have already "won" (its just a tiny minority of degenerates who have yet to realise it) while terry is a "glass half empty" fundie fuckwit for believing he is one of the elect few "real tru conservatives" who must valiantly resist the evil muslamic socialist negro empire with their divine blogs and sanctified generators till God comes and sends all 7 billion of his personal enemies to hell. Judge HoldenThe Judge Smiles 16:44, 4 January 2014 (UTC)
I always felt that is what really drives fundies; not the idea of their own personal salvation, but the masturbatory desire to see all their enemies, real and imagined, and all the so-called degenerates, suffer eternal pain and punishment for the crime of not being just like them.--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 16:56, 5 January 2014 (UTC)

Judge, thank you for coining "Andyshambles," thereby coining a neologism that combines my fascination with the workings of Schlafly's mind with my man-crush on Malcolm Tucker. Well done. PowderSmokeAndLeather: Say something once, why say it again?.Moderator 13:51, 4 January 2014 (UTC)

Nobody sees fit to comment on the thrust of the thread that contains Andy's Castro-is-dead aside? It's about how North Korea is a liberal's paradise and how the MSM are covering for their hero, Kim Jong-Un, and his brutality. What reason could the New York Times possibly have for not reporting the discredited rumor that Kim had Uncle Jang eaten by a pack of dogs other than liberal deceit? Have we gotten so inured to the "reality" where Kim Jong-Un is a liberal that we don't even notice? It must be brain damage from all the video gaming. Whoover (talk) 00:48, 5 January 2014 (UTC)

Dammit, Daily Beast![edit]

Why are you helping Ken out? MDB (the MD used to be for Maryland, but now means Magically Deliciousthe B is still for Bear) 14:05, 5 January 2014 (UTC)

That's a pretty bad headline, as it really isn't what the article is about. This whole "bad year for evolution" concept seems to come exclusively from this survey. While it does show a 6 point increase in belief in strict creationism since 2010, if you look at the numbers going back to 1982, you see they remain more or less consistent: between 43% and 47% (certainly within the margin of error) every year - except 2010. That one survey seems to be the anomaly, and the 6 point increase a regression to the mean. Belief in evolution guided by god has remained pretty consistent as well. The only one to show any real trajectory is belief in unguided evolution, which has shown a steady increase over the past decade. Looking at the numbers that way, it doesn't look quite so bad. DickTurpis (talk) 15:38, 5 January 2014 (UTC)
Sorry? You expect Ken to have actually read, understood and then accurately represented what the article and underlying data said? REALLY? This is kenny we're talking about. Oldusgitus (talk) 16:11, 5 January 2014 (UTC)

I recommend that everyone READ the article. In full. Just do it. Ignore the headline. It's unfortunate that the author chose an attention-getting headline that just happens to fit right in with Ken's worldview, but that's not what the article was about. A better title would be:

2013 was a good year in general for science teachers, including science teachers in Evangelical Christian colleges, a good year for getting students, even students in Evangelical Christian colleges, to see that science and Christianity can coexist, and even a good year (if you think that's good, which the author, as a teacher at one of those colleges, doesn't) for getting those students, and other young people, to leave religion. It was a bad year for evil outside Creationist groups to interfere in the natural progress of science education, including well-meaning teachers such as myself. And, because of that interference, it was a somewhat good year for getting young people to leave Christianity.

SamHB (talk) 17:03, 5 January 2014 (UTC)

Yeah, basically the gist of the thing is that wingnut Christianity in the US is becoming smaller and more insular as time goes on, and anyone with any sense is deserting the sinking ship. This doesn't strike me as a very Ken-friendly message. I did enjoy that "pro-evolution" bit though. I guess any publication that isn't explicitly wingnut is now on the side of the demons. Kind of goes towards making Giberson's point, eh? --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 17:37, 5 January 2014 (UTC)
Frankly, the whole issue is a red herring anyway. The whole thing is one massive argumentum ad populum. Evolution will only have a bad year when it is disproved. Reasonable measure of success: still true? yup. Win. Worm (talk) 15:29, 6 January 2014 (UTC)

Cake and eating it[edit]

This is genius. Andy's article now has black holes not existing as a counterexample to relativity and simultaneously strange signals from black holes also being a counterexampleimg. I suppose consistency would be too much to ask. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 00:24, 6 January 2014 (UTC)

So black holes are no longer Liberal pseudoscience?--Mercian (talk) 01:29, 6 January 2014 (UTC)
No doubt it's too much to expect that Andy has a subscription to New Scientist so that he can read the whole of the article he cites rather than just quote-mining the headline. Cantabrigian (talk) 10:51, 6 January 2014 (UTC)
Funnily enough I am considering a subscription to New Scientist for the New Year. Is it worth the subscription price?--Stunteddwarf Jabba de Chops 11:16, 6 January 2014 (UTC)
Yes - without a doubt. It's probably the best way of keeping up with the full range of current science. Cardinal Fang (talk) 11:23, 6 January 2014 (UTC)
I don't know. It's really been going down hill of late. Lost most of its pages and now has much more sensationalist reader bait, even the puzzles are crapper than they used to be. I suppose if people don't subscribe it isn't going to get any better, but I think it might be a lost cause already. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 11:44, 6 January 2014 (UTC)
That's the problem with pulling stuff out of your arse - you have to remember all the other things you've pulled out of your arse, in order to make sure you keep the story coherent. In this case, Andy could have just read the list, whilst grabbing hold of the latest arse nugget, but even that proved to be too much for him. PsyGremlinSprich! 12:07, 6 January 2014 (UTC)
I think the "logic" is: article headline says "there's more to space-time than Einstein believed", therefore everything Einstein thought is wrong, therefore relativity is disproved. It involves the same sort of (deliberate) ignorance as thinking that The Origin of Species is the last word on evolution. Cantabrigian (talk) 13:44, 6 January 2014 (UTC)
Don't forget, cake itself disproves relativity (seriouslyimg). --Night Jaguar (talk) 19:04, 6 January 2014 (UTC)
