  • RJJensen edited only once more than CollegeRepublican
  • the editing sysops are divided into two groups: the old guard, who created their accounts in 2007, and the not-yet-outed-parodists of the year 2009
  • last March, 501 editors made 13,009 edits, this March, there are only 226 editors, making 7481 edits. This site is growing rapidly!

RW is more vibrant, counts more edits and more editors. And it is not dominated by an old guard...

CP not fans of liberals on Richard Posner's list of "top public intellectuals"

Just wanted to recount my ten minutes of trying to troll Conservapedia, for what it's worth.

Reading the article on Ann Coulter for lulz, and noticed this little gem: "U.S. Federal Judge Richard Posner called her one of America's top public intellectuals"

Kind of vomit-in-your-mouth worth stuff, huh? But then I decided to check out this list of "top public intellectuals". It's not only 700 names long (which sort of lessens the sting from your burning esophogaus) but includes such folks as Chomsky, Carson, Zinn, Said, Sunstein, Krugman, etc. etc. etc.

So, I figured, why not append this glowing endorsement to everyone's page? Within minutes the intrepid TerryH [1]img had used the nuclear option (including wiping out an even more innocent edit from months ago). — Unsigned, by: 173.32.90.78 / talk / contribs

Voting

WIGOs seem to be getting a lot of votes recently. Is traffic up? Or is it just because there are fewer WIGOs because not as much is going on over there? Tetronian you're clueless 01:45, 6 April 2010 (UTC)

Maybe it's that the new WIGOs are awesome. Keegscee (talk) 02:14, 6 April 2010 (UTC)
At Tet, it's both. Our traffic is slowly increasing, whereas their activity is slowly declining. We are now a bigger site by all measures except people coming to laugh adding pageviews. We have more editors, more edits, and probably more (true) content. ħumanUser talk:Human 04:15, 6 April 2010 (UTC)

It's all got such a TK sort of feel about it, doesn't it? The whole desire to say things off WP, so they're less likely to be used as evidence of things like harassment and so forth. Which is probably why, when he got blocked for harassing and threatening here, he didn't repeat a single word of it over at WP, where he could easily post to your talk page. Funny, that. --Kels (talk) 21:25, 6 April 2010 (UTC)

This is funny indeed. While I can see the advantage of using a wiki to "prepare" his "case" (formatting, etc.), he could use any wiki. But as I was "analyzing" some of what he has typed, I suddenly realized that CP is the dumbest one to choose - he can't type "rationalwiki" on that wiki! 16'll get you twenty that that page is dead and he's working on it elsewhere, once he realized what a pain it will be not being able to actually type his adversary's name. Oh, and far as the "TKish" aspects, you do know this is a TK joynt, right?

Menendez recall committee

Andy might actually have a chance. Tetronian you're clueless 13:09, 6 April 2010 (UTC)

You'd have thought, by now, that Hurlbut/TerryH, as an Andy fan, would have asked Andy to take a more flattering photo of himself. Ideally one which doesn't make him look like a sex offender. Though thinking about it, that photo of Hurlbut is deeply disturbing too. Webbtje (talk) 13:22, 6 April 2010 (UTC)

There is a fairly decent AP photo by Rich Schultz, only the shirt Andy's wearing looks like it's from a Moldavian sales bin. mb 15:43, 6 April 2010 (UTC)
This one? Andys Monitor.jpg — Sincerely, Neveruse / Talk / Block 15:48, 6 April 2010 (UTC)
No, the one from the Hurlbut piece about the March for Life. It's the same shirt though. Come to think of it, the shirt in the AACP video doesn't look all that different either. Either this man owns exactly one shirt, or he has a real hard-on for PET polyester filament yarn in 1972-formula Columbia blue. mb 16:13, 6 April 2010 (UTC)
IIRC he wore a different shirt (white) for his appearance at the Colbert Report. but the tie looks the same however. Thieh"6+18=24" 17:44, 6 April 2010 (UTC)
Andy.mplayer.1.png Andy.mplayer.2.png
BZZT WRONG BITCH. It's blue. It does look like a slightly paler blue on my monitor but that means absolutely nothing. Look at the 70s collar and the button on his cheapo pseudo-Italian cuff in the right picture. It could EASILY be the same shirt AGAIN. mb 18:49, 6 April 2010 (UTC)
What a good looking man. Keegscee (talk) 19:39, 6 April 2010 (UTC)
Fact of the day: Andy shops at a Sears stuck in the '80s. – Nick Heer 20:23, 6 April 2010 (UTC)
If that's the same shirt, then it all makes sense now. The AAPS video has the intermediate shade of blue, and so the same shirt is getting paler as time goes on. What bleach is Andy using to have that uniform colouring again? ThiehZOYG I edit like Kenservative! 05:21, 7 April 2010 (UTC)

Returning to the original topic

As per the topic of the header, I think it is kind of interesting actually. The NJ state constitution clearly states what I think are the recall parameters. The state courts of NJ are constricted to what the state constitution says. The argument from Menedez is that there is a conflict with the Federal constitution. I don't think that can be settled in state court. The ruling they did get though was not that the recall was constitutional but rather that you could not stop the petition processes on the claim alone. That "standing" wouldn't exist for the constitutional claim till the signatures had been gathered and a recall election was put forward. Ultimately, I think the NJ state courts are bound to rule that the petition is valid under state constitution. However, whether there is a conflict between the state constitution and the federal constitution is a more interesting question. Has Andy ever argued a case before the national supreme court? I know he filed amicus curiae briefs all the time, but hell anyone can do that. I don't think he has ever actually been on council for a major enough case. I am interested. tmtoulouse 19:46, 6 April 2010 (UTC)

It is very interesting, especially as an NJ resident. Initially, I was surprised that the case made it to the Supreme Court so quickly, but Trent's point about the state constitution conflicting with the lack of federal precedent explains why. The problem (which I think Nutty brought up previously) is this: the Supreme Court doesn't like to set major precedents when they don't have to, and siding with the state constitution would mean giving states the power to interpret Article 1 of the Constitution (since it does not mention recalls), which would be a dramatic and earth-shattering verdict. I would think that they are more likely just to strike down the clause in the NJ state constitution that allows recalls, which they can certainly do under the Supremacy Clause. Tetronian you're clueless 22:38, 6 April 2010 (UTC)
It is still in NJ though right? I thought it was before the NJ Supreme Court, and if my legal understanding is correct they would still be obligated to find based on the NJ state constitution. tmtoulouse 22:42, 6 April 2010 (UTC)
Strike that, apparently a state supreme court does have authority to rule state constitutional clauses as violating national constitutional clauses. tmtoulouse 23:12, 6 April 2010 (UTC)
Right. Since the problem is that the clause indirectly contradicts Article 1 of the Constitution, striking the recall clause seems like the most likely option. If the Court gives the go-ahead for a recall, they will be doing something utterly without precedent and messing with Article 1, so I doubt that'll happen. I'm not sure if this can be appealed to the US Supreme Court, but I doubt it will. Tetronian you're clueless 23:15, 6 April 2010 (UTC)
What do you think of the lower courts decision that says, basically, until a recall election is actually called there is nothing for a court to do? tmtoulouse 23:19, 6 April 2010 (UTC)
It seemed like they were just passing it on to the higher court, since they didn't (or can't) strike down the clause in the NJ state constitution, which of course is the heart of the problem. So, they just passed the buck and said that they couldn't do anything until someone forced their hand. Tetronian you're clueless 23:51, 6 April 2010 (UTC)
I don't think it would hit SCOTUS until/unless the petition succeeded, creating a federal issue - a state actually recalling their Senator. And Andy is disingenuous, I think mentioning CA - if he's referring to the recall of their Governor, a state office of no federal impact. Let's face it, Senators don't work for their states, they work for all of us, in that the federal gov't pays them, not their state. I doubt that is "legally" interesting, but it is still interesting. To me, anyway. ħumanUser talk:Human 02:45, 7 April 2010 (UTC)

Why can't you damn yanks just do it like we do? Don't have anything written down, and let the lads in the HoL/Supreme Court argue it out and not dare to mention that we have a deeply unrepresentative and corrupt parliament which is meant to be supreme.

It's Ok to make poorly informed and nasty personal remarks about a person, but when he refutes their basis you get to shut the discussion off by saying you won't address the specifics because they're allegedly as anomalous as a marathon runner smoking 3 packs of cigarettes a day? Andy Schlafly in a nutshell, really.
Are there any references to the day-age and framework viewpoints to the Genesis creation story on Conservapedia? Anyone? This "literalism" in a vacuum shit to support a YEC framework is getting out of hand. It seems the only biblical hermeneutic Andy and these YEC fundamentalists are capable of employing is EVERYTHING THE BIBLE SAYS THAT AGREES WITH ME IS READ "LITERALLY"/EVERYTHING ELSE IS ALLEGORICAL. In other words, Andy's faith isn't remotely informed by his reading of the bible, rather his reading of the bible is informed by his own ad hoc religion. He is a Christianist.

Fair enough, although PJR's religion has a name - YEC. I'm not sure what to call Andy other than an apostate Catholic or a Christianist. In other words, you know what to expect when you talk to PJR.

For what it's worth, JDWpianist has always been striking me as a kind of expat Jensen. Having grown up in Vienna, I happen to know that he's not always completely accurate, but he seems to be sincerely interested in building a genuine encyclopedia, quietly adding useful article after useful article in exchange for no recognition whatsoever. He may be their absolutely, definitively, irreversibly last and final bona fide contributor. mb 16:28, 6 April 2010 (UTC)
"...sincerely interested in building a genuine encyclopedia..." So you're saying he's opposed to Conservapedia's goals, then. --Kels (talk) 16:54, 6 April 2010 (UTC)
It's true! Some of us actually did attempt to build a genuine encyclopedia by writing real, factual articles, then we ran afoul of Conservapedia's Number One Unwritten Rule: "Andy is always right", and that was that. --BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 17:16, 6 April 2010 (UTC)
Indeed. Of course, some of us built it by copy/pasting WP articles.

I LOL'ed. JWDpianist is an arse. Even if he believes in the idea of creating an encyclopedia, it should be pretty clear that CP is not the place where it's going to happen.

I read that, and it was a good reply, but ultimately pointless. JDW should know by now that Andy is not going to back down, and that even if JDW manages to prove that Andy is wrong, his comments will be quickly oversighted and we'll end up with yet another odd talk page conversation in which Andy appears to be arguing with himself. Even if the comments remain, I'm not sure who else is left to be warned by them? It's hardly a secret that Andy is a deranged lunatic intent on remaking Christianity in his own image, with Jesus being nothing more than a figurehead or a rubber stamp for Andy's Sermon on The Blog. --ConcernedresidentAsk me about your mother 20:19, 6 April 2010 (UTC)

"Concerned Resident", women are more likely to be atheistic, feminist and liberal.

Ah, but Stick my friend, you are going off of the recent retcon story. Originally, Wolverine only had regeneration. The adamantium claws were added by the Weapon X program. This is obviously Obama's secret plan to upgrade his private Readycorps Army (which may not be an army, but has an army sounding name, so we'll assume it's an Army) to supersoldier levels so he can force all dissenters into Fema Camps. SirChuckBPlease Excuse me, I have to go out and hunt giraffes 18:21, 8 April 2010 (UTC)
Retcons are still canon! Plus this is still talking about the 90s, when magneto magneted his ass. Also it totally makes sense; they couldn't just jam metal claws in there, because they'd have to add a whole system to cope with it, like a method of locking them into place, muscles to control it etc... and we all know that Obama's healthcare will be so terrible that they won't have the ability to perform such complex surgery. So they must have been there right from the start. One thing I've always wondered, though; how does he bend his wrists? He's either got some amazingly strong wrist muscles when they're extended, or he shouldn't be able to bend his wrists at all. Also they must retract all the way into his forearms.

The bill creates a "Ready Reserve Corps" as part of its attempt to help reform the national medical response teams which supplement local emergency aid. This is a deliberately stupid interpretation of that section (5210).--ADtalkModerator 00:20, 8 April 2010 (UTC)
I read the articles he linked to - nowhere does it mention "military" or even "militia," so the Reserve Corps in question is obviously a medical emergency response team. It's stunning that anyone could be so hyperbolic or that CP (for all its insanity, there are people even crazier) would allow something like that on the main page. Tetronian you're clueless 00:23, 8 April 2010 (UTC)
I looked into this. The link points to a YouTube video of a Fox News segment. Andrew Napolitano goes off on this tear about how someone is trying to build a corps of 6,000 armed and uniformed doctors. Not joking. Naturally, he doesn't give the numbers of any segments of the bill, thus making it hard to look up. I picked up a few context clues and learned that he was blathering on about Sec. 5210: Establishing a Ready Reserve Corps. What it does is establish an organization similar to the National Guard, but designed specifically to aid in public health emergencies. Actually, it doesn't really establish the organization - Sec. 5210 is an amendment to a bill passed in 1944. What it does is change the organization of the health corps.
Are the corpsman armed? No. Are there 6,000 of them? The section doesn't say. Does it allow the corps to poach men from the National Guard? Not by my reading. In sum: Napolitano is full of shit, and so is BenjaminS. Colonel of Squirrels白山羊不山羊。商讨。 00:34, 8 April 2010 (UTC)
I'm probably being a bit naive here but why would Obama even need to create a new army by using sneaky wording in the healthcare bill. Doesn't he already control the actual military? Plus the national guard. 6,000 doctors/healthcare specialists, armed or not, don't really compare to that. X Stickman (talk) 10:57, 8 April 2010 (UTC)
I'm going to have to find my copy of this book (I've moved so often lately that I have no idea where half my library is any more) but from it, my recollection is that some, but by no means all, employees of the the CDC (and possibly other public health organisations) are members of a "uniformed service" and have uniforms (obviously!) and so on. Of course I can't remember useful details such as the name of said service!--NotANumber (talk) 16:07, 8 April 2010 (UTC)
Just to clarify, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention already has a rapid response section (the Epidemic Investigation Service) which investigates outbreaks of disease caused by anything from food-borne microorganisms (my area of interest) to Ebola and everything inbetween. Some EIS members are part of the uniformed corps referred to in the previous edit but so are other CDC employees. This corps might be called the Commissioned Corps but don't quote me on that.--NotANumber (talk) 16:16, 8 April 2010 (UTC)

I've always wondered if being a judge isn't one of Andy's secret fantasies, actually. To some extent, a lot of ECHR and UK HoL cases do end up boiling down to 'because I said so', just as Andy's done here - it's just that the person or persons saying so have decades of experience and are infinitely more intelligent than Andy are (though it's shaky at times, I know). If Andy was to become a judge, I think he would be a little bit like this (explanation for why this is so fucking hilarious at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jeremy_Thorpe, incidentally, from 'Homosexuality scandal' onwards, though it is a stunning sketch without the foreknowledge anyway).

Everything with "corps" in it is a military organization, obviously. Marine Corps, Peace Corps, Americorps... TheMayor (talk) 15:23, 8 April 2010 (UTC)

Didn't she die like 30 years ago?

yet there she isimg, spreading the cancer. Perhaps I'm being too nitpicky, but I think that even in a vacuum the rest of the statement would earn the whole thing some scorn. --Opcn (talk) 17:58, 8 April 2010 (UTC)

OH NOZ! $700,000 went to Planned Parenthood affiliates...that give breast cancer screenings and mammograms... — Sincerely, Neveruse / Talk / Block 18:03, 8 April 2010 (UTC)
Don't you see, they are treating the breast cancer caused by the abortions so that they can have the women have more abortions. It's crystal clear. Big red truck, duh... Ravenhull (talk) 18:47, 8 April 2010 (UTC)

Nuke WIGO

Sorry to be a nuisance but TK, not Andy, posted the news item about the reduction in the number of nukes the US has. --NotANumber (talk) 20:59, 8 April 2010 (UTC)

Fixed, nice catch. Acei9 21:00, 8 April 2010 (UTC)
I was about to fix this, so if anyone asks, I'm the one who did. — Sincerely, Neveruse / Talk / Block 21:01, 8 April 2010 (UTC)
Not that it matters, I removed it because it ruined an otherwise decent wigo. -- Nx / talk 21:04, 8 April 2010 (UTC)
I agree with Nx, TK aint funny. Acei9 21:05, 8 April 2010 (UTC)
(EC) Thanks Ace. I've enjoyed RW for a long time and it's nice to be able to help out once in a while, albeit in minor ways. I'm sorry for ruining the WIGO though! --NotANumber (talk) 21:07, 8 April 2010 (UTC)
TK is not funny to the cabal. The cabal can go fuck themselves. — Sincerely, Neveruse / Talk / Block 21:07, 8 April 2010 (UTC)
