Really tired of the same old ads.

Anybody else?

I hate the Azaelia Banks ads here on DU because I hate rap.

I hate mousy Flo in the Progressive commercials.

I hate that fucking stupid song in the ebay commercials.

These are three of my personal "most hated" list. Overall when I stop to think that all of the fact that everyone in the commercial is a paid actor, I start hating it then, and it spirals upward exponentially from there.

Take away one win for the republicans

I see with some satisfaction that Parnell conceded to Walker. Good, there is still some hope for a Democratic win in the senate, although Begich would have to get nearly 60% of the absentee votes cast. He's come from 3000 back to beat Stevens in 2008, so don't close the door on this one yet.

Alaskans you're going to need to smoke tons of grass

To survive the "senator for life" moniker that seems to come with every Republican election to a Senate seat. Good thing you at least had the sense to legalize it.

So it's a double edged sword for Sullivan, he got elected but he can't lock up people any more for sparking up. So the repeal effort for prop two is probably underway right now in the Sullivan offices, people having fun? Can't have that, it sticks in a republicans craw!

How the hell did Walker squeak out a win over Parnell though?

Hey if you feel shitty now...

Tune in to any right wing hate radio tomorrow, and I guarantee you can feel even worse.

Any gluttons for punishment out there?

CNN question

Did something happen in the last week or so where EVERY topic on the CNN page has a video that automatically begins playing when you click on the story? I've pointedly ignored the stories in the past that have the camera by them as I have a crappy internet connection, and just in general would prefer to read my articles rather than have them read to me.

Anyone else notice this or am I just the lucky one?

I've been looking for a forum like this for a long time.

Hello everyone,

I've only recently found this place and I really enjoy it. It's nice to be somewhere online where the truly demented don't seem to dominate every forum. I'd reached a point where I ignored all the user commentary because it was so vitriolic. I've only been here a few days, and I've already noted there are some of you with whom I am simpatico.


Concisely says it all


Portray all government mismanagement as a cover up conspiracy against the people

Believe that no government is good government

Base your philosophy on no compromising although the success of our republic has been based on this ideal for more than two centuries

Falsely portray that all government programs undercut your liberty

Have equally damaged both the Republican and Democratic party through deceitful propaganda

Perpetuate the lie that the size of government is increasing, even though we have 600K less government employees today than in 2008 (source: U.S. Labor Department)

Preach anarchy by spreading paranoia that our own government is our greatest enemy which perpetuates unwarranted public mistrust in government

Believe that all liberal policies are unconstitutional

Very arrogantly think you represent the founding fathers and understand the constitution more than anyone else

Perpetuate the fallacy that all federal regulations hinder your freedom

Demonize public service, a once proud career for Americans
