No Habanero English!

The Queen of Stupid, and current defacto head of the Republican Party - the Sno' Ho'

With the right wing fuming about “English spoken” you would think conservatives would learn to use the language themselves. I mean – if we are going to mandate that everyone speak English in this country…

That means the ignorant conservative types too.

Have ou noticed how many times conservatives go into a furor over something said by a Democrat Politician – only to find out it is a tempest in a teapot (or is that Teabag?) . Once upon a time conservative pundits were masters of the language looking down their narrow noses at the unwashed masses in distaste…

Now, its getting damn hard to find a conservative who can conjugate a verb…

Although they seem to be experts on that conjugation part when it involves somebody you’re not supposed to be “conjugating” with!

Part of the communication problem between those of us on the left and the conservatives…

Is simply they take pride in their ignorance, and can’t understand the English Language – “Is our children learning”…Indeed.

Many English Speakers Cannot Understand Basic Grammar

Research into grammar by academics at Northumbria University suggests that a significant proportion of native English speakers are unable to understand some basic sentences.

The findings — which undermine the assumption that all speakers have a core ability to use grammatical cues — could have significant implications for education, communication and linguistic theory.

The research, conducted by Dr Ewa Dabrowska, showed that basic elements of core English grammar had not been mastered by some native speakers.

The project assumed that every adult native speaker of English would be able to understand the meaning of the sentence:

The soldier was hit by the sailor.”

Dr Dabrowska and research student James Street then tested a range of adults, some of whom were postgraduate students, and others who had left school at the age of 16. All participants were asked to identify the meaning of a number of simple active and passive sentences, as well as sentences which contained the universal qualifier “every.” Continue reading

Texas Republican Combines “I Have Black Friends” and “Obama is Hitler” In Floor Speech

There really ought to be an IQ test to be a Congressman or Senator in the United States. I mean – you are required to have a college degree now for a job with a Federal Contractor loading paper in the copier in a mailroom.

Why exactly should we allow people in office who consistently are too stupid to figure out the difference between Portrait and Landscape???

This clown starts of with the standard white racist conservative “Tom Argument” — I’m not a racist! I have black friends!”

“Uncle Tommy Sewage is a “brilliant man” who I would have voted for President.” “Brilliance” and “Intelligence” in this case being a function of being a chocolate-colored minnow in the shallow end of the pale gene pool, instead of being just another crack whore in the shallow end of brown minnow pool. The vast majority of Uncle Tommie Sewage’s arguments are diaphanously constructed juvenile screeds assembled to keep the gravy train flowing by providing cover for racist conservatives. This one is no different.

A guy by the name of OldSpazzy hits it on the head over on Youtube -

Reductio ad Hitlerum, also argumentum ad Hitlerum, is an ad hominem or ad misericordiam argument, and is an informal fallacy.

The fallacy claims that a policy leads to—or is the same as—one advocated or implemented by Adolf Hitler or the Third Reich, and so “proves” that the original policy is undesirable. For example: “Hitler was a vegetarian, so vegetarianism is wrong.” The tactic is often used to derail arguments, because such comparisons tend to distract and anger.

The argument presented by this conservaclown – Rep. Louis Gohmert of (where else?) Texas is…

Hitler gained power by convincing people who would not normally vote to vote for him. Obama won the Presidency by convincing large numbers of people who don’t normally vote to turn out…

Therefore Obama is Hitler, and Obama is a dictator like Hitler.

Bulldiddle.

Inhofe: U.S. headed toward revolution

Senator Inhofe Invades America

Senator Inhofe Invades America

The overreaching of the federal government is pushing the U.S. towards a revolution, Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.) said today.

“People are not buying these concepts that are completely foreign to America,” Inhofe said at a townhall in Chickasaw, Okla. “We’re almost reaching a revolution in this country.”

Inhofe has been one of the Senate’s most strident opponents of climate legislation and healthcare reform.

Inhofe added that he didn’t need to read the full helathcare legislation before deciding to vote against it. Public opinion and news reports, he said, provided all the information he needed.

“I don’t have to read it, or know what’s in it,” Inhofe said. “I’m going to oppose it anyways.”

Geez… You going to use the same flag as last time?

Glenn Beck ‘Fesses Up – “I’m a Dirtbag”

Glenn Beck ‘fesses-up to being a “Dirtbag”, as well as having been financially hurt by the Boycott.

The funniest accusation is that it is the great mysterious “Powers that be” that are putting the hurt on him – when in actuality it is hundreds of thousands of consumers who have tired of his racist and anti-American rants.

Beck admits to being a recovering alcoholic. And if that is true, I can wish him nothing but success in his continued recovery. However, if this guys stopped drinking…

Why does he still act like he’s suffering the effects of the DT’s?

Daily Show: Betsy McCaughey Toasted

This is a good one! Betsy McCaughey, Health Reform Nutcase extraordinaire on Job Stewart…

This one is the warm up.

Now here is where it get’s serious, the pic quality isn’t as good (I got it off of YouTube), but Stewart really starts asking some tough questions and pointing out a few things -

When the going gets tough…

Indeed.

The question still stands – If the US is 83rd in the world in Infant Mortality…

What exactly makes the current system so great?

If It Quacks Like a Duck… Conservatism and Whining About Being Identified as Racist

This is one of two videos by conservative talk jock Alex Jones. Now, conservatives have dominated the radio air waves since shortly after Raygun killed the Fairness Doctrine, and the FCC began loosening rules on station ownership allowing radio stations to be consolidated as Right Wing propaganda outlets under a few owners. The ability to propagandize their talking points 24 x 7 over the airwaves without criticism, or offering up opposing viewpoints has been a foundation of the success of the Republican Party and the spread of conservatism.

That is beginning to change. And the fear is palpable among conservative commentators who have ramped up vitriolic, and often racist commentary in an attempt to rally the base listenership. This particular conservative, tries and make the rather weak point, that anyone calling conservative commentary “racist”, even when it is racist – is violating the First Amendment Rights and is dragging the country into a totalitarian state.
