  • http://facethesuncastnoshadow.wordpress.com/ Mumbletypeg

    See this is how conflicted I am in modern times. I was recently lamenting to myself how with movies & youtube so portable, via smartphone etc., to view wherever you go — in cafes, on the subway for all I know — no one is going to bother reading anymore, whether a print book or a kindle-thingy or a newspaper. THEN Yglesias's article, linked above, mentions how Kickstarter enabled a wristwatch-mimicking thing ("Pebble") to get developed and I'm all like "Ohhhh, shiny!"

  • poorgradstudent

    If Kickstarter is pissing off business school people and economic writers for Slate, then that's the best reason for its existence of all!

      Hey, we could use a good pivot man. Are you reporting for duty?

    • http://loljazzcatz.blogspot.com/2012/06/introducing-bad-note-millstones-of-jazz.html Chet Kincaid

      What has it taken you, 2 years to get up enough guts to comment here?

      • http://news.yahoo.com/fact-check-rich-taxed-less-secretaries-070642868.html NY9 Solyndra

        I was banned (libs are intolerant of dissent) and just yesterday found that the ban had expired.

        The posters here are generally boring and not funny, so there's not much incentive to participate.

        • Generation[redacted]

          Really. Tell us what comment got you banned.

          • http://news.yahoo.com/fact-check-rich-taxed-less-secretaries-070642868.html NY9 Solyndra

            Do you remember all your posts from two years ago, especially those which were deleted?

            Have you noticed that very few conservatives post here? That's because they're banned in short order.

          • Generation[redacted]

            I was banned from redstate for saying tax cuts don't increase revenue. I was banned from the RNC leadership board (though I don't know why they invited me to join in the first place) for saying Ollie North sold weapons to terrorists. So the answer to your question is yes, I do remember what I wrote 2, 4, and even 8 years ago. If it got me banned, I remember it.

            You don't know why you were banned but apparently you don't get banned for using the words libunatic, jerk, goosestep, or oblivion.

            Maybe you should consult a neurologist about your memory problems. Or maybe you get banned from so many boards you simply can't keep track anymore, in which case I suggest you send your most recent posts to your mother and ask her why.

          • http://news.yahoo.com/fact-check-rich-taxed-less-secretaries-070642868.html NY9 Solyndra

            And yet there are virtually no posters here who don't espouse the Wonkette dogma, yet there are plenty of dissidents at the sites you mention.

          • Generation[redacted]

            Yeah, you go talk to redstate the way you talk to us, see how long they let your account stay. I was told in no uncertain terms that their site was only for people who agree with them, and that people who want to espouse opposing views can pay for their own server hosting.

            Anyway your attempt to ascribe negative human behavior to one side of an imaginary political divide says nothing about the veracity of one position over another, but more about you.

          • http://news.yahoo.com/fact-check-rich-taxed-less-secretaries-070642868.html NY9 Solyndra

            I appreciate it you that you openly compare Wonkette to another site that (according to you) is intolerant of dissent. We're getting somewhere.

        • http://loljazzcatz.blogspot.com/2012/06/introducing-bad-note-millstones-of-jazz.html Chet Kincaid

          I call bullshit. Clearly, you know how to create and use several dozen accounts.

          • http://news.yahoo.com/fact-check-rich-taxed-less-secretaries-070642868.html NY9 Solyndra

            "I call bullshit."

            Yes, you typically do espouse a significant amount of that; we agree.

            I've used a couple of accounts which were all banned due to liberal intolerance and disregard for diversity of opinion.

          • http://loljazzcatz.blogspot.com/2012/06/introducing-bad-note-millstones-of-jazz.html Chet Kincaid

            Your helmet made of teabag catchphrases is impenetrable. How does this contribute to an exchange of diverse views?

          • http://news.yahoo.com/fact-check-rich-taxed-less-secretaries-070642868.html NY9 Solyndra

            If you had a gram of integrity, you'd apply the same high standards to posts here and come away incensed by the hypocrisy.

            Libs have infinite patience when the vitriol, hatred, misrepresentation, hatred, and demonization comes from them.

          • http://loljazzcatz.blogspot.com/2012/06/introducing-bad-note-millstones-of-jazz.html Chet Kincaid

            But it's all about you, isn't it? You come here to complain about our intolerance, vitriol, demonization, etc., but your comments always lead with yours. Be the change you want to see on Wonkette, if you want to argue from integrity! If you don't, just go masturbate with your ilk on your conservative boards.

          • http://news.yahoo.com/fact-check-rich-taxed-less-secretaries-070642868.html NY9 Solyndra

            When I first came here, I did indeed attempt to maintain reasonable discourse, but found that Wonkette is not tolerant of ANYTHING or ANYONE that doesn't follow lib dogma.

          • http://loljazzcatz.blogspot.com/2012/06/introducing-bad-note-millstones-of-jazz.html Chet Kincaid

            Perhaps you should hold a mirror to your own comments for signs of being "boring" and "not funny", as you mentioned earlier. These attributes, which you have kindly projected onto us, are the antithesis of commenting on Wonkette, and yet they seem to be your specialty. A much wittier and better-read Troll than you had a long and diverting life here. Have you ever written anything that was even mildly amusing? Show your work.

          • http://news.yahoo.com/fact-check-rich-taxed-less-secretaries-070642868.html NY9 Solyndra

            When I first came to Wonkette, I did indeed just hang out. I received a number of TUs and positive responses. It wasn't until it became clear I wasn't drinking the communist kool-aid that the denizens began their vitriol.

            One of the things I did was to take lib posts here and just swap the names around. Posts that were seen as funny when they were about conservatives were seen as crass and stupid when they were about libs.

            Are you really that oblivious to the double standards in play here?

          • Generation[redacted]

            Are you really oblivious to the fact that the more annoying aspects of human nature don't follow party divides?

          • http://news.yahoo.com/fact-check-rich-taxed-less-secretaries-070642868.html NY9 Solyndra

            Where did I say that? I do appreciate you providing an excellent example of the misrepresentation that is typical here.

          • Generation[redacted]

            You really haven't said anything, other than (paraphrasing) "libs bad, cons good."

          • http://news.yahoo.com/fact-check-rich-taxed-less-secretaries-070642868.html NY9 Solyndra

            I'm sure you apply the same precise criterion to the surfeit of "cons r bad, libs r fab" posts that populate this forum, because you are not a complete hypocrite.

          • Generation[redacted]

            I sure do. Between the snark, wonkette is chock full of esoteric references to literature and political trivia. "Us good, them bad" gets boring very quickly. Like this conversation, for example. Okay, I'll let you have the last word. Go ahead.

          • http://loljazzcatz.blogspot.com/2012/06/introducing-bad-note-millstones-of-jazz.html Chet Kincaid

            You do expend a lot of time and energy proving to yourself, with smug self-satisfaction, that this is a liberal blog, and virtually all of the commenters here are liberal. This is something that most intelligent people could figure out with much less effort. Perhaps you have issues with short and long-term memory, from being kicked in the head by your mule too many times.

            And thank you for running away like a little girl from the challenge of posting something funny. You claim your earlier efforts consisted of simply stealing libtard comments and changing the targets. I am very sorry that you were born with the disability of being unable to crack an original joke. I have written 4 or 5 just in the time I have been having this uninteresting conversation with you!

          • http://news.yahoo.com/fact-check-rich-taxed-less-secretaries-070642868.html NY9 Solyndra

            Ah, because I don't feel like jumping through your hoops, that means I'm smug?

            You're not worth of the effort.

          • http://loljazzcatz.blogspot.com/2012/06/introducing-bad-note-millstones-of-jazz.html Chet Kincaid

            And yet, here you are!

            "teabag catchphrases"

            Maybe you can help me understand why liberal males are obsessed with the concept (and catchphrase) of teabagging.

          • http://loljazzcatz.blogspot.com/2012/06/introducing-bad-note-millstones-of-jazz.html Chet Kincaid

            We are incredulous that conservative males are so clueless that they opened themselves to the joke by naming their movement "The Tea Party" and waving teabags around. It may also be that liberal males see no shame in being homosexual, but see a large degree of shame and hypocrisy in attending the conservative conventions where hatred of homosexuality is codified, while advertising for same-sex assignations at these events on craigslist.

          • http://news.yahoo.com/fact-check-rich-taxed-less-secretaries-070642868.html NY9 Solyndra

            The folks involved in the original Boston Tea Party must have all been gay – thanks for pointing that out.

          • lulzmonger

            Not obsessed enough to name an entire political movement after it though. Does the slogan "Teabag the Dems before the Dems Teabag You" ring any bells?

            Run away from the name but keep wearing the teabags = FAIL.

          • http://news.yahoo.com/fact-check-rich-taxed-less-secretaries-070642868.html NY9 Solyndra

            Ah, the savory bouquet of abject desperation! Thanks for sharing!

            You mean like they did to seniors when they cut the budget for Medicare by $500B to jumpstart Barrycare?

            Yeah, I know, they "cut the provide sider, not the consumer side," and they "eliminated waste and fraud," and "they just reduced the increases" (which were necessary due to increased cost and increased numbers of seniors).

          • http://news.yahoo.com/fact-check-rich-taxed-less-secretaries-070642868.html NY9 Solyndra

            BTW, which is it – is Romney going to cut all health care or is his Massachusetts health care law truly the blueprint for Barrycare? I can't keep up with Dem talking points.

          • Goonemeritus

            The fact that both statements are true says more about the hoops a Republican candidate need jump through than any “Dem. talking point”. Romney has said he would repeal The Affordable Care Act on day one. It is also clear that the act is based on Romney care. In fact Obama and Romney even shared advisors in writing their proposals.

    Kickstarter a threat to the world economic order?? Almost as great as the one posed by pennies dropped in parking lots.

  • http://dismalpseudoscientist.wordpress.com Opportunisticly_Joe

    Turns out Kickstarter is even worse than we thought! According to this article, it is destroying the economy because everyone is following their dreams. Yes, really.

    Which is weird, because if you'll remember, conservatives keep on insisting that every person in the economy should be an entrepeneur, and nobody should be employed by anyone else, (and definitely not the government), and so therefore mass unemployment among the newly graduated isn't the sort of catastrophic thing that will destroy an entire generation's career prospects.

    So now I don't know what to believe, other than that everyone is wrong about everything all the time.
