      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

First you got thrown down the stairs in the election and now your boy Olbermann is suspended.

Assumptions. The basis of the dumbshitz world view.

 

Brown and Murray were the only races I really cared about.

 

We cockblocked you morons in the senate. Good luck passing anything.

 

Never seen oberman.

 

Good to go. Great week, actually.

And to add to that it may just take another republican / corporate ass-raping of the average redstater for them to get the message that republicans and corporations think they are the chumps who can be counted on when the chips are down. But then again, so far Karl hasn't been going broke betting on the stupidity of the average 'conservative'.

Journalists should not contribute to politicians. Only the owners of media conglomerates should contribute to politicians, obviously.

Moreover, media conglomerates should not contribute to journalists. Only the owners of politicians should contribute to journalists. Wait, wait! Never mind.

Watched Fox again on the treadmill this evening. They're running a fair and balanced 'documentary' on the history of conservatism entitled "The Right, All Along" LOL.

 

Hannity observed that Americans don't want green cars, they want jobs.

 

Apparently the concept of jobs making green cars hadn't occured to him.

 

Then some kook got on demanding immediate, full repeal of Obamacare...and threatening electoral punishment for the newly elected crop of morons if it didn't happen. Apparently an arithmetically, and politically, challenged individual. LULZ.

 

Then Rick Santorum (Yes!) got on as a pundit...and said in a somber tone that repeal would be......unlikely, and that punishment should not be levied on those who try rully, rully hard anyway.

 

Oh...and apparently the Teabaggers are blaming Rush for losing the senate!

 

No Palin, but holy shit, still a great line up tonight. Its the only reality show I watch, but I can see why the genre is so popular. Its the manga of news programs. Even at your max heart rate you don't miss a thing...no cognitive function required.

Yeah, but she admitted that she was liberal. That means what she says has no validity, correct? Quit picking on Faux News!!!

My only response to the firing of Olberman, one of only two cash cows at MSNBC, is that somebody in executive management probably needs to be fired, and perhaps shot. What a dumb-as-fuck business decision over a minor contract clause.

Who decided the best way to meet the challenge laid down by biased corporate right-wing media populated by smug blowhard commentators was to create a biased corporate liberal media populated by smug blowhard commentators? Democrats, pffft.

Olberman's, apparently. He started the whole MSNBC thing.

Prospero, you are the master of illusion.

Lying is your trademark.

And you have lied so much to me

(lied about the world, lied about me)

that you have ended by imposing on me

an image of myself.

underdeveloped, you brand me, inferior,

That ís the way you have forced me to see myself

I detest that image! What's more, it's a lie!

But now I know you, you old cancer,

and I know myself as well.

Whackmole? Wouldn't that be the name of our CIA led program of drone attacks against the insurgents?

No. Obama and the Democrats are pursuing the same gameplan initiated during the Bush Administration but have expanded it to include Pakistan and Yemen. Knock one down, twenty more spring back up. But that's the nature of the game isn't it?

Actually, the number of drone strikes has gone way up under Obama. Way up. It's the only part of a hugely failed series of wars that is actually producing 'results'...of course those results include killing a whole lot of innocent people, but hey, fuck it, they're not American so who gives a rip?

Every windmill built and every electric car brought out of production and into the market is one step further away from the insanity of the Middle East. But it only seems that the resource wars will shift to other areas.

predator drones are damn near the only thing we MAKE anymore, so at least they're helping keep the economy afloat, eh? :)
