The point of this thread is that Marcus Bachmann wants the donkey punch.  Please work on your reading comprehension.

I thought the point of the thread was that Bachmann's husband is a homo.  Why are you flip-flopping?  What are you trying to hide?

Marcus is Bachmann's husband, unless Michelle changed her name.  Please reference my second sentence.

A husband and wife shouldn't be allowed to have names that start with the same letter.  Very confusing.  We should work on a constitutional amendment for that.

Oh, bullshit.  Not everything has to be political. Not everybody has to "OMG IMA GONNA MAKE ME A STATEMENT BY GOD!" all the time.  Just fucking suck it up and do it.  By making this political, Thomas is making this something it's not; kind of like how you are as well.   

Here's another example, and I'm going to use the IFC comedy "Todd Margaret" as an example.  In one episode, Todd Margaret, an American transplaned in the UK, is filmed on British televison during a Remembrance Day ceremony pouring a can of an energy drink on the ground.  Unfortunately, because of the camera angle, it looks like he's pissing on a Remembrance Day monument.  Immediately, he becomes the most reviled man in Britian.

Now, let's change that up a bit.  Let's say Todd Margaret really hated wars and, in turn, hates veterans.  Let's say, in an attempt to express his contempt, he really did piss on the Remembrance Day monument.  By your example, that's a perfectly acceptable way to express your displeasure, right?  Because, after all, the veterans didn't "earn" his respect; after all, they're really just hired killers.  So why not piss on this monument?  Because it's a douche move, that's why.

Hate to break it to you, but like it or not, society and peer pressure dictate a lot of what is acceptable and what isn't acceptable.  Thomas isn't making a statement; he's just being a douche.


What an atrocious example.  There are actual laws involving decensy and desecration that usually prevent public urination period, and urination on certain monuments in particular.  Not sure how types of vandalism or destruction of property is similar at all.  That's like saying that if you don't respect your neighbor you can smash his windows in.  Well clearly you can't, you shouldn't, and no one would debate that.  But if you don't respect your neighbor, you don't have to say good morning to him and no one would think twice about it.  Now you're just getting ridiculous.

Eh, maybe.  I don't know.  I don't really care.  I just felt like typing a bit today.

Kinda bored now, tho.

Do we have an update on the cred point standings?  Because even though you might've bested me this time, Mr. Smartest Guy in the Room, I am still far and away your superior.

Yeah, that right.  Eat it, New Yorker.

Exactly

If it was a violation of his contract, then it would be a douche move, but its not in his contract that he MUST APPEAR before the almighty President of the United States because they won the Stanley Cup.

I guess I am a douche because I refused to attend an Obama fundraiser that the wife was invited to when he was last in Chicago, and so was she for not going.

And here is one for you DFG, am I supposed to show respect for a drunk driver who saved a couple's life after he was released from prison even though he still has yet to pay for the damages he caused to my family?  He is a hero and all, does he deserve my respect for that?

Seriously I need to know what the acceptable standards are nowadays for respect, so that I can teach my kids the proper ways to show respect, since the way I was raised no longer applies it seems

I'm trying to read your post, but all's I'm seeing is "asdl;khasdl;ghasepioseradlsjfasdlk"....

Again, please refer to the post where I said I was bored now.  Collect your cred points at the door.

Truth is...it's much more impressive for the players to meet Stephen Harper than Obama.

I assume the same as lobo, but that was pretty stupid of Hodge to insinuate that. Hodge is known though, for having very dry and sarcastic humour.

I don't even know who Hodge is, but even I can tell he's goofing around.
