Stupid political crap your friends post on facebook. - Page 206

Nope. Some website I'v enever heard of.

The Root is a sister site of Slate that focuses on race-baiting. They've been all over Ramsey the last week, that's probably where it came from.

An example

There is probably a way to turn it off such that you don't see reposts, but I'm not sure. Also, you can block certain people from showing up in your feed at all, which is a god-send. When I found that, I blocked like half the people I know.

Of course, now I guess I miss all these facepalm.gif moments.

I'm aware of someone sharing someone else's post but this is something different. Doesn't happen often but usually it happens in the following manner: I comment on a friends post about a link they shared. Later there will be a post stating "Friend so and so (unrelated to the previous friend) commented on a link" and the post that friend commented on will be related to the story I commented on previously (in this case Charles Ramsey). The friend didn't share the story but just commented on someone else's status update who I do not know.

The person I was debating isn't someone I know; she's a friend of the friend. She posted some long diatribe after my last comment that I'm tempted to counter with pure trolling because it's so idiotic. However, the Facebook friend is a sweet girl who I think was presenting the question in earnest, so I'm reluctant to push too hard, even though she's not a particularly close friend.

Yeah I figured you were responding to a friend of a friend that you didn't know. I was trying to follow her logic but after enough straw grasping on her part, it was apparent that no amount of reasoning was going to alter her thought process of looking for something that is not there. I didn't make it but a few sentences into that long diatribe. My reaction was best depicted in Piccard's "WTF is this shit?" meme.

I checked, it was in my feed as well. With G being my only relation. Thanks for the laughs (facebook).

Yeah, I could only bear to read her last post once. It was like arguing with a first-year womyn's studies textbook. She seems to have all sorts of buzz words she's learned, but she also has very little mastery of what they mean. The best part was earlier in the argument where she countered my statement on ad homs by rattling off a couple of logical fallacies completely out of context. It was almost like she just thought various fallacies were just different terms for the same concept.

Anyhow, I pretty much put it to rest in another post without too much trolling. I just couldn't bear to keep encouraging her to type more and more ridiculousness.

Charles Ramsay is "lower-income"!?! Where did they get this?

That is just a sideways way of saying ghetto, uneducated, etc. apparently.

Not from facebook, but intended as a criticism of Walmart. Really.

That's quite good actually.

Thankfully this is not anyone I know, but:

As sad as it is that six people have died so far and many more have been injured, it's kind of karma for a state that is a republican haven of idiotic god ideals that has campaigned hard against doing anything about global warming, leading us to the shit-storm situation we have ahead of us for a "future"

EDIT: this was about the tornadoes in North Texas last night, if you didn't catch that.

"JERRY FALWELL: And, I know that I'll hear from them for this. But, throwing God out successfully with the help of the federal court system, throwing God out of the public square, out of the schools. The abortionists have got to bear some burden for this because God will not be mocked. And when we destroy 40 million little innocent babies, we make God mad. I really believe that the pagans, and the abortionists, and the feminists, and the gays and the lesbians who are actively trying to make that an alternative lifestyle, the ACLU, People For the American Way - all of them who have tried to secularize America - I point the finger in their face and say "you helped this happen.""
post #3088 of 5454
Exactly. And whoever posted that probably thinks that they are a good person and that Jerry Falwell is a heartless nutcase.
post #3089 of 5454
At least there's an apprehensible cause-and-effect to Falwell's formulation. Abortions -> Angry God -> Tornadoes. I'm still not sure what "idiotic god ideals" is supposed to have to do with tornadoes or global warming.

I think Falwell was talking about 9/11.

I really hate it when people invoke karma this way. First off, karma isn't doesn't even mean "what goes around comes around", but I get it when people use it that way. But this is even farther off. The guy posting that just didn't want to be caught saying what he really meant: those people deserved to die because they probably voted Republican
