7. I'd like to segregate the so called progressives that still think fat jokes are funny.

8. Wha????
Edited on Thu Sep-17-09 07:07 PM by PurpleChez
Yeah...and the oxycontin reference is a hateful slur against people with substance abuse issues. And calling him "Limpballs" is grossly insensitive toward people with limp balls. And the "short bus" reference elsewhere in this thread is unbelievably offensive to the developmentally disabled...

Holy crow. You are kidding, right? No...you're not kidding. This is why I don't visit DU much anymore. Seriously--the poster was making fun of Limbaugh, not fat people. Holy shit. Even though I don't feel the same way I can at least see where the people who get pissed off about "Man Coulter" are coming from. But this...good God.... I'm just trying to think what "Blazing Saddles" would look like if you got hold of it.

20. Actually - the pill thing annoys the crap out of me, but I'll tell you why..
..to often people 'assume' that someone (like myself) that has to take it, is abusing it. I suffer from a shit load of discrimination because of the medicine *I* have to take to live each day. "just a junkie", "looking for a doctor feel-good" shit gets old fast. And, while personally never been obese, close family of mine are and they are treated like shit by doctors and the public too. So, while I do see what you are saying. Some things get old. I imagine, if I had a child that had to ride 'the short bus' *that* sort of humour would wear on me too.
Just sayin..
Cheers
Sandy

9. Why is calling someone thin acceptable, but calling someone fat not acceptable?
Edited on Thu Sep-17-09 07:25 PM by begin_within
Both are statements of opinion so what's the difference?

13. This is an outrage!!!
The photo in your post is a grotesque affront to the incontinent! I am going to hold my breath until everyone stops making fun of the incontinent. Here we go....

the train to the future of a more perfect union is leaving the station--and either you're on it or you're left behind. But the train is leaving.

17. (I was being sarcastic.)
I was going off on the post about segretating people who make fat jokes. I didn't really object to your language. So sorry you took offense--none was intended.

19. why would you say that I "took offense"? I merely asked a question.

you indicated that my mention of god was offensive.
your statement that I "took offense" at your comment when
I simply asked "why" might itself be considered offensive.
do you see it?

yes, i saw you "going off". It seems you intend to mock those
who are complaining about "fat jokes", in particular, but your
mocking sarcasm seems to extend beyond that by drawing mocking
comparisons with, for example, invoking a deity.

The problem is this: your "sarcasm" doesn't seem to be "hitting the mark".
It seem more like the "flailing" of a person who can't quite articulate
what he is flailing against.
do you see it?

no?
OK, suppose I walk up to you on the street, and tell you (falsely) that I
saw your mother selling herself on skid row. would you be offended?
first: why or why not? second: what do you do (or not do) about it?
can you explain any of that?

10. You must admit that Rush Limpballs is becoming a bit progressive.
Every day his comments become progressively more bat* shit* crazy than the day before.


* I, of course, apologize to all bats and to their excrement.

11. Political videos should have some title rules.....
If it's a cartoon/spoof then it should be identified assuch. I don't personally like (some do, fine, I don't) these types of videos, so I'm wasting my time clicking into them.

12. But...but...but...
the thumbnail showed a gigantic, distorted head atop a tiny cartoon body. That's a hint and a half....
