Fun thread: Who is the next pope?

This is kind of a game. Pretend you are the Vatican. Who is the 257th pope? Make it anybody famous who you want? He/she don't have to be Catholic either.

Apparently, Clinton gets too much credit for good economy of 1990s


Funny isn't it how Republicans deny the truth. He was in office when the longest period of peacetime, post-war economic expansion in HISTORY occurred. Keep on dreaming braindead Re-pubes.

Biased magazine

From an antiaque shop on Sunday, I bought the May 5, 1980 issue of TIME, which talks about the failed Operation Eagle Claw http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Eagle_Claw
Now, reading through it, all the journalists in the magazine were mentioning Carter's "failed and pathetic presidency" so I've come to the conclusion that this TIME magazine was biased.

Favorite one-term president

Who is your favorite one-term president? I would say JFK, but being that he never finished his term, I'd have to say Carter.

Old, but interesting news. John Tyler has garandchildren: ALIVE!


The grandsons of John Tyler—born in 1790, who took office as America’s 10th president in 1841, and died in 1862 before the end of the Civil War—are still kickin’...So how is it that two grandsons were born almost 140 years after their grandfather? Two successive generations of men who fathered children at advanced ages—even by today’s standards—with much younger wives.

I always thought this was just cool

I found a biased wiki called Conservapedia


Read this

IMDb post: "Conservatives are the intelligent people, not libtards!"


This guy is trying to sound smart by saying that Republicans are smart and Democrats are stupid. Sorry Reagan_Revolution, it's the other way around.

Thom Hartman hates Ronald Reagan

Watch this. It is funny:

Also, read this:

Republicans: Why Won't They Admit That George W. Bush Was A Horrible President?

Things Bush did:
1. Put us in the worst recession since the 1930s.
2. Didn't seem to act like he really cared about 9/11 (Just kept on reading that damn book)
3. Waited until the last minute to do something about Hurricane Katrina (but Repubs are pissed that Gov. Christie said good things about Obama and Superstorm Sandy)
4. Violated the Geneva accords and waterboarded prisoners
5. Created the PATRIOT Act which lets the government listen in on our conversations and watch waht we're doing on the internet right now
6. Lied about Saddam Hussein's "nuclear weapons" (Bush knew that there were no WMDs in Iraq, he was just pissed at Saddam for attempting to assassinate his "daddy" ten years earlier
7. Killed 100,000 innocent people that wouldn't have been killed if it wasn't for Bush's bullshit
8. Abu Ghraib anyone?
9. Used 9/11 as a political tool for winning re-election (that sick bastard)
10. Bush is a DUMBASS (Bushisms, anyone?)

And OBAMA IS A BAD PRESIDENT? Obama wants everyone to have affordable health care, banned prisoner abuse, is smart, has been successful in fixing our economy, killed Osama bin Laden, raised taxes on rich, actually cares about other people, is for same-sex marriage, ended the war in Iraq, and is ending the war in Afghanistan and he is a BAD PRESIDENT? Fuck you, REPUBS! YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT THE FUCK YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT!
