Government 2.0: Digital Boogaloo

LanglyLangly Registered User regular
Hi guys, we don't have a working government at the moment. It's kind of a big deal! People are talking about it and stuff.

You can go here to get a summary of what's going on and how things have changed since the initial shutdown.

Basically this is what the US looks like right now

    I don't think we need to pile on. It's good to talk about shit. There are a lot of people who have some honest misunderstandings about some pretty complicated stuff. So we can either talk to them or ignore them, and they may or may not decide to change their mind based on the new information. That's how I feel about it.

    Nah, he's alright.

    If he's trolling, he's refined it to such a degree that I can appreciate it.

    If he's not and he truly believes everything he posts, then whatever, people are allowed to have wrong opinions on stuff and I don't let it upset me.

    I wish I had the time to respond to every individual post, which come at a rate of about 10-15 posts for every post I make, but I do actually have a job to do


    However, I hope you are all sitting down for this. YoSoWalrus is right, I made a bad, bad misreading of the corporate mandate and I was wrong about it. He is right, uncovered corporate workers will be required to use the exchanges

    If the GOP's private transcript is to only block the CR to halt Obamacare on the basis of the individual mandate, then that is wrong, however I don't think that's the real goal of GOP leadership

    No no no i am not calling for a dogpile I am saying this is a person who has never participated in discussion in full good faith that I can see

    and like I actively watch people get frustrated interacting with him

    While the deflection or selective responses is true, that's no reason to attack the person or call him a troll. On places like Fark or CNN comment sections you get people who don't believe what they are talking about and just post talking points as part of their job, that's certainly not where Jasc is in the greater scheme of things if his post history and responses in the thread are any indication.

    I don't agree with the guy, I think he does mind-bending doubletink at times to support his points, but all in all I'd still buy a round for him. Like all of you here, we're pretty decent folk.

    Except for Crwth and his chimney-pooping ways.

    those are not what I was referring to

    you actively say things that do not jive with reality and when presented with evidence that this is the case, you ignore the post and move on to another one that has less support at the moment

    I am not referring to the murderers comments

    maybe if I feel like putting my back into it I'll go grab the posts im talking about to show you.

    I am calling him an internet troll not a troll of a person

    I don't think he's a bad person

    I wonder why you guys pay as much attention to him as you do for as long as you do when it is clear there is no communication

    I never read a Jasc post and think anything is different than the last time I read a Jasc post

    I'm not saying flame him and yell and dogpile I don't know where you're getting that from

    I am saying in my observations, prolonged interaction with him is futile and a waste of time

    So apparently tea party truckers might stage a protest on the Beltway, somehow to get the government to do its job? Even though near as I can tell it's their counterparts in the House who caused the shutdown in the first place? I am baffled by this and if these morons actually screw up my commute this weekend I'm going to flip out.

    Whoo still can't get my unemployment claim through. Probably have to defer my student loan payments again.

    The worst part is, even if they somehow manage to get shit up and running today, the way my job works means I probably won't have anything to do till November anyway.

    But I also think you know exactly what I'm talking about

    If you're talking about the use of the debt limit as a weapon then I don't know what else to tell you. The GOP has a right to do that. They were elected. The house has been empowered with that ability. It's that way for a reason. They take major political risks by doing it. There've been 17 shutdowns, only 2 at the hands of a Republican speaker, so they hardly invented it. That it has only happened twice since 95 has more to do with political coincidence than anything.

    What I'd appreciate is a little more debate substance than a careful mixture of "well they only have the house because of gerrymandering" and "it's a law so they should just roll over"

    yes, the GOP should do exactly nothing because you don't like them, sorry dawg, I'm not eager to debate you on those terms

    Also it is important to remember that when reading these posts of kine I am not upset

    I just do not believe Jasc participates in these discussions in earnest

    Which isn't to say that I do

    I am just saying rather than get frustrated with the guy
