“A Lesson in Capitalism”

Comedian Rush Limbaugh thinks that selling test grades, as recently proposed by some parents in North Carolina to raise money for their school district, was “a bold innovative approach” with “visionary promise” for the education system.

That the parents’ previous fundraising effort had failed miserably was also “lesson in capitalism” — when the legitimate sale of goods fails, turn to venal corruption instead and re-brand it as “innovation”…

  1. I think you’ve got to be right about the comedian bit. Limbaugh must really be a character played by some actor. There really can’t be any other explanation I can think of. Other than the world really is coming to an end in 2012.

  2. Unfortunately, there are millions of “dittoheads” who actually regard him seriously and take their cues from his ridiculous bloviations.

    You know it’s the end of civilization when the 3 ‘R’s are being replaced by corruption and capitalist greed.

  5. His followers don’t evenr realize he’s duping them. He’ll say anything to get attention – that’s what makes him rich. If he was bland – no followers, no money.

    He uses their stupidity.

  6. Guzzeuntite

    What a bunch of clueless ‘bots you all are. People who listen Limbaugh get his humor just fine. They know when he is kidding and when he isn’t.

    It is you idiots who can’t tell the difference.

  7. Yeah, he was a big hit on that hilarious Fox News show that tried to emulate the Daily Show. What a laugh riot.

    Conservative humour… an oxymoron.

    You — just a moron.

  8. Guzzeuntite

    Conservative humour… an oxymoron.

    You — just a moron.

    Har!

    You watch too much TV, RT. (CLEARLY!)

    I blame it for your utter lack of a funny bone.

  9. sapphireandsteel

    Gezzentite is more a catamite than moron.

  10. Guzzeuntite

    Ti-Guy and you.

    One is disturbed and projecting misogynist; the other a disturbed and projecting homophobe.

    The Left ees so foony.

  11. sapphireandsteel

    hmm, seems like someone’s projecting themselves again. What’s next Guzz? Are you going to start boasting about weightlifting next?

  12. Guzzeuntite

    And I do believe RT has called me an “Islamophobe.”

    Now, given the picture of the Jesus with superimposed the strike-out over Him with the link to http://outcampaign.org/ (down and to the right of his web page), that would make him Christianophobe (or something).

    Of course, I truly believe it is he who fears Islam, given his inclination to disparage any religion but the most very violent one: fundmentalist Islam.

    Brave, brave Sir Red.

  13. sapphireandsteel

    So Guzz, do you wank in front of your friends and family like this or is just a fetish you have to do it in front of strangers?

  14. Guzzeuntite

    “hmm, seems like someone’s projecting themselves again. What’s next Guzz? Are you going to start boasting about weightlifting next?”

    Huh? I think you are a tad confused Saphic. You are the one making disparaging accusations concerning my sexuality. I was merely diagnosing your obvious mental infirmity.

    You’re welcome.

  15. sapphireandsteel

    sure Guzz, keep wanking

  16. Guzzeuntite

    More projecting from the left, you freakin’ onanophobe.

  17. Guzzeuntite

    “So Guzz, do you wank in front of your friends and family like this or is just a fetish you have to do it in front of strangers?”

    You are disturbingly familiar with this perversion, Saphic.

  18. sapphireandsteel

    Am I? Well if that’s true then you’d only know from watching.

    So what are you up to you pervy little troll?

  19. Guzzeuntite

    Are you trying to engage in a little cyber-sex, Saphic?

  20. sapphireandsteel

    I believe when you do it it’s called cyber-masturbation. You seem to be a pro at it.

  21. Guzzeuntite

    Well, I guess you’d know best what it’s called, but I think you are a pitiful and disgusting little sicko, and we are all embarrassed for you.

  22. sapphireandsteel

    What? You have a group of people that you go and watch others? You are a pervy little voyeur arent you?

  23. sapphireandsteel

    Do you often speak in the third person Pervatite?

  24. Guzzeuntite

    Shit! You’re a ‘bot! You’re just repeating everything I say.

    How foolish of me not realize it sooner. First I call you a homophobe who projects. Then you do the same in a slighlty different way. Next I accuse you of trying to get me to engage in cyber-sex with you … and then you accuse me of the same thing … in a slighlty different way.

    Amazing. Let me try something: Saphic you are a dum-dum.

  25. Guzzeuntite

    “Do you often speak in the third person Pervatite?”

    Third person? Explain. I think you are a confused ‘bot.

  26. sapphireandsteel

    Shit I’m a bot. Ooh internet threats from an old man. Did you learn about bots at Conservative HQ Internet training Pervatite?

  27. Ti-Guy

    Third person? Explain. I think you are a confused ‘bot.

    After years of trolling, he’s still using the same material.

  28. sapphireandsteel

    Its all what he gets from his Conservative mailing list.

  29. Guzzeuntite

    “Ooh internet threats from an old man.”

    Threats? You mean the one where I threatened to taunt you some more? Canadian pig!

  30. Ti-Guy

    Its all what he gets from his Conservative mailing list.

    In addition to the ads for male escorts and numbers for the local meth dealers.

  31. sapphireandsteel

    meth dealers nothing, Pervatite probably has a portable lab in the trunk of his crackwagon.

  32. sapphireandsteel

    I love when someone calls me a Canadian pig. It only reminds me that Ive gotten under their thin greasy skin.

    Thanks Pervatite?

  33. Guzzeuntite

    “After years of trolling, he’s still using the same material.”

    We all can’t keep up with your simply amazing ability to come up with freash material all the time, Ti-Guy.

    Like “pyscho.”

    Or … sometimes … “Pyscho.”

    Or … other times … “Pyscho!”

    Or in your really original moments: “Fuck off, pyscho.”

  34. Guzzeuntite

    ” love when someone calls me a Canadian pig. It only reminds me that Ive gotten under their thin greasy skin.”

    Oh, nevermind. Ever watch a movie, dimwit?

  35. sapphireandsteel

    You mean those flickery things that they show on screens? Why yes. Are you going to do your Ned Beatty impersonation for us?

  36. sapphireandsteel

    wow that’s some awesome American spelling you’ve got there Pervatite

  37. Guzzeuntite

    A thousand pardons. Never mind.

    Now: Ever watch a movie, Saphic?

  38. Ti-Guy

    We all can’t keep up with your simply amazing ability to come up with freash material all the time, Ti-Guy.

    I’m not the one who’s an obsessive troll and/or afflicted with borderline personality disorder.

  39. sapphireandsteel

    Ive watched many movies Perv. Which one do you want to know about?

  40. sapphireandsteel

    Its funny that you accuse me of homophobia yet you call me sapphic. Afraid of lesbians much Perv?

  41. Guzzeuntite

    Saphic, your problem is that you think you are smarter and more witty than you really are. “Pervatite” is lame (is this supposed to be a combination of “pervert” and “catamite”? As I said, lame.). You seem unable to do anything but copy what I say in a slightly different way. You aren’t funny. Your insults make little sense (“greasy skin”?). You are ignorant of the most popular of popular culture. You are obsessed witht he sexual activities of others to a disturbing degree. You stupidly try to correct spelling of others, when you can do no better (“Ive”?) and your punctuation is awful (this tends to reduce the impact of your insults). You. Are. Lame.

  42. sapphireandsteel

    so I have poor punctuation and you have poor spelling Perv. Big deal.

    How am I ignorant of the most popular of popular culture. You haven’t asked me anything except whether I’ve watched a movie. I said I have and said to pick a movie to discuss. The humour of it all for me is that you dont have a clue what I do for a living these days.

    Obviously I got under your skin because you reacted as such. My work is done.

  43. Guzzeuntite

    “Its funny that you accuse me of homophobia yet you call me sapphic. Afraid of lesbians much Perv?”

    Saphic (sic) is a play on your name that I used in response to your homophobia. “Catamite” — at least in the English language — is not a play on my name. Saphic is kinda funny when used against a homophobe, in other words, knucklehead.

    You: not so funny.

  44. sapphireandsteel

    What would be some examples of “the most popular of popular culture” be in your opinion?

    Your pretentiousness cracks me up btw Perv.

  45. Guzzeuntite

    “so I have poor punctuation and you have poor spelling Perv. Big deal.”

    I agree. At least we have that in common.

  46. Guzzeuntite

    “Obviously I got under your skin because you reacted as such.”

    This does not make sense.

    And I don’t care what you do for a living.

  47. sapphireandsteel

    Too bad, cause the “have you ever seen a movie” bit is hilarious.

    So stupid and pretentious Perv.

    Sorry I can’t help you with your comprehension Perv. Obviously you are a failure of the American education system.

  48. Guzzeuntite

    “Too bad, cause the “have you ever seen a movie” bit is hilarious.”

    I see you’re dying to tell me. And you accuse me of being an exhibitionist?

    Sorry. I just don’t care. But I will say this: You’re overpaid.

    “Obviously you are a failure of the American education system.”

    Wow! That’s Ti-Guy original!.

  49. sapphireandsteel

    So about that list of “the most popular of popular culture”…

  50. sapphireandsteel

    Yeah I’m overpaid and you’re jealous.

    Funny part is every day your dollar collapses I make a little bit more. Yay for the Euro.

  51. Guzzeuntite

    By the way, apparently only the Canadian educational system teaches that “Obviously [sic] I got under your skin [sic] because you reacted as such [sic]” is good English.

  52. sapphireandsteel

    well at least I learned how to spell psycho correctly Perv…

  53. Ti-Guy

    Obviously you are a failure of the American education system.

    I dispute that. I’d call the catamite here a rare success of that system.

    And isn’t that something?

  54. Guzzeuntite

    “Yeah I’m overpaid and you’re jealous.”

    No. Just incredulous that you’re paid at all.

    By the way, don’t brag about the size of your pay check when you have exactly zero idea of the size of the pay check of the person to whom you are bragging is.

  55. sapphireandsteel

    okay Perv, though Im sure your social security cheque is HUGE!

  56. Guzzeuntite

    “well at least I learned how to spell psycho correctly Perv”

    Good for you! Me too, o unintelligible one.

  57. sapphireandsteel

    Wait, you probably get food stamps. Look! I put all of the punctuation in for you. Would you like me to use American spelling in the future so you can understand it?

  58. sapphireandsteel

    No problem there Perv. If I was you I’d consider leaving the spell check on full time. Never know when you’ll encounter a word with more than six letters.

  59. Guzzeuntite

    “okay Perv, though Im sure your social security cheque is HUGE!”

    1) At least you’re off the “pervite” silliness.
    2) Your ageism is showing, in addition to your homophobia.

    What? Is? Wrong? With? The? Left?

  60. Ti-Guy

    Wait, you probably get food stamps.

    And government cheese. That’s my favourite part of the American social safety net.

    No wonder they hate the government down there.

  61. sapphireandsteel

    What about that list of the “most popular of popular culture” Perv? You haven’t really provided any proof of your accusations.

    Though its rather funny that a righttard like yourself hides behind the skirt of political correctness.

    So much for free speech eh Perv?

  62. sapphireandsteel

    Government cheese, now that’s funny.

  63. Guzzeuntite

    By the way, Saphic, care to show me where is misspelled “psycho”? ‘Cause at 4:12, I spelled it right 4 times.

  64. Guzzeuntite

    “Government cheese, now that’s funny.”

    Not really, knucklehead, but it could be racist.

  65. sapphireandsteel

    “Like “pyscho.”

    Or … sometimes … “Pyscho.”

    Or … other times … “Pyscho!”

    Or in your really original moments: “Fuck off, pyscho.””

    Do you mean those spellings at 4:12 genius?

  66. sapphireandsteel

    Wow Perv, you’ve taken to political correctness like a fish to water.

  67. Guzzeuntite

    “[Y]ou probably get food stamps.”

    And that is classist, elitist, and also borderline racist.

    And you still have no idea how much I make. So, you are also a big time fool.

  68. Guzzeuntite

    “Wow Perv, you’ve taken to political correctness like a fish to water.”

    Indeed. But for you to say that means that I have been far, far to subtle for you, because you completely missed the point.

  69. sapphireandsteel

    Classist, elitist and apparently borderline racist. Who knew cheese was racist?

    Now Perv, do you have any proof of your accusations? No you don’t.

    I, however, got to hand you your ass in a basket over your spelling of psycho.

  70. Ti-Guy

    Government cheese, now that’s funny.

    A little research just now lets me know that that programme ended in the ’90’s.

    I wonder what it was replaced with?

  71. sapphireandsteel

    Shh, talking disparagingly about cheese is considered racist by some Americans..

  72. Guzzeuntite

    “I, however, got to hand you your ass in a basket over your spelling of psycho.”

    Yes, you do. So, do it.

    Re your sins against political correctness: Da proof is in da words you use.

  73. Guzzeuntite

    “I wonder what it was replaced with?”

    Cheez whiz.

    “A little research just now lets me know that that programme ended in the ’90’s.”

    You need to get a life.

  74. sapphireandsteel

    “Re your sins against political correctness: Da proof is in da words you use.”

    Ha ha my sins. Perv actually thinks his worldview is some sort of moral and ethical bar.

  75. Guzzeuntite

    Re my spelling of psycho. You’re right.

    I’m dyslectic, apparently.

    I looked at it 3 times and didn’t notice.

  76. Guzzeuntite

    “Ha ha my sins. Perv actually thinks his worldview is some sort of moral and ethical bar.”

    God, you’re an idiot.

  77. sapphireandsteel

    Sure, if it annoys you then I’m an idiot.

  78. sapphireandsteel

    dyslectic = dyslexic

  79. sapphireandsteel

    We haven’t even discussed your bigotry towards lesbians yet Perv.

  80. Guzzeuntite

    “dyslectic = dyslexic”

    *shakes head*

    Never mind.

  81. sapphireandsteel

    what about your bigotry towards lesbians? Seems like you are also a homophobe so to speak.

  82. sapphireandsteel

    Also an elitist and classist considering how you hold your views above others.

    I won’t call you a racist because of your views of government cheese.

  83. Guzzeuntite

    “Sure, if it annoys you then I’m an idiot.”

    That’s not really the way it works. You seem confused as to (1) what my “worldview” is and (2) whether “sin” has any definition that is morally neutral.

    And just to help you out with “dyslectic,” there is this: http://www.thefreedictionary.com/dyslectic

    Try a dictionary once in a while.

    You are welcome.

  84. Guzzeuntite

    “Also an elitist and classist considering how you hold your views above others.”

    No. Only above yours.

    “I won’t call you a racist because of your views of government cheese.”

    Ah … good, I guess.

  85. sapphireandsteel

    dyslectic – having impaired ability to comprehend written words usually associated with a neurologic disorder

    Yeah that’s definitely you. My apologies.

  86. Guzzeuntite

    “[W]hat about your bigotry towards lesbians? Seems like you are also a homophobe so to speak.”

    Only if I thought you might be a lesbian, Saphic.

    Sadly, I don’t. I happen to think you might be a thespian, though. As you can see with sapphire/saphic and lesbian/thespian, I am a punnist.

  87. Guzzeuntite

    “Yeah that’s definitely you. My apologies.”

    Har!

    You are an able-ist too.

  88. sapphireandsteel

    I never thought you had a gender preference Perv. To be honest I’m not all that sure you have a gender.

    I guess that makes me no longer a homophobe. You’re system really works!

  89. Guzzeuntite

    I have no idea what you’re talking about.

  90. sapphireandsteel

    That’s fine. At least we’re clear on it all.

  91. Guzzeuntite

    That’s your problem, though: Clarity. This is English but its meaning is not clear: “I never thought you had a gender preference Perv. To be honest I’m not all that sure you have a gender.”

    Try explaining it again.

  92. Guzzeuntite

    Or is it just more meaningless, shit-on-the-wall, pro forma insults?

  93. sapphireandsteel

    Man Perv, what about some examples of the “most popular of popular culture”?

  94. sapphireandsteel

    Or maybe some movie talk as promised earlier. Let’s talk about film…
