RAPID REACTIONS FROM A “DAY OF DECISION” 

Welcome to FITS’ 2012 election night live blog … instant news, insight and analysis from a day we’ve all been waiting for (or waiting to end).

For those of you new to this website, we’re hilarious and provocative … so expect to be offended.  We’re also hard core fiscal conservatives and social libertarians.  That’s why we endorsed U.S. Rep. Ron Paul in this year’s GOP primary race, and why we endorsed former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson in this year’s general election.

As for our 2012 prediction, our crystal ball foresaw a narrow victory for “Republican” presidential nominee Mitt Romney … not that it really matters in our humble estimation, though, as both candidates are terrible on fiscal issues.

Were we right? (No). And what about the various races (such as they were) in our home State of South Carolina?

To the blog!

House still belongs to the Repubs so NoBama ain’t spending any more of our money on his socialist bullshit. It looks like the Senate will be roughly status quo to the Dems so we’ll go another 4 years without a budget as we spend ourselves into oblivion.

Unfortunately, if he wins, NoBama can spend all of his political capital (and some of our real capital) the next four years whipping up the teat suckers to support Democrat candidates and take the house back at the mid terms – what an unmitigated disaster that would be.

You lefty libtards are quickly becoming exactly what you say you hate about BigT.

You are also becoming cheap gloaters and “spike the ball in the endzone” azzholes.

Telling him to leave the country? GAH. That’s schoolyard stuff. Get over yourselves.

None of you have the vision to see just how badly things could begin to go in this country in the next four years.

You think more hope and change is coming.

It isn’t.

It’s not going to be pretty with an extreme leftist at the helm in a teetering economy. Watch the stock market tomorrow and in the coming weeks.

And be ready for your taxes to go up. Be ready for that utopian dream of the “affordable care act” to begin to creep into your wallet.

Celebrate tonight.

Tomorrow and the next four years; not so much.

BigT, I know you won’t let these libtards get to you. You are solid and confident in your beliefs as am I. We who carry the conservative banner have been proven right many, many times, and the fact that about half of the country disagrees does NOT make conservatism wrong.

We will be proven to be correct, as always.

Here’s a clue for you since you’re too stupid and lazy to do even a simple Google search to defend your challenge. You probably won’t even have to Google it because most people wouldn’t. Answer this.

What is meant by “An Eye for an Eye and a Tooth for a Tooth?”

Reply
Ken E. November 11, 2012 at 12:28 am

Eye for an eye involves causing the same harm to a person that they have done to another, whether in the original sense of actually taking the eye or tooth, or in the sense you probably mean by hurting another emotionally with words. However, I doubt neither Smirks nor BigT were injured in any way in this case, physically or emotionally. The use of eye for an eye DOES NOT APPLY.

Now, going back to Smirks original statement:
Jackson McPhee, ever heard of the Golden Rule? Big(o)T is being treated exactly how he treats FITSNews commenters.

So the most common definition of the Golden Rule is: Treat others as you wish to be treated. And you see how Smirks uses the words “treated” and “treats” in his statement? THAT’S EXACTLY WHAT HE MEANT!!! The Golden Rule, not Eye for an Eye…, you moron.

Reply
Jackson McPhee November 11, 2012 at 1:55 am

Wow. You gave it such a valiant attempt, but still missed the mark by a mile.

“Eye for an eye” means giving back “in kind” and nothing more… which is exactly what the BigT haters here are doing.

“The Golden Rule,” does mean treat others as you wish to be treated… more specifically “do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” Christ said that and it was meant to specifically to supercede “eye for an eye.” “Turn the other cheek” follows.

You probably shouldn’t attempt to speak for Smirks and all the BigT haters, but do you assume all of them wish to be treated with hate?

See? You failed, but the upside is that you learned something.

Reply
Ken E. November 11, 2012 at 7:09 am

You’re still wrong. Eye for an eye implies injury or harm in kind. No harm done here. What the hell does Christ have to do with your argument? The concept predates Christianity.

Reply
Jackson McPhee November 11, 2012 at 10:30 pm

No, you’re wrong. “Eye for an eye” means giving back “in kind” and NOTHING more… which is exactly what the BigT haters here were doing, demonstrated perfectly by Smirks saying, “Big(o)T is being treated exactly how he treats FITSNews commenters.”

The Golden Rule is NOT treating people the way they treated you.

Sometimes when you are leading a parade, it is a good idea to look back and see if anyone is following you. I can understand why you were opposed to some incumbents in the Senate, but Wes Hayes and Larry Martin are two of the best Senators we have. I was a registered lobbyist for many years for a business league and our association and the business coalitions with which we affiliated considered these men to be conservative, responsible and totally reasonable. I enjoy your blog and often agree with points you raise, but targeting Martin and Hayes made no sense to me at all.

Settle down people. You have got Obama in the White Hose for 4 more years. You also have a GOP controlled House. Gridlock! The only time the GOP is worth a shit is when the other party holds the presidency. (Examples: 1994 GOP congress with Bill Clinton as President.) Anyone here who thinks we are better off now, or in 2008, than we were in 1998 is a damned fool.

Now the only thing that Obama did different from just continuing Dubya’s policies was Obamacare. Lest you believe that National Healthcare/ Socialised Medicine/whatever you want to call it, is something dreamed up by Obama and his commie mentors…the idea has been being pushed on America by Democrats and “progressives” since Roosevelt. That’s TEDDY Roosevelt, beetchez!

Bbbbbut, Romney and the GOP were going to repeal Obamacare if they got in power, right?

Yeah, believe that, playa!

Not withstanding the ugly fact that Obamacare is based on …ROMNEYcare; the GOP also promised to repeal the New Deal and the Great Society. I haven’t really kept up of late, so maybe BigT or some of you other GOP stalwarts can let me know how thats going.
