Let's pretend we're rightwingers talking about American History
In 1776, our Founding Fathers, who were persecuted by the Communists because of their strong Christian beliefs, met at church and signed our Constitution which forever granted Americans the right to carry guns and declared America, now and forever, a Christian nation.
None of the founding fathers believed in Darwinism, followed Reverend Wright, or deigned to appear on Bill Maher.
They did not support equal pay for women.
Sadly OP that's about right.
Somehow I think that if Darwinism had existed in that time they would no problems accepting it R2/3. The were men of science after all.
They built our great nation with slaves an Jesus and no big government and Christian values and such as.
The Founding Fathers put the words "Under God" in our Pledge of Allegiance and that's where its going to stay.
(no joke, I've heard wingnuts actually say that)
They are such idiots R6.
Our founding fathers were all very religious men.
Our founding fathers worked tirelessly to end slavery. (actual michelle bachman quote)
Inspired by Jesus, who believed there would only be one nation worth shit on the planet, inspired our founding fathers to know that homosexuals would try take over in the future.
That's why they wrote the Bill Of Rights. There is nothing about Hispanics or Gays in there. Nothing.
There was only one religion when we were a colony. Things were simple and that's why now things are fucked up with all kinds of religions. The founding fathers knew that only one religion should be in control.
The founding fathers were all WHITE which means only white men should have Constitutional rights.
I mean, giving blacks and women the vote? Please. Dumbest. Move. Ever.
Only advantage of giving women the vote: it doubles the votes of our great white Republican men, since we tell their women who to vote for and the women obey, as they should.
On Paul Revere:
"He who warned, uh, the British that they weren’t gonna be takin’ away our arms, uh, by ringing those bells, and um, makin' sure as he’s riding his horse through town to send those warning shots and bells that we were going to be sure and we were going to be free, and we were going to be armed."
Oh no, wait... these were supposed to be made up? BRB.
Deism? What is that? It's a left-wing conspiracy. You know. Those liberals all think they can trick us into believing that Jefferson was a deist. And even though Thomas Paine proclaimed that he was a deist, he really wasn't. Oh no. He was a Christian! Just like all of our Founding Fathers were!
If God had wanted us to respect homosexuals he would have put that in the Constitution!
The colored people never even wanted freedom! It was forced on them by liberals!
If Obama had been in charge, Mary the Mother of Jesus would have been forced to abort!
Because of Obamacare, ALL of out good doctors are moving to other countries!
The Founding Fathers were the elite in wealth, because God gave them the most brains. The top tier should continue to make decisions for everyone else, with their preachers' guidance and prayers.
It was the DEMOCRATS who who owned slaves in the South! Lincoln, a REPUBLICAN, freed the slaves from the shackles of the DEMOCRATS. I've been telling you for years that DEMOCRATS are RACISTS!!!!!!1
My pussy stinks.
A wig? How dare u insuneate that MY foundin father dressed all gay and crap. He loved Jesus and he was good a man. He taut his son to shot a rifle, to read the BIBLE, and he gave us the blacks so that WE all could have a decent life. The woman played there role and they liked it. Life was the way life was. And dammit we need to get it back.
Open your damn Bible! If English was good enough for Jesus Christ, it is damn well good enough for you lazy Hispaniards.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
