I have a flash message for YOU my friend. IF Fascism ever comes to America it will be Authoritarian Republicans that bring it. just look at the laws these newly elected Republican Governors are trying to pass in Wisconsin, Ohio and Michigan. their ALL trying to grab dictatorial powers.

these guys are all about MORE govenment control NOT LESS

now go back to listening to Rush Limbaugh or Glenn Beck.

I was talking about the idea that free US citizens should be forced by the government to watch a specific piece of media.

So republicans are all about more government whereas democrats are all about making the government smaller and less powerful?

I don’t listen to Rush Limbaugh and I can’t stand Glenn Beck. But thank you for playing.

Yes, I’m sure your comment of “wait for a version done with puppets....It may help your attention span” was meant as a compliment of one’s mental capacity.

South Park is actually one of the smartest shows on tv when it wants to be. The fact that you just grouped it with Family Guy shows you are completely oblivious to that.  

No, you’re the one obsessed with a country you don’t live in.  You’re like those losers that girl and moan about how much they despise celebrities yet they can’t seem to stop talking about them.

Your asinine comments crack me up. Get over it.

 



South Park is not a "smart" show. Just because they express many opinions that you agree with does not make it smart.

The global warming episode and the 9/11 truther episode are probably aligned with your own personal beliefs, hence you think the show is smart or for smart people etc.......

Actually, compared to other tv shows nowadays, South Park is a smart show when it wants to be. Especially considering it’s an animated comedy where the main characters are 8 year olds.

And like me, Matt and Trey are libertarians so yeah we share a lot of the same views.

First of all, Inside Job was a great movie. From beginning to end it is exciting and interesting.

 This is what I took away from the movie: In a roundabout way Christopher Plummer's character was based on George Soros. Very wealthy Wall Street type but definitely not a right winger. The robbers weren't stealing from his bank because he made billions on Wall Street. They were trying to prove he was a WWII war criminal.

 Matt Stone and Trey Parker, the creators of South Park, make fun of both liberals and conservatives while putting a comedic spin on pop culture stories. Stone was once quoted saying "I hate conservatives, but I really friggin hate liberals."
