Ron Paul team creates artificial intelligence

A series of electronic footprints residing in computer servers around the world pointed to Ron Paul’s campaign’s headquarters. The mostly unpaid team is charged with sending mass campaign emails and creating self-sufficient robots that have populated the internet.

Astrophysicist Stephen Hawkins’ wheelchair was among those hijacked in the process. “The on-board computer on my wheelchair suddenly signed on to RonPaul2008.com and threatened to shut off my air supply if I didn’t enter my credit card number… It then proceeded to spam websites like Digg and facebook.”

Researchers from the Singularity Institute, a non-profit think-tank tasked with creating Friendly Artificial Intelligence suggested schematics on Seed AI were stolen from their lab.

Ray Kurzweil, a lead Artificial Intelligence researcher and author of The Singularity is Near, believes Ron Paul and his team has created a series of intelligent beings with free-will that now roam the web, “it’s was only a matter of time before they organized and began a revolution. It’s not surprising that these free entities would choose a leader that opposes government and regulation. Information wants to be free.”

Although legislators in both houses of congress are ready to label Ron Paul’s internet self-sufficient robots a terrorist threat, it is not clear whether these organisms present a threat to society. An NSA representative neither confirmed nor denied the existence of designer-AI beings roaming the web, nor whether the rumors are cause for concern.

Paul spokesman Jesse Benton said in an e-mail, “This is the first I’ve heard about this situation.”

“If it is true, it could be done by a well-intentioned yet misguided supporter or someone with bad intentions trying to embarrass the campaign,” he wrote while ferrying his boss to tape an appearance on The Tonight Show. “Either way, this is independent work, and we have no connection.”

Ron Paul’s Digg Fame

What’s with all the Ron Paul articles on Digg?

1. Ron Paul supporters are addicted to Ron Paul. They can’t help getting high on diggs.

2. The internet is unregulated. The free market has chosen Ron Paul.

3. Giuliani eats babies.

4. The terrorists can only bury so many Ron Paul articles before their fingers cramp-up.

5. The terrorists haven’t found much to post about Giuliani. Writer’s block.

6. Hillary can’t compete with strippers 4 Ron Paul.

7. The mainstream media didn’t do their homework. Dog ate it.

8. Other candidates don’t get falsely smeared every day, generating thousands of stories for Ron Paul.

9. Other candidates have no support. Ron Paul diggers digg their stories out of pity.

10. Ron Paul doesn’t get dugg. Digg is Ron Pauled.

Now, some real reasons why the internet has a high affinity for Ron Paul.

American Trucks Begin Crossing Border Saturday! Now gringos, terrorists, can enter Mexico, too!

MEXICO, Federal District. August 31st, 2007

The first American trucks will begin crossing the border, confirming deeply held fears in Mexico that Mexican sovereignty has been lost. Juan Martínez says, “Terrorists were exclusive to the [United States] but now with the open borders, terrorists can come to Mexico too!”

“What will be of our jobs, now?” Martínez continued. “I just don’t think I can trust gringos to drive safely here in Mexico”.

Martínez, along with others, expressed terror at the thought of being unable to differentiate between American truckers and terrorists.

Julia Guillén de Chapultepéc wonders, “How will we know if the truckers are American or Saudi terrorists? Do they look the same? I don’t know…”

Guillén’s sister Laura is not worried about terrorists. Her fears involve drug trafficking into Mexico: “You hear all these stories about American truckers taking amphetamines and other stimulants to stay awake. Soon our children will be corrupted by drugs, too. We must put an end to this.”

Guillén’s daughter, a fifth grader, is worried that American truckers will bring guns into Mexico. “Americans have no respect for the law. I just know they bring guns into Mexico and sell them in the black market. They also trash our hotels and and leave our toilets unflushed. No wonder our country is going down the sewer”.

“What a slap in the face to Mexican workers, opening the highways to dangerous trucks on Labor Day weekend, an [American] holiday,” said a motor vehicle department official. “Plus, I don’t think these gringo drivers understand how driving works in Mexico. I can estimate a 20% increase in traffic accidents. We must close the borders soon […] My 12-year-old son drives better than the American tourists that rent cars here. One can only imagine the amount of destruction and chaos.”

“But will they understand the road signs? I studied abroad in the United States, and kids my age could hardly read in English,” says Pablo González, who recently graduated from secondary school.

Martínez ended our interview solemly. “With terrorists easily entering Mexico through the United States, we are now vulnerable to terrorism, too.”

Amid public discontent, the borders will nevertheless open, leaving Mexico wide open to terrorists currently residing in America.

Mitt-flopping: 4 out of 10 Romney supporters support Romney.

Out of 10,000; 4,000 voted. Romney has only 40% support among his own supporters. What does this mean?

It means 4 out of 10 Romney supporters support Romney. Or maybe 60% flip-flopped once they got on the bus.

There is a new name for this phenomenon: Mitt-flopping.

Romney is still considering whether he will run as a conservative or as an Islamic terrorist. 5 out of 4 Fox News pundits believe there is no answer to this question. On the issue Romney says:

“If Guantanamo triples in size, it might be a comfortable place to live… So it’s a difficult question, whether I’ll run as an Islamic terrorist, or not. Of course, I can always change my mind afterward, if I do not enjoy the enhanced showers (waterboarding).”

Mitt-Flops

Famous Mitt-Floppers include, Mitt Romney, John Kerry, sleazy used-car salesmen and Iowa voters.

EDIT: because you worship Bush (one of the worst reasons, probably)
EDIT 2: No, because you worship Giuliani, lol

P.S. Joining the military doesn’t make you a hero; all it takes is a signature.

EDIT 3: I’m not insulting the troops. If you don’t understand satire, don’t bother posting a comment.

Myth Number 1:
“My friends and sons and daughters are dying for your satire and your freedoms.”

No. They are probably in Iraq fighting people who have nothing to do with 9/11.

Myth Number 2:
“By making personal attacks on the author of this article and telling the author how he/she couldn’t write this if it wasn’t for the soldiers he/she is criticizing, I’ll show him/her.”

Wrong. Since I never in this article insult the military, it goes to show just how retarded you are. You continue to validate the list by showing me that people are too stupid to understand politics and satire. When soldiers go to Iraq, they are in NO WAY defending my right to write any of this. Iraqis have NOT threatened my freedom, so there is no need to kill them.

37. Rudy: You need help.

38. Rudy: Freedom is about authority.
Sex is about rape.

Nanny Giuliani

Nanny Giuliani (AKA Julie Nanny)

Rudy wants to be your nanny and tell you what to do. He hates your freedoms.

He’ll slam the cookie jar on your hand.
He’ll put your ferret to sleep and cook it for dinner.
He’ll spank you* when you don’t finish your ferret.
He’ll force you to sleep at 9:11 every night.
He’ll scare you with WTC stories so you won’t leave your room.
(And there’s a terrorist in your closet).
He makes your friends take off their shoes at home to check for shoe-bombs.
He beats you* and tortures when your RFID chip is not functional**
He dresses and speaks like Mrs. Doubtfire when he invites Trump over.
He warns you there will be another 9/11 if you are not good.
He won’t shut up about 9/11 even for the 9 minutes and 11 seconds you are allowed to watch TV***
He’ll punish you* for writing in Arabic numerals.
He once locked your friend Gibran in your ferret cage and threatened to waterboard him until he admitted he hated your freedoms.

*With a mangled 9/11 beam.
**Because you might not be you.
***You are only allowed to watch FOX news; and commercials count.

I support a police state (Giuliani)
I want a candidate who worships Bush, the worst ex-president ever (Giuliani)
I will vote for a woman even if she doesn’t stand for anything just because we can’t let countries like Indonesia be the only ones which have had a female president. (Clinton)
I only vote for candidates with disfigured faces or heavy plastic surgery. (McCain, Clinton).
I support polygamy (Giuliani) and will never vote for Paul or Romney.

I hate my country and want it destroyed by the hatred of our old allies (Bush [write-in], Giuliani, Bolton [write-in])
I like Osama Bin Laden. It makes for entertaining news! (Bush [write-in], Giuliani)
We can’t forget 9/11, 9-11, 9.11, September 11, nine-eleven, … (Giuliani)
I want all internet communications controlled by the government, and I don’t mind being labelled a terrorist (Gingrich).

Terror alerts give me an adrenaline rush (Giuliani, Bush [write-in], Gingrich).
I am a terrorist

I’m too lazy to learn Spanish or get a job (Tancredo)
I want a W clone who can pretend - through acting - he isn’t one (Thompson)

Also because:

Ron Paul, like our founding fathers, is an extremist.
After 8 years of experience, Bush might make a good president, yet!
I’d like to use the constitution as toilet paper, given the chance.
