    Gabriel:: my definition of double taxation is getting a pay check, paying the 30 per cent ordinary tax rate, managing to save a few bucks and investing in general electric stock, getting a dividend and being hit with another tax at the same rate as the first time even if the value of the stock went down…why would anyone invest their money under such a scenario…Obama calls this fair, I call it stupid and bad economics..

  • Snap Tie

    Obama gets Booed…..AT FENWAY PARK, MASSACHUSETTS TODAY!

    White House is spinning it that Obama was not getting Booed…crowd was yelling, “Bo, Bo, Bo…Where is Bo. Did you eat Bo”?

    Morning Joe was terrific this morning from Fenwy Park. Outstanding show.

  • AppleStinx

    62K in the demo for AC360 at 8pm smells like an all-time low.
    The O’Reilly Factor at 8pm has been on the low side in the demo as well, close to being beaten by its own 11pm run.

  • TheBoss1

    Damn that lbsles sure is narcissistic.

  • AppleStinx

    What’s up with all these instances of ‘HLN Local Edition’? Is HLN turning to local news for much of the day now?

  • Joan

    All I can say is if anyone listened to gutted to five minutes on the five they would be hooked for good. He is hysterical.

  • Joan

    Gutfeld …..that was the iPhone fault.

  • Joan

    Apple did nancy Grace lose her prime time spot?

  • Coffee Steve

    @Ratboy

    So I get back to the room after a good meal out, and you left the room a mess, took me an hour to clean, Thanks Man ! :-)

    What it be boys and girls? Enjoy your time without me?

  • Joan

    @SnapTie
    I think he should rather be booed lol

  • Coffee Steve

    So We’re eating our dinner, and a 14-15 year old girl comes up and ask for my autograph, I sign her poster, she sits down beside my Daughter and says how come your not on TV no more?, I tell her I resigned and I’m just taking time with my family then…She looks straight at my wife and says

    “Can I join you for Dinner?” I don’t get to see many Movie starts LOL..ROTFLMBO I just about spit my coffee out

  • Joan

    Not your coffee! Anything but your coffee!

  • AppleStinx

    Joan asked: “Apple did nancy Grace lose her prime time spot?”

    She didn’t, according to the table above. I no longer get HLN, so I can’t confirm.

  • Coffee Steve

    @Joan

    LOL…by the time her mom came over we knew her entire family history

  • AppleStinx

    @Coffee Steve

    Ok, we’re all dying to know: who was the star on the poster? :cool:

  • Coffee Steve

    @AppleStinx

    It was a Hunger Games poster she got when they went to the theater and seen the movie. The kid was adorable.

  • Joan

    Come on coffee was it George Clooney or Brad Pitt. See we don’t know which one you resemble?
