    More bad ratings for CNN and MSNBC – and Rachel was back last night.

  • Ratboy

    Yep congrats buddy and when I am re-elected we can ruin the world together!! (remember the little whisper and knee pat from Obama? )

    Obama congratulates Putin on third term: Kremlin

    MOSCOW — US President Barack Obama on Wednesday congratulated Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin on his return to the presidency, the Kremlin said, despite often testy relations.

    Obama and Putin discussed in a telephone conversation how Russian-American relations can be developed, the Kremlin said in a statement.

    Putin has been highly critical of the United States, accusing Washington of helping or financing protest movements which have sprung up since controversial legislative elections in December

  • usnretirex2

    “Hey, if you don’t like Obama, the healthcare bill, and what Obama is doing to the country, then just leave the U.S.

    Sounds dumb huh?”

  • usnretirex2

    Nope, first choice is to try and change it, next as Ratboy said to move from state to state is nothing, you are still in the US (maybe kind of, not sure about CA, had to do that one Jeff). To mandate all US to do something to be in the US is wrong.

    If I live in a state that will not allow GM then I must decide if I want to live there and if I do it has no personal impact on me.

    A dozen dems voting in favor says something

    House votes to stop Obama immigration lawsuits

    The House voted early Wednesday morning to stop the Obama administration’s lawsuits against state immigration laws.

    The amendment, which strips funding so that the Justice Department cannot pursue the lawsuits, passed 238-173. Twelve Democrats voted for it, while six Republicans voted against it.

    The amendment specifically applies to laws in Arizona, Oklahoma, Missouri, Utah, Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina and Indiana. The Obama administration and immigrant-rights groups have sued to block laws in each of those states.

    “Instead of using tax dollars to sue states, the Department of Justice and other branches of this government should start focusing on enforcing existing immigration laws,” said Rep. Lou Barletta, a Pennsylvania Republican who as mayor of Hazleton oversaw a city ordinance cracking down on illegal immigration. “Until they do, the Department of Justice should not receive one federal tax dollar to sue states.”

    Last month the Supreme Court heard oral arguments on the Obama administration’s challenge to Arizona’s crackdown law, which requires state and local police to check the legal status of those they are investigating whom they suspect of being in the country illegally.

    The amendment still would need approval by the Senate and acceptance by President Obama — both of which are unlikely. But Wednesday’s vote underscores the popularity of state laws. Recent polling shows an overwhelming majority of voters support the idea of states being able to act.

    The Republicans who voted against the amendment were Reps. Judy Biggert of Illinois, Mario Diaz-Balart of Florida, Robert Dold of Illinois, Patrick Meehan of Pennsylvania, David Rivera of Florida and Ileana Ros-Lehtinen of Florida.

    The Democrats who voted yes were Reps. Jason Altmire of Pennsylvania, John Barrow of Georgia, Dan Boren of Oklahoma, Ben Chandler of Kentucky, Larry Kissell of North Carolina, Stephen F. Lynch of Massachusetts, Jim Matheson of Utah, Mike McIntyre of North Carolina, Colin Peterson of Minnesota, Nick J. Rahall II of West Virginia, Mike Ross of Arkansas and Heath Shuler of North Carolina

    “Nope, first choice is to try and change it”

    uhhh nope, first choice is to move out of the state, at mentioned by 3 people in here. So if you don’t like what Obama is doing just move out of the country, there are plenty of other countries to go live in. :)

    “you are still in the US”

    Just move to Canada, you are still in North America. :)

    I just love the excuse that the reason to not let gays marriage is to protect the sanctity of marriage, yet the divorce rate is 41%. Even poor little old Newt said that and he’s been divorced 3 times….HAHAHAHAHA

  • Ratboy

    hey suiki
    your comment was – The government and the bible intertwining? Sounds like something that should NEVER happen, coming from a Christian

    I showed you very simple ways how they are intertwined and then you come back and say “what does that have to do with it?????” and never said if yu dont like the NC law leave, I just pointed out to you that your leave a state over a state law vs. leaving the country over not liking the president were not the same.

    If you think your posts through first you will not get labled as …………lets say………..illinformed

    HAHAHAHAHA are you aware that the Catholic church does not condone divorce either?? So once again you are wrong, it is in fact in part protectiong the santity of marriage.

  • suikostinger

    @Ratboy

    “I showed you very simple ways how they are intertwined and then you come back and say “what does that have to do with it?????””

    Actually I said this….

    How does that have anything to do with the bible determining the laws that our government should pass…..which is what DB was just saying? Oh that’s what, nothing. Heck, some people even have a problem with those 2 things. But putting your hand on a bible has nothing to do with determining law. But seems like DB is fine with the bible determining what laws our government should or should not pass…..lol

    Next time Ratboy, you might not want to paste HALF a sentence. :)

    “HAHAHAHAHA are you aware that the Catholic church does not condone divorce either??”

    No crap? Yet people get divorced. The same people that get divorced (which destroys the sanctity of marriage) also say that gays shouldn’t marry because that will destroy the sanctity of marriage…..I guess only in your world that A-OK…..

    You are just like Obama, you forget when things are recorded. Below is the complet copy and past of your post that i responded to with the example of the intertwining of the bible and gov.

    Won’t even get into how far this country has fallen morally where a President who says he is Christian will try to legitimize an unnatural life style that is a sin as outlined by God’s word. One battle ground state to the Repubs!!

    The government and the bible intertwining? Sounds like something that should NEVER happen, coming from a Christian…..

  • suikostinger

    Ratboy, you just tried to compare putting your hand on the bible in court (which I think shouldn’t be part of our country either, because really? Putting your hand on the bible is going to make someone not lie in court!?) to people thinking the bible should determine the laws of our country…..Only you and DB would try to say something so dumb….

  • suikostinger

    lol AT Ratboy…..

    You must be smoking something today, can I has?

    Are you not aware of the amount of impact religion had as the founding fathers put this country together? Are you not aware of the continuing impact that religion impact has on the governing of this country? are you not aware that the 10 comandments are in the supreme Court bldg? click on the snopes link for a few more examples of the intertwining of the Bible and religion in our country

    @Ratboy

    Who, what ,when and where did I say it didn’t…..lol. You do realize that, that is my POINT right? The bible, and religion SHOULDN’T play a role in our government and whether gays should or should not marry. Why can’t you follow such a simple concept?

    I’m still waiting on you to copy and paste me saying “what does that have to do with it?????”

  • Ratboy

    @ I’m still waiting on you to copy and paste me saying “what does that have to do with it?????”

    What does that have to do with it/How does that have anything to do with the bible………………..pretty much the same huh??

    How does that have anything to do with the bible determining the laws that our government should pass…..which is what DB was just saying? Oh that’s what, nothing. Heck, some people even have a problem with those 2 things. But putting your hand on a bible has nothing to do with determining law. But seems like DB is fine with the bible determining what laws our government should or should not pass…..lol

  • Rabbit

    Even if Obama didn’t come out to support same-sex marriage, the next Democratic candidate would have been for it in 2016. And the Republicans will eventually come around. A lot of younger Republicans are for gay marriage and its a generational issue. It’ll probably be around 2030, but oh well.

  • suikostinger

    No Ratboy it’s not.

    You can’t just copy and paste half a sentence, then take it out of context like Fox News and MSNBC does….sorry, that’s not how it works. :)

    But then again, I don’t expect anything more from a person that tries to compare people putting their hands on the bible to people thinking the bible should actually determine the laws that we have in our government. Those are two totally different things, even though I believe NEITHER should happen. But to think (I’m quoting because this is how you are sounding Ratboy, to me) “Hey the bible is already intertwined into our government because people and the president put their hand on the bible, so why can’t the bible and the people that inject religion into our laws do that?”

    Anyway, I’m out. I have no work tomorrow or Thursday because our Vinyl Cutting machine belt broke and the new replacement won’t come in until Friday.

  • b

    It makes my day knowing what people like Ratboy are going to go through over the next 8-years. The Country is moving so far to the RIght that it is YOU Ratboy that will be leaving the Country….and if you don’t, I’ll find out where you live and personally beat your head-in so hard that you will never come back….
