    @Hillbilly
    I was told growing up the birds pooped me & the sun hatched me.

    You mean we weren’t pooped out of the storks B’Hind? DAG! I hate getting older and learning some of the things Mom told me isn’t true :lol:

    Think members of Congress act like a bunch of high school students? You might be on to something. A recent study from the Sunlight Foundation found that members of Congress tend to speak at about a tenth-grade level.

    Hey Applestinx grab me a bale. :grin:

    Four tons of marijuana in large bales were found bobbing off the Southern California coast, and authorities are still trying to determine where it came from.

    Finding parking in New York City can be notoriously difficult. But would you pay $1 million just to have your own guaranteed spot? That’s the forthcoming offer in one luxury condo building that will charge $1,000,000 for an otherwise standard parking spot in its building.

    15 Facts That Even Obama’s Biggest Supporters Should Be Able To Admit Are True

    1) Real median household income is down $4300 since Obama took office.

    2) The percentage of unemployed workers who’ve been out of a job for more than a year is over 30%.

    3) The country has had the longest streak of +8% unemployment since the Depression under Obama: 39 months and counting.

    4) In 2011 under Barack Obama, nearly one out of every seven Americans was on food stamps. That’s a 70 percent increase from 2007.

    5) Fifty percent of new college graduates are underemployed or unemployed.

    6) U.S. home ownership is at a decade long low. So is the number of Americans who say their home is worth more than they paid for it. Home prices are the lowest they’ve been since 2002.

    7) Barack Obama ended NASA’s manned space program

    8) Going into this election cycle, Barack Obama had raised more money from Wall Street than any President in history. He has also raised more money from Wall Street than all of the GOP presidential contenders combined in this election cycle.

    9) Under Barack Obama’s leadership, the last time Harry Reid and the Senate Democrats passed a budget was April 9, 2009.

    10) Barack Obama’s budget was defeated 414-0 in the House and 99-0 in the Senate.

    11) When he was running for President in 2008, Barack Obama pledged not to raise taxes on families making less than 250,000 dollars per year. He broke that promise with the tanning salon tax and with Obamacare, which raises almost 500 billion dollars in new taxes, a significant portion of which would be paid by people making less than 250,000 dollars per year.

    12) When Barack Obama took office, gas was $1.95 per gallon. Today gas is $3.72 +/- per gallon.

    13) In February of this year, the federal government had a 229 billion dollar deficit. That was the largest deficit in the history of the United States.

    14) America lost its AAA credit rating (which it had held since 1917) on Obama’s watch despite the fact that Timothy Geithner publicly said there was “no risk” of that happening.

    15) Barack Obama added more to the debt in just 38 months than George Bush did in two full terms as President.

    Teacher who told Student He Could Be Arrested for Talking Badly About Obama…Is suspended with pay

    With Pay??? THAT A BOY!!! way to teach the teacher a lesson, “You TAKE TIME OFF and go enjoy a vacation”

  • Coffee Steve

    @d.d.
    These are the two you posted that stands out to me

    9) Under Barack Obama’s leadership, the last time Harry Reid and the Senate Democrats passed a budget was April 9, 2009

    10) Barack Obama’s budget was defeated 414-0 in the House and 99-0 in the Senate.

    And remember as well, this is 2 years in a roll his budget got “ZERO” Votes from “BOTH” sides.

    @ Jeff

    Thing is, Jeff, is that unlike the PROVEN LIARS on MSNBC and CNN, Bill O’Reilly, Sean Hannity, Fox & Friends, and even those on The Five do NOT spread hate and misinformation.

    LOL You talk about spreading hate and misinformation when the ONLY people I see here doing that are YOU and YOUR idiot friends. You talk about spreading hate and misinformation when Fox News has NEVER ONCE spread either one. Yet, hate and misinformation are the ONLY things that ever come out of MSNBC, lol. How about you try to come up with an arguable that actually does NOT conflict with reality itself. Than maybe some people might actually take you seriously.

    There’s so many idiots like you on the left that it’s ridiculous. You claim Fox News is guilty of the same illegal activities. News flash, son. It is far, far more likely that CNN and MSNBC are considering that they lie CONSTANTLY and Fox News has been NOTHING but honest as evidence by study after study after study. You might want to check into reality some time and receive some enlightenment.
