    LBSLES is brilliant…..keep up the good work., I heard RUSH say all that
    today but I love reading it too !

  • DB

    suiko, why don’t you try answering a question? Who is Bill Meyer? You referred to him in one of your posts and I don’t know who he is.

    LBSLES– keep it up. Maybe some of these libs who refuse to listen to Rush because they believe the lies of the msm will learn something.

  • Joan

    @LBSLES. Thanks very informative and it made up for my missing Rush this week!

    @DB ditto

  • lbsles

    Thanks guys for the kudos.

    It’s easy to find the truth out there, you just have to have an open mind and realize the predicament that the US faces if dumbo ears obumbles gets another four years.

    Speaking of another four years did you hear that at one of his reelection campaign stops he said that it he would need the other five years if reelected to really accomplish all he wanted to do. Read as: “Screw America and turn it into a socialist / communist country”.

  • suikostinger

    Who is Bill Meyer?

    Bill Maher….I did post that post at 3 AM or close to it I think…..I’m pretty sure you knew who I was referring to. :) You just want to troll.

  • lbsles

    Let’s list some of the things that make obumbles a great leader for America’s youth.

    1. Took drugs, marijuana and cocaine.
    2. Indulged in alcohol to induce a stupor.
    3. Bullied fat ugly girls.
    4. Did not do well in school, probably because he was a truant, for you dumbocrats here that means: intentional unauthorized or illegal absence from compulsory schooling.
    5. Dated and shacked up with white women until he saw a need for a black wife to make it look good for election purposes.”
    6. “Lived with a Pakistani male for a couple of years even going along to Hawaii with his “Male Friend” paying the way.
    7. Went to Pakistan with this friend, all the while not working. Where did he get the money?
    8. No school or college records released.
    9. Questionable Father, Stepfather. Mother abandoned him early in his life.
    10. In Chicago lived around and was friends with known socialists and communists.
    11. Shady land deal that gave him a large payoff with very little of his own capitol invested.
    12. Not much a leader in today’s world.
    13. Does not have a clue what venture capitol ventures are.
    14. Is a race baiter.

    That sounds like someone that suklow would want his daughter to marry.

    Make sure everyone knows this Soros funded domestic terrorist: Brett Kimberlin
    You probably don’t know his name. Kimberlin is a convicted domestic terrorist who went to prison after setting off a series of bombs and served 17 years of a 50 year sentence. Where’s he today? Working for Soros and terrorizing conservative bloggers. Glenn talks to two bloggers targeted by Kimberlin, their stories are chilling.

    Damn straight!!

    Old story but very relevant today.

    So has the President been caught in a massive lie? Apparently author Scott Wright has been doing some research on stories he told on the campaign trail, and he has found some contradictory information – primarily that a story he told on the campaign trail about his mother’s cancer coverage was exaggerated, to say the least.

    “For my mother to die of cancer at the age of 53 and have to spend the last months of her life in a hospital room arguing with insurance companies because they’re saying that this may be a preexisting condition and they don’t have to pay her treatment, there’s something fundamentally wrong about that.

    “There is something fundamentally wrong about that. It’s a lie,” Pat said. “Her insurance company covered her completely for the problem that she was suffering.”

    “That is weird. According now to the records in January 1995, she left Indonesia to go to Honolulu where she was diagnosed with an advanced uterine and ovarian cancer. She began a regimen of surgery and chemotherapy. This is the time which womb says his mother battled the insurance companies to cover her illness. But Scott, an author of a new book who has access to Dunham’s correspondence from the time reveals that she unquestionably had health coverage. Ann’s compensation for her job in Jakarta had included health insurance which covered most of the cost of her medical treatment,”

    Wow! Another mistake by Suik aka ‘Mr Perfect.’I guess when you make a mistake it’s a typo,but when someone else makes a mistake it can’t be a typo, it’s must be because they’re to stupid to spell.Suik just go join Jeffy and Nancy in Nancy’s rubber room .

  • suikostinger

    ’I guess when you make a mistake it’s a typo,but when someone else makes a mistake

    Like I said before, but you can’t seem to comprehend. Saying looser instead of loser and their instead of there MULTIPLE times is NOT a typo. Mistyping a PROPER name and saying “call” instead of “all” is a typo It’s a really simple thing to comprehend, not that hard to understand.
