    I can’t be annoyed, for I annoy myself more than anyone else could annoy me :-)

  • Jeff

    @yeah Jim what ever you say!! Cheers!!

    Sending ya hugs d.d. :) thanks for sharing all the info you feel is good reading. Let’s not let others discourage sharing or commenting. Everyone is entitle to share and or be criticized.
    We all certainly know our rights.

    If we didn’t copy and paste we would never know Ratboy is a slightly leaning right Republican :lol:

  • Coffee Steve


    Since you and I wear at times hearing aids SHOULD I TYPE LOUDER? Hehehehe

  • Jim

    This is one of a very few site’s ,where there more pasting going on then in a 1st grade art’s and craft’s class.What I’m getting at is simply, if you’re going to c/p all the time at least give your opinion(I believe you’re one of a few that does give their opinion after pasting) instead of post after post after post that is copied and pasted , that someone else wrote and NEVER giving their opinion on why they may agree or disagree . I’m not trying to get under anybody’s skin as I just started reading this site ,but damn there more paste on this site then a 1st grader could eat in a school year.

    Dude, Putin is sending Pres Obama a message :-)

    Russia’ test-fires intercontinental ballistic missile…

  • Jeff

    Hi Jim,

    Clearly when I share a post I am sharing a source I agree with. You would not care to hear my personal thoughts given your lame complaint in the first place. Scroll past my post or go play a game. Cheers!

  • Coffee Steve

    Have a good evening everyone


  • d.d.


    A big welcome from all of us !

    Jim ,

    C/P is annoying to more than just you . You can look at it in one positive way . Bill & Robert get paid by the page . The more that appears on their thread , the better their income is. (At least that’s what Bill told us a while back.)

    I’m sorry I keep missing our gal pal ,Sunshine.


    Our economy sputters as layoffs continue

    Strauss Discount Auto, the 93-year-old company founded in Newark, has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection . The company also dismissed 580 employees, according to the Chapter 11 filing.

    Supervalu Cutting 2,500 More Jobs in Albertson’s Stores

    J.C. Penney Co. said it would close its San Fernando store CA

    American Airlines – Total of 1,400 Manager Layoffs

    Verizon – Offering Buyouts to 1,700 Workers

    1000 Layoffs at RG Steel Chapter 11

    This hurts us all.


    Hundreds march in Milwaukee in the aftermath of Walker recall vote

    I noticed Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) organizer Michael Raspanti was leading the march.


    Closing up shop . BBT

  • Jim

    Talk about being lame,Jeff. You’re one of the posters that I was posting about being unable to think for their self . Jeff you’re always pasting Media Matters and if that is the source you get your personal thoughts from then you’re in trouble .Then why Jeff every time someone does question you,you play a duck and hide game and never answer them and defend your point of view?
    Jeff debating you would be like Charlie Brown trying to kick the football while Lucy is holding the ball .Lucy pulls the ball away from Charlie Brown and he’s falls flat on his a$$ and you couldn’t pull a though out of your a$$.

    What the heck is Ed going to talk about now! He has spent the last year and a half on Wisconsin.

    D*mn Ray Bradbury died Tuesday. “It is a pleasure to burn”
    May be that is where we are headed. All the pissed off fireman will be hired by the Totalitarian Government to burn books.

    To late we no longer have books. Scratch that thought.

  • Jeff


    Very good at stating the obvious, who cares??
    If my posts and or links bother you…… Good!

  • Dreamer

    At the place that I normally post, you would be banned for half of the thing some people say here.
    I personally think, do not start with people. Just read (maybe post) and enjoy.

  • Rick

    Dreamer welcome to Nightmare on TVbtNs. Many people on this site have something to say. Although there is a fair amount of disagreement, that can be a sign that someone actually read what you posted. That is more than the government or the media does. Government and the Media only wants to have themselves heared.

    But I would agree that it would be nice if people would state what they think in their own words as aposed to quoting someone else. I usually know what most of the media pundits are going to say.

    Quite a few of the people that post on this site have good points. Sometime you need to read them carefully and it helps to be familiar with the people because they have different ways of expressing themselves.

    msnbc is a total joke. ED is laughable

    First of all, Thanks.
    “Quite a few of the people that post on this site have good points. Sometime you need to read them carefully and it helps to be familiar with the people because they have different ways of expressing themselves.”

    Sometimes I feel this is but one bastion of free speech that is left.
    Although, I do have one or two favorites that post.
