    “many on here didn’t grow up at all.”

    You got to be talking about me and I am proud of it.

    Beat you to it Coffee Steve and Ratboy.

    By the way Mike, welcome, we needed some younger blood on this site. :twisted:

    That “the” typo was for you grammer policeman

    Study: Liberals Leading Haters of Mormonism

    American liberals are the new face of anti-Mormonism, according to a new study by American National Election Studies (ANES).

    With their recent history of persecution of various groups and races,
    Efforts to deny citizens of equality,
    Baptism of deceased Jews


    It about time someone retaliated this group of bullies bigots and hypocrites.

  • Jeff


    What were ya doing in 1974?


  • suikostinger


    “The only one who cares is suiko and nobody cares that he cares”

    Actually. I think it was PaulG that has the pet peeve for when people don’t know how to use there, their and they’re and loose and lose. So you are wrong yet again.

    “As you have already seen, many on here didn’t grow up at all.”

    AHAHAHAHA. This comes from the guy that calls anyone in here that doesn’t agree with him idiots. This is guy that that makes up 100% false accusations like someones occupation.

  • Jim

    Suikostinger,are you going to correct Jeff and point out his mistake?
    Jeff I see your ‘IQ’ is not one of your strong points.
    Holder is on the hot set for blatantly giving false testimony.Not because he’s black. He denied knowing anything about ‘fast and furious,’ even though records show it started in 2009.Holden also claimed that didn’t know who gave authorization for fast and furious . Holden’s own testimony ,he now want us to believe that he had no knowledge of fast and furious that it was his assistant who approved a wiretap over a year ago and he only learned of it in the last few month’s .Either Holder is covering up or is to worried about suing states over their voting /illegal immigration laws.Take your pick Jeff.
    This has nothing to do if Holder is black,but that’s the game that Al,Jessie and many others play ‘he black and that’s why their putting him on the hot seat.’ That vomit Al spews is what wrong with this country.

    Mike ,

    Don’t worry about grammar or typos. We all make them , & , this site is for all to share ideas , beliefs, & to grow. I learn something from everyone here.


    Drug testing for welfare programs was passed in May of this year.”

    Oh, good! I’m sure it’ll save as much money in your state as it’s saved in ours

    – – –

    Tennessee is fighting a terrible drug abuse problem , mainly meth & prescription drugs. If it wasn’t so long, I could tell you the prescription
    drug saga here as relayed by our district attorney. Serious crimes have been the outcome of increased drug use.I saw the results on my grand jury stint, including a 4yr old girl rape case. The passage of drug testing here was never meant as a money saver. Testing will cost $200,000 on average in each of the next three years

    It was passed to make sure state funds are used appropriately & to encourage treatment as needed especially in families with children .

    Under the new law, “persons who do not submit to drug testing lose their benefits. Those who test positive lose their benefits for one year, or for six months if they undergo drug treatment and test negative at least twice and 30 days apart. Those who test positive after being readmitted to the program face a loss of benefits for three years, or less if they undergo treatment and test negative at least twice and 30 days apart.”

    As passed, the new law might not withstand a constitutional challenge.

    Matthew, I know your governor, Rick Scott, is very unpopular in Florida.


    Night all

  • suikostinger


    Not picking on you but it’s a pet peeve of mine when people don’t know the difference between their, there and they’re and clearly it’s not just a typo for you because you have done it TWICE ALREADY, all within about 2 hours….

    This is your quote AFTER I already pointed it out…

    “I saw everyone using there first name. Don’t be to hard on me us old people didn’t grow up with computers.”

    Like I said, it’s fine that you don’t know the difference, it’s just a pet peeve of mine and you and the “OTHER” Mike did the SAME wrong word RIGHT after each other. :)

    People like DB doesn’t understand the difference between a TYPO and someone just not knowing the difference between their, there and they’re. DB will also call you an idiot if you don’t share his same ideals, so you are going to fit right nice with him as long as you don’t attack Fox News and not are not a liberal.

  • PaulG


    Actually. I think it was PaulG that has the pet peeve for when people don’t know how to use there, their and they’re and loose and lose. So you are wrong yet again.

    not me,,I have no right to criticize anyone’s spelling…

  • suikostinger

    Suikostinger,are you going to correct Jeff and point out his mistake?

    I’ve actually said a few things to Jeff a few weeks ago. I rarely read his posts any more though because a lot of it IS just copy and paste, just like Ratboy. I hardly ever read his because he just copy and pastes also, that and when you converse with him and you show a FACT that he is wrong, he just disappears for about an hour or two then reappears out of nowhere with another copy and paste

  • suikostinger


    Might have been Ralph then.

  • Jeff


    Arrogance does not add up to intelligence, with all your errors in every single post, that would put your IQ in the (red).

    Sorry you had another bad day again and this is your way of being a tough guy.(actually not) ;)

    You are no civil rights expert ya loon. I will put my stock in someone who has dedicated his life to civil rights and equality over a Neanderthal like you.

  • Ratboy

    I am re-posting what I posted this morning and I invite anyone who agrees with the witch hunt thing to join us in the room I refer to. By the way you will also be facing in the same direction as Colmes

    Posted June 13, 2012 at 5:25 AM
    Good Morning Fun Seekers!

    I think I can finally comment. Last night Idiot Colmes was on OReilly and they were talking about the Fast and Furious investigation. When I heard this I got so darn mad I could not think straight! Clown Colmes said that the Fast and Furious investigation was nothing more than a right wing “Witch Hunt” against Obama!

    Now I have to take another deeeeep breath! I want to be the one that takes that flaming idiot by the hand and lead him into a room where he will be face to face with Brian Terry’s family. Then I want him to tell THEM all about the “Witch Hunt”!!!! and at that point I want to watch as the Terry family SLAPS THE STUPID OUT OF COLMES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    There……..I got it out!

  • Matthew

    “Tennessee is fighting a terrible drug abuse problem , mainly meth & prescription drugs. If it wasn’t so long, I could tell you the prescription”

    We have a huge problem with pill mills, and part of the reasons Scott passed our welfare drug testing in the first place is because he was taking a lot of heat from conservatives for refusing to create a database that was supposed to help crack down on pill mills. It’s still not a good piece of legislation, the program is costing money rather than saving money, and the added taxpayer cost is going to a company that Rick Scott founded, everything about it stinks. The knucklehead voters in this state only have themselves to blame, though, because Scott should have never made it past the Republican primary; His involvement in one of the largest cases of Medicare fraud in history should have immediately disqualified him in the eyes of the voters. He promised that his business experience would guide his governing practices, and every single day he lives up to that promise.

  • Ralph Hahn

    @mike: One thing that REALLY bugs me, from all sides, is the grammar (no ‘e’ in grammar) and the spelling by people trying to come off as being intelligent. A typo is a typo, so sometimes they are unavoidable because of typing speed and/or the writer’s temperament of the subject matter.

    Suikostinger and I hardly agree on much. But, I also notice and I get disgusted by people who incorrectly misuse sound-alike words like “their,” “there” and “they’re.” And, “your” and you’re (as in you are).

    There is a mindset here that thinks that correct spelling and grammar is not needed on the internet. And, we’re the ‘Grammar Police’. This is similar to the way schoolyard bullies pick on the smart kids.

    But, if you want to be taken more seriously, at least use spell-check or a dictionary or thesaurus BEFORE you post, so that you can be taken seriously.

    A’ight? ;-)

  • Jeff

    Suiko, thats okay, my c/p jobs are stories they wont hear on Fox, and many are to counter the right wing propaganda stories posted in here by my radical right friends. I do love your all your posts! I read every word and many times burst out in laughter.
    Most studies show that it is proper and should be accepted when correcting spelling errors.

    Keep us on our toes!

    I do listen to FOX from time to time and I am not really into sports.


    I hope you didn’t take that as an indictment of your TV viewing habits. The game last night involved 10 guys trying to shoot a round ball through a metal circle. One group ended up putting more balls through than the other. All the guys involved were millionaires.

  • Jim

    It just seemed like you were trying to make a fool out of Mike ,thanks for explaining your post.Everybody makes mistakes and as mike pointed out people that are new to computers will mistakes .I don’t care if somebody misspells words or makes grammar mistakes as I will make many myself. I don’t reread my post( I’m not writing a term paper) and if I missed a comma,colon or what ever ,I don’t give a sh*t. I can understand why you don’t read Jeff’s post.It seems the only posting Jeff does is c/p and litter this site with his childishness . As Hillbilly pointed out he like’s to play duck and hide and change the subject so he doesn’t have to explain his c/p.

  • suikostinger


    Thanks BUDDYYYYY!!!!!!! But you will never be attacked or be called the grammar police on here because you are a conservative and this little area of the internet is full of conservatives. If you aren’t a full blown conservative in here, that’s how it goes. I however will when I say such things because people in here love to attack and call names of someone that doesn’t believe in their same ideals. So you are safe there Ralph! Don’t worry.

  • suikostinger


    .I don’t care if somebody misspells words or makes grammar mistakes as I will make many myself. I don’t reread my post( I’m not writing a term paper) and if I missed a comma,colon or what ever ,I don’t give a sh*t.

    Yet again, you seem to not understand the difference between a typo and not knowing grammar. Hell, my I don’t even care about commas and colons because IMO, sometimes that can be confusing when it comes to correct English sentence structure because THERE ARE some weird rules when it comes to English. But my pet peeve is someone not knowing how to spell or know the difference between words that are used EVERY TIME you open your mouth. With that being said, say what you want to say and spell however the hell you want to spell it. It’s just a pet peeve of mine. I HAVE pointed it out before and I have seen it from people SINCE, but I’ve stopped saying it. Hell, I know for a FACT that I have typed there instead of their once in here, but CLEARLY I know the difference and that was a typo. Mike has made that mistake twice in his first 3 posts. The only reason I pointed it out just now was to make a point that BOTH Mikes that made the incorrect use of their and they’re and was posted pretty much right after each other is most likely the same person.
