    Woops. See I have a typo in my very second sentence where I didn’t delete the whole sentence and forgot the “my”.

    “Hell, my I don’t even care about commas and colons because IMO”

    Should be

    “Hell, I don’t even care about commas and colons because IMO”


  • Jeff

    @”Jim” or whoever…..
    You manage to obsess over the same things like someone else.
    You also manage to appear around the same time as someone else.
    Many people c/p in here yet you manage to just brilliantly single me out, like someone else.
    You compliment hillbilly over his rant, like someone else.
    Your posts are always the same complaint, like someone else.


    Analyze the behavior and you’ve got your answer.

  • Jim

    I know the difference between a misspelled word,grammar error’s and a typo. As some people don’t know the difference between to,two and too and as you pointed out they’re ,their and there .I also know there,their (TAKE YOUR PICK SUIK on the correct one I should use) no difference between a d*ckhead ans a a$$hole and you’re acting like both!

  • Jim

    Jeff you better lay-off the crack pipe ,YOU”RE NUTS!

  • Ralph Hahn

    @Jim: >>> no difference between a d*ckhead ans a a$$hole and you’re acting like both! <<<

    Ah, Jim…that remark was not really necessary. This is an issue that transcends politics and which news channel you prefer to watch. When I first started in radio, one woman used to call me up after the weather and correct me. I was saying "VAIR-a-ble" instead of "Vary-A'-ble." Yes, she was a retired english and grammar teacher.

    Would you consider this? Maybe, in correcting you, we could be opening a door for you further down the road, and proper spelling and grammar just COULD make the difference whether or not you get that dream job you always wanted?

  • Letmethink

    Welcome Mike. I am new here also. Have been reading forever and just started posting on occasion.

  • Jeff

    Lol, I did take a crack pipe once, but i didn’t inhale. Actually Mr. Ratboy was a little more accurate in recent days.

    Re: Jim

    I rest my case.


    Ralph you did radio? That’s very interesting!
    Hope you share more about it in the future.
    Either way I’m sure you have some great stories.

  • DB

    suiko, one example of me calling anyone an idiot!!

    Jim, I think Jeffie just accused you of being me.

  • DB

    usnretiredx2, I was referring to alot of us and I didn’t say not growing up was a bad thing. I’m sure Rat and Coffee are proud too! :-)

  • Jeff

    DB grew old perhaps, never grew up, Obvi!!!

  • suikostinger

    DB you are so freaking delusional and crazy it’s not even funny. I’ve posted and shown evidence probably 10 times now. You’ve said that I play with sock puppets. You’ve told me that I lack brain power. You’ve said “you say dumb things Suiko, but I expect nothing more out of you”. You use innuendo to call me and everyone else that isn’t a conservative an idiot. You have to be one the most delusional people I have EVER seen, to think that you’ve never actually called me or anyone else an idiot, while owning up to saying those sentences towards me and other non conservatives in here.

  • suikostinger

    You have to be one of the*

  • suikostinger

    People should = person also. DANG. Now that I’ve brought the grammar police in here, I’ve been doing horribly.

  • Steve Perry

    Talk about being out of touch. I understand that every single politician has had their share of gaffes, including Obama. However, when you don’t even know what a doughnut is…that’s when you know you’re out of touch with the real world. At first I laughed, then I felt embarrassed for him, and then I came to the sad realization that he really doesn’t have a clue….it’s both sad and scary.


  • james

    fox killing it

  • Coffee Steve

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

    Beat you to it Coffee Steve and Ratboy.


    Up late tonight, my Internet Explorer 32 bit stopped working, my 64 bit version is fine, but having a great time trying to repair it.

  • UpAndOver

    Scrolling up to get to Fox News I noticed that Maddow is trying to look like a man….

    Oops, my bad it’s some man trying to look like a girl….

    fox killing it

    fox killing it “the truth”

    Oh hell yeah!!!!

  • Scroll the Troll

    TPPA leaked documents story exploding across the blogs. An article on Hufpo has gotten over 26,000 comments in just a few hours. So far the only MSM to run a story has been Current. Interesting to see if this will get real legs tomorrow or just fade away.

  • Coffee Steve

    Good Morning Everyone!!!
