    You are on fire tonight. I had a little energy but I’m wiped. I saw a whole bunch of things I’d like to fight you on but as of this morning I’m employed again.

    The one thing I will say is Public Sector Unions are breaking the backs of taxpayers. It wasn’t the Unions vs. Walker. It was the Unions vs. the taxpayers. We are broke and they want more. Think about this the public sector unions support Dems. Dems get elected and now have to bargin with the people that put them in office. You don’t give us what we want you won’t get re-elected. You don’t see a conflict of interest there.

  • Italian Mike



    That’s a rigged game for the union members and their neighbors are the ones getting screwed with higher taxes.

  • Jeff

    Theres my anti lbles refresher :)

    Time to eat then, I’m watching the NEW Dallas, it’s has sucked me in.

    Who doesn’t love to hate J.R. Ewing!!

    @coffee Steve hope your evening at church was pleasant.

    @Italian Mike Hannity is very jealous of Chris Matthews, so that is why he plays that sound byte so much.

    @steve perry thanks for the answer, the Mormon thing really holds no candle to his flip flopping and pandering. A VEEP really can’t hinder his horrible record as a horrible governor and as a extremely successful business man at the expense of many middle class families.

  • Italian Mike


    Please don’t get me going on public sector unions it is brutal the taxes here in Conn. Lucky for me under Obama I have been mostly unemployed.

  • Jeff

    @ Italian Mike congratulations on the new job!!!!! Yay!

    No need to fight, but your thoughts are always appreciated even if I disagree.

  • Suikostinger

    @Italian Mike

    I thought you owned a construction working company that was just having a slow month….

  • Jeff

    If your unemployed and you blame the President of the the United States of Amercia,

    I suggest you read Gov. Ed Rendel’s book.

    A Nation of Wusses…….. It’s great!

    Jobs have been created and unemployment has hone down under President Obama is it all his fault there too?

    Stop watching Fox News my friend!!

  • Italian Mike



    Go watch Dallas and enjoy. I am right on the public sector unions. That is biggest scam going. Anyone that is on the site please read my post above. Dem Governers that owe their office to the money from public sector unions are the ones bargaining with unions on contracts. The unions say to the Dem Governer you don’t give us what we want YOU DON’T GET RE-ELECTED. The fox guarding the henhouse.

  • Jeff

    @ Italian Mike your federal taxes are the same as mine based on what your earn. The state taxes in Conn is not President Obama’s fault.

    Conn. has some of the richest communities in the world with many of the richest people.

  • Ratboy

    @ Jeff
    @Italian Mike Hannity is very jealous of Chris Matthews, so that is why he plays that sound byte so much.

    Do you know how DUMB that sounds?? 2 million veiwers in one time slot against 1.3 million in two time slots and he is jealous????????????? Jeff you are smarter than that!!!! I am disappointed in you!

    Later guys!

  • Italian Mike



    We have had a slow couple of years. We got a little break with the Condo repairs. The money is not bad. The Condo associations are trying as out to see if we are good reliable. I have been working on trying to get in for two years. It might be something good.

    MSNBC, the extended care facility for liberal pundits…

    To clarify, I never said the courts or Congress made Obama do anything. I specifically stated that the courts upheld the EPA to regulate power plants for such things as Mercury and other toxins. Congress has an opportunity to pass a law to make this into a cap & trade scheme if they so choose. Hardly doublespeak.

    “Yes i read it, did you? I even posted where they said the EPA has to make the new rule. The court didn’t tell them what to say/write…only to make the rule. In other words the amount of reduction & the time table for said reductions was up to the EPA.”

    Yes, that is the job of the EPA. The court basically told them to enforce it. It can be challenged. We all know the many challenges the EPA has already faced with regards to industry and air pollution. The EPA focused on the 40% of the plants that have done nothing to put new technology in place and emit unlimited amounts of pollutants but on a positive note currently, 12% of the nation’s coal-fired power plants already meet the standards, by definition. Another 48% have some if not all of the necessary technologies in place to meet the standards. There is little sympathy from me for those plants that haven’t taken any steps toward reducing any toxins. Those are the ones that will have to probably use the 5 year extention which allows time to do what the other plants have already done, otherwise we’ve probably have to wait another few decades to get them to stop dragging their feet or they can just keep challenging it. Nothing that hasn’t been done before….over and over and over again kind of like these posts —- beating a dead horse on this same topic.

    “Now you are being dishonest. I never said a president by-passing congress was a good thing.”

    You stated, “So if a republican prez’s decides to ease the regs”. How else is the prez going to ease the regs?

    “I just wanted to let you know I’ll remember what you said. In case you decide to rag on a R POTUS for doing the same thing Nobama did.”

    Again, more partisan battle. I’m not really into it so maybe you should engage with someone else who enjoys saying R POTUS vs Your POTUS.

    “By all means point me to when you said that.”
    Correction: My exact words were, “Thanks for clearing that up”

    Have a great night all.

  • Italian Mike



    Constuction is terrible in Conn. The guy with a wife and three kids is underbidding me by thousands. He has to put food on the table. We invested in tools equipment and trucks. We didn’t want to fold be are close.

  • Jeff

    @ratboy, all of life does not lie in the results of the daily Nielsen ratings, stop thinking in such 2 dimensional terms. Chris has multiple shows and appears on many networks, and has received many awards and is held in high regard Hannity is a hack by comparison.

    I do not base your intelligence on your mad defense of Rush Limbaugh, Bill Oreilly, Glen Beck…..

    so spare me!!!!

  • Steve Perry

    Tuned in to watch Juan host the Factor and I’m liking what I’m hearing…Juan is highlighting all the polls that favor Obama and they’ve been hammering at Mitt ‘the Outsourcer-in-Chief’ Romney for not having a plan to improve the economy and for outsourcing of jobs. I wish Juan would host more.

  • bishop

    Stokton public employees retire at age 50 and receive $157 K a year for life. Doesnn’make sense to regular folks

  • Italian Mike

    I’m tired. I got to get up the morning.

    Later All

  • Jeff

    @jim my thought about you______________________________________________________________________________.

    I knew if I smoked the 3 headed snake out of his hole, he would come out spewing his venom, and low and behold two of the heads have appeared. Lmao!! Let’s see if the others come out too…….
