    @ratboy, coffee Steve, it was a rough day for the Republicans and wacky far right neo cons cry baby sore losers, but you two remain cool cats in my book!!

    Ratboy, my brother said its 106 in Ypsilanti, plus with the Michigan humidity, that’s Palm Springs desert temps without the disgusting humidity……ugh! stay out of that heat!

    Have a great night!!

    Steve Perry & Suiko you do the same, I have a few showings, and then it’s gonna be a cocktail night!!

  • Ralph Hahn

    @Jeff: >>> Rep. Issa bragged about getting the support of over 30. Well, that didn’t happen. <<<

    So, Issa got 17 Dems. 17, 30, 45 or whatever. The House STILL voted to find Holder in contempt. What's the big difference? I've got to give those 17 Dems credit for doing what's right for the middle-class, instead of "Party first."

  • REM

    Obama just lost the election today.

    Largest tax increase in the history of the world, is obamacare

  • Ralph Hahn

    @Suiko: Re: “Laurence.” I did not catch that the first time.

    Again, it gives me pause to wonder what the age is of some of our fellow posters. Did Laurence grow up in a world where there are no Lawrences? LOL

  • Suikostinger

    REM. Is Obama still a Muslim?

  • Steve Perry

    Conservatives always seem to be on the wrong side of history. I guess it has to do with their way of thinking.

    Conservative –
    1. Favoring traditional views and values; tending to oppose change.
    2. Traditional or restrained in style

    Liberal –
    1. Not limited to or by established, traditional, orthodox, or authoritarian attitudes, views, or dogmas; free from bigotry.
    2. Favoring proposals for reform, open to new ideas for progress, and tolerant of the ideas and behavior of others; broad-minded.

    Tingles with 75,000 in the key demo at 7pm!

    With no money to pay for there reforms.

    Good evening Hillbilly and everyone else,

    “The same way Nobama put them in place”

    Is enforcing the law the same as trying to change the law?

    “You have no problem with what Nobama & the EPA has done.”

    They were following the laws of the Clean Air Act.

    “Now if a republican prez reverses or cuts back on their MATS rule, & you start ragging on them, you will be partisan.”

    I would say go ahead feel free and let the courts decide if that is legal.

    “Nothing partisan about it. I don’t get why you think pointing out facts is partisan.”

    I don’t have a problem people pointing out facts. My point was people who ignore the facts/issues and wage R POTUS vs Your POTUS is nothing but partisan wars. No president is perfect. People have a right to point out things they like and dislike but this whole discussion started with someone calling Obama a “radical leftist”. I asked what policies did Obama push through that were radical and to the left where no Republican has ever been and that was never supported with facts. The truth is he is pretty center and our politics are to the right compared to other countries and Authoritarian. Obama’s polices are no different.

    “If you no longer wanna talk to me just say so.”

    I never said that Hillbilly. Even though our relationship started out so differently;)

    Foxnews wins again. Cream always rises to the top!!!


    So do droppings. From people.

  • Italian Mike



    As a wacky of the wall right wing, neo-con, sore loser I only want you to tell me how you are going to pay for the welfare state. I still haven’t gotten an answer from any progressive. 1.5 TRILLION DEFICIT FOR THE LAST FOUR YEARS. Step up progressives

  • Steve Perry

    Poor O’Reilly, he sounded like he was going to have a heart attack…he is pissed with both the healthcare ruling and the Fast & Furious. It still baffles me that he decided to go on vacation during one of the most important political weeks of the year.

  • Italian Mike

    I posted all afternoon and still not one progressives has told me how they were going to pay for the welfare state. I can accept defeat. I can read the polls. You guys might be in charge for four more years.

  • Italian Mike


    Steve Perry

    Don’t worry Steve he can afford a private doctor if he has a heart attack.

  • Chris

    Steve Perry: Free of bigotry? Liberals love to bring up the race card often. Good for you if you are liberal. I don;t dog anybody anymore for their political idealogy. If you believe what you believe good for you.

    Tolerant: if you support Liberal idea’s. If you don;t support what they believe they don’t like you.

  • Chris

    Steve Perry: That I agree with you on why did O’Reilly sit out this week?

  • Chris

    CNN is dead in the water. The best thing they had going for them was John King and they sacrificed him for Erin Burnett’s show which isn’t doing well. I don’t think CNN will do well on Election Night Coverage this year.

  • amanda

    Liberals are like spoiled crybabies if they dont get their way they get up and leave [wisconsin,today] or blame someone else.

  • Steve Perry


    Those definitions come straight from the dictionary. Yeah, something is really fishy about O’Reilly being on vacation during this week.
