    Jeffie, look at July 4,7:31pm. You said Jim lied about working for the EPA. Jim says he never said that. Either show where Jim said he worked for the EPA or apologize to Jim for misquoting him and calling him stupid. BTW, I worked for the EPA for 32 years.

    Coffee Steve

    The tanning tax does not hit until 2013 as it should due to the medical cost and consequences of tanning bed use. Just like if you smoke you pay a higher premium.

    Your use of pay higher taxes on OTC drugs is not quite valid. As an exemption perhaps….

    Coffee Steve
    you forgot a very important tax to military families like us. Tricare (military helath insurance) will be raise by $200 a month with a gradual increase capped at 365% by the time Oblamer is done. Also the real estate tax that taxes new homes at 4%. Those are a few more to add to the list of Oblamercare.

  • Jeff

    ratboy, a Teaparty rag is not the WSJ. Does this really need explanation?

    Then saying I think the WSJ article is a great piece, I can understand why it bothers you! Romney is losing ground.

    Your credibility and comprehension seems off these days.

    If you struggle with a post that has multiple points, that’s unfortunate.

  • DB

    As most of us know the folks who run this site have very few rules about what we discuss and how we discuss it. A very good thing or Coffee Steve and dd would be the only ones left( maybe a couple of others). I know of only one person banned from the site for what they said and it was a disgusting statement about Christianity. Now most of us also know the one hard and fast rule in the past has been no sockpuppets. Jeffie knows about this rule as do a couple of others who were banned for a period of time. Now we have a poster, suiko, who has posted as himself and Jessica (several times). He unfortunately, for him, spilled the beans accidentally by posting as suiko but under Jessica’s name (June 29, 5;40pm) and in the following post admitting he posted under Jessica’s name but tried to cover his mistake by saying he did it on purpose. I understand it has been a holiday week and maybe Robert nor Bill has seen suiko’s mistake, but I would like to know when you do get a chance to read it to let us all know if the rule has changed and sockpuppets are now ok. If suiko, disappears for a few months that will answer my question too. If the rule has changed that is fine, it is your site and you make the rules and thank goodness there aren’t many. Just when you can please clarify. Thanks.

    My property taxs went down $1000/yr in the last couple of years. Thank you Bush

  • DB

    Jeffie, Jim’s quote saying he worked for the EPA or apology. We are waiting.

  • Jeff

    DB, seems you and Jim have a lot in common. Jim IS stupid, why should I be sorry about that.


    This being banned crap, is something you made up. I have no clue what you are talking about. You are one of the most negative people on here. Attacking people instead of the debating the issues, no matter how crazy or wild the issues. Who ever said you were vile and disgusting was 100% accurate. You even seemed after being called out by a woman to lighten up by kissing a$$es of other people in here all the sudden, and showing a new interest in commenting on topics instead of your crazy obsession with negative attacks against Suikostinger and myself, also a few others that you always try to bully out of here.

    It would seem that your Independance day holiday hindged on the false claims you made against Suikostinger.(how pathetic) You really need to just make your points about the topics and have passionate debates as most of us do.(doubt your capable).

    If anyone should leave its you.(one can only hope)

  • Jeff

    @bishop, Home values dropped over 50% or more. Thanks Bush!

  • Italian Mike

    I am Bruno, ah Italian Mike, no I am Bruno.

    Hey Jeff and the rest of the lefties, your guy is doing Ok. He has a small lead and if the jobs number is not terrible he will be tough to beat.

    You all know me by now so I am not going to whine about the media and the negative ads. I am still whining about the media but you have already heard how the left wing, bias, so-called objective media is a nice poodle to have. Ok so I whined a little.

    Jeff no taxes have not gone up yet but that is not President Obama’s achilles heal. The 1.3 trillion a year deficit and the woeful job creation, less people working than four years ago are.

  • Italian Mike


    DB, ALL

    I didn’t know about the policy of not posting as someone else. I do now and I will follow the rules. I was joking around with the whole Bruno thing but we should all post our opinions as ourselves.

  • Jeff

    @ITL mike

    My opinion is that Gas prices, jobs jobs jobs and possibly a foreign country development, will be the biggest issues that affect voting moods. Congress is far more at fault but held less accountable.

  • Italian Mike

    You know in the time I have been here I have not attacked anyone personally. If you think about it it is kind of easy to do. I haven’t really been attacked personally yet but if I am so what. I will respond with good cheer or I will ignore the attack.

    Suiko makes a good point, we lower the conversation when we engage in personal attacks. This is supposed to be fun and informative. I know people will say suiko attacks people personally. I think he has mixed it up with others on occasion but he would refrain, I believe, if we had a policy to not attack personally. We have to self police ourselves.

    We will ruin a good thing if we continue to snipp at each other in this way. You guys can tell me to pound sand if you want. Hey, you may like hurling insults at each other.

  • Italian Mike

    You know my sister is a big lefty. I could not imagine calling her stupid. She has called me a closed minded wind bag on occasion but hey I am a wind bag. I’m a lot worse in person. I never shut up.

  • Italian Mike

    Look you guys if suiko did post as Jessica than I am depressed. I had this picture of Jessica in my mind. This hard charging liberal with an independent bent. Looks wise she was a cross between S.E. Cupp and Kyrstal Ball.

  • proudconservative

    My opinion of Obamacare:

    “Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”

    – C. S. Lewis

  • Paul

    If today’s Cable News was around in the 60’s I would love to hear the “Talking Heads of Cable” cover the following stories….

    John Lennon says “The Beatles are more popular than Jesus Christ”

    Muhammad Ali refuses induction into the Armed Forces

    The Cuban Missile Crisis

    The Bay of Pigs

    I would wager the same Right vs Left arguments would still be taking place.

  • DB

    Jeffie, can you show us the quote where Jim said he worked for EPA? Simple question. You made a statement and now are being asked to back it up. You can call that bullying if you want. I call it shooting holes in your post. Why don’t you “passionately” debate me by showing the quote? or you can apologize to Jim for misquoting him.

  • DB

    Jeffie, by the way the “vile and disgusting” comment came from Jessica who we all know is really suiko. He just wanted someone to agree with him on something so he decided to agree with himself. Like I said before, it appeared he was hiding behind Jessica’s skirt but turns out he was hiding behind his own skirt.

  • Suikostinger

    You want Jeff to apologize for misquoting someone, yet you tell people in here all the time that they lack brain power, are stooges and “don’t have any brain cells”…..? You’re trying too hard again DB. :)
