    @ I AM drudge dude

    Drudge or Sludge???? :shock: :twisted:

  • Ratboy
  • Coffee Steve

    I’ll have to type quietly, shes reading now

    *White House Strongly denies there was no protest going on in Libya before the attack.

    Problem is the State Department says ask the Justice Department, and the Justice Department says they won’t answer any questions. Transparency at its best

    Sure would be nice if we had a press that sought the truth instead of a cover the butt syndrome they have developed.

  • Coffee Steve


    Sludge is my Middle name :mrgreen:

  • DB

    RAT, good for you man!!! 30 years is quite impressive!! My son’s six months have been very hard and I am proud of him. I thank God everyday he met this sponsor who has instructed him on the disease of alcoholism. My son understand himself and the disease much better now. However, as they say, one day at a time!!!

  • Coffee Steve

    @DB, Ratboy, AP076 and anyone who has or is trying to overcome any addiction, it may be a daily struggle ladies and gentlemen, But all those who have went through or going through it, you have my heartfelt respect and prayers and hopes.

    In my lines of work, I have seen it many times, counseled, and even at times ministered to some with various addictions. All of us are under attacks from life 24×7. Not easy I know, but we all can overcome them.

  • Coffee Steve

    You’ll soon see this broadcast (its on my news wire feed for now)

    *LSU campus evacuated because of bomb threat

    (RNN) – Louisiana State University, located in Baton Rouge, LA says that a bomb threat has been reported on campus and to evacuate immediately.

  • d.d.


    White House Strongly denies there was no protest going on in Libya before the attack.

    – –

    Sounds like BS to me. Just a protest? No planning? You can’t spin it !

    A Libyan commander told CBS News that a convoy of 22 vehicles, two of them armored, raced from the U.S. consulate down a road to a safe house a mile and a half away.

    But the safe house they fled to — which was supposed to be in a secret location — had become a target.”

    Libyan officials say it’s clear from the second assault on the safe house that those behind the attack were determined that no Americans made it out alive.


    Voter rolls in Ohio are bloated, experts say

    Columbus Dispatch

    Of the Buckeye State’s 7.8 million registered voters, nearly 1.6?million are regarded as “inactive.” That generally means either they haven’t voted in at least four years or they apparently have moved.

    What can Ohio’s chief elections official, Secretary of State Jon Husted, do to clean up the voter rolls?

    Not enough, he says.

    In a Feb. 10 letter, he asked U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder for a personal meeting to discuss how to balance seemingly conflicting federal laws so he could pare Ohio’s dirty voter list without removing truly eligible voters.

    “Common sense says that the odds of voter fraud increase the longer these ineligible voters are allowed to populate our rolls,” Husted said. “I simply cannot accept that.”

    Holder’s office has never replied.

    Good afternoon,

    been busy with yardwork

    @Coffee Steve
    They already caught Mr. Ban Bloomberg after preaching about turning off their Air Conditioners cooling his Parked SUV with a homemade AC stand in his driveway, you can bet the media will be watching to see if Mr. Can Ban ever has a large drink in his presence. Question is will any media report it if he does?

    Bloomberg did that because of the car idle ordinance. I doubt Bloomberg practices what he preaches.

    I have to admit the ONLY time I voted Democrat (twice) was for Ed Koch when he was Mayor of NYC. I had to respect a guy who took the subway to work like most other NY’ers.

    After watching last week news. I was again disappointed how the reporting is being managed. People without open minds actually believe these bias reporters. After comparing all the cable channels only one comes out Fair, that is Fox News. I get so tired of the Bias. Journalism had a grade of F. Want to to listen to real News & facts. Where have all the real reporters gone???

  • Coffee Steve

    Sounds like BS to me. Just a protest? No planning? You can’t spin it !

    Like my Dad used to say when I would ask if the barn needed cleaning, he would say, stick your nose in the wind, if it stinks, it needs cleaning.

    The government BS is the only true shovel ready job there is anymore.

    Gone to Journalism’s graveyard everyone. When will they learn? When will they ever learn?

  • Coffee Steve

    Ed Koch

    I liked ED as well, no nonsense and very honest most of the time

  • Coffee Steve

    Gone to Journalism’s graveyard everyone.

    HEY!!! I beg to differ Sir, some of us are simply retired :lol:

    The Obama admin knew three days ahead of time there was an issue, “no protests” of course they were not going to protest before hand, the terrorists aren’t stupid, unlike the prez. So the ambassidor is dead because no precausions were taken or security increased. And the main stream media is spinning as fast as they can.

    The most recent polls say a majority of people don’t want Obama care. I sure as heck don’t. My health insurance has gone up 240 dollar for the year and that dosnt count the 800 dollar deductable I have to come up with first and the 20 percent coinsurances. Oh thanks Mr Prez,where is my savings or is going to the dead beat occupier.

  • Coffee Steve


    If you plan your parties, or a convention please make sure the people planning know what they are doing

    *NOT JUST THE SHIPS: Fighter jets in Dem convention’s military montage were Turkish, not American

  • Coffee Steve

    Love this story :-) Hope it brings a smile to you

    My wife and I befriended a elderly Black Gentlemen down the street and bought and installed a Air Condidtioner early summer for him. He just knocked on my door and peeked in my door and said “Steve? I could sure use a new heating system this year, and he just started laughing and got to laughing so hard he started coughing, I love that guy LOL

    The man can flat out cook too

    This shifting campaign calculus has produced a split in Romney’s message. His talk show interviews and big ad buys continue to offer a straightforward economic focus aimed at traditional undecided voters. But out stumping day to day is a candidate who wants to talk about patriotism and God

    While I don’t think Mormonism should be an issue, if Romney wants to make “God” an issue, I think the media should ask him which god? The God from christianity or the one he worships that lives on the planet Kolob

  • Coffee Steve

    I have a little job to do, see you around 5pm


  • son of coffee

    Dad when you get back, my cell phone is dead, and I know you will read this when you get back. I went fishing all night see ya. bye
