  • MWA

    @Doug Z. Don’t be a pr!ck!

    I have NO issues S. Papa his opinions give me pause at times, but he and I have no animosity towards each other.

    Leave these games to DB Douchebag, MWA, an whatever other alias he makes up. I have no issues responding to F-tards like Ralph and the other jerks like him. Are you in their silly degenerate league?

    Oh Jeffie , I see you’re still trying to always turn the tables on someone else. Remember you tried to say ” DB and I were one in the same ” until you were “proven wrong ,”by one of the overseer’s . Then you were “KICKED OFF” for doing what you were blaming others for doing. “Posting under different alias.”

  • Coffee Steve

    Matt Fitzgerald

  • d.d.

    I find these are very poor public relations reflections of our President.

    First, off to Vegas for a fundraiser on the day following the Egypt/Libya crisis.

    While the world is engulfed in watching Islamist rage , including the storming of Western embassies across the Middle East and the evacuation of the University of Texas at Austin, N.D. State University ,Northeast Ohio campus due to bomb threats, & a government building in Kansas City , President Obama is doing what he does best. He’s campaigning for cash.

    Last night, as the German embassy in Sudan smoldered, Tunisian police fired tear gas at US embassy rioters, the American military upgraded its presence in Yemen, investigations continued in Libya, Islamists burned American flags in London, Islamists invaded the US embassy in Tunisia, rioters went insane in Lebanon, protesters in Jordan went crazy, protests continued in Egypt, and crowds began to form in Malaysia, Bangladesh, and Iraq, the Obama campaign tweeted, “Beyoncé and Jay-Z are hosting the President in New York—your chance for two spots on the guest list ends at midnight.”

    Tonight he’s doing another fundraiser.


    Obama wasn’t elected to be campaigner in chief , but, to GOVERN.


    Night All.

  • Coffee Steve

    Night d.d., Im off tonight too
