  • Dreamer

    I believe that the Bush tax cuts need to expire. Up and down the board.

  • PoodlePower

    @Sicilian Papa
    “I have been poor recently ….”

    Well said.

  • TheBoss1

    I agree, eggman. The extreme and illogical hatred towards Pres. Obama is primarily racially motivated. There are muther*@*%$# on this site who think the president is Islamic. I know some righties on this sight hate to hear this, but it’s the truth. But their own words condemn them.

  • TheBoss1

    @Dreamer … I AGREE. Let all the tax cuts expire!

  • TheBoss1

    @Sicilian Papa … you said you “have been poor recently.”

    Well get off your azz, dude. It’s all your %$#@&^% fault that you’re poor. You just have no work ethic. You lazy, worthless POS. Don’t you realize that anyone can make it into the middle class (and earn between $200,000 – $250,000) if only you took personal responsibility for yourself.

  • Sicilian Papa

    It appears we had a terror attack on 9/11. That is a huge story. Why didn’t we have better security at our embassies? Especially in a place like Libya. The attackers were heavily armed. The Prez. of Libya says that it was a terror attack. Susan Rice says it was not. Who is telling the truth?

  • Dreamer


    “But their own words condemn them.”

    I do not know what to call it. Sometimes people say things on the internet that they would not say in person.

  • Sicilian Papa



    Did you read my critique of the lefties on Sunday morning. You are entertaining. LOL

  • TheBoss1

    I agree, Dreamer.

    Anonymity allows a lot of internet posters to have much larger balls than they actually do in real life.

  • TheBoss1

    @Sicilian Papa … no one group of people are easier to mock than right-wing conservatives. I just turned the right-wing argument around on you and your situation, all done tongue-in-cheek. But the sad joke is that many on the right probably really do feel that way.

  • TheBoss1

    @Sicilian Papa … don’t you know that anyone who fails only has himself to blame? There is no reason for anyone to be poor. People who are poor have no personal responsibility and do not take care of their own lives. They perceive themselves to be victims and are just jealous of successful Americans. Anyone can become an entrepreneur and start his or her own business. If they need start-up capital, just ask your parents for a loan. And, before long, they will enter the middle class and earn between $200,000 – $250,000 a year.

  • TheBoss1

    No, Sicilian Papa, I did not read your critique of lefties on Sunday. I have been busy taking care of my dying mother. She’s currently under Hospice care, which is being paid for by Medicare. Therefore, according to Mitt Romney’s logic, since my mother’s health care is paid for by the government, she obviously perceives herself as a victim and has no personal responsiblity.

  • Coffee Steve

    This is posted as a non-politcal question.

    I have a last question tonight. We had 2 navy Seals, an Ambassador, and another brutally murdered on American Soil, why isn’t anyone asking in the Media, what is going to be done about that? Are their bodies going to just rot and nothing be done?

    We had another attack, technically on American Soil on another 9-11 and no one’s cares about that? So what message does that leave for the terrorist that they are free to attack our embassies and nothing will be done? Black Hawk Down part 2. UBL took that as a sign America was weak and nothing would be done, and we paid a heavy price.

    Has anyone heard anyone, in the MSM, Fox, anywhere that question asked?

  • Coffee Steve

    BTW..October 3rd is the first debate guys

  • Sicilian Papa

    Too many people do blame someone else when things don’t go well. I have some advantages that do help even though times are still tough. I bought all the equipment for the construction company myself. I split the cost with my partner. The economy tanked in our industry worse than other sectors of the economy.

    I have some other talents that help to make ends meet. That is what I mean by advantages that others might not have.

  • Coffee Steve

    @S. Papa
    I have some other talents that help to make ends meet

    A male stripper? :twisted: sorry I had too LOL

  • Bsotgnw

    Boss, no responce would you rather I use BLS stats or are your misrepresentations of Rommney as far as you wanto go

  • Sicilian Papa

    No, people pay me to keep my clothes on.



    The critiques were all positive tongue n’ cheek.

  • Ralph Hahn

    >>> Fox & Friends prankster rips Fox News <<<

    Ooooh. Ripped by an a-hole 20-year old.

    And, he's voting for Romney because he lost a bet on a basketball game.

    He might as well shouted out "Baba Booey." Dumb r@tard.

  • Ralph Hahn

    @TheBoss1: We regulars here know and empathize with you over your mother’s weakening health. Prayers have gone out for her, you and your family.

    I’m sure that you didn’t mean to use her plight as as an example of Mitt Romney’s logic.
