  • Ralph Hahn

    The late-James Brown, Godfather of Soul, may have been able to “hit it and quit,” so I will attempt to do it as well.

    “Maciel…take me to the bridge. BRIDGE!”

    See ya.

  • Ralph Hahn

    @James: >>> Msnbc still going strong <<<

    And Avis car rental is STILL NUMBER TWO.

    NOW! I'm GONE!

    LMFAO! Was this on purpose or……?

    President OBAMA tweeted a pic of him sitting with a pirate.

    Fox News- “OOOOOH THE HUMANITY!!!!”

    Fox Reported that the President has NO time for Israeli Prime Minister but has time to sit with a pirate for a photo op.

    One problem, the pirate pic was taken in May 2009.

    Nice try Fox News!

    Fox & Friends Issues Correction After Using 3 Year Old Photo To Rip Obama

    The chyron which captioned the image reinforced the notion that Obama was shirking his official duties as President of the United States. “Too busy for Israel: President Finds Time For Pirate, Letterman,” the chyron read.

    Shortly after the broadcast, Fox & Friends tweeted this correction:
    tweet wont post but admitted it was from a 2009 photo

    @Grandpa Ron

    Its a combination of Both, Foxes numbers are fairly steady and 99% of the time, way out in front anyway. As we get closer to the election and yes, due to the conventions viewership is up for all of them and will remain that way through Mid-November.

  • Coffee Steve

    Its now gone completely off the cliff

    This is a real story

    *Secret Service investigating Texas man — for lynching his empty chair!

  • Coffee Steve

    Since we are talking about a deceptive Pirate picture, may we discuss our own Govenment blaming the death of 4 American’s on a video and telling (I’ll be kind) un-truths about it being an attack and with NO protesters for days?

    So did they fall asleep at the wheel? They had warnings, and even Chris Stevens sent out memos he was afraid for his life, yet NO security?

  • Ratboy

    Hey Coffee, if you put 11 players on the football field and I put 66 players against you and I hold you to a tied score………….do I have the superior ground game??? Jus askin

  • Ratboy

    Did I mention that I won the super bowl 4 years ago?

  • Coffee Steve

    @Rats

    Yes :-)

  • Coffee Steve

    @Ratboy
    Did I mention that I won the super bowl 4 years ago?

    SO!!! My Reds are going to win the World Series this year

  • Jeff

    -Ralph, as usual instead of reading comprehension and adult exchange, just another display of continued rudeness and silly posts. It’s okay, im over the fighting with you, whatever pops your corn, I had my fun, and you go right on having yours.
    I saw your FB page I liked the Chris Christy pic (even though I do not agree with his politics) its pretty cool photo op.
    Bravo!
