    Instead of Killing Big Bird, I’d be ok just sending him to Gitmo…

  • Coffee Steve

    A Very detailed Jobs report with new Un-Employment numbers are due out Friday, be a good day for Obama to put out another tape huh? :P

    Papa, if you are really Sicilian I am surprised you are not a supporter of our President.94% of blacks support him and he is only half black.If you check your history Sicilians have at least that much black blood and some a lot more.

    You had better Google that one. southern part of Italy is mostly of North African or Mid- eastern, or as Europeans call them Asians. the North would be European.

  • Doug Z

    Coffee Steve

    Send Big Bird to fox, not cable

  • Dave

    Looks like someone is impersonating me.Obama told the truth last night and Romney lied his a-s off.What a low life scum Romney is.

    what did he lie about dave, specifics, not hyperbole and name calling or is that all you liberals have!!

  • Doug Z

    Sam

    If you break that down, it works out to over $50 million a year “Sesame Street” is taking in from all that merchandising.

    Yep, that one-percenter Big Bird makes about four times what Mitt Romney does annually and yet Barack Obama still wants you and I to still carry his freight

    I guess that’s Obama’s idea of “economic patriotism.”

  • DB

    Poor Chris Mathews, he was hoping for another tingle up his leg but got a kick in the crotch instead. :-(

  • Sam

    @ Doug Z,

    “Shows like Sesame Street are multi-million dollar enterprises capable of thriving in the private market”

    So you want to hand it to another big corporation so they can juice our kids brains to make more profits ?

    Lets just change the Muppets names, Big Bird will become Goldman Sachs , Cookie Monster will become Bank of America and Elmo will be AT&T…

  • Coffee Steve

    @Doug Z
    From Sam

    Lets just change the Muppets names, Big Bird will become Goldman Sachs , Cookie Monster will become Bank of America and Elmo will be AT&T

    Sorry Doug, but that was as witty and great comeback I have seen LOL, Kudo’s to Sam

  • Sam

    Besides that whatever Big Bird cost the government at least he’s effective and beneficial to the society.

    Romney’s solution to balance to budget is cut benefits to the average Joe and poor people such as Big Bird. But he won’t dare to cut the cost of the wars and bombs, won’t dare to tax millionaires and billionaires, won’t cut the subsidies to oil companies…

  • Sicilian Papa

    @

    dave

    The liberal dave, I am half Sicilian and yes the Moors invaded Sicily and forced the locals to mate.

    I learned that from a movie not the history channel. I am also half Polish it is very confusing.

  • Sicilian Papa

    Are we talking about Big Bird? What’s next that evil Romney will want to paint Barney green.

  • DB

    liberal Dave, how racist of you!!!

    Sam, how occupy wall street of you. Those evil corporations will turn Big Bird into Gordon Gecko. That is pretty lame.

  • DB

    Sam he will cut the subsidies to Solyndra etc which is a whole lot more than cutting oil subsidies. Oh yeah and we do get oil and gas from those companies as compared to what we got from Solyndra, Fisker etc. I don’t think these companies were very beneficial to society like Big Bird.

    Lets just change the Muppets names, Big Bird will become Goldman Sachs , Cookie Monster will become Bank of America and Elmo will be AT&T…

    change it to GE ,NBC, MSMBC or the CEO of GE the BHO adviser. BHO will make sure his friend ,CEO of GE gets Gov money and they can brain wash the kids together. Oh, They are now, with BHO money.

  • DB

    Coffee, you really think that was a clever post. Sounded like a lot of the crap we heard from hippies in the 60′s. Ridiculous comparison and hyperbole and made little sense. Disagree with you on this one buddy. It was just old OWS rhetoric.

    Still like you though Sam and am looking forward to being part of the entourage, its just I have heard junk like this a million times. Not original.I thought it was a little beneath you. Just my opinion.

  • Doug Z

    Sam $900 billion to his green friends that can not make money.

  • Sicilian Papa

    @

    DB

    90 billion in subsides ugh that is a lot of money even to liberals. Let Obama bring up the auto bailout. They have a 30 billion dollar loan they can’t pay back to the government. I would like another 60 million people to know that.

  • Doug Z

    Sicilian Papa
    Romney will want to paint Barney green. He is already green money machine.

  • Sicilian Papa

    @

    Doug Z, DB

    They are actually trying to make Big Bird the issue of the debate.
