    Oh Folks the Obama team must be real real nerveous!!! I have been home for 45 minutes and I have received 3 count em 3 robo calls for Obama!
    But here is the interesting part. I live in Michigan! A state that has not had ads from either side in weeks! Obama pulled out because they “had us in the bag” And Romney pulled out because they could spend the money better where they had a better chance.
    I have not had a presidental race robo call in weeks! I do beleive they ae beginning to fear a Romney landslide similar to Reagan/Carter. (I am not saying it will be a landslide)

    Debbie Spendalot has been running ads too! (I think she will win no problem unfortunatly)

  • Coffee Steve

    @Scott Wareham

    Win a new President

    :-) I sure hope so


    LOL…thanks for the song

  • Coffee Steve


    Allred will never get it un-sealed, but she can pull a Harry Reid and make wild accusations, I’d call her a name that fits, but I can’t spell it LOL

    REPORT: Navy plans to install lasers on ships within 2 years…

    Expect to see the Navy using lasers on ships within the next couple of years.

    Rear Adm. Matthew Klunder, chief of the Office of Naval Research, tells Wired that they have pushed up the timetable from four years to two to install laser weapons on board ships.

    “We’re well past physics,” Klunder told the magazine. “We’re just going through the integration efforts. Hopefully, that tells you we’re well mature, and we’re ready to put these on naval ships.”

  • Sicilian Papa

    Yeah…agreed unless the future President beat his wife or was abusive towards her it is not something I want to know. A lot of people have problems.

    Of course the Prez. has a history of releasing divorce records on opponents. What comes around goes around.

    He poked fun at the Donald and Trump has been out to get him ever since.

  • Coffee Steve

    @Sicilian Papa

    One the beat rumors abounded about a one time aid to Mrs O that the President may have close contact with, guess we’ll find out if it was true or not, but either way the Trump stuff and Allred stuff is sillyland at its best.

  • Coffee Steve

    ^One the beat

    On the beat, rumors

  • Sicilian Papa


    Mark 2

    Where is my daily dose of Mark 2? “Obama wins in a landslide.”

    Where is my daily dose of Mark 2? “Obama wins in a landslide.”

    Be careful what you ask for Dude!!! When he comes around we are sending him to you!!!!! :shock:

  • TZCA

    Yup, the topic is too big. I would just add that the standard of living for lower income people now versus 120 years ago has as much (if not more) to do with that, uhm …. technology …. to harness and distribute energy, as it has to do with our present money policies. That adds another layer of problems for our future, which is the availability of and convertibility to these energy sources.

  • Coffee Steve

    @Matthew & TZCA

    Horses? They are easy to feed, easy to park, and only put out gas and doesn’t drink it :twisted:

  • TZCA

    lol CoffeeSteve.

    Horses are the way to go. They just eat so much darn grass. And those bundles of grass are so heavy!

  • Sicilian Papa

    I may not like Trump all that much but what he said in response to some derogatory comments made about him by Rosie O’Donnell are classic.

    The reporter asks Trump about the O’Donnell comments, Trump replies,

    “Rosie…Rosie is an animal…an animal.”

    No one except Trump could have said that and got away with it. O’Donnell is a protected minority and you don’t say those kind of things about a protected minority. The left would destroy most people for such comments.

  • Coffee Steve

    They just eat so much darn grass

    Yep, but that would save gas and greenhouse gasses, because we wouldn’t need any lawn mowers (pssssst… Rats is too lazy to cut grass anyway, I heard he installed artificial grass on his lawn :mrgreen:

  • TZCA

    My guess is that CoffeeSteve is getting tired of reading my posts :shock:

    I think would be tired of reading them too if I wasn’t the one writing them.

  • TZCA

    lol at artificial grass. At least it doesn’t turn brown in the fall and winter.

  • Coffee Steve

    My guess is that CoffeeSteve is getting tired of reading my posts

    Nah…happy to have ya aboard

  • HRJ

    Can’t we all just get along?

    Part One of the heavy lifting is over.

    Part Two of the heavy lifting is November 6th. Do your part and vote for Obama.

  • TZCA

    By the way CoffeeSteve, I just spent 45 minutes shearing small branches off the tree around my RV parked outside (had some heavy rains the last few days breaking a bunch of branches). Do you need another 250 lbs of brush to burn? Free of charge. You just cover shipping from CA. Come on! Great deal!
