    Y, the beat goes on.

    It’s OK to kill folks with bombs & bullets, but not chemical or bio weapons. :???:

    Syria has loaded chemical weapons into bombs; awaiting attack order from Assad

    “The possible use of chemical weapons would be completely unacceptable for the whole international community and if anybody resorts to these terrible weapons I would expect an immediate reaction from the international community,” Rasmussen told reporters.

    Read more here.

  • RedBarSoup

    What I can’t comprehend is how someone can watch either station and think the other station is unfair and biased……just sheeples being sheeples I guess.

  • Hillbilly

    I’m telling you long term this will hurt Nobama.

    Presidential aides have even encouraged speculation that Obama is willing to let the economy go over the “fiscal cliff” if necessary and gamble that the public blames Republicans for any fallout.

    Read more here.

    Nobama can’t make bills. He fools around & PO’s congress they won’t make any bill to undo the mess next year. Revenue/tax bills have to come from the House. The GOP will have the upper hand if they go over the fiscal cliff.

    I don’t think they will go over the cliff. They will have some half a$$ agreement that doesn’t solve the problem, then pat themselves on the back.

  • Hillbilly

    Bill O only cable news show on the list.

    Is this link working? :cool:

    Again “The O’Reilly’ Factor” made it as the only cable news channel program on the daily list.


    Yep! I posted it too. Want to make sure the liberals can see it. ;)

  • Hillbilly

    The Five number 2 in the 25-54 demo. :cool:

    I don’t like their new set. The table sucks IMO.

  • Dreamer

    hillbilly, Sorry but you come by your nickname justly.
    If you call names will never be taken seriously. And if someone found out identity?

  • Dreamer

    Ps. no threat. Did not mean that way.

  • Dreamer

    Just cannot see how either Mitt or Obama are differen!?

  • Hillbilly

    Hannity is probably safe because of the big contract he just signed. Greta might be a little worried. She better hope Paula Zahn is gainfully employed. ;)

    To early for FNC to panic. I would move Hannity to 10pm & have a new show at 9pm. The new show could be, well I have no idea. :???:

  • Dreamer

    CNN here is your chance!

  • AppleStinx

  • Dreamer

    Pps. RedBarSoup,
    If I could vote up your comment, I would.

  • Dreamer

    Ppps. Have to give that one to Apple. Bravo!

    @Joe88 calling MSNBC viewers “morons” says more about you than about those who watch MSNBC
    Boss, i know you say you’re a teacher of children but man, you must be a big stoner burnout or something (not that i have anything against weed, yeah, good stuff) to have forgotten all the times you’ve come on here saying stuff like, “righties on here are gonna slash their throats” or “slit their wrists” or “commit suicide when mondays numbers come out!” etc..etc.. Remember? You are one of many BIGDIKHEDS on here and yet, you have something to say about the use of the word “morons”? you pussycat.

    Good Morning Everyone

    *There is BIG background buzz on Syria using Chemical Weapons soon and the Oil market is, shall we say “Volatile”. Reports are they have loaded chemicals in weapons and about to use them. The US has said that is a red line they will not tolerate.

    *Louisville will keep its football coach Charlie Strong who turned down the job at Tennessee. 8 am press conference scheduled to announce a new multi-year, 4.1 Million a year contract with Louisville.

    The Egyptian army has begun to clear demonstrators and media organisations from outside the presidential palace in Cairo.
