    DB–it is a result of warped minds like yours that the dems hammered the right wingers in the past election. People like you are quickly becoming irrelevant. By the way, if hannity or billo had any balls, they would invite Rachel on their shows–she would destroy them. She is a super intelligent person with a Ph.D and is a Rhodes scholar. I know you probably haven’t gotten past grade school, so you may not be able to comprehend this…..

  • Ratboy

    Why doesnt Rachel use her balls and invite them on to her turf? If she is sooo smart why does she have a doctorite but instead of using it hosts a low rated show on MSNBC?

  • DB

    I just read a study by NASA, NOAA and the AMA that conclusively shows that 110% of usa888’s posts are false or to use the terms of the study “the posts are the delusions of a very stupid and misinformed human being with tendencies towards moronism”. The study recommended that usa888 leave his Mom’s basement and try eating something besides cheetos and liberal main stream media kool aid.

  • Ratboy

    waiting for proof that the NRA is discounting their $35 a year membership…..oh yea HEAVILY discounting.

  • DB

    Rat, you are waiting for proof of a statement that usa888 made?? You will get that about the same time that Obama and the senate come up with a budget.

  • Hoppy

    Of all the hopeless ideologues whose rants have appeared on these pages, usa8888 is the undisputed champion. He occupies a class all his own.

  • cathy

    If USA8888 lists a link to support every one of his posts for one week, I was donate $250 to any Anti-gun non-profit group of his choice.

    I asked this a couple of days ago and no one answered. Many things can cause civil unrest. One of them being storms like Sandy. During these times multiple people at the same time will attack a home to loot it. In these cases you need more then 10 shots. During a riot you need more then 10 shots. Every time Hollywood comes out with a movie about a disease, power outage, water shortage, invasion, riots or other things that cause civil unrest. The first thing they show is the main character stealing a gun. Why do the anti-gun people in Hollywood always show people looking for guns in these cases?
    Easy because even though civil unrest may be rare, most people want a gun when they occur. And if their is a riot outside your home, what type of a gun do you want? You want a m-16 with unlimited rounds.
    Now, I’ve said a lot against banning any type of gun. It may surprise all of you to know that there is only one gun in my house. The bullets are locked in a spare box and the trigger is in another locked location in my house. It would take me at least 30 minutes to get it put together to us. But just because I don’t want one in my home right now, does not mean I think others shouldn’t have them if they want.

  • usa8888

    Billo and Hannity are afraid of coming on Rachel’s show. She’d love to have them on….

  • usa8888

    Cathy , DB and other right wing extremists on here are totally out of step with the NRA membership and the American People. All surveys show EVERYONE but skin heads and survialists (i.e., those a little left of the Third Reich)support Obama’s gun control measures. It’s all over the media. La Pierre and his white haired boss have done more to hurt the NRA in the past month than one can imagine. These two extremists will be fired shortly –wait and see…..

  • usa8888

    Cathy and DB –did you see the inarticulate t-bag woman on Piers Morgan last night calling for assault weapons to do battle with the US government? I mean these people are loony. An m-16 would as effective against the government as a squirt gun. Further, the idea is ludicrous.

    Jon Stewart and Colbert Report…the only 2 news shows to make the Top 100 Cable shows for Tuesday Jan 15.

    Once again, Jon Stewart posted some amazing numbers by drawing over 1,200,000 viewers in the key 18-49 demo….3 times more than O’Reilly.

  • Bobbyv


    You make some points on gun control but I am curious what you think about the strict gun control in Chicago and the high murder rate. I think there are some reasonable things that can be done but I do not like the demagoguery that is going on using children

  • Bobbyv


    Again with Stewart? Even he does not consider himself the same, why are you pushing this? (rhetorical)

  • Michael Page

    I have to agree with what you said about “Maddow.” in front of your house
    When John Boehner was reading the ” U S constitution preamble” on
    floor of the house of representative ,Maddow went into her little girl voice saying ” stop it ,stop it just
    stop it the U S consituation doesn’t have a Preamble”
    All of you that are “anti NRA ,anti gun ” stick a “Gun
    free home “

  • Mark2

    @ Bobby,

    Stewart covers the news and entertains just like O’Reilly does and they’re both on Cable TV. When are you going to get that through your thick head. Just because Stewart and Colbert are destroying all Fox News shows in the key demo, including O’Reilly, doesn’t mean you have to get mad…lol.

  • Michael Page

    D*mn phone
    Last line have read “sign in front of your house ”
    Not sure how ‘ in front of your house got up between ‘ Maddow and when

  • Bsotgnw

    Their wew more civilians killed in Chicago (which has extreamly tough gun laws) last year than all the coalition troups killed in Afganistan: and yes you can look that up.

    PS: just refuse to respond to nut job USA888 lets raise the level of discource

  • Bsotgnw

    sorry (were)

  • Bobbyv


    I guess Stewart is pretty thick too then right? You are bringing him in because of his ratings, you know it is a different kind of show just like Leno and Letterman. If BO was beating him you would never mention him. You are of course free to do what you want, nothing I say, or what Stewart himself says, is going to change your mind
