    Sorry but just had to say.
    As far as global warming.
    If one cannot see that mankind does not have an effect on our planet, then one is blind. To talk about taxes and regulations is idiotic.
    Can we be real?

  • Dreamer

    Or was I over run.

    Everyone arguing that the Democrats stated the KKK: You’re right; however, it should be noted that they also helped to end segregation. Look at JFK and the Ole Miss riots. You are lying to yourself if you think that this Democratic Party is the same as the “Dixiecratic” Democrats of the South during the late 1950’s to mid 1960’s. Mississippi Governer Ross Barnett was a Democrat fighting againist a Democrat in 1962. Just as it would be foolish to link today’s Democrats with those from the 1960’s, it would be just as foolish to try and link the Abraham Lincoln era Republicans with today’s Republicans. A Republican Party that garnered attention for a National Postal Service and using federal funding to establish the Transcontinental Railroad to the Pacific Ocean would not be very favorable in a strongly divisive Tea Party and Establishment oriented Republican Party. It is quite apparent that while many of the beliefs that were established during the creation of our two prominent parties exist still today; however, it is in fact simply a switch of the two parties’ names that differs.

    “it should be noted that they also helped to end segregation. Look at JFK and the Ole Miss riots. You are lying to yourself if you think that this Democratic Party is the same as the “Dixiecratic” Democrats of the South during the late 1950?s to mid 1960?s”

    You are right, the party is worse.

  • Dreamer

    Ps. So are the other side.

  • Jon


    I’m confused. Which Democratic Party is worse?

  • Jon


    Sorry, there are three Democratic Parties mentioned. Worst?

  • ninja

    Thanks Arch,……………………and Clinton wanted armed guards in all schools.

  • Dreamer


    You tell me. As far as I see nobody is helping the moderates or independants.

    “Sorry, there are three Democratic Parties mentioned. Worst?”

    Are we now split? Sorry, that was first read.

  • ninja

    I would like a socially moderate (center right) and fiscal conservative.

  • Dreamer

    PPs. Glad to have coffee and see a flower. Whether it dangles or not.
    I think I saw faith.

  • tony petres

    Really getting to be a drag listening to what “non” NRA members are saying about the organization. Out of touch? I doubt it. And to the other “arms expert” who commented on how AR-15’s (held by 2nd amendment supporters) are pathetic against F-16s and nukes, I can only ask, what are you smokin’? Do you really think ATF would send out an F-16 to disarm a lawful gun owner? Never happen. That kind of work requires boots on the ground. Are you up for that? And neither will the majority of police.

    NRA, including ever-growing numbers of women and minorities, does one thing and only one thing very well. They look out for my right to keep my firearms, period. If you can’t handle that, why don’t you start a movement to repeal the 2nd A.? Or join the NRA and execute a coup. But do something besides aggravating millions of law-abiding gun owners who simply love their hard won freedoms.

    “Never happen. That kind of work requires boots on the ground. Are you up for that?”

    Do you work for the tsa?

  • Dreamer

    Liberals are not
    Conservatives are not
    I am pissed

  • Hillbilly

    Will MSNBC hire Newt?

    Outspoken liberal Dennis Kucinich has found a new home—at the Fox News channel.


    Gutfeld said he joined the short people of FNC. :lol:

  • Hillbilly

    I bet Faith3 was involved in this. ;)


    EVERETT, Mass. (AP) — The principal of a Massachusetts high school was suspended Tuesday for two days without pay for appearing in a spoof of “The Terminator” movies that was shown to students, which some people thought was inappropriate.

  • Hillbilly

    I hope Doug Z doesn’t get one. :razz:

    Social innovator Leslie Bradshaw joins new venture transforming text into living video


    Quite literally, a Guide user will take text from an article and use the app to convert that text into audio, which is read by a digital avatar.

  • Hillbilly

    :( I blame AppleStinx :mad:

    He wouldn’t get a TV provider that carried the show. It was one viewer shy from being renewed. I officially declare war on Syfy & AppleStinx. :grin:

  • Dreamer

    But yet, we have graphs and charts.
    As if anyone actualy listens.
    As if anyone actually cares.
    as if….

    Do we just keep on taking it?
