    Ok, I won’t step on your blue suede shoes….

    And my poor old tired dogs thank you.

  • Ratboy

    Obama lies about Bengazi, 4 americans dead and the 90% of the media is silent

    College football player lies about fake girlfriend, 0 dead, 0 injured and every network wont STOP covering it

  • Ratboy

    Seems reasonable to me! How could the King disagree with this?

    House GOP to vote next week on three-month increase to debt limit

    WILLIAMSBURG, Va. — House Republican leaders on Friday announced a plan to condition a three-month increase in the debt limit on the Senate committing to pass a budget by the April 15 statutory deadline.

    “Before there is any long-term debt limit increase, a budget should be passed that cuts spending,” Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) told the Republican conference in remarks to close the party’s three-day retreat in Williamsburg. “The Democratic-controlled Senate has failed to pass a budget for four years. That is a shameful run that needs to end, this year.”

    The House will also seek to prevent members of Congress from being paid if the two chambers do not pass a budget resolution.

    “We are going to pursue strategies that will obligate the Senate to finally join the House in confronting the government’s spending problem,” Boehner said. “The principle is simple: no budget, no pay.”

    USA888 is just a conservative plant sent here to make the lefties look like idiots. I’m using Cathys logic here.

  • cathy

    It’s sad. The media doesn’t want to cover real news.

    USA just in from Clinton mouth herself. The hostage crisis is not over.

    Had dare fox news tell the truth about the hostage crisis.

  • Hoppy

    o “make the lefties look like idiots.”

    If that’s what he’s doing, it’s working.

  • DB

    Redbardope, I thought you were the one making lefties look like idiots.

  • lbsles

    For those of you who are looking far a side arm, take a look at this.

  • cathy

    @rat, yes, I like that Mr. Boehner. No one gets paid unless there is a budget.

    @redbarsoup are you a conservative plant too?

  • AppleStinx
  • RedBarSoup

    oohhh man! You guys are good! You got me!

  • cathy

    Hey everyone guess what’s on HBO right now. The 2004 Climate Change liberal scare show, “The Day After Tomorrow” You know the one, it’s about how Global Warming will cause the next ice age. And it will do it so fast that we won’t be able to escape to the south in time.

  • RedBarSoup

    Oh NO! A fictional movie. Let’s attack it!! gogogogo! Cathy go! Oh wait, there’s plenty of “conservative” movies that are also made and played on television, yet lets only make light of the liberal movies like Cathy just did. AHAHAHAHA! While we are at it, let’s attack Abraham Lincoln the Vampire Hunter and say it’s anti AB and that it makes him look like an idiot…HOW DARE THEM LIBERALS! Man, people will make a big deal about the dumbest things ever…of course, unless it fits their agenda. Kind of like how Fox News attacks Hollywood as a whole all the time, but as soon as a Hollywood star agrees with their agenda, then they are a saint and bring them on their shows.

  • cathy

    @Apple ,,,,, I know it I know it. I know that Lincoln, Vampire hunter was the true story of Lincoln.

    @red you knew what you your walking into.

  • usa8888

    Fox “News”, the propaganda arm of the right wing GOP, continues to run false and misleading headlines regarding the public’s backing of the NRA. The public in fact backs Obama’s gun policy by a significant margin in all national polls!!!!!!!!!

  • AppleStinx


    I thought I’d drag Suikostinger out of “retirement” with that picture. :smile:

  • Ratboy

    Now usaa8888 is posting reruns! I guess he wants to see if he can get better ratings the second time around. Seeing it twice REALLY proves the point………………………You Cant Fix Stupid! :shock:

    NBC Poll: Public Blames Parents, Hollywood Over Guns for Violence

    Americans place more blame for mass shootings on parents and Hollywood than they do on guns, a surprising new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll reveals.

    Asked how much responsibility several choices might bear for the shootings that have taken place in Tucson, Ariz.; Aurora, Colo.; and Newtown, Conn., guns came in fifth.

    The top choice was “parents not paying enough attention to what is going on in their children’s lives” — 83 percent said that was “a great deal” or a “good amount” responsible. Only 4 percent said “none at all.”

    However, support for stricter controls is significantly less today than it was during the 1990s, when more than 60 percent supported stricter laws, topping out at 78 percent in 1990.

    Another interesting finding of the NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll: Asked how they view the National Rifle Association, 24 percent said “very positive” and 17 percent said “somewhat positive,” while 20 percent were “neutral.” That’s up from 21 percent “very positive” in January 2011, and significantly higher than in June 1995, when just 12 percent said “very positive.”

    Also, those who view the NRA as “very negative” is at 23 percent, down from 30 percent in July 1995.

  • cathy

    Hey, don’t pick on AB vampire hunter. That was a cool movie. Abe was a bad a**. Those vamps were using slaves for food but Abe saved them all. That train screen was outstanding. If it would have been called Paul Bunyan vampire hunter if would have been a block buster.

    Red, I was flipping the channels and there it was on HblowO. I find it funny that liberal say conservatives use scare tactics all the time. But when we point out that liberals especially the ones that run Hollywood use scare tactics liberal get all upset.

  • Ratboy

    @ Chriscee
    Asked how they view the National Rifle Association, 24 percent said “very positive” and 17 percent said “somewhat positive,” while 20 percent were “neutral.” That’s up from 21 percent “very positive” in January 2011

    So if you add it up it comes to 61% that are at WORST neutral which means that a MAXIMUM would be 39% view the NRA in a negative light.

    HMMMMMMMMMMMMM, maybe usa8888 ran out of fingers and toes when he was doing HIS counting.
