    @dd we are meeting friends in Asheville next May. That is a beautiful part of the country also. You are lucky to live so close to such a beautiful place.
    Rats, hook up your smoker and come on down. I will get all of our musical friends, family and neighbors and we can eat and have a hootenanny.
    Bye, have a great one all!

    @ usa8888

    Have you been in a coma for the last four years?? “In fact, you have to spend to get out of a bad recession or depression” Record spending and we ait any better off!!!! Less people working, higher taxes on the middle class, more people on food stamps and welfare and disability than ever before, unemployment the SAME ans when he took office 4 years ago!

    Go back to mommy’s basement and play video games!

    1460 days until the next Presdient is sworn in, the countdown has begun

    The next two years are going to be brutal! The king is going to do everything in his and his parties power to demonize the R’s and win back the house so he can make areal legacy splash for the last two years of his reign! By then this country will be so divided that I am not sure it will come back together in your and my lifetimes. I fear for my grandkids my friend because they are in for a tough tough time!

  • usa8888

    Rat–the debt creation under Obama was caused by Bush’s 2 unfunded wars, drug program, and tax cuts that all the right wingers signed off on, not caring a thing about excessive, unfunded spending at that time. Rat, just tell your far fright bags in the House to STOP OBSTRUCTING and we will be fine. You guys can go back into your holes for, as Steve says, 1460 days and don’t bother us—the economy will be humming……

    Oh, and get your basements full of food as you prepare to take the government over with your pea-shooting AR-15’s………which you need to hunt deer????

  • usa8888

    Hey Rat–if the right wing kooks were in charge, you would really be fearing for your grandkids because we would be in GREAT DERPRESSION #2!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Ratboy

    Yep! Bush caused it!1 Second term and they still wont take responsability!

    We are Soooooooooooo Srewed and why? Because the loons on the left beleive what they are saying!

    One question, how about a budget from Reid? Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm?

    Cant fix Stupid!

  • usa8888

    Rat– World War 2 was still caused by the same person; that STILL hasn’t changed. Same is true with bush and his spending. Of course, if the bags in the HOUSE would stop obstructing (they are even obstructing the moderate GOP), the economy would be in much better shape. And tell the House kooks to stop sumitting budgets which gut Medicare, Social Security and attacheabsurd amendments like doing away with birth control….Thank goodness Lian Ryan is not in charge anymore…..

  • Ratboy

    One question, how about a budget from Reid?

  • Coffee Steve

    Budget? Reid?

    Whwn asked to speel Budget Harry replied “S.P.E.N.D

  • Coffee Steve

    Den Reid Relied Eye kannot due my own cheekbook :-)

  • usa8888

    The dems have furmulated many budgets, but the bags in the House won’t bening them up for a vote…

  • Ratboy

    @ usa8888
    The dems have furmulated many budgets
    WRONG WRONG AND WRONG! You really have been in a coma for the last 4 years! No budget from the senate in 3 years and the last budget Obama did was voted down by even everyone in HIS party!! Now the budget Obama owes by law this year will not be there in time to meet the legal requirements. The house on the other hand has presented a budget every year led by Paul Ryan but when sent to Reid in the senate he wont even put it on the floor for debate.


  • cathy

    Song to the tune of Yes, Jesus loves me. Now everyone sing it with me. Come on be good little Americans and step in line.

    The economy is recovering! this I know,
    For Obama tells me so.
    All the problems to Bush belong;
    for Bush was weak but Obama is strong.

    Yes, the economy is recovering!
    Yes, the economy is recovering!
    Yes, the economy is recovering!
    Obama tells me so.
