    @ DB

    USA8888, would you please call CBS News and let them know the hostage crisis is not over.

    Well it might be now

  • Ratboy

    Hold down the fort DB, I am gonna get out of here before the legion of loons show up! :lol:


    yes mr rick i know that but the way of constitutional convention has never worked takes 34 states to agree wont happen sorry. the way i describe has been done with every adment the 1 exception i admendment was adopted via state convention after congress voted.


    admendment sorry

  • usa8888

    Hey Rat, DB and ibsles–like ibsles says–protect us from scary things—like your right wing philosophy…

  • Matthew

    They will interpet the Constitution as they want it to be interpreted not as it was intended.

    Responding to something from a billion pages ago, but…

    That whole “as it was intended” part is kind of a major point of contention between legal scholars, jurists, legislators, and voters. I’m pretty sure that most people believe that they’re interpreting the Constitution ‘as it was intended,’ including those that think it’s a living document vs. those that think it’s a dead document.

  • usa8888

    Hey ibsles, db, and rat–Cathy never answered the question as to whether you need an assault type rifle to hunt deer, and a magazine with 100 bullets???

  • usa8888

    This just in: Obama signs exec order to require all right wing House t-bags to enroll in basic economic courses at Harvard so they know what’s going on…more to follow

  • AppleStinx

    Any guesses for ratings of ‘Hannity’ on Friday? He repeated the format from the previous Friday, which was a fair and balanced gun debate forum.

  • 1nancy2

    “Cathy wants to rig the vote–it’s that simple….and so do the right wingers…” Right, usa8888, how else do you think they are going to win? Block the vote, make people stand in line for 8 hours, limit voting machines in black or Latino communities, make voters produce all kinds of ID’s, or make them stand for 4 hours to get a State issued ID, rig voting machines………….and still, after all of that craziness, they still LOST…the electoral vote by well over 100, and O. got 5 mill more votes. People know crazy when they see and hear crazy and don’t cross woman and keep your male noses out of ladies parts and lady ‘bidness’. BBL

  • Mark2

    Rasmussen – President Obama Job Approval = 54%

    NBC/Wall Street Jounal – Congressional Approval = 14%

  • usa8888

    This just in: CBS News national poll shows that 25% of the GOP favors defaulting on our debt. These are the ultra right wing kooks who have virtually NO education and extremely low IQ’s. And to think that Boehner is being held hostage by these loons…..No wonder the GOP is shrinking in its influence……

  • Mark2

    Obama is the only President in history to receive over 65 Million votes

    …and he did it twice.

    Ouch!!! That’s got a hurt!

  • Mark2

    Officials say a recently hired security officer left a firearm unattended in a Michigan charter school bathroom…

    This is just the beginning.

  • usa8888

    Hey right wingers–would you please call Fox News and Robme and ask both of them if they’d like to take credit for the big DROP in gasoline prices…or should we attribute the drop to Obama???? Come back to me……

  • ninja

    Usa888…………………who are you to tell anybody what gun they need. I use mine to hunt prairie dogs and sometimes coyotes. And dont’t me to explain it to you, because you wouldn’t understand.

  • usa8888

    Hey ninja–I have ordered a repeating bazooka and a nuclear tipped pistol for you to enhance your pleasure of shooting prairie dogs. The dogs are ordering heat seeking missles to use against your approach….ABC Sports to cover the event…more to follow…………

  • usa8888

    Will the right wingers, preferably Rove, Robme or Lian Ryan please tell me if they are taking credit for the recent drop in gas prices??????? I am waiting…………..

  • ninja

    There are more dems that are less educated than right wingers. That’s fact until proven wrong.
