    Raz–would you like to use bazookas, too?????

    No thanks USA8888, I trained on Stringers and LAWS when I was in the service. Why would I want to fire such an antique? Not that I don’t like antiques….but comic books, fire king dishes and Ovaltine decoder badges are more my speed.

    Speaking of comic books, USA888, you remind of one of the charactors in the Capt Marvel comics…Mr Mind….he’s worm with a radio around his neck.

  • Raz

    Okay guys, now I’m just getting mean. Mercury must be in retrograde. Sorry about that. Really lets get back on track, less back biting and more logical fighting.

    “There are many questions that are unanswered, and the answers that you’ve given this morning are not satisfactory to me,” McCain said, particularly pointing to the security at the U.S. consulate. “The American people deserve to know answers. And they certainly don’t deserve false answers.”

    And what UN Ambassador Susan Rice said following the attack was false information, he said, further questioning why “the administration still refuses to provide the full text of the e-mails regarding the deletion of references to Al Qaeda and terrorism in the talking points.”

    “You ought to have your facts straight,” McCain told Clinton. “Here we are, four months later, and we still don’t have the basic information.”

    Clinton said she understood McCain’s “very strong” feelings. “We just have disagreement,” she said. “We have a disagreement about what did happen and when it happened with respect to explaining the sequence of events.”

  • Ratboy

    And the left wing media begins!! :lol: :lol:

    Jake Tapper: Clinton’s Emotional Testimony A Symptom Of ‘The Exhaustion She’s Been Suffering From’

    Rand Paul Brutalizes Hillary Clinton: ‘Had I Been President’ I Would Have Fired You

  • Ratboy

    Just a quick recap of my prediction of what Hillary would say today (sorry Jeffie, I know you hate it when I am right)

    Disses Rice: ‘I Wasn’t Involved In Talking Points’… I KNOW NOTHING!!!!
    SecState: I never saw requests for more security… I SEE NOTHING!!!

    BINGO!!!! :shock: :lol: :twisted:

  • Mikey O

    I just want to know why we haven’t heard from the people that were there on the ground. Seem like they have been put into Witness protection or held in solidarity confinement by the state dept. MM maybe the news media will do their job ?? LOL


    I had still get into a good university for the spring semester? Really! Wow and I thought you have to apply to get into a good school. I thought you had to take a test or something. I thought there were admission requirements. Boy, I’m really stupid. I’m leaving right now to enroll in a classes. I think I’ll take a econ class at Harvard and an engineering class at MIT.

  • Ratboy


    Can you sign me up for a little something at Yale while you are at it?? Your choice, I am not picky! :lol:

    Raz–would you like to use bazookas, too?????

    I wanna heavy duty flame thrower :lol:


    Hey USA8888, if conservatives are dumb, then let’s force someone to take an IQ test before they vote. If you are under 100, you don’t get to vote. You should be for that?
    Oh wait, it’s liberal that passed the voters assistance act which not only opened up voting to the mentally challenged but allows them to be assisted by a helper in the voting booths.

    PS: @ Rats

    You cannot walk into any gun store around here and find any guns on the shelves, they have so many on back orders, they are gone before any shipments come in. Can you say backfire?

  • usa8888

    PHDINBS–the problem is that the right wing GOP largely consists of racists, anti-government types, religious fanatics, and closed-minded, non-inndependent thinking people–some of the worst elements in our society. Did I mention the greedy millionaires (not all by any means, but some..)
    This is not to suggest that free-loaders are acceptable on the left or right. They are not.

  • Coffee Steve

    I bet the TSA is happy now. They don’t have to see me pass through the naked body scanner anymore :twisted:

  • Ratboy

    There it is AGAIN!!!!!!

    I asked my special forces nephew if he saw Zero Dark Thirty yet, he said that was the best comedy he’s seen this year :-)

    I stopped at a local pawn shop last week to see the owner who I have know for some time. I said “I would like to look at your guns” He pulled up the sleeves on his shirt and said these are the ONLY guns left in the store!!! :lol:
