    Apple, the Northeast is full of haunted places, but you want more weriod per square mile? Connectutcut. There is something about CT that has more hauntings, possessions and just all around strainge stuff. Dudleytown, the Devils Hopyard, the main route to Mohegan Sun, Stratford just a tiny bit of the creepy that is CT.

    Rhode Island is strainge too, but only because it’s so small everyone is related to everyone else.

    I think I heard her stomach growl!

    Revenge is sweet, But as a Minister I have to give that up and if my ex comes over offer her food..psssst…don’t tell anyone Rats but My ex attends the Church I am at :-)

    We get along fine, I have to be honest, shes a very7 cool lady.

    @Raz sure I have another cup @(____________) :-)

  • Coffee Steve

    And Coffee Steve and Ratboy on ‘Chopped’ (Food Network), by the way.


  • Coffee Steve


    He finally is going to recover all the guns he allowed into Mexico?

    No I think they caught him on video dancing in his undies to Guns and Roses!! :shock: :lol:

    OMG!!!!!!!!!!! Now the blame game has gone to a whole new level!!!! :lol: :lol: :lol:

    MSNBC Contributor Blames Republicans for Obama’s Unconstitutional Recess Appointment

    In a segment this morning discussing the breaking news that a panel of judges on the Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia unanimously ruled that some of President Obama’s recess appointments had been made in an unconstitutional manner, MSNBC’s Thomas Roberts turned to network contributor and former Democratic Senate staffer Jimmy Williams for his reaction.

    Williams conceded the the court had ruled correctly, but rather than chiding the president for violating his oath of office with unconstitutional appointments, he blamed Senate Republicans for driving Mr. Obama to do so

  • Ratboy

    As Flip Wilson would say “Da devil made me do it!!”

  • usa8888

    Exactly right, Rat–the right wing bags are to blame for not only Obama’s appointments but also for trying to ruin our economy!!!!!!!!

  • Coffee Steve


    The big story is, if they lose the appeal then every ruling they made is void :-)

  • usa8888

    As the right wing GOP continues to collapse, there are still a few die hards on this site supporting backward thinking and erroneous policies………

    There is no way I can see them losing the appeal short of loading the bench and that will just push it all the way up and they will lose for sure.

  • usa8888

    Rat–the big story is that this type of thing has been ongoing since 1867 and it is set in precedent. Further , the right wingers in Congress were conducting a sham seession for the sole purpose of blocking meaningful legislation. Hence, Obama acted. On appeal, the Supreme Court will REVERSE the lover court decision, which was brought be some right wing GOP memebers in the first place….

  • usa8888

    Rat–by loading the bench, do you mean like the GOP gerrymandering efforts???

  • Ratboy

    Coffee Dude,
    As one thing that Obama did is found unconstitutional or abuse of power, it will open the flood gates and then look out because a whole bunch of stuff could be turned upside down! There were many different law suits filed during the first four years that will get to the bench in the next year or two. And lets not forget that Obamacare could and will end up in front of the Supreme court again!

  • AppleStinx


    Thanks for the recommendations. No wonder CT used to give me sad vibes. Were not for the state being between MA and NYC or for Bradley International, I wouldn’t have set a foot there. It sounds more attractive now with the haunted places. :smile:

  • Coffee Steve


    As stern and powerful as the courts ruling was, I think an appeal is a waste of time. Even if the SCOTUS takes it, the burden will be one Uncle Sam to show reasons it was a bad ruling. The ruling is sound and and based in law both present and past. The smackdown will stand.

    We’re out for a movie then AppleBees. Have a great evening everyone and always remember The problem with truth is, it never lies. Truth always wins in the end.

    Peace & Grace to all

    Later Gators

  • Ratboy

    Hey Coffee, bring me back some rib tips!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • usa8888

    Rat–you are somking again–I know how angry the right wing is over the Supreme Court’s Obamacare decision (Fox News almost collapsed!); but your dreams have NO basis in fact or law!!!!!!!

  • usa8888

    I agree with Coffee Steve- that’s why the right wing GOP lost the election BIG and why only 30% of the American people have a favorable opinion of the GOP!!!!!!!! The truth always wins out over lies, even if the lies are bankrolled by the Koch Bros and Adelson…………
