    Bashir, if you can believe, it is a lower life form than Chrissy tingles, usa zero and jeffiee poo poooo.

    And we all know how low usa zero and jeffiee poo poooo are

  • Ratboy

    In the imortal words of Johnny Carson
    “HOW LOW ARE THEY??????” :lol: :lol: :lol:

  • Ratboy

    Actually I think Ed McMahon might be the one that said it all the time!

  • 1966

    gas went up to 3.49 a gallon today it’s went up 66 cents in 2 weeks.

  • cathy

    Liberal redefine Transitive Logic.
    Obama pushes for defense cuts. Defense cuts cause contraction.
    Obama don’t cause the contraction.

    Thanks for the workpress information Apple.

    OMG, have any of you conservatives seen how the liberal press is reacting to the news that for the first time in 12 years Fox news ratings took a drip? You would think someone found a cure for cancer, heart disease and a number of other diseases.

    Israeli may have bombed a Syrian convoy of military weapons. Will the liberal media lead with this story now or will Fox news ratings drop still be the headline story?

  • cathy

    @1966, if only USA will tell as where we can get the $2.69 a gallon gas. We will all be fine.

  • usa8888

    Ibsles and other people who watch Slimebaugh–pay close attention to the ratings of Fox, which have dropped precipitously since 2001. Slimebaugh attracts the same base of loons, a small subset of the US population which can not elect a president and will be increasing less likely to do so as we go out in time. But Slimebaugh can still make millions off suckers as he preaches his idiocy, as Beck does, too…

  • Ratboy

    $3.71 this morning! Nope, I aint thanking the King!

  • usa8888

    Rat–you anc Cathy are living in the wrong place…

  • usa8888

    ibsles–when you admit you watch Slimebaugh, you embarrass yourself..

  • Hillbilly

    Looks like he was right. Still got to wait for next quarter, but his track record is pretty good.

    ECRI is one of the more widely respected firms on economic recessions, as it has never been wrong when forecasting that a recession would start, or failed to predict a recession well before it was widely accepted.


  • 1966

  • cathy

    It’s confirmed. This song is from Syria to Israel

    It’s a big news day. An explosion in a hotel by SeaWorld San Diego, a 6.9 earthquake in Chili, Israel bombs Syria, liberal media news lead story, Fox news ratings drop…….

  • Hillbilly

    Yea agree with Nobama & the left wing media or your a bad person. :???:

    It’s the media’s (Fox & Rush) fault that congress can’t get along. :roll:

    The media can either help break or uphold partisan gridlock, the president said, adding that “If a Republican member of Congress is not punished on Fox News or by Rush Limbaugh for working with a Democrat on a bill of common interest, then you’ll see more of them doing it.”

    The president also conceded that “[t]he same dynamic happens on the Democratic side,” but in his mind, “the difference is just that the more left-leaning media outlets recognize that compromise is not a dirty word.”


    For a station who only gets a small % of the total viewers in the country they sure seem to get under Nobama’s skin & have lots of influence.

  • cathy

    Usa8888 when you post something you embarrass yourself.

  • Hillbilly

    I owe $230,614 Good luck trying to collect it.

  • usa8888

    HIllbilly–it’s the lunatic right fringe in the House that are causing all the problems in getting legislation passed. Please call them and tell them to do the American people’s will, not theirs…..

  • usa8888

    Cathy–when you talk as you do, we wonder about “your MBA”…

  • Hillbilly

    Bill O only cable news show on the list. :)

    For you uninformed – It’s news when a cable news station makes the list. It’s not news if a Comedy Central show makes the list. :razz:

  • Hillbilly

    I see AppleStinx posted this…it’s worth repeating. :cool:

    FNC again beat MSNBC and CNN in total day and primetime viewership and among adults 25-54 for the month of January. This most recent win marks 11 consecutive years of FNC’s dominance as the #1-rated cable news network.
