    We were lucky for the most part, downed trees, power outages etc. But were fine, thanks for asking

  • usa8888

    The American people agree with Obama’s gun policy. The stone la pierre is still pushing his fringe NRA agenda in order to put blood money in his pocket and kiss the gun mfs’ patootis. This is just another nail in the GOP’s coffin…..

  • usa8888

    I haven’t heard any right wingers comment about Fox’s precipitous drop in ratings….Mark posted an elaborate summary above…..

  • Coffee Steve

    Sad stuff

    *CHICAGOLAND: 15-Year-Old girl Who Performed At Obama Inauguration Shot Dead…
    **City murders more than double Afghan death toll…

    *Records Deadliest January In 11 Years…

  • usa8888

    Yes, we have had a few downed trees, a few squirrels running around, a bear or two, and a couple dinosaurs–oh, wait, those were far right wing Republicans running around (sorry, I mistook them for dinosaurs…..)

  • Coffee Steve

    Back to school, have fun kids BBL…

  • AppleStinx

    In case anyone missed it, Fox News still #1 after 11 years. :grin:

  • Jeff

    Neo con idiocy continues…..
    comparing gun deaths to @bortion
    comparing control to the possibilites in Germany 1940’s
    comparing control to the possibilites during US slavery era

    now we are comparing guns to nuclear weapons.
    lets call this what is is……desperation

    Anyone hear the leader of the Republican Party Phat Phuck Rush Limbaugh say “it is up to me and Fox News to kill immigration reform.”

  • usa8888

    Everything that Cathy said is prima facie evedence why the GOP is DEAD. But here is an excerpt from what she said: ” Women, gay, non-white and every special group need lots of laws to be treated equal.”
    Cathy–are you aware of laws that were passed to let women vote in the US, to overcome slavery, equal treatment in schools, transportation, restaurants, etc. This shows how out of touch these far right wing fringe people are with reality and why the GOP will never win another election!!!

  • cathy

    @Coffee, Thanks for the news. I don’t want to even think about my 401K. It’s only worth 25% of it’s 2007 value.

    @Mikey O, Why would you ask a silly question like, Who are the liberals going to blame when the economy doesn’t approve? All bad things are the fault of the republicans. Obama and the democrats bring us only good things.

  • usa8888

    Hey, apple, one person who is watching this really closely is Rupert. As you should know, remaining number one while your ratings are continnually slipping and your age demographics are continually being skewed more and more to the elderly AND while your competition’s ratings (i.e., MSNBC) are continually increasing in NOT GOOD. Call Rupert and ask him if he is resting on his laurels>>>>>

  • usa8888

    Cathy–if your 401 k is only worth 25% of its 2007 value, you need an investment strategist–mine has DOUBLED!!!

  • usa8888

    Coffee– Please get into the advanced calculus of your physics lesson. I had all what you said in 4th grade…..

  • Raz

    And the far left wing is in 1984

  • Raz

    Fox may not have done as well as last year, but they are still standing e head and shoulders above MSNBC.

  • 1966

    @apple stinx
    how dare you post something good about fox news.

  • cathy

    Oh, I missed a word in a post. It should be.
    Democrats believe:
    Women, gay, non-white and every special group need lots of NEW laws to be treated equal.

    If you look at the EOE law you will see how it already addresses salary.

    Coffee, I’m glad to hear that you and your area is fine.

    Hey everyone, aren’t you shocked that things change? Do any of you old conservative thinking people remember being liberal thinking in your youth? How many generations have said the world is changing we will be in control forever , Just everyone .
    God, Zeus, Allah, Brahma, Budda, and on, help us. Fox news ratings fell for one month. My life is over. If ratings keep falling like this in 5 years MSNBC may catch up to Fox. What will I do my life is all about Cable news ratings and and….. Oh, wait. I don’t work for Fox News it doesn’t matter.

  • Mikey O

    @cathy Yes I knew the answer to the question thats one of our problems blame someone else never ever your fault. Our goverment now promotes that, class warfare and everone is a victim of something. Well keep up the good fight Cathy maybe one day a liberal will see the light. We can only hope and beleive in a miracle.

  • Coffee Steve

    Have an idea!!!

    While rats is at his meeting today lets go dump truck loads of more snow in his driveway :twisted:

  • cathy

    @USA I bet your home value increased too. You do all your own investment too. By the way, what area are you in that has the $2.69? No, what, there is only one question I want you to answer. Many do you maintain the fantasy world you live in?
