    Oh yeah, Jon Stewart and Colbert both made it in the Top 25 for Top Cable shows on Wednesday, while O’Reilly didn’t even make the Top 100 list. I just love the fact that their information about new stories is getting out to the younger generations.

    Ouch!!! That’s gotta hurt!

    Lautenberg calls Menendez ethics accusations ‘too bad’

    YEAH….Lautenberg says….TOO BAD – HE GOT CAUGHT!!!

    @Ratboy, “Paycheck Fairness Act” I’m guessing this act will work both ways. The male engineer at Ford, GM and Chrysler are going to love this. Female engineers make 30% more then their male counter parts. Most women in the engineering field are paid more because there are fewer of them and they are needed to fill the EOE number.
    If you want to make sure your daughter is going to make more then her male counter parts, have her pick a male dominated field.

    @Laurence Glavin, What a batch of cr*p. Women being anti-feminists. You liberal spinning crackpot. NOW is not a women’s group. It’s an a***tion rights group with extreme left wing leadership. They are full of cr*p with their “you can’t be a feminist if you are pro-life”. Women do not need a***tion to have sexual freedom and sexual freedom isn’t the NUMBER 1 want of women. Only 18% of women say that a***tion is factored into how they vote, and NOW makes it their number one item. They’re number two issue is gay marraige. They not only exclude but villainize every women who oppose a***tion. NOW only supports liberal thinking women. They bad mouth women how don’t think like them. And they support liberal men in congressional races over republican women.

    Independent Women’s Forum – is a true women’s right group. Their goal is the betterment of all women. They are feminist. The true definition is:
    1. advocating social, political, legal, and economic rights for women equal to those of men.
    2. an advocate of such rights.
    They always support the women vs the men when the win against each other. They support all women be they liberal, conservative, independent, Pro-life, Pro-choice, working moms, stay-at-home moms, single, married, gay, straight, etc. They fight for all women being equal.

    Use the d**n gray matter between your own ears and stop believing the liberal garbage.

  • Mark2


    Actually the political parties do care that the younger generations are watching the likes of Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert. Those two individuals helped changed the political landscape over the last 8 years by way of attracting the younger generation and informing the rest of America.

    Pew Poll Finds For First Time Majority Of Americans Think Federal Government Threatens Their Rights, Freedoms…

    For the first time, a majority of Americans believe the federal government threatens their rights and freedoms, according to a poll released Thursday.

    Fifty-three percent of Americans believe the government is a threat, and 43 percent do not, according to a Pew Research Center poll. Three-in-ten Americans believe government constitutes a major threat. In a poll conducted October 2003, only 45 percent saw government as a threat to their freedoms. Fifty-four percent do not

    And even Americans who don’t feel threatened by Washington distrust the government and are frustrated with it. Only 26 percent of Americans believe the government does the right thing most or all of the time, and 73 percent think it does the right thing rarely or not at all.

    “Do you realize how few people in Washington will tell the truth about who Obama really is and what his grand designs are? And Rubio did in that interview. I thought that was noteworthy, and that’s what I was praising him for, not amnesty.” -Rush Limbaugh

  • Mark2

    Rush Limbaugh failed once again in getting America to elect a Republican as our President…so much for having power and influence.

  • lbsles

    “The Democrat Party exists, particularly today, on millions of Americans feeling hopeless, helpless, not confident in themselves and relying on government as the source of prosperity.” -Rush Limbaugh

    Anyone who quotes Rush has an IQ below 10, or is over 80.

    Top Dems Trading Hot Ticket Items for Campaign Cash

    Democrats do love their bribes.

    Prominent House Democrats are offering a trip to the Super Bowl, club level seats at a Lady Gaga concert, and tickets to a host of other entertainment events in exchange for high-dollar campaign contributions.

    A gift of $10,000 to Rep. John Conyers’ (D., Mich.) reelection effort will get donors two tickets to the Super Bowl, in which the San Francisco 49ers will square off against the Baltimore Ravens, and admission for four at an exclusive luncheon at New Orleans’s upscale Bourbon House.

    Rep. Gwen Moore (D., Wis.) is asking for $4,000 for a pair of club level seats at the Verizon Center in Washington D.C. for a February 25 performance by pop star Lady Gaga. Singles can get one ticket for $2,500.

    Donors can attend a Pink show at the Verizon Center courtesy of Rep. Ted Deutch (D., Fla.). He’s asking for $2,500 for a pair of tickets or $1,500 for one.

    The Conyers, Moore, and Deutch fundraisers appear on a list of events from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee obtained by the Free Beacon. Nine of the fundraisers involve tickets to sports or entertainment events.

    Paul Krugman Answers Paul Ryan on Debt Crisis: We Can Print Money

    This is why Keynesian economists are idiots and Obama loves them. Krugman believe devaluing the dollar by printing more to buy Obama’s record setting debt is a good thing. Liberals believe money truly does grow on trees.

    Responding to House Budget Chairman Paul Ryan’s warning that if the federal government continues to run annual $1 trillion deficits we will eventually face a debt crisis, liberal economist and New York Times columnist Paul Krugman said Wednesday that that is not a legitimate worry because the U.S. government can always print money and weaken the buying power of the dollar.

    Weakening the dollar, Krugman said, would be a good thing.

    “The United States is a country that has its own currency–can’t run out of cash because we print the money. If you even try to think what would happen–suppose that investors get down on the United States. Even so, that would weaken the dollar, not send interest rates soaring, and that would be good. That would help our exports,” Krugman said on C-SPAN’s “Newsmakers.”

    Krugman was asked whether he thought the U.S. was “in danger of a collapse, a stall, a crisis.”

    “No, there’s a whole bunch of reasons why that’s not true. First of all … that trillion dollar deficit is overwhelmingly the result of a depressed economy, and when the economy’s depressed, it’s good to run a deficit. You don’t want the government to try and balance its budget right now,” Krugman said.

    Did Democrats Break House Ethics Rule by Wearing Lapel Pins in PAC Video ?

    Several House Democrats have put themselves in a little bit of a pickle by appearing on a new House Majority PAC commercial aimed at showing how successful the PAC believes they were during the 2012 election cycle.

    Apparently, these members of Congress may have violated House Ethics rules by using their position as Congressman/Congresswoman to promote a PAC. In House Majority PAC’s video, members Ami Beri, Cheri Bustos, Patrick Murphy, Raul Ruiz and Sean Patrick Maloney can all be seen promoting the PAC while wearing their congressional lapel pins.
