    @DD, That happened just at the bottom of the Rouge River bridge. Lots of truck happening south after coming over from Canada. I drive that area of I-75 a lot. All the trucks are why I have always drive a full size car lots with safety features.

    Relax guy…it doesn’t matter how many viewers are watching Fox News, they’re still failing in getting a Republican into the Oval Office and they’re definitely not giving you any of their profits, lol.

    As for the younger viewers go, don’t even get me started there. Jon Stewart gets 3 times as many viewers as O’Reilly or the Five in the 18-49 key demo. Even Colbert gets more than twice as many viewers than O’Reilly in that key demo.

    The end result is that the Liberal Media and the Democratic Party are winning by getting their Liberal candidate into the Oval Office. Hillary in 2016. You guys won’t have a chance at the Oval Office until 2024. And that’s only if the GOP goes back to being a sane Republican Party who embraces minorities, women, etc.

    Dang rookies..it’s like they never learn.

    @ Stan T………………That would likely piss – off the neighbors.

  • cathy

    @USA8888, You have NEVER PROVEN ME WRONG. While I have done it to a dozen of times. Show me your link to the National Poll. Here’s the link that shows it’s a three state poll.

    Hey if you can select states and call it a National poll. I pick Texas, Alaska and Wyoming.

  • Mark2


    As soon as Bob Beckel stopped making appearances on Hannity, his ratings went down. However, Beckel’s ratings have gone up on the Five.

    Bob Beckel for the win! Got’em!!!

  • Stan T

    The lefties play their games again…i checked last nights cable results…O’Reilly did have only .443 in the key demo, but since the lowest numbers for those on the top 100 was .300, then O’Reilly should have been listed, unless of course, as I assume, they did not include news programs, since news has it’s own section, perhaps…here is the numbers that Mark2 hid…

    O’Reilly…………….2.938 million .443
    Daily show…………..1.63 million .800
    Colbert Report……….1.41 million .700
    Rachel Maddow………..1.03 million .315

    Now if Mark and the other lefties think O’reilly sucks against Stewart and Colbert, think how bad Maddow must suck against them…rofl

    The first number is total viewers, the second one young people…

  • ninja

    @ cathy……………..Don’t hold your breath. Still waiting for the link on tumbling bullets.

  • Stan T

    the lefties talk a lot of smack about Fox News…but then what do you expect from people who admit they get thier news from a comedy show…you realize that American Dad gets WAY more viewers than either Stewart and Colbert, in fact American Dad is Stewarts lead-in….so young people tune into American Dad, and tune out when Stewart comes on…and even more tune out when Colbert comes on…

  • AppleStinx


    The only women that Neanderthal lefties can bring themselves to respect are the likes of Rachel Maddow, you know, women with a PhD, otherwise they’re only good for their “legs”. :wink:

  • Ratboy

    So Beckel stops appearing and ratings go down and he is on the five and ratings go up soooooo FOX has a large liberal viewership?????????? I don’t think your fellow loons here want to hear THAT!!!


  • Ratboy

    Apple Buddy
    That is assuming that Rachel IS the woman in her relationship! :shock:

  • Bobbyv


    That is the sad part, people think it is the media’s job to get people elected. If you think that then you cannot complain when R’s moan about the bias. I give you credit for being honest about it.

    Remember guys, Stan T. is the dude that doesn’t even know what the 2nd amendment says.

    Here is the Dems war on woman

    Dominican prostitute: Sen. Bob Menendez ‘likes the youngest and newest girls’

    In a little-noticed email published online Wednesday by Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW), a young Dominican woman wrote nine months ago that she slept with 59-year-old New Jersey Democratic Sen. Bob Menendez at a series of sex parties organized by Dr. Salomon Melgen, a longtime Menendez campaign donor.

    “That senator also likes the youngest and newest girls,” the woman wrote on April 21, 2002, according to an English translation

  • Doug Z

    Dems war on woman

    TheDC is not disclosing the woman’s name because she may have been a minor when her alleged sexual encounters with Menendez occurred. Four different Spanish speakers who reviewed TheDC’s translation of her letter all said her Spanish writing indicated someone who was very young and unsophisticated.

    Here is the Dems war on woman

    The young woman wrote that she was recruited as an escort from an adult escort service called the Doll Palace, and that the code word “chocolate” would summon her and other girls to Melgen’s sex parties. She offered specific recollections of Melgen’s preferred pimp, the homes where she slept with his house guests for money, and the phone number her calls would come from.

    @StanT…”i checked last nights cable results…O’Reilly did have only .443 in the key demo, but since the lowest numbers for those on the top 100 was .300, then O’Reilly should have been listed…”

    Listen Rookie, the reason why O’Reilly is not on the list is because the Top 100 Cable shows are based on the only thing that matters…the 18-49 demo.

    As far as the .8 and .7 goes, that’s not 800k and 700k. The .8 and .7 numbers on the list are based on 18-49 demo rating. Each Point for the 18-49 demo is equal to 1,265,000 viewers. In other words, .8 equals 1,012,000 (18-49) viewers and .7 equals 885,500 (18-49) viewers. O’Reilly didn’t even make the list and the lowest on the list was a .3 rating which is equal to 379,500 (18-49) viewers. Which mean O’reilly got less than 379,500 viewers in the key demo (18-49) for Top Cable shows.

    In other words:

    Key Demo (18-49) Viewers for Wednesday

    Jon Stewart = 1,012,000
    Colbert = 885,500
    OReilly = less than 379,500

    It’s like everyday that I have to school you fools on the basics. It’s like you Foxtards never learn…maybe because it involves Math, lol.

  • Doug Z

    Go Dems go

    Dems love under age girls, so they do not have a war on woman

    That young prostitute said she had sex with Menendez “three times at least” in 2009. “The first one in February, and then in May and June. I recall his visit in June so well because that month was my 17th birthday.”

  • Doug Z

    cover up by media

    In May 2012, CREW also referred the investigation to ABC News investigative producer Rhonda Schwartz. Despite being the first news outlet to learn of the allegations against Senator Menendez, the network has yet to air a story about the scandal
