    back to the game after a pit stop!

  • Bobbyv


    OK, simplifying tax code, putting money in infrastructure, those are reasonable. At some point though we have to trim something somewhere. OK, game coming back on

  • usa8888

    Yes, Bobby, as soon as things get going again…

    It works for me, whatever our government can do or say that may cause enemies to decide that their cause is better off with them committing suicide rather than be interrogated when captured.

    The only reason fox still holds top ratings is because the working class America is too busy making a living. All those old f#$ks are watching fox because they have noting better to do. The people who watch MSNBC are too busy trying to feed their families and watch when they can. Thats why the ratings don’t give the real numbers. The gap is closer than you think. Soon the older fox voting base will be pushing daises and fox and the republican party will have lost their base. Hate to be hard about it, but it’s the truth and none too soon. fox is the surveyor of propaganda and vicious lies and all those old people sit there and listen to the crap because they’ve got theirs and aren’t that worried about losing anything. So they sit in front of their televisions and agree with fox and limbaugh and hannity believing what those evil people have to say because it’s what they want to hear in defiance of their common logic telling them it can’t be true. Nonetheless, the republican party has a voting constituency who is about to die off and that is why all of a sudden you see them reaching out to the latino voting block. Good luck old people, republican party, rush and hannity. Your days are numbered and the sooner you are gone the better for America.

    tonight, I had dinner with a friend of mine…he’s a liberal who is all into the equal distribution of wealth thing…

    I had steak, baked potatoe, vegetables and a nice big soda…he had a hamburger…my check was $22…his was $5…I told him pay up, $13.50…

    He said “I only had a hamburger…mine was only $5..why should I give you $13.50?

    I said, “equal distribution of wealth is a B_____ isn’t it?

    Again people,
    Why is a liberal the devil?
    Why is a conservative a joke?
    Again people,
    We are all.

  • Dreamer

    Ps. To S.P.,
    I thought Nevada was a liberal bastion of Ol’ Harry Reid himself.
    Now you want to move there?

    Pps. To 1966,
    There is only one king!

    Ppps. Piensa en lo que piensas cuando lloras.

    @ will be pushing up daisys……


    A lot more might be a whole lot deeper for not following their own dogma. Seems that Bill-O Beck and Limbaugh have them filled with rage and judgment with a lust for Guns and War.

  • Dreamer

    @ Jeff,
    It seems that more than one has their own dogma.

  • Dreamer

    Whatever that is.
