    Good Morning Everyone

    Start the day with a smile

  • Letmethink

    Good morning
    I see the owner dropped in last night. I don’t follow the demo discussion but interesting to read his comments. Does the total number of viewers not enter into advertising decisions?
    @apple–yes, it was Mercedes Benz.
    @Stan, yes Ellison would be fine taking everything the rich make but even at that it wouldn’t solve the problem. Perhaps he should pay more attention to the fraud snd waste in the system. Much more money there but then he would not have the divisive class warfare argument to push.

  • Letmethink

    Amazing talent–maybe the Mavs should sign him up

  • Coffee Steve



    if it isn’t fake, that kid is amazing

  • Letmethink

    For sure

  • Ratboy

    Gooood Morning!! NO SNOW TODAY!!!!!!! But 2 – 4 tomorrow boooooooooo

  • tony

    Would you not think the left crowd would be going ballistic if a Romney were Pres.with the drone controversy…those evil Republicans killing the innocent!

  • Coffee Steve

    Morning LMT, Rats & Tony


    Waterboarding Torture:Bad, Drone bombings:good

    Somehow things always get Bass Akwards :-)

    Good morning
    I see the owner dropped in last night.

    :lol: yep Bill stopped in but I find the whole thing pretty funny not to mention really shows that Mark2 cant be taken seriously :lol:

    I started the thing tounge in cheek and ended the post with:
    This is what is called a Mark2 apples to apples comparison with the only difference is that I am using shows that are ACTUALLY the same kind of show

    You sir, are simply mistaken, but I don’t expect I’ll be changing your mind

    Thank you for admitting that I was right. I’ve been saying that for over a month now.

    Like I have said in the past Ya cant fix……………..well you know!! :lol: :lol: :lol:

  • Coffee Steve


    SNOW is a four letter word you know LOL

  • Letmethink

    I agree with the drone use but agree Romney would be crucified. It sure does help with the Gitmo dilemma doesn’t it?

  • Ratboy

    One of my tenents is the local mail carrier union and they ARE NOT HAPPY!!!!

    Postal Service to Cut Saturday Mail

    The U.S. Postal Service will stop delivering mail on Saturdays but continue to deliver packages six days a week under a plan aimed at saving about $2 billion annually, the financially struggling agency says.

    In an announcement scheduled for later Wednesday, the service is expected to say the Saturday mail cutback would begin in August.

  • Letmethink

    @rats– I only read Mark2 twice before I put him on my “no read” list.

  • Coffee Steve

    It sure does help with the Gitmo dilemma doesn’t it?

    The press was almost 100% silent on this but the board that was looking into ways to close GITMO? Obama shut it down, GITMO will never close.

    Dick Morris Dropped By Fox News

  • Letmethink

  • Letmethink

    Glad Dick Morris is gone. He seemed like a slimy opportunist to me.

  • Letmethink

    Have fun—we will miss you.
