    Right , Apple . Single payer is inching forward. As Obama said, they couldn’t get there all at once.



    Dem Rep. Maxine Waters: Thanks To Obama, Future Dem Candidates Will Have Access To “Very Powerful” Database That Has “Information About Everything On Every Individual”…

    And she doesn’t find that the slightest bit disturbing?

    @ Your more than likely right, I do love seeing a really good fish sandwhich

    Just remember Coffee Dude, Thou shalt not covet thy neighbors fish sandwich and you will be JUUUUUUST fine!

    Good afternoon everyone.

    Very few of my posts are making it through. I don’t understand why either. I had two appear only to disappear minutes later.

    Maybe the drones flying over the river are to blame.

    But I will try again.
    If Maddow and O’Donnell are so great, why doesn’t MSNBC have the guts to run them against O’Reilly? 8pm should be when your best show is run.

    How do you know that most of the people how watch Fox news are old? Do you have more information then this:

    Net 9PM P2+ (000s) 25-54 (000s) 35-64
    FNC Hannity 1,638 285 569
    CNN Piers Morgan 577 147 257
    MSNBC Rachel Maddow 1,040 292 559
    CNBC 60 Minutes 244 92 117
    HLN Dr. Drew 479 184 260

    Let’s assume for Fox that no one 25-34 watches it. That would mean all key demo views are in the 35-64 count. Using math (569-285=284)then 284 viewers are between 55-64. We can say the other 1069 views of Fox (1638 – 569 = 1069) are either under 25 or over 64. We don’t know.

    Let’s assume for MSNBC that half of their views in the 25-54 are under 34. That would mean the MSNBC has 413 55-64 viewers. (559-(292/2). Or we can say that the 25-34 is only 1/3. So (559-((292/3)*2)) 364 viewers are 55-64.
    The numbers seem to show that MSNBC has a higher increase of views 55-64.
    But I again these are assumptions. Without more data we don’t know.

    Is what the liberals call women’s empowerment truly empowerment at all?

    Being a conservative woman, I see most of what the liberals are pushing for women lately as a show or something that is truly better for men.

    Is sexual freedom really empowerment for women?

  • usa8888

    It looks like ibsles has just been suckered in again and has listened to slimebaugh and is reporting the same erroneous information, unable to discern truth from fiction. Obamacare is already reducing the cost of healthcare, which the right wingers are content to let increase 100% every 10 years–clearly unsustainable. I wish I had an audience of suckers so I could bilk them for $50 million…..

  • Coffee Steve

    Just remember Coffee Dude, Thou shalt not covet thy neighbors fish sandwich and you will be JUUUUUUST fine!

    Sadly, this truly is one of my weaknesses, FISH :-)

    @d.d. & Applestinx

    Your correct on the inching forward with the single payer system, but they have discovered some clinches that will sadly leave thousands of kids not covered and it will make them not eligible for K-Chip programs, and as of today no one is doing anything to correct this.

    By the way

    *DHS is buying millions more rounds of Ammo. (Just a thought) LOL

  • usa8888

    Fox’s ratings continue to fall with MSNBC’s increasing. But more importantly is the disproportionate preponderance of old viewers Fox is attracting. Rupert has realized that even Fox viewers want some changes and so he has fired Palin and Morris….more to come….

  • usa8888

    Romney was a great candidate…for the dems…and Lian Ryan—what can I say…other than Thank You!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    And the alternatives: Palin, Gingrich, Paul, Perry, Insanitorum, etc…we haven’t seen candidates like these since the Keystone Cops…. Where does the right wing GOP get people like these? don’t answer that…

    I forgot to add Eric Cantor–the guy who has re-branded the GOP for the 4th time and Mitch McConnell whom Rove is supporting against Judd. Rove is already running scared. And Jindal who severely criticized the GOP for not doing what the people wanted, but refuses to say the right wing controlled GOP should change its right wing ideals…???say what???

  • Ratboy


    Yep change IS good!!!!

  • d.d

    Obamacare is already reducing the cost of healthcare

    PROVE IT . You are a troll without any credibility.

  • Ratboy

    @ d.d.

    PROVE IT . You are a troll without any credibility.

    You would think MediaMatters or Think progress would hire something with a little bigger brain!!!! :lol: :lol:

    GM Confirms Flint East Plant Closing

    GM confirmed today, February 6th that the Flint East plant will close in November 2013, leaving 287 employees without their jobs.

    The automaker also said that the workers here will be relocated in Mexico to a Delphi plant.

  • usa8888

    The right wing, oddly enough is for 100% increases in healthcare every 10 years. Obama is NOT. That’s why Obamacare was initiated. The insurance companies are running scared but some are responding favorably and rates have been held in check better now than in the past. More people are being covered. Pre-conditions are no more, etc.

  • usa8888

    Hey D.D.—-under the right wing GOP, ALL auto plants in the US would have been closed. Thank you, President Obama for saving the US auto industry and its supporting companies.

  • usa8888

    US automaker sales are up sharply AND they are producing cars that get better mileage. Thanks, President Obama!!!!!!!!

  • Ratboy

    Yep we are seeing the harvest of the stimulus! Yield, not so good! :shock:

    Departing LaHood Moans That ‘America Is One Big Pothole'; Wasn’t the Stimulus Supposed to Solve That?

    You had a “bold plan” in 2009, Ray. It was called the “stimulus.”

    The administration spent 2009 and 2010 bragging about how infrastructure improvements were bringing the nation back from the eeeeevil Bush recession. The problem was, first, that much of the funding went to projects already on the books; in other words, federal money replaced state and local money. Second, much of the stimulus plan money was spent on nonsense like failed “green energy” projects which had nothing to do with improving infrastructure.

  • d.d

    Obamacare is already reducing the cost of healthcare

    YOU DIDN’T PROVE IT . You are a troll without any credibility.

  • usa8888

    Hey DD–now it’s privacy you are worried about. You should be worried about a better, more efficient, less costly healthcare system. You haven’t been listening to Slimebaugh, by any chance, have you ????

  • usa8888

    D.D.–is in favor of the old right wing healthcare system under which healthcare costs doubled every ten years and service and qualtiy were sub-par? Why–because Slimebaugh said so…..

  • usa8888

    D.D–which of the joke right wing GOP candidates do you favor???? I like Christie, not a joke candidate, but he (nor Reagan) would have a chance in the current warped right wing GOP……
