    Come’ on man…you know calling everyone that disagrees with uneducated is kind of…well…uneducated.

    Rat makes a good point. What the left is doing is going to crumble my friend. Just a matter of time. Your side owns the corrupt media so you may not have to worry.

    Just remember you are winning a rigged game and people may wise up to it some time.

    The propaganda arm of the right wing GOP, Fox “News”, is pushing the story about the Catholic bishops rejecting Obama’s contraception adjustment. None of the real news organizations have carried the story. The Catholic bishops are trying to impose their 6th Century erroneous beliefs on the public. It’s ironic that most Catholics don’t subscribe to the Church’s teachings (they don’t even understand the Church’s tenets)–they just pefunctorily say they are Catholics. But there are, oddly enough, still some hard core Cathcolics that take the bait– hook, line, and sinker….

  • usa8888

    What sic papa and Rat say is reminiscent of what the Catholic Church said back in the 1600’s–that science was a fraud and they would kill you if you thoght any differently. That thinking still exists today, except thankfully they are not killing people anymore. I would suggest to both of you that you enroll in a good university and learn something…then come back and see us…

    I haven’t seen ibsles yet this morning–he is probably getting his dose of error from slimebaugh and will make his appearance shortly…

  • Ratboy

    This is gotta leave a mark!!!
    POLL: Obama’s approval rating collapses; 46%…
    President Obama has a split 46 – 45 percent job approval, according to the independent Quinnipiac (KWUIN-uh-pe-ack) University poll, down from 53 – 40 percent approval among registered voters in December, a month after his re-election. Today’s figure is closer to the president’s negative 45 – 49 percent job approval in July, in the middle of his reelection campaign, and similar to his job score for much of his first term.

  • usa8888

    Hey RAT–the vast majority APPROVE of Obama’s policies on EVERYTHING…AND Obama’s approval rating is 3 times that of any Republican….

  • Coffee Steve

    Taking a short break from school I was reading some of the testimony from the BENGHAZI hearings, based on what I have read so far it seems neither Obama nor Hillary took that 3am phone call.

    One simple call and no call back from any of them for over 8 hours of the attack going on. Shamefull.


  • usa8888

    Hey Rat–La Pierre is practicing what Robme has mastered: talking out of both sides of his mouth at different times. Ten years ago, the stone was for background checks on everyone for all weapoins. Now, he’s against it. Maybe the gun mfrs are paying him more money now….

  • usa8888

    Obama has done more to stop and kill terrorists than anyone EVER. The right wing GOP has done nothing in this regard…..they are too busy supporting their “legitimate rape” candidates….

  • usa8888

    I don’t believe sic papa or Rat have any money in the Market or they would understand it better…..

    If that’s the case, Rat, you could afford a good college education…..go for it!!!

    The Voter Fraud That ‘Never Happens’ Keeps Coming Back

    Critics of voter ID and other laws cracking down on voter fraud claim they’re unnecessary because fraud is nonexistent. For instance, Brennan Center attorneys Michael Waldman and Justin Levitt claimed last year: “A person casting two votes risks jail time and a fine for minimal gain. Proven voter fraud, statistically, happens about as often as death by lightning strike.”

    Well, lightning is suddenly all over Cincinnati, Ohio. The Hamilton County Board of Elections is investigating 19 possible cases of alleged voter fraud that occurred when Ohio was a focal point of the 2012 presidential election. A total of 19 voters and nine witnesses are part of the probe.

    Democrat Melowese Richardson has been an official poll worker for the last quarter century and registered thousands of people to vote last year. She candidly admitted to Cincinnati’s Channel 9 this week that she voted twice in the last election.

    This is how Channel 9?s website summarized the case:

    According to county documents, Richardson’s absentee ballot was accepted on Nov. 1, 2012 along with her signature. On Nov. 11, she told an official she also voted at a precinct because she was afraid her absentee ballot would not be counted in time.

    “There’s absolutely no intent on my part to commit voter fraud,” said Richardson. . . .

    The board’s documents also state that Richardson was allegedly disruptive and hid things from other poll workers on Election Day after another female worker reported she was intimidated by Richardson. . . .

    During the investigation it was also discovered that her granddaughter, India Richardson, who was a first time voter in the 2012 election, cast two ballots in November.

    Richardson insists she has done nothing wrong and promises to contest the charges: “I’ll fight it for Mr. Obama and for Mr. Obama’s right to sit as president of the United States.”

    But, of course, as you know there is no voter fraud. Pay no attention to that lightning coming out of Ohio

    The Washington Times Had an article today : Obamacare’ health care reform ALREADY forcing doctors to close practices

    A sweeping survey of 13,575 doctors released in September by the Physicians Foundation found that 77 percent were pessimistic about the future of medicine.

    One of the points being made was that the problem is as many as 32 million people are expected to be added to the health care system as a result of Obamacare, half of those as a result of the expansion of Medicaid. Many doctors already refuse to accept Medicaid patients because the government reimbursements for services rendered are well below the market rates.

    I live in an area where my town has 99 doctors. Not one takes Medicaid . In order to get care , patients need to travel to another town about an hour away. There is only one doctor in that town that sees Medicaid patients. How is this going to be workable ???

    I know usa 4 8’s will have all the answers . After all, I’m just an RN ,with 2 sisters that are RNS , 3 brothers who are doctors , &, a dad that is a doctor. I couldn’t possibly have any reasons to find fault with Obamacare.


    Reading the Chicago Trib this morning ….. just the usual

    The Rat is still bogged down in his 4th grade education and can’t understand how to revive an economy trapped in the recession caused by Bush and real estate fraud. I can understand Rat’s dilemma–he and and right wingers simply don’t have the education to figure it out. Thankfully, they are not in charge and never will be….if they would only stay out of the way and call the House right wingers and tell them not to obstruct…

    There is only one way. Manufacturing and natural resources , we have to produce. Product is money and money creates wealth. The is no other way.

  • usa8888

    Another bogus story from Rat. The right wing continues to trump up voter fraud charges as they continue to overtly suppress the vote by creating huge lines and complicated ballots with lots of legaleeze…The number of cases of voter fraud are MINIMAL. The GOP had “intimidators” postioned at many polling stations for the purpose of reducing the dem vote. The GOP even put up billboards in dem areas with false advertising on them to discourage dem voting. The courts make the GOP take them down. Right wing GOP governors and attorneys general tried to reduce the number of days voting was allowed in order to reduce the dem vote. They focused on dem voting areas and not on GOP voting areas. Some confusion was caused by the GOP manipulating voting law so that voters didn’t know whether to vote absentee or at the polls–some absentee ballots were sent out very late. BUT the GOP voter suppression DID NOT WORK!!!

  • usa8888

    Doug–if you don’t have any demand, you are not going to have any manufacturing and mining–it’s that simple. Why can’t you understand that???

    D.D.–the whole health delivery system is changing radically. The right is fabricating problems. Everything will work out fine…AND the cost of healthcare will come down, as it is already……
