    I got a glimpse of MSNBC Sunday morning programming…I couldn’t believe it when they actually claimed everyone loves Obama’s drone program, republicans and democrats alike…and not one guest disputed that…

    Are they kidding? Obama is getting flak from both sides…The right is complaining because by droning everyone, we aren’t getting a chance to interrogate them…and the left are up in arms because, well, the left were all over Bush for getting water in the noses of three terrorists…so they could only hold their tongue so long about not only blowing up suspected terrorists, but the 150+ children who were unfortuneate enough to be in the vicinity…

  • Sicilian Papa

    I see d.d. printed some glaring examples of media bias. What else is new.

    This is the most corrupt organization in the country. They affect the opinion of a large minority of Americans. The left could not win without the corrupt, secular, left wing, so-called objective media. They would have a hard time winning any election without their propaganda wing

    See lefties we on the right don’t need a bias media. In a fair game we would win most of the time.

    Good Job d.d., interesting read.

  • usa8888

    Hey Stan–the drones are used when you CAN’T interrogate a terrorists. Do you want to be the first one who walks up to the terrorist bunker and asks if you can interrogate the terrorists. Get real…. Obama is the best killer of terrorists America has ever seen. And the program saves American lives (soldiers)….
    As I have told you previously, torture may or may not get accurate information. The drone program uses extrememly accurate top secret info developed by CIA memebers…so you KNOW you are killing key terrorists…

  • usa8888

    Sic papa–you are always talking about “secular”. .. Are you a reiligous right type??

  • usa8888

    Sic papa–don’t know if realize the national sales tax is the GOP plan???? did you know that??

  • Hillbilly

    A time lapse video of the snow in Hartford, CT. I think i see Sicilian Papa getting buried. :shock:

  • Hillbilly

    This is what Boston looks like. I’d say they got some snow. :eek:


  • Sicilian Papa



    Yeah, I am an evangelical Christian but I do not have a problem with non-believers. There are many here on this site. Some I agree with on a number of issues. Others I may not agree with but they are decent folks and what they believe is their business.

    I say secular in description of the media because they hate people like me. See entertainers like Bill Maher. Also most of the left media has contempt for people me. I just show them the same level of contempt. No malice really just sticking it back at them. It drives them crazy that they can’t change me. I believe in the little man in the sky and they hate that.

  • Sicilian Papa

    Actually I believe in the big man in the sky. The late George Carlin used the phrase “little man in the sky.”

    One thing is for sure he knows if I am right or he was, now.

  • Sicilian Papa

    A huge Carlin fan. One of the great comedians of all time. When he talked about God and Christians I would tune him out. His other bits where classic.

  • Sicilian Papa



    Yes, the GOP does have a sales tax plan. Their plan eliminates the income tax. The Obama plan includes taxing goods and income. Obamanomics, a true man made disaster.

  • AppleStinx

    Hillbilly posted: “A time lapse video of the snow in Hartford, CT…”

    That resembled the making of meringue.

  • Sicilian Papa


    Apple, Hillbilly

    We only got about 3ft here. No big deal!

  • Sicilian Papa

    I dug the car out today. 3 hours!

  • Ratboy

    Hey Papa.I hope you are not overdoing it! That snow can be a heart stopper!

    I support a fed income tax but it has to work like this, reduce the income tax and lose some loop holes then put on the sales tax so EVERYBODY pitches in. The problem with the fed sales tax coming from the left is they want it on to of the income tax and imagine this, they want it only on the big ticket items, you know the stuff the top 1% buy!!!

  • Sicilian Papa



    Yes, the lady is working out of town. When cats away the mice will watch sports!

  • Sicilian Papa



    Just raise the taxes more on the rich. Why does the left bother with a proposal that hurts businesses that make big ticket items. I don’t agree with raising taxes but why bother with the facade. Just come right out ant say you want to taxes on the rich to 60% of their income to pay for Obamacare and his massive deficits.

  • Sicilian Papa

    Even if you taxed the rich more you still can’t pay for Obamanomics!

  • debsafan

    I read on Facebook, that Fox was going down for the count. That no one was watching any more. Maybe, But more no bodies are watching Fox than the other news outlets.

  • AppleStinx


    From a seller’s point of view, I really don’t look forward to a national sales tax, that on top of state/county/city sales taxes. I’ve made a mental list of what we would have to do in our business to implement it. Not that I’m not capable of doing it, it’s just that I’m not in this business to be dealing with more layers of government than at doing business. A national sales tax will be a good excuse to quit. And I’ll go look for a job in Accounting somewhere, at least I’ll get paid to do it full-time.
