    Rifle owners.

    I’ve noticed that the photo of Obama shooting has him using a right handed rifle.

    As a left handed shooter myself I find this strange. Does Obama look having the casings discharged into his face after each shoot?

    Or is this a type of rifle that doesn’t discharge the casing? I don’t know every type of rifle.

    But I remember the first time I shoot a right handed rifle, left handed. Those casings, first shock the heck out of you when you see them coming at you face, then they hurt like heck.

    The advertising money is moving from FOX to NBC because its the general ratings directions. FOX is so far right that its the only thing that end of my party will listen to and its makes the party’s credibility go down. They have a 50-80 yrs old niche that is working well for them.

    Now that’s funny….especially with MSNBC running all those lean over commercials…do you really think if they had advertisers standing their with cash in their hands, they’d run all those NO INCOME commercials instead? lol

  • cathy

    Mark2 is using the liberal spin again. He accuses people of posting under multiple names. Bill tells him, he does not see any. But no this is not Bill telling him he is wrong.

    Yes, Bill nicely said tell him who you think is doing it and he will look into it.

  • Mark2


    Here’s the latest generic cCngressional ballot from your favorite pollster Rasmussen:

    Democrats = 44%
    Republicans = 38%

    Ouch!!! That’s gonna leave a mark!

  • Mark2


    Hang in there darling…I’ll say a prayer for you.

  • usa8888

    Rush Slimebaugh apparently hasn’t heard of monoploy and oligopoly. Healthcare is already lower cost with Obamacare and we will no longer see the 100% increases in healthcare that the GOP is content with.

  • usa8888

    The fox right Wing News Propaganda Network has only a 46% rating for telling the truth. That means they are basically biased and unfair….

  • usa8888

    Will the NRA advocate the free use of armor piercing bullets? After All, anti-government types might need them in the insurrection…??

  • Bobbyv


    For whom have healthcare costs decreased? Every search I see says the opposite. Are you talking for a small number of people? I do not consider costs rising 3% vs. you thinking they would have risen br 10% under some Republican as costs decreasing.

  • Mark

    Stan T.
    And notice…when people in those countries need medical care…they come HERE…so how good are those universal healthcare systems?
    I am not going to lie the US system is the best heathcare system in the world if you are rich and have the money to afford it, but for the average joe and jill, it’s to expensive and limitting. To point out how some millionaire of billionaire comes to the US when they sick doesn’t speak about of the system works for a country full of 300M+

  • usa8888

    Cutting spending in a bad recession or depression is like turning off a firehose aimed at a fire. It doesn’t make sense except to people with no sense….that would be Fox viewers….
    If there is one thing that cutting spending in a recession or depression WON’T cause, it’s economic growth…..

  • Stan T.


    Actually, he’s shooting a shotgun…and it’s not a pump action, so no shells being ejected. He would have to break it to pull the used shells….

    HOWEVER…I must also submit, as an owner of a side by side double-barrel, full choke 410, and the fact my father has also owned a 12 guage and 16 gauge shotguns as well as a goose gun, which is a really big shotgun…that in the age of “smokeless gun powder”, that there is no way in hades that there would be that kind of smoke coming out of the barrel of a shotgun…

    The fox right Wing News Propaganda Network has only a 46% rating for telling the truth. That means they are basically biased and unfair….


    And MSNBC and NBC are sitting at the bottom with 8% each…are you supposed to be making some kind of point?

  • usa8888

    Bobby–my costs have gone down, but you have to wait until the entire program is fully executed. It’s about time someone (Obama) has decided to do something about healthcare costs because 100% increases over 10 years are unsustainable. Employers have been forced to pass along many more costs along to employees and/or reduce coverage substantially. Already, we are seeing doctors willing to work on less margin and modify the scope of their of their practices. New types of healthcare dilivery are emerging, at lower costs. We will see significant reductions in costs coming from preventative screenings, diets, and exercise programs which were never considered seriously before. There will be many changes, none of which initiated by the GOP….

  • Stan T.

    I got some good news…though some wont think so…lol

    As of Monday, I obtained my business license for my new publishing company. At this point it is not much more than just a name that will go in my fantasy novel that should be coming out soon…my book is waiting on copy edit and my cover from the artist…

    Even if I only publisher my own books, it’s still worth owning the publisher that publishes my books…lol

  • Bobbyv


    I have no problem with someone trying to control healthcare costs, I just know mine have gone up (not much, but a bit). I have seen many articles about the rising costs. Time will tell.

  • usa8888

    If the public trusts Fox news, why do they overwhelmingly watch the real news networks?

  • tony

    @Mark2–the suck on the teat I believe originated from the way Abe Lincoln pronounced it during the civil war,any way you slice we just cant printing money–Ol Colbert wouldnt find it funny if he didnt get paid.

  • tony

    @Cathy–Dont you just love it Liberals like Obama with a gun to prove hes one of us–when the campaigns come around you’ll be seeing Hillary in a camoph.outfit trying to show her love for hunting:in reality the closest thing shes ever been hunting was setting a mouse trap.

  • tony

    @Sicilian Papa–I see you’d go Willie Pep on Colbert–I’d like to go Joey Maxim,or Willie Pastrano or Joey Giardello on Olbermann and O’Donnell.
