    You’re starting to really lose it…I think you may need a straightjacket pretty soon.

  • Mark2

    You Foxtards keep forgetting that more and more people are now getting their news from online than from TV. Here’s a look at some of the most popular online news sites:

    Monthly Average Unique Online Visitors

    CNN = 62 Million
    Huffington = 60 Million
    MSNBC = 57 Million
    CBS News= 40 Million
    Fox News = 31 Million

    Ouch!!! That’s gotta hurt!

    Cathy–where are Einstein’s transcripts????

    What does that mean, or am I not smart enough to know

  • Doug Z

    Professor USa

    Obama and Libs, both GOP and Demo, this is your Economics

    Worst of all is: Dims/Progressives/Libbies/0bammunists preaching salvation by taxing everything including the air, spending every dime in sight, borrowing the rest and sticking our kids with the tab.

  • Doug Z

    Cathy–seriously, you haven’t fallen for the that far right wing fringe line about Obama’s transcripts, have you? You wouldn’t know Einstein if he walked up to you…. Most people on this blog couldn’t pass a GED…. And Cathy, you couldn’t tell me what part Green’s Theorem plays in the proof of Stokes’ Theorem…and you supposedly have had math…..

    You are a Democrat, Lib. You think everybody that disagrees with you is stupid.

  • Bsotgnw


    Stil waiting for your sources on how Obama care is reducing health care costs…..DAY 4 …Where are they We are all waiting with baited breath!

  • Doug Z


    Keep spending, I know you have no kids.

    While dullard liars tell us we don’t have a “spending problem,” and continue to spend trillions more than we have and to borrow and print up funny money dollars to cover it, I wonder if anyone in federal authority has noticed that Putin just purchased 570 metric tons of gold, more than three times the mass of the Statue of Liberty. While we debase our currency for the sake of enslaving our people in a dependency scheme to maintain power, our most lethal enemy is taking steps to strengthen their currency. Read the papers much, Professor USA?

  • Cathy

    RedBarSoup and Andies, I was surprised to see all the channel rating up. Then I remembered there was a snow storm and the man hunt for the crazy ex LA cop who killed three so far.

    It was a big news day. Oh wait it wasn’t a big news day for MSNBC because the LA killer is a fan of the left. So, MSNBC couldn’t blame the killings on the tea party.

    Nice to see Marc Lamont Hill admit the hypocrisy on the drones. That is all I ask for, some honesty.

  • Ratboy

    Here is our resident economic genius’ mathmatical equation for the repair of our economy;

    spend+spend+spend+borrow+spend+borrow+spend=prosperity for all

    This is the first time in a long time that I have seen him speak with some rational thought. It was in fact refreshing.

    Back to School – Economics 101

  • Sicilian Papa

    Doroner a left wing wacko! Not a word about the political leanings of this left wing wacko. He was influenced to kill by corrupt, secular, left wing, so-called objective media!

    Yeah I am nuts when I describe these cockroaches in the so-called objective media as corrupt.

    Game, set, match, lefties!!! Game, set, match!!!!

    Again crazy Papa proved right! Again, when will you lefties stop doubting me?

  • Sicilian Papa


    Where is RedBarSoup? I seem to remember him telling me I was paranoid and crazy for saying the corrupt, secular, left wing, so-called objective media is corrupt.

    Well who is crazy now? RedBar!!!!!!!

  • Sicilian Papa

    I so love it when I can expose these cockroaches in the corrupt, secular, left wing, so-called objective media.

    Doroner motivated to kill by corrupt media. When will they take responsibility for their actions?

    The 12th of never and that’s a long long time!

    They blamed Sarah Palin for the shootings in Arizona. They are just so corrupt!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Sicilian Papa

    I am not blaming the left!

    I am blaming your propaganda wing! Not political talkers or politicians. Brian Williams, Scotty Pelley, and most of the reporters in these corrupt organizations.

  • RedBarSoup

    or MSNBC because the LA killer is a fan of the left.

    A fan of the left? He liked George Bush Senior.

  • RedBarSoup

    He also liked the stance Chik-fil-A had on gay marriage.

  • Doug Z

    professor USA

    Did Obama do that!!!!!

    Indeed, college graduates are fortunate to find any job in today’s bleak economy. In 2006 and 2007, 90% of all college graduates found a job within a year of graduating. Since 2011, just 56% of college graduates are able to find work.

    He thinks he is Dirty Harry, Clint Eastwood. But love Obama
