    Do Do Do Do….Do Do Do Do…………idot alert!

  • Jeff

    @Usa8888, once Tim Tebow actually admits to having sex or gets busted with a hooker or a young man, he will be forces to abandon the crazies as they will reject him…..WWJD? That story has been played with the neo cons over and over and over again.

    WATCH THIS (short)


  • Coffee Steve

    Everyone have a fantastic weekend, I’m going to sit back in my recliner, put on a bunch of movies and simply relax with my kid, eat pizza, popcorn, coffee and a nice carry out meal from a couple of dinners around here and not cook, clean, read or worry about asteroids, the economy for the fact that our Pres and his wife are wasting our money by taking separate vacations (ok I had to dig just once) :mrgreen:

    Bye Rats, enjoy the snow (sorry I had too)

    Bye Doug, tell USA when he knows enough about money to retire at age 57 we’ll listen to him :twisted:

  • Coffee Steve

    Watching d.d. video first before signing off

  • Coffee Steve

    Good Video d.d., Thank you, I will make sure I email the web address for it


    see you guys late Sunday or Monday

  • Jeff

    @coffee, how is a man supposed to relax? Separate vacations sounds perfect unless its on a Carnival Cruise ship. ;)

    Nixon often took separate vacations away from Buddy, as did JFK, how else was he gonna fool around.

  • Doug Z

    usa8888 is out buying naked shorts and wants us to thing everything is great.

  • usa8888

    Doug–puts and call are like 2nd grade arithmetic compared with Stokes’ theorem…

  • usa8888

    Doug–US corp profits are at all time highs–that’s what’s driving the stock market…if the right wing will just stay out of everything…

    ESPN loved him not neocons. He is not even a good QB

    Liberal love telling conservatives that only angry white men voted for Romney. They also love saying that conservatives can’t do math. Well I need you liberals to tell me where my math is wrong.

    73% of the voters in 2012 were white, only half were men 37.5%, only 59% of white males voteds for Romney that means only 22.13% of the 47.2% of the popular vote Romney received were angry white men.
    To make it easy for everyone to understand 25.07% of the popular vote for Romney over half were not white males.
    And please don’t talk voter fraud because white voting numbers where at 60% which has been the standard for decades. However, Black, Hispanic and Asian were all at new highs. With many swing states reporting that 70% to 100% of minorities voter in 2012. Numbers outside of the normal are more little to be cases of fraud.

    @Matthew, 60% of church going Catholics (attend church three times a month) voted for Romney. Many people call themselves catholics but haven’t been to church in over 5 years.
    Also using math explain to me how Obama got an overwhelming majority of Jews, black, Hispanic, Asian, women and catholic votes but only got 52% of the popular vote? Remember he got 39% of the white man vote too. I believe he got a overwhelming majority of Black and Hispanic. I can see a simply majority with the others.

    Obama did a great job of getting people out to vote in the swing states. In these areas black, Hispanic and Asian voters had as large as 100% turn out. Most were at 75% to 90% compared to the white 60%.

    Head start which is the current pre-school that the government provides does not work.

    US employment is at 1948 and the money was printed not earned. Wait until they quit printing. Buy Gold for the long run.I am not sure when they will quit printing, maybe 3 years, Oh after the next presidents election. The next President is doomed and so are we.

  • Doug Z


    Printing 85 billion a month ,said maybe more if needed . There is you profit.

  • usa8888

    Doug–you need college in a bad way…..you think like the creationists….Gold just tanked today.. Here’s a free tip for you : the stock market is header higher as the economy improves….don’t tell Rox “News”

  • Raz

    Pot should be treated like a medication, something you need a script for and only for specific dx codes like glycoma or cancer.

  • usa8888

    Cathy: the national demographics are changing quickly and it won’t be long before the GOP party is in the Smithsonian….

    Did you read this at all.

    Are you buying those naked shorts or wearing them.

  • Doug Z

    usa8888 are you black or Hispanic?

  • usa8888

    The only chance the GOP has is to suppress the vote and/or buy the vote using false advertising (via the Rove, Koch Bros, Adelson)…end of story..
