    @cathy re: Does your memory only work when it’s to your advantage?

    When keeping track, are you using Republican math?….Or te@bagger math?

    Either way lady……I really don’t actually care.

    Doug–it all comes down to education. That cause innovation, new products, and record profits accruing the United States. If you don’t have a lot of education, you’re through…..Support Obama’s education programs…..(and , in the process, educate the right wing)…

    No you can not compete with $5 a day pay and no benefits at all. Do the real math. We and Europe produce very little. Germany does produce. Do not live on a dream lets fix it together. No one wants to touch this for they know how hard it will be.

  • Jeff

    @usa8888 re:educating

    Are you talking about te@baggers that think the Earth is only 7000 years old???

    Are you talking about te@baggers that think since there’s snow in there yard global warming is proven wrong???

  • Doug Z


    this problem is big and nobody is talking about it. Nobody.Just pretend that magic will happen.You have to make something to sell to somebody, or you can not buy what they have.We buy everthing and sell very little. It use to be the other way around. Now we are poor but have not felt it yet. We can do it.

    America can produce again.

  • Doug Z


    we can make product and be rich again. We can produce.

  • Doug Z

    usa and Jeff

    We can do it . Make a product that we can sell. Use our own product we make. We have to buy from America first.

  • Doug Z

    usa and Jeff

    this is why I do not support GOP or DNC. they are afraid so they blame each other. It is both of their fault and ours.

    @USA8888 MMM Sequester was the white house idea. Didn’t the dems vote for the bill and didnt Obama sign the bill ??? MMMM Didn’t house pass a bill twice to target the cuts and wasnt it Obama threated to veto the bill?? MMM by Obama’s own standards on stimulus,he stated this is the worst recession since the great depression and we need to pass a 800 plus soending bill now. This bill will keep un-employment under 8% and now un-employment should be under 6%. So by the white house own standards stimulus was a failure. Didnt POUS have veto proof majority and could have passed any size stimulus bill it wanted ??? So dont say it wasnt big enough for those shovel ready jobs.

    To those Global warmers–this entire planet was nearly covered with ice,who made it disappear Fred Flintstone?They say they believe in science,only when they act as a lap dog for the great meteorologist Al Gore.It was the flat earthers who lived in fear,not the ones who knew the earth is round.

    Good Morning Everyone

    *Leading Geneticist: Human Intelligence Slowly Declining… :shock:

    Dr. Gerald Crabtree ““I would wager that if an average citizen from Athens of 1000 BC were to appear suddenly among us, he or she would be among the brightest and most intellectually alive of our colleagues and companions, with a good memory, a broad range of ideas, and a clear-sighted view of important issues.

    Furthermore, I would guess that he or she would be among the most emotionally stable of our friends and colleagues,” the geneticist began his article in the scientific journal Trends in Genetics.

    But, uh, But! huh? eye realy disahgreee yuk yuk

  • Jeff

    Good Morning Coffee Steve!!

    That’s easy for Dr. Crabtree to say, since they are all dead!

    I imagine that the Vulcans are way too emotional.


  • Coffee Steve

    Detroit Goes Under

    Gov. Snyder gets a report today from a review team of financial experts asked to access the city’s finances. Enough of the report has been leaked so that the conclusion is inevitable.

  • Coffee Steve


    I used to think New Yorkers had backbone, I am not so sure anymore. Bloomberg has turned into nothing more than a two bit Tyrant.

    That man had the gall to tell everyone last year to turn off there AC’s then was caught using a homemade AC on a stand to cool his parked in his driveway SUV.

    Even after he was caught, he still did it. He is a jerk.
