    Hey , Rat–what do you think? Could you live in central Africa????

  • Van

    We will see what happens in few years when Obama care kicks in an you need a good doctor. Remember, you don’t have to be educated to turn $1 into $10 but be smart and wise. I’m out of here and have fun posting to yourself.

    The market is down because Chicken Little is running around telling everyone the sky is falling. Instead of keeping his a$$ in the White House and working out a deal with the Senate.

    Oh, I forget… Obama doesn’t want a deal. He wants it all his way. More taxes on the rich and more spending.

  • Bsotgnw


    What do the best states for business have in common.
    1. Republican Govonors
    2. Ballanced budgets
    3. Right to work


  • usa8888

    The market went down because of right wing politics in Italy….

  • usa8888

    BS–how many times have I told you that balanced budgets are exactly what you do NOT want in a recession or depression…it doens’t create jobs or grow the economy…..

  • AppleStinx


    Thanks. And thank God for sound walls. :grin: Cold girls who kill, well, I can always hook them up with Hillbilly. :wink:

  • Mr Gone

    Interesting ….
    No one has bragged about MSNBC winning the one demo in that one hour at 9pm
    I believe it is expressed as them being “on fire”.

  • Dreamer

    I know some will not like this but I do not care.
    To Lbsles,
    Ie. post @ 2:48
    I very rarely read your posts anyway but leaving one as that,
    you will be forever skipped over.
    Lbsles = usa8888

  • 1966

  • Dreamer

    Sorry, mobile.

    I’m too smart to put my money in the market. It’s full of fake money. I have a stash of gold that was bought years ago. Take those stocks to the store and see what they buy you. They will be worth the paper they are printed on.

    I have playing money in the market, a friend and I invested $1600 when the market hit bottom. Waiting for Obama to leave office for my stocks to really rebound…and I bought 700 shares of Kodak at 20 cents a share for when they come out of bankruptcy and the stocks go to $3 a share…when $300 become $4200? lol

  • Stan T.


    What I’ve heard about the 200 point drop in the market is due to the Italians elected even more liberal politicians than they had before, so more spending for Italy. THis means that they will probably be kicked out of the EU to save that, for the meantime…and a major crash for anyone connected to the Italian economy.

  • sj

    Ibsles, much of a Republican Shill are we? Much of a Propaganda troll for the Extreme far Right wing nuts? It must be a tiring job. You must not have another job or a life. Amusing and a bit pathetic.

  • sj

    Ratboy, your name definitely reflects your views. Yawn.

  • Dreamer

    Now that sounds like Jeff. haaha

  • ThePlanisWorking

    Replicans. Whine whine piss moan conspiracy conspiracy false information
    Non “fact based” journalism. Fox bs. Anger
    Anger bitterness. I’ve checked these little posts
    For years and they’re still the same. Thanks to
    To your right wing nutter faction which has drowned
    Out any logic or reason you’re becoming the Whigs
    2012 was a slaughter. Boss rove despairs over reality
    When the fake fact machine ran into reality. Ill
    Tell you there used to be moderate republicans
    And I believe personally in fiscal discipline
    But your lying cheating (yeah we can’t win on policy
    So take away people’s rights to vote) war mongering party
    Is driving itself off a cliff. Bravo! Don’t get me started
    On the mysoginst drug addict that leads your pathetic party
    Yes there’s a point to this screed and it is simply this;
    There are 2 kinds of republicans left. Really rich greedy people
    And those who I will generously refer to as under informed. Nothing’s
    Going to change the first group but it looks like
    A good deal of the ignorant/willingly misinformed
    Are starting to either wake up and be pissed they
    Were misled so maliciously or are going further down
    The nut road. I suspect the majority of you republican
    Wack jobs are not in the really rich white guy club
    So my sincere hope for the rest of you is that you
    Wake up get educated and tap into that wacky world
    Those among us who have original thought and the ability
    To reason and join us in REALITY.
