    @SP “Obama worked for government his whole life Community Organizer, State Senate, United States Senate, President. That bone head never even ran a hot dog stand!”

    What does that say about Ronald Reagan…lol. He lied for a living as a Hollywood actor. Then again, that’s why the Republican Party sought him out…he was a good ACTOR, I mean PUPPET!

  • usa8888

    ibsles–why did La Pierre flip flop on gun checks????

  • Cathy

    O’Reilly kicked a$$. The only reason Ed is on at 8pm not later is because O’Reilly would kicked Maddows a$$ if she was at 8pm

    MSNBC should move Maddow to 10pm it would be nice to see Greta go up against Maddow. MSNBC may be able to win that time spot more then they loss it with that change.

  • ninja

    @uas888…………..Why was BO against same sex marriage just four years ago? Just four years ago didn’t want to take guns away. Four years ago close Gitmo, cut deficient in half. Time to read the bill before we pass it. C – Span instead of close door meetings. Ect……..

  • usa8888

    ibsles–the right wingers are causing the economy to contract and creating job losses… Explain how cutting spending in a recession or depression creates jobs or grows the economy…feel free to call Slimebaugh…

  • usa8888

    Ninja–does extremist La Pierre want to stop police roadblocks because criminals will try to avoin them?

  • Sicilian Papa



    Decreased! that statement is insane. Averaging over 1 trillion in debt per year! Insane!

    Bush had one year, his last, he spent some money on one time expenditures that created a high deficit. You make out those budgets every year. Obama and Pelosi raised the spending through the roof the first year they controlled the country and they have kept the spending pretty much at that level.

  • usa8888

    Obama has been for same sex marriage inherently for years–he just didn’t want to startle right wingers like you….

  • usa8888

    Right wingers–your assault weapons would be like bb guns against the US government…so you won’t need them when you try to overthrow the gov… there is no 2nd amendment right involved….

  • Sicilian Papa

    Reagan understood the free market. There is no meat market like the Hollywood meat market. FREE ENTERPRISE!

    Obama couldn’t run a hot dog stand but the corrupt, secular, left wing, so-called objective media made him a President. Now we have to live with the consequences.

  • usa8888

    Sic Papa–how can you run a pizza joint when don’t know the difference between a credit and debit????

  • Mark2


    In 2001, we spent 366 Million on Defense. (Inflation adjusted would be 474 Million)

    We’re now spending over 900 Million on Defense.

    It’s time to cut spending…starting with Defense.

  • Cathy

    Reagan was educated at Eureka College, earning a Bachelor of Arts degree in economics and sociology. After graduating, Reagan moved first to Iowa to work as a radio broadcaster and then, in 1937, to Los Angeles where he began a career as an actor, first in films and later television. Reagan served as President of the Screen Actors Guild.

  • Sicilian Papa


    ALL lefties

    This balloon is going to burst! You own the corrupt, secular, left wing, so-called objective media so conservatives will get blamed. But you are still wrong! Your whole economic philosophy is a farce.

    When the crash comes people may just wise up to the libs and the media. Then you will be finished forever.

  • Sicilian Papa



    I run a construction company with starving sub-contractors. This is the first job many of us have had in a long while. Old money, someone pasted away. Who knows if any of us will get another job after this.

  • Ralph Hahn

    @usa8888: CONGRATS for having the worst grammar of anyone on this board, of all time: >>> This just in: Robin Kelly, the anti-NRA candidate running in the Chicago race, has beated the NRA candidate by a huge margin!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! <<<


    Dude, you are one dumbazz!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Sicilian Papa

    passed-not pasted

  • Cathy

    SP, you don’t understand. Every president makes spending commitments ten years out. So, Bush had Clinton spending commitments when he took office but because Bush was a republican, Clinton spending and his spending is combined.

    But for Obama any spending commitment that Bush made plus any increase that Obama added to the commitment is all written off to Bush.

  • Ralph Hahn

    HAS BEATED??!!! From now, ussr666, NO ONE will EVER take what you say seriously again!!!!

  • Cathy

    Mark2, How can you see we need to cut defense spending when Obama was just in Virginia saying that cutting defense spending would endanger the U.S.


    Many democrats are also saying we can’t cut defense.

    Will you liberals make up your minds!!!!!
