    This just in: the right fringe woted against the Violence Against Women Act which just passed the House by GOP moderate and dem votes. The right fringe still is waging its WAR ON WOMEN…

  • usa8888

    The right wing has virtually no education or knowldege of economics. They have been erroneously saying inflation would kill us for 5 years now with nothing happening. They follow the extremist John Birch Society lunatic philosphy which argues against the Federal Reserve System and its monetary policy. They operate in an educational vacuum–which is why you find many of them supporting creationism, etc….

    *Internet edges TV networks as public’s source for news…

    Now isn’t that a shock?

    Bye bye Walter Cronkite, Brian Williams and Scott Pelley. Hello Google, Yahoo and Drudge.

    A new Rasmussen Reports poll finds that traditional network news continues to fall as the nation’s source for news. The internet now is a bigger source of news for Americans than network TV, by a point, 25 percent to 24 percent.

    The demand for oil is on the downswing in china, India and the US. The price of gas is artificially manipulated. If Coffee knew anything about corellation analysis, he would know this. He doesn’t; but I’m told he can drink a mean cup of coffee……

    This woman is on CRACK!!!
    and by the way, if Gov jobs are lost they woll only be the ones that the king put in place to lower the unemplyment numbers anyway!!! :shock: :lol:

    Democratic Congresswoman: Sequester Could Cause ‘Over 170 Million Jobs’ To Be Lost

    On Thursday, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA), flanked by her fellow Congressional Democrats, said during a press conference that the mandatory budget cuts contained within the sequester could cost the nation “170 million jobs.”

    Waters warned that even Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke has called the sequestration cuts “a great setback” to the economic recovery.

    “We don’t need to be having something like sequestration that’s going to cause these job losses – over 170 million jobs that could be lost,” Waters said.

  • usa8888

    Hey, Rat–right wing accomplishments?????

  • Ratboy

    Now there is a CRACK head here!!!! One of the reasons for the rising gas prices is the HIGHER DEMAND in China so the oil companies are selling it there at higher prices!!

    It is official!! The class idiot has NO NONE ZERO NADA ZIP knowledge of anything!!!!

    Gabriel, You can’t look at one quote or even the three times this STATEMENT of Jesus’ is in the bible and say “see rich people can’t get into heaven.”

    I’m terribly sorry. I was under the impression that a transcript from Jesus himself would be more important than your arbitrary and personal interpretation. Hahaha.

  • Coffee Steve

    Hey Rats?

    I have to leave in a minute to go to the Kentucky Center For The Arts and walk around and see some really dumb abstract stuff, can you go in my place?

  • Coffee Steve

    Oh Oh,

    *Report: Mich. Gov. To Announce State Takeover of Detroit

  • Bobbyv

  • Coffee Steve

    Good points not to mention that, Lazarus, Abraham, Jacob, David, & Salomon and a few others were among the richest men on Earth.


    These people openly practiced a culture of racism, human sacrifice, pedophilia, murder, and genocide and a reasonable person should wish to have nothing in common with them. Actually, the entire old testament is a poorly conceived attempt at advancing the principle ideas of racism and other fiendish deeds.

    Cathy has been fooled again–the refineries are closing to put more money in the pockets. They allege it’s for changing over to summer grade gas, but that’s a ruse. They are bilking the consumers. It’s that simple….

    You should buy refinery stocks, not, do your research do not just make things up.
