    Hi, everyone

    How can you have duplicate copies before you post anything ?


    This just in : A surprise to no one . Featherweight 4 8’s can’t read.

    D.D.–is talking nonsense again like the other right wingers. Woodward has been shown to be misspeaking as the actaul e-mails showed.

    – –

    This morning, I noted that — taken in context — what Gene Sperling wrote to Bob Woodward “DIDN’T” qualify as an outright “threat,” at least to me. (True)

  • Coffee Steve

    Good Morning Everyone

    I AGREE!!! Coffee Steve done know diddly squat about nuttin!!!!!

    I saw that :mrgreen: LOL

    Ahhh so the cuts have begun. So we’ll have to see how President Obama’s great cutting plan works.

  • Coffee Steve

    Morning d.d.

    My hometown paper (liberal) is writing a huge story blasting the White House about the fact that this President may go down on history as an 8 year President never passing a budget.

    Plus some of the early jobs numbers coming out in March may show it’s going back to recession once again (I don’t think we ever really got out of it). Plus if the Government starts the 30 day layoff’s it could spike Un-Employment again.

  • Coffee Steve

    *Janet Napolitano: I had no role in DHS decision to release illegal immigrants before sequester
    (Once again, we have decisions being made, yet no one in this WH knows who made them?)

    *Obama donor in process of buying up and ‘destroying’ America’s top pro-gun media outlets
    (Based on new gun sales and new gun owners, can you say “FLOP”

    *Jay Leno On Obama Realizing First Term Mistakes: :’Apparently He Does Watch Fox News’
    *Projected Growth in Unpaid Bills Shows State of Illinois on Path to Total Breakdown
    First Detroit now a whole State. Notice how the stories about Cities and whole counties going bankrupt has stopped? What a wonderful press we now have. (Pravda)

    *Joe Scarborough: Bush White House Threatened Me
    What a Wus!!!

    Thanks Rats, you sent the snow here :-)

  • sunshine

    Waving to my friends……g’morning!

    Things are starting to be exposed and I am feeling a bit better.
    I was losing hope.

  • Coffee Steve

    Good Morning Sunshine :-)

  • Mikey O

  • Ratboy

    Goooooood Morning!!
    Another night of wack jobs and BS. Maybe it IS better when MSDNC wins the day!!! :lol:

    I can see the difference already! Driving in the bridges were crumbeling and the roads were falling into sink holes! I watched birds fly into bldgs and tha ants are marching one by one! :shock: SEQUESRTER!!!!!!!!!!

  • Ratboy

  • Coffee Steve

    Good Morning MickeyO & Ratdude
    *Dont think they will go after Lanny Davis thou they would have to deal with the Clintons.

    I think these group of amatures will go after anybody. Remember now, according to the Obama camp Bill Clinton is a racist :-)

    Good luck at the meeting and don’t doze off LOL

  • Mikey O

    @Ratboy Sequesrter not offical yet Obama has to sign the cuts, will do that we he has the brief meeting with leaders of house and senate this morning before off for tee time.

    Miss you idoit alert last night he was in true form. :(

  • Coffee Steve


    26.2% in Spain…

    Britain slides toward new recession…

    Medicine, dental to rise 20% in UK…

    And now with the United States going into austerity mode look for a falling Market amd Fitch and Moody’s to downgrade maybe a full point soon on our Already de-grading rating.

  • Coffee Steve

    *ineteen months after it was put into place, the sequester has arrived.

    Barring unexpected developments, President Obama will issue an order at some point on Friday — perhaps as late as 11:59 p.m. — cancelling some $85 billion in spending across the federal government.

    I thought of buyint a song from ITunes and sending it to Washington, the song?

    “Can you feel the Love Tonight” Hehehehehehe

  • Mikey O

    @Coffee Steve I feel Obama camp wont dare try to slime Lanny Davis, why I am betting Hillary knows a few juicy secrets on the Obama Admin. One big one is Benghazi.
