    Has anyone told Bill Oreilly after his explosion with Allen Colmes,that pressure reducing valves “pop off valves” can be purchased at Home Depot for around twenty bucks

  • Mark2

    @Cathy “And dumba$$ like Mark2 think it shows the dems are for women and republicans aren’t because republican see that money is being wasted.”

    Oh come now, Cathy. You shouldn’t have such a potty mouth you little dirty birdie. Are you trying to go all ‘Bill O’Reilly’ on me now? LOL

    You and Bill have to learn how to maintain your composure. Ok, Sweetie.

    Women voters 2012

    Obama = 55%
    Romney = 44%

    Ouch!!! That’s gonna leave a mark!

    Bill is pointing out the lies. It is about time. That was great , was it not?

  • Jeff

    The Catholic Archdiocese is laying off 10 percent of its employees and planning to close or consolidate five schools.

    Cardinal Francis George says the archdiocese has been running a deep deficit over the past four years and these new steps will correct the problem.

    Boehner – protective detail in tow – was spotted drinking and smoking Saturday with a young couple at an outdoor tiki bar

  • Mark2

    @John Morris,

    Yes, even Charles Krauthammer offered to give him some anti-anxiety pills.

  • Mark2

    @DougZ “Bill is pointing out the lies.”

    What lies? That Medicare is not a program. The last time I looked it was a program.

  • Jeff

    The Violence Against Women act was to make Republicans look bad…

    Not too bright!!

  • UpAndOver

    FNC WINS….Move along folks, no ‘new’ news here….LOL…

  • Mark2

    I’m just enjoying the fact that the Republicans are fighting with each other on the drones issue.

  • Cathy

    53% for Romney
    47% for Obama

    98% of black women voted for Obama and that is the only reason Obama get the women vote.

    Married women vote:
    57% for Romney
    43% for Obama

    Yep, many of the single women were fooled or are fools. Read the bill and speak for the waste of money, Mark2.

  • Cathy

    An act that costs over 507 million to help each victim and hasn’t decreased violence isn’t bright. But the democrats are celebrating it.

  • Ralph Hahn

    I just can’t read the rest of the crap here tonight. The Dumbdowned Duo of Mark2 and usa8888 are SO full of it, repeating the same garbage, day in and day out. A few more towed the lines of the Heroes of the Stupid. They are that way because they haven’t figured out a way how to leave their parents’ basement and move in to a plave of their own.

    This is helpless.

    @Coffee Steve Yes the North Korea make massive troop and equipment movements along the DMZ all the time. They usally have about million troops close to the DMZ that could crossover into the south at anytime. Usally they want to deal to get some food aid. I think they are trying to test the new South Korean leader (first women leader) to see what she will do and if they will give them anything.

    “Venezuela is our future if we’re not careful. Some people might say it’s here already. In fact, are we not watching the people of this country become poorer under the guise of everything being fair? Are we not watching the people of this country become poorer under the guise of equality?” -Rush Limbaugh

  • lbsles

    “Do you think it might bother the left that, while the country of Venezuela is basically a sewer, Chavez is worth $2 billion that he did not have when he assumed the presidency? Do you think it might bother somebody like Sean Penn or Oliver Stone or Diane Sawyer or Piers Morgan or Barbara Walters or Larry King?” -Rush Limbaugh

  • lbsles

    “What good is the cause if it can only be propped up by lies? It isn’t any good. That’s the problem with liberalism and socialism. It has to be propped up by lies. It has to be propped up with optics and false images and perceptions. I’m not into that. I want all this to be genuine.” -Rush Limbaugh

  • 1966

    claude king.

  • Cathy

    Ralph Hahn, I know that there are smart liberals. We just don’t see them on this site.

    Mark2 is full of it. His answer to everything is Obama won. I don’t care. The press and others should point out the problems with acts when they see them. If you can’t see the problem with an act that only addresses half of the issue, costs over $507 million per victim and hasn’t decreased the problem in over 20 years; You are blinded by politics.
    If the Violence against Women Act didn’t have a $660 million a year cost to it, I’d say hey cover the men too, then let it go.

    Liberal women show their stupidity daily. One second they’re saying, “We are strong independent self supporting women. We are just as good as men in every way.” Then the next second they’re saying, “We need a special law to protect us from men, they are so much stronger and they have all the money.”

    Well I have news for you liberal women, NO ONE CAN GIVE YOU POWER, YOU HAVE TO EMPOWER YOURSELF! Spend more time with your sons and raise better men!

    RUSH: There are a couple of polls out here today, and they greatly conflict with each other. They are about Obama’s approval numbers. Now, the first poll is from Reuters. It’s a Reuters/Ipsos poll, and according to this poll, approval for Obama has crashed. He’s down to 43% approval in the Reuters poll. The other poll that’s out is from Rasmussen. The Rasmussen poll has Obama’s approval at above 50%. Now, there was another poll. It was Gallup earlier this week that had Obama’s approval number at 48%. It was the first time he was under 50% in that poll in quite a while.

    So two out of three have Obama’s approval number falling, but the Rasmussen breakdown illustrates the Limbaugh Theorem.

    ** Listen to these two items. Obama’s net approval rating remains above 50%.

    Second item: 29% of likely voters believe that government spending cuts hurt the economy. So let’s round the number up and make it easy.

    30% of the people believe that cutting government spending will hurt the country.

    On the other side of that, by a 50% to 27% margin likely voters believe that increasing government spending hurts the economy.

    Now, right there we have the Limbaugh Theorem on display for one and all to see in the Rasmussen poll.

  • Jeff

    Ah Ralph Hahn, the consistent voice of stupidity, with the face to protect it….

    Be gone!
