    Thanks SJ, I’ll be sure to mend my bigoted ways. Maybe attend one of your tolerance classes?

  • Ratboy

    WOW! Where DO they keep coming from? :shock: :lol:

  • usa8888

    BS–the majority of economist agree with all of Obama’s policies. In fact, the right wing stance is embarrassing, indicative of people who have not education…..BS –you have been sucked in …..

  • Bobbyv

    I often find that those who preach tolerance and make blanket statements on bigotry are often the most intolerant. People who sit on the sidelines while certain African Americans are criticized as not being “black enough” because they happen to be conservative, or let women get trashed because they dare criticize a powerful D. I am far from perfect but spare me the lectures. Bigotry does not have a color, gender, or Party.

  • Bsotgnw

    Please the proof is in the pudding. Lowest participation rate in recent history. I remember the dems ranking on Bush for 5.5% unemployment (“unacceptable”) if we had had this level of unemployment for this long with this level of spending and stimulas you would be calling for impeachment! thats the heigth of hipocratsy!

  • Ratboy

    Yep Obama is operating at his BEST!…………. unfortunately his best is TOTAL INCOMPETANCE! :shock:

  • Cheryl Lynn

    I wonder if HLN will have the Zimmerman trial? That should hold some attention particularly since it will be in Florida the way they allow prison videos etc. Still won’t beat Fox however, who will recap the trial nightly.

  • mikey o

    How sad you have to add two networks to beat fox news. Man thats go to hurt

  • usa8888

    Completely wrong, BS—-read my piece above about the recession and hopefully you will understand. Also, keep the right wing from obstructing and jobs will come quicker. Things are going well in spite of the right wing obstruction. The Fed is doing an excellent job….and jobs are growing, as are commercial and individual loans, capital investment. Even with the backwardness of the right wing GOP with virtually no education in economics, things are beginning to get started. But, the right wing GOP will continue to try to ruin our economy…so it won’t be easy!!!!!! Also, this last recession was the WORST in 70 years and almost ruined the country (ie, the bank and real estate fraud)…..it takes a long time to recover, especially if you have looney right wingers trying to do exactly opposite of what’s needed to recover.

  • usa8888

    Rat–speak up. the cat’s still got your tongue…

  • Ralph Hahn

    Now, I understand why most of the long-time posters have left. Soon, I will be gone. And the far-lefties won’t have anyone to argue with but themselves. Perhaps, the most fun would be just to read all of their b.s. and see if any of their a-hole buds reacts negatively to their own kind? We should just be lurkers on this new site. It will be similar to: If a jackass falls in the woods, would anyone hear? LOL

  • Ratboy

    Like I have always said Ralph, WE CANT FIX STUPID!…………… but Obama got their vote!

  • mikey o

    @USA8888 Told it was worst recession since the great depression we need to spend 800 billion to keep unemployment from going over 8% and should be under 6% now . So by Obama stanndards $800 billion Stimulus was a failure, Dont say it wasn’t big enough Obama control congress and could have gotten any amount he wanted the right couldnt stop it. So why did it fail ???

    So if Banks and real estate commit fraud why hasn’t our AJ sent anyone to jail it still a crime right ? Could it be they are protecting their buddies the 1% like Jack Lew work at Citigroup got tax payer money and is our Treasurer now ? Or is Holder to busy going after states that want to secure thier borders and stop election fraud ?

  • Bsotgnw


    I guess if I look in Obamas budget I’ll find all the jobs proposals…oh thats right he has no budget… what no budget? for four years?… that no way to run a country!

    I’m going to have to go with idiot alert!!!

  • UpAndOver

    Dr. Drew ON CALL should run over and check on Piers Morgan Tonight…

  • Ratboy

    Hey Mikey, the loons that talk about the banks can’t spit out the name BARNEY FRANK!

  • mikey o

    @ratboy Oh yes the Dems that contol congress from 2006 to 2008 and Frank was in charge of the banking committee likes his counterpart Mr. Dodd on the senate side. who got a sweet heart of a deal from Countrywide before they went belly up. Thats go to hurt the liberal logic

  • Bsotgnw


    Please provide the “ecconomists” that agree leave out Paul Krugman when I want to get a laugh in a meeting all I have to do is say “Paul Krugman” and I get a group of rotflmao!

  • usa8888

    To the uneducated right wing: the stimulus WAS a success but was not enough given the severity of the recession. Plus the right wing in the House tried to block all parts of the stimulus. The majority of economists agree on this–it worked. The right wing argues from ABSURD points of view such as: cutting spending in a recession is good for the economy and grows jobs. Of course, this is WRONG. It’s exctly oppostie. I defy any rught winger to show me how cutting spending during a bad recession or depression grows jobs and the economy. If you can, I will ask Glen Beck to send you one of his gold bars…
