    If the right wing Robme and Lian Ryan were in charge, we would be in GREAT DEPRESSON ##2……Keep the right wing out of Obama’s way!!!!!!
    Right wing priorities:
    1) eliminate birth control and support the Personhood Amendment
    2) eliminate gun background checks so more criminals and lunatics can get assault weapons and murder more children and adults
    3) give big tax breaks to billionaires with yachts and private jets
    4) replace science with creationism and bible study
    5) eliminate Social Security, Medicare, the EPA, the FDA, the Federal Reserve, etc.
    6) embrace racism, bigotry and general backward thinking
    7) worship lunatics like Slimebaugh, Beck, Hannity and send them money
    8) attend the CPAC Comedy Convention
    9) watch Faux News–the propaganda arm of the right wing (bias 24/7)
    10) ruin the economy by cutting spending in a recession or depression
    11) Obstruction, obstruction, obstruction

  • usa8888

    Billo is on in every retirement home in the rural South–it’s mandatory……

  • Ralph Hahn

    Lies, lies, lies, lies and lies. But, consider the source?

  • Ralph Hahn

    You want to call people in the 25-54 and 35-64 demos OLD? Consider the facts that 25-year olds are obviously in the 25-54 demo, and 35-year olds are in the 35-64 demos.

    Just reading ussr666’s top post makes me want to vomit, then shower for an hour.

  • Ratboy

    Idiot Alert IDIOT ALERT!!


  • Ratboy

    Ralph, he wears a pretty blue pull over shirt and his dad’s sunglasses and has been posting the same crap since before the election!

    Dung de Dung Dung!! :lol:

  • Laurence Glavin

    What happened to Jane Velez-Mitchell and Nancy Grace? The former had a million total viewers Thursday and Nancy Grace very close to that figure. Now, way down? I have no information on the murder case they’re following except that they are. Did the verdict come down?

  • Raz

    Wow, USA8888, I feel so sorry for you. It must be terrible to live in such a hateful little world that you have so little good to say.

  • usa8888

    This just in: 70% of hannity’s audience is over 65. Rachel slaps Hannity again in the demo…………

  • Raz

    This just in: 70% of hannity’s audience is over 65. Rachel slaps Hannity again in the demo…………

    Except it took her all week to do it.

  • Raz

    Poor little creature

  • usa8888

    Raz–things are looking very well, thank you . Obama/Biden trounced Lian Ryan and Robme; the economy is headed in the right direction despite the right’s trying to ruin it every step of the way; the American people support all of Obama’s policies; Obama just captured Bin laden’s PR man–and he’s talking; the Stock Market is at all time highs (hope you weren’t watching Fox Fake Business or you would have lost a TON of MONEY). Mark2 stated 40 accomplishments by Obama so far. I won’t repeat here….

    The Rat can’t state one accomplishment of the right wing GOP and neither can anyone else……

  • Ratboy

    For a good laugh, got to ask dot com and google usa8888. Then go down the list and read some of the ABC blog posts from a year ago and last april and june and you will see he has not gotten any new material in a LONG LONG time!!! :lol: :lol: :lol:

    Dung de Dung Dung!!! :lol:

  • Ratboy

    Then if you google the little teen age mutant dung beetle you will see his picture at the Justin tv site with his cute little blue pull over shirt and his dad’s sunglasses!

  • usa8888

    This just in: Fox’s audience keeps getting older and older, nothing wrong with that, but it’s a fact. The moderator of the site should ask Nielsen to break out the numbers better…..when Nielsen’s numbers reflect the Internet, too, this will REALLY adversely impact Fox’s demographics…….

  • moncon

    Looks like Matthews and the Reverend should start looking for new jobs because they stink at the ones they have now. Nothing but hateful spewing and insults going on from them.

  • usa8888

    Rat–what if you are wrong? I have lots of sunglasses, but none like you are referring to….

  • usa8888

    Rat–your powers of deduction are superior, but not superlative……

  • usa8888

    Rat–now how ’bout the right wing accomplishments we talked about?????

  • usa8888

    Hey Rat–do you know my old friend Justin Bieber???
