    Ratboy, :evil:UNCLE! :oops: He is a child with a smart phone.:roll:
    Now stop picking on me before a :cry:

    Drug and gang related crimes are the number one drain on the U.S. Health System costing $406 billion annually in medical care.
    While, the estimated per year for obesity is $190 billion to the annual healthcare price tag.
    We can save twice as much by tackling crime instead of stepping on personal freedom.

    Mikey O. Like your idea about USA offering/supply nukes to Japan help defend itself.
    My son has this joke about the USA debt: “The best thing the USA can do is sell half of our debt to China and half of our debt to Japan.” It’s the old the enemy of my enemy is my friend.

    Ratboy… NOBODY likes Ryan’s plan. OK! OK! UNCLE UNCLE!!!!
    :cry: I’m sorry, so sorry :cry:
    :oops: that I was such a fool :oops:

    What are you smokin’, Rat? Nobody prefers congressional repubs over Obama’s budget!!

    Grasshopper, why not tell the truth. Obama has no budget. Spend is it.

  • Stan T.

    Wolfe Blizter only get 78 in the key demo? O’Rielly gets more in the key demo than Wolf gets TOTAL….has Pierce Morgan been hositing his show for him? lol

  • AppleStinx

    How did the name change work for Piers Morgan on its first day as ‘Piers Morgan Live’? Is a name change a game changer in cable news?

  • Cathy

    Liberal are right there was no voting fraud in 2012.

    She admitted voting twice in the presidential election last November, and now, Obama supporter Melowese Richardson has been indicted for allegedly voting at least six times. She also is charged with illegal voting in 2008 and 2011.
    The 58-year-old veteran Cincinnati poll worker, indicted Monday, faces eight counts of voter fraud. Two others, one of whom is a nun, have been charged separately.
    Richardson had admitted on camera to a local TV station, “Yes, I voted twice,” claiming she was concerned that her vote would not count. She also said there “was no intent on my part to commit any voter fraud.”
    “I’ll fight it for Mr. Obama and Mr. Obama’s right to sit as president of the United States,” she proclaimed in the interview.
    Officials charged that she voted in her own name by absentee ballot and also in person at the polls, but Hamilton County Prosecuting Attorney Joseph Deters said she also is charged with voting in the name of five other people in various elections.

    I’m sure CNN thought they should assure their audience that he was in fact ‘ALIVE’…LOL….

  • betty

    …USR666 would be Tap-Dancing and singing Opera if those Zillions of
    Seasoned Citizens would pretty-please tune in to Sharpie,Mr.Edd,Larr OD,and
    Rakell…but those Dudes are really sinking!….awww, poor old USR 666 !!!

  • betty

    USR666 is jealous of those Seasoned Citizens and envious of the High ratings
    FOX NEWS gets over the MsNBC crowd…USR666 sez “it’s not supposed to be
    this way”….Bwwwwwwaaaaaaaaaa. LOL.

  • Ratboy

    Cathy I am glad to see you have come back to reality. :lol: you are just a better person than me by giving the benefit of the doubt to the poor and unfortunate. :lol:

    @Cathy “Drug and gang related crimes are the number one drain on the U.S. Health System costing $406 billion annually in medical care.”

    And yet another reason to ban handguns and legalize drugs. Thanks for the assist.

  • DB

    Ralph, could you show us the 1% of 8888’s posts that are not bull-hit? :-)

  • Ratboy

    Take the guns and give em drugs! Sure fire solution!! :shock:

  • Jeff D.

    Ever notice that Mr Ed the talking Ass gets the best ratings on his show
    when he’s gone?

  • DB

    Fox is really pulling away from MSNBC. Prime time shows on MSNBC are generally below 900K. Their election bump is over and they are actually dropping to their lowest levels ever. Only a complete idiot could argue that Fox is not kicking MSNBC’s rear(unfortunately we have several complete idiots that have invaded the site). I don’t think Ed or Al will last a lot longer. O’donnel may even get his 8pm slot back but he won’t clear 700k either. Morning Joe’s ratings are headed towards 100k– he might be gone soon too or at least Mika will be able to stay home and take care of her senile father.

    Just don’t make it too big or the loon mayor will get you!

    I just heard that people 55 and under will not have traditional Medicare, but the program will be voucherized. Oh, goodie, take your voucher and beg ins. co’s for coverage…then….you can come up with an additonal six K. above and beyond your voucher. Works for the 50 mill dollar CEO, just not for you or anyone else. That’s the way they want it and that’s the way it will be. I was just informed by my workplace that I will be paying 5 K. a year in ‘out of pocket’ expenses. When I try to find out what that means, I get the run around verbally and in writing. Round and round you go and still no answers. My understanding is that if I go to the hospital, then I share a percentage of the cost…80/20… 5 K. could go ‘poof’, esp. if there are a number of hospital stays in one year. Alan Grayson was right, “If you get sick, die quickly”. Cheers!

  • tvwatcher

    What just happened to CNBC why they heck do they have treasure detectives?? Why not just hand Fox dominance in the Business news as well..

  • Ratboy

    Hey 1nancy2!
    Sounds like Obumblecare is work in real good for ya!
    Sorry Darlin but………….we told ya so!
    Don’t watch so much Current and MSNBC and you will understand what is happening a lot better. (I told ya that a long time ago :) )

  • usa8888

    Hey, Rat, how’s that 100% healthcare cost increase every 10 years working out for you?????? The right wing GOP is content with this….
