    Just an observation…

    Has anyone noticed that ever since Lian8888’s identity was exposed last week, he’s been using big words to make himself sound smarter?

    That is all.

  • dana

    Who is Dennis?? somebody must have the wrong blog or its usa88 doing this to throw us off…

  • dana

    Now Big Ed Schultz could go back to being a republican like he used to be…he kissed msnbc’s ass for big bucks, even converted to a liberal…

    Oh, the sky is falling, Big sky–the 4th grader is using big words…………

    Right wing priorities: Did I miss anything?
    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

    Answer the questions, you never do.

  • Dave Sky

    You can always tell you have someone pegged when they response with childish nonsense. :)

  • Chriscee

    Wonder if Sirius XM will ditch big eddy too? And please…Chris Hayes? MSNBC is grasping at this one. He barely gets 200,000 viewers. His new show will be called Down with Chris Hayes. Liberals over at MSNBC are surely desperate. How much longer will they hang on the sagging Chris Matthews??

  • Dave Sky


  • Chriscee

    When Sirius XM ditched their Talk Radio Channel 126….who ran Hannity, Beck, and a few other including Alan Colmes….I DITCHED SIRIUS XM. Cancelled my subscription and according to their website…so have lots of other people.

    Fox news needs to do more research before they run stories. They ran a story today about NASA paying 28,000 to 82,000 for interns.
    They compared an intern at NASA to an intern at their news station.
    I can’t believe they were that dumb and didn’t read the NASA site.

    The pay was based on a annually salary. No one is getting $82,000 for working the summer. These internships are for people with BSE, MSE, DE students of Aerospace engineering. Yep, Fox news compared a person who has is a Doctor of Engineering in Aerospace (a Doctor of Rocket Science) to a college junior studying Journalism.
    Yes, journalism skills are valued just as highly as engineering skills. :roll:
    Only the top colleges teach Aerospace engineering and all of these colleges have enough projects and non paid internships that students would not pay for relocation to work a non-paid internship.

  • usa8888

    This just in from Fox Fake News: Senate panel OKs assault weapons ban. Now it goes to a floor fight. Since the majority of the public and NRA members favor tighter gun restrictions, we need to take names of those right wingers who vote against the American people so we can out them in the next election……All right wingers in favor of disregarding the American people, raise you hand and state your name………….

  • usa8888

    This just in: Right wing kooks have threatened the lives of congress people favoring sensible gun laws in NY, Colorado, and California…these degenerates are coming out of their holes and most need to be locked up……

  • greece2

    usa8888 – 3 million less jobs and 48 million people on food stamps….. thank you mr. obama you are marvelous!

  • 1966

  • dana

    We already had a ban on assault rifles in the 90s…..didnt work..but i could see why usa88 is affraid of people with assault rifles…

  • Jeff D.
