    Let’s get rid of all the liberal trash !

    I had my fall out with the U.S. Catholic church years ago. However, I’m so happy for Latin American Catholics. These people have stood by their religious for years and Rome has finally noticed and rewarded them.

    The new Pope has eleven days to get ready for Holy week the largest religious event in Latin America and Spain.

    We Remember,
    We Celebrate,
    We Believe

  • Chriscee

    God Bless our New Pope Francis. May he bring peace and love that we all need so very badly in our lives.

    May he give America hope that we can say good bye to progressives and return American back to the God fearing country we once were. We are so in need of leadership….leadership that our founding fathers – would so bring us today. There absolutely has to be someone out there that can lead America back to where we were just a few short years ago…before Obama and his failures were put upon us.

    This is pray in your name Pope Francis.

    We qualify for the banjo player part, you qualify for Ned Beatty’s part. :grin:

    ‘Ed Show’ won both of its time slots in the A25-54 demo against CNN, but sadly ‘Hardball’ lost to ‘Situation Room’ and ‘Erin Burnett’ – and ‘Evening Express’ (sans trial?).

  • Chriscee

    TO USA8888—This is going to be the lAST time I respond to your idiocy. You are NOT worthy of me wasting anymore time on you. And when the rest on this board LEARN TO IGNORE you….things will be smooth here again.

    As to your post the previous day. YES Obamacare has caused our healthcare premiums under Aetna to RISE. It has NOTHING to do with Aetna – it has everything to do with REGULATIONS that Obamacare is going to implemented. We cannot expect our insurers to eat the rising costs of healthcare resulting from Obamacare. Obama knew this all along. Even the Veterinarians are going to feel the PAIN of Obamacare.

    Also AARP backed OBAMCARE in the beginning and LIED to seniors. LIED BOLD FACE to seniors. My mother in law healthcare has risen to the point of where she can no longer pay for most of her drugs…so my husband and I have picked up the additional cost for her.

    How dare you say Obamcare is NOT THE FAULT…When we know exactly it is.

    OBAMA LIED BOLD FACELY LIED….to the American people….and most of all to the SENIOR CITIZENS of this country.


    Have a lovely day..and lets hope when you grow old…someone is there to take care of you.

  • Chriscee

    @ Applestinx. I think it’s time for OLD TINGLES..to hang up the program. He’s falling and falling fast.

  • Cathy

    Ralph Hahn, Fox benefited more than CNN did for the Papal proceedings Of course believers don’t want to get their religious news from the atheist at CNN.

    Mike, Don’t you listen to Obama or USA8888. Rich people don’t invest. They sit on all that money. So, Obama has to tax them. Then he can use their money to improve the economy. ( Of course, I don’t believe this. But then I’m a FOOL who believes in God.)

    They are not trash. Just misinformed.

    Grasshopper does not believe anything he says. He might just be very smart and wants to see how the informed react.

    Grasshopper might be the smartest here by making everybody that knows answer his uneducated question

    then he is laughing at us.

  • Chriscee

    @Doug Z

    I am NOT going to give him the satisfaction! I’m going to IGNORE him from now on. He is not worthy of my posting time….I don’t like wasting my vauleable time on something SO MEANINGLESS as USA8888

  • Ratboy

    Maybe we were better off when the loons on the left DIDNT propose a budget!

    Proposed Dem Budget Increases Spending 62% Over Next Decade

    Senator Patty Murray, the Democratic chair of the Senate Budget Committee, finally released a budget today. Year over year, in this proposed budget, spending jumps dramatically.

    For instance, from this year’s budget to next year’s proposed budget, spending would increase by $116 billion. This year, the federal government will spend $3.599 trillion; under Murray’s budget, the federal government would be on track to spend $3.715 trillion.

    Over the next decade, spending under Murray’s budget would increase by 62 percent

  • UpAndOver

    We need a ‘pink’ liberal to lead all other liberals into the river…LOL…

  • UpAndOver

    The liberals always say the ‘Red States get more money back than they pay in’

    The fact is, of what they ‘get back’, 84% goes to the democrat controlled crime infested urban centers in the Red States….

  • d.d.



    I’m so sorry about your loss. I hope it wasn’t your dear mother in law. I ditto Sj in blessings to all.



    Reuters is reporting :

    Chrysler bankruptcy lawyer top pick for Detroit manager

    Kevyn Orr, a partner in Washington with the law firm Jones Day, is expected to be named to the post by Michigan Governor Rick Snyder this week.

    I’d like to see Detroit turn around & again become a city worth living in, but, that’s probably not being realistic.


    Nanny Bloomberg wouldn’t approve.

    A Sweet (and Secretive) Bailout for Big Sugar


    U.S. Department of Agriculture is considering buying 400,000 tons of sugar to help sugar processing companies avoid defaulting on $862 million in government loans, according to the WSJ.

    Which companies? We do not actually know. Somehow the sugar loans are a secret. The Department of Agriculture officially won’t say which companies have received loans. It won’t even say how many companies received loans.

    It’s pure special interest politics engaged in by both Bush & Obama.


    Have a nice night

  • usa8888

    I am going to ignore that usa8888—his posts are just like someone who is in the 4th grade….Seriously, what did you think of my economic forecast above…??? Right on, no? Right wingers, please pontificate…….

  • Ratboy

    Homework is done so now little Dung Dung can go out and play for a little bit.

  • Dreamer

    To: Chriscee,

    If nobody replied it would probably quit.

    D.D. Detroit is a large example of racial division and the problems it creates.
    Detroit will not recover until it’s racial problems are resolved. The black leadership in the city does not want the White suppression back in their city.
