Biden get pass the media says that Joe just being Joe and laugh about it. Oh yeah no double standard here

  • clinging to my god

  • keith mcmee

    USA8888… Do you work?? Or even have a job? you”re in this dump every week I check in,,. That tells me, you”re either and old deadbeat.. or a thumbsucking little pubescent twerp.. I”ll go with the latter.

  • Cathy

    Ratboy, I only got a dusting of snow too. Looking at the post times looks like the liberals were out in full last night. Guess, they had nothing better to do then Blog on a Friday night.

  • d.d.

    Morning everyone .

    Sorry you are still in chilly territory Rats, & Cathy. I’d almost trade you. It’s 60 degrees & will climb during the day, but, all that means about now is monumental weeding ahead. I finished 1/4 of my 3 gardens. Letmethink , chickweed & hen peck …#*%# Every year I say I have to cut down , &, every year I’m repeating this Herculean task. Stupid is , as stupid does.


    THANKS, H.B. on Benghazi info.


    I watched fox news for a day and couldnt stop laughing, how do people watch that or call it news?

    I have to admit I don’t watch a lot of TV , but, if it isn’t too intrusive , what do you do for a living ?


    Detroit Enriches Wall Street As City Goes Bust

    Excellent article by Walter Russell Mead for those that like to read.


    The Senate has a barbershop. Has lost $5.25 million in last 15 yrs. & it has survived attempts to kill it

    The barbershop of the U.S. Senate has run deficits of approximately $350,000 a year for each of the last 15 years. It Senate provides government-subsidized cuts, shaves, and shines

    Why not cut this ?


    Gardening duds on , so, out I go.

    Yea I was kinda watching them. Dung Beetle had a good time with himself, Jeffie didn’t disappoint with some real classy name calling and Mark2 again posted a list and left out the important parts! So all in all it was looney tunes on steroids! :lol:

  • 1966

    good morning
    sunny and 22 degrees here.

  • ninja

    DR Ben Carson speaking at CPAC on Fox News

  • usa8888

    THis just in: Fox Fake News tries to hide the headline of Colorado passing 5 gun control measures as the gun lobby extremists threatened the lives of congress people there. Some of these gun kook morons will be going to prison….

  • usa8888

    As the comedy show continued at CPAC Rat was again unable to deleiver ANY accomplishments of the right wing GOP. He had his chance…..

  • usa8888

    At the comedy show (CPAC), the Trumper played to a half full house and said we needed to get “tough”–yes, that a a birth certificate will get him far right fringe votes……

  • usa8888

    La Pierre, attempting to vie for the lead in “Phantom of the Opera,” again spewed absurdities that his NRA membership disagrees with—many of the these appear on Fox Fake News, the mouthpiece of far right lunacy……

  • usa8888

    Did you hear that Jeb Bush is catigating the GOP for their exclusionary policies and backward thinking–yes, very interesting, of course THAT didn’t appear on Fox Fake News, you have to go to a REAL news network for this…..

  • TZCA

    good morning
    sunny and 60°F here :twisted:

  • usa8888

    This just in: Rob Portman, celibrated GOP memeber, supports gay marriage….This didn’t appear on Fos Fake News……..

  • 1966

    bite me !!! LOL

  • TZCA

    :razz: 1966

    Whuh? ‘Tis not my fault!

  • usa8888

    I realize most of the right wing was at the CPAC comedy show last night and missed Mark2’s GOP accomplishments so I reprint them here…thought Mark2 was right on. Maybe this will give Rat an idea or start on his accomplishments.
    @usa8888 “GOP Accomplishments”

    Well here are some Bills that Republicans voted Against, Blocked, or attempted to Block:

    -Health Care for the 9/11 First Responders who got sick from being at Ground Zero
    -Veteran’s Jobs Bill
    -Benefits for Homeless Veterans
    -Improvements to the GI Bill
    -Stop Loss payments for Deployed Soldiers
    -Improvements to Department of Defense domestic violence programs.
    -Department of Defense recognition of spouses of members of the Armed Forces.
    -Department of Defense recognition of children of members of the Armed Forces.
    -Enhancements to the Troops-to-Teachers Program.
    -Fiscal year 2011 increase in military basic pay.
    -Improving aural protection for members of the Armed Forces.
    -Comprehensive policy on neurocognitive assessment by the military health care system.
    -Protection of child custody arrangements for parents who are members of Armed Forces deployed in support of a contingency operation.
    -Anti-Rape Amendment to the Defense Appropriations Bill
    -Repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”
    -Wall Street Reform
    -Tax on Companies that ship jobs overseas
    -American Recovery and Reinvestment Act
    -Unemployment extension bill
    -The Jobs Bill
    -The Small Business Jobs Act
    -Fair Pay Act of 2009 Lily Ledbetter bill

    And that’s why the Republican Party is dying out.
