    MSDNC – “Lean Forward…. far Enough So Your Head Is Up The Butt Of The Left Just Like Ours”

    MSNBC’s Alex Witt Allows Dem. Senator To Blame GOP, NRA For Assault Weapons Ban Failure

    Well, yesterday, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid told reporters he’d scrapped California Democrat Dianne Feinstein’s assault weapons ban for lack of votes. The Nevada Democrat noted he only had at most 40 votes out of 53 Democrats and two Democrat-caucusing independents. In other words, Republican votes are a non-factor, since the Democratic caucus is hardly sold on the idea to begin with. Yet the very next day, MSNBC’s Alex Witt allowed Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) to essentially blame the GOP and the NRA for the setback to the Left on gun control.

  • saywhat?

    I am just a Jesus freak, neither right nor left because we come from both. I wish all here a good one. I just learned however, that the head of the Colorado Corrections Department who was due to participate in the signing this morning, a set of gun laws there, was shot at point blank range in the chest at the front door of his home and was found dead there this morning. Many of those involved in Colorado legislature working on their states gun safety laws had been plagued by death threats while trying to make gun safety laws. Colorado has had Columbine, Aurora and now this. I hope whoever shot him will be caught and justice served and the others who are trying to do what their conscience tell them to do help their state will be kept safe and free from harm. My heart goes out to the Victim and to those left behind and to those others who have also had their lives threatened.

    @ Ibsles: Can someone tell what this first grader was attempting to say/

    from usa zero “he wants to spend #10 million sending right wing activists out to try to fool blacks, hispanics, and women into voting GOP…can you imagine”
    _______________________________________________________________________________Over the weekend the RNC as a response to their “GOP AUTOPSY REPORT” said they were going to spend 10million dollars in outreach programs to the various minority groups across the country because the independent research group said that these folks feel alienated from the GOP by their remarks and their policies. I hope I helped clear that up.

  • Hillbilly

    That radical left-wing Harry Reid has sided with the extremist La Pierre. He pulled the assault weapons ban from the gun bill. Harry thinks an AK-47 is needed to hunt rabbits. Tell me what good an AK-47 does against a F-16 jet? Harry is against what Nobama & 85% of the NRA members want. Harry & the left-wing stump humpers wants Nuclear bombs in every home.

  • Hillbilly

    Now the radical left-wing Harry Reid wants sequestration cuts to the defense dept eliminated. We spend more on defense than all the countries in the universe (yes that includes Mars, Venus, Pluto..etc) Harry Reid is a radical left-wing stump humper. Everybody knows we spend to much on defense, but good old Harry don’t think so.

    Israel teachers carry guns in class for their own protection, and female security walk on public beaches with rifles on their shoulders as well.

    Here’s a new joke for you: Mike huckabee hints at possible White House run……..
    Like I said, the right wing is essentially DEAD—–

  • Cathy

    Happy Birthday Coffee. The nicest people are born in March.

    Wisconsin authorities announced Tuesday they will shut down one of nation’s most popular nude beaches on weekdays after struggling for years to keep AppleStinx, Ninja and TZCA from scaring away other visitors.


  • RedbarSoup

    .Like I said, the left wing is essentially DEAD–

    what? You mean when Obama won….? I’m confused by your logic bro.

  • Letmethink

    Hello saywhat–I am a Jesus freak also. I am also a Tea Party far right dangerous extremist, and some other descriptions that I wont post– according to some. I think I am a nice person and a patriot–oh well–to each his own. Hope you have a great day also.
    Happy Birthday Coffee. Yes, you are a good one. Hope your team wins.
    HB you changed your avatar?
    Ibsles, Chambles in Tyler is a good place to call for answers about the rose questions. I have 40 roses bushes so hope it doesn’t hit here. I have some knock outs, but mostly Texas Super Star roses. There is always something in gardening but that is what keeps a gardener on his/her toes.

  • dana

    The Tea Party is Not dead…all members of the party still vote and donate money…

  • Ratboy

    @ Letmethink
    Soooo?? We got a deal??? Plug nickel, smoker, but you keep the snow! I aint gonna leave the offer on the table forever ya know! :lol:

  • dana

    I DONT GET IT:: The GOP seems to be holding a funeral for the party when the numbers say different story…120 million citizens(hopefully), voted in the last election and Romney lost by 3 million…Blacks voted for Obama with something like 97% of a 15 million voting population…normally the GOP gets 6% of their vote but because Obama was a historic black president they all supported him…that will not happen next time…especially with blacks being the highest unemployed group of all(ironic isnt it). The numbers say, that there is no need for a GOP funeral just patience and a better promise for the people…

  • Letmethink

    Rats–I am not as tough as you–I can’t take the snow–besides I can’t come up with the plug nickel to get a life and now they want me to find the money to “get a clue”. Spend, spend, spend–it never ends– Would love to have that smoker–sigh–

  • Doug Z

    Senators voted Wednesday to keep the White House closed to public tours, turning back a Republican-led effort to free up money to open the building back up after the sequestersnt on a 54-45 vote, with nearly every Republican voting to reopen the White House and with almost all Democrats voting to back Mr. Obama’s decision.

    Dems , libs want the people out of the peoples house

  • Doug Z

    I thought Obama was all about fair share but only the rich with a big check in hand can visit the W.H., what a hypocrite! Oh, all the little people who voted for Obama, is the Useful Idiot alarm ringing yet?

    Dems, we want the little people out vote 54-45 vote, with nearly every Republican voting to reopen the White House and with almost all Democrats voting to back Mr. Obama’s decision.

  • Doug Z

    Obama and the Dems, Libs do not want anybody to open the peoples house to the little people. Only the rich

    Donald Trump already offered to pick up the tab for keeping the PEOPLE’s (NOT Odumbo’s) House for the rest of the year for tours.

    So did O’Reilly and Fox News and the Easter Egg Hunt. obozo and Moochie the Wookie just love the “children” so much they like to make them cry about missing tours and Easter eggs.
