    Marine Official Accuses Harry Reid Of Sequester-Politics Posturing ‘On Backs Of Dead Marines’

    Time for Dirty Harry Reid to APOLOGIZE for his UGLY comments.

  • Chriscee

    Just have to love the democrats.

    The party that was against the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

    The party that wiretapped Martin Luther King.

    The party of the KKK.

    The party that so seemingly hate the rich yet the 7 of the top 10 richest people in congress are democrats.

    The party that has a symbol of a donkey. That says it all about democrats.

    The party that claims they are for the children…but believe in the aborting them.

    The party that loves to keep poor people…poor. Rathering than helping them go back to school and get a better education so they could find jobs.

    And then the party of the clueless Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi. What more can be said.

  • Jeff


    Yes, there are extremist on both sides on that specific topic.

  • Jeff

    @The party that loves to keep poor people…poor. Rathering than helping them go back to school and get a better education so they could find jobs

    You would call the an entitlement or welfare program and not want to pay for it…..did ya forget?

    Killing a child would be murder ya knucklehead……terminating a fertilized egg is legal in America, not everyone shares your extreme view. Focus on unwanted pregnancy, before you try to force your extreme views on others

    The rest is not worth commenting on……too dumb!!

  • Cathy

    The suburban stickers didn’t bother me. I thought, how dumb can someone be to put a Climate Change sticker on a car that leaves one of the biggest carbon footprints.

    Ratboy, HELLO……

  • usa8888

    Hey, Rat–top of the evening to you, no seriously…..

  • usa8888

    Chriscee–it’s quotes like yours above that make the GOP lose credibility….you must be at least partially truthful or you will being to sound like Lian Ryan….and nobody but the right wing will believe you ….

  • Cathy

    USA8888 the name Lian to pronounce “Lee an” Change you I to a Y and it would be a better plan on words.

  • Jeff

    @ I thought, how dumb can someone be to put a Climate Change sticker on a car that leaves one of the biggest carbon footprints…….


    Maybe she transports lots of passengers,which would shoot down your assumption that she is a hypocrite for having a bumper sticker on her car supporting the environment. Maybe her Prius was at home in the garage.

    Ya never know!!

  • usa8888

    This just in: Boehner and Lian Ryan said yesterday the US debt was NOT an immeidiate problem….did Fox Fake News forget what they said????

  • ninja

    Fake news, you must be referring to msnbs 15% news coverage.

  • Chriscee


    NOTHING I said is UNTRUE. Use Google and find out. I’d give you links..but Bill doesn’t allow that anymore.

    Check them out….What part of the above is NOT true???

  • usa8888

    Chriscee- EVERYTHNG you said is not only untrue, but ABSURD. That’s why the right wing has become irrelevant and why they lose elections and why they will Not win another presidential election until they change……
    …”dems supporting the KKK…ABSURD……

  • usa8888

    This just in: Color gov signs extensive gun control legislation, one of the toughest in the nation…while the gun lobby kooks threatens revenge…that’s why these gun kooks can not win elections…….

  • usa8888

    Fox Fake News forgot Boehner and Lian Ryan said yesterday the debt was NOT an immediate problem……Fox Fake News has a short memory….

    Of course, anyone with half a brain knows the debt is NOT an immediate problem…

  • DB

    Jeffie, you couldn’t go six minutes without a vile post much less six months. You are such a wuss–self control is not your thing I guess.

  • mikey o

    @Van dont forget Johnson 50 year war on poverty. What do the numbers say Mark2 are we winning ??? If we haven’t made a dent on the war on poverty maybe we should make a change instead of spending more $$$$$ on the same losing policies.

  • Chriscee

    What part of what I said is NOT true? It’s not absurd. They are true facts. I know that’s hard for you to understand. THE TRUTH will set you free.

  • Chriscee

    FOX POLL – They polled more Democrats than Republicans….and


  • Martine

    I watch Fox News now too. I pretty much used to call them Faux news back in the day. But now I am a bit tired of the liberal news media pretending like we have a recovery and basically licking Obamas behind. So No kidding more people watch Fox News. At least they dare to question the big brother. The other news shows are just too afraid of being called racist to question anything the president does.
