    That was addressed to Mark…not Doug. I was commenting on his remark to Doug. Again….WOUNDED WARRIOR PROJECT benefits greatly from all the sales of Bill O’Reilly’s books.

    At least someone cares enough to donate to them….we know liberals hate the military so much…they have to do what the Amazing Race did 2 weeks ago….HOW SAD!!

    Thank you to Bob Beckel for calling out CBS….and demanding an apology….an apology that came about a week to late.

  • Matthew

    What a nasty, spiteful individual you are. Sad.

  • Doug Z

    what a 300 year window.

    Posted March 25, 2013 at 3:20 PM

    @Doug Z

    If I had to pick the fall of Rome it would be sometime between 200-500AD. The Roman Empire still was strong those early modern centuries(0-200AD) but it just fizzled out

    300 year window, I am sure you have to be right. I was talking Republic- Rome. Do you know when and what that was. I love Rome. It is a window to today.

  • d.d.

    Back to the last room………

    I am guessing Clinton’s kid, Reagan’s Kids, etc all took vacation while their Daddy was in office, so it seems like faux outrage for the sake of finding something to be outraged over.

    You are often quite reasonable , but, I’m with the others here . We’ve had the worst recession & the longest on record. Many people are still struggling , &, the payroll tax cut has hurt them more. First , the optics looks bad . You have Biden & crew spending a million dollars between a night in Paris & a night in London . Security is important , but, the lavishness in those two night stays, rubs our nose in it.

    It’s the excessiveness of these First Family vacations that every day people are noticing. They don’t appear seemly to many during the difficult times everyday Americans continue to feel.

    The sequestration cut that affected the White House ( Our House) backfired . I believe it contributed to Obama’s decreasing poll scores . Today’s RCP of Obama’s job approval is 48% approve ; 47.4% disapprove.

    “Shared sacrifice” remember those words spoken by Obama ?

    Yoo Hoo!

    This is for you , H.B.

    Pretty dramatic pictures !

  • Mark

    @Doug Z

    I am just saying Rome had a good 200-250 years after the Republic became an Empire, then it slowly started to regress over the next 300

  • Doug Z

    Posted March 25, 2013 at 3:23 PM

    What a nasty, spiteful individual you are. Sad.

    thank you I resemble that.

  • Chriscee

    lol @ Doug….dunno who Matthew was talking to…maybe himself???

  • Doug Z

    I love Romain history the most.

    Did it not die about 1250 AD, depends how you look at it.

    Fun ya

  • Matthew

    You, Chris, talking to you. Just pages and pages of partisan bile from you. You seem a very bitter, sad individual. Good luck with that.

  • Mark


    There was that whole Dark ages period before 1250AD(although I guess technically it lasted till about 1500). It’s just so sad how a culture so technically advanced for it’s time could regress to the point they do nothing history worthy for close to 1000 years(between 500AD and 1500AD)

  • Chriscee

    sorry Matthew that you cannot handle the truth. The truth is liberals are afraid of the actual truth.

    when you talk about bile..you better remember to check your own backyard first. Because it’s covered with your crap you spewed.

    Better also check USA8888, Jeff and Mark.

    Maybe you better clean up your own yard before you complain about others.


    Again..if you don’t like what I type….do me and yourself a HUGE FAVOR….don’t read it…

    Thanks again.

  • Doug Z

    What race was Queen Victoria and what is her last name.

    Fun history

    She was 3/4 German and her husband was all German.

  • Mark

    Wasn’t it Saxe-Colburg Gotha? And I would assume she white

  • Doug Z


    Fun times a lot happens between 500AD and 1500AD

    If we studied it we would know the Russians are Vikings and on and on.

    Confusing as in “a second mouse button” to Mac users? :grin: Hardly. ‘Low IQ’ and ‘old age’ in the same sentence isn’t a bad thing when one defines IQ as {[Intellectual Age/Biological Age]*100}: the older you are, the lower IQ you would want to have. If I live to be 100, I’ll want to have an IQ of 20 at that time. :lol:

  • Doug Z


    What does the word slave mean, Mark

  • Doug Z

    Wasn’t it Saxe-Colburg Gotha? And I would assume she white

    My point she was German. Most English do not know this.

  • Mark

    yeah but the Roman Empire basically was non existent on anything important other then having tons of Crusades. The Middle East actually became the hub of scientific advancements during this period.

  • Matthew

    Better also check USA8888, Jeff and Mark.

    Why? Why is what they type my responsibility?

    when you talk about bile..you better remember to check your own backyard first.

    Sure, I’m mean to certain posters here.

    Maybe you better clean up your own yard before you complain about others.

    Not a complaint, just a commentary. Your posts are practically dripping with bitter resentment, while you seem to simultaneously take vicarious pride in the accomplishments of those with whom you share the most nebulous of links (man agrees with me on politics, man is financially successful, his success validates my world view, helps me briefly forget my own insecurity).

    Also, every jerk on the face of the Earth hides behind the “ugh, other people just can’t handle the truth!” defense when called out on being a jerk; it is, however, perfectly possible to be honest without the bile.

    Not asking you to change, just wishing you good luck with your unhealthy lifestyle choice.

  • Ratboy

    So 35 yep count em 35 dems in the house voted AGAINST the senate budget!??

    Whaaaaa?? What happened loons? Oh yea most of them are up for re-election in 2014! They better vote for what the people want NOT what Obama wants if they want to keep their job! :shock: :lol:
