    Grasshopper is a posting program.

    where do you live this week

    Posted March 26, 2013 at 10:40 AM

    Chriscee–it’s too bad you didn’t go the U of Maryland

    Funny you have changed University since I showed your CSU was not a good Business school. You have said you live in Cal . Now you have moved.

    Please do not lie.

  • Chriscee

    I see the SOB is back…and too chicken to repsond to what I said to him over on Friday’s thread. Of course….he just continues to cut and paste his same old boring tired out talking points. No one wonder MSNBS is failing…they have people like USA8888 representing them…people are bored with democrats.

  • Doug Z

    C. MATTHEWS beats Al Sharpton

  • Letmethink

    CNN CEO says CNN is not a liberal station. Ha–go to Breitbart and read the response to the CEO’ claim.
    Morning Joe/Early Start Starting Point are racing to the bottom.

  • UpAndOver

    Oh No, MesSNBC has brought outthe big guns against THE OREILLY FACTOR…LOL…

  • Chriscee

    @ Doug Z

    When you work for the military….you go where they send you. USA8888 is merely jealous my husband has an awesome job. He worked on Radar Systems for the Subs, Carriers and F-18’s.

    I cannot help that USA8888 never graduated the 8th grade…but he did learn to cut and paste BS very well. Best thing I can do…is to IGNORE HIM.

    He can bash away….it’s what democrats do best…bash and run. Because they are CHICKENS.

  • Doug Z

    Maybe we need to limit the amount of teeth? a dog is allowed to have. Kelly should of been fined for not having control of the dog. If it wasn’t for who he is. he would have been fined. He walked away like nothing ever happen. That fat Feinstein would have put her fingers in the holes. Why do they need a pit bull. won’t a chawawa be just as good.

  • Letmethink

    @Chriscee I stopped reading the “SOB” after his first two posts but I do notice his posts as I scroll by. How can any one person post night and day constantly? Probably a group of Media Matters trolls taking turns posting the same nonsense.

  • Doug Z

    Instead of trying to work the dog’s jaw to release the baby sea lion, Kelly’s daughter and another woman made it worse by playing a tug of war. Then Kelly came? in and yanked hard. These people were responsible for the seal’s death. Then Mark Kelly just walked away and not checking on the baby sea lion. He just wanted to get away. It’s a hit and run.

  • Chriscee

    @Doug Z…I’d like to let loose a pit bull in the House of Representatives when democrats are giving their “very UN-caring” speeches. 3/4 of them wouldn’t know what to do. What a scene!!

  • Doug Z

    You have no? business telling others how to control a gun when you have not trained your adult children how to control a frickin’ dog! Hypocrite!

  • Doug Z

    Good thing it wasn’t a baby or small child. I? think Mark Kelly should be banned from owning dogs. Obviously he isn’t mature or responsible enough to own one? and we all know now that they are dangerous.

  • AppleStinx

    Piers Morgan at 287K/72K! Mondays are tough for everybody in primetime, but CNN should try a different name because the recent change to ‘Piers Morgan Live’ really isn’t providing the results they might have expected. :lol:

  • Letmethink

    Maybe Piers Morgan and Jim Carrey can start a program–Two Liberal Foreigners Who want to Tell Americans How Stupid They Are –think they would get more listeners?
    Sad but I liked the Jim Carrey movies. I can never watch them again without thinking about his despicable song and how he denigrated Charlton Heston who did more for civil rights that he has ever done.

  • AppleStinx

    Is Ed Schultz gone already? MSNBC must be relieved that this ‘Now with Alex Wagner-Prime’ isn’t what the 9pm will have as lead-in.

  • Ralph Hahn


  • ninja

    To get Sharptons numbers upNBC needs to hire a translater to understand what he’s saying
    Matthews needs some potent drugs.

    There was no help for Ed.

    Maddow needs a doctor. ( you can decide on witch one or two, ect. )

    Lawrence could use a exorcism.

  • Ralph Hahn

    OWWW! This has gotta hurt. Looks like MSNBC has joined the race with CNN to see who can get to the BOTTOM first. Some bigtime shows on each network have problems getting numbers about 99,000 in the Demo. Although it’s four months late, viewers are starting to see who Obama’s media lapdogs have been. Too late.

    BTW, this is about Cable News Ratings. Cutting and pasting articles about how you think the Republicans and Dems are doing, is meant for another place. (Trash). lol

  • Ralph Hahn

    @ussr666: NO ONE was to discuss ‘your’ political agenda, so just Forget Yourself.

  • Doug Z

    C. MATTHEWS beats Al Sharpton

    Matthew gets to keep his job now.
