    KUDOS– to Bill O’Reilly for calling out the hypocritical left wing on Gay Marriage…Suddenly people like Chuckie Schumer, Dick Durbin, Bill and Hillary Clinton and Obama himself…suddenly..have –for political purposes ONLY…decided gay marriage is just OK.

    They are all….like O’Reilly said…hypocrites.

  • Doug Z

    Posted March 29, 2013 at 10:27 AM

    Matthew–would you please tell me how cutting spending in a very fragile economy will increase jobs and grow the economy……I am waiting…..

    Cue the Jeperdy music

    You said Obama economy was doing great. Now that is not true,what he has done a bad job?

  • Chriscee

    KUDOS to Rick Perry….for deciding the State of Texas will PAY to keep Air Traffic Control Tower Open….Obama wanted them closed….because of HIS sequestration. I congratulate Rick Perry for showing up Obama.

    More states need to stand up against Obama!!

  • Chriscee

    Our left wing in America HATES our Military so much…..now a writer is calling for an END to Military Funerals.

    You just can’t get much for disrespectful to our Military than that.

  • Ratboy

    And WE have to pay for Planned Parenthood!! I think I want to throw up now!!!!!

    Planned Parenthood Official Argues for Right to Post-Birth Ab0rtion

    Florida legislators considering a bill to require ab0rtionists to provide medical care to an infant who survives an ab0rtion were shocked during a committee hearing this week when a Planned Parenthood official endorsed a right to post-birth ab0rtion.

    Alisa LaPolt Snow, the lobbyist representing the Florida Alliance of Planned Parenthood Affiliates, testified that her organization believes the decision to kill an infant who survives a failed ab0rtion should be left up to the woman seeking an ab0rtion and her ab0rtion doctor.

  • Chriscee

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch columnist Bill McClellan thinks the U.S. should put an end to military funeral honors. Both the federal government and Missouri’s state government are are broke, he explains in a column published Wednesday. Not to mention, “most veterans did nothing heroic” anyway.

    The left wing just cannot get anymore disrespectful to our Military. God help them.

  • Chriscee

    KUDOS to Jay Leno…please keep up the hits to NBC and their propaganda machine.

    Jay Leno’s Ratings Rise as He Taunts NBC

  • Chriscee

    Posted March 29, 2013 at 10:45 AM

    That is the absolute MOST DISGUSTING thing I’ve ever read or heard coming from the left wing.

    I thought the left wing in America was all about the CHILDREN…Save the children..Help the Children…blah blah blah….the left wing loves the children so much..they want to let them die. SAD!!!

  • Chriscee

    Dan Baum a left winger from New Jersey….said today that democrats have “gone over the edge” on control.

    Liberals use gun control to claim cultural superiority

    Google that story and read the article. He’s absolutely correct.

  • Jeff

    Mr DOOOOUG Z!!

    Add Michelle Bachman to list of Republican Reps under investigation.
    She has a few investigations underway!!!!’

    Tisk! Tisk! Tisk!


  • Jeff

    @KUDOS to Jay Leno…please keep up the hits to NBC and their propaganda machine.

    This is a rather stupid comment, from a rather stupid person….

    NBC News has nothing to do with Jay Leno’s contract. That’s like saying American Idol contestants that regularly bash Fox is attacking Fox News.

    Jay Leno has plenty to say about dumb Republicans and crazy Conservatives in every program. So pour the champagne over your head instead!!

  • Chriscee


    The Des Moines Register releases an inter-active map of that State of Iowa..that shows the security levels at every school in Iowa.

    Really? The left is becoming UN-HINGED in America.

    They have since taken the map down…but the article still remains.

    They have put every child at risk in Iowa.

    Again, I thought liberals were all about protecting the children. SMH!!

  • Chriscee

    Another democrat under investigation

    Rep. Rob Andrews (D., N.J.) had broken House rules by using campaign funds for personal travel.

  • AppleStinx

    Ratboy wrote: “Soledad O’Brien Bids Farewell To Starting Point With Ode To ‘Tough,’ ‘Honest’ Journalism.”

    Now that ‘unemployed’ is also in her blood, she becomes “uniquely” qualified to do something like “Unemployed in America” or some combination of her bloody uniquenesses in America.

  • Chriscee

    The bashing of Dr. Ben Carson continues. Why is the left wing so afraid of a neuro surgeon who saved the lives on conjoined twins?? The man is so intelligent left wingers are scared to death of his common sense. WHY?

    Now a group at John Hopkins is protesting his commencement address at the College.

    Johns Hopkins neurosurgeon Ben Carson told MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell Friday that he is prepared to refrain from speaking at the university’s School of Medicine commencement ceremony, after students and faculty petitioned over comments widely seen as anti-gay.

    Dr Carson is so much smarter than anyone on the left…and the left is deeply terrified….as they should be. Dr. Carson is true hero.

  • Ratboy

    As I read this I got really pissed that tomorrow I have to write a rather large check to the federal government knowing that most of that check will be wasted and the rest of it will go to things like this! I sure hope the first couple are for illegal aliens cuz they sure deserve the fair treatment!!!

    In shift, Medicare would pay for sex-change operations

    For the first time since 1981, when it dubbed sex-change operations “experimental,” Medicare has opened the door to covering transexual operations, adding to the growing list of operations that would be allowed under Obamacare.

    Acting on a new request, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services said it is starting a new analysis that could lift the spending ban for sex-change operations with a goal of making a decision two days after Christmas and on the eve of Obamacare kicking in Jan. 1

  • usa8888

    Hey–Rat–you could always try to overthrouw the government with your AR-15 and your lunatic friends…….don’t pay your taxes rat even though Obama has done a LOT for you……

  • Doug Z

    You are so uneducated. Please read what it is about.

    Posted March 29, 2013 at 10:55 AM

    Add Michelle Bachman to list of Republican Reps under investigation.
