    @Chriscee: They should highlight in “pink” instead of blue. I’ll refrain from explaining why. This is Easter week.

  • Matthew

    It’s so awesome when you can highlight in blue….you want a cookie??

    No, it just makes it a little cleaner when you’re trying to respond to someone else’s posts. If you’d like to do it, its blockquote “quoted text here” /blockquote, with angle brackets around it.

  • Chriscee

    lol @ Ralph

    Hilarious…..Jesus died on the cross for all of our sins. Even democrats sins. Jesus didn’t discriminate against anyone.

  • Chriscee

    More liberal movement failure!

    Libs hardest hit: People set up tents to wait for Chick-fil-A grand openings in NJ, Calif. and Utah

    Chick Fil A – you ROCK!!

  • Matthew

    Dang, I have no idea what I’m saying that’s setting off the filter.

    I call out a poster for being petty as, by their own admission, they take joy in being an Internet troll. In return, I get false accusations about my personal life, including my work, my education, my living conditions, my income, and then Ralph ups the ante and decides to accuse me of being homosexual – yet I’m the mean one :?: Alrighty then! Good night.

  • Chriscee

    Another liberal failure….

    People wonder why companies are reducing workers hours to less than 30 per week. The employers CANNOT afford OBAMACARE….

    Perhaps the workers should remember…they voted for Obama….so they voted to work less and get less benefits. ObamaSCARE is cause of LESS WORKING HOURS.

    Perhaps these individuals that are NOT happy with their employers decision..should take it up with Obama. He created this diaster of ObamaSCARE.

    He can live with it.

    How times have changed: The mess America was in because of Bush’s Wars, Tax cuts, and Stock Market crash and where America is now thanks to Obama.

    @Chriscee “Democrats: Fought the abolition of slavery, Opposed the Civil War
    Fought Reconstruction, Fought against women’s rights, etc.”

    Those were CONSERVATIVES you knucklehead! Don’t you know your history?

    Let me help you out a little, rookie:

    Prior to the formation of the Conservative coalition, which helped realign the Democratic and Republican party ideologies in the mid-1960s, the Republican party historically advocated classical Liberalism and Progressivism. Whereas, the Democratic Party advocated classical Conservatism. Lincoln himself was very much a Liberal and Progressive President who was hated by the Conservatives. Especially by your Southern Civil War heroes.

    The civil rights act was the major turning point. This is the period when the Parties basically switched sides…names. The Democratic Party would now become the Liberal Party and the Republican Party would now become the Conservative Party. Party names may change throughout our history. However, the ideolofy behing a Conservative and a Liberal remains the same….party name is completely irrelevant.

    Liberal –
    1. Not limited to or by established, traditional, orthodox, or authoritarian attitudes, views, or dogmas; free from bigotry.
    2. Favoring proposals for reform, open to new ideas for progress, and tolerant of the ideas and behavior of others; broad-minded..

    Conservative –
    1. Favoring traditional views and values; tending to oppose change.
    2. Traditional or restrained in style.

    In other words, you would’ve backed the Democratic Party in those days being that you are a Conservative and I would’ve backed the Republican Party being that I am a Liberal. Get it?! Or was that too much info for you? LOL

  • Chriscee

    @Chriscee “Democrats: Fought the abolition of slavery, Opposed the Civil War
    Fought Reconstruction, Fought against women’s rights, etc.”

    Those were CONSERVATIVES you knucklehead! Don’t you know your history?


  • Mark2


    Now keeping that in mind:

    Conservatives alway seem to be on the wrong side of history. Notice I said CONSERVATIVES and did not mention anything about party names being that ideology trumps names of parties have changed throughout our history.

    1) Conservatives opposed the American Revolution

    2) Conservatives opposed freeing the slaves

    3) Conservatives opposed women’s suffrage

    4) Conservatives opposed minimum wage and child labor laws, the 8-hour work day, weekends, sick leave… etc.

    5) Conservatives opposed humane treatment of animals

    6) Conservatives opposed the Social Security Act

    7) Conservatives oppose Clean Air and Water Act

    8) Conservatives opposed the Civil Right’s Act

    9) Conservatives opposed Medicare

    10) Conservatives oppose Equal Protection Under the Law

    And I won’t even bring up that fact that Conservatives opposed the GI Bill, the First Responder’s Bill, the Veteran’s Jobs Bill, Universal Healthcare for ALL Americans, allowing Gays to serve our Country openly, and equal pay for Women…oops, I guess I just did.

  • Chriscee

    Per the BLS Website….there were only 2 months we lost over 700,000 jobs

    Average Unemployment under GW Bush 5.4%
    Average Unemployment under Obama 9%

    1/17/2009 763,000 jobs lost under Obama
    7/11/2009 677,000 jobs lost under Obama

    The ONLY reason unemployment numbers have come down is because NO ONE is working….thanks to OBAMA.

    Under GW Bush….everyone was employed.

    Obama…the chief of JOBS KILLING.

  • Chriscee

    Those are all things DEMOCRATS were opposed to…

    by the way…it took a REPUBLICAN president…to FREE THE SLAVES….

  • Chriscee

    Democrats were opposed to the CIVIL RIGHTS ACTS OF 1964

    Robert Kennedy Jr. feared MLK so much…he – then attorney general issued wiretaps on MLK.

  • Chriscee

    Conservatives are NOT opposed to Medicare…..we want to REFORM it..so it’s there forever…

    Unlike democrats…who robbed Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid…so Clinton could say he had a surplus….which he didn’t…if there was ever a surplus..the debt would go down….AND ..under Clinton..the Debt was never reduced.

  • Mark2


    It’s like talking to a wall when it comes to trying to educate ignorant people like you. Seriously, go back to college and take some history classes and learn about our American History.

    By the way, the next time you’re in the South, try telling those Sotherners with deep rooted Civil War History connections that their heroes and Kin were Liberals because they fell under the Democratic Party name…LMAO

    Here’s digital $1…now, go buy yourelf a clue.

  • usa8888

    Chriscee–your right wing philosophy is rejected by the majority of Americans and right wingism is in its death throes. Would you and rat turn out the lights???

  • Chriscee

    Stop posting crap from think progress website..you know as well as I do..republicans aren’t against any of those things. Just the usual talking points from liberals. That’s why liberals have a bad name.

  • Mark2

    @Chriscee “it took a REPUBLICAN president…to FREE THE SLAVES….”

    Did you not hear anything I said you Knucklehead?!

    Republicans were Liberals. Lincoln was a Liberal and hated by the Conservatives.

    Let me ask you a simple question? What side would you have fought with during that time? The North (Liberals) or the South (Conservatives)?

    I rest my case…rookie!

  • Chriscee

    Only people here who need a clue….Mark2, Jeff and USA..you all would love to re-write history..but it’s NOT working….now here’s a quarter..go get a cookie….

  • Sicilian Papa

    National Debt when O. took office 10.6 trillion

    National Debt 4+ years later nearly 17 trillion

    Ouch that’s gotta hurt!

    Bankrupting the nation. When does the bank account tax start!
