    The Dems are not waving the holier than thou, or my marriage way or the highway banner these days.


    That’s because they can’t run on their record….heck, Obama is still blaming Bush for every one of HIS OWN decisions…

    So ratboy, the Fox News loving koolaid drinker attacks MSNBC because they hire another Democrat guy. Then completely ignores that FN has Mike Huckabee, ignores my comment about it and everything then comes back with another jab. Why is this guy even still being conversed with?

    You obviously weren’t watching the 2008 republican primary…it was so obvious that Huckabee was running for a tv job, not the presidency. It was obvious from the beginning it was simply an extended vacation…he knew within the first couple of primary states that he didn’t have a chance in haides of getting the nomination, let alone get elected… why do you think he was playing with bands, going bowling…all these things that had nothing to do with the election…

  • Stan T.

    I still laugh when the left keep insulting Fox News…yet Fox News is in Canada, and MSNBC isn’t, because they can’t get passed the ban on false and misleading news programming…Considering the liberal lean of Canada, I’m guessing Fox News has to be pretty fair and balanced, or the Canadians would have easily found a way to get rid of them….

  • Hillbilly

    The Five number 1 again. :)

    Bill O’s 11pm numbers still whipping CNN & MSNBC’s prime time numbers.

    I understood, from his recent posts, that he and Floyd, Mayberry’s Barber, dislocated a wimp’s shoulder for razzing, and they’re coming after you. The tractor gang known as “Bony Moronie’s Horny Hoarding & Marauding Hyenas”, who hasn’t yet met a corn field they didn’t enjoy turning into ethanol MOONSHINE, is coming to get you. :cool:


  • Hillbilly

    d.d. – I worked ortho. for 8 years. Rotor. cuff surgery is one of the most painful because of the full range of motion a shoulder has. Physical therapy is absolutely necessary & it will be P.(ain) & T.(orture)


    Thanks for the info. I might cut him some slack now…NOT!!! :)


  • TheBoss1

    @Stan T … I laugh at the hypocrisy of you and your brethren. You go after “Willy Clinton” yet you give a pass at Mark Sanford. He who lives in glass houses should not throw stones.

  • TheBoss1

    @Mark2 … You wrote, “In case you guys missed it, O’Reilly went off on Laura Ingraham tonight about his “Bible Thumpers” comment that pissed off Rush Limbaugh, Mark Levin, etc. They already posted the clip on the Mediaite website.”

    Funny how I posted a couple of Youtube clips about the Fair and (mentally) [un]balanced Fox conservative news host totally losing it, and those posts have mysteriously disappeared.

    So, I wonder if the policy of deleting links to Youtube and to other videos is CONSISTENLY applied across the board? Or, if only unflattering videos of CONSERVATIVES are deleted?

  • d.d.

    Hi, Boss.

    I think you said that you play golf. Have you seen the new You Tube of ” Bubba Watson drive his new hovercraft golf cart ?”

    I caught your happy hour post, but, not until the next day.

  • TheBoss1

    @d.d. … no, I haven’t seen it. But, I’ll check it out right now. Thanks.

    (I paid pretty dearly for that happy hour indiscretion! Felt bad for days! I’m not as young as I use to be. Haha).

    Hope all is well with you. Gonna check out that video now…

  • d.d.


    Short chat but nice.

    I’m heading out the door

  • TheBoss1

    @d.d. … WOW! The video has been up for only 22 hours and it has well over 300,000 views. You’ve got to be kidding me.

    I’m an avid golfer, but I don’t know what to think of that. I honor and respect the time-honored traditions of the sport, so I really don’t know what to think.

    @The state of Michigan today received its first credit rating upgrade since Gov. Rick Snyder took office, with Fitch Ratings Ltd. lifting the state’s general obligation bond debt to AA from AA-

    Such BS!!

    He can thank President Obama and the Auto industry

    So if Obama gets the credit for Michigan does he take the blame for California too???

  • Ratboy

    And by the way Jeffie, do you have any idea of what % of the Michigan economy is Auto related? It is actually very small overall!

  • Ratboy

    Goood Morning
    Sunny but still cold. Now it does not look like we will get out of the 50’s this weekend as they were teasing ups with 60 degrees on Sat or Sunday.

    Leno: AP Replaces ‘Illegal Immigrant’ With ‘Undocumented Democrat’

    The Associated Press announced Tuesday that it will no longer use the term “illegal immigrant.”

    On NBC’s Tonight Show, host Jay Leno said, “They will now use the phrase ‘undocumented Democrat’”

  • Coffee Steve

    Good Morning EVERYONE!

    Howdy Boss Dude, Morning d.d. & Rats

    Thanks to d.d. on that post about the Aussies dumping the dollar (I get more real news from you than the net) I honestly don’t have time to read or watch ANY TV news anymore.

    Ratboy – Saturday I sat with my eyes glazed over as my accountant was explaining the birds & the bees. :shock:

    My Mom used to tell me, “Watch out Steven, The Bee’s sting the birds and it hurts like Hell” :mrgreen:

    Man those Bass Trackers have got WAY TOO Expensive.. So we bought a large Navy raft with a small motor LOL

  • Ratboy

    Hey Jeffie………….

    Despite Popular Thinking, Michigan Economy
    Is Not Determined By Automotive Industry

    Lansing Mayor Virg Bernero says his staff is marketing the city as an “automotive center.”

    MLive Political Columnist Rick Haglund wrote: “… Michigan still is a state that largely rises and falls on vagaries of the century-old auto industry, regardless of actions by Lansing policymakers.”

    Yet economic analysts say that thinking is outdated and, in some ways, inaccurate.

    Auto and auto parts manufacturing jobs account for 3 percent of the total jobs in Michigan and Michigan’s jobs recovery has been built outside the automobile industry.

    Check out the Newport Vessels. This is the boat that my nephew got the dealership for and I am selling for him in Michigan. It is an inflatable boat with a solid floor that goes from the box to the water in 20 minutes and can take up to a 20 hp motor (which by the way makes it waaaaaay too fast!)and you can get one for under $1000.
    Very stable, seats, hard floor, storage, cover. They are really great for the money and tough too!
