    Just in case the Dung Beetle missed it!

    @ When will these uneducated right wingers ever learn that a government economy is NOT analogous to a person’s credit card


    to take out a credit card from the Bank of China

    “The problem is, is that the way Bush has done it over the last eight years is to take out a credit card from the Bank of China in the name of our children, driving up our national debt from $5 trillion dollars for the first 42 presidents — number 43 added $4 trillion dollars by his lonesome, so that we now have over $9 trillion dollars of debt that we are going to have to pay back — $30,000 for every man, woman and child,” Obama said on July 3, 2008, at a campaign event in Fargo, N.D.

    “That’s irresponsible. It’s unpatriotic,” said candidate Obama

    YOU CANT FIX STUPID!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Sicilian Papa

    Oh, by the way I said man made global warming was a hoax last year here. I was right but the corrupt, secular, left wing, so-called objective media will never report it. The scientists are dumbfounded by the data.

    All you lefties who said we on the right were idiots because we rejected science. No, we are streetwise and know a corrupt, secular, left wing, so-called objective media scam when we hear one.

    Global warming is a phony trumped up scam of the left and the corrupt media!!!!

  • Doug Z

    Rasmussen’s new poll found that only 9% of likely voters think it is very likely that the “federal government would actually secure the border and prevent illegal immigration” if Congress passes comprehensive immigration reform and legalizes 11 million illegal aliens.

  • Jeff

    Rasmussen…..ah! Put Mitt Romney ahead of President Obama in the polls. Had Mitt winning in swings states.

    Romney lost ALL swing states, fell 5million votes short in the popular vote and was slaughtered in the electoral vote.

    Rass is full of sh-t!

  • Ralph Hahn

    @Ratboy: Hey, buddy. The REAL rats waited until Page 3 to chime in. Now, they’re all over the last two pages. Our friend, who calls himself usa but libdems HATE our country, had “written” something on page 3, that I saw word for fricken word somewhere else on the ‘net.

    Losers are always desperate. Figures don’t lie, but liars figure. O’ Reilly’s audience is how old? PROVE IT. Don’t just say the ad agencies have the figures. Produce the figures! I’m calling YOU out now.

  • Ratboy

    Hey dare Ralphie Boy!
    Did you notice that when Jeffie shows up, the Dung Beetle aint far behind?

  • usa8888

    This just in: I thought the Rat may have gone to college but it’s doubtful the guy went to high school…and obviously , he knows nothing about eocnomics. Tell me how you can grow the economy and jobs by cutting spending in a fragile economy. Rat–I can get you into a good high school if youcan pass the entrance exam….

  • Ratboy

    See what I mean Ralphie?

  • usa8888

    This just in: the Nikkei stock market is up wildly in Tokyo tomorrow morning due to the BOJ monetary measures..meanwhile the the UK and Europe are in the tank…..

  • usa8888

    Rasmussen’s polling methodology is methodolocically flawed but these uneducated right wingers wouldn’t know –they haven’t even had algebra….

  • usa8888

    I will bet Robme’s $100000 that Rat can’t pass a high school entrance exam….

  • usa8888

    RAlphie–don’t know if you have any experience with ad agenices but if you have, you know that Fox Fake News’ aduience is VERY old….

  • usa8888

    Can you imagine a right wing ignoramus running this country… we can’t…..

  • usa8888

    I will bet you the $10 million dollar limit on my visa card that Rat can’t pass a high school entrance exam…..

  • usa8888

    And I know Chriscee, Ralphie, Bs, Doug, and ibsles can’t….

  • Ratboy

    Dung beetle, see first post on this page

  • usa8888

    Oh, I forgot sic papa–he can make a pizza but that’s about it…

  • usa8888

    This just in: Colorado to pass two more gun control bills and Chriscee is still adhering to the absurd NRA extrmist leaders’ (two bozos) policies when 90% of the American public are for Obama’s gun policies…..

  • usa8888

    Rat–when are you available to take the entrance exam and expose your deficiencies????

  • usa8888

    Obama has to talk down to the ignorant, uneducated right so they understand….
