    Rat–are you ready for the exam–the first question is: name the accomplishments of the far right kooks during Obama’s term…..

  • usa8888

    Where have all the right wingers gone—to watch Lawrence Welk,,,,,I know

  • Wayne

    There must be some pretty stinkin’ deep pocket progressives keeping the shiddy MSNBS alive.

    It can’t possibly make any money. Don’t even understand any business/company that would pay for ads in the first place.

    Chrissy Hayes gets just over the record attendance of one college football game in the key demo? For the whole country? Pathetic.

    Rat–are you ready for the exam–the first question is: name the accomplishments of the far right kooks during Obama’s term…..

    Let me answer that: They still pay their bills with their own money…..

  • Ralph Hahn

    @Ratboy: >>> See what I mean Ralphie? <<<

    Yes. It's really sad when people like that spend a lifetime making up bull$#it to the point when THEY begin to believe it. His obsession of who went to what college means that he's enamored with the 'campus mentality' where one learns political science from some professor whose only experience is that HE/SHE learned it from another professor. Meanwhile, they can't survive out of the campus lifestyle and be practical. His god is Obama. Right or wrong, weak or strong. These people lost all intelligence when they spend their time playing videogames.

    NOTHING Obama promised before his first term was delivered by him. Both Obama and Biden are so far removed from reality, they keep saying the same crap and the brainless keep eating it up as if it were the last box of Twinkies on Earth.

    To sum up, "usa8888," is now known by me, officially, as "The Unpatriot." While he talks as though he knows the world of collegiate education, he sure as hell didn't retain anything worth retaining. What do 'I' know about ad agencies? Well, I've watched five seasons of "Mad Men." lol But, if you're going to come out and quote ratings and demographic studies, put up or shut the front door.

  • Ralph Hahn

    Too bad that we’re not all equiped with cams to be able to debate all of these left-wing nuts. We would destroy them. The only one I’d be concerned with going head-to-head is TheBoss1. BTW, what happened to the other guy on the left side who used to post here for whom I gained respect along with The Boss? I forgot his handle.

  • UpAndOver

    OK usa8888 we will watch for the answer…LOL….

    x 2 over a 2 + y 2 over b 2 + z 2 over c 2 =1

    x 2 over a 4 + y 2 over b 4 + z 2 over c 4 =?

  • usa8888

    This just in: the right wing kooks realize they can not win unless they suppress the vote….so in North Carolina they are trying to tax parents of college kids in order to prevent them from voting…and they are closing voting center and restricting voting days…all in an attempt to push their absurd rightwing philosophy which no educated person would adopt,,except the lowly educated types on this blog….

  • usa8888

    up and over–this is so simple I don’t waste my time on it…you tell me how Green’s theorem figures into Stoke’s Theorem…….
    Up and over–I hope you don’t fly planes……I’d be scared…

  • Ralph Hahn

    The Unpatriot should be concerned with improving his image by providing the ad agency demo stats that he quotes but will not post as proof instead of what’s going on in North Carolina.

  • Dave Sky


    You wrote: “Dave–this is a site with mostly right wing kooks and I couldn’t care less if they change or not. Right wingers can remain ignorant and backward thinking, I don’t care–the important think is that these right wing kooks have zero influence anymore…”

    So, I’ll ask you again: Why are you wasting your time? You say you don’t care, nor expect, to influence anyone, but you sure spend a LOT of time on here posting the same stuff over and over. You have no objective. No one here likes you, or listens to a word you say. Why do you waste your life doing this? Your actions do not correspond with your explanation.

    Isn’t there something a young kid like yourself could be doing with his life other than this? When I was your age, I was going out to clubs or parties and trying to meet chicks. Don’t waste your youth with such futility that you display here.

    At the very least, can’t you spend your time and efforts on a site with like-minded people where you can share ideas, instead of making Liberals look bad like you do here?

  • Judy

    Just an observation from someone who has never been on this site before but out of sheer boredom is browsing ratings for my favorite weekly network and cable shows. First observation is this site is overwhelmingly extreme right conservative. Second observation….the majority of posters don’t seem intelligent or well-informed, mainly relying on name calling to make their point. These posters also seem to think that out of 380+ million people in the USA, 2.5 million (and lower) means anything in the national political conversation….right or left. I think most of you need to get out more! Just an observation….

  • usa8888

    up and over–tell me what is the Convolution Theorem and how it is used to solve differential equations……

  • Dave Sky

    Just a reminder for anyone who wants to see usa8888…

    Google his name (small letters, no spaces), click on images, and you will see him wearing a blue tshirt on justintv. com. There’s also a picture with sunglasses, and you can watch a video of him.

    It is him. He’ll try to deny it, but it is. NOTE: he uses small letters for “usa” instead of the usual “USA”.

  • usa8888

    I’ve got to get ready for my 4th grade class tomorrow. over and out… but Rat, please list…..

    Could you be referring to MattFitz? MattFitz always posted with such eloquence. :cool:
