    Awww @ USA..truth about liberal insanity hits home with you. Smacks you between the eyes.

  • Ratboy

    Yea Mikey!!!
    Mickey–the answer to your question should be obvious to you…..

    Just like the Dung’s response to the equation last week, “oh that is tooo easy to waste time on”

    It seems that when you have that much knowledge you don’t have to give any additional resonse

  • Doug Z

    The insanity is ours for even replying. But , he makes it so easy for the stupid things he says.

    Posted April 9, 2013 at 11:34 AM

    Definition of liberal insanity– USA8888 who keeps repeating the same insane BS every day.

  • usa8888

    Mickey–Regarding Obama’s intelligence, I can PROVE Green’s Theorem and Stokes’ Theorem to you mathematically, but I can’t PROVE Obama’s intelligence level to you mathematically…all you have do is exercise a little common sense….and it will be obvious….

  • Chriscee

    @Doug…he is a very easy target…as are all liberals.

  • usa8888

    Chriscee- we have your new home ready in Mississippi…even some old Confederate flags for you…..are you ready?

  • usa8888

    Chriscee–you must feel awfully out of place in Colorado–I hear it IS a BEAUTIFUL state….and very progressive.

  • Hillbilly

    Women are so superficial. It’s not like men would be more attracted to bigger bo0bs. :grin:


    “I like small p*nises,” said no women interviewed for an actually scientific study released Monday by the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, or PNAS. Yes, PNAS is a funny sounding acronym, and, yes, PNAS has found that size does matter — and that women prefer “showers” to “growers.”

    “As past studies have shown, women prefer tall men with broad shoulders and narrow hips, like an Olympic swimmer. But when [Dr. Brian] Mautz controlled for those variables, it turned out that p*nis size (overall length and girth) was about as important as stature,” reports the team over at N*C News.

  • Hillbilly

    Fox News Digital won a Shorty Award last night for Best Integration of Social Media with Live Television for the 2012 Election Night. Co-anchored by FNC’s Bret Baier and Megyn Kelly, the evening garnered over 12 million viewers according to Nielsen data.

    I like your bull better.


    I’m preparing for my move to Humbolt County, in California. :cool:



    rhode island university campus police had to respond to a reported gunman on campus with pepper spray and batons they arent allowed to carry guns took over 20 minutes for state police to arrive

  • Dave Sky

    Common all us right-wingers, it’s time to confess:

    • The GOP has never accomplished anything. Their entire reason for existence is obstruction, and they only want to destroy our country.

    • My favorite speaker at the Conservative Comedy Convention was Lian Ryan, followed closely by our token black person, Dr. Ben “Uncle Tom” Carson.

    • I think the entire tax burden should fall on the shoulders of the lower-middle class, and the rich should pay nothing.

    • I think all Americans should be free to buy whatever weapon they want, including military-grade, without any restrictions or background checks whatsoever. Hopefully this will allow us to kill more children, en masse.

    • I think women’s birth control should be banned, and they should make less money than men in the workplace.

    • I want to either suppress or eliminate the ability for blacks and Hispanics to vote. Oh, and women too. While we’re at it, I wouldn’t mind reinstating Jim Crow laws, for starters.

    • There has never been an educated Republican, including myself and others on this site, and we know absolutely nothing about Economics. Our goal is to destroy the economy for all time.

    • I only want our country to engage in war because I want our soldiers killed, and to plunge our country into massive debt.

    • I want all entitlement programs eliminated across the board, including Social Security and Medicare, because I want old people to die and poor people to starve to death.

    • The only reason I, or anyone else on the right, am critical of President Obama is because he is black.

    • The GOP will never win another election. They will cease to exist soon. The one and only party, Democratic, will soon control every branch of the government, as it should be for the benefit of all Americans.

    • President Obama has been a tremendous success at everything he’s done, and will go down as the best President in the history of our nation.

    Am I missing anything?

  • Dave Sky

    He’s been repeating that Green’s Theorem comment for months now. He thinks it makes him sound smart.

    When someone actually asked him to solve an equation…

    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 =?

    …his response was:

    “this is so simple I don’t waste my time on it…”

    HAHAHAHAHAHA!!! The kid is a clown. Of course now he’s going to Google something else to make himself sound smart.

  • Ratboy

    @ Am I missing anything

    Okay Okay,…….I really do like Michelle’s new haircut and Obama is right………………..GREEN salsa!

  • Dave Sky

    *C’mon, not common. Darn auto-correct.

  • Ratboy

    @ HAHAHAHAHAHA!!! The kid is a clown. Of course now he’s going to Google something else to make himself sound smart.

    But when he does………………………………..it doesn’t!! :shock: :lol:

    usa8888:: Can you please give us all your educational background,degrees if any, type of institution you went to, and type of job ,if any, you hold down…just trying to get some sort of profile on someone like yourself…

  • Mark2

    @Chriscee “Obama at 49% approval and SINKING”

    That CNN Poll shows otherwise

    Obama Approval rises to 51% from 47%

  • Dave Sky

    I’m sorry, Jeff doesn’t like it when we gang up on poor little Lian8888. Awwwww….

  • usa8888

    Dave–you wouldn’t know when to use the triple integral of the divergence of the vector field and when to use the double integral of the vector field dotted with the differential s……now would you?
