    How many right wing kooks want to maintain tax subsidies for billionaire yacht and private jet owners????

  • dana

    For those naive enough that believe that an additional tax hike on cigarettes will put an end to smoking look at history…Cigarette taxes are punitive right now, especially in ny and what happened? Black market cigarettes rampant…cigarette purchasing down 60%, but cigarette manufacturing up and the states are losing a ton of revenue..Obama raises taxes enough on the rich….the money goes off shore…BUT IT SOUNDS GOOD THE MASSES!!

  • usa8888

    Chief NRA CLOWN La Pierre wants to eliminate gun checks for criminals and lunatics…probably bacause he doesn’t want to have himself checked in the latter category…

    Surprise! CNN Cancels “The Point” After Just One Week

    The initial ratings were awful, and as the week wore on they didn’t get any better, forcing the network to make good on its promise to cancel the show if it failed to attract enough viewers.

    Perhaps part of the reason the show failed was that the hosts spent more time weighing in on things like lizard people ruling the world, and vegetarians who eat bacon, than real news.

    It’s pretty sad when a repeat of a program far outdraws a new live show. But it also shows how badly Zucker and his team misjudged the market for this type of program and just how hard it will be to turn around the one-time cable news leader

    I drove to San Francisco this morning to check on them, but alas, couldn’t find anyone. Much to my surprise, though, there were no toll collectors at the entrance of the Golden Gate Bridge, so going into the city was free today. Imagine (liberal logic here): I could have looped over the bridge a dozen times and saved 72 bucks! :grin:

  • Ralph Hahn

    @AppleStinx: I remember when I was in S.F. ten years ago. As we were leaving the city after our 3 days & 2 night visit to drive down the PCH, I drove North just to say that I crossed The Golden Gate Bridge. lol. I guess westerners get the same tingle up their legs when theuy first cross the Lincoln Tunnel. :)

  • Freyja

    Just ignore usa8888 he gets his talking points from the WH or MSNBC/CNN news. You can’t take him seriously.. ;)

  • Dave Sky

    You know, I used to find a certain poster on here annoying. Even a little amusing at times. But lately it’s become apparent that he’s reached a level of psychosis that could be dangerous. I’m not joking. We used to study cases like this back in college. Obsessive compulsiveness mixed with delusions of grandeur.

    There’s nothing we can do for him. He’ll continue this behavior no matter what. He’ll never be able to absorb anything that clashes with his idealized world. I honestly have tried in the past to give him some sound advice, but the fact that he not only ignored it but has continued on the path ever more ferociously is disturbing.

    I pray he gets the help he needs. Seriously.

    If you search “If they bring a knife, we’ll bring a gun.” leave the quotes on it you can find the info.

    Can’t fix SNAF :lol: LMAO :lol:

    Jeff, I think you mean Mr. Michigan.

    Michelle Obama is one of the ugliest ghetto trash cretins in America. Congrats.


    Be cool. No need to trash Nobama’s wife!

    No need to trash wives or the POTUS kids. Mrs Obama is not taking a major role like Hillary did. Even if she was, still no need for a man to trash a woman.

  • Hillbilly

    d.d. – H.B. , You called it.


    Shhhhh! AppleStinx will cry if he finds out i was right AGAIN! ;)


    P.S. From what I’ve read this afternoon it looks like Nobama’s budget was as previewed.

  • Moncon

    Sorry for your loss 1966

  • AppleStinx


    Sorry to hear about the passing of your brother Matthew. Our deepest sympathies.

  • 1966

  • dana

    usa1/2:: your facts are wrong on cigarettes…but what do you care about facts…Lorrilard, RAI, are all skirting the taxes through the indian reservations and non taxed states…sales up way up…perhaps you need a little secondhand smoke yourself little fella…
