    Gotta love those who bash the elderly. Remember one day…..

  • Coffee Steve

    Order is given

    If North Korea shoots Missile in direction of SK or Japan it will be shot down

  • Jeff

    Chriseeie, Kind of sad Obama incites so much violence. “If they bring a knife, we’ll bring a gun.” January 2011

    Another lie…no findings to support this comment.

    This falls into the d.d. Troll explanation.

  • Coffee Steve

    Gotta love those who bash the elderly

    They are just jealous cause they may not make it as far :-)

  • Jeff

    It’s one thing to make a stupid remark about the elderly, but it is far worse to vote for a lawmaker that would cut their benefits and their care. That’s what you support Chriscee.

    Remember very soon…….

  • Jeff

    @coffee, did you see recent movie Battleship?

  • Coffee Steve


    Yep, not many movies we do miss LOL

    It was alright, not HUGE but fun to watch

  • Jeff

    I thought USN would of loved the USS Missouri part. Did you like GI Joe?

  • Wayne J.

    “That’s only because REALLY OLD people watch Fox. Young people like me get our news from the web (Buzzfeed, The Daily Beast, HuffPost, NY Times, etc.) and via phone apps. Breaking news alerts on my phone work best.

    It cracked me up when I first discovered this page. A collection of old people patting each other on the back for coming together to keep FNC’s ratings up. It doesn’t matter what Fox’s ratings are if they are ONLY getting old people to tune in. Fox is not influencing anyone. We learned that from the recent election.

    But, hey…if it makes you losers feel better about yourselves (and Fox), then please continue. LMAO!!!”

    Probably the best comment ever posted in this comment boards. Trent said what I’ve been thinking ever since I came to this site. These clowns act as if they have stocks with Fox News. I come here just to get the ratings of news shows, but this comment section is hilarious. A bunch of right-wing losers with nothing better to do than brag about a channel’s ratings.

    Go out and get some fresh air for a change.

    OUCH. This must be torture to MSDNC. Maybe they can turn to the Geneva Convention for torture beyond the call of duty. LOL!!

  • Coffee Steve

    Did you like GI Joe

    If Bruce Willis is in a movie, I pretty much like it. I liked it alot

  • Ralph Hahn

    @Wayne J. A TRUE Kool-Aid drinker believing the left-wing idiots here over facts. FOX almost always leads in 1. Number of viewers. 2. 25-54 (THE recognized desired demo for cable news programs. 3. And, #1 in 35-64.

    IN those 25-54 and 35-64 demos, there are viewers 25 and 35 years old. Only the evil spin doctors here spotlight the older end of the demo.

  • Bobbyv


    Welcome, you fit right in with the name-callers who criticize those who name-call.

  • Jeff

    Was gonna go see it last Saturday, but the 3D showing was not showing after my dinner reservation. :(

    Will try again soon, with your endorsement. Thanks!

  • Ralph Hahn

    @Coffee Steve: I love Bruce Willis. Ever since “Moonlighting.” While in syndication of A&E, I videotaped each episode….but ONE. That was the day I forget to set the VHS. I know Bruce is coming out with another Die Hard film, but it’s been a while since he played in a character interacting with people not just CGI effects.

  • Coffee Steve


    Its some of the most Outstanding 3D shots I have seen to date, you’ll enjoy it

  • Jeff

    @ Coffee Did you see “The Fourth Kind”

  • Coffee Steve

    @Ralph Hahn

    Yep, and the interaction in these films are finally melding together a lot better. Used to be like some of them was talking to a wall, which they were and it showed. Now they seem to have mastered the art fairly well.

    And I loved Moonlighting as well. Fantastic TV sitcom

  • Coffee Steve


    You got me, I missed the Forth Kind, but will check the DVD out

  • Mike

    @Ralph – Point noted. Yes, I was trying to be facetious.
