    I got your back Ralph….no worries….lol

  • edward

    Maybe they should move Erin Burnett to Piers timeslot. She is doing very good. Moving up nice and slow. Hope she keeps it up.

  • Jeff

    @Ratboy,Yes CRUSHED!!!
    @chriscee, Glad no dishes are breaking…….should we (as you say) stick a fork in Fox News because they are trending down?? I think we should! Their content doesn’t make me want to hurl, it makes me laugh.


    >>>Can “total losers” win once in awhile???

  • #s Never Lie

    It’s so funny to read some of the comments on here about MSNBC. The only number that counts is 65,899,660–the amount of votes Obama received. FOX can continue to have the most viewers on Nielsen, but in the end Obama will still be president. Get over it.

  • Moncon

    @ Ralph

    You know the saying, even a blind squirrel gets a nut every now and then.

    On a side note….. A rain tax? If you have a driveway in Maryland you are paying a tax. With this rain tax, the government will use satellite imagery to calculate the amount of “impervious surfaces” on a resident’s property, and add to their property tax based upon the amount of rain that fell. This is in response to the EPA’s new regulations. The EPA require Maryland to reduce the amount of stormwater that flows into the Chesapeake Bay. The reduction in run off would reportedly drop nitrogen levels by 22 percent and phosphorous levels by 15 percent. The cost for this new regulation is $14.8 billion. These are examples of the regulations coming down from the government that are burdening the middle class and small businesses.

  • Ratboy

    Looks like someone has left their sock drawer open today and the socks are flying all over the place!

  • Ralph Hahn

    @Moncon: Maryland seems to be going to hell in a hand basket (whatever that means, lol). A tax is a tax is a tax. REGULATIONS like that should first be voted on by Congress. We need an ELECTED Secretary of Common Sense.

    The real questions is…shall we spend insane amounts of money on regulations created by bureaucrats…of just hand out billions for ‘alternative energies’ to Obama’s campaign contributors?

  • Jeff

    Sorry Chriscee. Far better than Republicans…………19% Approval rating, OUCH!

  • Chriscee

    >>>Can “total losers” win once in awhile???

    Yeah I suppose the total losers at msnBS can win…once in awhile…Glad to see you finally ADMIT msnBS BS’ers are total losers.

  • Ralph Hahn

    #’s Never Lie: You sneaky * * * *. Come on out, one of you three or four mental midgets. Changing your name doesn’t change the way you write and WHAT you write.

  • Moncon

    Secretary of common sense….. I like it!

  • Chriscee

    Per Gallup….democrats in congress approval…lower than republican approval…

    OUCH!! that really has to hurt the democrat losers.

  • Ralph Hahn

    The so-called ‘Approval ratings’ for Congress ALSO INCLUDE the Democrat-led Senate, NOT JUST the GOP-led House.

  • Ralph Hahn

    @Moncon. Thanks. :)

    Costs of Obamacare Exchanges Double

    The $1.3 trillion U.S. health-care system overhaul is getting more expensive and will initially accomplish less than intended.

    Costs for a network of health-insurance exchanges, a core part of the Affordable Care Act, have swelled to $4.4 billion for fiscal 2012 and 2013 combined, and will reach $5.7 billion in 2014, according to the budget President Barack Obama yesterday sent to Congress.

    That spending would be more than double initial projections, even though less than half the 50 U.S. states are participating. The unanticipated spending is a consequence of an ambitious timetable dictated by Congress and a complex new way of offering people medical coverage, say analysts, lobbyists and administration officials.

    Combine that with a majority of Republican governors declining to cooperate with a Democratic president and U.S. regulators are left grasping to get the 2010 health law up and running by a Jan. 1, 2014, deadline.

    For the areas that money can’t solve, the Obama administration is opting for delay. It temporarily backed off some provisions of the law, including restrictions on coverage for executives and a promise to offer small businesses greater choices of health plans.

  • Chriscee

    Obamacare is going to end up being a FLOP for democrats….

  • Ralph Hahn

    The Democrat Senate comes up with a Budget Bill for the first time in FOUR years. And it DOES include tax increases.

    People and families making a lot less than $200K have more to lose. Gee, are we ‘millionaires’?

  • Larece Glavin

    One of the weirdest stories of the week: a man has been living alone in the woods of the State of Maine for 25 years. His PRIZED possession? A transistor AM radio so he could listen to Rush Limpbaugh every day! If he had satellite TV, do you think he just might be a Faux Right-Wing Propaganda Network viewer? He survived by stealing stuff, including propane and I’m sure batteries for his AM radio (they use less juice than FM Walkmans, or is it Walkmen?) so he’s expected to be incarcerated for theft. Maybe his jail cell will have cable.

  • Ralph Hahn

    Democrats in Hollywood and elsewhere are turning against Obama.

    Atheist Bill Maher, who donated $1 million to the Obama campaign, now bltc#es about how much in taxes he is now paying. I’m sure he’ll get by. He’s on Liberal HBO and since Obama failed to close the tax loopholes, the tax laws Obama proposes may include ‘a huge tax break for pay cable hosts of programs aired live on Friday nights’. LOL.

    My keyboard seems to need extra pressure on the letters ‘n’ and ‘u’ today.
