    Chriscee–the GOP has NO plan whatever for economic growth and job growth–other than cutting spending and give huge tax breaks to the super rich–and we KNOW that doesn’t work. Europe has tried austerity and their economies have NEVER been worse and they are GETTING WORSE–huge unemployemnt and negative GDP. So Chriscee and other tell how this works–I dare you!!!!!

  • 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 reaching a level of psychosis that could be dangerous. I’m not joking. We used to study cases like this back in college.

    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. Delusions of grandeur. 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.

  • Jeff

    Lmao!! He’s not alone!!!

    Musician Kid Rock may have rallied support for Mitt Romney in the 2012 campaign run, but lately he is at odds with Republicans. He recently told Rolling Stone that “Athletes and musicians make astronomical amounts of money.”

    “People get paid $100 million to throw a baseball! Shouldn’t we all take less and pass some of that money onto others? Think about firefighters, teachers and policemen. We should celebrate people that are intellectually smart and trying to make this world a better place.”

    The rock star is trying to cap ticket prices to his shows at $20, “share beer, parking, hot dogs,” reserve rows for friends and designate the next 16 rows for paperless ticketing. The latter, though, is where he’s running into trouble with his party.

    From Rolling Stone:

    “That’s one of the times I’m f******g embarrassed to be a Republican,” he seethes. “It’s f******g Republican lawmakers passing those laws, you dumb@sses. They already did it in New York and they’re trying to do it in Michigan. I’ve even called some of those guys to try and stop it.”

    That’s gonna leave a mark!!

  • Chriscee

    Bill Maher is turning on Democrats!! OUCH THAT IS GONNA STING!!

    Pointing at Virginia’s former Republican Congressman Tom Davis, Maher said, “You know what? Rich people – I’m sure you’d agree with this – actually do pay the freight in this country.”

    “I just saw these statistics,” he continued, “I mean, something like 70 percent. And here in California, I just want to say liberals – you could actually lose me. It’s outrageous what we’re paying – over 50 percent. I’m willing to pay my share, but yeah, it’s ridiculous.”

    Others seem to agree:

    Democrats love attacking the GOP for practicing “trickle-down economics,” but their latest congressional budget makes Republicans look like pikers. The spending priorities and “investments” Senate Democrats propose to help the middle class mostly involve handing money to big corporations.

    “The Senate Budget takes the position that trickle-down economics has failed as an economic policy,” the document’s introduction reads, “and that true national prosperity comes from the middle out, not the top down.” By “trickle-down economics,” the Democrats are referring to tax cuts and deregulation — what a conservative might call “leaving people and businesses alone.”

    But in the next paragraph, the Democratic budget celebrates “the policies President Barack Obama and Congress put in place in response to the Great Recession.” Those policies are Obama’s implementation of the Wall Street bailout, the government-funded rescue of Chrysler and General Motors, and a stimulus bill that threw money at the likes of General Electric and Bechtel, on the theory that the money would trickle down to American workers.

    In their new budget, Senate Democrats don’t merely applaud this sort of trickle-down Obamanomics — they propose more of it.

    Just so you know, even though our ideologies may be at odds, I stood up for you in the past, and said that I thought you stood out as very intelligent. The same goes for a few others, like Matthew, who I’ve not seen in some time. Sure, we all get worked up and call each other names from time to time. That’s expected. But at least you aren’t a broken record, and have a sense of humor.

    That’s all I have to say about that.

  • Chriscee

    here is the REST of the story about Kid Rock…..He’s also angry with democrats in New York and Michigan.

    “That’s one of the times I’m f–king embarrassed to be a Republican,” Rock said. “It’s f–king Republican lawmakers passing those laws, you dumbasses. They already did it in New York and they’re trying to do it in Michigan. I’ve even called some of those guys to try and stop it.”

    But the musician’s rage wasn’t only directed at Republican legislators. “They’re taking a f–king five-dollar service charge,” he said of concert retailer Ticketmaster. “It’s 25 percent of the f–king ticket! That’s f–ked up, but I’ve beaten them up as much as I can. Then Walmart stepped in and agreed to charge just $20, and it includes parking.”

    He’s also putting up tickets on sites like StubHub in an effort to combat scalping. Rock, who said that all musicians “have huge f–king egos,” cited overpriced ticketing on tours by artists like The Rolling Stones as a big problem for the music industry: “The Rolling Stones are charging $650 per ticket! That just makes me speechless. I love the Stones, but I won’t be attending.”

    Seems liberals like to “place” fees also.

    Do I not fit in with your statement.

    I couldn’t have analyzed Hillbilly better myself, except that I don’t find him to be annoying. :grin:

  • Jeff

    @dave sky, stop the obsession……. Just some advice for you.

  • Chriscee

    Me thinks Jeff is stalking himself…lmao!!!!

  • Jeff

    Silly stupid Chriscee, Kid Rock is the stuff that The Rolling Stones wiped off their boots by comparison. Similar stuff that’s clogging your brain from working properly. The Stones can charge 650 and up for tickets because they can, and people will pay.

  • Chriscee

    I wouldn’t pay 5 cents to see the used up old farts rolling stones..nor would I buy any of their old crappy music.

    Stupid Silly Jeff….if you can’t take the heat….stay on the sidewalk..ok?

  • Coffee Steve keeping his guns

    I like my new name :-)

  • Coffee Steve keeping his guns

    My daughters idea by the way

  • Dave Sky

    Wow. I give Jeff a compliment and he insults me. I guess that shows something about his character.

    What in the WORLD have I done that constitutes obsession?

    Oh well. So much for civility.

  • Jeff

    As long as you stay in the gutter Chriscee the sidewalk is safe for me and everyone. Plenty of enough fans for the Rolling Stones willing to pay whatever to see legends. I already plan on it at the Staples Center in LA. You won’t be missed!

  • Coffee Steve keeping his guns

    Rats said he wanted to keep the loons out but he left the door open so here I am hehehehehe

  • Ralph Hahn

    Is this June? Are we already in rerun season???

    SOME posters here, when confronted with truth from conservatives all around them, will slink to the bottom of the abyss and WRITE THE SAME CRAP DAY AFTER DAY, without changing a single word. That’s their safety net.

    When beaten with The Truth, just lie, lie and lie again. We can all guess who these five or so people here, particulary three psychos who likely live in their parents basement, avoid contact with the opposite sex and have sore and tired wrists from two hobbies. One of them is clipping and pasting. LOL.

  • Dave Sky


    I wasn’t referring to you as the person with psychosis. I was referring to someone else, who is well known here.


  • Jeff

    Where is the insult Dave Sky??? You are a reasonable guy….find the insult in my comment to you and let me know? Also the compliment didn’t count all that much, when you didn’t quite have all your facts straight. I appreciate the effort however.
