    The left doesn’t know what civility is, they preach about tolerance but never practice it. They demand respect but never give it in return, it’s typical of the left..

    They spew hate at those who think differently and outside the box, because that’s what they are trained to do by MSNBC, and CNN news.

    The comments in this thread say enough.

  • Chriscee

    Only folks in the gutter here are the left wing kooks…the low information obama voters.

  • Chriscee

    Like that name Coffee Steve…..

  • Bullseye Coffee Steve


    I sent an email to Kim Dung Dung of North Korea, I sent “You Chicken or something?”

    And when no response I sent another

    “Go ahead Punk, Make our day”

    Still no response for whatever reason.

    Kim Dung do Dung said Friday April 12th he was going to shoot missiles at us. well over there ITS FRIDAY Dung Dude…

  • Jeff

    I know you were not referring to me, the same person you have been focused on for days now, hence my request for you to stop obsessing over it, maybe not the best word to use.

  • Chriscee

    In-fighting in the democratic party. Pretty soon..they will all run away from Obama.

  • Bullseye Coffee Steve


    I’ll be using a few names Chriscee

    I’ve had an enormous amount of coffee today :-)

  • Chriscee

    @ Coffee Steve…

    I wonder what Obama will do if Kim does try to send Missiles to any of our US soil? Will Obama crack and run like a baby? Will he order the military to respond?

    My guess is…he will crack and run like a baby. I don’t think Obama has the actual know how or balls to actually go after the North Koreans.

  • Chriscee

    Oh Lordy @ too much coffee…we are in for trouble…lol

  • Jeff

    What makes me most mad Coffee Steve, is that he is showing off to his military with his stunts and just like his daddy he will probably get away with it unless he has the balls to make a move…..I doubt he has balls or will make a move so he can save face with his military goons.

  • Bullseye Coffee Steve

    I wonder what Obama will do if Kim does try to send Missiles to any of our US soil

    He won’t have much of a choice. But at this point, who knows.

    Agreed Jeff. Problem is though if he is as nuts as his daddy he may shoot the stupid things. Did you know his dad would watch (I’m not joking) Daffy Duck cartoons every day? And he once kidnapped a Japanese Princess because he thought she was pretty?

    He did send her back after a few years and said he was sorry though :roll:

  • Jeff

    Chriscee is clearly rooting for Kim Jung Un……what an @sshole.

  • Ralph Hahn

    I watched “Thirteen Days” on cable the night before last, about the near-war with the Soviet Union over the placement of nuclear missles in communist Cuba.

    Jack Kennedy was the last great Democrat president and HE cut taxes during his tragic abbreviated term in the White House. I think that Bobby would have made a good Commander-In-Chief as well, but he was a bit more liberal than big brother Jack. LBJ dug us deeper in a war that we should never have been in the first place. Jimmy Carter? LOL. He was an outsider. Even the Democrats in Washington, headed by Ted Kennedy, treated Carter as an outside. I admired Jimmy when he first left office. He and Homes For All built countless homes for poor individuals. Then, he entered the Blame Game against the GOP, left on his own to “monitor” elections in corrupt nations and find fault with the USA, including some bad decisions that he himself had made.

    Bill Clinton was OK. I personally think that “Monicagate” should have been between Bill, Monica and Hillary and no one else. The President is elected like a CEO, to run the federal government. They are unlike clergy whose job is to try to be perfect. But, Hillary won’t stand a chance. She’s made too many enemies and if Obama wants Biden or someone to succeed him, out will come all of the bitterness of the 2008 Democrat primaries.

    We need a businessman to run the government. Not a community leader from Chicago, perhaps the most corrupt and clearly the most violent of U.S. cities.

    To my fellow Conservatives out there, nobody wants to take away your guns or prevent you from owning a gun to protect yourself, your home, and your family…I even own one myself.

    -What we Responsible Gun Owners want to do is prevent people from amassing arsenals…like that nutjob in Indiana who was just caught with 47 weapons after threatening to kill children at a nearby school.

    -What we want to get rid of is Assault Weapons and High-Capacity magazines.

    -What we want is to get illegal guns off of the streets.

    -What we want is to make it mandatory for people to go through thorough, and I mean thorough, background checks before being able to buy a rifle or a handgun…especially at Gun Shows.

    -It’s time for ALL of us to use a little common sense on how we go about being a Nation of Responsible Citizens, Parents, and Gun Owners.

  • Ratboy

    MSNBC’s Hayes: ‘Tax People a Lot More’ and ‘Expand Social Security’

    Chris Matthews Compares Pro-Gun Senators to ‘Jim Crow’ Racists

    Touré Defends MSNBC’s ‘Brilliant’ Primetime Lineup To Marc Lamont Hill… Even If They Are All White

  • Chriscee

    Jeff you are clearly delusional..try to keep up.

    Obama doesn’t have the balls to go after Kim…because he’s left wing progressives would retaliate and Obama can’t have that.

    You are next in line after USA8888 to be the dumbest person in the room.

  • Bullseye Coffee Steve

    @Ralph Hahn

    I was at a Radio Station some years ago when a report came out that not only did Cuba have armed Nukes back then, Russia had given Castro permission to give the order to use them.

    At one point after the KGB released some documents, it was discovered we were no less than 30 seconds from an all out Nuclear war, only thing that stopped it was a Cuban General who refused to plug the code in.

    You can bet he was shark bait shortly after.

  • Tired of the Police State

    Eat your heart out Soros you piece of s#!t

  • Chriscee

    No amount of gun legislation is going to keep a mad-man from killing. If he wants to kill bad enough..he’ll find his ways. Just ask the gang bangers in the most gun restricted city of Chicago.

    Chicago’s gun restrictions are some of the toughest in the USA….and over 500 people have been killed by gun violence. You can legislate until you are blue in the face…and if someone wants a gun to use to kill…they will find it.

    Liberals need to get over themselves

  • Jeff

    Chriscee, you aren’t a progressive liberal, so you clearly don’t think like one…so don’t pretend you would know if they would retaliate.

    what is clear is that you don’t THINK much at all.
