    Hey Chriscee, do ever get the feeling that ya just wanna SLAP the STUPID out of somebody?????

    My mom tried Rats, and as any of you can tell, it didn’t work :mrgreen:

    Been REAL busy, is this day ever going to slow down?

  • Coffee Steve

    So they are going to read em his rights and then book em Dano?

    I say let Chuck Norris have him for 5 minutes first

  • Chriscee

    Lol @ Rat

    If only I could reach through my monitor. I’d slap reality into the left wing thugs here.

  • usa8888

    Chriscee has NO plan for economic growth or job growth–she admitted it. And she says there shouldn’t be any plan…….If the GOP follows her, it’s done!!!!!

  • usa8888

    The cat STILL has Rat’s tongue, but chriscee spoke for him…The GOP is DONE!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Coffee Steve

    @The cat STILL has Rat’s tongue

    That image is just plain wrong :-)

    And My money would be on the Rat ripping of the cats tongue

  • Chriscee

    Poor 8888 can’t think for himself he has to cut and paste directly from thinkprogress and moveon. Poor uneducated liberals. They let their left wing websites do their talking for them. How uneducated can you get?

  • Coffee Steve

    My plan for economic growth, start focusing on the economy instead of issues that less than 10% feel are important

    Fire the WH and Libs in Congress and beg Mitt Romney to take over? Hehehehe


  • Chriscee

    I’ve decided not to 8888 first 3 initials. Those initials are NOT what he represents.

  • Ratboy

    @ Coffee Steve
    I have been extremely busy. Crazy cuz there are a couple people in the office going crazy busy and then the rest aint doin squat! the market here is better but you don’t have to go far and it is still dropping like a rock! Using Kalamazoo as the center point, the market is good for about a 15 mile radius due to some good things going on with business. Hit Battle Creek and it is terrible al the way to Detroit!

  • Chriscee

    @ Coffee Steve…I wholeheartedly agree….FIRE CONGRESS…Oust Obama and his liberal minions in the White House…and get people in there that have run business and know how to create jobs instead of Obama using props to say he’s created jobs..when in fact..we all know he hasn’t done crap.

    We needs REAL leaders..not some pantywaist community organizer who acts like he knows everything..when he doesn’t know crap.

  • Van

    It sure was nice and quite in here until usa8888 came back and started to cut and paste again. It sounds like a spoiled teenager that no one wants to play with. Obama said my medical insurance wouldn’t go up. IT DID. $2500 a year. He said terrorists where on the run, they are, right to our back yards. What happened to the “shovel ready jobs”? Oh they weren’t shovel ready as we thought. Benghazi. Where are the survivors to tell their story? Gun bill shot down by Harry himself to save his own seat in 2014. The Dems are scared. As we all have said and Reagan knew, the government can’t create a strong economy, it has to get out of the way. Print more money and keep interest rate low for bonds and the rich put it into the market and take it out. We tax payers still own GMC. Billions worth. Government Motor Cars. Record people on food stamps. The food stamp King Obama! 2 people shoot at a Pot Party and never any violence and Tea Party gatherings. Occupied Wall Srteet people star riots and want to close down ports. Should I continue? Get the picture? This big zit Obama has created is going to POP next year when Obama Care goes into full swing. All Dems voted for it and not a single Republican because no one could of possibly of read it in time. Nancy Pelosi in her own words, ” you have to pass it to find out what’s in it”. Lot of Dems are starting to not like the medicine they have to take.

  • Chriscee

    Friday is open kids!!

  • Jeff

    Chriscee doesn’t speak for anyone, except a dwindling group of angry bitter individuals who are unable to accept reality. I know many Republicans, and they are embarrassed by the party’s direction and self destructive path. The 6 or 7 that console each other in here is NOT a representation of a majority of sensible conservatives that are very disappointed and ashamed of what people like Chriscee and her sympathizers have done or are failing to do.

  • dana

    Leave the Little Fella alone everyone, he’s the cutest little pet we ever had on this site…so frisky and playful, doesnt eat that much, mimics other human thoughts with none of his own, and we dont have to even clean his cage…

  • Chriscee

    Under Obama and his liberal minions….you liberals should know all about the
    Tick Tick Tick Tick sounds…

    It’s Obama’s economy….clocking down…and it’s going to going to BOOM!! And America will be sorry they voted for Obama.

  • usa8888

    The good news is that the uneducated right wing kooks on this blog can pontificate to their hearts’ content but we all remain very fortunate that Obama is President and the situation is well under control. Most of these right iwng kooks on this site couldn’t pass a high school entrance exam, yet they have the gall to pretend know something. Of course, they don’t, and fortunately, they control nothing, which is a good thing. Just get out of the way and let Obama do his magic and things will be fine…and tell your right wing nut jobs in the House to do the same!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • usa8888

    Jeff brings up a good point: many moderate Republicans are embarrassed by the right wing of their party and most strategists feel that if the right wing doesn’t bend to toward moderation, the Party is toast!!!!!!!!!!! BUT, right wingers are so brain dead and stubborn, they don’t realize this…which is good for dems…..

  • usa8888

    By the way, Rat–could you send me some new sunglasses and a cobalt blue t-shirt????

  • usa8888

    This just in from Fox Fake News: Jim demint, a far right kook who was booted from the Party and is aligned with a group of loons in DC, thinks immigration reform is coming too fast. This guy also thinks the Earth is flat…..
