    They just repealed the Stock Act

    They never enforced it anyway Dana. The bill passed gave it time to go in effect anyway, and now that that time was nearing? They decided to just repeal it. Our country is in a sad state Dana.

    San Francisco Restores Taxpayer-Funding For 6-Foot-Tall “The Healthy Pen is” Mascot…

    and …… What an adorable mascot it is to seen by children in parades.

    . Yes, the beloved six-foot-tall mascot for safe sex is literally coming out of the closet and will be back at parades and other city events – and this time he comes with free pen is-shaped stress toys!


    Just for 8888

    Study: Recession prompted slowdown in healthcare spending

    April 22, 2013

    The study released Monday by the Kaiser Foundation and the Altarum Institute said 77 percent of the slow growth in healthcare spending is due to the recession while 23 percent is the result of changes in the healthcare system, including HIGHER costs for patients.

    Hmmm…. let’s see 8888’s study now.

  • dana

    coffee steve:: I cannot fathom that they sit on their thrones during these insider trading hearings while they are doing the same thing getting rich..It seems like a discrimination case at the very least…It also, reveals the corruption of mentality at its very core for our lawmakers…They owe a ton of tax to the irs, get rich off of insider info., live high off the public dole, its no wonder Anthony Weiner doesnt want a real job…

  • Ratboy

    @ Hmmm…. let’s see 8888’s study now

    yea right d.d. darlin! He cant even get a new script from thinkProgress or MediaMatters much less research and study!!! :lol: :lol: :lol:

  • Coffee Steve


    As Doug and I have often posted, It’s the same pattern of Rome. The Senate (Congress) is caving from within with their corruption, immorality, & lack of leadership etc.

    When a group of so-called law-makers simply pass laws to help the corrupt be even more corrupt, the only ending can be one thing, the end.

    They exempt themselves from Obamacare, insider trading laws, they pass pay raises when the rest of the country is getting cut backs, they block anything that expands freedoms and they allow the Nanny Bloomberg’s the ability to simply ban anything on the pretense of Public Health.

    Can you ever remember a simple Mayor having that kind of Power? Baby Formula, Salt, Sugar, Cooking Oil, Drink Sizes, Smoking, (Oh but Pot is fine) etc…

    It’s pure insanity Dana.

  • Coffee Steve


    Shame on you, now you know good and well USA gets his studies from The Ouija board and his Magic 8 Ball :mrgreen:

    Sic Jeff continues to spout idiocy–you don’t balance a budget in a recession…if you ever went to college, you would know this…go back to making pizza…..

  • dana

    coffee steve:: terrible, their kickbacks and graft are probably sitting off shore while they want us to pay our fair share…Your reference of Rome also reminds me of the era of the French Revolution, when the citizens stormed Bastille…and people just keep voting them back in…ala Charles Rangel…Pelosietc.

    Grasshopper is making up things again. obama has raised any middle calss taxes and continues to have middle class interests uppermost in mind. grasshopper distorts, you decide…..

    Coffee Steve,
    “The Senate (Congress) is caving from within with their corruption, immorality, & lack of leadership etc.

    When a group of so-called law-makers simply pass laws to help the corrupt be even more corrupt, the only ending can be one thing, the end.”

    But yet people (even here) still want to play the game of my side vs your side. I think that until we come together, nothing will change.
    Those in Congress like and fan the separation.

  • Doug Z

    We know that Grasshopper doesn’t want to create jobs and improve the economy….any other left wingers want to tell how you create jobs and improve the economy by increasing spending during a resession?????

  • Doug Z

    Has Grasshopper got his pot in his truck with the hooch pipe …ready for the takeover??

  • Sicilian Papa



    Did Obama really say there were 57 States?

  • usa8888

    The GOP is content with 100% increases in healthcare costs every 10 years–that’s why most employers have dropped or severely reduced employee coverage…..Obama is trying to do something about high healthcare costs and is getting no help from the brain dead right wing GOP/..

  • Ratboy

    @ Sicilian Papa

  • Hoppy
