    Obama 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 , but does not know how and is getting no help from the brain dead right wing Libs, Dems..

  • usa8888

    Hoppy–I like your dog….

  • usa8888

    Sic papa–it hasn’t been delivered yet….extra sauce, green peppers, canadian bacon, mushrooms, pineapple, Italian sausage, lots of cheese, thin crust….

    I think that until we come together, nothing will change.
    Those in Congress like and fan the separation.

    Yep, and as they will tell you in here, about 90% of my political post have said that.

    we really don’t want to hear about you and your palms or any of that! EWWWWW! Sick

    They do sweat a lot, I been using a drill all day :twisted:

    French Revolution, when the citizens stormed Bastille

    That is an excellent example Dana.

    All Sicilians make pizza, right? usanothing probably thinks all Irish folks are drunks, black people love watermelon, etc

    Oh My, I make Pizza, I drink Wine, and I love Watermelon and I eat Chicken at least 3 times a week. :shock: :-)

  • Coffee Steve


    I think I’m white but they tell me that its not cool anymore to be white, so I’ll just say I’m bone white

    Later Gators, have a GREAT FANTASTIC WONDERFULL Evening

    Its Red Lobster Night. I do this as a protest to PETA by the way :lol:


  • Ratboy

    And those dumb a$$ leftie loons voted for Obama! :lol:

    Poll: Hillary Clinton tops Obama

    According to the poll, 64 percent of Americans have a favorable opinion of Clinton.

    Though currently retired, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is still more popular than President Barack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden and her successor John Kerry, a new poll has found.

    According to the Gallup poll, released Tuesday, a whopping 64 percent of Americans have a favorable opinion of Clinton, putting her nine percentage points ahead of President Obama (55 percent), 19 percentage points ahead of Biden and 20 percentage points ahead of the current Secretary of State John Kerry.

    God Is Good

    I just found out right before heading out the door for Red Lobster


    ALL The Shrimp any variety I can eat for only 19.99 YAHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

    Problem is my coupon is for the Admirals feast for 15.99 (usually 22.95) But hey, I may suffer but shrimp comes with the Admiral’s dinner too.

    Its a rough life, buddy but someone has to live it :mrgreen:


  • Doug Z

    They were never peasants. It was the noblemen that lead. They sent in the woman because solders would not kill woman.

    French Revolution, when the citizens stormed Bastille

    That is an excellent example Dana.

  • dana

    Whats wrong with our electorate:: What has Hillary done ever to get positive poll numbers?? She accomplished nothing as a senator, nor as a secretary of state, nor as afirst lady…as a matter of fact, she was negligent in her handling of Bengazi and fluffed off having 4 Americans die with a cavalier “What difference does it make”…..This is who they want to run our country? Is this the best we have? My G-d…

  • MIKE36


    She came out in support of gay marriage. She, Bill, and Obama were against if before they were for it. It’s all about votes.

  • tony

    :P that’s a tiny fraction of the 350 million people in the USA that watch that trash called news! It’s just a money scheme, filled with hosts like Howard Stern, or Imus, just paid hosts that read what is written for them. Mostly paid for by drug commercials where actors claim their life was improved by taking a drug which in real life they never took! So the salary for the “hosts” on cable news is mostly paid for by misleading drug commercials! They do not fact check anything! It’s complete drivel, designed to help keep politicians in power for a long time, and confuse the American public!
