    Michael Page, Ratboy and Chriscee ARE ON FIRE TODAY!!!

    Keep up the outstanding work. :)

  • RedbarSoup

    Don’t worry guys, everything wrong with America is Democrats fault!

  • Chriscee

    when it comes to Muslim Terrorism under Obama…HE IS AT FAULT. He is the man who is suppose to be on top things and keeping America safe.

    If he cannot handle that job….then he needs to get the heck out of the way…and let people who can do the job properly step in.

    Obama has fumbled the ball more than once.

  • Coffee Steve

    I wonder if that is a record for Hannity too? 6,217

    Monster Numbers for CNN too.

  • Coffee Steve

    Yikes @ double post…(sorry)

    That’s fine, I liked it both times anyway, By the time I got to the second part, being old and all I forgot what the first part was about :lol:

  • Chriscee

    lol @ Coffee my dang computer sometimes just does whatever it wants to do…lol

  • Ratboy

    Hey Coffee Dude, did you see?????? RATBOY -SMART!!!! Nanner nanner nanner

  • Ralph Hahn

    @Zeus: Thanks for keeping it real, man.

    @Chriscee: People had forgotten that the U.S. and the UN had been trying for years for Saddam to open his borders so that UN inspectors can look for the presence of mass destruction. Saddam kept on fighting it. He only gave in when the Americans were about to invade Iraq. Saddam had thos WMD’s and even used it on his own people.

    JUST BECAUSE there were no WMD’s in Iraq when the inspectors were finally let in, doesn’t mean that Bush waged war into Iraq for some other reason. Everybody KNEW back two decades ago that Saddam was well-stocked with WMD’s.

    So, he moved the weapons to a friendly nation (probably to two-faced Pakistan) before we invaded. For the past few years, history is being re-written in an attempt that there were no WMD’s in Iraq. YES THERE WAS, but Saddam stopped stalling the UN only after those WMD’s were moved.

    Hey Coffee Dude, did you see?????? RATBOY -SMART!!!! Nanner nanner nanner

    I seen it and I’m just now waking up from passing out :mrgreen:

  • Coffee Steve

    The AP has went nuts, they actually are reporting the truth?


    Officials: Bomb suspects appear driven by faith

    Associated Press


  • Coffee Steve

    *UPDATE: Koch Brothers Turning Focus to Newspapers…

    Conservative Koch Brothers Turning Focus to Newspapers

    George Soros is in biggggggggggg trouble now

  • usa8888

    Mr. Fake Nielson again proves he is mentally unbalanced and extremely uneducated…..

  • usa8888

    Coffee–you mean Koch is going to place more false advertising in newspapers….the Internet is where it’s happening, bud…

  • Mary

    I read these comments every day. Keep it up Chriscee, you are so accurate and state the truth.

  • Jeff

    @Michael Page Somebody’s stinky sock is missing and smelling up the joint!!

    Nice try though….


  • HRJ

    Can’t we all just get along?

    The bombing in Boston was a very, very sad event to have happen. My heart goes out to all of those who were hurt and killed. I now have what I call Boston news fatigue. Not only the cable news channels, not only the first 10 or 15 minutes of the local newcast, it even affected NPR/PBS programs.

    Enough of the around the clock coverage.

  • Sam

    Till the next crisis, so long CNN…

  • Jeff

    Joe is on fire and very accurate!!

  • Coffee Steve

    I wonder why Democrats thought they had WMDS…hmmmm because the President (R) and Vice President (R) was telling him he did.

    I wonder, if the UN and international commission on WMD report with the United Nations and Britain at the head, saying he had WMD’s had anything to do with it? The report Bush received from the UN commission is the one he based his decision to go after and change the leadership in Iraq.

    Respectfully, ALL the nations involved felt he had WMD’s and was working on Nukes.
