    How many of these “undocumented” squatters are in drug cartels, or the Russian mob, or human traffickers from Asia we’re encouraging them to stay and don’t deport them. I agree with Doug Z. The blood of any American murdered is on the hands of this administration and Home Land Security. We have the ability to track just about everything and everyone so there is no excuse anymore why we are keeping these people here. Seems to me with all the unemployment in this country they can put people back to work in the border control business. Instead of sending them a check, give them a job and get rid of the illegals and squatters as a bonus.

    The extemely uneducated right wing blogger bozos have yet to state the right wing’s economic and jobs plan. They lost big in the election and they will continue to lose big in the future…as they follow the lunatic leaders, Beck and Slimebaugh….and as they reject the will of the American people who are solidly supportive of Obama…

  • usa8888

    Right wing priorities:
    1) eliminate birth control and support the Personhood Amendment
    2) eliminate gun background checks so more criminals and lunatics can get assault weapons and murder more children and adults
    3) give big tax breaks to billionaires with yachts and private jets
    4) replace science with creationism and bible study
    5) eliminate Social Security, Medicare, the EPA, the FDA, the Federal Reserve, etc.
    6) embrace racism, bigotry and general backward thinking
    7) worship lunatics like Slimebaugh, Beck, Hannity and send them money
    8) attend the CPAC Comedy Convention
    9) watch Faux News–the propaganda arm of the right wing (bias 24/7)
    10) ruin the economy by cutting spending in a recession or depression
    11) Obstruction, obstruction, obstruction

  • Borris O’Tool

    Yesterday I lost the last modicum of respect that I had for Chris Mathews. He finally covered the Dr Kermit Gosnell case . His opening remark was that the judge had thrown out 3 of the murder charges against the Doctor, and it went down hill for there. Tip O’Neill is doing cartwheels in his grave. If I were an O’Neill instead of an O’Tool I would get a court order to stop this idiot from dragging a proud Irish name into sewer with him. The only consolation is that no one is watching this “Amadan” as they say in the mother country.

  • Sicilian Papa



    The bombers collected welfare, they were not watched after being warned by the Russians, the police presence at the finish line was weak, the CIA and FBI did not share information, they may have been attending a radical mosque in blue state Mass., they had four days to run but lucky for authorities they did not.

    Not exactly our finest hour,

  • Doug Z

    Ralph Hahn

    I was just trying to say that the Gov let these people in the country, both parties. so they are responsible . If The Gov did not let them in it would not have happened.

  • Doug Z

    Schumer-Rubio Bill Creates Millions of New Voters in Just 5 Years

  • Doug Z

    The extremely uneducated left wing blogger bozos have yet to state the left wing’s economic and jobs plan. They will lose big in the election and they will continue to lose big in the future… the great leaders, Beck and Limbaugh…. have will of the American people who are solidly supportive of Them

  • Jeff

    I like your attitude Dave, come by more often!! You hit the nail right on the head!!

  • Chriscee

    Hey msnBS….do you hear



  • Jeff

    Republican Party is still on their way in becoming a minority party. Their anti Islam comments and attacking an entire religion will not serve them well, but this is a consistent with the party of white men, in addition to their war on women, and throwing Hispanics under the bus in a desperate attempt to link the Boston bombing to the immigration bill.

  • Chriscee

    My right wing priority is to be sure to disable — some guy with 4 numbers behind his name….cut and paste feature on his keyboard. And then maybe to knock some sense into his brain. If that’s at all possible.

  • Chriscee

    GW Bush’s approval rating is NOW HIGHER THAN OBAMA’S….

    How does that feel left wingers???

    At least after 9/11/2001 America was safer….until that is…we got stuck with Obama.

  • Jeff

    @Schumer-Rubio Bill Creates Millions of New Voters in Just 5 Years

    The immigration bill will create 5 million New Democrats!! This is why the GOP must stop the immigration bill.

  • Chriscee

    Per Gallup dot come

    Obama approval 48%
    Obama disapproval 45%

    Obama is sinking as fast as msnBS!!!

    Of course they go hand in hand.

  • Chriscee

    From the Wannabee upcoming Mayor of New York City…

    Weiner warns of more inappropriate pictures

    “If reporters want to go try to find more, I can’t say that they’re not going to be able to find another picture, or find another — you know, person who may want to come out on their own, but I’m not going to contribute to that,” Weiner told RNN-TV.

    “The basics of the story are not gonna change, it’s behind me, it was a huge mistake.”

    Weiner was also asked if it was possible that women would come forward to reveal that they had met the senator in person, presumably to conduct an extramarital affair.

    “I never met the women who were at the other end of these anonymous conversations,” Weiner said.

    Anthony Weiner is another wanker.

  • Dave

    I remember well how the country came together after 9/11.
    Now the right wing nuts are blaming President Obama for Boston.This is why the GOP will never win another national election.

  • ninja

    Uass888……………………SEEK HELP!!!! Truly worried for your wellbeing.

  • Chriscee

    From Politico dot come

    Judge skeptical of Obama in executive privilege fight

    A federal judge gave a skeptical reception Wednesday to the Obama administration’s arguments that the courts should stay out of the dispute over the Justice Department’s refusal to turn over some Operation Fast and Furious-related documents to a House committee.

    Last June, the fight led President Barack Obama to assert executive privilege over the records of the controversial gun trafficking investigation, and to House votes finding Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress for defying a subpoena from the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.


  • Jeff

    Fox News losing lots of viewers since the bombing…..the only reason people tuned in….. All the conspiracy theories and negative stories are chasing sensible people away in massive numbers.

    They are ahead of CNN and msnbc…..but are sinking back to normal depleted viewers fast!!
