    Let’s see if this reaches the masses. If people realize just how botched this thing was they will have a different opinion about how it was handled.

    As far as the idiots who brag about the number of college degrees needed to be more intelligent, it is all BS! A Bachelor’s or Masters or some kind of PhD degree means nothing if you are a professional student whose parents are still paying the freight. It’s a thing to hang on your wall. It’s not something that makes you more intelligent, it just something to show others that you ARE a snob. To me, if you are a “Doctor,” it better means that you heal the sick because someone with a year or two more “in school” can get a PhD and still be dumb as a stump. DOCTOR Rachel Maddow. Need I say more?

    The majority of American people against Obama and they do notlike his progressive policies. But usa0000000 always looks backward and would really lie it if we went back to the 1880?s–sorry Grasshopper, you and the fringe are out of touch and out of tune….

    By the way, it usually goes up in Kentucky then filters throughout the county but Gas shot up 50 cents and is now $3.99 in many areas here tonight, averaging about 3.80 overall around here


    That could hurt…here in So Cal, we’re already at $3.99…

    @uass888……………Come on over to Kansas late June and show us how to harvest wheat. Us backward thinking people can’t figure it out.,,,,,,

  • Doug Z

    The uneducated left wing uneducated young white guys on this blog have no place to run other than here because the American people reject their anachronistic ideologies…

    @S. papa
    Let’s see if this reaches the masses. If people realize just how botched this thing was they will have a different opinion about how it was handled.

    It just may reach the masses, all networks are knowing that the public is truly turning on them and turning to the internet blogs for info, and they know the only way to regain any public trust is to do there job and report.

    If they don’t take this last chance to get the public back Mike, I’m telling you my friend, the NBC’s, CBS’s & ABC’s are finished as reliable sources.

    if you have noticed in the past month or so, they at some levels are reporting things against this administration that they had stopped for 5 years. Its because of surveys each network does from time to time (Non publicized surveys), and the mistrust is filtering down to the local affiliates now and when that happens the Networks start getting an earful on conference calls.

    Here’s Hoping

    We have imitation Twinkies, ho ho’s etc from various companies around here, problem is I am a pre diabetic who so far has kept his blood sugar fairly normal and can’t eat those things anymore

    Now Coffee Steve is sad, oh the memories LOL

    I’m type 2….my diet sucks…no bread whatsoever…nothing made of flour, corn, potatoes, or rice….though I cheat an order of In-N-Out fries now and then…

    @Stan T

    If people saw the gas futures they would want to sleep thru summer, and now talk is Keystone will either be delayed again, or Canada may just say to hell with it. if either happens Stan, were looking at around 6 bucks nationwide this summer. And if people think the economy is at a stall right now?

    Pressure is a good thing. I do my part everyday. Stan T. reported about Gregory at NBC asking a tough question. Let’s see but I agree if they don’t start reporting news instead of propaganda they will eventually be finished.

    Rubio Confirms Worked with Cato, Norquist to Craft Pro-Immigration Narrative Around Boston Bombing

    Rubio said he did work with those groups on the talking points that use the Boston terror attacks as an argument in favor of the bipartisan “Gang of Eight” immigration bill.

  • Stan T.

    Today, even CNN was talking about if the feds dropped the ball on the boston bombers…I couldn’t believe my ears…they were actually reporting how badly this was botched…

  • ninja

    Going out on a limb here. Uass888 has never hunted.

  • Doug Z

    Going out on a limb here. Uass888 has never hunted.

    Yes he has! He shoots birds with his BB gun. But his mom and the libs are not suppose to know

  • Coffee Steve

    And if you have noticed some of the officials on some talk shows, their faces are like they are in total shock now that some tough questions are being asked. Since they have never faced tough questions, they simply won’t know how to handle it.

  • Tested

    Simple math right now shows the breaking news of last week is still helping CNN.
    25-54 CNN/HLN had 336,000. FNC/FBN had 280,000. The story to me isn’t the rise of CNN – its the fall of MSNBC

  • GFRF

    Always watch Fox News.
    Can not stand the liberal biased propaganda from the rest of them!

  • Mark


    Since 9/11/2001

    There were no terrorism attacks on the USA…UNTIL NOW…under Obama we’ve had 5…
    Call me funny but that 9/11 thing was sort of a big deal, to try and whitewash that and say well 5 things happened to Obama and they all somehow equal to 3000 people getting killed on a Republicans watch is well I don’t know the words to explain that kind of logic other then stupid.

    And just what are the 5 attacks? Are we counting Fox News favorite talking point Benghazi? Because under Obama we had embassy attacks, 12 under Bush

    Why? Why does Obama PROTECT Islamic Jihadists???

    Who is the Saudi Nationalist that Michelle Obama is so eager to protect??

  • Mark

    2 embassy attacks under Obama, 12 embassy attacks under Bush

  • Mark

    Ok so I figured out the so called 5 attacks

    2 of them the suspects were caught before they could do anything(Underwear Bomber and Time Square Bomber)

    Which leaves us with Boston Marathon Bomber, Fort Hood Shooter and Little Rock Recruiting Shooter which combined gave us 16 deaths and about 150 injured

    My question is why even include the first 2 cases? It’s like people who are using that talking point(yes I see how many times it has been used on Fox news in the past couple days and it’s almost comical……since 9/12/01 blah blah blah). It’s like they want to make the numbers seem worse then they are
