    As I said, I don’t mention pain-in-the-ass posters by name, but I just toss the subject out and if someone happens to guess the name of a “particular” poster, that’s their problem. And, I no longer call names. You are bringing back the past.

    Some of your comrades have referred to Rush Lumbaugh being a drug addict. He had gotten addicted to OxyContin years ago for pain, and was in rehab and I never heard anyone on the outside “who would know” that Rush is still popping pills.

    As far as the networks aligning with political parties, that was a nagging statement made by someone else. It was not all directed at you. It was an open letter. Did you notice that I said that your posts were not as bad as the other three stooges? And, how can you defend them? Any further insults directed at me, including bald-faced lies of what I said instead of including the surrounding circumstances, I will refrain from answering or even acknowledge them by name.

    Some of you guys wouldn’t be hurt if you take a similar pledge. But, like my Christian example, if you make one simple mistake, everyone has to remind you although they are completely silent on their own shortcomings.

    ARatboy: >>> See when I picture Dung Dung it is more or the “SNOT running down his nose” <<<

    I thought of that, Rat, but it is too close to lunch. I am out the door NOW. :)

    *House joins Senate in passing legislation to end furloughs of air traffic controllers, sending the bill to President Obama to sign.

  • Stan T.

    Obama’s actions involving Syria are typical…but they also give me this visual:

    I think of Obama as a 3rd grader on a playground…he drew a line in the dirt and dared Syria to step over it…shock, Syria stepped over it, and now Obama is drawing another line and daring Syria to step over it…is it any wonder the arab world laughs at Obama?

  • Coffee Steve

    Speaking of personal attacks, someone said last week that I never make personal attacks, not true, you should see me when I’m in front of a mirror

    **************************************
    That’s gonna leave a mark…well, if the media report on it…

  • Coffee Steve

    @Stan T

    My big concern is, how is Iran or North Korea supposed to take any threats seriously now? I mean are the red lines set by President Obama Red or Pink now?

    Again, NO troops, but since he did make the threat, he at least should start bashing the United Nations to do something.

  • Sicilian Papa

    One last thought

    I think a strongly worded letter to the Syrians is in order.

    See everyone later

    Paul–Europe didn’t want to do what our Fed did (given the right wing obstruction of fiscal policy) until they went into the tank…now they realize the right wing is WRONG!!!!!!!!
    ___________________________________________________________

    I’m not sure what this convoluted statement has to do with your inaccurate claim that Europe is instituting new stimulus “spending”??

    If you understood the history of Germany you would know the genesis of their monetary policy..The republican supply siders had little quibble with Greenspan’s or Benanke’s easy monetary policy,,during the Bush years,,however combined with historic debt,,every informed sane person should be a little concerned..

    I’ll try to ask you a serious question about interest rates and debt: Logically concluding that interest rates can’t stay near zero forever,,what will our ability be to cover our expenditures when interest rates normalize to let’s say 5%,,when every percentage point(based on today’s debt)will cost 150 billion in additional interest expense?

  • usa8888

    most of you right wingers fit some or all of the attributes:
    Right wingers –here is a psychographic profile of your group: mostly white and skewing toward old age; mostly uneducated; many are racists and/or bigots; most are insensitive to others plights and hence greedy; many are religious fanatics; most hate government even though they like getting their Social Security check each month…they also like taking advantage of Medicare; almost all are backward thinking, owing to their lack of education……

  • Coffee Steve

    @S. Papa
    I think a strongly worded letter to the Syrians is in order.

    Or another well delivered (At least by the medias standards) speech

    Back to school…

  • usa8888

    Paul–give me a break–don’t you have any economics acumen at all–Bush added over a trillion to our debt with unfunded wars, drug prgrams, and tax cuts, which Obama inherited and Bush had an economy built on real estate and bank fraud–which precipitated the worst recession in 70 years. And Paul, the right wing GOP thinks that cutting spending in a bad economy is good..that’s one rason the Fed had to act….come on, man, we need to get you into a good university….Imagine doing a sequester in bad economic times, makes no sense except to right wingers…..who are senseless…come back to me, man, with something that makes sense….

  • usa8888

    Paul–if the GOP had won, we would be in Great Depression #2……….

  • Matthew

    And, I no longer call names. You are bringing back the past.

    Playing fast and loose with the truth — you said I “don’t have the brain capacity to remember more than two weeks ago,” which is effectively the same as saying “you’re an idiot,” which is effectively the same as insulting me. Which, of course, I don’t mind; I’m not offended that you’re insulting me, I’m offended that you’re insulting me for the wrong reasons. You misunderstood my post, and will likely never acknowledge your mistake, or your rush to judgment.

    And, how can you defend them?

    When have I ever defended them? Now THAT’s a bald-faced lie about what someone else has said. I’ve barely interacted with them at all, except to point out to Mark2 that his constant ratings comments are really stupid, or to accuse usa8888 of being a repetitive dullard. You’re lumping me in with them, BSing about my opinions, misrepresenting my posts, and getting indignant when I call you on it.

    Again, if you want to see what the high road really looks like, you’d look at Coffee Steve. Hell, you can look at Apple, who manages to be sarcastic and scathing in his criticism of the opposing politics, without ever directing it at posters, or playing this passive aggressive “those PEOPLE” game you’re playing, where you somehow think insulting an individual poster without including their name in the insulting post is staying above the fray. :roll:

    ___________________________________________________________

    Since I believe there is plenty of blame to go around by policies of both republicans and democrats and don’t really care about your vacuous rhetoric or which economic policies you favor,,but was asking a specific question,,setting aside all politics,,can you attempt to answer a simple question without all the inane hyperbole??

    I’ll give it one more shot: Since interest rates can’t stay near zero forever,,what will our ability be to cover our expenditures when interest rates normalize to let’s say 5%,,when every percentage point(based on today’s debt)will cost 150 billion in additional interest expense?

  • Chriscee

    Obama speaks before an ab.0rtion loving crowd. Kermit Gosnell is Obamas hero along with Islamic jihad terrorists.

  • Ralph Hahn

    @Mark: I apologize IF I offended you AFTER I had taken my pledge, or whatever you call it. I don’t see anything wrong with posting something which someone posted and calling it a “bonehead idea.” I wouldn’t post it as answer to someone specifically and I’m not embarrasing them on my post because I am not mentioning their “names.”

    Calling someone a bonehead and saying, Hey, this is a bonehead idea, is not calling anyone names. And, before you criticize me, have you taken a look at these three or four individuals who slam ME and call me names? I won’t generalize with “you people,” but you should say something in public to your somewhat-likeminded people. There’s this guy “Joe” who came out of nowwhere and posted some of the worst things one can say about another person. Have you asked HIM to stop? Or “Jeff,” have you have words with him about toning the hate down justa bit? I don’t think so. If you disagree with me in a civilized manner, I will reply to you in kind. There’s no need to bring up what I said in 2010. If we may play for different teams in terms of cable news viewing or politics, there’s no reason why we couldn’t have an intelligent, mutually-respectable conversation.

    I agree that Apple & Coffee are the deans of this board as well as Sicilian Papa. I don’t consider myself in their league. I hope to, but I’m not there yet.

  • Chriscee

    To Obama killing children with guns very bad. Killing children by ab0r.tion is very good.

    Every American should be ashamed of Obama today!!!

  • Ralph Hahn

    @Matthew: PEACE!

  • Ralph Hahn

    @Matthew: I’m sorry that I called you “Mark” in the beginning. That was an honest mistake.
