    To Obama killing children

    Keep in mind that if his voting base changed their mind tomorrow so would he so we cant be sure what he truly believes! So if he believes this it is shameful, if he doesnt believe it but says it to please his base it is disgusting! He is an arrogant liar and can not be trusted but we are stuck with him!

    @Coffee: Since we can’t see you in the mirror, perhaps you can find out when Google Earth or some gov’t agency to make new maps, go out and pose. :-)

    When I was looking up my old street addresses, you can clearly see one girl, about 18 walking to school. She looked two-dimensional, like one of those cardboard standups. lol

    In 2004 when Google Earth started big-time, congress passed a law that banned them from even showing, myself, my house, my neighborhood. When someone types in my area it just says Classified :-)

    Paul–we borow at today’s interest rates, not tomorrow’s. And would you rather have a depression? Open up the econ book, You sound like a reasonable guy not a right wing kook like Chriscee….once the economy is growing again and the right wingers stop obstructing, money will be POURING into the Treasury and things will be fine….

  • Doug Z

    most of you left wingers fit some or all of the attributes:
    Left wingers –here is a psychographic profile of your group: mostly stupid 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


    Fax me some sage and BBQ rub for my steaks tonight, k?

  • Doug Z

    grasshopper-usa000000–we borow at today’s interest rates, not tomorrow’s. And would you rather have a depression? Open up the econ book it will crash, You sound like a reasonable guy not a left wing kook like jeff….once the economy is not growing again and the left wingers stop obstructing, money will be POURING out of the Treasury and things will be really bad….

  • usa8888

    I looks like Chriscee is not only a rightwing political kook but also a religious kook, like Lian Ryan and Insanitorum…..

  • Doug Z

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

  • usa8888

    If the GOP had won, Doug, you would be broke…

  • d.d.

    Ouch !

    I’ve followed the Pigford story since day one . This was on the front page of the NYT’s.

    NY Times Confirms: Massive Fraud at USDA in Pigford

    The New York Times reported Friday that the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has likely enabled massive fraud in the Pigford series of legal settlements, in which black, Hispanic, female and Native American farmers have claimed to be victims of past discrimination.

    The cost of the settlements, which could exceed $4.4 billion, is the result of a process that “became a runaway train, driven by racial politics, pressure from influential members of Congress and law firms that stand to gain more than $130 million in fees,” the Times notes.

    Among those influential members of Congress was then-Senator Barack Obama, who made Pigford payouts a priority in exchange for political support for his 2008 presidential campaign among a coveted group of black voters in the rural South, the Times reports.

    As president, Obama continued to support payouts for new groups of claimants while abandoning a review process that had been used to fight fraud.The aim was “buying the support” of minorities, according to the Times

    Double ouch !

  • Doug Z

    Obama has been MUCH less successful eliminating terrorists than any other president…and he thinks beofre he jumps…something the left wing can’t do…

    Obama had a attack just one week ago

  • Coffee Steve


    Detonation of Boston Bombs had to have eye contact to set off

    FBI checking into possibly more in attack


  • Doug Z

    Face it grasshopper left wingers, you are VERY unlucky to have the super unintellect of Obama and his team guiding the country lest we be subjected to the great logic of the CPAC Comedy Team…..

  • Coffee Steve


    All your post this morning and today have been exceptional, Bravo!

    Fax me some sage and BBQ rub for my steaks tonight

    I sent the rub but be careful with the sage as it can burn if it is on too thick and ruin the taste. Oregano can be burned with a positive effect but sage is touchy.

  • Coffee Steve


    We were called deans awhile ago in here, what’s the going rate for a dean? I’m not cheap man, not cheap at all :twisted:

  • Ratboy

    Dung Dung proves once again that you cant fix stupid!!

    “Right now, with money as cheap as it is, the deficit is not a drag at all,” said Albert “Pete” Kyle, a finance professor at the University of Maryland. “But if you look at what’s coming in the future, the potential drag that you see in the future is a really big problem.”

    This has everything to do with interest rates. With rates so low, it’s as if the government is floating trillions of dollars in debt on one of those zero percent credit-card offers in the mail. Those are great while they are at zero percent, but if you don’t pay the card off before the rate resets and shoots up, you can be in big trouble quickly.

    “That’s exactly the problem the federal government’s facing,” Kyle said. “So the big danger to the U.S. economy going forward is that interest rates go up.”

  • Coffee Steve

    Oregano can be burned with a positive effect but sage is touchy.

    I have no idea why but Oregano makes me burp wildly :-)

  • Ratboy

    Oh and by the way,…….we wont pay off the card before the rate resets because we are not touching the principle
