    @Gregg K

    We always knew that Jeff and USA either get their talking points from MMFA, Moveon or Thinkprogress….neither one of them have a brain cell to think on their own.

  • Ralph Hahn

    @d.d.: What I called for before was just out of frustration. There are four or five individuals here who doing nothing but lie, distort and hurl their vile venom at people like me. A couple of them in particular are egging on the good guys/gals with their “economic plan” and all that when we are going mostly in a different direction for which this page was intended.

    There are other sites that I belong to to tackle other national and world issues, but I don’t post TV ratings on them.

    By cutting back on the “economic” posts, that should leave some of the morons here to finally shut up. I feel like a reformed alcoholic right now. I’ts been three (or four) days that I have “been sober” now since I ceased naming these nasty, nasty people and have stopped replying to their dumb questions.

    Just my opinion. I’m just another poster. I don’t pretend to be some kind of leader here, but I have been trying to convince my like-minded collegues to stop messing with these clowns. Just put them on a Pay-No-Mind list (quoting Joe Pesci in “Goodfellas,” and maybe they’ll go away. :)

    Chriscee is the definition of delusionary. The right wing GOP WAR ON WOMEN is alive and well and the important thing is that WOMEN know this–that’s why they voted in droves for OBAMA. Scumbags like Slimebaugh is the epitome of a male chauvinist and the legitimate rape supporters are many in the right wing GOP. Lian Rayn, Insanitorum, Robme, and others support the Personhood Amendment and are against birth control–yes, it’s true the right wingers are violently against women’s rights, which is why Obama won their votes easily. Chriscee continues to speak absurdities owing to her lack of education and fringe behavior….

  • usa8888

    Chrisceeis agaisnt the government trying to help grow the economy and jobs. How many people would vote for Chris? Very few….

  • usa8888

    Ralphie is upset because he has no plan for anything and can’t answer simple questions. Maybe he should go to the Fox Fake Nes blog???

    Feds Won’t Say if Tsarnaevs Had Gov’t-Funded Phones

    On Thursday, the Boston Herald reported that the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) refused to answer questions about whether Boston terror suspects Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev had a government-paid cellphone because of privacy laws.

    The Herald reported Wednesday that “Tamerlan Tsarnaev, his wife and 3-year-old daughter collected welfare until 2012 and that both Tamerlan and Dzhokhar received benefits through their parents ‘for a limited portion’ of the time after they came to the U.S., which was around 2002.”

  • Doug Z

    why did Obama win the President, McCain, the RINO

    McCain, Schumer Say Gun Control Will Get Another Vote This Year

  • Sicilian Papa

    The terrorists had Obama phones! Only in America kids only in Obama’s America.

  • Bobbyv

    People on the left have to stop getting a pass for their bigotry and anti-woman statements. The right is called out like it should.

  • Bobbyv


  • Sicilian Papa

    Holder stopped the interrogation! Geez, he is the most corrupt individual in US history. It is a good thing for him he works for a liberal. The corrupt, secular, left wing, so-called objective media would run a conservative out of town if he were as corrupt as Holder.

  • RealityChick

    Just heard on Fox, Holder sent the judge in to mirandize the bombing suspect. Yeah from one bomber to another, guess he felt a kinship with this kid.
    They lived on our dime, they were educated on our dime, their kids are supported on our dime, they sold dope, their mother is a thief and I wouldn’t be a bit surprised if both the mother and the ex-wife knew exactly what these jerks had planned and our slime bucket attorney general stops the interrogation without the FBI being told. This is disgusting. People were killed and maimed and they care about whether or not this kid gets his rights read to him over a legal technicality?

  • Sicilian Papa





    I keep repeating myself.

  • RedbarSoup

    I’m just waiting for you all to one day realize how foolish you are for debating politics in here. Even more foolish by being a cheerleader for your little sh$%ty news channel that you love so much for no known reason whatsoever.

  • Bsotgnw


    Tell me your kidding about the phones, please!

  • Bobbyv


    There are some on both sides who do debate…..and some who just like to spout.

  • Sicilian Papa



    Did you catch Tingleball at 5pm and 7pm this evening. That’s okay no one else did either.

    If a tree falls on Chris Hayes and no one sees it. Did the tree really fall?

  • RealityChick

    All day the question was being asked who sent in the judge to the hospital room to stop the interview with this a-hole…who gave the order…no one would report it because it is now going to become a living nightmare for the O administration…they didn’t pick up this guy when he came back into the country even though the Russians warned two separate agencies about where he went, they even warned us of the mother..put it together with they were on welfare and got money for an education, money we don’t have…people are going not let this be forgotten..
