    Thanks for the birthday wishes…………………………….Thanks for the shine Hillbilly. By the way, your mouse traps had no cheese, the poodle was gone and freezer was empty. Hope it’s not what I’m thinking. {Smiley Face}

  • Van

    We will never have to worry about Hillary Clinton. Why? Benghazi is going to show its ugly head real soon. She won’t have a leg to stand on in a debate.

  • Jeff

    @stan, you can’t assume President Obama isn’t going to act on Syria. You are your sources are flawed.

    In hindsight, Iraq was a huge mistake. Saddam was contained and had NO WMD, sorry Chriscee, your guessing games do not excuse the consequences of what’s happened. Iran is the hostile nation. Bush failures have made Iran and Alqueda more of a danger in the region since Iraq has been changed to follow the same Shi’a te extremist religion.

    I will admit Obama policies with Iran are Carter-ish at times, but Bush never did the damage Obama has with Cyber attacks and taking out nuclear scientist. I feel Obama needs to respond to their trouble making in Iraq & Syria with force that takes out any of their forces outside of Iran.

  • Jeff

    @Van, Benghazi is a Partisan Republican extremist fantasy rehashed over and over by right wing kook media. The recent review was BS! Not one member of the democrats or independents accepted the report as any thing other that what it really is……a political game…..and it’s a loser!

  • Chriscee

    Yeah liberals all think that the 4 deaths in Benghazi are just mere “Bumps In The Road.” Jimmy carter & Obama have a lot in common. Both imbeciles.

  • Chriscee

    Top democrats also professed & believed Saddam had wmds and he no doubt did. He had plenty of help to get them to another country. Andrea Mitchell ..one of the left wing media heroes also believes it. So do a lot of other folks

  • Van

    Jeff…..you are sooo blind to the truth. First Ambassador killed in a long time under Obama. First TERRORIST attack at home since 9/11 under Obama. Benghazi issue is not over yet. Has nothing to do with right wing crap as you say but journalism will bring it out. It will always be a thorn in Hillary’s side. “What difference does it make, they are dead already”. Those words will haunt her. She said them not some right wing crap you like to spin.

  • Coffee Steve

    Evening Everyone

    Happy Birthday Ninja

    And thinking of your family tonight d.d.

    *Russian Scientists: ‘We Could Face Cooling Period For 200-250 Years’…

    The thing with Russia’s global cooling and America’s GW scientist is this, they can’t even predict what yesterdays weather was and they expect us to believe any forecast of the future?

  • Jeff

    @Van, you can’t even get what was actually said at the hearing correct. No need to continue a debate on this topic. No mood for right wing kooks tonight!

    @if you are angry with a situation Chriscee, than it must be a good thing!

    @Coffee Steve, did you see ARGO? Just watched it….I enjoyed it a lot!

  • Van

    Jeff…it’s not what I type people remember….it’s the hearing and what she said.

  • Coffee Steve


    We bought the DVD and when we return from camping (we leave in the late morning) we’re going to watch it. Everyone in my family that has seen it says it fantastic.

    Were only going camping till Wednesday so we’ll be back in time for Iron Man 3. :-)

  • Coffee Steve

    Sen. McCaskill on US troops in Syria: Don’t rule it out

    I guess the United Nations has cold feet again huh? Why is that joke of an organization still in existence? If Israel passes gas after eating onions they want to invade them :-)

  • Chriscee

    I am not angry at anything. I know what liberals are…liars and cheats.

    Me getting mad will never change democrats. But if enough people get mad liberals will be lame ducks

  • Jeff

    @van, the GOP obsess over semantics, with words like “Terror” when it’s said or by who says it……”what difference does it make!” I agree with the actual content….not your spin version.

    On the attack note……over 3,000 Americans died in one day, 4 planes hijacked all died on board, 3 WTC buildings destroyed in NYC, Pentagon was attacked…….All under Bush Cheney and Republican majorities in the House and Senate.

    Don’t go there!!

    Two amateur lone wolf bombers at a marathon?


  • Coffee Steve

    Me getting mad will never change democrats.

    I don’t get mad or angry at all anymore, If I want to payback or get back at somebody, I just email my picture to them :twisted:

  • Coffee Steve

    PS: Or better still I email Ratboys Pic :mrgreen:

  • Coffee Steve

    Good night everyone

    I’m asleep already but my brain is just now realizing it. Told you I’m slow…


  • Jeff

    @coffee, it’s like Titanic, you know what happens but you still are on the edge of your seat!!

    A lil Note for ya: In the movie, one scene at the Hollywood Producer’s home the CIA uses to get to Plan ARGO, took place at ZsaZsa’s home, also the pool area too. I recognized it immediately. The furniture and pics were different. I didn’t check to see if they gave credit at the end, but apparently they also use the home in the upcoming Liberace movie too.

    It’s a nail biter, and very well done. It deserved the Oscar!!

  • ninja

    78 degrees today and was thinking of buying a motorcycle. Part of a midlife crisis?

    Liberals still blaming the weak economy and high unemployment on Pres Bush more than 4 years out,,yet you have the stones to blame Pres. Bush,,in office less than 9 months,, for 911 after Pres Clinton had bin laden in his sights and CHOSE NOT to take him out,,worse multiple cells of terrorist entered,,planed and even took flight lessons under the Clinton Administrations watch,,even worse knowing the World Trade Center was a priority target of bin laden’s,,since it was first attacked during Pres Clinton’s first term…

    “Two amateur lone wolf bombers at a marathon?”

    Are you so insanely partisan that you’re willing to conclude without any evidence,,that there’s no one else connected to these Islamic terrorists,,we should be concerned about..It’s one thing to have strong political views,,it’s another to blindly accept irresponsible naive conclusions…
