    Well I see that the ultimate in class and Realtor to the stars is at it again!

  • Mark2

    @DougZ – Cable News is dying out on TV.

    Where CNN, MSNBC, and Huffington Post are way ahead of others is online news…and that’s the future.

    DC Ab0..rtionist on Tape: If an Ab0..rtion Failed, We’d Leave the Infant to

    “Technically – you know, legally we would be obligated to help it, you know, to survive. But, you know, it probably wouldn’t. It’s all in how vigorously you do things to help a fe.tus survive at this point. Let’s say you went into labor, the memb.ranes ruptured, and you delivered before we got to the term.ination part of the procedure here, you know? Then we would do things – we would – we would not help it. We wouldn’t in.tubate. It would be, you know, uh, a person, a term.inal person in the hospital, let’s say, that had can.cer, you know? You wouldn’t do any extra procedures to help that person survive. Like ‘do not re.suscitate’ orders. We would do the same things here.”

    To Obama and left wing liberals….these kinds along with Plan.ned Parent.hood are their HEROES.

    HOW SICK!!

  • Bobbyv


    I agree, thanks for your service.

  • Dreamer

    Well I see that the ultimate in class and Realtor to the stars is at it again!

    The ‘ultimate in class’ has been posting all day.

  • Jeff

    Seems what they spoke about in church yesterday didn’t have any lasting affect. In fact they always come out more bitter and nasty. ACDC has a great song for the likes……can ya guess?

  • Ralph Hahn

    @Ranger1989: Your post about your war injuries certainly put everything else on the back burner. Thank you, Ranger, for your service to our country. I’m a regular viewer of Bill O’Reilly and it was he who convinced me to join the Wounded Warriors Project. God bless you and your family and I hope that you’ll continue getting help for sacrifycing so much.

  • Dreamer

    And I did not mean Jeff.

  • Jeff

    @e ‘ultimate in class’ has been posting all day.

    I guess that means you’ve been sitting here reading all day then…

  • Dave

    Chriscee, it is apparent, you have no class.You are, without a doubt, the dumbest person I have ever read a post from.You must be old and will go the way of most O’Rilley and GOP fans.If there was a Heaven and Hell you would rot in Hell.

  • Dreamer

    I guess that means you’ve been sitting here reading all day then

    More like skimming through and shaking my head.

  • Ratboy

    :lol: :lol: well you can all
    See what the loons do by Jeffries last post! Twist and turn and change the words so they can post a snappy come back! I never said anything about all day, I just said he was at it again (referring to his name calling in such a classy way on the previous page) Loons, gotta laugh! :lol: :lol:

  • Chriscee

    Awww Dave..you seem upset. Does the truth hurt a bit much?

  • usa8888

    Thanks to Chriscee for helping the dems win elections. Hillary has an 88% favorablilty rating already in New hampshire and only 5% unfavorable (probably some of Chriscee’s relatives)–only Santa Claus does better. Chriscee, Doug and others tell the world their warped stands, which I have noted below. The American People disagree with the anachronistic and erroneous right wing ideology.
    1) eliminate birth control and support the Personhood Amendment
    2) eliminate gun background checks so more criminals and lunatics can get assault weapons and murder more children and adults
    3) give big tax breaks to billionaires with yachts and private jets
    4) replace science with creationism and bible study
    5) eliminate Social Security, Medicare, the EPA, the FDA, the Federal Reserve, etc.
    6) embrace racism, bigotry and general backward thinking
    7) worship lunatics like Slimebaugh, Beck, Hannity and send them money
    8) attend the CPAC Comedy Convention
    9) watch Faux News–the propaganda arm of the right wing (bias 24/7)
    10) ruin the economy by cutting spending in a recession or depression
    11) Obstruction, obstruction, obstruction

  • Chriscee

    I know liberals don’t like it when you post articles about the truth. So sorry..

  • usa8888

    Rat–where are your accomplishments? You get an F in this class….

  • usa8888

    The right wing ideology is an embarrassment to the fabric of the United States….

  • Jeff

    @More like skimming through and shaking my head.

    Sorry darling! :(

  • Ralph Hahn

    Chriscee: Continue to Ignore The Ignorant. Forget about their childish behavior. You doing one helluva job keeping things honest. And, no one would ever accuse you of sleeping on the job. :)

  • usa8888

    This just in: gun mfrs are moving out of Colorado and Connecticut to the dumb states. Colorado and Connecticut say “good riddins.”–We don’t need your kind of business.
