    THIS JUST IN! Comcast has decided to remove MSNBC from the cable channel and replace it with HTSYR. (How To Set-up Your Remote). :)

  • Ralph Hahn

    This is pretty much a snore-fest tonight. I guess I’m just missing Coffee & Ratboy.

  • Ralph Hahn

    OH, Ratboy IS here!

    Hey dare Ralphie boy!

    You forgot USA888’s rant on no one under standing ecconomics. According to Nancy Pelosie food stamps increase the GDP so we should be doing much better with 48 million on food stamps (and free phones)

    Wrong?? What part…You are like a knee jerk reaction with a rush to disagree….without thinking you just ramble on with only partial responses and Right wing talking points. You fail to stick to the point and blither on about WH tours instead of much needed support and care for seniors which is more important than a flight delay or WH tours.
    Since when is the truth right wing talking points? besides, they didn’t end sequestration for the FAA…they simply allowed them to shift the money to around to other programs within the FAA…sheesh..you lefties need to pay more attention to what is being said….

  • Zeus

    Here’s what I don’t understand regarding Liberal reaction to the Benghazi scandal:

    Whenever someone mentions Benghazi, the standard liberal response is, “What about George Bush’s wars killing tens of thousands of people?”

    1) If there was a scandal, and there was something legitimate to prosecute GWB, why hasn’t it been done? What’s stopping it from happening? If liberals feel so strongly, then they should rustle up an effort to do so, instead of just complaining about it.

    2) Assuming GWB’s “crimes against humanity” have been shuffled aside, does that mean that any future crime against humanity committed by ANY politician should get immunity?

    If there’s a real scandal, we’ll eventually know, right? Otherwise, why the objection to investigating? Are liberals only interested in justice when it concerns the other party? Are they willing to ignore injustices when it’s their guy?

    I don’t know the truth. I can only speculate based on what I hear. But as an American, if my government is doing something wrong, I want to know.

    What’s wrong with that?

  • Stan T.


    But you’re not seeing the whole picture…the reason the liberals don’t want an investigation of Bengazi is because they know it’ll go bad for Obama and Clinton, both doing nothing…and I now regret ever having voted for Clinton in 2008…

  • Ralph Hahn

    @Bsotgnw: I no longer give a rat’s a$$ what ‘letters&numbers’ has to say.

  • WD

    I hope MSNBC keeps all of its current players. … Comedy Gold and Priceless.

  • Moncon

    I’m with you Zeus.

  • Sicilian Papa

    I was thinking last night (always a dangerous thing) why do I dislike Obama.

    He thinks he is Robin Hood taking form the rich to give to the poor through government.

    No, I may not agree with his approach but you can’t dislike a man for believing in big government. Well, you could but it wouldn’t be a good reason.

    He is arrogant and overtly political.

    No, most Presidents use the White House for politics and they are all at least somewhat arrogant.

    He throws like a girl.

    No, he throws like most weenie metrosexuals.

    Is it because he believes in the most extreme form of A#ort*on.

    Bingo, there has to be something missing inside a person to support late t#rm ab#rt*on. A monstrous practice that O. goes beyond the pale to endorse. That is why I dislike him.

  • Billy12

    @USA888 Seriously dude, how can anyone not be embarassed to be a liberal these days? You can’t possibly have an intelligent bone in your body.

  • Stan T.

    Poor Rachel….using usa’s logic, 73% of rachel’s viewers are OLD…must be a bunch of liberal professors reliving the 60s through today’s college kids…

  • ninja

    Hi Zeus, WD and Billy12…………………….

  • ninja

    Is it just me, or is society seem to be falling apart? Need help from the old backward thinking people from the late 60’s – early 70’s on how much difference on now and then.

  • johnny

    I hope MSNBC keeps it’s roster of losers for in a liberalfor good,keeping the loons caged in that pool of #*@!

  • Sicilian Papa

    Okay how many times is the secular entertainment and news media going to trot out Jason Collins. I am not saying the guy does not have a right to tell the world about his preferences.

    It is not don’t ask don’t tell. It is don’t tell me because I don’t want to know.

  • Coffee Steve

    Good Morning Everyone

    I am sorry to inform you, but your break from Me is over, I have returned from camping :twisted:

    This story get weirder by the day and I really am upset at the apparent attempts to hide information from the public on it.

    *PAPER: Saudi Arabia warned USA in writing about Tamerlan Tsarnaev in 2012…

    (If one of those hurt or killed in Boston was in our family, how would this cover-up go over with us?)

    *Obama preparing to send lethal arms to Syrian opposition…

    Something tells me Syria isn’t worried, and Oh by the way Iran has troops in Syria helping Syria fight.
