    Oh, it’s Chrisceee, the old lady right wing kook in liberal Colorado (which passed multiple gun control measures) who is against background checks on guns, against the US gov helping the economy and jobs, against saving money on gasoline expenditures, for creatisionism, for the Personhood Amendment, for bigotry, for racisism, for backward thinking–hey, she’s the epitome of a right wing kook, so what is she doing in Colorado?

  • Dreamer


    Who pulled your dummy cord? LOL

    I think that ones has gone off the deep end.
    Makes me miss Lbsles. haaha

  • usa8888

    Thanks to Chrisecee for helping us elect dems and in particular, the President of the United States. Keep up the backward, completely illogical thinking…..

  • usa8888

    Chriscee–you, old lady, have NO control over anything important. YOU helped us elect Obama who is leading the country in the proper direction in spite of loons like you obstructing his every move to improve the economy and jobs, because YOU don’t think that’s important…..

  • usa8888

    Most of the green companies are doing very well, but Chriscee who probably has no money in the Market doesn’t listen to the financial news channels….

  • usa8888

    Chriscee hasn’t got the guts to send her kids to Syria. She wants others to go…..

    @coffee, isn’t it movie night?

  • Coffee Steve


    I am a failure as a Father Rats, One of my Boys got a tax refund :-(

    I think I’ll ground him :-)

  • Ratboy

    Wow Dung Dung! Jeffie had a shirt just like that on just a little bit ago! What a coincidence huh? :lol:

  • Jeff

    @ I think that ones has gone off the deep end.
    Makes me miss Lbsles. haaha

    @Dreamer…..good one, but be careful what you wish for!! ;)

  • Coffee Steve

    @coffee, isn’t it movie night?

    EVERY Night is Movie night :-)

    Wife has to get up at 4am for work, we just got back from Church, so no movie tonight.

    Besides were gearing up for Iron Man III which has already broke the Avengers records overseas

  • Dreamer

    Hope all is well. I read this and thought of you

    But now, hot on the heels of the 3D printing expo, a new company has popped up with a real solution to our color printing woes. Introducing botObjects and their state-of-the-art desktop printer: the ProDesk3D. This sleek new 3D printer does something that is at once brilliant and mundane. It prints in all the colors of the rainbow, just like your average desktop “2D” printer, but in glorious three dimension.

    It does this in much the same way that we are accustomed to from a traditional printer: by merging the colors of its cartridges to achieve the proper result. Brilliant. The ProDesk3D also looks very user-friendly and intuitive when compared with other lower-end 3D printers out there.

  • Coffee Steve

    By the way I was invited to one of those real high society Derby parties with movie stars, sports legends etc… I wanted to go but at $2500.00 a plate I think I’ll save for what? Maybe 10 years and go? LOL

  • usa8888

    I’ll bet Chriscee has her gun rack on her pick up with the assault weapon ready to overthrow the gov….when Beck gives the signal??? No??

  • Jeff

    @coffee, ARGO? Or Life of PI yet?

  • Coffee Steve

    Argo, Thursday night

  • usa8888

    RAt–are you enjoying your Soc Security check from the gov???

  • Ralph Hahn

    I see The Gang Of None is ganging up on Chriscee. I gotta say…if I ever ended up as a candidate, I would hire her! These guys love to bully women. Probably beat them, too. Pu$$ies.
