    Gas prices are rising here in Conn. Not a lot but they stopped going down and are rising a bit.

  • Chriscee


    I’ve heard it too…time and again….but like someone said to me yesterday here….with the Senate in full control of DO NOTHING HARRY REID…it’s not likely to happen before the 2014 mid-terms.

    The republicans should appoint independent investigative counsels…for each one of these scandals.

    I suspect that Obama won’t be finishing out this 2nd term.

    “usa8888? Does the gas price start to go down today? It jumped from 3.58 to 3.89 here in west central Illinois in one week. In Chicago the price is the highest in the nation.”

    He has no idea as he is following the Dallas, TX market. Gas is between $3.29 and 3.39. No ethanol gas in OK is $3.55 a gal

    Life is cruel to the low information voters (re. dumbocrats).

  • Chriscee


    Life is cruel to the low information voters (re. dumbocrats).

    Boy you can say that again!!

  • Bobbyv


    Had solar put on last year, glad I did

  • Sicilian Papa



    O. may not make it. I have been inconsistent on whether he will resign. He keeps lying and everyone who is paying attention knows it. He is worse than Nixon.

    “Your President is not a crook.”

  • Jim S.

    @Ratboy – My DNC buds say they are more concerned now about the Mid-Terms than defending the President. That does not bold well for the WH

    Your buds are right. At a local Democrat strategy meeting this A.M. we decided to really hit the cemetaries hard this Memorial day. We think we need to really increase our voting rolls for mid-terms. Getting as many names as possible. As we DEMS have believed for years, just because someone is dead doesn’t mean they gave up their right to vote.


  • lbsles

    In as much as all I have to do is sit around and post headlines, I guess I’ll leave the low information voters (re. dumbocrats) to just muddle along and alone for a while.

    Got errands to run and like-minded folks to talk to. Life’s to short when you have things to do that interferes with posting headlines and the truth on this web site.

    Be back later with Rush’s insights.

  • Sicilian Papa

    He just heard about the IRS scandal on the news when everyone else heard about it. This has been known for a couple of years inside the government. O. is lying just like Benghazi and the Justice Department.

    Sgt. Barrack Schultz…I see nothing…I hear nothing…I know nothing…

    USA888 1/2 (I’m paying homage to Fellini)

    Chriscee kicked your butt, Chriscee kicked your bbbbbb-uttttt

  • Raz

    The price of gas is going back up here in upstate NY

    from 3.59 to 3.63 over night

  • Coffee Steve

    Gas here has stayed fairly steady between 3.78-3.50. But its the gas futures that concern me. When memorial day rolls around, it could get ugly.

    I’m in and out of the garage today, so I’ll be sporadic today, kinda like my brain is sporadic anyway I suppose

  • Chriscee

    Look like OJ Simpson may get off with time served.

  • Coffee Steve

    *Time’s Rana Foroohar Laughably Claims Obama White House Largely Scandal Free

    She has to smoke some really strong weed for this remark.

  • AppleStinx

    $4.18/gal regular gas here in Northern California.

  • Raz

    msnbcboycott, having never watched The Ed Show, I can’t really comment on how good or bad his show was. Obviously there are a lot of people out there who did like it. But if his numbers were not there, a persons show is usualy cancelled. But if that were a factor, Al Sharpton should have been cancelled ages ago. So are we looking at a business decsion or a case of descrimination?

  • Chriscee

    The traveling Vietnam War Memorial is coming to Fort Collins Colorado May 22 and will be here through Noon the 27th.

    I have several family members on that Wall. I visited the wall 3 times will living in Maryland….and my husband and I plan to visit this travel wall as well.

  • Chriscee

    @Coffee Steve

    Jen Psaki was just on Alex Wagner….on msnbc (yes I do venture over there occasionally to see what they have to say)

    She said the same thing….these are just items that shouldn’t have any direct connection to the president.


    Obama has always said….THE BUCK STOPS WITH HIM.

  • Jeff

    Was kind of funny with Chriscee saying “theeeeey do it all time” then a minute later the dumb @ss posts another fake news topic within a minute. Then was called out by her temporary online friend. Hypocrisy at its finest, I’m so glad you are in here Chriscee! You just go right on and keep posting what ever you want.

    @bobbyv, did you buy your solar panels outright? Or through a program….they are very EXPENSIVE!!

    @Jim S(ucka) right wing whackos like you prove ignorance with every post, you don’t have to hide that you’re embarrassed to be a true right wing whacko, we get it!!! Be a proud right wing whacko like Chriscee, she doesn’t hide like you do.

  • Chriscee

    We have a billboard up here in Colorado…outside of Greeley on US 34..that shows Indians protecting themselves with gun.

    The left wing here in Colorado has gone berserk over these 2 billboards. Gotta love that.

    google this


    The blaze has the picture of it.
