    I’m afraid to even check the news tonight, I’m afraid another scandal will be on the headline :-)

    Coffee Steve Checking is, I’m dirty and sweaty from yard work, BUT it must be done, so BBL…

  • Cynthia S.

    We rebuplicans are so smart. We demanded that the obama get to the bottom of the leaks and then we trick them into actually following through on it. Then when lame stream media complains about what we wanted in the first place we pull the rug out. We republicans have finally gotten obama on this.

    I just finished installing the family gun safe in my 2 year old bedroom where the NRA said i should put it.

    Go Fair and balanced!

    He is living proof that some Women should be born Sterile.

    And where is Papa and Ralph when you need them.
    Of course Zeus would agree with this statement?

    Apparent Dreamer doesn’t like me. Is it because I respect women and call out those who harass them? Is it because everything I’ve written is true?

    Dreamer, you know nothing about me. Why would you ASSUME I would deny Misogynist Jeff or anyone else the right to life?

    I’ve been reading your posts for a whole now, and I’ve always thought you came across as a decent, thoughtful person. I hope I’m not wrong about that.

    Don’t cast aspersions unless you have something to back it up.

  • Coffee Steve

    @Cynthia S.
    2 year old bedroom where the NRA said i should put it.

    I hope at least you took him to get trained at a NRA approved shooting range and taught him gun safety first? :-)

  • SteveB

    @Coffee Steve
    2 year old bedroom where the NRA said i should put it.

    I hope at least you took him to get trained at a NRA approved shooting range and taught him gun safety first?

    She hasn’t bought the Gun Yet. nor has she had the 2 year old yet..

  • SteveB

    However. The bedroom she put it in may be 2 years old.

  • Zeus


    And yes, Jeff and USAhole are misogynists. Anyone who would treat a woman the way they do is a misogynist.

    The excuse that “well, she started it”, or “she does it too” is lame. A real man knows that.

  • M2


    More potential voters are watching Broadcast News


  • Chriscee

    California, Ohio and Washington DC IRS targeted specific conservatives.

    Its going to be deep deep do-do for Obama

  • Cynthia S.

    I pray to the right god that there is another scandal right now we got blacack Obama and its time to impeach
    Fair and balanced go go go

  • Bobbyv


    ……..right now you don’t want them watching broadcast news…..

  • Mark2

    What on earth ever happened to Benghazi?

    I guess the smokescreen tactic worked.

  • SteveB


    More potential voters are watching Broadcast News


    And since they are not reporting about Benghazi, the IRS and the DOJ wiretapping . that would make most of the Potential voters Low info Voters. Just pointing out the Facts.

  • Cynthia S.

    Steveb the only thing that will protect my 2 year with a gun. is a another 2year old with a gun.

  • SteveB

    Right Cynthia.
    Call the police while that bad woman takes your Child. they will be there in about 20 mins No worries

  • Cynthia S.

    Bengazi is alive and well it is a true scandal I just know it it will destroy blaack obama
    Where is bengazi?

    Go fair and balanced

  • Cynthia S.

    Steveb I know you are but what am I

  • Cynthia S.

    No one should watch cable news! I said absolutely no one! They should only watch fox news

    Fair and balanced

  • SteveB

    Other then That. Did any of you see how bad MSDNC is doing in the Ratings
    they have been Flushed and or soaking in the Spetic Tank waiting to be pumped to the Drain Field of history.

    “Time for a Reality Check:

    #1 – NBC Nightly News w/ Brian Williams = 8,169,000

    #2 – ABC World News w/ Diane Sawyer = 7,469,000

    #3 – CBS Evening News w/ Scott Pelley = 6,412,000

    #4 – FOX’s The Factor w/ Bill O’Reilly = 3,338,000″

    More like #4-FOX’s The Factor w/ Bill O’Reilly = 4,700,000,
    you have to add both 8pm eastern time and 8pm pacific time. Just like they replay the ABC, CBS and NBC 6:30pm eastern show at 6:30 pm pacific time. Same thing. And FNC is a paid CABLE channel, not a free NETWORK channel. That means tens of millions more people have access to abc, nbc and cbs. and still O’Reilly is so close to winning the night. Give him two more years and he will be the winner. so back at you….Ouch!!!
    That’s gonna leave a mark!
