    @You rip McCain for being a doddering old fool and then champion him as the man of reason

    >But he IS SP, McCain IS both those things. :lol:

    Don’t you agree, he made MAJOR fools out of Cruz and his allies.

    I went to that tea party rally in 2011. I am going this summer and I am going to join and work with them. They told the truth and I have talked to other friends and they want to join.

    Sorry Jeff, Don Obama and his Chicago crew have awakened a sleeping giant. We will be keeping a close eye on O.s DOJ and IRS. Safety in numbers. We are organizing as the left sleeps.

    We know we will not get any justice from the corrupt media or the corrupt leftest government. We are going to rock the vote in 2014.

    The Arias penalty phase reversal had court watchers buzzing last night.

    >A group of more than 70 protesters at the San Bernardino office said that action exemplified governmental overreach, and they took the opportunity to call for everything from a repeal of the Affordable Care Act – Obamacare – to a scaling down of nearly all

    TheSBNews…. You were off by just 130 people!!

  • Sicilian Papa

    We are talking about forming a tea party chapter of our own. Most of the people I am talking to are weary about revealing details of our possible group.

    They have families and are afraid of the Obama Government.

  • Doug Z

    Jeff there are only three blacks in Russia. We now have more people in prison than they do, and less population.

    elected a Black Russian to the presidency?

  • d.d.



    Does newscorpse have tax exempt status?

    I’m not sure, but, I very much doubt it.


    Have you been reading about this ?

    Scores Of NJ Bars/Restaurants, Including Many TGI Fridays, Busted For Substituting Top Scotch With Rubbing Alchohol, Other Things

    At one bar, a mixture that included rubbing alcohol and caramel coloring was sold as scotch. In another, premium liquor bottles were refilled with water – and apparently not even clean water at that + cheaper liquor.

  • Jeff

    Thanks Doug….., koo koo! we learn something new everyday…or as we call it on this site “a ratboy”


  • Sicilian Papa



    I don’t doubt it and I am going to find out.

    The Tea Party is reviving. It didn’t go away. It just slid back a little.

    Most of the Tea Parties across the nation were run by women. When the Democrats started this war on Tea Parties/war on women by targeting them, the Tea Part women thought it was just themselves individually being targeted. They pulled back. They didn’t realize until the last month this targeting by the Obama Administration was going on all over the country to many Tea Parties.

    NOW these women are ticked. They’re roaring mad now.

    There’s a huge Tea Party lawsuit being formed. That is going to show more evidence than Congress can get at because it’s a civil lawsuit. With the Tea Party suing the IRS and the IRS people individually that targeted them, we’re going to watch this all unravel. It’s going to get very interesting. I am behind them all the way.

    Back in the day, I used to get emails from Tea Parties all over the country. It slowed down. Now everyday I’m getting more and more Tea Party emails. It’s so refreshing.

    The Tea Party is now up and running and stronger than ever.

  • BevAG

    @ Papa

    I’m right behind you. New Tea Parties are forming all over and the old ones are reviving.

  • Ralph Hahn

    I think the Democratic Party actually PAID Jeffy to continue to spread the bu11$#1t around today. Not even worth commenting and/or correcting his ‘facts’ which were fabricated using pay-doh. Duh. Jeffy must write on bathroom walls with his own excrement for a living.
