    Jeff, I did say I sympathized with David Koresh, I said that Janet Reno’s goon squad mishandled the whole thing.

  • Ratboy

    Well I can see I am not missing much since Jeffie/Dung Dung are on a roll!

  • Sicilian Papa

    Locked and loaded

    It seems the guitar people were raided by SWAT. They were using a banned wood. It seems another lefty guitar maker was using the same wood and no SWAT team. The guys that got raided were critics of Don Obama.

    “Hope and Change”

    “We are the ones we have been waiting for.”

    The Chicago Way!

  • Sicilian Papa

    Everything the Tea Party said about the Obama Family came true. WOW! Those radical lefties do not tolerate any decent!

  • Sicilian Papa

    Pushing people around with the power of the Federal Government. What cowards! The worst of the worst!

  • Hillbilly

    Finally the WH admits to knowing something. ;)


    ON BOARD AIR FORCE ONE (Reuters) – The White House was aware in advance of Republican Senator John McCain’s trip to Syria and looks forward to speaking to him upon his return, President Barack Obama’s spokesman Jay Carney told reporters on Tuesday.

  • Hillbilly

    AppleStinx – I wonder if there is a code for a politician’s neck getting wrapped around a lamppost, and a subsequent wrapping.


    Yes! Its code 3456..also called you will be audited. :lol:

  • Hillbilly


    How bout them Spurs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I picked them to win the West. :cool:


  • Ralph Hahn

    40-freaking-pages? Didn’t anyone commemorate Memorial Day, like attending local parades? Spend time with family bar-b-quing? Go to the beach?

    Seems that HALF of these 40 pages was US-Ahole beating up on Chriscee again. I know she can take care of himself, but it clearly shows how much of a problem he has with women. Probably a mother issue.

    @AppleStinx: Your post on Obama and Finnish literally made me laugh out loud.

    I’m pretty sure, though, that Harry Reid was a State Senator AND Chairman of the Nevada Gaming Commision as portrayed by Dickie Smothers in “Casino.” They did refer to Smothers’ character as ‘Senator’ at one point earlier in the film.

  • Ralph Hahn

    @AppleStink: Correction. Holder and Finnish. LOL

  • Chriscee

    The truth: Obama had NO clue McCain had gone to Syria.

  • Chriscee

    @ Ralph

    8×4 does not phase me! I spent time with my dad..who is retired Army and retired National Guard chief warrant officer 4. We went to Fort Logan national cemetery in Denver to visit my mom and then we went to the traveling Vietnam memorial wall. Was awesome

  • Chriscee

    8×4 is just another Obama LOW information voter

  • old Mike

    Friday results are in.

  • Ralph Hahn

    @Chriscee: Good daughter! He must have been a proud daddy having you there. My dad did a few years in the Army during World War II rising to the position as Staff Sergeant. But, his duties and responsibilities were those of Platoon Sgt., one enlisted man step up the Army ladder. With a German name like Hahn, he served in the Pacific Theater in the Phillipines. He died after a second heart attack at the age of 47, when I was 14, so I never heard his war stories from him. It was my mother who told us after he was gone. While my dad died at 47 on the 16th of the month, my mom passed away at the age of 74 on the 19th of the same month but 34 years apart.

  • Chriscee

    @Ralph..ty…and sounds like you are very proud of both of your parents as well.

    I was very proud to take my dad who will be 80 in October…to Fort Logan and to Fort Collins to see the Traveling Vietnam War Memorial.

    If that traveling memorial ever comes to a town near you…I highly recommend visiting it. It’s an awesome sight to see.
