Well why doesn't JUDAS call his pal and tell him to get to work? Is FATSO still pigging out on all that Kobe Steak and champagne he got for all the photo ops and words of praise for TRAITOR IN CHIEF?

Fatso really needs to go on a diet. Michelle Obama will never let him in the White House.

You helped to reelect a president who has no reservations about killing a baby coming out of the birth canal by sticking scissors in the back of its neck.
And you think two men shooting off their mouth is unforgiveable.
This is exactly why we're screwed.
They were running for the Senate; and I am glad they shot of their mouths, they lost, so now they can shoot themselves in the mouth.
Their loss was a victory for women.

<quoted text>You should seek some professional help. I am an ER Physician and can think of no condition that would be allowed to go unchecked(by any Physician I have ever met or heard of) if it was the sole option to save the pregnant mother's life. Those most common being uncontrollable uterine/placental hemorrhaging, eclampsia or uncontrollable high output cardiac failure.
NOT delivering or aborting a fetus as you contend would NEVER be prevented at ANY hospital if deemed by a Physician to be the only viable life saving treatment.
And NOTE: I have in 30 years of practice NEVER had a "Hospital" "tell" me how to save a life,close a wound or treat any case. It is the Physician BTW that determines the type of care/practice of medicine the patient receives, not a right wing hospital!
Don't pay attention to Real Dave. He's just an old Jane Fonda worshipping draft dodger who happens to think people that served honorably in the U.S. Navy are "sissies". His views are insignificant. Just ignore him.

Congratulations Homer. Now a quick look to the future:
Grandkids: "Hey Grandpa Peppy tells about the good old days"
Grandpa Peppy: "Okay kids, gather around the stone fire pit in front of our cave, and I will tell you the story. Many years ago, we were not part of Western China as we are today, this land was called Virginia and was part of the United States of America. Back then you could have learned all of this from history books, but that was before the chinese government burned them all. You see, everything was great until this narcissist named Obama was elected president and proceeded to lead us off a fiscal cliff. Gone are the days of affordable energy and prosperity, but hey, we still have sticks and stones. Just be happy with what you do have."
Good morning Peppy;
That's enough chit chatting, get back out there and remove those Romney signs.
Thanks.
The people have spoken and we now know that even $800 million can't buy an election. We should all be happy, and Citizens United should be overturned and money taken out of politics.

No,the Chinese are our allies in that scenario, Homer saw the original Red Dawn, the one with Patrcik Swazye. Is yours the premise of the remake?

Things to do list:

1. Book that trip to Greece so I can get acclimated to what is yet to come.
2. Move more jobs overseas to avoid the brutal anti-business measures coming down the pipeline.
3. Buy a moped and get ready for $10 per gallon gas.
4. Convert all investments to Chinese stocks.
5. Write a book titled "The day Iran nuked Israel" and be the first to market with a book on this subject.
6. Cancel any and all retirement plans.
7. Create a new household budget based on unemployment wages.
8. Seek out suitable caves for alternate living potential. Beat others in claiming rights to the cave.

When the party is about to end and some takers are going to demand more goodies, but when the dollar drops furthermore and the plastic bag full of dollars get stolen and the money left, you guys can keep on calling everybody else ridiculous names while threatening violence and spitting everybody else in the face, we will see.

OBAMA GOT RE-ELECTED BECAUSE HE WAS THE FIRST BLACK PRESIDENT, FOR ABORTIONS AND GAY MARRIAGE. LET'S TELL THE TRUTH HERE.. PLEASE!!
No need to shout or bring racist/bigotted remarks. The truth is that people recognize that the economy is greatly improved since the trough of 2009/2010 and that people didn't trust Romney's Machiavellian economic plans. It didn't help his cause that Romney/Ryan and the Republican party alienated women and minorities and couldn't be trusted with any Supreme Court nominations.

Do you know how much your fine and prison time for not having health insurance? I bet you have no clue!

Do not worry, you will find out very quick when the IRS come knocking on your door.

And soon but too late you will wakeup and realize that elections have consequences!
