Billionaire John McAfee, inventor of the popular McAfee Anti-virus software, illicit "bath-salts" manufacturer, staunch Obama supporter and all-around really weird guy, is wanted by police in Belize for the cold-blooded murder of his neighbor, rumored to be sparked by an argument over a barking dog. These types of people are typical of Obama supporters.

Nationwide, more than 47.1 million Americans are on food stamps. That includes 4.1 million in California and close to 4 million in Texas according to USDA.
There were 26.3 million Americans on food stamps in 2007 before the big recession started and 28.2 million in 2008 before Barack Obama started his first term.

I was thinking 47 million, not 47%.
One in six Americans are now receiving government aid.
Close to 10 million receive unemployment insurance, nearly four times the number from 2007.

You are a woman all you care about is tax payed contraceptives.
You do not care about your kids, parents or grandparents, all you care about is you and free contraceptives, that is what Obama said. You are a waking vagina.
Single liberal women have pretty much diminished themselves without any help from anyone.

They want to kill their unborn babies and get free birth control.

Two obscure conservatives go overboard in suggesting the life of the unborn should be preserved at all costs, and they label the entire party as supporters of rape.

The modern-day liberal woman has become the epitomy of hysteria with an unhealthy mentality of self-importance that trumps everyone and everything else.

Electing a president who put abortion and forcing taxpayers to pay for women's birth control at the top of the list is what we got.

We're now officially a nation condoning the killing of human life and demanding free conception.

It's gonna have to get really bad before it gets better.

Hi Carol, I am listening to O'Reilly as well. The guy real knows how to find the right words, doesn't he. I often think that is what liberals hate about him. He isn't over the top like Limbaugh or Hannity, he just has a very concise way of conveying conservative values. Like tonight, he said "abortions for mere convenience" were just wrong as a value for our society. Liberal policies have promoted out of wedlock births and statistics prove that out. Not a problem if those births were mainly to women that could provide the means for support, but that is not the case. Too many require entitlements to raise their illigitimate children.
You go! Make Bristol Palin pay back her GOVERNMENT subsidized healthcare!

Welfare was designed to be a temporary help up and not a lifestyle.

UPS, the shipping giant, is withdrawing financial support from the Boy Scouts of America due to their policy of not accepting homosexual NAMBLA members as scout leaders. Now we can watch UPS's profits tumble as much as Chic-Fil-A's profits skyrocketed. GO FEDEX!!! GO USPS!!!

As for slavery, it was a regional issue just like the vote on the civil rights act.
Today, the KKK is a right wing organization.
Yeah, and the Democrat jackass is really a zebra.
Your dismissive post proves how cavalier Democrats still are regarding blacks. You use them to work your politics like you once used them to work your fields.

They draw too much attention away from him. I expect Obama will start wearing gaudy medals and bright sashes with ribbons and bows, pretty soon.

Not getting it....

No sooner did Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney revive the Moocher Myth than his critics jumped in with evidence to challenge it.

The Moocher Myth is this: People who vote Republican are successful, responsible strivers who pay taxes and keep the U.S. government afloat, while people who vote for Democrats are irresponsible moochers living off government programs. In Romney’s phrase, they are the 47 percent “who are dependent on government, who believe they are victims.” Reporter Mike Barnicle was criticized for saying something similar after the 2000 presidential election, claiming that the blue states on the map that voted for Al Gore were the “sense of entitlement” states.

But research then and now has pointed out that the states that got the most per capita in federal dollars were more likely to vote for Republicans. What explains this paradox?

http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2012-09-19/blam...

I wonder if FOX could explain the paradox?

Ya'll can say what you think sounds good for the ears of listeners. I dont agee with abortion, but I don't condemn or judge those that do. Ya'll problem is ya'll still look at women like betsey ross or someone from back in those 12yrs. Like they ya'll possession. Ya'll talk as if ya'll know whats those womens. on mentally, emotionally. The only thing that I dont agree with is if it takes 2 to make it & if she decides to have it, the fathers hand gets forced so he deserve some say so if he wants to keep the baby, it should take 2 to make that decision also.

It remains a mystery why places that receive the most per person in federal spending, particularly on welfare programs, vote in presidential elections for the party that wants to cut those programs.

Paradoxial dilemma for a FOXbot.

Funny how the only real relief in those areas is coming from christian churches. They are providing water, food, clothes and other useful items. Fema is offering excuses.
You're either incredibly misinformed or a right wing liar..... Or both....

He has every right to discuss the potential outcomes of a pregnancy, should one occur, with his partner. If she indicates she would not want to gestate, he has every right not to wet his willie with her. He has every right to wear a condom EVERY SINGLE TIME he has sex. He has every right to masturbate instead of engaging in sex with another person.
