lol! Actually, I was appalled when bushie, his brother, Kathy Harris and John Roberts made him president.<quoted text>
If the United States was a parliamentary democracy, John Boehner would be the Prime Minister.
The Electoral College system should be left unchanged.
But it's great fun to see you leftwingers defending the Electoral College.

lol! You must know something I don't....
... but you just don't know what that is!
#842736 Jan 19, 2013
lol! That might be true...
.... but it's exponentially better than what any GOP candidate would have done! To be fair, Romney may have caused the least damage if he had gotten in.
But he promised all sorts of things to all sorts of people. And the stupid tea-p surely didn't help the cuase!

The correct expression is "Hear, hear", not "Here! Here!"
You really are much more ignorant than imagined.

A normal business cycle made worse by Obama's clueless meddling.
#842740 Jan 19, 2013
lol! I still recall "drill, baby, drill."
And today, there's less drilling....
Yet, the US is now an net exporter of gas.....
While refineries are closed....
And cons blame Obama for high gas prices....
And they have no idea how all of this is related!
It's so comical!

A poor economy extending through 2016 is inevitable because of Obama's incompetent policies.
Not my plan or my hope, but Obama's grand design.
#842742 Jan 19, 2013
I thought the debt ceiling was one.
I notice most of the crisis' so far are those manufactured by cons!

John Roberts was not on the Supreme Court in 2000.
Three strikes and you're outta there, ya dumb bastard!

lol! Nuts to you, my friend!
Hear Hear or Here Here?
Posted on November 10, 2008 by Abacquer
So today I found myself agreeing with someone online and went to type “hear hear” but then remembered seeing someone else type “here here” a couple days earlier.
I was pretty sure the correct phrase was “hear hear” as opposed to the other variants I'd seen (“here here”,“hear here”,“here hear”) but I'd never actually looked it up. So I decided to check popular internet usage using Google:
“hear hear”= 1,740,000 hits
“here here”= 3,880,000 hits
“hear here”= 307,000 hits
“here hear”= 334,000 hits
Well dang. According to popular usage twice as many people say “here here” than say “hear hear”. But is that correct? Wikipedia says no:
Hear hear (Wikipedia):
…Hear, hear is an expression used as a short repeated form of hear ye and hear him. It represents a listener's agreement with the point being made by a speaker.
It was originally an imperative for directing attention to speakers, and has since been used, according to the Oxford English Dictionary, as “the regular form of cheering in the House of Commons”, with many purposes depending on the intonation of its user. It is often incorrectly spelled “here here”, especially on websites…
A quick double check of OneLook Dictionary Search confirms this. Six dictionaries list “hear hear” and only one lists “here here”(and that one happens to be the wiki article above.)
Popular usage drives the movement of meaning, though, so at some point in the future “here here” may end up being the correct phrase if we don't do something about it.
So if you want to avoid yet another English colloquialism that will have your great grandchildren scratching their heads and saying “WTF?”(or whatever kids will be saying in those days) then type “hear hear” at every opportunity.

lol! "Normal?" "Normal?"
lol! You are nuts son! I'd ask you to support this but I know you can't.
#842746 Jan 19, 2013
The plural of "crisis" is "crises", not crisis'
Quit before you prove to be completely ignorant, or at the very least uneducated.

That's your wish upon America and Americans to further conservative agendas.
In other words, it's simply your opinion.
And you can have a million of those. It doesn't magically turn them into facts by any stretch of the imagination!
#842748 Jan 19, 2013
lol! Correct dummy! And I didn't say he was son!
But it sure looks like he got it as a "reward", don't you think?
But thanks for not claiming they didn't help ol' bushie boy!
#842749 Jan 19, 2013
Just because a lot of ignorant fools on the internet agree with you does not justify your ignorance.
#842750 Jan 19, 2013
lol! And you are right again my boy! Nuts to you!
#842751 Jan 19, 2013
lol! You know something? The only thing you appear to be consistently correct on is spelling!
Isn't that something?

Your good buddy Barack forgot to revoke Executive Order 13132.
