It is obvious you add nothing to this thread. Well you do use a lot of words to say nothing. You particularly like use your large vocabulary when you post to "Carol". Here is an example of some of the gems you come up when offering a post to "Carol";
- Sure stoopid
- You're nitwit
- You an idiot, one of your favs, I'll only list it once, actually you used it 7 times
- You god damned liar
- You god damned liar
- Hate warped mind
- You clueless twit
- You damned liar
- You're so full of it
- Sure nitwit
- No nitwit, shut up
- Sure nitwit
- Sure dimwit
- You damned liar
- You lame brain
- Hey stoopid
- Nitwit
Why do you not, at least once in a while use your huge vocabulary to offer something of interest.
I do have a question, do you have a fixation on "Carol"?

Cool! So as a minority we can start cashing in on affirmative action and get special treatment now? All in the name of equality, right?

What is your point?
Casino Revenues fell when the recession hit bottoming out in 2009. Since they have been growing and are almost back to they were in early 2007 under the George W Bush administration.
So if you & your dumbf*ck buddy are arguing Obama's economy made people gamble then you are liars because statistics show the revenue is not more than under Bush.
But hey, the idea your dumbf*k buddy Galt used the example of a closed steel mill turned casino definitely meant he was blaming that change on Obama.
But hey. one thing I love about you right whiners, you make stupid, inaccurate uninformed posts & then run from them when you are proven wrong.
Liar! But, who's surprised at that?

a few years ago there was a letter circulating around the net about the red states divorcing the blue states.(funny how a map of those states looked just like the civil war secession...but that's another story...)

anyhoo, a guy i blogged with at the time put together a list of GDP for the blue states vs the red states and federal tax dollars produced by the two and such things.

it seems if they did divorce, the blue states would get the house, the kids, the cabin, the boat and the dog, and the red states would have to rent a room above the garage of their second cousin...

I hope his socialist visit sheds light on how the Conservatives have turned Wisconsin around.

What's so funny about Clinton admitting he lied just because he could and was ashamed about that?
Is it his close ties with the Bush's that you find so funny?
Or is my opinion that he's a closet Republican funny? Guess that could be considered amusing I suppose but not really funny because it's just my opinion.
So what's funny?
I'm beginning to wonder if you're insulated or isolated in some way from the outside world. Sure hope not. But it would explain a lot.
He shouldn't have lied about the BJ, he should have stayed away from Barbara Walters style interviews for a bit. Bill Clinton was a rogue and a womanizer while governor of Arkansas__the American voters knew that prior to choosing him over GHWB. and then choosing him again over Bob Dole.

He's a moderate doll,. That's a political place that exists between the right wing and left wing.
GHWB was also a moderate and the two teamed up after the presidencies on several projects__that surprises you for what reason?

George W Bush's daughter said the her grandad preferred hanging out with Bill Clinton over dad who was POTUS at the time. Can't really blame him__Jr was in deep shit and Clinton was having fun.

Probably saved money on secret service too!

I haven't had time to watch the stock market.

Did the Fed's announcement cause the great sell off yet??? It is nosediving as predicted by a certain unnamed poster?

You know like it did when they announced the first on at the end of December? That one was terrible!

No? What do you mean no?

OK, I talked to the first person I know personally that just got Obamacare.

- Didn't get insurance card until 1/21 (basically uninsured for 3 weeks)
- Told his doctor still in network
- Went to doctor and then told out of network
- needs to pay out of pocket $3,000 before coverage starts
- misled completely
- he said he will never vote Democrat again

Fox News contributor busted again for pushing fake story about persecution of Christians

Todd Starnes helped promote a story about a California first-grader who allegedly was not allowed to give a one-minute presentation about her family’s Christmas tradition because it included religious references.

As Right Wing Watch has reported, this is not the first time Starnes has been caught pushing poorly sourced stories claiming religious discrimination

The teacher denies telling the girl to sit down, instead allowing her to take one question from another student.

“At no time did I ever tell the student that she could not read the bottom section [of her statement] because it was a Bible verse nor did she ask if she could finish,” said teacher Tammy Williams.“I never told her to ‘Stop right there!’ or ‘Go take your seat!’ or reprimand her in front of the class for sharing from the Bible. It just did not happen.”

Paradise said she met with the following day with the girl’s parents, who were upset because they thought she was unable to finish her presentation because of its biblical content.

The principal said neither parent claimed bullying or humiliation by teachers, which she said was made up by the religious legal group, and she has not heard from the parents since presenting her findings about the incident Dec. 24 to the school board.

Paradise said she stood behind the teacher, and both she and Williams complained that Tyler and his group had misrepresented the incident and damaged their reputations.

What saddens me is that this story was twisted into lies and brought to the media,” Williams said.“I have never sat down and discussed this directly with the family or the student. I am instead being used to push an agenda for the Advocates for Faith and Freedom.”

We're all in the same boat whether on the starboard side or port side.
It also wouldn't hurt if we lived by GHW Bush's words and tried to be "a kinder, gentler nation" even in the midst of so much uncertainty and so many unknowns. It might come in handy as we face them together.
Hope I've been wrong the past five years. But don't think so.

Does this mean you took a pill? "kinder, gentler nation"? from you? the most hateful person on here? Oh this is rich.

so s/he is ungrateful that others are paying for any health care at all? obviously if he is on the exchanges, as you stated, she didnt have coverage before. so your BS about having a doctor before is just crap...

it is funny watching the stupid attempt to lie, you aren't smart enough to concoct a story that stands up to logical inspection.

The new invisible war on women in this election year is female income discrimination.
Women actually make 91 cents to the dollar compared to men. Obama's 77 cents has been a misrepresentation for a long time. But it's not true and has been debunked even by the liberal media.
Because women are more likely to work in lower-paying occupations and leave the workforce when they have children and men are more likely to work longer hours and work in labor unions, it's like comparing apples to oranges.
http://bangordailynews.com/2013/09/01/politic...
http://www.slate.com/articles/double_x/double...
But liberals will start another war on women because of 9 cents. Just to manipulate another election.
The slate article was nothing but an opinion piece while Obama's 77 cents was derived from actual verifiable data through the U.S. Census. The 77 cents is merely a representation of the "median earnings" of "full-time female workers" and "full-time male workers". Nothing more. The Slate article tries to make it something it is not by tossing in race, education, pay bonuses and the "option of choice"--- "that women just don’t want to work the same way men do". It's hooey. Heck, that 91 cents you referenced was based on her premise that "largely male professions tend to be higher-paying."

The writer of the article, Hanna Rosin, is a Republcian Jew who describes herself as "a rich white lady". She is a bit nuts....having written an article against breast feeding and saying "good riddance" when children's author Jan Berenstain died because she didn't like the Berenstain Bears series of books.

However, she is not a "radical" Republican. Quite the contrary. She is capable of acknowledging when the Republican party is going down the wrong path. After the 2012 election, she said "if you do retrospective analysis of the election, you’d see that the rape question and the extremists of the Republican Party really seemed to do a lot of damage. All of them lost, basically, and turning off women in that way turned out to be mistake, in retrospect. At the time, you wouldn’t necessarily know which way it would go, but in retrospect it turned out to be quite a critical mistake."
