Well said! However, he'll never take you up on it. Red Baron falls in the same class as Hey Middle America, lab-rat, Omni, and a handfull of others on these forums. They are the really ignorant ones that the republican party relies to hold their fledgling party together. Through the likes of Rush, Sean, and Billy, the party spins their yarn to these folks, and being too stupid to question it, they fall for every line. They sit behind their computers all day (which makes me wonder if any of them have jobs) criticizing, name-calling, and belittleing anyone and everyone who doesn't share their warped view of reality. By the looks of their posts, none of them made it past the 6th grade.
Take this thread, for instance. They claim it's wrong for RR to wear a friggin' scarf that "resembles" that worn by muslim extremists (oooh! I'm shakin' in my boots!). Yet, to them, it's perfectly OK for the KKK (of which they are probably all members) to stand behind the American flag.
I think they all have anger management problems; they get more irate and irrational with every post they make. Just sit back and watch for a while; it really gets entertaining!
Wow, that was one of the most hateful personal attacks I've read in a while. Maybe irate, irrational and ignorant may apply to more than just the posters you listed above...

Oh really? You should have taken my advice the first time. The Republican party is doing just fine. It's the Democratic party that is coming apart like a cheap suit.
In just two years. Remember the election in 2006?
1. Consumer confidence stood at a 2 1/2 year high.
2. Regular gasoline sold for $2.19 a gallon
3. The unemployment rate was 4.5%.
Since voting in a Democratic majority House and Senate in 2006 we have seen:
1. Consumer confidence plummet.
2. The cost of regular gasoline soar to over $4.00 a gallon.
3) Unemployment is up to 5%(a 10% increase).
4) American households have seen $2.3 trillion in equity value evaporate (stock and mutual fund losses).
5) Americans have seen their home equity drop by $1.2 trillion dollars.
6) 1% of American homes are in foreclosure.
America voted for change in 2006, and we got it!
Remember it's Congress that makes and approves laws not the President. He has to work with what's handed to him. If you want more of this kind of "change" vote for Barack Lenin.
By the way, Dunkin Donuts removing their ad is not a violation of Free Speech nor did they do anything wrong. It was their wise choice. They could have left it running despite public outcry, but they are in the business to sell coffee. Not promote Islamic Jihadism.
You have NAILED IT! People need to go back to school if they think the pres is making all of this downfall. It truly is the democratic congress.

Our lives are going into the crapper because of the likes of hillary and osama-I mean bama---

Nice post! It at least shows some are awake!

<quoted text>Since you're so damned concerned about islamic jihads I will personally buy you a one-way ticket to Iraq or Afghanistan (your choice) so you can fight the terrorists head on and leave the rest of us alone with your insane paranoid rants that are now directed at articles of clothing worn in coffee commercials.
What a f-in' loser.
While I'm too old to be accepted to fight in Iraq or Afghanistan, I make a good living, and consequently a great deal of my money is taken from me in taxes. While I would rather use that money to buy toys and stuff for my family, I proudly pay it to fund our troops.

Not everyone can be the football team, the team also needs sponsors to make them viable.

What is it that YOU do for America? Besides tear her down.
what a surprise

Michelle Malkin has the nerve to call Rachael Ray a terrorist when she herself has ties to the white supremacist group VDARE.

Wasn't Timothy McVeigh a white supremacist? Lock her up in Gitmo and throw away the key! This is who Dunkin' Donuts caved in to! Shame on You DD!

I know nothing about VDARE except what I read here:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VDARE

Is this accurate? I'm still looking for what is wrong with them.
