You're right on target ThomD, she's completely lost it. Self Reflection Therapy isn't working for her. Back to the water therapy she goes with XTP. High water temperatures seem to relieve her maniac periods. And XTP....lost in space with no docking station in sight.

LSM? LAME stream media!
Nobody tells Cons how to vote. Beck and Hannity present their opinions, which we know are opinions, and then challenge listeners to look up the facts. They encourage self-education.
The LSM DOES tell people what to believe. They edit vids, interviews, and pics to show what they WANT perceived. They discourage self-education.
Hannity and Beck may be millionaires, but they are not billionaires. The most politically hyperactive billionaire, George Soros, recently "donated" sufficent funds to the CPB to hire 100 "reporters" to present "news": with his particular spin on events of the day, which would be pro-Socialism. Who manipulates the news?
The only socialism going on is your social security and government medicare that you all want. They are billionaires, Beck's radio contract is 450 million alone. Hannity made billions on deals Bush did which is why he is so full of rage that Bush is gone. They tell you do not look at any other news channels. This is really sick stuff.

Pamela thinking as you do then it appears that Obama is not the head of the Democratic Party, and he is not President. Obama reveres the European way of governing. Look at his coalition on Libya, he procrastinated until France and Briton took the lead. I have no idea how old you are, but I suspect far from the age to be on medicare or social security. You sound like a left wing loon who feel we need to rush the demise of seniors because they are taking too much from the system and you resent their existance. And besides they are too conservative and vote. Honey, you need a one on one with Ron Paul, soon thereafter you'll get the picture that what you are saying is way off base. Good luck on attaining a grasp on reality!
Your IQ is way too low for me to have to talk to you. You are doing European socialism by demanding the funding of 120 trillion dollars for social security and Medicare, and now matter how many times and ways I explain it to you, you cannot even understand what you are even doing. You are the typical really stupid, totally vulnerable, idiot, brainwashed by TV loon who wants all the socialism you can get your hands on, lies about it, has no clue you are even doing it, parrots all the insane BS from Beck, never reads one book and could not pass one college class and is somehow convinced that by looking at one nut on TV you are now so smart and you are so entitled to your socialism no matter what it costs but you hate socialism and you are so entitled to bash strangers who are not liberals and call them liberals. You are too dumb for me to have to talk to, and, every single Beck follower is an idiot, utter low IQ idiot. NOt one of them went to college, none of them have IQs even at 100, and none of them read books. This is the crap he attacts.

Pamela,

You woman, uh, Beck is much more a libertarian than you.

In fact, most liberals appear to be more libertarian than you.

Your thought on Soc. Sec. and Medicare are libertarian thinking, but for some of us, who have paid into each for our lifetimes by having that money confiscated from your paychecks, it's not socialism because it's something we've paid for.

Had those plans never been hatched it would have been contingent upon all of us to provide for retirement some other way.

We would have needed to secure medical coverage in our old age.
WE PAID FOR THE COVERAGES.

Now if you want to be a pure libertarian I recommned you turn down any MediCare coverage when you're elegible and turn down any Soc. Security when you're able to begin receiving what you were promised, but until that time happens, SHUT UP!!

Do you have any idea how stupid you sound? You all are pushing us to European socialism over the social security and medicare you want. Your country went under when Bush was in office for the rich, you have no clue and think Obama is going to take it down, no clue it already went under in Oct. of 2008 from the rich. You are told all is well and working here, capitalism is working just fine, not one bit true, it's a third world country with two percent having all of the money, not working for 98 percent of the population and all the economists know the U.S. can no longer do it's economy only for the rich the way it has done, that it crashed from it in 08 and is not coming back. We are number one in nothing. Europe is way ahead of us in everything. we are the only developed country without universal health care, you all want your government medicare then talk crap about no government health care, just for you, no one else. Then you all complain you can't afford to send your kids to college while everyone in Europe, China and India are going to college, we have 85 percent of our people not going to colleg and losing millions of jobs over it, and you think all is well, all was just fine with Bush. You all not only will force us to European socialism over your demands for your massive social programs, you desperately need to do so for higher education. This country is going under and you all will all be living in Europe soon, all of you. None of you are going to stay here with all your jobs being in China, no way to get a job, with no educations, with nothing here other than a majority race of Mexicans. You people want 2-3 government pensions to travel to Europe while you all claim you hate Europe, and all of you are going to end up living there when oil ends and because Bush took this country down for the rich, and, the only thing Glenn Beck has to do with any of this is that he is trying to make 3-4 billion dollars before oil ends so he can live well in Europe himself. That is all that is going on.

I am not aligned with Pamela or with socialism. And all the stuff you throw out about Obama is also just your own imagination, like we should believe you know the secrets no one else knows. The inside story. Right. Sometimes the inside story is just the outside story.

Obama isn't doing anything. He is not the problem. These people are all super low IQ nut cases parroting the stuff from Fox. I can't stand to have to look at it any longer. Obama isn't doing anything, isn't the problem, and they go no and on and on about him all over what television tells them to think.

This trend is simply unbelievable.

Blacks Flee Blue States in Droves

3-29-2011

The Census reported that waves of blue state blacks fled the stagnant job opportunities, high taxes and rotten social conditions of the mostly blue northern states to seek better lives for themselves in the south.

First, according to the Times, the Blacks leaving tend to be the “younger and better educated”. Second, the three states Blacks left in largest numbers don’t just include snake-bit Michigan; the other two are Illinois and New York.

Within those states, Chicago and the city of the New York (widely considered among the most successful cities in the country) are the places Blacks are deserting.

17 percent of the Black flight from Big Blue is from the Empire State; after almost a century of trailblazing social policy, New York State has succeeded in creating the most hostile environment for Blacks in the country.

It gets worse. Blacks across the North are fleeing the urban paradises of liberal legislation and high public union membership for the benighted suburbs. The Times interviewed a professor to get the straight scoop:

“The notion of the North and its cities as the promised land has been a powerful part of African-American life, culture and history, and now it all seems to be passing by,” said Clement Price, a professor of history at Rutgers-Newark.“The black urban experience has essentially lost its appeal with blacks in America.”[bold italics added]

I agree ThomD, she is another loony tunes, perched on a tree next to XTP. These two need to send tweets to one another. At the vary least share water therapy at the facility to help stabilize their incoherent moments and reduce Pammie's swollen head. XTP is getting bored with Marie's company and needs a bath friend.

You are full of it my dear. And Paroxetine may be of benefit to you reaching some level of calm due to your obsessive rants on Beck and twisted perceptions of Socialism, Libertarians, and Conservatism. Good luck on the journey to wellness. You are one wacko-doodle. And I thought XTP had that position solidified.

Yo Dingleberry,

The U.S. Census Bureau reports findings from the census that is taken every ten years.

Perhaps when you get into your teens you'll learn that in "whatever-the-hell-class- it-is, we are able to glean from the results of any exodus from and emmigration to another state(s).

If you took the time to read what I posted, or perhaps learned how to comprehend the written word you would have seen it is clear that this was reported by the New York Times - you know, that extreme far-left liberal rag.

And NO you did not miss any questions on the Census.

But those who answered other questions provide information on incomes rising and falling in certain areas.

When you grow up hopefully you'll understnad these things. Until then - STOP ACTING STUPID!

Tell me when this thread is updated:
