Cyprus Merkel

  • At least the Cypriots have Russia.

  • But Rubles are hard to change into Euros. Maybe Cyprus should split up, half going to Greece and half to Turkey. The copper mines gave out what, 2000 years ago?

    And now…. The REAL Cartoon of the Day!

    Have a nice day!

    “The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency…Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president.” – Czech Republic newspaper Prager Zeitung

      We get it that you don’t like Barack Obama, OMG. But the majority of the people who voted did like him. So now everyone who voted for him is a fool. You’re so full of negativity. Tell us who you would like in the presidency. Be positive for a few seconds, and tell us who was a better candidate — and why. The only thing black here is you outlook for our country. Even fools didn’t like Mitt.
      What incredibly outstanding insight into our politics does the writer from Prager Zeitung have that hardly anyone here has — other than you and a few dozen others.
      Have a great day, OMG!

      • ObozoMustGo

        Hello Metro! I hope you are well today. To answer your question, anyone who is NOT a leftist freak progressive intent on undermining American values and tradition (impossible to find in the DemonRAT party any more) would have been a better President. And by the way, just to let you know, Obozo won the 2nd time around with 4 million FEWER votes and a more narrow majority. Here’s the facts from wiki answers:

        > Returns for the 2012 presidential election showed President Obama was re-elected with 65,899,660 (51%); his challenger Mitt Romney received 60,932,152 (47.2%).

        > In the popular vote, Barack Obama received 69,498,516 votes in the 2008 presidential election (52.93%). McCain recieved 58,343,671 Popular Votes (46%) of the total vote.

        Obozo LOST 4 Million votes from ’08 to ’12. This is not a mandate for fundamental transformation of America. As well, you all on the left seem to forget that the Republicans KEPT CONTROL of the House by a large margin. Also, post mortem on Romney voter turnout compared with the November 2010 Republican white-washing revealed that somewhere between 5 to 8 million conservative voters did NOT even show up to vote in ’12 that did show up in ’10. Romney got his a$$ kicked in the ground game, but it’s also true that Obozo did worse in this election than in the prior, and thus it’s fair to say that most Americans are clearly in favor of gridlock. Thankfully!

        Regarding the Czech paper… I like how you resort to criticizing the source, and not the statement. The fact is that such a quote is being made by people who recognize what Obozo is doing/trying to do to America because they lived underneath Socialist/Communist rule for decades. They know it when they see it. It can be argued that such experience has given them a uniquely qualified position from which to comment. Moreso than many Americans who clamour for more government and socialist policies and programs who have NEVER known what it’s really like to live under such a government. These are the morons that buy the class warfare pitches and the “fair share” propaganda.

        Have a great day, my friend!

          As I said earlier go crawl back into your cave because President Obama won’t be leaving the White House until January 2017 when his term as President is over. If the President lost votes it was because people died, weren’t able to the Picture IDS in time to vote that Republican controlled state governments insisted they have in less than 6 months before the election, or got marked off the voting books on purpose and didn’t know it until they went to vote or like a man in Georgia who didn’t get to vote because his Picture ID was taken by someone else while he was in the hospital undergoing tests during the first week of GA’s early voting period and used it to vote. When he went to vote early he was told he had already voted when he hadn’t so he couldn’t vote.
          People like you that don’t believe that there is class warfare isn’t going on are the morons.

        • metrognome3830

          As your hero, Ronald “The Great Communicator” said, “There you go again.” Quoting numbers that are essentially meaningless. The end result was that Obama won, Romney did not. If it makes you feel better to note that Obama got fewer votes than he did in 2008, that’s fine with me. You know I am only concerned with your happiness and well-being :-). I have no trouble admitting that Obama lost some votes. There were a number of people who were disenchanted with him after the first four years. Some of us did not really favor him as the candidate in 2008 and are not entirely pleased with him now. There are still people out here among the masses that believe they are making a point of their displeasure by not voting for anyone. I said nothing about the house, but I have said in the past, the House members only run in their district. If they are from a conservative district they will get re-elected over and over again. Especially if their party is successful at gerrymandering the districts. Michelle Bachmann got re-elected several times, and may again, although her last win was very close. But, still a win. Republican voters did not show up? Why not? Maybe they didn’t like their candidate. Do you really think gridlock is a favorable situation?
          You know, OMG, I don’t know why I argue these points with you. If the Republicans get control they will repeal the ACA, they will cut Medicare and Medicaid, Republican governors will continue their campaign to destroy a unionized work force, and on and on. Ryan’s plan will not affect me. It will affect people 54 and under. I believe you fall in that category. So, if I were a cruel, callous person, why should I worry what happens. I will be on the underside of the grass by the time you hit retirement. I’m only 4 years younger than your father. They will be building up a strong military — not to protect you, but to keep you from escaping to somewhere like Czechoslovakia. I read an interesting article by Jonathan Turley today, in which he opines that Nixon actually won at Watergate because he set the stage for an imperial presidency and Obama is doing what Nixon wanted to do. So what are your thoughts on that? It’s all Nixon’s fault. And (top secret information) he is the only Republican presidential candidate I ever voted for. And if you try to use that against me, I will deny it.
          Have a relaxing evening, OMG!
          On my travels through Eastern Europe I will check out some allegedly ex-socialist countries for you. 🙂

    • Barbara Morgan

      You sure do like posting trash printed by a News Paper that was the voice of the Commies when they were in charge of Eastern Europe, so you must be a commie.
      The only fool is you and the things you post. Don’t you think it is time to crawl back in your cave because the President will not be going out of office until January 2017 when his term of office is over.

    • Sand_Cat

      Gee, I’d hoped you finally realized how insane and bigoted all your nonsensical rants made you look and left us for good.

    • And you call your president a communist but you quote communistic propaganda aimed at America and Americans? Does your parole officer know you’re on a computer? Sex offenders should not be allowed to use computers.

      • ObozoMustGo

        Robbie, Obozo IS a communist and was a member of the Communist Party USA in the early and mid 90s. He was wholeheartedly endorsed by the CPUSA in both election runs. He was raised by a communist mother and mentored by a communist Frank Marshal Davis. He speaks in Marxist rhetoric stoking class warfare, “the rich don’t pay their fair share” kind of garbage. What the hell else do you need to see before you believe that Obozo’s ideological leanings are socialist/communist in nature? Read the quote below. It’s Obozo in his own words speaking like he’s reading the Communist Manifesto. He can’t completely execute his dictatorial desires because of our Constitution and the Congress, but he’s doing EVERYTHING in his power to skirt that Constitution and the Congress.

        Have a nice day!

        “Individual actions, individual dreams, are not sufficient. We must unite in collective action, build collective institutions and organizations.” ~ Barrack Hussein Obozo in a 1995 interview with a leftist Chicago journal

        • But, what you quoted was reworded from the Declaration of Independence, Bozo. That’s not communist talk. When you say “collective” it speaks of “all”, not one or a few, but “all”. I completely agree with our president. You have to understand, Bozo, a president is only as good as his powers to persuade. He has to sell his proposals to Congress to get anything passed, and if Congress doesn’t agree, or is vehemently against the president, we get what we are getting now: an inept government that is stagnant. Nothing President Obama does is good enough for the bozos in Congress, the Republican/Tea Bag terrorists. They’ve been sitting on the Jobs Bill since 2010, and allowed the economy to go into sequestration than to work with their president to help America to recover from the Bush/Cheney terrorism. If you have an ounce of intelligence, you should know that, but, unfortunately, you don’t. You have no brains or heart because you are of the undead, a zombie who has had his brains consumed and his heart drained of blood by Republican/Tea Bag zombies. You’re one of the walking dead, looking for someone else’s brains to consume with a big-gulp helping of fresh blood.

          Happy Easter, OMG, and to Ms. OMG and the kids as well.

          I think it will still be safe to celebrate Easter year. Before the “Evil DemonRAT Socialists” ban it. I know all Republicans are deeply religious and I, personally hope you will be allowed to continue being so. By the same token, I am hoping in return, they will allow me and my ilk to continue to practice our Agnosticism or even Atheism or worship a sacred rock, or whatever. And be gay or straight or asexual. But most of all, I hope you will be able to open your heart to those of us who are less than perfect and don’t believe that words like “collective” are strictly Socialist/Communist key words that surely indicate that we will be under Marxist Socialist rule by next Easter. Perhaps I should give up using the world “collective” for Lent next year. When we were good little parochial school kids, we gave up candy for lent, but now I have to give it up because of Diabetes. Out of curiosity, what was the “leftist” Chicago Journal you cite? Perhaps they should be warned to take the word “collective” out of their stylebook. It’s become a dead giveaway. OK, enough of this.
          But I’d like to ask you, OMG, were you this concerned when Richard Nixon was trying to establish an “Imperial Presidency?” No, of course not, you were just a little kid then. Or what did you think when the aptly named Dick Cheney was suggesting that the 2004 presidential election be canceled because we were in the middle of a war? (He was just joking, of course! wink, wink, nudge nudge). I didn’t think he was joking, but I certainly didn’t take him seriously either. We have what we have, OMG, and unless Obama steps way over the line a la Nixon, that’s what we will have until the next election.
          Once again, Happy Easter!

          • ObozoMustGo

            Sorry for late reply, Metro. I’ve been traveling for business and been too busy trying to make a living. Happy Easter to you as well. By the way, not all conservatives are relgious. That’s a cartoon made up by leftist freaks to demonize the opposition. It does so happen that many people who are religious are also conservative, by their nature, but the converse is not true. You should know that.

            Yes, I was a kid when Nixon was around. All he did was try to cover-up theft of campaign information, and would have been impeached if he did not resign. He deserved to be impeached. Contrast that to Clinton lying to a jury in a court of law and then suborning perjury of others to cover his tracks, and he was caught. He was impeached, as he should have been, but the Senate was too feckless to follow through. And if the media was not in the tank for Obozo as deep as they are, he would be impeached and tried for treason for supplying arms to our sworn terrorist enemies and radical jihadists in Libya and Syria, and then covering up the consequences of botched deals in the Benghazi attack. He would be impeached for violation of his oath of office to obey and uphold the Constitution, which he defies every day. He would be impeached for being a serial liar on EVERY single issue that comes from his pie hole. He should be impeached. But, you are right, Metro. We are stuck with him because the other politicians, with minor exception, are pieces of garbage just like he is.

            Have a great day, my friend. Pass my regards to Mrs. Metro please.
