Smart. Sharp. Funny. Fearless.
Tuesday, September 27, 2016

In a campaign-like event, Governor Rick Perry (R-TX) has announced that he will not seek another term as governor of Texas.

“The time has come to pass on the mantle of leadership,” he said, speaking at San Antonio’s Holt Cat Caterpillar dealership.

The governor was introduced by his wife Anita, who reminisced about how the native son of Paint Creek, Texas “wore her down” into marriage.

Perry’s speech focused on summarizing the success of Texas’ economy — which he said leads the nation in job creation, even though it technically doesn’t — and congratulating himself for defending the “freedom” from the federal government that he insists made it possible. He took office in 2001 after George W. Bush was elected president, and then won his own terms in 2002, 2006 and 2010.

The governor also nodded several times to the ongoing crisis surrounding Republican efforts to impose more abortion restrictions in the state. He vowed that he would call for another special session if the current one designed to enact a 20-week ban on abortions and new restrictions on clinics that offer abortions does not succeed.

Perry has waged a war on family planning and Planned Parenthood in Texas, which has created a dire situation for poor women seeking basic health care.

State senator Wendy Davis (D-Fort Worth), the woman whose filibuster led to the special session, has expressed an interest in seeking statewide office. A recent poll showed Perry leading her by double digits.

The Texas Tribune reports that Attorney General Greg Abbott is the “instant favorite” to replace Perry.

The governor made no announcements about what he would do after his term ends, but he did leave the door open to another presidential run, saying his decision on that would come in “due time.”

Perry’s “oops” moment in a 2011 debate, when for nearly a minute he couldn’t name the third cabinet-level department he would eliminate, will go down in history as one of the greatest flubs by a major-party candidate ever.

Perry said he was leaving his office with a “deep sense of humility and appreciation.”

    He’s gotten much smarter in the last few days. Perhaps he does indeed understand polls. I hope Texas corrects the mistake they’ve made with this guy. Someone who can govern from the middle would be nice, but I won’t hold my breath.

    • neeceoooo

      It is Texas, however.

  • Peter Brown

    Nice to see him leave with humility, he should be humble. It is truly time that Texas move away from whack job politicians like Bush and Perry and get serious about the real world or the world of the real. Abortion may not be the key issue, I think sanity is, but if his stance on tose topics get him ousted, then so be it.

    • edwardw69

      Why not just replace Texas? Or more accurately, displace? As in– out of the Union, and take Alabama, Mississippi, Arkansas and Louisiana with them. Hasta la vista, baby.

      • bikejedi

        If that were to happen every hard working productive American would move there and then who would pay for the taxes for your expansion of Socialism and Entitlements ? Who would pay for all the Illegal Aliens the Dems are pandering to and that are costing Americans Billions ??? Be careful what you wish for .

          You’re very much a person that knows what he thinks.
          Aren’t you? You do remind me of Rick Perry. Except he
          knows better. Which makes him a rotten Son of a Bitch.
          You’re being wrong, just makes you wrong. Doesn’t
          result in people in people harmed. Perry knows, innocent
          people will be harmed unnecessarily by his decision.
          One he didn’t need to make. He can explain himself to God.

          “When you compare the 50 laboratories of democracy after sorting them based on how their citizens voted in November 2008, only 10 Democratic-voting states are net recipients of federal subsidies, as opposed to 22 Republican states.”

          FACT, look it up! Now that we cleared that up, are there no women in Texas? Do Texas women not care about their own bodies? Are they content to be barefoot and pregnant? PLEASE will ANY female Texan enlighten me? Why do you allow your men to make choices for you? Why won’t you stand up, and be counted? Or do you let guys like bikejedi speak for you? All I can say is,…..WOW!

          • jmprint

            Trust me there are a lot of women in Texas that stand up for their rights, but it is very hard when the religious groupies, (that’s where the monies are) fight against us. Why do you think gambling hasn’t been approved yet, those southern baptist work harder in politics then they do on preaching.

          • GreginPottsville

            And who looks out for the 30 week old baby in the womb?

          • jmprint

            If you want to be the keeper of every unwanted child then apply for it, raise them as your own, feed the many that are already in in states custody, but quit trying to manipulate womens health care and decisions.

          • GreginPottsville

            Strange how you feel abortion affects only women.
            My uncle was an orphan. Abortion was illegal when he was born some 80 years ago. He became a successful businessman and philanthropist out in the Las Vegas area. Shook hands with Sinatra and Ali. Great life. He was taken in, as unwanted as he was, and is very grateful for that. Perhaps you figure it would have been better off just to kill him in the womb. I think he would disagree.

          • jmprint

            That would have be his mother’s choice, not mine nor yours.
            Not everyone is so lucky. Did you see the dead baby in the trash can. He wasn’t so lucky.

          • GreginPottsville

            Can you imagine what 333,000 babies aborted in one year by Planned Parenthood would look like? Would need more than a few trash cans.

          • Mikey7a

            Would be no baby if you morons allowed sex education in schools, and birth control! Who looks after the same baby once it is born? Certainly not you Tea Baggers!

          • GreginPottsville

            Since when is sex education not allowed in schools? When was birth control banned? Am I missing something here?

          • Russell Byrd

            Not for any want of trying by maggots like you!

            What you are missing is honesty and coherency.

          • idamag

            Damn straight! In Sweden boys who get girls pregnant are ostracized. Hence very little teen pregnancies and no need for abortion among teens.

          • bikejedi

            Who do you think is paying the Taxes that support all of that spending ….Dems on welfare ?????

        • Russell Byrd

          It never has. But it has bought a lot of rich man propaganda selling those ideas to the weak minded.

        • Independent1

          Let’s see “Obama’s expansion of Poverty -blah blah blah. Wow!! Is that why out of the 23 states have have more than 15% of their residents living in poverty, 21 of the are run by GOP idiots??? Yup! The GOP idiots will balance their budgets any way they can – even if it’s on the backs of their own residents – put them into bankruptcy and poverty – serves them right – we absolutely have to have this idiot balanced budget – if you can eat because of it — too darn bad!! What an idiot you are!!! And not only that, but of the 17 states that get less federal aid back than they send to Washington in income tax returns 14 of them, that’s 14 of them are run by the Democrats – only 3 red states don’t suck more federal aid than they send to Washington – and of the 10 that ket more than $1.75 back in federal aid for each tax dollar – 8 of them big welfare sucking states are RED STATES!!! And of the 10 states that not only send the most tax dollars to Washington but also get the least welfare for the tax dollars the pay ALL OF THEM ARE BLUE STATES!!!

          You probably don’t want to see just how bad a ‘True’ red state can look when it’s been run like a business sucking machine for about 20 years?? But I’ll show you anyway- here’s some comparisons that show how a guy like Rick Perry can make a red state look like the cesspool of America:

          Texas is 49th in the country in tax revenues collected per capita and 50th in revenues spent.
          Texas is 44th in tax progressivity, which means it collects most of its taxes from working people and it comes in 50th in the percent of its population that have a HS diploma.
          Texas ranks 46th in the overall SAT scores it’s students get on entrance exams; and 49th in what it pays its teachers.
          Texas ranks dead last (50th) in having the most people without health insurance and also dead last in the number of children covered by insurance.
          Texas 49th in the support it provides to women & children in the WIC program, and it leads the nation in teenage births.
          Texas ranks 6th in the nation in the number of people living in poverty and 50th with regard to the affordability of homeowners insurance.
          Texas ranks 45th in the overall health of its population and 47th with respect to mental health.
          The quality of the highways in Texas is ranked 42nd and its parks and recreation facilities are ranked 48th and environmental protection 46th
          Police protection in Texas is ranked 49th and government administration 50th.
          Texas comes in 3rd in the nation in the number of public officials that are convicted for a crime; while being dead last in the percent of voters who turn out for elections.
          Texas is 46th in the hourly earnings of its workers and 48th in the payout of worker’s comp benefits.
          And last but not least Texas ranks as having the most polluted environment in the nation due to its many oil spills and all the oil refineries and coal powered power plants spewing toxic fumes..

          • bikejedi

            How long did it take you to make up all those lies and false statistics ? For your first one you say Texas is 49th in taxes collected that is a good thing it means they don’t need to rape their citizens like they do in Chicago …might be why Texas is growing jibs and Illinois is venting them …thanks for making my point . and please lets not even try to compare crime in Texas as compared to Dem States K …I cant even have a conversation with you . the examples and analogies you cite have no relevance to the topic ..so long

        • Independent1

          Would you believe it, I forgot to mention food stamps – how foolish of me. Of the the 10 states that use the most food stamps – 6 of them are red states and 4 are blue states. But low population red states use by far the most food stamps on average such that more than 70% of food stamp users are residents of red states. And a big reason for that is once again idion Red State legislators balancing their budgets, intentionally cutting state subsistence programs and they purposely go out and teach THEIR RED STATE RESIDENTS how to fill out welfare and food stamp programs -PURPOSELY WANTING THEM TO SUCK FEDERAL WELFARE DOLLARS. ISN’T THAT JUST GREAT!!! Let’s teach our residents how to suck food stamps from the federal government so we can balance these mean old budgets – what a bunch of a–holes!!!!!!!!!

        • stcroixcarp

          Actually, Illinois and California are much better places for the average person to live. The state isn’t in your bedroom or inside your body.

          • bikejedi

            I live in Chicago and trust me if they can tax you they will be in your bedroom . The Average person in the Private sector is viewed as a working serf by the ruling elite Dems ..Your only purpose to them is to serve as Revenue meat to feed the ruling class and their favored friends and relatives in the Public Unions

        • Allan Richardson

          Of course, you define “every hard working American” as being only those people who agree with you … and counting as “hard working” those who inherited, or stole, enough that they no longer have to work at all, other than “working” at playing.

          And Illinois and California are in much better shape than any “red” states where Ayn Rand selfishness is the norm. Texas is as good as it is primarily because of (1) its size, (2) companies headquartered there such as AT&T that make their PROFITS selling to people in ALL states, and (3) military and government installations such as Lackland AFB and the Johnson Space Center (where the phones would be ringing constantly, if people thought it would help, with calls from all over Texas saying “Houston, we have a problem.”). Otherwise it would be down there with Mississippi (motto: State With the Most Double Letters) and Alabama (motto: We bought all our vowels at Sam’s Club, but all they had were A’s!).

          • Independent1

            Alan, actually, in every measure other than the creation of jobs, low-paying, just above the poverty level jobs; despite all the positives you mentioned, Texas ranks in the bottom 5 on every conceivable social/economic/police protection, etc measure you can come up with – including being rated as having the most polluted environment in America. Rick Perry has turned Texas into the cesspool of America. (I listed for bikejedi in a comment below all the measures by which Texas FAILS BADLY.)

          • Allan Richardson

            It took me a while to find that list (you must sort them newest first, so your “below” is my “above”) and I agree with them. As you may have noticed, I used the phrase “as good as it is” to mean that I was sarcastically listing the FEW areas in which Texas has been blessed. And two of them are fueled by federal money!

            On the topic of competence, by the way, I commented on an article on ZDNet regarding a Russian floating nuclear power plant proposal, that I am not sure which would be worse, Russia or Texas, in terms of safety. Remember the West!

          Yea right! That’s why the middle class is disappearing?

          • GreginPottsville

            President Obama is making sure the middle class disappears. He only caters to the ultra-rich and those who want to or have too rely on government. No middle class = communism! His dream.

          • jmprint

            No Greg it’s not President Obama, the reason he got elected is because of people in the middle class voted for him. The only communism rhetoric is your, trying to tell women what and when do do what you want.

          • GreginPottsville

            No, actually the food stamp class voted him in. Why do you think he expanded the program so much?
            I never tried to tell any women “what and when do do what you want”, whatever the heck you meant by that.

          • jmprint

            No, actually the majority on food stamps don’t vote. What you don’t understand is the real reason women go to these clinics, so you feel you are doing God’s job. In the end God will be the judge. It’s a very hard decision a women has to make. When have you ever seen a waiting line of women waiting to have abortions that you have to label the clinics “abortion factory”, You are just repeating what other people tell you. You sir are clueless.

          • GreginPottsville

            If you think food stamps had nothing to do with Obama’s re-election, you sir are the clueless one.

            From 2011 to 2012, planned parenthood boasts of a “record year” for abortions. 333,964. Great year! Wonder how many of those 333,964 souls would have chosen life if given the chance? I do.

          • bikejedi

            The reason the middle class is shrinking is they are losing full time jobs as companies gear up for Obamacare . We now have only about 47% of Americans with a full time job . In the age of Obamanomics no one wants to hire a full time employee anymore . Couple that with Obama’s expansion of the poor and those on entitlements and you can see why the Middle class is disappearing and why . You can also see why income disparity is growing between the Rich and the Poor ….Obama is so good at making more people dependent on entitlements ….So in essence we agree ….

          • GreginPottsville

            Makes perfect sense. I see it every day. I live it. It comes up in our meetings all the time. How are we going to deal with Obamacare? Are we going to have to shrink our labor force, and cut growth, just to survive? Or do we just comply, and not grow at all? These are the every day decisions going on with small companies that liberals don’t even want to know about, let alone respond to. And as you say, making more people dependent on entitlements. Americans on disability has skyrocketed since Obama took office. Has America become so dangerous now to live in that disabilities are skyrocketing? Or is it maybe get as many people into the welfare state (under gov’t control) as possible? (Just a side note, my wife is an advocate for people with disabilities, so before the haters start spewing, I wanted people to know that).

          • bikejedi

            Wait until the few Liberals who work in the Private sector or actually own their own businesses figure this out .they will either be asking ( and probably getting exemptions ) or offshoring their whole companies …for the employees wait until they see how affordable this is going to be …Of course this is why Obama delayed it for his friends in big business and wall street but nit fir the common man ……he didn’t want to lose every Dem seat in the midterms

            That is one of the most spacious lies I have ever heard. The crash, remember happened during Bush’s watch. Obamacare was not even proposed.

            You spew these lies, because it makes you “seem” knowledgeable. Unfortunately, this tactic has been used by the right-wing so often, anyone with common decency and a brain, automatically disbelieves you. LIAR, LIAR, LIAR, TROLL.

          • bikejedi

            The crash happened because Banks were told to write bad loans to people who hadn’t a clue nor prayer of ever being able to pay those loans back . That was Jimmy Carters doing . It was called the Community Reinvestment Act and it was the cause of the bad debt the banks held ..Only someone who doesn’t understand cause and effect would use the Liberal Lie and talking point that because it fell apart in the last year of Bush that it was his fault but feel free to repeat that and make yourself look like someone who doesn’t understand logic . The Obamacare stuff is what is happening now ….See how they delayed it ????? Liar Liar youre a Troll on fire

          • idamag

            Again, you have only rhetoric. The banks were making illegal loans. They were speculating with depositor monies that began when they eliminated the Galls-Steagal act that protected people from that fraud. They were actually betting with depositor money on who would default and who would not. Then they were bailed out at .interest. Be nice if a college student could get a loan for .75 interest.

          • bikejedi

            No what I posted was fact and what you did is speculation . You don’t have a grasp of the way banks work . 1 they aren’t in business to do stupid things that cause them to hold bad debt . No bank would want to do that . They have shareholders to answer to and under normal circumstances would not write loans to people who haven’t a prayer of ever paying them back . 2 That whole sub prime thing was Govt driven and the fact that Janet Reno had to threaten the banks to keep doing these bad practices perfectly displays to anyone with commons sense who was to blame and why . When Banks write loans they are always gambling with other depositors money and also with that banks own investment profits . Its when the Govt changes the rules and forces banks to originate loans to people that would not qualify for these loans under normal circumstances that you have that problem . Of course the Dems were trying to do some Social Engineering trying to use the Banks money to get poor people houses they weren’t qualified for in the name of gaining voters . If anyone was using other peoples money for their own ends it was they who wrote the Community reinvestment act ( that was Carter ) By the way , while it may have been a noble goal it was the way that it was implemented that was wrong . The Govt should have made a pool of mortgages themselves instead of forcing banks to do something no bank would normally do . To further illustrate that you don’t understand banking or the reasons for that collapse….. you don’t even know the proper name of the act Clinton repealed . That act would be the Glass Steagal act it was designed to prevent Commercial Banks ( where you go for a checking acct / loan ) from merging their products and services with Investment banks ( where you go for a retirement plan or stock portfolio ) It had nothing to do with protecting people from fraud .When Clinton repealed that act it allowed Investment banks to come up with the derivative market and trunks . These investment tools also led them to start to carry bad debt in no time at all . By the way I am not suggesting that some unscrupulous investors didn’t make obscene profits during this era . Nor am I suggesting that was right . I am suggesting they were living and investing in an era where the Govt made some very bad rules to follow so they share the blame in that Before you try to debate me maybe you should refer yourself to the uber Liberal NY Times article of 9/30 /99 that predicted that whole meltdown and spelled out the reasons it would happen . They mirror the facts and reasons that I presented and this was 9 years before the collapse …argue with the Liberals at the NY Times and learn about banking and we can have a legitimate discussion . By the way I’m not saying you are ignorant or trying to intone that . I just think your debate should be with the Liberal NY Times who called it 9 years before it happened . It was one of the best breakdowns and predictions ever done and as I said it was done by Liberals …Kudos to them

          • Russell Byrd

            If every entitlement were to disappear tomorrow and everyone of those you claim are too lazy to work, wanted a job, what would happen? Nothing. Intelligent people know that. Obama is not encouraging people to use entitlements. The increase in entitlements is due to so many people having nothing else to live on. AND history has taught, like France and Russia, just for starters, that this prevents the revolution that would destroy that corruption (the “system”) that you are so proud of.

            Until you can provide those jobs for these people, your opinion is irrelevant. We got this way by letting your heroes do as they pleased. Which was just to use us to make an obscene stack of cash. No patriotism, no morality, no fair play, no fair trade, no citizen’s rights in capitalism, just make all the money you can.

          • bikejedi

            Some good thoughts …however it is not my job and it shouldn’t be Govt.s job to supply jobs for people . The Govt should concentrate on making a viable business situation so businesses can strive …If you want Govt to supply a job you want a Communist Country …so far we are still a Representative Republic but the left and Obama seem to want to change that ..Instead I would suggest why not just move to a Communist Country ?

          Trust me I know more Texas women then you do and they don’t feel the way that the Liberal agenda/ rhetoric is driving

          • Russell Byrd

            Now that was a stupid, arrogant thing to say. Even if Texas women believe that way, that says very little good about the Texas educational system and economic opportunities in that “paradise” you are so fond of. More like Pairadice, because the Texas economy is a gamble.

            As a man, if you are one, you exhibit some of the traits that make intelligent, educated, working women hate us. You obviously do not listen, you hear what you want to hear, and you confuse that what makes you happy is not necessarily appreciated by a woman. That includes a woman that unfortunately has no choice but to be stuck with you. In short, arrogance and ego do not make you able to understand the world around you, nor does it make you well thought of.

            And you can leave off references to your “prowess.” I can sort of guess the lack thereof and your saying it would only prove my point.

          • bikejedi

            WTH are you talking about ? What arrogance , what ego ? Can you even read ? All I said was I know more Texas women then you …didn’t say I was banging them . You confuse what you think and put it on to me …..in that you are just well stupid . By the way most of the women I’ve been with would gladly do it again . I am still dear friends with most of the women I have been with and we still share great friendships and affection …What happened to you …bitter divorce ..wife cheat on you and clean you out in the divorce ?…Man you need to get a grip and stop transposing your imagination on a comment that was nothing what YOU put on it …Please don’t put your imagination on to me . I said nothing of the sort and only you would think that way…it must be the way you think and treat women and maybe that is why your description of how women would feel about that was so spot on …Probably because that is what you have experienced …I have adult relationships I have experienced nothing like that .

          • Russell Byrd

            Thanks for proving my point, dips**t. Your reply, and your entire platform, is based on arrogance, ego, ignorance, and lies.

            I did not even read after the first couple of lines. And I never said anything about “banging.” I can respond over the top, but I am not hatefully crude to people that have not offended, like you.

            A pointer: Making a spacious and vacuous statement like “I know more Texas women than you,” is nothing if not pure arrogance and ego. How do you know I do not live in that Texas trailer park I predict you will wind up in? Hmmm?

            Trolling not so much fun now? Losing the old temper, are we?

Your gang of criminals have brought our entire government to a standstill. YOU hate Democracy. Do not deny that. A lover of Democracy would want to negotiate, because the PEOPLE HAVE SPOKEN. But not you criminals.

          • Russell Byrd

            And you are losing your temper. I have only told the truth, to which, as I have said, you have a near fatal allergy to.

            I name call because you will not quit LYING. I realize that you want to force your narrow, bigoted beliefs on others, but you just cannot do it here. SORRY, about your rotten luck.

            As far as the race card you scumbags go on endlessly about: If you talk racist, write racist, act racist, propose to treat minorities with racism, THEN regardless of how you want too try to rationalize your behavior, YOU WILL BE SEEN AS A RACIST. Really, I challenge you: Start playing for the American team, not worshiping your perverted false gods, the rich and corrupt!

      • terry b

        Are you kidding? Obama protects a woman’s right to choose. Perry wants to strip them of that right. He is against one of the finest non profit organizations in the country that protects women’s health (planned Parenthood). The man in a pure fascist and needs to be replaced by someone who uses logic and common sense in forming their beliefs. The man reminds me too much of Hitler as does much of the republican leadership.

        • Eleanore Whitaker

          Terry B…pathetic isn’t it? How some men in the US will do anything to remain Numero Uno and play their “games” that keep women under their feet? Too bad women comprise 52% of the population…oh gee….that must mean 2% more women than men pay taxes doesn’t it? That must then also mean that 2% edge gives us more voice in government than men…Now won’t that rile the hinnies of the Testosteronies out there with bull heads?

          • bikejedi

            Most women don’t view abortion as their number one two or three priority . Their biggest concern is the economy and jobs . To that end under Obama women and blacks have fared the worse in terms of employment and income equality . Women staffer in the Obama regime are paid on an average 14 to 18 % lower then their male counterparts . This is especially appalling when you look at Barbara Boxer and Nancy Pelosi to leading Dems who pay their female staffers about 18% then their male staffers . There’s your real war on women. Most intelligent women are responsible and independent enough to take care of their life style choices . The only people who disagree with intelligent independent women are Liberals who think this group is incapable of taking care of themselves and force a rhetoric that say they cant take care of themselves

          Planned Parenthood, the abortion factory?

          • jmprint

            Are you a women? Or just a wanna be. Planned Parenthood has helped a lot of women, not just for abortions. Keep you dick in you pocket and out of your mouth.

          • GreginPottsville

            The vast majority of Planned Parenthood “services” are abortions. Not sure why you are concerned about my penis. Must be a liberal thing.

          • jmprint

            Not true Greg. It’s a small percentage, but your non liberal mine does not use the head on it’s shoulders to think.

          • GreginPottsville

            I guess 333,000 babies killed in the womb in a year is “small” to you. Planned Parenthood was proud enought to call it a “record year”. Would 500,000 be better? Would 1,000,000 make you really proud?

          • Independent1

            Guess what Greg, if abortions were banned, very few of those 333,000 fetuses would have been saved. But without a clinic designed to provide abortions, I can guarantee that far more of the women who had those abortions would now be dead. I know, because I can remember before Roe vs Wade, when news articles about women being found dead in back alleys, warehouses, filthy quack abortion facilities were commonplace back in the late 40s and 50s, being in the papers several times a week. It’s only idiots like yourself who are so stupid as to believe that banning abortions is going to stop them.

            Is the fact that POT is banned most everywhere stopped idiots looking for a high from smoking it? Did banning booze back in the 1920s stop people from finding a place to drink? Is the fact that virtually all hard drugs are illegal stopped people from using them? Of course not, and you have to be pretty stupid to believe that the desire for a booze or drug induced high is anystronger than the determination a woman who has gotten pregnant and doesn’t feel she’s in a position for a baby would have for aborting that baby. The women who can pay to travel will simply go to another state or country where they’re legal, while the poor ones will be forced to seek one out on the blackmarket where unfortunately thousands of them will die.

            People like you will not be saving fetuses by your idiocy, you” be condemning thousands of women to death.

          • GreginPottsville

            Sonny, your whole argument is garbage. This is why. If there was no abortion, there wouldn’t be 330,000 fetuses. Men, women, and teens would be much more careful regarding sexual reproduction if they knew an abortion wasn’t just another day in the life.

          • jmprint

            WOW! YOU ARE SO STUPID.

          • Independent1

            Fact is Greg, that studies show that abortion rates are actually higher in countries where abortion is illegal. One reason probably is that one thing that LEGAL ABORTION CLINICS do is counsel women on the pros and cons having an abortion before they agree to perform one. PP in fact, feels that they have prevented over 200,000 abortions through their counseling. I’ll guarantee you that illegal abortionists don’t make any effort to do any counseling. They’re just eager to get that coat hanger to work killing the fetus. Clinics such as PP also counsel families about whether or not they’re in a position to add more members to their family – and if the general concensus is that they’re not, they provide the family with contraceptives to prevent a pregnancy in the first place – PP estimates they’ve prevented over 450,000 unwanted pregnancies which may have led to an abortion.
            And just a brief comment on your stupid notion that Liberals, and I will venture a lot of independents such as myself, don’t compute in our minds. What doesn’t compute in the liberal’s (and independent’s minds) are families that are controlled by government rules that are NONE OF THEIR BUSINESS. GOVERNMENT HAS NO RIGHT TO CONTROL HOW FAMILIES ARE FORMED (GAY OR STRAIGHT) AND/OR HOW THEY CONTROL THEIR OWN BODIES.

          • GreginPottsville

            I love how you say PP “feels” that they prevented x # of abortions. Wow, isn’t that some objective, concrete figure.

            “GOVERNMENT HAS NO RIGHT TO CONTROL HOW FAMILIES ARE FORMED (GAY OR STRAIGHT) AND/OR HOW THEY CONTROL THEIR OWN BODIES.”
            You wrote that, so who funds Planned Parenthood?

        Planned parenthood facilities also provides sexually transmitted disease information/treatment, cancer screening as well as contraception. What part of these services do you want to eliminate.

        • GreginPottsville

          Nobody wants to eliminate those services. Planned Parenthood is plain as day nothing more than an abortion factory. Do you really think you can only get those other services at Planned Parenthood?

          • jmprint

            Yes, there services have been there for many, many years women need there services. Do you need a complete detail?

          • GreginPottsville

            And they are crying out: “Greg help me you are the only one with feelings, women who believe in pro-choice don’t have feelings.” You are an idiot not God. Planned Parenthood is not the only clinic that does abortions. They just are the only ones that help women who don’t have the means to pay the outrages cost of obtaining birth control and yearly check ups.

          • GreginPottsville

            “outrages cost of obtaining birth control and yearly check ups.”

            Do you mean if there was no Planned Parenthood (abortion factory), women would have to go without birth control? Do people go bankrupt because of having to shell out for birth control? Help me out here. Because I really don’t know that such a necessity is outrageously priced.

            ChristoD has an excellent suggestion. As well, you have made another lying, troll statement. Only an idiot does not realize that your heroes have been working like maggots to do away with birth control as well. Don’t claim that it is about medical insurance paying for it. If that were the only issue, then birth control is a bargain. A bargain, i might add that most insurance companies agree on.

            Your mob has made all these issues ones that must be decided to their satisfaction based on “morals.” Everything has to be your way. Yet, the primary tool to do this is untruth. SOME MORALS you have.

            That’s right you really don’t know anything. Do you take birth control pill? Do you have pep smears, Do you have vaginal infections? You say “do people go bankrupt…” we are not talking about people, we are talking about women, and it could mean the difference between paying a light bill. Are you on the GPO’s payroll? Because you are working hard on their agenda?

          • GreginPottsville

            First, who said anything about “pep smears”? Who said anything about banning birth control pills? Do you think if a woman had to decide between having unprotected sex or paying the light bill, it would be a hard choice? Are you really that out of touch? Are rubbers that expensive these days?

It tells me that abortion will continue only this time with an inflated price tag which will eliminate everyone but those who can afford to have an abortion.. Do I need to tell you who that might be? But that’s pubs for you, they equate everything with money.. meaning, their not pissed about the act itself but rather the taxes they have to pay for it as if THEY were the only ones who are paying taxes.. (another misconception of the do-nothing party members).

            I guess U R very fond of Dr Gosnell, Hern (Colorado).

            I volunteered at PP for about 2 mos – quit- why- because they do not counsel you about other option and they do perform abortion on tiny human being at 5th-6th mo pregnancy.

            None of the women who sought abortion have any health issues – they just got knocked up and don’t like the guy anymore or he dumped her.

            NONE of them were for a health reason NONE. PP do not use Gov. funds for murder but private donation keep them going.

            My neighbor daughter had 3 and none related to her health but to being, young, stupid and irresponsible. 3 babies denied right to live because of ignorance, indifference and lack of responsibility for their behavior. She still have 2 out of wedlock and who knows how many abortion in between.

            Too bad her mother let her live and some of U.

            We show more mercy to serial killers. By the way if Rick Perry is saying that ANY life is precious – why does he executes still???

Circumstances as to why women have abortions is not a one size fits all.

          • Russell Byrd

            Statistically, over 99% of all Planned Parenthood services are not abortion connected. That cannot be disputed, but of course you can “troll” another post about it.

            Therefore, why should another provider be sought when the one we have works just fine? Why would you make a blanket statement against PP, if you were not against family planning altogether? Who would pay the small fortune it would take to start up a new provider, or providers? You make no sense and your bigotry is showing badly . . . troll.

          • GreginPottsville

            Obviously you are not a businessman. But, you do know how to spin things. Simple question: If Planned Parenthood eliminated just abortions from there services, what percentage of revenues do you think they might lose?

          • Russell Byrd

            ZERO fool!

            Yes, abortion is murder.

            So is killing someone on death row. So I guess that makes a lot of our government officials murderers.

          • GreginPottsville

            So you are ok with killing the innocent but not someone on death row?

          • GreginPottsville

            You could argue that, but you won’t. Point is, both are legal murders, for now.

          • tax payer

            Murder is when someone kills a woman that is pregnant, but the the baby wasn’t fully formed, so a good Attorney fights to prove his client is innocent of murder of the baby, but therefore is only guilty of the death of the woman. Death Penalty either way.

          • tax payer

            Execution isn’t murder. It’s a payment to a killer for killing someone. You are against the death penalty and I am for the death penalty, so do you think I will join you in allowing a killer to not be executed. I don’t think so.

          • jmprint

            To be clear I am not against the death penalty. But if you believe in the death penalty then you should not have a problem with pro choice.

            Not sure killing an innocent baby is the same thing. You might want to re-think your comment.

          • jmprint

            STOP PLAYING GOD I don’t think like you I think of what women go through. I know facts of life, I live in realty. If this were a perfect world abortion wouldn’t be needed in some occasions.

          • bikejedi

            Isn’t it funny that Liberals are against the Death Penalty for even admitted caught on tape mass murderers but are Ok with Killing an innocent Baby that survives an assassination attempt . Obama himself supported Infanticide for Babies that survived a bungled abortion attempt and were alive outside the womb. So they don’t want to kill mass murderers ( even those who do it with the dreaded assault rifle but are more then Ok with Executing innocent babies who didn’t even ask to be conceived …SWEET MOTHER OF HYPOCRISY …How do they justify that to themselves ???? Are they that crazy keep repeating talking points without realizing how wrong that view is ?????

          • plc97477

            I wish you idiots would stop deciding what liberals are for or against. Since you wouldn’t know and probably don’t care.

          • bikejedi

            What did I say that you aren’t for or against . As most of the left walks in lock step there is very little wiggle room for independent thought . So What did I say that was wrong up there ?

          • Russell Byrd

            And if you willfully execute an innocent man because your arrogance veiled your eyes, would God forgive you?

            Oh yeah, that’s right. You are a part-time Atheist and full-time sociopath, so it’s “all good.”

            By your own admission. . . .

          • tax payer

            Yawn!

          • Russell Byrd

            Thanks once again for proving the truth of my post.

        • GreginPottsville

          My guess is you are ok with abortion on demand.

          • jmprint

            Again it’s not about abortion on demand, you are just repeating what other people say. If you are not a women and have never had a need for their services, then you have NO right to comment on women’s issues.

          • GreginPottsville

            “you have NO right to comment on women’s issues.”

            Kind of like Nazi Germany?

          • jmprint

            No, I’m not dictating as you are. Do you have a womb, have you ever had a baby, have you ever been raped? When you can answer yes, then by all means, please continue to dictate you Nazi.

          • GreginPottsville

            I dictated nothing. You lie. But I wouldn’t expect anything less from a liberal.
            Have you been raped and become pregnant? If not, then what the heck is your point?
            Taking a life is murder. Abortion is murder. You may not like the term murder, but “abortion” literally means to stop a life.

          • jmprint

            I only speak the truth. Why is it then that there is no available insurance on fetus? Is it because it is not a living person? LIFE is the period between BIRTH and DEATH.

          • GreginPottsville

            Because insurance companies heard of abortions.
            If Life is only the period between birth and death, why then in liberal California can you be charged with double murder if you kill a pregnant woman?

          • Russell Byrd

            BECAUSE MORON TROLL, the woman HAS the right to decide. You and I DO NOT have the right to decide.

            Thanks for asking the question that destroys your entire argument.

          • bikejedi

            Wow that sounds like the old fetus argument that goes kind of like …well if it cant survive outside the womb it shouldn’t be considered alive . That is such a crock …consider when a fetus heart starts to beat …consider that it is conscience of pain …Consider that a newborn will not survive outside the womb with out someone taking care of it …neither would a two year old …Neither would a welfare recipient without its food stamps …should we kill them too ????

          • jmprint

            Well I’m glad your listening, but not hearing. And if this is all you have to concentrate on you are not living.

            “should we kill them too ????” Thats my whole pointe “WE” you are intruding on a womens decision.

            It is also her option to listen to a heart beat if she wants to, it is part of her body not YOURS. You are not the keeper of fetus’. Please go away and do not respond. We can argue forever, but I have better things to do, like go help a neighbor.

          • bikejedi

            Can you read .. I asked rhetorically should we kill them too in reference to the food stamp analogy …The womens body is hers I would think the fetus’s body is their own . so please go away go help your neighbor and learn to read and not judge others

          • jmprint

            You are the only one judging, playing God. Go educate your children and keep out of others people business.

          • bikejedi

            I didn’t judge anyone..and please don’t intone what I should or should not do . And please DONT educate your children …Please by all that’s holy ….

          • Russell Byrd

            YOU would!

          • bikejedi

            Greg you speak in common sense that only confuses and scares liberals .. When they cant justify their own hypocritical views ….then they get intolerant

          • GreginPottsville

            Yes, and it doesn’t take long at all for their intolerance to come out.

          • Russell Byrd

            Any normal person would be intolerant, when they are constantly exposed to a couple of liars that persist in order to destroy the First Amendment rights of others. Do not bother making any excuses, that is exactly what you are doing and exactly what you intend to do.

            Usually, decent people do get a little intolerant when trolls bent on causing disruption start showing up. You are only interested in destroying coherent conversation and denying Free Speech. Your tools are lies, lies, more lies, and what you call “talking points.” Which in reality are just tin-foil hat propaganda written for you by the those that use you as a sock puppet. And you know where the hand goes in the “puppet,” right?

            Someone like her knows you are correct, but in their mind they don’t care because they are Mad and want to take it out on everyone in this Blog.

          • bikejedi

            Greg maybe you haven’t met Fern . If you aren’t a libtard she will just become an intolerant swearing moron . She is rather void of any intelligence or the ability to think independently . She was indoctrinated to love her slave masters in the Dem party that have kept her race in generational poverty yet armed with all of that she still thinks the Dems have her best interests at heart . She refuses to see that it was a Republican President that fought a civil war to end slavery while northern Dems were lynching black in NYC . She refuses to see that it was the Dems who enacted the Jim Crow laws to stop blacks from voting . She refuses to acknowledge that it was the Dems who filibustered the Civil Rights act and that Republicans voted for it overwhelmingly . She doesn’t even probably know that Dr King was a Republican . The Party she supports had an active leader of the KKK who served and was supported by the Party for decades . She probably doesn’t know that Planned Parenthood was founded with the mission to kill off the Black race . The Dems currently support them even though 43% of Black Pregnancies end in abortion in NYC . So there original plan seems to be working and the Dems support that and so does Fern through her to them . She supports the Party that has relegated her race to the ghettos crime and poverty of America …But hey the Dems do great PR to make low information people like her think that they are loved .

          • Russell Byrd

            All that text wasted on telling lies. Laughable.

            Everything you have said has never been backed up with any fact
            whatsoever. Regardless, of how often you have been asked. You troll
            todisrupt and drive posters away so they will not have an opportunity to
            exercise their First Amendment rights. You do not read replies. You
            lie, twist, and spin constantly. You have never refuted anything said
            against you, either.

            Youcannot be so stupid to think you will
            convince anybody of anything. The people here are not inclined to lie,
            or trust those that do. So you CAN disrupt, but you will only harden
            their resolve. Never change their minds nor wake them up. In fact, you
            confirm all the bad things we see in your vile, evil platform. So
            there is nothing else to be said, but to drive you out.

          • Russell Byrd

            We thought Goldwater was a little wacky back then, but I would love to see him on the scene today and shake his hand. Of course, he would be a middle of the road Democrat today. All your racism, bigotry, lies, and fake piety would sicken him. And I base this conclusion on what he said while he was alive.

            A lot of what I have said here is taught as basic courses on the University level. Usually something called: U.S. History I (to 1865) and II (1866 to present). They are fascinating courses for someone that wants to understand American history. I guess that isn’t you. You make yours up as you go along.

            And Kennedy by his own Policy and words would be a Republican Conservative just like MLK was

            Any idiot that has been shamed as many times as you have, but does not have the good sense and common decency to cease embarrassing himself, needs my pity. Unfortunately, the pity party has already broke up for the tonight. So trikegirl, you are just SOL.

            By the way, why don’t you just read the article. After all this time, just follow the link they have given. There is no need to check out your cherry picked data. That is just dumb, just like yourself.

          • Russell Byrd

            There has been no functional purpose to you posts since you began here. You are a TROLL, bent on disruption and denial of coherent conversation between intelligent, interested parties. Go ahead and spin my words again, but your purpose is simply to deny, by disruption and interruption, the First Amendment rights of the other, ON-TOPIC posters.

            As I warned you tonight, I will now no longer address the garbage in your posts. However, the abuse will go up temp, and you WILL be answered whenever possible.

          • Russell Byrd

            “Unbelievably dumb” Well, the words are right, though as usual, the context is wrong. Maybe, you were looking in the mirror when you posted that. From the things you have said, I guess you do a lot of mirror time. Narcissism is absolutely another of your traits. Only a narcissist would think she was that good looking, while being as butt ugly as you. You look like the proverbial north end of a south bound horse. And you surely smell just as good.

          • Russell Byrd

            You have listed three sites without any citation or link. These sites do not have any of the information you want to convey. Not only that, they can’t have the information that you claim, because the truth is exactly like the Wikipedia has it. The statistics of the votes ARE the statistics of the votes. They are part of the public record.

            I swore I would not do your work for you, but as I knew you wouldn’t, I gave you the easiest, no-brainer link I could
            find. There are many, many more. I could direct you to the
            Congressional Record. Of course, a delusional little sack of ugly shit, such as yourself, will claim that even that is false.”

          • bikejedi

            Look I cant do this anymore …You are just too stupid …It isn’t even fun …I cited sites for all of that and then I directed you to those counties board of elections and you counter that with Wiki ???? Do you even know how stupid you are ???? Wiki is Put together by fellow citizens some of them just as uninformed as you …. Wiki has no real credibility although sometimes it is right ….Good By you are an Intolerant Race card playing immature and totally ignorant person …argue with yourself and revel and fester in your hate ….Satan is going to love to have such a miserable sot like you around

          • Russell Byrd

            “Wiki” is a very good site. Just because it does not tell you what in your glorious hatred, racism, and bigotry is true, does not make it wrong. AS WELL, and hear this well. You can get the vote data from the Congressional Record. Barring that, the data is part of the public record in numerous places. This not something that can be faked as the lawmakers names are signed onto the Act when it passed.

          • Russell Byrd

            How many times have you lied about quitting? Your activity log will show two more posts after this one. I have already logged that. You see I generally reply in reverse order, so I can delete your filth more easily. This statement is going to be reposted, if you want to persist.

            Posting citations. You have mentioned three sites and have cited none. Your favorite site is just right-wing propaganda that does not even show evidence that they did anything besides make up the data.

            For instance, I have suggested several sites for your education. As well, I have suggested several other topics for your enlightenment. You have looked at none of them and refuse any attempt at educating yourself. I have posted at least three citations, even though I swore you had to do your own work.

          • Russell Byrd

            The Civil Rights Act was originally written by members of both parties, but mostly by northern, liberal Democrats, LIKE KENNEDY.

            Approximately four out of five Republicans voted for the Civil Rights Act in its final watered down form. For better of worse, the Pubs watered it down. Whether to weaken it or make it more palatable is another subject. If you remove the southern Democrats from the mix, a higher percentage of Democrats voted for the Act. Almost all of the southern Democrats switched sides. That is where the racists still reside today.

            This is indisputable fact. Continuing to tell the same lies, over and over, proves that you are indeed a RACIST. So spin all you like, no one hear believes you.

          • bikejedi

            Eh wrong the Democrats filibustered that bad boy and it was Republicans that helped them see the light . But that was when we had Presidents and leadership that encouraged working together rather the a President that encourages strife and hatred

          • Russell Byrd

            And that light is the light given off by evil. Women are hated by you and those rednecks, and sex that a woman might enjoy must be banned by you. and women must be made to be your slave and do your bidding as driven by your masculine inadequacy.

            I can understand you have a different point of view, but your arrogant confidence in your evil is hard to fathom.

            Women enjoy being my slave ….some of them like kinky …If you had ever had girl friends besides beauties that look like Rachel Madcow maybe you would have… fun sex …But since you find Rachel Beautiful maybe you have only been with boys .My women never have to worry whether I respect them because most of them are highly intelligent …and that is the first thing I look at ..sorry but your stereo types more reflect Bill Clinton them me ….Good thing Liberal women don’t have any self respect …O mean look at that poor door mat Killary ….Husband screws around on her and she LIEs for him…. Obama uses his race on her and whips out the Race card on her and she not only goes to work for him but Lied about Benghazi for him to help make an excuse for him ….and what a whooper …You Tube ???? and you people either bought that and repeated it or knew and still used it as an excuse for Obama … You have no ethics even to yourself … Ask yourself… what do you think would happen if that had happened under Bush and he LIED about it and excused it away using a preposterous LIE like You Tube ????? Do you think Conservative would be STUPID enough to buy that and repeat it ???? Or do you think they would’ve called BULLSHIT on him immediately …. It’s a given that the Liberals media would have skewered him …What’s also a given is that Conservatives would have too …and there is no doubt in that ….Now you go along and be a good cult like sheep now …Ok and remember none of what happened in Benghazi was Obama or Killary’s fault because it was done because of a You Tube video …on 9/11 …with several intelligence reports warning of terror attacks …in a Country where we armed the Muslim Brotherhood and Al Qaeda elements ….that’s right it’s You Tubes fault …

          • Russell Byrd

            I only read the first line. It told me exactly what I wanted to know about you and the rest of the post. The rest goes to waste.

            You have proved that you are infantile, in very bad taste, cruel, and that you cannot make it with a woman. REAL men do not spend all their time bragging about their prowess. They know they have it. Freud suggested that men that lacked confidence, such as yourself, always trying to act big, were in fact homosexual. We already have agreed that is true. . . .

            So why call attention to yourself, when you could just fade away gracefully.

          • bikejedi

            Look you are the one who brought up women being slaves …I only pointed out that some of them ( not all ) like that in a kinky way …Nothing wrong with being a” risk taker ” for a man or a women …See this is why I get laid and you don’t …And I know I’ve touched a real nerve with that just by your responses ….. (You can feel and believe that I get laid and you know you don’t ) As Jim McMahon once said . It isn’t bragging if you can back it up … Women dig confidence and they can smell fear in guys who lack confidence . This explains why I get laid and you don’t . And you cant count masturbating to pictures of Rachel Madcow as getting laid K

          • Russell Byrd

            I could give you links, but I won’t. It is about time you did your own work. So I thought I would help out your inbox.

            Overtwo-thirds of Democrats voted for the Civil Rights Act. Right at four out of five Republicans did also. If you factor out the Southern Democrats, the rest of the Democrat Party voted slightly higher than the Republicans for the Act. So once again you have fallen short of the truth. If 69 and 70 percent of Democrats voted for the Act during its two trips through Congress, only a mental midget would say that the
            Democrats were a racist party. And the only Democrats against the Act, with a couple of exceptions, were Southern segregationists. Yes, Republicans were overwhelmingly for the Act, at least in modified form, but that is not the point, is it?

            Truth is, there were quite a number of southern Republican racists. However, as the Republican party was not much of a factor in most of the South, you can make your glib
            generalization in relative safety. The South was Democrat before, during, and after the Civil War. The Republican Party was the party of the Carpet Baggers, and the invaders. Therefore, the Republican Party was not very popular in the South. When Civil Rights popped up the racist elements of the Democratic Party converted to be Republicans.
            This fact speaks more volumes than that made up crap you continue to spew. Guess who is racist still today. REPUBLICONS.

          • bikejedi

            You say IF Southern Democrats blah blah blah …so you put an IF in there and then go on to correlate that to your point ???? Do you realize that is changing the reality of what did happen ???? Do you realize that is like saying IF they voted for it it would have been different ..or if we don’t count them it would have changed the fact ??? Do you realize you sound dumb and infantile trying to argue like that ”
            Also you are not the first person to try to do that spin job that those Republicans who fought to end slavery were somehow really Democrats hahahahahahaha …So what were the KKK then ??????hahahhahahahah

            Anyone, that was not just a troll would have given up long ago. Your presence was, and is, unwelcome. No one is listening, you are proving nothing to no one. You are providing a lot of entertainment, at your own expense, by making a spectacle of yourself. I will be here as long as I please, or until I have something, like family, to take me away. You can never “win. Only a sick mind would think you could.

            You have proved one thing. You have a fixation on doing the same thing over and over again, and you expect a different result. That is a definition of madness. As well, your propensity for fabrication shows serious mental issues. Only a pathological liar would think that he can convince anyone that is already armed with the truth. I conclude that you are seriously mentally ill.

            We get it we get it …When the Dems do something that totally annihilates their own fans talking points just say they are Republicans and when Republicans end Slavery and give Blacks voters rights just say those were Dems …we get it we get it …You are a freaking nut we get it …Do realize you destroy your own ideology and positions the more you post …Come on Im trying to help you here …You are making yourself sound like a moron and Im not trying to be an asshole on this

            Trollgirl post previously and repeatedly debunked with cited evidence and fact, with irrefutable statistics well-know in the public record.

            By the way Repubs are not the party of Lincoln. They more or less died when he did. There is a famous letter Lincoln wrote. He explained that he could defeat the rebels without any real difficulty. The problem he said was with defeating the Union industrialists and money men. With the exception of Roosevelt and Eisenhower, Pubs have been in ecstatic and unnatural love with the very people that Lincoln complained about. Just as you are.

            Really, what do you do for a living? Drive a forklift? Nothing wrong with that. I have done that as part of my former duties, but usually those guys are not qualified to be political commentators. I mean, you do not seem to be very bright, but you do have a compulsive personality. Amongst other mental defects.

          • bikejedi

            As I said before ….So if the Republicans do something like oh I don’t know maybe fight a Civil war to end Slavery while the Dems fought against that …you just claim those Republicans were really Democrats hahahahahaha do you know that even the Liberals are laughing at you …. And likewise when the Dems institute the Jim Crow laws and found the KKK those were really those rascally Republicans . Hahahahahahahaha OMG I’m sharing that as well as your love for the beauty that is everything Rachel Madcow with friends and they cant believe… even a Liberal would say something that cray cray hahahahahahahahhahahahahah

            But alas, that is exactly what you did. And coherent, meaningful conversation dies anywhere near you. Sorry, but that is why I declared for everybody to read your posts. I have made far too many posts, but what I have posted, the regular posters received very well. Conversation prospered and no one was offended. On the other hand, the odor from the mess you have made is not one of Roses. And forget about “waking” anybody up. Yeah, you did that, but all you accomplished was to solidify hared against you and the right-wing and increase resolve to ensure your total defeat. Not what I would call a successful body of work. You jokers don’t get it. Your antics are what is beating you. If I really were Satan, like you seem to think, all I have to do to recruit souls is fold my arms and take a nap. You will do all my work for me. Of course, as you are very nearly clinically insane, you are doing all this out of compulsion. Your spiel is just a rationalization to give you a sense of accomplishment when you do what you do. And though that is rare with me, there is no humor and no hidden meaning in what I have just said.

          • Russell Byrd

            I did not read but one of your posts yesterday, but it would be impossible to reply without seeing them. Your sentence structure appeared completely skewed as if a man in an insane frenzy had thrown the words on the page. I could almost imagine you foaming at the mouth.

            Again, if you had actually read my posts you would know that I have been told what was in the posts. A good laugh really. That is how I had what I suspected above confirmed. I mean, since you have been stalking me like a butt sniffing dog, you had an opportunity to read everything I have written.

            I only decided to stop reading as the content, and the replies were wasting too much time. You do not seem capable of reading coherently anyway. So why should I put quality into my “product.” That is one of the reasons I am occasionally a little rough. I am trying to get your attention without wasting my whole life doing it.

            EHHH WRONG …I have invited you to post in a civil manner . You have opted to stop as you were just making yourself look bad with every post .

            EHHH WRONG. You have no right to invite me to post. In any manner, you sock puppet. The First Amendment that you have repeatedly proved you want to eliminate gives me that right as a citizen. Not some Koch biter like you.

            Ehhh Wrong I never said I was responsible for the first amendments all I pointed out was I NEVER am against anyone posting …I particularly like when you post and totally destroy your own credibility …GEE LIKE YOU JUST DID WITH THE GAY SLUR …And no Im a Conservative so I by the very definition I am pro Constitution and don’t want it interpreted . It is not a living breathing document it is fine the way it is …Look everyone its Russell …the guy who accuses others of bigotry intolerance and homophobia ….He did say to read the exchanges ….

          • Russell Byrd

            Ehhh Wrong. You interject into conversations of other with total nonsense, and then you post over and over and over and over, virtually in perpetuity. And what you post is pure lies, racism, bigotry, hate, etc., and more lies.

            And no, you do not know what the Constitution even says. You distort history to the point of irrelevance, and you keep posting the same nonsense even when the evidence is made plain and cited.

            For instance, seeing a you are here, give us all a U3 – U6 lesson. Do it completely so all can see how gifted you are. No cheating, I will find the source if you do not cite it. And what you have been doing is not a citation. I told you in the briefest terms exactly what the terms meant. Leave off the propaganda too, it is all conjecture. No one with a mind even pretends the numbers are exactly right.

            So come on and give us your best shot. Put up or shut up.

            Man, it is hard for me to post right now. I am still laughing. I am going to contact disqus and see if they can forward a request for a mental inquest. You have no shame and no sense whatsoever. You are the stir fried conductor of the crazy train.

            Tell me, do you even know how old Stepanie is, either one.

            And where is my U3 – U6 explanation, retard. The deadline has long passed. You ask me questions, that I can and did answer, that your no-information ass does not even know yourself.

          • bikejedi

            Please oh Please do that … I implore you …They will get a good laugh at you . No Stephanie doesn’t look like you ideal of a gorgeous woman the boyish Rachel Madcow ..Stepahine looks like a girl and has a girlish figure and nice legs …so you still don’t know who she is ….Didn’t the imaginary friends who you say are reading my post clue you in ????

            And no you didn’t know the differences or even what they were . That would be apparent to ANYONE who reads your posts …..Hahahahahhahahahahah BIG TIME LOSER BIG TIME

          • Russell Byrd

            We both know that if you were laughing, you would have stopped posting days ago. I have hurt you so consistently that you are revenge posting on impulse trying to get back at me. You are like a gambler on a losing streak that can’t quit.

            Ever hear of on-topic posting? No, I guess not.

            For the record, and for everyone including the moderators to read, this s**t has been harassing me to explain U3 – U6. I did, very simply and concisely, so that a layman could understand. This s**t continues to harass, saying that I do not know what it is. For the record, I have demanded that he explain, in his own words, what he thinks it is. I have made this challenge three times. He has not responded. In fact, he has dropped his harassment on that topic. I must point out that this poster is only here to harass as a bully. I am only here to resist a bully.

            He now makes an erroneous statement about Obama’s ex-campaign manager. Obviously, he does not know her either, but continues to argue about it.

          • bikejedi

            Oh I’m laughing because all I have to do is post something and whenever you respond you just make yourself look more and more pathetic and more and more like a Loser …and you most definitely are .
            You NEVER posted anything on the U3 U6 because you not only didn’t know what it was but what you posted was totally erroneous and didn’t have anything to do with that . I properly explained it and gave you tips about what it is and how it works . I even explained what how and why the U3 that Obama use could be manipulated is the easier method to manipulate and why they would want to do that ….You still don’t get it even after all that ….Should I embarrass your pathetic loser ass some more and copy and paste those exchanges ?????? hahhhahahahahahah

            On Stephanie ….I think I’ve proven that I not only know who she is but also know her personally

          • Russell Byrd

            ALL already answered repeatedly. You have never, never answered any of those questions yourself. You do not know the answers and have forfeited your right to ask. You are not only a troll, but a disgusting lazy one to boot. Are you sure that while you spew hate for people on public assistance, you are not really looking in a mirror?

            I guess I will have to make a gentle inquiry with the campaign people. You do not understand, that though I jest, I know beyond doubt that you are unstable.

            So here is a trikegirl on-topic statement: Mary had a little lamb, her father shot it dead, now it goes to school with her, on a slice of bread. See how easy it is to reply on-topic to you. More is coming soon to a nightmare near you.

          • bikejedi

            Let me help you find them since you are too low information to know where the former Campaign Workers are . Most couldn’t find jobs as they Campaigned for Obama and we all know what a train wreck the economy is . Even with the connections they made in this Liberal Utopia they cant find jobs Most are working for free for a non for profit called Organize America . They met today at 600 W Washington in a Union Hall . They are due to meet there again next week . I talked to 3 of them today myself and asked why they don’t have jobs . You need medication and I implore all of Russell imaginary friends who follow and report to him on my posts to go to his mother and to make sure that there are no sharp objects in that basement where you sleep in you own filth ….How’s that weight problem ??? Didn’t think I knew did you ….One of your imaginary friends told me hahahahahahahahqa

          • Russell Byrd

            There is not a word of truth in the entire post. It is comical that a guy that had all day just to let me be has to start this back up. Not one, on-topic post in a week. How many have you made? Then you keep spewing total garbage.

            Let’s see, I went to see the Pope. We had a long talk and he said that I was right and he would adopt Taoism as the new Catholic mantra. Then I went over to Syria where I personally kicked Assad in the shin and made him make peace. Next, I consulted with the army corps and redesigned all of the nation’s flood control. And then, just before a well earned supper I talked with Boehner and McConnell and browbeat them into starting to love America and being more reasonable. All the political gridlock has been solved, thanks to me. Boy, now those are some Michael Stole size whoppers.

            Get on back to Lakeshore, I already know you are an alumni. There is no shame in that, really and sincerely, at least if you are willing to quit riding the crazy train.

            Man I am proud, please get all my buddies back for me. Please, please, please. . . . Remember dirtbag, you are wasting my valuable time, but your nonsense is just comical drivel. You are almost as good as the comedy club,and CHEAP, too! That is, if you don’t get back to the rubber room first.

          • bikejedi

            You say Im wasting your valuable time yet you keep posting ..Why not just ignore it cray cray …Because you cant Because you don’t have a life .You are one sick Puppy …do you even realize how stupid and unstable you sound ??????…What is Lakeshore ? …Is that where your mom takes you when the meds don’t work and you become suicidal ? I mean you can only have so many imaginary friends and so many jerk off sessions to pictures of Rachel before you lose it …right ?

          • Russell Byrd

            You do not read very well do you. You are the cheapest entertainment I have seen. Your name calling does nothing to harm me at all. I am just watching the spectacle of a mind breaking up, admittedly a weak mind, but a real crack up nonetheless.

            I continue for two reasons. One, because I promised you that I would. I keep my promises strictly, I never fail to unless it is beyond my control. They would have to cancel my account, or turn off my power, before that will happen. Two, I am not going to allow a cowardly, lying (oh my God, a breathtaking liar), bullying troll to destroy civil conversation when I am around. You have been offered the opportunity to stop several times. JUST STOP. I posted at bedtime last night and you had all day without another post from me. This has been the situation for the last several days, actually five days. You can post “let’s quit” and we will cease right then without a further comment from me. Or you can JUST STOP. If you have not been smart enough to figure out, I am only replying to your posts the same as you do to mine. BUT keep in mind that does not include future blogs. Just this one, right now. Tomorrow will be a new day and a whole new set of rules.

            P.S., since you seem to be having trouble with your desire to bring my “friends” back, I have taken the liberty of lending a hand. I would expect Fern sometime soon. I am sure it will be a hoot.

          • bikejedi

            Well FERN is back …It figures that would be the only one . You two are a match made in Hell …do whatever you want moron …By the way moron Im having several intelligent conversation on other Nat memo stories as we speak …all with intelligent people …If you weren’t consumed on here you would already know that ….and Gee Im not having any problem with those people

          • Russell Byrd

            Actually Queenie, I am on four stories myself. Pray-tell, what did the good people on those stories do to deserve a visitation from a dirtbag like you. I do believe one thing, all those stories you are commenting on probably do have smart people posting. With one EXCEPTION. Can you guess the name of that “dirtbag?” His initials are M S.

            And Fern will probably have company, if that is what you really desire. So I guess I have the idiotic answer I really expected to my very reasonable offer.

          • bikejedi

            Well hoooooraaay for you …Hoover …I really don’t care what you do …do whatever you freaking want ….You are certifiable… fester in your shallow world with your imaginary friends who read my posts and then report back to you ….fester in your hate and intolerance…Just fester and don’t take a bath ….have to go …I’m going out with a real girl and she doesn’t look like a boy

          • Russell Byrd

            Well, Queenie, make sure to get the stopper in real secure after you get the right air pressure in your date. You do not want your “girl,” wink, wink, to go sailing all over your closet.

            Why do you think any of that sh*t you spew will have any effect on me. I guess you long for the cozy ward out at Lakeshore.

          • bikejedi

            Hoover hey buddy how ya doin ???? Going riding today with a real girl and you ? Hahahahah Enjoy those Rachel pictures

          • Russell Byrd

            Like I said, make sure you get the air plug in tight. You do not want it leaking and your boy, oops, “girl” (wink, wink) getting soft when the action gets going. You never know, but sometimes those things pop. I can see it going whoooosh straight up 30 feet right during heavy traffic. Hilarious.

            So, even closet Queens go out for a little air. Cool, at least I do not have to worry about being downwind.

          • Russell Byrd

            Your Stephanie has a website, DICKHEAD.

          • Russell Byrd

            You know you are one of the stupidest, meanest, and out-right lazy pieces of garbage I have ever dealt with. “Your” Stephanie is a real estate agent in Chicago. She did not work for Obama. How dumb can you get. She is rather attractive in a Rachel Maddow kind of way, but she does not look like Obama’s manager at all.

            Anyway, as she will soon be appearing at a Chick-Fil-A function, I figure she is one of “yours.” You are the stir-fried conductor of the crazy train. She needs to be warned about you.

          • Russell Byrd

            You mean to say that you do not know who Stephanie Cutter is? Your Stephanie is a real estate agent in Chicago and never worked for Obama. In fact, she is appearing at some Chick-Fil-A function, so she is unlikely to be anyone a Democrat would hang with.

          • bikejedi

            You really still don’t know ????? didn’t those imaginary friends that are reading my posts and reporting it to you at least have the decency to clue you in ….You should fire them …I mean imaginarily I mean HAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHA . The Stephanie I know is not a realtor .

          • Russell Byrd

            I am getting way ahead again. Your “rapid fire” technique gives us a post that has no discernible meaning. Except maybe, the last sentence.

          • Russell Byrd

            I. did. not. know. who. Stephanie. Cutter. was., but. I. do. now. . Your. Stephanie. is. a. real. estate. agent. and. not. a. worker. for. Obama. . I. hate. to. offend. you. by. telling. you. she. is. going. to. appear. at. a. Chick-Fil-A. function. . So. she. probably. does. not. know. about. you.

            She. is. attractive. in. a. Rachel. Maddow. kind. of. way. . Bt. of. course,. closet. folk. won’t. understand. that. .

          • bikejedi

            Wrong . the Stephanie I know has absolutely NOTHING IN COMMON WITH THE BOY KNOWN AS RACHEL MADCOW . She is 5 ‘ 8″ nice legs …Dresses conservatively but with a skight hint of sexy and is definitely not a realtor …And there you go again extolling the beauty of Rachel …You really are hung up on boyish girls hahahahahahahha . Look Im trying to help you here …Stop posting you are making an A out of yourself …hahhahahahahahahahahahahahah

          • Russell Byrd

            Like I said, you are a closet queer scared s**tless that someone you know will figure you out. Real men, whether gay or straight, can deal with the facts of life. You hate Rachel Maddow because Rush Limppud whispered in your ear to hate her while he was behind you giving you a good hard dry shag. Of course, what are moronic sock puppets for? They can’t think for themselves. They need “instruction” if you understand my drift.

            And time has long since expired, but where is your U3 – U6 explanation.

          • bikejedi

            There you go with the Gay slurs …I think I’m going to post so that some of your Liberal friends come back to this discussion so they can see what a homophobe you are . And once again only a Boy Lover would find Rachel attractive and everytime you bring that up everyone laugh at you . My gay co worker thinks you are a freaking joke . I explained U3 / U6 and you gave your laughable version in these comments for all to see

          • Russell Byrd

            According to you, you are self-employed. That usually means you do not work “with” someone else. Any work anywhere near you is not going to get done anyway. As for a gay co-worker, I am sure you made him up. Rachel is attractive to real men. That does not mean any of us will ever go out with her, much less anything else. You are a closet queen and are afraid it will become common knowledge. And I suspect, more than a little jealous. As far as U3 & U6, posting cooked figures does not explain the methodology. In fact, you cannot even spell methodology without my example. You have never explained what it is and how it is figured. You have only run your stupid mouth about something I DO KNOW how to calculate, and guess what, I do not give a damn what you think. Haven’t you noticed that I have not bothered to answer further. As for posting for my Liberal friends, please DO so. They will be amazed to see you still being such a silly troll. How about them apples. Lies busted AGAIN! YES!

          • bikejedi

            I have nothing but Pity for a level of stupidity lower then FERN . I didn’t post figures about the U3 and U6 other then to site where those numbers are as of this posting . the discussion wasn’t about where those numbers are but rather what those methods are and how they are derived …You mean to tell me even after all of this discussion you STILL DONT GET IT FERN ????? And at least Im employed and not on entitlements like you . Food Stamp and Drag Queen . I cant believe you STILL don’t know what the U3 and U6 are about….LOSER

          • Russell Byrd

            Yeah you did. I cannot stop you from lying. No one is going to come by your slum and stretch your neck like you deserve. But one of these days it will happen when you finally smart off to the wrong outfit. Maybe, at one of your little soirees you will wind up road kill with 200 tire tracks up your yellow, cowardly backside. Like this post here, spin, lie, post off-topic, and bring in other people to obscure the fact that you are a clueless little monkey of a troll. Of course, Michael, we all will never forget you, no matter how you try to re-write your history.

          • Russell Byrd

            Like I said, are you still at Lakeshore or did you get tossed onto the street? Soon, they will have to find you another bed where they can get you some haldol and ativan.

          • bikejedi

            Hahahahahah Well She isn’t ” My Stephanie ” but I wouldn’t toss her out of bed either . Just as long as it was a Derek Jeter type of thing . Anyway ” MY Stephanie ” is approx. 5′ 8″ light brunette somewhat attractive and in NO WAY LOOKS , OR IS AS BOYISH AS RACHEL MADCOW . Hahhahahahahah There you go again extolling the Beauty of you boy er gorgeous girl Rachel . and the Stephanie I know is not a realtor . You destroy your own credibility every time you post …Look Im trying to help you when I say …do yourself a favor and stop posting …You are killing yourself

          • Russell Byrd

            Saying stupid untruths just puts me ahead even more. The score is about 99-3, in my favor. I had to ease up on you for you to even get that. Rather than killing myself, I feel real good.

            As for Stephanie Cutter, I do not understand why you are destroying yourself so badly. You talk like misogynist scum, you make claims that are strictly eighth-grade, and you lie in a manner easy to disprove.

            Stephanie Cutter, the one you claim to know, cannot be Obama’s former manager. She is not in Chicago and she is not brunette. She is a blonde. The height is about right. What is your Stephanie’s age? Of course, I know you are just making up another story based on your delusions.

            Quit faking over the Rachel Maddow thing. You are a closet queer, plain and simple. Real men can deal with it, whether gay or straight. Your nonsense speaks volumes.

            You have never made a point. You just keep posting even though I have warned you that you will never “win.” It is not possible, so acting like a fool, only makes you look like a fool. In fact, your discussion is so trite, I find you almost comical. Before long, you will be reading your Baby Huey comics to me.

            I think if your family read your nonsense, they would disown you as a loon. Probably put you back in Lakeshore where you belong? Or are you still there? I assumed you are one that got put out on the street? I hear Chicago closed a bunch of mental institutions. So I guess the Stephanie you know is a psychiatric nurse.

          • bikejedi

            Well since I posted no truths that hurts your premise and decimates your version of the score …it is me 100 you zip . You haven’t made a single point …someone needs to call your mommy and tell her to keep all the sharp things away from you .

            She is a brunette who lightens her hair …check out the eyebrows …You would known that trick if you were a man and had ever gotten laid before…I mean by a girl

            You claim Im a closet queer while you are the one who thinks the boyish Rachel Madcow is fine and gorgeous …If that is what you think please stop being disrespectful to gays and come out already…. oh and what the hell is Lakeshore ????

          • Russell Byrd

            Yep, you are a closet queen. And you do not know that lady. She is just a face and a name you have seen and heard. When you mentioned her you running her down. Go ahead and crow, and bring on those Liberal friends you say you can conjure. I is not skeered of anything a scuzball like you can do.

            Didn’t I ask you if you knew the difference between a crotch-rocket and a Hoover? The only difference is the position of the dirt bag. Kind of poignant when I think of you.

          • bikejedi

            Your boyfriend calls you HOOVER …Go cry in your filthy basement and ask your mommy for some more fattening food …See if she can give you some beer money ok You Are the BIGGEST LOSER hahahahahahaha

          • Russell Byrd

            Ooooooooooooooooooh, is the big bad queen taking a liking to me. Your a pitiful chicken-sh*t.

          • Russell Byrd

            So what you are implying is you do not know Obama’s ex-manager either. You are giving me s**t over the fact that I do not know someone that I have never heard of nor never met. Kind of mentally ill. Very delusional.

          • bikejedi

            Well you must be mentally Ill . I have proven that I have knowledge only someone who knows her would . Hell I did everything but give her address …So yes , you are a loser who is mentally Ill and pathetic to boot

          • Russell Byrd

            Michael, I can have your address anytime I want it. For the record I DON’t. So the fact that a lady, that you have defamed, lives in the same city, and you have an idea of where she lives, just makes you a stalking troll. Potentially dangerous and I am obligated to notify authorities. I WILL not mention this again. I will just log your posts more carefully, from now on. So keep shucking and jiving with all the lies and spin.

          • bikejedi

            I never defamed Stephanie . And you can find my old address it was in South Holland Il . There are addresses listed to other people with my name in the Chi . So have at it

          • Russell Byrd

            No, for liability purposes, I do not want to know. I cannot use an official source to get the address, without an immediate cause. My point is simply, that it can be done, and you claiming to know the address of S C, makes you a potential stalker, with all that entails. Only a moron would offer his old address in such a manner. You are tossing it at me like you got nerve, but you did not really tell me anything, coward. I am quite aware that there are a number of Michael Stoll’s in Chi. Several of them are ex-cons. Are you one of them?

          • bikejedi

            You are totally unhinged …Yes I have nerve because I have nothing to hide . And no Steph would not call me a Stalker …do what ever you want and Im sure they will take you away in the end .

          • Russell Byrd

            No body is going to buy into that sh*t. You head is swollen up bigger than a corpse on a July afternoon. And you are dumber than a sack of BROKEN hammers. Alibi away about people you claim to know, but don’t.

            Mary had a little lamb . . . and the doctor fainted.

            Now that made more sense than you do.

          • Russell Byrd

            You mean to say that you do not know who she is.

            She is a real estate agent. Not a political worker.

            In fact, she is appearing at some Chick-Fil-A function, so she is
            unlikely to be anyone a Democrat would hang with.

          • Russell Byrd

            You know you are one of the stupidest, meanest, and out-right lazy
            pieces of garbage I have ever dealt with. “Your” Stephanie is a real
            estate agent in Chicago. She did not work for Obama. How dumb can you
            get. She is rather attractive in a Rachel Maddow kind of way, but she
            does not look like Obama’s manager at all.

            Anyway, as she will soon be appearing at a Chick-Fil-A function, I
            figure she is one of “yours.” You are the stir-fried conductor of the
            crazy train. She needs to be warned about you

          • bikejedi

            By comparison you make FERN sound like a genius . And no she doesn’t look like you ideal boyish woman Rachel in the least …Oh and there you go again with the Rachel is a babe talk HAHAHHAHAH…the Stephanie I know ran the Campaign here in the Chi ….

          • Russell Byrd

            Not possible. That Stepanie Cutter did not work in Chicago at that time and is certainly not there now. This is a story you hit upon from her prior connections with Chicago. I doubt if you have ever seen that Stephanie in person, much less have her as a customer.

          • bikejedi

            Well lets see the Stephanie I know lived in Lakeview North of Diversey and right off Broadway while she worked on the Campaign . I would not divulge the address but that should tell you I know her . She currently is working for a Liberal agenda PR think tank along with former Obama Campaigners . As far as I know she still maintains the Chicago residence but is seldom here .

          • Russell Byrd

            I realize now, that you do not have any friends at all. Your outing yesterday was probably your best attempt at being near living, breathing humans. They only let you come because you have a crotch-rocket that they can add to the collection. Probably, that crotch-rocket is not even yours. Borrowed in all likelihood. I bet they make you ride at the tail, so all the “breeze” filters back your way. Or maybe so your unwashed stench will not gag the real riders.

            If you have not figured out, I love doing this. Yes, I have a real life and a lot of things to do. Most of those things actually classify as “work.” But I just love shooting the proverbial “fish in a barrel.”

          • bikejedi

            Wrong I have more friends then you will ever have and no that bike is not mine . I have owned every kind of MCY and currently ride a Blackbird . For all of you who want to make fun of crotch rockets I too have ridden Harleys . I will say if you want to make fun of these bikes you probably don’t ride or are too scared to go full tilt boogey in corners ..so stick with your slow poor handling cruisers …these bikes are for Pro riders who can push a bike to its limits and have the balls to do so … Line em up if you think you’re fast K …You don’t have a life at all if you are posting messages all night long on a Saturday night and all day Sunday …You notice I haven’t been posting because I was out with friends and today put 46 mi on my bicycle …Gat out of your moms basement and at least take a shower ok

            First line contains statement not in evidence and information considered untrustworthy. Therefore:

            Balance of post unread as waste of time.

          • bikejedi

            Liar you wouldn’t have responded if you hadn’t read it . You just don’t have a clue as to Motorcycles either . Fish in a barrel indeed

          • Russell Byrd

            I said I didn’t read it, I didn’t read it. As far as motorcycles, I used to ride long ago. But, I never said anything about riding a motorcycle. I never said anything about wanting to know about motorcycles. I never said anything about the subject at all, but to point out your fixation with a crotch-rocket. That is something you made up in your own mind. Your a child with a big boy’s toy. I am sure, that though you hate the poor and working people, that you have never done a day’s work in your life.

            I don’t even find the average motorcycle rider much of a real man. No, beating up and threatening people, does not make one a man.

            Know what the difference between a Hoover and a motorcycle is? The position of the dirtbag. Bwwwwaaaahhhhh! Drum roll please, as stalker troll goes down again. . . .

          • bikejedi

            Motorcycle riders beat people up ???? You really don’t have a clue …Most guys who ride are real men . Studies have shown they are risk takers and fun lovers and that is why chicks dig guys who ride . But stay in your mommies basements and jerk off to pictures of the woman you find so gorgeous …Rachel Madcow and the idiot troll goes down in flames again ….Look Im ceasing this as you are too stupid intolerant anti gay bigoted racist etc …so wallow in your hate Bye Bye

          • Russell Byrd

            Idiot troll . . . now you are calling attention to yourself. Having a set of testicles and taking risks does not make you a man. Any animal can do those things. Taking unnecessary risks show a lack of intelligence as well as character. I know you do not understand.

          • bikejedi

            Nobody said unnecessary risks stupid , and this explains why you have never been laid . By a women anyway . Judging by the fact that you think Rachel Madcow is the ( YOUR ) ideal of a gorgeous women then I would conclude that you are not hetero . And before you say I don’t like Lesbians… I do …But I can tell a pretty girl from a boy dog anytime ….Michele Rodriguez is a beautiful women for instance and tough enough to handle a real man if she choses …She is bi after all . NO HETERO MAN would say Rachel is gorgeous …if they did they would be lying ….but you said it …soooooooo

          • Russell Byrd

            That was one of your smarter posts and still incoherent. If the comment section serves no “great purpose,” why do you persist with trying to convince people with your lies and spin?

            If I am a sheep, then you are a piss ant.

            You and Fern do more to turn people away from your narrow minded intolerant ignorant views then anything any of us could post …are you Ferns wife ? Is this one of those civil union things ?

          • Russell Byrd

            Out of respect for another poster that has not done anything to be involved in this stupid exercise of yours, I must pass on answering your question. Beyond that however, I can still call you a dick. Just for involving someone else. You are just low class scum.

            And leaving Fern out of the equation, what have I said to any of the regular, “friendly” posters to put them off. As I have said repeatedly, I do post, but not that often. Unless, of course, the unreasonable, bullying, disruptive, untruthful, TROLLS show up. That BE YOU, old boy! Then I am apt to go into overdrive. So there is the truth of our little parley.

            I am not a proud man, but with one exception, no one besides low class scum like you, has ever said a cross word to me about anything. Admittedly, on that one occasion that one poster failed to understand what I was trying to say, and I was splitting hairs when it would have been better to say nothing. Yet this was a discussion amongst the “friendly” posters. Not with an intentionally disruptive TROLL like you.

            Everything you have said has never been backed up with any fact whatsoever. Regardless, of how often you have been asked. You troll todisrupt and drive posters away so they will not have an opportunity to exercise their First Amendment rights. You do not read replies. You lie, twist, and spin constantly. You have never refuted anything said against you, either.

            Youcannot be so stupid to think you will convince anybody of anything. The people here are not inclined to lie, or trust those that do. So you CAN disrupt, but you will only harden their resolve. Never change their minds nor wake them up. In fact, you confirm all the bad things we see in your vile, evil platform. So there is nothing else to be said, but to drive you out.

            You do realize that Liberals are always using the talking point that Conservatives aren’t interested in having a dialogue right ??? Well that’s why we are here and what we are met with is intolerance . Now expand that to Congress and the Senate where you say the GOP is just being obstructionist in nature . You people take you cues from them and the way they act so if that is their doctrine then you can imagine what the GOP faces everyday . You know instead of just being intolerant and swearing you mi an honest dialogue . I think the problem you have with that is that when you do that you find out that everything your leaders are telling you is wrong . You have been so invested in the lies they tell that you don’t want to admit you or they might be wrong . Seeing as you cant dispute the facts we put in front of you that should tell you something .

            Fern I posted this to Greg but I thought you might learn something from it too … Fern , You love the Dem party that has kept your race in generational poverty yet armed with all of that you still think the Dems have your best interests at heart . She refuses to see that it was a Republican President that fought a civil war to end slavery while northern Dems were lynching black in NYC . She refuses to see that it was the Dems who enacted the Jim Crow laws to stop blacks from voting . She refuses to acknowledge that it was the Dems who filibustered the Civil Rights act and that Republicans voted for it overwhelmingly . She doesn’t even probably know that Dr King was a Republican . The Party she supports had an active leader of the KKK who served and was supported by the Party for decades . She probably doesn’t know that Planned Parenthood was founded with the mission to kill off the Black race . The Dems currently support them even though 43% of Black Pregnancies end in abortion in NYC . So there original plan seems to be working and the Dems support that and so must Fern through her devotion to them . She supports the Party that has relegated her race to the ghettos crime and poverty of America …But hey the Dems do great PR to make low information people like her think that they are loved . So I have to ask why do you have such a cult like devotion to the party that is cheerleading your races demise ???? If it is just because Obama is a White African that is no excuse . He has furthered the anti black agenda of that Party . You do realize that Blacks and women have by far fared the worse under Obama in terms of employment and pay equality …right ??? You could look all this up and you will find I am telling the truth on every point ….

            As for all those hot conservacon ladies. Be careful, I hear it takes a lot of patience to get the air pressure just right.

            Actually, most liberal women are rather cute, generally educated, have a real personality, and are very smart. Of course, I realize that “smart” turns you completely off. Sort of ruins the real reason why you even give a woman the time of day. Of course, there are all kinds of liberal women, but the important thing is: They’re REAL.

          • Russell Byrd

            No Republican president since Lincoln has had his outlook, honesty, and resolve. Every Repub since, except Roosevelt and Eisenhower, would have left the slaves in bondage and worked out a lucrative business deal to make money off their misery.

            Let’s face it, your spin is lame an ineffective.

          • bikejedi

            The fact that the DEMs own all the ghettos in America would seem to prove the opposite . They have kept Blacks in generational Poverty ion exchange for their votes . Meanwhile the Republicans treat all Americans as Americans

          • Russell Byrd

            Right-wing, Fake News slogan time. . . . You just laid out as fact something that is not at all in evidence to make a point that makes no coherent sense. We keep people from suffering and dying. To you, no one has any value if they cannot be made a source of profit. As well, and a warning from history, seen many times over. By placating and providing for human needs we are keeping them from coming and killing a-holes like you in your beds. Your platform will lead to a revolution that will utterly destroy the nation. You can shove all the big talk about what YOU will do if it happens. I already know that cowardice is another one of your “superior” traits.

          • bikejedi

            What is wrong with you ??? Most of the ghettos in America are largely populated by blacks . These people are fooled by race dealing poverty hustlers Like Al and Jesse into thinking that the Dems have their best interests at heart even though things get worse for their race every year . Under Obama Blacks have fared the worse in terms of jobs and income . They have lived for generations in these ghettos with the Dems telling them they care about them all the while nothing gets better . The Dems built that ..they built those ghettos and they did it with OUR Tax Dollars , They are like wholly owned subsidiaries of the DEM Party …Please enlighten everyone with your brilliance and tell me where and who that is wrong …While I speak in generalities it is the truth and you know it . When black people figure out you people are screwed .

          • Russell Byrd

            We have not forgotten them. At least not completely. You disgusting racist SOB. If your heroes supply enough jobs, or step aside and allow government programs to create them, then you might have an argument about entitlements. However, your solution to everything is to just set people out on the street, and let them starve. VERY Christian, very right-wing Christian at the very least.

            I bet you do not even know enough practical Economics to realize that Capitalism does not work when a nation has full employment. Wages go up and when people earn more there is not enough cash to screw the worker out of to keep a Capitalist happy. That is what is at the bottom of the immigration problem. Destroying the livelihood of the poor and desperate by attracting people that are even poorer and more desperate.

          • Russell Byrd

            Since you brought it up some time ago. Something about me running all the posters off. Well, that was a stupid attempt at spin. The real reason that few people are here is that this thread is dead, or near to it. People have moved on. Your trolling has backfired. We have been keeping you tied up here proving nothing and leaving decent people in peace.

          • old_blu

            Hello to you, and as Independent (he’s so awesome) so elegantly stated below they are already first in teen pregnancies.

          • bikejedi

            Yes their population will probably increase as innocent Babies are spared a death sentence . Maybe you people should educate people about lifestyle choices and safe sex . PP is only interested in killing babies and the genocide of the Black Race . 43% of all Black Pregnancies in NYC end in Abortion so Margaret Sengers original mission plan for PP seems to be coming to fruition . for those who don’t know she was the founder of PP and espoused killing off the Black Race . Her organization now has the blessing of the Dems and Liberals who funnel American tax Dollars to PP to achieve that goal . By the way a vast majority of Americans are against this funding not just Conservatives but a Majority of Americans

          • neeceoooo

            Again, as everyone here is saying, PP provides many things besides abortions. Get your head out of your A– and think before you post.

          • bikejedi

            You really believe that ????? Sure they do a little of that stuff …very little …What they mostly do is abortions and money laundering with our Tax dollars being donated right back to Dem Campaigns . This is a perfect reason that 1 Pols should not be the granters of public monies to their favored charities and 2 no non for profit that receives govt grants or tax dollars should be allowed to donate to a political campaign …But then your heroes would lose the ability to fund their own campaigns with our tax dollars so you will find some way to dispute that .

            My guess is less teenage pregnancies and less abortions. Would that bum you out?

          • Russell Byrd

            THERE WILL BE MORE PREGNANCIES. Actually, PROVEN everywhere, worldwide! You can’t make nature, and what humans have naturally don, go away with a wave of the hand, nor with your vicious rhetoric.

            What we need to do next, when the Texas economy collapses in the next ten years, is make sure that we identify those such as yourself, and hang the entire bill on you.

          • GreginPottsville

            How many teens in high school were pregnant, as a % before Rowe v Wade? What is that % now? Your second paragraph is irrelevant. In fact, so is the first.

          • Russell Byrd

            You do not actually know the answer do you? Actually, it was just as bad, but women had no freedom of choice. Two nice words that: Freedom . . . choice.

            And there is nothing in my posts that are irrelevant. Just something that should scare a bigot like you into crapping his nappies. The fact that you do not like something does not make it irrelevant. I mean, take this to the logical conclusion. YOU want things your way, then you should be made to wear the resulting FU.

          • GreginPottsville

            Well, I stand corrected. Teen pregnancies certainly were not higher before Rowe v Wade than they are now, so that blows your argument out of the water, and actually supports mine. You cry “what will these poor women do with these unwanted babies”. The stats tell you banning abortion wouldn’t increase teen pregnancy one iota. Why is that? A bit more personal responsibility. People actually can think for themselves. I know liberals find that hard to believe.

          • Russell Byrd

            You are a piece of shit. You tell a lie, you write about facts you do not have, and then claim that MY truth must after all support you. You dirty, cowardly koch sucker, you can post until the day you die, and I will still be here. I will welcome a moderator to come snooping about all the posts on an old thread, just to see where their bandwidth is going. You are one evil, little bullying, piece of shit. And I will be here to remind you of it.

            So is everyone who disagrees with your immature narrow minded intolerant ignorant views a Koch Sucker or a Troll ???? Now you know why it is hard to have an intelligent civil conversation cult like sheeple . By the way how tolerant do you think you sound to Gay Liberals ? I wonder why they don’t call you on your intolerance and hate ?Maybe they are just as Hypocritical as all Liberals and would rather remain silent then offend you .

            UNLIKE YOU, I hate very few. Your kind is the notable exception. That is why I am a Liberal and why I am concerned about the condition of my fellow human beings.

            course, to focus some of that limited attention span and lack of readingcomprehension you have. In other words, to verbally shake you to get your attention.

          • bikejedi

            Ok I get it justify your own hypocrisy …so that makes it right

          • Russell Byrd

            I have explained my reasoning in detail. You are the one trying to turn this into a case of hatred against gays. As I have said, I have not mentioned any members of that community at all. This is all about you.

            All you do is lie. You speak of my hypocrisy, that is enough to make me roll on the floor laughing. Anything to do with sex, that is not agreeable to you, you hate. Are you now implying that you love Gays?

            You brought this up. I never even mentioned the word. As I have said, this is about you. What do you do? As always, try to deflect onto someone else or a different issue that is not even part of the conversation.

            Hypocrisy, that argument is laughable and meaningless.

          • bikejedi

            You don’t have to try to spin this for me . you are a Hypocrite and should be proud as that is one of the hallmarks of your ilk . It will just increase your standing with other liberals …consider it resume enhancement . It seems you know you stepped in it and are trying to back peddle but you cant . You are intolerant towards gays …Just admit it …. I just hope you can convince a Gay Liberal as he is punching your face in

          • Russell Byrd

            Everything you have said has never been backed up with any fact
            whatsoever. Regardless, of how often you have been asked. You troll
            todisrupt and drive posters away so they will not have an opportunity to
            exercise their First Amendment rights. You do not read replies. You
            lie, twist, and spin constantly. You have never refuted anything said
            against you, either.

            Youcannot be so stupid to think you will
            convince anybody of anything. The people here are not inclined to lie,
            or trust those that do. So you CAN disrupt, but you will only harden
            their resolve. Never change their minds nor wake them up. In fact, you
            confirm all the bad things we see in your vile, evil platform. So
            there is nothing else to be said, but to drive you out.

          • Russell Byrd

            Stupid spin from a moron. I merely explained what should have been obvious. I hate you, no one else here is involved. Unlike yourself, I will take responsibility for my sins. You just spin onto someone else. At the end of the day, as I explained, nothing here was about Gays. YOU are the one that let that slip. You are the guilty one. I never even mentioned the word. I was just insulting a piece of garbage with an insult. You are the one that looks down on Gays. Why else would you come to that ready made conclusion. I am only interested in you. You think that you are all important. So we come full circle. You are a self-important, self-centered, egotistical, arrogant, and dishonest moron. Ignert you is. . . This is about you. You, you, and only you. Not Fern,not Obama, not even Perry anymore, not Gays, minorities, or women. Just YOU. Stand up, stand straight, and stand still, and take your own responsibility. I do not change nappies anymore. Yours are so full of s*it, they are dragging the floor.

          • bikejedi

            It isn’t me you have to convince but the next Gay guy who sees this and punches you out . Im guessing you don’t have any Gay friends . Hell Im guessing you don’t have any friends …When you find the time please come out of your mommies basement and take a shower…Baby cry waaaa baby cry waaaaa

            The lying bullies seem to have a fixation with sex. I wonder if that is because they have to since they have no sex lives.

          • GreginPottsville

            You really are one angry, potty-mouthed, intolerant left wing loon. Such a tough keyboard coward. Yawn…. I hope your day gets better.

          • Russell Byrd

            Angry, no, a man has to be worthy to earn my anger. As you are neither worthy nor a man, I feel only contempt for your inadequacies. Intolerant, keep lying. It is you that are intolerant. That is why you came here to troll. Your entire platform is about forcing an unwilling party to conform to your wishes.

            Left-wing, actually I am very much a centrist. To a teatard loon, everyone not three steps right of Hitler is a Pinko. Sick, stupid SOB you are.

            As for my day, it was fine, it is fine, and I am sure it will remain fine. You are a useless nuisance, but you have proven too stupid and unworthy to disturb me. Of course, to a “legend in his own mind” like you, you probably think you are accomplishing great deeds.

          • GreginPottsville

            You say I am not worthy (of what I am not sure), yet you took the time to go back and add and edit to this post (based on what is in my e-mail).
            Your first paragraph describes you and typical blind liberal sheep perfectly.
            I think Stalin considered himself a centrist.
            I am glad you are having a good day. I know deep down you appreciate the help I am giving you on seeing how closed minded you truly are.
            You are welcome, Russell.

          • Russell Byrd

            So if you think I am concerned, you are sadly mistaken and your arrogance has misled you into thinking that you have importance. Sorry, you are not hot s**t, rather only a little cold t*rd.

            One thing you goons are universally missing is coherent vocabulary and above all, a sense of humor. You take your worthless little life too seriously. Of course, it is all you have.

          • Russell Byrd

            I have said all I need to say before. That is why you have always been so welcome here. Of course, I jest. I will make any correction at anytime. What I change is just fine, so sorry about your rotten luck.

            I have said all I need to say before. That is why you have always been so welcome here. Of course, I jest. I will make any correction at anytime. What I change is just fine, so sorry about your rotten luck.

            I will tell you a little secret. As, unlike yourself, I try to make a
            useful, credible statement, I generally write the entire series on one post. Then I arrange it as I please. Picking at that technique shows only that you are a pure troll, and a bully, that you are only here to disrupt, and that you have no content even worth reading. Oh yeah, you
            demonstrate the behavior that we always called “anal.”

            As far as I am concerned, I am quite proud of the quality of my writing. Compared to a small-minded butt wiper like you that just wastes everyone’s time.

            .

          • Russell Byrd

            Pottyville, I think you right-wing scum are the most cowardly, bullying trolls ever created. You hate everyone. If I knew your chicken-s**t a** would show up, I’d give you my address. As it is I know you are all mouth, but no mind, all cock and no balls. So what would be the point with a yellow b*st*rd like you. Yeah, if you are calling me a coward, then you called yourself one too.

            You forget, all these conversations were started by you. You think you have an unlimited right of free speech that you are trying to deny to the clear majority of posters. So keep on trolling while you can.

          • GreginPottsville

            I find it strange how you offer me your address and mention my private parts all in the same comment. No thanks dude. This might sound weird to a lefty loon, but I am straight.

          • Russell Byrd

            Meaningless drivel, from a right-wing, dry f***ed sock puppet. Keep harassing. I do not mind putting you down repeatedly. If you are so important, and I am not, just think of how much of your sacred time you have spent getting your a** kicked by a serf like me. Keep trolling.

            And no one believes you are straight. You have constantly proven to be a closeted self-loather that cannot face the fact of his sexual orientation. Thus, your blatant homophobia. This time I am not joking!

            A fellow you may know, going by “jarheadjoe,” posted that pic. I thanked him profusely . . . as soon as I could get my jaw off the ground. That may be downloadable as is. I got it off another of the nationalmemo blogs.

            I guess I’m being bad. That guy does not look like he is ready for a “bike” ride.

          • Russell Byrd

            More spin and lies from our TROLL: “The stats tell you banning abortion wouldn’t increase teen pregnancy one iota.” You don’t even have any “stats,” and no one claimed that anyway. What was said was it will cause LESS pregnancies. What it will do is force more teens into desperate acts and leave more children that no one wants, and that includes YOU especially, in need. You are one dirty son of a b*t*h.

          • Independent1

            Only a true asshole would try to compare teen pregnancies today and teen pregnancies 60 years ago. Sex has become so much more open, in your face and something everybody does, over the past 20–30 years that only a true idiot would try to sell that bunch of total nonsense – get Real!!!!

          • bikejedi

            Freedom and choice except for the Innocent Baby who not only didn’t ask to be conceived but has no voice in the matter of its OWN body …You see it isn’t a womens body only …Unless you people cant count above one ( which might be the case judging by your lack of math skills ) there are two people involved in that but only one of them making the decision to end the others life …because why ???? a stupid lifestyle choice led to an inconvenience ????

          • Russell Byrd

            It is NOT your body, however. Maybe, women should vote for laws requiring scumbags like you to have a vasectomy. How would like those apples?

          • Russell Byrd

            SOB missed that one. I guess it was too hard to spin the obvious truth.

          • plc97477

            great idea!!!!

          • Independent1

            If pushing to pass laws that prohibit abortion will reduce pregnancies why does Texas (one of the states pushing to make abortion illegal and I believe one of the states that teaches abstinence in their schools) lead the nation in the percentage of the states teens that get pregnant. Your argument is nothing but a bunch of crap!!! Banning abortions will reduce nothing – not less pregnancies, not less abortions, not less women dying during botched abortions. Banning abortions will accomplish only ONE THING!!! IT WILL ONLY INCREASE THE DEATH RATE AMONG CHILDBEARING AGE WOMEN!!!!

          • Independent1

            Texas already leads the nation in teenage births – what’s going to happen if Texas eliminates abortion clinics is more teenagers and grown women are going to die during botched abortions done in back allies or old warehouses or in other places not designed for doing abortions. Just like before Roe vs Wade. There are too many poor women in Texas that won’t be able to afford going out of state to get an abortion and will seek one out on the black market – it’s only totally clueless idiots that think banning abortions is going to stop women from getting them. Banning abortions is not going to save any fetuses – it’s only going to end up driving up the death rate of you women. Republicans are idiots all!!!!!!!!!!

          • GreginPottsville

            Due to your anger, you failed to factor in the most important component of how it would lower teen pregnancies. The deterent is, failure to find an easy out (abortion).

          • Russell Byrd

            Since human kind first appeared we have had this “problem.” This is not something that started happening during the New Deal, for instance. Teen pregnancies have always been with us. All you propose is cruelty, lack of forgiveness, misery, and hardship. Speaking evil, doing evil, treating others with evil makes it safe to assume that you are, indeed, evil. . . .

          • GreginPottsville

            Actually the one promoting evil is you. First of all, if a teen is pregnant, we should show her love, not the nearest abortion clinic. Liberals always want the quickest solution no matter how evil it is. Secondly, teen pregnancies have increased dramatically due to abortions.

            Makes me wonder, would you have wanted Mary to have an abortion rather than Jesus? After all, it wasn’t a “right” or “choice” at that time.

          • Russell Byrd

            I wrote what was true. As well, I am not showing “her” anything. I am allowing her to do what YOU have repeatedly said you would not. Allow her to make her own decisions.

            This has been discussed on so many levels and so many ways. For example, women have abortions, regardless of the laws you petty despots write. That is just one example.

            Your pathetic, ignorant, and rather pointless spin just reinforces the view of you as a useless TROLL. You came here to dominate and disrupt, not to have a conversation. Your time to do that was gone within the first couple of filthy posts you made.

            I do not care what kind of evil spin an evil SOB like you resorts to. You are just a liar, bent on disruption.

          • bikejedi

            So Russell Is everyone that disagrees with your opinion a troll ? Cry baby moron

          • Russell Byrd

            No, but TROLLS like you only come here to dictate what we are allowed to think and say. That attitude will never agree on anything. Will never get along with anyone that differs. You have no talking points, but you demand acquiescence. Which, of course, will never occur.

          • plc97477

            What does ancient history have to do with anything? You do not obey HIS teachings, but you want to invoke his name to win a point. Regardless, you will not and cannot WIN any “points” here, no matter how long and hard you try.

            I will say this again in a different way. You are that disgusting chauvinist pig that most women dearly hate. You had your way when society closed every avenue to a woman except marriage and children. Now however, they do not have to listen to a weak, cowardly, bullying, dissatisfied, impotent freak like you, I cannot blame them for hating men like you. . . .

          • Independent1

            Come-on – you can’t be that dumb – there’s no such thing as no easy out abortion. If states ban abortion, there will be no shortage of charlatans around just waiting to provide abortions on demand. You conservatives live in your own make believe little world that you think you can control – how stupid!!!!!!!!!!!

          • GreginPottsville

            You liberals are too simple minded. Everything is black and white with you. 333,000 abortions by planned parenthood in one year. If abortions were banned, do you really think there would be 333,000 abortions performed on the black market? You libs are all about controlling the people, who you think are all robots. You are too arrogant and selfish to understand most people have brains and would take better precautions if they knew the couldn’t just drop by a Planned Parenthood abortion factory should a slip up occur. You people are really disgusting.

          • Independent1

            I’m not a liberal Gregin – I’m pushing a liberal agenda at the moment because the conservative agenda has become so asinine over the past 30 years – becoming nothing but akin to the Italian Mafia – with the GOP motto becoming “Let’s see how much we can steal from the taxpayers.”. This fake religious bias about concern over abortion and gay rights is all just a facade to cover up the thievery going on. And do I believe that there could be 333,000 abortions on the black market? Are you kidding!! You’re obviously not grown up enough to remember how things were before Roe vs Wade – before legal abortion clinics took all the quacks that could wield a coat hanger off the street. And have kept abortions from being done almost virtually on every street corner – actually back alley, warehouse, backyard shed, you name it. Talk about being clueless and not seeing the forrest for the trees- Wake up STUPID!!!

            And you talk about liberals “controlling” You have to be a sicko – it’s not the liberals that are trying to pass abortion laws right and left that will control families lives. It’s not liberals that are fighting tooth and nail against letting gays live their lives they way they want. It’s not liberals that are balking against passing any legislation that will make finding a job easier and get families out of living below the poverty level. You have to be the biggest dumbass I’ve come across on the National Memo – you don’t even know which way is up!!!!! Get Real!!!

          • GreginPottsville

            Sorry, but you are just one of the liberal sheep.
            Who exactly is not letting gays to live the lives they want? Please, I would love to hear this one.
            What legislation could possibly “make finding a job easier?” Haven’t the Dems been in power for quite some time? How exactly can gov’t “make finding a job easier” other than getting the heck out of the way?
            You don’t like me because I am not one of the blind sheep you are used to here. If you haven’t noticed, it is a far left site with far left loons commenting, for the most part.
            Democrats love keeping people at or below the poverty level. It gets them more votes.

          • Independent1

            Dems love keeping people below the poverty level??? What a joke!! Is that why 21 of the 23 states with more than 15% living below the poverty level are all RED STATES?? And that 8 of the 10 states with least living below the poverty level are all BLUE STATES?? And what planet are you living on?? Even though the SCOTUS said DOMA (a GOP piece of legislation) is unconstitutional; most Red States are trying to pass legislation that would block marriage equality – you really aren’t that clueless are you??? And the GOP House has been sitting on two of Obama’s jobs bills that would have created millions of jobs for over 2 years – you don’t call that blocking job growth???? Just more stupidity/cluelessness on your part!!!!

Most of the people who support DOMA are trying to protect the rights of people who believe in traditional marriage . You know the kind that Liberals want to discriminate against . There is also no guarantee that Obama’s plans would create a single job . I mean he isn’t the sharpest tool in the shed when it comes to that as there are far fewer Americans working now then when he took office . If you look at the DE Stimulus bill We are spending over `1 million per each temporarily funded job Obama created . Judging by his epic wreck of an economy he should go back to Community Organizing where his Lying and Excuse making skill set might be handy

            … And for what reason? In your own words their taking care of the poor, elderly and disabled. Think like a pub and determine just exactly what profit does it get them to ‘buy’ votes? No, they try to take care of those who can’t take care of themselves in a time when progress has frozen and jobs obsolete. Sure there’s some fraud just as there is corporate fraud but as I wouldn’t blame ALL corporations for the dirty tactics of a few, neither should you condemn those in need from the few who actually sponge.. These people are the responsibility of our g’ment’s monitoring.. they need to do their jobs, find the fraudsters and put them away in corporate prisons for the private sector to benefit. And before you come back with them taking your taxes to make a lazy moocher richer is BS.. Tell me, what do you think these taxes would be earmarked for should we allow congress to go completely insane and cut all welfare and poor man entitlements? If you said to lower the deficit then your lying to yourself as the proof has always been at the top and the lies, trickle down.

          • Russell Byrd

            I think with that statement that Liberals see everything as “black and white,” you have outdone yourself for “stoopid.” Your ilk sees everything as black and white. Your answer to any difficult question is to oversimplify. That is part of the problem with reasoning with you. The best answer is the one that gives you the most satisfaction. If down deep, you are vile and evil, then you will enjoy the vile and evil answer the most. Negotiation becomes impossible. Thus the situation in Washington we have right now. The liberal mind mulls over hard problems and finds choices very difficult at times. The liberal mind comes to decisions that, if not the best for everyone, at least do as little damage to anyone as possible. For instance, SNAP vs. a modest tax increase. The common good is what makes us happy. For you, pushing another human down into the mud makes you happy.

            Greg, Greg, jeeze this is so simple I think even you can get it.

            If you don’t believe in abortion don’t have one.

            If you don’t believe in abortion don’t have one.

            Meanwhile 43% of Black Pregnancies in NYC end in abortion . Those numbers would suggest that the Dems and the Liberals support Ms Sengers original vision for PP . Her goal was the genocide of the Black race . You do know that right ? And the bigger problem is two fold . 1 the Dems support baby killing with OUR Tax Dollars and many Dems that are Christians are against that as well and 2 The funding of PP is just a rouse to hide a Money laundering enterprise . I mean all you have to do is look at how much of OUR Tax Dollars PP donates right back to Dem coffers

            Well stooopid, few if anyone, is pro-abortion. Yet, pro-choice means that it is not my, nor your business what a woman decides to do with her own body. I guess I have a right to tell you when to have sex, or bathe, or eat, or whatever a creep like you does with himself? I do, don’t I?

            Really you stupid lying SOB here is the last lie you told me and until you come clean on this lie don’t talk to me “” “”I mean I can point to the vote fraud the left did in Ohio and Fla where there was over 100% turnout and in the 59 Philly precincts where there was not a single Romney vote”” “” Now work on that lie first then we can talk about your other lies. I’m only doing one lie at a time.
            Here’s what you can do. Prove what you said or admit you were lying, and until we get this lie figured out we are not taking up another one. Okay?
            That shouldn’t be to hard even for you to figure out how to handle, please don’t go over the edge this time last time you had me a little worried. Okay……… 3….2…1 GO!

            My biggest complaint about the Democratic party (all the way to the top) is they let these tea baggers get away with lying and bullying all the time instead of calling them out, and biker girl has lied to me already and until we get that lie sorted out I’m not taking on another one, and her credibility is in the toilet with me.

            I see you still don’t refute my claim. Okay, I can type slower if it helps this is what you said. (your words not mine) “I mean I can point to the vote fraud the left did in Ohio and Fla where there was over 100% turnout'” you said you could prove it. All you have to do is do what you said you’d do, and then we can move on to another one of your lies, I’m not even going to take up the one on here until you prove the last one. Your credibility is really in the toilet until you come clean on the last lie.

            BTW *SLAP* I work 11 hours a day running a small automotive repair shop, that keeps four good mechanics making a good living as well, so wrong again, if you want to spread more lies (that you’re so good at) about something, or someone you should do it about someone you know.

            You said you could prove that what you said was true you haven’t done that. Now you want me to prove it for you? If you’re saying you can’t do it, and this libtard is right, and that you lied we can move on to the next lie. Is that what you are saying? Because I am really ready to move on, just come clean.

            And you’re lying again you’ve never provided a link like you said you did/could, I on the other hand have provided two links that proved you were lying.

            And if he does, it won’t be any good. He is just here to vent his puny anger and disrupt. He sees himself as the lord of the manor, completely entitled to do as he pleases. I am sure he feels he is the white knight on a white horse slaying liberal infidels.

          • old_blu

            You’re right, and I should just leave it alone but like I told Fern my main complaint about the Democratic party is the fact they let these lying bullies (like bike girl) walk all over them, and I’m going to make him tell me the truth or we aren’t moving on to one of his new lies.

          • Russell Byrd

            I know you are absolutely right. We all too often sit back and let them just walk on us. We cannot use the tactics that the right-wing does. When you are a stupid bully, you can do anything you want, because you are always justified. For someone with a working conscience and enough empathy to understand the other person’s position, we know that causing pain is not right. I think that is changing a lot, driven in part by the crazier and crazier ideas of the Teanderthals. I think our real problem at this time, is finding leaders that are willing to return right-wing nonsense in kind. One of the reasons I do like Joe Biden. He is certainly not perfect, but he is able to stay with the crazy-trainers in a fight. I think that is why it is so important to the right-wing to make out that Biden is stupid. They fear, so they must rig the game in advance.

            I just do not want to be remembered as that “accidental troll.” That is being a little too kind to myself. I really am not at all arrogant, which has seemed to make me an occassional target for bullies in general. Unfortunately for them, whether physical or virtual, bullies usually leave me with their eyes watering. I take a lot, too much really, but then I surprise them with an all out sh*t hemorrhage. They really hate me for that, because they never expect it. So I guess it is time for Plan X, though I haven’t a clue what that is.

            Last night, trikegirl posted repeatedly to the several crazy-train right wingers that frequent here. I told him I knew what she was doing. Calling for help! She then told me about all the silent posters that had agreed with her and were encouraging him to “give it to me” or something similar. She claimed her inbox was completely full with them. I nearly keeled over laughing at that. Like I told her, most of those messages were probably replies from us, and ashamedly, too many were from me.

            This trikegirl even lies to give it a rationale for existence. Isn’t that delusional? Lying to oneself?

            Now after you get that lie straightened out we can be friends and talk about riding and all the rides I’ve taken all over the United States, and what bikes I like and that I’ve been riding longer than you’ve been alive, but fix this lie first. I’m sorry we can’t be friends until you FIX THIS LIE. My biker buddies as ugly as they are never lie, and that should be something you should try, you’ll be a better person for it.

            once again with the gay jokes and disrespect … No Im not gay so I wont need those …But it sounds like you speak from experience when you say ” When you have your little party today, wear your knee pads. In the heat of the moment, those kind’s of little soirees tend to get a little hectic.” …is that what happens at your party’s ….wow …at the ones I go to I have a good time and usually flirt with girls …Pretty ones not like the one you say is pretty …who did you say was way attractive again ….oh that’s right Rachel Madcow ….No wonder you need knee pads at your party’s eeee oooooyuckyyy

          • Russell Byrd

            Everyone has different tastes, but there was ABSOLUTELY NO REASON to bring up Rachel Maddow at all. Totally off-topic, but a totally typical right-wing tactic of finding someone to slur to make a point. You have proven that you are not only homophobic, but misogynistic as well. Otherwise, you would never have mentioned that shit to begin with. Very “Rush” I might add. I know that is the hero you got that spoon fed nonsense from.

          • bikejedi

            Don’t blame me because you find her to be gorgeous ??? That’s on you not me …If you think that makes you Gay I have no problem with your Gayness K …. And RUSH is the greatest band ever ….cool …listen to the song the Trees …it is a metaphor for the failures and shared misery of Socialism

          • Russell Byrd

            I told the truth. It is not “on me” at all, but actually on you. It is not an issue with me. It is you that are scared shitless because you are afraid everyone you know will figure out you are a closet fairy. Guess what, if you acted civilized, I would treat you just like any of my friends. You being gay, does not offend me at all, nor does it give me the self-loathing disgust that you have for yourself and other gays. You see, in my world there will always be room for you, but in your world, if someone is not a racist and a bigot, you have no room for them. No jokes this time. ALL serious.

          • Russell Byrd

            Like I said, totally off-topic. You will get no where with the slurs. As a real man, “Gay” does not bother me. I do not have to partake of a different lifestyle and I am not threatened by those that do. Being different is just a part of life. If you haven’t noticed you are the one that is so upset about this. Of course, I do not hate anybody that does not propagate hate.

            Don’t you get it. Straight men do find Rachel Maddow attractive. You hate her because she is a Lesbian. Otherwise, there is no issue where she should even be brought up. Despite your lame spin defaming a good band, your hero Rush Limppud hates gays and he despises any woman that he cannot use for a doormat. If you were not like him, and you had even half a brain, you would stay away from him. And Fake Noise too. You have demonstrated that you cannot think for yourself. These wackjobs are filling your head with s**t and killing your brain cells.

          • Russell Byrd

            I did not make any gay jokes. As I have said, you are the one being disrespectful. I DID admittedly make a number of trikegirl jokes, but you are the one that wants to bring up all the gay comments and disrespect. I am just using your bigotry against you.

            AND I stand by my original post. Hetero men that do not have an ingrained fear that they are gay themselves, i.e. truly hetero men, think Rachel Maddow is gorgeous. Yes, there is an implied insult in that statement.

          • bikejedi

            There you go again ruining your own credibility ..look I feel bad for you and tried to help you out because the more you post the more ridiculous you sound …Rachel Madcow is gorgeous ???? to who …Gay men ???? Guys who are suppressing homo sexual urges and like Boys ????? Other gay women that I can see but not hetero males ….Why don’t we do a poll of the Straight guys on here …even the Liberals straight guys …so guys who would you rather spend the night in bed with …Rachel Madcow or Elizabeth Hassleback ????? How about Michele Malkin …or any girl on Fox ???? Any takers for Rachel …I mean besides Russell ????

          • Russell Byrd

            Why are you fixated with Rachel Maddow. Many straight men do find her attractive. No one proposed to date her. The only reason that you have to claim she looks like a boy is your own fear of your latent, closeted homosexuality. Otherwise, you would just take an admiring look and move on down the road. This can only be an issue if you are a self-loathing homophobe. You are only proving you are indeed gay with this fixation to slur Rachel Maddow.

            About any girl on Fox, uh-uh, I hear they have not even invented the antibiotic for that kind of clap and I do not want to bathe in kerosene to get rid of the crabs. Sorry, it’s all for you.

          • Russell Byrd

            As I have already explained twice before. I did compare your picture with what my neighbor’s dog left in the yard. Now I know that you must have been living in the dog’s digestive tract. That makes you a neighbor. WELCOME to the neighborhood. Do not worry, the dog is one of those that eats s**t. So you will not be homeless tonight.

            You know, another thing about that picture. The best that I can tell, you are far from an impressive woman. You are a little bit dumpy, if you ask me.

          • Russell Byrd

            Rachel Maddow, huh? I do not know one re-blooded male that does not think she is a fabulous looking woman. Yes, she is a Lesbian, but normal men find her stunning. And very, very smart. I can see how weak kneed guys like you and Rush would be frightened of her.

            So, now I understand your carrying on about one of my comments. As I have said, the comment made no direct sexual reference. I made NO reference to anyone that was Gay. I never even mentioned Gay, or homosexual, or etc.

            However, since you are Gay, I can see where my analogy might have hit a little too close to home. I sincerely apologize for the unintended slur and any hanky time you spent grieving over it.

            I hope none of our ladies are offended by my being blunt with trikejerk. Apologies if I am. . . .

            Out of consideration for everyone out there Im going to try to help you out . You need to stop posting because with comments like that you lose ALL CREDIBILITY .

Rachel looks like a cross between Will Wheaton when he played Wes Crusher on STNG and Matthew Perry …Give me a freaking break . No hetero man would find her attractive …Gay men would however because she looks like a femmie little boy …You just have just tainted everyone of your posts with that observation ….

          • Russell Byrd

            As for stopping posting, no. . . . I had thought to stop addressing you, and I will soon, but I will ALWAYS be here to reply to you. I may just not bother to debunk your garbage.

            However, as I have pointed out several times. I only bully the bullies. You can choose to stop at any time, and be done. I realize you will not do that, but I am puzzled at what you are trying to accomplish. Truly, you are “waking people” up. The more ignorant lies you post, the more support the “Progressives” get. I would rather find something different to do, but what the hey, you are tailor made to be righteously abused.

          • Russell Byrd

            My first post stands. If I said shit stank, you would post all night
            about the sweet smell. I think gay men might really want to take a
            baseball bat to your bigoted head. You just suggested that gays are
            molesters, like it or not. I only bring it up because a hypocrite like
            you would spin an insult against your own behavior as an insult against
            the gay community. You have to be careful being such a liar and
            hypocrite. You spin a passing remark about yourself back as a major
            insult, but then you overtly show your true colors as a bigot.

            About that picture. When I joined Facebook I did not have a photo at hand. Soon I got into a discussion on a local newspaper blog, with one of your genetic throwback compatriots. He raved and raved about my lack of a picture.

            What picture did he have? YOSEMITE SAM. I decided then, that I did not need a picture. If that is a major talking point with you, then you have surrendered any rationale for being here.

            Actually, no one can really see much of what you really look like in that tiny icon. Even enlarged, it just gets blurry. What I can see is not at all impressive. I work in an office with a lot of sedentary people and you look typically like they do.

            I spoke the truth, verbatim. Something you think is a joke. Your motto is: Tell all the lies I can, even if the truth makes more sense.

            In general, all you have done is confirm you are not only a liar, and a bigot, but mentally deficient as well.

            Thanks for continuing to be off-topic, and a liar, and for bringing in Obama, just like any racist SOB would do. You have been called on that, time and time again.

            I will be a little arrogant. I am a very humble man, so I try hard never to be arrogant. Of course, for a girl like you, arrogance is quite natural. Unfortunately, not only is arrogance generally a negative trait, but ignorance is never far behind.

            So, I am happy, very happy, with the body of work I have addressed to you. You have failed to make any point of value, you lie constantly, and I have called you on your lies, with considerable skill and humor. Go ahead and spin. You merely confirm your mental and emotional deficiencies with every post you make. The technique of out-right stealing ideas does not improve the impression our other readers will get from your posts.

            When you cannot prove what you say, then you blab, blab, blab “common sense”. However, if you are an ignorant, uneducated, parrot, you cannot discern what common sense is.

            You’ve got to be a male. It is easy to say no abortions if you are not going to be needing one.

          • GreginPottsville

            I guess that would make sense except my wife happens to be more outspoken of a pro-life advocate than I. You wouldn’t last a minute debating her.

          • neeceoooo

            Hi there friend, and it is not just poor women getting abortions but they are also getting contraceptives to prevent the pregnancy in the first place.

          • neeceoooo

            How does less pregnancies (regardless whether they are teenage or not) or less sexual transmitted diseases sound. They also provide cancer screening for cervical and testicular cancers. Vasectomies, tubal ligations, sex education as well as menopause education are other services that are provided through a PP, you are really living under a rock if you think this country does not need these things.

          • GreginPottsville

            Less pregnancies than when? Than before Rowe v Wade? I don’t think soooo. Nice try. Would you be ok if Planned Parenthood stopped abortions? Because that is all we are saying. Nobody that I know of is advocating stopping cancer screenings, tubal ligations, etc. Do you?

          • idamag

            What makes you think there were less pregnancies then? Back then a lot of first babies were premature.

          • tax payer

            Planned Parenthood is not for every women in this country. Most women have good loving husbands that will be there from the beginning to the end.

          • Independent1

            Do you even realize that less than 5% of what PP does for women is related to abortions?? I seriously doubt it. They do far more for women in providing breast cancer screenings and other health related issues for women that could otherwise not afford the care.

          • bikejedi

            You base that on the fudged accounting numbers PP submits to hide the massive money laundering they do and to also make themselves look like they do other things beside abortion …Ever been in a PP location ? I have twice to escort friends who were having abortions ( and no they weren’t mine I make mature lifestyle choices ) I think an independent survey found they had 2 chest xray machines nation wide although I could be wrong on the number . All this fudged accounting was done by PP so liberals who don’t understand acct and allocation of resources would be fooled into supporting that false rhetoric …the one that goes PP does much more then abortions

          • Russell Byrd

            What a load of crap. And as always, statistics that DO NOT EXIST support a theory that MAKES NO SENSE to a sensible person.

            For you, lack of evidence is actually proof. When was the last time you had an alien abduction.

            In Internet slang, a troll (/ˈtroʊl/, /ˈtrɒl/) is a person who sows discord on the Internet by starting arguments or upsetting people,[1] by posting inflammatory,[2] extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community (such as a forum, chat room, or blog), either accidentally[3][4] or with the deliberate intent of provoking readers into an emotional response[5] or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion.[6]

          • Russell Byrd

            What do you base so spacious statements on? Did aliens reveal these facts to you? Obviously, you are just making this crap up to give a rationale for the lying and trolling that you do.

            Looks like I am hitting the right nerves. Truth has that way of affecting liars. If I am crying at all, it is from tears of laughter at your pathetic stupidity.

            bikejedi is a kid. If not, then a case of arrested development. Certainly not well educated.

          • Russell Byrd

            You do have a point.

            I think I am going to go ahead and do something I swore I would not do. I am going to let him “win.” That is all he wants and if we quantify what he has won, the value would equal zero. Nil, nada.

            I do this after someone here gently prodded me about their method of dealing with our young lady. As well, I had several colleagues ask if I might not be becoming an “accidental troll.” In other words, consideration for others outweighs my right to use this idiot for a punching bag. It was fun, but it does not advance the discussion.

            So, I am still going to set him straight on occasion, but I am going to adopt the tactic of sending him one reply informing him of his motivations and irrelevance. As well, I will point out his history here and just how unwelcome he is. I will simplify his lying efforts, by saying very little about the issue at hand.

            Life becomes simple and satisfying that way

          • old_blu

            Maybe “arrested development” but she’s no kid.

            Talk about pitiful. Is that the best you’ve got? You are obviously trying to deflect the fact that YOU are the cry baby. As I told you before, if I am crying at all, it is tears from laughing so hard at your continued, but lame and inept, attempts at posting here.

            As for Fern, she is doing quite well. She is not at all incoherent. She only lacks tolerance for your intolerance. Her conversation is highly intelligent. And the rants you mention. Oh my Lord, I understand exactly why anyone would take that tone with you. You have failed to make any points here at all, but like the consummate TROLL, you just continue to disrupt and lie and spin.

            I have even explained why we respond as we do. What did you do? Post even more lies? You have never been welcome, but you have had your say. You can stop this anytime you please, but you won’t.

            No Fern isn’t responding to intolerance she just starts to swear at anyone who has the gall to disagree with the Liberal agenda …don’t try to put that horse in front of the cart …and if you think she has any intelligence that shows a lot . If Fern is an intelligent poster then it makes perfect sense why Liberal is becoming synonymous with low information …Thank you for making my point . You can stop posting as well …take your own advice you just keep making yourself sound and look more and more like Fern

          • Russell Byrd

            Everything you have said has never been backed up with any fact whatsoever. Regardless, of how often you have been asked. You troll to disrupt and drive posters away so they will not have an opportunity to exercise their First Amendment rights. You do not read replies. You lie, twist, and spin constantly. You have never refuted anything said against you, either.

            You cannot be so stupid to think you will convince anybody of anything. The people here are not inclined to lie, or trust those that do. So you CAN disrupt, but you will only harden their resolve. Never change their minds nor wake them up. In fact, you confirm all the bad things we see in your vile, evil platform. So there is nothing else to be said, but to drive you out.

          • bikejedi

            On the contrary Everything I have posted is factual or can be deduced using even a small amount of common sense . I have cited articles and the best breakdown of numbers to support my case . You have responded with talking points feelings and Fern like intolerance and name calling . Im quite sure that anyone who reads this thread that isn’t one of the cult will see that . That is why I continue to fight your evil anti American anti 1st amendment agenda …

            I will throw another observation in for free, . . . again. Those that have no emotion and no empathy are by definition sociopaths.

            I will give you another little hint. You want whatever makes you happy. You are a vile, evil creature, therefore, vile and evil things are what you desire. On the other hand, I see and understand most of what you see. Yet, even if I do not like something, there is a such thing as right and wrong, and what is best for the people and the nation. Having your views does no one any good. So I will continue with truth, knowledge, common sense, and yes, emotion as my tools. You can keep your hate, bigotry, racism, and lies as yours. You will eventually lose, badly. If you do not, then we will all lose. That includes you.

          • Russell Byrd

            No she is responding to intolerance. You have said your peace. You have been debunked. Yet, you continue to hammer falsehoods at people that will never agree with you. You do this to disrupt and deny others their right of free speech. You willfully interfere with free thought, though you cannot conceivably make the changes you want. Hitler tried it, Stalin as well, your entire wants are futile, but you are just that stupid.

            Where do I fit in? Like I have said again and again, I do not often post, but as I despise arrogance and ignorance, lies and the liars that tell them, and cowardly bullies, you have motivated me to stay on top of you until you are sick of this. Those that know me know this will NEVER end. This was over last night, DONE, but you just have to keep trolling though any idiot knows it is futile. Who are you trying to convince, with right-wing lies, in a group frequented by progressive, intelligent minds. Don’t bother trying to “wake” anyone up. Only an idiot would think that is possible.

            Your problem is one of compulsion and mental illness. Beyond that, you have no chance to succeed. You just had the misfortune to meet someone that does not believe you have the rights you believe, when you are unwilling to recognize the same rights for others.

          • bikejedi

            I will always be here, trollbaby.

            You are the one that is out of place. You did not come here to
            wake anybody up. You came here to disagree. The couple of links you posted are bogus. In fact, the evidence against one of your prime points is right in the article. Of course, we all know you did not come here to read anyway. You just came to disagreee. A child’s math site. You cannot even post a link correctly.

          • Russell Byrd

            Figures. As I suspected, you are just a rich daddy’s boy that has never done a day’s work in your life. You hate anyone that does not see the world as you, because you feel that you should have had an even easier and freer ride. The world is all about you. I got that long ago.

            I realize you are just trying to blitz your way into control of these threads. That will never happen. Only an infantile mind will think that one can. You are just here to prove you are an a-hole. A very entitled one, in you own mind, but an a-hole nevertheless.

            Just think, if I really am living in my mom’s basement, and have no real life, and as you are a very important person that has such a fulfilling life, of course at the expense of others. Then I have accomplished something grand. You are wasting that precious time of yours trying to convince me, and others, of total freaking lies. In fact, you have proven that you are just an a-hole. BUT you are spending YOUR time here with me and you are not elsewhere, invading someone else’s life. Win-win for me. Worthless me stops you. And all you have done is convince everyone that you are an a-hole! And I am providing a public service as well.

          • Russell Byrd

            Low information, once again you lie about everything. The couple of attempts you have made to cite evidence were false. In fact, ridiculous.

            Now, did you look up info about our good Marine? Guess not? Did you find out anything about Cuban history? Guess not?
            Did you learn anything about basic economics besides Faux News crypto spin? Guess not?
            Ever hear of supply and demand? Understand production and raw material supply?

            Yeah, I already know. You think economics is about profit. I bet you do not even know what the definition of profit even is. I bet you would crap all over yourself if you knew who defined it.

            So who is the low information type here? Well, I know 100 times over that I will not get a straight answer.

          • bikejedi

            I really wonder if you realize how dumb you sound . Im betting there are many intelligent Liberals on here that wish you would Shut up . You are making them all look bad in a manner I thought only Fern was capable of … Do I know about Supply and demand you ask as if that is profound ??? Don’t they teach that in like 4th grade ??? So Im talking and pointing out Acts and Policy that affected the economy and you are asking me if I know stuff I learned in 4th grade and using that as the measuring stick as to someone understands economics ???? Yes you sound ridiculous

          • Russell Byrd

            I don’t think they teach supply and demand in the 4th grade. Not in a meaningful way. You only demonstrate that a real education was too beneath you to spend the time getting one. Of course, as you already “know it all” you do not need any guidance, except from Rush (either one) or Fake News. Of course, education would cut into the time you can spend sniffing other riders a. . . .

          • idamag

            And part of that supply and demand is the ability of the consumers to demand supply. The more money the working people have, the more they buy and the more taxes they pay. They are the vital force driving the economy.

          • Russell Byrd

            Well said.

          • Russell Byrd

            You explained that so concisely, why can’t the wingers understand. They always claim to be so economically inclined. Of course, as always, when someone is that stupid they cannot comprehend their own stupidity.

            Russell, I’m beginning to get convinced that bikejedi, like Lana Ward, like Mike, like montanabill and a number of other totally incoherent posters on the National Memo are nothing but paid trolls that work for the RNC (probably out of one of their facilities) with their only intention being, as you pointed out, of disrupting any commonsense discussions that the majority of the “normal intelligence” National Memo posters would like to exchange amongst ourselves. To me, there’s no other rational reason why total idiots would come on the NM and spout such blatant distoritions and lies that bear no semblence of reality. I find it hard to believe that there are really this many totally screwed people out there that have such deluded, moronic minds as what these idiots portray without them actually working to create confusion and anger amongst those of us posting on these blog threads. I’ve decided to no longer to respond to the babblings of these idiots that are just over the top crazy – and with bikejedi, that’s virtually everything that is posted – it’s total unadultlerated craziness.

            I totally agree. I also realize there is nothing to be gained from replying to him, but I have always been one for finishing jobs. He is such a self-centered, selfish, spoiled little snob and I am so valueless in his eyes. You would think he would realize that he is getting no value returned by continuing to remain. Like having Stephen Hawkins mop floors because you might have to pay the janitor 30 minutes of overtime. Except that he is a mental midget, and does not have any sense. Common or otherwise.

            Some thoughts.

            My fear with biketroll is, what will happen if we leave the light on for them. He has only come to file his little grievances. He is not here to discuss, but to dictate. That alone shows something sinister. He will never be satisfied until he breaks this board up. If this were a right-wing group, I would have been banned long ago. Of course, that shows why the so-called liberal media never existed. There is news, of varying quality and bias, and then there is their right-wing versions. The only difference in THEIR media is just how crazy and mean they can be.

          • Russell Byrd

            I have mulled over your advice and have decided to adopt my own version of your method. The good of the group outweighs my enjoyment at using our young lady as a verbal punching bag.

            More pure BS from a totally cluelless GOP lover that carries fourth the Republican mantra of spew lies and distortions at every opportunity. PP provided their medical and other services to more than 5,000,000 women this past year; of that they treated a bit under 300,000 women for abortions (about 6% of the women who came to them). They also estimate that they prevented over 200,000 abortions through their counseling efforts and theyproject that they prevented more than 450,000 other women from possibly seeking abortions through the contraceptives they provided to keep women from having unwanted pregnancies.

          • bikejedi

            And you believe PP and their allocation math ?????? Wow …just wow . It doesn’t seem that Im the clueless one now does it

          • plc97477

            Only the right lies and distorts the truth. The rest of the world is pretty honest.

          • bikejedi

            Oh and PP doesn’t launder the money Obama gives them right back into his Campaign ????? Have you seen the donations they made to him ????? No non for profit should be allowed to make Political Donations if they accept Govt grants . It sets up an incestuous relationship of money laundering .

          • Russell Byrd

            You are right on one count. All those “Tea” (Kool-Aid) drinking political action groups masquerading as charities should never have been approved. They should not be allowed to peddle influence in our election process. Ditto for those thieving Koch brothers.

          • bikejedi

            Yes because in your gestapo version of America only those who agree with the Dem party should be able to do that …Right …Like the Public Unions doing it with our tax dollars or the UAW to peddle influence or a donor looking for a favor or George Soros right …so much for the 1st amendment if you Commie Nazis had your way

          • Russell Byrd

            The Gestapo, by definition, is one of your organizations. The amount of money in every union in the country is a small drop in the bucket compared to the Koch brothers. And guess what, a union really is composed of people, unlike your hero thieving corporations. George Soros has nothing to do with the topic at hand. As a troll you have been trying to destroy the First Amendment rights of everyone here. Lies and spin and deflection and vicious disruption are your tools.

          • bikejedi

            Ok So Public Unions laundering OUR money to ONE Party is very Nazi like as compared to Private Citizens using THEIR OWN money to do that …See the difference …And you brought up the Koch Brothers so I countered with Soro’s …see how that works ..Oh that’s right common sense again confuses you

          • Russell Byrd

            Everything you have said has never been backed up with any fact whatsoever. Regardless, of how often you have been asked.

So there is nothing else to be said, but to drive you out.

          • Russell Byrd

            First, have somebody that is not a stir-fried crazy teatard read that first sentence. See the difference . . . yeah you are wasting my time making no coherent point at all. OK, so I will guess what you tried to say.

            “As for public unions laundering OUR money . . .” Only another evil teatard will not understand what is wrong.

            There is no evidence of money laundering. You will not find much in the way of credible evidence. Notice I did not say none, but that is exactly what those Teanderthal non-profits do all the time. As the evidence is showing.

            Next, that is not your money, but theirs. That is at the crux of our problem. Yours is yours, and mine is yours to dispose of as you please. That includes every woman’s body, but no one has a right to tell YOU what to do.! Your sovereign, but the rest of us are your serfs.

          • bikejedi

            WTF your post makes NO sense …Libtard

          • Russell Byrd

            So the fact that the public unions work for you mean you can tell them how to live, what to say, and what to believe in? Very Teapublicon! Your arrogance and ignorance is only exceeded by your ingrained stupidity.

            There is NO evidence of money laundering. . . . That is just another slogan spoon fed to you that makes you feel so much more entitled than the rest of the public. Stupid and mentally ill. No empathy = sociopath. Make everyone else produce more so you can live free. Or is that for free.

            After re-reading my own post, I realize only a self-important, evil moron would not be able to understand it. How stupid are you, . . really? Did you get up still stoned this morning?

            I know people who spend most of their days stoned and they are smarter than bikejedi.

          • Russell Byrd

            Sorry, you are so right. I owe an apology to stoned people everywhere. Sure, I am joking, but I really DO owe an apology.

          • Russell Byrd

            You are SO right. I guess I can change and let this slide. I do not want to be known as an “accidental troll.” So, I will change tactics. I am starting to act like her. She thinks this is all about her, but I know it is about WE. So I will try to reign in the excess posts.

            Ya got any PurduePop. I could stay up all night for some of that. Of course, it probably hasn’t been available in years, but I can dream. Most of that was hull less and it did not get under my gums.

          • idamag

            He made sense to me. You don’t. You are like a tape recorder playing back the old myths. Just so you know, Hitler and the Nazis were good at diving and conquering their government. They used people, like you, and look what happened to Germany.

          • Russell Byrd

            As I said above, the industrialists were the real power behind Hitler’s rise. They are the reason Hindenburg appointed him Chancellor. That was what “business” wanted. His platform was exactly what they had been looking for. They saw him as an unsophisticated “Bohemian Corporal” that would do their bidding. Looks like they chose poorly.

          • idamag

            That is true. Some big businesses in the UK and the US also supported him.

          • Russell Byrd

            Yeah, I guess that slipped my mind. Henry Ford was a recipient of one of Hitler’s medals.

            Thank you for making my point ..Now compare that with Obama the Dems and his cult like followers and draw your own conclusion …Oh never mind you will just say it is Republicans who are doing all of that .

          • Russell Byrd

            Since you mentioned, ” it is Republicans who are doing all of that,” will just leave it at that.

            How long did it take you to clean up that INBOX, sweetum’s?

            And I did as you requested. I compared your photo with what my neighbor’s dog left in the yard. Yep, you must have been living in the dog’s intestinal tract. WELCOME neighbor!

            Not to fear, that dog does eat s**t, so you won’t go homeless tonight.

          • Russell Byrd

            I will just have to guess what that incoherent rant was about. I really am rather generous, so I will not give you any lower marks than I usually do. As for the smackdown:

            Bwwwwwwwwwwwaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!

            It took me five minutes, just to right this. I was laughing just too hard. Still am! Like I said, Welcome Neighbor!

          • bikejedi

            Yeah, look at all that special interest money going to Republicans. Ten of the top fifteen political donors in the past 24 years are unions, and their average donation percent to Democrats is 82.2%. But yeah, corporations are not people and their donations should be capped. Unions, however, are people and they should not be limited….zerohedge.com

          • Russell Byrd

            You’re busted. You made that up. And I said, limit them all, LIAR. I say it again, limit them all. Oh yeah, you are still a LIAR.

            Do you think you are going to win something here? What if you do but you have to sell your soul to get it? More Americans, that is the MAJORITY, hate your mob because of your job destroying policies. Of course, you still believe in the high profit polices.

            Come to think of it, unions ARE composed of people as the Founding Fathers proclaimed. One man, one vote. Corporations normally vote by share blocks. One Kock bro millions of votes. Does seem you are right about unions not being limited. “Unions, however, are people and they should not be limited….

          • bikejedi

            Busted ????/ Liar ???????I didn’t make up anything I cited the very reliable zerhedge.com research …..You know everytime you post Fern is dancing in a corner …Because you have unseated her as the dumbest Liberal ever . She is now number two . Nothing I said was a Lie . I repeated zerohedges findings …by the way they have never been proven wrong with their number crunching . It is one of the reasons Investors Business Daily as well as the WSJ cite their research on matters of finance .

          • Russell Byrd

            You are totally out of context about public unions. They are composed of people that have guarantees of their rights. Unfortunately, employers usually ignore those rights anyway. More importantly, I made no comparison between unions and Nazis. You and Nazis, certainly.

            Giving the money to one party. THAT is their right. Once again, you do not wish to allow one group what you consider your own rights as a citizen.

            “Oh that’s right common sense again confuses you,” Once again, you ARE.

          • bikejedi

            Man no one can be that stupid . Yes Public Unions are people just like Corporations . The difference is that Public Unions are our paid public servants ….WE the Tax Payer pay them …so that probably excludes most of you as a lot of you are on welfare . Anyway since WE pay them I don’t think it fair that they then take my Tax Dollars and donate them back to one Party . In Illinois that has been a recipe for disaster . They get these people elected and then the Pols give them whatever they want at Tax Payer expense . Now if the individual Union member wants to support a candidate I have no problem with that . You see the basic difference between Private citizens donating and corporations donating is that they do it with THEIR money , not OURS .

          • Russell Byrd

            It is THEIR money by your own admission. The rest of your post is totally irrelevant based on your own conclusion. The union can give that money to anyone they feel better represents their interests. Sound familiar. A union is formed of people, in this case as REAL individuals, not as a block of shares. As such, your argument proves the opposite of what you desire.

            Union: One man = one vote.
            Corp: One man = as many votes as his money and shares can BUY! Not every shareholder has the same political views as the Koch brothers. Or didn’t you know that already.

            Why don’t we ban all political contributions over 100 dollars. From anyone. Will you go for that when your billions from rich donors goes out the window.

            All unions together would be a drop in the sea of Koch money. And the Koch’s can keep all that money by buying our laws, voters, and lawmakers. On a level playing field we would have disenfranchised the Koch’s as a danger to our Democracy. Your kind see them as the vehicle for your pair-a-dice on earth. Funny thing is, when you get your way, the 80% whose lives you have destroyed will probably rise up and kill all of you. Then they will take what you have stolen. This is only a lose-lose situation.

          • plc97477

            We, tax payers may pay the public employees but we do not have the right to dictate how they will spend that money when they get it.

          • Russell Byrd

            I think that is the whole problem with the right-wing. There are so many defects in their personalities that it is frightening. They are border line sociopaths with god complexes. Trikejedi really thinks that someone else has a “right” to have their life run by him.

            And thanks, for the real statistic about PP. I could not remember the real number, so I guessed 1% for effect. I was a little lazy on that one.

            No real difference, except to evil minds like yours. On the contrary, unions are formed of working people. By definition, they are not rich people trying to leverage our markets by buying elections.

            I know, education and real intelligence, truth and reason just cause spasms in the right-wing. As for common-sense, I seem to be the only one that knows what it is. Your version is simply: What (extra) is in it for me.

          • idamag

            As I said before, present your irrefutable facts instead of canned rhetoric.

          • plc97477

            Unions do not do anything with public monies. Their money is from dues.

          • bikejedi

            Boy that was naïve ???? where do the dues come from ???? OUR TAX DOLLARS …which in Illinois are already taken out and paid straight to the Union Leadership so they can turn right around and donate that right back to the Dems in Illinois … You don’t know this stuff ????????

          • idamag

            Again, another lie. Union members pay dues and they have to vote on their dues being used as a campaign donation. If you opt to have your cable bill paid on direct pay out of your bank account, that does not mean the bank is paying your cable bill. If union members opt to have their dues taken from their paycheck, that means it is already their money and stays their money. You are way over your head on this board.

          • bikejedi

            Wrong….. It’s hard to have a conversation with you . In Illinois those Tax Dollars that go to Union employees are automatically deducted and paid right to the Union leadership . The Public Employee never sees that money so they never miss it nor do they realize whether they are getting their monies worth for those dues . The Tax Payer gets to pay those Taxes that go to those dues and also pay for the bureaucracy and people to administer those deductions …You are way over your head on this board …Way over ..

          • bikejedi

            Idamag zerohedge.com did a survey of political donations

            Yeah, look at all that special interest money going to Republicans. Ten of the top fifteen political donors in the past 24 years are unions, and their average donation percent to Democrats is 82.2%. But yeah, corporations are not people and their donations should be capped. Unions, however, are people and they should not be limited.

          • idamag

            You should really study Nazi Germany before you spout off. Corporations have one of the largest lobby groups in the world. This lobby group pours money into campaigns. It is the Chamber of Commerce. Doctors have the AMA. Every bank has their lobbyists. However, money makes it okay for these people to have lobbies. Whatever is the working person thinking? How can the workers believe they also have a right to an organization to speak up for them? They are so arrogant as to think they are as good as banks and corporations. How dare they!

          • Russell Byrd

            It is not popular with the right-wing, but historical analysis has shown that the real power behind the rise of Hitler was the men running the corporations and big businesses. Simply, his right-wing ravings were tailor made for their business models. Just as they are here today.

            As well, Hitler was charismatic and seductive as a speaker. The rich industrialists saw Hitler as the best choice in a political landscape littered with Socialists, Communists, Liberals, and religious moralists.

            They made only one error in judgement. Like many elite Germans, including the military, they saw Hitler as a unsophisticated rube. The “Bohemian Corporal,” that could understand complex instruction, but had no original ideas. In other words, someone they could control. They got even richer, but they could not control Hitler. They just did not understand that he was crazy and would take everything that they had cheated and stole for, to Hell with him..

          • GreginPottsville

            Obama is real cozy with those at the tippy top of the food chain (i.e. GE which paid no taxes on $5 billion in profits). Obama is a charismatic and seductive speaker. I don’t think the Warren Buffetts or Immelts understand Obama is truly about control of the people. But the liberal “elite” love him because he takes care of them. The rest of the liberal sheep (i.e. most who live on left wing sites like this one) are just blind.

          • Russell Byrd

            Same lies as always. You have been answered so many times it is ridiculous.

            As a fan of the KocK bros, and Faux, and Rush Limpdick, and Churl Rove, etc., you have no right to call anyone a sheep. Those bastards have already sheared you down to the bone and you are too stupid to know it. Keep pulling for the team that uses you as a sock puppet. They are too cheap to even use any “lube” when they are having their way with you. It must hurt to be so dumb.

            In the future, you might try to use some original thought. Of course, you are just a troll spewing the pre-packaged filth of your masters. Kind of funny in a way, to know that something so dumb can even use a keyboard.

            Post away, as you have already had your say, many, many times over, and you only come here to harass and disrupt. I will just treat you as the troll you are.

          • GreginPottsville

            I do know when a liberal loses an argument, they resort to some sick sexual connotations such as you just did. I won. Good Day.

          • Russell Byrd

            Only a real ass creep would claim to attain that which is unattainable. Yet, your post speaks volumes about how low a scumbag you really are. Far from winning, you have lost every exchange. Now losing is something you can do. Merely assigning a “win” to yourself when you are a trolling, lying, bully proves nothing except that you are a delusional low-life.

            Since, a right-wing sock puppet like you never seems to have a coherent argument and must lie to make a point, there is little point in me trying to post on-topic to you. You have been hearing my replies, because you refuse to post on-topic.

            As it has been over 12 hours since my last and your post, and since you are in no way on-topic, you qualify as a troll. If you had ever read any of the posts replying to you, and that includes mine, then you would realize what the result will be. Your troll has been logged.

          • Russell Byrd

            When someone posts sincerely, with truth, fact, and reason, it is impossible to “lose.” Therefore, when a Liberal posts, you cannot conceivably win.

            You, as all right-wing trolls, are just angry that your s**t is not swallowed whole. You must resort to lies and bullying, because in your own mind you have an ordained “right” to win and rule. You compulsively continue to post nonsense as a punitive exercise. You instinctively know that your opposition will eventually allow you to have your way and you have always been told that Liberals are easy prey.

            Of course, that last sentence is just more of the spoon-fed propaganda aimed at the right-wing’s faithful a** kissers. You got it all wrong. AGAIN.

            Oh yeah, Pottyville, GE has not been paying any taxes since the Re-thieve-licans reduced the tax rates on the rich. This did not start under Obama!

            Obama tried to fix this situation, your heroes wereare against him. ARE YOU FOR CORPORATIONS AND THE RICH PAYING MORE TAXES AND A FAIR SHARE OF TAXES, when profits are at an all time high? In spite of the fact that real wages have been dropping for years.

            Until, you give a coherent answer, I am not addressing any of the lies in your posts. Of course, I will post a blanket statement after each of your lies I find. . . .

          • bikejedi

            Once gain thank you for making my point . Obama vowed to end Lobbyists and on his first two days in office he hired 16 of them …OUCH

          • idamag

            Presidents don’t hire lobbyists. The corporations do.

          • bikejedi

            Obama hired 16 of them by day two of his regime to be members of that Regime . So I guess you are wrong . Also Unions and non for profits also have lobbyists

          • idamag

            You are just embarrassing yourself. There are things I might find I do not agree with that the President has done, but I don’t make up crap. If you don’t have brown eyes, you are a quart low. Now, dipped-in-dumb name the lobbyists,. Who are they? And since lobbyists are people who try to persuade the government their way, who are these lobbyists exerting pressure on? You couldn’t have graduated high school ten years ago and back as you would have had to study American Government in order to graduate, unless you went to school in Texas. Or maybe Piper, Kansas.

          • bikejedi

            Look it was widely publicized that he hired 16 lobbyist . He did that instead of getting rid of them like he promised . Do a Google search for god sakes …Im not here to do your research especially on stuff that was widely disseminated even by Liberal Media . I graduated High School in Chicago so maybe you are right . Maybe those Socialist Che wearing T shirt Union teachers weren’t interested in teaching ….Anyway despite that I went on to a stellar education and careers .

          • idamag

            I am going to tell you it is widely publicized that a UFO landed in the back yard of the White House and the aliens are meeting with the president. You can prove anything on the internet as there are a lot of individual bloggers out there. Some of them are smart and a lot of them are just fringe lunatics. Stick with your cronies that ride bikes, drink beer and curse the president and the government. I can imagine all you have to brag about is your cars, your guns, your bikes, how much beer you can drink and how fast you can drive. So stick to your belly scratching and beer drinking. I can’t believe you graduated from high school in Chicago or even that you graduated. I have friends from Chicago and they are quite intelligent.

Maybe it was on NBC or ABC …they like to alter video tape lie and sensationalize stories …Yes I drink beer but not often and no I don’t scratch my flat abs …remember life is too short to drink crappy beer …I’m partial to German Wies Beers or a good old 312 ….

            Well bikeliar, where did you get your unique information on “PP” money laundering. Oh yeah, it was just convenient to make up a boldface lie to give you another off-topic talking point. You are a disgusting sack of filth.

          • bikejedi

            Well Liar it is just common sense . Obama donates MY Tax dollars to them and then they make massive donations back into his Campaign ….Like I said it takes common sense so that is why you are probably having trouble with it ….It is so hard to free minds that have become accustomed to the Matrix …Its hard to get people to break their programming …that’s why you are having a problem with it ….Just go back to the hive battery

            Show evidence that any of your lies, and I stress in advance that they are lies, have any evidence of being true. You have not yet, so I will not be holding my breath in anticipation.

            You are the ONLY one who has not supplied a single fact to back any of your positions . I on the other hand have cited an example from Liberal Media the NY times and real Math from Politicalmath.com …and you come on here talking about people being Liars ??? do you know how infantile and foolish you make yourself look . You do more spin lying and excuse making then Obama and Carney put together

            She is probably a relative of someone that feels sorry for her, that happens to be a co-worker of a friend, that is related to one of the event’s volunteers that passes out bottled water and spare ribs.

            In Illinois that would not be a problem . Go to the Illinois Policy Institutes Web site and you will find that of the Tax Dollars we doled out to Public Unions they turned around and used a lot of it to donate to one party98% strong . Most of those donations went right to the Campaigns of the Pols responsible for granting them outrages raises and pensions that Illinois cant afford . Consequently we have had 4 credit downgrades in 2 yrs and are currently rated lower then Iraq …so It seems Obama isn’t the only one who knows how to get a credit or bond rating downgraded ..Now before you use that tired argument about they should feel free to donate to anyone they want consider it is our tax dollars . If it were their money I would have no problem . If it were the individual Union people donating I also wouldn’t have a problem with it . In Illinois what you have is an incestuous relationship between the Unions and the Dems and when they divvy up our Tax Dollars there is NO advocate for the Tax Payers in the room …Lean Forward and BOHICA

          • Russell Byrd

            Victorious? Sick maybe. After the fever pitched hysteria and bombardment of lies, what did you win? Dick of the year? Yep.

            I did not read yesterdays rants, but I have had ample reports of what they said. However, it was impossible not to notice that your posts were chaotic. I guess you really lost . . . IT. So go on your little lying, trolling way. The one thing disgraceful about total stupidity is failing to realize that no one believes the nonsense you hold so dear.

            You single-handedly racked up almost as many negative votes as I have ever seen in a blog. Remarkable, since unregistered readers cannot even give a negative vote. Your posts have about the same effect as food poisoning on
            the public.

            What you did manage to win, after being verbally bashed on every post, exposed as a closeted self-loathing fairy, a pathological liar, a sock puppet for the right-wing propagandists that hold you in contempt, and a total jerk that lives in his parent’s house [basement?] and smells like a billy goat, is that there is no point in my continuing to whoop up on your sorry a**. There is nothing more in it for me.

            Unlike yourself, I have a life, a job, a family. You can continue to bully and lie from the comfort of whatever cesspool your parent’s will let you live in. I cannot stop you, but really, there is no point as you have a meaningless and pathetic life.

            Everyone knows what that “self-employed” means. You just spend your time dicking around. You are just what is known as a “good-time Charlie.” but someday you will regret the waste of all your years pursuing your puerile entertainments. I do sincerely feel sorry for your parents, but I guess they do love you dearly. That love is misplaced, but very natural, unlike their dear son. Now, you can post to your heart’s content, though I know we will meet again, when I will give you another good spanking. Bye girlie. . .

          • bikejedi

            So now being Self Employed is a bad thing ? I own my own business ….One of my Customers is Stephanie Cutter ….Ever hear of her ?

          • Russell Byrd

            Like the BTO song, “we love to work at nothin’ all day.” That is the bikejock I know.

            As for Stephanie Cutter, NO and I have never “here” of her either. Sorry, I know you will tell me that she is SO important to know, but that means little in a real world.

            I do send her my condolences and sympathy. Women nowadays are usually smart. She will figure you out your a low-life before long. Tada, you’ve been had again.

            Think that last line is dumb. Yep, it was meant to be as I was imitating you. . . . 🙂

          • bikejedi

            NEWS FLASH FOR LIARS WHO CLAIM ” FRIENDS ” ARE TELLING HIM WHAT I POST ….STEPHANIE CUTTER WAS THE DEPUTY CAMPAIGN CHIEF FOR THE OBAMA CAMPAIGN …Now every liberal knows you are beyond belief stupid as well as a LIAR …If you had friends which you don’t they would have told you who she was you moron . Why you should slap your imaginary friends for letting that get by hahahahahahahahah…Stepahanie was the Girl who went on National TV during the Campaign and LIED ( just like you ) and said Romney was a felon for his days at BAIN . She claimed the erroneously because he didn’t list it on some paper work ….Hahahahaha YOU DONT KNOW WHO STEPHANIE CUTTER IS HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA….How about VALERIE JARRET ? DAVID AXELROD? HAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAH LOW INFORMATION LIAR HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH

          • Russell Byrd

            Only an idiot thinks that means anything. OK, I don’t know her, but let’s just say that I will lie now and claim that I do. What now? You are just making my points for me. You are a self-loathing closet dweller, that has let his phobias drive him insane. This does not mean anything to a rational mind. Oh yeah, we do not need to go there again.

            I must say if you were not such a dick, I would feel sorry for you. Do you think you are hurting my feelings. You are making a spectacle of yourself. Like I said, you are doing myour work for you. Anyway, does she know you are such a racist dick-head? What service do you perform for her? You are too useless to shine her shoes, so what is it?

            Why should I know her? Does knowing her make you special? Maybe, some of her smarts were supposed to rub off on you, but it didn’t happen. Right now I am totally numb from trying to fathom such stupidity.

            Yeah, Romney was a felon for his days at Bain. Are you really that queer for a dollar bill. Romney and people like him have stolen the birth right of millions of people. Why is it so important to worship that scumbag. Now I can fairly say that you break the First Commandment as well, but this worship is unnatural. Once again, no joke.

            Women have husbands or they should, if they have babies, so insurance takes care of all the needs that PP provides to women that have no one to be there for them. My wife goes for her annual check-ups and my insurance pays for it, so many don’t have to using PP.

            Everything you have said has never been backed up with any fact whatsoever. Regardless, of how often you have been asked. You troll todisrupt and drive posters away so they will not have an opportunity to exercise their First Amendment rights. You do not read replies. You lie, twist, and spin constantly. You have never refuted anything said against you, either.

            Youcannot be so stupid to think you will convince anybody of anything. The people here are not inclined to lie, or trust those that do. So you CAN disrupt, but you will only harden their resolve. Never change their minds nor wake them up. In fact, you confirm all the bad things we see in your vile, evil platform. So there is nothing else to be said, but to drive you out.

        • ChristoD

          PROVE your Red states comment. I am CERTAIN there is NO way the deep south states, and most other Red states, are growing jobs and I would bet that the Red states that are are paying minimum wages to the new growth workers. The exception is Texas….maybe. So bikejedi, whatever the hell that means, PROVE it or get off the soapbox.

          • Russell Byrd

            He can’t, but we all know that will not stop him from continuing to spread that BS.

          • bikejedi

            The fact of the matter is that any job is better then no job . Most of the States with Job growth and economic growth are Red Right to work States while most of the States that have negative growth and high unemployment happen to be Dem Union States like Illinois and Cali …these States also enjoy crippling pension debt high cost of living higher taxation and much higher crime rates

          • Russell Byrd

            Actually, none of that rot is true. Having the choice of no job and starving without a home, and having a job and starving without a home, is not much difference. One at least has an end in sight, while the other is slow misery. Do I exaggerate, maybe, but the point is valid.

            As far as crime, Texas has a simply awful crime rate.

            As far as job growth, you have been huffing something. Job growth is the worst in Red states and states run by Republipunk governors.

            So you can just keep that Faux Noise tin-hat propaganda.

          • bikejedi

            Lets compare any City or hell …whole States crime to the Liberal Utopia and gun free zone that is Chicago You lose that one every time . And please don’t believe me go to the govts websites …Dept of Labor for one and go State by State and see where the Job growth is . It is exactly as I stated ..In Red right to work states .

          • Russell Byrd

            Capitalism created Chicago and all its resulting problems. . . . That is truth, whether I like Capitalism or not.

          • bikejedi

            Capitalism created the opportunity to build a beautiful City . The Dems and their Liberal agenda which favors Public Unions for their support as well as a permanent underclass for their support are the biggest drivers of High Taxation Massive Debt High Crime . these issues have chased over 200,000 people to leave what used to be the greatest city on the planet . The biggest Demographic that are leaving are middle class Blacks by the way …so its not just those evil Republican Capitalists that are leaving . It is Loyal Party members that are fed up with their Party’s agenda .

          • Russell Byrd

            That is pure right-wing, teatard, ditto head, tin hat wearing, spoon fed propaganda. You did not express either one truth or any independent thought. That is the most vacuous and spacious nonsense you could have concocted. Yet, I realize you did not concoct it. You just ate it up from your masters like a s**t eating dog laps up his favorite meal.

          • Russell Byrd

          • Russell Byrd

            You have already been challenged to PROVE the rot you have been spewing. You “conveniently” ignored the request.

          • Independent1

            Texas is not the exception – it’s the poster child of how to destroy a state. Checkout my res[ponse to bikejedi above showing him just how poorly Texas compares to the other states in America – it virtually ranks in the bottom 5 in almost every measurable category except the growth of low paying jobs – with pay just barely above the poverty level. Texas ranks 6th in the nation as having the highest percentage of its residents living below the poverty level.

          • bikejedi

            As for the New jobs created under Perry the average starting pay is $16/hr quite high for a State with a very low cost of living and no State income tax . The low cost of living is probably because the State is not ruled by Public Union pension debt and the need for ever increasing taxation like they do it in Dem States

          • Independent1

            Doing some checking, your average hourly rate looks about right at $16 but several websites I checked indicated that the Texas average salaries are slightly lower than the national average for similar work, and the cost of living there is about 2 1/2% higher than the median cost of living for all states. Texas cost of living is much higher than states such as La, Ms, Mt, Mo etc, which are all around 5%-7% below the country median. And I guess you just can’t see the destruction the low taxation has created in the state with it ranking in the bottom 5 of all states on virtually every measure but job creation because the state is not funding virtually anything that’s important for a good society – like its infrastructure, its schools, its police forces, etc. etc. You’re obviously very short-sighted.

          • bikejedi

            Wow you mentioned not funding virtually anything that’s important for a good society …Would that be like funding for mental health programs ??? or food programs for vets ??? Because in Illinois we cut those things completely out of the budget . I think Texas probably does it much better without the pandering for votes programs such as Aspira here in Chicago ..or the funding we do for cease fire ????

          • Russell Byrd

            Why don’t you face up to the truth of WHO really made those cuts! Man, you have absolutely no shame spinning like that.

          • bikejedi

            Ok You are right …so Ill tell the truth . Since we are ruled by Democrats in this State and the Republicans have absolutely no input beside their votes ….well It was totally the DEMOCRATS that did that and they had to do it because even with the largest State Income Tax Hike in American History they didn’t have the money for these all important programs . Programs to take care of the mentally disturbed and the homeless . Chicago has homeless people pan handling on EVERY corner now . They didn’t have the money for these programs because they had to take care of THEIR favored people in the Public Unions . In Illinois these people have double the medium income of the average wage earner….Is that plain enough for you …The DEMS care more about their friends in the PUBLIC UNIONS who make double the average income then helping the NEEDY …so where is their Liberal Compassion ????? Fucking MORON….:earn what you are talking about …If you want good info on what is going on in the most DEM / Union State go to the Illinois Policy Institutes web site …get informed before you accuse other of not facing up to the truth you TROLL

          • Russell Byrd

            You do not even know how Illinois is run. The Pubs are doing all of this. Do not spin it. Yes, they have some Democrat allies, but even most of that is due to the fact that if your mob does not get its way, then government will shut down. How about the new gun law. THAT IS NOT a law that a liberal would sponsor. So keep spinning, you are just wasting everyone’s time.

            Right-wingers have an allergy to truth.

            In Internet slang, a troll (/ˈtroʊl/, /ˈtrɒl/) is a person who sows discord on the Internet by starting arguments or upsetting people,[1] by posting inflammatory,[2] extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community (such as a forum, chat room, or blog), either accidentally[3][4] or with the deliberate intent of provoking readers into an emotional response[5] or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion.[6]

        • Russell Byrd

          Of course, you do have a certain point. In those states that “Low Taxes
          Limited . . .” nonsense is working wonderfully for the top of the
          economic heap. Unfortunately, he ignores the fact that for 99.7%, it is
          a disaster.

          The Texas economy is just big and supported by some of the most excessive corporate welfare in the nation. Texas has been less than 50% Anglo for several years now. Without ignoring the minorities and the huge number of impoverished people, using techniques such as gerrymandering, the Texas economy is very nearly in the tank. The books showing Texas is doing so well are largely “cooked.”

          • bikejedi

            Of course you are wrong …Why don’t you go to the best number crunchers in the biz …you might try going to politicalmath.com and search the Texas miracle . It will open your eyes to the liberal lies you are being taught . These aren’t low paying jobs being created and they aren’t oil jobs . The average new job there is paying $16 /hr to start and that is in a State with a low cost of living and no State income Tax ,. They have a low cost of living because of fewer govt regulations and small govt Unions . they also don’t have crippling pension debt like Illinois .

          • Russell Byrd

            I went to your link . . . you are shining me on right? Did you really think I wouldn’t look. I hope you enjoy Texas, while it lasts. It only works now because the rich man gets to rule totally and human needs go unanswered. I could cite evidence, point by point, but why should I when you could do it yourself. You will keep lying anyway.

            As I have pointed out, you have ignored any challenges to you. I have noticed that I am singled out a lot for the “troll” treatment from trash like you. You finally got through to me the that I should be taking that as a point of pride. I am an extremely humble person, shy really. As well, I do not hate anyone by nature, except bullies, so I am obligated to make sure I know something about what I am saying. Not just what the propagandists for the bullies tell me to believe.

          • Russell Byrd

            Your not equipped for truth or facts. The difference between Liberals and you: We gather facts and make our decision accordingly, you make your decision and then look for the first source to confirm that what you have manufactured is true.

            As far as logic, your logic dictates that what you want must be what MUST BE. Because? Because you say so. More of your famous arrogance and ego. Hitler thought exactly the same way. (Say what you like, the truth IS painful.) In your view, the world is for YOU. The rest of us must take what you are willing to spare.

            As far as using our feelings, we do. We can think on both sides of our brain. We also have a conscience, which means wrong is not right when it benefits us. And we have a sense of shame which keeps us from constantly lying to get our way. These traits are part of being human. Something you seem unequipped to understand.

          You really can’t be as cluelless as you post are you?? It’s the red states’ idiot legislators that have stymied the economy – normally, during a recession, states work to counter job losses to offset the falling national economy by adding jobs. However, during the Great Recession, red state idiot legislators did just the opposite – they cut budgets and state services so far (the dumbest thing you can do during a recession) that they threw millions of state residents onto unemployment – which has not only stymied the economy but has also been the big reason why the real unemployment rate is still well over 7.5%. And it’s these millions of unemployed RED STATE residents that are sucking the most federal aid dollars – done intentionally by the devious red states. Trying to make themselves look good “Gosh look, we’ve balanced out budget!!”, Yeah Right! But at the expense of your state’s residents now on unemployment and sucking federal aid.

          Just to show you how that’s working, here’s a list of the states that are getting the most federal aid dollars:

          New Mexico / $2.63 (Run by the GOP)
          West Virginia /$ 2.57 Red State
          Mississippi/$2.47 Red State
          Hawaii/$2.38
          Alabama /$2.03 Red State
          Alaska/$1.93 Red State
          Montana/$1.92 Red State
          S. Carolina/$1.92 Red State
          Maine/$1.78 (Run by the GOP)
          Louisiana/$1.75 Red State

          In contrast to that list, let’s look at the states that need and get the least federal aid dollars and which are effectively the biggest of 17 states actually supporting the country (remember, 17 states get less federal aid than the taxes they send to Washington – 14 Dem States/3 GOP States)

          1. New Jersey ($0.62)
          2. Connecticut ($0.64)
          3. New Hampshire ($0.68)
          4. Nevada ($0.73)
          5. Illinois ($0.77)
          6. Minnesota ($0.77)
          7. Colorado ($0.79)
          8. Massachusetts($0.79)
          9. California($0.81)
          10. New York ($0.81)

          Kind of blows holes in your nonsense posts about it’s the Red States that are driving the economy, DOESN’T IT!!!!!!!!

          • bikejedi

            Of course what you site is totally inaccurate …But if you want to believe that tripe all it does is show how bad Dem legislators are at bringing home the Bacon . It has very little to do with whether a State is growing jobs or an economy . Businesses will go where they can be a viable business . These days that is right to work Red States with Low Taxation and very small Public Unions …All you are pointing out is not even relevant to why these States are either sinking or rising in those areas . And to say.. and I paraphrase contrast that with states that need and get the least and then cite Dem States that are freaking broke shows you don’t have a concept of how economics works ….Illinois needs a bailout worse then anyone … the money that Obama sends to the Muslim Brotherhood would surely help so if they aren’t getting their fair share take it up with your side …K ….. Illinois ? They have over 100 billion in Pension debt and over 54 billion in healthcare plan debt …all while having a lower bond rating then Iraq . Its hard to have a discussion with someone who uses such useless analogies that proves they haven’t a clue as to how an economy works ….

          • Independent1

            If you’re clueless, I guess you’re clueless. Sorry, but I don’t consider states that have reduced their taxes so low that the only way the states stay viable is by sucking far more federal aid dollars than they pay in taxes. if the United States kicked all these states out of the Union, they’d all collapse upon themselves unless they drastically raised taxes. And if they keep the low tax revenues as they are, it’s only a matter of time before these states will look like a 3rd world nation with infrastructure that is a total disaster. A group evaluated the highway systems around the planet and came up with a great assessment – they ranked the highways in the great red state of Mississippi, as the worst on the PLANET; considering that Mississippi isn’t in a developing country. In other words, this group is saying that given that Mississippi is suppose to be part of an industrialized nation, it’s highway system is a virtual disaster. And this is exactly what all these red states that are shamming America are going to end up like in time – just like Texas whose quality of its highways is ranked in the bottom 5 in the country.
            Despite your idiot adoration for low taxation, you can only carry that so far and the vast majority of red states have way overdone it. Even Wisconsin, has plummetted from around 14th in the nation in job creation to around 44th because of the idiot policies that the state has put in place. These states are nothing but complete shams that have reduced taxes and services for no other reason than to allow their wealthy residents to get richer at the expense of middleclass taxpayers IN OTHER STATES, and to subsidise businesses just to make the state look good when in fact everything about them is a DISASTER!!!

          • bikejedi

            While some of what you say may have some merit it is not relevant to what we are discussing or to what anyone else has posted . My basic premise is that Red States that are Right to work are booming and creating jobs while Dem Unions States are creating Pensions debt that is Unsustainable High Taxation High Unemployment and High Crime . One model works one doesn’t …Unfortunately for America Obama likes the model that doesn’t t work . As I live in Chicago I would find it very hard to believe that ANY State has worse infrastructure and I have driven in all of the States beside Alaska and Hawaii . I also don’t know where you get your stats but Wisconsin has added , and continues , to add jobs …Most of which are leaving Illinois for Wisconsin

          • Russell Byrd

            You say that, but right to work states not only are not job creators, what jobs that are created have wages that most people cannot live on. NO community is better off if its people have less income. It is bad for the people AND it is bad for business growth. Of course, it is great for the owners that run these communities and treat their employees as chattels.

          • Russell Byrd

            A more simple answer, and the truth, is that Capitalism has always paid its bills by “growth.” To keep up prosperity, and keep ahead of the greedy profit mongers, one needs to grow the economy. Not use economy destroying tactics because you hate America and the bulk of the people that live there.

          • bikejedi

            Agreed …I love America And I too am against those who want to destroy our economy by making it over into a failed communist or socialist model . Those styles of economies have NEVER succeeded ANYWHERE they have been tried . I suggest that people who want that just move to Cuba or Russia …they have everything you want… Govt healthcare gun bans etc . So instead of trying to make America over into that failed image why not just move there . America has brought the greatest amount of prosperity and opportunity to the greatest number of people of any society on this planet . We have accomplished that through Free Market Capitalism and by having a Representative Republic . that has given Americans the freedom to innovate and create that is sadly missing in any Socialist Nation . So if you want success join the American team that has brought that success and not the failed Socialist style .

          • Russell Byrd

            You really do not know much about economics, but you do carry on that nonsense anyway. We DO NOT have a free market economy. We talk about it, but it is provably untrue. The rich control much of our economy unfairly. That is why Socialism has problems. To many rich deadbeats are working like maggots to destroy fair play, free markets, and above all, Democracy. If you can’t figure this out, you are just a mindless drone. Rather, one of those sheep you are always carrying on about.

            Oddly, every European nation is Socialist to some extent. Most would do even better if the moneyed class could be made to fairly contribute. Government healthcare and gun bans: They all have them to a large degree.

            You “American team” is just failed propaganda. Trickle down, falling wages, etc. are the “American way.” Voter suppression, etc. are examples of the “freedom” you would give us.

          • Russell Byrd

            As well, you are a total dick for even mentioning Cuba or Russia. They had revolutions because of the criminal capitalists that you love so much. Life in Cuba before Castro was near hopeless. The problems Cuba has and the problems we have with Cuba, are mostly of our own creation. Embargo, for instance. Like yourself, our nation desires to bully the little guy into submission. We will force others let us do things our way inside their own borders. And we always have.

            I will give you a name to look up. A very interesting man. Marine corps major general, twice decorated with the Medal of Honor. He fought those Banana Wars for our fat asses and lived to tell about it. You might ought to read about him: Smedley Darlington Butler.

          • bikejedi

            Unbelievably clueless …capitalist ruined Cuba and they were near hopless …hahahahahahahahahahahaha …You describe Cuba since Castro and Communism took over …You are such a Soros tool and oh so poorly informed …You don’t even have a clue as to how capitalism or economics work . You proved that with your description of ….what did you call it Galls Steagal ????OMG you don’t even understand the sub prime problem …go do some google searches and please come out of your moms basement and take a shower k

          • Russell Byrd

            TROLL, I do understand the sub-prime problem. Obviously, much better than you. And I can tell you the cause.

            And KOCH SUCKER, you might take your own advice about doing Google searches. In fact, you might learn how to do research at all. I know all about research. I have done plenty and still do. I even know about things called “books.” I know, too scary for you to think about. That Readden and Rightten just scares the Bejesus

            Amongst other things, I have an education in economics, history, and cultural geography. I know how economics is supposed to work, but I know enough history to know that it does not work that way. And I know and have studied people. I still do. You have been sucking on that teet of right-wing propaganda and are too stupid to think for yourself.out of a Chicago cracker like you.

          • Russell Byrd

            You are really too stupid to answer. You talk as if you are reading a
            script written by one of your rich, right-wing masters. Study a little
            history. Cuba was a powder keg.

            And ASSHOLE, I have never
            mentioned either Galls Steagal or the act’s correct name. I do not
            mention it because I suspect you do not know the actual name either.
            You are just trolling again. You are such a FU, you do not even know whom you have been addressing.

          • bikejedi

            For Once you are right . It was Idamag who called it Galls Steagal but you are equally clueless as to the causes of the economic collapse. Judging from your Occupier talking points

          • Russell Byrd

            And you are still a dick. You actually admit to your own incompetence. That would normally be perfectly forgivable, but then you immediately follow it with another lying slur. There is an underlying truth of course. Anyone that shows bravery and does right in the face of adversity, i.e. faces up to bullying scum like you, gets my admiration.

          • bikejedi

            Like Fern hahahahah .

          • Russell Byrd

            Fern had nothing to do with the fact that you are a sick, cowardly liar. You just proved you are a coward, because rather than talk like a man, you deflect on someone that is not even here. Just a nappy pant bully boy. SICK!

          • bikejedi

            Why am I a dick for citing valid examples of how well a Communist Nation works and asking you to move there whether then turning America into a failed twin of those Country’s and their systems ????? By the Way is $5 gal Gas 1 1/2 % growth 7 to 8 % unemployment ( and that’s using the way less accurate U3 method ..The real number using the U6 method is about 17% ) now considered the new norm and the benchmark that you and your lefty friends will judge future Preezy’s ????? Is that the change you can believe in ??? If so ANY future Preezy is going to look swell as compared to the Gay Muslim Kenyan Marxist .

          • Russell Byrd

            11. I know you mean President, as in Prez, but what in the h*ll is a Preezy. That would have a ridiculous long “e” sound.

            12. Your comment about President Obama is a lie on four counts. As such, that slander is functional, if not actionable, TREASON. Entirely, false. Give us those citations you are so fond of making.

            By my count, you have lied or twisted facts (i.e., more lies) on all 12 points, less number 1. And you told 4 whoppers on the twelfth. I make that as fourteen functional lies in one post. I conclude, that though I spoke harshly, you are in fact a dick.

            One question from me: Are you stoned?

          • bikejedi

            Preezy is what Jay Z and The Queen Bey refer to him …So does that Misogynist Moron Bill Maher …You don’t have a dick and you make Fern a good wife . Hope she doesn’t so you too hard

          • Russell Byrd

            You had no right to involve anyone else in our personal discussions. Having said that, I confidently know what I have or do not.

            As I have said, you are spelling something that does not say what you think it does. Regardless of what someone that is not even posting in this thread have to say, or not. Of course, stupidity and arrogance walk hand in hand.

          • Russell Byrd

            8. Socialism is practiced, to some extent, by every first world nation. With few exceptions, to a greater extent than we ever have, very successfully, and with a lot less resources than we possess. Helping our nation be stronger and more fair is not a shameful thing. Being a bully and taking advantage of the weak is nothing to take pride in. At least, decent people do not do so.

            9. Your gas analogy, if that be what it is, makes no sense to anyone. I’ve asked, and no one understands your methodology, or lack thereof. Yes, I get that you claim unemployment is being calculated too low, BUT that was always the case. The same sort of fudging went on during Reagan’s time.

            10. “Lefty friends,” yeah, I take that as “people that
            have a mind, are not vile and evil, and do not need to lie as fast as the proverbial ‘dog can trot.'”

          • bikejedi

            8 No country that practices Socialism will have success over time

            9 My gas analogy makes no sense ??? So you think we should just accept $5 / gal gas …that it is a good thing …When gas was $2 /gal under Bush you people were demanding action and he gave it and gas settled to 1.80 by the time he left office . Now you don’t even here people or your media mention the $4,50 gal gas and the crippling effect it has on the economy . What you here from the left is excuse making for Obama . Saying that a President cant do anything personally to affect the price of gas ….when his immediate predecessor did just that .
            Under Reagan there was no fudging as he used the U6 method of calculating that figure so you couldn’t manipulate that number just by dropping the labor Participation rate …gee for someone who claims to have a back ground in economics you sure seem to be uninformed in how that works . Where did you go to school ? Was it somewhere where you just got a Liberal indoctrination ??? They sure didn’t teach you anything about the economy if you don’t know the difference between the U3 method and the U6 method
            10 if that is what you call having a mind and you are an example you perfectly illustrate why the left is viewed as low information . You claim to have a background in economics but don’t even have a base knowledge of Sub Prime markets and the methods used to calculate unemployment numbers . It is no wonder your side doesn’t understand economics if you are supposed to have a background in it . Also it is you and Fern who epitomize vile and evil with your name calling intolerance

          • Russell Byrd

            8 The evidence suggests you are totally wrong. What is wrong in Socialist counties is the capitalist elite are bleeding them dry for profit AND to MAKE them fail. Fortunately, they have not yet had complete success.
            9 We do not have $5 a gallon gas anywhere I have been. There may, or may not, have been places that get to that price, but it is not now typical. If you had an integrity and intelligence you would know about something called, “supply and demand.” Production world-wide is steady, but the supply is starting to fail. We use far too much gas compared to the rest of the world. And “W” did what that affected the price of gas. Nothing good I can tell you. In fact, the blame you place on Obama is the exact same thing you defended Bush on. So, more spin and lies.
            10 You have nothing in evidence that I do not know about Sub Prime markets and methods to calculate unemployent. I have said nothing about Sub Prime. I am smart enough to know that there is no use in arguing the merits of several different methods of calculation. The different methods are used by different factions to get whatever result they desire. That is why I have remained silent as much as practical on those subjects.

            Oh, and a piece of garbage, such as yourself, deserves to be insulted. That is the mildest behavior that your have earned. Your “policies” would turn the entire nation into a paradise for the wealthy elites and leave the rest of us, including yourself, in a nationwide ghetto.

          • bikejedi

            Are you crazy stupid or just mis informed ?

            8 so the rich are greedy and that is why Socialist Countries have never worked ??? really Maybe its more that they get all of what they have earned confiscated to fund the lazy . So they move to Tax Shelters . This also has the effect of deincentivizing ANYBODY to produce . why would you want to work hard if everything you work for gets confiscated and redistributed to able bodies people who found out that by voting for Socialist they can vote for their own welfare increases . That is the point that all Democracies end all Socialist Nations begin and then the Money runs out . See France who’s welfare population voted the Socialist in . He went for a 75% income tax on the wealthy and they all started to move …Including all of those wealthy Hollywood Liberals hahahahah the Hypocrisy
            !0 you obviously DONT know the difference between the U# and U6 because if you did you would realize that the U6 by the way it is accounted would be very hard to manipulate ..please stop embarrassing yourself you obviously don’t understand it . As for you saying nothing you posted would show that you don’t know about the Sub Prime Markets the inverse is also true . Since you can offer no coherent rebuttal to what I posted about that it would indicate to anyone that you don’t understand it …So in summation anyone reading our two posts would consider ….one of us knows what we are talking about and the other doesn’t … and it is me not you . Ouch

          • Russell Byrd

            Trikejedi, have you noticed in the news. Our government has practically stopped working. That is why socialism is not working very well. OBSTRUCTIONISM.

          • Russell Byrd

            As U# and U6, I know very well what you mean and explained it earlier. However, why argue a point with a cry baby freak that has found a new rattle. You think you are special because you can read. Of course, not very well.

            Anyway, U3 = unemployment, it is what it is. You can argue about methodology, but as long as it is consistently calculated, it is hard to make a compelling argument against it.

            U6 = under employment. The two calculations are related, but have nothing to do with hocus pocus as you seem to think. Both exist in the same universe at the same time.

            Of course, now that I have done your work for you, you should feel proud for once.

          • bikejedi

            Ok You just displayed you DONT have a clue as to the differences U3 = Unemployment ?????? NO it is calculated ONLY on the basis of how many people file an Unemployment claim . therefore that number can be manipulated by the number of people participating in the LABOR PARTICIPATION RATE …try the Dept of Labor web site . Now two things come into play . Not everyone can file for Unemployment ..think Service Industry people . Secondly since Obama has such a long term unemployment problem a lot of people have simply run out of unemployment dropped out of the job market and are no longer looking for work . That drops the number of people in the Labor Pool and hence it is easy to manipulate the Unemployment figure . The man you all love to hate but is right over 98% of the time rightfully predicted that Obama and the Dems would manipulate that number to under 8% in time for that last election and he hit it on the ditto head haha. Now the U6 method uses those who file for Unemployment and also includes payroll figures as well as surveys of Companies and their hiring and staffing levels . It is much harder ( practically impossible) to manipulate that number . The U6 is the method that all other Presidents used before your Messiah Obama .Using the more accurate U6 method the REAL Unemployment has been between 14 to 20 % averaging around 16% total . Of course those would not have been numbers even Obama and his Liberal PR media could of sold …Hence for Obama we get a rules change and the U3 method …SWEEEEEEET … Of course I dumbed that down for you because you just displayed you hadn’t a clue …Either that or you did know but don’t want to acknowledge or admit it in your cult like devotion to your Messiah …..So stay in denial if that is the case ……and OUCH that hurt …

          • Russell Byrd

            If you think that, then you do not have a clue. If I had quoted code verbatim, you would have complained that the government lies. If you had a brain, you would see that ALL you are doing is manipulating the same method and figures to support your creepy point of view. And no on here believes one word you say.

Didn’t I just explain to you ( at a very 4th grade level so you would understand it ) the difference ? Do I need to take it down another notch so you get it ????? Im not manipulating anything to support MY point of view all I did was factually point out the differences in those two methods while at the same time displaying your utter childlike ignorance of these subjects …And why are you so concerned with my email inbox ???? that is creepy stalker kind of stuff DIPSHIT indeed …You still cant figure out the difference hahahahahahah

            You proved your stupidity with “the man you love to hate.” He makes his own theories and then he supplies his own evidence. Only a tin-foil hat teatard would fall for the most elementary failure of logic. Yep, we hate HATERS.

            Did you enjoy yesterday afternoon on your knees, sweetie?

          • Russell Byrd

            And here is an irrefutable conclusion: IF you are correct, then we have more distressed people, therefore we need more free healthcare, more SNAP, and more entitlement programs. Above all, we need jobs and a job program. Wonder who is stopping that from happening. So thanks for getting with the program. There is hope for you yet. Well, that was sarcasm. . . .

            And sneakypoo, where is that trash that you appealed to for help. I am proud of myself, I caught you red handed on the second post.

          • bikejedi

            That makes you proud ….Wow you do have no life .. I never appealed to anyone nor do I need help dealing with someone as stupid as you … We as a Nation have spent trillions trying to end poverty and have only made it worse .. Maybe its time to stop taking trillions out of the private economy for plans that don’t work and leave it where Business owners can use it to expand employment .

          • Russell Byrd

            You are persistent. It is just a shame you are not only a liar, but stupid too. The business owners have not bothered to expand employment. In fact they reduce it at a drop of a hat, just to make more money. As to failed plans, the only plans in jeopardy are due to your gangster heroes opposition and obstruction. In fact, PROVE that any so-called failures are true. Once again, just because you say something is true, does not make it true. So sad, too bad. You lie again.

          • Russell Byrd

            Another good joke. I noticed that you are rapidly steering away from the topics in my list. You never addressed even half of them. I know, too hard to spin so many lies in reply. Sorry.

          • Russell Byrd

            5. Obviously, you know nothing about Cuban history. Cuba was a nation
            run by gangsters. Many of them some of our worst. Of course, the Cuban gangsters all moved here after Castro. They are still a corrupting influence that no one wants to talk about. The likely killers of Kennedy are these good Capitalists, well, I will call them what they arewere: GANGSTERS. YOUR wonderful “W” probably owes his election to them. I do not defend Castro or some of his methods, but only an evil, idiot thinks Cubans are worse off today. Even with our embargo.

            6. You obviously did not take my advice and check General Butler. He is fascinating on his military career alone.

            7. No one suggested turning America into a Communist nation.

          • bikejedi

            Uh # 7 …. excuse me Obama is …and by your cult like devotion you do too

          • Russell Byrd

            Oh yes, you promised to quit posting to me about three days ago now. That makes lie number FIFTEEN. That only counts the ones that I have enumerated. You have told and repeated a hundred more, at least.

          • Russell Byrd

            No he is not. You are just a TROLL. And a racist punk that has
            hated Obama from the beginning. Now whine about the race card. YOU ARE A RACIST, so man-up and wear your title.

            As far as Communism, give us some examples. I can say with much more truth, that you desire the second coming of Adolf Hitler.

          • bikejedi

            There it is the Race Card …Could you for once try to consider that someone might just disagree with Obama because of his Policies ????? Why don’t you where the title of immature intolerant too uninformed to have a legitimate conversation Liberal and admit that facts and common sense destroy all of your positions so you resort to the race card and in that you divide the Nation .
            Oh and before you even try to paint anyone a communist or Nazi look at your OWN previous post about wanting to deny 1st amendment rights for anyone who doesn’t tow the Dem Party line ….You would deny that to Conservative . You said it yourself when you intoned that Conservative groups should not be allowed to raise money for their purposes . No Conservative I know of advocates that for Liberal groups even the most Communistic ones Like George Soros . And it also seems your view is in line with Obama and the IRS who used those Nazi tactics against Conservative groups …But you are a hypocrite and see nothing wrong with that right ???? And none of those Nazis should be punished right ???? And the media shouldn’t speak of it right ???? Well Liberal media sure got that memo and it makes it clear why all you Liberals hate Fox …they support the 1st amendment

          • Russell Byrd

            We hate Fox because they set the example for you. THEY LIE. As I have often said, I get my news from all kinds of sources and I make my decisions from that. You make your decisions based on your hate, bias, and bigotry. Then you find the source that tells you that you are right. Fox News fills the bill.

            Yeah, and how many times have we seen Fox cut away from someone that tells the flat out truth?

            And you do not read at all, it appears, I already made fun of you for pulling that lame race card. Tell us, oh perfect one, what do you think about minorities and Gays? We already know women are just kitchen help for you. What about everybody else? You proved that you HATE at least 80% of the population.

            And Liar, I never said anything about denying anyone their rights. I have stated, CLEARLY AND REPEATEDLY, THAT IS YOUR DESIRE. And I have demonstrated why and how you do this suppression. You not only lie but you are not even smart enough to be original.

          • bikejedi

            Fox lies ??? that’s great coming from people who watch MSNBC NBC ABC CBS and CNN …They have all lied and been caught . You are the LIAR but you probably learned that skill and that it was Ok to do that from Obama . I don’t hate anyone not minorities or gays ( I have lived with Black Women and have had Gay borders in my home . I don’t look at women as Kitchen help probably because the women I date are intelligent and accomplished …And since they have been mostly Conservative women you KNOW how hot they are …Nothing I posted would lead anyone to believe that I hate anyone . Only that I can spot intolerant morons .

          • Russell Byrd

            Fox has been caught so many times in lies, no one of normal intelligence believes anything they say. As I have repeatedly said,you like Fox because they tell you your crazy-train hatred is perfectly acceptable and normal. They tell you the lies you have concocted are true. They are entertainment for sick minds.

            An example I have repeatedly seen. When Insanity, er a, Hannity has a guest that he can’t rebut, he claims he can’t hear them. O’Reilly has done it to. Of course, Beck always just talked to his inner demon, so no live “victim” was needed.

          • bikejedi

            Really …that sounds real stupid when you factor in that Fox has the highest rating of all I said all Cable stations most weeks and that on most nights they outrank your favorite NBC which is a Network …Argue with that moron …I know all of these facts make you angry so just fester in it

          • Russell Byrd

            According to Fox. . . . If you take all the more accurate and more reasonable news organizations and combine them, then Fox is no longer in the running. You confuse that being the biggest liar in town, does not mean you are really the most popular.

            Of course, Fox is the first and only major network that has a bias that is very much part of their credo. We all knew what they were when they started. Of course, the only major crazy-train right-wing news provider is going to attract all of the crazy-train right-wing. Of course, Fox does have viewers that are just there for real news, but that can be said of all news providers, large and small, right and left. For instance, Fake News is preferred by WSJ readers, but of course, most Fake News viewers do not actually read WSJ.

            “So argue with that.” I did not have to. Just a review of the facts makes your ignorant argument go away. As always.

          • bikejedi

            Are you retarded ? Even Liberals will admit that CNN MSNBC NBC CBS and ABC all have the equal bias in the other direction . So that would make it 5 to 1 in favor of your liberal PR as opposed to Fox …By the way how do you like ABC altering video and audio of the Trayvon Martin case …How about NBC and MSNBC doing that same thing …So they purposely mislead and lie and don’t even offer the people they are misinforming an apology or retraction …Hence you all walk around repeating these lies …Lets see which networks have identified the Colorado shooter Giffords shooter and Sandy Hook shooter as Either Tea Party people or Conservatives when the fact of the matter was that they were all either Dems or Liberal nut jobs ???? Did they issue a retraction ??? Does Fox do any of that ???? IDIOT

          • Russell Byrd

            NO we do not say that retard!

            This is either your right-wing gods spoon feeding your empty heads with their lies or you are just making up another TROLL point.

            Balance of post went unread as it is certainly a waste of time reading more troll lies.

          • bikejedi

            The intelligent Liberals I know do …Sorry about that …I guess you didn’t get that memo … Maybe it is because you have no personal ethics or self respect and you are willing to tout the Liberal agenda talking points even when you know you are LYING ….And is it FOX that Zimmerman’s lawyers are suing for altering audio and video of Zimmerman to make him look like a racist or is that NBC and ABC ?????? Oh gee its the later …Your outlets Lie to the sheeple and when they are caught they don’t even offer a retraction to their viewers who must be so low information they don’t know they are being lied to

          • Russell Byrd

            Hey, remember Acorn, the con-man activist that cut and pasted the tapes to start a fake scandal has already settled with one former Acorn employee for 100G. Unfortunately for him, it looks like they are lining up to run a train on the bastard. Right out the door goes more right-wing lies:

            I post this for our readers, as I know you will avoid knowledge at all costs. Bigotry and racism are just soooooo much easier.

          • Russell Byrd

            Let’s just wait to see if they get anywhere with the smear campaign paid for by big right-wing cash. And let’s just see if Zimmerboy is alive this time next year. Like you right-wing trash always say” Not guilty does not mean innocent. Well, Ziphead is not innocent, the jury just didn’t convict. Of course, you are certain that OJ was guilty. RIGHT? Keep spinning. You have so few discussion points you have to bounce around like a hyper kid.

          • bikejedi

            Wow that sounds like a bigoted and racist comment and also like one of the Black Panthers threats against Zimm… Let me see if I got this right . A Hispanic man shoots a Black kid who was on top of him beating him and a jury acquits him and that is all Whitey’s fault ???? You sound like a race baiting poverty dealer ..Just Like Jesse and Al . Zimmerman was found innocent after the evidence was examined but a pinhead like you probably doesn’t even know the facts of the case because Liberal Media LIED and altered video and audio tapes of the case . That was designed to make the case a race issue and your dumb ass bought it hook line and sinker . Do you even understand how the law applied in this case or are you just doing what Obama and the Liberals want ….That would be to feel apoplectic about the case and rail that it was all about race ….Shouldn’t you be at some race riot looting or something ??? What are you too lazy to come out of your moms basement ??????

            As for citations, did you ever read the link embedded in the original article? Did you actually read the article? Everyone knows you just came here to disrupt.

            Did you read my posted links? Did you ever do any research on my suggested topics? It is futile to try to say you did. We know you didn’t because you came here to disrupt First Amendment protected conversation. Yeah, steal my posted ideas again. It is OK, everyone knows whose ideas you are stealing, so you are only losing more of your fleeting credibility. Even right-wingers are avoiding associating with you. All you’ve got are a couple of clone p*ss-heads like yourself. And even they have abandoned you.

            Once again, for the record, you are trying to belabor a topic that is days old. On the internet, that is an eternity.

          • Russell Byrd

            Any one that reads these threads will see why you are so susceptible to Faux Lies. You do not even have an original idea, you have to steal mine and repeat them back to me. No wonder you like Faux. You cannot tell the difference between lies and fantasy, truth and fiction.

            Odd that at least 60% of American women vote Democrat. Especially, just about all the educated ones. Only those women that are brow-beat by men or have no means to escape oppression vote for their oppressors. Oh yeah, that’s your mob of gangsters.

          • bikejedi

            Ok which one is it …I repeat your lies back to you or I get my info from the most reliable news source ? first why would I want to use talking points gleaned from a Liberal Pundit ? Do you realize who those people are ? Joy Behar Whoopie Goldberg Rosie Oddonnell Jon Stewart Steven Colbert and Misogynist Moron who likes to make fun of disabled children Bill Maher …You do realize that not a single one of them has a background in politics right ???? They have a background in telling jokes so the joke is on you . Wrong on the women thing 53% and the women who vote Conservative are vastly better educated . Most of them work …Most of your women are fat ugly frustrated …see Behar and the rest . Conservative women are intelligent and hot . think Michele Malkin wow …and ouch to your side

          • Russell Byrd

            “I don’t hate anyone not minorities or gays. . . .” I like this one. I guess this is a Freudian Slip. That’s where you inadvertently tell the truth when you meant to tell another lie.

            And the bit about living with black “women” and having a gay boarder is really rich. Which means everyone should have complete civil rights, because two-thirds of you bigots have claimed the exact same thing. Like fish left in July heat . . . it stinks. As they say, when pigs fly.

            You are not smart enough to even steal my ideas effectively. Oh well.

          • Russell Byrd

            There is no truth to refute. Blue states have an abundance of problems, but job creation is typically stronger in those states not run by Rescumbag governors. Blue states have much bigger economies, on average, and pay a lot more in taxes. Unlike, their atrophied “Red” counterparts. The “Red” states are crippled by comparison and consume more of that tax revenue. In spite of the fact that the cost of living is lower and benefits are lower. There is little reason for me to make any continued effort to reason with an malevolent idiot, such as yourself. The data is abundant, and untainted, to support my position, so keep spewing lies. I realize that government statistics are automatically false to you, because they are government statistics. No one can enter into the thought processes of a diseased mind. As I have said, I do not care if you continue for years. So carry on carrying on.

            The real truth is simpler, you do not have a coherent argument. Just hatred for everyone that is different form you. Whether, in ideas, color, orientation, or life expectations.

            Maybe, you are not really a bigot after all. As Joseph Wambaugh wrote, “You hate everyone equally.”

        • Independent1

          bikejedi, fools like you can keep cluelessly bashing Obama but what’s really unfortunate, is that because of your, and millions of other GOP loving fools idiocy, in continuing to allow the GOP obstructionism, America and the world will never know just how far Barak Obama could have led America and the world.

          The majority of economists agree that it was Obama insisting on following through with auto bailout and an additional stimulus despite strident GOP opposition that kept America and the world from a 2nd GOP created depression. It’s hard to even try to visualize what America would be like today if the GOP had had its way and America would now no have a true auto industry (had GM and Chrysler failed and Mitt Romney and his ilk taken it over and shipped its jobs to China as they did with Delphi; even Ford may have collapsed or be now a significantly diminished company).

          And it has been despite the GOP ‘s every effort to make him fail, that jobs created over the past 6 months exceed the jobs created by either Bush in any 3 years of their presidencies (and that’s despite the GOP sitting for over 2 years on his two jobs bills and doing everything they’ve been able to to stymie job growth); And it’s despite the GOP House wasting over 100 million dollars of taxpayer money playing games by purposely voting for legislation they knew was dead in the water (effectively doing nothing for over 4 years) because it include giveaways in unnecessary corporate subsidies, or drastic cuts to programs that serve the needy (even with condemnation from the Catholic church);

          And although the stock market has achieved the highest level in its history after Bush trashed it again (he did it several times during his 8 years), where might the market have gone if the GOP hadn’t worked as hard as they have to stymie the economy and thereby surpress public optomism?

          And although he succeeded in fully and partially completing 375 promises he made prior to being elected; how much farther could America have progressed over the last 4 plus years if the GOP’s obstructionism hadn’t kept him from following through on another 125 promises he had made?
          I can only hope that as historians look back years from now, they recognize the true damage that the GOP has done to not only America, but to the World with their hatrid for Barak Obama and thier every effort to make him fail – like using the filibuster in the Senate more times in the past 4 years than it was used since a Democrat coined the world (filibuster) back in 1859 – Mitch McConnell has used it more than 400 times to block every piece of legislation that might in any way make Barak Obama succeed. HOW TRUELY SAD!!!!!!!

        Bikejedi must have got a snoot full of diesel fuel. Eight of the poorest states in the Union are red states. And several more, like Kentucky, are only Blue on the state level. Nationwide they are bright Red. Well, no one can be very bright by voting “Red,” but I think you know what I mean.

        • bikejedi

          Wow did you think that up yourself or did Joy Behar help you ? You are only marginally right and that is only because the Red States you think you know about are rural and don’t have large cities . The truth of the matter is that almost all of the States showing Job Increases and growth are Red right to work States while almost all of the States showing negative growth and high unemployment are Dem Union States …Even Michigan grew a pair and went right to work .

          • Russell Byrd

            Michigan REALLY? They are not doing as bad as Wisconsin, but only marginally so. Yeah, and run by another right-wing wackjob, that spends more time on trying to run individuals lives and give welfare to the rich.

            You better start getting your stats straight. People are coming around. The lies you tell are not working as well as they did even a couple of years ago. The people are getting tired of you.

            The only thing your mob has as a strength is the support of fearful racists and bigots, mostly men and mostly white. I am in the latter two groups, but not in the first two.

          • bikejedi

            There it is the Race and Bigot card …congratulations you lose . You just made yourself look foolish and weak . You want some stats about Wisconsin . Balanced Budget for the first time in I think 34 years …Budget surplus cut real estate taxes and increased jobs by between 30 to 40 K…I think I;m done with you because you have proven to be intolerant and just want to play the race card …have a nice life wallowing in hate

            Where do you get this s**t. Like 49th in job creation. I am tolerant, I will not let anyone go hungry or die from lack of medical care. Unlike yourself. Go ahead, keep proving me right. You can keep calling the kettle black, but all that does is draw attention to you being the pot. You say one thing, but everyone knows it’s s**t.

          • bikejedi

            What are you talking about ? I didn’t say anything about anyone being 49th in job creation . Lets see you don’t want to see anyone go hungry …well in the Liberal utopia of Chicago we give Illegal aliens free housing free food they get jobs and job training ….meanwhile we have approx. 1200 American citizens who served in Iraq who are homeless . I do a little volunteer work with a Social group and we are trying to get Safe Haven to reprioritize for these vets but they are resistant to do so . I too don’t want to see anyone go hungry and I think American vets should come first . Millions of Americans go hungry everyday while we take care of the Muslim Brotherhood and Illegal Aliens …

          • Russell Byrd

            RUN ON BS. . . Now it’s the Muslim Brotherhood. You need medication. Let’s see, the topic of this thread is? Perry quits because of the Muslim Brotherhood. . . . You need medical help, bub.

            And what have you done for those 1200 homeless veterans? No on is going to believe your answer, but go ahead and tell us a whopper.

            I SAID 49th. I understand your problem. It is all too common with the Teatard minority. You speak and I heel. I don’t even get to bark. This entire conversation, over and over and over again, is about your right to dictate whatever is own your pea brain as fact. You change subject like changing TV channels, but I am supposed to go along. WRONG!

  • dtgraham

    I’ll always remember Perry’s response to Michelle Bachmann’s accusation that he personally pocketed $5,000.00 from Merck for pushing their HPV vaccine in Texas. She was wrong on facts as usual. He pocketed $30,000.00 in total with $5,000.00 coming in 2006 alone. That was during the Sept 2011 primary debates. He actually responded to her that, “I only took $5,000.00 from Merck.” “You think I can be bought for $5,000.00?” “I’m offended.” Then he left it at that and didn’t say anything more to her.

    In other words, his defence was…’how dare you call me a cheap whore.’ ‘I’ll have you know I’m an expensive whore.’

    • Allan Richardson

      Maybe he’s like the small town judge in an old joke. When the trial started he announced that the plaintiff’s attorney had given him $1000 (this is a VERY old joke and a VERY small town), and the defendant’s attorney had given him $1500. But he RETURNED $500 to the defense and vowed that, being equally bribed by both sides, he would judge the case honestly on its merits!

      • dtgraham

        Gotta remember that one.

    Actually, Perry is being pushed out by his own party. Ted Cruz, an Alberta Canada Big Oil Provincinal mucky muck is the TX GOP’s new reinvention. They reinvented Bush to dump 50% of the Exxon Valdez spill on taxpayers and now they will reinvent a Canadian who better be prepared to show his birth certificate, by the way, into a swaggering boom boom blowhard Texas GOP bull male. Just what the world needs another phony Texan swaggering across the globe…NOT.

    • idamag

      Somehow, I have always seen Texas as thinking they are one big John Wayne Movie in action.

      • Eleanore Whitaker

        I agree. I have to tell you. When I visited Montana, I was expecting the men there to be like what I saw in TX. They were nothing like that at all. No swaggering, no bull head male egos and I have to tell you, Montana men are gorgeous with a capital “G.” If you can get past those long, long legs, you see Montana men are genuine and decent guys. It was so refreshing to meet real men who work hard and live clean with a true respect for their land.

        I used to love John Wayne, but that was when I was uninformed. Now I know that he was a bully, bigot, and draft dodger that never had to do a real day’s work in his life. A big man that had everything given to him. When he railed against Liberals, I just felt he was an example of what is truly wrong with right wing, and the worst of America. AND then he did the “Green Berets.” A movie done for no other reason than to convince young men of the need to go to Southeast Asia and kill, OR die. And of course, to make money doing it, as well.

  • Mary Ann Hoogeveen

        It’s not violence to make him clean a house. But he does seem to be unaccustomed to REAL work.

        • GreginPottsville

          Dude, you are referring to the wrong comment. I understand how liberals don’t look before they run. The one I clearly referred to was:

          “Hillary would do to him what most women would like to do to him,beat him into the ground,it would be a pleasure to watch.”

          Now that isn’t advocating violence to you?

        • Russell Byrd

        This liberal takes much delight in being a bitch and why let the GOP/baggers enjoy all the violence.

  • Allan Richardson

    Pro-life Republicans believe that human life before birth is sacred, but not after birth. To be more precise, they believe that YOUR life is LESS sacred than THEIR money. Therefore, they refuse to spend money to save the lives of people outside their personal circle, only to make “those” people’s lives miserable, powerless, and short.

    • Sand_Cat

      No Republican I have ever met is pro-life. Certainly none of the trolls who post on this site are pro-life. The modern Republican party is one of the most anti-life, anti-family organizations is U.S. History. Valuing a fertilized egg that hasn’t even implanted more than a woman is not what I consider “pro life” or “choosing life,” and when combined with the GOP’s anti-human, anti-nature stance on virtually every other issue, it is astounding to me that anyone could even use the term without gagging.

      • GreginPottsville

        Well you might want to step out of your bubble, because I know plenty of Republicans that are pro-life. In fact, I don’t know one Republican personally that is “anti-human” in any way, shape, or form. If you ever got out of your bubble to get to know others and not be so intolerant of others, you won’t gag. You might just learn something, especially how wrong your assumptions are.

      • Allan Richardson

        I agree. The REAL sense of priorities for them is this: the life of an UNBORN child is sacred (to the extent of preventing an abortion, but NOT to the extent of helping poor women get prenatal care to PROTECT that life). The life of a child already born is NOT sacred to them unless the child is part of their circle of acquaintances. And most of all, with the exception of their OWN children (if even them), someone ELSE’s life is less sacred than THEIR MONEY. They certainly do not want their money going to keep poor kids or adults healthy enough to stay alive and do productive work and pay them back by paying taxes.

        • GreginPottsville

          Who is against poor women getting prenatal care? Do you know anyone that is? I don’t.
          Do you know anyone that doesn’t want to help poor kids or keep adults who need care alive? Can you name one person and who actually said they don’t want to help poor kids or who actually said they don’t want adults to “stay alive”? Where in the world do you liberals come up with such nonsense?

          • Allan Richardson

            By looking at right wing conservative state budgets and the conservative proposal for the federal budget. And it’s not about the debt, because running up a debt for WAR, and spending vast amounts to PROSECUTE people under the “less regulation” abortion rules, doesn’t count.

            On a one to one basis, conservatives can have a great deal of compassion for poor people whom they KNOW PERSONALLY, but they vote for politicians who vote for budgets and tax laws that tax the poor more, cut the wages of the poor, turn down money ALREADY BUDGETED by the feds to boost Medicaid, cut food stamps when jobs are being sent overseas, etc etc. And they then justify it by saying that all the poor people they DO NOT personally know are “takers” and “lazy” but never check the facts which would disprove it.

            Yes, people without insurance have to be treated in an ER (at much HIGHER cost to taxpayers than a fully paid medical insurance plan would cost), but that only stabilizes the patient’s immediate crisis. If they find that the patient needs long term intervention to prevent the next ER (or morgue) visit, all they can do is RECOMMEND a doctor’s visit. And people without insurance CANNOT PAY FOR that visit. And until Obamacare kicks in for everybody, people who have ANY condition requiring medical supervision, even if they are outwardly healthy, cannot get insurance at any price, because all companies are FREE to decline them as customers, and ALL the competing companies decline them (like trying to buy a house in a white neighborhood in the 1950’s if you were black).

            If you cancel your own health insurance and live on food stamps for six months and happen to be injured or get sick in that time, you will know what the “takers” are taking from you.

          • GreginPottsville

            Uh, come back to earth man. Who exactly “cut the wages of the poor”? Who exactly “tax the poor more”? Do you know one person, one, in the United States that died due to any cut in food stamps? If food stamps are being cut by the way, why are a record # of Americans on them? Do you know one person today that has no insurance due to a pre-existing condition? (Hint, nobody can be turned down dude…shhhh… ) Just name one now. You can cancle your health insurance now, and get injured or sick, and buy insurance the same day. So really, your post is a bunch of lies or you are just that plain out of touch with reality.

          • bikejedi

          Who told you that ? Joy Behar ? hahaha that is such nonsense . No one I know doesn’t want a safety net for the needy we are tired however of funding the lazy …And no one I know is against pre natal care especially if it prevents an abortion . By the way those that are indoctrinated into entitlements rarely become productive . When there is no incentive to get off of them and they are just comfortable enough to get by people get lazy …that is why there are so many ghettos in Dem cities . All that social spending has only increased poverty and made it generational …Maybe a different approach is necessary . Social programs and welfare haven’t worked and make work jobs haven’t helped . The Liberal a war on poverty for decades and your approach has only fueled more poverty …Im not about to say I have all the answers but what I just stated no intelligent liberal would dispute .

          • Russell Byrd

            In other words, you are willing to starve the 95% in order to get rid of the 5% that will not contribute. Odd that you mention GOD earlier, because according to Christ’s teachings, you are unforgivably in the wrong. Remember him, CHRIST-ian.

            So for the record, intelligent Liberals do not agree with you, because you are quite simply taking the crazy train. You confuse your bigotry and hatred with common-sense and Christian charity. As long as you arrogantly do that, you and yours, ARE LOST.

      • bikejedi

        It seems you got that 180 degrees wrong . Many Conservatives and Republicans are pro life . And while the Dems cheerlead the disintegration of the family unit the Republicans fight for family . The Dems want single parent homes dependent on welfare . that is their plan and they are executing it in all their cities . I don’t what you refer to as an anti human stance ,..and I really don’t want an answer as it will just be more inane nonsense not backed up by fact just liberal feeling and talking points

          No, there not. The posts above have been repeated in some form probably millions of times. All were, and still are true. You cannot just wave your hand and make the truth false. Allan Richardson’s post is a PERFECT description of right-wing rationalizations. WE both know it is the truth. Unfortunately, one of us wants to be able to bully everyone else into believing falsely. Make of it what you will. Yours is a waste of breath, and bandwidth.

          You haven’t got a clue. Your characterization of the Democrats is largely BS talking points from FOX and other spokesmen for the lunatic right. You obviously don’t know jackshit about what’s happening, and I bet you have the temerity to call yourself (gag) “pro-life.”

          There are near 1000 right-wing, WHITE, hate groups in America. Estimates range from 800 to maybe 1300, or more. Since Obama’s election, the number has quadrupled. Of course, in your eyes, nothing to do with racism.

          Now, there are 3, as in three, black hate groups, one of which is right-wing (as incredible as it may seem).

          Add to that all the suspect, but relatively benign militias, and I wonder who we need to fear at the polls? Hmmm?

      • Russell Byrd

        More trolling? That statement has nothing to do with reality. Even when the South was dominated by Democrats, the Repunks were far from pure. Then when civil-rights came along, all the racists became Repricks, or “repented.” So, the only Jim Crow in the last 50 years is entirely do to your scum-bag Republiscum heroes.

        THANKS FOR MAKING AN ASS OF YOURSELF. You needed no assistance on that bogus piece of history. Once again, just because you can say it, does not make it true. Rather, the fact that you do say it, means it must be taken as a lie automatically. You do not get the fact that right-wing lies are doing all the recruiting we need to do you in at the next election.

    Since when is sex education not allowed in schools? When was birth control banned? Am I missing something here?”

    I Love when I can answer a question directly Greg! When you finally get off the FAUX new teet, and read something real, you just might learn something!

    1. In Texas, a GOP-backed bill would make it illegal for any organization that provides abortions, or is affiliated with an abortion clinic, to provide sex education or materials to public schools. The bill is specifically aimed at Planned Parenthood, which has already seen its funding slashed by Texas Gov. Rick Perry. (Because of these funding cuts, Texas is expected to see nearly 24,000 unplanned births next year, and nearly 200,000 Texas women have lost or could lose access to family planning and preventative care.)

    For Mr. Bike…

    Victorious? Sick maybe. After the fever pitched hysteria and bombardment of
    lies, what did you win? Dick of the year? Yep.

    I did not read yesterdays rants, but I have had ample reports of what they
    said. However, it was impossible not to notice that your posts were chaotic. I
    guess you really lost . . . IT. So go on your little lying, trolling way. The
    one thing disgraceful about total stupidity is failing to realize that no one
    believes the nonsense you hold so dear.

    You single-handedly racked up almost as many negative votes as I have ever seen
    in a blog. Remarkable, since unregistered readers cannot even give a
    negative vote. Your posts have about the same effect as food poisoning on
    the public.

    What you did manage to win, after being verbally bashed on every post, exposed
    as a closeted self-loathing fairy, a pathological liar, a sock puppet for the
    right-wing propagandists that hold you in contempt, and a total jerk that lives
    in his parent’s house [basement?] and smells like a billy goat, is that there
    is no point in my continuing to whoop up on your sorry a**. There is nothing
    more in it for me.

    Unlike yourself, I have a life, a job, a family. You can continue to bully
    and lie from the comfort of whatever cesspool your parent’s will let you live
    in. I cannot stop you, but really, there is no point as you have a meaningless
    and pathetic life.

    Everyone knows what that “self-employed” means. You just spend your
    time dicking around. You are just what is known as a “good-time
    Charlie.” but someday you will regret the waste of all your years pursuing
    your puerile entertainments. I do sincerely feel sorry for your parents, but I
    guess they do love you dearly. That love is misplaced, but very natural, unlike
    their dear son. Now, you can post to your heart’s content, though I know we
    will meet again, when I will give you another good spanking. Bye girlie. . .
