    TUA, any new news on the Dorner case?

    Last I saw the cabin was burning, then everything was blotted out for the state of the union show.

    I wouldn’t dream of wasting a minute on that gong show.
    Too bad we don’t have about 300 Joe Wilsons to run Liar-in-Chief off the stage.

    I don’t allow the bastard on any TVs I own or pay cable for.

    I HATE what he and his regime of hellions are doing to this country.

    I already know that I don’t agree with one thing he stands for.

    Piss on him and his minions.

    We’re catching up on Gilligan’s Island.

    Dormer is a bit higher than room temp, due to being burned alive, but he is cooling fast.

    I watched a bit of the Liar in Chief, but am mesmerized by this kid Rubio.

    Loved his reaching down for a bottle of water…….. Oh…. CBS, just STFFU,

    The state of the union campaign speech mind fuck horse shit “address” is further evidence that our traditions and institutions are hollowed out shells. Devoid of meaning and purpose and used to manipulate the ignorant distracted people in this once great nation.

    It was painful for me as you. I had to listen even though. It was the SSDD routine and all campaign at that and if you saw the graph reading on FOX 12 million hits Baers show, showed 100 % of America disagreed big time with every freeking thing but they are still lining up for thier welfare/teleohone/unemployemnt/foodstamp dole.

    1. Obama claimed 500,000 ‘new’ manufacturing jobs over the past three years, but there has been a net loss of 600,000 manufacturing jobs since he took office. The recent growth also has stalled since July 2012.
    Fancy, not fact.
    2. He claimed that “we have doubled the distance our cars will go on a gallon of gas.” Actual mileage is improving, but Obama’s “doubled” claim refers to a desired miles-per-gallon average for model year 2025.
    Future fancy, not fact.
    3. Obama said the Affordable Care Act “is helping to slow the growth of health care costs.”
    Baloney – the slower growth for health care spending began in 2009, before the law was enacted, and is due to a weak economy, with fewer people using ‘health care’ because they are out of work, have lost employer benefits and can’t afford it.
    My own pharm copays have gone up, my doctors’ hourly rates have gone up, my Medicare deduction has gone up, and I just received a notice that the Affordable*cough*bullshit* Care*cough*spit* Act requires my employer to state the value of my insurance with them on my W2.
    Next stop will be having that taxed as ordinary income, just like my group life insurance premium has been taxed for years. What’s particularly galling about that is that neither I nor any other employees of my company could choose to opt for a cash payment instead of the insurance, which cash we could have spent, invested or paid a cash discount for medical bills, nor had we any say in the coverage in the plan.
    Whether we were single or married with ten kids, the amount of coverage was the same. I was told that my benefit package was worth $55,000/year in 1990 money. I’m just waiting to be taxed retroactively for that. It’s absolutely possible with the gang of gypsies, tramps and lying, irresponsible thieves in our current government.

    Nope!!! No way. Tell everyone what they HAVE to do when you know it’s impossible and they won’t than blame them when it doesn’t get done and you are the ONE who cares. The starting gun was fired for the second half of downfall of America.
