Romney & Corker must both be on leashes to common paymasters....no surprise there....they all have sold out to the special interests....there's not a clean member of congress....they are all on the take and it's 100% legal....the Founders would be stupefied to witness this degradation of our Republic's ideals and our hard-won democracy....it's quite disgusting.

He is a commie agent, what do expect from his traitor.

Brrrrk, nice quote there...very revealing....these right-wingers are bent on bringing the temple down, Samson style....they can't wait for 2016, they want BHO out now....anything can happen at this point....the self-described "patriots" could get out of control....mass hysteria could spread like the plague.....the masses are asses.

By: Captain Nemo on 8/7/13 at 9:39

I see this as a good thing. Maybe the Republicans are seeing a way to rid themselves from the nutty right-wing fruitcakes.

I thought I woulsd slip fruitcake in one more time.

By: Captain Nemo on 8/7/13 at 9:39

shb would.

By: Loner on 8/7/13 at 9:41

Of course, the fruited plain would be awash in fruitcakes....fruits and nuts are us.

Want a little good reading this weekend, folks? check out the Bing or Google [communist goals in 1963] and note how many of those goals they have succeeded in so far.

You'll love it if you're a fellow communist of Barry's.

By: Loner on 8/7/13 at 9:45

America has gone beyond being a banana republic; we are now a fruitcake republic....we have upstaged the tin-pot dictatorships....we made history....let's all take a bow....a dynastic democracy serving the special interests....that's what we have become.

By: yogiman on 8/7/13 at 9:48

Question: What did Barry mean when Keyes questioned is eligibility for office and he said; "So what, I am running for Illinois Senator, not the presidency"? Why such a remark in a state senate race?

By: brrrrk on 8/7/13 at 9:52

Hey Yogi, want to read something really socialist.... read the official Republican party platform of 1956...

http://www.presidency.ucsb.edu/ws/?pid=25838

Pro labor, pro worker, pro public education, pro civil service, and (hold your breathe on this one) pro civil rights......

By: Captain Nemo on 8/7/13 at 9:54

Is part of that 1963 hoax that the American tax payer will foot the bill to have diapers changed, Comrade yogi?

By: bfra on 8/7/13 at 9:55

Well after tomorrow, brainless blob won't have this site to spew his venom. Bet his neighbors wish the same thing. I have talked to several people in his area that know of what is known as the town idiot & not 1 ever had anything close to nice to say about him. Always, referred to as the town idiot!

By: brrrrk on 8/7/13 at 9:55

Oh I left out pro union..... OH MY GOD!!!!

"Workers have benefited by the progress which has been made in carrying out the programs and principles set forth in the 1952 Republican platform. All workers have gained and unions have grown in strength and responsibility, and have increased their membership by 2 millions.

Furthermore, the process of free collective bargaining has been strengthened by the insistence of this Administration that labor and management settle their differences at the bargaining table without the intervention of the Government. This policy has brought to our country an unprecedented period of labor-management peace and understanding. "

I wish that yogi and bud would be as honest in their hate of the President and freethinking people as the flea. In his demented way, he is a refreshing ass.

You can't get this through your thick liberal skull, nemo. I do not hate president o'bama. I do not know him personally, so how can I hate him. I DO NOT LIKE HIS POLICIES. What part of that statement don't you comprehend?

bfra, how's ole' becky doing? ring-a-ling, ding-a-ling bell. I'd rather be a southern bell than a northern ding-a-ling anyday. Tell her high for me and she can quit worrying . . . . no one really cares.

Question:

Why did Lamar Alexander say: "I am carefully reviewing the bill that passed out of the Judiciary Committee now and I will review any amendments to senate considers as we debate this issue. Our borders are not secure. Millions illegally here have de facto amnesty. At the same time we are excluding scientists and workers who could help grow our economy. It is the constitutional responsibility of the president and Congress to write the rules for a legal immigration system and then to enforce it. I will be voting to secure our borders, and end de facto amnesty, and to establish an immigration system that respects the rule of law."

In speaking for Bob Corker, why did spokeswoman Laura Herzoq say: "No, he hasn't taken a position. The Judiciary Committee just completed its work, and we're still reviewing the bill they reported out of committee. Senator Corker is optimistic that we have an opportunity to do something that is productive for our country, but the details matter, and we expect there will be a lengthy debate with many amendments when the bill comes to the floor of the Senate."

Why then, after those statements, did they vote in favor of the amnesty bill? What made them change their minds?

By: Captain Nemo on 8/7/13 at 10:06

First off bimbo cow I am not a liberal (not that there is anything wrong in being one) but your hate for the President and freethinking stands.

Nemo - sidiot is so dumb, she thinks as a transplant she is Southern! As a born & raised Tennessean, I can laugh at anything the old fat hag says! Hi Becky, whoever you are.

By: yogiman on 8/7/13 at 10:22

If I'm called the town idiot to your feeble mind bfra, please tell me why I get so many complimentary remarks about my letters to the editor? I've only had one in disagreement over all of these years.

Has my objection to a usurper in office changed their minds? Why hasn't any of them cited me on the issue?

By: MamaG on 8/7/13 at 10:25

Gosh, these end of days are getting nasty!

Welcome back, Loner! Hope you had loads of fun on your retreat!

Corker is a real corker!

By: bfra on 8/7/13 at 10:27

Show PROOF of anybody complimenting anything you do. Do you even know what PROOF is you old fool? That is PROOF P-R-O-0-F!

I didn't know they still published the Weekly Reader, let alone accept editorials.... maybe he means Highlights?

By: Captain Nemo on 8/7/13 at 10:46

Hi MamaG! How are you today?

By: bfra on 8/7/13 at 10:46

The blob likes to cut & paste every gossip or propaganda site he can find but can't find 1 compliment he has ever received on his LIES! Now that is funny!

By: Captain Nemo on 8/7/13 at 10:47

Comrade yogi for every one good complement you get there are 1000 bad. You are The Village Idiot.

I hear he gets most of his editorials published in Aluminum Hat Monthly; The Magazine for the Fashionable Aluminum Hat Aficionado.

The cow post under a new name at the Tennessean.

By any other name bud will still smell.

A troll can not hide under another bridge and not be a ...troll.

Once a bud...ing liar always a bud...ing liar.

I ask you, is there a bigger dick-head on the face of the planet that "Jughead"?
I mean, including Russia, Iceland, Sudan, Kenya, and Detroit?
What will this worthless piece of shit do when TCP closes up shop?
Probably shop at Walmart at 2:30am with the other freaks.

By: yogiman on 8/7/13 at 11:00

Proof is facts, bfra. You obviously don't know what facts mean. All you know is how to post is 'you're a liar' without any facts. So what is to make anyone think you're telling the truth when you refuse to prove you're right?

It takes than 'I just said it', bfra.

By: yogiman on 8/7/13 at 11:07

The 1956 platform of the republicans is interesting, brrrrk. Have you compared them to the 1956 democratic platform?

Nemo - sidiot is so dumb, she thinks as a transplant she is Southern! As a born & raised Tennessean, I can laugh at anything the old fat hag says! Hi Becky, whoever you are.

bfra is dumb and arrogant. I was born in SOUTHERN CA and raised in SOUTHERN VA, so I'm about as southern as they come. I just don't talk with marbles in my mouth, drawling and drooling like you'uns raised in Tennessee do. You, being the poster woman for "old fat hags" should know.

You are an example o f the tennessee statistics on obesity; you are the example of tennessee's poorly structured education system and you are part of the functioning insane in TN.

bfra, shut up. No one except libtards are paying any attention to you'uns and we all know how much value that is -- ZERO!

Wow. Bantering with you is such a thrill. You snag your jaw on the bait and hook every time, now, don't 'cha honey child! You try, I know you do. Bless your little ole' pea pickin' heart. I know God counts you as one of his special children!

By: MamaG on 8/7/13 at 11:09

Hiya, Captain! How is your convention going?

dargent7, I agree with you 100%.

Hey Sidney, Did you go and "warn" Lois about me? Bet she patted you on the head and sent you on your way, all the while rolling her eyes....

By: Captain Nemo on 8/7/13 at 11:14

It starts tomorrow MamaG, I am taking it easy for now. Just relaxing in the room and taking strolls from time to time exploring the place.

By: Captain Nemo on 8/7/13 at 11:16

bud say it is such a thrill to banter with bfra.

Translation;

I'm so lonely.

By: Captain Nemo on 8/7/13 at 11:17

I thought that was funny too, brrrrk.

Cap, don't know if you like frozen custard. I'm a huge fan of it. If you do you've got to go to this place....

I'll try it out brrrrk. Thank you!

The Carthage Courier isn't called the Weekly Reader brrrrk, even though it's only printed weekly.

And yes, they do accept editorials. They call them 'Letters to the Editor'. Maybe you should subscribe and read what I write when I submit a LTE so you can make a stupid comment on it.

I'm sure they would consider letting you to write an inane comment on a letter I wrote.

By: MamaG on 8/7/13 at 11:28

budlight, you are pathetic. You are no true Christian. You certainly are no beauty queen, it's doubtful that you are much of a woman and most assuredly, you are not and never will be a Southern woman.

By: Jughead on 8/7/13 at 11:29

Now, how many days do you liberal retards have left to sit around doing nothing all day but post ignorance on this message board?

Hahahaha--silence is near, and you azzhat libtards will just have to have a gay rights parade instead.

By: Jughead on 8/7/13 at 11:31

My advice to you liberal pukes: GET A JOB.

By: MamaG on 8/7/13 at 11:31

Sounds cool, Nemo!

Yogi, how many people read the Carthage Courier? You act like it's the friggin New York or LA Times!!!

By: Jughead on 8/7/13 at 11:32

Did I mention that I HATE liberals? Every slimey unemployed one of them?

By: Captain Nemo on 8/7/13 at 11:33

Wow, The Carthage Courier..... that must have a readership upwards in the tens... probably read by people in such exotic far away place like Lebanon and Cookeville...

Two welfare buddies high on socialism.

Let's not forget about their Tenncare buddy, dorrrkkkkk. He's got all the free meds, and an ignorant opinion to go along with addiction.
