Up for Debate: Obama and Boehner meet

Monday, December 10, 2012 at 1:58am

On the same day President Barack Obama met in person with House Speaker John Boehner, Tennessee Sen. Bob Corker came out as in favor for raising taxes on the top 2 percent of households as a bargaining tool for deeper spending cuts on social programs. What do you think about these two developments in the ongoing back and forth regarding the fiscal cliff?

g, that's what other folks have said as well. I prefer not to have history sugar coated.

By: Captain Nemo on 12/10/12 at 12:07

Oh this was not sugar coated.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 12/10/12 at 12:12

I wish we would stop sugar coating Thanksgiving as well.

I loved James Spader roll and Tommy Lee Jones, too.

Daniel Day- Lewis was magnificent and so was Sally Fields.

Let me take a guess bfra. It was Killing Me Softly?

By: bfra on 12/10/12 at 12:17

Nemo - You must have missed my earlier post. LOL

By: Captain Nemo on 12/10/12 at 12:20

I'm old bfra, which post? 12:04?

By: bfra on 12/10/12 at 12:28

Nemo - Yeah lol, but anyway, it must be a movie not worth seeing.

In spite of borrowing 46 cents of every dollar we are spending, many think it would be
just too dangerous to stop this practice. Corker was right on more additional revenue,
but hell's bells we got to cut spending as well. The President wants to add more.
In the end I think the President will be in favor of more cuts than the Democrats within
the House and especially the Senate. In wacko all over D.C.

By: Captain Nemo on 12/10/12 at 12:33

I'm not sure if I have seen it or not. Let me check. Oh now I know what you are talking about. Maybe I'll wait a bit. lol

By: Loner on 12/10/12 at 12:34

Well, I gotta see the movie, "Lincoln" too...it should be a tear-jerker...I'll take a hanky.

I understand, Slack...an afterlife would be nice...but the odds of being born are so astronomical that just being here incarnate is sufficient for me....I hope that there is no post-mortem justice.... if there is, I'll just tell the Supreme Being that, in my defense, organized religion was so corrupt on my home planet, the earth-born, non-believers should be given Divine Slack...who could blame a human being on this mudball for being an atheist....look around what religion has done and is still doing.....Holy Wars Suck.


By: Captain Nemo on 12/10/12 at 12:43

Have a good protest today Loner.

By: slacker on 12/10/12 at 12:43

Loner, you have better odds of being born if your parents are conservative. lol

By: Captain Nemo on 12/10/12 at 12:50

I would not mine a long life on this planet/life. I look at being born and living as an adventure. Not something you try to own.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 12/10/12 at 12:53

gov, I agree that we need to raise revenue AND cut spending. Some of those spending cuts need to come out of foreign aid and the military.

By: bfra on 12/10/12 at 1:08

Some of them need to come right off the top of politicians, salaries & perks.

By: yogiman on 12/10/12 at 1:15

So, gdiafante,

You're saying an illegal alien woman can sneak across our border and have a baby, and that baby is a natural born citizen eligible to become president when it reaches 35 years of age.

I've always though our founders were brilliant men, not a bunch of damn idiots. And considering the sacrifices many of them made, I'll stand by that brilliant men thought.

So tell me, then, why would they rebel against the British Empire because of a hate of their ruling as subjects to gain individual freedom to pass down to their heirs? That's us, you know.

So why did they put that natural born citizen status in their President and VP requirements... so a future British subject could become president?

You keep claiming you've proved to me Obama is a natural born citizen. How can you prove it when he can't prove it himself. Damn, gdiafanti, do you know more about Obama than he himself?

By: gdiafante on 12/10/12 at 1:15

We need to revamp our entire government, as far as policy, entitlements, revenue...everything.

Yes, I laughed too.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 12/10/12 at 1:16

bfra, I would be agreeable to that as well.

By: gdiafante on 12/10/12 at 1:17

I'm not saying it, yogi, the law is. If you have a problem with it, file a suit. Othewise, do as you promised, and back off.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 12/10/12 at 1:17

g, you know that lying sack of **** can't keep his word.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 12/10/12 at 1:18

g, I actually know a good name for him. He is the community f***tard.

By: gdiafante on 12/10/12 at 1:20

Hey...don't lump us with yogi, we have standards...

If I'm such a racist as you proclaim, (of course about someone whom you have know knowledge of) why did I volunteer to stand by as a U.S Marshal in Dr. Martin Luther King's parade in Montgomery, Alabama in March 1965?

Where was you, on the other side of the highway?

You call me a racist, I call you a racist; because the only reason you can have to support Barry Soetoro aka Barack Obama is because he is a black man. And you apparently don't know anything about him, either.

By: gdiafante on 12/10/12 at 1:36

Yep...just as I said...the liar is predictable.

By: gdiafante on 12/10/12 at 2:13


By: yogiman on 12/10/12 at 3:04


You say the law is the law. Okay, let's go by the law.

It is known a child known as the stepson of Lolo Soetoro went to public school in Indonesia known as Barry Soetoro and his religion was Islam. It is known Obama acknowledges that knowledge.

It is known when he went to Columbia College he roomed with students from Pakistan. It is known when he was 20 years old in 1981, he visited his college friends in Pakistan, a nation that would not accept an American citizen in their nation.

So may I ask, what nation was he a citizen of when he visited his friends in Pakistan in 1981.

So if he had to be a citizen of another nation to visit Pakistan in 1981, when did he become a naturalized citizen of the USA? The biggest question then, is he a citizen of the United States? I honestly don't know, do you?

By: Blanketnazi2 on 12/10/12 at 3:19


Another LIE from the f***tard. Every time he opens his mouth he lies.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 12/10/12 at 3:21

yogitard from the tribe of F***tard.

By: bfra on 12/10/12 at 3:28

Thanks Blanket! Your information shows, liars never win. That is how Obama got re-elected.

By: yogiman on 12/10/12 at 3:28

Well, gdifante,

Several of your Obama admirers have referred to a movie they have seen today. Didn't you get to see one? I've saw one, too. It's title is "A Question of Eligibility". Try it, you might like it. And it only cost's 5 bucks.

If I'm permitted to use the phrase Merry Christmas, I might even buy you one for a Happy Holiday if you would give me your word you would watch it all the way through then give me your opinion.

How about it, do you want to learn why there's millions arguing this issue?

By: Blanketnazi2 on 12/10/12 at 3:29

bfra, he's the King of F***tard.

By: bfra on 12/10/12 at 3:34

This will dispute the "A Question of Eligibility":


By: Blanketnazi2 on 12/10/12 at 3:35

So in conclusion, I cannot tell from the book whether any member of law enforcement participated or whether there was any investigation at all and whether anyone worked on the project who didn’t come into it fully-wedded to the conspiracy theories about President Obama. Sheriff Joe Arpaio got some publicity and perhaps some payback for the Obama administration’s accusations of endemic racial profiling in his office, and Mr. Zullo gets a split of the profits from the sale of a "sensational" book.

All I can add is unless you’re made of some pretty strong stuff, you will be dumber for having read this book.


By: bfra on 12/10/12 at 3:36

Part of the Article is by Jerome Corsi, better know as the liar author that had his book pulled because of so many lies about Obama.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 12/10/12 at 3:37

Yep and the LIAR's movie is based on the book. What an insufferible old fool!

By: bfra on 12/10/12 at 3:39

Birthers & their ilk just don't get it. Hello! You lost the election! Big Time!

By: Blanketnazi2 on 12/10/12 at 3:39

He has yet to acknowledge any of the lies he has posted today! LOL

Care to "italianize" it for him, bfra?

By: Blanketnazi2 on 12/10/12 at 3:40

Even Ann Coulter recognizes that the election was lost!

By: bfra on 12/10/12 at 3:43

Blanket - Insufferible old fool has been established from the very first comment he put on this board.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 12/10/12 at 3:45

True. I really do feel sorry for his family. Can you imagine having to put up with this crap day in and day out?

By: bfra on 12/10/12 at 3:45

I have never known, don't now know & hope I never meet anyone as stupid.

By: bfra on 12/10/12 at 3:47

From what I have been told, if he has any family, they stay as far away as possible.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 12/10/12 at 3:48

Can't blame them for that! He's one of the most belligerantly stupid people I've encountered.

By: Captain Nemo on 12/10/12 at 4:38

I was in hopes that you had found something intelligent to talk about, but you are still talking about IBS brain.

By: Ask01 on 12/10/12 at 5:47

I don't even read most of the old trolls rantings anymore. He has the right to rant and rave, exhibiting his one track mind for all to pity, and I have the right to ignore him.

To quote Forrest Gump, "That's all I have to say about that."

As to the subject of the day, I believe the Republicans are looking for any straw they can grasp to create the illusion of compromise for a dwindling following. They have, in my opinion, no intention of biting the hand of their wealthy corporate masters who funded their campaigns.

The meeting is all smoke and mirrors; yet another failed attempt at non negotiation which will advance nothing for anyone.

By: Loner on 12/10/12 at 8:17

Back from my weekly protest...it went well...meanwhile, the troll-stricken Nashville board has finally died down...Yogi managed to get everybody's goat, to one extent or another...I even responded to the old fool's asinine taunting....my bad.

We can look forward to 4 more years of Birther BS from Yogi...unless he kicks the bucket between now and then....or finds a new posting community to torment....or the NCP Webmaster finally gives him the heave-ho.....or the NCP Editors apply a little "Troll-B-Gone", to eradicate the noxious weeds and diseased vermin.

Our admittedly mindless troll has driven away several great posters...and he derives a sadistic pleasure from that....botched brain surgery victim or not; the guy is an insufferable @sshole....he's all but ruined this site.

By: yogiman on 12/11/12 at 2:28

Stupid is as stupid does, B2. Your referral to Snopes comments is about "native" born citizen, not natural born. I believe there's a difference.

And how about using you "snooker" skill to question where the phrase title "birther" came from.

By: Captain Nemo on 12/11/12 at 3:54

Not mine Loner. The old fool is dead to me.
