It is their business what they put in their magazine and the fringe will have their say about it.

This week ending question;

Will Raspy complain about his meager existencei (sic)?

By: Rasputin72 on 7/18/13 at 9:35
It always makes me feel good see the dip shits make comments that reflect meager existencei (sic)?

Will Comrade yogi expose his ignorance; by tell all that disagrees with him, that they are showing their ignorance?

Will budlight give us another hypocritical sermon and tell us how godly she is?

Will the flea jumble his speech and say?
“goddamninfant: What about the "Free Exercise" clause?”

What ever that means.

By: bfra on 7/19/13 at 7:11

Nemo - Your posted questions sums up the MO of the subjects. Now that is meager existence in a nutshell, Raspy, Comrade yogi, bud & the flea. What a circus?

Another black teen gunned down by a vengeful white man--who then claims innocence.
But I'm sure he was a certified gun carrier and we know they never ever EVER break the law.
http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/news/spooner-darius-simmons-shooting-trial-170359879.html

Was the teen just standing there minding his own(sic) business? Or robbing something?

And this old man was found guilty cause it was on HIS security tape. So this is not similar to Trayvon in any way, except that it was white on black crime. But statistically, it's black on black and black on white which ranks highest.

Then this morning;

Morning bfra!

By: bfra on 7/19/13 at 7:33

Mornin' Nemo! Reaction to the magazine: I have never bought & will never buy said magazine. To each his own & that is my right!

By: Captain Nemo on 7/19/13 at 7:44

bfra-

I did not know why CP had asked the question and having the time to watch the news, I did not know until this morning. Some police officer released some photos of the night they captured the Terrorist suspect, to show a different light on the matter. That officer has been disciplined for that action. I suppose for putting the case in potential Danger or something.

By: bfra on 7/19/13 at 7:48

Nemo - If said officer was there at the time of capture, I wonder what was he doing with a camera & how did he have time to take pictures?

“This is a profoundly serious experiment in American justice,” he said. “Can we give a fair trial to the least popular man in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts? I’m sure we can, but why make it more difficult?”

By: gdiafante on 7/19/13 at 7:53

I was just about to comment on the issue of a fair trial. It would also seem that if they were concerned about him getting undo publicity, getting into a pissing contest about which photos best illustrate the suspect's true nature may not be the best idea.

By: Captain Nemo on 7/19/13 at 7:53

bfra-

I don’t know if I can blame the State police officer for this, but it does cause a legal situation now. It will make it some what more difficult to prosecute.

This is a stupid action something like yogi, bud or the flea would do.

Nemo - Per that article, I agree with Sgt. Sean Murphy on a limited basis. Wasn't aware of tactical photographers in the police dept. but it is probably good for evidence. I think if they wanted this guy on the cover, it should have been done in a way to depict what a sleesy coward he was.

By: bfra on 7/19/13 at 8:19

guess that should be "sleezy"! Either way, the guy is a total sleeze bag.

By: Captain Nemo on 7/19/13 at 8:23

I wonder if the DA agrees. Could this be ammunition for the Defense?

how can shit on a stick on stick afford a paper of an kind?

By: Captain Nemo on 7/19/13 at 8:26

I give up, Raspy old boy. How do you?

By: budlight on 7/19/13 at 8:27

The big question for me is Why didn't Eric Holder of the justice department issue a witch hunt for information about the boston bombers similar to the one he issued for George Zimmerman?

Oh, I know the answer. No one who was black was killed in Boston. And I bet the maimed and injured were all white as well.

Eric Holder is wasting our tax dollars pandering to the likes of sharpton and jackson. Shame on Eric Holder & the obama administration.

I agree with Sgt. Murphy and don't think he should lose his job over this. And there were pictures all over the place when the murdering boston bomber was captured, so what's new?

By: Captain Nemo on 7/19/13 at 8:29

how (sic) can shit on a stick on stick afford a paper of an(sis) kind?

You seem to be posting from inside a bottle this morning, old boy.

By: Captain Nemo on 7/19/13 at 8:32

If I was Eric holder, I would be think bud was stalking me.

What is the matter bud…not getting what you want at home?

By: bfra on 7/19/13 at 8:32

Nemo - From the comments, that seems to be 2 posting from inside a bottle! :-) Maybe that is where bud & Raspy spent the nite.

Even if it cost the case? Good thinking bud.

By: Captain Nemo on 7/19/13 at 8:36

When you post stupid comments like this bud, you see why I call you Government waste.

By: budlight on 7/19/13 at 8:56

nemo, did you say something? speak up! can't hear ya.

Eric Holder is a jerk for having a witch hunt similar to the salem witch hunts. I know of no case in history when an attorney general has ask the public to dig up dirt on a private citizen. I hope George Zimmerman can sue him and win.

The media keeps saying "zimmerman identifies as hispanic". Cripes! He is Hispanic. So if black and BROWN people are being persecuted, well Zimmerman is BROWN.

And the pics of the boston bomber are not shocking. They are pictures of a guy who was in a gun battle with police; I'd say that would be evidence of guilt or else why didn't he just stop running and say "here I am and I'll talk to you cause I'm not guilty".

Ran over his own brother with a car. Probably so brother couldn't talk about him to cops. He even looks devious.

What an absolutely ignorant statement.

Personally, I'm getting tired of discussing this issue. The verdict was given, the DOJ may or may not go after that stupid "stand your ground" law. As that GOP rep said, get over it.

The definition of insanity is democrats passing a bill that NO ONE read first. Remember Nancy said that we'd know what was in it AFTER it passed? The nasty details are coming out now.

And no, health care is not getting cheaper or better.

“In figures released last week, the Congressional Budget Office said it had erased hundreds of billions of dollars in projected spending on Medicare and Medicaid. The budget office now projects that spending on those two programs in 2020 will be about $200 billion, or 15 percent, less than it projected three years ago.”

"The law is working the way it's supposed to do for middle-class Americans," Obama said in a White House speech where he was flanked by handful of the 8.5 million Americans who this summer are receiving rebates averaging about $100 as a result of the Affordable Care Act.

The new law's rules mandate that insurers either spend at least 80 percent of their premium dollars on health care instead of on overhead, or rebate some of those premiums.

For states that have decided to be proactive and work for the wellbeing of all their citizens and small businesses, the Affordable Care Act, Obamacare, is being implemented successfully. There will be bumps but it will be successful where politicians start supporting it as opposed to putting obstacles in its way to attempt to cause it to fail for ideological reasons.

http://www.dailykos.com/story/2013/07/17/1224407/-Obamacare-Is-Working-Believe-Republican-Naysayers-At-Your-Peril

It's working better in the states that are working with it instead of against it.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 7/19/13 at 10:01

Obamacare is not a panacea. Obamacare is a good start. It is true that health insurance companies in the short term will benefit from all the taxpayer provided government subsidies afforded to those who must buy health insurance from these private insurance companies (a wealth transfer from the many to the few). However, in a system where every politician is bought and owned my moneyed interests, Obamacare was a middle class coup.

By: BenDover on 7/19/13 at 10:10

How is that a good thing Blanket? One person somehow magically wins because someone else loses? That's a flawed zero sum mentality founded in class envy. The fact is these plans are already underwriting a large portion of the costs hospitals have for people who cannot afford services.

Rush Limbaugh's $1 million bionic ear might seem atrocious in the respect that other deaf people couldn't afford it at the time it was developed. The fact that he and people like him did have the money to create a market for the break-through technology though is the reason why the technology is far more affordable today to average families.

Egalitarianism as a goal is a fools errand because so much of what we all depend on is based on exceptional performance and expenditure others both directly and indirectly.

Bullsh!t blanket... they're just going down the same failed path we went with Tenncare 15 years ago.

And what does that mean "the law is working the way it's supposed to do for middle class Americans"? And how does it work for poor or rich americans.

REBATES of $100 as a result of spending how much? Rebate of $100! JOKE. That's about 1 week of groceries for a family of 2 to 4.

Blanket, get rid of the koolaide. Jim Jones of Guyana is dead and no one else wants to drink. We are tired of Obama(don't)care. He's just postponing the side effects and costs till after the mid-term elections. It's so transparent.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 7/19/13 at 10:42

Just keep on going down that river of de-nial. Republicans are fighting so hard because they're SCARED it will work. If they are so confident that it's a failure, why not sit back and wait and focus on getting something accomplished in the meantime?

By: Blanketnazi2 on 7/19/13 at 10:42

Obamacare and Tenncare are not nearly the same thing, Ben. You're smarter than that.

It's nice how your cause de jure seems to coincide directly with the more recent White House talking points, Blanket.

I look forward to it (the Healthcare reform). As one with no insurance, I just this morning had a prescription that I can't get filled because it cost over $100. That's just ridiculous!
