Sorry, Rocket99,

But different subjects are posted every day. And some days the suggested article is never mentioned. It seems to be a [to each his own] site.

And my own is who in the hell is that man in the White House that refuses to identify himself and why does Congress not question him?

Just accept him because he's there doesn't mean you are right. It just makes you look ignorant.

Now I realize that I have no patience with underclass tripe like yourself so I will just allow the words "self-employment tax" on a million dollar a year income. Then add that to the top rate of income at 39.6% and assume that the only deductions are property taxes.

You tried to be a pimp once as I recall, but like your attempt at being a hippy, this too was a failure. Your ladies keep the money and found someone better. LOL

People should be able to fall in love and marry who ever they want.

That would be "whomever" and soon it will also be "whatever".

Marriage between a man and a woman is for procreation - to create a family. Two men or two women cannot naturally create a child. I agree with Obama on this one - marriage is between a man and a woman.

Now bud, there you go. What ever is such a nasty term and very unbecoming a religious person as you keeps telling us. I said earlier that there are a people that think that God can not stand up and do God’s own business….well if the shoe fits.

With your intelligence, you're only 'speaking' for yourself, bfra.

You still like style and wit on your come backs, yogi. LOL

By: yogiman on 3/27/13 at 9:10

Did you mean "like" or lack, dumba$$. I like facts, far from what you're lacking.

By: gdiafante on 3/27/13 at 9:11

The issue is closed, yogi. If you have further questions, consult a Constitutional law expert.

I urge everyone to completely ignore yogi from now on. That means you too Nemo. Just don't reply. To hell with him.

By: yogiman on 3/27/13 at 9:14

Hate to see you go, gdiafante. Before you go, how about checking out www.theobamafile.com/_eligibility/whattobelieve.htm/ and tell me why all of those articles (newspapers) are wrong.

By: Captain Nemo on 3/27/13 at 9:19

By: yogiman on 3/16/13 at 9:04
I accept you all aren't as dumb as I

By: Captain Nemo on 3/27/13 at 9:21

It has been done before gdia and there is always someone that keeps talking to the dope.

I except you challenge once more.

By: dargent7 on 3/27/13 at 9:27

All SCOTUS are filthy rich and intellectual snobs.
They are 99% out of touch with reality living in America.....especially the middle class.
They only know people like Mit Romney. Other rich fat cats.
Why they voted to say a Corp. is "a person".
Roe v. Wade in 1974 was a miracle ruling.
Gays are genetically "gay".
There's no "cure", no therapy to reverse their sexual orientation, etc.
Impossible to do, a waste of time, irrelevant.
They are humans and deserve all human rights.
Let them marry and receive Federal/ State benefits.
Period.

By: gdiafante on 3/27/13 at 9:32

Thanks nemo. I'm not sure how he got that I was leaving out of that post...reading comprehension issues...lol

By: dargent7 on 3/27/13 at 9:35

There are many baby pictures of Obama frolicing in the ocean, his mother holding him...all with palm trees in the backround.
I wasn't aware Kenya was surrounded by the ocean with palm trees.
And he graduated from Punahou H.S. at 16.
He wasn't in Kenya or Indonesia.
He was in Hawai'i.

By: Captain Nemo on 3/27/13 at 9:41

Now dargent you know that there are people that just can’t stand for people to be happy. They think by keeping same sex people apart will make them more miserable than themselves. Another possibility is that these sad people think if same sex marriages takes place that they will spin off the world.

By: govskeptic on 3/27/13 at 9:43

Just love reading the many comments from the faith haters quoting the Bible
or often misquoting it on this and like subjects. I suspect the Court will
very likely leave it to the states to individually decide the matter. Of the
9 states where it now OK, 3 decided by the voters and 6 by their legislature
or their own Supreme Court rulings.

By: Captain Nemo on 3/27/13 at 9:44

Simple minds are confused, gdia. Did you expect anything more for him? LOL

By: Rasputin72 on 3/27/13 at 9:45

Dargent...........Has it ever occurred to you that the productive class and the 1% whom you hold in such contempt picked up the $80,000 dollar medical tab you ran up recently?

Without these two classes of people 80% of those who post on this forum like yourself would fonancially be akin to last caste like exists in India.

I am sure the Indian government and the Hindu religous leaders look at the underclass ability to vote and have entitlements in the USA as good reason to keep their caste system in place.

The GOP has to get into everyone's life. What does it matter if same-sex marry? Everyone in the USA deserves to be happy and free. I believe that the Constitution makes this clear.

By: Captain Nemo on 3/27/13 at 9:47

I must have missed the faith haters quotes, gov. Any particular one you would like to point out for me.

By: bfra on 3/27/13 at 9:53

I will gladly ignore ALL of yogi's stupid comments & encourage everyone else to do the same. The only thing that would help this forum get back to where it once was, would be if the no-brain idiot was gone completely.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 3/27/13 at 9:53

gov, the people you refer to as "faith haters" are probably people who do not want someone else's religion legislated or rammed down their throat. That doesn't make them a "hater."

By: Captain Nemo on 3/27/13 at 9:54

Raspy old boy working for a Fortune 500, which takes away 50% 0f your wages most love, dorks like you. LOL

If it wasn’t for the low self esteem women and men in your life, you would have died years ago.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 3/27/13 at 9:54

Pointing out the Bible's contradictions or inconsistancies doesn't make a person a "hater" either.

By: Captain Nemo on 3/27/13 at 9:57

That is not going to happen, bfra. He will remain as long as CP and people bring up his name.

By: Captain Nemo on 3/27/13 at 10:00

Oh those Bible haters. Thanks for clearing that up Blanket. ;-}

By: gdiafante on 3/27/13 at 10:01

I agree, blanket. Gov missed the point completely.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 3/27/13 at 10:02

People like gov should aquaint themselves with the Treaty of Tripoli which clearly states that the U.S. is not a Christian nation.

By: Captain Nemo on 3/27/13 at 10:07

I think with all of Raspy riches he should go out into the world and buy a country and make himself King and just have upper class people live there.

By: Captain Nemo on 3/27/13 at 10:07

I can remember him being so jealous if a white woman would prefer the company of other men over him and if that man was black you could just see his blood pressure rise and his face turn red.

By: Captain Nemo on 3/27/13 at 10:13

I think that religion only gets in the way God and people. Then you have people that let money be there God, whither they have money or only wish they had it.

Panel Four from the Jefferson Memorial

"I am not an advocate for frequent changes in laws and constitutions, but laws and institutions must go hand in hand with the progress of the human mind. As that becomes more developed, more enlightened, as new discoveries are made, new truths discovered and manners and opinions change, with the change of circumstances, institutions must advance also to keep pace with the times. We might as well require a man to wear still the coat which fitted him when a boy as civilized society to remain ever under the regimen of their barbarous ancestors."

By: govskeptic on 3/27/13 at 10:14

I don't need the Treaty of Tripoli there Nazi, our President has indicated that as well. And who is to argue with that. The simple history of civilization and the science
of biology makes me think it's not such a good idea. But most of all it's a revenue
loser for our Federal government and that's shameful as well as a possible sin
upon the poor and hungry.

By: bfra on 3/27/13 at 10:15

Nemo I can't imagine any man with his over inflated ego & inferiority complex having anything to impress a woman.

By: dargent7 on 3/27/13 at 10:15

Rasp: Yes. And your end was probably .25cents.
And it was $105,000.

By: Captain Nemo on 3/27/13 at 10:19

The .25 cents was not his d7. LOL

By: Captain Nemo on 3/27/13 at 10:21

You can say the religion is a revenue loser for the government too gov.

By: bfra on 3/27/13 at 10:25

d7 - I doubt Raspy could cover .25 cents most days.

By: Captain Nemo on 3/27/13 at 10:29

You should read up the real Rasputin, bfra. Thou Raspy is not as successful as his namesake, he can do damage to the unaware that falls in his web of deceit. With mentioning any names there are two on this board that think he is rich.

By: Rasputin72 on 3/27/13 at 10:40

Underclass culture and lack of morality is hard to understand until one comes face to face and thought process to thought process with it. Only until I began to post on this forum have I come to grips with the fact that these "people" deserve and can never escape their circumstances. No matter how many chances they are no matter how many tutors they are given their genetics will allow their advancement or escape.

I give you Dargent7. He thinks I paid .25cents for his blood sucking affair. It is as though he has no idea how many of the 47% have circumstances like his every year.

.25 cents here and .25 cents there add up to real money after a while.

I must go out into the world of intellectual stimulation in order to rid myself of the stench
of failure and failed birth.

I take leave for today and trust that the mental masturbation will continue without a voice of reason.

By: bfra on 3/27/13 at 10:42

Nemo - He reveals a lot about himself in his comments & doesn't have sense enough to know it. Then contradicts himself on so many issues that reveals how insecure he is.

By: brrrrk on 3/27/13 at 10:45

Gee, could this be Raspy, our picture of success?

Here you go with your lies, Raspy old boy. I remember when you live off your grandmother’s Social Security checks and then off women that has low self-esteem of themselves. Now you toss this carbage about you not understand underclass a lack of morals. After all of these years you have not bettered your acting skill than you had 40 yrs ago. LOL

By: Captain Nemo on 3/27/13 at 10:55

LOL brrrrk

It has been 40 yrs are more since I last saw him and if this is him he has doubled in size.

By: bfra on 3/27/13 at 10:55

brrrrk - You found Raspy's personal web site! LOL

Judging from his gaming profile I'd say he lives with mommie and daddy and doesn't do much but sit on his ass.....

I could be wrong, but seriously.... how many Rasputin72's do you think could be out there?

By: Captain Nemo on 3/27/13 at 11:00

I will have to admit that he is better off than I suspected. He has double his assets. LOL

By: Captain Nemo on 3/27/13 at 11:09

You know the old boy won’t admit to that being him. However it does have his dumb grin.

By: bfra on 3/27/13 at 11:22

brrrrk - That pretty much fits the mental image I had of Raspy.

By: dargent7 on 3/27/13 at 11:31

Raspy: As you may know, many conditions that are "pre-existing" prevent one from receiving Medical Insurance.
Even though you don't give a sh!t, many conscious, serene, thoughtful Americans, DO.
I'm quite sure you get and maintain your erections every time you hear the Pentagon needs, and gets, another $85 billion for Afghanistan.
Your besides yourself knowing the 10 years in Iraq cost well over $1.0 trillion.
And, along with other mental defectives, eg., yogi, feel GW Bush was a terrific President with incredible leadership qualities.
Throw in the Club, Cheney, who "wouldn't change a thing".
Dementia creeps up on you, you know.
