    A few of them get really upset if you post an opinion they disagree with, or get angry if you post and aren't on this list. They'll call you a troll.

      That's what it's all about. Everybody got an opinion and it should be heard. Off thread ranting is what most people get upset about. Look at the religion blog...same people saying the same thing every day no matter what the topic!

    Why is CNN not reporting on the fact that the Obama Administration knew within 24 hours of the attack on our embassy was ALQuida and that it was a planned attack on US soil???

      Can anyone answer the question that I just put up on here....WHY are they not reporting about knowing that it was a planned attack and they knew 24 hours after it happened. Sorry if a president can not tell the truth then he has not business being in that chair and needs to be removed.ASAP

    When the debate topic of healthcare reform arises, will either candidate mention US taxpayers spending more on drugs than on national defense as possibly being part of the problem?
    LMAO. Of course not.

    morning all. Only dummy I see is the guy in office that is doing a terrible job on EVERY level. Where are the jobs? Where is the recovery? Why is our dollar crap? Why are so many Americans on the govt teet? Why do we borrow over a billion dollars every single day? Because the dummy in office has no clue what he is doing...

    Now if you folks want to ignore all the above vote obomba. If you want to turn this debacle around vote Romney. As far as the upcoming debate goes, obomba has nothing but failure after failure to look back on. I feel just fine about Romney putting a shillacking on obomba...

    The crime of 9/11 is still on the minds of many of US. Will either candidate debate exactly why FBI whostleblower Sibel D. Edmonds and 24 Dept. of Justice officials remain under federal gag orders since solving this crime during the GW Bush admininstration?
    LMAO. Of course not.

      Sibel Edmpnds doesn't know anything. If she did, gag order be damned, she'd be talking. I would be shouting it from the rooftops personal safety aside. She doesn't know anything but it makes for good theories to chew on. Coward.

      @ Malarky, I'd hardly call numerous interviews, a book (Classified Women), and a Doc umentary (Kill the messenger) on Ms Edomonds "Knowing Nothing" or being a "Coward"
      Nice try again. 🙂

    @Candidate Romney. As an LDS (Morman) leader, you taught even children that the old Jewish Temple of ancient Israel will be rebuilt in America, and that Jesus Christ will rule the earth from there. You also taught even children of a Satan with a burning hell where bad people burn forever.
    My question is, what drugs are *you* on?

    359000 new people applied for unemployment last week alone. Why the hell is this clown even running again. Men with power trying to keep it. Just sad people ignore these type of things as they are hopelessly dependent on the govt. heck of a way to secure votes tho...

      359K applications is actually what you see during a growing economy. It's jobs created that are important now!

    Is it true that the both of you believe in Satan the burning wolf god? LMAO. but it's true!
    And NOBODY wants to talk about it and so neither candidate will debate who's hell is hotter, or exactly who gets burned. 🙂

    @ Jay Jay, yea its a distorted version of the truth! And if i believed half of it i would say, why bother voting for a POTUS at all! Everyone with half a brain knows we are CORPORATE/BANK AMERICA, with congress as THEIR puppets!!

    Congress does NOT work for the people of the US, they work FOR the banks and corporations. If they worked for the people those numbers would be a great deal less! Not to mention many ppl that just applied for unemployment are seasonal/habitual applicants!

      As anybody in the trades can tell you....when an actor, electrician, cameraman, bricklayer, plumber etc.... are between jobs, they file for and get unemployment insurance. Its been this way for years...These folks aren't slackers and couldn't live off unemployment for long. When a movie wraps or a construction job is done, these guys and gals are out of work for maybe a month or so. That's the way some industries work!
