    Hey Liberals,,,

    What do you do when your Home or Neighborhood is being attacked?

    Do you call the Police and
    HOPE that a CHANGE may take place soon?

    Do you have anything that will stop the Attack?

    I mean if the Police are 15 minutes away,,,
    Should you indeed reach 9-11 on the 1st attempt?

    what does a Rapid Busy signal mean?
    what does a Normal Busy signal mean?

    I am just saying,,,,
    just in case you are dialing 9-11 to report an attack on your home or neighborhood!

    Do you depend on the Government to help you RIGHT-AWAY,
    (they are 5 to 15 Minutes Away)
    or After your Home has been raided,,,

    The Government will then take the Dead Count from the Attack.

    Just an Ad for
    Better LOCKS on you DOORs and
    Better Protection for those behind the Doors
    in case the Government isn't there for your Protection!!

    Nothing about the 2nd Amendment!

      DEcember 2012 is

      probably talking about the
      UN's and the Liberal Hillary's attempts in taking away Self Defence Opportunities from the Folks in the USA.

      DEcember 2012 is a Liberal/Marxist/Socialist....

      Any room for those here in the USA?

      I have heard that the Blacks are turning on OUR 1st Gay President, and OUR 1st Pro-Abortion President!

      Oh, Oh, Oh,,,

      Obummer is a Joke,,,, and all the other Nations are laughing at him!

      The UN is not Laughing,,, they are worried!

    apparently repos can't comment on the articals they just make stupid hateful remarks. pretty scary to think these assholes could run this country. Vote all repos out and move forward. It is important world leaders work togeather. The crisis in europe could effect our economy too. But repos will blame the president for that too along with gas prices global warming and any other stupid thing they think of. Amazing it is like haveing to deal with primates when talking to them

    I am sick of Obama, the community organizer, that said in his book he was raised socialist and Marxist. Grew up in other countries all his life hating America then comes here to capitalize on our tax dollars for education under a foreign visa claiming to be born in Kenya, and not having worked a day in his life, is punishing the "decadently rich" America with the wrath of someone who was only primarily raised and lived in another underdeveloped country. What Osama Bin Laden did with a sword is nothing compared to what Obama did with a pen to this country.

    STFU Obama.

      Looks like Bush was the one who couldn't 'run the economy' Sponge-Bob. Or did you forget??? Obama was just elected to try to put the 'LOST ECONOMY' back on track!!

    A guide to how Bush run a good economy into a depression with his tax cuts for the rich, an unfunded wars against the wrong country, and sheer stupidity. Or, you can believe as I do that Bush deliberately engineered the collapse of the American economy in an attempt to bury the middle class into submission.

      poor old Jean...the tired old libertard...bringing President George Bush back for another kick....I guess you just don't have anything else do you? President Bush is up in the polls, this was reported last week. The American people know obama is a fraud and incompetent...sorry about that Jean...NOT!

      At least Pres.Bush did not identify himself with likes of the OWS crowd, who destroy, stab policemen, start trouble wherever they are found and blame everyone and everything on everyone else, yet are to lazy to go and find a job, as long as moveon.org and Media Matters foot the bill.

    Very poor reporting on the G8 summit (if you can call it that). What little we got is fluff. For the first time in my life I see the president of our country with no power here...real world leaders have his number and they know he is a lame duck...just smile and nod of the head and go about their business. A sad joke on America.

      The problem is that is the plan – and it has been the plan for quite some time. Our governmnet has bought into the new world order where our military people report to non-US commanders, our banking system is tied to the mess in other countries, the Fed Res provides funds to other countries without congress approvals, our energy situation is getting worse because we do not want to open new drilling in this country while at the same time US dollars go to Brazil and other such countries so they can open new drilling. We are at a critical point in this country where our military leaders feel the need to get approvals from the UN before we can take action while at the same time we refuse to close our borders to stop illegals from entering.
      Both parties are giving our country away...

      May 21, 2012 at 2:56 pm |
      • jerry

        yes...the obama's, clintons, and others...this is their plan.... God help us.

      BTW Unemployment dropped again last month in 32 states... which means 29 months of job growth 2 1/2 years of monthly job growth.
      Plus you have that all wrong about the G-8. They prefer President Obama's plan over right-wing Merkel's according to the New York Times.



      Poor ole Jerry, his only refuge is to post one lame lie after another.

      "Bush was a failure as a president. That's not politics, that's fact. The historians and economists already recognize it. Fifty years from now, Bush will be remembered as one of the worst supreme executives we've ever had to put up with. The Republican Party, of course, will continue to defend him."

        still nearly 500,000 jobs missing since barry the fraud took over. BTW eh?

      • jean2009

        According to several sources Romney is praying for a decline...because jobs lost in bush depression have been recovered.



        "After more than 24 months of uninterrupted job growth, the Obama Administration has created 4 million net new jobs and completely replaced all the jobs lost by the George W. Bush recession".

        Absolutely more needs to be done for job creation....but at least we are aimed in the right direction. It would had been great had the right-wing thorns in the side of the working public had not been dragging their feet and putting up road blocks the whole time

        That's right Jean,...when all else fails, they do start lying through their teeth!! They are expert liars too!! They can sit there and look you square in the face, and spit out the biggest, bald-faced lie, like nothing!! They have no shame or guilty feelings about it!! They just throw this BS out here and sit back and hope some of it will stick. Many times it does to other dummies who're just looking for a "politically correct" excuse to go against President Obama!! It's pathetic!!

        Name Liz Carter, do you mean Pres.Obama and his reelection buddies, who lie everyday by omission. Have to go back 50 years into the opposition to find something, anything, because they can't run on their achievements, and when confronted about their OLD problems tell everyone that's not relative. How about his association with Frank Marshall Davis his mentor at a young age, or Ayers or Rezko.
        Jean 2009 calls Americans terrorist but is afraid to call Ayers one or even Al Qaeda.

    Romney does not need to pray for high unemployment as the voters watch the courts take everything obama has done apart....even though the underemployment numbers are higher now than in history...even though graduates can't find decent employment....even though the middle east is falling apart with obamas support of Iran... even though frances president holland walks out of the G8 summit before obama's speech and the Russians send in #2...another slight to obama. obummer is heading to the curb...I should say strutting to the curb..hahaha

      Jerry, are you trying to blame Obama for graduates not being able to find jobs?? LOL!! You may need to talk to your GOP about that!! They are the ones who are sitting back impeding jobs for Americans! They didn't even pass the American Jobs Act that Obama proposed! They don't want people to get jobs under the Obama Era, because that would heighten the possibility of his re-election!! LOL!! Everybody sees this trick who's watching!! In reference to your remarks about the G8 Summit and Obama being slighted, I don't believe that's what it was meant to be! Even if it was, at least he didn't get a pair of shoes thrown at him!! LOL!! That's just some more of your propaganda that you hope will stick!!

      • NObama 2012

        it was a slight...one of many. And THIS IS OBAMAS MESS....his policy. obutthead ran as a uniter and refuses to negotiate with the OTHER party...even you should know this. This country is not ran by a king or dictator. O'moron ran everything through in his first two years (nonwithstanding a budget) when he had full control of both houses...for the last year and a half he has refused to work with the GOP controlled house...so there you have it...a dictator.

        We have almost 500,000 people more without jobs than when obama took office...and that does not count the horribly high numbers (millions) of Americans who are underemployed...and of course those who have not even been able to get into the job market ie...those kids home with parents young and older. So put down the coolaid and learn to think for yourself...please.
