farmkid don't take the low road in close pursuit of hartmann or igorvitch. The live in a profoundly oblivious place.

Here is hartmann telling me that I am wringing my hands foolishly because Obama has done wonderful things for the country and will continue to do so. (gag) All the while he's wringing his hands foolishly about oil spills that haven't even happened yet, most likely never will. You gotta love the duplicity.

"Do you folks actually manage to write this stuff..." "Because it’s pretty much impossible to take seriously." -SEL

Really SEL? You mean Obama really is not a Kenyon born, Marxist-Atheist-Socialist intent on destroying the very country he plans to take over? You mean Igorvitch does not actually live in an ivory tower? You mean damage to our environment from oil spills is fictitious? You mean our government is NOT preparing for martial law? You mean Obama is not an anti-colonialist, community organizer with a radical political agenda to redistribute wealth? I thought Bush already did that with his tax cuts.

You’re right SEL & ivorvitch, they have no idea what’s real and what’s false - they are guided by their ignorance, which is proven by their posts. You can’t reason with individuals who lack ability to think rationally.

Thanks for the advice scout. Might I suggest you lay off the X-files?

LOL, who are you to criticize?

I was one of Michelle'a mentors, SEL, so lay off the stupid comments.

I'm forwarding your thread to Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny so prepare for disappointment.

SELyon, it's impossible to read at all, much less take seriously, if your head is in the sand.

I should forward this thread to the RNC. I think they would seriously consider Al, NBHH, Liberal, and Rona as potential successors to Michelle Bachmann. They have all mastered her trademark style of crazy statements with no basis in facts. Without people willing to stand up and represent Minnesota with these interesting points we run the risk of not being confused with South Dakota, which proudly stands as the worst-educated state in the nation.

Maybe one of you can move to the cities and run for Michelle’s seat and another one of you can run for Colin’s seat? That way we’ll be sure to have the mentally impaired well represented in the east and the west of the state.

Do you folks actually manage to write this stuff with a straight face? Because it’s pretty much impossible to take seriously.

Igor, thanks for reminding me about the embassy attach. I forgot to mention that failure of the administration. Fast and Furious was the botched ATF gun running program that turned guns over to Mexican drug cartels. Next time you might want to ask a big person to explain the news to you before you play with the key board.

Farmkid, listening would be more appropriate. I suggest you read a little about the policies regarding phone records.

Hey liberal, rangeral, scout. There is absolute proof on this thread that the left's disagee-ers don't read conservative posts. Look at liberal's agree/disagree ratio on this page, it rivals hartmann and farmkid. Rather than do something as difficult as read, they just look at liberal's moniker and punch "agree". They don't even know that the moniker is a sarcastic slap in their face! Well done liberal!

hartmann, you show me a vehicle with a windmill or a solar panel attached than runs efficiently NOW, and is reliable and durable NOW, and I will buy into your's and Obama's insipid "green" energy. In the meantime, we need fossil fuel. Obama's agenda has nothing to do with the Ogalalla aquifer. Again, Obama's agenda is, the government must provide rather than the private sector.

farmkid, the fact that you consider Obama the lesser of 2 evils, is in these dire times, an endorsement. What worries me about you is that you seem to still believe that Obama was the lesser of 2 evils, inspite of his patently destructive agenda.

Igor, hartmann, the difference between you and me is that I don't call you names. I may poke fun at what you post, but don't call you names. If you care to pay attention, my jabs at you are usually attempting to point out the error of your logic. My ire, i.e. name calling, is directed at the people who put this nation into such a sorry mess, that we may never get out of. Obama will probably always the top dog in that regard.

igor - I doubt Obama every took any science, business or environmental courses during or after college. He is also about the hustle.

I would have one the bet. That's a knee slapper. What a stooge igorvitch is! These lefties are too easy to predict and easier still to fool. I know them better than they know themselves for I once was a liberal. I was about 19 years old. But reality slapped me in the face and I haven't voted for a Democrat since that time.

Today's lesson - There aren't many conservatives that become liberals, but MANY conservatives were once liberals. We now have wisdom and sanity on our side. You lefties don't.

"I'm surprised than you could say with a straight face that the man has any redeeming values."

You read that from a post of mine? I doubt it. You really need to stop inferring, as I haven't endorsed him yet. Your reading difficulties are probably the biggest problem you have with other points of view.

liberal. The word to use in comparisons is "than," not "then." If you can show me a legitimate example of my projection that is not a blatant example of farce or deliberate imitation of your absurd arguments, be my guest. Oh, another meaningless cliche: "the gloves are off." As for your reviews of the current president, none of them is based upon a single legitimate example. At least Rangeral shows some capacity for that sort of reasoning. Shallow is a complete understatement for your usual rationale or lack of one, if one can even call what you write any kind of cogent statement.

NoBleeding. Define Marxist-Socialist. For you to speak of personal attacks is so absurd it isn't worthy of comment. Personal attacks are all you do on these pages. You're filled with angry names and cliches such as "ivory tower" but you don't show me the intellectual capacity of an average seventh grader to make a coherent, substantiated argument. And the real joke on here is so-called "liberal" who evidently failed to realize I was doing exactly what No Bleeding does in almost every post: name calling, insulting, using meaningless cliches, etc. I even said so, but evidently farmkid reads far better than most of you using Limbaughnese on here. Goodbye, fair well and may the bird of paradise fly up your nose and avoid the brick wall of your closed minds.

Well said igorvitch. The conservative drama queens are great performers. They can't even pass a simple farm bill without histrionics.

Too funny Scout, the redistribution of wealth began 40 years ago and you're just now figuring it out? Wall Street and the wealthy bought out our politicians a long time ago.

Thankfully, NBHH, Obama is not stupid enough to believe running a pipeline through the Ogallala aquifer, which provides billions of gallons of CLEAN water for millions of farmers and businesses and families in EIGHT different states, is a good idea. NBHH, do us all a favor and look up the meaning "renewable energy". It means we don't have to depend on other countries for our energy.

Meanwhile al & liberal are getting all mushy.

NoBleedingHeartHere, do you think igorvitch even notices the hypocrisy in his statements? I bet not.

As far as relaxing goes, no chance. The gloves are off. These leftists are a danger and a threat to democracy and to MY future. They don't even realize they are only useful to the leftists they vote for up to the point when their votes don't matter. Then their usefulness will be gone. In fact, Obama has more respect (or maybe fear is a better choice of words) for people like me than he does for them; his supporters. He actually despises them, but they're too foolish to notice much less understand.

I'm truly fearful for our nation and my family's future. Not to mention freedoms' future. God help us all...

Relax liberal, that's the way of the left. They immediately start a personal attack when someone with a different viewpoint is describing issues outside this forum (World news,President). Then they get petty, and attempt to trivialize that poster (can't spell). Pretty soon liberal, I will be painted as a "john" to some contrived scarlet lady. That's just the way the left works.

"worst than useless because now Iraq is far more an enemy on the side of religious fanatics?" - igorvitch

worst, mind you. then this...

"Bleeding Heart. No only are your reading skills questionable, but your spelling is clearly sub par, even with the spell checker on here." - igorvitch (again)

Nicely done igorvitch. Project much? MORON!!
