Re: Boo Starbucks

Agree Kerry, I don't even read those emails. There are not many that are accurate. Most of them are coming out of people with tho much time on their hands and some sort of ax to grind.

I get over 300 emails a day and don't have time to read the ones I should read let alone the ones like the these.

Re: Cats in the neighborhood.

Not sure exactly what sorts of problems you are having with these cats (or stray dogs) but some of the minor ones can be solved with a large dose of cayenne pepper. If you have either a dog or cat that is using your flowerbed or your front yard for a potty, you can discourage it by picking up the me...

Never forget, if you should die alone in you house with your pet, a dog will protect you, a cat will eat you.

Re: Limbaugh fractures Marathon County GOP

You got it mystic. And I'll tell you something else that is funny about the advertising he sells. I was a minor influence in the local radio station back when Rush first hit the airwaves. We were one of the original rush stations. He was on for a week or so and people were complaining and yelling fo...

Re: Obama-Bush Dem-Rep

Oh sure ski, we all know there has been plenty of bumbling going on, and of course with the benefit of hindsight it is much easier to see it now. But my contention is that way to many people want to see the bumbling only as in regards to the “other guy”. And of course the other guy right now is Bush...

That is such a typical liberal response. You lost 50% of your retirement because you made bad investment decisions but you blame it on Bush. The market collapse was the results of the failed policies of the past administrations both Democrats and Republicans. It was distended from the beginning of t...

Re: Limbaugh fractures Marathon County GOP

Limbaugh is Limbaugh and has been doing what Limbaugh does every since day one. Now all of a sudden he has become the lighting rod for the liberals to attack because Bush is gone and Limbaugh is the highest profile Republican out there. Anyone that pays too much attention to Rush is a fool, rather y...

Re: Should Cheney Clam Up ?

Kerry, I think it was you in another thread that hit on the idea of the government controlling fast food joints because people do damage to them selves by eating poorly. That too is coming. Of course we already have the New York law that outlawed trans-fats. But now we got the Soda Pop tax coming. O...

Re: Obama-Bush Dem-Rep

I keep hearing this about how Bush lied to get us involved in the invasion of Iraq but I have yet to see any reasonable example of exactly what that lie(s) was. If you are talking about his saying that Saddam Hussein had WMD and then we failed to find any, I’m not buying it, not at all. Bush went ba...

Not all that many terrorist use good old fashion guns. Why would they when they can use bombs or fly planes into high rises. And of course those things are already outlawed.

Obama's chances at re-election will depend entirely on how our economy looks by the next election. If things are getting better, he'll win by a landslide. If either we, or the government are struggling, he's toast... I agree with you for the most part but Obama has one very strong and unique advant...

I'm sure the democrats would love to see Cheney's face and hear his voice into the next election cycle next year And well into several election cycles after that.
