    creature saidSounds to me like CuriousJockAZ is in panic mode. He's exhibiting a defense mechanism to cope with Mitt's impending failure to capture the presidency.




    LOL
    I'm not sure what CJ is exhibiting - but he sure is posting a lot of shrieking and nasty taunting.
    He's obviously got a lot of anger and turmoil going on in his head.
    CJ sounds like a woman on the edge of a nervous breakdown.

    That's because she's trying to fit back into the dress she wore in '81, when Reagan was elected, but all the seams ripped when she tried to zip it up.icon_sad.gif

    LOL...Yes, THAT's it! Actually, did anyone see Romney's speech in Pensacola Florida this morning? He's drawing increasingly larger crowds everywhere he goes, and the momentum is building and Romney is peaking at exactly the right time. Not a single sign I can see to cause panic among any Republicans --- in fact, quite the opposite --- but I think you really already know that to be true in your heart don't ya creature? That sinking feeling is starting to creep in isn't it? Go ahead, you can admit it. You hear the clock ticking don't ya? icon_wink.gif
    Just because Romney is attracting larger crowds to hear him speak does not automatically translate into more votes for him. People in the crowd can walk away after his campaign speech and either be supportive of him or distrustful of him. It goes either way.

    Now now Rick...We all know that YOU have managed to turn "taunt" into an art-form around here for years. Let's take a little stroll down memory lane, shall we. Here, take my hand, in case you start feeling a little faint or your knees buckle...
    RickRick91 saidThe Repubs are coming to grips with the fact that they picked a real lemon when they picked Romney - and now they're stuck with a loser.

    It's always humorous reading your posts.
    You're so predictably and epically misinformed and deluded.

    RickRick91 said
    You poor DELUSIONAL and CLUELESS RJ Repubs are shockingly out of touch with reality!

    I'm sad for you!


    The insipid (I just LOVE that word) tick-tocking is merely a not so subtle way of reminding you and others how long you have until that smug smile turns south. The clock is ticking --- now try to be a good sport.icon_wink.gif

    LOL
    You already proved that you're the absolute opposite of a "good sport".
    Good sports don't engage in the kind of nasty taunting and childish braggadocio that we've seen from you.
    Your behavior reveals the immense amount of anger and bitterness that's inside you.

    FYI - you've made quite a spectacle of yourself.
    I don't think you realize how ridiculous and out-of-control you look.

    It's incredibly foolish to be so completely sure that Romney will win - despite the fact that Romney has never had the lead in enough states to win.

    Ohhhhh Ricky, your hypocrisy truly knows no bounds. When you're name-calling, and making fun and taunting others I guess it's all friendly debate banter, but when you're on the receiving end -- which is really nothing more than you being reminded of your own words (something you also love doing to others) --- it's "childish braggadocio". You're funny. icon_lol.gif

    Pssssst, mch, you might want to brace yourself for things not quite working out as you had planned. Load up on aspirin, and probably a good bottle of vodka, because your seas are going to get a little choppy on Nov 6th icon_wink.gif
    You mean Lake Pontchartrain might spill over the levee into New Orleans and neighboring Metarieicon_question.gif




    Thank Gawd (and the elevation maps) that I live on high(er) ground, on the "slivva along the rivva" in the city of New Orleans. The bywater money pit is also 4 feet off the high(er) ground, never flooded (yet).

    It was built off the ground in 1882 for a reason.

    Says the guy who badgered admin to ban JockTheVote because he was reminding you of your own words.

    You're one of only a couple of the slimy RJ Republicans I don't block --most of you all have raised stupidity to an art form (and half of you are socks icon_rolleyes.gif ). But that was a dickish move that makes you look like a POS, imo.

    Weak, Todd, weak....pathetically thin-skinned, and even duplicitous: you're quite happy to fling the shit, but when someone uses your own words to underline you're own hypocrisy, you go get them banned.




    WOW - CJ yaps about how others need to be "good sports" - and then he turns around and goes whining to Admin to try to get Jock The Vote banned.

    That's unbelievably hypocritical.
    And WEAK.
    CJ can dish it out but he can't take it.

    Whoa, Yourname2000....A) I have no interest in badgering the admins about ANYTHING. I think that's just lame. B) I had no idea JockTheVote was banned, do we know he just didn't go "invisible"?...and C) I have no idea why he would be banned, even if he was. I have said here many times that I don't agree with banning or censoring people. So, if he was banned, I had absolutely NOTHING to do with it. Lordy, if I went to the admins every time someone here disagreed with me or insulted me, I'd be banned by the admins for pestering them so much LOL. I've actually been harrassed and threatened by JockTheVote via email on numerous occasions, so I had every reason to go to the admins about him, but I didn't. I think it's just lame whining to admins about something on a silly message board.

    This might not be the place to ask this, but what the hell. I've read Romney's Medicare plan and there are some things I don't understand so I'm hoping his supporters can explain it to me. I'd like to say that I'm only speaking of Americans who will not have any kind of pension-like insurance after retirement. Also, I'd like to establish something that is as close to a 'fact' as anything can be:

    Insurance never,ever goes down in price. I worked in insurance and premiums may reduce a minimal percentage in the short term, but basically companies raise their rates semi annually regardless of claims and costs. I've worked for companies that have raised their rates after a glut of claims only to show a $10 billion PROFIT ( the money left over AFTER all claims and costs are paid ) the following quarter. So if you don't agree with my original statement concerning insurance pricing and you aren't involved directly with the insurance industry, please refrain from tossing in an invalid opinion.

    Everything in bold is taken from MittRomney.com

    Here's the basic of the plan: Medicare is reformed as a premium support system, meaning that existing spending is repackaged as a fixed-amount benefit to each senior that he or she can use to purchase an insurance plan. Nothing changes for current seniors or those nearing retirement. If the idea is such a great one, why not sell it to people who are currently nearing retirement?

    All insurance plans must offer coverage at least comparable to what Medicare provides today Is that going to be an actual law or does it mean in the future medicare will only cover plans that are comparable to current medicare coverage? If indeed it will be a new law, how is that limited government and not more regulation of free enterprise?

    Competition among plans to provide high quality service while charging low premiums will hold costs down while also improving the quality of coverage enjoyed by seniors I know from working in insurance that competition accounts for less than 10% of rate determination.

    So if I understand this plan correctly, the government is going to give us a stipend every month to buy our own insurance at a time in our lives when we will no longer be receiving pay checks (retirement) and medical insurance premiums will be at their highest due to advanced age. I have a 57 y/o female client; no health issues, no cancer in her family tree, exercises daily and has a very healthy weight without blood pressure or cholesterol issues. She pays $1700/month for medical insurance and it's sure to increase as she ages. Under Romney's plan, will this stipend cover such exorbitant premiums? If not, and I ask this with all seriousness, why would anybody not independently wealthy agree to such a plan especially when we've paid into the system our whole professional lives?

    Don't blame him: blame admin. They won't ban people like Todd who spew vile, racist language. They won't ban people who use the n-word in open on the site.

    But they'll ban someone who points out the hypocrisy of these right-wing clowns.

    The conservanuts are getting away with what they've been allowed to get away with, which is spread bigotry, lies, and disinformation: not their fault. It's RealJock's fault for tolerating it.

    October 30, 2012 gives GOP presidential challenger Mitt Romney 49% of the nation’s voters’ support to Obama’s 47%. One percent is currently favoring another candidate while 1% is undecided as to who they will support on Election Day.

    New polls also show that Romney now leads Obama in Ohio, 50% to 48%. Also, 51% of voters have a favorable opinion of Romney while 45% have a favorable opinion of Obama. In terms of election excitement, 67% of voters are excited about the choice between the two candidates – Romney and Obama – while 29% are not; only 38% of independents – those not affiliated with the two major parties – say they are excited about the election.

    Depends on who you ask.icon_idea.gif Still, either could win. Not worried here.icon_cool.gif

    More Republican lies and disinformation.

    There are not "new polls" showing Romney leading in Ohio -- a blatant lie that shows nothing MikemikeMike is dishonest and can't be trust. It is ONE poll done by a joke pollster that everybody knows leans right. In fact, the majority of polls in Ohio show Obama with a safe lead. You can see this here: http://elections.huffingtonpost.com/pollster/2012-ohio-president-romney-vs-obama

    Most polls measuring favorability show Obama's favorability in the 51-52% range. MikemikeMike's assertion Obama's favorability is only 45% is a clear lie. You can see this here: http://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/other/obama_favorableunfavorable-643.html

    It is also not true that "independents" are not affiliated with either party, most are "independent" like Bill O'Reilly and Bill Maher (and Southbeach) are "independent' -- they're in actuality, they lean strongly one way or the other. Party ID is more a snapshot of voter enthusiasm: when Democrats or Republicans are less enthusiastic, they are more likely to identify as independents. This is why right-wing skewed poll complaints are ridiculous, just because a poll has a sample of D+6 doesn't mean anything: the Republicans may just be hiding in the poll's "independent" sample.

    So sad that Republicans are getting so desperate they are telling obvious lies. Republicans like Romney do not know how to tell the truth. As evidence by MikemikeMike's pathological lying, whenever a Republican says something you have to be sure to check it out for yourself, because it is probably a lie.

    Here's the thing: it's easier to teach a liberal to stop spending money than it is to teach an ultra religious conservative to stop infringing on the rights of a minority, namely us.

    There are 3 Supreme Court Justices over 76 which means they will most likely be retiring from service in one form or another. Who do you want nominating their replacements as gay marriage will most likely come before the Court in the next 4 years? As the pro lifers try every year to overturn Roe v. Wade and fail, so will we fail in an attempt to establish our rights if the Court votes down our marriage validity.

    The country can become a more business friendly environment. Write to your Senators, Obama needs their support for his agenda, and let them know that you want them to enact more fiscally responsible laws. Or vote independent.
