Surprising and not surprising. Disappointing and frightening.

Obama is a black man

OK children let's take this one at a time so you all don't have heart failure....

1. He's a socilaist...well sorry to say it but his policies and policy goals are to increase the size and involvement of government...sorry but socialist

2. He's a Muslim...first of all the poll states this in a manner suggesting that being a Muslim is a harsh negative. Nonetheless, he has no church, has a Muslim name, lived in Indonesia...I suspect this number carries over to all demographics +/- 10%. No big deal here.

3. Not born in the US...frankly I don't care and will take his word for it...but why doesn't he simply show a hardcopy of his brith certificate. The issue would then be done. Again, I suspect this number carries over to all demographics +/- 5%.

4. Doing things Hitler did...you're a moron to think that there aren't a few similar tactics all leaders share. Nonetheless what about similarities that include state controlled banks, car companies, health care, etc.

5. May be the Antichrist...the question isn't objective..."may be"...sounds like that keeps open endless possibilities.

Coiler

I think you missed the point on the math. 231% out of a 100%?

Obama is a black man

Coiler...good point. That's typical liberal math...garbage in garbage out.

Tommy008

nice rationalizations OBIAM of a truly frightrning and appalling poll........no, anyone who does basic critical thinking does not believe he is a Muslim OR COULD BE THE aNTICHRIST AND NO ,a poll of Democrats asked the same questions would not resemble this poll in the slightest.....

Andrew

Coiler, the options aren't mutually exclusive. They're not supposed to add up to 100.

Conservatives must not love America any more. If you truly believed the antichrist was in the White House, wouldn't you feel an obligation do something about it? Start a letter writing campaign with calls for impeachment? Conservatives think Hitler Part II is commander-in-chief and they just sit there on their fat asses while "New Hitler" takes over America. I think the last patriotic conservative disappeared with Ronald Reagan's last good brain cell. Lazy assholes will bitch and whine to pollsters, listen to their radios or buy Sarah Palin's book, but they'll never do anything about the fact that the "antichrist" is sitting in the oval office. We have a method for getting rid of antichrist presidents, it's called impeachment. Why are your elected representatives not bringing this issue to the floor?

Obama is a black man

T008 since you're so smart, please explain to me your 'critical thinking' approach as to why he is not a muslim? (FYI...I honestly think he's an atheist that doesn't care about religion or care about those who do...)


...and BTW who cares anyway if he is a Muslim? ...are you suggesting a Muslim could not be president?


Why are you so frightened? You're the one with the paranoia about Dori Monson. You're daily fear of his success is truly disturbing.

Andrew

If Obama is a Muslim, then he's the laziest Muslim of all time, and that's just as good as not being Muslim at all.

Duffman

Could this be a Republican Health Care Plan??? [Hat-tip to Dave Ross Show]
...and now they're suing? Oh well, they can claim dimentia as a pre-existing condition. Hahaha...

Tommy008

'AND btw WHO CARES if he's a MusliM Are you saying a Muslim couldn't be President?" -OBIAM haha nice try OBIAM you know damn well Repugs are trying to portray Obama as a liar...of course a Muslim can be President....although most Repugs would disagree privately..... the issue is that Repugs believe Obama is a liar and deceiver about his true faith and that he's a 'stealth" Muslim who wants to impose pro-Muslim and pro-Shariah policies........ what is the critical thinking that led me to knowing Obama is not a Muslim? happy to help....first of all , no history of significant attendance at a Mosque after he was in America, and had the power to choose where he attended..... his statements that he is not a Muslim, combined with my personal analysis and estimation of his overall character which, although imperfect, is high enough for the impartial observer to believe him on such a matter....eh im tired of helping you think...enough....

chuck says joanie is a liar. (because she lies)

They neglected to ask if we thought that Obama was a rat bastard cummunist.
Get giggy with that.

Erictheeditor

Remember somebody named Rev. Wright?
He was the pastor at the CHRISTIAN church Obama and his family attended.

ExPatBrit

3. Not born in the US...frankly I don't care and will take his word for it...but why doesn't he simply show a hardcopy of his brith certificate. The issue would then be done.

Sure it would!

Mark C.

THE “ANTICHRIST” IS A MYTH BOUGHT BY PEOPLE WHO BELIEVE IN TALKING SNAKES!!! HOW THE FUCK DOES IT GET INTO SERIOUS POLITICAL DISCUSSIONS????

Patriot Pride

Obama is a dedicated Communist (since high school in Malaysia) who is working hard for the overthrow of the United States of America and is trying lead the country into a "revolutionary" dictatorship that will be in lock step with the Communist Internationale, which has lain dormant since Ronald Reagsn got done with it. It's been just waiting for somebody like The One to arise to lead it in world domination.
I can promise you, he will not succeed as long as free men can draw a breath in this country.

Duffman

Meanwhile, Sarah Keeps Banking It! $1-Mil per episode, my-my!

Andrew


An open letter to chucks conservatives

Tommy008

WHICH WOULD YOU RATHER BE?- Ignorant backwoods moron with 10 million in the bank, or educated, smart person with 500k in the bank?.....

Duffman

...or, Mr Palin. :)

Tommy008

i see Palin in the same light of an NFL Player in his 2nd year with the team- he's got his big signing bonus and now can expect a few years of a seven figure salsry befor he's flunked out of the league. Within 3 years of cashiering out of the league, he's broke, doing somewhat worse than the average of 80% of his fellow NFL players which is "broke within five years", only because he's such an exceptionally ignorant moron........

Duffman

Hey...it's likely 'Dancing With The Stars' next. Good for her; she has a big family to raise.

Kiel Mortgage

The T008 envy continues...this guy lays in his bed all day waiting for the mailman to arrive with his welfare check. his face has been shaved in 2 weeks. His underwear shows the sign. He rests while lusting for a life like Dori, Palin or Reichert. People that actually make a difference in this world and get paid handsomely for it.

You're a pathetic imndividual Mr. T008.

Mark C.

who cares about Palin? She makes money selling to her core, but her public political numbers keep dropping. She's a marketing wiz, but a political fizzle. Why does the right conflate ratings and book sales with political viability, or acumen? There is a huge gap between those who by Palin's books or turn out to see her and those who can elect people to office. She decided to leave the political arena for the other kind of whoring. She's turned out to be an excellent coochie-coochie gal. You might love to lap-dance her, but would you take her home to mother?

Kiel Mortgage

Hey T008, Dori just announced that he'll be MC'ing a rally at Westlake Center on 4/15. You can go out and meet him mano a mano.

Tommy008

haah you wish Kiel...... i don't need a welfare check liek you will once you lose your miserable motgage company janitor's job.....independently wealthy....no brag, just fact...i've just graduated from my selftaught 60 months training, trading in the Stock Market, using real money... this is my first year as a real pro , becaus eit takes 5 years to learn, starting April 1... now there's no excuses, my student days are over.... i see my first pro year doing about 100 to 200% returns, repesting my best year as a student......which was 180%... Kiel did you know that if you start with 15,000 dollars and make 200% a year, every year, which is tripling your money, yo uwill have $1,215,00 million dollars in five years?

Tommy008

sorry 1.215 million, not what i wrote......... 1.2 million in five years

Tommy008

Kiel once you get 1.2 million and continue 200 percent a year fo ranother 10 years , then you have $70,856,000,000, which is almost 71 billion dollars.....

Tommy008

which will make you the richest man in the world in 2010

chuck says joanie is a liar. (because she lies)

Careful Tommy, Ph(J)oanie is going to start to hate on you for being a greedy pig capitalist.
Don't forget to send 74% of your money to the government because others are not as fortunate as you.

Duffman

Bla'M please make sure you send T008's IP address to the IRS. With the 16,000 additional agents they're hiring it should be a quick piece of work tracking down any taxes that may potentially be due on a capital gains basis. :)

Tommy008

my figures of course don't take into account 30-40 % taken out in taxes, so maybe you would only have 40- 45 billion in 15 years and have to play second fiddle to Carlos Slim.......

Tommy008

Duffman, don't you know that individual investor's brokerage transaction records are automatically forwarded to the IRS by the brokerage every year?

Duffman

Great to hear Tommy...just wanted to make sure that you're paying your proper share for the support of those who don't make the right choices in life.

Duffman

By the way Tommy I congratulate you for learning the in's-and-out's of market trading apparently well enough to sustain yourself. I was never good at stock picking; my wife finally took over picking and choosing which to buy and she did much better than I.
Keep up the good work and made lots of $money my man so you can pay mucho taxex and keep that social security thing going.

Andrew

Democratic lawmakers receive death threats

stay classy republicans

KS

Too bad. Those are the risks these clowns aka US Representatives take with their contemptuous votes like they made. Stay tuned...

What makes you think these threats were all from Republicans ?

Andrew

Calls for violence in response to the democratic process is as un-American as you can get.

Armand

I'm sure you already know this, Duffman, but the Social Security tax is only applied to the first $90K of income. Employers and employees don't have to pay SS tax on anything above this amount. It doesn't look like Tommy008's good fortune is going to bail us out.

Andrew

Republican party in meltdown

chuck says joanie is a liar. (because she lies)

I believe that SS is collected to a little over $100,000.00 now Armand. Democrats are in control again.
(Of course, there is still no $ in trust for SS recipients. The ass-hats spent it all. Ponzi scheme)

Kiel Mortgage

T008 is a fraud. He's no stock trader. Any stock trader understands that they're going to get slaughtered on the new capital gains tax increases.

Coiler

"Too bad. Those are the risks these clowns aka US Representatives take with their contemptuous votes like they made. Stay tuned..."

We will, if anything happens we have your ip.


Obama is a black man

We are facing a doomsday scenario. You have been warned. The tsunami has begun. Nobody is safe.

Ouster all the bastards! Give me my country back god damn it!

woody held

My data shows 100% of Democrats falling for this bogus poll. Note no mention of how they decided who was a 'Republican.' Registered voters? Likely voters? What?

Lot of interesting things can be done with polls. A 2006 Zogby poll found that more Americans could name the three stooges than the three branches of gov't.

"A recent poll found that nearly three-quarters of those asked could name each of the Three Stooges — Larry, Curly and Moe — but only 42 percent were able to name the legislative, executive and judicial branches of government.

That's according to a new Zogby poll in which 77 percent of Americans could name two of the seven dwarfs, while just 24 percent knew two of the nine Supreme Court justices."

BTW, the writer referenced in the OP link, John Avlon, has stated that the birther theories originated not among Republicans, but from camp Hillary in the 2008 primaries.

Tommy008

fool , even if my taxes go up to 50% in the highest bracket, i'll still keep 100,000 of the 200,000 i'll make off of a 100,000 base investment.... for my year's work.............. much better then what mopping the floor of Kiel Mortgage psys....

Tommy008

do you think the hedge fund managers aer goign to stop trading because the tax rates have been raised? moron

Tommy008

at 200% return per year, 150,000 turns into 4.8 million in 5 years even with a 50% annual gains tax rate.. some hedge fund managers make 600% a year ...

Kiel Mortgage

T008-you're a fraud and I'll prove it right now.

1. Give me your best ticker symbol and I will track every Friday at 1pm what a 1000 share position will be worth.

I know you won't because you're a fraud and don't want to be exposed.

saintrudy

Palin wants 10 grand to have a picture taken with her,I would not give 10 grand for a years worth of her sexual favors..

KS






If only we had a real press corps in this country, then Alan Grayson (D-FL) and the other 219 Democrats in the House of Representatives who voted for HR 3952 would’ve been asked this question:
Please explain to me why you voted for a health-care bill that allocates money to fund the rehabilitation of Native American child molesters?
No joke, people: If Grayson and company had their way, the House bill that passed back in Novemberwould’ve mandated that our taxes go toward treating “perpetrators of child sexual abuse who are Indian or members of an Indian household.” (It’s on page 1950, section 713. See for yourself)
That’s one of the main reasons why there were so many drone-like youth out there who get suckered by Team Obama’s and the Democrats’ hope-a-dope mantra
