  • Like I believe in US Americans, and abortion like such as…

    • WordsFailMe

      In my day it was, “And anyway,h says he says, ya know, you know?”

      The winters must be very mild in this country since stupidity just survives year to year. Even bubonic plague dies out during a moderately hard winter.

      • LMAO! Stop it or they’ll blame it on global warming.

        • librtifirst

          Contraception and abortion will solve that too, right along with hunger and disease. πŸ™‚

  • please please no more no more , I want to smash my head against a wall repeatedly until I become unconscious

  • Good grief. I was asking the same questions all danged summer. These people amaze me in their hypocritical stupidity.

    • librtifirst

      Maybe he should have asked: “what if we banned sex for people who can’t afford a child, wouldn’t that cure hunger as well”?

      • LOL- that’d be waaaay too logical for their little brains to wrap around πŸ˜‰

        • librtifirst

          I know, we could add “no sex before marriage” to Obummer Care. If we are going to be full blown socialists, then we might as well get in some conservative jabs in legislation.

          • There ya go! πŸ˜€

          • toongoon

            I betcha it’s there when obamatax is fully implemented.

    • For the last fifty years our schools have transitioned from teaching how to think into teaching WHAT to think. Nearly fifty percent of our population holds beliefs that they cannot defend since they lack the capacity to think and reason. They have been converted to their views by the schools and a complicit media who “knows what is best”. This is evidenced by the video and is a prime example of why the Left’s policies result in devastating unintended consequences.

      I’d like to attribute their behavior to a more sinister motive, but that is a leap too far. Cause and eventual effect is not a concept they can easily grasp.

      • Excellent and so true. Progressivism has done a superb job in gubmint edumicashon. It’s not that their behavior is sinister- it’s those who have programmed them.

      • white531

        Good, James.

      • librtifirst

        The public is not engaging in some sinister plot, but government certainly has, especially when it comes to education.

  • marketcomp

    And these are the women that overwhelmingly support Obama! They give intelligent women a bad name! All Julias! God save us all!

    • MaxineCA

      I hate to disagree, but I wouldn’t describe them as “intelligent women”. They simply represent the female side of brainwashed, stupid, useful idiots. ARGH!

      • SineWaveII

        Respectfully, I think you missed marketcomp’s point. I think he was saying that these incredibly stupid women give the intelligent women of the world a bad name.

  • I have been saying lately I like to poke lefties in the eye. You know, I just realized debating them or asking them questions is like poking yourself in the eye. The stupid, it hurts!

  • Seriously, how does this happen. Is it me? “All for abortion. Yippeeeeee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” I have to tend to my bloody eye sockets now.

    • librtifirst

      My reply: So, have you ever had a living person ripped from your womb with it’s brains sucked out before it exited your body?

      • SineWaveII

        The ironic thing is that many of these gung-ho pro-abortion women wouldn’t have an abortion themselves.

        • And those who have, don’t realizing that they are aborting themselves to extinction. I’d say that was a good thing, but abortion is wrong period.

  • las1

    A brick wall! Gimme quick! Please! Just to bang my head.

  • MaxineCA

    Great find Scoop. I loved the questions and the uh, uh,uh, answers from the Obama useful idiots. They don’t want the govt involved in their bedroom, but want the govt to pay for their bedroom activities.

    Hey you dummies….. NEWSFLASH – Free birth control is available to you right now! Don’t screw around and you won’t get pregnant and you won’t need an abortion. Oh wait, I guess that’s way too over your heads to comprehend.

    Oh my…. idiots live among us in greater numbers than we could ever have imagined. We certainly have our work cut out for us to save our country.

    • NCHokie02

      Don’t forget that there are a lot of clinics that offer FREE condoms as well. Go to a college campus and I’m sure you will have no problem finding someone handing out free condoms.

      And another question would be who can’t afford a condom? And where are they looking that they cannot get them? I bet the store that they buy food or beer from has them. Just a thought.

    • white531

      “Oh my…. idiots live among us in greater numbers than we could ever have imagined. We certainly have our work cut out for us to save our country.”

      Maxine, you just touched on one of the biggest problems facing us as a nation. We have become a nation of political morons, not understanding of what Freedom really means. When you and I speak of being a Free nation, the only word they focus on is, “Free.” If it’s free, they want it.

  • All that Sandra’s Flukes are saaayyiing is “Wees is Obama’s womyns hears us roar, Big Sugar Daddy government give us more, more, more”

    Hey Baby, Gloria Steinem has come a long way to go nowhere.

  • detectivedick

    I will now become a prepper…..I only need a cartons of Lucky’s and cases of Jack. Here is an idea, if the pill still comes in those round dispensers, I want stimulus money to be used for a micro chip to be placed inside each dispenser with:
    Because that is what is happening to you women!

  • Dear me. What kind of ding dongs are we producing anymore?

    • librtifirst

      These are Olympic idiots. They win the gold.

    • librtifirst

      You just proved to the MSM that you are a racist.

    • And the gop hasn’t demanded impeachment hearings because…..

      • anyonebutbarry2012

        because for the most part they are rino’s, who even knows what the gop stands for anymore. nothing i want to have anything to do with. wants a conservative party.

        • while I appreciate your zeal and truthfulness abb- you know it was rhetorical right? lol- just kidding. You said it! πŸ˜€

          • anyonebutbarry2012

            yup I knew, but your right, i just have to keep saying it πŸ™‚

      • SineWaveII

        because they don’t control the senate.

        • That too. Dingy harry is a detriment to our country and needs to be kicked out dang it.

    • Okay, that doesn’t seem too bad. I mean, compared to how “cool” the guy is and all, can’t we live with a few flaws?

      • James1754

        After all his is well liked!

  • Nukeman60

    For those of you who like watching meteor showers, one of the years most consistent is happening this week (the Perseids) and will peak on Saturday night and Sunday night. I put this out now to give people the opportunity to check it out each night, should the clouds happen to move in and block our view this weekend.

    Saturday night (Sunday morning) the cresent moon will rise about 1 am (low in the eastern sky), so the darkest time to view is between 9:30 and 11:30 pm (probably with a rate of about 25/hour). Saturday’s peak is between 1:30 – 3:30 am (Sunday morning) with a cresent moon midway up in the east north eastern sky (~45 -50/hour).

    Sunday night (Monday morning), again the cresent moon won’t rise until about 2:00 am (low in the eastern sky), so the darkest time again is between 10:00 pm and 12:00 midnight (25-35/hour). After the moonrise at 2:00 am, the peak showers will be between 2-4 am (45/hour).

    Be advised, I’m calculating fro CDT (roughly Chicago), so those of you on the East Coast (EDT) and the West Coast (PDT), will have to make slight adjustments, but it’s relatively close.

    The radiant (that area which the meteors appear to come from) is out of the constellation Perseus (North Eastern sky, about half way between the horizon and the constellation Cassiopia (a ‘W’ shaped set of 5 stars in the NE, easily recognizable) during the early hour watch (9:30-11:30). As the night progresses and the moon comes out, Cassiopia moves higher in the sky (and more northward) while Perseus moves more toward the east and ends up somewhat above where the moon is (the moon, of course, drowns out many of the ‘weaker’ meteors) during the later viewing areas (2-4 am).

    Anyone who wants to calculate the rate of meteors in their neighborhood on any particular night, can use this handy ‘fluxtimator’. You need to input 1) the shower – which is Perseids, 2) your location – pick a city nearest you, 3) the conditions – whether it’s downtown, suburbs, countryside, or mountaintop, 4) the date and the year – eg, Sunday night is Aug. 12-13, and, of course, use the year 2012, and lastly 5) whether it’s daylight savings time or not – input yes, for most areas right now.

    For anyone who wants to download a nifty skychart (Cartes du Ciel), that automatically updates the movement of the stars and planets, this is a free site. On the left side of the page, click on ‘download stable version’:

    For those who like this sort of thing, enjoy and as Jack Horkheimer always said, “Keep looking up”.

    • white531

      Thanks, Nuke.

      • Nukeman60

        My pleasure.

        It’s one of my viewing pleasures to watch the wonders of God, late at night, after I get off the ‘puter. It puts me (and all of us, for that matter) in the proper perspective. It shows how insignificant and small we are to the Glory of God.

        I have sites that track all the yearly meteor showers, sites that track the iridium flares and the ISS, and sites that just track the motion of the planets and stars.

        But there’s nothing like stepping out in the backyard and just ‘looking up’. πŸ™‚

    • I always try to catch these Nukefriend. Usually August is not a good time here for clouds from late afternoon and evening storms, but this year being dry- maybe we’ll get lucky. If not, we’ll have to wait ’til December for the other show. Usually less mosquitoes by then too πŸ˜‰

      • Nukeman60

        The sky is so much clearer in the cold. But I like the summertime, camped out in my lounge chair in the middle of my back yard, in the middle of the night, making all the neighbors suspicious, lol.

        • LOL don’t blame ya one bit. Just remember my lounging in the back yard is a winter activity πŸ˜‰

          • Nukeman60

            Oh, yeah. I forgot. Not much snow there, I guess, lol.

            • Nope. If it did, I’d still want to go out in it. But really. Cool nights, clear skies and no gnats, no noseeums or mosquitoes πŸ˜€ Love that time of year! It’s still 80 something here right now, and it’s been a scorcher all day. I need to put this towel back in the freezer, my head melted it.

    • Hah! One year I was awaiting the perseids, and three nights before the peak I got to see an awesome (hey I get to use “awesome” properly!) fireball while driving home from rehearsal. Yes, we do drink at band, but I was totally almost sober.

      Anyhoo, I thought we were in for a magnificent show on the night it supposedly peaked (two nights later), and I had the family go outside and hang out in sleeping bags on lawn chairs and watch, because it was an unusually cloudless night for Michigan.

      Nothing. Sweet eff ay.

      Turned out, the peak was a day earlier than expected, and I got to hear and read about it all week long. We had total clouds that night.

      Family thought I was nuts.

      • Nukeman60

        I did the same thing one year with my family. Built it up something fierce. Turns out, it was a weak year for the Perseids and we got squat. Needless to say, I got the sky maps and my ‘fluxtimator’ after that.

        The most impressive time, though was when I was single in college. Had a dinner date with a gorgeous redhead. She mentioned the year before, when she was in Europe and watched this meteor shower in the summer with some friends. I asked her if it was Aug. 13 and she looked at me as if I was some kind of mind reader. I ‘fessed honesty, though, and told her that I track these things. But she was still impressed. I’ll leave the rest of the date for the imagination, lol. πŸ™‚

        • nibblesyble

          Nuuuke what a post that was! lol

          • Nukeman60


            Youth, go figure.

        • Θ^))

        • toongoon

          Good way to pick up chicks eh?

    • librtifirst

      It might be fun to go to the top of a mountain and watch it. It would be a good excuse to pitch camp and spend the night.

      • Nukeman60

        That would be fun, but all you need to do is get away from city lights and the show is still awesome.

  • librtifirst

    I think that the big fuzzy microphone was too distracting for them, and they couldn’t focus to come up with an intelligent thought.

    • lol, I thought so too! Can’t he find a normal mic?

    • James1754

      I doubt many of them ever had an intelligent thought. At least not one that someone else did not give them.

      • librtifirst

        Now there’s a challenge for liberals: Having an intelligent thought, that is original as well.

    • toongoon

      It distracted me too. Made it seem like these women had no idea what they were talking about.

  • anyonebutbarry2012

    this guy here
    is running against don young, alaska. trying to get him some maybe he has a chance of beating young.

    • FutureOnePercent

      He had me at “we should revert back to the gold standard and move toward a flat tax.” How’s he looking in the race right now?

      • anyonebutbarry2012

        not very good, there is a anchorage tea party picnic saturday, hoping he gets some exposure there, i wrote a couple alaska newspapers, they lean liberal, so sure that is why they have ignored cox so far.i see no articles on him. it looks like he was interviewed by hannity, but it was never highlighted. Recently 10 questions were asked by Sean Hannity to candidate John R. Cox These questions and answers were never posted on the Hannity web site. So we decided to post those questions to allow you, the voter(s) to see where John stands on several issues that face this country. this is under issues on his site the link i provided.
        young has needed to go since 1982. imo this endorsing a dem was so pathetic even for him.

  • p m

    Andy McCarthy gave what has been described as a ‘majestic’ presentation about the Muslim Brotherhood today at the Center for Security Policy in Washington. George Gaffney did the intro. It’s stunning. He’s a real hero, is Andy.

    • Thanks pm! I’ll have to watch this first thing tomorrow! er, I mean, later today, after I go to sleep.

    • anyonebutbarry2012

      ty, myself am concerned about this. mcshame , boehner, even rubio. all worried about being politically correct.

      • sDee

        We should be deeply concerned when politicians in thier positions are covering over this danger. Political correctness is just their convenient excuse a sort of faux-high ground……. they are aligned and/or bought by the islamists. It apparently does not take much to move, fool, or buy a politician not founded on principles.

  • James1754

    These are the informed electorate. Scary isn’t it. They sure know their talking points, but have never thought about them.

  • FutureOnePercent

    Behold the face of the Average American Voter.

    Look upon it, and be afraid.

    • librtifirst

      Oh, I am afraid. That is why I am canning beans and pickles tonight. Getting ready for a societal collapse.

    Sandra Fluke – aspires to be the most used piece of equipment for the obama re-election campaign.

  • NCHokie02

    Hilarious yet painful. At least that one woman said “umm…thats a good question”. The others tried to defend it. Solving hunger?? If more women had access to free birth control it would help solve hunger??? I hope she goes home and comes across this video clip and says, man I’m an idiot.

    Again, who doesn’t have access to birth control? Please left, and WH, who doesn’t have access to or can’t afford condoms???

  • Caleb = Awesome!

  • kclightguy

    Good Lord! If the mouth breathers in this video looked up during a rainstorm they’d all drown for sure!

  • 911Infidel

    Oh totally…I can answer your question with a response that is not only totally dumb, but I’ll give my reply in the form of a question, because I’m just a like, like, like you know…a uhm…….uh… like…dumb Valley girl…

  • EchoMike

    What’s sad is that one of these chicks will cancel out my vote.

    • DebbyX

      Now there’s a depressing thought πŸ™

  • kateorjane

    It’s women like those that make me wonder if it was a mistake to give us the right to vote. Unless he trolled around until he found the really stupod ones

    • Sandra123456

      Yes. These are “sound bite” thinkers.

      Do you want gov’t in your bedroom? Well no.

      Then why do you want the gov’t to provide you with birth control? Gee I never thought about it that way!

      Like toongoon wrote, these people just don’t connect the dots.

      I had hopse for a landslide Romney win in November. After seeing this video I am not so sure he will even win.

    • sDee

      Easy – he just has to grab the same people that team-obama uses as props to stand behind him during those stump speeches.

  • toongoon

    So many dots, so few connections, so go the thoughts of the “enlightened” Obama voter.

    When I was a kid the funnies part of the Sunday paper always had a “connect the dots” feature. I used to look forward to it. Each dot had a number next to it and all you had to do was start at the number one dot and draw a line to number two dot and so forth. When you completed it there would be a picture of a dog or a truck or some other familiar item.
    Usually, I could figure out the hidden picture before connecting all the dots, but I would complete it anyway to be sure.
    However, if you drew the lines to numbers out of order you would get a abstract that makes no sense whatsoever.

    If can’t connect the dots properly you vote for Obama, it’s as simple as that.

    • sDee

      Accurate analogy.

    • Nukeman60

      Nice, toon. An analogy even a liberal could understand. Maybe… Given a little help… And some numbered dots… πŸ™‚

  • Guest1776rcp

    Sandra Fluke was flying in a hot air balloon and realized she was lost. She lowered her altitude and spotted a man in a boat below.

    She shouted to him, “Excuse me, can you help me? I promised a man whom I just met that I would meet him an hour ago for copulation, but I don’t know where I am.”

    The man consulted his portable GPS and replied, “You are a promiscuous slut in a hot Air balloon, approximately 30 feet above a ground elevation of 2346 feet above sea level. You are at 31 degrees, 14.97 minutes north latitude and 100 degrees, 49.09 minutes west longitude.”

    She rolled her eyes and said, “You must be a Republican.”

    “I am,” replied the man. “How did you know?”

    “Well,” answered the balloonist, “everything you told me is technically correct, but I have no idea what to do with your information, and I’m still lost. Frankly, you’ve not been much help to me unless you’ll pay for my contraception.”

    The man smiled and responded, “You must be a Democrat.”

    “I am,” replied the balloonist. “How did you know?”

    “Well,” said the man, “you’re loose, you don’t know where you are or where you’re going. You’ve risen to where you are, due to a large quantity of hot air. You made a promise that you have no idea how to keep, and you expect me to solve your problem. You’re in exactly the same position you were in before we met, but, somehow, now it is my fault!

    • toongoon

      Very good, kudos.

    • DebbyX


  • giomerica

    It’s amazing how tongue tied these liberal Obamatons become when they’re confronted with common sense. This reporter is AWESOME (and doing the job that the MSM refuse to do).

  • Sober_Thinking

    Um, if they’re Obama-supporters, they’re already brain dead.

  • white531

    The very idea of Abortion in the first place, comes from a lack of personal responsibility for one’s actions. We are teaching people that they do not have to be held accountable for making bad decisions and need not suffer the consequences.

  • DebbyX

    Didn’t somebody say once that Lib women are……………shall we say…………not that attractive? If so, this segment proves it. Not all that bright either.

  • keyesforpres

    Good bumper sticker:

    Future of America folks! Funny to see liberal stump when they are asked questions that require them to think. LOL!
