Don't try and win with Tater or the other haters-you are not the jackass wisperer. And if you find you can not fight the overwhelming urge to smack him remember to yell "mosquito" when you do :)

Poor, poor Rollo. He puts so much effort into typing and has yet to produce a single, coherent thought. To think that comes from a person who has chosen as his nom de plume the name of an unseen fictional purse snatcher.

Here are the headlines they don't want you to see..............yet the entire country should be aware. Our political system is a FRAUD. Duh, sure, we all know that...........but this election cycle is proving it 100%. Prior to the convention, a candidate needed to win 5 primary states to be nominated. At the RNC, Dr. Ron Paul was nominated by 6 states..........meh, let's change the rules so it's instead 8 states. http://reason.com/blog/2012/08/28/you-used-to-need-five-states-to-get-nomi Well surely Democracy won out, right? They obviously voted on the rule change. At least take 1 minute to watch part of this video. The teleprompter told Crybaby Boehner the outcome........regardless of the floor vote. Start around 3:16 to see the teleprompter screen report the results. www.youtube.com/watch?v=pKaXqoC4DjE Free country my arse! www.youtube.com/watch?v=tTOQhPd2Xh4
