Aye. I have been diligently putting away a little scratch each week for presents and can’t wait to lift my daughter up to put the angel on the tree…. Seriously, FFRF doesn’t represent atheists, it represents government. Don’t let Billy’s misleading headlines and Al Sharpton’esq propaganda convince you that atheists, in general, are out to get ya.

Gee, if the study just said everyone was going to be straight it would do better than 70%

I don’t think it matters anymore, Monk.

Well it would be easier for him to cozy up with Nancy on the couch for some climate change propaganda…. That image should be sufficient.
Who do you want to see as SOTH? I'd like to see Mark Levin but THAT is never going to happen.
my "never gonna happen" pick is Judge Napolitano!
I like him a lot and would be fine with that as long as he leaves, if we get the White House, and he goes on to head the DoJ. That would be where he is needed most IMO.
DoJ would be his best fit.
although i do like him for speaker if only for the "3rd in line for POTUS" angle ;)
East and Monk,
I absolutely loved Judge Napolitano's speech about liberty, the law and the Constitution.
I think it's the one that got him kicked off FOX..who knew speaking the truth would have that outcome. Guess some people can't handle the truth.
I remember that Celtic.
I don’t think it matters anymore, Monk.
Now you are talking Monk never thought of it but excellent choice !

Meh, the welfare checks will still be cut and Obama will continue to bomb crap like Doctors without Borders.

And Kapow… Paul Ryan gets RINO tattooed right across his forehead.
Nobody wants that job. Whoever gets it, regardless of ideology, is gonna get hammered on a regular basis.
Today needs to be Boehner's last day in office. And McConnell's. Period.
Ghomert for speaker!!
The anti conservative kiss of death....equivalent to the Madden cover in the NFL ....LOL
"Boehner reiterated Thursday that he will continue to serve in the role until a new person is selected."
Selected and not elected , huh? So the Proglodyte oompa loompa gets to hand select his replacement or he won't hold a vote for the new speaker?
Maybe the Freedom Caucus should just move to unseat Boehner anyway, regardless of when that jerk "says" he's leaving.
My sincerest congratulations to the Freedom Caucus for refusing to give McCarthy their votes and causing him to drop out.
Job well done !!!
WHY does the Speaker who is being thrown out get to choose his successor?!!!
It would seem that Boehner would the the LAST person on earth to be involved in this decision.
so he can read it in the mirror.
Love that picture of Boehner walking away from the US House of Reps. seal. To bad it isn't a Perp. walk..
He must have sat on grandpas lap and received a stern talking to
Just as the democrats lurched (not a reference to John Kerry) to the left over the last decade and muscled out the old guard establishment democrats that one could perceive as "moderate". So to now the Republican party is having it's own "revolution" and being forced to the right.
Notice the Republicans are offering a younger more dynamic and diverse group than the democrats? The democrats are now where the republicans were...old, establishment, stale, out of ideas...look at that group..Biden, Clinton, Sanders and whispers of Fauxcahontas Warren running alongside Bide.
This shift that's taking place in the republican party is good for the party. Now one might argue that going too far to the right is not wise because most voters wants centrists. To them I say...Obama posed as a centrist to get those votes and he's turned out to be the most divisive, partisan, leftist president this country has seen in generations.
Ryan? May as well ask Jebbie to become Speaker....
@justangry ---- Exactly. It has truly gotten to the point that I would be in favor of anyone who John Boehner DOESN'T want.
Go Paul Ryan!
"It has to be Ryan" - John Boehner
If Boehner is a problematic Speaker of the House.....why in the world would anyone listen to his recommendation for a replacement. You would just get more of the same. Ryan may be smart, but if John Boehner recommends you.....that recommendation should be received with extreme caution. There is a reason Boehner resigned and if you accept his recommendation you will be wishing Ryan would resign as well in short order.
One or two RINO's fall, there's always another ready to step up and be crowned.
...that tattoo has been there for a while now.

OK fine, you get the government to disarm first, then we’ll talk, because as of right now, the people proposing this legislation are mass murdering dicks.
 October 8, 2015 at 9:24am
Fine move to England or Australia, pinko!
 October 8, 2015 at 9:11am
It isn’t a serious problem for me. What is a problem is the logic of statists, which is to use violence to curb violence. You do know all legislation is backed by violence, no?
So what is that going to do to stop these shooting sprees in gun free zones? As for the straw purchases being a federal crime; does that mean dads who buy their kids a gun to take them hunting are going to be felons? “Freeze dirtbag, you bought a single shot .410 for your licensed son. You’re going to jail.” Yeah, I’d hang a jury in a heartbeat over that BS.
Remember this goodie? Once you fire your two blasts into the air, Uncle Joe, then what? Whack the intruder over the head with the shotgun before he murders you with his handgun with a 8-15 round clip? Uh huh.
It's only a straw purchase if you buy a firearm for a prohibited person. Gifts of most firearms in most states are fine.

Meh, those who will be collecting interest on 19 trillion have to be happy when they raise the rates. Who the F they are, who knows? I’ve heard everything from “the Jews” to lizard people.
That always seems to be their line, isn't it? Socialism failed in the past because they just weren't as passionate about it or educated in the right lingo and intentions as the modern Socialist and Totalitarians. They will know how to make it right this time and they promise, they pinky swear, not to murder millions. (Despite Bobo's good buddy Bill Ayers recommending the slaughter of 25 million Americans who wouldn't go along with their new Weatherman Socialist Revolution).
"If the representatives of the people betray their constituents, there is then no recourse left but in the exertion of that original right of self-defense which is paramount to all positive forms of government, and which against the usurpations of the national rulers may be exerted with infinitely better prospect of success than against those of the rulers of an individual State. In a single State, if the persons entrusted with supreme power become usurpers, the different parcels, subdivisions, or districts of which it consists, having no distinct government in each, can take no regular measures for defense. The citizens must rush tumultuously to arms, without concert, without system, without resource; except in their courage and despair."
-- Alexander Hamilton, Federalist No. 28
It couldn't, and it won't, because we live in a global world now. No country could ever get away with that kind of crap.
It's the paranoid fear of such an event that is turning America into the hellhole that it is.
Repeal the 2nd amendment.

If one thing is certain, it doesn’t matter who the perceived occupying country is, those fundamentalists aren’t going to accept anyone on “their land”. Let the Russians beat that dead horse. We’re broke from beating it. They went bankrupt doing the same not too long ago. I don’t understand why people like you think we need to control the ME in the first place. Our leaders can’t even run this country worth a crap.
