Nothing is going to be said that will be worth hearing or repeating. These shows are really getting pathetic.

Surely, in a country of more than 300 million people there must be some with ideas about our political and economic and social condition that deserve to be heard.

Thanks for thread A.B. Ohio Senator Rob Portman finally came out strongly for 2nd amendment, against UN treaty, against expanding background checks, against national registry, against banning certain guns, clips and ammo. In favor of treating mentally ill (not necessarily blanket banning on them having guns, which is fair - should be case by case. Like allowing mentally ill people to drive, to vote, to life, liberty and pursuit of happiness, etc.)

Bloomberg’s millions have saturated Ohio media with some fake hunter who “loves guns” but says he loves his kids even more, telling us to “call Senator Portman and tell him to vote in favor of responsible gun control”. Then his kid says, “Thanks Dad”. urp!

They thought Portman was a weak link after he came out in favor of Gay marriage. We were wondering also.

That line up looks like Sunday morning newstalkies reruns, what with all the retreads.

I still hope everyone checks in and even listens to some of the shows. Know your enemy and gather intelligence.

And we could still talk about Fishtalk’s cooking!

Still, it is a horrible lineup. But then again, the drivebys are NOT trying to inform us, but rather bend us to their thinking...

I have a feeling it’s not working with the crowd we have here!

Morning Folks,

Looks like a nice Sunny Sunday, temps in the 50s, 30% chance of showers.

Thanks for the thread and ping AB.

I don’t watch any of them anymore. I don’t need their commentary. And it’s always the same people. Look at the list. Lindsey Graham, Chuck Schumer, John McCain. They throw in John Huntsman this week. The same views, the same opinions, the same questions, the same show. I’ve seen it before.

Morning AB, All.

Went to mass yesterday instead of this morn.

Choir singing this morning, without me.

Might be quitting choir, maybe more on this later.

Husband having major COPD episode, has me worried bejeesus.

Anyway, watching the Sunday shows and cooking, as is my wont.

Let us begin with the concept that I will NOT support in any way any Republican what votes for gun control in any form or fashion.

I don’t want to hear that THIS bill is harmless, it won’t hurt the average citizen....yada, yada.

I object to even stupid, worthless laws.

And don’t forget that here in Delaware, the fine, fine “Republican” is out and about and touting gun control.

Remember how they mocked us for revolting against him in the primary?

While Christine O’Donnell is nowhere to be seen endorsing gun control.

Thank Karl Rove peebles! He lined up the Dems and RINOS and Delaware and helped defeat her.

While Mike Castle continues on destroying conservative values.

Did y’all hear about that preacher’s son committed suicide?

How awful.

So let me jump in here and mention how much I despise Portman for his gay marriage stance.

Because HIS SON IS GAY?

This is reason to spit on everyone who elected him, for his son is gay?

The pubs disgust me.....the new norm is for those with gay children to come forth and force homosexual marriage down our throats.

I include Dick Cheney and his lesbian daughter in that.

IT’S NOT ALL ABOUT YOU YON POLITICAL ELITE!

Yup, or we could talk about the NORKs who threaten to blow up San Fransicko, or the Bengazi victim's mother who's speaking out, or the incredible "Bone" doing scary supersonic fly-overs in Korea, private police forces cropping up across the US, the ATF collecting your data, Obama raiding your retirement accounts...etc etc etc.

Freepers, doing the jobs regular American media won't do.

Good morning, everyone!

The only one who might be watchable this morning is Asa Hutchinson. I might be able to catch the rerun tonight if it is reported Chris Wallace lets him get a word in edgewise. Otherwise, I have no desire to listen to Wallace's snarky opinions.

The rest of the lineup is simply sucky. It's worse than watching old Sponge Bob reruns. But at least Sponge Bob is just a sponge and not a sponge who makes his living as a slimy politician, using our tax dollars and making stupid laws which take away our freedom and liberty.

Does anybody watch these lame Sunday shows any more? I mean anybody except the few stalwart FReepers who bravely feel compelled to keep tabs on the enemy?

Per some reports, the NORKs warned Russia and Britain to get their personnel out of NK by April 10. Also, the NK military supposedly has already been given 'attack' orders.

Experts seem split on whether the current sabre rattling from the Little Tyrant like his father used to do, or whether there is real need for concern.

Thanks for the thread, AB! Watching ABC (which is all I can get in before church, unfortunately),

president is going to have dinner with the Republicans again this week. How special. Hmmmm, maybe a few senators can manage another filibuster that evening?

Dan Pfeiffer -Obama will only accept chained CPI if they use a balanced approach - carve out tax loopholes, protect old seasoned citizens

On obam’s gun control push - Pfeiffer is complaining about a possible filibuster. Awwwwwww. Basically says they are disrespecting the Newtown families. allrighty.

Hmmmmm, if they are trying to shame the senators who are proposing a filibuster, these senators SHOULD do it. It must worry them that it may hurt them.

I have posted before that these programs are just Sunday morning filler. These programs have a relatively constant number of viewers, which is just over 3 million for the more popular programs. During elections or major events some of these programs have drawn upwards of 5 million viewers.

Adults tend to be either in church or still in bed. Kids have cartoons on.

ABC shows a clip of Martha Radditz in North Korea looking really serious.

Oh, she’s back, stateside. (scaredy cat) They believe NK may have a long range missile that could hit the US. If they do - game changer.

David (?) discussing 5027 plan. Don’t want to trigger bigger war.

Greta Van Sursten - April 15 is Kim Jung Un’s birthday; they will want to do something spectacular.

My question is: Then what?

They shoot 'a' missile. Do they have a follow-up plan. Do they not anticipate any reprisals?

Or, are they just making noise like Daddy Tyrant used to make?

==

I am of the opinion that China is allowing them to making noise and see what kinds of reponses they get.

Asa Hutchinson on FOX touting his 250 page comprehensive report on protecting students (Task Force for School Safety), armed guards only a small part of it. Teachers should teach, not be expected to become the armed guards.

Wallace asking him about background checks. Criminal history or mental illness. Hutch opposes gratuitous background checks.

Incentive for the States to put more information into the background check database.

Asa states; “No matter what you do, bad guys are going to get guns.”

Talking about video games, mental health issues. You can’t expect the federal government to solve this problem because it’s not solvable, it’s a societal issue.

Obama’s position is a political agenda.

He will say nothing that is true nor important.

His only value is to prompt you to channel surf somewhere else, or go do something useful until he's done lying and being offensive.

I shall respond to most of your talking points.

...I heard about the Benghazi Mom. Probably be more on this next week.

...I don't know to which you refer as regards some sort of Bone flying over North Korea. Did you mean drone or something?

...tell me more about private police forces.

...As I understand it, Obama wants to cap retirement accounts at three million.

You know, you HAVE to pay taxes on those dollars eventually. I got a story about that.

What's Obamer hope to gain except scaring folks away from IRA/401K's?

Am buying a "green" skillet from Walmart this week, next week I shall be merrily tossing vegetables into the air whilst wearing chef's hat and, of course, with sous chef Gerald by my side ready to help.

Below Gerald stalking a mouse last week. He caught not ONE, but TWO mice. Three other cats in the house and Gerald catches all da mice. Heh.
