"Man from Oxford… um, even if you're doing an opinion show, rather than the nightly news, you can still be a liar. Having an opinion show doesn't mean you can lie and its ok. WTH is wrong with people. You know, when you try to make excuses for your side, rather than call a spade a spade, it make you look like a fool. Applies to both parties. "
Man from Norwich

"Here's another sign of an extremist: You take a post that attacks both parties as an attack of your guys and a defense of the "other" guys. You can't take the partisan blinders off long enough to admit both sides do the same crap. "

"I wonder what Progressive sympathizers would say if a Repub prez said he had expanded his authority and if congress passes a law overturning what he's done, he will veto it.

"Just wondering but isn't parking on North Broad St as well as other streets banned until April 1st? In theory to allow easier removal of snow.

"Chrysler should drop the Jeep line or put some bigger motors in them. Yet to follow one or see one that can go over 40mph. The CJ5 can just barely make 40mph because it has such a short wheel base,it bounces all over the road which makes them easy to roll over. Full size SUV or 4x4 trucks are the same price better buy."
