Heinz ketchup is the best so I'll continue to buy it.

Knock yourself out. I don't eat ketchup.

But if I did, it wouldn't be that cheap crap.

I'd get the good stuff.

      the point was that teresa heinz kerry, whose husband rdgrnr claims to dislike not hate, owns heinz ketchup. since he is claiming to be the oracle of the appalachians he could singlehandedly begin a boycott of heinz ketchup (if there are any stores in appalachia) to help bankrupt the kerrys, helping to end the seige of ma dems influence in this country which he seems to be obsessed with defeating. he may not be wrong, but having the hill people using their food stamps on another brand would be a good way to start.

        I reckon if we wanted ketchup (which we don't) we'd just commence to mashin maters.

        But we don't use ketchup up in here.

        We use gravy.

        Do heinz make gravy?

        Don't make us no never mind no how.

        We make our own.

          You keep buying those American products and if I ever have a need for a hockey puck I'll give you a call.

          Try some of that cheap ketchup on your wolverine casserole. Yummmm!

            their breaking the spirit of the law by useing a loophole,and he knows it, think he has a law degree,most of em do.

            leona "only little people pay taxes " helmsley would be proud .

            Until the loophole is closed they're within their rights to make use of it. It's the way the system works.

              When you can't watch it live... You can't trust it! The FL lottery did the same thing for the daily games.

              The suits that make the decisions are far too smart for their own good.

                  They make the laws for us, not them.

                  Just like Obamacare, they excluded themselves and their families from it.

                  Gotta hand it to Obama and his democrats, they take good care of themselves. No Death Panels or pain pills for their aged parents when they need operations. Only the best for their families. And who will pay for it? Us!

                  I can't wait to see the reaction of the clowns that voted for these guys when they go to sell their houses and find out they have to give 3 1/2% of any profit to the federal government to help support Obamacare. It's in the bill, it's law. That was one of the reasons Nancy Pelosi didn't want anybody to read the bill until they passed it. 

                  I'll never forget those words by Nancy Pelosi: "We have to pass the bill so we can see what's in it."

                    The important thing is that they're keeping the balls intact. So many states have used television costs as justification for computerizing drawings (even as some kept TV contracts going). Plus, IIRC, WCVB was only showing the drawing for The Numbers Game, and was just flashing a graphic for the other games. So, in a way, this is actually increasing public exposure.

                    Good point...

                          Inasmuch as the article I linked to deals directly with your phoney claim that lawmakers excluded themselves from "Obamacare," it is precisely on point!  Since you reject the Snopes team, perhaps you'll consider the Factcheck people's take on it:

                          http://www.factcheck.org/2010/01/lawmaker-loopholes/

                          By the way, just what do YOU consider is the TRUTH in this matter, and how do you support your position?  If you are going to spread garbage, you must be prepared to [try to] back it up.  A good start would be to cite articles in the final legislation that disagree with the Snopes assessment.

                              "Thanks for your attempt to circumvent truth by a deft comparison of apples and oranges by the liberal husband and wife team of SNOPES when neither of the two (apples or oranges)  had anything to do with the topic at hand, Nancy.

                              But it's the thought that counts."

                              Inasmuch as the article I linked to deals directly with your phoney claim that lawmakers excluded themselves from "Obamacare," it is precisely on point!  Since you reject the Snopes team, perhaps you'll consider the Factcheck people's take on it:

                              http://www.factcheck.org/2010/01/lawmaker-loopholes/

                              By the way, just what do YOU consider is the TRUTH in this matter, and how do you support your position?  If you are going to spread garbage, you must be prepared to [try to] back it up.  A good start would be to cite articles in the final legislation that disagree with the Snopes assessment.

                              LOL, from wiki to snopes to annenberg, ha ha ha ha ha! What a joke you are.

                              For the love of God, Nancy, who the hell are you going to source next, George Soros? Harry Reid? Barney Frank? Michael Moore?

                              I've said it before and I'll say it again and you keep proving it: You are an insufferable moron, Nancy.

                              You're still my favorite tranny whipping boy though.

                              Alrighty then! Back to the men's room with you, Nancy!
