    Republicans-opposition for opposition sake

    They are only Republicans in name only, They are all from various factions of the tea party.
    How do you quantify economy destruction? The GDP is growing and has been for several years. It just seems like are misrepresenting the facts to create fear amd ignorance, the only reason people vote republican.

  • The last vestige of the Republican Party died in 2008. Bush's presidency was a disaster. Obama was elected under a unified nation. Democrats had a majority in house and senate. Obama quickly pushed through the stimulus and Obamacare. Congress was actually working the way it should under one party rule. Republicans were facing irrelevancy. Republicans were bitter their ideas were pushed aside mostly because they were bad ideas. Remember the stimulus checks Bush kept sending out. Nobody invested those properly, everybody just went out and bought a flat screen TV or some (probably foreign made) consumer goods. Obama largely coopted Obamacare ideas from Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney. Obama was firmly occupying the middle. Republicans were forced to the far right. They kept claiming the expansion of health coverage a government takeover of the insurance industry or promising seniors they would sitting in front of death panel or that deficits would explode. Their chosen tactic was misrepresenting/misinforming/misguiding thel legislation to their base to create fear and ignorance. Without opposition to Obamacare they would have nothing. Republicans throught if they didn't stand up and fight against these largely sensible reforms people would see them as spineless. They failed to recognize their are things worse than being spineless; namely brainless. They still haven't a thoughtful opposition to Obamacare based in reality. They haven't a arguement against immigration reform that isn't based in reality. It is opposition for opposition sake. It is productive for the country, it isn't productive for the future of the party. The worst case for republicans is the supreme court throws out subsidies for the federal exchange. They would face 2 options, the first is to fix the language in the ACA and admit their base that their opposition to Obamacare has just been for show all along, or two; let insurance rates skyrocket and face voter backlash. Either way, impotent.

    What Walmart's wage increase really means

    You are drinking the wal-mart PR koolaid. You sir are blind to reality. I know the one fact that republicans and democrats can agree on is that walmart pays dirt wages. They disagree on if that behavior is acceptable, but the fact that wal-mart doesn't pay a living wage is not contestable and $10/hour is not a living wage either. Walmart may tell you it raised wages out of the goodness of its heart, but that is their PR spin. Corporations don't have hearts, especially walmart. Obama's economy has worked. Walmart can't find people who will work for dirt wages. Doug McMillan doesn't want to be the cashier who has to spend 30 minutes dealing with the old lady with six thousand coupons so he has to find people who will do that for him. To achieve this goal he has to pay slightly less dirt wages than before.
    The point I am trying to make is once democrats grasp the whole labor shortage concept, game over for republicans on the economy and eventually immigration. Republicans are too far up their own idealogical a**es the understand the facts on the ground as they are happening.

    The american people never had the will to transform the middle east. The would need to commit to to giving the middle east a secular education, freedom of press, and women's rights. This isn't doesn't overnight, or over a decade, this is a generational commitment. Americans support wavers too much on the issue. Just get out completely, they will continue their miserable exisistence and leave us alone.

    Everyone enjoying this GOP stock market?

    the stock market rising has benefited everyone with a 401K.

  • The president has the ability to pardon whoever he want; guilty or not. Instead everyone's of prosecuting immigrants, and then the president giving out hundreds of thousands of pardons which is well within his constitutional power. He is just telling everyone not to waste their time and resources prosecuting people he will just pardon.

    If you the GOP or the democrats are resposible for the stock market rising for the past 6 years, you are a partisan idealogue. The truth is the Fed is responsible for the stock market appreciation.

  • Walmart wouldn't just give a raise to its workforce out of the goodness of their heart, Come on, they are walmart, they have no heart. They pride themselves of their ruthlessness. The truth of the matter is, their is a swiftly approaching shortage of unskilled labor. To attract and retain their labor force they are having to pay higher wages. This isn't them caving to liberal pressure for higher wages. This is how wages are supposed to rise. Supply and demand for labor. I would certainly expect big business soon to push for immigration reform because it will increase the labor pool and they might be able to attract some cheap immigrant labor to maintain their competitive advantage(price).

    Walmart didn't raise wages because of liberal protests demanding higher wages. Walmart may tell you that is the case because it looks good for PR. But the truth of the matter is their work force is leaving and without higher wages, they are unable to attract enough applicants willing to work for minimum wage. This is how wages are supposed to rise. Not through government intervention, but by supply and demand for labor. Walmart has to compete for an increasinly scarce resources (unskilled laborers). If walmart and other corporations who thrive on cheap labor are smart they will start demanding visas for stockers and cashiers and greeters and all the other positions they need to fill for as cheap as possible to perserve their competitive advantage(price).

  • Walmart would not just raise wages out of the goodness of their heart. They have no heart. The truth is their is a fast approaching shortage of unskilled labor. Obama's economy is working, Evil corporations have to raise their wages to attract any job applicants at all let alone retain them. Soon you will see a push by non-ideological businesses for immigration reform so they can maintain a cheap labor pool.

    Exactly what in common core are you opposed to? God forbid students have a minimum standards such as the ability to read or do simple arithmetic. I know republicans think being an intellectual is a bad thing.

  • So many things wrong with this.
    1. AP classes cost $75, a US history in college cost $1500 at a state school. They are jacking up the cost of education thousands of their own kids.
    2. I think they banned for not teaching American Exceptionalism or too closely resembling common core.
    Oklahoma you are the reason NOBODY should be teaching American Exceptionialism. I will grant you that everyone has a constitutional right to be an idiot, and whatever issues you have with common core make you an idiot. You do not have the right to force future generations to same level of idiocy.

  • Whoever didn't see the internal divisions of the republican party would continue to cause gridlock in washington was delusional. Republicans are pointing fingers at senate democrats like it is going to sway public opinion. They are delusional as well. Their idealogy blinds them to reality.
