You can look at all the republican candidates, which one will turn any blue states red? The answer is none of them will turn any blue states red against Hillary. If you believe so many illegal aliens voting, why so few cases of voter fraud?
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).
You're telling me that their low low prices are subsidsized by the gub'ment? My belief system is shattered.
according to the last income statement tax expense was $8.1 billion, EBT was $24.65 billion. Which means Walmart has an effect tax rate of 32.8%. Not the corporate tax rate tax of 35%. So Walmart got around $540 million in tax breaks or corporate welfare if you will.
Remember Stimulus Checks, hahahahahahahaha. Everyone in the US gets a check for $300 and blew it on a new flat screen TV or whatever foreign made consumer goods they wanted. It didn't stimulate any economy except China's.
In absolute terms, It might be the 5th highest corporate payer, but it terms of a percentage of its income I can find any number of small businesses that happily pay the full 35% corporate income tax. Why should walmart get preferential tax treatment?
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.
The thought of him in a general election is hilarious. He would lose every state Romney lost plus Arizona, Indiana, and North Carolina.
In actuality states that have raised minimum wages have comparble if not lower unemployment rates than the states that haven't. Your idealogy isn't based in reality.
Sorry buddy, Just because she was secretary of state doesn't mean she loses her 4th amendment rights, get a warrant. Just like anybody else.
Conservatives always really bitter that they pay taxes so support food stamps blah blah blah. They don't account for their property values. With an increase in homeless, hungry people with cause property values to sink like a stone. According the conservatives roughly but them receives food stamps so your neighborhood isn't immune.
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.
Your accusations of cover up and lies are baseless. It's ok to admit to everyone that you are better off than you were in 2008.
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.
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.
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).
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.
