Neshua, you really are an idiot aren't you?
I am a business owner and if I'm required to pay anyone more than they produce with a reasonable profit, they are gone!!!! This law will cause most of the unskilled and lower producers to be ex employees.
Small business does the Lion share of employment in the country.
In my company, Overhead is a cost, big cost ......Materials are a break even at beast,...
equipment well you should get the picture.
The ONLY WAY TO MAKE A PROFIT and recover the costs are the value added by employees over their salaries and related costs. Workmens comp is 24.8% in my industry, payroll taxes etc.
You can't pay some one $12 an hour plus another $6 in insurance and payroll expenses without expecting them to produce at least $20-30 and stay in business period!!! Then comes the illegals being payed off the books by many of my competitors
Bush only embarrassment is that he gave into everything the likes of Reid and Pelosi wanted in an effort to reach across the aisles. Big mistake. That bunch of cowards liberal trash turned the tables on him.
Take it back a bit. What if we had Obama instead of Reagan?? No drones, no smart bombs, military cut to the bone especially after Carter.
Everything that Obama has at his disposal was put in place by his predecessors and he is Fing it up bad!!
your a walking Enigma,
You remind me of Allen Combs, keep drinking the Obama coolaid no mater what mistakes he makes, enough said!!
Where do you suppose Syria got all those chemical weapons when they don't have the means or infrastructure to create them? Wasn't the story that they were moved to Syria from Iraq? I could post many links but the Yahoo "FASCISTS"
control our discussions

There's that favorite word of Nausies, " Fascist"
At least this time it fits. Now look carefully, Putin, ....control private property and peoples lives......HUMMM sounds like Obaumer.
and don't forget Bush plan This is from 2009
President Obama scrapped his predecessor’s proposed antiballistic missile shield in Eastern Europe ordered instead the development of a reconfigured system designed to shoot down short- and medium-range Iranian missiles.
BO is always behind the curve except for campaigning.
the decision churned domestic and international politics as Republican critics at home accused Mr. Obama of betraying allies and caving in to Russian pressure, while officials in Eastern Europe expressed discomfort and confusion at the dramatic shift. President Dmitri A. Medvedev of Russia, who is to meet with Mr. Obama in New York next week, reacted cautiously as Moscow tried to determine whether the new system was less threatening to its own security.
Mr. Obama’s transformation of the missile defense program is one of his administration’s sharpest revisions of the national security policy he inherited from Mr. Bush. At the same time, he resisted pressure from liberals in his party to eliminate the program altogether and he produced an alternative that effectively guaranteed that the United States would deploy some form of European antimissile shield in the near future.
We got the seed money which fueled the technological boom of the 90"s and balanced the budget Clinton got credit for. The budget was balanced on wall st tax revenues from the countless companies like Microsoft, dell Cisco, etc.
Reagan gave enormous tax incentives to companies to develop their ideas and the digital wave leaped us into the future financially and well as a super power.
What are you kidding Nausia,
The ban was against harvesting babies for stems cells. Anyone and everyone knows the best stem cells come from placenta and no one bans other methods of harvesting the need samples.
Your idiot in charge cut the defense budget and Putin is playing chess with a kindergarden marble playing clown posing as a commander in chief!
Obama gave away any leverage with the defense missiles in eastern Europe and played right into Putin's hands.
Life is life. to take life is killing. My wife's cousin has twin prematurely born just under 5 month. They are still alive at 12 months. Are they Life??
Funny tea party is responsible for things that require 2 sides
how I see it
Dictator Obama=government shutdown
Dictator Obama=spend to the point of credit debt to downgrade for US
Dictator Obama=loud mouth LIAR socialist revolutionaries.
Dictator Obama=desire to silence and crush any opposition example IRS scandal, Gun control gun running scandal, Fox news attempt to silence by FCC personnel in the news room, NSA wiretaps to etc.
Dictator Obama= facist takeover of control of private industry, health car, education (common core)
Isn't that what Obama is doing? Screw those who produce and generate opportunity to buy power for his crew???Why so blind? Do you see the American way in suppressing those you disagree with? "I have a pen and a phone"
So much for a 3 party system. Bring on the dictator!!!! and the tea party is killing America???????????? your brainwashed
holy cow, rick???
hope you took some advise and put some shares away way back when you said 10 is 10 and I said we will see you at $50.
We will see you again at $100.
my money has been in cldx at $2.77 a share big.
Franz has a lot to offer. He has a biotech industry viewpoint which has more credence than most of the other clowns on the board.
Unfortunately, politics discussion has merit.
I just wrote a check for my last years Cap gains which was 9% more than the previous administrations rates and if the socialist continue to hijack our economy, we will pay a lot more so that they can use our money to suppress people's desire to work in exchange for power and votes. Take it for what it's worth like2.
Xoma, it has had a good run but great potential in anti inflamation like ALXN, CLDX ect.
Baker bros have 1/3 the stock.
I bought back under $2 when I bought CLDX at $2.77
nausei why do you care?
If you socialist get your way the gains you get will be taxed away.
It alway confuses me to hear libs like you call conserves wingnuts.
I guess your views on politics are selctive and only apply to everyone else
