Sprint is missing the boat in not having a $10/month plan with reasonable minutes and texts for the many million that only want to talk and text a little. The thing with many of these people they will upgrade within 6 months. Carlos Slim has 27,000,000 of such users. He is reported to be making millions.
My anxious liberal brother democrats can't wait till gas bottoms out. They are ANXIOUS TO RAISE THE FEDERAL GAS TAX . What did they do with the $800 billion dollars Obama laid out to fix the roads and bridges.??? That money is gone, who knows where and now they want to raise the tax on gas again with the propaganda that it will be used to fix the roads.
I do believe you can no longer believe what this present administration says. AJMHO.
6 NYC cops take down a man selling loose cigarettes. A dollar a piece. What a waste of gov't money. These 6 cops would have been earning their money if they had been directing traffic on the corner or helping an elderly across the street.
Let's see, each of these cops in NYC were/are earning at least $40k/year; this is about $240K/year all to take down a man trying to make a dollar. True it was probably against the law to sell single cigarettes.
What a waste. Before this is over it will cost the NY tax payer and the federal tax pay over $100 million dollars. Just like the city of Boston to capture the Marathon bomber, over a billion dollars.
The whole thing does not make sense to me. mo .
Gov't is now in the process of mandating over time wages. Gov't is in the process of mandating every facet of our life. Where are our civil rights? With over 200,000 new rules, regulations and laws in the past 6 years our rights are getting very slim. Thinki about it. TIJMHO
BO and the D of L fail to mention that there every month about 225 ,000 new youth enter the labor mkt.... So 321,000 jobs added in Nov. is not great as gov't preaches and gullible citizens believe. MOO
Just had a run in with a preacher and a few members of his congregation. Really had them stumped when I asked them what they believed. The members all had different opinions and the preacher could only come up with "you have to be saved". Terrible how little people know of their religion/church/denomination.
Who knows? Only the statistician that made the computations knows for sure. He knows what numbers he used or left out.......
So. The salary and benefits of upper mgt is a problem of stock holders. They are the ones that approve their benefits. It has nothing to do with what you make.
Unemployment is not down, only the number the D of L reports to satisfy the president and the gullible citizens. The 90+ million classed not working and underemployed are not includes in the BO numbers.
The rate reported is not a true number of the situation.
Let's hope you have enough in your personal retirement plans for you to maintain your current standard of living. Most people look at what is coming into day and fail to realize that the cost of living is going up rapidly and the increases in your plans is not keeping pace. Most retirees receive a great shock about 10 years down the road, assuming you live that long, that their income does not buy what it used to. I speak from experience.
I hope you are correct. I am long with my few shares. Only problem I see is that BABA is a Chinese company and pretty much controlled by the Chinese gov't.
Keep in mind, as the MANDATED price of labor goes up, the number of low paying jobs will disappear. I remember a neighbor talking about his first job in 1935, he was hired as a rail walker. His duty was to walk x hours up the railroad track and then back down the other side looking for any kind of a rail problem. He said it was not long before wages went up the RR cut out those jobs. Same thing has been happening today. What do you think happened to all of the gas station attendants? Cost of labor. Now all self service stations. You can look around you and see where many jobs disappeared.
All a company is interested in is their bottom line. Thinki about it.
MO. Al proclaims himself to be a civil rights leader, but to me he comes off as one of the country's biggest racist. How any gov't reps can use him as an advisor is if that rep is a racist. TIJMHO.
I agree SS should have been privatized many years ago. If it had been, instead of an average income of $1100/month SS, a person would be getting close to $6000/month. You can eliminate both SS and Medicare for the young, refund their's and the employer's contribution to them. Something must be done about ACA, what I don't know.
Thinki about it.
bad if we had gotten something for it. Past president did waste 2 trillion dollars in Iraq, but at the time almost all countries around the world thought running saddam hussan out of business was a good idea.. Shame, shame and shame..
Didn't leader Al see the black cop in attendance when the choke hold was applied? I guess Al was only concerned that it was a white cop that had the choke hold and the black cop was of no concern. Shame, sham e and shame.....
Unions reps are out there pushing for unions screaming that they are good for the economy and all people. . WHAT GOOD DOES A UNION PROVIDE FOR THE NON UNION PEOPLE/????.
When unions strike for higher wages and benefits and they get them, the cost of all of their goods and services goes up. Non union people do not get wage increases but must pay higher prices, but yet so many support these union goals. Does not make sense to me. I guess it is just that so many American are just gullible. MO
What a false statement. Citizens must obey all of the laws, but illegals are excused by the president. He has just made 5 million illegal aliens legal, excusing them for breaking the law.
Citizens do not get this treatment.
Wages going up due to the free market, a sin of the highest order when the gov't mandates wages.
You better listen very closely to the liberals. They are touting lower gas prices from one side of their mouth and calling for higher gas taxes from the other.
This die hard democrat is fed up with these liberal reps that are taking dramatic steps nibbling away at our civil rights. 200,000+ new rules, regulations and laws in just the past 6 years. And some of our posters can't see the damage they are doing. Shame, shame and shame. mO
