How can gov't justify raising the MW by 40+% when they state raising the fixed income for many seniors by 1.7% for those that receive only SS benefits is enough.. Keep in mind that the average monthly SS benefit is only $1,100/month. This means a lot of the elderly receive much less than the average. To me this is a very unjust gov't. BO says he is fair. Baloney. JMO Shame, shame and shame..
Price of oil is down. Keystone pipeline interest has fallen. Just be patient, the price of oil will go back to $100. Build the pipe line. If we don't all of that Canadian oil will be shipped to China at bargain prices. Our idiot politicians need to wake up. JMO.
the worst. They negotiate like idiots. They give everything and get nothing. They remind me of many new car buyers that look at the MSRP on the window and pay the full price. Shame, shame and shame.
Cuba drowning and like groping at a straw for survival and we get nothing.
ashhat, you are correct when you read the definition of atheism. You need to read the definition of religion. Atheism falls into the definition of religion. Religion--a strong belief of how the universe was created. Therefore atheism is a religion. You do not NEED a 'god' to define the word.
I wonder how much money Al has been paid by the companies he threatens to boycott their business? Someone on TV implied he has been paid millions under the table. AJMHO
It is time for idiot politicians to read Webster's Dictionary's definition of religion. It defines atheism as a religion. It is time for gov't to stop taking the side of the Atheists in condemning other religions.
Religion is defined as a strong belief in how the universe was created. Therefore atheism is a religion and must STOP trying to destroy all the other religions.
But, the main thing is fanatics must be squelched. Again, religion is a personal thing as it should and must be.
Religion is a personal matter as it should be.
I have complained ever since I bought a C-phone that the minutes I did not use should be carried over. After all I bought them and they should be mine, period. Even the cheap Tracfone lets you carry over your minutes. They don't lose a thing.
Disagree with you. I have owned BBT since '93, but I just sold 70% today. May sell the rest before the end of year for tax purposes and rebuy after the first of the year. 2 1/2% dividend is better than CD's.
From my observations Gov't mandated wages does not increase jobs. In fact MW is a job killer. Next, I keep hearing union reps screaming how good unions are for the non union people. The only people unions help are union members and make union leaders rich. Non union people are the ones that pay high prices for union products so union people can live better. If I am wrong please explain it to me. MO Shame, shame and shame.
What happened to the 1.4 million people of Detroit? Scads must have been union members.
What you are saying is that climate change is caused by humans. This says there are too many humans on earth. If this is the case, then there should be a world mandatory birth control to reduce the number of humans. Even the bible spoke of the number of humans earth can hold. 2 billion.
If you are a true believer of climate change let us hear your screams for world birth control.
I agree. All upper level mgt is way over paid, but whose fault is it????? Yours, the common stock holders....I have not seen one post here of you trying to organize a movement to mandate a more reasonable pay scale for mgt and a dividend for the stock holder.
In my opinion, the problem is you not raising h-ll of the collusion that goes on between the B of D's and upper mgt.
Think a little: Who is most instrumental in getting members to the B of D's? Upper mgt. Who is most instrumental in getting the powerful upper mgt?? The B of D's.
This amounts to very fertile ground for 'massive collusion'.
This problem exists in every large corporation in my opinion. Thinki about it. MO..
You better go back and re read your history books. Most of the welfare programs were started by FDR and they did not fix the problems of the country until WW II that got us out of the depression.. Every president since has just added to the programs to get votes to get elected. MO
Just heard Obama say, "today I am going to be honest with you". This implies that everything he has said in the past is not 'honest'. What a speech. Doesn't say much for the speaker. AJMHO Shame, shame and shame.
