You need to look up in Webster's the definition of 'racist' Racist you are not, what you are is a 'Capitalist'. One that believe the Old Testament, When God told Moses and then Abraham, "If you don't work you don't eat". The God, from all religions makes the same statement.
Liberals/progressives/socialists do not believe in this God. They all believe it is the responsibility of gov't to take care of every one even those that are too doo--to do for themselves. .
My heart cries for any one that is needy. John a friend of mine wanted to help all of those in need, but when I explained to him how much he has to give up to take care of them he changed his mind. He was only wanting to give a little, not a lot. Socialism does not work. MO.....
I believe the D of L has estimated there is about 20,000,000 illegals. Illegals are every nationality, race and religion. Federal, state, county and city gov't has laws against illegals, but they are not enforced. Citizens must obey all laws. If violated and you are caught you will suffer the penalty. MO.......
People, OCZ has nothing left to sell. Toshiba has already bought all of the assets. A buyout gets you nothing. Think a little.
On a news channel: The ACA cheap bronze plan has a $5,500 deductible, plus co-pay, plus premium. Doesn't sound too cheap to me for healthy youth. I think BO has sold the kids a false bill of goods.
Most young people will not be able to afford this cheap plan unless BO subsidizes the cost almost 100%.
News channel says the tax payers only lost about $10 billion dollars on the GM bailout.
Just think he had to borrow over $400,000,000 for this super blunder. Time to get ride of this wastrel. MO
Unions driving up the cost of goods and services, I will accept, but not like. Gov't with their Minimum Wage and non-sensical rules and regulations is what is ruining the country. Gov't has no business in dictating wages and benefits. In Obama's word, "Period". MO.
cheyn: What is your point other than calling people names? If this is all you can do shame, shame on you.
the way it is computed. Dept of Labor and Stats does not include in the rate of those that have stopped looking for work. They are not classed as unemployed, they are classed as 'not working'. Therefore they are excluded from the computation.
Also, the country has every month about 225,000 new youth entering the labor mkt and the D O L shouts for joy when 200,000 new jobs are created. Not enough to cover the youth.
Gov't has us brain washed with their reporting. IMHO.
And just what is wrong with Bible thumping and titty swnging and titty sucking. Try it and you might like it. It just might ease your anxiety. IMO
Times don't change. When I worked for welfare, 45 years ago, as a counselor, I found out that if you took advantage of all of the programs plus the cash you were provided you cleared more as a recipient than as an employee. I requested that for the administration to FIRE me or lay me off so I could become a recipient rather than an employee. Needless to say this did not go over too well with my bosses.
Times really do change. The benefits now exceed a $15/hour job.
The warped liberals, Jimmy, Slick Willie, etc will all attend. What would the purpose be for Rand and Ted to attend? They have more important roles to play here. I'm sure they have sent their sympathy.
I do not doubt no_c. has a degree in economics. He probably missed ECON 1. I just listened to a CA Phd in Econ that was justifying raising MW because it would give low income people more money. How stupid can you get with a Phd.
Giving people just more money to spend when the cost of goods and services level out, they will not be able to buy more.
From the president through congress they think the same idiotic way. MO
Why no Merry Xmas from BO? At the age of 31 BO declared he was changing his muslim belief by joining Bro. Wrights Christian church to pacify his wife. We can only assume he believes now in Jesus Christ. If he doesn't wish the country Merry Xmas, maybe he does not believe in Jesus Christ. MO
This administration believes it can bend the laws to suit themselves. They take care of their buddies, unions and political contributors..
Inflation does make the price of all goods and services go up. Raising Minimum wage does make the price of all goods and services go up. Wages should go up, but it is not the responsibility of gov't to mandate wages and benefits of any company.
Wages and benefits are the responsibility of labor and mgt. Idiot gov't has no idea what a company can pay. Unions are losing out because gov't mandates benefits. Who needs unions?.
Get gov't out of private industry.
When the Supreme Court ruled in 1935 that MW was legal they also stated that MW was not smart. It was not smart in 1935 and it is not smart in 2013.
Let "fast food" charge what they want, but it should not be the result of gov't mandating how much the employer pays. Get gov't out of the private industry.:
As the Bible says, "YOU reap what you sow". Political and union corruption for 40 years has brought Detroit to its knees.
Empathy has nothing to do with wages a company pays.
I've dug ditches for MW, bagged groceries, worked in a factory and in a bowling alley. It was my choice to do that work. Those jobs and salary that I didn't like I quit and moved on..
Most of my life jobs were rather low pay, but I paid to put 3 people through college. No gov't help.
I do not feel sorry for those that do not try to better themselves but wait for a gov't handout.
