Use of presidential executive decrees is not being the leader of the U. S. he has set himself up as the 'dictator' of the U. S. 3 more years of a dictator and their will be no 'America'. IMHO.
Last job I had 25 years ago, the women were making the same or more than the men, production was a factor.. This was career women. Short time employees always make less whether male or female.
What has ticked me is BO, Reid and Pelosi said my health care costs would go down by 25% if ACA was passed. It has passed. . I'm waiting. My Medicare and supplemental are going up not down as promised. . When I am promised something and you do not deliver, the only way I can interpret this is I've been lied to. This is a terrible position our leaders have put us in.
if the ACA was passed. How come my Medicare and supplemental insurance is going up, not down the 25%. Politicians will tell you anything even lie to be elected.
This is a shame, shame and a shame on all the politicians that passed ACA from where I sit. Just my opinion... Sometimes I get the feeling from expressing my opinion that the FBI, CIA, FED, IRS, EPA, etc will be sitting at the head of my drive way when I get home. MO..
Old Indian Chief said, "That man speaks from both sides of his mouth".
It appears he will say what ever the group he is speaking to wants to hear. Old Indian Chief knows what he is talking about.
These companies that pay little or no tax all have great CPAs. The IRS law only consists of about 76,000 pages and is loaded with loop holes. All the CPA has to do is find the hole and the taxes are reduced..
in health and education when these are states rights, not the federal gov't's and why is gov't mandating wages based on need instead of productivity? Our elected reps in congress should be forced to take a course on the constitution before they are sworn in.
Every economist knows wages are to be determined by productivity instead of need,, unless they slept through ECON 101.
Voters thinks about this.
Common stock holders are supposedly the owners of a corporation.
When a corporation's profits come in how are they divided? It appears that upper mgt gets the biggest share followed by the B of D's. Lower class employees get a trickling of the profits. The share holders are at the bottom of the ladder in sharing of the wealth, usually getting none..
I agree that mgt is responsible for the well being of the company, but I do not agree that they deserve such outrageous increases is salary and benefits over all others. CEO and others with million plus dollars yearly income, no way. Just my opinion.
Who gives a #$%$ about what it was during Carters or Reagans time. We only give a #$%$ about what is going on to day.
Inflation is measured from where you stand and how you compute it. Gov't computes it with the cost of about 250 different items. And the # they get is correct for that computation and gov't, but for the middle to lower income class of people the # of items that most of their money is spent on is about 5 items: Food, clothing, shelter, gas, utilities,.... Inflation for this group is closer to 15%, not the 1.5% the gov't computes. JMO
Between corrupt elected officials and greedy union leaders the benefits that go to gov't employees is UNSTOPPABLE.
I like what FDR said 80 years ago, unions are ok in the private sector, but there should never be unions in gov't. JFK erased FDR's ideas and allowed gov't employees to unionize. Today in my county the average pay in the private sector is about 30k, in the gov't sector it is about 40k. This is not fair to the tax payers. Just think, the private sector must give his meager earnings to the gov't so gov't employees can live better. Jesus would object taking from the poor and giving to the rich. Think about it.
I cannot under stand the thinking of most politicians and idiots. Their goal is to raise the minimum wage with their goal to give people more money to spend and to raise people out of poverty. When the price of labor goes up the cost of all goods and services goes up. It usually takes about 6 month for all prices to re-adjust to the new cost of labor.
Now you must think a little. People that are working for minimum wage are 'poor' and if the person is married with 1 child they are eligible for welfare. Let us assume the MW is raised like BO wants to $10/hr or more. Think. Those people working and making more than MW are not 'poor' and eligible for welfare. As soon as the MW is raised to $10, everyone that was earning between the MW and $10 are the new poor and most will be eligible for welfare.
When the MW is raised you give the people more money to spend but the prices of goods and services has gone up. People have more money to spend but they cannot buy more.
Gov't interference, as good as the idiots intentions are, they do not help the situation, but makes it worse. If you can think, you will understand what I have said. IMHO.
Only in gov't. Think about it. You get a gov't job that pays very well about 40% above the private sector and if you do the job that you are hired to do then "YOU GET A BONUS". Only happens in gov't. Private sector may pay a bonus if you go way beyond what you were hired to do. Not gov't, they pay a bonus almost if you show up for work. Thinki about it. TV news.
Brazil is on the list to receive foreign aid. This administration ain't too smart. We have borrowed money from Brazil, we lend money to Brazil, we support their oil business, then we turn around and GIVE THEM MONEY, FOREIGN AID. We have elected the biggest idiots the world has ever produced. IMHO.
Most of you miss the point that 'religion is a personal matter as it should be'. We live in a country with so many different values. I remember as a kid many years before Roe vs Wade I would hears that Mrs. X was going out of town for a while. I finally learned these women were going for illegal abortions. Personally I am against abortion so all of my pregnant women had their baby. If you believe it is OK to have an abortion then you must live with your beliefs. Passing a law to outlaw abortions does not stop abortions.
What irks me the most on legal abortions is how many women lack the ability or brains to decide if they want a baby or not. My thinking is; surely she should be able to decide in say 3 to 4 months if she wants to be a mother. So many women are deciding as late as 269 days or 8 and 9/10 months for an abortion and doctors standing in line to perform it. Late term abortion just does not make any sense. In my humble opinion. Think about it.
Check on the internet regarding wages within your county. In my county the average pay in the private sector is about $30k/year; the average pay for gov't employees is over $40/year. Not far from 40%. A disgrace that people with low incomes must pay high taxes to give to gov't employees so they can live better. Even Jesus would complain about this. Just my opinion.
Fair ain't Fair. Obama and legislators are mandating a 40% increase for low income people but refuse to even mention all of the poor seniors that are on a fixed income. This act of gov't, mandating wages, drives many seniors into abject poverty.
Raising the minimum wage increases the cost of all goods and services and fixed income people get no help or even consideration. Just my opinion of gov't and how it affects seniors..
As gov't mandates wages and benefits that affect a company's bottom line the first thing every company starts doing is reducing the number of employees. I remember in the coal mines every time the union got badly needed wage increases the company reduce the number of employees with automation. Today 3 men run a long wall that produces as much coal as back in the old days that 500 hand loaders mined.
I agree laborers need increases in wages and benefits, but they must come from the free mkt , not by gov't mandates.
Unions gave up much of their bargaining rights to gov't by letting gov't dictate wages and benefits. I would hope unions wake up and reclaim some of their uses and keep gov't out of the private sector. JMHO.....
Where have you been most of your life. I am here to tell you welfare has paid better than burger flipping for over 40 years and each year it gets better.. Great living quarters low cost housing, utilities, food stamps, medical, optical, dental, cell phone, clothing, GED, voc. ed, child support, transportation, etc plus you get to sleep in, play with the kids, chase your spouse around before lunch. You really have to be dense to believe life is better flipping burgers. This is the way I see it.
As a die hard democrat, I believe it is time to run out of office all of my elected brother democrats. It is time to elect patriots like we used to do, not egotist, crooks and perverts. MO.
