That's a giant slap in the face to every hard working American. Trying to take credit for their hard work while kicking them in the rear.
that WMT is selling? Those grown in the USA bananas grown in Minnesota. Okay, not yet, but it wouldn't surprise me if that's the next claim they'll make.
By the way, the stock futures are down quite a bit this evening. If the markets go down a lot tomorrow, use some of that cash you have on the sidelines to start buying on the dip for some nice trades. You really don't think the creditors are just going to walk away, do you? They got greedy but will start talking sense to keep their investment from being worthless. News of new discussions will send the markets back up and you can cash in for a nice profit. I do hope you have a lot of cash in reserve. After all, I warned you to get into mostly cash a few months ago. It paid off and will pay off in a big way when you make all that money on these trades. I know the people who were holding WMT and sold when I told them to get out are ready to get on their knees and kiss my feet. No need for that though. I'm just in this to help others, not to be praised.
Glad to see the great Greek people stand up for their rights. Trying to force ridiculous demands on the good people of Greece was just another attempt by the few to take it all and leave the average people with nothing and living in squalor. POWER TO THE PEOPLE
Greece has voted a resounding "No" in its referendum on whether to accept the latest bailout proposal from its European creditors.
And for Nobel Laureate and New York Times columnist Paul Krugman, this is a win for all of Europe.
"Tsipras and Syriza have won big in the referendum," Krugman wrote on Sunday, "strengthening their hand for whatever comes next. But they’re not the only winners: I would argue that Europe, and the European idea, just won big — at least in the sense of dodging a bullet."
Krugman, who last week wrote that he would vote "No" if he were voting in the referendum, argues in his post on Sunday that Greece's vote against the bailout program Greece's creditors were seeking to impose on it strengthens the case for democracy in Europe.
Krugman writes that, "we have just witnessed Greece stand up to a truly vile campaign of bullying and intimidation, an attempt to scare the Greek public, not just into accepting creditor demands, but into getting rid of their government. It was a shameful moment in modern European history, and would have set a truly ugly precedent if it had succeeded."
And so with the Greek people shooting down the vision that other Europeans had for their economy and future prospects, Krugman believes that all Europeans — as voters and participants in democracy — won on Sunday.
As for whether this means Greece will leave the euro, Krugman says there is a decent case for a "Grexit" now, but says that no matter if Greece stays or goes, Sunday's vote shows that, "democracy matters more than any currency arrangement."
I am convinced that he is a Hillary plant to make the GOP look bad. If its not that, he has to be the dumbest person on the planet.
But hey, at least the very wealthy people in Kansas and the corporations they control are giving money to the GOP in exchange for those huge tax cuts that have gutted the government revenue.
Its just amazing the amount of damage Bush did to our country, isn't it? Never a republican in the white house again, never again.
Now maybe you'll finally wake up and see the huge problems Ronnie Reagan created by borrowing money at 18%. Of course, needless GOP wars sure have their costs too.
MADISON, Wis. (AP) — In a sudden reversal amid a stinging backlash, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker and GOP legislative leaders said they agreed Saturday to completely remove a part of the proposed state budget that would severely roll back open records laws.
Walker announced the decision in a joint statement Saturday with Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald, Assembly Speaker Robin Vos, and the co-chairs of the joint budget committee. They said that they're committed to open and accountable government.
"After substantive discussion over the last day, we have agreed that the provisions relating to any changes in the state's open records law will be removed from the budget in its entirety," the statement said. "... The intended policy goal of these changes was to provide a reasonable solution to protect constituents' privacy and to encourage a deliberative process between elected officials and their staff in developing policy. It was never intended to inhibit transparent government in any way."
The restrictions, which Republicans on the Legislature's Joint Finance Committee slipped into the proposed budget late Thursday, would shield nearly everything created by state and local government officials from Wisconsin's open records law, including drafts of legislation and staff communications. The proposal drew heavy criticism from liberals and conservatives alike, and was the subject of a withering front-page editorial in Saturday's Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
The sudden furor had become a serious distraction for Walker as he prepares to formally announce his candidacy for the GOP presidential nomination on July 13. He told reporters before an Independence Day parade in the Milwaukee suburb of Wauwatosa on Saturday morning that he planned to discuss the matter with legislative leaders after the weekend, the Journal Sentinel reported.
"My hope is, that after talking with them on Monday, we get to the point where it's either out completely or there's significant changes to it," he said.
The joint statement, issued at mid-afternoon on Saturday, made it clear that they didn't wait. The statement said the Legislature will form a committee to study the issue and allow for public discussion and input outside of the budget process.
Walker didn't specifically say in Wauwatosa whether he and his office were involved in crafting the proposed changes, whether he objected to them in advance, or specifically say who proposed the overhaul. The joint statement didn't address those points either.
Among the issues that have dogged Walker recently is the performance of a job creation agency he championed. The Wisconsin State Journal used the open records law that Republicans wanted to tighten to report in May that the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation made a loan to one of Walker's top donors. That report led other media organizations, including The Associated Press, to look into the matter, and the agency also came under scrutiny from the Legislature.
Walker's pre-parade comments were echoed by some Republican legislators Saturday, including two who voted for the changes just two days earlier.
Sen. Alberta Darling, co-chairwoman of the powerful budget committee, said they are now "working to eliminate" the open records limits.
I'm on my way to Costco in a little while to stock up for the holiday myself. Then its a fun filled holiday weekend and I'll be off the board but don't worry, you won't get too lonely as the board WMT losers will be on here all weekend posting and changing names more than people blink because they live in the south and are so poor that they can't afford to do anything else except sit on this board and make up stories about how successful they are. LOL Later gators.
By the way, he was also being paid to do fraud investigation for the Bush government. The Bush boys hired a fraudster to do fraud investigation. LOL But hey, he was contributing to the GOP.
because they will both be closed tomorrow so their workers can spend quality time with their family on the holiday. Isn't it great to see companies that actually care about and appreciate the workers who allow them to be in business and make money? A far cry from WMT who will dump on their employees at ever possible opportunity and go as far as stealing from them.
Its about a guy who went to Jerry Falwell's Liberty University and became a preacher. Besides his godly duties, on the side he was using a ponzi scheme, selling the foolish republican sheep shares in a mutual fund that didn't even exist. Of course, many of the people he cheated out of their money, forgave their good pastor. LOL What a bunch of fools. No wonder they come up with the joke GOP candidates for president that they do.
Oh well, there's always 2020 but I have a sneaking suspicion that the GOP will still be the same unwinnable mess they are now.
Headed for Greece in search of a sounder government. Kansas has cut taxes for the wealthy and turned it into an indigent state.
that hating people just because of the color of their skin, their nationality, their religion, their sexual preference or their gender is a mental illness and not a political position.
When you have another Bush (OMG) and a laughable lying Rubio as your front runners, you know you have major problems. The GOP has zero chance of taking over the white house so no decent GOP candidate will even run. Oh wait, the GOP no longer has any decent or credible people left in it.
As if the GOP didn't have enough problems already, this egotistical big mouth is creating so many problems for the GOP that he has become the Democrats best tool. You could spend billions on ads and you couldn't get this kind of bang for all that buck.
Earl Holt III, the leader of a white supremacist group that has ties to the racially motivated Charleston shooter is also a republican donor. Since 2011, he has donated $70,000, all to republicans. What else would you expect. He also didn't earn the money. He married a Jewish businesswoman and that's where he got the money. A typical republican. Remind you of any family who never earned their money but has billions off the back of others labor?
