Rogue, Rogue, Poppo was talking about the IRS. Typically, and thinking everyone's attention span is as limited as yours, and thinking you're fooling anyone, you switch to Obamacare. 6000 lawsuits? Where'd you get that? Proof please. Admitting there are 6000 lawsuits with probable support from insurance companies and health care facilities in the background, how does that size up compared to 310 million inhabitants?
How shallow minded you are. How about the faith based companies who are being forced to violate their religious beliefs? I bet you would get upset if your tax dollars went to support orphanages because you think they should be aborted rather than being given up for adoption.

Lawsuits Against Obamacare Birth-Control Mandate Begin This Week, 22 May 2013 By Courtney Coren

Lawsuits challenging the birth-control mandate in Obamacare are to be heard by federal appeals courts beginning Wednesday, as private businesses opposed, on religious grounds, to the healthcare requirement try to push the issue to the Supreme Court.

Two of the cases start Wednesday in the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago. Oral arguments in three other cases are to be heard in other appeals courts by early June, according to Politico.

The challenges — cases brought by a crafts store, an auto-parts manufacturer, a contractor, a woodworker, and light manufacturer — all argue that the Obamacare requirement that insurance plans cover birth control violates the religious beliefs of the owners, and the companies should receive the same waiver or exemption as nonprofit religious organizations.

Differences Between Right to Work and Non-Right to Work States
Larry Gigerich
By: Larry Gigerich - Managing Director, Ginovus
Category: Economic Development
For many years, economic development officials and site selection consultants have discussed the key differences between right to work and non-right to work states in the Midwestern part of the United States. In many cases, companies will not even consider non-right to work states for new facilities, out of concern for how their operations will be affected. When our firm is completing site selection analysis for a company, the question of right to work versus non-right to work is asked the majority of the time.
1. Percentage Growth in Non-Farm Private Sector Employees (1995-2005)
a. Right to Work States: 12.9%
b. Non-right to Work States: 6.0%
2. Average Poverty Rate-Adjusted for Cost of Living (2002-2004)
a. Right to Work States: 8.5%
b. Non-right to Work States: 10.1%
3. Percentage Growth in Patents Annually Granted (1995-2005)
a. Right to Work States: 33.0%
b. Non-right to Work States: 11.0%
4. Percentage Growth in Real Personal Income (1995-2005)
a. Right to Work States: 26.0%
b. Non-right to Work States: 19.0%
5. Percentage Growth in Number of People Covered by Employment Based Private Health Insurance (1995-2005):
a. Right to Work States: 8.5%
b. Non-right to Work States: 0.7%

You wrote :"Can you explain why NON-union auto companies are doing real well in America while the union auto companies are struggling? And most of those non-union companies are in Right-to-Work states too and guess which states have lower unemployment rates?"

So easy.

1) Non-union employees are working at almost half the unionized wages;

2.) Benefits have been cut all over the south where these companies have moved and all new unionized employees up north;

3) Non-unionized companies, including Japanese and Korean upstarts and BMW in the south, have but a trickle of pensioned employees, thereby not affecting the bottom line. The Big Three and so many other huge companies like airlines, have MORE PENSIONED EMPLOYEES ENJOYING PENSION CHEQUES than actual employees. How can you perform like that? At the time of "prosperity', do you think these companies did not know the burden these pension plans would become 20, 30 years hence? Do you think actuaries did not warn them of this impending disaster, probably urging increased employer/employee contributions to keep pension plans afloat? Noooo, hey, increased employers' shares would diminish dividends and bonuses.'Let's cross the bankrupt pension plan in 20-30 years bridge when we come to it, and the gov't will fix it", was probably the catch word.

Right-to work state hardly pay a living wage, which is probably part of the reason why food stamps are up, as one cannot raise a family at $20 and hour.

Unions must share some of the responsibility for the Detroit disaster, who in his1her right mind would contest that? But, every single time, anytime a firm or city goes belly-up, to automatically jump on unions is unrealistic and...just plain stupid.

Well said!
Just one question. What is it about "Tea bags" that you disapprove of?
I read their platform and none of it seems fit for disdain.
I asked this question of someone before and they informed me that it was some rich people that began the movement.
They were unable to expand on why this made the word "Tea Party" or "Tea Baggers" derogatory.
Maybe you can help me out here.
I could be wrong but too my understanding the Tea Bags are all pro Wall Street and against Regulations which lead to the 2008 Bush and Cheney financial meltdown.

It is a non sequitur for small government in the Tea party.

Yep, according to the 2000 Census, Detroit was our 11th most populated city (and Jacksonville was our 13th) but by 2010 Detroit had dropped to ...... 18th and Jacksonville was now our 11th.
Isn't it odd that the more Conservative a city is, the faster it is growing!!!
Even with a Black Democrat mayor, Jacksonville is still probably the largest Conservative city in America. That must piss of Jacqueau who probably considers Mayor Alvin brown to be a dark-cracker.

5 convicted over deadly Costa Concordia cruise liner wreck in Italy
By Barbie Latza Nadeau and Laura Smith-Spark, CNN, Sat July 20, 2013
Rome (CNN)-- Five people were convicted of manslaughter and causing personal injury Saturday over the deadly wreck of the Costa Concordia cruise liner off the Italian coast last year -- but only two may serve any prison time under the plea bargain accepted by the judge.
The five's convictions, after Judge Pietro Molino accepted their plea bargain Saturday morning, are the first in the case.
They were originally co-defendants with the cruise ship's captain, Francesco Schettino, whose trial began this week.

What a hoot. The Teaxas AG spends all his time suing Obama!!!

TexMessage: Greg Abbott’s All Star boxscore — 27 lawsuits against Obama, 3 vs. Bush
BY HANNAH JEFFREY : July 17, 2013

Greg Abbott often says that an average day’s work as Texas Attorney General goes a little something like this:“I go into the office, I sue Barack Obama and I go home.”

The Texas Republican has sued the federal government 27 times over the course of the Obama Administration on a vast array of topics, including Obamacare, the Voting Rights Act and pollution standards set by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

The number of times Abbott sued the Bush administration? Just three.

And with almost half the population in Florida being of Latino roots, one would assume you'd be motivated to learn a few key words, except for the profane ones of course. If half the population here was of German origin, rest assured I'd learn a few words beside Sieg Heil.

I suppose the fact that he is a TEXAS republican has nothing to do with more lawsuits against Democrat Obama than against Texas native GWB. Why do you post such subjective tripe?

The tragic death of an average 17 year old child was just that;a tragedy. Obama and others are using this tragic accident as a political tool. Trayvon Martin was an average 17 year old,as a 17 year old, Barack Obama was a privileged youth attending an extremely expensive,exclusively private school in Hawaii,would go on to another exclusive and expensive school in California and would later attend Columbia and Harvard. Obama has been coddled his entire life. How can Obama claim to compare himself to the average youth of today?

Obama with the help of the mass media has been able to stifle all 32 scandals of this administration that would have toppled most other administrations,and yet he was able to get re-elected. Reminds me of Clinton.
