Jobs are shipped overseas because the product would be too expensive to manufacture in America. Taxes, union extortion, EPA, OSHA regulation, high energy prices all created by big government. Apple IPADs would cost $2,000 if built in America. duh
OBAMA’S PROBLEM: Obama lacks an agenda to compensate for his lousy record. Yep. He made things worse, and he doesn’t have a plausible plan to make things better. So it’s binders and Big Bird and “war on women.”
Why can't they understand that?

Vice President Joe Biden asked supporters Thursday at a Nevada campaign event,“How many of you know someone who served in Iraq or Iran?”

Biden was joined at the event by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and embattled Senate candidate Rep. Shelley Berkley. At Biden’s question, Reid raised his hand.

At the event, Biden also said that when it comes to the Young Guns – a group of younger Republicans, including Rep. Paul Ryan — the “bullets are aimed at you.”

WHITE DEMOCRAT=yeoman

yeoman, in English history, a class intermediate between the gentry and the labourers; a yeoman was usually a landholder but could also be a retainer, guard, attendant, or subordinate official. The word appears in Middle English as yemen, or yoman, and is perhaps a contraction of yeng man or yong man, meaning young man, or attendant. Geoffrey Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales (late 14th century) depicts a yeoman who is a forester and a retainer. Most yeomen of the later Middle Ages were probably occupied in cultivating the land; Raphael Holinshed, in his Chronicles (1577), described them as having free land ...

<quoted text> Yep sure do. anybody who thinks they can only work 40 hours a week and improve their life (I mean climb into the upper middle class) is kidding themselves. I ,at times, worked over 85 hours a week for years. That was when I was young. People were like you need to enjoy your self more. They worked their 40 and went home. Guess what! They are still working that 40 hour week and will until they just can't anymore. Then they will rely on whatever is left of the government assistance till they die. Me? Well you know that story.
Flack working 85 hours a week at some sh!t job isn't going to get you ahead, if you can even do that anymore. If they are not moving their jobs overseas companies are stripping away benefits and cutting hours. Look I understand what you are saying but that isn't as viable an option as it was years ago.

WASHINGTON -- At a recent campaign stop in Pennsylvania, Mitt Romney expressed amazement at a gas station's touch-screen sandwich-making process.
"I went to a place called Wawa's today, you ever been there?... You press a little touchtone keypad, you touch this, touch this, go pay the cashier, there's your sandwich. It’s amazing,” Romney said.

Approximately 5 to 10 percent of the white population fell into the fourth class. Poor whites were landless tenant farmers and poor laborers who went from job to job as available. The majority of this class was illiterate and performed the lowest level of jobs. Although excluded from the ranks of the social, political, and economic elite, poor whites, like yeomen, supported the basic social hierarchy established by the planter class because it protected their position as higher than that of the enslaved. Many common whites not only verbally supported the slave system, they also served on slave patrols and county militias that guarded against slave revolts and tracked down runaways. When the time came for war, this class filled the Confederate ranks and fought to defend the very system that kept them at the bottom of the white social order. This is perhaps one of the reasons the Civil War has been described as “a rich man’s war, but a poor man’s fight.”

North Carolina had a rather large population of free African Americans — 30,463 in 1860 — who constituted the fifth social class. Approximately 10 percent of the black population fell into this category. The most sizable free black communities were in Wilmington, New Bern, and Halifax. Over two-thirds of this class was mulatto, that is, persons of mixed race. Although some blacks traced their freedom back to the Revolution, or even before, most obtained liberty from manumission or emancipation by their owner. In the wake of Nat Turner’s rebellion and fears of other insurrections, freedom by emancipation became more difficult by mid-century, with new laws restricting where freed slaves could live and setting high costs to the owner for freeing them. Some enslaved people purchased their own freedom or freedom for family members. Owners sometimes hired out trusted slaves, allowing them to keep a portion of their salary. If an enslaved person could save enough funds and the owner was agreeable, freedom could be purchased.

They should be able to get them at McDonalds drive through, then they can just go right home and not have to get out of the car and stuff.

Remember to say hi to the attendant, that's about as close as you will come to mainstream America.

Speaking of Dominos, that new commercial they are running with the hand made pizza dough with the lady and her bare hands and finger nails pressing the dough, put some gloves on for cryin' out loud. Homer knows how many of you don't wash your hands after using the bathroom without mentioning any names.

Needless to say Homer will be passing on the hand made pizza from Domino's.
