Pres Obama, a battery for a car, and sitting around playing board games...

"Factory has yet to ship out a single battery"

"HOLLAND, Mich.(WOOD)- Workers at LG Chem, a $300 million lithium-ion battery plant heavily funded by taxpayers, tell Target 8 that they have so little work to do that they spend hours playing cards and board games, reading magazines or watching movies."

Right because they require the same skills to manufacture as Nike's???

What was Bacon's Rebellion?In 1675 the lower class citizens of Virginia wanted to expand and gain cheaper land. The Yeoman farmers and non land holders wanted the government to expel or kill the Indians that were in the way of their expansion. In order to protect the upper class wealthy plantation owners, and have a ready supply of people for labor their plantation, both plantation owners and Governor Berkeley did not want this for the lower class. Against Governor Berkeley's orders, a militia attacked the Native Americans. In rebellion to these attacks the Native Americans started to raid the outer farms and plantations killing lower class colonists. Nathaniel Bacon, leader of the militia, asked Governor Berkeley for military protection from these raids. When Governor Berkeley denied them military protection against the attacks, again against the Berkeley's orders Bacon's militia attacked the native Americans. Berkley then had Bacon declared a traitor and was arrested. After Bacon's release, Bacon still angry at Berkeley for how he and the lower class people had been treated, gathered a militia together and marched against Berkeley driving him into hiding, overthrowing the government, and burning Jamestown to the ground. Soon after, Bacon died suddenly of dysentery and Berkeley regained control.

All of Michael Moore's communist propaganda is puerile drivel.

Tales of Frank David Marshal, the Kenyan's real father, and 2016 lift the veil of secrecy and mystery surrounding the Kenyan's birth.

A simple DNA test would prove paternity. Dig em up.

<quoted text> Watch what happens when the boot of socialism is lifted from the neck of the American people. There is a lot of pent up energy out there waiting for the ejection to be over. If Romney wins there will be such an explosion of entrepreneurship that it will be amazing to watch. I know plenty of people who are waiting. On the other hand if Obama wins they will just hunker down for another 4 years and wait. This will mean more businesses closed, more money sitting on the sidelines and more unemployment. This election really is about the future on America.
Pathetic. But at least you agree with what I have been saying for years, rightwingers have been sitting on the sidelines which is why the economy isn't growing at a faster rate. I only wish I had been wrong, but they are a bunch of stubborn jackasses. Any ahole that would sit on the sidelines just to see Obama and the rest of the country fail is a complete scumbag in my eyes.

Pres Obama, CNN memo, Affirmative Action for sitting Presidents, and second debate was rigged...{?}

"On why Obama got more time to speak, it should be noted that Candy and her commission producers tried to keep it even but that Obama went on longer largely because he speaks more slowly. We’re going to do a word count to see whether, as in Denver, Romney actually got more words in even if he talked for a shorter period of time."

it is financially impossible to provide full-coverage medical insurance to minimum wage employees, unless they are a relatively small proportion of total employment....and Obamacare prohibits more limited coverage...
McDonald's, like other fast food operations, will provide medical insurance for full-time management employees....and restrict others to part-time employment....
so Obamacare screws a lot of people.....
Under 28 hours a week which means everybody with a view to the future will have to work 2 1/2 jobs at the least. The reality of unintended consequences is lost on these people.

I don't believe that a person, who wanted to open a business or expand a business would not do so because of who is President. That makes no sense at all, it's absurd rightwing bullshyt talk to pump each other up at whatever the name of that podunk bar is called.

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.
the temperature and time for baking pizza would kill any bacteria...

I wish I couldn't believe you're this stupid...how long did it take us to know ALL about the first 9/11? "Ben Ladin determined to attack inside the US;" no WMD's in Iraq; bin Laden in Pakistan; Cheney's contractors getting people killed for fun and profit. You're pathetic to crow so much nonsense of four dead Americans...hope karma hurries up and comes for you and the Romneys...

haven't heard much more about the WARN act being dismantled for all the job layoffs pending due to the defense cuts.
must be another bit of news that needed to "fade away" because it points to the hypocrisies and failures of the Obama presidency.
You haven't heard about it recently because it wasn't really news in the first place just bullshyte from right wing chicken littles such as the ones who live on this thread.

Lockheed Martin laid off 200 employees and has no current plans for additional layoffs.

200 is a far cry from 11,000 correct? LMAO, not on the topix political threads it isn't.
