Some will think you're being sarcastic but this was actually on the ballot in LA.

Just another reminder of the politically correct insanity.

A typical pragmatic and "no nonsense" Tea Party reply. Why do I doubt that you are actually an independent? You support people being fired as a political statement, toying with the lives of the ones who make the CEO his bonuses - that isn't capitalism, it's fiefdom.
Sorry to disappoint your doubt, but I've actually walked the walked, not just driveled the talk.
And No, I don't support ANY such ignorance. I just live in the real world (which btw, in my opinion, does contain alt of bawrneys fiefDUHMS these days, just look around at all the deviance from anything even resembling anything containing some actual REAL ethics. But hey, that's reality these days.

Tell us your story about being a surgeon again. Your candidate West still hasn't given up yet?
You on the right continually equate being liberal with being a taker, that's just completely false. We believe in human and civil rights for all Americans, and womens rights to their own bodies, and equal pay for women, and child labor laws, and the epa, to protect our fields and streams, and banking regulations to protect the people from getting shafted by the banks,and public eduation.
All of the above is threatened by the repubican party.
It's about protecting the rights of the American people.
Proficiency in reading comprehension, as is so evident with you people, is not high up on the bucket list, unlike getting free gas, rent, food, drugs, anything that other people will be forced to pay for... Surgeon??? Go back and re--re-read my post, and oh, it is OK to move your mouth,sound out the words and use a dictionary for those pesky big words, toots.

Excerpt-
"The American people have made their choice," Murray, a day after the election, told about 50 employees during a prayer, a text of which was provided to the AP by the company. Lamenting the country's direction and insisting "the takers outvoted the producers," Murray asked for God's forgiveness "for the decisions that we are now forced to make to preserve the very existence of any of the enterprises that you have helped us build."
Murray's statement Friday, which insisted that the coal industry "is being destroyed," said U.S. coal production this year could plunge by hundreds of millions of tons, and that the Obama administration's energy policies will lead to the closure of scores of U.S. coal-fired power plants by 2014.
The Environmental Protection Agency has proposed tighter limits on mercury, sulfur dioxide and other pollutants that would make it more expensive for utilities to burn coal, a major source of those emissions. The EPA has also proposed limiting the amount of carbon dioxide that new power plants can emit.
Neither would specifically bar coal-fired power plants, but experts say it would be nearly impossible to build an affordable new coal plant that could meet the limits. The proposals, some which had begun under George W. Bush's administration, wouldn't affect coal plants now in use or being built.
Obama, who during his 2008 campaign said builders of new coal-powered plants will go bankrupt from emissions standards he would enact, now espouses an "all of the above" energy strategy that includes coal.

Isn't he the "never let a good crisis go to waste" president?

What's most astonishing - and alarming - is how tunnel-visioned we've become as a nation.

His Mormonism was definitely a factor in a lot of republicans and conservatives not voting.

But you've got it all wrong. Obama won. You won. No problem, along the lines of: if you can't beat'em, join em. I asked my wife to finish out this year to reduce our annual income so that we're in a lower bracket. I am also checking with my accountant and portfolio advisor to see what changes are necessary to show fewer assets and stay under the radar. My brother-in-law already told me that if Romney had won, he'd be able to hire more people for his company. Now, he will stay below ObamaCare.

Life is good.

Now, we just get to sit back and enjoy the show.

Romney is a wealthy successful guy and overall good guy. If he had been a Democrat, his wealth and his religion would not have mattered. Like many other super rich, he can probably life the rest of his life on a private island somewhere and not have a care in the world. And, at least he won't have that haggard post-president look that Obama already has. Although, I think with no campaigning, Obama will now be able to slow the pace.

There is plenty of evidence that ethics is in short supply in both business and Washington. There isn't ANY reason people should get free handouts just because they don't want to work, that's a no-brainer. It's also a no-brainer that it was top end lack of ethics that caused the economy to tank. At the same time, how is firing people who DO want to work supportive of the notion that corporations are AT ALL interested in building the economy?(It seems more likely that reducing labor costs is going to get that CEO his bonus at the fiscal quarter.) Isn't 47% more than enough? Nevada has 11.8% unemployment - isn't THAT enough?

carol: 1955 the time I love. Abortion illegal. No Medicare. No social security. Everyone in church and working. Blissful times. America building interstates, dams, schools, housing.....affordable for all. Most people covered on med plan at job. No gov national debt. Bliss!

Hey carol: 1955: top earners "happily" paid a fed tax rate of 60%. After all deductions.

Republicans have wittled that down to Mitt's current 13.9%!

And still you cry for more tax cuts!

National Debt went from zero to $16 trillion during this right wing experiment.

Wealth went up in the richest......down for everyone else.

These are facts: something you refuse to comprehend.

Right wing policies have created an unhealthy economy.

THAT'S WHY WE FIXED IT! OBAMA WINS AGAIN.

You know, Lily, to everything there is a season and a time for every purpose under heaven.
The unions had a purpose at one time, but that time has come and gone. They are now the spoiled children of the democrat party.
The unions are pressing for card check again.

Card Check, known as the Employee Free Choice Act, would strip away rights from workers at companies where unions want to organize. Unions would be instantly recognized once a majority of employees sign authorization cards, and workers would be forced to sign those cards in public in front of union organizers and co-workers who may favor forming a union.

This would allow unions to intimidate workers into signing union cards. Union organizers would even be able to go to the homes of the workers to bully, threaten, and intimidate them into signing union membership cards.

Big Labor wanted Obama to pass Card Check legislation during his first term, but strong opposition from Democrats and Republicans prevented it from happening.

Some "free choice," LOL!

Let's all join unions, shall we?
