Barack Obama, our next President

If the work ethics of many 'legal' citizens rose to the level of many 'illegal' ones, we would be well on our way to climbing out of this mess. Frankly, it seems to me that many of our 'neighbors to the south' contribute far more to local economies than many of us are willing to give them credit for. I abhor the idea of giving away 'free' stuff to illegal residents too, but I'm not wild about giving it to loafers and the shiftless either, even if they were born here. How often do you see able-bodied white folks picking up highway trash? It's usually someone of a somewhat darker persuasion - but the welfare rolls are stuffed with white folks, overwhelmingly. Look it up.

Enough of that, however. As I told 'carol' earlier, I don't think the blame game is working. Time to get busy cleaning up the mess we've all had a part in making. A path to citizenship for the 'undocumented', which involves working and contributing, rather than mooching and lolling, gets my vote.

And it's Sister. Just as I've spelled it since I arrived.
Thanks for asking.

The American people should support local businesses who actually pay taxes in your community. Walmart gets to keep the sales taxes, doesn't pay corporate income tax, or property tax, gets a free building and roads, and, the government provides its employees with free healthcare. Wake up dummy
Maybe down there in Florida. Up here they not only pay all the taxes but the businesses surrounding them are thriving as well. There is twenty stores within 50 miles of here with a couple more planned. Wherever they build whole new business districts surround them. I spend my money where I can get the most for the least. Why would anyone pay $2.50 for a dozen eggs when you can buy them for $1.89. Same eggs. Foolish people and their money are soon parted is not just a saying.

Walmart employs the poor and provides low-cost merchandise to the poor. It is certainly appropriate that you would choose to drive Walmart out of business to benefit the wealthy owners of high-cost local businesses that rarely employ minorities.

Gov. Rick Scott and United Technologies Chief Executive Louis Chênevert are scheduled to announce a project this afternoon that will create high-paying jobs at Pratt & Whitney’s campus west of Jupiter.

Officials haven’t released details of the new hiring, but Palm Beach County commissioners last month approved a $1 million package for Pratt & Whitney, the engine maker that’s a division of United Technologies (NYSE: UTX) of Hartford, Conn.

In exchange for $700,000 in county tax exemptions over seven years and $300,000 in job growth incentive grants over four years, Pratt & Whitney would add 230 workers in the next decade. The jobs will pay an average salary of $81,110.

In addition to the county incentives, the state has offered Pratt & Whitney $3.4 million, county officials said last month. Pratt would invest $63 million to renovate a 90,000-square-foot facility and to build a new facility of 80,000 to 100,000 square feet of new space
Pratt & Whitney has been a staple of Palm Beach County’s aerospace industry since 1958, when it set up a testing facility on 6,800 acres along the Beeline Highway west of Jupiter. But Pratt & Whitney has laid off or transferred thousands of workers in recent years. In 1999, the company had 4,700 workers here, a number that has dwindled to about 500 now.

Your party committed suicide. I have boycotted Walmart for years and intend to do so for life. I buy produce from local growers and the rest from Costco, a progressive company that cares about its employees.
Walmart collects sales tax from the poor and keeps it. The local business pays it or goes to jail. Tell me that's fair game?

NO MORE TWINKIES!!!!!

EMPORIA, Kan.)—

Hostess Brands CEO said Wednesday the company will liquidate unless striking workers return to the job by the end of the day on Thursday.

"We simply do not have the financial resources to survive an ongoing national strike," Greg Rayburn said in a statement.

Workers are protesting a contract imposed by a bankruptcy court. The bakers union has called the contract "outrageous."

A liquidation would result in more than 18,000 workers losing their jobs.

Over the weekend, workers in the Bakery, Confectionary, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers International Union, or BCTGM, went on strike at Hostess-owned plants in several states. The strike includes workers at the Dolly Madison plant in Emporia.

Hostess filed for bankruptcy in January, the second time it has done so since 2004.

Republicans have two choices.
Accept letting the tax cuts on the wealthy expire or let the country slide back into a recession.
And after they are blamed for the latter... 2016 will be another democratic landslide.
The radical left are the ones who want to drive over the fiscal cliff. Letting all tax cuts expire and gutting military spending is clearly their objective. So the left has no reason to compromise.

The Many Weaknesses of the Republican Party

....As long as the GOP is seen as working in the interests of corporations and concentrated wealth, and as long as it promotes an economic agenda that includes little or nothing relevant for most working- and middle-class Americans, any other changes it makes will most likely be in vain.

Jindal’s rebuke to Romney is fine as far as it goes, but notice what he says in his response. Jindal said:

One, we are fighting for 100 percent of the votes, and secondly, our policies benefit every American who wants to pursue the American dream, period. No exceptions.

Jindal is obviously a much less tone-deaf politician than Romney, but he is simply asserting that “our policies benefit every American who wants to pursue the American dream.” This could depend on what Jindal means by “our policies,” but if he’s talking about what the national GOP has done when it was in power in the last decade and what it proposes to do in the future it doesn’t appear to be true. Asserting that Republican policies benefit everyone doesn’t make the GOP more appealing. When it appears that these policies don’t even seem to benefit large numbers of the GOP’s reliable voters, telling people that they benefit from policies that do little or nothing for them isn’t the way to gain their trust or support. Not recognizing this is the root of the party’s weaknesses with voters.
