Barack Obama, our next President

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

Officials havenít released details of the new hiring, but Palm Beach County commissioners last month approved a $1 million package for Pratt & Whitney, the engine maker thatís 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 Countyís 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.

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.
John Galt loves to watch you commit suicide.
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.)ó

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.

Jindalís 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 ďour policies benefit every American who wants to pursue the American dream.Ē This could depend on what Jindal means by ďour policies,Ē but if heís 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 doesnít appear to be true. Asserting that Republican policies benefit everyone doesnít make the GOP more appealing. When it appears that these policies donít even seem to benefit large numbers of the GOPís reliable voters, telling people that they benefit from policies that do little or nothing for them isnít the way to gain their trust or support. Not recognizing this is the root of the partyís weaknesses with voters.

More phony sob stories. I worked up to hundred hours a week with no pay and no thanks during medical school. Often taking care if lazy posh's that lie in their bed telling me "I'm rich" with NO CLUE what it takes. We used to get by with noodles and cheap beans and had to be wary every week. I had it with the welfare thugs after that time. Then a residency where my total time put in with salary was close to minimal wage for 3 years. Hispanics are not more"hard-working" than others. They have destroyed our ER's and continue to. The EMTALA has become a nightmare that bankrupts the bottom lines of ER's yet you liberals think all we do there is collect money and rip people off.

Stop painting mexicans as such mother Theresa's. what about all hard-working people who happen to qualify into your skin color niche, yet gets nothing?? Finally, look at how they treat THEIR OWN immigrants. You liberals were better served pointing out hippocrisy like this, but instead has chosen to drive all the "victims" in front of you to demonize and destroy everybody else. It's weird to be working for free for people until AUGUST or so when one gets to keep something yet you liberals want more, citing 90% rate in the past as a good example. There is no way I will be doing much more of this once my tax rate goes beyond 50.

<quoted text>Mexicans aren't whiners - they come here to work, and then they ACTUALLY WORK. Plus, most of them live within their means, even if it means eating beans and tortillas 6 days a week for months, pooling the money from 12 incomes to purchase a house 6 families will live in, and paying cash for a truck they all take turns driving. When was the last time you were willing to strive like this?
And 'Americans' is capitalized.
