Read the book.
Walmart went to Rubbermaid & demanded a much lower price. Rubbermaid said no. Walmart started importing inferior products causing Rubbermaid to close the factory.
But hey, you keep blaming unions. Tp you, it can't be greedy ass CEO's looking to pad the bottomline at the expense of their countrymen.
People like you say that it is OK for Walmart to do this.
"real dumb"
You would like a country where a buyer can not say no? He/she is required to buy products that a price that is not meet their needs? Both companies made a decision, they could not come to an agreement. That's the American way.

Now you have irritated my wife. On occasion she bakes bread, white bread, and you compare it to a twinkie? Of course you probably consider her a twinkie, stayed at home to raise to daughters, ferries her grand kids around, volunteers to deliver meals on wheels, goes to Mass every Sunday and sometimes in between, teaches a Sunday School class, doesn't smoke, enjoys a glass of wine with dinner, loves to dance, would not vote for our current president nobama if her life depended upon it, enjoys a screwdriver when we are out, is in charge of coffee and donuts after Mass, voted against gay marriage in our state, voted for the legalization of pot in our state, voted for charter schools, one of her best friends is gay and in her spare time sells about 60 - 70 thousand dollars worth of Avon.
She's 5' tall and about 110 lbs and fits your description perfectly as a grumpy, over weight, lazy republican.

Your wife sounds like a very nice lady.

<quoted text>Headline: Obama outsmarts Republicans for Second Time.
Obama said it was easy. Repubs are stupid.
Let's dissect your statements. Republicans voted for Romney so Obama did not fool them at all. Your presumption is that the stupid people got Obama elected, which I am sure is true. Obama duped the lazy ignorant demographic of the population that he will give them free stuff and he did a great job. Your right, he outsmarted the people that voted for him.

That's your only job, and you better get busy if you want to keep it, slvt. There's lots of young russian and chinee girls advertised in the sidebars of topix who'd love to take up the slack, so to speak ...
You have a very active imagination. Have you considered the self-help lecture circuit? I'm sure your brand of 'tough love' would go over well on a national level - especially in the current political climate. You could give Ann Coulter a real run for her money.

Just a thought.

Hey Eed, how are you?

Your wife sounds like a pillar of salt upon which this country once achieved greatness, the good old days. Liberals see hard work, duty to god, and a moral lifestyle as foolish.

Plus an Avon lady, are you taking a bubble bath right now?

The problem that I see with you and many other rightwingers is that you think everything is political.
I hope that Citizens United gets overturned and true campaign finance reform can one day be a reality; although it probably never will. The fact that John Kerry had to try to portray himself as a hunter to pander to the NRA, and Mitt Romney saying he hunts small varmints, etc. is pathetic. Why not just come out and say "I do not hunt or kill animals, period."?
Killing domestic animals like dogs and cats or horses affects most people who have pets; it's not the same as hunting wild animals, even though I am against that as well.
I would not say John Kerry is a non compassionate man; he's a little dry and dull, but I would not say he is uncaring. He did speak out against the war afterall.
You imply that liberals do not believe in lifelong committed relationships; well that's a lie and you know it. Why lie?
"silly"
John Kerry did speak about the war? Was that before or after he voted to okay it?

No, the so called stupid people you're referring to, outsmarted Romney. I'm sure Mitt thought after his first debate, it was a sure thing. It wasn't difficult for Obama voters to figure out whose side Mitt was really on.

Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. The Lord's prayer.

Denny's is adding a 5% surcharge to every meal to cover the cost of Obamacare. The CEO suggests customers simply deduct it from the server's tip, since that's who's getting the benefits from Obamacare anyway. Other restaurants are expected to follow suit. But I thought the whole real purpose of Obamacare was to "punish the rich".

"Liberals see hard work, duty to god, and a moral lifestyle as foolish."

That's not true of any liberals I know. My parents were hard working people and we went to church every Sunday. My dad was a church deacon and my older brother and I were in the children's choir for years. My fondest memories of our church was Christmas Eve - Candlelight services. My dad was strict and we were far from being spoiled. We had to earn a small allowance by doing chores. My brother and I learned to be grateful for having a roof over our heads and food on the table. My relatives are pretty much the same kind of family.
