You know if you keep toying with Dave like this, he will blow a head gasket. Then he will scream. If he screams, his parents will hear him from the floor above. If his parents hear a scream they will think that pesky raccoon got back in the house. When raccoons get in the house, they break out the guns and start shooting at anything that moves. So, don't make Dave scream.
Well, Peppy, arsenic is a naturally occurring element in well water.

You're an unemployed guttersnipe. Why don't you go work for the Hedge Fund that runs Hostess??
I'm sure they'd hire nitwits like you, so long as you're willing to work for Twinkies!!
These bakers decided not to allow these corporate raiders to cut their wages and benefits to indentured slave levels. They'll find jobs, the hedge fund will lose big on their investment!!
That's a good outcome, but way over your hillbilly head!!
Laying off 18,000 is a good outcome? What's wrong with you people?

Carol's a very lonely woman. She's said as much, often.
But she stays on Topix and FAUX, instead of getting out and meeting people.
Her insular behavior makes it easy for her to live in a parallel universe. She doesn't allow reality to intrude on her fantasy life.
Since Nov. 6th, that's becom increasingly apparent.
Most all her fellow nitwits have fled the scene, having realized their ignorance. Not Carol. She doubles down on ignorance.
The racists and secessionists are here, the frightened ones with guns in their avatar and secession in their heads.
Secession is the act of a traitor.
Traitors should be shot. But even the Governors of these traitors have laughed at them, including Rick Perry. So they're not going anywhere but crazy.
So, as in 2008, they're merely venting their rage over a black man winning the Presidency twice over their white mutts!!~
I'm a home hermit but not lonely. Because of my work situation. There's a difference.

But I do get bored easily. That's where topix and you come in handy.

The pamphlet itself was edited by Miriam Goderich who has since responded, saying it was her mistake. She replied in an email to Yahoo News:
You’re undoubtedly aware of the brouhaha stirred up by Breitbart about the erroneous statement in a client list Acton & Dystel published in 1991 (for circulation within the publishing industry only) that Barack Obama was born in Kenya. This was nothing more than a fact checking error by me — an agency assistant at the time. There was never any information given to us by Obama in any of his correspondence or other communications suggesting in any way that he was born in Kenya and not Hawaii. I hope you can communicate to your readers that this was a simple mistake and nothing more.
Sigh.
I'm not hysterical and neither are my wingnuts.

Are any of my wingnuts on here hysterical?

Condeleesa Rice went on talk shows & said how Iraq had WMDs. We invaded Iraq. There were no WMDs. Republicans confirm Condi Rice as Sec of State.
Susan Rice said the attacks appeared to be the results of a demonstration against a video that escalated. This has been changed to a planned terrorist attack.. Republicans run screaming through the streets with torches & pitchforks. OMG OMG she can't be Sec of State.
Testimony from the CIA confirms that their talking points changed. That the possible relation with terrorist organizations were scrubbed from their initial memos.
The idea that Republicans didn't give a sh*t that the misinformation Condeleesa Rice provided helped send 4000 soldiers to their death evidently pales in comparison of statements about Benghazi that got no one killed or injured.
Republicans really suck d*ck. How anyone can support this pack of liars & losers is beyond me.
My God, the hypocrisy alone.

Nobody can help you, Carol. Your ignorance is boundless.
But FDR would give Obama more than a run for his money. GM, AT&T, and most other unions came into being during the Great Depression.
The time when Americans realized the wealthy were ripping them off, and willing to let them live and die in poverty so the wealthy can make greater profits.
Not like today, when idiots like yourself support the rich in their exploiting of labor.
Hard times always bring ann increase in union activity. Don't look now, but even WalMart workers are looking to unionize, tired of being pawns with no rights.
You're too stubbornly blind to see that.
Oh, lighten' up. I can't help it if Hitler loved unions too.

May I ask you something?? Do you ever think for yourself??
Will your dividend rate go up?? Are you one of the CEO's who tried mightily to defeat Obama??
You're poor, you likely don't have investments, much less dividend paying stocks,if you have them, they're in hubby's 401K, and you don't pay taxes on income in a 401k.
Why does a poor person like you, maing $15 an hour, part time, care about taxes on wealthy folks??
Why do you ignorantly throw your lot in with rich folks? Hoping to get more cheap stuff they leave on the curb??
You make no sense at all, Carol. You stated you were willing to throw your husband under the bus concerning Medicare so rich people wouldn't have to pay more taxes.
Why are you so self loathing you kneel before the rich and take whatever scraps they throw to you?? Folks like your hero, sex deviate O'Reilly, worth $50 million.
You actively lobby against your own self interests. That's a definition of insanity.
And your daughter voted for Obama, laughing at you behind your back!!
I always think for myself. I always make sense. And I am not self-loathing.

You're just cuckoo if you don't think Obama isn't going to tax the you-know-what out of those making more than 250,000 and raising the dividend taxes won't affect the economy and, thus, all of us.

hostess was/is a terribly run company with rapidly declining sales of it's child poison and, of course, it's Bain style management blames it all on labor...and typically, as the company was sinking:

"four top Hostess executives received raises of up to 80%."

Condi Rice attended university of Denver, got a Masters at Notre Dame & her Doctorate at University of Denver.

Seems top be Susan Rice is smarter & has better educational resume.

Other than towing the Bush line, Condi Rice did a good job.

Susan Rice is smarter & has a better resume & experience.

If your Republicans confirmed Condi, they should confirm Susan. That is unless they are petty, party first twits.

This is what I was trying to remember:

The labor union was the chief tool of the early twentieth century demagogue (Hitler). Modeled after the success of arousing the discontent of the French peasants of the late 18th century, it was the natural place to amalgamate the passions and tensions of workers and lead them into revolt. The basic tenet of both the Russian and German revolutions was labor based social/political revolt (“Workers of the world unite!”). The differences were in style not substance.

Well the DOW was down about 70 when the yahoos on capital hill came out and did their little song and dance about avoiding the cliff. Market shot up to positive to around 37. It will be interesting if it stays up or goes back down after lunch and towards the close. It might stay positive if they keep the loser off the television.

The bakery business is in distress almost everywhere.

The only worthwhile Hostess assets are the brand names.

The biggest Hostess liabilities are the employee contracts and pension plans.

The outcome seems obvious.

Environmentalists are working to reduce the use of non biodegradable bags brought to us from industry - not environmentalists.

Over the lifetime of these CFLs, there is less mercury in them than the mercury saved in their use from emitted coal fired generation plants.

I had truly hoped that the President would have pushed for the public option, open up Medicare for all rather than this complicated bill that was a compromise.
I hope that eventually it will become universal healthcare for all paid through taxation and not attached to employment. It's the simplest and fairest way.
only in your world is forceing one to labor for the needs of another considerd fair. Years ago it was called slavery.
