How do you deal with political policy that conflicts with your religeous morals?
I don't let it conflict because I don't practice any religion. I believe in honesty, compassion and fairness for all human beings.

Tell us once more about all the jobs that will trickle down if we just give the rich more tax breaks. That one is my Fav.
If the Republicans were interested solely in political gain instead of the welfare of the country, they would agree to everything that Obama wants and allow the inevitable crash of the economy.

Tax more, spend more always works out the same.

Your ODD won't allow you to admit that a MAJORITY of American voters chose Obama.
The nitwits and racists voted for the loser.
Making you as big a loser as Rmoney!!
It's that simple, though your ODD prevents you from seeing reality.
How'd that Second Amendment nonsense work out for you Teabaggers??
Where are the Teabaggers?? They were the BIGGEST LOSERS, they got routed!!
with every post you write you show even more ignorance. The only thing obamas win proves is that there were more simple minded folk like you who are easy to lead and decive that voted .you willingly voted for a man that gives aid to terrorist,a man who has lied to you over and over and a man who will be the downfall of America. The realy sad part of it is that you have no clue and only do as you are lead to do. Its actualy very sad that you've come to point where you can't even discuss an issue without showing your extreme hatered for anyone that disagrees with what you have been told to believe,exibiting your hate as far as makeing jokes about someones dead daughter.only a sick mind could do that.

The Chinese are in a bind. Their air pollution is off the charts due to coal usage, there are riots wherever a coal plant is proposed. Chinese are leaving China to escape the pollution problem.
As if the Communist Chinese party cares about what the Chinese people think.

So are you perfectly fine with abortion? Would you personally have an abortion because your job is too time consuming right now to deal with a child?

Obama's Favorability Jumps After Election Win

A new Gallup poll finds President Obama's favorable rating at 58%, his best in over three years.....

Meanwhile, The Week notes losing "is never a great way to increase your popularity.

But to an unusually vocal degree, Republicans are going out of their way to show Romney the door."

http://theweek.com/article/index/236522/why-r...

Lol,,,Why should republicans be any different. Most of the country went out of their way to show Romney the door.

Some company will make Twinkies, whether with the current personnel and facilities or not.
Your statement that buyers are lining up for the bakeries assumes that existing baking companies are short on production capacity, probably unlikely.
More likely they will just buy some of the machinery.
A Mexican Company has been trying to purchase parts of the firm for years__and in certain areas a supply problem will create a buyer.

Kinda like when the candy business left Reading PA for greener pastures__shyt happens pal__one door closes another one opens__now you've got muchroons and financial centers.

You'd probably rather have the candy companies back wouldn't you?

Romney-Style Economics Behind Decline of Hostess, But Workers Are Paying the Price
Hostess Brands is one of the most recognizable food companies in America, having manufactured Wonder Bread and Twinkies for decades. But now the company has announced they are liquidating, and company is unfairly blaming their workers, many of them members of BCTGM and the Teamsters.
The fact is that the responsibility lies with Hostess’ management and the vulture Wall Street private equity firm behind them, and yet the workers are the ones who will suffer the consequences of this shutdown.
Here are some facts about the Hostess situation:
Hostess is in bankruptcy for the second time since 2009.
For the past 8 years, Hostess has been owned by Wall Street investors: so-called “restructuring experts,” managers from other non-baking food companies, and now a “liquidation specialist.”
The Wall Street investors that own Hostess have no interest in the company succeeding – very similar to the situation of Bain Capital and KB Toys in 2000.
Hostess has had six CEO’s in 8 years, none of whom had any experience in the bread or cake baking industry. This, not any action by the unionized workers, led to their failure.
Hostess workers made numerous concessions, including this year when the company stopped making contributions to their pensions. They went on strike because management offered a contract cutting wages and benefits by 27-32 percent.
Despite their troubles, Hostess’ CEO got a 300 percent raise, from $750,000 to $2,250,000. Other top executives have also gotten raises worth hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Earlier this week when workers at 20 plants went on strike, Hostess management claimed they would close plants in response. In fact, they already had plans to close at least nine plants as part of a company-wide reorganization. They Mayor of St. Louis said of the closings “I was told months ago…”

Investing in companies like McDonalds just like Romney Promised will increase the salary and job opportunities for young people, unlike Obama, who is snatching away economically unprepared young peoples money.
