<quoted text>how many more concessions should a worker have to take to keep their bosses fat and greedy?
as the company was preparing to file for bankruptcy earlier this year, the then CEO of Hostess was awarded a 300 percent raise (from approximately $750,000 to $2,550,000) and at least nine other top executives of the company received massive pay raises. One such executive received a pay increase from $500,000 to $900,000 and another received one taking his salary from $375,000 to $656,256.

There are thousands of patriotic Americans rolling in their graves.

When a Mattress Salesman says "It even comes with free pillows", when Late Night TV Carnival Barkers tell us they'll send us a $500 Blender for only $19.99 and if we call in the next 5 minutes, they'll send us two, when Wimpy says "I'll gladly pay you on Monday for a hamburger today", we all understand.

But when the Jerk-In-Chief talks the same ghetto sh*t, we fall for it? Madison Ave has moved into the Oval Office. Common Sense has moved out of America.

As former CIA Director David Petraeus revealed new discrepancies Friday in the administration's story over Libya, a dozen female House Democrats suggested Republicans' criticism of U.N. ambassador Susan Rice over her Libya comments is instead rooted in sexism and racism.
I wonder what flavor kool-aid they were drinking
They can't fight the opposition on the merits of the Benghazi case so all they have left is the popular Liberal fallback position: charge racism and sexism. That always works.

The difference between Republicans and Democrats:
A Republican and a Democrat were walking down the street when they came to a homeless person. The Democrat gave the homeless person his business card and told him to come to his business for a job. He then took twenty dollars out of his pocket and gave it to the homeless person.
The Republican was very impressed and when they came to another homeless person, he decided to help. He walked over to the homeless person and gave him directions to the welfare office. He then reached into the Democrats pocket and gave the homeless man fifty dollars.
Now you know the difference between Republicans and Democrats.
YOU have got it all backwards there spanky , history proves it .

Not at all am I in favor of outsourcing. Problem is that we are pricing ourselves out due to over priced union wages.

Fire the hostess bakers and train the custodians to bake the Twinkies.

I dont know what they make but I am sure it is way too much, its not rocket science making cup cakes.

I prefer American made products, the problem is you cant find them!

And how in the world they can even deviate to the usual IGNORANT levels of "sexism and racism" wahwahwah, when questioning-

A. Why were special ops forces pulled out just weeks before the terrorist attack, with visible signs of terrorist groups activity (in a KNOWN prior terrorist active region) flapping obviously in the daily winds?
and
B. Why were repeated requests of diplomatic concern ignored and or disregarded so effortlessly in the days prior to?

WTH were we doing in Libya-aiding and abetting failed statehoodism, with out enough assets?

Foreign Policy FAILURE.

Remember Jeebus? First Responder to this entire disgusting thread? Turns out The Republicans set up the whole Fiscal Cliff thingie (Jeebus quoted thusly "they have no one to blame but themselves when taxes skyrocket and the military becomes downsized") and now are trying to wiggle out of their own petard.
The Republicans managed to re-elect this black president. Period.
That is, thanx to their incredibly painful-to-watch missteps and general obstructionist bullshit.
Turns out people DO care, not because they wanted a black president. Period. So what do they care about?
The black president. Period. who got RE-elected as the most viable candidate, running on his own record/performance since 2008. To quote Paul Harvey - "And that's the rest of the story."
Hey Jeebus, how's that Period thing workin' out fer ya?
The GOP knows darn good and well that taxes have to go up regardless of who is in the white house. It also knows very well that the wealthy must pitch in, rather than just pull out, just like those on the bottom rung of the economic ladder must.(Business owners have known this for years also, and the smart ones prepared accordingly.) I believe the President had both of the last elections in the bag, and that you are exactly right: The republicans elected this President - did anyone really believe the GOP EVER intended to preside over the cleanup of Bush's mess? That's what Democrats are for.

Mitt Romney was a patsy, destined, practically GURANTEED to fail, by the GOP.

I knew this 6 months ago. Looks like you've also had your eyes open.
Good for you.

Only in your own mind. Most Republicans records speak for themselves. That's not brainwashing, that's truth. Bush was scary enough, as was McCain, Romney and their ilk.
Okay you are clearly clueless. You said earlier that if elected Mitt would take away your social security and medicare. Bogus brainwashing scare tactics and you bought it hook line and sinker. Did Bush 1 or Bush 2 take away your social security? NO. Did Reagan? NO. Did any one of them even hint at doing it? NO. Bush 2 signed the drug prescription add on to medicare. You are a gullible sap. OOH, watch out, your shadow is right behind you. LOL.
