You're as full of shit as Carol.
Unions created the Middle Class. Without them, workers pay a steep price.
Hostess is an example of Rmoney style economics. THe Hedge Fund managers rewarded themselves with millions in pay, while th workers were asked to take cut after cut after cut.
At some point, people will refuse to be pushed around by rich fools. Expect to see more of that in the next few years.
hard times have always been the best organizer for unions.
Expect WalMart to have unions in the next few years.
It's the new civil rights movement.
To compare unions to greedy Corporate interests is ignorant, and that's being kind.
Walmart will never be unionized. The low caliper of most of the people that work there, parolees, single mothers with 5 kids, dishonorably discharged military rejects, don't have the basic intelligence to form a union. I once got an oil change there and the technician f'ked it up (he left the filter off). When I complained to the manager he said the technician had a college degree. I said, "A college degree and he's changing oil at Walmart? That raises several red flags." Manager offered me a free oil change next time..yeah, right..like I'm going back there again. Those people are morons, but they do have good prices.

There aren't enough black Republicans the way I see it. The Republican party didn't leave the black community. They left us.
Miss Carol, the only reason Barack Hussein Obama was re-elected was greed, pure unmitigated greed?'Whatcha gonna gimmee? Romney was going to find a way to get Giverment off the back of business, so that they could do business? Until the welfare mentality is shown as what it is, nothing will change.
Although I do agree there aren't enough Black voters who think that way.

At the moment, there’s little indication that Republicans — especially the ones criticizing Romney — have rethought their commitment to the policies offered in this election, few of which speak to the actual concerns of ordinary Americans.

One last thing: Ignoring, for now, the fact that the Affordable Care Act provides benefits for all Americans — and not just African Americans and Latinos — there’s something odd about this line of criticism. Voters elect and support politicians to do things for them. There’s nothing illegitimate about the fact that Obama won by providing tangible benefits to people who needed them. And in fact, if elected president, this was Romney’s plan as well — large tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans, who don’t need them but would like them all the same. That Romney doesn’t see those measures as “gifts” is a sign of how blinded he is by his class.

Nah, I decided to leave my purse right where it is and hang around for the big show.
Reinstating Jerusalem, "God" language met with boos at DNC:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v =kX11IUjkEKsXX
The Associated Press put it this way: Democrats have changed their convention platform to add a mention of God and declare that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel.
They weren't booing God, they were booing making it part of the platform. As in thinking people should make their own decisions about religion. You, The Religious Right and Fox News, on the other hand think you have the whole thing cornered and have the right to shove it down people's throats. More fraudulence and theatrics from the Teavangelicals. How did that work out for ya? As it appears you enjoy Dylan's lyrics, contemplate these.......

"With God On Our Side"

Oh my name it is nothin'
My age it means less
The country I come from
Is called the Midwest
I's taught and brought up there
The laws to abide
And the land that I live in
Has God on its side.

Oh the history books tell it
They tell it so well
The cavalries charged
The Indians fell
The cavalries charged
The Indians died
Oh the country was young
With God on its side.

The Spanish-American
War had its day
And the Civil War too
Was soon laid away
And the names of the heroes
I's made to memorize
With guns on their hands
And God on their side.

The First World War, boys
It came and it went
The reason for fighting
I never did get
But I learned to accept it
Accept it with pride
For you don't count the dead
When God's on your side.

When the Second World War
Came to an end
We forgave the Germans
And then we were friends
Though they murdered six million
In the ovens they fried
The Germans now too
Have God on their side.

I've learned to hate Russians
All through my whole life
If another war comes
It's them we must fight
To hate them and fear them
To run and to hide
And accept it all bravely
With God on my side.

But now we got weapons
Of the chemical dust
If fire them we're forced to
Then fire them we must
One push of the button
And a shot the world wide
And you never ask questions
When God's on your side.

In a many dark hour
I've been thinkin' about this
That Jesus Christ
Was betrayed by a kiss
But I can't think for you
You'll have to decide
Whether Judas Iscariot
Had God on his side.

So now as I'm leavin'
I'm weary as Hell
The confusion I'm feelin'
Ain't no tongue can tell
The words fill my head
And fall to the floor
If God's on our side
He'll stop the next war.

An overwhelming number of the population earning less than $30,000 voted for Obama and more of the same.
Single women overwhelming voted for Obama and more of the same, mainly when it comes to abortion and free birth control.
An overwhelming number of Hispanics and Latinos voted for Obama because of the Dream Act - and more of the same. We failed to get the right message to this group of Americans who statistically share more conserative values than liberal.
We can reach women and Hispanics/Latinos with the right messenger and the right message the next time around.
Unfortunately, that didn' happen this time. Admittedly, Romney inadvertently sent the wrong message more than once. His Mormonism also hurt his getting more votes.
Sadly, we had the wrong messenger in the last two elections. That will change in 2016. Once Obama's tax hikes and Obamcare starts hitting people where it hurts the most, it could change by 2014.
No, I don't think it's a matter of "getting a message" out. I think we've passed the tipping point-- more people are riding in the wagon (liberals ) than are pulling it (conservatives).

And parasites have as much voting power as a producer. So it makes sense: women will vote for somebody that promises to save them $9/month in birth control. Minorities will vote for somebody that promises them more EBT, Welfare, Section 8, etc. etc. etc.

Neither seem to have the ability to think long term. When everybody is sitting on their butts waiting for the gubbermint to tell them what to do, give them their allowance, feed them, who pays for it?

And most alarming about it is how liberals DON'T MIND being parasites. People used to be ashamed to accept charity. Liberals pride themselves in being pathetic. Needy. Entitled.

I've hidden my assets for the next four years. Lord Obama and the parasites are going to have a rough time finding them. I will enjoy a good show.

You think we're blindly patriotic?!? You people worship your Queen and Kate Middleton and the rest of those useless royal assholes. Only ones worth a sh't are princes Harry and William. At least they're serving their country. You guys should revolt and hang the rest of them. Their extravagant taxpayer-funded lifestyle is sucking you guys dry.

Because mocking Dick Morris never gets old ...

Dick Morris is pretending to know shit again.

"As the popular vote counts emerge and we move out from under the shadow of the media spin, we are learning the real reason Romney lost."

Apparently this column supersedes his previous column on why Romney lost. Is it because no one bought that load of bull? Nope, it's because of the media spin! Which he's happy to counter. Just like he countered public polling by claiming he had THE ONE TRUE poll.

He's so credible!

"The mainstream media is pushing the story that a massive turnout among minorities and the young drowned the white male vote as America changes its demography."

Brown people "drowned" white people? He sure knows his audience.

"But the real reason is that the whites who supported Romney didn’t turn out to vote."

Brilliant call, Sherlock. White people supported Romney but they didn't support Romney. Where do I send you a check for more of that?

"Just look at the fact, brought to my attention by National Review and Washington Examiner columnist Byron York, that Obama carried Ohio by 107,000 votes (some are still being counted) and that Romney got about 100,000 fewer votes than McCain!"

I know math is hard, but 107,000 is still a bigger number than 100,000.

"Why was the white vote so low? Why did so many anti-Obama voters stay home? The immediate cause was the total failure of the ORCA system for getting out the vote. This new hi tech gadgetry had never been beta tested and crashed repeatedly on Election Day."

That's what happens when Republicans run shit. It crashes.

"But the failure of the white vote to turn out was also because neither the Romney campaign nor any of the super PACs rebutted Obama’s attacks on the Republican candidate. Unanswered, the attacks transformed Romney’s Bain Capital experience into a nightmare of outsourcing and callous layoffs."

It's impossible to rebut what is true.

"Finally, the storm Sandy had a great deal to do with Obama’s re-election. His presidency may be its most lasting damage to our nation and its inhabitants. One voter in six cited the storm as the key factor in their decision to back Obama according to exit polls, a last minute bump for the president that was not reflected in the polls. Why not? Because there were no polls. The polling firms could not reach the affected areas during the storm. We were all flying blind when Obama and Governor Chris Christie’s display of bi-partisanship garnered votes of the Democratic ticket."

I've rebutted the Sandy thing before, but take a real close look at Dick's argument again—

Obama got a bump that helped him win the election in Ohio, Virginia, Florida, Colorado, Nevada and Wisconsin—but it didn't show up in the polling because pollsters couldn't call Connecticut, New Jersey or New York. He's so smart!

Now yes, Dick Morris is stupid, he's always been stupid, and he'll always be stupid. So why keep mocking him? Well, because it's fun, and because he remains a regular "analyst" on Fox News. And nothing illustrates the vapid uselessness of Fox News as an effective analytical outlet than the fact that they depend on this guy to inform their viewers.
