Feral cats take time to domesticate(if you have patience and tough skin) but it's well worth the effort. It's almost like taming a wild woman.

Unions talk BS about worker job safety, and then promote drinking on the job.
Unions like the UAW are a cancer on the American workplace, defending negligence, incompetence, and defiance of safe work practices.
Not to mention that the buyer of a UAW product gets an expensive car built by a bunch of drunks.
I agree the UAW has protected and Promoted that behavior for years and I know it is especially worse up around the Michigan & Detroit area where they busted those UAW members Chrysler.

Then he destroyed the economy and let thousands die in Katrina.
As an individual, you are harmless sewer flotsam.

But as part of the 13% aggregate of America, your ignorant rage is as dangerous as a hungry Pit Bull let loose in Daycare.

In his address to the UN, Bush warned that the United States was prepared to act militarily against Iraq if Saddam Hussein didn't honor his previous commitments, little one.

I find it amazing how many adults have no knowledge of how our government works, even people on here; so therefore, are these adults capable of teaching a child anything? I may be wrong, but I thought it was mostly religious people who homeschool. Indoctrination, mind control, isolation.
Liberals were all homeschooled in front of a TV. Look at how THAT turned out. Elmo got the Big Bird, Pee Wee Herman was caught doing a MJ(beating it) in a porno theater and PBS declares that it's OK to have 2 mommies and 2 daddies. The rest of the MSM joined in to trash those little minds of mush even frther. Now we have millions of lillies running around shooting their fool mouths off.

Homeschooling is great if it's done by parents and not perverts.

Of course not. You don't know shit from shinola.
Too bad I went back and found the post.

You said <and I quote>: "We went to War with Hitler to defend our allies and ourselves."

Do black kids learn white history?
Ask them. Most don't learn much of anything except how to sign basketball contracts, do drugs, make babies, get on the public dole, become a rap star to berate and beat up women and vote for free cellphones...

What black kids desperately need to learn first before anything else is the history of how academia has screwed them over for the last 60 Liberal decades. But this would cause uncontrollable rage so the Liberal status quo continues undisturbed....

The Black community needs a million Bill Cosby's but, even more importantly, they need to LISTEN to a million Bill Cosby's and not the ghetto pimps in three-piece suits out there.

...and, of course, the lying trash lilly's out there.

Washington Post to pay dividend early
Warren Buffett to profit by evading Obama tax hike
WASHINGTON (AP)-- The Washington Post Co. will pay its 2013 dividends before the end of this year to try to spare investors, including Warren Buffett, from anticipated Obama tax increases. hen asked about this seeming contradiction, Buffett replied that taxing the wealthy did not apply to billionaire friends of Obama.
This action comes as the Post is laying off employees due to declining advertising sales.
The media and education company said Friday that its dividend of $9.80 per share is payable Dec. 27 to shareholders of record as of Dec. 17. The payout is instead of regular quarterly dividends next year.
Washington Post is the latest company to move up its quarterly payout or issue a special end-of-year payment to protect investors from potentially having to pay higher taxes on dividend income starting in January.
Since 2003 investors have paid a maximum 15 percent on dividend income. But that historically low rate will expire in January unless Congress and President Barack Obama reach a compromise on taxes and government spending. As it stands, dividends will be taxed as ordinary income in 2013, the same as wages, so rates will go up depending on which income bracket a taxpayer is in. For the highest earners, the dividend rate would jump to 43.4 percent.
The Washington Post's dividend payment also stands to benefit those with a significant stake in the company, such as Warren Buffett's firm Berkshire Hathaway. Berkshire is its largest shareholder with an estimated 1.7 million shares, which means it could get a roughly $17 million dividend payment.
Washington Post shares rose $4.83 to close at $372.14.
The Boy Messiah's plan to get those evil rich people is pure Hollywood and plays well before the cameras to his Free Cellphone Crowd. Off camera, he's in bed with every dollar waving John on the street.

Someone made a comment earlier today that consumer spending was up - as an argument that things are getting better - and then called me a moron or something.

MSNBC (today)- US consumer borrowing rises to a record high. Increases in debt for credit card purchases, school expenses and car purchases drove U.S. consumer debt to an all-time high in October.

The Federal Reserve said Friday that consumers increased their borrowing by $14.2 billion in October from September. Total borrowing rose to a record $2.75 trillion.

...Funny how liberals think spending is a good thing if it means borrwing a record amount of money. It's so liberal of them.

NEW YORK - Americans' outlook on the economy and their finances took a turn for the worse in early December due likely to anxiety about the potential for higher taxes resulting from contentious discussions in Washington over fiscal issues, a survey released on Friday showed.

Such hypocrites! Some of these same people voted for Obama knowing full well he would raise taxes - and will still blame republicans.
