Why GM and Chrysler RAN to Mexico...
"GM workers in Mexico earn wages and benefits of 340 pesos a day ($26.40) on average, or less than $4 an hour, said Tereso Medina, head of the union for GM’s 5,000 workers in Saltillo, a city that makes one in four Mexican autos."

A person in Mexico can live very comfortabley on $26.40 a day. They have a different economy. Americans could live comfortabley on that before George Bush destroyed the economy.

The Fast & Furious project was a matter of national security whose details need not be made public.

President Obama's re-election was the gratest thing that happened to America in the past 50 years.

Middle class tax increases on the way.
Middle class Americans can afford to pay a little more in taxes. Nobody needs $250,000 a year to live. Much of it could be used to improve America's infrastructure and health care and to clean up America's air and water.

<quoted text>Nope.
Not gonna happen.
Neither one.
Why would you champion either of these things?
Because it's been proven time and time again that in countries where guns are banned violent crimes are far less frequently. If the President is doing a good job such as President Obama is why should he be limited to two terms? If your mother is doing a good job raising you, should she be replaced after 8 years?

But you're wrong. The Supreme Court threw out the mandate. Obamacare is now just another tax.
A tax Obama and Pelosi swore up and down it wasn't.
President Obama's Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act assures that all Americans have access to quality health care, not just the privileged few.

Just be grateful you are not a rich French national earning over one million euro$ a year. They will be taxed 75% for everything over that with new French socialist government.

I'd love to see how the tea people would handle that. lol

<quoted text>has to do with economics. I can tell you right now, A guy I went to high school with is making more than they ever did working in a UAW Union Shop and within the first year after they closed the UAW union shop he was making 50% more in pay and Benefits and the UAW didnt do nothing for them, UAW was just interested in union dues and that is all they care about and trust me I have been in many union shops and same BS goes on the union only looking out for their financial position.
Wait until he gets his hands cut off because safety standards went down. Among other things, unions assure safety in the workplaces and equal pay for equal work.

"silly"
The pee must be running down your leg. Two of your fondest desires put forth by "nobama 2012";
- All private ownership of guns banned by 2016
- Repeal of the 22nd. amendment, so president nobama will have the ability to be president as long as he desires.
Your dreams answered.
Peace
Nobody needs deadly guns. It's not just my dream. It's a majority of American's dreams. President Obama's recent landslide victory proves that. And our President could easily be elected to a third term.

"Jaw-dropping lie alert: Obama tells workers right-to-work laws “take away your rights to bargain for better wages,” in reality it stops workers from being forced to join a union as a condition of employment. Nothing in those laws relates to collective bargaining. So he’s either grossly misinformed or lying his ass off."
Unions keep giant corporations like Walmart and Mcdonlds from forcing there employees from working long hours for slave wages and no benefits while their CEOs rake in obscene bonuses.

"John Galt"
Last year two thugs broke into an elderly mans home and threatened he and his wife. He was prepared, he shot them both, killed one, wounded the other. No charges were filed.

You don't know the whole story. Who said they were thugs? Two young men are dead and their children are fatherless because of America's addiction to deadly firearms.

It's not the government's business what a person does in their private time. Typical republican, wanting to control what people do in there own home.

Thank You.
