So typical of Democrats and their misguied policies...

This are a couple of sentences from that Yahoo link you provided.

"Shredding vehicles results in its own environmental nightmare. For each ton of metal produced by a shredding facility, roughly 500 pounds of “shredding residue” is also produced, which includes polyurethane foams, metal oxides, glass and dirt. All totaled, about 4.5 million tons of that residue is already produced on average every year. Where does it go? Right into a landfill."

President Obama is expected to nominate Chuck Hagel, a former Republican senator and Vietnam veteran, to be Defense secretary, officials said.
White House officials said Friday that the president hadn't formally offered the job to Hagel, but others familiar with the process said that the announcement could come as soon as Monday.
Hagel doesn't like people like you, Patrick.

Obama's legacy will be that he was the president that brrowed irresponsible, harmin the viability of a good livng fo all Ameicans. How ironic, because for better or worse, there is a stereotype that blacks and Democrats borrow and do not repay more than any other ethnicity.

Unions are tough on union members, killing jobs at every turn.
Before long, the only unionized "workers" will be government employees.
I doubt that, Unions are strong as ever in the United States. Union members have freedom of choice as to who they vote for. Without Unions minimum wage would be at best 5 bucks an hour.

A pro-lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender group issued a statement today urging President Barack Obama not to nominate Chuck Hagel as secretary of defense.
"GetEQUAL strongly opposes the potential nomination of Chuck Hagel to become the next Secretary of Defense. Hagel has, time and time again, taken every opportunity to lambast and denigrate lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) Americans, and the Cabinet is no place for this kind of disrespect," writes the chair GetEQUAL's board Tanya Domi.
"Hagel's recent apology for his insulting comments about the nomination of James Hormel as U.S. Ambassador to Luxemborg were hollow, politically expedient, and nakedly gratuitous. The Defense Department has made important strides toward creating an inclusive Armed Forces, but has miles left to go -- nominating Hagel to lead the Defense Department would be a staggering step backward for the LGBT community and an upheaval of President Obama's past support for the LGBT community."
"During his years in Congress, Hagel consistently opposed the advancement of civil rights for LGBT Americans. A Hagel nomination would throw President Obama's support for LGBT civil rights into deep suspicion. Following yesterday's signing of an NDAA that includes a new "conscience clause" designed to permit discrimination in the military by chaplains, the LGBT community is looking for leadership at the Defense Department that will remove discriminatory practices from the Armed Forces -- not cement those practices."
You man that Republican group?

By the way, two facer, who's paying for Obama's government that is tanking our country into more and more debt?
Victory?? What a stupid thing to say.

Prove that.

Where was the "Victory in Iraq" Parade?? Y'know, like "Victory over Japan", or VJ day in 1945??

We signed an agreement to leave Iraq without any sort of victory, you useless sockpuppet!!

Bush was humiliated by the Iraqi's, you moonbat!!

Remember he said we'd leave whe the Generals asid it was ok to?? And not a 'Date Certain'??

Well, moonbat, that'e exactly what Bush did. Cave to the Iraqi's and sign an agreement to leave Iraq ON A DATE CERTAIN.

Guess what nitwit, Bush threw his Generals under the bus and signed a surrender treaty with Iraq

----------
""The U.S.–Iraq Status of Forces Agreement (official name: "Agreement Between the United States of America and the Republic of Iraq On the Withdrawal of United States Forces from Iraq and the Organization of Their Activities during Their Temporary Presence in Iraq") was a status of forces agreement (SOFA) between Iraq and the United States, signed by President George W. Bush in 2008. It established that U.S. combat forces would withdraw from Iraqi cities by June 30, 2009, and all U.S. forces will be completely out of Iraq by December 31, 2011.""

With your level of mediocrity, it's no wonder Goober and the rest of your sockpuppet family is so retarded!!

I take it you are not talking about the two Bush wars, the spending & revenue reduction due to the Bush recession, and the Bush expansion to Medicare.

Why does a union need strength? If it's 'membership' your talking about, you're wrong. If it's 'influence on the free market', you're right, but in a negative way. Minimum wage has hurt the jobs market vastly more than help it. Hundreds of thousands of new hires are passed over because the 'minimum wage' is higher than their worth to the company. I've been on the hiring end of this equation, I know the drill.

You lost the election. All your rants are less than meaningless.

You're a loser.

And a very stupid one at that. How many times must I catch you in lame brained statements??

Seems I do it daily. Your math skills are non-existant, and your drug use maked your posts appear ridiculous with your lunaTIC writing style.

Has to be the meth.

BTW, you mentioned Truman as part of the Depression.

Proving what a dunderhead you are once again.

----------

""The major turn-around for the U.S. economy occurred after the bombing of Pearl Harbor and the entrance of the United States into World War II. Once the U.S. was involved in the war, both people and industry became essential to the war effort. Weapons, artillery, ships, and airplanes were needed quickly. Men were trained to become soldiers and the women were kept on the homefront to keep the factories going. Food needed to be grown for both the homefront and to send overseas.

It was ultimately the entrance of the U.S. into World War II that ended the Great Depression in the United States.""

----------

We entered the War in 1941. The depression ended.

Truman took office in 1945, 4 years after the Depression ended.

Glad I could correct your stupidity once again.

(If you don't know what you're talking about, keep your lunaTIC thoughts to yourself and the meth pipe!!)

I don't any more than I support Republicans bankrupting it. Since the Republicans took Congress in '95 year over year spending has increased an average of 8% under Republicans and 7.5% under Democrats so the Democrats are marginally better. What makes Republicans particularly repugnant is that their entire platform is a lie and a delusion. If you believe you're doing the right thing while in reality you're doing the very wrong thing you're going to keep doing it because you've convinced yourself its the right thing.
You act as is both parties had equal issues to deal with. You fake libertarians don't fool anyone.

That's your right to your opinion I have my own opinion of Unions. President Obama saved the American auto industry. Minimum wage should be 10 bucks an hour if you ask me.
