That reference has no documentation as to the ability to sue. The scary thing is that the cow from Maryland wants to prohibit companies from firing employees for discussing salaries.

You're correct about the fat, but there is still a lack of growth in the economy that is causing sustained high unemployment.
Accepting 7.9% unemployment is unacceptable.
Why? In a lot of countries that would be considered low.

Dufus, you only included one reference from Congress.
New York Times... isn't that the publication that got busted multiple times for publishing fraudulent articles?
whitehouse.gov ... give me a break here. There isn't any credibility there.
It will be easy to reference the Congressional Record to see what Obama delivered to Congress.
And, you forgot to include the breakout of the votes for Obama's budgets.
How about you give to us the vote totals for each of the budgets Obama submitted to Congress.
... got a problem there, don't you?
That's because Obama submitted only two budgets to Congress, and the sum total of votes for each and all of the two budgets Obama submitted of the four he was supposed to submit was ZERO. That's NONE, NADA, ZILCH.
Now, give us the vote totals for those other two budgets that there seems to be no reference to in the Congressional Record.
http://thomas.loc.gov/home/thomas.php
http://www.senate.gov/pagelayout/legislative/...
And, when will the budget Obama referenced last week be delivered to Congress?
And, where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?
You said Obama only submitted 2 budgets.

I proved you were wrong.

I provided the first links I found that referenced an Obama submitted budget. Feel free to prove any year to be incorrect.

What votes were received & what votes are taken is irrelevant. The President only submits the budget to the chambers. He does not put them up for vote - I thought a "constitutionalist" would know this sh*t.

Obama submitted every budget he wad supposed to.

I don't expect you to admit you were wrong,. just like I didn't expect you to quit repeating this lie that I proved you wrong before.

Hate all you want my misguided caucasian imbecile. The fact still remains Michelle Obama is the best looking, f ck it! The Obama family is the best looking 1st family in Americas history by far. Its damn near a 360 from Americas norm. The Bush's, the Nixons, the Reagans, even the Clintons tho not so much, infact lets exclude them, but the rest of them. All old, false teeth, anorexic ,no ass, damn near white as the color. Not attractive in the least. Their children even even came out looking like an example of who not do. True definition of a poster child for abortion!

Students who over paid for useless degrees should be learning to say "Do you want fries with that?" in Spanish instead of lying around mom's basement complaining about being called "fat".

Who is a murderer?
Ray Lewis, so they say.

'Lewis gained notoriety for his involvement in a January 2000 fight that resulted in an indictment on murder and aggravated-assault charges. In a plea agreement he pled guilty to obstruction of justice in exchange for testimony against two other defendants.'

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ray_Lewis

He's black so it's probably assumed by rightwingers/tea baggers that he is guilty of murder.

It's right up there with his stupidity concerning Adam Lanza using a handgun to kill 26.

Note how he lies, yet never corrects himself nor admit to the lie??

All the wingnuts do that.

It's what losing 2 elections to a black man will do to a racist person.

So it's a free country, yet your employer should be allowed to fire you for nothing??

You have a weird idea of what freedom means.

There was a lot of underemployment under Bush, it just went unreported. Of course when Obama became president it was all Fox and rightwingers could talk about.
