Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Full Story

The Difference between a Conservative and a Liberal

When a Republican like Dave Thomas, founder of Wendy's, was earning minimum wages instead of bitching and complaining as ALL (I mean every single one) Liberals do, he opened his OWN restaurant!!!

He did not group into a union, he did not demanded higher pay, more vacations and more benefits. He did not asked the government to step in. He did not call the press or formed a picked line!!!

He just opened his OWN restaurant!!!

The only way West Virginia could satisfy the Constitutional requirement is if the Virginia state legislature voted to allow them to become a state -

Article 4 Section 3 -

'...without the Consent of the Legislatures of the States concerned...'

Hmm. Karl Rove's efforts to have slightly fewer crackpots in his party do not yet seem to be having any effect. Current crackpot Georgia Rep. Paul Broun has decided to run for Senate, in fact, under the ardent belief that being a crackpot is a much-sought political skill. His latest fundraising letter is a piece of work:

You see, President Obama and Democrat Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid control the Senate with an iron fist.

[T]hey have repeatedly used it to ram their agenda down the throats of the American people, running roughshod over the Constitution and your freedoms.[…]

I was the first Member of Congress to call him a socialist who embraces Marxist-Leninist policies like government control of health care and redistribution of wealth.[…]

Just about every week, my friends and closest allies congratulate me and genuinely thank me for telling the truth of just how messed up this country has become under President Obama.

In addition to his observation that government is positively riddled with Marxist-Leninist policies, he also boasts of his close ties to the now-booted Allen West and the self-booted Jim DeMint. I think most objectionable, however, is his inability to craft any paragraph longer than one sentence. It's like a very angry children's book. It's like crackpot haiku. Damn it, Georgia, teach your legislators how to write—even crazy voters deserve better than this.

<quoted text>Virginia was never recognized by the U.S. government as having 'left' the union. Seems to me we fought a war to preserve the union and all the states therein. So there goes that argument.
Exactly. Therefore, the state government of the half of Virginia that left the union was never recognized by the federal republic. The state government of the half of Virginia that remained in the federal republic was recognized as the legitimate representation of the state of Virginia. And, that legitimate representation of the state of Virginia petitioned the federal republic to be a separate state in accordance with the requirements written in the Constitution.
Or, the state government that left the federal republic was still recognized as the legitimate representation of the state of Virginia.
The question now is, was the rebel government of the state of Virginia the legitimate representation in the federal republic, or was the loyal government of the state of Virginia that didn't rebel against the federal republic the legitimate representation of the state of Virginia?
If the loyal government that didn't rebel against the federal republic is the legitimate representation of the state of Virginia, then all requirements of the Constitution were satisfied.

I don't get all the excitement.

If you look at an older plotter where a stylus deposited ink in two dimensions based on computer controls. Add height & have your stylus deposit a composite material instead of ink.

You have to have a program for every part perhaps generated by a cad system.

I can see the use in industry to produce parts that do not have huge quantity demands as I would think injection molding would be cheaper.

As for home use, other than perhaps for an artist or a craft application, I don't see it.

Its like a potter's wheel, unless you love to do it or sell your pieces at the local festivals, there are only so many pots & vases you need.

No it formed a new state called West Virginia which was not allowed by the Consitution, note the name 'West', if it were still the same state why the name change?

Tuesday night Obama was targeting the Low IQ voter!! Obama promised,“Let me repeat--nothing I’m proposing tonight should increase our deficit by a single dime.” Let’s not forget Obama’s nominee for Secretary of Treasury’ Lew’ made a similar promise as the president’s budget director when he told Congress the budget "would not add to the debt of the United States!!

Now the Facts, Five of the things Obama propose on Tues will cost the Taxpayers over 1 trillion dollars adding to the deficits and of course Lew was wrong… the US debt is over 16 trillion and counting!!

Post that goddam time line.
Don't forget to put in all caps the demonstration Obama lied about for two weeks that never happened.
It was obvious the Al Qaeda team assigned to intercept the relief force repositioned and initiated the assault on the security compound after the security team was not allowed to respond to the attempt to kidnap Stevens, which ultimately killed Stevens.
Post the goddam time line.
And, answer the question...
Where was Obama during the 7-hour battle between Al Qaeda and the stripped-down American security detatchment in Benghazi while the White House watched Al Qaeda kill Americans on the live video feed?
And;
Why did Obama lie for two weeks covering up the Al Qaeda attack on the United States?
Post that time line you talk about so much.
I have posted that timeline numerous times in the past to the same basic post you made.

If you were too GD f*cking stupid to read it then, you are likely still too GD stupid to read it now.

Everyone who begins as a trainee gets a minimum wage. If someone is still relying on minimum wage after being in the workforce for a short period of time, that's all they are worth - if that.
Why should employers be forced to pay more for the same worthless employee?
This is just another Marxist idea from the Democrats to spread the wealth around to people who do nothing to earn it.
how about we get rid of the minimum wage entirely? That would motivate people to become worth something in the economy.
A person is paid according to their worth. If you want to be paid more, make the choices that will increase your worth.
Alternatively, you can choose to be poor. The choice is yours. The money is out there for you if you just make the choices to earn it.
How about going back to the days of coal mining when the workers weren't even paid real money. All the American companies could come out with their own currency that is only used in a company owned store. If you care to see what American companies would do to workers here were it not for the US laws look no further than China today. American companies hire slave teen girls, place them in work camps, work them 6 days a week 16 hours per day for .30 cents an hour.

At West Point where cadets are groomed into officers, and they are being taught Patriots Are Terrorists. A 148-page report released on January 15 is urging enlisted men and women to be on alert for “terrorists” in the form of those who consider themselves patriots. The government continues to build its fascist regime with Obama as the presumed leader. All hale the United Socialist Authority.

As the Constitution requires:
"...without the Consent of the Legislatures of the States concerned..."

Given that we are talking about one state, there is only one legislature to be considered.

Where was that legislature located?

Was the rebel legislature in Richmond the legitimate representation in the federal republic? Or, was the loyal legislature of what is now West Virginia that didn't rebel against the federal republic the legitimate representation in the federal republic?

If the legislature that didn't rebel against the federal republic was the legitimate representation in the federal republic, then all the requirements of the Constitution were satisfied.

You're only argument against this has to be that the rebel legislature that rebelled against the federal republic and participated as a functioning element in a separate country in rebellion against the federal republic was still the legitimate representative legislature in that federal republic they declared to no longer be part of.

This cannot be the case.

Coal Miners were never paid with fake money. Coal miners got payday advances using (early form of a gift certificate) commissary tokens to purchase goods from the company store. The military also issued certificates or tokens to purchase goods at the commissary at the base.
