Sockpuppets are such idiots.

""Senate Republicans on Tuesday ruled out placing armed drone strikes under the authority of a special court, arguing the move would be a dangerous intrusion on presidential power.
Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) last week raised the idea of creating a new oversight court for drones that would be patterned after the checks and balances that govern surveillance.
But senior Republicans in the Senate dismissed that plan as unrealistic, and warned it would undermine critical counterterrorism efforts.
“I think it is a terrible idea,” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) told The Hill.
A new court would be “the biggest intrusion ... in the history of [this] country” on the president’s authority as commander in chief, Graham said.""

Study Confirms Tea Party Was Created by Big Tobacco and Billionaire Koch Brothers

""A new academic study confirms that front groups with longstanding ties to the tobacco industry and the billionaire Koch brothers planned the formation of the Tea Party movement more than a decade before it exploded onto the U.S. political scene.

Far from a genuine grassroots uprising, this astroturf effort was curated by wealthy industrialists years in advance. Many of the anti-science operatives who defended cigarettes are currently deploying their tobacco-inspired playbook internationally to evade accountability for the fossil fuel industry's role in driving climate disruption.

The study, funded by the National Cancer Institute of the National Institute of Health, traces the roots of the Tea Party's anti-tax movement back to the early 1980s when tobacco companies began to invest in third party groups to fight excise taxes on cigarettes, as well as health studies finding a link between cancer and secondhand cigarette smoke.

Published in the peer-reviewed academic journal, Tobacco Control, the study titled,'To quarterback behind the scenes, third party efforts': the tobacco industry and the Tea Party, is not just an historical account of activities in a bygone era. As senior author, Stanton Glantz, a University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) professor of medicine, writes:

"Nonprofit organizations associated with the Tea Party have longstanding ties to tobacco companies, and continue to advocate on behalf of the tobacco industry's anti-tax, anti-regulation agenda."

The two main organizations identified in the UCSF Quarterback study are Americans for Prosperity and Freedomworks. Both groups are now "supporting the tobacco companies' political agenda by mobilizing local Tea Party opposition to tobacco taxes and smoke-free laws." Freedomworks and Americans for Prosperity were once a single organization called Citizens for a Sound Economy (CSE). CSE was founded in 1984 by the infamous Koch Brothers, David and Charles Koch, and received over $5.3 million from tobacco companies, mainly Philip Morris, between 1991 and 2004.

In 1990, Tim Hyde, RJR Tobacco's head of national field operations, in an eerily similar description of the Tea Party today, explained why groups like CSE were important to the tobacco industry's fight against government regulation. Hyde wrote:

"... coalition building should proceed along two tracks: a) a grassroots organizational and largely local track,; b) and a national, intellectual track within the DC-New York corridor. Ultimately, we are talking about a "movement," a national effort to change the way people think about government's (and big business) role in our lives. Any such effort requires an intellectual foundation - a set of theoretical and ideological arguments on its behalf." "

You idiots were bought and paid for by the Koch Bros.

So much for the 'spontaneous' appearence of the Teabaggers.

And now it's dead.

One of my first jobs was working at a shoe factory making minimum wage. I think it was $1.60 an hour. Inflation corrected for today, that's like $10.60 an hour.

Guess what, companies survived!!!!!!! They prospered!!!!!!!!

Funny how the nitwits are so concerned about leaving debt for their children and grandchildren.

Yet they have no concern about leaving a dying, polluted planet to their children and grandchildren.

Today's Republiclowns will be looked at as the biggest fools in the world as the public becomes increasingly concrened about the effects of climate change.

Yet another issue for the Clowns to lose future elections over.

Obama has them over a barrel!!

Cutting taxes has the same effect as raising the minimum wage...it puts more money in people's pockets, yet these loony left wingers will fight tooth and nail to raise taxes. they're crazy.
People making minimum wage most likely would not be paying federal income taxes.

In the past, Republicans passed the tax credits as a way of avoiding raising the minimum wages. Sort of like subsidizing businesses.

It would be interesting to have the members of Congress participate in a means test for a month, go find an apartment, buy food, gas, insurance, health insurance, daycare etc. then get back to us; and let Miss Phuckface Marsha Blackburn, get back to us with her effing whiny southern twang that sounds like fingernails on a chalkboard.
40 hours a week x 50 weeks = 2000 hours x 9 dollars an hour = 18,000 not 15,000 once again your breath is stronger than your math skills , liberals and math don't mix well .

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.
The restored government was recognized by the Union, as will as Abraham Lincoln, as the State of Virginia with it's capital in Wheeling.

The Federal minimum wage is not $9, it's $7.25 so her math is just fine.
