So now we know how you really feel about the Consitution, you are all for it only when it suits your purpose.
I think you should read the majority opinion of SCOTUS and not the first paragraph of a wiki page. Then you will realize how stupid you are showing people you are. This will be the last post about this subject.

give me some hard data on why we shouldn't have it.
and no, i don't expect you will even try. you seem to have an aversion to empirical data. we haven't seen a hard fact from you yet.
but why actually make me look the fool when you have a handful of emphatic statements that cover every tea party myth.[?]
How about common sense, and experience.

I pay the people in accordance with what they are worth.
I compete with other companies to keep the people I DEEM to be worth keeping.
Those who perform the best, I pay more. Those who don't perform, I pay less... and get rid of when I don't need the services of someone who is still only worth minimum wage after being in the workforce for several years.

You dodge the issue.
I asked why an employer should pay more for aan employee that isn't what he's paying it now?

... got an answer for that?

Bush also called upon Fannie and Freddie to play a greater role, lower lending requirements, AND legislation was passed ( by the GOP) to cover the down payment for low income families.
Why?

Because Libtards would use the media to accuse Bush of racists if he attempted to be fiscally responsible with Fannie and Fredie!

Actually, the did ANYWAY!

The message Fox has on again/off again observed is overwhelmingly clear: no president has the power to influence gas prices in light of a complex geopolitical climate and myriad other market forces affecting supply and demand.

Because orders came from the White House for the US Armed Forces (part of the Department of Defense) prepositioned specifically to respond to an attack specifically on our embassy (part of the Department of State) in specifically Libya to ignore their default orders while the White House watched Al Qaeda kill Americans on the real-tiem video feed.

Then, Obama lies for two weeks covering up an Al Qaeda attack on the United States.

You bet I want to know what the f**k was happening in the goddam White House when they gave orders to the US Armed Froces to let Al Qaeda kill Americans while they watched it happen.

Hey, goofball, what about stopping the free Medicaid to drug dealers?
What about stopping welfare to lazy ghetto parasites like you? That will save trillions of dollars!
the founding fathers seen it that way too and rejected Capitalism but favored Socialism and Clause 3 the commerce clause grants the Federal government to regulate and that was the Standard at the time too it wasnt called Socialism either until Karl Marxs called it Socialism where there is moderate government involvement in economical matters(taxes).

Article 1 Section 8 Clause 1, The very first power given to Congress by the Constitution is the power to tax. Money is power, and in the governmental structure created by the Constitution, Congress—not the president—controls the money.

Article 1, Section 8

Clause 1. The Congress shall have Power To lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts and Excises, to pay the Debts and provide for the common Defence and general Welfare of the United States; but all Duties, Imposts and Excises shall be uniform throughout the United States;

The very first power given to Congress by the Constitution is the power to tax. Money is power, and in the governmental structure created by the Constitution, Congress—not the president—controls the money. Congress also has the power to levy tariffs (taxes on imported goods) but it's not allowed to charge more for imports into one state than into another. The Framers of the Constitution probably put the tax power first on the list of Congress's enumerated powers because they were acutely aware that one of the biggest problems of the old Articles of Confederation was that its version of Congress did not have the power to tax, and thus didn't have the power to do much of anything at all.

Clause 3. To regulate Commerce with foreign Nations, and among the several States, and with the Indian Tribes;

Congress has the power to impose regulations on interstate and international business. This "interstate commerce clause" has been quite controversial in the history of constitutional law; for a long time, judges tended to read the clause narrowly, overturning federal laws they deemed focused mainly on regulating economic activity within states rather than between them. Since the 1930s, however, judges have tended to read the clause broadly, allowing the government to regulate all kinds of economic activity—by setting a national minimum wage, for example

“We must not become the party of austerity. We must become the party of (economic) growth,” Jindal said.“We have fallen into a trap of believing the world revolves around Washington.”

http://livewire.talkingpointsmemo.com/entry/j...

it's just way to easy to say nothing but: cut spending.

looking at the lack of data to support conservative theories, ideas that actually grow the economy seem out of touch for today's conservative.

Petey, Petey, Petey, If you call this steady growth, better get off your handheld and pay attention in class. Under 4% is putting us in the dumper, every month it happens. Of course you wouldn't know that because you don't work or have a clue?

Nothing is going with obama.
A too much passive way to govern. Indeed he is not acting as he should do concerning certain current events as the incident which costed the life of an ambassador. He was aware of this offensive and did nothing, even not tried to warn his collegues.
Then the reforms that he sets are not good in a long run: a social system which favors lazy part of the population and is not fair for those who work hard to earn money. A mediatic way of governing which tend to forget the core government issues.
HE is not a competent president. Moreover, he is young and doesn't have enough experience to carry out those functions the best he could do.

Bottom line West Virginia was created illegally and should never been allowed per Arcticle 4 Section 3 of the U.S. Constitution.
End of story.

1) Catholic
2) mixed race (French, Spanish, Native American, black, jew... in addition to Scot/Irish)
3) recently located there
you'd have a goddam clue about what the f**k you're talking about.
What did you say? You never had to fight it out with the goddam Klan?
Well, I did your goddam fighting for you.
Just like other white people did your fighting for you to end slavery.
Now, tell us why you're so goddam special you need special treatment from the government.
