Barack Obama, our next President

Obama’s Minimum-Wage Gambit Puts Republicans on Defensive
The president’s surprise call for an increase to $9 an hour in the State of the Union has the GOP on the wrong end of popular opinion again.

Oh, jeeezzz.... what bullshit.
A person born a minority has more opportunity than a non-minority. All they have to do is take advantage of those opportunities.
Ever hear of "affirmative action", you goddam idiot?
If you want to actually discuss this, please tell us why minorities still aren't taking advantage of those opportunities that have been available to them for fifty goddam years.
Why do you think this is the fact?
What opportunities are you harping on? Did you ever think the need for affirmative action points directly to the inequalities/biases black people face. If blacks have more opportunities, why then don't you state them & make them clear because affirmative action only made it so a certain% of black were offered the same opportunities as white people. Please do back up your claims with evidence. Teach me something I don't know!

Get rid of the minimum wage entirely.
If a person is still making minimum wage after any appreciable time working for a living, that's all they are worth... if that much.
Why should an employer pay more for the same useless employee?
i just love it when those on the wrong side of public opinion just want to get rid of the issue that they can't win.

we see that on FOX a lot.

Ok so now we are down to 49 states with West Virginia being declared Unconstitutional in the minds of sane people. Flack's unwillingness to self-deport himself out of the real state of Virginia should have INS breathing down his neck shortly.
Not to worry Flack I hear they are working on an 8 year path to citizenship.
What else going on today?
What don't you understand about the legislators rebelling against the federal republic not being the representation of the state of Virginia in the federal republic?

"New States may be admitted by the Congress into this Union; but no new States shall be formed or erected within the Jurisdiction of any other State; nor any State be formed by the Junction of two or more States, or parts of States, without the Consent of the Legislatures of the States concerned as well as of the Congress."

Since it was only one state, and the legislators rebelling against the federal republic and participating as a funcitoning element of another country cannot be considered as representation in the federal republic for the state of Virginia, and the legislators loyal to the federal republic petitioned for the creation of a new state, and Congress consented to this request, how the hell do you figure West Virginia was unconstitutionally admitted?

Show us where the loyal legislators of Virginia violated this clause:

"Section 4. The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened) against domestic Violence."

If you cannot show that this clause was violated, then you have to admit that West Virginia was admitted into the union constitutionally.

Please tell us about "affirmative action", then tell us after 50 goddam years of preferrential treatment, minorities still aren't taking advantage of the opportunities that have been given specifically to them and no other race for 50 years.
Why do you think minorities aren't taking advantage of the opportunities established solely for them?
Because whites are still 72% of the population and I know you don't believe this but racism is still alive and well and thriving in some areas.

Everyone is a goddam victiim, dufus. Life isn't fair. Get used to that fact of life.

Now, since you are admitting that the affirmative action programs gave preferrential treatment to black people, please continue the discussion and tell us why black people are still in the same situation now as they were 50 years ago when the preferrrential treatment for them began.

You forgot to put content into your post. I gave a reason to eliminate the minimum wage. What is your reason to keep it? And, why do you think it is good for the economy to increasei it?

By the way, you never answered the question of where the money will come from to pay for Obama's government.

<quoted text> Bullshit! Those entitlement programs are in jeopardy because the rich raped the current tax system & found ways to escape from paying into the programs. The rich don't pay into medicare,medicaid, & SS. Thats where the problem lies. This country is in debt because the rich continue to take alot & give very littler back in terms of taxes. You don't need a palm reader to see that!
Social Security benefits are not guaranteed.

They are not guaranteed legally because workers have no contractual or property rights to any benefits whatsoever. In two landmark cases, Flemming v. Nestor and Helvering v. Davis, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that Social Security taxes are not contributions or savings, but simply taxes, and that Social Security benefits are simply a government spending program, no different than, say, farm price supports. Congress and the president may change, reduce, or even eliminate benefits at any time.

....the life prospects of an American are more dependent on the income and education of his parents than in almost any other advanced country for which there is data.

How do we explain this? Some of it has to do with persistent discrimination. Latinos and African-Americans still get paid less than whites, and women still get paid less than men, even though they recently surpassed men in the number of advanced degrees they obtain.

your view is all about white male privilege....

and those of them who failed in life who need to blame others.

The legal legislature was in absentia having seceded temporarily from the Union. Had they successfully left and had been recognized as a seperate country then you might have a case. Even then West Virginia should have been Virginia, the mere fact that they created a new state called West Virginia violates the Constitution.

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.

I am well aware of that fact. All anyone has to do is listen to Jeremiah Wright to figure that out.
Oh, you mean the only racism is from white people, right?
Perhaps if you lived in the same region that produced someone like David Duke, and your family was:
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.
how about you join the real world with everyone else here?

Like you really understand what you posted.
I'll put it to you simply:
Geothermal heating is a piece of cake. Just drill a hole to the temperature you desire, and circulate water through it and throughout the building.
Geothermal cooling is very difficult. Why? Because the heat you transfer from a building to the ground has to be transported away from the location of the building, or it just rises back into the building.
Any questions?
How about this one:
How is the heat transported away from the location of the building after it has been transferred from the building to the Earth immediately below the building?
... your turn, dufus.
You claim to be a geologist.

What a joke.

This is not geothermal HVAC as considered in the marketplace.
