Can you imagine being forced to pay someone $22 per hour that doesn't know squat? What would be the incentive for the employee to learn a new skill or better their existing skills.?

Rush is right!!! He's got you progressives scared to death! The man isn't going to run for office. He can do much more out of office than in. Did you know he and his wife sponsor hundreds of scholarships each year? That he was brought up poor? The man is a genius with real accomplishments. Not some carnival backer community organizer.
Wow. That explains everything to know about your mental state.

What accomplishments? Duping a bunch of right whiners? Saying racist, bigoted things? Lying?

Rush Limbaugh is a fricken stupid man who dropped out of college and later discovered he could make millions playing to the stupidity, & racist attitudes of the right.

Wow, I bet you were really impressed when he mocked a man racked with Parkinson's. Or maybe calling a young woman a slut.

All while hiding behind a microphone.

Heck now they got cash registers that count out the change for them. They scan the bar cos on the items then feed the money into a slot. The change comes out two slots. One for paper money. One for change. They are the same as the cashier free machines except it has somebody there to do what you can do yourself. Seems old people and idiots like a body at the register so they redid the automated registers. We are at the mercy of the terminal stupid!!!!

Chairman Ryan Gets 62 Percent of His Huge Budget Cuts from Programs for Lower-Income Americans

House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan’s budget plan would get at least 62 percent of its $5.3 trillion in nondefense budget cuts over ten years (relative to a continuation of current policies) from programs that serve people of limited means. This stands a core principle of President Obama’s fiscal commission on its head and violates basic principles of fairness.

Not much has changed on this front from Chairman Ryan’s fiscal year 2012 budget plan released a year ago. Then, too, Chairman Ryan proposed massive spending cuts, the bulk of which were in programs that serve low- and moderate-income Americans.(Compared with last year’s plan, the cuts in low-income programs are larger in dollar terms but slightly smaller as a shareof the total cuts; see box.)

The plan of Erskine Bowles and Alan Simpson, who co-chaired President Obama’s National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform, established, as a basic principle, that deficit reduction should not increase poverty or widen inequality. The Ryan plan charts a different course, turning its biggest cannons on low- and moderate-income people.

With your ground rules, the only safe course for a male is to never have sex outside marriage, and maybe not even then.
Perhaps carry a blank written contract, to be signed by the woman attesting that she is sober and consents' to be witnessed by three other sober women.
By the way, what about women "raping" men who have had too much to drink?
BTW, what about men raping a boy who's had to much to drink?

I didn't see him do it but Uncle Bill managed to take his clothes off too somehow and he had what looked like a loaf of french bread sticking out of his stomach. Dad just kept on cleaning me up by rubbing his hand up and down between my legs and saying softly, "Who's daddy's dirty girl? Who's daddy's dirty little girl?" And, frankly, it started to feel pretty good so I found myself responding, "I am, I am!"...

I was in Chico last year and was not allowed into a bar because i did not have ID. The bouncer told me local law required all bar patrons to carry a valid form of ID while inside. They were checking everyone, some for possession and others for age. we were able to find a bar that didn't care that i didn't have ID with me.
It's the same way in Virginia but not enforced. But, however, if a ABCC officer comes in and demands to see your ID you better be able to get your hands on it pretty quick.

Rep. Hal Rogers (R-Ky.), chairman of the House Appropriations Committee, is concerned about the draconian cuts of Rep. Paul Ryan's (R-Wisc.) proposed budget.
“It cuts too much spending, frankly, from the discretionary side of the budget," Rogers said during an interview with a local Kentucky station on Thursday, first flagged by ThinkProgress.
Rogers, who has served in Congress for over three decades, represents the second-poorest district in the country. As chairman of the House Appropriations Committee, he oversees the funding of federal agencies and programs.
"Most people don’t realize that we only appropriate one-third of federal spending … and we’ve cut that by $100 billion over the last two years,“ Rogers said. "That's unknown since World War II."

So what?

It'd be nice if a few democrats actually broke away from the herd and thought for themselves once in a while.

There's nothing wrong with being critical and trying to find the best solutions within one's own party.

Liberals haven't got that one down yet. It's been observed that when the first talking points come out on the liberal websites and news outlets, liberals simply repeat the same phrases and key words for the rest of the day.

Give me a party who can disagree on finding the best solutions in wanting to do what's best for the country any day.

The Medicare proposals in the 2014 budget resolution developed by House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R-WI) are essentially the same as those in last year’s Ryan budget. Once again, Chairman Ryan proposes to replace Medicare’s guarantee of health coverage with a premium-support voucher and raise the age of eligibility for Medicare from 65 to 67. Together, these changes would shift substantial costs to Medicare beneficiaries and (with the simultaneous repeal of health reform) leave many 65- and 66-year-olds without any health coverage.
