It's spelled "enough" and you're totally delusional to think that the majority of the country is like Ward and June Cleaver and have sex on Saturday nights in the missionary position. Wonder whos bed they used of the 2 twins in the room?
There's a whole world out there; different strokes for differnt folks, it's none of your business. Teach your children that everyone is different and to respect people the way that they are.
If you're teaching them to be bible thumping self righteous pricks, then you are doing them a disservice as a parent. Intolerance, ignorance, homophobia, racism, xenophobia, sexism; are all learned behaviors; usually taught by igorant parents.
I find your intolerence of people with moral values that teach their children right from wrong to be very hypocritical comming from a person that says we need to be tolerant of others. Are you confused or just a hypocrite?

<quoted text> I don't know the exact statistics but, understand my analogy. There's 360 million people in the country. Lets say roughly 150 mill are work eligible adults. That means there needs to be 150 mill jobs. There is not enuff jobs to keep up with the public demand of employment, let alone people working 2 or 3 jobs. What you call menial jobs are physically demanding for the most part. What I want to know is , what makes you think your job is more important? What make you believe that you families well being is more important? What gives you the right to what we know as, a standard American life when I just explained that there isn't even enuff jobs for everybody to have 1 job. Why should a person be forced to work 2 or 3 jobs just to make inns meet? That only takes from other eligible workers, who eventually wind up on welfare. Then you'll be complaining about that. It's not peoples position to want to work menial jobs. It's the fact there isn't enuff jobs in the first place, let alone good paying ones to fit thesscenario you're suggesting. As far as your comments on the middle class. It makes no sense at all! The middle class job holders started out in front of the 8 ball. If they never got their income increased, they'd still be able to make rent. What you're doing is discriminating on folks by class. You're saying the top 2 classes deserve raises & an American standard of living, & the bottom class doesn't. Everyone can't receive loans from banks to start their own business, so they do what they need to do for their families well being. They too deserve an American standard of life! Probably more so then the other 2. It's new in the republican party. It's called trickle up economics!
I don't care for statistics or links from so called experts, I see
to much of that on Topix.
I would much rather here what you or any other poster on here opinion are, I place far more value in that then any statistics.

You are trying to place a sence of fairness into the way things
work.....big mistake.
Life is not easy by any means....some have it better then others
for sure about that.
But when we look to the Federal government for the answers
to such complex problems is when things get all screwed up even
worse.

From what I See all over your post....is a sense of fairness
is needed a sense a life equality is needed....so its only
natural to look to the government to provide this.
And guess what? the government is more then willing to try and do so.....in the form of wage and price controls welfare the tax code
social programs and social engineering.
Guess what...it does not work....these programs never take into
account basic free market capitalism and the principle needed to apply them and they never take into account basic human nature
when given the choice to get a free hand out rather then working
hard for what is needed.

Its not my job or your job to decide what job has more value what
jobs should pay.....that is to be decided by the market place.
When we do that....balance will be found and maintained.
Its when we depend on the MARKET (YOU AND ME) And start to reject
answers from the government...we will then have more then enough
jobs for those who will work hard to take them and keep them.

NEWARK, N.J.-- A cardiologist with offices in New York and New Jersey has admitted taking part in a scheme that subjected thousands of patients to unnecessary tests and treatment and resulted in $19 million in bogus bills, what authorities call the largest case of health care fraud ever by a practitioner in either state.

Dr. Jose Katz pleaded guilty Wednesday in federal court to conspiracy to commit health care fraud.

Katz founded Cardio-Med Services LLC and Comprehensive Healthcare & Medical Services.

Prosecutors say he falsely diagnosed most of his Medicare and Medicaid patients with coronary artery disease and debilitating angina so he could treat them unnecessarily. They say he even prescribed treatment in cases in which doing so subjected the patients to risk of injury or death.

Katz is scheduled to be sentenced July 23.

Bowing to pressure from students, Dr. Ben Carson on Wednesday stepped down as commencement speaker at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, the Baltimore Sun reported.

In a letter sent to Dr. Paul B. Rothman, dean of the medical school, Carson said his withdrawal from the ceremony "would be in the best interest of the students."

"Given all the national media surrounding my statements as to my belief in traditional marriage, I believe it would be in the best interest of the students for me to voluntarily withdraw as your commencement speaker this year," Carson, the director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins, wrote. He will also step down as the speaker for the diploma ceremony at the university's school of education.

Anti-gay remarks made recently by Carson during an appearance on Fox News sparked a furor among Johns Hopkins students, who circulated a petition to have the renowned neurosurgeon replaced as commencement speaker.

"Marriage is between a man and a woman," Carson told Fox's Sean Hannity during the appearance. "No group, be they gays, be they NAMBLA, be they people who believe in bestiality, it doesn't matter what they are they don't get to change the definition."

Before making his decision official, Carson said last month that he was prepared to honor the wishes of those students and step down as graduation speaker. Last week, he apologized for those remarks after being rebuked by Rothman.

What the market does or doesn't do no longer is a concern to me. However the house is being built upon the sand. There is no logic in the market. It is only a matter of time. What will spark it is anybodies guest. You do realize that most of the market push up is automated driven. Earn some money but be careful. People in 1929 thought the party would never end too.

Barack and Michelle Obama paid tribute to Memphis soul yesterday in the latest iteration of "In Performance at the White House," celebrating the Tennessee city that brought blacks and whites together through music despite segregation and racism in the 1960s. "These songs get us on the dance floor," Obama said. "They get stuck in our heads. We go back over them again and again. And they've played an important part in our history."

The sound of Soulsville, U.S.A., a music that, at its core, is about the pain of being alone, the power of human connection and the importance of treating each other right," he continued. "After all, this is the music that asked us to try a little tenderness. It's the music that put 'Mr. Big Stuff' in his place. And it's the music that challenged us to accept new ways of thinking with four timeless words:'Can you dig it?'"

Performers included Sam Moore of the duo Sam and Dave and American Idol Season 11 finalist Joshua Ledet taking on "Soul Man," and Justin Timberlake and Cropper joining together for a rendition of Otis Redding's "(Sittin' On) the Dock of the Bay." Alabama Shakes, Ben Harper, Cyndi Lauper, Charlie Musselwhite, Mavis Staples, Queen Latifah and William Bell also performed, with Latifah serving as host and Jones as bandleader. Al Green was set to perform but withdrew at the last minute after suffering a back injury

Can't spark a debate, now can we?

Dr. Carson might just have offered the students some new insight as to why half of the country also stands against gay marriage including the president, Hillary Clinton and Bill Clinton before they started conning gays for their vote too.

Hey choco taco, I bet you like it hard and from behind, right through the overalls. Don't ask me how I know, I just CAN! I'm a woman, and a mighty retarded one. My mom went to Jesus in the same crash where I got my massive head injuries. Yep, that's right -- just like you, I got a double whammy -- born slow (but straight, thank God), and with those funny little corn teeth all squeezed into a mouth that's way too little for them. I grew up on the side of the mountain that gets no sun, so I got no Vitamin D either. We ate lint on a good day. Lots of stuff, but I don't want to be unduly prolix (whoops, I don't really talk like that!).
So, besides being born retarded, what happened to you to make you as proudly stupid as I am? Did you get clocked with a pipe wrench in the service? Generally, I makes loads of spelling honkers in every other sentence, but today I seem to be possessed. I agree with everything you said about those evil homosexuals, by the way. Why should they get to take all the good looking, creative, well muscled men, while us girls (if we're lucky) get to blow pipe fitters and truckers.
Like so many things in this great, great country, it's just not fair!
Not even close to the truth...Idiot!!
