So you believe Jonah was swallowed by a whale and was spit out on shore three days later but scientists supported by empirical data are scamming everyone about climate change.
No and who is Johah? Do you believe every hoax you are told which is what you call empirical data? LAMO!

They create hundreds of low paying parttime jobs and instruct their employees on how to apply for medicaide, Walmart believes in socialized medicine, we the taxpayers are paying their employees health insurance, we the taxpayers are paying their property taxes, we the taxpayers are allowing them to keep the sales tax they collect. You're so way out there on this that it's pathetic.
Other businesses cannot compete with them, they come into town to destroy. Before you know it, all surrounding businesses hear this:
"This is cheaper at Walmart" no shit it's cheaper.
"silly"
An example of the destruction Wal-Mart does. A few years ago they opened a store in a basically dead shopping center. The only other operating businesses in the center were, a Weight Watchers Clinic and a tat too shop and A Safeway store. Safeway is still there, also a New Mc Donalds opened, a Chevron gas station and mini mart opened, Rite Aid took over an abandoned building and opened a drug store, a family restaurant re-opened, a buffet eatery came into being and a auto parts store opened. Apparently all of the businesses are doing well, none are closing.
Just stating the facts this is coming from a person who has never spent a dime at Wal-Mart and have no plans to do so. Wal-Mart also paid nearly 1 million dollars for traffic upgrades. A quick check shows that Wal-Mart is paying taxes, employment taxes, property taxes and collecting a ton of state sales tax dollars.

Why can't republicans use logic? Dave explained it well; if Jimmy claims that Jody Arias is guilty because she admitted killing her boyfriend, then why have a trial?
Zimmerman admitted killing Trayvon Martin, so therefore, why have a trial?
What is so hard to understand here? Obviously Jimmy is a moron. Surprised he said that since gunner claims he was a cop.
It doesn't matter if you're guilty or not, it's what the jury decides and how good your lawyer is.
Admitting to killing someone is not the same as confessing to a crime.

Abortion doctors kill people every day, claiming legal protection.

No difference from "stand your ground" or "self defense."

Most Walmart employees are thrilled to have any job in the rotten Obama economy.

EasyEed should shop at Walmart for those brand-name items that are priced lower than at other stores.

Jeremiah Wright - nobody likes Obama because he's half black, poor and deprived.
Bill Ayers - unrepentant violent criminal.
Saul Alinksy - the Godfather of all radical liberals.
Valerie Jarret - notorious Chicago slum lord.
Tony Rezko - convicted on several counts of fraud and bribery.

The fires are just the result of a naturally dry climate and seasonal Santa Ana winds.

But why do we not receive a fraction of the media attention given to a rainstorm in NY/NJ?

Aunt Bettie Lou,'Obama has led a more priveleged life than most whites.' Try to proofread your spelling-- it's not priveleged . The correct spelling is 'privileged'. Barack Hussein Obama was raised by a young single mother who was struggling to complete her college education, worked to support herself and her young son and needed help from her middle class , Kansas-born parents. Not so 'privileged ' as 'most whites', but closer to the social norm these days . "Obama is considerably wealthy from his books and his short stents as both a lawyer and a senator. " The Obama's joint tax returns show that he made roughly $600,000 in the last year mostly on sales of his books and his President's salary --well within the median range of taxpayers who President Obama says ought to have a 3% raise in their taxes. So, basically , President Obama thinks that he and people like him--in the same income bracket should shoulder more of the tax burden for the country.
Always had trouble with that word. Don't know why. Meant to do a spellcheck but forgot before sending it.

Obama was brought up largely by his grandparents. They lived modestly but Obama attended Hawaii's top prep academy.

After Columbia University, he attended Harvard Law School and taught at the University of Chicago Law School.

Obama had many doors opened for him. The question surrounding who opened them for him remains unanswered.
