John Galt, "About time that federal drones felt the pain of the rest of America." Too bad if you are too hypocritical and ashamed of your Ayn Randism cult religion to agree that the biggest 'federal drones on the public till: American corporations. U S fossil Fuel corporations should have to equally suffer the pains of the sequestration too. "Nearly one-third of these profits were used to repurchase companies’ stock, which only serves to pad the pockets of senior executives and the largest shareholders. The big five oil companies are also sitting on $82 billion in cash reserves, according to reports from the Securities and Exchange Commission for each company. While making these huge profits, BP and Exxon are the culprits in ongoing major oil disasters that are affecting the Gulf Coast and Arkansas." " Big Oil argues that it needs these tax breaks for oil exploration and development. Yet the big five oil companies produced 2 percent less oil in the first quarter of 2013, according to their recent financial statements, compared to the same time last year. These companies each have several hundred idle offshore leases that could produce oil if they were to be developed, according to an analysis for Rep. Ed Markey (D-MA). Instead, these companies leave the leases undeveloped while sitting on billions of dollars of cash reserves."Check this out: http://www.americanprogress.org/issues/green/... It looks like Ayn Rand's maxim 'Greed is good' is ruining the country, making climate change worse, and destroying our children's future. Hedrick Smith makes a powerful argument that when American corporations shifted from 'stakeholder capitalism' that presupposed a shared democratic social contract to 'stock option capitalism' based on a infinite growth plutocracy ethos America declined as a democratic republic superpower. Check this out: http://www.nytimes.com/2012/09/03/opinion/hen...
If you were trying to make a point, you failed.

If your point is that all tax loopholes and subsidies, including subsidies to business as well as individuals, should be eliminated, then Galt agrees.

Most federal government workers are useless. Essential workers like air traffic controllers should be privately funded by the air transportation industry.

We always hear Liberals talk about Left Brain versus Right Brain!!
Since Haw-vard leans Hard Left there was a study done to find out what is the definition of’ gross ignorance,’ the finding and the answer was not surprising … 144 Democrats!!

John Galt, "Financially secure people do not reach that status by overpaying for brand-name goods that they can buy cheaper at Walmart." No, they 'get that way' by believing that they are buying cheaper products from Walmart while in denial that Walmart dumps the higher costs of making 'cheaper' products on to the poorest countries in the world where the slave labor sweatshops are located . Poor countries that operate these sweatshops for Walmart and other companies that off-shore jobs pay the lion's share of the operating costs for Walmart while Walmart keeps the bulk of the profit .

Remember when the Bush's went after McCain? Calling his adopted daughter his brown love child? Exposed his wifes drug addiction?
Look at what the Mellon Scaife machine did to Bill Clinton? dogged him for years and years. Oddly enough Mellon Scaife himself was involved in a marital scandal, a tawdry affair at sleazy motels.
Remember how Hussein Obama forced his opponent out of the 2004 US Senate race with false accusations about sexual impropriety.

A roll of Bounty towels is the exact same product whether purchased in a convenience store or at a cheaper price at Walmart.

Conversely, some of the highest priced department stores in the country sell products made in Asian sweatshops.

Your argument defies all logic.

Republicans back to whining about cancer care cuts that they caused, but can not pass anything to change it. Republicans rather not be 'inconvenienced' by flight delays caused by the sequester then help cancer patients from dying. "As one of the sequester's unintended consequences, we're getting a map of who and what congressional Republicans give a damn about. Business travelers? My word, yes. Congress moved right away to keep furloughs from causing flight delays. Cancer patients on Medicare? Ehhhh ... I mean, sort of. Republicans care enough to complain a lot, but not like they cared about flight delays." Check this out: http://www.dailykos.com/story/2013/05/03/1206...

NASA should stick to space exploration instead of wasting money on politics.

Hey genius, are there enough jobs to support the available work force in America? I'll answer that for you, No! Having a job is a privilege & a blessing, not a right. There's people who get up every morning, just like the working man, & hit the streets looking for work like that's there job. You think you're better than them because you got the job that thousands of other people applied for? You were just blessed to be the 1 hired. You peoples problems are deeper than morals. Something implanted deep in your psyche that forces you to think about the less fortunate in a negative manor. It'd be better to not think about them at all, than to look at them in a negative light. Just shows you ignorance. The only difference between you & the bum on the streets is you got hired, & they didn't asshole! That has nothing to do with being liberal or conservative!

There are obvious reasons why some people get hired and others do not.

Politics do matter; most employers prefer employees with a conservative work ethic rather than a liberal sense of entitlement.

Same product but "may" be packaged differently. There's a bit of trickery going on as many manufactures customize package sizes for their key retail accounts.

Ralston Purina Tidy Cats litter is packaged in a dozen different sized yet similar looking containers. Matter of fact Purina pet products are among the most widely ranging in price from one store to another.

WalMart doesn't always win the price battle particularly with the coupon crowd but they usually win the selection battle.
