I wonder if any of these morons will read and comprehend the magnitude of this.
I wonder if you libs can comprehend how much less tax money would have to be spent on wlefare and free lunch if only one would make responsible decisions and not have children that they can not take care of.

The possession of a joint or a small amount of marijuana is not an arrestable offense in my opinion.
But if not buckling up is dangerous, texting is even more dangerous.
It seems contradictory to me that you don't want the police to harrass the public - and I agree - but you don't mind the federal government getting right in our faces and being "all up in that". So to speak.
Are you referring to Obamacare?
Yes seat belts are important, texting is bad; however, when you give the police more ways to harrass people, they will do it and once you give them that power, it's hard to take it back. Did you read that there's going to be a police hotline wherein people can call and say, "hey, my neighbor down the street is acting funny" and the police will go to the persons house? What a nightmare.
This was a Republican idea.
When I see people texting; it's more often than not a young mother in a big SUV with children in the back, I don't get why people have to be on phones all the time. You see it everywhere, children are being ignored at doctors offices, beaches, malls, stores, carwashes; the parents are texting or playing words with friends and their kids are running rampant. I can't imagine what the repercussions of these out of touch parents will be to the future.

HEY STUPID! Wal-Mart destroys more jobs when they come into a community than they provide. The jobs they provide are so low paying that their employees have to apply for supplemental assistance and food stamps.
• Wal-Mart's intentionally low wages force employees to need approximately $420,000 per year, per store, totaling $2.66 BILLION annually in food stamps and other taxpayer assistance…to survive.
• Wal-Mart's intentionally low wages cost the country HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS of dollars in payroll tax deductions for Federal, State, and Local taxes.
• Wal-Mart's intentionally low wages cost our communities the ability to hire and retain important public service workers like firefighters, police officers, maintenance workers, and teachers.
• Wal-Mart's intentionally low wages cost our communities with their increased need for those same public services they are underfunding.
• Wal-Mart's intentionally low wages and lack of covered benefits cost taxpayers over $1.02 BILLION a year in healthcare costs.
• Wal-Mart's intentionally low wages cost taxpayers as much as $225 MILLION in free and reduced price lunches for school-age children. Not the employer's problem. They can get a second job.
• Wal-Mart's intentionally low wages cost taxpayers over $780 MILLION in tax deductions for low-income families.
You're an idiot Jimmy!
No they don't. Not the employer's problem. They can get a second job. Not the employer's problem. HAHAHAHAHA!!! That's a lie! Not an employer's problem. Not an employer's problem. You're out your mind. But still not an employer's problem. People are responsible for themselves and family. No one else.

An unprecedented 32 black republicans ran for office in the 2010 elections. So it's probably safe to say their numbers are growing without a website.
Perhaps the blacks and the hispanics and gays are infiltrating your party to dismantle it!! Change from within. Lookout!

Obama and his handlers threw the book at them - apparently Hillary too.
"Shame on you, Barack Obama! Shame on you!"
Hillary Clinton 2008
No one said politics wasn't a dirty game, it's not for the faint at heart. Anyone who decides to get in the game has to face the consequences, there are no more secrets anymore. That guy was a sleazeball and his wife had it in for him. Can't say I blame her.
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.

HOUSTON (The Borowitz Report)—National Rifle Association C.E.O. Wayne LaPierre used his opening speech at the N.R.A.’s national convention today to highlight several challenges facing the organization, including what he called “the rising cost of Senators.”
“Over the past few years, we’ve seen the price of purchasing a Senator surge astronomically,” he told the N.R.A. faithful.“Unless something is done to make Senators more affordable, the ability of a tiny lobbying group to overrule the wishes of ninety per cent of the American people will be in jeopardy.”
The days are over, he said, when “you could buy a Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) for little more than pocket change.”
“Now it costs thousands to purchase a marginally effective Senator like Kelly Ayotte (R-N.H.),” he said.
Mr. LaPierre was followed at the podium by the former Alaska governor Sarah Palin, the rock musician Ted Nugent, and several other people who would not pass background checks.
The Borowitz Report is just as accurate as ABC, NBC, or CBS.

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.

Close the local Walmart and the employees are all on welfare.

If Walmart paid significantly higher wages and benefits, the current workers would be replaced by more qualified people.

And the standard of living of the poor in the community would be reduced by dramatically higher prices.

You always cease to amaze. I'll bet you're one of those famous "Wal-Mart Shoppers" we see pictures of all the time. You're the 250 pounder pushing a cart full of Doritos and Keystone Light, with pink hair, black expandex tights, and wearing a way too small T-shirt that says "Bargoyle" across the front.
The idea that all Walmart shoppers are poor is ridiculous.

Financially secure people do not reach that status by overpaying for brand-name goods that they can buy cheaper at Walmart.

Where do these people get their economic ideas? Just like them idiots up in New York that thinks McDonald's should pay some one $20 an hour to push a picture on a register. This country is doomed from the inside.

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.

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 .
