Waxman, "Libtards love to ignore and refute facts." Then today's Republicans must have become 'liptards' Tea Party Republicans: We don't need no stinking facts"! "The politics of paranoia can lead policymakers into some unfortunate directions. On everything from homeland security to education to guns, paranoid politicians invariably end up pushing some truly bizarre proposals for no good reason.

In the latest example, some far-right congressional Republicans have decided to wage a war on census data because they have paranoid ideas about "big government."

A group of Republicans are cooking up legislation that could give President Barack Obama an unintentional assist with disagreeable unemployment numbers -- by eliminating the key economic statistic altogether.

The bill, introduced last week by Rep. Jeff Duncan (R-S.C.), would bar the U.S. Census Bureau from conducting nearly all surveys except for a decennial population count. Such a step that would end the government's ability to provide reliable estimates of the employment rate. Indeed, the government would not be able to produce any of the major economic indices that move markets every month, said multiple statistics experts, who were aghast at the proposal.

"They simply wouldn't exist. We won't have an unemployment rate," said Ken Prewitt, the former director of the U.S. Census who is now a professor of public affairs at Columbia University." Check this out: http://maddowblog.msnbc.com/_news/2013/05/02/...

John Galt, "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. " Henry Ford would emphatically disagree with your wrongheaded meanness and disregard for your community. Henry Ford wrote,...' paying high wages was also smart business. When wages are low, uncertainty dogs the marketplace and growth is weak. But when pay is high and steady, Ford asserted, business is more secure because workers earn enough to become good customers.'
The welfare state has made Henry Ford's reasoning obsolete.

Besides, Ford needed better workers than the average Walmart employee.

It's derby day and as some remember I've picked the top finishers each year of this thread and even the trifecta once.

BTW there's a black jockey this year and he's on a good horse named Goldencents__his name is Krigger which rhymes with trigger.

I like Revolutionary because Calvin Borel is on board, Itsmyluckyday ridden by Elvis Trujillo, Palace Malace with Mike Smith up and Will Take Charge with Jon Court to finish in the top four.

At this moment I'm thinking Revolutionary to win__Palace Malace to place. I'm still thinking about show.

Just an FYI but 100 years ago many of the jockeys, trainers and even some owners were black.

Read more: http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2013/05/04/fa... ; So, your Faux News is claiming that Obama has tried to hide the fact that Republicans really do believe in global warming and want comprehensive climate change laws to force fossil fuel companies on steep reductions of greenhouse gasses? That's a new one coming from Fox News! Did Rush Limbaugh get the memo yet?:-D

John Galt, "The welfare state has made Henry Ford's reasoning obsolete." How so? The welfare state was at its height when ' America enjoyed its best period of sustained growth in the decades after World War II, from 1945 to 1973, even though income tax rates were far higher than today.' So, a welfare-wellness liberal government has performed best of all .

Just out of curiosity why do you structure your responses like that? The responses are sensible but require effort to read and sort out.
