Wrong again stupid! When Social Security was enacted it applied only to private sector employees and excluded those in the private sector, like teachers, police, firefighters, etc. In the 1950's the law was changed so that states could, on a voluntary basis and by referendum place their public sector workers into the federal system or retain their independent retirement systems. There are 14 states which have opted to retain state retirement systems.
Public sector workers who have an independent retirement system don't pay into Social Security but then again they don't collect on it either. So how are they tax cheats dimwit?
But thank you for demonstrating once again how abysmally ignorant you are.
Because Social Security is a tax to fund benefits for current retirees and those on disability, not a retirement program for future retirees.

So, you think that people will buy things at this new Walmart that they never ever purchased in local stores prior to Walmart's opening?
Or do you think they would be buying stuff at Walmart instead of the stores they used to shop.
It is obvious that Walmart sales takes away from sales at other local stores.
To argue that is doesn't is beyond stupid.

"The president’s approval rating stands at 45%, down from 53% in mid-May. And 54% say they disapprove of how Obama’s handling his job, up nine points from last month. It’s the first time in CNN polling since November 2011 that a majority of Americans have had a negative view of the president.
“The drop in Obama’s support is fueled by a dramatic 17-point decline over the past month among people under 30, who, along with black Americans, had been the most loyal part of the Obama coalition,” says CNN Polling Director Keating Holland.…"

Another major scandal is about to break. A CBS investigative correspondent, Sharyl Attkinsson, is about to accuse the government of hacking into her computer when she was reporting about the scandals.

http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-201_162-57589367/...

She and her lawyers are not prepared to name the culprit yet even though they know who did it, but it's the next thing coming down the pike.

Just wait until the civil suits start flying against the IRS and the DOJ.

This is not going to be a good summer for Obama.

They don't pay taxes; they collect the sales tax and are allowed to keep it, they don't pay property taxes either. In addition, you are paying for their employees to have universal healthcare.
Not to mention the things you buy there, pink slime burgers and balogna logs are killing you.

Walmart's U.S. unit says about two-thirds of the goods it buys to sell in its stores are made, sourced from or grown in the United States, citing data from its suppliers.
Last year, 55 percent of Walmart U.S. sales came from groceries like food and drinks as well as health and beauty products, household goods such as paper towels, and pet supplies. Many of the items are typically sourced locally.
Only 7 percent of Walmart U.S. sales were of apparel, jewelry and accessories, which retailers typically get from lower-cost countries.

Calm down booby. There is more to it than just the Chinese aspect, that is mostly for Flack's benefit and his undying love for his Communist Chinese overlords.

Let's not forget:

Exploitation of the workers
Drain on the federal government
Putting the local shops out of business
Destruction of the local community
Forcing companies to sell at ridiculously low prices or shut them out, which also has a trickle down effect, those companies make less which they then turn and pay their employees less

Walmart is pure evil.

The White House issued a statement on Monday threatening to veto a House bill that would ban abortions in the United States after 20 weeks of pregnancy.
"Forty years ago, the Supreme Court affirmed a woman's constitutional right to privacy, including the right to choose," the administration said. "This bill is a direct challenge to Roe v. Wade and shows contempt for women's health and
rights, the role doctors play in their patients' health care decisions, and the Constitution."
Obama defending a "right to privacy" is the joke of the century.

White trash romance, or beware of women named Tree:

Florida man says that a first dated ended with him being beaten, forced to strip at gun point, robbed and then left in a cow pasture.

A Flagler County Sheriff’s Office case report obtained by NBC News indicated that 34-year-old Shaun Paul Williams was found naked and bloodied on State Road 100 in Bunnell. Williams told deputies that he had met a woman named “Tree” about two weeks ago in Dayton and agreed to go out on June 14.

But instead of going to a home, the brother instructed the woman to stop at an “empty cow pasture.” Williams said that he exited the vehicle to urinate and was struck in the head with a “hard metal object.”

“Give me all your money and your clothes,” one of the men told him.

“Are you serious?” Williams replied.

Williams opened his eyes to find a semiautomatic pistol pointed at his head. He handed over about $200 in cash, a gray tank top, black Dickie shorts and a pair DC sneakers. The bandits also made off with his DC Straight Talk pre-paid cellular phone and Florida driver’s license.

<quoted text>ObamaCare Could Result in $250 Billion Tax Fraud. ObamaCare really is the gift that keeps on giving. And giving. And I do mean “gift” in the German sense of poison.
Under the Affordable Care Act, premium subsidies—tax credits in ObamaCare designed to defray the cost of purchasing health insurance—will go to some seven million tax filers and flow to households earning as much as $94,000 a year.
The credits are both advanceable and refundable, meaning the IRS will pay them first and verify the claims for them later, what some call “pay and chase.”
Look at the Earned Income Tax Credit. Whether you like this refundable credit or not, the Treasury Department’s inspector general for tax administration reported in April that improper payments account for 21% to 25% of total EITC payments in 2012.
The wealth redistribution train never stops. We’re entering a red reality where the system exists only to be gamed. The only reason anyone is excited about O'bama care is they figure they will be able to scam the system.
One small correction. You have to estimate next year's income. For those not on a fixed salary this will be a nightmare!!! The 'tax credit' will be paid to the insurance companies from the federal government not the taxpayer. Also, if the 'tax credit' is deemed more than was required, due to more than reported income, then the taxpayer not the insurance company will be required to repay the overage.

Euthanasia for children nears approval by Belgian Parliament; doctors to mass-euthanize children and Alzheimer's patients
June 18, 2013
A proposed law on the verge of approval by the Belgium parliament would allow children to decide for themselves whether they should be euthanized ("killed") by medical personnel.
Currently, Belgian law limits euthanasia to persons 18 and older, but with the rise of autistic children thanks to biopesticides, GMOs and vaccines, nations are increasingly trying to figure out what to do with all these children who have been permanently damaged by the medical and biotech industries...
http://vaticproject.blogspot.com/
Remember how they used to talk about "the population explosion, the population explosion"...it was every day, every where-all over the place-that stopped when O'bamacare was passed-they have a plan.

The Birth Defects Scandal No One Is Talking About
Serious adverse drug events have increased by 90 per cent over the past four years. That's more than 100,000 cases per year over what the American Food and Drug Administration (FDA) considered "normal" back in 2008.

That's a major cause for concern.

But it doesn't stop there... Hidden among those hundreds and thousands of serious adverse effects, are other frightening numbers. They carry a silent warning that needs to become an urgent, thunderous warning immediately.

Most vulnerable among us

The risks of prescription drugs are well documented — except to the single most vulnerable group — unborn children.

The reason why is obvious. It would be unethical to subject mother and foetus to powerful drugs that could complicate a pregnancy or harm a child with permanent birth defects.

Yet, doctors regularly prescribe drugs to pregnant women. Just look at these shocking numbers…

* Seven in 10 pregnant women in the US alone take at least one prescription drug.

* The FDA admits that prescription drug use during pregnancy causes more than 15,000 birth defects every year!

However, the use of multiple pharmaceuticals has become such an ordinary thing that doctors seem to assume that unborn children will be fine.

Write the prescription and have a good day!(Fingers crossed!)

I think if doctors didn't assure their pregnant patients it's safe to take drugs, most of them would never consider it. After all, most of them wouldn't think of giving their toddlers drugs that had never been tested on children.

So unless a drug is needed to save a mother's life, why would she even consider giving it to her unborn baby?

She never would, obviously... and her doctor shouldn't either.

If you know anyone who's expecting (or trying), please warn them. At least fifteen thousand lives (every single year) are depending on it!

And one more thing-in this country, women get ultra-sounds...it is under the guise of seeing your baby in the womb. The damage caused by ultra-sound is horrific--but science does it under the guise of "look at your baby".
http://www.naturalchild.org/research/yale_ult...

Countries around the world do not allow ultra-sound on babies. They know the damage-what is wrong with America?
