Traditional supermarkets may continue to exist in some form for their meat, bakery, and deli departments, but cannot compete on other groceries unless they get their costs under control.

Walmart is not their only problem. Costco is also eating their lunch.

Smart consumers go to the supermarkets for the loss leaders, but little else.

"Public school teachers in Connecticut are not covered by Social Security for their public school teaching service. Teachers and school districts make no contributions to the Social Security system for that work and teachers cannot collect benefits based on it. Instead, the state provides teachers with retirement benefits through the state Teachers' Retirement System (TRS)."
It's another racket the left have with their unions & Democrats.
They will whine, but won't tell you the pension makes up for it plenty.
Essentially making them tax cheats and increasing the burden on others who pay Social Security taxes.

Keep in mind that SS is not a retirement benefit program, just a tax.

So, why is it you're talking about Bush?
Ok. Let's go over this one more time.
Bush isn't president. Bush hasn't been president for more than 4 years. Obama is president. Obama has been president for over 4 years.
PRISM didn't exist when Bush was president.
You're dismissing the point . Bush authorized data mining and collection of Americans phone records and internet traffic WITHOUT Congressional approval, oversight ,or any judicial review of the Intelligence-gathering process. Get it now? Or;are you going to argue now that Bush never did those illegal things?

Progressive liberalism in public schools goes way back. Now students can curse out teachers with no repercussions and violence among students in the public schools has become an epidemic.

Welcome to your worlds, liberals.

But GOOOOO unions! Right?

Costco is 'eating [Walmart's] lunch' even while Costco continues paying their employees higher livable wages and benefits. How can that be?!?:-D

pure BS.
so which of the right wing entities that were 'targeted' got their tax exempt status revoked?
none.

solved. or rather, nothing to solve.
Try to read a report or document. This is the IRS IG report titled
"Inappropriate criteria was used to Identify Tax-exempt Applications for Review"
http://www.docstoc.com/docs/156617899/IRS-IG-... #

Apparently the behavior of the IRS was so egregious as to cause an IG report.

There were deliberate delays -years- in processing applications of targeted groups as well as inappropriate demand for information.

You creating a bogus straw man to knock down isn't very bright.

Also if Galt is correct and assuming Carol was a teacher for all those years then she has more money than she knows what to do with.

Although she rents, has taken up another job and sounds like she is living paycheck to paycheck and hoping to God her husband's health holds out a bit longer while her diabetes goes more or less untreated.

She sounds like a perfect Democrat.:)

By the way, in most states it is highly illegal, subject to criminal penalties, for someone to call themselves an "engineer" unless they are registered by the state as a Professional Engineer, which almost always requires an appropriate college degree.
Way to "change" the subject stupid__and again you're wrong. There are various sorts of engineers, train drivers for instance.

My tea party neighbor retired from the state of WI where he worked as an engineer in the highway department-DOT or whatever they call it.

McVeigh execution: A 'completion of justice'

TERRE HAUTE, Indiana -- Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh died without saying a word Monday at the Federal Penitentiary in Terre Haute, Indiana, minutes after a deadly stream of drugs was administered through a needle in his right leg.

Was Timothy McVeigh Really Executed?

No really, that’s a serious question. For throughout the whole OKC bombing saga the mainstream media has ignored some serious inconsistencies.

'Progressive liberalism' gave you the New Math and computer science along with traditional education subjects--the new tools the younger generation needs to move ahead in the 21st century. Would you rather see students returning to the little red one-room school house on the edge of the woods with no indoor plumbing , no up-to-date school books or modern lab equipment for the students to share in advancing a greater knowledge and experience?
