Thank goodness because their only purpose no longer has any purpose except to fund the Democrats and suck money out of taxpayers.

Maybe Obamacare will get rid of unions altogether...sort of like pouring salt on leeches.

We have laws in place that protect all workers now.

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.

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.
Demokrats defending the IRS and Obama bin Lying will be an excellent campaign strategy in 2014

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.
Get off the board and go picket them then. You are only picking on Walmart because they are the biggest. Why not pick on Target? does the bulls eye scare you? ROTFLMAO.

Totally agree! Buy produce at local growers stands. Tomatoes are .79 a pound; at Publix, they're $1.95 a pound. Same tomatoes.
People are just lazy and pay. The local store doesn't get to keep the sales tax, that's pure profit on top of everything else.
Costco works with a 15% markup across the board, has the highest paid employees, with benefits and only a 5% turnover rate. Their philosophy is; a happy employee increases sales.

The Attorney Registration and Disciplinary Commission of the Supreme Court of Illinois list her status as “voluntarily inactive and not authorized to practice law.”
It further states that Michelle license is “on court ordered inactive status.”
You can see an actual photograph of the document on this website, you fucking moron.

Michelle is on a court-ordered inactive status.
Investigations into why the Supreme Court of Illinois ordered Michelle Obama to be on inactive status lead to an insurance fraud case.
Michelle Obama was scamming insurance companies.
Note also that the Queen with the Harvard Law degree flunked the Illinois bar exam.

Catastrophic insurance, at relatively low cost.
Which, by the time you can use it, by it's very definition, has very little chance of prolonging a quality-less life very long. Quite cost effective...for for-profit insurers.

Obama is the one pushing for war in Syria, but trying as usual to blame it on others.
the right wing neocons were calling for intervention long before Obama decided to capitulate.

We would not have the following to talk about:
Worst recession in 80 years
Housing collapse
Near Financial meltdown
Afghanistan War would be over if even needed
Iraq War
Stimulus bills
Patriot Act
possibly 9-11
etc etc etc
And after 4-1/2 years of Obama, we still have all of these.

The White House tours could have continued for two years using the money Michelle is wasting in Africa.
Next time Obama whines that something must be "closed" or not funded due to lack of funds this African trip will grate the American conscience.
The presidential family should have set an example and had a "staycation" like most of us have to do these days.

Well, I wouldn't eat Chinese pickles just because they're $2.95 a gallon. Probably soaked in embalming fluid. All the foods that you say you buy; the big logs of balogna for $5.00, the pink slime hamburgers etc. are all poisoning your body. You should't feed that garbage to your kids.
Vlasic pickles are grown in Michigan!!! Get a clue before you spout off!!!

Remember this when 2016 campaign comes around.
What a dilemma for Progressives. Clinton is having to "break" from Obama to improve sinking polling that has dropped more than 10 pts since Febr.
Progressives caught. Do they trash Clinton or do you continue to support the lame duck currently in office.
All the focus on Hillary is amusing.

She will not be the candidate.

She can never get her "facts" straight. Honestly, stating that the "international community was with Bush" is about the most ignorant statement someone can make.

In 2003, of the 15 member nations of the United Nations Security Council, only three other than the United States supported an invasion of Iraq....Britain, Spain, and Bulgaria. Three!!!

"I have indicated it was not in conformity with the UN Charter. From our point of view, from the charter point of view, it (the U.S. invasion of Iraq) was illegal".(2004, Secretary-General of the United Nations.)

Yet, some think Bush was a "genius" and supported by the international community. Geez.

What I don't understand is how these people seem to be tolerant of Assad's use of chemicl weapons against his people while they were appalled when Saddam did the same thing.

As you often say, this is a comedy channel.

A CBS investigative correspondent, Sharyl Attkinsson, and her lawyers are on the verge of exposing the government of hacking into her computer when she was reporting about the scandals.

They know who did it. It's the next thing coming down the pike. The dam will have busted when this proverbial "straw" breaks the camel's back.

Say, would Obama be considered a one-hump camel or a two-hump?

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.
Maybe in Florida. That's funny because in casual conversation at different WalMart stores I've found that not to be true. You've just been corn fed libtard propaganda till it's coming out your ears and choose not to research it yourself. Like Homer, you believe a libtard lie even after it has been proven false.
