Former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney jumped into the debate over the GOP's future Tuesday night, warning congressional Republicans against forcing a government shutdown in their quest to stop President Barack Obama's signature health care law.

Romney addressed more than 200 donors on the shores of Lake Winnipesaukee at a fundraiser for the New Hampshire Republican Party, staged just four miles from the vacation home where he has spent much of the summer with his family. The event was closed to the media, but his office released his prepared remarks.

Romney, 66, warned congressional Republicans against letting emotions drive their decisions

Horseshit.

CEO wages and benefits are a negligible fraction of the cost of production in a major corporation.

McDonald's annual revenue is $27.56 billion.

The CEO of McDonald's earns $8.75 million, or 0.03% of total revenue.

If the CEO of McDonald's received no salary, each of the company's 1,800,000 employees could receive an extra $4.86 per year, or 0.2 cents per hour.

And without management, the employees would have no jobs.

Unlike the government, businesses require competent leaders.

<quoted text> First Lady Michelle Obama's 'Get Moving' campaign sounds incredibly creative and intelligent to the majority of Americans who like it , like music, and like being healthy with plenty of physical exercise. This 'Get Moving, America ' campaign is what I bet that Martha Reeves and the Vandellas really meant by their song, "Dancing in the Streets"! http://youtu.be/eQpbURSFaNU

"Last week, the state of California claimed that its version of Obamacare’s health insurance exchange would actually reduce premiums.“These rates are way below the worst-case gloom-and-doom scenarios we have heard,” boasted Peter Lee, executive director of the California exchange. But the data that Lee released tells a different story: Obamacare, in fact, will increase individual-market premiums in California by as much as 146 percent.One of the most serious flaws with Obamacare is that its blizzard of regulations and mandates drives up the cost of insurance for people who buy it on their own."
Lots of apples and oranges in claims of lower premiums.

<quoted text> Can you do math?'Bush 43 created 4.899 trillion dollars of national debt in 8 years! Obama created 4.939 trillion in national debt in less than 4 years!' President Obama gets credit for only raising the national debt 0.040 in 4 years over what George W Bush did in raising the debt over 8 years from a Clinton surplus to more than $4 trillion dollars .
Porkulus is Obama's debt, not Bush debt.

Your math sucks.

Turns out there's a Navy Seal who's been breaking into houses here about, not that big a surprise when you think about it. I followed him these last two nights and, sure enough he's a criminal. Know what I did? I nailed him to a fence and then cut his dick and balls off and stuck them into his mouth, he resisted but that as pointless. So i nailed him to a fence in the alley. He resisted this. So much for Navy Seals. Let you come to me. Come to me hero. Come to me... Like all american heroes they are cowards. I kill cowards. I kill americans.

Congress should not be in session for more than 60 days each year.

Members should go home and get a real job the other ten months.

Most economists would disagree with you in that minimum wage hikes fuel inflation which quickly wipes out the last hike fueling demands for another hike thus perpetuating the inflationary spiral.
In 2009 we were told that $6.55/hr was not a living wage and that it had to be raised so it was raised (federal) to $7.25. Now I've heard the very same people say that $7.25/hr is not a living wage and it must be raised to $12/hr. In a couple of years or less the same people will tell us that $12/hr is not a living wage and they'll be absolutely correct because of the inflation caused by raising it to $12/hr in the first place. Meanwhile, what that does to non-minimum wage earners is erode our own income and the value of our property which disincentivises the economy.
Your analysis, although absolutely correct, classifies you as a greedy pig unwilling to share with others and unwilling to bust your ass without monetary incentive.

Shame on you.

Those burger flippers deserve just as much money as you nuclear nerds.

Well well well, babbling to yourself as usual here.

Here's what I think REALLY happened:

You saw a cute fudge-packer sashaying down the sidewalk in front of your skidrow apartment. You followed him into an alley, negotiated briefly, paid him, and then tossed his salad.

He sht on you, just for fun....

Free trade is a large part of why Detroit is in such bad shape.

Unions have made it possible for working folk to get fair wages, benefits and good working conditions. They speak for those that would be oppressed by their employers. Ask a police officer or fireman.

Republicans want Islamists released
Two U.S. senators urged Egypt’s military-backed government to release detained members of the Muslim Brotherhood before starting negotiations with the group, warning of worsening relations “if Egypt is not moving to democracy.”
But Egypt’s interim presidency denounced “foreign pressure” in a sign of its growing impatience with international mediations.
Sens. John McCain and Lindsey Graham spoke after meeting with top military and civilian leaders in Cairo as part of a flurry of international efforts to resolve a standoff between the government and supporters of the ousted president, Mohammed Morsi.

McCain and Graham are Obama's Quislings, suckered into doing his dirty work.

Both are finished in the Republican Party.
