The Price Of Inequality.
Wall Mart Demands Inequality..
How do they do it? Here is one example of how inequality is promoted. Location Washington.
1} Get A politician; Mayor Vincent C Gray worked very hard to get Walmart to come to town. His city council was not as receptive. City Council will force large profitable stores of $1 Billion more in profits to share their wealth with their laborers. Minimum wage of $8.25 would be adjusted to $12.50 per hour. Walmart threatens to shut down 6 of their planned construction sites for their Walmart’s expansions.

2} Testimony from desperate unemployed; “Those big people in government, they don’t understand my situation,” said Fred Reaves, 45, who is unemployed and said he would gladly take a job at the current city minimum,$8.25. Mr. Reaves goes on to say
“Eight-something, it’ll motivate you to start going to work,”“You can start paying some bills. It will help you to come off public assistance.”
A one chair barber said he would not hesitate to demand his daughter to get a job at Walmart at the lower wage.

3} Seek area with tax luring benefits; Councilman Mr. Orange opposes Walmart . What was once desperate times, seeking to lure businesses to the area is no longer the case. Minimum wage of $8.25 will no longer support a basic living standard within the cities booming growth it is experiencing. Walmart promotes improvised conditions for their laborers that are required to seek subsidized living benefits, food stamps, welfare, etc., within a city that is advancing faster than the minimum wage can afford. Mr. Orange cites the 2012 ,$469 Billion revenue, with a $17 Billion profit margin of Walmart.
Lure that attracted Walmart, is decades old and is now open to reform and negotiations.

4} Rally support; Mayor Gray vows to veto the Councils negotiations with Walmart. The desperately improvised are paraded in the media.
Suppressing the local businesses voices for leveling the playing field and the local officials that warn of the consequences of having their citizens mired in the poverty that is produced by Walmart’s low income pay for laborers. Eligibility of the improvised to be eligible for Medicaid , food stamps and housing assistance. Essentially taxpayers will be subsidizing the Walmart’s poverty promoting tactics.

A sliver of enlightenment is demonstrated by Willie Ford, 39, a carpenter, scoffed at the notion that Walmart could not afford to pay $12.50.“Come on, they’re going to make beaucoup money from this area,”… Mr. Orange councilman says they are negotiating from a position of strength . Denying inroads of Walmart’s efforts, to another large city to promote their poverty policies.

I said Bush invaded & you replied:
"It's easy to prove your posts wrong, even though you are a weasel.
For example, in the above post, you state Bush did the invasions. That is mere rhetoric from you bimbos. The reality is this:" then a link to Congress passing the authorization.
The part where you said I was wrong is where you are saying Bush did not do it but Congress did.
The word "Alone" appears no where.
Do you think Congress would have voted to invade Iraq Bush did not ask?
Do you think Democrats would have voted to invade Iraq if the Republicans didn't concede no effective oversight of their Marxist CRA failure?

Go back and look at some US history where the Democrats were right with Bush in Iraq. The Republicans gave them their Marxist CRA program that collapsed our economy, and the Democrats supported the war in Iraq.

So, tell us about those subsidies. You say they exist. How about you back your bullshit up with some facts.

What subsidies?

Subsidy #1:???????

Subsidy #2:???????

By the way, I want to see Andrew Napolitano run for president. I'm a federalist. That means I have some problems with Libertarians managing a federal government.
However, considering how radical this administration has been, we probably need something like a Libertarian government for a while to get us back to sanity.

Lewis Black tells Rick Perry: Go back to college,‘and this time, try to memorize some stuff’

“He may run for president again,” Black said of Perry on Tuesday.“If that happens, as a comedian, I’m thrilled, but as a citizen, I weep.”

O’Donnell also mockingly asked Black,“Are you now or have you ever been a Canadian?,” a swipe at another Texas politician, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX).

“No, I’m not,” Black responded.“I have too much of a genetic predisposition to irony and sarcasm.”

And don't even get me started on Walmart...
Of course, I understand SNAP is a good program and a necessity in a compassionate society such as ours, Homer.

What YOU don't seem to understand is we have a broken system. There are people who take advantage of those who don't know the difference between compassion and gullibility.

Explain to me why you are so against accountability and oversight and why you support an oversized government who can't do either.

And why you are so against eliminating waste, fraud, abuse and duplication.

I really don't understand.

If you think you just described poor people, you are a GD idiot. You described a group of people some of which are poor.
In the rantings about poor people, you & your right whiner buddies do here everyday, you include the working poor, anyone that receives any government help.
But hey, I understand your need to justify your hate of poor people so you make up the description you stated.
A new study by the CATO Institute, a public policy think tank, found that some welfare recipients make more “income” than those in the private sector.

A mother with two children in New York, for instance, is able to collect $38,004 per year in welfare handouts. This is greater than the starting salary of a teacher in the state.

And the problem is not limited to New York. CATO found that many states give handouts with sums greater than what workers earn in the private sector. According to the study, Hawaii is generally the most generous with benefits — there, a mother of two is eligible to earn $60,590 per year.

The study also pointed out the least generous states. A mother of two in Idaho, the state that came in dead last, is only eligible for $11,150 per year.

Perhaps most unsettling is the fact that in 33 states, welfare recipients make more than they would at an $8 per hour job. In fact, in 12 of those states, welfare recipients make more than they would at a $12 per hour job.

*frankly I hate these lazy bitches. Poor my ass.
If you pay them more not to work than they can earn by working, many will choose not to work.”

Welfare programs have ballooned since former president Lyndon B Johnson declared a “war on poverty.” Since then, a whopping $15 trillion has been spent on programs to help the needy.

Now, 83 federal welfare programs combined represent the largest federal expenditure. In 2011 alone,$1.028 trillion was spent on welfare payments.

Three members of the undefeated 1972 Miami Dolphins decided not to attend an event Tuesday honoring the team at the White House due to political differences with the president.
The Sun-Sentinel reported that Hall of Fame center Jim Langer, defensive tackle Manny Fernandez and guard Bob Kuechenberg skipped the event, which made up for the time the team did not get the chance to go to the White House because, in part, President Richard Nixon was embroiled in the Watergate scandal.
The three players spoke with the paper and kept their comments brief, but direct.
"We've got some real moral compass issues in Washington," Langer said. "I don't want to be in a room with those people and pretend I'm having a good time. I can't do that. If that [angers] people, so be it."
Fernandez, for his part, told the paper that his views are "dramatically opposed to the President's."
"Enough said. Let's leave it at that. I hope everyone enjoys the trip who goes."
Kuechenberg said it would be hypocritical for him to be there, the paper reported.
"I don't want to do that. I just don't believe in this administration at all. So I don't belong. Anyone on the left or the right has to respect one man's opinion," he said

Want health care?
You've already got it. No hospital can refuse treatment to anyone who needs it.
Or, what you really want is the same health insurance as everyone else paying for it, right?

I'll tell you how to get health insurance like everyone in Congress has: get elected to Congress.
How to get health insurance everyone who works their whole life has: get a fucking job and show up for work every day on time and do what you're paid to do while you're at work.

Problem solved. That wasn't too difficult.
What other problem can we solve for you?

Yes, most of you locos do:
The man who allegedly exchanged gunfire with officers inside an Atlanta-area elementary has a "long history of medical disorders," according to his brother, who said suspect Michael Hill was bound to "do something stupid."
"I honestly can tell you he has got a long history of medical disorders, including bipolar, and that could make you snap on a dime," Timothy Hill told ABC News. "My moms almost looked like a drugstore at one point. There was so many different medications he was on."
Police said Michael Hill, 20, will face charges including aggravated assault on a police officer, terroristic threats and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
Timothy Hill, 22, said he's not close to his brother and thinks he last saw him in January 2011. Hill did not disclose his brother's complete mental health history but said he was taking drugs for treating attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder as early as age 6.
Hill said his brother had once threatened to kill him. "I had a feeling he was going to eventually, one day, do something stupid, but not of this magnitude."
