ok black folks, lock up you daughters when whitey is roaming free. just don't lock them up in a school. if you do rape will be the least of their problems when whitey shows up.
No doubt about those stats.

BTW, one of the reasons anglo rape is so much higher is that negresses rarely say "no". That's why the birth rate is so high with so many multiple baby daddies.....

What subsidies?
You are unable to identify any subsidy paid to the oil companies.
And, a couple. I've reviewed many for approval.
Now, back to the issue:
If the business plan is to pay minimum wage to set a price for a commodity to generate a profit so the operation remains a viable business interest, and a workforce is available, why should that business pay more than minimum wage?
Rand Paul says they exist. RonPaul says they Exist, Boehner says they exist. Congress argued about whether to end herm.

Yet here you are still denying they exist.

If you can't figure out why one should pay more than the minimum wage then its no wonder you are just a pretend engineer.

Sure Carol, everything you get in emails is God's honest truth. The fact is that these emails have been floating around since 2009. Let's take these one at a time;
All non-US citizens, illegal or not, will be provided with free healthcare services.
False. That’s simply not what the bill says at all. This page includes "SEC. 152. PROHIBITING DISCRIMINATION IN HEALTH CARE," which says that "except as otherwise explicitly permitted by this Act and by subsequent regulations consistent with this Act, all health care and related services (including insurance coverage and public health activities) covered by this Act shall be provided without regard to personal characteristics extraneous to the provision of high quality health care or related services." However, the bill does explicitly say that illegal immigrants can’t get any government money to pay for health care. Page 143 states: "Nothing in this subtitle shall allow Federal payments for affordability credits on behalf of individuals who are not lawfully present in the United States." Current law prohibits illegal immigrants from participating in government health care programs.
It will take a federal judge about five minutes to declare this provision of ObamaKKKare to be unconstitutional.

Recent studies from the U.S. Framingham trial show one in four adults in the United States are deficient in this vitally important nutrient, and nearly half the population has suboptimal blood levels. But O'bama and his stinking liberals don't care: they are trying to shut vitamins down every day. Dick Durbin the democrat is the most heinous senator on this. It is his goal in life evidentally.
Straight from the horse's mouth. Obama himself. Liberals should watch the video if they don't believe he actually said this:

"Look, the first thing for all of us to understand that is we actually have some -- some choices to make about how we want to deal with our own end-of-life care. We as a culture and as a society can start to make better decisions within our own families and for ourselves...at least we can let doctors know and your mom know that, you know what? Maybe this isn't going to help. Maybe you're better off not having the surgery, but taking the painkiller."

Yeah, let's keep mom on painkillers instead of the surgery to stop the pain.

Again...I kid you not.

What do the Shi'ite and Suni Islamists have in common?
For one thing, both want to kill Americans and destroy the United States.
Obama reads from a teleprompter saying the US will beomce involved if chemical weapons are used.
The Assad government, the Iranian government, and the Muslim Brotherhood trying to take over the government in Syria agree that it is more important to kill Americans than each other.
Nobody knows who is using chemical weapons in Syria.
Putin won't miss such an easy opportunity to make Obama look like an ignorant buffoon... again.
Russia will send its most advanced anti-ship missiles to Syria.
Obama is stupid enough to position a carrier task force off the coast of Syria within range of the Russian-made anti-ship missiles.
What's Obama going to do if Assad sinks an aircraft carrier?
Geez did you have to mention Putin again? O'bama just pissed his pants. Lily should be sending those depends she knows all about to him. In other circles they are reporting the so called 'children' who were killed were up running around in the same clothes an hour later. It is the Pallywood that Palestine employs.

Former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean (D) on Sunday said Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) "doesn't know anything about healthcare" and questioned his suitability for higher office.
"Ted Cruz may be a very good politician, but he certainly does not know anything about health care," Dean said on CNN's "State of the Union."
The former governor called Cruz's plan for cross-state health insurance purchasing a "terrible idea," saying he wouldn't want Texas' insurance policies affecting Vermont's universal health care.
"So, these are crazy ideas from the far right," Dean said. "He's a slick spokesman and God help us if he ever does get to be anything more than the senator from Texas."

I am deeply angry about this because of the callous attitude of the three teenagers,” said Tim Fischer, a former deputy prime minister, in an interview with Melbourne’s Herald Sun newspaper,“[But] it’s a sign of the proliferation of guns on the ground in the U.S.A. There is a gun for almost every American.”
http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2013/08...
John Howard, who served as prime minister of Australia from 1996 to 2007, is no one’s idea of a lefty. He was one of George W. Bush’s closest allies, enthusiastically backing the Iraq intervention, and took a hard line domestically against increased immigration and union organizing (pdf).
But one of Howard’s other lasting legacies is Australia’s gun control regime, first passed in 1996 in response to a massacre in Tasmania that left 35 dead. The law banned semiautomatic and automatic rifles and shotguns. It also instituted a mandatory buy-back program for newly banned weapons.
On Wednesday, Howard took to the Melbourne daily the Age to call on the United States, in light of the Aurora, Colo., massacre, to follow in Australia’s footsteps.“There are many American traits which we Australians could well emulate to our great benefit,” he concluded.“But when it comes to guns, we have been right to take a radically different path.”
So what have the Australian laws actually done for homicide and suicide rates? Howard cites a study (pdf) by Andrew Leigh of Australian National University and Christine Neill of Wilfrid Laurier University finding that the firearm homicide rate fell by 59 percent, and the firearm suicide rate fell by 65 percent, in the decade after the law was introduced, without a parallel increase in non-firearm homicides and suicides. That provides strong circumstantial evidence for the law’s effectiveness.

so you tell me what the problem is. does that make it obvious enough even for you?
That phag Fisher would be best to start worrying about Australia; its out of control (and like everywhere, their "gun ban" didnt work)....

How else could they possibly know if we are obeying and submitting to the new edict from on high?

The SCOTUS has become a divided but politically-motivated and politically correct appeaser of the tyranny.
Unless the American people come to terms with who and what they elected, it's never going to change. Republicans can't possibly be any worse and, in fact, they have to be the better of the two parties considering the borderline oppression imposed on us by the party in power.
It's the American people who don't seem to mind that concern me.

What was once illegal is now subjective to decree.

Sen. Tom Coburn came right out and said it, "President Obama is getting perilously close to impeachment."

But President Obama knows he is immune to such scrutiny. His media lapdogs will make sure of it.

Since Obama has been occupying the white House a smaller percentage of the working age population is employed. Obama claims to be the champion of the middle class,yet the middle class has been decimated and the quality of our jobs has declined to a point that most new hires are part time. Obama has poured hundreds of billions into the pockets of donors at Fanny and Freddy and to leaders in the banking industry,why is the home ownership rate the lowest that it has been in 18 years? Why has the number of Americans on food stamps increased by 50 percent while Obama has been in the White House? Why has the national debt gotten more than seven trillion dollars larger during the Obama era,after Obama promised to cut the debt in half? Obama should be apologizing to the American voters for all his lies and corruption.
