Unemployed & those woking hard but not making enough to no longer qualify for food stamps are "worthless".
Wow.
Are they more worthless than a pretend oilfield engineer whose salary is subsidized by the federal government?
We have an economy, that according to you right whiners, can't exist without worthless people to work at minimum wage?
If anyone working hard is making minimum wage, they just started working hard the other day, or maybe just this morning.
Anyone who works hard as a way of life will not be in the position you describe. They are in that position because they made the choices that caused them to be worth only minimum wage, if that.

Anyone who is still making minimum wage after two years in the work force is worthless.
I suggest firing anyone who has not progressed above minimum wage after two years. Perhaps they are just in the wrong place. If that is the case, then they needed to change jobs. Sometimes that's the only change that needs to be made.
If you don't like making minimum wage, make the choices that makes you worth more than minimum wage.
No employer should be forced to pay more for the same worthless product.

Liberals caught lying again:

"Can you rely on the weather forecast? Maybe not, at least when it comes to global warming predictions over short time periods.

Thats the upshot of a new study in the journal Nature Climate Change that compared 117 climate predictions made in the 1990's to the actual amount of warming. Out of 117 predictions, the studys author told FoxNews.com , three were roughly accurate and 114 overestimated the amount of warming. On average, the predictions forecasted two times more global warming than actually occurred."

<quoted text>Look at what Obama says that he wants in Syria--he wants Assad's chemical weapons stockpile either destroyed by a U S missile strike or by a negotiation led by Russia and France to have Assad's chemical weapons delivered to international control for eventual destruction. That outcome wouldn't be aiding al Qaeda in Syria , but keep Assad's weapons of mass destruction from ever falling into their hands . It would be quite a diplomatic accomplishment if Obama and Putin could pull it off and create new momentum to move towards the international Geneva I agreement at ending the Syrian civil war.
Further,it was never the Obama policy to remove Assad from power--that's what the neocons led by John McCain, James Inhofe, and Lindsey Graham were hoping to convince the President to do. So,'D B Writer, you're so ready to get the U S military heavily involved in another Middle East war before we've even finished getting out of the two previous two wars in Afghanistan and Iraq? Weakening Assad's military command & control and army would be playing right into the hands of the most powerful, best organized rebel groups fighting Assad that also happen to be the craziest, most extremist groups in Syria . The diplomat route to work with Russia and Iran who share our own fear and anxiety over the spread of chemical weapons appears to be the more rational solution and best option for success right now with the least number of bad outcomes .
What "international control", dumbass?

We're in only one war in the Arab world, the war they started with us on 9/11(2001)... well, that was true until Obama joined the war in Libya, which turned half the country over to Al Qaeda.

The recent developments concerning Syria are disastrous to Al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood. The only way to turn that around is for Obama to sabotage the chemical weapons proposal.

Now, what "international control", dumbass? Putin won't accept any terrorists in that group, and Obama will insist on terrorists being in that group.

Like I said, Obama has to sabotage the chemical weapons proposal to satisfy Al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood.

A "Putin-like move"

WMD conjecture in the aftermath of the 2003 invasion of Iraq

Quote:
Former Iraqi general Georges Sada claimed that in late 2002, "Saddam had ordered all of his stockpiles to be moved to Syria". He appeared on Fox News' Hannity & Colmes in January 2006 to discuss his book, Saddam's Secrets: How an Iraqi General Defied and Survived Saddam Hussein. Anticipating the arrival of weapon inspectors on November 1, Sada said Saddam took advantage of the June 4 Zeyzoun Dam disaster in Syria by forming an "air bridge", loading them onto cargo aircraft and flying them out of the country.

WASHINGTON (AP)- The gulf between the richest 1% and the rest of America is the widest it's been since the Roaring '20s.

The very wealthiest Americans earned more than 19% of the country's household income last year - their biggest share since 1928, the year before the stock market crash. And the top 10% captured a record 48.2% of total earnings last year.

Reid:'Anarchists have taken over' in Congress

By Ramsey Cox - 09/12/13 09:49 AM ET


Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid on Thursday said anarchists have taken over Congress.

Reid (D-Nev.) said Tea Party Republicans are preventing progress on an energy efficiency bill by offering amendments on ObamaCare and other unrelated issues.

Were diverted totally from what this bill is about. Why? Because the anarchists have taken over, Reid said on the Senate floor.Theyve taken over the House and now theyve taken over the Senate.

People who dont believe in government and thats what the Tea Party is all about are winning, and thats a shame.

On Wednesday, Sen. David Vitter (R-La.) said he would prevent votes on lawmakers' amendments to the energy bill until he's assured he'll get a vote on his amendment, which would require some congressional and executive branch staff to enroll in the ObamaCare health exchanges.

Its defund ObamaCare, and I guess as the fiscal year comes to and end thats what its all about, Reid said.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) also introduced an ObamaCare-related amendment that would delay the individual health insurance mandate for one year, and codify the Obama administration's one-year delay of requirements that employers provide insurance.

Lets delay ObamaCare mandates for families right now, McConnell said.Then lets work together to repeal the bill.

The Senate is working on S. 1392, the Energy Savings and Industrial Competitiveness Act. This bill is meant to improve the energy efficiency of buildings. Reid said he hoped he and McConnell could work out a deal to allow votes on germane amendments later in the day.

Have you looked into how the wealth is distributed across the populations in very well educated countries?
Have you looked at what your so-called "progressives" have done to our education system?
Wouldn't you conclude that, given your so-called "progressives" have destroyed our education system and replaced it with the most expensive education system in the world that generates the most ignorant workforce in the industrialized world, we are becoming less educated in general, and a natural effect of becoming less educated is the wealth will migrate increasingly to a smaller percentage of the population?

Want to have a more evenly distributed wealth? Fix the goddam education system you destroyed. Your only other option is to steal it from those who are still sufficiently educated to maintain a good paying career.

You created this mess. And, now that you're sufferring from what you caused, you want to steal to compensate what you're not worth today.
The only think that will happen with your plan is there will continually be less wealth to redistribute, until there is no wealth.
