See if you can get an answer to this...

What exactly is the "fair share" of income we earn that we should be able to keep?

Who is the idiot?
Do you think the poverty line goes up when incomes go up?
Who cares? All we know is an old f*ck like you has blood pressure that goes way up every time you try to think.

Perhaps because Putin is running US foreign policy.
LOL. Nothing could be further from the truth. Putin's team and public relations firm are trying to appeal to the American people because they have been unsuccessful in bullying Obama. Unfortunately for Putin, you can't put lipstick on a pig and, through the op-ed piece, Putin certainly looks like a pig.

Yes, because dramatic increases in wages cause inflation and because DemoKKKrat politicians have no purpose in a world without poverty, misery, class envy, and racial division.

Now, get off my planet, you child-molesting pervert!

The whole world knows Obama was played, but the idiot Democrats that are allowed to vote in the USA are too ignorant to figure out what just happened.

President of the Laborers’ International Union of North America Terry O’Sullivan emphatically stated if Obamacare cannot be fixed it needs to be repealed Wednesday at an AFL-CIO convention in Los Angeles.

O’Sullivan warned health insurance plans for organized labor are “under siege” and it will be a “big fricken deal if our members lose our health insurance.”

Despite White House opposition, the AFL-CIO passed the resolution calling Obamacare “highly disruptive” to union health plans.

As October 1 approaches, more and more employees lose their jobs because of ObamaKKKare.

The Indiana University is laying off 50 workers and sending them to a temp agency because of Obamacare.

Indiana University, which currently spends $215 million a year on health care, will shift 50 maintenance and custodial employees to an outside contractor that will hire them and will manage their hours. According to Indiana’s WRTV, the university is doing so to avoid paying for health insurance for the workers — Obamacare will require that all hourly employees who work 30 or more hours a week be provided with “affordable” health insurance.

Graduate students at IU have also fallen victim to Obamacare, as the university will be limiting the number of hours they can work to keep them under the 30-hour threshold as well.

Who cares about that? Its MUCH more fun watching you phags think you are "so close" to the free-loading brass ring, and then see it snatched away at the last second. More fun on the way too, as odumbocare gets de-funded, and then the mid-terms. How do the results from leftist Colorado make you feel about your phag future? Hahahahahhaha!!!

HArd concept to explain sometimes-althoughhhhhhhhhhh.. .increasing minimum wage in certain instances (like to those over 18 or 21) to near living standards, WOULD probably help in REDUCING hunger and poverty, and deflect AWAY from givverment dependency.

At least a little ...for those with at least SOME correct priorities anyway.

Patriotic Americans do not support Putin or Russia, but are nevertheless greatly disappointed that the President of the United States is playing the buffoon on the world stage.
.

I'm not disappointed. I WAS disappointed when it looked like Obama was contemplating a unilateral military action against Syria based on faulty intel. Now, I feel he is pursuing the right course of action by letting the international community take the lead.

FACT: The number of countries that have signed the statement blaming Assad for the chemical weapons attack, calling for a strong international response and supporting the United States now stands at 33, up from 25 on Monday.

We really don't know who used the WMDs (with complete certainty). Sounds like Assad, but there are doubts, so why risk more lifes of our kids? Are you saying US use WMDs? The Democrats claims Saddam didn't have them, but we know he used them against the Kurds. Confusing post. I'll catch up with you in the morning.

"USA since 1680",
Tried to pass herself off, as a lady,
Dresses real nice, but looks kind of shady,
Like a tranny in the alley down deep in Haiti,
She tried to save face for her man barack,
A faithful member of that muslim flock,
But Vladimir is here, an it sure werent pretty,
beat barack so bad, even I began to pity,
A lesson learned, so remember well,
When the referee rings that squared circle bell,
If you come to fight, better bring your nutz,
Or you'll end up looking like a circus clown putz......:-)
