<quoted text> Tet us not forget that most, not all but most, union contracts peg wages to the minimum wage. Minimum wage goes up it's a raise for union members. It's all about the unions.
Have anything to back up that "most".

Even the usual run of right whiner sites say "some".

And that "some" have clauses that have minimums on relation to the federal minimum wage. i.e. "no wage shall be less than".

I mean why would a union peg their wages on the federal minimum wage when it has done so poorly against inflation rates.

And then certainly only the low skilled unions (SEIU) would really care as their wages would be close to the minimum.

So "most"? doubtful. Some maybe. Some employees of some unions, more likely.

<quoted text>Why? Drones keep more boots off the ground, thus keeping more American soldiers alive. I'm a little skeptical about ALL those "innocents" although I'm sure there are some, but I don't remember any complaints from the right when "Shock and Awe" killed hundreds of thousands of civilians. Whatev, I'll be so glad when we're out...think it'll be a cold day in Hades before we let an idiot Connecticut Cowboy lie us into another war.

<quoted text>
Florida police chief has revealed his belief that Trayvon Martin’s killer George Zimmerman is a volatile character who is “a Sandy Hook waiting to happen”.
Steve Bracknell is the chief of the Lake Mary police department, which is investigating Zimmerman, 29, for allegedly threatening his estranged wife, Shellie, and his father-in-law with a gun on Monday.
In an email exchange with a Lake Mary resident critical of the department’s initial decision not to arrest or charge Zimmerman, Bracknell appears to agree with the writer’s description of Zimmerman, acquitted in July of murdering Martin, an unarmed black teenager, as “a ticking time bomb"
The 911 tapes needs [sic] to be supported by physical evidence of the alleged physical violence. Since Shellie and her father refused to prosecute, we were powerless to arrest anyone,” he wrote.
“Remember, we were the agency that wrote him a $256.00 [speeding] citation last week! No freebies here in Lake Mary.”
http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2013/09/13/florida...
(that's a lie that they can't arrest him without her or her father pressing charges; people are arrested everyday for way less than this)
arrested with no evidence???

this so-called chief should learn to keep his mouth shut

<quoted text>Show where al Qaida has taken over the Syrian opposition to Assad. You can't because al Qaida fighters in the Syrian civil war are still small in number compared to the overwhelming Syrians who only want their government back from a ruthless tyrant ,Assad. Also, nothing that the Obama Administration has authorized so far in small arms or humanitarian aid will give any of the rival rebel groups an overwhelming advantage over Assad 's regime that's being heavily backed by Russia, Iran, and Hezbollah--hence a stalemate . However , the U S threat of a punitive strike on Assad for his violation of the international chemical weapons ban has brought both Russia and Assad back to the bargaining table and brought with them China and Iran who now want what Obama had always wanted and that is creating a chemical and nuclear weapons free zone --a very excellent precondition for reducing hostilities and moving towards a political solution to ending the Syrian civil war. When many of the worst, most extremist rebel groups realize that they won't be getting U.S. superpower military support that could topple Assad then they'll have to come back to negotiations too. The best there is with the fewest bad outcome.
negotiations are impossible under threat of bombing and as long as Obama is committed to regime change...

the current talks are a farce...

The old troll Galt is just throwing poo on the wall.

There's some fighting between rebel factions in Syria with several dead just yesterday but there are too many groups to keep up with.

In Iraq, a Sunni mosque bombing killed 33 overnight North of Baghdad__weird that as it's been Shiite's that have been dying in droves. This could be a very nasty weekend in that area.

Some old lies from the same old right whiner.

Where in the stimulus bill did it state payments to union pension funds?

Since the stimulus funds were borrowed, dumbass, there was no "sucking blood out f the economy".
