Laughable poofball comment, considering Obama's Syrian debacle....

The Republican leadership is Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, and Marco Rubio. The others are just placeholders.

I think the facts are getting to you and you're finding your only mouse hole to escape it to LIE even more!
poor baby. so scared. so fragile.
Confused one-

You never challenged whether Dems were in power until now you are trying to change the goal posts. The decision not challenge if Dems were in power was a wise one as it is common knowledge and the onus would be on you to disprove. You have stupidly gave up this position so you have a bunch of research to do.

What you were demanding was Declarations of War. I assumed these wars-with the exception of Kosovo-were legal wars that had obtained Declaration of Wars or the modern equivalent of authorization of military use.

You are one who is challenging this. Show us were the Dems engaged in illegal wars.

Barack Obama’s new top economic deputy is a former management consultant who worked for Gov. Mitt Romney’s Bain & Company investment firm.

On the campaign, Obama repeatedly slammed Romney’s management-consulting business, and one of his TV-ads even suggested Romney was responsible for the death of a former employee’s spouse, who passed away after a battle with cancer.

There would be some reverberations at the lower levels but it would dampen quickly.
You say beginning employees as if they all get promotions. A lot of big box stores depend on paying a sizable portion on their workers minimum wage. They would not survive if all their minim wage workers stayed on & got raises.
The entire problem with the minimum wage is that it has not kept up with inflation.
In my opinion, you get what you pay for. A bunch of people working while they are seeking better paying jobs & who don't have any skin in the well being of your company. The turnover has to be huge.
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.

Those employees who show ambition and ability move up in the organization. Those who are content to round up shopping carts in the parking lot do not. Most companies are happy to have voluntary turnover of unmotivated employees.

Hmmm, don't challenge that it is terrifying to the citizens to have drones appearing at any moment to fire on them-just silly irrelevant nit pick?

So, do you think it is frightening to them?

I should have known you are such a poor reader I would have had to edit your post so you'd know what I'm talking about
"Today's Republicans in Congress only do what they think will help Republicans & hurt Democrats.'OMG OMG we can allow Obama to be successful as President " Even though it means this country can't be successful."
Dumbass dave towing the liberal line.
So, why do Republicans block programs that would help the economy? Types of things that they have supported in the past.

Why did no Republican in the House vote for the stimulus bill? I guess they voted not to help us recover?

Let us also not forget that white collar workers salaries are often pegged to the union workers wage.

It's all about wages dummy and after that benefits.

"Also of note, when you look at combined rankings of per-capita unfunded liabilities and unfunded liabilities as a percent of annual gross state product what you find is this: Nine states are present in the top 10 of both lists, showing large unfunded liabilities compared to their populations and economic output. Those states are Illinois, Ohio, New Jersey, Oregon, Connecticut, Nevada, New Mexico, Hawaii, and Alaska."

Not too many "red" states there, huh?

People who live in deeply religious regions of the country — the solid-red states of the Bible Belt and Utah — give more of their income to charity than those who don't.

Of the top 10 most generous states, according to a Chronicle of Philanthropy study based on itemized charitable contributions among people who made at least $50,000, nine voted for Mitt Romney in 2012.

You must admit president nobama does have ideas. Some of them;
- Break American, keep on increasing the deficit
- Increase the number of American's on food stamps
- Lessen the number of American's paying Federal Income tax
- Force health care coverage on folks who may not need or want it
- Empower muslim terrorists
- Refuse to pursue terrorists who murdered American's, i.e. Benghazi
- Ship guns to the Mexican drug cartels leading to more American deaths, o.e. Fast and Furious
- Cut the hours of part time workers, another result of nobamakare
- Assure putin that he would be more flexible when he won re-election
- Gut the American military
- Have sons, like trayvon, who would look like him if they assault whites or Hispanics
- Be against gay marriage before being for it
- Retreat from terrorist who attack our embassy's and consulates
Peace
