Yesterday you made the point that people in these good jobs were whiners and should get two jobs if they needed more money to support their families. Now today you're saying these jobs aren't any good.
Will the real John Galt please come forward and clear this up?
Galt said, "sure, there are lots of jobs...mostly low-paying or part-time...."

where did Galt say that the jobs "aren't any good"???...

Be careful, he's got mental health problems. He will stalk you.

He's been obsessed with me for years now, saving posts from years back and constantly talking about I7 processor chips he thinks are a Computer Model Name. LOL

He's a very confused PowerpuffPrincess..

Last evening, he was giving his Teabagger buddy 'Whatever it is' a synopsis of my time here on TOPIX, as if she didn't already know,having beenhere herself for 5 years.

Only an absolute moron would use a ship getting stuck in the ice as proof that global warming isn't true.
You just spoke a mouthful.

Too bad it comes from the wrong end.

A ship-full of politically correct climatologists getting stuck in a too-thick ice cover they claim shouldn't be there in the first place is not just ironic but funny as hell.

Start laughing.

This idea you right whiners hold that the only way to survive in business is to f*ck your employees just shows how stupid you people are.
Fergit the minimum wage embarrassment.

You should be embarrassed writing this tripe on a blog and attaching your name to it.

That's Homer sock you have on your hand. You may want to take it off, Homer stepped in bear shit earlier and put on a clean pair. At least stop wiping your nose with it.

Is telling everyone "if you like your healthcare plan, you can keep it" hypocrisy or just a flat out lie?

Safes washing ashore seems a stretch. But__those who've been to Japan have seen thousands of unlocked bicycles left in racks while the owners worked, shopped, schmoozed etc.

That's not about ethics___it's about honor..

Home electricity prices virtually unchanged since this thread began__water not so much__water is going to be a problem going forward, particularly in locations where sewerage costs are tied to water usage.
Most other prices are up at average over past twenty years. US caught/produced seafood an exception.
People are trading BMW's Mercedes and other high buck foreign entries in on Jeeps, Fords and even some GM products__Buick's for instance.
This Obama guy knows what he's doing__he really does.
I rented a Buick LaCrosse recently. I travel a lot, and use rental cars.

Very nice car, easily the match of anything out of Japan, Korea, Germany.

The right wingnuts, esp. Nobraina completely missed the target when they attacked GM.

GWB and Obama saved th eAmerican Auto Industry, and all these asshats can do is whine and pretend Bush had nothing to do with it!!

Eman,

I am fine. It was a very bad joke-apparently.

As today will be very busy for me, I need a break from Topix until 2014-tomorrow.

groan in unison.

Hoping you have a Happy New Year surrounded by family and friends

Sure. The Magic Negro is the same evil azzhole that has the NSA opening your mail to install backdoor spyware into your electronic purchases.

"Your mind is all you have." ~ Sam Harris

Too bad him and his buddies are promoting taking away your full ownership of how you absorb and react to the world around you.

Will God make allowances for "choices" made by those who have had their very "mindedness" stolen from them? I'm reminded of the old saying "God helps those who help themselves." Somehow I don't think the author of those words ever dreamed of the technology that will make soul stealing possible. As far as I'm concerned it's an unforgivable crime to take from man what Nature so sublimely gave, individuality.

Obama has already shown his displeasure in the public having access to "other" choices when he attempted to censor the FOX news network. It is good that the other networks saw where that was leading; the censorship of ALL networks. I'm not surprised that Obama would jump at the chance to find a way to censor our actual brains, it WOULD ensure his groups' absolute control over any opposing voice.

Too bad the victims of Harris's dreams won't even know that they are slaves to an abomination. Your mind is all you have, enjoy it while you can.

Good thing they are down there proving global warming huh. I mean the ice is melting, no wait they are frozen in by the ice.
Doesn't that prove global warming??? Maybe not .
What say you uSmsinceforever?
Anyone who denies the FACT that the temperature of our planet is rising at a rate far faster than ever before is too closed minded to engage in a conversation about the realities of Global Warming. I'm not going to waste my time.
