There's nothing wrong with telling someone they won't be rewarded with a bigger monthly check for not practicing the same family planning that responsible citizens practice. But then again Democrats love multi-generational poverty because it keeps their base on the plantation.
If Obama REALLY wanted to do something about Inequality, he'd tell the baby mamas to keep their legs closed unless the "daddy" was going to marry and support this "family."
so you're all for Obamacare birth control mandates?

"Watch 63 years of climate change in one horrifying GIF
BGR.com
By Zach Epstein 23 hours ago

Global warming is still the topic of much debate, but a short video posted recently by NASA is fairly convincing. The 15-second animation, which was posted by NASA last week and picked up on Tuesday by Co.Exist, shows a view of the entire globe with an overlay that details climate change. NASA scientists analyzed data collected over the past 63 years by 1,000 meteorological stations from around the world, and the animation they compiled shows just how rapidly the Earth’s climate is changing.



The GIF is a consolidated version of NASA’s full animation that helps illustrate just how drastic the change has been since 1950. Temperatures in some regions have swung by as much as 4 degrees Celsius in the past 60 years alone.

“Long-term trends in surface temperatures are unusual and 2013 adds to the evidence for ongoing climate change,” GISS climatologist Gavin Schmidt said with regard to NASA’s findings.“While one year or one season can be affected by random weather events, this analysis shows the necessity for continued, long-term monitoring.”

According to the report, the average global temperature in 2013 was 58.3 degrees Fahrenheit. That’s 1.1 degrees Fahrenheit warmer than the mid-20th century baseline temperature.

“Last year, when the concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere surpassed levels of 400 parts per million, the amount of atmospheric carbon dioxide reached a higher point than it had at any time in the last 800,000 years,” Co.Exist’s Sydney Brownstone noted."

That's how it's done.
Making a rule that employers have to pay more for the same product regardless of value is Marxist.
Suppose there is a company just teetering on the edge of solvency, maybe working with as little as a 5% profit margin. Forcing them to pay more for the same low-level no-skill work will cause them to go out of business, then nobody has a job.
That is what Marxism does, over and over and over again without exception.
most successful people had minimum wage jobs when they were teenagers....

most welfare bums never had that advantage...

President Obama Takes Down Walmart By Giving A Speech at Costco

Peter Deier, an E.P. Clapp Distinguished Professor of Politics, Occidental College, explained why President Obama chose Costco as the venue for his speech,“Why Costco and not Walmart, which is a much bigger and better-known discount retailer? The answer is that Costco’s labor practices help reduce income inequality while Walmart’s labor practices widen it. Yes, Walmart is better-known, but what it’s known for is low wages and abusive labor practices….When Americans think of the phrase “working poor,” they think of Walmart. Many of its employees make so little that they are eligible for food stamps, Medicaid, and housing subsidies. America’s taxpayers are subsidizing Walmart’s poverty-wage labor practices to the tune of billions of dollars. The company’s low-wage business model contributes to its stocking problems, the low customer service ratings, and the retailer’s current decline in sales. Not only do Costco workers earn much more than their Walmart counterparts, but Costco’s CEO makes considerably less than Walmart’s CEO. So while Costco helps narrow the gap between the rich and the rest, Walmart widens it.”

President Obama was sending a not so subtle message to the corporate giant that is most responsible for income inequality in this country. The point of the president’s speech at Costco was that it is more than possible for a company to both pay a living wage and be profitable.

Costco proves both the Republican Party and Walmart wrong. A company can pay its employees well and be successful. Republicans always frame any proposed increase in the minimum wage as a choice between paying employees well and jobs. Even though research shows that increasing the minimum wage does not cause employers to layoff workers, Republicans still stick to this tired old talking point.

Most of NSA’s data collection authorized by order Ronald Reagan issued
The National Security Agency’s collection of information on Americans’ cellphone and Internet usage reaches far beyond the two programs that have received public attention in recent months, to a presidential order that is older than the Internet itself.
Approved by President Ronald Reagan in 1981, Executive Order 12333 (referred to as “twelve-triple-three”) still governs most of what the NSA does. It is a sweeping mandate that outlines the duties and foreign intelligence collection for the nation’s 17 intelligence agencies. It is not governed by Congress, and critics say it has little privacy protection and many loopholes. What changes have been made to it have come through guidelines set by the attorney general or other documents
http://www.mcclatchydc.com/2013/11/21/209167/...
Under its provisions, agencies have the ability to function outside the confines of a warrant or court order, if approved by the attorney general. Its Section 2.5 effectively gives the attorney general the right to authorize intelligence agencies to operate outside the confines of judicial or congressional oversight, so long as it’s in pursuit of foreign intelligence – including collecting information of Americans.
So now you libs are done blaming Bush and are blaming Reagan? did O'bama plagiarize a Reagan speech also?

You can find historical speeches, relevant interviews with presidents, Congressmen speaking on the Senate floor, Congressional hearings, press conferences and presidents speaking in public on you tube.
You can find videos of presidential inaugural addresses as well.
Chris Cuomo (ABC News) interviewed Bill Clinton on the financial crisis, and a clip from that interview was posted on you tube. There are at least a dozen more interviews with Bill Clinton by other news sources on you tube discussing other topics as well.
You can see Bill Clinton opening his mouth and saying Democrats resisted the GOP in reining in Fannie and Freddie and hear him say it with your own ears on that ABC News clip. The ABC News logo is quite visible at the bottom.
But, frankly, I can understand your pessimism in not wanting to click on it in your state of denial. I was rather shocked myself. It would probably burst your bubble.
Still waiting on you answer to your OBL craziness, Carol.

Let's review:

Care to answer to your conflicting stories concerning Bin Laden??

Or are you trying to avoid the fact that you have two completely contradictory bs lines about hunting him down.

Let's review what Carol has said in regards to OBL:

1./ Any President would have given the order that Obama gave.

2./ Bush couldn't be bothered with Bin Laden, he had other things to deal with.

----------

which statement is true, Carol??

You can either give Obama full credit for what Bush couldn't do, or say it was no big deal to get the very top Al Queda leader reeponsible for the 9-11 attacks on America.

It was more important to get Bin Laden than it was to get Saddam Hussein. Saddam never attacked America, Bin Laden did, more than once.

Let's see what sort of American you really are.This is not going away. Every time you show up, this question will be here to remind you of what a freakin' liar you are.

First of all, you repeated the same falsehood three times in a row on the same forum page. I actually read the last one.

Your #2 claim is false. I never said that about OBL.

But I did post what Bush said in a press conference in 2002..."If people focus on just one face of terror, they don't understand the scope of it. Terrorism is bigger than one person."

He said that after he said bin Laden could already be dead since they hadn't heard from in a while, hiding in a cave or on the run.

And, of course, bin Laden WAS just the face of 9/11 and did go into hiding but more dangerous masterminds of terror were plotting even worse things than 9/11 and were still out there - of which Bush captured or killed most of them.

Did I answer your question sufficiently this time? Because it will be the last time.
