Almost time for me to leave. I'm going to say this. You libtards are living in the land of denial. Having said that I'm going golfing tomorrow. After the monsoon of the last few days it will be nice to get outside. I do this with a heavy heart because Thursday is the anniversary of 911. I hope I am wrong but deep down in my gut I feel something terrible this way comes!!!! Let us hope I am wrong but these ISIL people are here and wanting to strike!!!!

5. Galt doesn't give a damn about Ray Rice, so go ahead and hang him...and turn he and his wife into welfare bums...

Yup the result is visible , Mrs. Rice knocked out and her husband dragging her out of the elevator. You are saying she slipped and fell?
It matters not a bit if Mrs. Rice was drunk or not. Is your policy to beat a woman because she is drunk?
You sound like the liberal loons, they admit democrats do little for the country but that conservatives are worse
You think he should be allowed to continue his NFL career? For crying out loud, let him go get a job, and take care of his family. If he turns into a welfare bum that is his choice.

Really? You believe that someone would rather flip burgers than learn a trade? People quit high paying jobs every day to take lower paying, more self-satisfying positions. Ever hear of self-esteem?

That said, there was a time when the minimum wage was raised every year to keep ahead of inflation. That really is the answer.

Fact is, in 2007 the minimum wage was increased by 70 cents an hour...the first increase in TEN years. In 2008, the minimum wage was increased by another 70 cents the last 70 cent raise came in 2009. If we had continued to raise the rate by 70 cents each year, the mimimum wage would now be $10.75 and people might be claiming that as fair.

However, past performance is a predictor of future performance and employees know if they don't get their $15.00 now, the next raise me be another ten years down the road. Add that $7.00 to the current $7.25 and you see where they are going with this. IMO, we really should raise it to $10.75 an hour with a provision for an automatic 70 cent increase every year thereafter. That will solve a lot of problems.

You have more than proven that you are an idiot and a political hack. You only believe that which suits your agenda.Kerry volunteered for Vietnam, he could have easily took the cowards way out like Bush, Cheney and you. I don't think for a second that you ever served in Vietnam, and I doubt very seriously that you even served. You with your actions and words have created this opinion. Much of what Kerry said was the sad reality of that God forsaken war. There were many atrocities committed there from my lei and Lt. Calley to children and numerous violations of the Articles of war...Both sides.. To hide or deny is to be blind...In your particular case.... a flat lie. The Swift Boat phonies were specifically put together to defame and ridicule Kerry thus ruining his presidential bid. Those money bought idiots were just that. They have since disbanded and blended back into obscurity. Most know now that they were paid liars. Do I think Kerry probably embellished a bit, sure I do but that wasn't that unusual in Vietnam and like most wars Officers get the most purple hearts, but to belittle him and his patriotism is far more unpatriotic than anything he might have done. Bush Cheney took the cowards way out and I suspect you did likewise.
You are a coward and a punk, your words convince me of that daily. Nothing short of the modern day Walter Mitty, just not as smart... Actually I think you are a pretty smart person, but sadly lacking in common sense and your desire to paint yourself as something special. Basically what I see is a social misfit that attempts to be accepted as an equal amongst others but has no earthly clue as to how that all works...Hell you have even admitted that you had to buy you a woman, and even that you had to go to Russia. Your auto biography would read as that of a born loser, that attempted to lie and project his way through life with tall tales and failing miserable with each passing lie...Kinda sad really. But if you had one active brain cell you would not want to ever face me with any kind of confrontation. I'm sure you have been punked many times loser. So from me to you GFY little girl.

Way to go, you come thru as expected. You smear, demean one who served in the US Military for s single reason. He does not buy into the crap you spew so poorly.

So al-Qaeda is the good terrorist group? Progressives never stop to think how illogical their comments are. Yes, ISIS split from al-Qaeda over a leadership quarrel. Both are terrorist groups.
We were not discussing whether one terrorist group is better than another, stupid. We were discussing whether or not ISIS is al-Qaeda. Bow out. You never have been able to follow a conversation.

Yes! There should be no minimum wage. It should be left up to the employer and employee to determine the pay. If the employer pays too little no one will take the job. Unless that is all the person is worth.
Oh, yea, sure. Like employees wouldn't exploit workers. If you believe we wouldn't have a return to sweatshops and factories paying pennies, you are a fool.

You're not going anywhere, so how can I be in your way? Your problem is, I'm going somewhere, and you wasted every opportunity you had and you're stuck in a worthless existence.
By the way, Obama is a communist. I hate communism. Obama is an Islamist. I hate what Islamist teach people they should do. Obama is an enemy of the United States of America. I am a citizen of the United States of America... which is another difference between Obama and me.
Wrong idiot, you are not a citizen, you are a paranoid obsessed fanatical out of control midget. Any one that actually hates an wishes harm to our president is first of all a moron with absolutely no connection to being a patriot. You are a clueless hater that should be deported along with your mail order Russian bimbo. It fanatics like you that will destroy this nation.

Kinda funny that these Obama haters haven't come to grips with the FACT that he has kept us safe far better than the two dumb war mongering fools before him. We all should be grateful that Obama is in charge at these troubled times as no doubt if the Republicans were we would be involved in 2-3 more wars and quite possible a nuclear war with Russia that no one would be the winner.
