How on earth, did you possibly miss that?....
I probably missed it because it's a bunch of garbage. Had no idea the republicans intentionally blocked a bill that would produce over a million full-time jobs (not just for unions, I presume...) And they MUST be doing it because the "black" guy got re-elected. You know how racist Republicans can be. Nevermind the fact Obama went on national TV and admitted to being a racist, but hey, pointing out the fact Obama stereotyped white people makes one a racist, bigoted homophobe. Love how the liberal rationalization works. Yeah, we disapprove of Obamacare because he's black. Yeah, that's it. Wow. You people are something else.

So your boss only cares about the bottom line (# of views) and not the content itself. Boo friggin hoo. You were hired to do a job. Your ssigned objective seems to be measured by a pretty specific metric. Your boss only cares about you meeting your defined goal. Why is this a problem?

Oh, cause he does not care what content you put in your video as long as you meet your goal? Cry me a friggin river. Obviously your objectives are not in line with the objectives of the guy who pays your salary. Fine. Quit. Find a job that values your artistic creativity more than your current gig. No harm no foul. But lets not act like he's some bad person for not sharing or caring about your vision. If you spend hours upon hours of blood sweat and tears pouring your heart into a video and only 10 people watch it, you've failed at your assigned job objective.

Funny, I never hear Obama fans saying, but these are the laws of the land ... we should be funding them and enforcing them ... we are outraged ... the Obama administration is acting like a petulant child!!! It’s almost like you liberals think you get to be the ones who pick and choose which laws are the REAL laws of the land and must be enforced. Oddly enough, you seemingly only pick the laws that you like!! Funny how that works.
Well said, my man. Liberals are always at a loss for their own hypocrisy.

Obama has trampled the constitution more so than any other president in history. NSA program spying on EVERYONE? Bama supports that. "It's for our own good" he says. Where's the outrage? There was sure plenty when Bush enacted the Patriot Act. Bams has far exceeded that. Where's all the libs now?

Some Republicans have said "Let the healthcare law pass. Once everyone realizes it doesn't work and adds trillions to the debt and raised taxes over fifty percent on everyone, THEN we'll realize what a debacle it truly is."
I don't agree with that line of thinking. You don't let your house burn down to destroy a sweater you don't like. And name one government program that has been repealed because it didn't work. It doesn't happen. Once this thing goes through, there will be no way to stop it. No one is afraid that it "might actually work." It's too expensive, it has stalled economic growth because business are hiring fewer people for part-time work so they are exempt, on and on, yadda yadda, and countries that HAVE socialized healthcare, like Canada and the UK, those citizens HATE it! Canadians come down here for healthcare because they can't see a doctor up there. A couple Brits I have spoken with hate their universal healthcare. A majority of Americans don't want it. Yet it's gonna be forced upon us because the Libs in power know what's best for us, and we aren't capable of making our own decisions. That about right?

I guess the Canadians are too gosh darn polite to shut down their government to get unaffordable healthcare.

I can find a conservative site that supports MY view. But we should just go with the liberal site, right? No point in listening to the other side, is there?

Have you been to Canada? Have you spoken to Britons?

Didn't think so. But hey, you found a site on the internet that supports your view! Guess that's good enough for me!

IIRC the last 2 times the government was shut down there was a Democratic President and a Republican Congress and the only notable result that I recall was that Newt Gingrich quit
