- none of this cost-cutting is necessary as corporate profits are exploding because American workers are more productive than any time in history.
You just don't get it. A corporations prime responsibility is to the stockholders, and who do you think the major stockholders are, if you say the very people who make the decisions for the coporations then you've been paying attention.

Now where did that incentive go to increase wages and reduce profits.

The sequester was actually Obama's idea and the Republicans thought that was the first good idea that he had ever had, so they voted for it. That was like giving a bar of candy to a kid.
Democrats and Republicans always look out for themselves first. They are politicians and that is the nature of the beast.
Please shut down the government.

Please.

I want to be at the bank when those Social Security checks aren't direct deposited.

I want to be at Union General when those 82 year olds are handed bills that Medicare used to pay.

I want to be at the V.A. Clinic when the doors are locked.

I want to watch those folks thrown onto the sidewalks from their Medicaid nursing home beds.

Please.

I want the pain caused by RWW lunacy experienced so that we can finally leave their idiotic hypocrisy behind.

Mostly:

I want to watch these "Independent" Right Wing Wackos pay their own way and watch them try to survive without their hands in my pocket.

Damn...

You Right Wing Wackos are so obsessed with other people's sex issues.

Those that willing to support health care and place $1.00 per gallon of all fuel coming out of the ground and being shipped outside the USA and all domestic consumption of fuel whether it be for farm to heating fuel. everything that moves or is produced will be affected and that my friend is the only way Obama Care will make it. If you think you are going to get a bunch of young people to pay the price you are dreaming. One must remember they don't care different world now.

Now where did that incentive go to increase wages and reduce profits.
As a shareholder in numerous corporations, through my 410K, and Baird &Co., and as an owner of two LLCs, nobody understand better than me that businesses exist:
- maximize profits as much as possible - by privatizing profits, and socializing costs.

As an lawyer, I quickly learned that people conduct business as corporations and companies for only two reasons: terrific tax treatment, and the complete absence of any personal liability to the owners or operators.

Corporations and companies are necessary - repeat for our Right Wing Friends - necessary - evils that must be regulated and monitored because absent such regulation, by design, they will destroy anything and everything around them to: privatize profits and socialize costs.

As to the average "owner of stock" -

If you believe a person,

who owns a 401K,

that is managed by an "administrator",

that invests its funds using a corporate "advisor",

in a "mutual fund",

that owns shares of a "corporation",

managed by a board of directors,

actually has any idea who runs the corporation,

how much they're paid,

what their executive "parachutes" are,

and

whether or not the company is being run wisely,

you are smoking some damn fine weed.

Why isn't it in the MSM? Well, the short answer is because "World Nut Daily" is not an accepted source of information to anyone except wackos and folks with an IQ below room temperature.

The better answer, IMO, is based on much of what you said. Employers should not be in the business of offering healthcare at all. Prior to WWII, people were responsible for their own healthcare. When FDR put price freezes on wages, employers started offering healthcare as a way to attract employees while not breaking the wage cap - another unintended consequence of govt inference. As a result, now that most healthcare is offered by employers it is difficult for individuals and the self employed to find affordable insurance. They don't have the negotiating power of the big employers and the rates that are set by the insurance company are set high as a negotiating tool with the big employers. There is a place for limited government regulation - and this would be one of them, again IMO. Take employers out of the healthcare business, put it back in the hands of the individuals, make insurance companies compete for the business. AND have individuals get back in the mindset of paying for their own office visits, prescriptions, etc. and let health insurance go back to covering what they were originally intended for - catastrophic illness and accident. And watch healthcare costs plummet.
+1 very well stated. Many people don't know or understand how it came to be that employers started providing healthcare for employees. The government caused it.

It amazes me that Oh my and IO are perfectly okay with a man(probably a stranger) exposing himself to their unsuspecting daugher(s). WHAT????? I find that VERY hard to believe. If they are indeed okay with that, then they are an prime example of what is wrong with society. As far as I am concerned, they are willing to sacrifice the safely of their child(ren) in order to avoid "hurting some STRANGER'S little feelings." THAT is truly astounding. Disgusting.

That is an excellent point - Dems do stay focused on their agenda, while Reps are so worried that someone will say they're mean - get over it. To throw the Reps a crumb - they do have to try to get their message out past a mostly hostile media, the Dems can usually depend on the media being their little lap dogs and doing whatever they can to help. But, to repeat, Reps need to get over it and accept that the media as a whole will never like you UNLESS you quit being Republicans and become Democrat lite - McCain, Graham, etc. Stand up for something and take your message to the people.
We are still a center Right country - our elected Republicans need to start acting like they recognize that fact - or GET OUT OF THE WAY and let some fresh blood in who will have a backbone and do something. The ineffectiveness and sheer incompetence of the Obama administration should make it a cake walk for Republicans to take Democrats out is 2014 - but if they don't watch it, they'll blow it - again.

The facts don't matter to Libs. Here's another little fact that the Obama administration keeps ignoring.
"70% of jobs created since January 2009 being low-paying, part-time jobs." http://confoundedinterest.wordpress.com/2013/...
"It revealed that 81% of jobs created since March (of 2013) were part-time rather than full-time."

Facts undermine the liberal agenda. The libs on Topix are allergic to facts and don't like to be exposed to them. Makes 'um squirm.

Im not familiar with it, actually.
Really, it's only been headline news for days both here and around the world. We only have Australians calling for a tourist boycott of the US.
How about 'ole Jesse Jackson? When he was asked the murder of Chris Lane, he said it's "frowned upon". I guess he isn't going to march and demand justice for Chris, huh?

Did Obama call Chris's mom? Does anyone know? SURELY he did, right?

Throw those protesting criminals in Guantanamo with their fellow American haters, beat them senseless, waterboard them until they confess, them shoot their useless butts when they "attempt to escape".

Well-articulated post.
I believe it completely wrong - but well-articulated.
Let's look at unvarnished facts-
Corporate profits are at an all-time high - so there is no pressure on employers to control and reduce employees' compensation - only the desire to enjoy even higher profits;
- Companies have been reducing full-time employees for years to avoid providing their employees benefits just ask any Fed-Ex/UPS/Walmart employee - ObamaCare is irrelevant;
- Companies for years have enjoyed corporate welfare by requiring taxpayers provide medical care for their low income employees and their families because of low wage, no benefits, part-time, and even "leased" employees who are forced to use the ER and government clinics for medical care - ObamaCare is irrelevant.
- none of this cost-cutting is necessary as corporate profits are exploding because American workers are more productive than any time in history.
That's the New American Capitalism:
privatize profits and socialize costs creating all-time high profits at taxpayers expense.
Seriously.......your village is looking for you. And yes. They are bringing the white jacket with them.
