Ask your psychologist "friend"(You should be keeping him pretty busy.) why unions are going the way of the dinosaurs. The answer to that will explain why you are so angry. Right wingers refuse to be held hostage any more. Also, the unreasonable union demands have pushed jobs OUT of our country. So, thanks for THAT. You libroids refuse to hold yourselves responsible for what has happened. That's okay. The rest of us know the truth.(pssssst......if others were jealous of unions, they wouldn't be on their way OUT. There would be more people clammering to join.)
This from someone whose lips are glued to the government teat so firmly and for so long they can only be removed by radical surgery.

Still screaming like a little girl that your free medical care, which we working Americans pay for, is endangered by the demand that Right Wing Wackos actually pay their own way ?

Still screaming like a little girl that Right Wing Wackos might have to pay taxes to pay for their fun little wars they love to start around the world ?

Hey... killing people and burning buildings and blowing up homes is a lot of fun and giggles for you, we know, but it costs a lot if money.

Pay some taxes, buy medical insurance, and maybe the increased self-esteem will overcome that self-loathing.

Doubtful .... but possible.

And Gore has made a bundle on his carbon credits scam.
Redstate, you've got to be kidding.

Gore’s Dual Role: Advocate and Investor
By JOHN M. BRODER
Published: November 2, 2009
http://www.nytimes.com/2009/11/03/business/en...

http://wiki.answers.com/Q/How_does_Al_Gore_pr...
Some people point to his businesses that he has developed since leaving political office as evidence that he is using the fears of the public about global warming to personally profit. Al Gore owns several companies involved with the carbon trading market that receive money from CO2 offsets. Some publications have included that he, "could become the world's first carbon billionaire after investing heavily in green energy companies."

Nations that are involved in the UN Kyoto climate treaty can use credits from carbon trading markets to fulfill the 1997 Kyoto Protocol that requires mandatory cuts in greenhouse gases. These markets and their credits have been widely used as a method of encouraging carbon reduction via the carbon trading markets of the European Union, Japan and other nations that signed the Protocol. In such a cap-and-trade system, buyers can purchase their offsets from a broker or through electronic trading platforms. In Europe, carbon trading has been a reality since 2005 and carbon offsets have been traded electronically on the European Climate Exchange (ECX). This is similar to Mr. Gore's carbon trading market company.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kyoto_Protocol

http://www.carbontradewatch.org/carbon-connec...
What is the Kyoto Protocol?
In response to the threat of climate change, the UN passed the Kyoto Protocol in 1997, which was gradually ratified by 156 countries, and later infamously rejected by the world’s biggest polluters – the US and Australia. The Protocol sets the target of reducing emissions by an average of 5.2 percent below 1990 greenhouse gas levels by the year 2012. Emissions trading, the main mechanism for achieving this target, was pushed by the US in response to heavy corporate lobbying. The arrangement partitions and privatises the atmosphere and institutes the buying and selling of “permits to pollute” just as any other international commodity.

Here on Earth, we saw Romney say those things to the "Elite" at his private fundraiser - on a recording made at the time, and distributed widely prior to the election.

Maybe you missed it -

rural, poor, Socialist Security, Socialist Medicare, Socialists Medicaid, and Socialist V.A., dependent Union County residents maybe don't have electricity yet to allow them to watch T.V.

Oh wait ... thanks to that Socialist T.V.A.- they do.

Face it-

Own up to it -

Union County is made up of exactly those parasitic, government dependent, losers your own Right Wing Republican presidential candidate think need to just shut up and accept your role as serfs.

Pretend all you want - statistically that 47% is Union County defined.

Hey... No wonder RWWs have no self-esteem - even their own leaders hold them in contempt.

- 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.

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.
