I wonder if that's the speech the Walton Family, Steve Jobs and Bill Gates gave to their slave girls in China that made them ALL billionaires. You Repubs just don't get it. Henry Ford gave his employees a 500% raise. He was called a Socialist and a Communist for doing it. A reported ask Ford why he did it. His reply was, they are my customers. The top have gained 387% in income over the past 20 years. The middle class that WORKS for them have gained 18%. Will these numbers ever sink in to your Repubs brain? Millionaire and Billionaire CEOs have closed 27,000 American factories in the past 20 years. Laying off 5.5 million workers. Will these numbers EVER be understood by you Repubs?

Rednecks are from Welfare Queen States.....

As it turns out, it is red states that are overwhelmingly the Welfare Queen States. Yes, that's right. Red States — the ones governed by folks who think government is too big and spending needs to be cut — are a net drain on the economy, taking in more federal spending than they pay out in federal taxes. They talk a good game, but stick Blue States with the bill.

Take a look at the difference between federal spending on any given state and the federal taxes received from that state. We measure the difference as a dollar amount: Federal Spending per Dollar of Federal Taxes. A figure of $1.00 means that particular state received as much as it paid in to the federal government. Anything over a dollar means the state received more than it paid; anything less than $1.00 means the state paid more in taxes than it received in services. The higher the figure, the more a given state is a welfare queen.

Of the twenty worst states, 16 are either Republican dominated or conservative states. Let's go through the top twenty.

New Mexico:$2.03
Mississippi:$2.02
Alaska:$1.84
Louisiana:$1.78
West Virginia:$1.76
North Dakota:$1.68
Alabama:$1.66
South Dakota:$1.53
Kentucky:$1.51
Virginia:$1.51
Montana:$1.47
Hawaii:$1.44
Maine:$1.41
Arkansas:$1.41
Oklahoma:$1.36
South Carolina:$1.35
Missouri:$1.32
Maryland:$1.30
Tennessee:$1.27
Idaho:$1.21
Does anyone else notice the overwhelming presence of northern "rugged individualist" states, like Alaska, the Dakotas and Montana, along with most of the South? Why it's almost like there's a pattern here or something.

Where can we find liberal bastions California, New York, and Massachusetts? California is 43rd, getting back only $0.78 for every dollar it sends to Washington. New York is 42nd, and one penny better off, at $0.79 per dollar. Massachusetts is 40th, receiving $0.82 for every dollar it sends to DC.

Go ahead and bookmark this article. The next time some smarmy teabagger tries to tell you it's liberals who are ruining the country and spending us into oblivion, kindly point them to the evidence that shows it is GOP states, not Democrat states, who are Welfare Queens. It is GOP states who spend more than they collect in taxes. It is GOP states who are out of balance, nationally.

See if they still want to cut off funding when it means no more socialism for slave states.

The Geography of Government Benefits
The share of Americans’ income that comes from government benefit programs, like Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security, more than doubled over the last four decades, rising from 8 percent in 1969 to 18 percent in 2009.

http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2012/02/12...

LINDSTROM, Minn.— Ki Gulbranson owns a logo apparel shop, deals in jewelry on the side and referees youth soccer games. He makes about $39,000 a year and wants you to know that he does not need any help from the federal government.
...
Yet this year, as in each of the past three years, Mr. Gulbranson, 57, is counting on a payment of several thousand dollars from the federal government, a subsidy for working families called the earned-income tax credit. He has signed up his three school-age children to eat free breakfast and lunch at federal expense. And Medicare paid for his mother, 88, to have hip surgery twice.
...
The government safety net was created to keep Americans from abject poverty, but the poorest households no longer receive a majority of government benefits. A secondary mission has gradually become primary: maintaining the middle class from childhood through retirement. The share of benefits flowing to the least affluent households, the bottom fifth, has declined from 54 percent in 1979 to 36 percent in 2007, according to a Congressional Budget Office analysis published last year.

Hey Cornelius Scudmister...
I told you Seal Team Six ere "Patriots" not Obama fans!

Mark Owen, the pseudonym for the former SEAL Team 6 member, said that the book, the original September 11 release date of which was pushed to Sept. 4, was timed to commemorate the 9/11 terror attacks. He recounts the Bin Laden operation in detail in the book, describing how a point man for his team shot Bin Laden as the terror leader peeked his head out of his bedroom. When Owen and his fellow SEALs entered the bedroom, Bin Laden was gravely wounded and unarmed, as previously reported by The Huffington Post, which obtained an advance copy of the book on Tuesday.

Asked about the book's release date amid an intense presidential campaign, Owen tells CBS News' Scott Pelley that he wasn't trying to make a political statement. Though he praises President Obama for green-lighting the raid, he says in the book that he and his team members were not fans of the president and he criticizes the instant politicization of the operation's success.

CA's Governor (D) Jerry Brown said few months ago, that he has no choice but to cut from poor, and let the illegals continue to stay in our schools.
Why benefits to illegals at all?

Mayor (D) Villaraigosa gets all kind of bribes but no one cares.

Legislators and State Senate all Democrats.

Managers (Robert Rizzo) of City of Bell, CA gave himself salary of $800,000.00 and used city money like his own piggy bank, gave huge salaries to everyone around him, ILLEGALLY increased property taxes...CITY of BELL went bankrupt and few others cities last year. CA has the highest taxes in the country. Of 37% working and about 17% paying taxes.

HYPOCRITES of HOLLYWOOD ...agree with Obama to increase taxes on rich, of course they don't mind, but taking their movies and others series to other states and countries, filming, to AVOID PAYING TAXES...

WHY THEY DON'T STAY IN CALIFORNIA AND PAY TAXES????? CREEPS ...!!!!!

Try to improve your health by incorporating good habits into your daily routine; if you sit at a desk all day long, find ways to stretch your muscles while you are seated. Since the December holidays are almost upon us, it is a good idea to increase your consumption of fresh fruits and vegetables. Before you know it, you will be tempted to eat nothing but rich, fat-laden foods; set some good habits now before you no longer fit into your holiday outfits.
Aquarius
You may feel rather agitated as Mars and Pluto combine in your house of money to focus on financial and business matters. Personal difficulties with family members or necessary home repairs may disrupt your day. Deal directly with problems no matter how much you would rather procrastinate. What you avoid today is likely to escalate into a much bigger problem for you to solve tomorrow.
Libra
You may have serious business to attend to this morning, so set your alarm half an hour earlier than usual. You'll need to keep your wits about you as power struggles are in full swing. Stick to your guns and adhere to your principles. The mysteries of life and death may be on your mind as the Moon glides through your eighth house of sex, money, and power. Remember, what goes around comes around!
Sagittarius
As much as the robust Archer would like to indulge, today you must mind your health. If you go out to celebrate the holidays, go easy on the rich foods and spirits. Too much alcohol and you might find yourself saying the absolute wrong thing to the right person, thus blowing what could be a perfectly lovely evening. Strive for moderation.
Thought this was a hoot for Libra! "You'll need to keep your wits about you as power struggles are in full swing. Stick to your guns and adhere to your principles." I think Jay and I are the Libras!

McConnell: Obama needs to end campaign, talk to his party
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said Tuesday that President Obama should spend less time trying to convince Americans of his tax-increase plans and more time meeting with Congress to try to work out an actual agreement.
With the "fiscal cliff" looming, the White House said Mr. Obama will do campaign-style events to try to drum up public support for his position that taxes must go up. But Mr. McConnell, Kentucky Republican, said the president should be using his persuasive skills to try to strike a deal in Washington, not sow partisanship outside of it.
"We already know the president's a very good campaigner. We congratulate him on his re-election. What we don't know is if he has the leadership qualities to lead his party to a bipartisan agreement on big issues," Mr. McConnell said. "The people he needs to be talking to are members of his own party so he can convince them of the need to act."
Mr. McConnell repeatedly has said the key to a final deal will be for Mr. Obama to put a plan out there and have it negotiated.

Hey everybody, check this out! wtf, frank, irape and Iloveithere are suing their counselors!

Four young men who say they underwent therapy that sought to “convert” them from gay to straight are suing a New Jersey provider known as JONAH, alleging fraud and accusing it of using dangerous sham tactics to try to “fix something that isn’t broken.”

The Southern Poverty Law Center on Tuesday filed the lawsuit in Superior Court of New Jersey on behalf of the men and two of their parents against Jews Offering New Alternatives for Healing (JONAH), its founder, Arthur Goldberg, and counselor Alan Downing.

The lawsuit alleges the defendants violated New Jersey’s Consumer Fraud Act by providing “conversion therapy” that falsely claims to “cure” gay clients.

Belgian man finds out his wife of 19 years was born a man

A Belgian man is battling the country’s court system to get his marriage annulled after finding out that his wife of 19 years was born a man.

Jan, identified only by his first name, told the Het Nieuwsblad newspaper that he discovered his Indonesian wife Monica underwent a sex change after he and his son heard rumors, according to the Telegraph.

"I brought her to Belgium. That was not easy. The Belgian courts had serious doubts about the authenticity of her birth and her identity papers, but eventually they accepted it anyway,” he said.“I thought she was an attractive woman, all woman. She had no male traits."
