You are right. They damn the very people they themselves are probably more like. The unfortunate. I am grateful to God everyday for my blessings and my Christian upbringing in living life and doing what Jesus taught us to do. I would never step over the homeless or deny a child food like they do. I am comfortable in my own skin and proud of my accomplishments. The strong federal union was cut deep by the likes of turtle man, his labor secretary wife Chao, bush/cheney/rumsfield with the privatization of federal jobs in lieu of their BIG CORPS like Haliburton etc..cut Veterans jobs which was the intent of civil service, cut cost of living raises while they enjoyed their self voted raises, furloughs never include them, though they are in actuality civil servants themselves. Those federal unions also fought for the state employees and their right to work and unionize. Unions were always the watchdog of gov't and they didn't like that they watched closely and defended those rights for equal pay, safe working conditions, fair treatment, women's rights, worker's rights, disabled, veteran's, senior citizens rights etc... they hated that and did as much to disect the unions and privotize federal jobs because of it. They don't even require that an AMERICAN company bid for those gov't tax dollars. Didn't save the gov't any money, cost them more and most of that tax money goes to a foreign country. That offended me most. Wonder how many the likes of turtleman and the romneys out there have interest in such companies? That's why they hate the UNIONS, EPA, OSHA, EEOC and every organization watchdogging the government. I know a lot about Unions and Gov't officials and how they work. I seen the biggest change when President Clinton left office with a surplus, life was good, lots of jobs, construction, progress etc....and then we got BUSH jr, but it was Cheney/Rumsfield that ran the country into the ground and involved us in TWO wars. He was just their goofy lovable boylike puppet that stood in front of the podium. No doubt in my mind. I never disrespected him like they do President Obama with trash photos and vile comments. I was brought up to respect OUR COMMANDER IN CHIEF no matter who he was and I have. I loved Laura. I am glad I seen up front and personal so I don't buy into this frightwinged rush/beck teabagging mentality. I was born a Democrat and I will die one because...<quoted text>
No doubt!! Republicans can't stand it when a democrat is financially stable. It really gets to them, especially when it's union backed. I'm guessing the government retirement is pretty good too.
Sad thing about the republican dolts here, they have no clue about the benefits those elected officials get. The republicans go on and on about cutting government benefits for employees, yet theirs are still the best. Just sad these people are too dumb to have a grasp of reality.
It's smooth sailing for you and I as these dumb educated republicans hope for that big dream of being successful and have nothing but a dead end job, a dead end life, and a dead end Internet persona that they try to pass off as their real life.
Just a shame that its so transparent and we see it all.
That's why republicans love low information voters such as these.... Easy pickins!
Repukes/teabagger = themselves,$$$$$$$, and BIG CORPS
DEMS = People
Simple as that.
McConnell voted for the initial War in Iraq
McConnell remains one of the strongest supporters of the Iraq War
(Yet the man responsible for 9/11 was in Afghanistan and there were no WMD).
In his fifth term now, McConnell has an approval rating in Kentucky of 36 percent. Silent but sullen, most of his own party doesn't really like him. The state's Democrats, who still control the governorship and the lower house, positively despise the man.
