GM has increased its manufacturing capacity in China by an estimated 55 percent after the bailout, according to industry watchers.

i completely understand wanting and needing more money but your skill level of sitting on a stool saying "welcome to wal mart" and "can i check your receipt sir" doesnt qualify for a huge wage increase muffins. now go take some initiative and move up to bag boy. LMAO !!!!

IPAB: President Obama's NICE Way To Ration Care To Seniors
.
.
Can we predict the future of IPAB?
Over a decade ago, Britain set up its National Institute of Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE), a group of appointees whose pronouncements limit medication and technology usage based on costs.
Despite the endless complaints and numerous lawsuits by doctors and citizen groups in Britain, NICE served as the model upon which IPAB was based.
A Board of appointees like the IPAB, its role is to reduce health spending.
NICE has become a rationing Board, holding costs down by limiting available treatments.
Ninety percent of England’s hospital trusts are now rationing care by following NICE’s long list of “recommendations” that includes stopping access to drugs that prolong life or cure breast cancer,
stomach cancer,
kidney cancer,
macular degeneration (causing progressive blindness),
multiple myeloma,
rheumatoid arthritis,
early Alzheimer’s disease,
MS,
and osteoporosis that causes hip fractures and premature death.
NICE also restricts hip and knee replacements, cataract surgery, procedures for back pain, infertility, steroid injections and cancer screening like PAP smears.
David Stout of the NHS Confederation representing primary care trusts explained to the BBC that “the NHS faces considerable financial pressures and scarce resources have to be used as effectively as possible.”
Under NICE, treatments are routinely refused on the grounds of limited resources and the need to make decisions based not on individual’s or family’s choice, but on the government’s assessment of the benefit.

Has anyone this week been seeking out Mitt Romney’s views on the Gaza crisis? Have there been calls to put him on a plane and have him sit down with Benjamin Netanyahu or Mohamed Morsi, and sort things out? Hillary Clinton handled that instead, and we seem to have a ceasefire, while the urgent questions about Romney have been whether that was really him, photographed blurrily, pumping his own gas, or what he and Ann thought of Jacob imprinting on Renesmee in the new “Twilight” movie—which they saw over the weekend—and which vampire coven reminded them most of the Republican primary field. Last month, Romney was talking about the near-psychic bond he had with Netanyahu; that may have been nice for them, but it hardly seems to matter anymore to anyone else. By the time there was a ceasefire deal, on Wednesday, the Romney radar was alive to his trip to Disneyland with his wife and grandchildren, according to reports sourced back to park visitors who tweeted pictures. Has a candidate ever shifted so swiftly and unceremoniously from the realm of the auto bailout to that of Luigi’s Flying Tires? Looking at the pictures of Ann and Mitt sitting in the sun at the center of one of said tires, right where a hubcap should be, the tricky thing isn’t dispelling the idea that it was all a Photoshop hoax, but instead trying to imagine them anywhere else, like in the White House, or even on a stage in Ohio.

You cannot rationalize or converse with an individual who uses race as his only argument.

Most of America is way beyond racial boundaries, but the liberals want to keep blaming it for everything.

Their entire agenda is discredited if they would admit racism is not a factor in critical thinking peoples opinions.

The mass media propaganda machine has brainwashed them to promote the in-fighting and keeping your eyes off the real problems. Simple divide and conquer, nothing else, and weak minded follow.

A little more than two weeks after the election, Mitt Romney has not so much vanished as been rendered a camp object—an electoral oddity, like a button from a last-century race with the name of a defeated Vice-Presidential candidate you can hardly remember learning (Charles W. Fairbanks, John W. Bricker). There has been no decent interval for him and his campaign, no gap between rejection and ridiculousness. By this time, four years ago, John McCain and Barack Obama had sat down and talked in an office building in Chicago, and released a joint statement about working together. That didn’t quite happen, but McCain never really stopped talking, or even—as in the past couple of weeks as he has pushed and pushed, beyond credibility, his complaints about Benghazi and Susan Rice—stopped shouting.

No one seems to care what Mitt Romney has to say about Susan Rice. The main concern of people in the Republican Party for which he was a standard-bearer seems to be that he still plays any role at all. He embarrasses them. If he has a presence in the Party now it is an awkward penumbra. Even his moment in the headlines last week, when he was heard talking about how Obama had bought the loyalty of women, minorities, and young people with “gifts,” was as a disembodied voice. He didn’t even get to show his face when insulting the electorate. Republicans “don’t need to be saying stupid things,” Bobby Jindal, the governor of Louisiana, said in response. The implication seems to be that they really don’t need Romney to do anything at all.
