Why don' we take a vote for electrd officials bank accounts to be frozen and have them live on minimum wage for their terms in office? They expect my family to live on it or less. I have a college education and can't find a job as there aren't any due to yhem sending them to other countries. What is wrong with "WE THE PEOPLE" when we pay someone an extreme wage to put us, their employer, on the street?

Here's what logical, you're a DA and I'm sure the "we" you refer to are all DA's too. This area is definitely not one of Bush the Elder's "thousand points of light".
BTW, you remind me of some old retired English teachers son.
still waiting for specifics, if you are going to hate everyone that has made better life choices, and that are smarter than you, you are going to have to hate just about everyone. What is not logical is that you never have an argument just a criticism, everyone can say what is wrong their are few of us that fix things.

<quoted text>lol i don't care how many articles there are .. what counts is when they were posted and how credible such articles really are... no you did not say "headquarters" but that is what you implied .. and by default are one in the same ... yah and you still haven't made an attempt to answer my question... why haven't they commited all the jobs if they think it's so profitable? and what retail store is it exactly that you own? maybe next time i'm in town i'll contribute to the economy instead of just taking my food stamps and my welfare checks to walmart.. lol not demonizing your place just stating the common thinking of the republican thought process... i never said i was or was not qualified... but i do know the facts.. and you can also know these facts with a little time and by little i mean minutes of looking for the right answer instead of the answer evryone says is right.. which is usually the right wing HA lol ..
I never implied anything. I said manufacturing and I meant manufacturing. Where a company manufactures the goods it sells is what determines which country prospers off of their business. We the consumer are the ones that ultimately make those decisions by our purchasing choices. As I have told you before, I am an independent. You keep saying I am right wing because I am speaking against your beloved socialistic democratic party. Please tell me why the articles you find are so right since you have admitted to not being a professional in anything you are talking about. The articles I found on the UK were from UK publications and that is why I said TIFWIW. You do realize that China completely ignores any sanctions placed against them because they know that there is no consequence for doing such. Obama has blocked China from buying American made products you mentioned which actually takes money out of our economy. China simply goes elsewhere to get its goods. So instead of China pumping, lets say,$500 billion into our economy making our bill to them $500 billion, we simply cut them off and still owe $1 trillion. For simplicity lets say China has devalued their currency to half the value of the American dollar. So it has taken $2 trillion Chinese yuán to get us $1 trillion American dollars. Lets say China decides now is the time to manipulate their currency up to twice the value of the dollar. Guess what, we now owe $2 trillion for the $1 trillion we borrowed. And you say that doesn't matter because we are the largest economy in the world. You simply are blind and refuse to look at anything outside of the democratic party prism and you are so brainwashed that nothing anyone says can penetrate the democratic fantasy land sphere you have around you. Your posts, for the most part, make no sense whatsoever because you are asking people to answer your questions in a manner that only fits your views. If they don't then you go after them telling them how stupid and wrong they are. Lastly, what business I own is completely irrelevent to this discussion so I respectfully decline to tell you.

<quoted text>i understand what your argument to you may mean ... but ... when you look at what has and is continuing to happen alot of companies are already doing those things .. the US house is ultamitly killing the united states postal service because they don't think there is a need for it and is making it pay billions in retirement funds up front ... and let me tell you that if "corporate" tax rates fall .. that means go down .. that means are cut ... and taxes for people making the money offf of these companies goes up .. that means increase...and tax rates stay the same for those making 250,000 dollars or less are the same.. and we have a marginal tax rate in our country .. then the first 250,000 of their money will be taxed at the current rate..other higher rates will be dertermend at a later date... so what is up with your way of thinking?.. there are VERY few individuals who hit all the income brackets in our tax system... and if those individuals decide that they would rather tank their company then let them... the reality is supply and demand and as long as there is money flowing and people to spend it then if the supply or service goes down in one store .. just go to one that provides you what your looking for.. people are more optomistic about the outlook of the economy now more than in the past few years and that is a good thing .. all top credible sources say that the economy is getting better and is coninuing and that is good news for some people maybe not to republicans because they llike these current tax rates and don't think that our tax system is fair.. but it is a progressive tax system that is very fair.. doesn't allow the greedy to indulge theirselves.. except for in their write offs lol .... no the individual does not have to posses healthcare if you looked at the bill at all it is a "tax" that is not inforced...but that is a whole new debate and one i'd be happy to have.
Look, you obviously don't know anything about how business works and that's ok. Everything you are saying is being filtered through the democratic prism and not how things actually work. It is exactly the reason I refuse to affiliate myself with any party, democratic, republican, green, or tea. When you are affiliated with a specific party, their veiws have a way of being forced on you. This is apparent in all your posts. Your unwillingness to look at any point of view except the democratic point of view is making you look uninformed and completely out of touch. You are talking about business practices to someone who's business has been in business for over 30 years while you seem to have no business experience at all and you are telling me that I have no idea what I'm talking about. Your democratic loyalty on this subject causes you to lose credebility on almost everything else. If you view business in such a incorrect and rigid light then one can probably come to the conclusion that you view everything in that manner. That's not a good thing either. As for your Obama not taxing those making less than $250k per year argument. The CBO said that Obamacare which was sold to the public as a $800 billion dollar bill has been estimated to actually be close to a $3 trillion dollar bill after we had to pass it to know what's in it. The CBO projects that the taxes in Obamacare will hit people making as little as $55K per year and families making as little as $115K. The average tax on Obamacare will be $1600 by 2016. If it is a penalty, you could argue that no taxes would go up, though it would be a very weak argument, but it is labeled as a tax. The trick will be how will Obama classify those individuals as making $250K per year? Or will he just say "This is all Bush's and the republicans fault"? I think the latter is the most likely because Obama has yet to take any responsibility for anything he has caused.

Just strikes me as funny that "know nothin" can ramble on and on with asinine arguments while butchering the English language and one damn spelling error is the only thing progressives can point out. Reminds me of the saying "Gag on a gnat, but swallow a camel".

Not necessarily true, Ole No. III has dinged people several times for spelling and grammar, just wanted to level the playing field a bit. BOC those times don't count.

Been on the course all day, tired. And it would seem that B-III is indisposed at the moment, probably in special session with John Boehner and the House leadership working on that fiscal cliff thingy.

Actually I seldom point out grammar, punctuation or spelling unless the person is being a consistent ass about something. With auto correct and grammar correction, I get more changes to my posts than corrections by my wife. My "their" error was actually an autocorrect change made my iPad and I saw no reason to correct it, you can tell from context what is meant. I really do not know if "noone" is no one or none, even in the context of the statement. And neither of my parents speaks English.
