Here's a great example,,,,,,,,,,do we shut down the universities because union professors want a raise and healthcare paid too?
Why cant we tell them to 'hit the bricks'?

The longest faculty labor dispute in the history of Pennsylvania's 14 state-owned universities inched closer a showdown today with an announcement that union professors have voted overwhelmingly to give their negotiators authority on short notice to call a strike.

Affirmative votes were cast by 95 percent of those taking part in the election, which included more than 86 percent of the roughly 5,000 faculty belonging to the Association of Pennsylvania State College and University Faculties, union leaders said.

A raw vote tally was not immediately available

Mitt vs Mutt

West Mifflin, PA

#42684 Nov 16, 2012
Every election is meaningful. But some, like Tuesday's, are pivotal. The choice between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney could not be more clear. Each man, as president in the next four years, would lead the country to a vastly different place.

Saddled from day one with the largest economic calamity the United States has seen since the Great Depression, Mr. Obama worked to stimulate jobs and business, stabilize a teetering banking system, calm a housing market in free fall and save a large chunk of the economy by way of the auto industry.

Along the way, he inaugurated a comprehensive health insurance overhaul that had eluded presidents of both parties and that now guarantees coverage for tens of millions who once fell through the cracks. He also accomplished a sweeping reform of financial regulations to prevent what happened in 2008 and reduce the vulnerability of average savers and investors to the risky gambits of high-flying market manipulators.

But the country's economy is not out of the woods. The jobless rate must come down further, federal deficits and debt must be cut and American business must have certainty so it can grow and compete. These priorities remain on the president's plate and, given the forthright actions of his first term, he is not about to shrink from the challenges of his second.

His challenger is a walking, talking question mark. The Mitt Romney who was governor of Massachusetts in 2003-07 or even the candidate seeking the Republican nomination last spring is different from the candidate who has been packaged and marketed to voters this fall.

Does government have a role in helping Americans get health coverage or not? Was the bank bailout necessary or not? Should Social Security be privatized or not? Should Roe vs. Wade be overturned or not? Do humans contribute to climate change or not?

Mitt Romney has answered these questions and others both ways. Which one would we find in the Oval Office?

We'd find one willing to cut taxes, even for the wealthy, while the nation needs to raise revenue. We'd find one eager to spend more on the military -- even more than the Defense Department wants -- while the nation needs to reduce spending. We'd find one planning to end Medicare as we know it and jeopardize its promise to most pre-retired Americans.

The choice is clear. Barack Obama wants to lead the country out of its morass and deserves the support of all Americans. His challenger is a man of shifting convictions, save for one core belief -- that he should be president. In America that's not enough, no matter the size of one's checkbook.

Conservatives argue that the government shouldn't be responsible for helping so many American families as much as it does, and liberals argue those families need help paying for education, health insurance, and even food, rent and utilities.

These shifts have taken place as the super-wealthy owners of multinational corporations have increased their wealth exponentially while cutting pensions, salaries, wages, and benefits far, far below the living wage, and often far below the poverty line. The private sector has eschewed the responsibility they once patriotically carried of respecting America's superior workers, a responsibility once forced on them by labor unions, which is a far cry from a voracious government looking to expand for its own sake.

Corporations no longer have a threat from unions to keep them in line by challenging their corporate interest to exploit their workers, and corporations nearly won the presidency which would have been an even more decisive victory against what few regulations the government (the only entity left capable of curbing corporations) wields.

Sen.-elect Ted Cruz, Texas
The Texas Republican moved beyond the '''gifts'' comment to criticize Romney for failing to give voters a reason to vote Republican. And Romney got a little too close to President Obama on their third debate, Cruz told the Federalist Society on Friday. "I'm pretty certain Mitt Romney actually French-kissed Barack Obama.''
Republicans run from Romney
Mitt Romney said “gifts” to youth, minorities and the poor helped President Obama win. Leaders of his Republican Party rushed to disagree, some vehemently.
Poor Mitt..........sniff*

Susana Martinez Rips Mitt Romney, Wants GOP Latino Outreach to Change:

The party is jumping ship..LMAO!

Republican New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez has her own message of hope and change for the GOP following Mitt Romney's defeat on Election Day.

The first Latina governor in U.S. history and the most prominent Latina in the Republican party criticized Mitt Romney's campaign rhetoric, her party's approach to the Hispanic community, and pushed the need for comprehensive immigration reform.

Martinez, who was mentioned as a possible vice presidential candidate, criticized Romney's most recent comments that said Obama won over minority and young voters because he offered "gifts" to them.

“That unfortunately is what sets us back as a party — our comments that are not thought through carefully,” she said in an interview with Politico and Yahoo News after the Republican Governors Association meeting on Thursday.

Martinez criticized Republicans as well, implying that her party isn't diverse enough.

EPA----Obama's bed partner.

AEA Responds to EPA Rejection of Renewable Fuel Standards Waiver

November 16, 2012

WASHINGTON D.C.— The American Energy Alliance President Thomas Pyle responded today to the decision of the Environmental Protection Agency to deny a waiver request by seven state governors seeking relief from the federal Renewable Fuel Standard.

“President Obama famously promised Vladimir Putin more flexibility after his re-election, but he’s offered no such flexibility to governors seeking relief from rising consumer prices in their states. Congress specifically authorized the EPA to grant RFS waivers when adverse circumstances made compliance difficult or impossible.The Obama EPA shows little concern for the hardships being faced by American consumers, and the denial of the governors’ request signals four more years of regulatory burdens, bureaucratic indifference, and politicized rule-making from this administration. As long as government mandates trump the free market, Americans will continue to suffer. Congress should repeal the mandate altogether and begin restoring sanity to our nation’s energy policy.

Although the U.S. Department of Agriculture forecasted the smallest corn crop in six years, thanks to this summer’s severe drought, the EPA is unfazed in its support of a policy that diverts nearly 40 percent of the nation’s corn crop into fuel. In addition to artificially inflating food and feed prices, RFS will continue to cost consumers at the gas pump. This is because ethanol has a lower energy content than traditional gasoline, requiring more frequent,$60+ fill-ups at the gas station.

In 1964, upon Johnson's request, Congress passed the Revenue Act of 1964 and the Economic Opportunity Act, which was in association with the war on poverty.

Johnson set in motion bills and acts,[64] creating programs such as

I was offering constructive criticism, Roger. The posts I referenced were just like taxnomore's garbage - and you know that too. You aren't even trying to be taken seriously here.


Next time you come across one of my posts consider why I posted it, who was it directed at. I get sick of scrolling past what seem like hundreds of posts from West Mifflin and his other ID's. What exactly is he trying to accomplish on here...answering his own questions and the yeah baby comments? Will it ever end? There has to be something very seriously wrong with him to continue this game.

I'm not speaking for taxnomore but at one time he posted serious questions and replies on here. Now it's like serious posts along with bobby64 and West Mifflin type comments added. I think he has had enough of the trolls on here and is giving some of it back as I've been doing.

Try asking taxnomore why he posts the way he does.

The act, bobby64 which is West Mifflin IMO has grown old.

I see my repetitive posts did get your attention.

It's time to stop this garbage and do some actual debating. Maybe we all should try and stop with the personal attacks.

I don't have this problem on other sites I visit. Rules are enforced, trolls are banned, posts are timed to cut down on the back to back postings like West Mifflin is well known for.

Rogers, you earned your right to be viewed as nothing more then a racist. Your not some one i could ever engage in a debate as all you see is color and tea bag propaganda. I have no problem being seen by your high level of proven ignorance as a stupid liberal, but I'm not any one you falsely claim i am, which only confirms your faulty thought processes or pure, plain stupidity. When your mental health is stable please give debate reason.i can play any game according to your rules. Your turn
