What really fascinates me are the thousands upon thousands of American workers who vehemently oppose unions, even as they watch their salaries plummet and their jobs being sent overseas. This makes no sense, because - even if you're not a member of a union - those unions promote safer workplaces and higher wages.

I recently read an article about southern textile-workers who oppose unions, yet these nimrods work crappy hours for slave wages in dimly lit, dangerous mills.

It just goes to show you have often humans vote for ideals that are NOT in their best interest.

I'm also tired of hearing how unions nearly killed Detroit auto-manufacturing. This is patently false. What nearly killed the big three was those shitbox cars that they tried to sell Americans; unions were just a handy scapegoat.

Starting in 1975, the Big Three (and AMC) began producing some of the saddest excuses for automobiles that this country had ever seen; faulty and underpowered drivetrains, hideous interiors and body styles, and "chrome" that flaked off bumpers like the frosting off a pop-tart. These vinyl-roofed monstrosities were the reason for Detroit's downfall, not some guy getting a few extra bucks for mounting hubcaps no an assembly-line.

When a Nation is divided as this one is now, it is the President that is called upon to not only protect the nation, but to heal the division that afflicts the nation. It requires leadership and vision to restore a nation to harmony. It is the hallmark of a great President who can put aside party and idealogy for the sake of the nation, it is a great President who extends his hand to an political adversary to make the nation whole once again and get on with the nations' purpose. George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, possessed this abiltiy. The current occupant of the White House, does not.

During the Bush administration, there was the introduction of a project that gave subsidies to those who could not afford a phone. The basic principle of the program is that everyone should have access to emergency services like 911. There are a number of deaths that take place every year do to lack of proper communication, and access to emergency services should be a right for everyone.

It wasn't meant for the abuses inherent in obamaphone mass distribution as payment for vote buying. obama used it as a modern day version of what the old Pols used as "walking around" money in the ghettos and buying votes in saloons. Spin it whatever way fits your narrative, it is an aberration of the intended use.

Is this woman calling 911 in an emergency?

In New York State, EVERY welfare-recipient with three or more children and less than $25,500 in annual income qualifies for a subsidized Ford Focus. The applicant must pay $99 per month, but insurance, title and all other fees are waived.

This is inaccurate. Recipients are not limited to purchase of a particular car (ie Ford Focus), it's just that the Focus happens to fall within the cost-guidelines. Also, applicants are charged based upon a sliding-scale, so one person might pay $99 per month and another might pay nothing or very little. Most welfare-recipients are getting their cars for about $50 per month, including insurance and a $75 gas stipend.

All I know is Obama and his army of flying monkeys ain't getting my guns. No way. If he tries, it will be the start of the next civil war.

You are sooo funny. No more Ruby Ridge. One little missile and your little property will be nothing but a bad memory. Beginning and end of the civil war in your little mind.

Don't worry about Gun Violence, the President has put Joe Biden in charge of a Commission to investigate, promising the usual results:

What is this almost fanatical allure of guns? If you got a small weiner, no tricked-out assault rifle will change that.

I love guns largely because I'm a terrified white guy who believes way too many conpiracy theories. You see, I'm preparing for doomsday scenarios that will simply never happen, and - even if they did -my tiny brain cannot comprehend that a few assault rifles will not save me.

When I hold a big assault rifle in my hands, It makes me feel strong and powerful; that's important to me, because I don't have a lot of control and power in my life. My wife pushes me around pretty good, I can't hold a steady job, and I'm really not that bright, so guns are kind of like "strap on power" for guys like me.

Also, I use guns to bond with other dudes who also have to rely on exaggerated firepower to compensate for personal shortcomings.

If they ever do come to get your guns, you and every other gun-owner will:

1. Sh**t your pants
2. Hand over your guns immediately.

Who do you think you're kidding?
