Mitt Romney’s comments on the 47 percent of Americans who make too little to pay income tax and “will vote for this president no matter what” are causing him some political problems this morning. But could they cause him any electoral problems? Is he really insulting anyone who would already be willing to vote for him?
The biggest non-paying states are — except Florida and New Mexico — solid red states:




Three of the states with the lowest number of non-payers are solidly conservative: Alaska, North Dakota and Wyoming. Two, New Hampshire and Virginia, are swing states. All the rest are solidly Democratic, including half of New England. All told, Obama gets 50 electoral votes from the “maker” states to Romney’s 9 — 17 are tossups — while Romney gets 96 electoral votes from the “taker” states to Obama’s 5, with 29 as tossups.

Now, granted, many of the non-payers in red states vote Democratic. As Columbia’s Andrew Gelman and others have shown, those making less are likelier to vote Democratic regardless of whether they live in a red or blue state. But in terms of the electoral college, many of the states Romney is taking for granted, and some of the states he’s working hardest to win, have the highest populations of “takers” he derided as part of the Democrats’ base.

Twin Cities janitors contracted to clean various Target stores will receive back overtime pay and damages as part of a class-action settlement reached this week with their employer, Diversified Maintenance Systems (DMS).

DMS has denied any wrongdoing.

The lawsuit, originally filed by 12 plaintiffs in Minneapolis in October 2011, accused Diversified of forcing cleaners to work seven nights a week without overtime pay or meal breaks required by law.

The complaint alleged that certain managers made workers, mostly at five Twin Cities Target stores, punch into work on certain days using “ghost employee” ID cards. According to the court documents, the “scheme” required the janitors to clock in and sign work cards using the names of former DMS employees at least one or two days a week. The practice meant that those who worked as much as 56 to 80 hours a week received only regular pay.

As part of the settlement, Tampa-based Diversified denied breaking federal laws and blamed “a rogue manager [who] may have ignored well-established policies without DMS’ knowledge.”

The terms of the settlement are confidential, said Brian Payne, a lead organizer for Centro de Trabajadores Unidos en la Lucha (CTUL).

What is known is that the settlement will ultimately affect about 200 to 250 janitors who worked in seven Midwest states. Most of the settlement is aimed at 55 DMS janitors who worked in Target stores in Chaska, Maple Grove, Savage, Rochester, downtown Minneapolis, Rogers, Lino Lakes, Waconia and Cambridge.

A Thank You note;

As you know, Freedom Loving Patriots like me and about 90% of the other Posters here that the Reactionary Leftists Project their Sheeplish feelings onto, do not care about what you do in your bedroom.

No matter how loudly the Leftist Sheeple shout "ya well what about your guy" in a majority of their posts, we know that Good People like you who deal daily in your personal life with Slewsie,Fattest Sheeple on Topix are mature enough to deal with the Awful Truth about the Sheeple and tier Childlike needs.

This said.

Thank you for all you do to try to rein in the "Flaming" that your Homosexual Lover, Slewsie engages in 16/7. Humanity has always had good people like you that make poor choices. As the Good Guy you are, you understand that Slewsie, the Lust Of your Life cannot control the Raging Need for attention.

Why you choose the Homosexual Relationship with her is none of our business, but I wanted to let you know that the sacrifices you make for Humanity as you attempt to calm her down when the Thorazine has reached its 1/2 Life, do not go unnoticed.

I assume that Slewsie's new name "Bush Whacking" has something to do with her "activities" here, while you are at work and she diddles herself here 16/7. It is your relationship, but know that you are a real good person in spite of your poor choices in a Partner for your Deviant Desires.
