It obvious you don't want to work either!. Guess when the minimum wage goes up, you can be the one laid off from work. You would be papy will pay everyone elses pay hike. Thank the Dem/libs for your lose. The conservatives, want you to work for a living. we'll help those who cannot work but you need to prove that you cannot work. Not handing out nothing to a bum that don't want to work.
OH, Why can you not raise two kids on $7/hr. When I started, I was lucky if I got, 2.25/hr. I survived, might I add without welfare.

Phone $7.00 month

This is why we could make it on the cheap
What do we pay now for this same stuff?
And you could pay your healthcare out of pocket pretty much.
Oh the good old days.

I've already made an objection to the substance and tone of another person's post, I believe that to be adequate and without need for a re-hash! If you're in need of a drama fix, go somewhere else, I'm sick of it!
To correct a small part of your delusion here, It's not my job to exonerate SSS or anyone else on the thread, certainly not you! Look, triple (S) isn't my personal, social or political ally, and she doesn't consider me a friend. She has castigated me for about everything on the menu, but she has the right to do it. I only celebrate in the sense that you and I, along with everyone else can do the same, o.k.? I'm well aware of problems we all deal with here, I'm hoping for a better atmosphere, but don't expect it!
I hope you will learn to feel differently. tks.
Willard, just to clarify...I can't say that I consider you a Friend, but I certainly do NOT consider you an Enemy! I'm just still kind of in the "getting to know you" stage, I suppose. But, I definitely don't totally dislike you. You've got a way of kinda growing on a Person. Before it's all said and done, we may actually become Friends...time will tell.:) If you behave! Lol!
if you say so

Its crazy how people turn against each other just cuz one has more money than the other, gives them a sense of feeling more higher up than the rest of people,and how greed can create such chaos when those people start wanting to make even more,(ceos and politicians and corps) while paying workers less, the republican party is trying to kill the middle class especially when single parents are living below poverty line while working full time jobs and wanting to strip social security and food stamps and any other benefit that helps those less fortunate instead of raising taxes on the extremely wealthy. i find that greed the kinda thing that creates most most of our problems here in the United States. we need a new increase in the minimum wage and it does not effect the jobs numbers in doing so it actually helps because people dont want to work all day and only bring home $280 a week and thats not enough to raise kids on and save money back its impossible. i voted democrat Mike Mcwherter and every other democrat that will run because republicans are racist and corrupt inside and out.
It has nothing to do with money on here.It is a diffrence of opnion on what's best for the country.Your have typical liberal way of thinking. Blame the Republicans for middle class hard living. Yet with the Bush tax cuts i was bringing home more money on my check and tax time i was getting $1600 to $1800 more back Now to educate you.Obama said middle class could NOT afford any more taxes,yet HE not republicans raised taxes on the middle class.Yes he raised it on the top 2% as well.Then he goes back and says well the taxes raised on the top 2% is not going to help. Now as far as racist and corruption goes both sides are guilty of that.Jessie Jackson JR is the most recient in CORRUPTION.Jessie Jackson sr is the most racist man ever. Now again you can point fingers however you wish,but have some common sense and facts before you do. Clinton,Kennedy. Carter all had corruption and Clinton lied under oath and should have been put in jail for that. If i lie under oath i will go to jail,same for you. Now if you like dems so much,move to California,it's full of liberals.Look at the welfare rate and how screwed up the state is. But again you can vote how you wish.

Deficit Reduction: From Pain or from Gain?
By Robert Borosage
.
The best way to reduce the deficit is to put people back to work.
For proof, compare the U.S. and Spain. The U.S. has witnessed slow growth since coming out of the Great Recession in 2009. The result has been a deficit that has come down from over 10 percent of gross domestic product to a projected 5.3 percent of GDP this year (slightly higher if Congress is sensible enough to repeal the sequester) and a projected 2.4 percent in 2015 (if congressional austerity bombs donít blow up the weak recovery).
Spain was forced into austerity; as part of the Euro zone, it has no control over its currency. Harsh spending cuts and tax hikes have driven the economy back into recession, thrown workers out of work and slashed basic security supports. The result: The deficit has declined from 10.2 percent of GDP to 6.7 percent, but is projected to increase to 7.2 percent GDP next year as the unemployment rises, tax revenues fall and the expenses of even a pared-back unemployment system rise.
Austerity costs jobs, cripples growth ó and makes deficit reduction harder, not easier.
So why ó oh why ó is there bipartisan agreement that we should focus on deficit reduction rather than jobs and growth? Why isnít Congress repealing the sequester cuts that all agree are dumb? Why are Democrats arguing about how to pay for postponing the sequester until December rather than just moving to repeal the idiocy and stop manufacturing new crises?
The deficit is coming down faster than at any time since the demobilization after World War II. This is a bad thing, not a good thing. It is hindering the recovery, slowing growth and costing jobs. That is the unspeakable truth about todayís reality. We do have a deficit crisis ó it is too small, not too big, and it is falling too fast, not growing out of control.
Let me guess. You been smoking some of weed " obamo weed " and drinking the " obamo kool-aid " ?

This post gets my weekly pinhead award and it goes straight to the top shelve.

Most of what you blame Obama for is FALSE BLAME and I think you know it!
Put the Blame where it rightfully belongs, no matter who it is and STOP making stuff up, just because you don't like Obama! It serves no useful purpose, whatsoever!
Fyi,You blame Bush.He's been out of office for 4 years.Get over it,Your blaming Bush for the SAME THING OBAMA KEEPS DOING!!!!. Borrowing money from China and continuing to do so.Fyi linda, Obamas borrowed way more than Bush along with every other President in history has. FYI you cant borrow your way to prosperity,thats common sense The moron in the White House doesn't get. When Bush was in his 2nd term,that when the economy went ot crap.FYI we had a democrap congress who was spending their way into the the defict. So you need to put the blame where it belongs which is on the dems and the tard in the White House NOW!!. Funny how old timers makes your brain mush!!!But we know it's not all your falut your soo stupid.Watching msnbc is rotting the brains of many like you

what have I blamed Obama For. The cell phone is in his era,, get real girl. It is still free and regardless of whether he did it or not,(the people who will be getting it and voting for him because of it,) they believe he give it to them. Just like Bush Cause the recession of 2008-2009. Regardless--he got blamed for it. So now Obama can take his dose of salts whether he likes it or not.@ You can too.

One other thing. You dem/libs have created a monster. Those who vote for him will do so regardless from now on. You or I cannot stop it.

Honestly, this is for you...and you're right about the Supreme Court on the "Eminent Domain" Issue, but I think there was somethings that came before that, if memory serves. I will find it and post it, just for you! But, in the meantime...regarding "Sequestration" and who wanted it...notice the quotation marks and Dates:
----------

"the President's Sequester"...

-John Boehner, February 2013
----------
"Set up a new sequestration process to cut spending across-the-board-and ensure that any debt limit increase is met with greater spending cuts-If Joint Commission fails to achieve at least $1.3T in deficit reduction."

-John Boehner, July 2011
----------
"When you look back at this final Agreement that we came to with the White House, I got 98 percent of what I wanted. I'm pretty happy."

John Boehner, August 2011

Id support any pro 2nd amendment right advocate, and someone who would be willing to look about throwing out the unconstitutional legislation that make it acceptable to convict someone of dui on circumstantial evidence. I slept in a vehicle under the influence due to the fact that Ive had 2 cousins die in alcohol related accidents and was not willing to drive and had to wait on my paycheck to clear the bank at 2am so i could get a cab. Besides the fact that I had a cdl and it means my livelihood. I would never drive, "ever" under the influence. Ever! Bashing a law abiding citizens to make a buck is why we kicked England out on their butts, "partly" in 1776.This will even effect my retirement. After Ive seen what kinda hustle and what kind of circus the legal system is, i have lost total respect for the system. And is hard for me to get worked up by anybody who wants to be grand master in the circus tent of TN! It sickens me to my stomach to see the way our country and state has become, there is no respect, honor or dignity anymore. And this concludes my rant as i work my hotel job at 33 waiting on my retired parents to come pick me up, for which whom i live with now...due to circumstantial evidence that made me homeless, and unemployable for 10 yrs after a safe 12 years in the transportation industry. Sad to say, im probably one of many thousands innocently convicted and life ruined by unconstitutional current legislation!!!! I wont even vote anymore, im sickened to that degree!!!!

Here you go shooting off without facts:
Congress did not vote in a change to the ""Emminent Domain" Law,"
2005---SUpreme Court Ruled in favor of a developer in NewJersey.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kelo_v._City_of_...
June 23, 2006, G. Bush issued executive order limiting the amount and type of land that could be seized. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eminent_domain
Obama put in the Sequester we are now going through. Do you think that everybody should just let you spend and spend and spend with out them saying anything. Obama is a failure so far.
Lets see, Obama just got that 14% on the Rich and now he wants more. Try to keep up.
Congress has passed two bills, held up by dirty harry, that would make necessary cuts, to get rid of the sequester and close loopholes among other things. Boy, Your brain washed bad.
Oh, the obama's buddies can pay no taxes but if they are a considered a republican business, they have to pay it all back. Lets, see, there General Electric, Apple, and Now, facebook that does not pay any (ZERO taxes)
How many are tea party people are there in congress (15-20??? out of 400+...
I have come to the conclusion that most (not all) the people the write in the thread are either related, have been related, are friends, or live within the same neighbor hood. Why? because all you do is fuss and fight, call each other names, and then tell each other stories about the big bad teapublicans that will take you house away, burn you babies, kill your dogs, put in a dungeon, starve you, take away your welfare, food stamps and ....and........ God help you cause I can't
Sometimes its better to turn away from a lost cause than try and correct it and lose.
Now "Honestly", lets go back and correct one of your "FACTS", you say there are 15-20 tea party people in congress.........when in fact the number is 49.
