He's so fos on everything. Of course he has no financial problems or health insurance problems, he has no problems at all, except that he can't get out of bed. The government takes care of everything else while he pontificates on here.

History is a Social Scince...

lets look back in History...

Hawaii...

Passed its own ACA...

terms...
Short hour jobs are 20 hours a week and under....
ESI-employer sponsored insurance...

"...indicating that over the entire period the percentage of adults
in short-hour jobs grew significantly faster in Hawaii than in other states..."

"...These findings suggest employer avoidance behavior in response to the mandate..."

3.7 percent increase in part time work after ESI was MANDATED.....

"Construction of the 1,600 mile pipeline is broken down into 17 U.S. pipeline spreads or segments, with 500 workers per spread – that’s 8,500 jobs
Keystone XL also needs 30 pump stations worth tens of millions of dollars. Each station requires 100 workers – that’s 3,000 jobs. Add another 600 jobs that would be needed for the six construction camps and tank construction at Cushing, Oklahoma"
appears to me the opponents and dunderheads are lying, something htye do over and over.
You are the dunderhead who keeps falling for the half truths of conservative media sites like wmd.

First of all, once a segment of pipeline is completed, the workers move on to the next segment. That 8,500 figure includes the same 500 over and over again. Secondly, pump stations are not manned.

"The Keystone XL Pipeline will use a series of 41 electric powered pump stations to move oil
through the line – 33 pump stations in the United States and eight in Canada. Situated at
approximately 50-mile (80-km) intervals along the line, groups of pumps and supporting
equipment are located in a small, secure facility referred to as a pump station."

The Keystone "Pump stations include an electrical sub-station and small enclosures to house electrical, measurement and control system components. The pipeline and pump stations will be REMOTELY MONITORED AND CONTROLLED, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, FROM THE OIL CONTROL CENTER (OCC) IN CALGARY, ALTA." NO AMERICAN JOBS.

From the same Trans-Canada news release where your statistics came from:(although, I'm sure your source was a conservative media source known for half truths like World Net Daily):

"Typical union-based pipeline spread/segment for Keystone XL would employ Americans in the following positions:

Keystone XL - Jobs per pipeline spread/segment

16 Quality Control
5 Laborer Premium
1 Environmental Coordinator
2 Welding Foremen
1 R.O.W. Coordinator

1 Journeyman
8 Foremen

If you right whiners are so interested in "buy American" quit supporting Republicans who continue to support tax breaks for taking jobs overseas.
Right now, Corporations are not taxed on profits earned outside the country until they bring those profits back to the US. So they don't bring it back & invest further in overseas operations. Romney's solution was to make all overseas profits tax free ( great plan masking it more profitable to invest outside the US)
The only allegiance Republicans have is to their pocketbooks.

Because they are US corporations.

If they don't want to pay US taxes then perhaps they should move to another country.

<quoted text>That might have been set up by the Zimmerman Bros as a way to extend their time in the limelight. George's brother is a real media hound having made dozens of paid appearances on HLN's Nancy Grace and Jane Velez Mitchell shows Fox's Geraldo and similar "justice" shows.
He's not being harassed here, his address is easily found, he's out and about and is still driving that same tricked up Honda Ridgeline pick up. With a ball cap and sunglasses George looks like many other pudgy Hispanic 30 year old men.
You may have a point; otherwise, he may have started shooting!! Why won't this creep just go away? Does he really think going on Telemundo and crying that he is homeless and has ptsd means anything to anyone? I just wish everyone would stop giving this murderer attention. Glad that stupid boxing or wrestly match was nixed; why would anyone want to contribute to a killers largesse?
