Evidently you write before you read and acknowledge. I believe I was talking about elected officials. I didn't refer to specifically Democrats or Republicans. I was referring to all elected officials. As far as minimum wage, that is federal not state. Maybe you should visit a law library in your town and study on government before posting. As far as relocating, why should I have to leave my home I pay for to accommodate the budget. Let them(elected officials) work for what they(elected officials)govern our wages to be. Did you get that or was it a little complicated for you to understand? Major corporations send business overseas and to Mexico to avoid paying taxes in the U.S. we do not allow sweat shops in the United States but our government will not tax corporations for products made out of our country and shipped back in. People that are NOT citizens get more help than actual citizens. If minimum wage was enough to live on and hiring standards were raised to the point of having to be a citizen before you were able to own a business or work here maybe some of our jobs would still be here. I worked at a company who ask for volunteers to go to Mexico and train their people so they could move our jobs their because they paid their employees less. Our government should tax the crap out of corporations who move or close factories down in the U.S. to out of the country. I think if our taxes pay their wages they should receive the same minimum wages that we get.
and i was also talking about elected officials? i mean where do you get that i was solely talking about republicans except for what they have done to block bills dealing with the subject you are posting about... so what exactly are you talking about? lol and you are a joke to even think you know what your posting ifyou don't even know what you are posting about .. minimum wage is both state and federally controlled LOL you can't be serious right? what's your minimum wage back there like 7.75? i believe that is the federal minimum .. and minimum wage just in the city of san fran alone is 10.00 an hour so what the heck are you talking about man? wow i should studdy law and government? HAHAH and i mean that with all seriouseness ... you don't even know how basic functioning of the government works! well ok genius let me thinkn .. umm if there are no jobs in the town i am living in then why the hhell would i still want to live there? lol i mean it's just common sense .. if you go where the money is then you will always have money and opprotunity .. wow you have a really skewed way of thinking... your telling me if someone stuck your hand on a frying pan and turned the burner on you would keep your hand there just to see what happens? lol what the hell.. and i hear you but then how many intellegent people would actually run for office? why would you strive to achieve something that offers nothing?... lol get outta hear with your way of thinking... what? are you really that dumb? corporations move factories over seas to offer cheaper labor which offers lower prices which makes things what? more affordable... if that companies headquarters is based here in the united states then guess what all of that overseas revenue is ultimately taxed here in the united states.. as profits earned by that company...in one form or another... and just who gets more "HELP" if your not a citizen .. who are they and what are they getting? and why don't you tell your state to set that standard.. they can do almost anything if they wanted too.. and no kidding they should tax them and that is what obama wants to do .. end tax cuts for outsourcing and give tax breaks for insourcing.. it's simple... and the average persons income in the US is 50k a year .. and these are some of the greatest leaders in the world and your asking them to become common when most of them have already been through that stage? these are great leaders we have some more than others.

No, I don't mean they will move their companies though that is a possibility. I was speaking of taxes being so steep that millionaires feel their personal income is taxed to a level that the individual feels his financial security is at risk. In other words, there is a certain level of taxes millionaires will pay and there is a threshold where they will leave. A person can live in America and have a manufacturing plant in China. If the government goes after that person's personal income, they will leave. Those are two completely different circumstances. You do know that corporate taxes and individual taxes are completely different don't you. Unless, of course you are a LLC or S corp in which they are pass through. Look, I have a successful business. Any successful business owner knows how supply and demand works. It is quite clear that you don't work in the business world or if you do, then you are not in management. Not even close. You give me a website to look at and you admit that it's probably not credible? I have simply pointed out how wrong the democrats are in their policies. I currently don't share anything with the democrats because they are pushing us away from the free markets and towards socialism. We can appeal all we want but if China doesn't listen and there are no consequences for their actions all an appeal does is make us feel good about our argument. It does nothing to change China's course of action. Why would you even point that out? Your posts are beginning to make less and less sense. You are simply bouncing around from topic to topic and just rambling the democratic talking points whether they are on topic or not. It's obvious that you don't know how to defend your position.

If you are working for minimum wage, you already have more government than you deserve. One minute you have corporations going overseas to avoid taxes, then you have them going overseas to avoid wages, consider that they are operating in a competitive global economy and they might go overseas to survive. If you , a grown man, is still working for minimum wage,they might not have much of a labor pool in this country.
actually I am not a man at all and I believe that all men are created equal. I have a degree in business management and 2 years away from degree in business law. If you lose your job at a company, do you expect that company to pay you for the rest of your life? Get real if you do! We are still paying elected officials that have not been in office for years. WHY? Because they manipulate the system in order to achieve what they want. The company I worked for didn't succeed after being in our community for many years. After the company moved majority of assembly overseas and to Mexico, quality was horrible and the factory here went thru hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of inventory which cost the company an excessive amount of labor overtime and loss of business. So their strategy didn't work. They have found ways to withhold retirement from employees and cut their salaries and hourly wages due to the economy. Our economy wouldn't be this bad if elected officials weren't paid as much as they are. They keep thinking of ways to fix the budget and none of their solutions involve a cut in their pay. The solutions they have cut into the working class, the elderly, and yes let's don't forget the ones that are fighting for our country and protecting their greedy ass. Think about some of those things before you jump to conclusions about somebody. You seem awfully quick to judge one by what they write or post. You don't know me and I don't know you, however I didn't judge you by what you said. I was merely stating the way I see the financial situation our country is in and I see so many people not only here, but many other places out of work. I have a family and I worry daily about them having to do without things they need, such as a place to lay their head at night, clothes to wear and food to eat.

<quoted text>"Your posts, for the most part, make no sense whatsoever because you are asking people to answer your questions in a manner that only fits your views." um no .. all the questions i have asked are simple questions asking .. essentially the same thing... what makes you think that what you just said is actually true.. what caused you to make those kinds of allegations with no factual evidence disscussed anywhere by anyoone except for those you work with or current family members?...thats how my questions are set up .. and have been proven time and time again to be putting an end to all this fear mongoring and lieing accusations
that have been tossed around like they are whole truths...and if someone who cannot see the truth or speak the truth must have the truth rudely told to them lol ... i would be alot more linient with my words but most republicans . not you because you are an independant .. have no morals for what comes out of their mouth incase you have not noticed by some name bashing on here... so that's why i call them those things... and i know the business is completely irrelivant to this discussion.. but ... to claim you own something and believe a certain way .. which was strongly right wing bs sense i have not seen one liberal thought on your side... and bring that up as a talking point in one of your posts can surely not be offended if someone asks what business it is? because you simpley brought it up .. may not have been in this post but you did bring it up ... so why not get some free advertisement? lol but it's your choice and i salute you for not disclosing the name because i would not want a good sensible establishment such as yours i assume you are running being degraded on a backwoods blog that everyone in that town seems to read lol
How have your points been proven time and time again? You are not an expert in anything you are talking about, and you say you get your message from credible sources yet you don't cite them. To be fair, I am not big on "sources" because rarely are they non partisan or firm. Just so you know the current director of the CBO, Douglas W. Elmendorf, is a democrat. If he has voluntarily selected to be a member of a party, I hardly think he will be non-partisan in today's political climate. I know that you think in ideal terms but rarely is any situation ideal when there are trillions of dollars involved and so much diversity in the lives affected by each decision made as there is here in America. I tend to think in terms of common sense. That's why I don't think the democratic way of spending our way out of a problem will work. You say I haven't answered any of your questions, though I have, you have yet to tell me how America will prosper or won't get into trouble spending $1.4 trillion more than we take in each year. You referred me to a budget proposal that had been studied by a partisan group of people. I just want you to carry it through showing revenue in and expenditures that go out and SHOW me when the deficit will be erased. To start, we will assume that everything is Bush's fault and the fault of the republican led house. Assuming Obama gets everything he wants with no opposition, I want you to SHOW me. I have stripped all of your excuses and scapegoats away so have at it.

instead of posting what you think you know maybe you should reaearch facts. Federal minimum wage is 7.25. Instead of thinking about studying law or talking crap why don't you spend a little less time on here and a little more time in a dictionary. Now everyone has a right to their opinion.

For the most part I completely agree with you on the politicians. We need to take the tax code, wrap all of the politicians up in it, because there are plenty of pages in the tax code to do such a thing, and throw the whole thing in the trash. The tax code and our elected officials are an embarrassment to this great nation. The millitary doesn't get near the respect or support they deserve for what they do. Thanks for the post.

are you also going to assume that we are not in a recession or never went through one?.. i am not going to recite what i have already posted in many other posts f you cannot remember what i have posted it is a lack on your part not mine i have gave you examples and posted near accurate numbers.. and have givin you links to several postings i have did my part .. do your homework like i do and prove your point ...educate yourself onn what the other person is saying .. that's what these posts or debates have been about .. if i had said ANYTHING that you do not agree with LOOK IT UP ... tell me exactly where i was wrong just like i have told you and every other person on here time and time again... and http://www.cbo.gov/about/overview that should answer your CBO bs your trying to smear... and just how do you know he's a democrat?... i have asked multiple questions and you have povided nothing but the same lines ... you are still avoiding questions i have asked with no responses in just my last posts... and the democratic way does not work?.. do you remember the last time a democrat was in office before obama?.. clinton created 22.7 million jobs more than reagan and both bushes combined... 42 million democrat created jobs comparedto 21 million if you add up all job creation since 1960... so which party knows what they are talking about?... and still you end with repeating to tell me too to answer somethign i have already discussed and proved to you .. you just have to let it al sink in .. read the numbers in the previous posts again if you have too but i am not repeating myself for your amusement... and to assume that the budget is gonna 0 itself out at some point in time is just an idiotic idea as i have said our debt is measured realative to gdp.. so you do the math .. you find the numbers that iposted about 5 pages ago and you run them you said you did but you don't know exactly how the economy and government works so you hve noooooo idea what yu are doing and that's ok leave it to the professionals like i said ....which like i also said are not me.. but i have posted what they come up with so just do the research yourself instead of relying on everyone else to look the stuff up .
