I really wanted to vote Demo this time, especially after the HB5 fiasco. But WHY on earth would they pick a running mate with a train load of issues including oweing thousands in taxes? I think the demo candidate is playing the race card to get the black vote and is going to pay a very heavy price. Worse, we are too getting stuck with Kasich another 4.
Not really. He may run for President so it might not be that long. President Kasich. I like it!

Agreed. It's just I get sick of these liberals that live in their own little bubble thinking that the conservative point of view is to end all social programs. No conservative believes that, but it's like the race card they always try to play. They figure they can make you feel guilty by throwing out the charge.
Speaking of race, 73% of all black women have children out of wedlock. Being single and raising children is proportional with poverty. But I guess it would be heartless to have those women not have children until they were financially stable and in a secure relationship. Our liberal government promotes irresponsibility.

"The CEO of Goldman Sachs is telling the American people to lower their expectations for benefits from Social Security and Medicare and Medicaid so that he and his wealthy friends can keep their tax breaks. Just about the arrogance of these guys on Wall Street who were bailed out by the middle-class of this country when their greed nearly destroyed the International Financial System and now they lecture the American people about the needs to cut programs for working families because of the recession they caused. Maybe the CEO's on Wall Street should lower their expectations before working families lower theirs."

"The GOP has given the wealthiest portion of the population tax breaks and are screaming for more. Then they come before the American people and are saying, we don't have enough money to protect the sick and the old."

It's funny how you think this country was the Garden of Eden until that evil half-black, half-white man got elected into office twice.

He is telling the truth too that the American People that have choosen to depend on Social Security, Medicare, & Medicaid better lower their expectations for benefits from Social Security and Medicare and Medicaid because the Federal Government is broke now and the Clinton Adminstaration confirmed it in 2000 and the only way to pay for those Welfare Enititlement programs is to raise taxes substantially since the Federal Government is broke now.

These [Trust Fund] balances are available to finance future benefit payments and other Trust Fund expenditures—but only in a bookkeeping sense.... They do not consist of real economic assets that can be drawn down in the future to fund benefits.

Instead, they are claims on the Treasury that, when redeemed, will
have to be financed by raising taxes, borrowing from the public, or reducing benefits or other expenditures. The existence of large Trust Fund balances, therefore, does not, by itself, have any impact on the Government’s ability to pay benefits.

Why don't we start with what caused them to get into that position in the first place: government.

Remember, you can't selloff bad securities unless you have those bad securities to begin with. This all started long ago with the desire to turn irresponsible people into homeowners. It didn't work and couldn't work, but it sure bought a lot of votes.

I don't think our government should bail anybody out be it banks or auto manufacturers. It's bad enough we are creating irresponsible individuals, but now we are funding irresponsible institutions. As long as we keep pumping tax dollars to cover the mistakes of others, nobody will ever learn a thing. They will continue to exist in a precarious way. Secondly we need for government to stop telling businesses how to run their business.

Why my previous post was 'judged' as it was judged, is interesting to say the least.

Where do you get that I am fighting to suppress wages? Just curious. Heck,of course I wish mine was higher but I get paid what the market pays for my job. I wouldn't expect to get paid $11 an hour to flip burgers any more than I would expect $11 an hour to be a dental hygienist. Pay is all comparative to need,function,training/schooli ng, etc.
I have had much higher paying jobs in the past, much higher! But life unfolds for all of us in different ways for whatever reason(s)& that is just how it goes.

I'm certain that some people are missing my msg & that others don't care. I am trying to say that the system needs more supervision & discretion when processing claims.
There will ALWAYS be those that slip thru either way...that's the way all of life is, it can be unfair.
As in my previous post, these people are professional CON artist welfare recipients. Everyone of them capable of working, everyone of them! Why haven't they been caught by now after DECADES? LACK of supervision, that's why.
People like this are stealing tax payer funds that can help the more deserving, that's a double theft!

Liberals will never understand this. They think companies started up so people could have jobs. It's not business to them, it's a social obligation of some sort.

Liberals believe that if you drop out of school, make no attempt to better yourself, don't invest your money or hold off on a family until you are ready for one, somebody should pay you an excellent wage for turning nuts onto bolts. You are not responsible for the wages you make--your employer is.

Liberals believe they lie in judgment as to who should make what. If a multi-millionaire is paying his workers ten dollars an hour, it's dishonorable, and he should lower his income so that others can have more regardless whether they are worth more or not.

Liberals don't understand that their wages are based on what their work can be sold for. They don't understand that their value is that of what anybody else would work for. Supply and Demand.

So they sit and cry about what employers are paying, and then support a party that wants to grant amnesty so those wages will be lowered even more. And then they have the gall to tell US that "WE" vote against our own interest. LOL!

I agree with that and hope their repayment will come after their last breath on this earth. But I disagree with you about supervision. It's intentional. That's the way politicians work. Give people stuff.

Advertising food stamps on the radio is not a slip-up. These liberals want people to be on food stamps. They want that control and vote. It's the reason we are struggling with Commie Care today and will be even more in the coming years. These are not one or two people that slipped through the cracks. I believe it's millions of people.

The voters need to realize what made this country great on the world stage & what it takes to keep it that way, the Pride & Envy of all others as our founders set it up to be.
The bail out of GM could be argued as criminal. THE Government does NOT belong so engaged in the private market. NOW the taxpayer is coming up on the short end of the stick by about $10,000,000,000.
Why didn't Holding Companies or others come to GM's aid? But more importantly, why was GM worth the risk after selling off Oldsmobile, Pontiac, Saab, Hummer, Saturn, Delco & more?
Just as importantly or more importantly, WHY didn't GM's own voting board make leadership changes years & years before?
Taxpayer dollars did NOT belong being involved in this.
Obama campaigned on Romney NOT wanting to bail out GM. Inspite of the possible job losses, Romney was right & Obama wrong since GM still factually went bankrupt but with the citizens bailing them out at a loss for the PRIVATE market.
About the same as the 'shovel ready jobs' or the Stimulus funds that pretty much went down the drain, AGAIN DIRECTLY for the PRIVATE sector. And again, with NO monetary return to the taxpayer. In FACT, there is NOW an I.O.U. to the Chinese for these actions.

<quoted text>How about cutting back on all the unnecessary corporate/farmer welfare while we're at it?
If unemployment is so bad under Commiebama, it's because those "super patriotic job creators" aren't doing their jobs, just like the self entitled hand-me-down farmers who take huge gubment handouts just to NOT work.
Oh, but I'm guessing you're okay with those entitlement programs, right. As long as nobody gets an imaginary Obamaphone... lol
IF you are being specific about 'corporate farmers', I am totally in your corner even though the cost of groceries may go up.
'Obama phones' are not imaginary, just improperly named.
I DO believe that family farms should be protected as all but sacred. Family farms are disappearing at a natural rate anyway. They are very hard work for a small return that is significantly affected by smaller families & Mother Nature already. But again, corporate farms need to carry their own risk short of tornadoes, floods & whatever that insurance & federal EMERGENCY funds should cover.
As far as jobs go, companies need to predict what expenses are including future expanses to plan sales, production, purchases & consequently employment needs will be. THAT is the uncertainity of today's issues.
One of the benefits to ALL about Capitalism is that by nature, cost are minimalized to maximize profits versus the competition & pass the lower cost on to the buyer which is good for all.
YES. This affects employee pay because that is part of the over all formula.

Have you never seen any articles on Boards of Directors? Every one of them are on multiple boards of multiple companies. They keep their crony buddies backs patted and pockets overflowing in their good ol' boys clubs that very few other people belong to. You harped long and hard just on GM and ignored the Big Banks 2 bailouts. One from Bush with no strings attached, so they stayed business as usual with huge bonuses and lavish conferences at resorts. Then they came back for a second round under Obama, except he was smart enough to put restrictions on that one. The GM bailout has been a success, saving jobs and leading to large expansions of employees and factories, while Wall Street and the big banks have been shedding employees while wallowing in record breaking profits. Let alone the common fact that they just about own capital hill now.
