I seen what was happening over there, money be thrown away by the handfuls Just to bribe religious leaders not to kill each other, letting Iraq people pimp out Iraq people for 5 bucks a day. When they paid the pimp Iraq civilian 10,000 a day to work them. It was all a joke. Besides my buddies getting killed for nothing . By being put in a no win situation. So , u republicans can't talk all this shit about Obama And all your talking is coming out of the side of your ass. If you want to blame somebody. Blame bush. Obama has been trying to clean that dudes mess up from day 1. And it will take. 4 more years. After Obama To even see. If we can ever get back to the days. We had money in the bank in this country.( bill Clinton ). Surplus. And bush. Went through it like it was play money.
WO WO WO! "YOU REPUBLICANS"!?!? Rather closed minded there. In the 10 plus years that WE have been in Iraq & Afghanistan BOTH parties have been in control of the funding with little or NO difference so do not be partisan about who is to blame. Just another example of the TWO parties NOT being that different.
Obama has NOT closed Gitmo, has NOT ended Afghanistan, did NOT end the Iraqi war sooner than was already scheduled.
So please do not single out Geo W Bush or Repubs since there was & is plenty of reasponsability to go around, even today.
Thanx for your tours of Iraq. I have a son that served Afghanistan

<quoted text>

I have a coworker that lives near the airport. He has lived there for many years and even raised his family there.
The airport decided to put in a new runway several years ago. Now the planes that use that runway take different air routes which is over his home; not that planes didn't fly over his home anyway.
I don't know which government it was, but the government decided to respond to the complaints about the airplanes. They sent workers to his house, installed all brand new windows and doors, insulation, central air so that he could close his new windows and doors and not hear the airplanes.
If noise from airplanes bothered you, WTF did you move by the airport?
I wrote this before but I'll reiterate in the event you missed it:
I'm a full time truck driver and have to use my phone for communications with my employer from time to time. I'm also a landlord which requires me to use my phone to contact workers, my father when he is working on the apartments or grounds, the bank, my tenants, the insurance company and so on.
Obviously these government phone plans are not a necessity, but a luxury. They are not using those minutes to look for jobs, contact emergency services, staying in contact with an ill family member. We are forced to pay for these plans and phones for recreational use. I'm against that. Do you know what it would take to get a cell phone with a 250 per month minute plan each month? About a half of a days work at McDonalds. And most of their restaurants are always looking for any kind of help.
Cynical? I have an unlimited plan & probably do not use 200 talk minutes per month plus unlimited texting. I spend $35 per month which is not a bad deal.
IF someone is hunting for a job, they could use 100's of minutes per month after month. At least WE aren't paying for their internet too which may be next.
LOOK, I have too many in-laws that are as useful as running shoes on a snail so I know the routine. They even tell each other as to which case worker to see or avoid & how to fill out forms. They collectively work the system. That's my problem & your problem, too little over site as to who is entitled to what.
I am very glad that they are in-laws & not blood.

No, that would not be fair at all. Good thing it's just a paranoid, greed driven fantasy, created by the very wealthy, to make corporate fetch boys like yourself comply to an agenda that doesn't include you.

Now fair would be making these offshore tax dodging corporations and multi-millionaires pay their share instead of hard working, tax paying middle class men like myself carrying the entire nation on our backs.

#21613 Oct 31, 2013
Time for a major wake up call: We will have Sara Marie Brenner re-running or Powell City council and land developer/parking lot mobster Vincent Marginello running for Liberty Township thrustee <===not a typo!!! Add Peggy Guzzo to the mix and we are so S C R E W E D.
Point #1: You should never have a trustee who is also a land developer. Thatís a major conflict of interest there.
Point #2: Sara Marie Brenner is so close to Vince Marginello they wear the same underwear. They both backed the contracting of law enforcement to Delaware County Sheriff and where against the Fire Levy that nearly shut down Liberty Township Fire department. Having VM as Liberty Township Trustee and SMB reelected councilwoman is just not logical.
Point #3: Ask each of them about community involvement. SMB will probably say that serving as councilwoman is serving the community. Ask her about her failure to pay federal payroll taxes (a convictable felony). Ask SMB about her F rating with the BBB. Now ask VM about how he helps Powell. Ask him about his parking lot fetish. Ask him if he is a member of the Powell Chamber and how he kicked out the Powell Farmerís Market use of his lot after he agreed to let them use it.
Itís time people do their research on candidates and quit this bullshit shot gun voting. Be aware; understand the dynamics of your community. Challenge all candidates. Get out of your SUV and think about Powellís future.

The federal tax revenue pie chart is less than 12% made up of corporate taxes.

When you tax a corporation more that's the first expense passed on to consumers as embedded taxes. It only makes corporations the tax collector. The individual consumer is ALWAYS the one who gets stabbed in the neck. And workers lose their jobs.

When people want to tax corporations more thats only incentive for them to take jobs and leave the country.

With the pie chart only 12% corp taxes, why not just lower corp taxes to zero and suck in corporations from around the world and make it so everyone who wants a job can have one? If and when there becomes a shortage of workers look at what wages did in N.Dakota recently.

Blah blah blah, the poor little CEO sob story you have been trained so well to parrot. Take your pie chart and apply it to how the "job creators" wealth and bonuses have grown exponentially while the average household income has flat lined. Let's see a pie chart of the huge and growing gap between the haves and the have nots. Let's see some graphics on how long our nation has been an underpaid temp workforce for decades before Obama was president and how many of the same corporations that cry about health insurance haven't even been paying for it because it is covered by the temp hiring service. Those treasonous companies fled America in search of cheap labor as a direct result of their ever growing greed and it had nothing to do with this free loading American work force you Tea Baggers dream about so much. I have seen with my own eyes co-workers cutting off fingers, being burnt with molten steel as their asbestos fire suits were burning, people being burnt with acid, stuff pansy @ssed trust fund boys like you couldn't even imagine. Don't tell me or any working man in these parts about your corporate fetch boy Tea Bagger "job creators have it so rough" bullsh1t because American workers and voters have made it very clear to you and your 30% approval rating that they aren't buying it.

I don't see how. People that live in rural areas live there for a reason. They don't like or need modern conveniences. They don't like city water, sewers, highways and so on.
As a boy, I lived on a farm. We lived there because we farmed the land, not because we didn't appreciate modern conveniences. We didn't have running water. That meant we had to use an outhouse. A bath meant we had to get water from the well, and heat it on our wood burning stove. Did we like it? No.

Without the roads we wouldn't have been able to get our crops to market.(Thank that crazy liberal Eisenhower for the interstate system, which now provides your livelihood.)

We were very grateful for electricity and the telephone (neither of which we could have afforded if we had to string our own lines.) When there were emergencies, the telephone was often a life saver(literally.) I'm glad that the folks in government back then didn't share your ideas about rural life.

Because they are looking for work, and need a way for potential employers to contact them? Maybe to arrange for child care while they work? Or need to report a fire or call for an ambulance? Or to check in on a sick relative?

Who said anything about roads? Roads are in the constitution, phones are not.

My father grew up the same way: no running water, no natural gas, no electricity. Not once have I ever heard him say he wished government would have taken other people's money and give it to them so they could have had a more comfortable life.

And what were you doing on a farm as a boy? Was it your parents farm? If so, it was they that decided to give you that kind of life. We have no choice of what kind of life we wish to have until we reach the age of 18 and then make our own decisions.

I'm sure there are plenty of Amish kids who grew up with less than you. Many continue the order but others leave.

It's amazing how people survive without the federal government. Until the nanny state came along, it's a wonder how we didn't become extinct.

Nah. Just take a ride through the ghetto sometime. You'll see all these people walking around with one hand on their Obama phone and the other on a paper bag wrapped bottle. Or for example the tenants I just evicted. One large dog, three cats, a physically abled bodied person that didn't work and their Obama phone. This is not to mention their $250.00 per month in food stamps.

Yeah, they begged me not to kick them out, but they got too behind in rent. I told them that I only give breaks to people that try. I suggested they get rid of the animals so they have four less mouths to feed, get rid of the cable and high speed internet, have the woman get a part-time job on the weekend to increase their household income, quit supporting their 15 year old daughters cigarette habit, or perhaps quit smoking themselves, but that was way too much to ask an Obama phone family. Tomorrow, I have to take a second day off of work to attend court thanks to these lowlifes. They were evicted on the 14th and I'm still trying to put the place back together. The woman told me she couldn't get a job for extra income because it would threaten her food stamps.

When it comes to going around the block, you have five blocks to catch up with me. Before I became a truck driver, I used to deliver and repair home medical equipment. I know how the so-called poor live. I've been in their homes thousands of times given that I spent ten years in the business. I know how these people live. I had a HUD house right next door. One tenant used to keep her windows open all winter long. Why not? She didn't pay for her own heat.

Sure they are. Just look at DumBama's ratings. Sinking every week.

I bet you didn't know that the price to hire temporary workers includes the cost of what it takes to have those people work for that service. It's just like your employer. He or she as to deduct what it costs to support your benefits before they can come to a wage. Temporary agencies do the exact same thing, so the company that hired the service IS paying for their healthcare. It's included in the hourly rate they charge their customers.

The reason companies do hire temporary temporary workers is because we have allowed the liberals to promote irresponsibility. When you promote irresponsibility, don't be surprised when you have more irresponsible people. Many companies find it beneficial to hire temporary workers because it's much easier to get rid of them when they are sent lazy irresponsible workers.
